Labor Video Labor Video John Lennon Birthday SpeakoutPublished Note on Oct 11, 2016: On John Lennon’s birthday October 9, 2016, a rally sponsored by LaborNet.org was held outside the San Francisco mansion of billionaire Mark Zuckerberg the owner of Facebook to protest the censorship and privatization of the internet. Participants discussed Zuckerberg’s agreement with the apartheid Israeli government and Netanyahu to censor the internet with critical content of the Israeli government. Facebook is also censoring live streaming from Standing Rock Native American pipeline protesters and Kurdish activists. * See the list of links documenting the citations of censorship or spying provided in the description box for this video.

Amidst the general call for the creation of a Commons Free Speech Public Space on the Internet, there were those who stepped forth to voice more specific charges of censorship at the John Lennon’s Birthday Speak Out Against Facebook Censorship on Sunday, Oct 9, 2016 outside a Zuckerberg mansion in San Francisco, CA. ILM is the “International Labor Media” channel.

Steve Zeltzer at one of the Zuckerberg Bay Area mansions at the John Lennon’s Birthday Speakout Against Facebook Censorship on Oct 9, 2016 in San Francisco, California.

Steve Zeltzer of Labor Video says (4:28 – 4:58) that Zuckerberg’s “power over over a billion people who are now on Facebook is being used to control political debate and dissent. We believe that this is wrong. In fact, he met with Prime Minister Netanyahu and signed an agreement saying that he would work with the Israeli government to censor critical comments against the Apartheid regime of Israel, of the Zionist regime. If Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg want to be political appendages of the  Israeli government, that  obviously their choice. But they will have to pay politically for that, and everyone needs to know what they are doing.”

“The other thing is the issue of spying because people who use Facebook put their personal names, their personal information on Facebook and he has access to it, which means the US government has access to it. So people have to be aware of that.” Zeltzer describes the global reach of Zuckerberg using Brazil as an example. He purchased the domain name “internet.com”. Tech barons want the internet to be privately owned explains Steve Zeltzer. “We need municipal WiFi free public internet.

Zeltzer refers to John Lennon’s Birthday in saying, “Imagine a day without censorship! Imagine a world without censorship!” (10:05 – 10:45)  “What the supporters of Zionism and the Apartheid regime in Israel want to do is they want to pass laws in the United States saying that you cannot boycott Israel because that’s ‘anti-Semitism’… Now this is a canard that is used against people to basically accuse people who are critical of the policies of Israel of being anti-Semitic. And this is a very reactionary dangerous kind of position. So, in New York Gov. Cuomo passed such a resolution. In California Gov. Brown signed such a resolution. We’re saying this is outrageous! People have the right to boycott.”

A woman speaks (12:50 – 13:08), “If we were to look at the history of Boycotting, Sanctions, Divestment movement within the U.S., it was successfully used to bring down the Apartheid South African regime. So at that time was that equated with being anti-White or Anti-Dutch?” She also cites Facebook for not allowing a livestream of the arrests at the Native American resistance at Standing Rock to protect their water rights against the proposed Dakota Access Oil Pipeline across their land. This woman speaker also cites the experience of having Green Party Jill Stein posts banned from being posted on Facebook. (This happened to me while trying to post to Facebook groups in which I am a member! VRS) The Woman’s Free Gaza Flotilla to end the blockade of Gaza was intercepted illegally in international waters, but that has been blocked out of the American corporate-government press, not just on Facebook.

The next speaker, the man with the “From Vietnam to Palestine Facebook/Zuckerberg Censoring History” sign, (21:18 -32:22) was concerned with how private property ownership of public forums like Facebook is part of the general elimination of the public common space for public expression. He focused on the recent role of Facebook in Turkey during an attempted coup where suppression of freedom of speech was openly done in the name of restoring order with emergency decrees. Journalists were beaten by police and dragged by the hair to jail when TV stations were shut down without any news coverage by the compliant complicit western media. Facebook “respects” the Turkish Anti-Terrorism Law, “which in Turkey it means that if you show the army killing civilians, that’s a terrorist act… Facebook goes along with this and shuts down the pages. As we have seen, in the last 10 days when Palestinian journalists try to show their opinion immediately Facebook has stepped in and shut it down.”

facebook-censor-1024x535
Steve Zeltzer comes back into the soundtrack around 39:33 to sum up the censorship  situation. Zuckerberg’s support for attacks on public education and on teachers’ unions reveals his ruling class politics. The people want genuine democracy, not the private ownership and public censorship and spying that we are getting on Facebook!

