The AJLPP-USA Year End Report, 2006

AJLPP-USA | The AJLPP started as the Solidarity Committee for A Just and Lasting Peace in the Philippines ( SolCom ) that was formed by BAYAN International-USA with the International League of Peoples Struggle in the US in September 2002.

The SolCom was able to gather more than 5,000 petitions, sent more than 2,000 signed postcards to the Europe, sold more than 500 books, issued thousands of postcards, hundreds of posters and buttons in its three years of action until AJLPP came into existence. It is worthwhile to look back and retrace the steps the AJLPP has taken during the last year 2006 so it can look forward in this current year 2007. It is but fitting to move forward with greater zeal and determination to serve the Filipino people and the Filipino American community in the United States.

Bush’s Iraq Strategy for 2007: A Second Civil War ... Or Genocide?

AK Gupta | After all the study groups and reports, an electoral repudiation, months of deliberation and hundreds of thousands dead, the Bush administration Iraq policy debate boils down to this: choosing between genocide against Sunni Arabs – a strategy known as the “80 percent solution” – or fomenting a second civil war, this one a Shia-on- Shia death match [Read More]. || More Coverage From the Indypendent: Sadrists || Casualties || Escalation || Anti-War Dems Say Yes ...

Dialectic of Enlightenment

wikipedia, the free encyclopedia | "War is the greatest evil requiring taxes and police so the few can control the many. (James Madison)

In imperialism, sacrifices are made for corporatons and the egos of the powerful, not for the country. People could surrender their freedom to the Grand Inquisitor for his promise of happiness, Doestoevsky warned.

In 1984, wars become domestic necessities to divert from economic contradictions and injustice. (George Orwell) more...  0 Comments

Narco News: AP Reporter in Oaxaca Accepts Money From Oaxacan State Government

Al Giordano / Narco News | Associated Press correspondent in Oaxaca, Rebeca Romero, sent us an email on Sunday, January 7, and also published it on her website, ADN Sureste (“Southeast Digital News Agency”), of which she is the publisher. Her letter (and introduction to it on her website) is marked by the same shoddy qualities as her AP reports from Oaxaca during 2006 about the conflicts there. She makes vague claims that she does not document about a supposed “lynch mob climate” against her that she says was generated by Narco News, specifically by a report that she is paid by Oaxaca’s state government, which she denies.

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: NYC Grassroots Media Conference - Feb 24, 2007 at New School University

NYC Grassroots Media Coalition | This year, the NYC Grassroots Media Conference seeks to ask: What are the common threads inherent in our global struggles for social change and how does media contribute to our understanding of the root causes of injustice faced by world communities? From educating ourselves and our government leaders to spreading our messages and recruiting broader and more diverse constituencies into our campaigns, media is central to the struggle for social justice. Therefore, the fight for better access to and representation in the media is essential for advancing peace and justice both at home and abroad.

Till Deportation Do Us Part

Rebecca DeRosa | Now that the Republicans have lost control of Congress, perhaps legislation such as the Uniting American Families Act will finally get passed. This bill would give U.S. citizens the right to give their loved ones citizenship.

Yes, this is a right that already exists, but only if you marry someone of the opposite sex.

The 50 Day Sean Bell Vigil in Queens

CrossPost | It is a 50day, 24hour, 7day a week vigil, begun on Monday, January 1st, and concluding on Monday, February 19th. I think it obvious that the 50 days symbolize the 50 bullets fired at Sean Bell and his friends.

The vigil is taking place directly across from the 103rd precinct, on 168th Street, right off Jamaica Avenue and 91st Avenue, in the Jamaica, Queens section of New York City. more...  4 Comments

Pinnacle Group LLC: New York's Evil Empire?

Jason Gooljar | I saw it firsthand yesterday. Walking into a building with a friend and community activist of the area that is owned by the Pinnacle Group LLC, I saw the conditions that tenants are living in within the Morrison-Soundview Avenues area of the Bronx. The Pinnacle Group owns an entire strip of buildings not far from the 6 subway train stop. What is being done to the tenants of these buildings must end. The former Attorney General seems to have been investigating and I hope that investigation will continue under the new Attorney General Andrew Cuomo. more...  3 Comments
