Coup Underway In Turkey – Martial Law, Curfews, And Explosions Throughout The Country

By Brandon Turbeville

Turkey is now the center of world attention as a military coup has been launched against the Erdogan government. While nothing has been confirmed from media organizations as of yet, some reports coming out of news agencies like CNN are suggesting that the Turkish military has indeed seized control over the government and subsequently imposed martial law.

Other reports are suggesting that Erdogan and his government are still in control, though even the most optimistic reports do not place Erdogan in full control over the Turkish government at the time of the writing of this article...

Turkish Military’s Influence Rises Again

Turkey’s military, which has forced four civilian governments from power since 1960, is re-emerging as a pivotal actor alongside Mr. Erdogan, who has long viewed the army as a potentially dangerous adversary.

Mr. Erdogan’s moves to sideline political opponents—he forced out his handpicked prime minister this month amid a power struggle—has cleared the way for Turkey’s generals to play a greater role in shaping Mr. Erdogan’s attempts to extend his global influence.

Turkish generals are tempering Mr. Erdogan’s push to send troops into Syria, managing a controversial military campaign against Kurdish insurgents, and protecting Turkey’s relations with Western allies who view the president with suspicion. By steering clear of politics, they re-emerged as a central player in national security decisions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So this has been building for a while!

Turkey army says has taken power over country

The Turkish army says it has taken power over the country and that the rule of law must remain a priority.

"The power in the country has been seized in its entirety," said a military statement read on NTV television, without giving further details.

Let's see who the Turkish Military supports if this coup is successful...the US or Russia...then we will know for sure if US / Saudi Money bought them off or nationalism and security with their neighbours decided this defining moment...

Turkish military seizes state power according to media reports; jets flyover Ankara, Istanbul’s bridges closed

The Turkish military has reportedly released a statement to Reuters confirming they are in control of the government.
Turkish military aircraft were also reported flying low over the capital of Ankara late on Friday evening (July 15), according to Agence France-Presse.

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim claims part of the military is attempting to overtake the country.

Yildirim added that it would be wrong to refer to the attempt as a coup, but denounced the "illegal attempt" to seize power by "a group" in the military.

"This is a mutiny attempt. We will not let this attempt win. We will uphold democracy," he said on Turkish NTV.

America and Rome - a Tale of Two Republics

The United States of 2016 has a staggering amount of similarities with the ancient Roman Republic

The United States of America is going through a tumultuous period in its modern history. I would argue it’s a transitional period, and that the history of the great American Republic is analogous to another historical Republic: Ancient Rome.

While scholars talk about an “American Empire” and its inevitable decline, it seems that this comparison is not entirely grounded (yet). The best way to look at America in 2016 (in historic context) is to look at the era of the late Roman Republic, and that its decline and fall led to the rise of something far more nefarious.

US public education: Bullshit to train stupefied work animals. Student leadership/ASB as entertainment committee with occasional gestures toward real-world problems but never recognizing bullshit ‘Big Lies’ of US rogue state (6 of 12)

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

lead: to go before or with to show the way.

Public education for leadership is mostly an entertainment committee to manage dances and athletic rallies. When they address public service, their work becomes tragic-comic by:

Misleading students to believe gestures such as annual food drives is the way to show leadership regarding poverty, or sending care packages is leadership to support our troops, and failing to recognize and act upon long-term solutions to problems they choose to address.
Failing to recognize, articulate, and act upon “Big Lies” of their US rogue state centered in illegal Wars of Aggression, bankster looting that directly attacks school funding, and constant lying through official and corporate media sources that include their own texts.
Let’s consider the above points in detail.

Example 1:

Memphis Newspaper Apologizes for Accurate Headline After BLM Protests

A Memphis newspaper has come out and apologized for an entirely accurate headline after Black Lives Matter supporters protested its use.

The Commercial Appeal ran the headline "Gunman Targeted Whites" on the front page of their paper after the Dallas shooting where the gunman himself declared he "wanted to kill white people" and "especially white officers."

Five out of six cops killed that day were white and pointing out the shooter targeted whites is a statement of fact.

Nonetheless, The Commercial Appeal's editor Louis Graham felt the need to write a gigantic, groveling apology.

Vladimir Putin Is The Only Leader The West Has — Paul Craig Roberts

Putin does not want war. He is doing everything in his power to avoid it.

