Despite what you may think about America, we still have numerous political prisoners behind bars and plenty of people in jail for victimless crimes. If we don’t hang together, surely we will all hang separately. I saw a need for people to have a place where information about political prisoners could be kept up to date, so I set this url to go to a section of The Freedom Line forums. I hope you’ll take advantage of this to create a thread for someone you know who needs support. Thank you to Lyn Ulbricht and Briana Bundy for your support in the launch of this effort.

A coordinated day of protests around the world last November 5 was planned by members of the amorphous hacktivist group Anonymous. New documents indicate that Anons weren’t the only one interested in those events, however. . . . From Description posted with video.
Texas: Activists Say Lone Star State Moving Towards Marijuana Legalization
By Steve Elliott
Optimism is a good thing, don’t you think? Some activists say FBI crime statistics will help move Texas closer to legalizing marijuana.
Mason Tvert of the Marijuana Policy Project (MPP) points to new crime stats showing African Americans, while only making up about 12 percent of Texas’ population, are arrested far more often than whites for marijuana possession, reports CBS DFW.
“There is no logical reason why law enforcement officials should be spending their time arresting and prosecuting adults simply for possessing a product that is objectively less harmful than alcohol,” Tvert said. . . . Read Complete report
Marijuana Legalization Could Come to Texas, and Law Students are Helping Figure How
Rehman Bhalesha was raised around marijuana. That’s not to say that he dealt, or that he pushed, or that he used. He didn’t have to. Weed, growing up, turned up wherever he went.
“Living in South Texas, you really see the substance flood high school and college campuses and neighborhoods, without any regulation, in a completely illicit market,” Bhalesha, set to be a third-year student at the South Texas College of Law, told Hair Balls. “I’ve spent my entire life seeing a strong need [for regulation].” . . .

Monsanto hires infamous mercenary firm Blackwater to track activists around the world
(NaturalNews) Remember the private mercenary army Blackwater that caused such a stir in Iraq during an unprovoked attack in 2007? Apparently, Monsanto and the controversial security firm are in bed together, described by blogger Randy Ananda as “a death-tech firm weds a hit squad.” At this point, you might be wondering what in the world the GM seed giant needs with the services of a ‘shadow army’? It appears as though the corporation found it necessary to contract with Blackwater in order to collect intelligence on anti-Monsanto activists as well infiltrate their ranks. . . . Read Complete Report
A report by Jeremy Scahill in The Nation (Blackwater’s Black Ops, 9/15/2010) revealed that the largest mercenary army in the world, Blackwater (now called Xe Services) clandestine intelligence services was sold to the multinational Monsanto. Blackwater was renamed in 2009 after becoming famous in the world with numerous reports of abuses in Iraq, including massacres of civilians. It remains the largest private contractor of the U.S. Department of State “security services,” that practices state terrorism by giving the government the opportunity to deny it. . . .

NOTE: THEI does not use FACEBOOK, the FEDS information gathering service. I realize they still get the info from other sources, but FACEBOOK is known for spying on it’s members and passing it on to the governments 3-letter rogue policing agencies. In protest we are out of that loop. . . EDITOR
A recent Freedom of Information Act request has revealed that the FBI wants what it calls “food activists” prosecuted as terrorists, perhaps because nothing could more terrifying than exposing where our so-called food comes from and how it is manufactured.
Most Americans don’t really care where their food comes from or how it is made. All that matters is that it’s cheap and tastes good. Unfortunately for the food industry, not everyone is that stupid anymore. There is a growing desire to eat food that is healthy and produced in a cruel-free, sustainable way, stemming in part from the efforts of the food activists who have revealed the brutal, unnatural way our food is manufactured.
Thus, the FBI wants them classified as terrorists.
In the the brave new world of 21st century America, terrorism has evolved to mean anything that threatens the status quo or challenges the standings or profits of the corporate entities that have reduced our government agencies to the status of a pawns. . . . continue report
Rumors have been around for 50 years that various animals are skinned alive for the fur and leather. The latest claim that cows are skinned alive is being spread on Facebook and other places on the internet. I have looked into this claim and from my research this is strictly a case of Urban Legend. The following explains it best. . . . Your Editor Dennis Crenshaw
5 Reasons Why It’s Ridiculous to Claim Animals are Skinned Alive
One of the most insulting and insidious lies spread by animal activists is that animals are “skinned alive” for their fur.
The origins of this vicious lie go back fully 50 years, to the first seal-hunt protests, and those charges were soon proved to be false, as we will explain soon. Ten years ago, the old myth was revived – this time about Asiatic raccoons. Since then, activists have become more and more extravagant, claiming (and, no doubt, believing) that rabbits, mink and other species are also treated cruelly, including being skinned alive.
One of the main goals of Truth About Fur is to debunk falsehoods about the fur industry, so let’s make something perfectly clear: Animals are NOT skinned alive for their fur. Period.
Here are some of the reasons why it is absolutely ridiculous to even suggest it. . . . Read Complete Report
Is’s defiantly a dirty and horrible business – they do skin animals – but at least they kill them first not “skin them live”. While the lie that animals are “skinned alive” for their skins is included in the video below, the truth is bad enough without including that lie. The rest of the content ot the presented video is true according to everything I have looked at on the subject and for that reason I posted it.
The video is presented by PEDA, an organization I dislike for various reasons. Mainly their resorting to lies.
However the video should be watched so you know about the cruelty that goes into producing your leather products. After all, we all wear shoes.. . . Your Editor Dennis Crenshaw
Could you step into the life of a cow in the leather trade for just one minute? Most leather comes from developing countries, such as India and China, where animal welfare laws are either non-existent or not enforced. In India, a PETA investigation found that workers break cows’ tails and rub chili peppers and tobacco into their eyes in order to force them to get up and walk after they collapse from exhaustion on the way to the slaughterhouse.
Adam was arrested on a bogus warrant and did a week in jail as a result of this. He was held for Maryland to pick him up from jail in DC and they never did. This is not some big conspiracy, just another case of petty harassment of activists that is a feature of modern America, where everything I want to do is illegal. 😉
