is loving yourself and your community enough to teach yourself the most vital under-reported and mis-reported information, and then to teach that information to your community. Civil Information Activism (CIA) is not screaming at buildings with a bullhorn or creating face to face confrontations with the media or the police. CIA is attempting to connect with your community in the most respectful manner possible. CIA is not blaming the media, but becoming the media. CIA is acting in small non-threatening groups, not creating a mob or riot mentality which will only hasten the police state we see growing year by year. Civil Information Activism is one of the few options I currently recognize as being a productive tool in the battle to disseminate information and to create the world most of us wish to live in.
For me Civil Information Activism is very simple
Share the truth. Share the truth with love. Share the truth with friends, family, strangers, and if you are really brave the people you work with. Share the truth not as a guru, not as a know it all, not as a "I know something you don't", rather share it humbly. Share small or share big but share. Share like you are Gandhi, or share like you are in kindergarten, but share.

Civil Information Activism
So the question that comes immediately to mind is ‘Do the ends justify the means?” Many protesters believe that acting in an uncivilized manner is warranted to get their point across. I believe that your personal behavior is a reflection of your values and that if you truly believe in your cause then you must always reflect your values in your every move. The best example of this is Gandhi who used his non-violent protests and persistence to defeat the greatest empire in the world.

Welcome to Civil Information Activism / Edmonton
I volunteer my time as a "Civil Information Activist" in the city of Edmonton and have done so since March of 2007.
My practice of "Civil Information Activism" has earned me trust from folks with-in my community by capturing those important breaking news stories on video camera, and publishing them as quick as I can on social media's YouTube.
Youtube[ing] news stories is only half way there at completing my civil information action. Getting out into the public squares, sharing my news stories with folks one on one, including friends, family, co-workers accomplishes the job I set out to do as an activist.
Citizen media news is my way as one Canadian citizen contributing for the good of my community by practicing my rights and freedoms including freedom of the press.

Civil Informationing…modernizing public activism
By Robin Hordon
January 2002 - November 2011
The concept of "Civil Informationing" came to my mind when, in 2002, 2003 and 2004, I was involved in planning and executing several typical anti-war protests against the upcoming and ensuing war in Iraq while living in Reno, NV. What stood out to me this time around is that NOW we had the Internet...YET we were still only doing the exact same "dated" things that were developed 40 years earlier. Simply put, there was not very much integration between the "Internet and Information age"…the activists protesting in the streets…the citizens observing our actions…and the spreading of information. What was frustrating was that although the VAST MAJORITY of feedback from the citizens was against the war back then [even in Reno, NV and an interesting yet ignored/forgotten point!], citizens who walked and drove past did so without becoming more informed about what was actually going on. The only thing shared were feelings against the war. In other words, it was the same old “complaint” or protest process…it wasn’t activism to become a political force.
It was clear to me that modern era activists' public protest tactics needed a change...a complete overhaul per se...because the "age old" models of protest activities were clearly not working in spite of the fact that we had some new tools at our disposal. In the years since, more and more excellent videos, DVDs, YouTube-google videos, handouts, specific websites and other "teaching-educating tools" have been developed. This new street action of delivering and activating was performed mostly at the hand of the 9.11.01 Truth activists who have been internet savvy from the get-go. YET STILL, the useless and too often confrontational and misguided "challenge authority street actions" have remained exactly the same as they were some 40 years ago…ineffective!
SOCIAL NETWORKING…what is going on here?
I choose to interpret the radical expansion of social networking via the likes of face book and other systems as “people meeting people with common objectives to make things better”. It’s a great opportunity to get some good, peace based and FACTUAL-TRUTHFULL information out into this vast new network to combat FAUXNEWS etc.
Civil Informationing (CI) was developed to bring the best of the protests and activisms 60s forward…such as the great power and wonderful hearts of concerned citizenry…the willingness of those folks to stand up in public to voice their opposition in actions known as “vigils“…the deep desire for citizens to make positive changes…and to integrate it all with the new millennium's "information age"…aka…its great potentials for self educating and self informing found everywhere within the Internet, websites, DVDs and online videos.
The word CIVIL was chosen to denote both civic duty and to establish behavior. The word INFORMATIONING was invented because “Its the information baby!” The combo CI is intended to be added to, and contrasted with CD…Civil Disobedience and CR…Civil Resistance…which each have good and bad points.