The trip-point of World War III will be the installation of Washington’s missiles in Poland and Romania. As Putin recently made clear to the imbecilic Western journalists, these missiles can easily and secretly be changed from anti-ballistic missiles to nuclear attack missiles that can strike their Russian targets within 5 or fewer minutes of launch, thus depriving Russia of its retaliatory deterrent. Once these missiles are in place, Washington can issue orders to Russia.

Whatever the evil men and women in Washington who are gambling with the life of the planet think, Russia is not going to accept these missiles.

Brexit campaigner David Davis to lead Britain out of the EU in Theresa May’s new Cabinet

Mr Davis, a former Tory leadership rival to David Cameron, has described Brexit as one of the biggest issues facing Britain.

“The biggest issue over coming years will be managing Brexit, improving UK trade position, controlling borders and enhancing democracy,” Mr Davis tweeted last month.

Making trade deals with countries outside Europe should be a top priority.

“That needs vision, optimism, energy and drive – that is why I am backing @BorisJohnson for Conservative leader,” he added.

TRUTHstreammedia’s powerful 7 minute analysis:

1-minute video of George Bush, Sr.’s apparent duping delight of JFK’s assassination:

George W. Bush’s presidency helped reveal US presidents as teleprompter “Reader in Chief” propagandists rather than anyone close to expressing intelligent leadership, with Obama continuing US decline to Bozo democracy. The role of these “leaders” is to hide a rogue state empire, but as the video demonstrates, public discovery of facts make it more difficult for them to keep a straight face.

The Reasons Why The Globalists Are Destined To Lose

By Brandon Smith

Under the surface of almost every sociopolitical and economic event in the world there burns an ever-raging, but often unseen, war. This war, for now, is fought with fiction and with truth, with journalistic combat and with quiet individual deeds. It is defined by two sides which could not be more philosophically or spiritually separate.

On one side is a pervasive network of corporate moguls and elites, banking entities, international financial consortiums, think tanks and political puppets. They work tirelessly to reshape public psychology and society as a whole into something they sometimes call the “New World Order;” a completely and scientifically centralized planet in which they control every aspect of government, trade, life and even moral compass. I often refer to them simply as the “Globalists,” which is how they at times refer to themselves.

MugabeThere was a joke when I left then Rhodesia that the Zimbabwe ruins would be all that was left if Robert Mugabe ever assumed power. Well it came to pass and Mugabe has brought an agriculturally abundant, prosperous and formerly stable country to the brink of ruin.

In The Aftermath Of The Murder Of Berta Cáceres: Squashing Indigenous Resistance And Discrediting International Observers In Honduras

People who work for human rights, the rights of Indigenous communities, protection of our global environment, and social justice, are demanding justice after the murder of Berta Cáceres. She was killed in early March when gunmen broke into her house and shot her. It is abundantly clear to many Hondurans and international supporters and observers that her killing was political. Cáceres was the charismatic leader of COPINH, an organization begun in 1993 by Lenca communities in Honduras to promote their rights and protect their traditional lands, and to work with other Indigenous and popular organizations.

Settler colonialism, usually technologically and militarily more advanced, is based on the erasure of already existent people, their culture and their memory, and substituting it with new foreign national entity that builds new culture, new history and new memory.

Casting Call for Extras, Actors During Cleveland RNC Violence

By Jon Rappoport

“Here’s your chance to take to the streets and protest for a cause you believe in. Many thousands will be at your side. When the violence hits, you can run, go crazy, and hopefully escape police batons, water cannons, and flying bullets…”

This isn’t one company looking for actors and extras to protest against Trump in the streets of Cleveland, during the Republican National Convention next week. This is much bigger.

This is a year-long recruitment drive for extras.

You can’t have violence from just a few lone individuals on a quiet street in a city. It doesn’t play well for the media...

Even With the Dallas Murders — Police Safer Now Than They Have Been in Decades

No matter what politicians and police unions would have you believe, police are safer now than they have been in decades — the number of targeted killings of law enforcement continues to decline each year.

Set aside whatever bias you might harbor on the issue of police violence and violence against police — it’s time to examine the facts.

Statistics prove, even if politicians like former congressman Joe Walsh refuse to face facts, the ‘war on cops’ is pure fiction

But politicians would prefer you not know the truth since that wouldn’t further their preferred narrative of misguided activists upset over police killing civilians — and would prevent effective reform through demilitarization or other means, instead of an escalation in police authoritarianism.

