U.S. Military Has Killed 127-238,000 Iraqi Civilians

Dave Lindorff | Most of the media have missed the main point about the Johns Hopkins/Lancet study of deaths caused by the U.S. invasion. Certainly it’s true that many of those deaths have been caused by Iraqi insurgents, civil war fighters and criminals, but nearly a third of them—nearly all civilians and a high proportion children--were the direct result of U.S. weapons fire.

Rose Colored Glasses: A New & Unique Public Education & Deprogramming Video Series.

RCG Webmaster | I had two goals when making this series. To make a permanent historical record of these dark times, AND to make these videos available as cheap and easily mass-produced Super VCD's for apathetic and uninformed people to be able to watch on their Televisions. It is my hope that activists might use them as tools to educate and to inspire the populace. more...  0 Comments

Community Groups Denounce Continued Proposed Privatization of Randall's Island

Well informed, poetic famous Writer | Community groups are outraged over a plan that would allow private schools
from the Upper East Side to dominate ball fields on Randalls Island. Under a
proposed agreement between the Parks Department and a group of Manhattan
private schools, more than 30 fields will be for their exclusive use.

"Here we go again. With the proposed destruction of park land that the
private water park would require, the Administration is scrambling for
schemes to make up for it. This is an unfortunate indication of how out of
touch they are. more...  1 Comments

Working Class Emancipation | We revolutionaries are for the unconditional defense of North Korea,
because the post-World-War-II liberation of Korea destroyed capitalism

The Mark Foley scandal: Where is the crime?

Fred Bergen | It is the capitalists and their parties who politicize sex. They claim
to be defending the innocent and vulnerable, but anyone who has seen the
pictures from Abu Ghraib prison knows that this government doesn't give
a damn about sexual torture and molestation. Their real intent is to
persecute anyone who strays outside the completely artificial bounds
prescribed by the patriarchal, heterosexual bourgeois family, and in the
process arrogate to themselves ever greater police powers. more...  3 Comments

A Columbia Student's Thoughts on the Minutemen Protests

Columbia Sophomore | Last week, Columbia students rushed the stage to interrupt Minutemen founder Jim Gilchrist's speech. They have been roundly condemned by the campus and national media for doing so.