Edmonton Coalition Against War and Racism (ECAWAR) set up picket signs and shared information leaflets with farmer market patrons Saturday April 7, 2013. Salvos Prelorentzos Peace Award 2012 recipient Paula Che Kirman is interviewed by media news activist Doug Brinkman on this YouTube report. ECAWAR activists say Canadians oppose aggression and the use of force to settle disputes nationally or internationally. Many Canadians were outraged to learn that the Harper government lied about the real cost of the F-35's which was estimated at upwards of $45 billion dollars. But the monopoly owned-and controlled media block discussion on the question of what is the aim of such military expenditures?

From SupportMahjoub.org: For twelve long years, Mohammad Mahjoub, a torture survivor, has been detained without charge in Canada. He was held for lengthy periods in solitary confinement and later under house arrest -- all on the basis of secret information which the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) has admitted was likely obtained under torture. Finally, after twelve years, Mr. Mahjoub is permitted to travel outside Toronto, and he is bringing his demand for justice to the home base of Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
Justice for Mohammad Mahjoub - 12 Year Tour
Mr. Mahjoub is one of five Muslim men who have been struggling for justice in Canada against so-called security certificates. Security certificates allow the government to indefinitely detain or deport people on the basis of their profile. He will tell his story as his speaking tour, which began in 2012, continues into Western Canada. It is a rare opportunity for audiences in other cities to hear this shocking and compelling story first-hand.He will be joined by Syed Hussan, a member of the Justice for Mahjoub Network. Hussan is a migrant justice, anti-austerity and indigenous solidarity organizer who has been active in No One Is Illegal.

Grim Actions Applied by Authorities
(No Music or Food) during Mass 4/20 Rally
There's definitely a change in attitude, for the first time at any pot rally that I can think of in the past 5 years they've actually been taking bongs and confiscating marijuana. 420 activist Ryjin Vander Hoek
A cold brisk westerly wind mixed with the grim actions of the local authorities could not stop the thousand-plus activists from conducting in solidarity their annual mass civil disobedience action in the face of the criminalized marijuana laws of Canada. Unlike past rallies this year authorities fenced off the stage and threatened arrests if any music was played. For the first time since these 420 rallies began in the backyard of the Alberta Legislature authorities would not allow 420 organizers to give out any free munchies to protesters.

Active Citizenship "Don't wait for the media, Be The Media!" Doug Brinkman
This web site, blogs, twitters and YouTubes are excellent tools to communicate news and information but it's only a small part of what Civil Information Activism is really about. Civil Information Activism comes from the connections we make with-in our communities with one on one people interactions.
Farmer's markets, protests, rallies, special events, busy street corners and festivals are just some examples to where we stage our sharing news and information of our causes.
Just like May Day marchs in past today's May Day celebrations was not short on song, chants, placards and rants along the route. Different this time was the noticeable less visibility of local unions flags and placards and more anarchists and anonymous flags and banners. The newly formed C.A.P.S.E high-lighting government cuts and the high cost of education and IDLE NO MORE protection of treaties, mother nature and water seemed to be the leading themes to today's May Day Parade. The parade took an unusual detour along Whyte to publicly scold the management of Strange City Tattoos and Piercings. The speeches were passionate and the smiles and laughter were frequent along the parade route of the mostly empty streets of Old Strathcona.

Richard It finally happened.
After more than a decade in Guantanamo Bay and Bagram, Omar Khadr is home. Early Saturday morning, the former child soldier and Canadian citizen was transferred to a maximum-security prison near Kingston, Ontario, where he is now in the hands of correctional services. Over the past 10 years, Omar Khadr’s rights have been violated time and again. He has been denied the right to due process and a fair trial, the right to protection from torture, and the rights stemming from the Convention on the Rights of the Child and its Optional Protocol on Children in Armed Conflict. While it’s still early, and the road ahead is long, what’s clear is the political battle is now over. Thank you for joining us and over 30,000 Canadian Change.org users—along with global citizens from over 90 countries—in our call to repatriate Omar Khadr. This victory is yours as much as it is Omar’s. Regrettably, the Canadian government has continued to demonize Khadr in an effort to undermine his rehabilitation. Canadians ought to expect more from their elected officials. Against all odds, Khadr has been a model prisoner and a keen student. He has the right to prove himself. Now, he will finally have that chance. Richard, this development is long overdue—but it is an unmistakable step towards protecting human rights and the rights of children in armed conflict. And it marks the end of a decade-long national embarrassment. For now, let us wish Omar well.

