Miss Universe Visits Guantanamo: 'A Loooot Of Fun!'
Miss Universe Visits Guantanamo: 'A Loooot Of Fun!'
The current 'Miss Universe' Dayana Mendoza (formerly Miss Venezuela) and 'Miss America' Crystal Stewart visited US troops stationed in Guantanamo Bay on March 20th, the New York Times reports. Here's Mendoza's account of the visit from her pageant blog last Friday. She says the trip "was a loooot of fun!"
This week, Guantánamo!!! It was an incredible experience...All the guys from the Army were amazing with us. We visited the Detainees camps and we saw the jails, where they shower, how the recreate themselves with movies, classes of art, books. It was very interesting. We took a ride with the Marines around the land to see the division of Gitmo and Cuba while they were informed us with a little bit of history.
The water in Guantánamo Bay is soooo beautiful! It was unbelievable, we were able to enjoy it for at least an hour. We went to the glass beach, and realized the name of it comes from the little pieces of broken glass from hundred of years ago. It is pretty to see all the colors shining with the sun. That day we met a beautiful lady named Rebeca who does wonders with the glasses from the beach. She creates jewelry with it and of course I bought a necklace from her that will remind me of Guantánamo Bay :)
I didn't want to leave, it was such a relaxing place, so calm and beautiful.

There are few prospects in the justice system so grimly awful as when the feds decide never to let go. Rebuffed in their persecutions of some target by juries, or by contrary judges, they shift ground, betray solemn agreements, dream up new stratagems to exhaust their victims, drive them into bankruptcy, despair and even suicide. They have all the money and all the time in the world.

WELCOME TO THE 1st ISSUE OF THIS MAGAZINE.
Issue No.1 contains (in this order)
Author Links, &
Issue No.2's CALL FOR WORK
EXCERPTED FROM THE ON SITE DESCRIPTION:
IMPORTANT: This magazine is for documenting poetic work in the public sphere or work given away/left in public. I do not wish to see page-based work for the most part - exceptions are possible - but not that easy to imagine
* VISUAL POETRY for me has to connect to text, readability is not necessary, but language is required (no matter how degraded).
* ARTFULNESS I appreciate careful technique, a painterly eye, work that doesn't sacrifice some kind of discipline, but, I also thrive on accidents.
* THE HAND IN THE WORK. So much work is computer-based now that I find myself liking the handmade or hand-assisted works, they're consistently more real for me.
* B/W-ish i tend in the direction of black and white and appreciate those who can use just enough color or who let the colors of the materials carry the weight. Monochromes. Sepia. A starkness that has impact.
This is a very welcome & exciting & refreshingly unusual Visual Poetry Journal, as it is interested in work made by hand and also work AS IT EXISTS IN THE WORLD.
One of the paradoxes of the Internet is that is an excellent means by which to "bring to light" works which point one back to the WORLD, that Time & War Torn & Worn site/sight/cite which all too often vanishes in Word, Page & Screen.
The disintegrating order of things, "the world as we see it is passing," calls out for not simply "being in touch," but actual touch, the real meaning of Haptic.
Works exist in the public sphere in disintegrations from the conformities of "signage," and the forms of tourism & consumerism it engenders. Yet, rather than seeing and working with the teeming dilapidation of languages which are actively generating emerging colors, lines, sounds, the eyes trained by signages remain within their "sphere of influence."
Aestheticized, these "signages" become "seen as art," because they are "already framed as art" and so one "discovers" one's immediate environment as having the same "art" qualities as "photos in magazines," ads themsemselves modeled on "art" in "art photos" and paintings. Making the circuit of one's neighborhood, one makes a circuit of "art images," happily noticing how much like other "art" which one has seen they indeed are.
To discover one lives in a a magazine/gallery world makes one feel one is indeed leading an aethetic existence.
Who knows, perhaps instead of being an "artist," one is actaully becoming an "art object" one's self, and so is begining to accrue value by the moment. Does it not seem at times that one is indeed moving along among various monuments, statues, plaques which have come to occupy the place of good old so-and-so?
Meanwhile, the dirty old world which is falling apart all around one, and in that falling apart is emerging each instant as a part of something other than it just was--that dirty ceaselessly teeming old world is going unseen, even though its particles begin to dirty the surfaces of the monuments and statues.
To me, what makes Repugno so exciting and challenging to go ever farther into these particles that are a part of and not apart from one's existence, continually touching one with a call to touch back and with it in response, in collaboartion--
is that it is aware of and interested in the continually generative emergence of distintegrations, the disintegrations into emergences, of negentropy and working with negentropy in collaboration.
To me, a very happy event! And my deep Thanks!--db Chirot

