https://sydneywithhonduras.wordpress.com/2019/09/20/71868/ This August in Honduras.. the education sector students and staff strikes continue as had the repression, and after 18 months, political prisoners Edwin Espinal and Raul Alvarez were released on bail, while Rommel and Gustavo remained locked up. Developments about to kick off to build luxury apartments on the outskirts of Tegucigalpa on the national park La Tigra attempting against the environment and the water supplies of the many, so resistance was growing against these.

LOS ANGELES, November 25, 2011 – While the mass hysteria of consumerism raged in shopping malls around the country, the occupiers of Solidarity Park provided a glimpse of a better way of life. The camp is now the last of the large camps remaining in the nation after police raids have evicted camps in most all other major cities. And with today’s late afternoon announcement by the mayor it seems there may only be two more days left for the camp in its present form and location.

DASNY Lawyer, McLish, Tries to Keep out Evidence (tags)
Mr. Mclish is now attempting to amend subpoenas issued by court order to various present and former DASNY staff members. Mr. Mclish is basically arguing that these witnesses should not have to bring with them any and all correspondence, email, letters, memos etc during the months of October 1999 – February 2000. The most notable documents missing are those that existed in December 1999. It seems that although DASNY had used their email system relating to this project for at least 18 months prior to December 1999 and heavily in the months that followed, apparently there were no emails, memos or letters, sent internally, during the month of December 1999. Are we to believe this? I don’t think so. What other damaging information could there be that Mr. Mclish is trying to cover-up?

GMA AND TEODORO CANNOT CLAIM THE VETERANS VICTORY AS THEIRS (tags)
We wrote this letter as a rejoinder to the steady stream of propaganda from the Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) and ever willing Philippine government functionaries led by Secretary of Defense Gilberto Teodoro and his lackeys namely PVAO retired General Ernesto Carolina and their paid hacks. But the glaring fact it is more than six months now when the Stimulus Bill was passed and only less than 3,000 Filipino veterans in the United States have received their checks. We want to know what keeping the claims so slow. The United States is deliberately using the claims as a propaganda tool to make the Filipino people accept their Visiting Forces Agreement (VFA) and the proposed changes in the 1987 constitution that will give them 100% ownership of Philippine lands and corporations.
Claims DELAYED, JUSTICE DENIED (tags)
Despite the Letter from the Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) to the Justice for Filipino American Veterans (JFAV) dated September 4, 2009 in reply to our questions, the national alliance based in Los Angeles continues to receive numerous complaints from Filipino World War II veterans on the slow process of their claims. It is more than six months now when the Stimulus Bill was passed and only less than 2,000 Filipino veterans in the United States have received their checks. We want to know what keeping the claims so slow. Therefore, we are afraid and have to tell the veterans and their dependents that the claims will take another 18 months at most to be all be paid to tall of them.

Two months after on August 13, 1898, the United States occupied Manila and seven months later on Feb 4, 1899 declared war on the Philippines and crushed the young republic. 111 years later the Filipinos are still in struggle for true independence and sovereignty. With the VFA imposed,active US intervention and a culture of impunity of human rights violations forced on the Filipinos-- the Alliance-Philippines (AJLPP) and its allies commemorate Philippine Independence with fierce struggle in the United States with the following activities:

Despite ‘good news,’ Iraq is not OK (tags)
"There are more sources that are closer to credibility than any of the ones above. Independent reports such as the survey of Iraqi households in the Lancet, estimating that by July 2006, 655,000 Iraqis died as a consequence of war. UK-based polling agency Opinion Research Business reached even a higher number, in September 2007, suggested that 1.2 million people might have died as a result of the war. But no number can do justice to the hurt felt by Iraqi people, so many of whom perished by the firepower of their “liberators.” On Dec. 28, 14 Iraqis were reportedly killed, and 64 others were wounded in a Baghdad square crowded with shoppers following the Friday prayer. I wonder if the many families that collectively share the latest tragedy in Baghdad will find some peace and comfort in the figures and statistics issued by the US military and disseminated cheerfully be the media. I wonder how the people of the bloody Tayaran Square would respond to the question: “Is Iraq getting better?” Would any reporter even bother to ask them their thoughts?"

It is IMPOSSIBLE to cancel an AOL account (tags)
It is IMPOSSIBLE to cancel an AOL account! This is standard opperating procedure for AOL. They are crooks!!!! Almost 10 years ago I worked for American Express in Phoenix as a contract computer programmer writting software that allowed AOL subscribers to get information about their American Express Credit cards. As a part of my job I was required to get an AOL account which I billed AMEX every month, and which AMEX promptly paid for. I never used AOL in my private life. When I left American Express for another job it took at least 6 months of letter writting by me before I got AOL to cancel my account and stop billing me. I am sure it was a very intentional that AOL continued to bill me after I told them I did not want to use their services any more. Other people I have talked to have had the same experience when trying to cancel their AOL accounts - ie: AOL bills them for months after they want to cancel the account.
