    Video Recorded 19th /20th March 2010 in Bangkok, Thailand by Richard Edkins. Music '3 is not the magic number' - Diùra 2010 "Thailand has been gripped by a paralysing political crisis since Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra was ousted from office in a military coup in September 2006. When Democrat Party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva was chosen as prime minister in December 2008, some Thais hoped the protests had finally come to an end. But the political schism is far from over. In March 2010 the pro-Thaksin red-shirts launched new protests aimed at bringing the government down. The impression given of the red-shirts in pro-government media is of a Thaksin-fixated rabble, prone to violence. But red-shirt leaders say their movement is about much more than one man and his money; they say the movement is about more profound social change. They say that every vote should count, and that Thailand should break out of a pattern of military intervention supporting an elite bureaucratic system. Timeline: 14 Mar 2010: Red-shirts converge on Bangkok, hold first big rally, occupy government district 16 Mar 2010: Protesters splash their own blood at Government House 20 March: Red-shirts Auto Rally, demonstration around city 30 Mar: A round of talks with the government ends in deadlock 3 Apr: Red-shirts occupy Bangkok shopping district 7 Apr: PM Abhisit orders state of emergency 10 Apr: Troops try to clear protesters; 25 people are killed and hundreds injured 22 Apr: Grenade blasts kill one and injure 85 near protest hub; each side blames the other 13-17 May: 36 killed in Bangkok clashes" Above News Source: BBC News http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/7584005.stm http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/8686275.stm Video by Richard Edkins.

          Elenita and Elmer Ordonez were among the first to return to the Philippines after the fall of martial law in 1986 which had driven them into exile in Canada. During their exile, they formed part of the progressive Filipino community here in Montreal and kept up their support for the people's movement back home, working to build ties of solidarity between Quebec, Canada and the Philippines. We remember Elenita for her passion and pride in the Filipino language and culture. In the Philippines, she had been among the movement of academics promoting Filipino as language of instruction in universities and colleges. We have kept in touch over the years, and much enjoyed our visits with Elenita and Elmer and their family in Imus. In 2012, the Philippines has lost a patriot and an artist and we join her family and friends in mourning the loss of Elenita.

            from David Grant Added 592 0 1

            What if representative democracy really reflected the fullness and greatness of Who We Are? What if LEGISLATORs: • Did not need to spend half their time fundraising for campaigns? • Included the quietly thoughtful as well as the rhetorically dominant? • Included those whose demeanor and physical attributes would not likely win elections? • Were proportionally representative of the citizens they serve?

              from Peaceful Uprising Added 1,486 2 1

              Tim DeChristopher was sentenced to 2 years in prison on July 26, 2011 at the Salt Lake City federal courthouse. He was taken immediately into custody, being denied the typical 3 weeks afforded to put his affairs in order and say goodbye to his friends and family. Read More: http://www.peacefuluprising.org/breaking-tim-dechristopher-sentenced-to-2-years-in-prison-20110726 Federal prosecutors asked for Tim to receive an extra harsh prison sentence in an effort to intimidate the movement that stands with him. They hoped that by condemning him to years behind bars, they would “make an example out of him” and deter all of us from taking meaningful action. Read More: http://www.peacefuluprising.org/why-the-prosecution-wants-a-harsh-sentence-for-tim-to-stop-you-from-taking-action-20110719 In court, Tim said “You can put me in prison, but it will not deter my future of civil disobedience and it won’t deter others who are willing to fight to defend a livable future.” Immediately after the bang of the gavel, Ashely Anderson and Ashley Sanders were hauled out of the courtroom for loudly rallying people inside saying, “this court has proven itself incapable of justice. So the people will take it back – it is now our court!” foreshadowing the civil disobedience to come outside. More: http://www.peacefuluprising.org/26-go-to-jail-for-justice-outside-slc-courthouse-20110726 As Henia Belalia left the Courthouse, she made an official statement declaring: --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Consider this your call to action. Consider this the spark that will ignite this movement. Our hearts are broken today, because we see a charismatic, bright, concerned man who cares for the future of the next generation, be incarcerated in federal prison and treated like a criminal. If there was ever a day, if there was ever a moment in history for us to stand for climate justice, this is that moment. And we will no stop, we will not be intimidated, and we will not be deterred in our plight for climate justice. We demand today and tomorrow a healthy and just world for our children and for our children’s children. And we will not stop until the real criminals–the fossil fuel industry that is raping and pillaging our planet–be held accountable. I ask as a personal favor that we do not let this sacrifice, the sacrifice that Tim DeChristopher’s willing to make, the fact that he has never given up on his convictions, and the fact that he has never backed down–that we do not let that sacrifice go unnoticed, that we do not let that sacrifice go without a response. I ask every one of you, what is your commitment? This is your call to action, because this is our future. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Peaceful Uprising activists did a sit-in to blockade the 2 front entrances of the Federal Courthouse, to tell the world “its ours” and emphasize that if Tim was going to jail, they were too, giving meaning to the slogan “we are all Bidder 70.” Taking their lead, members of the community began to join the blockade to show their love and outrage. 26 people were arrested.

                Dragons♞. There is no why So why try to explain For we know We are forces of nature Once unleashed our majesty cannot fall We shall devour all We have been physically restrained for far too long Yet our spirits remain unquenchably strong Doubt if you must For in fear you trust Allowing your uniqueness to rust We’ll not take lessons from thee As you've chosen not to be free While we will embark on a spree Of peaceful conquest, sharing, love and humbly enjoying this world’s beauty We've been tame, patient and confined However, it is now us, who ourselves our paths define And we shall never again bow For we are dragons.

                    from The Acid House Added

                    Show opener for a documentary on the 25th anniversary of the EDSA People Power Revolution. Main objective of the documentary is to relay the ideals of the original revolution to the younger generation, whom most likely weren't even born at the time of the event. Instead of doing our usual style for a show open, the studio brainstormed and Pauline had this wonderful idea to execute it as part OBB, part advocacy, wherein we shot ourselves handing out EDSA 25 flyers to kids and students. The scene with the moving frames was also shot at the EDSA Shrine.
