And Remember, Honey, Don't Forget the PNAC

Just what, exactly, is PNAC? Some kind of soft drink? A new type of snack? Unfortunately, PNAC affects our well-being much more adversely than could any junk food. To see why, and also for details on other oddball groups with strange agendas of which we should be aware, read on.

Las mujeres iraquíes en las cárceles de la ocupación: objetos e instrumentos de violaciones

"De todas las historias narradas anteriormente, y de muchas otras, se desprende obviamente que las mujeres iraquíes están siendo usadas como objetos e instrumentos de violaciones. Se utilizan contra los hombres. Utilizar el valor del honor en su contexto árabe e islámico para quebrarlo significa que a través de estos abusos se pretende quebrar la estructura psicológica y cultural de la sociedad iraquí. Los abusos se están utilizando para romper la imagen que los propios iraquíes tienen de sí mismos, la imagen que tienen las mujeres en la sociedad y la que tienen de sí mismas" .

UCSC Students Step Toward Peace

dop.jpgOver twenty Santa Cruz activists are walking from San Jose to San Francisco from May 29 to June 1 to dramatize the need for a U.S. Department of Peace (DOP). Comprised of 16 UC Santa Cruz students, five other city residents, and Cody the Peace Dog, the group set out from Larry Marcelli Park on El Camino Real on Saturday morning. They intend to continue on El Camino until reaching the office of Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) at 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, where they will deliver a petition bearing over 1,000 signatures that indicate support for the creation of the DOP.

The concept of the walk was conceived by first-year student Yoel Kirschner. Kirschner was inspired by Indian activist and author Satish Kumar, a former Jain monk who, at the instigation of Vinoba Bhave, Mahatma Gandhi’s chief disciple, walked all over the world for two years in the 1960s to plea for the elimination of nuclear weapons. Kirschner co-organized the walk with fourth-year student Will Parrish.
