Protest Henry Kissinger and Colombian President Alvaro Uribe (Union Killer!) at NYU -- Thursday, 6 PM

SALVADOR ALLENDE TE QUEREMOS | This panel, ominously named "New Political Policies
for the Americas" is no
neutral "dialogue" about the way forward for the
people of South America.
NYU is giving the stage to Kissinger and Uribe to lay
out neoliberal
policy--policy that has and continues to open the way
for union-busting,
corporate dominance and manipulation by predatory
lending agencies. It is
no surprise that NYU gives a voice to such characters,
because here at NYU
the administration follows the same policy of busting
unions for corporate
gain.

WOT - (NYT) Chinese Government attempts to censor internet news of Dongzhou massacre (with comments by Ben Seattle)

Ben Seattle - Weapon of Transparency (WOT) | As described by the New York Times article (below) the
corrupt, revisionist (ie: fake marxist) government of China
is attempting to censor all news of last week's massacre
of 20 or more farmers in Dongzhou, in southern China.

This attempt to suppress news of this massacre may (or may not)
be successful in the short run. But, in the long run, these
kinds of attempts to suppress the news are doomed to failure.
This story is of great significance to activists today who
want to build a powerful and militant mass movement for a world
that is not ruled by imperialism and the bourgeoisie. more...  0 Comments
