Jeremy Scahill "How Do You Surrender To A Drone?"

Journalist Jeremy Scahill spoke at The Sanctuary for Independent Media in Troy NY on May 22, 2013 on the eve of President Obama's address on drone policy, just after Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. wrote a letter to members of Congress acknowledging the deaths of four Americans, including Anwar al-Awlaki, in counterterrorism strikes "outside of areas of active hostilities." Though these strikes had long been the subject of press reports about the administration's use of drones, the letter marks the first time the classified operations have been publicly acknowledged.

Just as in his new book "Dirty Wars: The World Is a Battlefield," Jeremy Scahill, author of the New York Times bestseller "Blackwater: The World's Most Powerful Mercenary Army," takes us inside America's new covert wars. He describes how the foot soldiers in these battles operate globally and inside the United States with orders from the White House to do whatever is necessary to hunt down, capture, or kill individuals designated by the president as enemies.

Milk Not Jails Powerpoint

Milk Not Jails performs at the book launch for "Maroon the Implacable" by political prisoner Russell Maroon Shoatz on March 22, 2013 at The Sanctuary for Independent Media in Troy NY. It was the opening night of a convergence called "Changing the Climate: (r)Evolution for social and environmental justice" organized by Ecosocialist Horizons. During the prison construction boom of the 1980s and 1990s, many economically depressed, rural towns hoped that prisons would jump start their local economies. New York's prison population has tripled since 1980 and a disproportionate number of those incarcerated are black and Latino folks from just a few New York City neighborhoods. Milk Not Jails is an economic alternative to the prison industry. They are a dairy marketing and distribution co-operative and they are a political campaign building an alliance for a sustainable and just regional economy. Milk Not Jails is building a regional economy that depends on bringing city residents local, healthy food, not locking them up.
