Columbus Day Protest, Downtown L.A.
Columbus Day has been suffering setbacks of late. Minneapolis; Berkeley, California; and most recently Seattle now observe Indigenous People's Day. San Francisco has Italian Heritage Day; Hawaii, Discoverers Day (i.e., the discovery of the islands by Polynesians); and South Dakota, Native American Day. Venezuela dropped Columbus Day in 2002 in favor of Day of Indigenous Resistance. Mexico, El Salvador, Argentina, and other countries celebrate Dia de la Raza*. While Columbus Day's still recognized here in Southern California, a new annual protest occurs in downtown L.A. (image/jpeg)

text Did LA pro-Israel group conceal right-wing identity from Hollywood celebs and media? Adalah-NY 2014-09-04 11:39 AM
On August 23, the Los Angeles group Creative Community for Peace (CCFP) released a widely reported on statement in Billboard Magazine - “200 Hollywood Heavyweights Support Israel.” What was not reported is that CCFP is a “creative” front group for the right-wing, pro Israeli settler nonprofit StandWithUs, that has a close relationship with the Israeli government. Though CCFP carefully avoids explaining this on their website and materials, CCFP is the same legally-registered nonprofit as StandWithUs (SWU), and, as of October 2013, operated from within SWU’s LA office.

text More about KPFK via Pacifica turmoils kpfk loyal volunteer 2014-08-05 6:29 PM
as Updates appear, they are being excerpted here reposted for LOCALS to also follow if anyone is interested. To all appearances, the conflicts continue as unresolved as nations within nations do, without the physical bullets and rockets but with the same intents and results it seems. Some are not going to seek out information so this seems to be a site where some PACIFICA and it’s local affiliate KPFK doings and undoings are being revealed. Not because it is appreciated or can be ‘helped’ but because at least, it is said, “it is good to know..even if….” yes, there are a few "other" views/ sides/ opponents and different ways the stories are being told too. See elsewhere for those. (text/plain)

text Water in California - info proliferated now is dubious wetter waterer 2014-07-28 5:04 PM
Constant fear productions proliferate our minds and our lives, without many questioning. Water shortage is the latest catastrophe being hawked to TheAmericanLittlePeople who use a teensy bit for clean 3rd worldish lives in So.California. The attempts to cause more insecurity, uncertainty and Blame the Ordinary Residents, i.e. of Los Angeles, vs. the agriculture businesses in No.CA and the commercial businesses everywhere is the usual - YOU must be to blame and we will punish you for using 'too' much precious water. The break-up community aspect is for neighbors to anonymously report about another's water usage with the righteous pride of having caught a 'bad guy' slyly is like East Germany's Stasi's games - spies living amongst each other so everyone distrusts and worries and can thus be Controlled. Oh no, here too ? Water is scarcer than before but still available and drinkable and for cleaning, in individual lives, not just in money-gathering-places of business, anywhere, even in LA. Wonder about what we hear and read and then ask, how did we 'suddenly' arrive at this desert from which we dare not escape or move ? Question those who like to hawk their fear-wares and fame flames of scarcity, that then elicits herd-obedience in that fear place. Can this be yet another 'conspiracy' that is not theoretical but created for political or financial purposes ? Could it be ? (text/plain)

text Pacifica clearly endangered. Reposting info here: kpfk loyal volunteer 2014-07-28 2:34 PM
This is a repost of an email being made available to many who care about keeping the Pacifica 5 stations together vs. some PNB members who want to sell off 3 ailing radio stations to maintain the remaining 2 in California. - - - - - - - If you want to : Please sign their court petition at http://www.jotformpro.com/PDGG/petition Otherwise, the information contained in this reposting may update what else is secreted and not-known-in-LA because there is no transparency, no openness and only requests for $$$ pledges by local KPFK.

text Who declares themselves to be the ultimate-only-valid-authority here on current wars elsew careful critical reader 2014-07-27 11:11 AM
So many good fotos shared about the most recent and continuous conflicts, be they about Israel and Palestine, about Ukraine and Russia, about anyplace ELSE than in the UStatesA. Each commentator claiming to know ‘the facts’, the holy only truth, the right answer, the wrong ‘other’ or the ‘poor victim’. Exhortations and declarations are good reading on Indy but many forget that opinions and alliances do not make honesty, impartial research, ‘facts’ and reality that will be believed …later. Like all the FIA hindsight revealed, so much is said by media and individual common people writing here are arrogantly acting as-if they were the One and Only One who is RIGHT! …huh ? how many ‘rights’ are there here and how long does that claim last over even a few years or months of time ?
