Obama for Head Prison Warden

@ | If you still haven't made up your mind about the 2008 U.S. elections, here is your chance to support Barack Obama for Head Prison Warden of the United States. Obama is looks like a shoo-in to become the next President of the United States. When he takes office, he will preside over a system of injustice that imprisons hundreds of thousands of African American men who couldn't vote for him. We doubt that Obama will do anything to reform or abolish this system. But since he represents "change we can believe in", let's remind his supporters what his presidency really means for millions of Americans behind bars. more...  37 Comments

Bubbles, Booms and Busts

Mumia Abu-Jamal | Let me tell you what capitalists really think of the notion of "free markets." In 1995, Dwayne Andreas, then-chairman of the agribusiness giant, Archer Daniels Midland, told and interviewer, "There isn't one thing in the world that is sold in a free market. Not one! The only place you see a free market is in the speeches of politicians. People who are not from the Midwest do not understand that this is a socialist society."* 'Free market' is a talking point. The only thing free, is the pain. more...  0 Comments

Mumia Abu-Jamal legal update: The Philly DA still wants to execute him!

Lead attorney Robert R. Bryan | Below is the new legal update from Mumia Abu-Jamal’s lead attorney Robert R. Bryan, concerning Mumia’s appeal to the US Supreme Court. He is appealing the US Third Circuit Court decision denying a new guilt-phase trial or a preliminary hearing that could have led to a new guilt phase trial. The Supreme Court granted Bryan’s request for a 60-day extension, so he will have to submit his petition by Dec. 19, 2008.

Significantly, Bryan announces that the Philadelphia DA is appealing the Third Circuit Court’s affirmation of US District Court Judge William Yohn’s 2001 decision, which ‘overturned’ the death penalty and stated that if the DA wants to re-impose the death sentence, they must hold a new penalty-phase jury trial where new evidence of Mumia’s innocence can be presented, BUT, the jury can only decide between a sentence of life without chance of parole or execution. Therefore, if the US Supreme Court rules for the DA and overturns this ruling, Mumia can then be executed without having a new penalty-phase jury trial. The DA will submit their petition by Nov. 19, 2008.

STOP THE PRO-WALL STREET NAZI FASCISM OF THE MCCARTHYITE MCCAIN – PALIN HORSE!

Doug Cupertino | Like the Nazis the Republican campaign is spreading phobia against Marxism to cover up the Republican and Reaganite coddling of Wall Street capitalism, profiteering and deregulation and for the Bush-Paulsen-McCain bailout of Wall Street. Time to stop politicians plumbing out bail-out profits for Wall Street capitalism! Time for real, socialist, Marxist change! more...  0 Comments
