This movement is taking a new approach that is spreading across America via a project of public education and organization called democracy schools, that are teaching direct action lawmaking to challenge corporate supremacy and to create rights under law for people and the land."]

Common Sense with Dan Carlin (It's a hard recipe to master, but when passion and reason are finely blended the results can be unpredictable and intoxicating. They can also be maddening. This is part of the attraction of Dan Carlin. Original and outside-the-box thinking on current events and history to be sure, but could he also be woefully out of step with conventional wisdom? He talks fast, he's loud, he's a deep thinker who adores history and who will challenge your view of the world, while he does the same thing to himself. He's a bit of a throwback to something from the past, and yet not quite like anything else yet seen. It's a New Media/ “eye of the beholder” sort of thing. You'll have to decide for yourself. His style is not for everyone. It's not meant to be.)

Since February 5 2014, protests have swept across Bosnia and Herzegovina. The protests were started by workers from five factories in northern city of Tuzla: Dita, Polihem, Poliolhem, GUMARA and Konjuh. The factories had been privatized, bankrupted and stripped of assets, leaving the workers with large debts, no salaries, no health care and no benefits. The protests culminated on February 7, 2014 when several governmental buildings were set on fire in cities across the country, including the presidential building in Sarajevo. Under pressure of protests, four regional governments resigned. The protests were followed with mass popular assemblies, referred to as plenums, that quickly spread across the country."]
