History of GITMO ..Our Military prison in Cuba
Mood:  incredulous
Now Playing: No Rules Here At Guantanamo Prison

This is an excellent article that explains a little of the origin of GITMO and some of the "unjust ways" that the Military circumvent US law and Human Rights.

Please read the full article at the link provided below!

There is also a short related film link at very bottom of this post



(quote)The commissions are also founded on the same principles that the law should not be applied to detainees captured in the "global war on terror." By crafting a new legal system at Guantanamo Bay (outside the United States, Department of Justice and Defense lawyers thought), the administration hoped to steer clear of certain rights as provided in the Constitution, such as the right against self-incrimination and right to confrontation of witnesses, which would be required in any U.S. federal court. But the military commission created by the administration went even further, creating a legal system that by all appearances seemed fixed on obtaining only guilty verdicts.

While Administration members may have sincerely believed that al Qaeda and Taliban did not deserve the protections of the Geneva Conventions, one of the convenient benefits of such inapplicability of the laws of war that the now Attorney General Alberto Gonzales noted in a memo to the President was that without the applications of the laws of war, Government officials including the President could not be prosecuted under the recently passed federal war crimes act for abusing detainees. Similarly another government memo concluded that even if interrogation of an al Qaeda operative reached the level of torture, it could not be prosecuted as a war crime in the International Criminal Court because the President found the Geneva Conventions did not apply.

The effect of these executive memos and policies had an effect on the military commissions in that a number of the defendants have alleged being severely mistreated in Afghanistan and later in Guantanamo. Omar Khadr alleges that he was held in contorted stress positions, left to urinate and defecate on himself; military police poured pine oil solvent on him and used him as a human mop to clean the floor; and he was repeatedly threatened with rape and rendition to countries where there would likely be torture; and subjected to extremely cold temperatures. (end quote)

Also watch this YouTube film on the use of Torture Practices, Fascism and Fear ...in this short film it will point out how similar the USA is in acting like the FASCIST Nazis .For this film vividly points out the exact same type of Fear that Hitler used on his fellow countrymen.  I liked how the correlation is pointed out and it is a wake up call to a very good point to be conscious about ....Z3 Readers watch this film

My favorite philosopher Howard Zinn is in it!

Dear Friend,

Each year, coffee companies make billions of dollars. Starbucks alone earned almost $5.8 billion in net revenues during the first three quarters of 2006.

Yet, for every cup of coffee Starbucks sells, poor farmers in coffee-growing countries like Ethiopia earn only about $.03. Even worse, while Ethiopian farmers grow some of the finest name-brand coffees in the world - think Harar, Yirgacheffe, and Sidamo - they don't see the premium profits those names command among consumers.

Tell Starbucks to give Ethiopia control over its coffee names.

With as many as 15 million Ethiopians dependent on coffee, Ethiopia has decided to get its farmers more of what they deserve. The country's government has asked Starbucks to sign a licensing agreement that will allow Ethiopia to control the names of its coffees. That way, Ethiopia can help determine an export price that makes sure farmers see a larger share of the profits enabling them to feed their children, send them to school and get them better healthcare.

Oxfam and a coalition of allies are asking Starbucks to sign this agreement. According to one coalition member, control of the name brands could increase Ethiopia's coffee export income by more than 25 percent - or $88 million annually. This money could go a lot way to help lift millions of Ethiopians out of poverty.

So please, help us convince Starbucks to sign this agreement with Ethiopia. Poor farmers deserve a fair share of the profits.

Inspiring New - Anti War Movie from 1971
Mood:  bright
Now Playing: Camden 28 - The Catholic Left

Well it was a back to back film day, since I was at one yesterday.

I am the kinda guy who basically watches no tv ...so two days of just watching a film(s) is for me remarkable. Now I must say ..these two shows were a far cry from just watching "tv"

.......they were mind opening!

This show tonight was inspiring as so it should be.

I mean after all we are talking Human Rights here!

A film that documents the making of the film I seen tonight was found by Ben Waiting here on the Internet, at the following website .

It is a behind the scenes of the film I seen tonight.


This is a movie about an Amazing determined group of people, who broke in to the Military Recruiting Office in Camden NJ and started shredding 100's of draft information. (nice!)

They were a  group that a "jury of their peers" later, deemed "NOT GUILTY"

These 28 had stood up and and took action. ....And in doing so were set up and betrayed by a fellow friend turned informant. They wanted PEACE. They broke the law. And they got caught. They wanted to send a strong powerful message. The were peaceful people....many but not all .....

were Catholics! ....They were referred to as the Catholic Left.

It takes mighty brave individuals to stand up to the crowd ...and look them in the eye and state loud and clear to them that -->

WAR is wrong....... We refuse and will take action!

 For these 28 were dedicated like many joe anybodys feel today

(30yrs later)That you are against all war...against this president...aginst the use of Torture...and the violations of the Constitution .....to look the crowd that stares back- either live "right there" or from their  FoX news at the dinner tables at home. To look them in they eye and say....... "Our Government is lieing"...."our Government is wrong"..... "Our government is killing people".....and "our own Police here in the homeland are hurting people in the name of violence and power and protecting the war machine". Protesters getting beat in the streets because they stood up for Peace, is common these days it happens all the time with out any scruples, or ethics considered. Instead chains and violence and gasses are used to suppress dissent and shut up the few and the brave.