Top Ten Reasons: Sandy Hook was an Elaborate Hoax

BERKELEY CALLING BLOG is re-blogging the 7-25-16 Professor James Tracy of MemoryHoleBlog post by Vivian Lee, which happens as the Democratic Party National Convention prepares to give full stage credibility to a story full of holes. Evaluate for yourself the Top Ten Reasons: Sandy Hook Was an Elaborate Hoax. Massive money laundering, cynical media manipulation, and Anti-Constitutional citizen control and disarmament in general are the motives for this “capstone event” crime against the public. This review stands up well to any attempt to cover-up the lies. Read the post and also check out the linked audio by James Tracy at his radio program Checkin’ It Out!

Dr. Tracy, a tenured professor of media studies, was subjected to a massive nationwide smear campaign for raising the questions that every journalist, crime detective, and concerned citizen must and should be asking about every event that happens, not just this one! James Tracy was fired and there is an ongoing law suit about the matter for which donations are being gratefully accepted. Defending the First Amendment Freedom of Speech rights of others is the way to insure them for yourself. It came out in Freedom of Information Act hearings conducted by Wolfgang Halbig of the Sandy Hook Justice Project via the testimony of a City of Newtown First Selectman Llodra that the sign “Everyone Must Check In” was put there by the Department of Homeland Security! The home site for Wolfgang Halbig’s work on uncovering the Sandy Hook crimes is the Sandy Hook Justice Report.

Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth posted a review that said: “9/11 In The ACADEMIC COMMUNITY, a winner at the University of Toronto Film Festival, is a unique film that documents academia’s treatment of critical perspectives on 9/11. It explores the taboo that has been effective in shielding the American government’s narrative of the events of 9/11 from scholarly examination. Through a powerful reflection on intellectual courage and the purpose of academia, the film aims at changing intellectual discourse on 9/11 and the War on Terror… As well as probing the repercussions several scholars have endured due to their individual investigations into 9/11, this documentary provides an analysis of impairments in professional inquiry, ranging from the failure to critically reflect on terms that function as “thought-stoppers” (such as “conspiracy theory”) to the structural approach that restricts inquiry to the broad implications of 9/11 while shutting out enquiry into the events of the day itself.” http://www.ae911truth.org/en/news-section/57-news-releases-by-others/795-new-film-takes-on-911-in-the-academic-community.html

Ukraine: Bloody Destabilization and Privatization Coup of 2014 Orchestrated by the NWO Corporate Captured States

Freedom” for the Ukraine! What does that mean? What is really happening? Here is a collection of news videos that suggest that there has been a bloody destabilization and privatization coup that was orchestrated by the NWO “Corporate Captured States” (CCS) using Neo-Nazis, snipers, media disinfo, a sexy chick viral video, and waves of money from NGO’s (Non-Government Organizations).

Closer to home at Stanford University’s Hoover Institute in California, Larry Diamond has produced a new book and a new film on “democracy”. He has something to do with channeling US tax dollars through the National Endowment for Democracy (NED). But who gets that money? And why is it OK for the USA (as represented by corporate representatives) to intervene in other people’s countries with NGO funneled money. Is it destabilization and privatization work?

