Digital Voting Machine Flaws (4:42)
Activists and computer experts around the U.S. have become increasingly concerned that the electronic voting machines being phased in may have basic flaws in their design, allowing errors and potentially large-scale fraud. FSRN broadcast a special on the whole issue of voting processes on July 4th called Hacking Democracy, that can be heard by visiting our website, www.fsrn.org. Last week, the voting machine story sparked global interest with the publication of an independent scientific review of the voting software of one company. One of the scientists calls the software "amazingly and astonishingly wrong." Pokey Anderson brings us the latest.

While the world's attention has been fixed on the war in Iraq,
Dispatches reporter Sandra Jordan and producer Rodrigo Vasquez risk
their lives to reveal the shocking level of daily violence and murderous
hate in the Gaza Strip.
Palestinian civilians live under the threat of Israeli Defence Force attacks that do not discriminate between militants and children. Israeli setlers live in fear of suicide attacks.
But it is not only Palestinians and Israelis who are dying. Since the Gulf war, three Westerners have come under Israeli army attack.
An American peace activist was crushed to death by an IDF bulldozer; a British peace protester was shot in the head by an IDF sniper and remains in a coma; and last weekend, a British cameraman was shot dead by the IDF.
Within hours of arriving Sandra and Rodrigo are shot at and tear-gassed by Israeli troops breaking up a memorial service for Rachel Corrie, an American peace activist crushed by an Israeli Army bulldozer two days before.
That sets the tone for a five-week stay in which they document the shooting by Israeli troops of the British peace campaigner Tom Hurndall, the death of James Miller, the award-winning cameraman who worked extensively for Channel 4, killed as he filmed Israeli troops bulldozing Palestinian homes, and the deaths and mutilation of many innocent Palestinians and Israelis.
The Dispatches team reveals what life is like in what has become a fully blown war zone. Their film captures the aftermath of an Israeli missile attack that assassinates a leader of the deadly Hamas group. Children who happen to be playing in the street nearby are killed or have limbs blown off.
They film the aftermath of an attack in which Israeli troops fire modified tank shells that explode in mid air above densely populated civilian areas and spray thousands of razor sharp darts, or flechettes, in an arc some 300 metres long and 90 metres wide. The team encounters sniper fire from Israeli watchtowers, and endures tank shelling alongside a class of terrified school children.
In one of the most shocking moments in the film, Dispatches captures heartbreaking scenes in a Palestinian hospital minutes after Tom Hurndall was shot through the head, rescuing a seven-year-old child sheltering from gunfire.
While Hurndall lies in a corner, kept alive by a life support machine, his colleagues and Palestinian doctors negotiate frantically with the IDF to transfer him to an Israeli hospital, and to obtain safe passage for the Palestinian ambulance that will carry him. Hours later, with the help of the British Embassy they finally succeed, and embark on a hazardous journey to the Egyptian border. Hurndall remains in a coma.
Jordan and Vasquez also investigate the death of James Miller, the award-winning cameraman. They find that eyewitnesses tell a story sharply at variance with the official Israeli account.
Since September 2000, some 2,000 Palestinians have been killed by the Israeli Defence Forces, who routinely use F16 fighter jets, helicopter gunships and tanks to bomb and shell densely populated Palestinian residential areas. The victims include some 350 children.
In the same period Palestinian armed groups have killed more than 700 Israelis, including some 90 children. The victims were all killed in deliberate attacks, including suicide bombings.