Civil Unrest Explodes In Berlin - Over 3500 People Riot Against Police

The biggest and most violent protest in Germany erupted in Berlin over the weekend exactly with our models calling for an explosion in civil unrest.

Jul 11 10:35

CIVIL UNREST EXPLODES IN BERLIN - OVER 3500 PEOPLE RIOT AGAINST POLICE

Some 1800 police were called in and at least 120 policemen were injured in what is becoming a street battle. This has been the most aggressive and violent protest in Germany for the past five years.

Protesters were throwing bottles, cobblestones and fireworks, as well as they destroyed cars in addition to attacking police officers. It appears at least 3,500 rioters took part in the uprising and possibly more than 4,000.

The protest is against police operations and involved mostly young people who have risen up against the police operations in the Riga street area. Protesters wore black hoods carrying banners with slogans like “Riga defend 94” and “Housing solidarity against state terror.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder who these people will be voting for in their September elections; or if they think that the German political process has failed them so utterly that voting is an act of complete irrelevance.

The same kind of thing happened earlier this year in France.

But one thing is very clear; the leadership in both countries needs to adapt, and change, or they will be out on their collective ears, come the next election.

US veterans on Chilcot: we need our own inquiry to avoid repeating mistakes

UK’s investigation into Iraq invasion is ‘example of what we could do with political courage’, says codirector of Iraq Veterans against the War.

The UK’s Chilcot inquiry was released on Wednesday, and while it is no secret in the US that the invasion was a failure, nothing so damning as the 2.6m-word British inquiry has been released by an independent US government body.

Chilcot and the End of the Anglosphere – Justin Raimondo

Bush’s poodle subordinated British sovereignty – and precipitated a disaster.

A good decade after being announced, the Chilcot report has finally been released, and what it shows is that the phrase “Bush’s poodle” is blatantly unfair to poodles: after all, even a poodle is known to have gone off its leash every once in a while – but not Tony.

3 BOGGLING FACTS IN HILLARY EMAIL COVER-UP/DALLAS SHOOTING

Arch-Globalist Hillary Clinton’s no-prosecution, the recent exit of Britain from the EU which torpedoed the unchecked advance of Globalism, the current Presidential campaign which features a candidate (formerly two candidates) attacking Globalism as no major candidate ever has before—all this suddenly fades from public consciousness in the specter of the Dallas shootings—the racial conflict that has been decades in the making—made in America, by Globalists, for the express purpose of Divide and Conquer.

I know full well how incompetent, stupid, amateurish, and ill-prepared government employees can be. But the dog and pony Hillary show of the last few days is truly staggering.

If the effort was to exonerate Hillary Clinton, it was done so badly the American people are more certain than ever that she is guilty as sin.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Comey and the Clintons go back decades, so the fix was absolutely in from the get-go.

And as deeply as my sympathies go for both the families and friends of those assassinated by police departments in Louisiana and Minnesota, and for the families and friends of those police who were assassinated in Dallas, there is one issue we have to look at here, and that is the issue of timing; notice that these shootings just knocked the Clinton email scandal right off the top of the news, toward the end of last week.

Yes, I know it sounds cynical as all hell to be saying this right now. But if word comes down from Higher Up that an incident is needed, to distract the
American public from that to which it should be paying attention, such a word will go out.

I am reminded of the horrific incident with Chandra Levy and the Congressional Representative Gary Condit, in the summer of 2001. Chandra Levy was murdered, and ultimately, the government got a patsy to confess and take the rap for it. But it was the "distraction du jour" for that summer.

But in the summer of 2001 was when the Bush Administration was quietly informing world leaders that they were going to invade Afghanistan, while we here in the US were being "Conditized", or, as a magician would characterise it, being "misdirected" from something very critical which was about to happen.

And then, 9/11 was allowed to happen.

So please, as much as we mourn the loss that these horrific events have created, pay attention to everything else which is going on as though your life and future, and your families' life and future depended on it, because it does.

Preliminary findings indicate Scott may have targeted people and officers after being troubled by recent events involving African-Americans and law enforcement officers in other parts of the country.

Call for a Washington Demonstration to Stop the Drive to World-War III

This is a call for demonstrations in Washington to stop the drive to World War III.

