Socialist Equality Party on the ballot in NY Senate race

SEP reporter |
The Socialist Equality Party has succeeded in placing its candidate for US Senate, Bill Van Auken, on the ballot in New York for the November 7 election, having filed petitions bearing the signatures of nearly 25,000 of the state’s voters.

The petitions, filed on August 22, were accepted by the state as valid, and the Democratic Party and its candidate, incumbent Senator Hillary Clinton, chose not to challenge the nomination, as the Democratic machine has done in other states. The official deadline for filing such a challenge expired three days after the petitions were submitted. more...  1 Comments

Editorial Cartoon: A Year After Katrina (corrected repost)

Mike Flugennock | (sorry for the repost, the server lost my images on the first one) This idea slammed head-on into my brain after reading little bits of Dubya's speech on the Katrina anniversary, after seeing the montage of drowning victims in Spike Lee's documentary, and after reading in various news reports that a year after the hurricane, corpses were still being found. more...  0 Comments

Move-On Backs Down, Sponsors Tasini vs. Clinton Poll

Tasini Up! | After months of stonewalling, Moveon.org is sponsoring a member poll that pits Hillary Clinton vs. anti-war insurgent Jonathan Tasini.

In the latest Indypendent, Nicholas Allanach wrote that "Sen. Hillary Clinton caught a break – if an incumbent with a war chest of tens of millions in corporate money needed one – when NY1 cancelled her debate with antiwar challenger Jonathan Tasini." || Indypendent Coverage: The Antiwar Electoral Insurgency || Alternet: Move On and Hillary Clinton || Anti-War.Com: Move-On Makes Peace with War || Tasini For New York more...  3 Comments

GRANITO DE ARENA (2006)

www.times-up.org | For over 20 years, global economic forces have been dismantling public education in Mexico, but always in the constant shadow of popular resistance... Granito de Arena is the story of that resistance – the story of hundreds of thousands of public schoolteachers whose grassroots, non-violent movement took Mexico by surprise, and who have endured brutal repression in their 25-year struggle for social and economic justice in Mexico's public schools.

Armitage is the Leaker, but not the Story: Black Ops and War Lies

Dave Lindorff | The corporate media have focused on the outing of Plame but are ignoring the real story: why was the administration so focused and intent upon destroying Plame and her ambassador husband? The answer leads to a dark crime of lies and black ops aimed at promoting a pointless war in Iraq at all costs. more...  1 Comments

Antiteror $ Spent Policing Critical Mass

reZz | Critical Mass in Manhattan on August 25th kicked off much like similar rides in Paris, Japan, San Francisco or Brooklyn. About 150 cyclists gathered in Union Square to the tune of marching band music, uniformed dancers and a speech marking the anniversary of hurricane Katrina. About five minutes into the ride, it seemed to be more of a memorial to the first amendment right to free assembly. The ride was quickly halved in number as phalanxes of cops rode into the group on spanking new mini scooters, grabbed people from their bikes and …. gave them traffic tickets. more...  4 Comments

Katrina, one year later

Fred Bergen | We revolutionaries insist that black liberation, including the conquest of full democratic rights for blacks in the US, can only be achieved through socialist revolution. It is hopeless and naïve to expect the US government to "rebuild for democracy". The face of US capitalist "democracy" was unmasked by Hurricane Katrina, and it's not going to get any prettier. more...  0 Comments
