    Pamela Engel and Colin Campbell October 13, 2014Prominent activist Cornel West has been handcuffed during demonstrations in Ferguson, Missouri, according to Fusion and reporters on Twitter.

Protesters planned a "day of action" Monday, demanding the arrest of the police officer who shot unarmed black teenager Michael Brown....

This movement is the "eye of the storm" of the civil rights movement of today. For more than 57 days, people of Ferguson have picketed; sat-in; conducted a massive voter registration drive which resulted in 3,000 new voters; held special church gatherings; raised money to help Michael's family; and developed media to address the local and national crisis of police brutality...

    Hundreds of nurses have staged a protest rally in Las Vegas, Nevada, warning that US hospitals aren't ready for an Ebola outbreak and demanding more action by authorities against a possible epidemic in the US. About 1,000 nurses and healthcare workers attended the Planet Nurse convention on Wednesday, chanting slogans to raise awareness about the increasing danger and death from Ebola. The protesters highlighted the lack of training, equipment and isolation rooms where suspected Ebola-infected patients in the US could be quarantined. They also took part in what they called a “die-in” by laying on the ground in imitation of...

    Hong Kong police have fired repeated volleys of tear gas to disperse pro-democracy protests and baton-charged the crowd blocking a key road in the government district after official warnings against illegal demonstrations. Student groups are spearheading a civil disobedience campaign along with democracy activists to pressure Beijing into granting full democracy to Hong Kong. The city's central district descended into chaos on Sunday as chanting protesters converged on police barricades surrounding their colleagues, who had earlier launched a "new era" of civil disobedience. Riot police staged repeated pepper spray and baton charges and threw tear gas at the crowds. Police...

    Those in politics who spend much of their time railing about the dangers associated with anthropogenic climate change will often assert that the public largely shares their concerns about catastrophic climate shifts. You rarely hear from those oft-cited members of the public who are supposedly alarmed by climate change alarmism. Reason Magazine’s Kmele Foster, co-host of Fox Business Network’s The Independents, revealed why that is when he took to the People’s Climate March in New York City this weekend armed with a camera and a microphone. Unsurprisingly, the People’s March more resembled a throwback anti-capitalism protest than it did...

    The violence that turns a small-town protest into a fiery national spectacle like the one that has played out this month in Missouri is often unwittingly provoked by police, according to researchers at UC Berkeley. The research team, which studied clashes between police and activists during the Occupy movement three years ago, found that protests tend to turn violent when officers use aggressive tactics, such as approaching demonstrators in riot gear or lining up in military-like formations.

    Thursday’s “National Day Of Rage” planned by the hacktivist group Anonymous against the Aug. 9 police shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo. failed to materialize in any remotely significant way. Anonymous had called for a protest in 37 cities. A Facebook posting dated Thursday shows that organizers had also envisioned nationwide protests in the early evening in dozens of additional cities — everywhere from Helena, Mont. (pop. 29,134) to Perryville, Mo. (pop. 8,225) The protests were a huge dud.

But the Zim Piraeus, which arrived in San Francisco Bay on Sunday afternoon, is not unloading — and might not anytime soon. The problem with the Piraeus is that Israel Corporation, Israel’s largest holding company, founded by the Jewish state’s government in 1968, owns 32 percent of the Piraeus’s operator, Zim Integrated Shipping...

Keep a particular eye around Nellis AFB and especially Creech AFB (Predator Drones). If you see something, say something. Asking for tolerance and indulgence from the admins to put this on the Front Page News bar.
