—The anger is palpable across the Mississippi Delta. As the Deepwater Horizon oil geyser, almost a mile underwater, continues unabated,spapers in Toronto, Edmonton, Calgary, and Winnipeg are reporting this morning that, “A fake lake being built inside the media centre for the upcoming G8 and G20 summits should be called ‘Harper’s Folly’, says the Council of Canadians. The protest group has formally applied to the Geographical Names Board of Canada to make the lake name official.” “The fake lake, complete with docks, Muskoka chairs, canoes, and a giant television screen which will show the sights and sounds of cottage country, is part of a $1.9-million ‘Canadian Corridor’ project being built inside the Direct Media Centre in Toronto,      ______________________________________________________________________________

    Israel Rejects Call for International Probe into Attack on Gaza Flotilla

    While international condemnation of Israel continues, inside Israel the mood is quite different. An Israeli parliamentary panel recommended today that the Knesset revoke the privileges of Israeli Arab lawmaker Hanin Zoabi for participating in last week’s Gaza-bound aid flotilla. Right-wing demonstrators targeted a peace protest in Tel Aviv Saturday and reportedly attacked veteran Israeli activist, the eighty-six-year-old Uri Avnery. For more on the fallout of the flotilla attack and the reactions inside Israel, I’m joined now from Jaffa by Max Blumenthal. [includes rush transcript]

    BP Oil Spill Threatens Future of Indigenous Communities in Louisiana

    During our recent trip to southern Louisiana, we visited Grand Bayou, a village accessible only by boat, that feels they are on the brink of extinction. The indigenous Atakapa-Ishak people in this coastal Louisiana village have relied on the land and water around them to survive for generations. They live mostly off the oysters, shrimp and fish they draw from the marshes. [includes rush transcript]

    The Government Is Drowning Us All”. Uri Avnery attacked by rightist thugs.
    A disaster was averted yesterday (June 5) at Tel-Aviv’s Museum Square, when rightists threw a smoke grenade into the middle of the protest rally, obviously hoping for a panic to break out and cause the protesters to trample on each other. But the demonstrators remained calm, nobody started to run and just a small space in the middle of the crowd remained empty. The speaker did not stop talking even when the cloud of smoke reached the stage. The audience included many children.
    Half an hour later, a dozen rightist thugs attacked Gush Shalom’s 86 year old Uri Avnery, when he was on his way from the rally in the company of his wife, Rachel, Adam Keller and his wife Beate Zilversmidt. Avnery had just entered a taxi, when a dozen rightist thugs attacked him and tried to drag him out of the car. At the critical moment, the police arrived and made it possible for the car to leave. Gush spokesman Adam Keller said: “These cowards did not dare to attack us when we were many, but they were heroes when they caught Avnery alone.”