Lift Travel Restrictions on Palestinian Journalist
To: Israeli and Palestinian Authorities
Palestinian journalist Khalid Amayreh, who lives in the West Bank, has been invited to attend a media conference in Germany. As required, he set about to request all of the necessary travel documents, including a visa that needs to be granted from the German representative office in Ramallah. After routine questioning regarding his political affiliations, it was not only determined that he was not a member of any party, nor formally associated with any organisation, but it was clear that he had never been arrested or detained by Israeli authorities. Mr Amayreh was granted an entry visa to Germany. However, the Israeli military authorities have refused to give him a permit to leave the West Bank. No Palestinian can travel abroad without receiving such a permit beforehand, otherwise he or she would be turned back once arriving at the Israeli-controlled border terminal at the Allenby Bridge.

The Ordeal of Mohammed Omer
We are used to hearing about the hazards, often fatal, of being a journalist these days. Everyone is familiar with accounts of courageous Russian journalists who have been assassinated and of course with stories of war correspondents who have been killed or gravely wounded in the course of reporting from Iraq and Afghanistan. But what about the dangers of just being a Palestinian journalist who is simply trying to return to his own hometown in Gaza after being abroad?
Consider the case of a twenty-four-year-old reporter named Mohammed Omer.
Some background first: For the past six years Mohammed has been covering and reporting on the situation in Gaza and has published his articles in various periodicals in Europe, for the Inter Press Service News Agency and The Washington Report on Middle East Affairs. His articles have received much recognition and several awards, including, most recently, the prestigious Martha Gellhorn Prize for Journalism, which was presented to Mohammed in a special ceremony in London in June, 2008 – about which more in a moment.
Mohammed and his family, like many Palestinians, have suffered greatly because of the circumstances under which they live in Gaza. He himself was nearly killed by a bulldozer in the course of photographing the demolition of a neighbor's house and one of his brothers did lose his life as a teenager as a result of being shot by Israel Defense Forces on his way home from school. Another brother was shot in the leg, which had to be amputated. Mohammed's father has spent eleven years in Israeli prisons where torture, as is well known, is common. And in March, 2003, Mohammed returned to his home after school to find that he had it been demolished by an Israeli bulldozer. All his family's possessions – books, photographs, all his own notebooks, everything – were obliterated, and he and his family suddenly found themselves homeless.
It is not an unusual family story for people living in Gaza; on the contrary, one hears accounts like this all the time from the lips of Palestinians.
Now fast-forward to June, 2008. Mohammed has recently received word that he is to be a co-recipient of the Martha Gellhorn Prize. For this, he must get to London, but, as you know, it is not easy for any Gazan to leave the prison that Gaza has become under the unrelenting Israeli siege. Only after strenuous diplomatic efforts over several weeks by Dutch officials and a prize-winning Australian journalist living in England was it possible for Mohammed to leave Gaza to receive his award. While in Europe, Mohammed also spoke in Sweden, the Netherlands and Greece about his work, in addition to making a very moving acceptance speech in London during the ceremonies for the Gellhorn Prize.Continue reading at the link
Mohammed Omer - Truth and Consequences Under the Israeli Occupation
Posted: 01 Aug 2008 05:51 PM CDT
From The Nation
I am a Palestinian journalist from Gaza. At the age of 17, I armed myself with a camera and a pen, committed to report accurately on events in Gaza. I have filed reports as Israeli fighter jets bombed Gaza City. I have interviewed mothers as they watched their children die in hospitals unequipped to serve them because of Israel's embargo. I have been recognized for my reporting, even in the United States and United Kingdom, where I have won two international awards. I have also been beaten and tortured by Israeli soldiers.
This summer, at age 24, I was honored to learn that I had become the youngest journalist to receive the Martha Gellhorn Prize for Journalism, named for the famed American war reporter and awarded to journalists who counter propaganda with the truth. Although Israel has sealed Gaza's 1.5 million Palestinians in what many now call the world's largest open-air prison, Dutch MP Hans Van Baalen lobbied the Israeli government to let me leave Gaza to receive my award in person. Upon my return from London, I was surrounded by Israeli security officers. I was stripped naked at gunpoint, interrogated, kicked and beaten for more than four hours. At one point I fainted and then awakened to fingernails gouging at the flesh beneath my eyes. An officer crushed my neck beneath his boot and pressed my chest into the floor. Others took turns kicking and pinching me, laughing all the while. They dragged me by my feet, sweeping my head through my own vomit. I lost consciousness. I was told later that they transferred me to a hospital only when they thought I might die.
Today, I have difficulty breathing. I have abrasions and scratches on my chest and neck. My hands don't function well; typing is difficult. My doctor informed me that due to nerve damage from one kick, I may be unable to father children and will need to have an operation.
Israeli attacks on journalists are not new; nor are they rare. In April, Reuters cameraman Fadel Shana was killed by fire from an Israeli tank. He was in a car, clearly marked as press. According to Amnesty International, "Fadel Shana appears to have been killed deliberately although he was a civilian taking no part in attacks on Israel's forces."
Reporters Without Borders has condemned the Israeli military's widespread "abusive behavior" of Palestinian journalists. And the Committee to Protect Journalists reports that journalists covering Israeli military actions in the West Bank and Gaza "contend with perennial abuses at the hands of Israeli forces." In 2007 alone, Israeli soldiers shot photographers from Agence France-Presse, Al-Ayyam newspaper and Al-Aqsa TV. The television cameraman, Imad Ghanem, fell to the ground when wounded. Israeli forces then shot him twice more in the legs. Both of his legs have been amputated.
Could it be that despite their tanks, fighter planes and nuclear arsenal, Israel is threatened by our cameras and computers, which give the world access to images and information about their military occupation of Palestinians? Indeed, this month a Palestinian girl filmed an Israeli soldier shooting a blindfolded Palestinian at point blank range with a rubber bullet. The video aired widely, on CNN, NBC News and the BBC, among other media outlets.
Although Palestinians face this violence daily, the images and our stories rarely travel beyond our borders. Israel seems intent on hiding its oppression of Palestinians under its rule–including its dual system of laws, one giving civil, political and social rights to Israelis, and the other denying those rights to Palestinians living under occupation. This system allows Jewish settlers in the West Bank to enjoy freedom of movement and access to healthcare and education, while Palestinian children in Gaza die of curable illnesses because hospitals have run out of medicine.
Martha Gellhorn brought to light atrocities committed in World War II and in the Vietnam War. In her tradition, I remain committed to accurate reporting from Gaza today. For this I may suffer lifelong consequences. But I hold on to the hope that Americans–as well as journalists worldwide–will impress upon Israel the need to respect the rights of reporters. Freedom of speech and a free press are hallmarks of any democracy. I am proud to call myself a Palestinian and a journalist. The might of the Israeli military will not silence my pen or darken my camera lens.

