In the past, journalist Chris Hedges has worked for NPR, The New York Times and the Christian Science Monitor. In his latest endeavor, however, he is teaming up with an unlikely pair: a couple of attorneys that will help him take on the president.
US President Barack Obama is the target of a suit filed by Pulitzer Prize-winner Hedges, and the reasoning seems more than obvious to him. The decision to take the commander-in-chief to court comes as a response to President Obama’s December 31 signing of the National Defense Authorization Act, or NDAA, a legislation that allows the US military to detain American citizens indefinitely at off-site torture prisons like Guantanamo Bay.
I was wondering when this was going to be legally challenged
On January 17, 1961, in this farewell address, President Dwight Eisenhower warned against the establishment of a “military-industrial complex.”
Houston Free Thinkers relaunched occupy the fed yesterday! We started with 6am street action at the Federal Reserve and then at 2pm we marched down to JP Morgan Chase building and Bank of America and passed out DVDs and shared information about the Federal Reserve with many passing by. We ended the action by marching back to the Federal Reserve in time for some rush hour street action! Check out the Houston Free Thinker website for more information about our street action and other events coming up!

Activists alter 85 BofA ATMs in SF to become “Automated Truth Machines”
Rainforest Action Network claims responsibility for the art-prank intervention.
RAN activists took to the streets of San Francisco last night and turned every Bank of America ATM in the city into an Automated Truth Machine. The activists used special non-adhesive stickers designed to look exactly like BoA’s ATM interface. But instead of checking and savings accounts, these new menus offered a list of everything BoA customers’ money is being used for, including investment in coal-fired power plants, foreclosure on Americans’ homes, bankrolling of climate change, and paying for fat executive bonuses.
*This is the kind of activism I really enjoy.
On November 19th, 2011 after the conclusion of the 4th annual FED Rally, The Houston Free Thinkers launched OccupyTheFED - Houston. A few days later on November 22nd, 2011 we participated in National Action directed at the illegality of the FED. 2 arrests, and a few days later, cities around the country who chose to occupy the Federal Reserve were shut down.
Now we are back. :)
We need help from all those who stand against the FED to come out and do street action with us. WE are working with other groups, and the full details will be coming shortly.
For now we need those who can work shifts from:
6 a.m. - 10 p.m.
10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
2 p.m. - 6 p.m.
We would really like to have our presence known in the morning!!! Please invite your friends!!!
