Hundreds of American protesters, angered by Israel’s recent deadly assault on the Gaza Strip, gathered at the Port of Oakland to block an Israeli ship from unloading its cargo.
Workers with the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) refused to unload the Zim Shanghai as about 200 activists picketed outside several of the port’s gates on Saturday morning.
The cargo ship is managed by Israel’s largest shipping firm, Zim Integrated Shipping Services.
About 50 police officers were also present at the port.
The protesters said they would continue with their “Block the Boat” campaign.
They said Israeli authorities must be held responsible for the deaths of more than 2,100 Palestinians during the recent 50-day war on Gaza.
Monsanto’s experimental genetically modified wheat has been discovered growing in a second US field in Montana, about a year after the discovery of the company’s unapproved crop growing in Oregon disrupted US wheat exports.
The plants were discovered at a test site at Montana State University, where back in 2000-2003 Monsanto was conducting field trials of its wheat, genetically modified to tolerate Roundup herbicide.
Although the government believes the wheat never reached market, it has still opened an investigation into finding the rogue plants at a site that was not supposed to host any tests after 2003, USDA’s Department of Agriculture’s Animal & Plant Health Inspection Service announced on Friday.
“We’ve now opened an investigation into this regulatory compliance issue,” said Bernadette Juarez, director of investigative and enforcement services for APHIS, adding however that “there are no safety issues with this wheat.”
Welcome along to another Monday night beaming and streaming out from the volcano after another week of fear porn and terrornoia from the main stream media with the same script being run in all English speaking countries; beheadings, threats and raids that have lead to “only humanitarian aid” to planes enroute and talk of troops on the ground…and the loss of freedoms, which we are reassured are for our own safety…of course.

On Friday September 26th in Window Rock, Arizona, leaders of the Navajo Nation and the US Government will sign a settlement that compensates the Navajo Nation for the federal government’s mishandling of their land during the past 60 years. This will be the largest ever settlement distributed by the US Government to a Native American tribe.
The Navajo Nation is the largest Native American tribe by both population and mass, with some 300,000 members spanning 27,000 square miles of Arizona, New Mexico and Utah. From 1946 – 2012, the US Government held in trust some 14 million acres of Navajo land from which it extracted coal, gas, uranium and oil in what has been deemed an ‘irresponsible manner.’ This payment will settle the lawsuit filed by the Navajo Nation in 2006 that the US government did not negotiate appropriate deals with the entities mining resources from their land, nor did they properly reimburse the tribe for the value of the resources extracted from the land, and they also did not adequately invest the earnings on the tribe’s behalf.

US Senate Banking Committee members are calling for hearings and full investigation into alleged ties between Federal Reserve supervisors and officials at Goldman Sachs, a bank the Fed was supposed to be policing.
Congress must hold “oversight hearings on the disturbing issues” raised by the secretly recorded conversations between the Fed and Goldman officials, Senator Elizabeth Warren (Mass, D) said on Friday. Portions of recordings from 2011 and 2012 were recently made public, apparently showing unwillingness by some Fed supervisors to both demand information from Goldman Sachs and criticize its conflict-of-interest policy.

“When regulators care more about protecting big banks from accountability than they do about protecting the American people from risky and illegal behavior on Wall Street, it threatens our whole economy,” Warren said in an emailed statement to Reuters, adding that the issues raised by the whistleblower should be addressed when Congress returns in November.
