Censored Gulf News: Amnesty, Nicolas Cage call for national support for Gulf

Human rights standards guarantee the right of people to be informed of and to participate in the decisions that may affect their rights. Gulf residents have a right to participate not only in decisions pertaining to the recovery process, but also in assessing the potential impacts of future projects on health, access to clean water and livelihoods. - Amnesty International



Amnesty International and Nicolas Cage are working to prevent the Gulf Coast peoples' voice from drowning in the crime against humanity. They are calling for self-determination through community councils, a democratic

I like this kind of initiative - which asserts the rights of those involved to participate in managing the 'crisis', and to have a voice (and for it not to be a crime to use that voice).

I hope this receives the massive support it deserves. For only a small amount of effort on the part of millions of individuals, a HUGE amount could be achieved.

Wiki on Cage.


...In May 2006, he bought a 40-acre (160,000 m2) island in the Exuma archipelago...

He once owned the medieval castle of Schloss Neidstein in the Oberpfalz region in Germany...

In August 2007, Cage purchased a home in Middletown, Rhode Island. The 24,000-square-foot (2,200 m2), brick-and-stone country manor occupies 26 acres, has 12 bedrooms, 10 full bathrooms, and ocean views...

Shortly after selling his German castle, Cage also put homes in Rhode Island, Louisiana, Nevada, and California, as well as a $7 million island in the Bahamas, up for sale.

On July 14, 2009, the Internal Revenue Service filed documents in New Orleans in connection with a federal tax lien against property owned by Cage in Louisiana, concerning unpaid federal taxes. The IRS alleges that Cage failed to pay over $6.2 million in federal income tax for the year 2007.[33] In addition, the Internal Revenue Service has another lien for more than $350,000 in unpaid taxes dating from 2002 to 2004.[34] Cage filed a $20 million lawsuit on October 16, 2009, against his business manager, Samuel J. Levin, alleging negligence and fraud.[35] The lawsuit states that Levin "had failed to pay taxes when they were due and had placed [Cage] in speculative and risky real estate investments...

Samuel Levin filed a counter-complaint and responded to the lawsuit in a filing stating that he warned Cage ...

...Cage's "shopping spree entailed the purchase of three additional residences at a total cost of more than $33 million; the purchase of 22 automobiles (including 9 Rolls Royces); 12 purchases of expensive jewelry; and 47 purchases of artwork and exotic items."[38] One of those exotic items was a dinosaur skull of a Tarbosaurus for which Nicolas Cage paid $276,000 in an auction after winning a bidding contest against Leonardo DiCaprio.[39]


Nicolas Cage remains as one of Hollywood's highest paid actors, earning $40 million in 2009 according to Forbes Magazine.


Sounds like he wastes enough money to bail out the Gulf himself. I'm always fascinated by how people with that much money can get themselves into so much financial trouble. He is definitely a consummate Capitalist just like his classmates from his High School. They all pretend to be on the Left but lavish in their wealth that came from pure Capitalism. Only in America.

He does also give a lot to charity. This sounds like a good cause to me.
