The Center For Information Awareness

The Center For Information Awareness(CFIA)is a registered non-profit organization dedicated to bringing awareness to world issues, facilitating citizen communication, and making independent news accessable.
Our initiatives include but are not limited to:

* Creating open, free community email lists
* Promoting the independent media through local and international campaigns
* Creating a venue for independent news organizations to feature their material and thus expose it to new and broader audiences.

We at The Center For Information Awareness know that in order for democracy to function and for powerful structures to be held accountable, citizens need to have access to unfiltered information. A certain degree of transparency is necessary for democracy to work. In providing a space for citizens to communicate freely, we think the powerful will be more accountable to the public.

News
Amy Goodman - Apr 22 2005

"If the reconstruction industry is stunningly inept at rebuilding, that may be because rebuilding is not its primary purpose," writes Naomi Klein in the cover story of this week's Nation. "If anything, the stories of corruption and incompetence serve to mask this deeper scandal: the rise of a predatory form of disaster capitalism that uses the desperation and fear created by catastrophe to engage in radical social and economic engineering."

Sardonic Utopia

Poetry
Vexation - Apr 27 2005

Washed out idealist.
Losing to hypocrisy.
Clinging to fading delusions.
Holding on to corrupted objectives.
Dancing in the darkness.
Guided by the pale moonlight.
Exhausted by the futility.
