"Tech site Pando Daily has been providing amazing coverage of the Department of Justice antitrust invesigation and subsequent class action lawsuits over wage-fixing amongst Silicon Valley tech companies and animation studios. Described as the largest wage-fixing cartel in American history, it’s the story of how some of the most powerful figures in tech and entertainment, including Apple’s Steve Jobs, Lucasfilm’s George Lucas, Pixar’s Ed Catmull, and Google’s Eric Schmidt, conspired to illegally manipulate and suppress the wages of their employees.


In Pando’s most recent piece by Mark Ames, the discussion turns to the animation studios, which have not been covered as heavily throughout the scandal as some of the tech companies like Google, Intel, and Apple.

The major point that Ames makes is that the illegal wage-fixing extended far beyond the primary players, Pixar and Lucasfilm. Through the deposition testimonies of George Lucas and Pixar president/co-founder Ed Catmull, there is evidence that other studios like Walt Disney Animation Studios and DreamWorks/PDI participated in the illegal activities to keep their employees’ wages unnaturally low. The Walt Disney Company has emerged as a central figure in the scandal, especially now that they own both Pixar and Lucasfilm, and it should come as no surprise that as they worked to pay their employees less, their stock prices and profits shot to all-time highs.”

Ali Abunimah mentioned Maldives cutting of trade ties with Israel on Al-Jazeera and I'm so happy that we got mentioned for something we can actually be proud of! (the last few times, it was for stupid, completely misrepresented political shit) I'm so glad we can do even this little much for Palestinians through our shitty government. Last elected government had our foreign minister meeting and having dinner with fucking Avigdor Lieberman and this is seriously such a great improvement~

The UK and many EU countries are strident opponents of commercial whale hunting. The EU does not allow its Member States to trade in whale products and is legally required to protect whales and dolphins. BUT WHAT DOES THAT MEAN IN REALITY?

IS THE EU DOING ENOUGH TO STOP WHALING WHEN THE EU IS ALLOWING SHIPS CARRYING WHALE MEAT AND PRODUCTS TO DOCK AT THEIR PORTS?
Icelandic and Norwegian whalers have shipped and transferred whale products through Southampton, Rotterdam and Hamburg among others. These ports accept money in exchange.
BY ALLOWING THESE SHIPMENTS TO PASS THROUGH ITS PORTS THE EU IS HELPING  THE TRADE IN WHALE PRODUCTS AND SUPPORTING COMMERCIAL WHALING. AND BY ACCEPTING PORT FEES FROM SHIPPERS, EU COUNTRIES ARE PROFITING FROM HUNTING!
Shipping whale meat across the globe without stopping at EU ports is very expensive for the whalers. Transporting it by air is even more costly. If we can close off EU ports to whale cargo we can hit the whalers in the pocket and will be another step closer to stopping whaling forever. Help us stop whaling.

So, Dremer, have there been enough civilian deaths and destruction for us to ask if this is starting to look like a massacre? 600+ Palestinian civilians dead, Israeli snipers targeting unarmed civilians, 50 mosques targeted, hospitals overflowing, journalists missing…what do you call this? #BusinessInsider #AskDremer

The ethnic cleansing of Palestine is at full throttle with the Israeli army committing massacre after massacre in Gaza and, with Israel also having wiped Palestine off the map long ago there’s no sign of the word in any modern-day atlas, yet we’re met with the answer “Are you serious?”

John Middleton, a Missouri prisoner killed by lethal injection on Wednesday.

Middleton was convicted of three murders despite doubts over his guilt and concerns he may have been mentally ill. Attorneys for Middleton said new evidence showed that one of the murders took place when he was actually 40 miles away, in a jail in Iowa.

Earlier this week, a federal judge stayed Middleton’s execution, saying he met the standard for mental incapacity “showing that he is incompetent to be executed.” But an appeals court overturned the stay.
