American Indians have filed a new legal challenge to the Washington Redskins’ trademark, contending the NFL team’s name is racially offensive, speakers at the Native American Journalists Association national convention said Friday.
A petition to cancel the trademark was filed Friday with a board of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in Washington.
“There is no compromise with racism,” Suzan Shown Harjo, president of the Morning Star Institute, said at the conference. The institute is a Washington-based non-profit organization that advances Indian causes.
“Power concedes nothing,” she said. “You have to go in and make change happen.”
The patent office’s Trademark Trial and Appeal Board backed a similar petition filed in 1992. That decision was overturned on appeal, but the door was left open for another attempt to invalidate the trademark, Harjo said.

Save the Lebanese Civilians Petition July 25, 2006Posted by C.A.R.D in Arab, Arabs & Muslims, Beirut, Canada, Card, catastrophe, Citizens Against Racism and Discrimination, civilian, civilians, dead, Death, EU, France, Gaza, Germany, Israel, Isreal, Lebanese, Lebanon, Petition, Save, UK, USA.
To The Concerned Citizen of The World:
“Killing innocent civilians is NOT an act of self-defense. Destroying a sovereign nation is NOT a measured response.”
Lebanese civilians have been under the constant attack of the state of Israel for several days. The State of Israel, in disregard to international law and the Geneva Convention, is launching a maritime and air siege targeting the entire population of the country. Innocent civilians are being collectively punished in Lebanon by the state of Israel in deliberate acts of terrorism as described in Article 33 of the Geneva Convention.
The Lebanese people feel left out by the world that is turning a blind eye on the savagery of the Israeli state. Israel does not seem to be capable of approaching any problem outside the realm of the military power bestowed on it by the government of the United States of America and other western governments.
