Swine flu: 'The greatest crime against humanity in history is under way'

From YouTube:

An award winning journalist in Austria named Jane Bergermeister has filed criminal charges indicting several individuals on promoting a swine flu hoax merely to sell vaccines.

And, she adds, that the vaccines given will cause more harm than the flu they were meant to protect against.

Please show this video to anyone you know in the military.

This appears to be the actual complaint

Charges filed against Baxter and Avir

I have made contact with Jane Burgermeister and she sent me the files. I have created a scribd account:

Poet who hung out with elite but never quite won acclaim

HAROLD NORSE: WILLIAM Carlos Williams once wrote to Harold Norse, who has died aged 92, that "you are the best poet of your generation".

Often associated with the Beat writers, Norse began publishing in the early 1940s, befriending and collaborating with leading 20th-century literary figures, among them WH Auden, James Baldwin and Allen Ginsberg. The author of 12 books of poetry, Norse was nominated for the US National Book award in 1974, but never achieved the success of his more celebrated peers.

Born Harold Rosen (a surname he later rearranged into Norse), he grew up in a poor Brooklyn neighbourhood in New York. His mother, an illiterate Lithuanian immigrant, had lost touch with his father by the time her only son was born. In 1938 he earned a bachelor's degree at Brooklyn College where, the following year, he and Chester Kallman, his boyfriend, winked at Auden at a poetry reading. Kallman and Auden became lovers and Norse worked briefly as the poet's secretary. Remaining in Auden's circle for some years, by the early 1940s Norse was something of a literary Leonard Zelig, blending in and out of artistic circles.

A talented writer in his own right, he cultivated an extraordinary number of relationships, both personal and professional. In the early 1940s Norse met Ginsberg on the subway in Manhattan and became friends with Baldwin in Greenwich Village. He also spent a summer with Tennessee Williams as the playwright put the finishing touches to The Glass Menagerie, and survived drinking sessions with Dylan Thomas in 1950. He was awarded his master's degree at New York University the following year.

[ ... ]

Between 1960 and 1963 Norse lived in Paris with William Burroughs, Ginsberg and Gregory Corso in the Latin Quarter hotel known as the "Beat Hotel". Although initially wary of the Beat writers' literary credentials, Norse collaborated with Brion Gysin on the cut-up technique and was briefly an acclaimed painter of ink drawings soaked in the hotel bidet, known as Cosmographs. After travelling to Greece (where he met Leonard Cohen) and north Africa (where he struck up a friendship with Paul Bowles), Norse returned to the US, settling in California. There he became friends with the writer Charles Bukowski and began bodybuilding with the then unknown Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Norse's move to San Francisco in 1972 resulted in a productive spell. In 1974 City Lights, the publisher and bookshop founded by Lawrence Ferlinghetti, released Hotel Nirvana, Selected Poems, 1953-1973, to critical acclaim. After the publication of Carnivorous Saint: Gay Poems, 1941-1976, Norse was feted as one of America's leading gay poets. This was followed by Harold Norse: The Love Poems, 1940-1985, and his final volume, In the Hub of the Fiery Force: Collected Poems, 1934-2003. His autobiography, Memoirs of a Bastard Angel: a Fifty Year Literary and Erotic Odyssey, was published in 1989.

Although Norse received support and acclaim from writers including Anais Nin, Burroughs and Bukowski, his work did not bring him the financial rewards or literary acclaim he craved. Norse described himself as a "lone-wolf" and he refused to join the pack, at some cost. In many ways he was more "Beat" than the Beats: Jewish, illegitimate, homosexual, Norse was an outsider who quietly produced some startling and technically accomplished verse from the fringes of the US literary scene.