'SS Liberty' Sails to Challenge Israel
The "SS Liberty" is one of two ships -- along with "SS Free Gaza" -- that will be carrying an international group opposed to Israel's blockade of Gaza. Israel imposed the blockade just over a year ago.
Karin Pally, a spokeswoman in Los Angeles for the group Free Gaza Movement, said the ship was named in honor of 34 Sailors and Marines killed in the attack and to help bring the Gaza issue home to Americans.
Jim Ennes, an officer aboard the original Liberty and author of the book Assault on the Liberty said he was invited to take part in the protest sailing to Gaza but was not able to make it.
Until contacted by Military.com for comment, Ennes was unaware that organizers had named one of the ships after the Liberty, but he said he is "absolutely" pleased with the move and wishes he could be there.
Israel attacked the Liberty on June 8, 1967, later saying they thought it was an Egyptian vessel -- though survivors and others have long said the Israeli pilots and sailors knew exactly who they targeted.
The U.S. Navy began telling families of the American dead that the attack was accidental even before it convened an official board of inquiry, which about 10 days later delivered that same finding, according to Navy documents.
Six years ago the legal affairs adviser to the board, retired Capt. Ward Boston, broke his silence to say the investigation was a sham, and that the final version was altered to exonerate the Israelis. Boston died in June.
Pally said the two ships will include about 40 passangers from 16 countries, including Israel and the United States.
"Everyone is committed to non-violence," she said of the participants. "The Free Gaza Movement has arranged with a third party security expert to completely secure and search the boats before they leave Cyprus to make sure there are no weapons or anything dangerous aboard."
The larger of the two ships, the SS Free Gaza, will be equipped with a Web cam and will be posting streaming video to their Web site -- www.freegaza.org -- during the voyage, Pally said.

