Michael Moore: "The Rich Are Staging a Coup This Morning ..."

Interesante, el michael moore dice que la causa de la ruina de tantas familias americanas son las facturas del médico, no las hipotecas, y que es eso lo que hay que hacer en los USA, sanidad pública.
Diriía que tiene toda la razón, falta que alguien le escuche.


Let me cut to the chase. The biggest robbery in the history of this country is taking place as you read this. Though no guns are being used, 300 million hostages are being taken. Make no mistake about it: After stealing a half trillion dollars to line the pockets of their war-profiteering backers for the past five years, after lining the pockets of their fellow oilmen to the tune of over a hundred billion dollars in just the last two years, Bush and his cronies -- who must soon vacate the White House -- are looting the U.S. Treasury of every dollar they can grab. They are swiping as much of the silverware as they can on their way out the door.

No matter what they say, no matter how many scare words they use, they are up to their old tricks of creating fear and confusion in order to make and keep themselves and the upper one percent filthy rich. Just read the first four paragraphs of the lead story in last Monday's New York Times and you can see what the real deal is:

"Even as policy makers worked on details of a $700 billion bailout of the financial industry, Wall Street began looking for ways to profit from it.

"Financial firms were lobbying to have all manner of troubled investments covered, not just those related to mortgages.

"At the same time, investment firms were jockeying to oversee all the assets that Treasury plans to take off the books of financial institutions, a role that could earn them hundreds of millions of dollars a year in fees.

"Nobody wants to be left out of Treasury's proposal to buy up bad assets of financial institutions."

Unbelievable. Wall Street and its backers created this mess and now they are going to clean up like bandits. Even Rudy Giuliani is lobbying for his firm to be hired (and paid) to "consult" in the bailout.

The problem is, nobody truly knows what this "collapse" is all about. Even Treasury Secretary Paulson admitted he doesn't know the exact amount that is needed (he just picked the $700 billion number out of his head!). The head of the congressional budget office said he can't figure it out nor can he explain it to anyone.

And yet, they are screeching about how the end is near! Panic! Recession! The Great Depression! Y2K! Bird flu! Killer bees! We must pass the bailout bill today!! The sky is falling! The sky is falling!

Falling for whom? NOTHING in this "bailout" package will lower the price of the gas you have to put in your car to get to work. NOTHING in this bill will protect you from losing your home. NOTHING in this bill will give you health insurance.

Health insurance? Mike, why are you bringing this up? What's this got to do with the Wall Street collapse?

It has everything to do with it. This so-called "collapse" was triggered by the massive defaulting and foreclosures going on with people's home mortgages. Do you know why so many Americans are losing their homes? To hear the Republicans describe it, it's because too many working class idiots were given mortgages that they really couldn't afford. Here's the truth: The number one cause of people declaring bankruptcy is because of medical bills. Let me state this simply: If we had had universal health coverage, this mortgage "crisis" may never have happened.

This bailout's mission is to protect the obscene amount of wealth that has been accumulated in the last eight years. It's to protect the top shareholders who own and control corporate America. It's to make sure their yachts and mansions and "way of life" go uninterrupted while the rest of America suffers and struggles to pay the bills. Let the rich suffer for once. Let them pay for the bailout. We are spending 400 million dollars a day on the war in Iraq. Let them end the war immediately and save us all another half-trillion dollars!

I have to stop writing this and you have to stop reading it. They are staging a financial coup this morning in our country. They are hoping Congress will act fast before they stop to think, before we have a chance to stop them ourselves. So stop reading this and do something -- NOW! Here's what you can do immediately:

1. Call or e-mail Senator Obama. Tell him he does not need to be sitting there trying to help prop up Bush and Cheney and the mess they've made. Tell him we know he has the smarts to slow this thing down and figure out what's the best route to take. Tell him the rich have to pay for whatever help is offered. Use the leverage we have now to insist on a moratorium on home foreclosures, to insist on a move to universal health coverage, and tell him that we the people need to be in charge of the economic decisions that affect our lives, not the barons of Wall Street.

2. Take to the streets. Participate in one of the hundreds of quickly-called demonstrations that are taking place all over the country (especially those near Wall Street and DC).

3. Call your Representative in Congress and your Senators. (click here to find their phone numbers). Tell them what you told Senator Obama.

When you screw up in life, there is hell to pay. Each and every one of you reading this knows that basic lesson and has paid the consequences of your actions at some point. In this great democracy, we cannot let there be one set of rules for the vast majority of hard-working citizens, and another set of rules for the elite, who, when they screw up, are handed one more gift on a silver platter. No more! Not again!

Michael Moore

P.S. Having read further the details of this bailout bill, you need to know you are being lied to. They talk about how they will prevent golden parachutes. It says NOTHING about what these executives and fat cats will make in SALARY. According to Rep. Brad Sherman of California, these top managers will continue to receive million-dollar-a-month paychecks under this new bill. There is no direct ownership given to the American people for the money being handed over. Foreign banks and investors will be allowed to receive billion-dollar handouts. A large chunk of this $700 billion is going to be given directly to Chinese and Middle Eastern banks. There is NO guarantee of ever seeing that money again.

