Audio from the Felton FLOW Panel on Water Privatization

On September 23, Felton FLOW (Friends of Locally Owned Water) organized a film screening of Thirst at the Rio Theater in Santa Cruz, CA. Thirst is a new documentary that examines community water conflicts on three continents. 'Thirst' demonstrates that popular opposition to the privatization of water ignites remarkable coalitions that cross partisan lines. When it comes to water, many people demand local control and fear the arrival of multinational corporations with large lobbying budgets and little local accountability.

Thirst also shows that the individual struggles of these communities raise the same profound questions: Is water a human right for all people? Or, is it a commodity to be bought, sold, and traded in a global marketplace?

After watching Thirst, a six speaker panel discussed water issues around the world with a focus on Felton, a rural community in the Santa Cruz mountains. For more information on Felton's struggle for community controlled water resources, visit Also visit

Counterpunch article full of lies about Israel

At the popular website, ,the following article relating the experiences of a husband and wife team, Kathleen and Bill Chistison who recently visited "Palestine" was printed as the lead feature article on Sept. 24, 2004. The article is re-printed below in its entirety with my frequent comments imbedded. Please note the frequent blatant untruths and the glaring ommissions which, for the naive reader, leave the impression that the Palestinians are fine, good people and the Israelis are evil and brutal.

$5000 Settlement in False Arrest of Activist Downtown

The City of Santa Cruz and Sushi Now owner Matisse Selman agreed to an out of court settlement of $5000 with activist Robert Norse who they falsely arrested on January 30, 2002.

City of Santa Cruz Police Department Sgt. Loran Baker arrested longtime activist Robert Norse for "obstructing the sidewalk" on a "citizen's arrest" from Sushi Now! owner Matisse Selman on January 30, 2002. After videotaping him for several days, Baker then handcuffed and transported Norse to the local police station - though the "crime" was a minor infraction normally handled like a traffic ticket. This was the third time within a 7 month period that Baker had custodially arrested Norse on charges that were later dropped or were never even filed.

Attorney Kate Wells, a long time Santa Cruz civil rights lawyer, along with attorneys Jim and Rhonda Fossbinder, then sued the City, Selman, and Baker in Federal Court for false arrest and violation of the First Amendment right to speak and assemble. Two years later on September 14, the Santa Cruz City Council approved an out-of-court settlement of $5000. Norse interviewed Kate Wells on Free Radio Santa Cruz. Selections from that interview are printed here and in the upcoming October issue of Street Spirit newspaper.
