Tom Dispatch: Graduation Day with Howard Zinn

Against Discouragement

'Consider the words of #Howard #Zinn as he urges the #students of #Spelman #College not to be discouraged, not to despair, but to enter the world with their heads held high, imagining what each of them might do for him or herself -- and for the rest of us.' #... mehr anzeigen
 
#quote #howardzinn #zinn #obedience

“Civil disobedience is not our problem. Our problem is civil obedience. Our problem is that people all over the world have obeyed the dictates of leaders…and millions have been killed because of this obedience…Our problem is that people are obedient all over the world in the face of poverty and starvation and stupidity, and war, and cruelty. Our problem is that people are obedient while the jails are full of petty thieves… (and) the grand thieves are running the country. That’s our problem.” ... Howard Zinn

Erstmal "besserwissen" (sorry): #Gold, #Zinn, #Tantal und #Wolfram sind Metalle und keine Mineralien. Gemeint sind die Mineralien (Erze) aus denen genau diese Metalle gewonnen werden können, bis auf Gold, das kommt als Edelmetall in seiner elementaren Form vor (s.g. Nuggets).

Und #Kobalt gehört mit dazu, oder?
 

Petition gegen #Konfliktmineralien

#Laptops, #Handys und #Glühlampen -- in vielen Gegenständen stecken sogenannte Konfliktmineralien. Dazu zählen #Gold, #Zinn, #Tantal und #Wolfram, die in Staaten wie dem #Kongo, #Kolumbien und #Myanmar abgebaut und mit deren Erlös blutige #Kriege finanziert werden. Oft müssen #Kinder oder #Zwangsarbeiter in den #Minen schuften.



Bisher gibt es kein Gesetz, das Unternehmen verbietet, Konfliktmineralien zu kaufen und in ihren Produkten zu verarbeiten. Das könnte sich bald ändern.

Die EU-Verhandlungen über die Konfliktmineralien-Verordnung beginnen am 1. Februar,... http://action.sumofus.org/de/a/EU-Konfliktmineralien-de/?akid=16730.5327502.smU61u&rd=1&sub=fwd&t=1

Tödliche Profite mit Konfliktmineralien.

Die Konzernlobby will ein neues EU-Gesetz verhindern -- und sorgt so weltweit für die Finanzierung blutiger Konflikte

Thou Shalt Not Kill: Chris Hedges

Repulsed by tales of U.S. atrocities told by veterans of the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, Spc. Robert Weilbacher applied for and was granted conscientious objector status. Then the Pentagon pulled a fast one, leaving him trapped in a hypermasculine dystopia.

Narrated by Zinn, this version opens with the events of 9/11 and then jumps back to explore the cycles of U.S.