HUMAN-RIGHTS LAW IN THE AMERICAS: ENFORCEMENT & EVASION
A Discussion with Noam Chomsky & Jennifer Harbury Moderated by Maria Aguiar
Tuesday, February 18, at 7 pm MIT Room 26-100 (and overflow in 34-101)
Open to all; admission is free; but please arrive early
We will discuss the enforcement and evasion of human-rights law in the Americas. How is a concern for human rights reflected in the domestic and foreign policy of various nations? How can government officials and others be held accountable for violating human rights? In tackling these questions our guests will help us look at things systematically and in historical perspective.
NOAM CHOMSKY is an Institute Professor at MIT. Known for his re-invention of linguistics, cognitive psychology, and aspects of philosophy, he is equally (if not more) sought after for his analysis of politics, the mass media, and US foreign policy. Over the decades, from Vietnam and East Timor to Nicaragua and Haiti, Professor Chomsky has helped expose the worst sins of the biggest government.
JENNIFER HARBURY is a human-rights attorney who represents and defends political prisoners in the US and elsewhere. After graduating from Harvard Law School she worked in Central America to protect refugees and others tormented by on-going violence. Ever since the disappearance of her husband, a leader of the Mayan resistance movement in Guatemala, she has also worked to expose his killers and their official sponsors. Her struggle has helped bring recognition for the thousands of other victims; it has convinced the US Congress to investigate human-rights and other abuses perpetrated by the US State Department and the CIA; and it has forced the US Supreme Court to contemplate the responsibility of US officials.
This event is the first part of our Spring Colloquium on Human Rights, which is co-sponsored by the MIT Large Event Fund, the MIT History Faculty, the MIT Department of Political Science, the MIT Anthropology Program, and the MIT Program in Writing and Humanistic Studies."

While making his way home to the United States, journalist Ró§¥² Calero was picked up last week at Houston Intercontinental airport. He was transported from the airport and placed in a nearby INS detention facility. While still in high school, Calero was convicted for attempting to sell marijuana to an undercover police officer. He served three years probation. Now, a permanent resident of the US for 12 years, Calero faces possible exclusion and deportation based on the old charge. Monica Lopez reports from Houston."

Though I'm usually relatively organized virtually speaking I have still yet to locate a reference by either Norman Solomon, David Barsamian, Phillip Babich (all three connected in their pursuits and with Making Contact) whereby mention is given to Boston public radio having 'two of the worst' and another noting the effective blockade on eastern (U.S) seaboard of independent media ( Alternative Radio on public radio stations aired by others).

This was a rather lengthy question session, more of which was aired during NCR, 19 minutes comprised one person who began quite confrontational questioning Noam Chomsky's legitimacy as a linguist (mathematics, intellectual history among much more) to t alk about Middle East. She began by saying 'how can you...'and in sucession claiming he was wrong on five points. When he wasn't being interrupted by her he responded to each in turn without ever asking her to repeat and even extended to a six.
He provided each with names, source references, even went back further in time than necessary in terms of historical context and remarked that he understated the case of one point.
At the end of the exchange she said 'you obviously have the facts' but I agree with Linda P. that it appeared to be less than an authentic apology.
Another question that comes to mind was aired during the hour or so question period provided during Mark Weaver's program. Someone said you certainly read a lot of papers, it's impressive'. "It's not impressive, it's a lot of hard work". He usualy en ds each talk with stating it's all within reach for citizens to do what one can to affect change where one can realistcally change the course. Attention was called to prioritzing. Though he is aware of other parts of the world, Africa for instance, he fo cus his attention. In Fateful Triangle he writes when asked for a title he can usally be sure the title 'Conflict in the Middle East' will be apt and relevant.

First a brief summary from NCR, not to be confused with NCP (WZBC's No Commercial Pontential), and I'm usually quicker, I just noticed the significance of National Radio Project (NRP); I wonder if it's intentional.
Amer Jubran (see Boston's IMC for details -another song for David Rovics maybe, 'you don't need corporate media, connected individuals, organizations and independent media do just fine) did a phone interview with a Linda and Mark.
Chuck interviewed Jimmy Tingle (recorded this afternoon) who offered 5 pairs of tickets to his show. I liked the one about some people not taking public transportation because they miss the comforts of their car so an idea is to have anyone who is going to say Cape Cod head to South Station, and then all the cars connect to form a train and get towed by one tow truck. You'd still get to enjoy the bumber-to-bumber effect!
Linda spoke with Matthew Pavonetti, Adbusters. Maybe: In conjuction with BND, how about 'refrain from corporate media day' (if you already do fine or as in the case of Howard Zinn who must endure listening to Bush recite a speech for professional reasons) and extend the awareness of independenemt media, bookshops, music, food, etc.
For Boston BND, you know those paper bags complete with an ad of the name of the shop, maybe some stylish bags with creative thoughts afixed and groups of people walking back and forth along Newbury Street (slow like I recall most people on Oxford Street in London doing) and because of the relatively narrow sidewalks in Boston you won't forcefully prevent anyone from consuming but maybe you slowdown some corporate profits.

