WED 9/8: LA to Launch Divest from Israel CA Ballot Initiative (tags)
Californians committed to peace and justice for Palestine-Israel will launch the statewide campaign of California ballot Initiative 10-0020 with a signing ceremony in front of the Israeli Consulate in Los Angeles on Wednesday, September 8, 2010. Although California has adopted policies requiring divestment from Sudan, Iran and other nations, this is the first ballot measure in the nation aimed at changing Israeli policies through divestment by State agencies. It directs California’s large public employee and teacher pension funds to be consistent with their responsible investing policies and to divest from companies that violate the human rights of Palestinians. The description provided by the office of the Attorney General when it approved the measure for circulation last week says that the initiative “prohibits state retirement funds from investing in companies engaged in certain business activities in Israel.”
Scientists Identify the Presence of High-Tech Explosives in the Dust from "9/11" (tags)
Professor Emeritus Steven Jones, PhD, and eight additional independent scientists and researchers have used advanced techniques to identify a form of the high-tech explosive nano-thermite in the dust samples collected from numerous locations in New York City following the events of September 11, 2001. This is nothing less than conclusive scientific evidence that fires from the planes’ jet fuel are NOT what brought down the Towers, as we have been led to believe. It is time for an independent investigation into this crime, with the power to subpoena witnesses.
