Bush, ‘political cadaver’ -- It’s all but (over)

nano | There is something politically odd about Bush’s tour of various Latin American countries. South American nations were ‘lost’ to the U.S. some time ago – the price paid for America’s fixation in the Middle East. Bush is loathed internationally but is particularly despised in Latin America. The Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez accurately called Bush a “political cadaver” and led 20,000 Argentinian supporters in the chant, “gringo go home”, during his counter-tour of the region. more...  0 Comments

D.A. Ignores Evidence of Police & Mayoral Misconduct

thomas paine | If you were in NYC during the RNC, or know someone who was, and witnessed the fascist preemptive mass arrests, you know the truth. The cops - brass - and civilian commanders - the Mayor - should be charged for civil rights offenses. Such contempt for the law by law enforcement and high officials should not be allowed to pass without a response.

State repression in Kashmir continues amid mass rallies

PTUDC | The state in Kashmir has shown its true colors by increasing repression on comrades arrested yesterday when they were protesting for the basic demands of the peoples of Kashmir.

The police has falsely accused the arrested comrades of attempting to kill and injure others. Also allegations are made on disturbing the state procedures. All these allegations are false as the comrades were carrying out a peaceful rally to remind the state of its promises it had made after the earthquake. more...  0 Comments

Latin America, Backyard No Longer

Prensa Latina | As US President George W. Bush is about to start his Latin American tour, he will find a region very different to what it was when he took over the White House.
Free Trade FTAA (ALCA) style, conceived for the benefit of US companies and the nation´s hegemonic plans is no longer an option. The scheme that should have begun operating in 2005 is practically dead. Only the bilateral agreements between Washington and some fearful or allucinating governments are left to show no benefits for the poorer of the sides.
