LAND: The week in review April 2-9
Liberty Action News Digest

Sorry about the sketchy coverage this week, I was out of town trying to help a very ill relative escape the medical bureaucracy; returned late Thursday night and tried to catch up for y'all...

After a 'Week of walkouts' at schools to support the immigrant protests, and more demonstrations, the US Senate decided to shelve the immigration bill (a standard gov't ploy to make folks forget about an issue) ... but these protestors ('The new civil rights movement') aren't giving up ... as thousands rallied in Texas and other states today, with more demonstrations planned for Monday.

In police state news, a whistle blower from AT&T 'outs' the NSA spy room, the Pentagon admits more spying on activists, and in Tennessee Lawmakers 'rethink' a draconian bill targeting protests.

On the bright side, 24 communities in Wisconsin vote for Iraq pullout and Mennonites in Tennessee whose homes and barns were ravaged by twisters work together to rebuild their homes.

In commentaries this week, don't miss Claire Wolfe's 'Simplicity and prosperity: Observations while on the road', Vin Suprynowicz on "I wanted to like "V for Vendetta" and JPFO's 'V for Vendetta -- questions to consider'. I particularly recommend 'How GI resistance altered the course of history' (a review of 'Sir, No Sir', 'the untold story of the GI movement to end the war in Vietnam')... send this to your friends and family in the military (though it probably won't make it past the censors.)

Til next week

For freedom!
