Americans already paranoid about the NSA monitoring their online communications and Facebook sharing their location will find no comfort with new technology that makes it possible for anyone to install a recording device in any common house lamp.
Kyle McDonald and Brian House, who described themselves as artists during an interview with Wired, have posted a video online showing how anyone with $100 can buy the necessary components to build their own light with the ability to listen in on discussions taking place nearby.
The device known as “Coversnitch” also purports the ability to post snippets from these conversations directly onto Twitter for the world to see.

Resistance Movement in Luhansk, East Ukraine, with their homemade Antifa flag.
Redditors on r/anarchism are describing these antifascists as “scary,”
Fighting Nazism is not child’s play or for kids. It’s serious business. Take a good look again at what happened in World War II.

4/19/2014 marked 25 years ago since the City of New York violated the rights of 5 innocent Black & Latino boys who became known as the Central Park Five.
25 years ago, after being coerced into confessing, the Central Park Five spent 7-13 years in jail for a crime they never committed. 25 years ago, Donald Trump took out full page ads in 4 New York City newspapers calling for the execution of five INNOCENT Black and Latino boys.
11 years after filing a $250 million civil suit, the Central Park Five have yet to receive a settlement or formal apology. Justice delayed IS justice denied!

"We are very saddened to learn of the passing of Mabel Williams, the legendary African-American activist, who, with her husband Robert F. Williams, fought for and carried out the right of armed self-defense against the vicious attacks of the Ku Klux Klan, militantly represented the liberation struggle of her people during exile in Cuba, China, and Africa, and continued her active lifelong engagement in social justice struggles upon their return to the US.
Mabel Williams was born June 1, 1931 and transitioned Saturday, April 19th, 2014 at her family’s home in Detroit. There will be a Saturday homegoing in Detroit on April 26th, 2014 and she will be returned to Monroe, North Carolina shortly thereafter according to her son John Williams.
The Freedom Archives is honored to be able to offer these audio and video selections as a special tribute to Mabel Williams—the legendary African-American freedom fighter who we’ve had the good fortune to work closely with on several documentaries and events. Mabel Williams has made lifelong contributions in her own right and this needs to be recognized and celebrated. Yes, she was the lifelong comrade and companion of her justly famous husband Robert F. Williams—and she was with him every step of their courageous way—in Monroe North Carolina where, as NAACP leaders, they and other activists organized for racial equality and dramatized the right of self-defense against the vicious attacks of the Ku Klux Klan—with Mabel defending her home, Robert, and her two sons with shotgun and determination.
While she often downplayed her role, Mabel, among many other activities, illustrated and wrote articles for their influential newsletter The Crusader, narrated and selected music for their radio program from Cuba, “Radio Free Dixie,” collaborated on the famous book, Negroes with Guns, was a strong voice for her people in Canada, Cuba, Mexico, Moscow, China, Japan, Vietnam, Europe, and Africa, and met with revolutionary leaders, such as Fidel Castro, Ho Chi Minh, and Mao Zedong,
There could be no more fitting tribute than to highlight this woman whose militant anti-racist internationalism is powerfully expressed in her lifetime of dedicated energy around the world, then returning again to the Empire from which they had been exiled, and where she continued her social activism. We hope these selections from programs of the Freedom Archives and from an interview by Walter Turner on his radio program “Africa Today” provide insight into the lasting liberation legacy of Mabel Williams.”

"From climate change to Crimea, the natural gas industry is supreme at exploiting crisis for private gain – what I call the shock doctrine" — NK
Last week, in a decision that contorted both law and fact, a state judge ruled against an illiterate, intellectually disabled black man named Jerry Hartfield. Hartfield has been imprisoned for more than 33 years — without a valid conviction or sentence authorizing his confinement. In the latest decision, the judge ruled that even though state and local officials clearly were negligent in letting Hartfield slip through the cracks all these decades, there is nothing in the Constitution that provides him with any protection from being retried. It’s the fact that 10 months have passed since the state courts in Texas (after many years of prodding) first acknowledged the terrible mistake that was made in this case.
