Investment Giant BlackRock Divests from Leviev’s Africa-Israel Due to Israeli Settlements

Adalah-NY | In another stunning blow to Israeli settlement-builder Lev Leviev, the Israeli business magazine Globes Online has reported that BlackRock Inc., one of the world’s largest investment management firms, has divested from Leviev’s Africa-Israel Investments. The Globes article follows a similar report by the Norwegian news service Norwatch. The move comes after a nearly two-year long global boycott campaign of Leviev’s businesses that developed in response to the billionaire’s construction activities in at least four Israeli settlements in the Occupied West Bank, all of which violate international law, and his abusive labor practices in the diamond industry in Angola and Namibia. more...  0 Comments

Letter to New York Times Journalist Simon Romero

Jed Brandt | Is your commitment to US imperialism and the entitled management of Latin America by its landed, commercial and military elites purely ideological, by heritage, or more traditionally mercenary? Did a sexy girl spurn you in youth for the campus Marxist poet and the superior entertainments of his fitted leather jacket, does it burn? more...  0 Comments

Open Letter to the Labor Research Association: Don't Honor Israeli Apartheid

Michael Letwin, NYCLAW | As discussed below, "TULIP," initiated by Stuart Appelbaum, is a "progressive" mouthpiece for the Histadrut, the Zionist labor federation that has spearheaded -- and whitewashed -- apartheid, dispossession and ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians since the 1920s. more...  9 Comments

A Question Over Iran: Can the People Make History or Not?

By Mike Ely | The Kasama Project | There is a self-deceptive politics (among some leftists) that seeks to prettify all kinds of reactionary forces that (for one reason or another) are in opposition to U.S. imperialism — including Islamic reactionaries, Kim Jung Il, “hardline” revisionists of the Li Peng and Eric Honecker type and so on. And in the process they have a real, almost startling, hostility toward sections of the people who rise up in important if still-inarticulate ways. My sense is that such politics arise from a despair over actually developing our own revolutionary forces — and a resigned assumption that we have no other alternative but to fall behind any forces (ugly, oppressive, reactionary or not) who (one way or another) who seem to be on America’s shit list.

60 YEARS NATO: ENOUGH IS ENOUGH

Linde Jacobs | On April 3 and 4 NATO-members met in Strasbourg — on the border of France and Germany — to celebrate the organization’s 60th birthday and to reconsider the role of NATO in the future political and military landscape.

The struggle for communication.

Emilio de Lima (Ed.) | The IMC of the world are the most appropriate space for discussions and proposals around the right to communication. The hemisphere, the continent and the world were, are and will be affected by what happens to almost the 200,000,000 (two hundred million) Brazilian citizens. We are all together on this ship in danger that is the planet earth. No one is alone or alone can solve the most serious problems.

We will either determine our history ourselves or let it be determined withoutus

General Assembly of Insurgent Workers | We, manual workers, employees, jobless, temporary workers, local or migrants, are not passive tv-viewers. Since the murder of Alexandros Grigoropoulos on Saturday night we participate in the demonstrations, the clashes with the police, the occupations of the centre or the neighborhoods. Time and again we had to leave work and our daily obligations to take the streets with the students, the university students and the other proletarians in struggle. more...  0 Comments

Editorial Cartoon: Mission Accomplished!

Mike Flugennock | So, I'm poring over the Drudge Report in my daily search for cheap laffs, and I come across this AP dispatch from Baghdad reporting on the Iraqi reporter who threw his shoes at President Chimp, and think "whoa, that's some cheap laffs – and he almost hit the sonofabitch, too! Sweet!" Later that day, I go by Drudge again, and find a story from AFP noting that the perpetrator of this "shoe-icide attack" is being hailed as a hero in most of the Arab World, and I think "whoa, shit! This story's really growing some legs...!" more...  0 Comments

About Amadeu Casellas, political prisoner (Catalonia, Spain)

Grup de suporrt a Amadeu Casellas d'Osona | In regards to my recovery from the hunger strike, I feel much better. However, since I quit the hunger strike, they haven’t facilitated me any kind of dietary reinforcement. The medical services, apart from preventing the doctor we trust to see me, haven’t done anything. A big part of my recovery is owed to my prison mates, who have been giving me part of their meal, especially yogurts, fruit and pasta. The medical services have only given me vitamins in pills. Nevertheless, as I said, I feel quite recuperated and now it is only a matter of waiting for these 90 days to pass.