In its pursuit of planet-wide dominance, the U.S. government has over the past 15 years waged wars which have moved our planet step-by-step to the precipice of a nuclear war which can destroy our planet. It has initiated illegal wars of aggression which continue in various forms to this day in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Libya, while covertly financing and arming Jihadists in Syria and other countries.

Meanwhile, U.S. government-led Nato forces have for some time sought military encirclement of Russia, with U.S. and Nato forces now moving up to its very borders on the false pretext of imaginary ‘Russian aggression, while new military bases and movement of high tech military equipment, new military bases, and engagements in the South China sea threaten to trigger war with China.

“If we’re going to start using—as a country—this kind of drone technology and robots on a civilian population, then we’re easing into a civil war,” she told TIME. “We’re easing into one because we have civilians who believe that the government is not protecting them, and we have a government who believes that civilians are armed enough that they have to use military tactics.”

More Will Be Assassinated In The Coming Days! Do You Like The Work Of Our Assassins? Get Your Own Sniper" read a post on the Black Power Political Organisation Facebook account

A Facebook page claiming to represent a black power group has posted messages claiming responsibility for the deaths of five police officers in Dallas.

Five officers were gunned down by at least two shooters who picked out officers from an 'elevated position' - believed to be a multi-storey car park.

It came in the week of public outrage over the deaths of two unarmed black men shot by police.

The gunman has been named as Micah Xavier Johnson, from Texas, who served with the US Army Reserve for six years and served for a time in Afghanistan.

Three officers - Michael Kroll, Brent Thompson and Patrick Zamarripa - have been identified so far.

The so-called Black Power Political Organization claimed on its Facebook account that it was behind the attack and that 'more assassinations are coming'.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF, in fact, such a Facebook page exists, or existed before it was pulled, this smells to high heaven as a "psych op", engineered to encourage race riots this summer.

And President Obama's most likely response, if people are foolish enough to fall for this, rather than sit down and have some hard, real discussions with people of ALL races, will be:

1. The suspension of the Constitution and Bill of Rights
2. The imposition of national martial law.
3. The postponement of the elections which are supposed to happen in November, particularly if it appears that Trump is going to win in a landslide.

And what do we know about this shooter?!? Was he, perhaps, a "Manchurian candidate" of some kind? Was he taking, or getting off, anti-depressants at the time he did this?!? Of course, we will never know, as he was shot dead at the scene.

But I am sure of one thing; the narrative that the government will be putting forward will be one of "domestic terrorist", and try to convince the public that there are many more of them to fear, and only the government can "protect us" from them.

But if the government can" protect us", why were they not able to protect the Dallas police who got assassinated?!? Why were they not able to protect the people at the "Pulse" night club in Orlando?!?

Police Who Killed Concealed Carry Driver Were Trained By DHS, FBI, U.S. Secret Service, & National Guard

Officers Jeronimo Yanez and Joseph Kauser have both been on the St. Anthony Police force for four years, and have been put on 'administrative leave.' A statement from the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension names officer Jeronimo Yanez as the shooter. The St. Anthony Police Department has been a part a Hennepin County Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) Tactical Team since 2004. The team falls under the authority of the Hennepin County Sheriff's Office. Official police archives reveal that the St. Anthony police dept. has received funding and training from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the FBI, U.S. Secret Service, and the National Guard.

Police Chief Tells FOX News that Assassins Are 'Cowards'

I disagree with the chief in this Fox news video who said that the shooters were cowards. I'd say that a cop who murders an open-carry guy with his wife and kid and then whines, cusses, cries and screams at the widow and 4 year old in angst and regret for the murder he realizes he just committed, is a completely pussified coward. The people who successfully plotted and carried out the assassination of a 5 out of a dozen cops without killing a single protester or bystander are professionals. They knew they were risking their lives and going up against the entire city, state and federal governments. They are not cowards. I am not saying I agree with them, because I don't. I think murder is wrong. They might be homicidal maniacs, and very effective assassins, but they are definitely not cowards.

Attacking Police and Enacting Violence Will Do Nothing to Stop Brutality — It Will Make it Far Worse

By Matt Agorist

Late Thursday night, during an entirely peaceful protest, murderers opened fire on crowds of police officers. Five Dallas cops were tragically killed and six others injured.

These apparently unprovoked attacks on individuals who were not directly involved in threatening the life of the shooters are a hindrance to the progression of liberty and police accountability.

