Harry Bowman | The letter by "Casino Jack" Abramoff to President Omar Bongo of Gabon mentions a neighboring African nation and a man named "Roger" not identified in the Washington Post report. The nation may be Equatorial Guinea and "Roger" may be known crony Roger Stone. Interestingly, Stone was involved in a fraudulent anti-casino effort similar to the one perpetrated by Abramoff and Bush Southeast regional campaign director Ralph Reed. The letter may be part of a similar attempt to extract money from persons with business before the US government. more... 0 Comments

Fred Goldstein | The working class leadership in France has been weak on this question and downright reactionary at times. Right now they need to stop retreating. They must not confine themselves to mere protests against reactionary measures of repression. They need to demand that all the cops be withdrawn, that the emergency decrees be revoked. They need to come out for the justified rebellion.
Juan Cole | A lot of the persons living in the urban outer cities (a better translation of cite than "suburb") are from subsaharan Africa. And there are lots of Eastern European immigrants. The riots were sparked by the deaths of African youths, not Muslims. Singling out the persons of Muslim heritage is just a form of bigotry. Moreover, French youth of European heritage rioted quite extensively in 1968. As they had in 1789. Rioting in the streets is not a foreign custom. It has a French genealogy and context. more... 1 Comments

In our Hearts | We carry a new world here, in our hearts. That world is growing this minute.The United States needs a constant, fresh supply of recruits in order to maintain its current wars, and even more if it wants to expand. Recruiters use every dirty trick in the book (including downright lies) to fool poor people here in the US into joining the military and helping the government exploit and oppress poor people in foreign lands. By denying the government the bodies needed to wage war, we are denying it the ability to fight wars. more... 49 Comments

FIERCE! | Hey everyone, check out the new resident proposal on the table to blockade the entrance to Christopher St. once the Pier closes at 1am. The proposal is looking to force LGBT youth to walk up or down the West Side Highway (similar to corralling cattle) to 14th St. or to Houston St. to get to the nearest train. This is because residents dont want LGBT youth walking through the residential area of the West Village once the Pier closes. more... 11 Comments
