Save Old-Growth Forest From Loggers


Save Old-Growth Forest From Loggers

A majestic old-growth forest in Alaska’s Tongass National Forest is about to be decimated by a giant logging operation. This forest is home to a wide variety of rare and endangered animals and plants, all of which are threatened by loggers. Demand the U.S. government save this special forest and stop the logging operation.

And please help with these other important causes:

♪Polovtsian Dances, Borodin, Prince Igor

Prince Igor (Russian: Князь Игорь, Knyaz’ Igor’ ) is an opera in four acts with a prologue. It was composed by Alexander Borodin. The composer adapted the libretto from the East Slavic epic The Lay of Igor’s Host, which recounts the campaign of Russian prince Igor Svyatoslavich against the invading Polovtsian tribes in 1185. The opera was left unfinished upon the composer’s death in 1887 and was edited and completed by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov and Alexander Glazunov. It was first performed in St. Petersburg, Russia, in 1890.
This version is conducted by Gergiev with the Kirov ( Mariyinksky) Opera Company.

Canada to Declare War on Egypt: Mohamed Fahmy, Egyptian injustice and Canada’s spineless response

No surprise here Lou, as you know, the regime change which took place last year in Egypt was the result of a US-backed military coup against Islamist President Mohamed Mursi. US imperialism and its capitalist allies installed their stooge.
“As opposition to Mursi built up in the working class, powerful sections of the US foreign policy establishment and the Egyptian ruling class concluded that the Islamist president had to go. The Egyptian army—working in close coordination with the Pentagon, which funds the country’s military to the tune of $1.3 billion per year—ousted Mursi, placing him under house arrest and issuing arrest warrants for hundreds of MB leaders.

While the ouster of Mursi was broadly popular in Egypt, the junta that has taken its place is an army-run regime aligned with US foreign policy and the interest of the banks. While the coup organizers’ initial target is the MB, their aim is to end the ferment in the working class, slash state subsidies that keep fuel and grain prices affordable for Egypt’s impoverished population, and crush popular opposition to Washington’s Middle East wars.”
Sadly, Canada has no real leadership, Harper is Washington’s puppet. He is a traitor to his country and should be impeached!

Amnesty International Petition re: Prisoners of Conscience in Egypt

Yes this is a travesty of justice, but it’s not any better in the US, journalists covering “sensitive” stories have a habit of committing “suicide” by CIA. A recent “accident” being Michael Hastings, the reporter who was about to break the story of Bowe Bergdahl. Then there’s Pat Tillman… the list goes on and on.
