Commentary :: Civil & Human Rights


God's messenger offers a smiling white-wash of the darker hours ahead, as if no deficiency ever existed in the plans of George W. Bush.

But when every program or venture faces economic failure as a ramification of multiplying debt, the only solution to an uneconomic system which can only multiply debt in proportion to commerce is mathematically perfected economy.

Florida's Palm Beach County Bracing for the Electoral Storm

Odile Dumas' daughter Monique, a student at Howard University in Washington D.C., was so anxious to vote that back in September she requested an absentee ballot from Palm Beach County in Florida. On Friday, just five days before the election, when her ballot still hadn¹t arrived, she called her mother Odile in a panic. Odile immediately went to the Supervisor of Elections office to get her daughter's ballot and Federal Express it to her. But the lines were too long and she had to get to work. So she returned on Saturday and took her place on line. "My black ancestors were jailed and killed for trying to vote," said Odile. "The least I can do is stand in line so that my daughter can vote." Odile's patience turned to exasperation, however, when the 8-hour wait meant that she had missed the deadline for Federal Express and the wait was all for naught.

A New IMC,, Launches with Special Elections Coverage

On the eve of what will be one of the most important elections in U.S. history, the Indymedia network announces the launch of a new and critical website for gathering the news and views of ordinary people across the country and around the world.

With its mission of publishing independent, on-the-ground reports from the people who experience the news most directly, will amplify the voices of those most impacted not only by the elections process, but also by the policies of either a Bush or Kerry administration.

The US IMC website centers around a syndicated wire of all featured articles published by participating local US-based IMCs, including Santa Cruz Indymedia. As with all Indymedia sites, the US-IMC's open publishing newswire empowers people to become the media by posting their articles, photos, videos, and audio clips directly to the website's wire. But the US-IMC's main function is to make the news that is published, culled and edited to local IMC sites relevant and accessible to a broader audience.
