The Gamers’ Uprising Against Wall Street Has Deep Populist Roots
Ellen Brown: Wall Street still owns the country. Millions of people have been forced out of work, while billionaires have doubled their money in the stock market. But a new generation of “retail” stock market traders is fighting back. ... Occupy Wall Street succeeded in raising awareness of the issues and putting a spotlight on the villains: the chief fault for the subprime crisis and 2008 crash was not with the defaulting homeowners but was with the banks. ... Not until January 2021 was Wall Street actually “occupied,” with millions of small traders landing a multibillion-dollar blow to at least a few of the mighty Wall Street hedge funds...

GOP Tax Agenda Is a Grave Threat to People in Poverty
John Bouman: Just as the season of giving takes hold, congressional Republicans are advancing tax legislation at a breakneck pace that would deliver massive giveaways to the ultra-rich at the expense of everyone else. ... After driving up the federal deficit by some $1.5 trillion dollars over the next decade to pay for those tax cuts to the super-wealthy, lawmakers will likely use these shortfalls as pretext to slash programs like Medicaid, Medicare, and food and housing assistance — just as congressional Republicans voted to do earlier this year. ... The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has already warned lawmakers that their tax plan could trigger an automatic $25 billion cut to Medicare in 2018 alone... Visit Website ]

Journalists Who Want Online Privacy Need To Read This Guide
Chris Paulus: It is imperative that journalists protect themselves as they continue to pursue their important work in the face of growing government control. That is why Michael Dagan, a former deputy editor of the Israeli newspaper Haaertz, and Ariel Hochstadt, a former security expert as well as a marketing expert for Google, have created a guide, Online Privacy for Journalists, to help journalists protect both themselves and their sources. ... Here are some examples: Beware of big names because they are known to blindly comply with requests from the government for information. ...

July 4, 2012 - March to End Illegal Surveillance - Photos
A Very, very bright and warm day in Denver for the gathering to Restore the Fourth Amendment on the Fourth. Starting with a small group at noon, the crowd continued to increase at the Capitol Building until about 100-150 people took part in the march down the 16th street Mall. (Unfortunately an incident with a policeman caused a woman to be arrested and later another man was arrested also. Both have been released on bail.)

May Day in Denver 2013 - Photos
Oh My God - not a typical spring day - more like a bad winter dream - cold, wet, snow. Perhaps the theme should have been "Global Warming" or "Mother Nature Strikes Back". But it was - Labor Call To Path to Citizenship, rally and march in support of comprehensive, common sense, immigration reform.

Occupy Denver - Stop The Empire - Protest The Presidential Debate!
A pleasant Autumn night in McWilliams Park, the staging area for Occupy Denver, the leaves gently falling as well as the temperatures and the light ebbing away, hopefully along with the Empire. It was a gathering together of a motley crew of activists, Green Party for President Jill Stein and her VP Cheri Honkala, the rock band Pressure Point (quite good), Chicken Man in costume, local citizens, news people, puppets (or as some would say news people puppets)...
