Front Page: Oscars, Russia and Serbia, Protest in Gaza

  • The Oscars ceremony held last night produced a huge sweep for the Coen Brothers and their film No Country for Old Men. Daniel Day-Lewis won Best Actor for There Will be Blood and Marion Cotillard took home Best Actress for La Vie en Rose. The ceremony marked one of the biggest entertainment events to take place since the end of the writer's strike.
  • Russia has renewed its vow to stand with Serbia against Kosovo's independence. The statement came from Dmitry Medvedev, the Deputy Prime Minister who is favored to follow Putin after next Sunday's presidential election. After last week's violence in Serbia following Kosovo's declaration of independence, Russia has emerged stronger as Serbia's ally. Deputy PM Dmitry Medvedev said, "we proceed from the assumption that Serbia is a united country, whose jurisdiction covers the whole of its territory, and we shall stick to this principled stand."
  • Protesters formed a huge "human chain" today, made up of thousands of Palestinians. The chain, made in Gaza is in protest at Israel's blockade of the territory. Though the turnout for the protest was lower than expected, Israel had feared the protest would become violent. They issued this statement, "Israel will work to avoid a deterioration of the situation but declares unequivocally that Hamas must assume full responsibility if that happens."

I'm surprised this protest from Palestinians even made Western media - they have non-violent protests alongside their anti-Occupation Israeli friends (about half the Israeli people support them) constantly, but we never get to hear about that. And what does Hamas have to do with these people protesting for their rights? Way to be uncool, Israeli government.