Random acts of violence will only serve to undo what little progress those of us in the peaceful movement have accomplished and, in fact, will reverse it and prevent any future progress...

'He wanted to kill white people, especially white officers': Police kill sniper after twelve cops were shot - and FIVE killed - during furious nationwide protests over U.S. police shootings of two black men that ended in a four hour stand-off

This one is starting to stink already!

Authorities have identified the shooter as Micah Xavier Johnson, a 25-year-old from Texas with no criminal history or ties to terror groups. He allegedly claimed to have acted alone, countering previous reports that as many as four gunmen were involved in the massacre. Three other suspects were taken into custody at the scene Thursday night, but Chief Brown refused to go into detail about these arrests. However, he said that his department is still not certain that everyone involved in the attack.

Why Did Killer Cops Demand ID From Vehicle Passenger Anyway? It's ILLEGAL.

I've covered this topic many times before, but it deserves a reprise, especially given the recent murder of Philando Castile. He was simply a passenger in the vehicle driven by his girlfriend, who was stopped for a petty fix-it ticket.

Webmaster addition: The video was taken using the front camera of the iPhone, which flips the image like a mirror. If you look carefully, you see the steering wheel in front of the young man and the cop's wristwatch also gives it away that it is a mirror image. The part that REALLY bothers me is how all the "cops" stand there for a whole minute doing nothing while the girl screams into her cell phone.

Dallas Police Keep Up Photo Of False 'Suspect', After He Is Cleared

Dallas Protester Mark Hughes' photograph was posted on twitter last night by the Dallas Police Dept. and plastered on news outlets and internet sites worldwide as one of the shooting suspects. Hughes was later interviewed by the TV news and says that he was talking to police when the photo was posted. He feared for his safety and says he has not received an apology or seen a retraction from the police. Matter of fact, at this time 357AM Central Texas time, Hughes photo still appears on the Dallas PD twitter page with the caption "This is one of our suspects. Please help us find him!" Hughes was legally open carrying in the photo that the police posted. The twitter posts and TV interview with Hughes is below.

Gun Battle Between Dallas Police and Snipers on Video

DALLAS — At least two snipers opened fire on police officers in Dallas on Thursday night, killing four officers and injuring seven others during protests over two recent fatal police shootings of black men, police said.

Dallas Police Chief David Brown told reporters the snipers fired “ambush style” upon the officers. Mayor Mike Rawlings said one member of the public was wounded in the gunfire.

Dallas Police: Snipers Shoot 11 Officers, 4 Dead

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – A peaceful protest against nationwide officer-involved shootings took a sinister turn at about 9 p.m. Thursday night after snipers shot 11 police officers, killing four, according to Dallas Police Chief Brown.

“Some officers were shot in the back,” said Chief Brown, who added during a press conference that they believe a bomb may be hidden somewhere downtown.

Police named Mark Hughes, whose brother is one of the organizers of the rally as a person of interest. He later turned himself in. Another alleged suspect was in a shootout with SWAT officers before he was taken into custody late Thursday night. SWAT found a suspicious package near him and the DPD bomb squad secured it.

"Causes and Necessity of taking up Arms" 1775. Are we there yet?

"Declaration of the Causes and Necessity of taking up Arms" written July 6, 1775, was a declaration by the Representatives of the United Colonies of North-America setting forth the causes and necessity of their taking up arms.
Based on this document compared with our situation in the United States today, how close are we to the situation that our forefathers had when they declared they were taking arms?

Four basic reasons given for taking arms against the King of England.
1. The Legislature must show "an inordinate passion" for unjustifiable power that is rejected by the constitution.
2. The people are not successful in legal contests against the Government in regards to truth and laws.

3. Our politicians and leaders, can't be chosen by the people (ie. no vote or fixed voting), are exempt from the laws and are not subject to the people's control.

4. The people have to have tried peaceful means of changing the government for at least ten years without results.

Texas Governor Has Called For CONVENTION OF THE STATES – To STOP Barack Obama – It’s Happening…

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is calling for “The Texas Plan.” He wants a convention of the states and to invoke Article V of the US Constitution so new amendments can be proposed to rein in the federal government. Abbott has been at the forefront of stopping illegal immigration in his state and across the US. He wholeheartedly endorses Ted Cruz for president as well. Some of the amendments in the proposal include prohibiting administrative agencies and the unelected bureaucrats from creating and preempting federal law; mandating that Congress balance its budget; allowing a two-thirds majority of the states to override a US Supreme Court decision, federal law or regulation; and prohibiting Congress from regulating activity that occurs within one state’s borders. I think it sounds fantastic.

