SIGN PETITION HERE..  http://www.codepink.org/saudi_arabia_youth_dp_action

In a rare statement, the Saudi authorities said it had sentenced the activists to death based on a fair trial. 

Human-rights activists claim that some of the sentenced men were tortured and forced into making false confessions. This later led to them being convicted to death in a secretive counter-terrorism court.

The group included a teenager who was arrested at the airport before boarding a flight to visit a university in Michigan, and a youth who is half-deaf and nearly blind, activists said.

Shias in the Sunni-majority kingdom have long complained of discrimination and harassment by fanatical Sunni authorities. Image result for code pink protest saudi execution 14 activists

The Black Gulag in USA: State owned Slavery is STILL LEGAL in Prisons

Part II: Campaign to Redistribute the Pain 2018

by Bennu Hannibal Ra-Sun, formerly known as Melvin Ray, Free Alabama Movement        As I write this article, I am not sure what day the Civil War began or what day it ended. The facts that I do know about the Civil War are not worth repeating here, as that story already occupies plenty of space in American text.

On Dec. 6, 1865, Black bodies were nationalized – and our prison movement was born  The official launch date to announce our Campaign to Redistribute the Pain 2018 is Dec. 6, 2017.

My muse, instead, is about the particular vestige of slavery that the Civil War bequeathed to us on Dec. 6, 1865, that now forms the basis of our struggle to end mass incarceration and prison slavery in 2017.On Dec. 6, 1865, the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was ratified. This is the date that the struggle to end slavery repositioned itself, by virtue of the 13th Amendment, to the prison systems of America.

As we all now know or should know, the 13th Amendment did not abolish slavery; it nationalized it. We must keep in mind that the great deception and myth that the 13th Amendment abolished slavery was aided by the fact that in 1865, very few Black people in this country were allowed to see a copy of the Constitution. Textbooks in Black schools post-Civil War either didn’t have the Constitution in them to begin with, or it was removed before the books were passed to Black schools.

Italy: squats and houses raided and evicted, anarchist comrades arrested…

by Squat!net, shared with thanks!        This Thursday 3rd of August, 2017, in the morning, the cops have broken the doors of several rented and squatted houses in Florence, Rome and Lecce, to arrest eight anarchist comrades from Florence.

La Repubblica (Italian mainstream newspaper) says it’s the result of an investigation made by the DIGOS (Division of General Investigations and Special Operations) and the antiterrorist Italian police, regarding two events. 

First, an explosive device was put in front of a fascist bookshop linked to Casapound during last New Year’s Eve, and the police bomb-disposal expert lost a hand and an eye.

Second, a Molotov cocktail was thrown against a Carabinieri barracks in Rovezzano (Florence) on 21st of April, 2017.

The cops say they have identified people via bugging telephones, tailings and samplings of biological material (DNA). Continue reading Italy: squats and houses raided and evicted, anarchist comrades arrested…
