Is it guilt? Is it a sense of overarching privilege that compels us to reach outside of ourselves? Is it selfish, even self-righteous and narcissistic? Or is it pure, born out of the deepest well of charity, of true compassion?

URGENT ACTION: Daily News launches Political Attack On Oscar Lopez Rivera!

URGENT ACTION: Daily News launches Political Attack On Oscar Lopez Rivera! | WELCOME TO MY WORLD OF MANY CAUSES | Scoop.it

 

On Saturday January 21st, the Daily News published an article by Mara Bovsun titled, "Justice Story: FALN bomb kills 4 at Fraunces Tavern, where George Washington said farewell to troops"[1] in which she details the history of the armed action organized by the FALN at Fraunces Tavern on January 24th, 1975.

At the end of the article, she mentions that Puerto Rican Political Prisoner Oscar Lopez Rivera, who was a member of the FALN, was denied parole last year and quoted John Connor, the son of one of the Fraunces Tavern victims, 'Finally…some justice forour father, Frank Connor, and other victims of the FALN."'

This article is a one-sided hit piece that attempts to portray Oscar as a terrorist who is getting his "just deserts." The Daily News must be held accountable for reporting the facts of Oscar's case.

For example: In a highly unorthodox and controversial move, John Connor and other family members of the Fraunces Tavern bombing were allowed to give testimony at Oscar's parole hearing to prejudice the parole board. Oscar's defense team protested their attendance and asked for them to leave; there request was denied.

Oscar was never charged with or convicted of the Fraunces Tavern action, therefore can't be held responsible for it; their testimonials against him should not have had any bearing on his parole hearing and should not have been allowed.

While incarcerated, Oscar's behavior has been exemplary and support for his parole has come from religious leaders, academics, union leaders and elected officials throughout Puerto Rico and the United States. In fact, thousands of letters, telephone calls and emails have been made and continue today calling for Oscar's release.

The ProLibertad Freedom Campaign is asking our supporters to call the Daily News' News Department and demand that an article be published on the international movement for Oscar Lopez Rivera's parole! Demand that the News Department speak with Oscar Lopez Rivera's legal representatives, his supporters and family members! Demand a stop to this yellow journalism and fairness in the news reporting!

Call the Daily News 212-210-1585 and ask for the News Department! Let them know ProLibertad is available for any interviews on Oscar at 718-601-4751 or ProLibertad@hotmail.com

Email the news department: news@nydailynews.com

Manifesto 'taster':

Manifesto 'taster': | WELCOME TO MY WORLD OF MANY CAUSES | Scoop.it

 

HEALTH:

• To make alcohol and pharmaceutical manufacturing companies and the Government responsible for the cost of medical services, rehabilitation and support of London citizens who are dependent on their alcohol and pharmaceutical products.

• To provide free sanitary products for all female London citizens.

• Introduce voluntary independent monitor groups drawn from the public to conduct unannounced inspections on all borough care homes both public and private to check on the health and welfare of their residents. These would include: Foster homes, Child care homes, Nursing and Care homes for the elderly and Young offenders institutions.

• The Department of Health has powers to sanction firms profiteering from drug sales. Millionaire drug manufacturers have raised the price of widely used prescription drugs by 1000%. Investigate sources of pharmaceutical supplies to London Hospitals/GP practices & pharmacies. Pressure must be put on to reduce the massive profits of drug manufacturers.

• Hospital Parking: Introduce a Ward Parking Token system to park free or at a largely reduced daily rate for immediate relatives or appointed partners who are visiting seriously ill loved-ones.

• Routes for easier access to holistic treatments should be explored.

Michael Lindsey

Michael Lindsey | WELCOME TO MY WORLD OF MANY CAUSES | Scoop.it

http://www.mississippi-justice.com/MichaelLindsey.html
On July 27, 2008 at 8:20am Pearl Ms. Police Lt. Brian Ellis issued a murder warrant for Michael Lindsey. This was 6 hours and 20 minutes after David Knapp (a neighbor) came to Michael’s front door, accompanied by his girlfriend Shannon Few and another neighbor’s son Steven Booth, yelling I’m gonna kick the M.F.’s ass. Within seconds of arriving at Michael’s front door David carried out this threat causing multiple life threatening injuries to Michael. When Michael was finally able to escape his attacker he went inside his home looking for his phone (which he was unable to find) to call 911, because he was in desperate need of medical attention. David was 16 years younger, 86 pounds heavier than Michael & had no injuries at this time. Michael looked out his door while searching for his phone and David was still just a few feet from his front door with his arm around Reggie Tisdale (Michael’s roommate/best friend since childhood). It appeared to Michael that David now had Reggie in a headlock attacking him. Michael picked up the only thing visible to protect his roommate and himself from this violent attacker, a kitchen knife laying on the counter. He walked outside and stabbed David one time to disable. Unfortunately David died from internal blood loss due to this single stab wound only meant to disable while he & Michael waited approx. 40 minutes for American Medical Response (AMR) to arrive.
