Gaza is under siege and we MUST NOT be silent.
Message from an ISM activist in Gaza -
Dear All. I am calling on all your support for the besieged people of the Gaza Strip.
Here in Gaza, more than 10 people have been killed so far in the Israeli operation named “Pillar of Defence” within the last 7 hours, including countless children such as 7-year-old child Ranan
Arafat and an 11 month old baby. We’ve seen charred bodies of dead and injured children pouring in to Al Shifa hospital of Gaza City and the other depleted hospitals around the Gaza Strip. 50 airstrikes all over the Gaza Strip so far. Deafening explosions shook us all as bombs landed close to us in the streets near the Universities. Huge explosions are landing all around us in Gaza City now as I write, some entire families have been injured. We can also hear the shelling of Israeli Gunships. Announcement of possible Israeli land invasion very soon.
More than 330 children were killed in the last bloody operation like this in operation Cast Lead, killing over 1400 in total the vast majority civilians. We are reporting from hospitals, streets and bombed areas. How many, terrified in there homes will have their lives shortened by tomorrow, or after the days of airstrikes, tank shellings and Gunship missiles Israel has announced. YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE. MOVE. ACT NOW TO STOP ANOTHER GAZA BLOODBATH. INACTION AROUND THE WORLD HAS LEAD US TO THIS POINT. ACT NOW.

Zach D. Roberts is a photo/video journalist who’s work has been seen in the Observer, The Guardian Online, TheNation.com, The Minnesota Independent and many more.
For the past 5 years he’s been working as a researcher/producer for Greg Palast he produced several DVD’s and news pieces for BBC Newsnight. Zach edited Palast and RFK Jr’s Steal Back Your Vote -which had nearly 100,000 downloads and print copies distributed throughout the country.
Zach has been detained in New Orleans by Exxon Mobil security, threatened with arrest over 3 dozen times and was finally arrested during the #D17 OWS Protests.
In 2010 he met Sarah Palin while working on his soon to be released first feature length documentary ‘The Rogue Candidate: Sarah Palin’s Real Alaska.’ While in Alaska he broke several stories on muckraking site TheMudflats.net.
Currently he works regularly as a video producer for Jamie Kilstein and Allison Kilkenny’s CitizenRadio, writes for SuicideGirls.com and is the NY Editor of TheMudflats.net.
Palast turned his skills to journalism after two decades as a top investigator of corporate fraud. Palast directed the U.S. government’s largest racketeering case in history–winning a $4.3 billion jury award. He also conducted the investigation of fraud charges in the Exxon Valdez grounding.
Following the Deepwater Horizon explosion, Palast set off on a five-continent undercover investigation of BP and the oil industry for British television’s top current affairs program, Dispatches.
Palast is best known in his native USA as the journalist who, for the Observer (UK), broke the story of how Jeb Bush purged thousands of Black Florida citizens from voter rolls before the 2000 election, thereby handing the White House to his brother George. His reports on the theft of the 2000 and 2004 US elections, the spike of the FBI investigations of the bin Ladens before September 11, the secret State Department documents planning the seizure of Iraq’s oil fields have won him a record six Project Censored awards for reporting the news American media doesn’t want you to hear. “The top investigative journalist in the United States is persona non grata in his own country’s media.” [Asia Times.] He returned to America to report for Harper’s Magazine.
Palast’s Sam Spade style television and print exposés about financial vultures, election manipulations, War on Terror and globalization, are seen on BBC’s Newsnight and Amy Goodman’s Democracy Now!
Palast, who has led investigations for governments on three continents, has an academic side: the author of Democracy and Regulation, a seminal treatise on energy corporations and government control was commissioned by the United Nations based on his lectures at Cambridge University and the University of São Paulo.
Beginning in the 1970s, having earned his degree in finance at the University of Chicago studying under Milton Friedman and free-trade luminaries, Palast went on to challenge their vision of a New Global Order, working for the United Steelworkers of America, the Enron workers’ coalition in Latin America and consumer and environmental groups worldwide.
In 1998 Palast went undercover for Britain’s Observer, worked his way inside the prime minister’s inner circle and busted open Tony Blair’s biggest scandal, “Lobbygate,” chosen by Palast’s press colleagues in the UK as “Story of the Year.” As the Chicago Tribune said, Palast became a “fanatic about documents–especially those marked “secret and confidential” from the locked file cabinets of the FBI, the World Bank, the US State Department and other closed-door operations of government and industry–which regularly find their way into his hands. The inside information he obtained on Rev. Pat Robertson won him a nomination as Britain’s top business journalist.
Palast is Patron of the Trinity College Philosophical Society, an honor previously held by Jonathan Swift and Oscar Wilde. His writings have won him the Financial Times David Thomas Prize–and inspired the Eminem video, Mosh. “An American hero,” said Martin Luther King III. In the BBC documentary, Bush Family Fortunes, Palast exposed George Bush Jr.’s dodging the Vietnam War draft. Greg Palast, says Noam Chomsky, “Upsets all the right people.”
Palast won the George Orwell Courage in Journalism Award for his BBC documentary, Bush Family Fortunes.
Tonight’s Show, Saturday, September 29th:
Agenda 21 is a non-binding, voluntarily implemented action plan of the United Nations with regards to sustainable development.

