Auntie Dave: Daily Bleed 3/16/09
When I die let the black rag fly raven falling from the sky...
For out of black soul's night have stirred dawn's cold gleam, morning's singing bird.
NICOLAS STORCH With Thomas Muntzer, a leader of the Peasant Wars, to whom the angel Gabriel promised full religious communism..
EVERYTHING YOU DO IS RIGHT DAY.
1521 - Nicolas Storch, medieval anarchist communist, lives.
1811 -- England: Luddites attack machines designed to replace them.
1892 - César Vallejo, Peruvian hermetic poet, communist, lives, Santiago de Chuco. A major voice of social change in Latin-American literature. Of mixed blood, his early work reflects firsthand experience of hunger, poverty, & injustices suffered by the Indians. Daily Bleed Saint 2002-2003
1904 - James Joyce, 22, awarded a bronze medal in a Dublin singing contest, promptly throws it into a river.
1918 - US: "Regeneracion" publishes a proclamation, "With the anarchists of the world & the workers in general." The authors, Librado Rivera & Ricardo Flores Magon, argue that the social revolution approaches & that all anarchists must infuse it with their energies & possibilities. This text gets the paper seized in the land of the free, & this is its last published appearance in the US. http://flag.blackened.net/revolt/mexico/history.html
1921 - Bolsheviks stage the final bloody assault on rebellious Kronstadt sailors. Izvestia n°14 of the Provisional Revolutionary Committee of the Sailors, Soldier & Workers of Kronstadt, having tossed off the yoke of party rule, notes its refusal to surrender.
1968 - Vietnam: My Lai Massacre, American soldiers liberate civilians.
Carrying on the tradition of 'teaching' American values to the godless & the communist, Captain Medina leads a 'victorious' attack on the village of Xom Lang, near My Lai in South Vietnam.
While the upper brass circles overhead in helicopters, Charlie Company enters the hamlet of My Lai 4 & methodically & ruthlessly murders an estimated 347 civilians over an 8-hour period.
Most are women, children & old men. Some are slain by bullets fired into their houses, others herded into small groups & mowed down, & still more die when they are hurled into a ditch & sprayed with automatic rifle fire.
The Army will first try to cover it up & the US media will refuse to report it. Later they will portray it as an aberration, one bad guy (Calley), one good guy (who stops it). Calley is later convicted, sent to his room for being a bad boy, then released.
1988 -- Massacre of Kurds with mustard & nerve gases, Halabja, Iraq. US & European weapons & chemical companies are supplying Iraq with the ok of the US.
1998 -- In response to reported Serbian massacres in Drenica, in the ethnically Albanian province of Kosovo, 12,000 women, carrying loaves of bread, attempt to march 50 km to Drenica from the capital of Prishtina. They are turned back by police.
2001 -- World Premiere of Anton Coppola's opera, "Sacco & Vanzetti," Tampa Opera (16-18, 2001). Based on music he wrote for a film his nephew Francis Ford Coppola had planned to make but never did.
2003 -- US: Protests continue across the nation against Beloved & Respected Comrade Lord George Bush's God-given Right to destroy any regime he & his close pal, God, dislikes. In 2006 he affirms his intention to keep a "First Strike" option despite all these loony protesters. Ascension is just a button away. http://www.notinourname-seattle.net/nion.html
2006 -- US: "My Name is Rachel Corrie," a one-act play due to open this month at the New York Theater Workshop, was canceled six weeks ago.
The theater’s artistic director made his decision after talking to leaders in the Jewish community; he later told "The New York Times," “It seemed as though if we proceeded, we would be taking a stand we didn’t want to take.”
The London producers called the cancellation "censorship".
In the fall of of this year it opens instead at the Minetta Lane Theatre, to an extended run, to an outpouring of critical acclaim — the best reviewed new play of the season.
"Mere factual innocence is no reason not to carry out a death sentence properly reached."
— One of the more enlightened utterances by Beloved & Respected Comrade Leader US Supreme Court Justice Antonin "Benito" Scalia