"Carla Brown, who wrote a Harvard dissertation on the subject.
Recently the Infinite Mind had a program on touch, far reaching! Touch and information regarding positive affects on low birth weight babies in terms of weight gain, etc.
I didn't realize that some of the Cambrdige Forums are uploaded to public radio, for instance I heard from Carla Brown on NCR, that Dr. Helen Caldicott will soon most likely be heard by more people.
Also on NCR was a report produced by Aimee Smith (who I mistakingly named in Boston's IMC) and Mark Weaver regarding the Amer Jubran Defense Committe who were at INS in Boston on November 15, 2002 at 8:00 a.m.
Apparently free speech, public assembly, civil liberties when not confined to "forced zones" is viewed as a threat to misued and misguided power forces. See Boston's IndyMedia for more and One King is one too many (OnePalestine.org).
2 cents: If public radio, especially in the Boston area is either reasonably ignored (and you choose independent sources) because of its corp.., I mean underwriting bias or because of its narrow range of voices, literally and otherwise (just naming two ra tional reasons) then this results in them remaining to carry on the same. Unlike corporate newspapers public radio can be challenged.
And when it is no longer accepted that vast expressions of reality are missing from "mass media", more accurately from corporate media and when more people, mass number of them, begin getting news from independent sources then awareness about Amer Jubran will move beyond some active, concerned and dedicated citizens.
If you know of the sitcom Sanford and Son, there's a connection somewhere , maybe, Grady was taking care of the house and while cleaning he said: "Fred said for me to keep the house clean. I got to get it clean first!"
I wish I knew more about Dwayne Dickinson who gave moving account regarding Jill Stein out front of Suffolk University. Reminded me of the UMASS "free speech zone" (Mumia, debates, sidewalks...) when supporters of the-man-who-thinks or thought he invented the Internet nearly pushed some people into the bay. I had a summary of the day from Boston Common and then Dudley to UMASS but lost to accidental escape key when editing on the fly rather than from file.

The intent of the above is to highlight an evolving process to expand upon local actions in those specific areas and further existing connections between Boston and Cambridge.
Posting in IndyMedia's Open Publishing Newswire can have the effect of an actual bulletin board, one way, closed communication. Rather than a topic, be it a news report or action or process being expanded upon. In its current form facilitating and complmenting actual organizing and strengthening of community is limited in this forum.
If IMC articles and Newswire postings do not extend outward, to other organizations and individuals, it is liklely to be limited as a means to broadley connect. Someone who does not know it exits or who does not use Internet may be less likley to hear various views or inclined to continue using primarily corporte media or continue their activist pursuits independent of the IMC and other such media. Maybe leading to a dichotomy of sorts. AirWaveWEB will be trying as one way to connect (active) citizens, an attempt to smooth things out.
Limited mention if any in IMC regarding another person being taken into INS custody. A women in Boston who gave me a flyer about Roger Calero (I think I heard of him from the event Independent Media at a Time of War (Green Festivals' Program Schedule -that Martin aired) was unfamilar with the IMC.
I'm not implying that IMC denotes a mirror image of all that active citizen have as concerns and actions. There's ways to connect and complment each other from the airwave to the streets, and Internet, etc.
FSRN connects via Pacifica's network, and as Deepa says along and over 50 communiy radio stations, and active listeners share with other individuals and organizations.

