On April 27, 2013, Horace Campbell presented a workshop titled "Ending the Fabrication of the War on Terror: Lessons from Africa" at the Resisting
Drones, Global War and Empire convergence in Syracuse, NY.
Part 1 is Horace's opening remarks.
On April 19th, 2013, I interviewed Sarah A.K. Ahmed who grew up in Iraq and lived through the Gulf War in the early 1990's as well as the invasion and occupation of Iraq in 2003. While in Iraq, she worked on a number of small projects as well as with a volunteer group, Youth and Educational Development Council. She got a full scholarship to study at the University of Rochester but had to return to Iraq because of family issues. She returned recently to the United States to speak at the United Nation's Commission on the Status of Women and to participate in the upcoming convergence “Resisting Drones, Global War and Empire” happening in Syracuse, NY from April 26th to 28th. Currently, when she is in the US, she calls New York her home. (See the FaceBook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/540569232649914/?ref=22.)
In this interview, Sarah and I spoke about her role in the upcoming Syracuse convergence where she will be speaking on a panel called “The Human Face of War,” her perspective on jobs and the economy in Iraq, the lack of civic awareness about what the US military is doing abroad, and paper air planes, among other topics.
People from China are coming to work in factories and for oil companies and this is sad because Iraqi people cannot work. Why are the companies bringing these people to work from outside the country? It is because they will work for lower wages than Iraqi people would accept. The percent of unemployment is sky high.
One of the objectives of the false flag Boston Marathon bombing terror attack, was to create fear, confusion, anger, and hatred, in the subconscious minds of the masses, the millions of people who absorb and accept the "New Normal", whenever the people in power implement a tactic or agenda (Problem).
After the media saturates the minds of the masses, the government has a greater role in their lives to rule over them and control them.
The media conditioned the masses to cheer the police and soldiers after the suspect was caught, and the whole city of Boston came out of their houses, cheering the soldiers and police, waving their flags, and singing the national anthem (Reaction).
RAPE IS A CRIME. RAPISTS ARE CRIMINALS. It’s obvious to most of America but not to you or to your on air talent. VICTIMS are the ones deserving of your concern not the criminals.
Now, IF you had used this to point out the tragedy of the entire situation in your comments I could agree but you chose to spent air time, time that reaches an entire country and more, and your pity on two young men who showed NO remorse until they were judged guilty. Their defense team smeared the reputation of the victim and they stayed silent.
So, to you, CNN, I guess I have to remind you that this is America and we have OUR laws here. It doesn’t matter if a woman is NAKED walking down a dark alley at 2 in the morning- RAPE IS A CRIME!
MEN are not animals and any MAN that used the “she was asking for it” defense is saying that MEN are not human beings able to control themselves. If that is the case them MEN are to be kept separated and at home unless accompanied with FEMALE relatives as it is in some Middle Eastern countries.
Oh, by the way CNN think back, teenagers do dumb things. Under Age drinking is a dumb thing. It’s a dumb thing that has been going on since way before I was born and I am 61 years old. Anyone remember keggers or field parties? Those were dumb things but RAPE isn’t a dumb thing. It’s a CRIME.
This is the message you should have pushed on air, if you were going to do anything other than just report the facts of the case.
By Diana May-Waldman- Yeah, and maybe I’m a little biased about Citizen Journalist Exchange. We don’t sugar coat. We put it out there.
With that being said, the guilty verdict in the Steubenville, Ohio rape case involving to high school footballs players has just about sent me over the edge. You know, those moments when you think about jumping over a table and just pile driving someone into the ground with hopes of knocking just a little sense into them?
One newscaster called this story, “Infamous.”
Two over emotional female twits from CNN were talking about how this had ruined the future career of the boys convicted, followed by one of their over zealous male buddies who chimed in that he thought having these boys register as sex offenders for the rest of their life was harsh.
Let me say, that I wasn’t without compassion for the two rapists. It didn’t last long, but in my brief moments of compassion I had to ask myself, why these boys would think what they did was okay. Why it was acceptable. I would like to think by the age of 16 and 17 years old, we know better. In fact, I’m pretty sure we do.
My mother always said, “There is right and there is wrong. And if you stop and think, you know one from the other and if you don’t, you better be ready to pay the consequences.”
By Sherry Pasquarello,CJE – There are more than a few differences between the two major political parties, some good, some not so much. There’s a popular saying about not arguing with stupid people because they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience. That may be true in most cases but not in the case of some republicans and certainly not with FOX “news” yakkers.
WWH/CJE Citizen Journalist, Dr. John Konopak, unpacks the conditions and hjistorical influences which have left the "Average American" virtually helpless before the power of "public relations."
it's late, or very early in the morning. i can't sleep. i'm heading to tampa soon as an activist and an independent journalist. for the first time i'm armed with a press pass, and a camera, and my computers. we're to cover the conventions, for this, the great election cycle of 2012. the end of the mayan calendar, the beginning of a whole new world, the zombie apocalypse upon us. the democrats and the republicans have spent a total of 50 million dollars a piece on security for their respective conventions, and the air is brittle with the anticipation of mayhem in the streets. it's gonna be a shit show, folks, with homeland security, militarized police, trapwire, and animosity aplenty, toward anyone who dares to say no to the political machine and the police state that is slowly and silently gnawing with their rotten teeth on the tongue of our free speech.

Comcast swallowed up NBC. Microsoft scooped up Skype. AT&T tried to take over T-Mobile. What's next? This panel will explore the new face of media consolidation, what it means for the future of the Internet and free speech, and whether there's anything that can — or should — be done to change course before we’re staring at GoogizonFoxBookfinity&T. This panel of scholars, policy experts, and public interest advocates will look at how we got here, measure the impact of the mega-mergers happening now or coming soon, explain what policymakers should be doing to confront the next wave of media concentration, and discuss what alternatives might be possible. The panel will include former FCC Commissioner Michael Copps, Craig Aaron of the media advocacy group Free Press and Andrea Quijada of New Mexico's Media Literacy Project, and will be moderated by tech journalist Sam Gustin.

SXSW Interactive 2012 presents: Occupying Media: 24 Hour Protest People The Occupy Wall Street Movement began in September, 2011 with the goal of holding a 24/7 public protest at the nerve center of American finance. Uniquely among American mass protest movements, the "occupation" used a variety of specially configured audio, video and social media resources to built an independent media capacity to extend the reach of its message and bypass mainstream media filters. These systems emphasized the role of the citizen observer over traditional media engagement strategies, and by creating "news" and validating events through shared experience, they helped the occupation movement achieve and sustain critical mass. This panel features members from various occupation sites who have worked on national media efforts. Produced by ZGraphix.org Filmed & Edited by Jeff Zavala
