HELP PUT AN ANTI-WAR RADICAL IN CONGRESS!

Antiwar4Barron | Unbowed and unapologetic, Barron is the most radical member of the NYC Council, and the most consistent ally of the antiwar movement holding any elected office in New York and anywhere else. Barron led the fight to bar military recruiters from NYC public schools, and he has never hesitated to publicly support Venezuela, Cuba, and (especially critical right now) the Palestinian people. more...  3 Comments

¡Detengamos la ofensiva israelí sobre Palestina y el Líbano!

Fracción Trotskista - Cuarta Internacional | Pero, el elemento que puede alterar significativamente la relación de fuerzas y hacer fracasar los planes del Estado Mayor más poderoso, como es el Ejército sionista, es el hecho de que una intensificación aún mayor de su ofensiva en el Líbano puede incitar a la movilización de las masas de Medio Oriente, que durante semanas vienen viendo los bombardeos, el sitio y el castigo colectivo a que son sometidas las masas palestinas en Gaza, lo que ha incrementado el odio y el ánimo de venganza hacia el Estado sionista. También, aunque todavía en forma muy minoritaria, comienza a despertar al movimiento pacifista israelí, cuestión que puede crecer si siguen los costos no sólo sufridos por su ejército (formado en buena medida por soldados conscriptos) sino también por la población civil, si el gobierno israelí no logra detener rápidamente los bombardeos de misiles sobre sus centros poblados. more...  0 Comments

Shifting Values and the New Barbarism

finn | The attention of the world has once again been drawn to the Middle East, to a group of waring tribes. Today however, we witness a ‘new’ warfare, a type promoted by the Zionists Richard Perle and Paul Wolfowitz. This new warfare is a composite ‘solution’, an amalgam of the permanent revolution/war doctrine of Lev Bronstein (Trotsky); the tactics of Henry Kissinger (carpet bomber of three million innocent Indo-Chinese civilians) and Leo Strauss, whose exclusivist/elitist philosophy lies behind the events of 9/11, the anthrax letters and the rise of ‘terrorism’ – the new public enemy designed to replace the defunct bogeyman of communism! more...  1 Comments

US Senate Race: Hawkins Calls for Ceasefire; Clinton Says Bombs Away to Israel

Howie Hawkins | Howie Hawkins, the Green Party candidate for US Senate for New York, said today the US government should use its leadership to affect an immediate cease-fire in the Middle East. He criticized the Bush administration’s unconditional support of Israel’s military attacks on the civilian populations in Gaza and Lebanon. “We are in a strong diplomatic position to pressure Israel into heeding a cease-fire by warning US funding to Israel will be cut completely if they don’t comply,” says Hawkins. “We must halt this disaster and the killings of innocent civilians before it gets deadlier,” Hawkins appealed.

Voting rights under attack across US

Eula Holmes | A determined effort is under way in numerous states across the US to further restrict ballot access and voting rights. Despite the theft of the 2000 presidential election by George W. Bush and his installation in the White House by the US Supreme Court, and allegations of voter disenfranchisement in Ohio and other states during the 2004 election, there has been no effort made to defend voters’ rights.
On the contrary, moves are afoot in a number of states to further restrict the constitutionally protected right to vote. This assault has taken two major forms. First, state governments are passing laws requiring individuals to present additional identification when they vote. Second, a number of state governments are enacting legislation placing strict limits on voter registration drives.
In the vast majority of cases, the new regulations are being pushed by state legislators who claim they want to curb voter fraud. In reality, the restrictions are aimed at denying the right to vote—and are disproportionately targeted at the poor, minorities and the elderly. more...  0 Comments

The Inconvenient Truth About Al Gore: Systems, Saviors and the Need for Action

repost from Revolution | "In the promotion of Al Gore around the issue of the environment, and in contrast to the burying of his January speech on the back pages of mainstream news, the forces that control such things are defining what is and what is not allowable discourse and debate on the direction of society and the world. These terms cannot be accepted." more...  0 Comments