&, as a kind of "companion piece", Otoliths Books has just published From the Annual Records of the Cloud Appreciation Society, a chapbook "edited" by Márton Koppány & Nico Vassilakis. It's available in hardcopy at The Otoliths Storefront, & as a free downloadable pdf at the Otoliths Books Google site.
Probably only the fabled Prieure du Sion has guarded its secrets as closely as The Cloud Appreciation Society. Now some of its members, tired of the secrecy, have decided to open their texts and visions to the world. In this slim volume, edited by Márton Koppány and Nico Vassilakis, we see for the first time what has previously been hidden in the clouds.

An Online Hoax Becomes a Source About a Suspect
By NOAM COHEN
A fake Web site became a prime source of information for journalists around the world after the arrest of Radovan Karadzic, the Bosnian Serb leader.
Lugar: Centro Cultural de España
Dirección: Providencia 927 (Metro Salvador), Santiago, Chile - Fono: (02) 795 97 00
Fecha: Lunes 4 de agosto - 19:00 horas
Inscripciones e información: email@example.com
De un tiempo a esta parte, han surgido iniciativas y proyectos que plantean la interdisciplinariedad como punto de partida, demostrando una forma de actuar muy coherente con temas como el pluralismo cultural, la democracia cultural, la globalización. Se trata de prácticas culturales que a partir de una disciplina se echa mano de otra, o se complementa o enriquece con una distinta (puede ser del sector artístico o a veces otra aparentemente muy lejana) para lograr fines diversos, pero socioculturales al fin y al cabo, que van configurando modos específicos de pensar, hacer y vivir la cultura.
Esta corriente de interdisciplina se refiere a la interacción de disciplinas diferentes, en el sentido que las modalidades de una sirven para el objeto de la otra y son incorporadas por esta última, o los contenidos de ambas se nutren entre sí. Podemos determinar que estamos hablando de un modo de ver y de entender la cultura, y la sociedad.
Por otro lado, es materia de reflexión los efectos que a nivel cultural consigue un sistema pedagógico basado en el desarrollo humano, que busca estimular paralelamente el intelecto, la emoción y la voluntad, donde la transmisión de "lo cultural y lo artístico" es clave en la formación de los niños y jóvenes: el sistema Waldorf. Considerado "alternativo", es un método integral que forma sujetos culturales o consumidores culturales distintos a los que no provienen de ese mundo escolar.
Podemos decir que en general los planes que apuntan a una "mezcla" o "integralidad" exige que una de las partes debe hacer algunos esfuerzos extras por entender los diferentes códigos o metodologías que manejan otros universos. Sin embargo, si observamos a las nuevas generaciones, esa exigencia constituye una forma de pensamiento horizontal que es una capacidad que niños y jóvenes están desarrollando hoy día, gracias al estímulo de las tecnologías y los medios de comunicación. Esta afirmación lleva a preguntarnos si ésa es la vía por la que debe orientarse el escenario cultural en el futuro. Por lo pronto debemos abrir un espacio para hablar de este tema y sobre lo necesario de crear instancias tanto de encuentro y de difusión de proyectos e iniciativas, como de creación, producción y encuentro de diversas disciplinas.