The issue of participation in the municipal elections

From: New banner, old ideas

It is characteristic that Bookchin has always been a proponent of the participation of anarchists in the elections of local authorities. The following confession of Dimitris Roussopoulos, publisher of the anarchist Black Rose Books, in his interview in the Greek journal Arnoumai, regarding his participation as a nominee in the elections of Montreal, Canada, is indicative:

Question: Isn't it contradictory for an anarchist to participate in elections?
Answer: That depends on the kind of the elections. I can go to the second floor of this house and bring you someone called Michael Alexandrivitch Bakunin, who writes about this issue... Let me tell you a story. When Bookchin comes he usually sleeps upstairs. It was about half past twelve when I suddenly heard him shout "Ah! Look what I've found!" He then calls me and shows me an analysis contained in a Bakunin's collection, according to which, among all levels of state organization, the municipal is closest to society and is the level where the individuals can play some role. He then asks "Do you have the collection of Maximov?" I indeed found it and a more extensive excerpt of it was there. Of course Bakunin never wrote that anarchists should participate in the elections but wanted to distinguish between the city and the state.
Therefore, Bookchin has developed this idea of local action and libertarian municipalism. As a result, I myself that have never voted in my life, I am going to participate in the elections. Bookchin caused this- damned him. "You are -he said- the most self-composed, you are well-known, you are active you should give it a try..." "Ok - I replied- I will" (5) .

Although the factor of the local special features is not necessarily the most fundamental for the issue of municipal elections, we ought to underline that the Greek social reality is completely different than that of USA or Canada. Bookchin's suggestion for the participation to the municipal elections, as an important constitutional element of the strategy for the development of a movement that is directed toward libertarian municipalism, is not of significant value if considered in the context of Greek reality, maybe of no value at all, simply because there are other facts that play a more important role. That is the case in respect to other regions. Who could possibly claim that the participation in the municipal elections is the sole way to elevate the elements of a policy that is directed towards communal autonomy, federalism and libertarian municipalism? Who could claim e.g. that the zapatist movement wrongfully abstains from participating in the municipal elections organized by the state and bases its communal organization in structures self-organized by the Zapatistas, such as the Councils of Good Government.     

It is well known that Bakunin had been a proponent of the revolutionaries involvement in the local issues even when revolution was wandering around the European countries, and he additionally made a special reference to the issue of municipal elections, as was also previously mentioned by Roussopoulos: 

Municipal Elections Are Nearer to the People. The people, owing to the economic situation in which they still find themselves, are inevitably ignorant and indifferent, and know only those things which closely affect them. They well understand their daily interests, the affairs of daily life. But over and above these there begins for them the unknown, the uncertain, and the danger of political mystification. Since the people possess a good deal of practical instinct, they rarely let themselves be deceived in municipal elections. They know more or less the affairs of their municipality, they take a great deal of interest in those matters, and they know how to choose from their midst men who are the most capable of conducting those affairs. In these matters control by the people is quite possible, for they take place under the very eyes of the electors and touch upon the most intimate interests of their daily existence. That is why municipal elections are always and everywhere the best, conform­ing in a more real manner to the feelings, interests, and will of the people. (6)

However, according to the edition of Maximov, the next excerpt of Bakunin is the following: 

But Even in Municipalities the People's Will Is Thwarted. The greater part of the affairs and laws which have a direct bearing upon the well-being and the material interests of the communes, are consummated above the heads of the people, without their noticing it, caring about it, or intervening in it. The people are compromised, committed to certain courses of action, and sometimes ruined without even being aware of it. They have neither the experience nor the necessary time to study all that, and they leave it all to their elected representatives, who naturally serve the interests of their own class, their own world, and not the world of the people, and whose greatest art consists in presenting their measures and laws in the most soothing and popular character. The system of democratic representation is a system of hypocrisy and perpetual lies. It needs the stupidity of the people as a necessary condition for its existence, and it bases its triumphs upon this state of the people's minds. (7)

Perhaps in this second excerpt of Bakunin we all identify the reality that surrounds us.

Italy adopts law to curb migrants

Italy's parliament has given final approval to a law criminalising illegal immigration and allowing citizens' patrols to help the police keep order.

The new measures have been strongly criticised by human rights groups and the Vatican.

Illegal immigration will be punishable by a hefty fine and those who knowingly house illegal migrants will face up to three years in prison.

The law also extends detention periods for illegal migrants to six months.

It was passed in the Senate (upper house) on Thursday, with 157 in favour and 124 against. The lower house passed it in May.

Citizens' patrols

The unarmed citizens' patrols are among the most controversial measures.

A right-wing uniformed group called the Italian National Guard was set up last month, likened by some to Benito Mussolini's Fascists. It vowed to start patrolling the streets.

But Interior Minister Roberto Maroni said the group, which sports beige uniforms and black military-style hats, would not be allowed to mount street patrols.
