FIFA Gets The Red Card

Fifteen thousand families have been forcibly relocated to make room for stadiums and infrastructure for the World Cup in Brazil. A thousand military-backed police and 200,000 soldiers have been deployed for "security" and the suppression of popular protests against the eviction and displacement of poor families to make room for the World Cup. Police have raided the homes of activists and pre-emptively arrested at least 8 on the eve of the tournament.

Enjoy the football, everybody.

God Save The King! (new Spanish flag)

One thing I'm thankful to Al Jazeera for is that it lets me follow the recent events in Spain in far greater detail than I ever could on CNNMSNBCFox.

Here's one in solidarity with Spaniards all over their country taking the streets to protest economic "austerity" and the ruination of their economy by the bankers, and to demand an end to the monarchy following the abdication of King Juan Carlos.

God Save The King -- and his fascist regime!
