British Parliament Member George Galloway has been deported and banned from entering Egypt, after successfully leading a humanitarian aid caravan into the Gaza Strip. Galloway’s ‘Viva Palestina’ convoy faced a number of obstacles while trying to bring over two hundred vehicles full of aid into the Gaza Strip.

They were finally able to enter the besieged coastal strip on Wednesday, but were only given forty-eight hours to distribute their aid. Viva Palestina was just the latest of a number of solidarity marches and caravans showing support for the besieged population of Gaza on the one year anniversary of Israel’s massive invasion.

Latest developments in the 2006 murder of journalist Brad Will

Evening News
program date: 
Tue, 01/05/2010

A Mexican judge has once again called for the release of human rights activist Juan Manuel Martinez Moreno. Moreno was charged with the murder of Indymedia journalist Brad Will in 2006, despite the fact that there was no evidence against him. On Friday, a Mexican judge recognized this lack of evidence, and ordered Moreno’s release within fifteen days.

Supporters of Juan Manuel Martinez Moreno say that he was framed for the murder because he is an activist who has pointed out corruption in the Mexican government.  Several off-duty Mexican police who were caught on film shooting at Brad Will have not been charged with any crime.

Short Description: 
Looking beyond the rhetoric: the arguments for (and against) Measures 66 & 67

 

On January 26, Oregonians will be asked to decide how the latest chapter in the state's long-running tax wars will turn out. Opponents of two tax increases approved by the legislature in 2009 succeeded in collecting enough signatures for a referendum on what are now Measures 66 and 67. The former would raise the state income tax rate on those earning more than $125,000 per year while the latter would increase the minimum corporate tax. Supporters of the measures say vital public services are at stake.
