Early on the morning of Thursday, February 21st, U.S. Marshals arrested Dane Rossman at his home in Tucson, Arizona...acting on a Canadian extradition request. Dane is one of five Americans sought in Canada for alleged offenses stemming from the G20 summit...On June 26th and 27th, 2010, tens of thousands of individuals gathered in Toronto to protest the G20 summit...Dane was arrested along with over 1,100 other protesters in the largest mass arrest in Canada's history. He was processed and released without charges. Now, three years later, he is facing three charges related to alleged property damage.

I am not suggesting that everyone everywhere in the world should be vegan, especially not in the case of Indigenous peoples living traditionally with a diet that ‘includes’ sustenance hunting...but it really pisses me off when white folks use indigenous cultures and their traditions as a scapegoat excuse to continue eating factory farmed meat and cheese bought from a grocery store. Last I checked no traditional communities (Indigenous to Turtle Island or elsewhere) ever had factory farms as part of their traditional ways of life.
Last week, the "Dismantling Racism" class from St. Catherine University in Minnesota was taken on a Black Panther History Tour in Oakland and Berkeley, led by Billy X Jennings from It's About Time BPP Alumni & Legacy...An important friend and ally of the International Coalition to Free the Angola 3, Billy X Jennings' work was previously spotlighted in an interview with Angola 3 News, entitled "We Called Ourselves the Children of Malcolm."

A bill opposing the shackling of pregnant prisoners, AB 2530, has been passed unanimously by the California State Legislature and is now on Governor Jerry Brown’s desk, with thirty days to either approve or veto it. Last year, a previous version of this bill was also passed unanimously by the Legislature, but it was ultimately vetoed by Brown. With Brown’s decision expected anytime, local activists are urgently mobilizing to stop him from vetoing this important bill once again. AB 2530 supporters have created a webpage for the public (not just California residents) to contact the Governor.

Canadians in Halifax Protest Against Endless Wars as Western Backed Destabilization in Syria Threatens World Peace [Video]
The middle east is heating up. Using Libya as a template, hardcore western destabilization has been slowly simmering Syria for the past 16 months. Demonization and destabilization of Iran has been an ongoing theme for decades.

Episode 6 of the Potent News Blast covers the demonization of Iran, Canada's approval of torture, the fraud of "green" homes, and much more.
In this 5th episode of the Potent News Blast I cover various different aspects of the tyranny we find ourselves in and (for the hardcore researchers out there) I give a couple handy PC tips that should make it easier for you to absorb the information that is so rapidly and constantly pouring in these days.
"The administration tells us that we should not discuss tax reform in the election year. They would prefer to keep all discussion of the tax laws in closed rooms where the administration, its powerful friends, and their paid lobbyists, can turn every effort at reform into a new loophole for the rich and powerful."
Filmmakers Noelle Hanrahan and Stephen Vittoria further discuss their new documentary about political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal. They explain that the film's title “Long Distance Revolutionary” refers "to a man who in the 1960s, not only cut his teeth and nurtured himself on the revolution that was taking place in the streets, but wholeheartedly believed in all its tenets. Flash-forward to over forty years later and he has never stopped believing, never stopped moving that revolution forward."