The New Extreme Experimental American Poetry & Arts--Necessity is the Motherfucker of Invention
--Pier Paulo Pasolini
To degenerate as a result of the use of torture, & by its concealment & deception question human dignity & individual rights--
In the first lines of his Introduction to Torture: Cancer of Democracy France and Algeria 1954-62, Pierre Vidal-Naquet asks "Can a great nation, liberal by tradition, allows its institutions, its army, and its system of justice to degenerate over the span of a few years as a result of the use of torture, and by its concealment and deception of such a vital issue call the whole Western concept of human dignity and the rights of the individual into question?"
To fit in with the change of events, words, too, had to change
In The Peloponnesian War, Book 3, Thucydides states:
"To fit in with the change of events, words, too, had to change. What used to be thought of as a thoughtless act of aggression was now regarded as the courage one would expect to find in a party member; to think of the future and wait was merely another way of saying one was a coward, any idea of moderation was just an attempt to disguise one's unmanly character; ability to understand a question from all sides meant one was totally unfitted for action; frenzied violence came to be considered an attribute of a real man. "
Necessity is the Mother of Invention
These entries are ongoing found materials with which one works on various projects. They are an Anarkeyology of Site/Sight/Cites in which, by relinking the Military & Art meanings of "avant-garde," are found different ways of investigating separations, Walls, silences, distranslations, forgeries, torture, "Newspeak," censorship and propaganda as elements common to both war and writing/art historically & in the USA & Globally today.
The finding of these materials and the questions they open are, I find, "necessary," as the Formal separations of the American "avant-gardes" from the Military & external/ internal imperialist realities that are among the "symptoms . . . in language" that Pasolini notes "we (have) to go on."
Separations in, of, and by language are "necessary" to Vidal-Naquet's "concealment " of "torture, cancer of democracy," whose "deceptions" erect barriers, Walls, prisons, "Security," Surveillance between not only the torturers and the tortured, Occupiers and the Occupied, but between actions and words, so that a culture conceals itself from itself.
Materials & questions that are "necessary" to examine separations, concealments, deceptions that are "necessary"--
and are Hidden in Plain Site/Sight/Cite
"Necessary"--to find among the "fictional" and the "factual," among street debris and the debris of Poetry, Writing & Arts, Street & Protest Arts and Actions, News Reports, Torture Documents , Prisons . . . the" failure to communicate" that haunts the Prison //Security//Surveillance System of Cool Hand Luke's"Boss Keane's Ditch" and daily covering more of the world. These interconnections and relinkings, the symptoms in language, is a work found by what I call "Necessity, the Motherfucker of Invention."
In The Moro Affair, Leonardo Sciascia writes:
"Indeed when the truth which had been confined to literature emerged harsh and tragic within the context of everyday life, and could no longer be ignored, it seemed as if it were a product of literature."
This "truth" " is something so "obvious"that it becomes treated as a separation, a "fiction," rather than a "real, true fact."
To work with the "Hidden in Plain Site/Sight/Cite" can in this way be considered a "fiction," compared to the "reality" of a Formal Separation which is "immune to these things."
Sciascia notes the "Hidden in Plain Site/Sight/Cite" in using an expression from Poe's "The Purloined Letter:"
"(W)hat we called the invisibility of the obvious . . . (from Poe's Dupin) . . others have called over-obviousness . . . an obviousness linked to other obviousnesses , all of them conforming to a . . . concept of the clandestine."
This "invisibility" is separated from the "real, true fact," which the account and appearances of events create as the version that is "believed" to have occurred.
Sciascia quotes a dictionary:
"One says: a real true fact. and such like. Real in this case seems to reinforce true, not simply as pleonasm but thus: a real true fact hasn't simply occurred but it has occurred as it is told, as it appeared, as it is believed . . . "
The separation of "what is told, as it appeared, as it is believed" from what is "the invisibility of the obvious" allows for the concealment and deception Vidal-Naquet writes of.
The entries here may be read as the raw materials of
as an examination of these separations, symptons in language, and finding ways to link them in the term common to the military & ar t"avant- garde" in Necessity the Motherfucker of Invention's "New Extreme Experimental American Poetry& Arts.

TAKE ACTION--HELP GAZA
Israeli forces ended their offensive against Hamas in Gaza on Saturday, 17 January, following the declaration of ceasefires by Hamas and Israel.
Highlighted below are some of the main buildings identified as destroyed or damaged in Gaza City and the surrounding area as of 16 January, when this latest satellite image was taken.
The image, taken for Unosat at the United Nations Institute for Training and Research, has helped researchers identify at least 566 destroyed or damaged buildings.
The map below shows the main areas attacked in the three weeks of violence.
Palestinian medical sources say more than 1,010 Palestinians were killed in the violence, which began on 27 December 2008. Israel says 13 Israelis died, including 10 soldiers in the campaign and three civilians killed as a result of rocket fire from Gaza.
NO MORE BLANK CHECK FOR ISRAEL! Plz Sign..
Urgent action by the UN General Assembly is warranted and possible.
Israeli impunity must be ended by the collective action of the world community - Plz sign

Waiting for the Guards--extreme performance artist troupe enacts interrogationscenes for real
Waiting for the Guards highlights interrogation techniques used in the 'war on terror'. The film was made using members of the extreme performance artist troupe who enacted the interrogation scenes for real. The film demonstrates the so called Stress Position and is the first in a series of films focusing on different 'enhanced interrogation' techniques. For now the film is an exclusive for the web, before a theatrical release in independent UK cinemas in early 2008. We believe that the film is a great introduction to the unsubscribe movement, so we ask you to get the movie out there, in any way you can. The more people who will see it, the more people will be compelled to unsubscribe.
