Huge March Planned for Eve of Katrina Evictions

By David Swanson

A march had been planned for February 28, the eve of the scheduled March 1 evictions of Hurricane Katrina victims. FEMA moved the evictions to March 15, so activists have moved the march to March 14. A press conference on Capitol Hill will be followed by a march through Washington, D.C., past FEMA, past the Department of Homeland Security, and to the White House, where a permit has been obtained to rally in Lafayette Square Park until midnight. If Bush does not meet the marchers' demands, however, many plan not to leave.

My LTTE to the NY Times re: the UAE ports deal

My LTTE to the NY Times re: the UAE ports deal

Edited on Thu Feb-23-06 03:05 PM by brooklynite
Democratic Underground

I would like to join David Brook's plea for an end to the xenophobic anti-Arab reactions to the Dubai ports deal being made by our politicians and pundits ("Kicking Arabs in the Teeth", Feb 23). But, in doing so, I have to wonder where his concern has been for the past four years. Ever since 9/11, the Administration and its supporters, who pride themselves on "controlling the message", have apparently been happy to let firebrands like Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh and Rev. Pat Robertson stir up the conservative base in support of the Administration's war and security policies with anti-muslim and anti-Arab rhetoric that garners at most an occasional "tut, tut" when the oratory goes too far. Now that a business deal with the Arab world is pending, its not surprising that the angry emotional responses can't be curtailed. Perhaps a call for less teeth kicking would have been more productive at the start of our "War on Terror", rather than at this late date.

Spreading & Deepening the Movement to Drive Out the Bush Regime

From the National Steering Committee of World Can't Wait, 2/21

When the President used the State of the Union address January 31 to relentlessly push his case for unending war on the world, unimpeded domestic spying, faith-based initiatives and an attack on stem cell research and abortion, some reported this as a "moderate speech with no new proposals." But there was a different response in the streets of more than 60 cities, when tens of thousands perceived Bush’s address as a State of Emergency. Then, Saturday, over two thousand came right to the White House to demand "Bush Step Down and Take Your Program with You!"
