On May 1st, 2013, Benny Warr was waiting for the bus in his wheelchair at the intersection of Bartlett St. and Jefferson Ave., near his home. As he was waiting for the bus, a Rochester police cruiser rolled up to the intersection. The officers exited the car and according to Warr, asked him what he was doing.
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 19, 2013, Rochester Indymedia interviewed Col. (ret.) Ann Wright, a former US Army colonel and diplomat who resigned over the invasion of Iraq. She has since become an advocate for peace and an anti-war speaker and organizer. She will be going to Syracuse, NY on April 26-28th for the “Resisting Drones, Global War and Empire" convergence. (See the FaceBook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/540569232649914/?ref=22.)
In this interview, Ann talks about her decision to leave the government, blowback from families of people murdered by drones, the abolition of the war machine, and drone programs in other countries, among other topics. Her prefered sites of information on drones are Know Drones dot com, a Code Pink effort called Drones Watch dot org, and of course, Upstate Drone Action dot org.
It is problematic when the US leads the way in illegal use of weapon systems (drones). You can be assured that other countries will follow suit very quickly.

By John Konopak.CJE – What was the first US city to undergo an attack from the air?
No, not NYC, 2001. And it wasn’t Honolulu, 1941, either.
No, it occurred during what was probably the worst, bloodiest, deadliest and most destructive “race” riot in American history occurred in 1921: in the “Black” neighborhood of Tulsa, Oklahoma, called Greenwood. The Governor of Oklahoma ordered military aircraft to attack the Greenwood district of Tulsa with incendiary bombs and sniper fire on Sunday, June 1, 1921, to suppress a “Negro Rebellion.”
Alan Blueford, an 18-year-old African American student from Skyline High School, was shot and killed by Oakland Police Officer Miguel Masso on May 6, 2012. The Blueford family and JAB coalition strongly condemn the DA's report and reject all attempts to cover up their son's murder. We demand Masso be fired and prosecuted, and all racial profiling practices, including stop and frisk, be stopped immediately!
Alan's mother, Jeralynn Blueford, "This is a march in honor of my son and others that has suffered police brutality. We are for change not violence and vandalism."
This is what democracy looks like! Stop killing our dreams. Stop stealing our votes. On August 28, 2012, a rally and march was held during the Republican National Convention to raise awareness about voter suppression laws as well as to dispel the myths surrounding so-called voter fraud.
"The news of the firings came just before the holidays last December. Some of us workers ...had given decades of our lives to the Pacific Steel Casting Company in West Berkeley. We worked in awful conditions, were denied proper breaks, lacked adequate eating facilities and paid into a pension we are now being denied access to. We depended on this job to provide for our families, pay rent and put food on the table. However after years of benefiting from a lower paid undocumented worker base, the company submitted to a federal immigration audit which led to 200 of us being fired. The audits check the validity of Social Security numbers and demand the firing of any worker who is undocumented and cannot provide a social. There have been tens of thousands of these audits throughout the country devastating immigrant families and communities as part of a federal policy that seeks to cause so much pain and hardship to migrant families that they might "self deport". The policies have caused much pain in our community but the self deportation theory has proven a failure. In this particular case the workers refuse to self deport or to walk away with their heads down in defeat.
