Ilegalizar PP y PSOE

justicia y territorio | Pedimos solidaridad a todo el Mundo, para que se investigue por parte de las instituciones y colectivos pertinentes, nacionales e internacionales si, como sospechamos, se debería iniciar un proceso para la ilegalización de los partidos mayoritarios PP y PSOE del Estado Español, ante la plaga de corrupción, ingobernabilidad e impunidad de todos estos años, que pretenderían continuar con estas Elecciones Generales adelantadas. more...  0 Comments

Obama: The “Best Face” For Imperialism

White Mask | Sullivan writes that a (ruling class) “consensus” agenda for endless war and increased repression will be in effect regardless of who is president. He challenges the reader to pick who could best implement all this in the face of global isolation and profound domestic alienation. And, in the process, he sheds light on the real role of elections in this society.

Between Rap and Reggae

Mumia Abu-Jamal | For while inner city poverty gave birth to a music that spoke to conditions of the Bronx, Brooklyn, and East Coast life in worsening ghettoes, reggae emerged from the slums of Jamaica, where the poor were informed, not only by their poverty, but by the decades long socio-religious movement of Rastafarianism, which, with its return-to-Africa ethos, gave a future vision of hope to people in largely hopeless conditions. more...  0 Comments

Barack Obama: White Power in Black Face

dejitarob | When you talk about a presidential election where they're going to spend more than a billion dollars, a lot of forces with a whole bunch of money are promoting him for their own reasons. Not because of what's important to Africans, but because of what's important to this element of the ruling class. more...  2 Comments

Borough President Scott Stringer comes out with new cookbook

A fan | Scott Stringer is a fiery advocate for community-based planning. He was instrumental in demanding that only 50% of the public fields on Randall's Island be sold to private schools; and he lent his good offices to the cause of Columbia expansion when he announced a 'deal' which only the University and two sell-out front groups approved of. He's a great cook! more...  3 Comments

US to hold 9/11 show trial at Guantánamo

Joe Kay | The US military on Monday announced charges against six individuals it alleges helped plan the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. The six prisoners—all of whom have been held incommunicado for more than six years, deprived of any legal rights or representation, and subjected to illegal and abusive interrogation methods—are to be tried in a single trial before a military commission at the Guantánamo Bay prison camp. The prosecution is seeking the death penalty for alleged war crimes.

With the announced charges, the American government is setting in motion a vast show trial within its drumhead military tribunal system. The aim is not to arrive at the truth of what happened on September 11 and who was responsible, but to intimidate popular opposition to the occupation of Iraq and bolster the “war on terror,” which has served as the basic pretext for a vast expansion of US militarism abroad and a wholesale assault on democratic rights at home.

The process announced Monday is a travesty of justice and an affront to any conception of due process. The timing of the announcement and likely time-table for the proceedings—due to unfold in the midst of the 2008 presidential election campaign—point to the reactionary political calculations underlying the project. more...  1 Comments