 Watch The Truth About The Ukraine Crisis” (12:16) Prison Planet’s Paul Joseph Watson reports that Larry Diamond of Stanford University and of the US “National Endowment for Democracy” (NED) funded a propaganda video called “From A Whisper To A Roar”. Note well that Paul Joseph Watson is an Islamophobe associated with fake “truther” Alex Jones of Prison Planet and Disinfo Wars. However, I found no other report on this film and the clip of the Ukrainian Girl from the propaganda movie mentioned. So I’m using it for that reason. I am not endorsing these guys. In this case, their facts stand up under scrutiny with other substantiation provided as well.

Book: The Spirit of Democracy by Larry Diamond of Stanford University.

Book: The Spirit of Democracy by Larry Diamond of Stanford University.

The section of the movie on the Ukraine celebrates the right wing NED funded parties in the Ukraine and their leader, Viktor Andriyovych Yushchenko, who lost the latest election to Viktor Yanukovych in2010. Recently, Yanukovych was overthrown in Kiev under violent methods of intervention by operatives associated with the US funded NGO’s (non-governmental organizations), some of whom are Neo Nazi. This film praises right wing pro-privatization political operative Viktor Yushcheko. A 2:04 minute segment titled “I Am A Ukrainian” was promoted to go viral on YouTube. 

An attractive blue eyed lady supports the “Right Sector” Nazis and “freedom” advocates on the barricades. How romantic, sweet, and fake! NED and other NGO’s funded the wave of “color” revolutions of which Ukraine’s brand was “orange”. Now the first step of the new Un-Elected government has been to offer to sell the state owned energy company to private corporations “in transparent auctions”. They will also open up negotiations with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to secure an indebted Ukraine within the Euro NATO sphere of domination. The attempt to remove Russia from the Crimea is a dangerous attempt to further the encirclement of Russia by NATO. 

Ukraine: Secretive Neo-Nazi Military Organization Involved in Euromaidan Snyper Shootings” – By F. William Engdahl in 21st Century Wire & Global Research, March 03, 2014 – “A secretive neo-nazi military organization reported linked to NATO played a decisive role in targeted sniper attacks and violence that led to the collapse of the elected government. But the West is not finished with destroying Ukraine. Now comes the IMF (International Monetary Fund – NWO Corporate Empire Bank) with severe conditionalities as prerequisite to any Western financial help…According to veteran US intelligence sources, the snipers came from an ultra-right-wing military organization known as Ukrainian National Assembly – Ukrainian People’s Self-Defense (UNA-UNSO). 

Victoria Nuland’s Admits Washington Has Spent $5 Billion to “Subvert Ukraine”. Who is Victoria Nuland and why does this Dec 13, 2013 “U.S.-Ukraine Foundation” Conference in DC have oil logos so prominantly displayed? Victoria Nuland is the wife of Robert Kagan, founder of Project for A New American Century, and considered a star-leader of the younger generation of “Neo-Cons” now embraced and employed in the Democratic administration of President Barack Obama. After serving as Hillary Clinton’s spokesperson, she is now the U.S. Undersecretary of State for Europe and Eurasia.” How odd to hear a US official talk about her visit to the EuroMaidan protests as people being attacked for singing hymns when the reality is well documented in videos that Neo Nazis nationalists and “militants trained in the Baltics” used a molotov cocktail to create a napalm substance to throw at police officers. A phone call between her and Geoffrey Pyatt was intercepted in which she says “F the EU”. I would interpret that to mean that she understands that they want to participate in the Privatization Plunder of the Ukraine. But that they were not then willing to engage in nuclear brinkmanship with Russia or to support the US attempt to use its Neo Nazi banksters to try to remove the Russian fleet from the Crimea. Nuland said F the EU because they tried to make a deal with the elected government without US participation after it balked at joining the European Union and NATO (spoken by her in code as Ukraine’s “European future”) which would bring that outdated “defensive” organization to the door of Russia. NATO was originally set up to defend Western Europe from a perceived Soviet threat. It was deliberately transformed into an aggressive military tool to bomb far-flung places, such as Afghanistan, Libya, and Yugoslavia.