People that stand and take some kind of action and will say to the eye of the crowd  "Damn you Government!" and "Stop this War" "Stop Torturing People"  Brave smart people that know it is the right thing to say ...it has to be said ...it has to be done.......for it is admirable, honest , and just. It is non violent and the motive is .........PEACE


....as I seen these brave priests and citizens do in the Camden 28 ...is admiral and I am Proud of them. Howard Zinn was at the trial and in the movie. What a smart man. More from him on this very topic --> http://theconversation.org/break-in.html

It was amazing when you thing about all this ...and how it payed out

The 28 ...they were all smart ...!

....they were all smarter than the White House, The Pentagon, The FBI

...then again they were just really loving humans that cared about life and their fellow humans.......that doesn't make you smart....heck to care about humans and not want to kill .....To feel like that does not really make you smart..... --> it was just that the ones who the 28 were up-against were ....."SO FRICKIN STUPID"

They were up against good-ol plain and pure "Stupidity"

Stupid wars.......STUPID WARMONGERS.........STUPID STUPID stupid!

So thats their foes ....the "STUPID War mongers"  The 28 won or pure logic and fighting stupidity. Power to the People.

Z3 Readers ......Watch the film ......

And harness the energy......

.....the world needs peace now!

Thats what I have Ben Waiting for!

All Star Refugee Band Is 100% LOVE
Mood:  lyrical
Now Playing: Inspiring Refugee All Star Band, Is Portland Oregon Bound


I just seen this movie tonight at the


Human Rights Film Festival


~ I am inspired by these loving people ~

Their whole attitude is bringing music to their fellow brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers, and children ....It was played for themselves as a way of taking their minds of the tragedy and the terrible memories they lived with daily.

The music was a vehicle that helped everybody escape for a little while........now my fellow Zebra3  Readers ....hear me.........

These outstanding Humanity Respecting - Loving People helped to do what almost hardly anyone was doing for the community. For they to as well have seen the hardship and horrors of WAR

They lived through and the feeling of "no security" "no home" and as one of the fellows from the movie said - moving along like a "rolling stone" ......A fact that that their whole worlds and lives and their family's were destroyed for the sake of WAR .....wow........it was heart-wrenching to feel the impact of war on their lives and then heart warming to see these All Stars bring - peace hope and love

Yep .....so its pretty cool how these band of merry men ...did just that ...brought merriment and hope....just for a few minutes as they played........these refugee's played with their hearts for their loved ones.....not very many people were doing anything much for these people ....and from what I can say is it was real "admiral" of them to pick up the load and reach out to heal their family and friends ...pretty powerful

Ahhhhh yes ..... the REFUGEE ALL STARS were saving lives. Cause when you are in a refugee camp in Guinea for 10 years ...Just what is your life? And if there is no way to maybe forget how bad it is........10 years? ....wow? Nice to have some music nice to feel some love.


Here is their LIVE tour date link http://rosebudus.com/tourdates/refugeeallstars.html



See you at the show

USARNORTH - US Military Control
Mood:  don't ask
Now Playing: What you may not want to know what the US Military is doing

Be sure to read the article from the second link

near the bottom of this post.

Military Control in the USA and all of North America....No!

 Not in the third world countries...... this one is here my own country


The New USA Military Controlled Territory






U.S. Army North .....up and running

Staff report

October 17, 2006

U.S. Army North, the Army’s newest service component command reached full operational capability Monday, which means that it is fully manned, equipped and ready to assume its mission.

As part of Army transformation, USARNORTH was formed to become the dedicated Army service component command to Northern Command, the unified command responsible for defending the homeland and coordinating defense support of civil authorities.

Located at Fort Sam Houston, Texas, USARNORTH achieved initial operating capability in September 2005, and is responsible for specific missions, including:

• Execute homeland defense and defense support of civil authorities missions.

• Provide training and readiness oversight of certified weapons of mass destruction—civil support teams.

• Conduct the Army-to-Army portion of the theater cooperation mission with Canada and Mexico.

• Coordinate the activities of defense coordinating officers and their elements assigned in each Federal Emergency Management Agency region.

• Organize up to two task forces that, with augmentation, can become joint task forces and deploy within the operational area to command and control Department of Defense forces responding to homeland defense or civil support operations.

For the past 12 months, USARNORTH has been building its organization, readiness and mission capability. USARNORTH officially assumed the Army component command duties from Forces Command on Oct. 1.

.....So now that you read that ....dig into this next page. This is where I found the previous page. And if this doesn't worry you .....your not reading the full article.


What is amazing is this Military Campaign is not even in the slightest small way reported in Mainstream News. ?


A nation with their heads in the sand wont even know what happened. It will be too bad that some Z3 Readers will have to carry the burden that they knew .... and tried to warn the masses......But the average joe citizen doesn't take it serious and or for the majority they wont even get this information!

AND even worse .if they were warned....many don't even seem to care!

Please read up on the information from the Info Wars Website.

No one else will tell you about this...but the facts speak for them selves.

I wish this all wasn't true ...More Info on....
