    • Raymond Lotta on: Obama's Assault on Rights, Resisting with High Standards, and the Betrayals That Can Not Be Tolerated


      from Revolution Books / Added

      Raymond Lotta speaks on how the Obama administration has been seeking to bolt unprecedentedly repressive measures into place—and the need for outcry and resistance. A critical focus is the battle against the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). But this cannot be fought in a way that aids the government's efforts to single out and target particular political forces. Lotta will address the politically and morally unconscionable and unacceptable decision by journalist Chris Hedges and his legal team to make a dangerous mischaracterization of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA and its Chairman, Bob Avakian, a pivot point in a lawsuit against the NDAA.

However, the eldest is allowed to become engaged to an unprincipled young man, primarily for the financial advantages it will bring the mother, Bernarda. Jealousy and envy ensues among the other daughters."

            October 20th, 2011 | For more on this event, please visit: http://bit.ly/nXJ07d Berkley Center for Religion, Peace and World Affairs | Georgetown University What happens when a government places restrictions on religious freedom? What does a society lose if religion is outlawed or persecuted? The Religious Freedom Project at the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs hosted sociologists Brian Grim and Roger Finke as they addressed these and other questions raised in their new book, The Price of Freedom Denied. Examining the worldwide state of religious freedom, Grim and Finke conclude that circumscribing or delimiting religious expression in the name of freedom serves neither the interests of the government, nor the polity to whom they are responsible for protection. Rather than protecting citizens from religion in the public sphere, the authors find that religious repression or restriction is instead linked to persecution, radicalization, and potentially violence. The event included a response from Jose Casanova and was moderated by Eric Patterson. http://berkleycenter.georgetown.edu

              Grand Jury Resistance Panel 2013 Law and Disorder Conference Portland, Oregon. Mick Kelly- Committee to Stop FBI Repression Lauren Regan- Civil Liberties Defense Center Chris & Tabatha- Committee Against Political Repression Examples of political repression are found throughout World history. The ability of any authoritarian empire or modern imperialist state has always employed strategies of subterfuge, surveillance, entrapment and informants. Such efforts have been augmented in the 20th century by technological advancements and the development of the Prison Industrial Complex to detain and torture political activists. Key examples of political repression in 21st century United States are house raids and grand juries. Two notable cases have been FBI round ups in Chicago/Minneapolis and Oregon/Washington. Some panelists will describe their experiences as targets and victims of these recent investigations.

                Bomben oder Lichterketten: Wie weit darf politischer Aktionismus gehen? Dürfen Gesetze übertreten werden um der „gerechten Sache“ zum Durchbruch zu verhelfen? Wie weit dürfen Aktionismus und Widerstand gehen? Vor 50 Jahren sorgten Sprengstoffanschläge in Südtirol für heiße politische Diskussionen. Der Unmut über die Unterdrückung der deutschsprachigen Südtiroler in Italien war Anlass für die Anschläge. Noch heute ist die „Feuernacht“ zum Herz-Jesu-Fest im Juni 1961 ein emotionales Datum in Tirol. War es Freiheitskampf oder Terrorismus? Wie weit darf ziviler Widerstand gehen? Immer noch eine aktuelle Frage: In Spanien demonstrieren Jugendliche trotz Verbotes gegen das politische Establishment, beim G8 Gipfel werden Massenproteste erwartet. Und in Österreich stellt sich die Frage Tierschützern wie Studenten der Aktion „Uni brennt“. Dürfen Gesetze übertreten werden um der „gerechten Sache“ zum Durchbruch zu verhelfen? Und wenn ja, wie weit dürfen Aktionismus und Widerstand gehen? Dazu diskutieren bei Renata Schmidtkunz: Peter Jankowitsch - Außenminister a.D. Eva Klotz - Landtagsabgeordnete Bozen Martin Balluch - Tierschutz-Aktivist Bernd-Christian Funk - Verfassungsrechtler Gini Müller - Aktivistin, volXtheaterkarawane Gerhard Mumelter - Südtiroler Journalist
