King's Entire Dream Speech

http://www.usconstitution.net/dream.html Please revisited the entire speech. We've been force-fed the easily digestible parts now for decades.
But many of us would gladly trade MLK JR. holiday for a shot at fulfilling the yearnings in King's magnificent dream, especially now, during reminders of how New Orleans has suffered and will suffer again under our current federal leadership.

Honduras Shuns U.S. Influence

Shunning US, Honduras Joins ALBA
Honduras has become the latest Latin American country to join ALBA, the Bolivarian Alternative of the Americas. ALBA was established as a counterweight to US-led trade agreements in Latin America. Honduran officials say founding member Venezuela has offered to double its foreign aid, dwarfing assistance from US-controlled bodies like the World Bank. The move marks a sign of further rejection of US influence in Latin America. In the 1980s, Honduras was the staging ground for the US-led effort to overthrow the Sandinista government in Nicaragua. Nicaragua is also an ALBA member, along with Cuba, Bolivia and Dominica.

Challenge to Wal-Mart

Labor Groups Challenge Retail Giant Wal-Mart on Pressuring Employees to Vote Against Obama

Wal-Mart, the world's largest retailer, is being accused of violating federal election laws by urging its employees to vote against Senator Barack Obama in the November election. Last month, the Wall Street Journal revealed Wal-Mart has been warning its managers that an Obama victory would lead to unionization at Wal-Mart stores.

A coalition of prominent labor groups recently filed a complaint against Wal-Mart with the Federal Elections Commission.

State of Emergency--Peru

[from Democracynow.org]
Peru Declares State of Emergency Following Indigenous Protests

Peru’s government has declared a state of emergency in three northern provinces following nine days of protests by indigenous groups in the Amazon basin. Members of sixty-five Indian tribes are protesting a law that would make it easier for communal land to be sold to developers. The protests began when the Indians blocked an important natural gas installation and oil pipeline. Peru’s Environment Minister Antonio Brack condemned the protests.

Antonio Brack: “The indigenous groups have occupied the Corral Quemado bridge, closed the marginal motorway and threatened to shut off the oil and gas pipelines in Camisea, and the Peruvian state can’t allow this to happen.”

But indigenous activists vowed to keep fighting to protect their land.

Indigenous activist: “We conserve the environment. We are not ignorant. We are prepared. We know that foreigners want to buy our Amazon lands, because they know they are the world’s lungs. We will not allow this. We will die fighting for our rights.”

India, Others Just Say NO to US

Talks to expand the World Trade Organization have collapsed after a week of negotiations. The talks broke down in part because India and other developing nations demanded the right to protect their farming sectors against heavily subsidized imports. The US refused to accept the protections and insisted on giving US corporations greater access to markets in India, China and other nations.