 

“INSANE Footage Of Ukraine Riots at Think Outside the Box Channel – Ultra “Right Sector” Nazi-style nationalists financed by US NATO use tactics learned in training camps in the Balkan states. The pay is said to be $25 per day. State Department Under-Secretary Victoria Nuland and the wife of Robert Kagan, founder of Project for A New American Century, said that the US has spent $5 billion so far to subvert the Ukraine. Plenty of new gear and weaponry has come into the violent conflict. Where is that kind of money and gear coming from? A home-made napalm is used on police who seem to be under orders to not shoot back, at least in this scene. You can see the fires break out on their uniforms.

Sharing a post by Haitian Blogger Chantal Laurent, “He’d better move faster on the privatization track, else his handlers will have to start mobilizing “civil society” to push him out, at which point he will have lost the afterglow of a Molotov cocktails democracy and become just another failed leader who needs to go.” Ukraine’s New Government mulling privatization of Energy Sector 3-3-14 – Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk has said, “I’ll tell you about the idea of privatization of the energy sector at transparent auctions…”

Ukraine Protests: Israeli Ex-Officer ‘Leads Militant Group’, Claims Iran

Why would Zionist Jews work with Ukrainian Fascists? Is there any history of anything like that? Unfortunately, this author makes that case.

The Zionist-Nazi Collaboration by William James Martin / July 8th, 2012 Dissident Voice Excerpt: The understanding of Herzl, as well as the Zionists, about the inevitability of anti-Semitism was possibly self-fulfilling, for rather than opposing anti-Semitism in the first half of the 20th century, the Zionists found common cause with Hitler, Eichmann, and the Nazis and used anti-Semitism and Nazism as a means of achieving their end which was the establishment of a Jewish state. The two reactionary movements shared the view that German Jews were living in that country as a ‘foreign race’ and that the racial divide was essential to maintain. The Zionists’ use of Nazism involved, among other things, the blocking of avenues of escape to other countries of Europe’s Jews and diverting them to Palestine, even as the death trains began to roll in Europe. The rise of Nazism and Hitler to power was never, or almost never, opposed by the Zionists prior to the establishment of Israel. 

Ukraine: Israeli Special Forces Unit under Neo-Nazi Command Involved in Maidan Riots 

Leaked Telephone Conversation: Ukraine Sniper Killings of “Opposition Protesters” Ordered by “Opposition Leaders”, Blamed on Yanukovych. The leaders of EuroMaidan ordered the shooting of their own supporters and police to inflame the situation. Based on the release of a controversial leaked telephone conversation, we are now in a position to confirm that the Kiev Maidan Independence Square February 20 sniper shootings directed against innocent civilians were ordered by opposition leaders integrated by Neo-Nazi elements. Acknowledged in a leaked telephone conversation between EU foreign affairs chief Catherine Ashton and the Estonian foreign minister Urmas Paet, the Maidan opposition rather than president Yanukovych was behind the sniper killings on February 20. These shootings were directed against both opposition protesters and police. Urmas Paet: “There is now stronger and stronger understanding that behind the snipers, it was not Yanukovich, but it was somebody from the new coalition,”Catherine Ashton: “I think we do want to investigate. I mean, I didn’t pick that up, that’s interesting. Gosh,”  According to RT:  The telephone call “took place after Estonia’s Foreign Minister Urmas Paet visited Kiev on February 25 at the peak of clashes between the pro-EU protesters and security forces in the Ukrainian capital. Paet also recalled his conversation with a doctor who treated those shot by snipers in Kiev. She said that both protesters and police were shot at by the same people.”Urmas Paet “And second, what was quite disturbing, this same Olga [Bogomolets] told as well that all the evidence shows that the people who were killed by snipers from both sides, among policemen and then people from the streets, that they were the same snipers killing people from both sides,” the Estonian FM stressed. Catherine Ashton; “Well, yeah…that’s, that’s terrible.” 

