Israel collaborates with right-wing regimes worldwide, sharing repressive strategies and tools.

Our movements against racism and for freedom can only defeat this globalized repression by joining forces. #UnitedAgainstRacism

In a statement endorsing IAW 2020, U.S. civil rights leader Angela Davis said that, for people struggling against racism and for freedom, Palestinians serve as “an inspiration because they have endured and remained steadfast for so long, refusing to give up and accept permanent subjugation and injustice.”

With Israel’s far-right regime partnering with authoritarian and racist regimes worldwide, and supplying them with “field-tested”, deadly military and security tools, groups fighting racism are working more urgently than ever to join together struggles for freedom, justice, equality and dignity, for Palestinians and people resisting repression worldwide.

Civil rights leader Angela Davis says: “With our oppressors uniting, it’s becoming increasingly clear that all our struggles for freedom are interconnected & that no one will be free until we are all free.”

Through IAW 2020 activities online, groups fighting all forms of racism are affirming that apartheid and racism were unacceptable in South Africa, are unacceptable in Palestine today, and are unacceptable anywhere.

Join our first IAW webinar this Thursday, featuring South African MP chief Mandla Mandela and afrofeminist activist Desirée Bela-Lobedde. We will share more information on additional IAW webinars soon.

In solidarity,

Palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC)

The Sterling was a very cool kit car that was streets ahead of most of the others that were around during the kit car era. Such pretty things…

The voluptuous and sensually sexy American Motors AMX/2.

It is truly a crying shame that this car was never produced for folks to buy. I mean, it’s not only gorgeous, but it’s also a pretty darned sophisticated piece for its day. Much better, even, than the original AMX, which was a pretty nifty car in its own right.

Was sad when American Motors became the first of the modern lot to go under. Their Javelins did quite well in Trans Am racing with Mark Donohue and company at the helm.

US General Warns of ‘Sinister Force’ Scouting Earth (Rare Audio)

It’s [redacted].
Mar 14, 2020

General Douglas MacArthur was an American war hero and one of the most popular armed service members of the 1940s and 50s. But what few know about him is his strong interest in the UFO phenomenon, so much so that he warned of “sinister forces” beyond Earth three different times publicly in the last 15 years of his life. Two of these warnings were given in speeches — the rarely heard audio is presented in this video. So, what do you think? Was MacArthur’s warning that UFOs were scouting Earth for future invasion just paranoia? Or could it have been a driver of early efforts to militarize space? Let us know in the comments.

New Footage of a Tasmanian tiger has been discovered. Three researchers from the Tasmanian Tiger Archives Facebook group, www.facebook.com/groups/Tasma… closely with the staff of the State Library and Archive Service have discovered previously unseen footage of the Tasmanian tiger at Beaumaris zoo.

This historical discovery was made on the 4th March 2020. The researchers are Gareth Linnard, Branden Holmes and Mike Williams. The footage was possibly filmed between 1933-36, by a member of the Bester? family. 9.5 mm silent black and white running time 69 seconds in total. 7 seconds of the Tasmanian tiger.

This sequence adds to the previously known five films from Beaumaris zoo. And two films from London zoo.

The Tasmanian Tiger Archives group is seeking historical stills/film/witness reports and can be contacted on Facebook or 0416-303-371

Nice, hot Bimmers.

 

My readers make me want to snuff it. Not a single one of you has even clicked a link to help, let alone given any.

Maybe I should stop posting if none of you give a flying f anyway.

Grand Funk Railroad – I’m Your Captain (Live 1971) This video was shown at Shea Stadium the entire last year before Shea closed. This July 9th 1971 concert still holds the ticket sales record, breaking the record set by The Beatles.

So beautiful! Classic!

The video is cut off, but that’s ok… it’s just so classic a tune and legendary a band that I can forgive them.
