SB 1070... in Tejas?

June 12, Austin, TX
Those in favor of bringing an immigration law like Arizona's SB 1070 held a rally at the state capitol to show their support. Those that feel that this type of law is a racist slippery slope showed up in opposition. The cops had everyone out numbered, and were armed to the teeth, because a few of the geezers that support SB 1070 were also armed.

Notice that their signs read "We're not racist- You're illegal" while they are yelling slogans like "Wetbacks go home!" There were alot of white supremacists, but by the end of it, we had 'em out numbered... and they couldn't just ignore us and listen to the pap coming from the stage... all in all, a good day.

Seize BP

How do we force a multi-national corporation to pay the ACTUAL cost of an ONGOING spill of over 200,000 gallons a day? The oil has made landfall in the critical coastal wetlands of Louisiana. This tragedy affects us all, regardless of where we live because this habitat is host to migratory species, many of which are classified as Critical or Endangered. Lives will be lost. Species may be lost forever. How does one QUANTIFY that loss in DOLLARS??? Preposterous! It can't be done!

So what IS the solution? How DO we proceed?

10th annual March to Abolish the Death Penalty

Download this clip!

10/24/2009 Austin TX
Hundreds gather at the TX State Capitol to protest the Death Penalty. After so many people have been exhonerated it is unfathomable that this archaic practice still exists within our "justice" system. On Tuesday Oct. 27, 2009 Reginald Blanton will be murdered by the state unless Governor Rick Perry grants him a Stay of Execution. Call Governer Perry and tell him to stop this unconscienable practice today! Before another innocent person is murdered in your name.
Governor Rick Perry (512) 463-2000

Victor Agosto and Travis Bishop: WAR RESISTERS!

download this clip!

Today Victor Agosto will start meeting with Fort Hood's Trial Defense Services about his status as an Afghanastan War Resister. Victor has decided that the Afghan and Iraqi wars do not serve the American people, and rather undermine the security of our country. He is refusing all orders that facilitate deployment to Afghanistan. He has decided to stay in the Army while he resists in hopes of encouraging others who may feel the same way from within the ranks, and it has already worked! Travis Bishop is also resisting! Well good on you, gentlemen! We support our troops that RESIST WAR!
