  1. Mag ik even de aandacht verstigen op dit artikel, en de daarin genoemde lijst,
    met websites:

    Thin Green Line: 20 Groups Standing Between You and Doom

    Graag wil ik daar persoonlijk nog aan toevoegen, de EFF: Electronic Frontier Foundation, die zich op een iets ander vlak begeeft maar die van eminent belang is.

  2. Als ik dan toch mag -- leuke filmpjes van het recente CCC-Congres: zie hier.

    En totaal Off-Topic, deze leuke korte inspirerende filmpjes van de MoMA, Modern Art & You

  3. The Black Panthers.
    "By portraying the BPP as a major threat, Nixon and the FBI gave local authorities permission and incentives to help infiltrate, surveil, lie to, raid, frame, injure, murder and incarcerate dozens of BPP members and affiliates. In this climate, BPP and affiliates often faced manufactured or excessive criminal charges. Some were convicted due to false, inconclusive or non-existent evidence. Some were tortured into confessing to crimes they did not commit. Witnesses were frequently coerced into lying on the stand or not called at all. Prosecutors concealed evidence and relied on the testimony of paid informants. Judges were blatant about their racial bias.

    The majority of BPP and BLA prisoners have appealed their convictions, a slow process that doesn’t tend to allow for challenging evidence presented in an original trial. Their appeals focus on introducing new evidence and proving a lack of due process. Because most of these cases involve the death of a police officer, BPP and BLA prisoners up for parole are frequently stymied by pressure from victims’ families and police unions. Many have been held in solitary confinement, some for decades. "
