French Vote Today: Polls Show Fear of Change, “We Are Not That Kind Of A People”

This morning at 9 EST: I join Reverend Jesse Jackson on his weekly radio program: Keephopealiveradio.com

QUOTE OF THE DAY: Dwight David Eisenhower, former General and President

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.

This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. The cost of one modern heavy bomber is this: a modern brick school in more than 30 cities. It is two electric power plants, each serving a town of 60,000 population. We pay for a single fighter with a half-million bushels of wheat. We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people. This is not a way of life at all, in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron.

•Reuters: Greeks Vote in Angry Elections

Iran: Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has suffered a fresh setback in run-off parliamentary polls.

Mr Ahmadinejad’s supporters won only 13 of the 65 seats up for election in Friday’s vote, further reducing his power base in the 290-seat parliament.

•Fox News: Occupy A Big Hit In Iran

•Libertarians Pick Gary Johnson For President

LAS VEGAS – The Libertarian Party nominated former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson for President of the United States, expressing confidence he will be able to find effective small-government solutions to the country’s most pressing problems and mount a strong challenge to his major party rivals.

Mr. Johnson was declared the party’s Presidential nominee after he won 70% percent of the vote in the first round of balloting by the 595 delegates of the National Libertarian Convention held at the Red Rock Resort in Las Vegas, NV.

•Naked Capitalism: How did Quebec Students Mobilize Hundreds of Thousands for Strike?

It’s telling that the fact that hundreds of thousands of people in Quebec have been striking for over two months has gone virtually unreported in the US. This Real News Network interview helps explain how protests against tuition hikes have evolved into a broad based effort to reverse the neoliberal policies of the incumbent provincial government.

LBN: Egypt: Protests in Egypt on Friday ended in violence with one person dead and more than 300 injured. Demonstrators threw rocks at security forces, and water cannons were used to control crowds after Egyptians filled the streets to voice their frustration with the slow rate of reform in the country’s military-led government. The military has imposed a curfew on Abbasiya Square in the Cairo neighborhood where the demonstrations took place. Similar protests Wednesday led to 11 deaths and dozens of injuries. The Freedom and Justice Party, the political arm of the Muslim Brotherhood, has been active in the protests.

LBN, CHina:Despite China’s announcement Friday that it would allow blind human-rights activist Chen Guangcheng to leave the country for the United States with his family, other critics of the Chinese government say they don’t expect to see much improvement in the country. I think that after the Chen Guangcheng incident, the situation for us will just become worse and worse, said a supporter of Chens who said he may have been assaulted by plainclothes police while going to see Chen in the hospital last week. Another activist, Liu Feiyue, said that Chen was lucky to have the U.S. step in to defend him. Not all dissident cases can become international issues, Feiyue said.