Breaking: Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Paet and Catherine Ashton discuss Ukraine over the phone by Michael Bergman – Officers of Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) loyal to the ousted President Viktor Yanukovich have hacked phones of Estonian Minister of Foreign Affairs Urmas Paet and High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton and leaked their conversation to the web. The officials discuss their impressions of what’s happening in the country after the revolution. The gist of it is that Ukrainian people have no trust in any of the leaders of Maidan. However the most striking thing of all is the fact which concerns the use of force during the revolution, particularly the snipers who killed both protesters and officers of the riot police. Mr. Paet reveals astonishing information which confirms the rumours that the snipers were employed by the leaders of Maidan. 

 

Foreign Intervention in the Ukraine Crisis – “In the latest startling revelation, Pando.com has published documents implicating the Omidyar Network in the funding of the current Ukrainian protest movement. The Omidyar Network is the NGO of billionaire Ebay co-founder Pierre Omidyar, who recently set up “First Look” as an outlet for (among others) Glenn Greenwald, Jeremy Scahill and Laura Poitras to selectively publish some of the Snowden document archive, 99% of which continues to be withheld from the public… As supposedly “progressive” outlets once again scramble to throw their support behind the billionaire oligarchs and NGOs that have helped to destabilize the country, and as neocons unite with neoliberals in their agenda to carve up Ukraine for western interests, it remains to be seen what genuine alternative outlets will stand up against this blatant interference and stand up for the principle that it is up to the Ukrainian people, and no one else, to decide what happens in their country.”

As current Chair of the Social Justice Committee of the BFUU, I am pleased to make this public announcement that on September 1, 2013 The Social Justice Committee of The Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists unanimously passed a resolution to remain resolute in support of Bradley Manning after he was unjustly sentenced to 35 years in prison for documenting war crimes as the law requires a soldier to do, and after publicly declaring that “she” is a woman and that she requests that we refer to “her” as Chelsea Manning.

It is clearly in the spirit and the meaning and the calling as described in “Our Unitarian Universalist Principles” that we declare this “Standing on the Side of Love” Resolution. It reads as such:

 “We stand by Chelsea Manning as a war-crimes whistle-blower who should be freed. Instead of prosecuting Manning, war criminals should be put on trial under the Nuremberg Principles. We also stand with Manning in her right to choose her gender.”

CNN reports on Manning statement made after his sentencing

The injustice of the saga of Chelsea Manning continues to confront all people of conscience and good will within the context of the larger system of oligarchy and militarism parading as “democracy” and being given constant cover by a criminally complicit corporate media. It is treasonous to engage in the cover up of crimes, in violations of the Constitution, and in the deliberate distortion of reality to suit the most cruel and cynical of motives to destroy and dominate people everywhere. It’s thuggery!

The movement in support of Bradley Manning understands this larger context and it is probably sophisticated enough to process the new challenges that Manning’s gender choice present. It is precisely because the movement for Social Justice in this country is a principled movement that it will remain stalwart and steadfast in support of Private Chelsea Manning.

On Oct 23, 2013 the Private Bradley Manning Support Network published the letter of support from famous author and social justice activist Alice Walker. Major General Jeffrey S. Buchanan has the power to reduce Chelsea Manning’s 35-year prison sentence to time served, as commander of the Military District of Washington. We need an outpouring of public support for Manning’s freedom to compel Maj. Gen. Buchanan to do the right thing.Hundreds have already written letters to Maj. Gen. Buchanan, explaining why Manning deserves clemency. Alice Walker is the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Color Purple. Read the Alice Walker Statement in which she praises Manning’s humanism here!

I am pleased to announce that a new Chelsea version of the song has been recorded and posted as a free mp3 download at SoundCloud.com/BroadsideBalladeer

The San Diego Coalition To Free Manning issued a call for people to hit the streets and demonstrate their reaction to the draconian sentence of 35 years in prison given to army whistle-blower Chelsea Manning. Along with the Obama regime's unprecedented war on whistleblowers and journalists, the revelations of illegal Unconstitutional spying on Americans in violation of the 4th Amendment right of the people to be secure in their houses and effects, people had much to say. Supporters of truth, justice & transparency rallied to speak out and raise awareness in San Diego.
