HUD's Public Housing Privatization Scheme "PETRA" Is Rejected (tags)
People across the nation are speaking out against the scheme to privatize 1.2 million public housing units, under a HUD proposal called Transforming Rental Assistance (TRA) initiative.

STERN'S GANG SEIZES YHW UNION HALL IN OAKLAND (tags)
This mob, thirty, maybe forty strong, mostly very nicely dressed white men for this side of struggling Oakland, was led by a young female lawyer – there were a couple of nasty ex-cops in tow, just in case. They used bolt-cutters to get through the parking-lot gates in back; they smashed their way through a second floor window, then pushed their way to the front, where they opened the doors, let in the rest of the mob in and then ended the occupation – evicting the (former) members of United Healthcare Workers-West (UHW) from their union hall, their house. “Who’s House, Our House!” No more.
Of sowing and harvests: Subcomandante Marcos' speech on Gaza (tags)
Two days ago, the same day we discussed violence, the ineffable Condoleezza Rice, a US official, declared that what was happening in Gaza was the Palestinians' fault, due to their violent nature.

Why does Obama hate Iran, support Israel?? (tags)
Both Democrats/Republicans appear eager for a U.S. military conflict with Iran, citing Iran's imaginary nuclear program as prime reason, while land in North America (Newe Sogobia, NV, NTS) remains a nuclear weapons testing site & nuclear waste dump under U.S. military occupation. Hypocrisy anyone??
