  US Peace Activists Join Anti-Drone March in Pakistan(2012-10-08)
  DemocracyNow.org - Thousands of people marched in Pakistan over the weekend to protest the ongoing U.S. drone strikes. On Sunday, the Pakistani government blocked the march from entering the tribal area of South Waziristan, a frequent target of drone attacks. Addressing the march, Pakistani political leader Imran Khan said the drone strikes are fostering hatred of the United States. Imran Khan says: "These drone attacks are a violation of international law. These drone attacks are a violation of the human rights of Pakistani people. Do we all condemn them? We want to send a message to America the the more drones attacks you carry out, the more the people will grow to hate you and raise their arms against you. Our tribal people will not be scared off with drone attacks." More than 30 U.S. citizens with the group CODEPINK traveled to Pakistan to take part in the march and meet with drone strike victims. Activist Tighe Barry says: "The illegal, immoral, brutal attacks on the innocent people of Waziristan in the FATA region of Pakistan must end now. These are illegal drone strikes carried out by CIA. CIA is a civilian organization using military equipment. This is a war crime." Activist Linda Wenning: "They (drone attacks) are illegal, they're against international law. They invade the sovereignty of Pakistan, and they're not productive." In a U.S. protest held in solidarity with the anti-drone march in Pakistan, 10 people were arrested on Friday at the Hancock Field Air National Guard Base in New York. Members of the Upstate Coalition to Ground the Drones and End the Wars stood in front of the base's gate, holding signs and blocking entry. Shortly before he was arrested, protester Jack Gilroy said demonstrators hoped to hold up the piloting of the drones that takes place at the base, perhaps sparing the lives of civilians overseas.

  Violent response to Bahrain protest
  Al-Jazeera [WARNING: This video contains images that some viewers may find disturbing] Troops and tanks have locked down the Bahraini capital of Manama after riot police swinging clubs and firing tear gas smashed into demonstrators in a pre-dawn assault, killing at least four people. Hours after the attack on Manama's main Pearl Roundabout, the military announced a ban on gatherings, saying on state TV that it had "key parts" of the capital under its control. Khalid Al Khalifa, Bahrain's foreign minister, justified the crackdown as necessary because the demonstrators were "polarising the country" and pushing it to the "brink of the sectarian abyss". Speaking to reporters after meeting with his Gulf counterparts, he also said the violence was "regrettable". Two people had died in police firing on the protesters prior to Thursday's deadly police raid. An Al Jazeera correspondent, who cannot be named for security reasons, went to Salmaniya hospital, which was thrown into chaos by a stream of wounded protesters from Pearl Roundabout.

The Freedom Flotilla, a convoy of six ships carrying hundreds of activists, political leaders and journalists from around the world, was trying to deliver about 10,000 tonnes of basic aid including food, medicines, and construction material, in an attempt to break the Israeli blockade on Gaza.

  The Post-9/11 Afghan Heroin Explosion
  The War on Drugs. The War on Terror. Narco-Terrorism. Prior to 9/11, the poppy production levels in Afghanistan were at a low and many of the Taliban were against heroin and the opium poppies. However, since U.S. forces entered after 9/11, the poppy crop has skyrocketed. The UN has reported that the six-year boom has lead to the Afghan crop being responsible for 92% of the world's heroin trade. With Homeland Security and the War on Terror, it's amazing that the drug still gets into the USA, one of it's strongest marketplaces.