P.P.S. From talking to people I know in DC, they say the reason so many Dems are behind this is because Wall Street this weekend put a gun to their heads and said either turn over the $700 billion or the first thing we'll start blowing up are the pension funds and 401(k)s of your middle class constituents. The Dems are scared they may make good on their threat. But this is not the time to back down or act like the typical Democrat we have witnessed for the last eight years. The Dems handed a stolen election over to Bush. The Dems gave Bush the votes he needed to invade a sovereign country. Once they took over Congress in 2007, they refused to pull the plug on the war. And now they have been cowered into being accomplices in the crime of the century. You have to call them now and say "NO!" If we let them do this, just imagine how hard it will be to get anything good done when President Obama is in the White House. THESE DEMOCRATS ARE ONLY AS STRONG AS THE BACKBONE WE GIVE THEM. CALL CONGRESS NOW.

activismo siglo XXI

Un activista presume de haber robado 492.000 € a 39 bancos

  1. • Enric Duran dice que dará a "planes sociales alternativos" lo que obtuvo con 68 créditos
  2. • Ni los Mossos ni la fiscalía han recibido denuncia alguna de las entidades afectadas

sea cierta o no la historia lo remarcable es que
1. los periódicos "serios" NI NOMBRAN la acción.
2. los que lo nombran no hablan del contenido del texto distribuido, solo destacan el hecho de que alguien ha incumplido la ley, ANULANDO el efecto perseguido por la acción.

después están los garrulos de la CEOE que piden un POQUITO DE COMUNISMO hasta que recuperen las ganacias.

"los beneficios para mí, las perdidas para todos"

Dimecres 17 de 21:50 a 22h APAGADA MUNDIAL: acción contra la BANCA

Amics i amigues, companyes i companys

Sóc l'Enric, creador i redactor del butlletí cat@moviments.cat. Aquesta setmana no hi ha el butlletí habitual, perquè és una data assenyalada.
La propera setmana me'n tornaré a encarregar des d'alla on estigui, intentant tornar als dilluns com a l'inici.

Avui, 17 de setembre, faig pública l'acció de desobediència civil a la banca que portava més de 2 anys duent a terme.

Potser a hores d'ara ja ho sabeu, perquè la noticia ha sorprés a la premsa, i no hi hagut fins ara els filtres que ens trobem en d'altres ocasions.

He expropiat 492.000 euros a 39 entitats bancàries a través de 68 operacions de crèdits. Incloent interessos de demora, la xifra actual del deute és de més de 500.000 euros que no pagaré.

Ha estat una acció individual d'insubmissió a la banca que he realitzat premeditadament per denunciar el sistema bancari i per destinar els diners a iniciatives que alertin de la crisi sistèmica que estem començant a viure, i que tractin de construir una alternativa de societat.

Es tracta d'una acció aliena a cap tipus de violència, que reivindico com una nova forma de desobediència civil, a l'alçada dels temps que corren. Quan el fiinançament al consum i l'especulació són dominants a la nostra societat, què millor que "robar" als que ens roben i repartir els diners entre els grups que ho denuncien i construeixen alternatives?

Podeu trobar tota la informació detallada d'aquesta acció a:

i a les pàgines centrals de la publicació CRISI

També podeu contactar amb mi a enric@enricduran.cat

CRISI: Publicació gratuïta per sobreviure a les turbulències econòmiques" que aquest matí ha sortit al carrer i que a través de centenars de col·lectius i persones individuals que actuen com a voluntàries, s'està repartint a dia d'avui per més de 200 poblacions de Catalunya, i en menor mesura Illes Balears i Pais Valencià. De la publicació, de 20 pàgines, se n'han fet 200.000 exemplars, bona part dels quals seran repartits durant el dia d'avui. Com que volem que la notícia arribi a la gent del carrer sense ser filtrada pels mass media i és amb tots aquests exemplars, la pàgina web i l'ajuda i difusió de molta gent que ho volem aconseguir.

CRISI, centra les seves pàgines en explicar el rerafons de les diferents crisis de l'actualitat, així com en el poder de la banca, com estament central del sistema capitalista actual, que ostenta el privilegi de la creació de diners i amb aquest domina entre d'altres, empreses transnacionals, partits polítics i mitjans de comunicació. La publicació explica com, a partir del fet de la creació de diners, la banca roba als ciutadans i ciutadanes de múltiples maneres.

CRISI també dedica unes quantes pàgines a explicar el que fan els moviments socials per posar en marxa una alternativa al sistema actual.

Amb tot plegat, són 20 pàgines plenes d'informació que no hem vist mai junta en els mass media, doncs va en contra de les corporacions que els controlen i financien.

