More about: PAUL GLORIA & JOE BARTON

Paula Gloria - A successful airwave speculator in the '80s, in 1990 Ms. Gloria became the first (and only) female entrepreneur to successfully build and operate a U.S. cellular telephone company, which was sold in 1992 to Telephone & Data Systems for $21 million. In 1996 she created The Concordia Foundation while living on the Island of Cyprus and experimenting with eco-village renewable technologies. She came to NYC in 1997 and become involved in Public Access television as a tool to make available important knowledge, often suppressed in mainstream media, with her first TV series, a radical holistic health program entitled The Whole Tooth. In year 2000 Ms. Gloria traveled to India to gain eastern divine knowledge and to make her charity more effective by addressing global problems such as pedophilia and organized sex-slavery. Her daily TV show "Farther Down the Rabbit Hole", inspired by the breakthrough documentary film "What the Bleep Do We Know?!" airs on Time-Warner Manhattan cable with over one hundred shows on the Net.

 

Paula Gloria Tsakona is the President and Director of The Concordia Foundation and a Producer of New Realities Global Public Access.

The Concordia Foundation was created in 1996 with her ex-husband Vincenzo Santiglia, a native of Sicily, Italy while they were living on the island of Cyprus doing preliminary work to create an eco-village.  The initial money in the foundation had come from windfall profits in the cellular licensing opportunities of the 80’s.  The name was inspired by the famous Sicilian temple in Agrigento dedicated to “the harmonious gathering of all the forces.”

Her present passion is free access to all people of the world to global communication using the tools of Non-Violent Communication.  Inspired by Alan Steinfeld’s ten year Public Access TV show she is convinced that the terrific stress and challenge of our modern day can be transformed into the energy needed to create New Realities 

All efforts of the charity is dedicated to this purpose.

About 60% of federal prisoners are drug offenders

Just 3% are violent offenders.
Whereas violent offenders serve an average of 54% of their prison term,
drug offenders are legally required to serve at least 85% of their prison term.

WHO'S IN PRISON?

When Human Rights 95 requested information from nonviolent Drug War prisoners who feel their penalties are unjust, we were flooded with painful case histories. Even more could not provide photos.

These are prisoners of the Drug War. They have real lives and loving families. They have human rights and human faces. If the people featured in this exhibit look like your friends and neighbors, it's because they are.

Some are completely innocent. Many admit their mistakes and want to change their ways. Others feel that it was the government that committed the crime, not they. Many were entrapped in a moment of weakness or betrayed as part of an acquaintance's bargain to get a lighter sentence. These personal stories provide but a glimpse of how pervasively such human rights abuses have become institutionalized in a nation once known as "The Land of the Free."


Marijuana: Prisoners of Conscience
  • The FBI reported that, nationwide, there were 695,201 marijuana arrests made in 1997 alone. Of these, 87% were for possession.
     
  • Since 1965, there have been over 11 million marijuana arrests in the United States of America. The marijuana arrest rate right now is at an all time high.
     
  • An estimated 37,000 marijuana prisoners are currently sitting in federal and state prisons and in local jails in the U.S.
Sources: FBI Uniform Crime Reports, Marijuana Policy Project

African-American Men
  • Nationally, 1 out of 3 African-American males in their 20s are either in prison, on probation, or on parole. In Washington DC, that percentage is 1 out of 2 African-American men between the ages of 15 and 35.
     
  • If current trends continue, more African American children will go to prison than to college when they grow up.
     
  • If current trends continue, African-American children are more likely to go to prison than to college when they grow up.

 

USA: Leading the World In Incarceration Rates

Largely fueled by the Drug War, America imprisons a higher percentage of its citizens than any other nation in the world - except for Russia.

Drug czar General Barry McCaffrey, head of the federal Office of Narcotics Control Policy, has called this "America's Gulag" and warns that "we cannot arrest our way out of this problem." But the prison industrial complex grinds on relentlessly. Our government now locks up over 1.7 million people at the federal, state, and local levels. The federal prison population alone is over 100,000 people and projected to swell to 130,000 by the end of the decade. Only 3% of federal inmates are violent criminals. About 60% are drug offenders.

Since mandatory minimums were enacted, the number of women inmates has tripled. The majority of them are first time, nonviolent, low-level drug offenders. Over 80% of the female prisoners in the United States are mothers; 70% are single parents. Their children are left to fend for themselves, whether among relatives, in foster homes or on the streets.

Meanwhile, an African-American male is more than seven times as likely to be incarcerated as the average American; almost five times as likely as his South African counterpart.

More and more Americans have begun to ask how many lives will be destroyed by US drug policy that wages war against its own people.

Going for the Gold: A shameful first place for the USA.