Hillary Rebuffs Bernie’s Policy Demands

Eager to hold the political “center,” Hillary Clinton has budged little on Bernie Sanders’s policy proposals beyond nice-sounding platitudes, a strategy that could lead to clashes at the Democratic convention, says Lawrence Davidson.

Hillary Clinton has pursued the presidency for almost a decade with a tenacious determination. She almost achieved the nomination in 2008 only to lose to Barack Obama. That led to an eight-year stifling of this ambition.

Finally, in the long run-up to the 2016 election, she was convinced the nomination was hers.

Jeremy Corbyn gives #Chilcot statement

The much-edited Chilcot Report finally arrived and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has issued a pretty-sounding apology for his party’s decision to go to war in Iraq in 2003. He called it the most serious foreign policy calamity of the last 60 years and “a stain on our party and country”.

It’s unfortunate that he dignifies the evil Iraq war conspiracy by suggesting it had anything to do with policy of the British people. It was a private venture, pledged in secret, by a Labour prime minister and his closest henchmen, and backed by the Cabinet.

Iraq Verdict: Trouble if heads don’t roll

First and foremost it was not so much a foreign policy disaster as a flat-out war crime for which Blair as chief perpetrator must be tried. And so must his Cabinet, who carry collective responsibility.

There will be mega-trouble if heads don’t roll.

A PERIOD OF MAJOR CIVIL UNREST LOOMS – HOW TO WIN AN INEVITABLE CONFRONTATION WITH THE STATUS QUO

To summarize, I think the activist community across American needs to do two things:

1. Stick together. Black, white, rural, urban, we are all in this together. Don’t allow yourselves to become divided — we have the same opponent. Never forget that.

2. Keep things non-violent. If violence happens, always make sure the government fires the first shots. If the general public perceives you to be out there looking for a fight as opposed to reacting to state aggression, you will lose. Think outside the box, be creative and employ non-violent civil disobedience whenever possible.

1,400 US Mayors Just Slammed the White House for Risking Nuclear War With Russia

War games and nuclear policy perpetuated by the Obama administration are “fueling growing tensions” with Russia and putting the world at risk of a nuclear war, according to an official nonpartisan organization consisting of 1,407 mayors and other leaders of cities with 30,000 or more inhabitants.

In a unanimous decision at their 84th annual conference, the United States Conference of Mayors (USCM) passed a resolution condemning President Barack Obama’s decision to set the U.S. on track to spend $1 trillion over the next 30 years to “maintain and modernize its nuclear bombs and warheads, production facilities, delivery systems, and command and control.”

“The Obama administration has […] reduced the US nuclear stockpile less than any post-Cold War presidency,” the resolution, passed in Indianapolis on June 27, reads.

Elie Wiesel: Poseur For Peace

An obvious and oft-sighted criticism of the Nobel Peace Prize is just how many of its recipients have virtually no connection to the cause of peace or its advancement. If anything often it seems a reward for its negation. Henry Kissinger, recipient in 1973, would have to be the gold standard here. That very year saw Kissinger orchestrate the destruction of democracy in Chile and that was only after the secret bombing of Cambodia was concluded. Of Course stretch it forward and backward a couple of years and Kissinger’s trail of destruction extends from Bangladesh to East Timor.

France is in chaos once again as thousands of protesters swarm the streets in their millions in protest against the ruling class who they say are taking away their rights.

“No Pay Since February:” Interview With A Haitian Doctor On Strike

I had the opportunity to sit down with a young Haitian resident physician yesterday. He is one of 450 Haitian resident physicians who has been on strike since March 18. This physician strike has closed down Haiti’s three main public hospitals: General Hospital (University Hospital-HUEH) and Hopital Universitaire de la Paix (HUP) in Port-au-Prince, and Hopital Justinien in Cap Haitien. It is the longest physician strike in Haiti’s recent history.

Just Say NO To The State

I was trying to summon up a rush of pride to write about what makes our country great, and all I could think about was how far we’ve sunk. How distant we’ve ventured from those original settlers who said, “No more!” and declared their independence. They fought and sacrificed to be free of a government that oppressed them, taxed them, stole from them, and enforced rules without any type of representation upon them.
