Whatever your opinion about mandatory vaccination, it is worth viewing this film. Mandatory vaccination with NO EXCEPTIONS is being implemented all around the USA for children and soon will be mandatory for all adults.

Background:
Documentarian Jeff Hays’ film is dedicated to uncovering, exposing and highlighting the facts all individuals have a right to know. Bought is a film about the issue of health being sold out from underneath individuals through big pharmaceutical companies, dangerous vaccinations and a food supply chain contaminated by the use of GMO’s.

Jeff Hays started Capstone Entertainment in the mid-nineties and built a production/distribution company to a multi-million dollar level and won numerous awards in children’s programming. One of Jeff’s most notable films was Fahrenhype 9/11, which he produced in 2004 featuring Ron Silver, Dick Morris, Senator Zell Miller, Mayor Ed Koch and others. This film generated millions in revenue and was widely accepted by the public and received positive reviews from the NY Times, Variety and other media. In 2005, Jeff produced On Native Soil where he was short-listed for an Academy Award. He also produced My Workout on Lifetime Television for a year and most recently released Doctored which has already sold over 150,000 copies.
Bought is committed to uncovering the facts so each person can make the decision that is right for him or her. Landmark cases have been won this year in U.S. Vaccine Court, granting families of autistic children financial awards for the damage caused to their children by vaccinations. For the first time ever, several of these families have agreed to be interviewed on camera, and let their stories be heard publicly.
It appears much of the medical/industrial/governmental machine is about sacrificing a few, for the supposed greater good of others,” said Jeff Hays, producer of Bought. “We intend to ignite a national conversation that involves parents nationwide and stirs the curiosity of millions. I want to ignite that innate portion of our human instinct that is designed to question and ultimately protect each of us from harm. I know this is controversial, and it should be. The days of just accepting what the medical community, the media and the government say should be gone.”The American Academy of Pediatrics says that vaccines work, that vaccines are safe, and that vaccines are necessary. Yet:

<  Over 5,000 cases alleging a causal relationship between vaccinations and autism have been filed under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program in the US Court of Federal Claims between 2001 and 2009 <  The US Court of Federal Claims Office of Special Masters, between 1988 and 2009, has awarded compensation to 1,322 families whose children suffered brain damage from vaccines

 <  Over $2 billion of our tax dollars has been awarded to families who have been injured or killed by vaccine reactions by this “Vaccine Court” <  About 30,000 cases of adverse reactions to vaccines have been reported annually to the federal government since 1990, with 13% classified as serious, meaning associated with permanent disability, hospitalization, life-threatening illness or death

 <  Autism has skyrocketed from 1 in 10,000 to nearly 1 in 38 American children (according to some reports)

Jeff’s parting comment, “Just look at the fact that it wasn’t until 1998 that the U.S. Public Health Service Group determined that thimerosal could give children a dose of mercury that exceeded the limit considered safe by government standards. Every person has the right to know what they are consuming or being given by the medical community.”

Tampa area activists join Global Hunger Strike in solidarity with Palestinian Political Prisoner Khader Adnan

Tampa area activists join Global Hunger Strike in solidarity with Palestinian Political Prisoner Khader Adnan

This event will take place on Wednesday, June 17th at 7:30pm at the Community Cafe at 2444 Central Avenue in St Petersburg, Florida. Dezeray Lyn, an organizer of the hunger strike, who recently returned from the West Bank, will poignantly share some of her experiences of Palestinian life under Israeli Occupation, including her many interviews with Palestinian political prisoners. “Khader Adnan is one of over 500 Palestinians locked down in Israeli administrative detention. Khader’s response, and our response in solidarity with his struggle is a message that the people will not allow these crimes to continue unabated, said Lyn.

Amidst worldwide concern, Political Prisoner Khader Adnan begins his 44th day of Hunger Strike in critical condition, to protest Israel’s practice of Administrative Detention. Administrative Detention keeps innocent men, women and children imprisoned without charge or trial, some for years. Adnan, a baker and father of 6 young children has been arrested 10 times under Administrative Detention. In 2012 his 66 Day hunger strike created enough worldwide condemnation for Israel’s abuse of Political Prisoners that Adnan was released and other prisoners’ human rights demands were conceded to. Adnan was rearrested this year without charge and began his hunger strike on May 5th.

To show solidarity Tampa area activists are hosting this 24 hour hunger strike online. Supporters have been posting “selfies” at https://www.facebook.com/events/1441119716194516. Photos will be compiled into an album or video and shared with Palestinian media and prisoners’ rights groups.

Miami activists will also join millions of people who condemn Israel’s practice of Adminstrative Detention as they fast and demonstrate at the Israeli Consulate, Wednesday June 17 at 4:30pm.

“Israel has to be held accountable for crimes that go against international law and common human decency. Imprisoning men, women and children for years without charge or trial goes against every fiber of a moral society” said Bettejo Indelicato, an organizer of the action. Indelicato was recently held in detention and deported from Israel on the basis that her human rights monitoring in the Occupied West Bank was a security threat to Israel.

