21 December, 2011 – Manning Manhandled * Indefinite Detention +

“Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts
to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against
injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and
crossing each other from a million different centers
of energy and daring, those ripples build a current
which can sweep down the mightiest walls
of oppression and resistance.”

Robert F. Kennedy
Capetown, June 6th 1966

Editor’s Notes: There is only one earth-sun cycle left for the completion of my 13+ year commitment to report on news in the post Cassini flyby era. Next winter solstice I plan to re-evaluate most everything, especially life’s survival in the 21st Century. Until then I remain half optimistic for some amazing turnaround from the direction we are now headed. Take note for the following critical breaking news articles and link to “Almost Gone”, the video to a recent song by Graham Nash and James Raymond in support of Bradley Manning. I hope by the next issue I will have more on the campaigns of Mike Gravel – and – Being a protester is good, but being a citizen demanding one’s freedom in our participating in one’s own governance (according to principles of the US Constitution is better. There seemed to be little reporting on the Occupy Building 7 action of 19, 20 November, 2011. The event happened, photos are posted here at Blog Out Loud, but I could find little additional coverage. If you have more information please send. Thanks to all, especially those supporting whistle-blowers, independent news, awareness, and integrity.

Citizens 9/11 Commission
This is a new initiative that uses the prevailing ballot

pursue justice regarding the events of September 11.

An Actionable Plan for 9/11 Truth and Justice

“When our days become dreary with low-hovering clouds
of despair, and when our nights become darker than a
thousand midnights, let us remember that there is a
creative force in this universe, working to pull down
the gigantic mountains of evil, a power that is able
to make a way out of no way and transform dark
yesterdays into bright tomorrows. Let us realize
the arc of the moral universe is long
but it bends toward justice.”

– Martin Luther King, Jr.

About FlybyNews

Flyby News (FN) came out of the campaign to stop or expose the high risk NASA Cassini (plutonium) Earth flyby. FN's first campaign at the turn of the millennium was to prevent the expansion of the arms race and US domination of the planet with space-based weapons. Yet the theft of democracy in the US 2000 election, the Supreme Court appointment of George W. Bush as US President, and the events of September 11, 2001, led to the termination of the 1972 Ballistic Missile Treaty, along with many other actions of crimes against humanity and civil freedom. The exploitation and cover-up of September 11, 2001 led to illegal, deceptive wars, which has accelerated climate change, and the downfall of financial and social justice. Flyby News is educational and nonviolent in focus, and has supported critical campaigns for a healthy environment, human rights, justice, peace, and nonviolence, since the launching of NASA's Cassini space probe in 1997.
