Was the act of Pussy Riot cynical? There are two kinds of cynicism: the bitter cynicism of the oppressed which unmasks the hypocrisy of those in power, and the cynicism of the oppressors themselves who openly violate their own proclaimed principles. The cynicism of Pussy Riot is of the first kind, while the cynicism of those in power — why not call their authoritarian brutality a Prick Riot — is of the much more ominous second kind.

At this point, the focus is understandably on the immediate consequences of the still ongoing Great Drought: dying crops, shrunken harvests, and rising food prices. But keep an eye out for the social and political effects that undoubtedly won’t begin to show up here or globally until later this year or 2013. Better than any academic study, these will offer us a hint of what we can expect in the coming decades from a hunger-games world of rising temperatures, persistent droughts, recurring food shortages, and billions of famished, desperate people.

From http://www.witness.org | WITNESS uses video to open the eyes of the world to human rights violations.
This five-part “How to Film Protests” series incorporates the best practices WITNESS has developed with over 300 partners in 80 countries who are using video for human rights documentation and to create lasting change.
From raw documentation of human rights violations in Syria to the Occupy protests and the range of police abuse and misconduct therein, citizen video is an increasingly powerful tool for human rights documentation.
Now more than ever we need to ensure that the footage that we capture as activists incorporates essential information like the exact date, time and location so it may best be used by the media, as evidence, and for advocacy. Additionally, we need to pay special attention to the unique safety and security risks that we face as filmmakers and activists, as well as risks to those we capture in our footage.
— How-to Film Safely and Effectively for Human Rights —
This video series is broken into small, two-minute videos, and focuses on how to best prepare to film, choose and test your equipment, get good footage, film as part of a team and conduct interviews.
Whether you’re filming the May 1st Occupy Wall Street protests and events or just want to be prepared to best use your camera phone if you are in the wrong place at the right time, watch these how-to videos to be best prepared to capture good footage that will be engaging, informative and can be used for potential advocacy and evidentiary use.
We are excited to share these tips in video and text. Let us know how they are useful for you, and what you would add to make them even better by adding comments to the videos or at http://blog.witness.org

Bill McKibben’s recent Rolling Stone article, “Global Warming’s Terrible New Math,” should give anyone—whether an American or a citizen of any other country—pause. Among the many scary statements he makes are these:

The US, once considered by the Syrian opposition as a natural friend in its fight for genuine demand of freedom and democracy against a repressive regime having deep acrimony with the West, is now being suspected with resentment for not providing sufficient assistance except empty verbal encouragement to the rebels.
With the onset of Arab Spring in Syria clamouring for democracy and democratic institutions in the region, the nearly 17 month old uprising against President Assad is now turned into an all-out conflict with no end in sight.