It's noted and appreciated when WZBC radio extends their weekday half-hour broadcast, sometimes a full hour, of Democracy NOW!, a form of radiating in peace via its connected on-air reports, references to Iraq Journal, www.ellsberg.net, Not in Our Name, Veterns for Common Sense, Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity, and many more, and connecting with various resources such as Z magazine, Znet, Global Exchange, and as referred to in the webcasting archive of text and pointers to audio that's available via WebActive. And Free Speech Radio News, www.fsrn.org......
The second installment of a "Public Service" Radio Renoucement Vaccine, first being ACT-1 (not able to index so it's serial scroll on through), Com-Tech-1.
Recurrent expressions of the sort shown on February 15th, 2003 are evident by the string of worldwide protests and various actions reported at the top of the Democracy NOW!, what has become a daily feature highlight.
I let Martin Voelker, No-U-Turn Radio, (http://wmfo.org, 91.5 FM, AirWaveWEB) know that I appreciate his efforts. I have been supportive mostly via electronic mail and I make frequent references in Web pages and in IndyMedia's Newswire but yesterday I had to call after he said on air that along with John Grebe, Sounds of Dissent (How many email addresses does he have?) were going to be airing Democracy NOW!
The possibility of hearing it before noon as aired by WZBC's daily weekday half-hour broadcast was quite welcome. I hung up so quick that I didn't get a chance to nag him about mentioning 'Znn and other of the likes of "officials says", "Washington-Media, corporate-'Amerika, etc. (by way of noting them in affect adding to already extensive name recognition but he mentioned lesser known independent media. He did mention IndyGlobal and Boston's IMC United for Just with Peace (their URL name changes have stabilized!) and United for Peace.
A form of Radiate in Peace (RIP) is needed to connect broadly such efforts with various forms of independent media, etc.
The dreaded "no story to tell yet" or who knows:
(http://www.boston.indymedia.org/front.php3?article_id=11788) A lot of people doing something via IMC Newswire -hackphrasing M. Moore.
Z Magazine, Znet... is a fine example of extensive resources and in the case of February 15, 2003 the site had a connection link to the worldwide actions.
Any banner, especially one that is likely to be seen by many people, not just those who presumably are already active news seekers or have a degree of informed dissent and awareness and support of independent media, unlike (See Deterring Democracy, etc.) "Newspaper of Record" but together in addition to a banner sound bite of sorts have a web resource that radiates to many references, gateway to connect various resources, one-to-many, can be beneficial.
A banner message complemented with for example, www.radioateinpeace.org or an existing web site, www.unitedforperace.org.
Also there was much that was noted in the brief and concise talks by the speakers yesterday at MIT in front of student center across from 77 Mass. Avenue, but I don't recall any reference to anything other than 'the media". Why not make a reference to Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting (F.A.I.R) and others who complement with actions from research and reflections on practice by corporate media and independent media sources and media activist resources ( media matters, limited at this time).
Yesterday I wanted to print a page of AirWaveWEB flyer for further copies to distribute more widely information about existing radio resources available in Boston area and to listeners worldwide via webcasting (purposely keep reapiting this) but I was unable to make it to NEU library to make use of a printer that my alumni card still offers.
Since I am located near Tufts Medford / Somerville campus and because I was going to be heading by there I was going to print about no more than 5 pages, something I do maybe once or twice a year or so.
Not to my surprise, though, Internet access is still available without an physical or computer password ID, but now an ID is required to use the new printer access stations.
There's no reason for me to expect to be able to use Tufts library resources, or to assume living near the campus grants anyone more access than another non-student living elsewhere. I'm about a mile away, quite out-of-range of any possible virtually constant house parties! Also why should someone not paying tuition expect anything from such an institution.
There's also Inter-library access cards available via Boston Public Library (BPL) or possibilities for various university campuses to share resources with current and former students but as the case of the former the application makes it clear that it is not meant to be a convenience to allow someone to take out a book using their BPL card from say Boston College.
In order to qualify you must state a research project and what particular books you require. It is not meant for any informal lifelong learning (silly sounding but don't know how else to characterize or can recall a group focusing efforts prekindergarten and beyond) other than going to library and using what you want in but again why should the threshold be lowered to allow access such as those who pay tuition.