Recently I've thrown my hat back into the 9/11 fray for truth and justice as a part time activist . We made such a noise over our years of civil information actions with a few dozen activists during parades, farmer's markets, outdoor festivals that even local corporate media could not miss us. Local columnist and author Todd Babiak interviewed me after spotting us by the market places passing out free DVDs and leaflets in around Edmonton, Alberta Canada.The day after Todd Babiak 's story was published in the Edmonton Journal he called me up to say the news room was overwhelmed with angry e-mails from all over Noth America. He said some of those letters were not very nice.
As a result the editors decided to select the BEST letters from the hundreds of e-mails and published 3 the following week. Todd's no longer with the Journal but we do cross each others path from time to time. He always asks me "how is the world of conspiracies?" I smile and say I'm still at it!

Question re-9/11 Tower 7, Why won't the News Media Talk About This? University of Alberta, Edmonton ( Transcribed By Doug Brinkman)
Man who tried to "arrest" George W. Bush
in Calgary dies in B.C.
The Associated Press
| May 06, 2013 | Last Updated: May 06, 2013 - 10:40 UTC
A man who was the only inmate convicted of murder following the famous 1971 Attica, N.Y., prison uprising, and who 38 years later tried to make a "citizen arrest" of former U.S. president George W. Bush in Calgary, has died.
The body of John Boncore, 61, was found March 13 in his home on the Adams Lake Indian Reserve in British Columbia, Barb McLintock of the B.C. Coroners Service said Monday.
He reportedly had fallen earlier nearby, she said, but the cause of death has yet to be released because the investigation is ongoing.
"There is nothing to suggest foul play," she said.
The death was reported last month in local B.C. media.
Boncore, a Mohawk Indian who was born in Buffalo, was known as John B. Hill at Attica when inmates took control of the maximum-security prison in rural western New York.
Thirty-two inmates and 11 civilian employees died during the five-day siege, including 10 hostages and 29 inmates who died when state troopers stormed the prison's D Yard on Sept. 13, 1971.
In 1975, a state Supreme Court jury in Buffalo convicted Boncore of murder in the beating death of Corrections Officer William Quinn. He was sentenced to at least 20 years in prison.
Boncore, who had denied attacking Quinn with a piece of wood as alleged, was granted clemency in 1976 by then-governor Hugh Carey, who also freed seven other inmates convicted of crimes during the riot and dismissed pending disciplinary actions against 20 law enforcement officers.
Following his release from prison, Boncore became active in several causes and eventually moved to Canada.
Boncore — who often used his aboriginal name Splitting the Sky — was arrested in 2009 when he tried to break through a barricade of Calgary police officers to get inside a building where U.S. president George W. Bush was delivering a speech.
Boncore was with a group of activists who were protesting the paid appearance by the former president, who they accused of war crimes in Afghanistan and Iraq.
He was found guilty of obstructing a peace officer but was released with a conditional discharge was ordered to pay $1,000 to a charity of his choice.
After the trial, Boncore told reporters he stood by his actions.
"I'm not so sure if I'll make a citizen's arrest, but you can believe wherever George Bush (and his former cabinet colleagues) ... wherever they come I will be there to voice my opposition,'' he said.

This looks too much like self censorship, what I see is a lot of these 9/11 truth people they want to be civil, be quiet, they want to be respectful, how do we get all this attention against Obama Care, people got up, they got sick of being civil, silent, respectful, and they got up and they started yelling at these guys, this has captured the imagination of the country , so I'm not one of these people that believe we ought to be meek little mice up there, all little Ghandis who are polite and nice all the time while we're literally accusing our Government of Treason!
3:27 - John Bonce responds: I agree for the most part but I highly suspect that this guy (Brinkman) is one of many agent provocateurs operating with-in the 9/11 Truth Movement. There are many people operating as provocateurs ... if this guy (Brinkman) is not getting paid by the government, by CSIS ( Canadian Security Intelligence Service) he should demand a salary and back-pay.
