CRTC: What Does It Serve a Nation?

CRTC: What Does it Serve a Nation?
by C. L. Cook
I received word the other day, Vancouver's Co-Op Radio (CFRO) is being run through the bulrushes by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC), who question the station's commitment to 'Canadian Content' (CC) requirements.
 
The Georgia Straight, a long time alternative media voice in Vancouver reported the commission, following a one week survey of Co-Op's radio logs, found:
 
  • "The CRTC ordered Co-op radio to appear at next month's hearing after the regulator calculated that Co-op radio broadcast 32.8 percent Canadian content in the category of "general music" during the week November 5 to 11, 2006. The station is required to broadcast 35 percent Canadian content in this category."

Kenya: On the Edge of Calamity

Kenyan President Offers Unity Government Opposition rejects idea
by CBC News
Kenya's president says he's ready to form "a government of national unity" to help resolve disputed election results that sparked deadly riots in his country over the past week, but the opposition leader is standing firm on his demands to rerun the Dec. 27 vote.

President Mwai Kibaki made the offer Saturday during a meeting with the leading U.S. diplomat for Africa, Jendayi Frazer.

Haditha: No Justice for Iraq Atrocity

There Will Be Blood...But No Justice for Iraq Atrocity
by Chris Floyd
The headline in Friday's Washington Post says it all: "No Murder Charges Filed in Haditha Case."

Two years ago, a group of Marines killed 24 Iraqi civilians -- including women and children cowering in their own homes -- in a revenge rampage in Haditha. Once the story emerged from the usual layers of lies and cover-up, the atrocity flared briefly on the public stage and eight of the Marines and their officers were charged "with murder or failing to investigate an apparent war crime," as the Post reports.
 
But public attention moved swiftly on, and over the past few months, the Pentagon's "military justice" system has quietly reduced or dropped charges against most of the men. Yesterday's announcement signaled the final climb-down in the case, leaving only a single Marine, Staff Sgt. Frank Wuterich, facing a charge of voluntary manslaughter, and lesser charges against one other enlisted man and two officers.

Atrocity-Linked U.S. Officials Advising Democratic, GOP Presidential Frontrunners

Vote for Change? Atrocity-Linked U.S. Officials Advising Democratic, GOP Presidential Frontrunners
by Democracy Now!
Independent journalist Allan Nairn and American Conservative correspondent Kelley Beaucar Vlahos discuss a little-addressed facet of the 2008 campaign: many of the top advisers to leading presidential candidates are ex-U.S. officials involved in atrocities around the world.


AMY GOODMAN: Presidential candidates are scrambling to win last-minute support in Iowa ahead of tonight’s caucus. Thousands of reporters have also descended on Iowa this week, covering everything from Mike Huckabee’s haircut to John Edwards’s rally with singer John Mellencamp. But little attention has been paid to perhaps one of the most important aspects of the candidates: their advisers, the men and women who likely form the backbone of the candidate’s future cabinet if elected president. Many of the names will be familiar.

Surge: Drowning, Not Waving in Iraq

Despite ‘Good News’, Iraq is not Okay
by Ramzy Baroud
In recent months we have been inundated by media reports bringing good news from Iraq, with countless testiminials to the great improvement in security enjoyed by the country in general and the Baghdad area in particular.
 
 
This progress is attributed solely to the judicious ‘surge’ of US military presence, and the astute tactics enacted by occupation forces in a place that once personified despair and violence. Indeed, reports repeatedly point to the figure indicating that violence in Iraq has dwindled by 60 percent in the last three months.

No Olympics on Stolen Land! 
by Kanahus Pellkey and Dustin Johnson
With the 2010 Winter Olympics scheduled to occur on unceded Coast Salish, St'at'imc and Squamish territory in two years, the spectacle surrounding them continues to wreak havoc on Indigenous people, poor people, and the Earth. 
 
In the spirit of  resistance to colonialism, with the 2010 Olympics as a main target, Kanahus Pellkey of the Native Youth Movement and Native youth Dustin Johnson are touring throughout the Great Lakes and East Coast in January and February 2008.

Fighting for a Place to Sleep: Homeless Challenge to Canadian Authority

The Most Important Event In Canadian History
(A.K.A. Here Come The Tent-Cities)
by David Arthur Johnston
JANUARY 9th and 10th, 2008, the Provincial Government of BC is bringing us to a BC Supreme Court judge to attempt a discontinuance of the 'Right to Sleep' Charter Challenge that is due to begin JANUARY 28th and is set for a five day trial.
 
David Arthur Johnston

Success of the Charter Challenge, the striking of the Corporation of the City of Victoria's 'anti-camping' and chattel bylaws, would mean that the people's right to facilitate survival would preclude any restriction if done conscientiously.

"I have a scream" Hillary's Banshee Moment

Clinton's Embarrassing Flop in Iowa Exposes Dem Leaders' Folly
by Dave Lindorff
The real message of the Iowa caucus yesterday was that the long-operative Clintonian/Democratic Leadership Council assumption that the independent or unaffiliated voter bloc is composed of conservative-leaning, dim-witted and easily manipulated people has got it all wrong.

In fact, in Iowa, where unaffiliated voters are free to participate in either a Democratic or Republican caucus, 41 percent of those people voted not for the conservative, tough-talking “centrist” Hillary Clinton. They voted instead for the black, nominally anti-war candidate, Barack Obama.
 
Another significant percentage of independents went for another progressive-sounding candidate, John Edwards. Clinton only got an embarrassing 17 percent of the unaffiliated vote.

Hearing Democracy Now!

Listening to Democracy Now
by Thomas Boothe and Danielle Follett
A small group of activists in the rural northeastern corner of Tennessee in the United States persuaded their local public radio station, WETS, to start broadcasting the progressive news-hour Democracy Now two years ago.
 
This pocket of Appalachia would seem to be unwelcoming territory for such an endeavour, since the economically depressed farming and mining region votes overwhelmingly Republican -- by as much as 75% in the last presidential election -- and is, according to Joseph Fitsanakis, organiser of Democracy Now Tri-Cities (DNTC), “the kind of place where 30 years ago you couldn’t really do anything politically unless you were a Klan member.”

Israel's 'Cowardly Blending'

Evidence of Israeli 'Cowardly Blending' Comes to Light      
by Jonathan Cook
It apparently never occurred to anyone in our leading human rights organisations or the Western media that the same moral and legal standards ought be applied to the behaviour of Israel and Hizbullah during the war on Lebanon 18 months ago. Belatedly, an important effort has been made to set that right.

A new report, written by a respected Israeli human rights organisation, one representing the country’s Arab minority not its Jewish majority, has unearthed evidence showing that during the fighting Israel committed war crimes not only against Lebanese civilians — as was already known — but also against its own Arab citizens. This is an aspect of the war that has been almost entirely neglected until now.