Green Screen for June: Citizen Four

citizenfour
Tuesday, June 2nd at 4:30 pm The Hernando County Green Party will show the Academy Award winning film: Citizen Four (114 minutes) This is the story of how Edward Snowden made contact with the press.
The public is welcome to join us for this free presentation. We will also have refreshments. This is the final edition of our Laura Poitras trilogy. Call Suzanne at 352-666-7576 for more info.
BACKGROUND :
In January 2013, Laura Poitras received an encrypted e-mail from a stranger who called himself Citizen Four.[3] In it, he offered her inside information about illegal wiretapping practices of the US National Security Agency (NSA) and other intelligence agencies. Poitras had already been working for several years on a film about monitoring programs in the US that were the result of the September 11 attacks. In June 2013, accompanied by investigative journalist Glenn Greenwald and The Guardian intelligence reporter Ewen MacAskill,[4] she went to Hong Kong with her camera for the first meeting with the stranger, who identified himself as Edward Snowden.
After four days of interviews, on June 9 Snowden’s identity is made public at his request. As media outlets begin to discover his location at the The Mira Hong Kong, Snowden relocates to Poitras’ room in an attempt to elude phone calls made to his room. Facing potential extradition and prosecution in the United States, Snowden schedules a meeting with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and applies for refugee status. After Poitras believes she is being followed, she leaves Hong Kong for Berlin.
On June 21, the US government requests the Hong Kong government extradite Snowden. Snowden manages to depart from Hong Kong, but his American passport is cancelled before he can connect to Havana, and he is stranded in the Sheremetyevo International Airport in Moscow. On August 1, 2013 the Russian government granted Snowden temporary asylum for a period of one year.[5] Meanwhile, Greenwald has returned to his home in Rio de Janeiro, and speaks publicly about United States’ utilization of NSA programs for foreign surveillance. Greenwald and Poitras maintain a correspondence wherein they both express reluctance to return to the United States.
Throughout, the film offers smaller vignettes that precede and follow Snowden’s Hong Kong interviews, including William Binney speaking about NSA programs, and eventually testifying before the German Parliament regarding NSA spying in Germany.
The film closes with Greenwald, Snowden and Poitras meeting once again, this time in Russia. Greenwald and Snowden discuss new emerging details on US intelligence programs, careful to only write down and not speak critical pieces of information. Greenwald tears these documents creating a pile of scraps, before slowly removing them from the table.

Fight for $15 and a Living Wage 4/15/2015

FloridaFightFor15_illbethere

PLEASE JOIN US! It is coming down to the Wire! The largest nation wide STRIKE, WALK OUT, and RALLY of Low Wage workers in US history is happening next Wed. April 15, 2015 in 190 cities across the US.

Please join us for events to happen in the Tampa Bay area starting at 6AM in the morning in St. Petersburg, then going to City in St. Pete at 10AM, then going into Tampa for several events at USF, a picnic at a park in “Suitcase City” in Tampa, a culminating in a March at 3pm near Fowler Ave. Please call at 727 278 1547 or bruce@stpeteprogressives.org. to confirm interest. WE NEED YOU and need to know how many are covering. Transportation and Food provided, but we need to know if you are coming. Full schedule will be sent to you. Thanks, Bruce Wright, Poor People’ Economic Human Rights Campaign, My Place In Recovery, The Fight for 15, and the Green Party, and Green Shadow Cabinet. Join our Fight for 15 in Florida! We believe that low-wage fast food workers are short-changed every day that goes by that they’re not making a living wage from fast-food companies that are profiting billions per year. We believe that no matter what you’re doing, if you’re working hard and still can’t afford to live then there’s a major problem going on. The fast-food industry caters to the growing tourist economies in Florida, and these workers are the life-blood of these stores. It’s time past-due that we treat them with respect and give them the opportunity to make a living wage and the right to form a union without retaliation.

Enough is enough; communities and workers in FL, it’s time to end the fast-food struggle by joining the movement to improve the quality of life for thousands of exploited workers in the fast-food industry in Florida.

Text of our endorsement (below):

****************************

Dear Fight for $15 Tampa,

I am contacting you on behalf of the Gulf Coast Greens. The Gulf Coast Greens are a coalition of activists and organizers building a network of Greens, coalition partners and our supporters to forward the Green progressive movement in Florida in a broad way. The Greens support the eradication of poverty and our platform calls for it via Universal Basic Income (UBI) which is garnering support from notable Libertarians as well. In the meantime and to that end we want to offer material support to movements that address a specific form of poverty (aka: “working” poverty) as well and Fight for $15 is doing just that.

Florida service sector families are in crisis. It’s been an ongoing crisis that has deepened due to the economic downturn combined with 40 years of austerity and wage repression that have eroded family income and have exacerbated the inhumane conditions working families have to endure to survive. The embrace of neo-liberal policies by both major parties (aka: pre-FDR liberalism of the “Old Deal”) makes it clear we aren’t going to simply “elect” our way out of this and movements are required to create the kind of leverage for progressive and reformist efforts to succeed.

Greens are in your midst albeit we haven’t manifested that organizationally yet. We aim to change that. Ending poverty is not going to be easy in a country whose mindset is to simply “manage” poverty and it’s worst symptoms (“poorly” we might add). Working people have less leverage than ever and that’s been by design legislatively and we have to all stand up and lend leverage to economic justice for working people and start unwinding chronic systemic poverty.

To this end, we aim to endorse Fight for $15. We want to build on existing movements and not run anything in parallel that works to divide and fracture the effort. We want to know how we can help and bring people into the movement as well. Let’s explore what’s possible!

Sincerely,

James Jones

Secretary, Gulf Coast Greens
