gade | The US Supreme Court ruled today that Guantanamo Bay detention/torture centre was illegal (by implication) and the kangaroo military commission established to try the detainees is in breach of the Geneva Convention, well duh! Expert international lawyers stated the plain facts – illegality – of the matter from the start. Who could accuse the ‘slow to see daylight’ US court system of bias? Surely the principal pillars of American ‘justice’ could not be influenced by Bush or his neo-cons? more... 0 Comments

Dave Lindorff | The president has made a joke out of congress by his unbridled use of “signing statements” to invalidate laws. If Congress won’t stand up to this usurpation, it is signing its own, and the Constitution’s, death warrant.
Jess Garman | A huge crowd of angry tenants chanted for no increases this year as the NYC Rent Guidelines Board held their final meeting tonight in the basement of the Cooper Union Meeting Hall. Fed up with the unfair manor in which the meeting was held, the activists slowly walked out of the auditorium, not caring what was being said anymore, but satisfied that at least they had made their voices heard. As for the RGB, it approved this city's [second] [correction -ed.] largest rent hikes in 15 years: 4.25% for one-year leases and 7.25% for two-year leases. || RGB: Rent Gouging Bastards || Home Rule Saves Homes more... 18 Comments
Bennett Baumer | At a sleepy June 1 Rent Guidelines Board (RGB) meeting, a few tenant advocates sat idly while the board’s two tenant members made a resolution in support of home rule. Though Mayor Bloomberg is tepidly against the issue – restoring power over rent and eviction laws to city council – no one could foresee how the mayor’s appointed board chairman Marvin Markus would react.

The report stated that Howard was “visibly shocked” by the unexpected encounter, which obviously was intended to deliver a clear message; the Indonesian President is not known for taking early morning walks, we can therefore conclude that his gesture was calculated. more... 0 Comments

Milton D'Leon | There is no revolution without a social revolution carried out by workers, peasants and the poor, by expropriating the big capitalists and instituting a planned economy, eliminating capitalist monopolies, instituting state control over the fundamental economic activities of the country, with political power in the hands of the working class. To speak of revolution, except in this sense, is merely empty talk. more... 0 Comments

Dave Lindorff | Impeachment can play a vital role in building resistance to dictatorship, both in the electoral politics and on the street. It’s not an either/or proposition.
