Bullet #1218: Nothing to Do, Nowhere to Go, Nothing to Say
by James Jordan | February 8, 2016
It has been two months since the UN climate summit in Paris, aka COP 21. One might expect the kind of ebb and flow we often see in popular movements. Interest in climate issues, the cause of the day during the summit, might be expected to wane and move to the back burner of public discourse until another development pushes it forward again.
What's New: The Case for Releasing Leonard Peltier
| February 7, 2016
Leonard Peltier has always maintained his innocence and has emphatically maintained that his continued persecution by the U.S. government is politically motivated. Even Amnesty International, which is cautious about cases it champions, has taken up Peltier's cause, questioning the fairness of his trial and backs assertions that political considerations likely factored into his treatment by the U.S. justice system. So why would U.S. authorities single out Peltier and seek his unjust imprisonment?

What's New: My 40 Years in Prison
by Leonard Peltier | February 6, 2016
What can I say that I have not said before? I guess I can start by saying see you later to all of those who have passed in the last year. We Natives don’t like to mention their names. We believe that if we speak their names it disrupts their journey. They may loose their way and their spirits wander forever. If too many call out to them, they will try to come back. But their spirits know we are thinking about them, so all I will say is safe journey and I hope to see you soon.

Aaron Swartz was a brilliant 26-year-old software developer who most recently worked at a company called Thoughtworks, a global software developer, but before that, was well known as a developer of Reddit, the inventor of RSS, and one of the designers of Creative Commons. Well, Aaron committed suicide on 11 January 2013. At the time of his death, Aaron Swartz was under indictment for using MIT access to log into JSTOR, a database of scholarly articles, and downloading those articles with the intent to make them public. If Swartz had been convicted of these charges, he faced more than 30 years in prison.

The “sharing economy” wasn’t supposed to be this way. Aided by the tiny computers most of us carry with us all day, every day, we would be free from the burdens of ownership and making money in our spare time by renting out our unused possessions. The vison was -- or at least appeared to be -- an idealistic one. Even before they enter kindergarten, every child learns the value of sharing, and here were the beneficent forces of Silicon Valley bringing us innovative new tools to strengthen our communities, disrupt outdated ways of doing business, and maybe even reduce our carbon footprints.

|: Help Save Hydro|
Premier Kathleen Wynne and her Liberal MPPs -- who include Ottawa’s Marie-France Lalonde, Yasir Naqvi, Madeleine Meilleur, John Fraser, and Energy Minister Bob Chiarelli -- have started to privatize Hydro One.
80% of Ontarians oppose this privatization because they know it will drive our rates even higher. And the Financial Accountability Officer says it will cost Ontario hundreds of millions of dollars in lost revenue every year. Forever.
Only the wealthiest citizens benefit from hydro privatization; everybody else suffers higher hydro rates and eroded public services. The good news is that these privatizations can still be stopped, and even reversed. But we need your help. | PDF poster
