The BFUU Social Justice Committee presents

STOP THE DRONE BOMBINGS!

SUNDAY, DECEMBER 2, 2012

2:30 – 5:30 pm

A delegation of around thirty-five people from the United States went to Pakistan to meet the victim families of US drone attacks and they met with groups in opposition to drone strikes by the United States. The group of delegates, organized by CODEPINK, had a positive and welcoming response. The group participated in a protest in South Waziristan in October. The delegation met Fahim Qureshi, who lost four family members, his own eye, and had abdominal surgery after a drone struck near him. They met with Mohammed Ejaz who lost two family members in US drone attacks.

 

Toby Blome and Dianne Budd of CodePink will tell about the Drone Tour to Pakistan. See press coverage of the delegation:

The delegation met with Acting US Ambassador to Pakistan Richard Hoagland and had a breakthrough by getting him to talk specifically about US policy on the record. They delivered a letter and petitions during this meeting. The letter, signed by well-known people like authors Alice Walker, Noam Chomsky, Tom Hayden, Naomi Wolf, film director Oliver Stone, actor Danny Glover, columnist Glenn Greenwald, Nobel Peace laureate Jody Williams, professor Juan Cole, and FBI whistle-blower Coleen Rowley, called for “an immediate moratorium on US drone strikes.” They are taking their findings on a tour to report back to the American people.

The 911 Blockbuster--A Must See Video!!

9/11: Explosive Evidence -- Experts Speak Out
by Architects & Engineers for 911 Truth

The 43 technical experts interviewed in Experts Speak Out lay out the case for controlled demolition from their individual areas of expertise in hi-rise architecture, structural engineering, metallurgy, chemistry, physics, and controlled demolition. The seeming implausibility of the implications of the three World Trade Center skyscrapers being demolished with explosives is also handled quite skillfully in the film, as eight experts in psychology discuss the difficulties many people have in confronting the myth-shattering reality. This is a newly released DVD.

Eton Radio
The Must Have Emergency Tool!

Etón FR160B Microlink Self-Powered (Hand Crank Power) AM/FM/NOAA Weather Radio with Flashlight, Solar Power and Cell Phone Charger (Black)
by Eton

AM (520-1710 KHz) & FM (87-108MHz) NOAA weatherband USB cell phone charger (USB cable not included) 3.5 mm headphone Accessories: owner"s manual, warranty card

Reviews: Excellent Item for Travel, Backpacking, Camping, Etc.

This radio is a great little investment. It does exactly everything it states it should. On a 60 second crank I got hours of play. I ran the radio completely dead by leaving the light on and the radio playing at half column. I let the radio play like this with the light on for at least an hour before it went dead. I then put it out in the sun and let it charge with the solar charger for about four hours and then turned the radio on and let it play for only about an hour and then just didn't want to complete the experiment. I am very pleased with this radio. 60 seconds of cranking for hours of play is very reasonable. Letting it charge out in the sun and getting hours of play is very reasonable. I have other brands like this in the past that you would crank for 5 to 10 and get maybe 10 minutes of play.

The USB charge does work, but know that it will not charge an iPhone 3Gs. This is more a problem/restriction of the iPhone 3Gs (a widely discussed complaint across the Internet for many-many generic charging devices) and is not because of the radio. Charging my old Samsung phone was not a problem.

Capitalism: A Love StoryCapitalism: A Love Story. On the 20-year anniversary of his groundbreaking masterpiece "Roger & Me," Michael Moore's "Capitalism: A Love Story" comes home to the issue he's been examining throughout his career: the disastrous impact of corporate dominance on the everyday lives of Americans. But this time the culprit is much bigger than General Motors, and the crime scene is far wider than Flint, Michigan.
