Where have all the fighters gone?

Juan Gonzalez | In this passionate analysis, Juan Gonzalez writes:

"I have been amazed at the virtual absence of dispassionate and comprehensive analysis about this election; an analysis grounded in facts, one that places the conflict in the context of broader historical patterns, that consistently asks: what is in the best interest of working people and the marginalized or oppressed groups of New York City? Once you begin to look at the mayoral race from that deeper perspective, you begin to realize that there have been few times in recent memory when an urban electorate faced such a clear class choice – in the personalities of the candidates, their stands on the issues, and the forces they represent. more...  13 Comments

The Bush Administration has sought to address Human Rights in the same way that it has addressed global warming.The first step is to remove the data from the government website.

At the end of this article are links where you can retrieve and archive sections of the US State Department website that may soon disappear.
By congressional mandate, the US State Department publishes human rights records of the nations of the world that we recognize as sovereign states. This practice has ended with the departure of Colin Powell in the wake of the US sponsored coup in Haiti. This quote from the US website should shock you,even if the quote above failed:

The State Department web site below is a permanent electronic archive of information released prior to January 20, 2001. Please see for material released since President George W. Bush took office on that date. This site is not updated so external links may no longer function.
US Department of State

The whole world is watching, and continues to document the degradation of human rights that distinguishes the Bush administration. more...  0 Comments