D'altra banda, per simbolitzar que aquesta és una acció que tot i que l'ha fet una persona, n'hi ha moltes que estan d'acord amb la seva ètica, s'ha escollit un antifaç verd com a símbol de l'acció, dels quals veureu que algunes persones els porten posats quan reparteixen els diaris

La publicació del 17-S inclou les següents convocatòries en les que esperem comptar amb la vostra participació:

Dimecres 17 de 21:50 a 22h APAGADA MUNDIAL perquè respiri el planeta

i CASSOLADA Contra el creixement dels bancs que no és el nostre.....


Divendres 19 de setembre a les 20h davant la plaça de l'ajuntament del teu poble o ciutat

Si aquesta publicació no t 'ha deixat indiferent, comparteix la teva indignació amb la gent!!

Pots portar pancartes, cassoles, instruments, focs artificials...el que vulguis!


També pots baixar-te el manifest a la web del 17 S i fer-lo còrrer juntament amb la publicació.

Finalment si vols repartir o que et fem arribar exemplars de CRISI, ens els pots demanar a través del correu electrònic info@17-s.info o al telèfon 605823343. Hem treballat perquè se'n reparteixin molts el dia 17, però igualment els propers dies també se'n continuaran repartint.

La pàgina web de la publicació és http://www.17-s.info

(pàciencia si va a poc a poc, s'estan reben centenars de visites al mateix temps...)

How 'Bout a Free Movie? ...from Michael Moore


As you may have heard, I've decided to make my new film, "Slacker Uprising," available for free to everyone in the United States and Canada. It is the first time ever that a major feature-length film is debuting as a free download on the internet -- legally. I am doing this for two reasons:

1. Next year it will be 20 years since my first film, "Roger & Me," so I'd like to give those of you who've supported my work over the years a thank you gift in the form of a brand new movie; and

2. I hope the release and wide distribution of this new movie will help to bring out millions of young and new voters on November 4th.

"Slacker Uprising" takes place in the wake of "Fahrenheit 9/11," during the run-up to the 2004 election, as I traveled for 42 days across America, visiting 62 cities in a failed attempt to remove George W. Bush from office. My goal was to help turn out a record number of young voters and others who had never voted before. (That part was a success. Young adults voted in greater numbers than in any election since 18-year-olds were given the right to vote. And the youth vote was the only age group that John Kerry won.)

What I encountered during the tour and the filming was both inspiring and frightening, so I thought, hey, this might make for a funny and enlightening movie! Each night, thousands would show up to volunteer in the Slacker Army against Bush. This drove local Republicans nuts. In one state they tried to have me arrested. At two colleges, rich donors offered to donate more money to the college if they would ban me from campus. Nearly a half-dozen universities kept the Slacker Uprising tour off their campuses. But there was no stopping this movement. By the time we got to Florida, 16,000 people a night were showing up.

It was clear that young people were the ones who were going to save the day -- just as they are in this year's election.

On Tuesday, September 23rd, you will be able to stream, download, or burn a DVD of "Slacker Uprising," free of charge. The distribution is being organized by Robert Greenwald's Brave New Films (they're the great people behind "OUTFOXED: Rupert Murdoch's War on Journalism" and "WAL-MART: The High Cost of Low Price").

To sign up for the download of "Slacker Uprising," click here. You have my blanket permission to share the movie with your friends, to set up screenings in your communities or theaters, to show it on your campuses -- all at no charge. I encourage you to rally voters with it, to raise funds for your favorite candidates, to air it on your local cable access channels or web broadcasts. You can also click here to request a free DVD of "Slacker Uprising" for your school or university library.

As I said, this is a movie for you, my fans -- a little 97-minute digital treat that I think you'll really enjoy. I hope you'll check out SlackerUprising.com and download it a week from today, next Tuesday, September 23rd.

Thanks again for coming to my movies all these years. It's meant a lot to me. I feel very privileged and blessed, and I am honored to be in this "virtual" community with you as we try to reclaim our beloved country.


Michael Moore

P.S. The world premiere of "Slacker Uprising" will take place in one of the great slacker capitals of this country, Ann Arbor, Michigan, this Thursday at 5pm at the historic Michigan Theater. Admission is free on a first-come, first-served basis. If you're in the neighborhood, hope to see you there!

P.P.S. If you live outside the U.S. and Canada, I'm sorry that I don't own the rights to make this film available to you for free. But it will be coming to a theater, video store or television network near you soon.

P.P.P.S. If you are not part of the "downloadable" generation, I am making a low-cost DVD of "Slacker Uprising" available at Amazon, Netflix and your local stores in October.

lola levanta la cabeza



puro de riglos23.08.2008

Este verano subí la clásica Norte de Riglos, abierta por los míticos aragoneses rabada y navarro en los años 60, con sus alpargatas y sus cuerdas de cáñamo.
Subí eso si de segundo porque está "algo" por encima de mi nivel de pardillo escalador deportivo. El que iba de primera era javi, el alma de handix.