But I do expect peace and justice related efforts to better connect with the extended Medford / Somerville and beyond community. I did see someone at Davis Square carrying a sign. He told me about Tufts next Monday, 3-7 p.m. meeting at Chapel for open discussion and organized efforts.
I'm somewhat "connected" but I had forget the name of WMFO radio station building, Curtis Hall, and don't think I ever knew, till yesterday, that it is located at Boston Avenue and College Ave. at Post Office.
I want to stop in and try not to interrupt Hank Faunce who was on and see if coud talk with Martim before he left but security was such that I did't find it welcoming.
Hi professor Gary Goldstein I meant to contact you the first time I heard Martin Voelker refer to you and a teach-in event that was held at Tufts. Not only because I have taken childhood education courses in the summer but as a Medford resident I see a lot of missed opportunity to better connect peace and justice events with the community. Though I often hear about them there's many people who I suspect would not know. I also meant to mention it to the communications person, Margaret?
An extended report, more than was aired on FSRN, and elsewhere, by Chuck U from March 15 Mass. Ave. Standout was aired this week on the local edition of the WMBR news. It was noted that students from Sacred Heart high school, Kingston, MA. There is no question of will they future active citizens, they already are.
Maybe once Internet Radio Players I won't loose Hank or Martin (WMFO) and others because of corporate radio interference and loss of signal. On a cheapo portable radio I loose Hnk in Somervile/Cambrdige line and as far north as Melrose from a signal at Medford/Somerville.
Hank once noted that he is able to freely express himself without any sort of governor controlling his manner of on-air commentary. He once noted he would not be let go unless of course he 'pulled out a revolver'. Since WMFO radio station looks quite secure I suspect it would have to be an inside job if anyone ever did such a thing!
Ever hear 'NRP (http://www.radioproject.org) refer to a TV news program at 10:00 p.m. EST? Why would they possibly draw listeners of underwriting away? Could it be that the time coincides with another presentation of reality throughout the world. I think the time coincide with BBC.
"Saddam and Hitler are friend of MIT and Harvard" - I saw this posting along Mass. Ave. but not sure which sense it could be taken.
"Targeting Iraq", "War on Iraq", though not my intention to echo the "Official's Say" media so-called public radio also uses some naming convention, "America Goes to War" maybe to a lesser degree in terms of fear factor (don't forget, watch Friday is usually the day to further highlight such fears because maybe people have more time to think with the weekend upon the) but in all cases, like those three words that Noam Chomsky, refers to regarding the U.S, and Great Britain regarding their 'ole friend-turned-Foe, 'with our support' now it leaves out factors related to international law, getting countries to "sign-on" irrespective of vast signs of opposition by people.
Someone from the Islamic Education Center noted the "coalition forces" in reference to a letter to U.S. tat included a request 'not to use radiation again' and the host was quick, and displaying indoctrination, maybe, we he said 'Deleted Uranium (DU) and any possible factors is might cause are in dispute rather than following on he must shed light away.
Ira Jefferies (sp), maybe a problem of induction, she found "strong support" as she noted even in a 'democratic community' of mostly "African Americans" as if everyone from a characterized neighborhood thinks and acts the same.
Someone expressing thoughts said, 'it changed for me as soon as the bombing began' (what's that actually 12 years ago?) another one of those decrees, now it's time to rally behind so-called leaders; like Juliana Hatfield who expresses in her song about not having idols, I agree. I have many people who are influences and who I respect but following the leader and London Bridge is fun for children as it should be. This person went on to say, it's something we do', apparently a reference to the U.S. handing out candy and democracy through out the world. And ended with 'if you value freedom...' and 'everybody should agree...'.

'NRP yesterday had focus on the improvements made to Patriot, its ability to "hit a bullet with a bullet" and much else so-called improvements, depending or your focus and priorities given to humanity. If only some of the same innovations could focus on infrastructure; I hear water system piping and such in the United States is becoming a major concern but no time to mention such things or decaying school buildings or the cities and towns that forego retaining such structures and choose to build centralized schools as Medford, MA is doing. As it is many parents drive their children a block or so but now that one school is over by outskirts or mostly near route 16 commercial area, Hormel Stadium, I suspect it will be necessary for even those who used to walk their children to school to used their fossil fuel transporter.

Tikkun "gets its name from the Hebrew word, "tikkun," which means "to transform, heal and repair." This concept was developed in the Zohar, a central text of the Kabbalah, to refer to the kind of healing and transformation of the world, "tikkun olam," in which each of us can participate."
