Syrian Actress Speaks Out Against Bashar Al Assad

Published by:

The Washington Post writes on Monday that women are being impacted heavily in the massacres taking place in Syria, and in return they are making an even bigger impact on the dialogue of peaceful protest. A crowd of men and women gathered Monday in mass protest against the massacre that took place the day before. Many women did not wear hijabs, a facial covering traditionally worn by women in that area.

Here’s a video of them protesting this week chanting anti-government slogans:

Here’s actress-turned activist Fadwa Sulayman, also seen without a hijab, talking about a hunger strike in which she is participating in order to draw attention to the violent repression by state agents in Syria:

In the video, the Fadwa calls for more protests outside of the embassies and hunger strikes to support the freedom of speech by the people against state agents.

5 Charged with Resisting Arrest in UC Berkeley Occupy Protest

Published by:

It appears a person’s only crime can be “resisting kidnapping.” From the Associated Press:

Prosecutors have filed charges against five people in connection with an Occupy protest at the University of California, Berkeley in November in which police used batons on protesters.

The four students and a professor were charged last week in Alameda County with misdemeanor resisting arrest.

They were among 39 people who were arrested during the Nov. 9 protest over the university’s decision to remove Occupy tents.

Video footage showed law enforcement officials jabbing protesters with batons during the demonstration.

The four students are 37-year-old Jasper Bernes, 22-year-old Ricardo Gomez, 25-year-old Ramon Quintero and 21-year-old Zakary Habash. The professor is 54-year-old Celeste Langan.

Langan says it seems odd that charges were filed given what she saw as the use of excessive force by authorities.

Rick Santorum’s Family Votes Ron Paul

Published by:

In a story by the Daily Caller, the nephew of Rick Santorum explains in his own words why he is voting for Ron Paul:

If you want another big-government politician who supports the status quo to run our country, you should vote for my uncle, Rick Santorum. America is based on a strong belief in individual liberty. My uncle’s interventionist policies, both domestic and foreign, stem from his irrational fear of freedom not working.

It is not the government’s job to dictate to individuals how they must live. The Constitution was designed to protect individual liberty. My Uncle Rick cannot fathom a society in which people cooperate and work with each other freely. When Republicans were spending so much money under President Bush, my uncle was right there along with them as a senator. The reason we have so much debt is not only because of Democrats, but also because of big-spending Republicans like my Uncle Rick.

It is because of this inability of status quo politicians to recognize the importance of our individual liberties that I have been drawn to Ron Paul. Unlike my uncle, he does not believe that the American people are incapable of forming decisions. He believes that an individual is more powerful than any group (a notion our founding fathers also believed in).

Another important reason I support Ron Paul is his position on foreign policy. He is the only candidate willing to bring our troops home, not only from the Middle East, but from around the world.

Ron Paul seems to be the only candidate trying to win the election for a reason other than simply winning the election.

This year, I’ll vote for an honest change in our government. I’ll vote for real hope. I’ll vote for a real leader. This year, I will vote for Ron Paul.

Marketplace Wins Over State Agents in India

Published by:

Bloomberg.com reports that protests by cotton growers in India have resulted in state agents withdrawing their threats of violence and cages on people who trade cotton outside of state agent “territory.”

In a predictable move of central planning, the marketplace of peaceful negotiations wins over threats of violence over peaceful traders.

13-Year Old Correctly Analyzes Her Own Slavery

Published by:

Good.is reports in Rochester, New York, a 13-year-old girl wrote a comparative essay based on The Narrative Life of Frederick Douglas for a contest in her 8th grade class. In it, she reflected on the words of Douglas’ master after discovering the master’s wife had been teaching Douglas to read: “there will be no keeping him,” said Douglas’ master. “It will forever unfit him to be a slave. He would at once become unmanageable, and of no value to his master.”

This little girl has some big insight when she drew the connection that her public school seems to be failing students by design, with only 19% of her classmates are proficient in language arts, and only 13% are so in mathematics. The student complained that the teachers simply hand out pamphlets and packets and expect the students to learn, but that approach clearly isn’t working.

The young girl wrote that her teachers are in a “position of power to dictate what I can, cannot, and will learn, only desiring that I may get bored because of the inconsistency and the mismanagement of the classroom.”

She concludes that her position is analogous to that of Douglass, “just different people, different era.”

According to the Fredrick Douglass Foundation of New York, “the schools’ teachers and administrators were so offended by Williams’ essay that they began a campaign of harassment—kicking her out of class and trying to suspend her—that ultimately forced her parents to withdraw her from the school.”

The Frederick Douglass Foundation has given her an award for her controversial essay, but the parents of the bright young student are still forced to fund the continued operations of the school which is failing her former classmates and attempted to punish this girl for speaking truth to power.

Youth Self-Immolates

Published by:

Al Jazeera reported this week of a Tibetan youth who has burned himself to death as part of the protest against the occupation of businesses and monestaries by agents of the Chinese government.

The self-immolating youth, named Dorjee, was 18 years old and died from the incident.

When approached by Reuters, local police denied any knowledge of the incident.

In the past year at least 25 people have set their own bodies ablaze. Though this campaign began in 2008 with the self-immolating members of the religious community, it has grown to include average Tibetans beyond the borders of what is traditionally known as Tibet. Contrary to what most would expect, the most recent deaths were all regular people–not monks or clergy.

Free Tibet is a group based in Britain which cited an eyewitness saying that “Dorjee set himself on fire near a bridge and then walked in flames to a government office building where he collapsed.”

International Campaign for Tibet spoke with Tibetan monks at the Kirti monastery in India’s Dharamsala, the seat of the exiled Tibetan government. They reported that Dorjee shouted slogans against the policies of Tibetan repression by agents of the Chinese government as he set himself ablaze.

Dorjee’s death came two days after two Tibetans killed themselves by setting themselves on fire neighboring provinces.

Activists say that agents of the Chinese government violently stamp out religious freedom and culture in Tibet, which has been under the violence-backed control of Chinese state agents since 1950.
