The August 24 March on Washington: Why We Need a New Civil Rights and Labor Movement (tags)
It could have been left as a relatively small event that would make little impact, but plans for the 50th anniversary of 1963â€²s March on Washington appear to have taken another course.
Zimmerman’s Acquittal and the Call for a New Civil Rights Movement (tags)
George Zimmerman has been found innocent of both second-degree murder and manslaughter for the killing of Trayvon Martin. In spite of Zimmerman’s history as a neighborhood watchman employing racial profiling; in spite of the fact that he was armed with a gun and Trayvon was not; in spite of the fact that he stalked Trayvon in a way that anyone would find threatening; in spite of his recorded menacing comments about “f…king punks,” that “these assholes always get away”; and in spite of his defiance of a 911 operator who told him he did not need to follow Trayvon, Zimmerman is free.

Black August (tags)
Now for the wonderful citizens living in Los Angeles. For more information on me you shold contact Alec Baldwin His helping me was very interesting. Alex is a great Patriot. His studio is in Santa Monica. He and Jennifer were woking on a great movie project about Robert F Simone. Alec Baldwin knows a winning script always. Jennifer is the brains behind this fantactic movie that will be an oscar winner. Her choice of music from Tosca is perfect and Jennifer Lynn Masaryk Ellis deserves the best. That is why Phil Spector asked her to marry him back in 2004. Phil is innocent and Bruce Cutler is not the correct lawyer for him. Roger Rosen from Century City and Robert Shapiro are instead. I would love to see the press give Phil a chance. How about the press cover the problems he has had to bear losing a child to an inept hospital in Los Angeles. Phil is a genius and he can not harm a soul. I know so much more than you could ever know. The tazering by the LAPD is cruel and uncalled for. Well LA is a police state and that will change once I testify against Dick Cheney. By the way Phil Spector is the co-writer to the song Imagine. Enjoy the link.

GEORGE SOROS' EVIL EMPIRE IS EXPOSED (Attn: LA Indymedia) (tags)
This is an interesting analysis of Billionaire finanical predator, George Soros, and his covert funding and sponsorship of the pro-establisment "Peace movement" in the USA. Soros' empire not only has its tentacles in the Peace movement but also in the (cough, cough)"Alternative" media outlets which have desperately tried to downplay and smear any questioning of US government sponsorship/involvement in 9-11 as "conspiracy theory." Soros has also provided funding to Indymedia(!) with its contribution to LA Indymedia during the protests at the Democratic Party convention in 2000.
