Former US Congresswoman, Cynthia McKinney (D-GA,) brought her "Truth Tour" to the historic Union Baptist Church, in Baltimore, MD, on August 25, 2011. Ms. McKinney has just returned from a fact-finding mission to war-torn Libya. In her remarks, she made some compelling comments about how the government and the "Special Interests Press" have used, and continues to use, their considerable resources to "demonize" peace and social justice activists. Ms. McKinney cited some examples of the activists targeted, via demonization. Of course, there are many more in that category. What I've noticed over the years, sadly, is how people who should know better buy into the demonization process. The event was sponsored by the "International Action Center."

Chile has seen its first two-day national strike since the Augusto Pinochet dictatorship. This follows clashes with police in recent weeks as hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets to demonstrate against conservative President Sebastian Pinera. On the first day of the strike, protesters barricaded roads and burned tyres in parts of the capital, Santiago. The strike was called by Chile's main umbrella trade union CUT. Other national strikes since Pinochet's time 20 years ago have been called just for one day.

The world is now seeing the economic uncertainty of the U.S. but for many Americans, it has been apparent for quite some time. Economic despair has been spreading across our nation and it can be seen by the rising number of middle class Americans losing their homes. In some cases, joblessness and inability to pay rent has forced people to live in their cars, shelters, or on the sidewalk.
