Illegal: US Supreme Court’s ruling of Torture Bay

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

Congress is Derelict: Replace It With People Who Take Their Oaths Seriously

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.

RGB Final Hearing Shut Down For Four Hours By Tennant Protests

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

RGB: Rent Gouging Bastards

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.

John Howard in Asia

peptide | John Howard was ‘surprised’ when he encountered the president of Indonesia, while taking his early morning walk in Jakarta, reported News Radio Australia. 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

The Venezuela of Chávez

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.

The International Socialist Organization and the 2006 election

By Bill Van Auken | The International Socialist Organization is holding a conference this weekend in New York City under the slogan “Socialism 2006—Build the Left, Fight the Right.”

An examination of the perspective upon which this gathering has been organized, however, makes clear that it is aimed at promoting a “left” variety of bourgeois politics, in the form of the Green Party, which can serve only to divert a mass movement that arises against the right-wing policies of the two major parties and lead it into a political dead end.

The ISO conference advances no independent policy for the working class in the 2006 midterm elections, which are less than five months away. The organization’s newspaper, Socialist Worker, warns regularly against orienting the protest movements in which the ISO participates to the Democratic Party, yet the ISO is mounting no direct political challenge to the Democrats. more...  4 Comments