William Jasper (1st half) from the John Birch Society and Rosa Koire from Democrats Against Agenda 21 (2nd half) will weigh in with John B. Wells on why Agenda 21 is bad news for the world, from both the right and left.
BRING BACK THE U.S. CIVILIAN CONSERVATION CORPS
By Jay D Alexander (Contact)
To be delivered to: The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama
We the undersigned Citizens of the United States strongly urge you our US Representatives to co-sponsor HR 494, the 21st Century Civilian Conservation Corps Act by Ms Marcy Kaptur (OH-9) that will re-establish the United States Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) as a means of providing gainful employment to unemployed and underemployed citizens of the United States through the performance of useful public work, and for other purposes.
We all urge our elected Federal Officials to make HR 494 that has been called for and by, and of the PEOPLE into LAW!
We urge you also to contact your two US Senate members to create a bill that reflects HR-494. We also urge the POTUS to shepherd this act through Congress as FDR did in TEN days in 1933.
Urge your member of Congress by calling their office in Washington, DC through the Capitol operator at (202) 224-3121or email, fax, or write a letter to your Member of Congress.
“As your constituent, ( If your a Vet then say so), I want (name of your Representative) to co-sponsor HR 494 titled the 21st Century Civilian Conservation Corps Act that will re-establish the CCC. The CCC Act will put our human capitol to work and enable our young single adults and veterans to train for real Green Jobs creation that will both again save our environment and themselves as the CCC did in the 20th Century but for generations to come. For more information you can visit – (spell out) WE CAN TAKE IT dot ORG. Thank you.”

It is up to the American People to have the POLITICAL WILL from the grassroots up to the grass tops to get this Congress to DO THE RIGHT THING! Then in the 1930′s millions of American families benefited from the CCC in the Depression, and now American Families need help again! See the story from living CCC treasures interviews @ http://www.wecantakeit.org/id39.html
A little background History of the CCC:
The 20th Century Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) was proposed by Franklin D. Roosevelt on March 21, 1933 and signed into LAW by him on March 31, 1933. It was his first of many “Alphabet Soup” New Deal programs that saved our hide!
During the 1930s under the Franklin Roosevelt administration, one of many three-letter programs, collectively referred to as the National Recovery Act, was the Civilian Conservation Corps.
The CCC recruited young men for work on conservation projects in national parks and elsewhere. The lived on site in camps similar to those of the military.
This was a very worthwhile project not only for the good of the country but also for the lasting benefit it provided for the men involved, who would have otherwise have been unemployed during our worst depression.
America and the world really needs this program! Many young men and women here lead lives of quiet desperation. No program exists today that will provide them with the needed supervision and guidance to be accountable for their actions and become responsible citizens and stewards of their lands and waters. We now also have to have our future generations repair our mess or perhaps perish.
So for nine years from 1933 to 1942, the Civilian Conservation Corps was the biggest and most successful federal work program in history, and the government’s most lasting environmental effort as well. The Civilian Conservation Corps demonstrated that there was absolutely no conflict between the preservation of the environment and the creation of jobs!
The 20th century CCC provided work, remedial and vocational training for unemployed and unskilled single young men and war veterans through conserving and developing the country’s natural resources!
The new 21st century CCC would include women in their ranks and be run by the US Government/public sector and would be a shovel-ready program and provide actual green job training and job experience for generations.
See www.wecantakeit.org for more information on re-establishment of a 21st Century Civilian Conservation Corps.
Wecantakeit,Inc wants to go further with FDR’s first initiative the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) and combine it with his last initiative the UN – United Nations. UN Peacekeepers would have a practical and peaceful mission to help nations to pull themselves up from poverty and want to create world peace in the process.
The new 21st Century CCC would have young citizens and veterans labor on our vast public lands and waterways. Those who enroll in the CCC, the enrollees would perform constructive work, receive a living wage, and earn the GI Bill for their National Service.
“More important, however, than the material gains from their labors will be the moral and spiritual value of such work.” ~ FDR’s March 21, 1933 message to Congress.
WE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE advocate for
the re-establishment of the U.S.Civilian Conservation Corps(CCC) to enable our unemployed and underemployed citizens to be engaged in a practical and peaceful community and national service.
The purpose of this program is for the general benefit our community and nation. The CCC would aid to transform our country to become a resilient, sustainable and ecologically balanced culture in order for this society to survive, thrive and prosper as much as we did in the 20th Century. Those who enroll in the CCC would receive job training in meaningful job skills and would be first responders in disaster relief.
