Nabeel Rajab Jailed 66


Cameron’s favourite dictatorship, Bahrain, has jailed human rights activist Nabeel Rajab for three months for tweeting that pro-regime demonstrators were being paid. Total silence from western governments. Meanwhile two pro-democracy demonstrators have been shot dead in Saudi Arabia. More total silence from western governments. At the same time, those governments want us to believe that the massive arms shipments being sent by Saudi Arabia to promote a Syrian civil war are in support of democracy. Even the mianstream media appear to have worked out there is a problem with this narrative.

    “Stockton is filing for protection from its creditors under Chapter 9 of the US bankruptcy code. In essence, it is insisting that retired workers—whose pension and health care benefits were contractual promises for decades of labor—be treated as creditors who have lost out on an investment. The unfunded liability for retiree health care benefits is reportedly $417 million.”

    Where once the Miwok Indians fished and navigated the waters, this is an aspect of Stockton C21.

    ‘Downtown revitalization
    Beginning in the late 1990s under the mayorship of Gary Podesto, Stockton has experienced some revitalization.
    .
    Newly built or renovated buildings include the Bob Hope Theater, Regal City Centre Cinemas and IMAX, San Joaquin RTD Downtown Transit Center, Lexington Plaza Waterfront Hotel, Hotel Stockton, Stockton Arena, San Joaquin County Administration Building, and the Stockton Ballpark.
    .
    The “sunken parking lot” in front of the Hotel Stockton was transformed in the late 1990s into a public space named “Dean DeCarli Waterfront Square.” The area is designed to provide for many different settings including a sunken plaza, shade structure, numerous trees and planters, stadia seating, bench seating, viewing platforms, a weir at the west end, and a cascading waterfall at the east end. DeCarli Square is now a popular location hosting music, art and religious events, festivals, Farmers Markets and social gatherings.
    .
    A new Downtown Marina and adjacent Joan Darah Promenade were added along the South Shore of the Stockton Deep Water Channel during 2009. Various public art projects were also installed throughout the area (see Stockton’s public art section).
    .
    Other projects under consideration by the city council or under consideration as of January, 2009 include South Shore housing, the revitalization of the Robert J. Cabral Train Station neighborhood, bridges across the Stockton Deep Water Channel, and a new San Joaquin County Court House.’
    .
    Hugely affected by the sub prime crash of 2007, 20% of the 300,000 are now unemnployed and one in thirty homes have been foreclosed upon.

    The motto – Stockton – The All America City. Quite so. And sad too.

    Mary, I’ve posted ‘They came in the morning’ to my Facebook page. This wall around Bethlehem is as segregatory as the Berlin Wall.
