Pot Cultivation in Today’s America

barra | It’s Official, marijuana represents the USA’s most lucrative locally grown product – at $200 billion/annum, corn, wheat and potatoes are chicken feed. While U.S. borders seep various powdered imports it’s good ol’ home grown pot that makes the bankers smile. The USA is drowning in contraband and the negative social ramifications of the neo-PROHIBITION of unenlightened conservative beliefs – when will they ever learn? more...  0 Comments

Chavez gets more radical

Jorge Martin | “For this new era we need a political instrument at the service of the Revolution and socialism”

In an event called on Friday 15, at the Teresa Carreño Theatre in Caracas, to celebrate the election victory and congratulate those who had made it possible, Chavez made a very important speech about the new phase the Bolivarian Revolution has reached. The whole speech was one blow after another against the right wing of the Bolivarian movement, which has spent the last two weeks since the elections calling for conciliation with the opposition, and was enthusiastically received by the thousands of revolutionary activists present at the Theatre and the hundreds of thousands who watch the speech on national TV.

He started by celebrating the election victory and stressing that it was a victory of the Venezuelan people "the first that should be congratulated and the owner of the victory", explaining that his role was one of being "always a tool of the will of the people". more...  0 Comments

World's Worst Culture of Organized Pre-Election Killing Sprees Worsens Further

Ernesto E. Barraquias Jr. | In the years and months that led to the most hotly contested national elections in the Philippines in May 2004, Ernest Barraquias Jr. and his then 8 year old nephew dependent Richswaze Barraquias suffered unimaginable horrors as virtual hostages and victims of organized crime groups that include erring high-level public officials. He now calls the world's attention to help put a stop to widespread election-related violence and bloodshed. Already, public officials are being assassinated in the midst of unsolved murders of persons known to be allied to the leftist groups or so. more...  1 Comments

Close Torture Bay

Eds | January 11, 2007 -- Citizens to target illegal Detention Centre

The world today is in no doubt as to the criminal status of the illegal detention centre of Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The past three years have not only witnessed unprecedented assaults on the founding principles of the USA by the Bush regime, but also on international law and convention. The government of the USA is clearly rogue, a fact in which its officials delight. The contempt the neo-cons display for their own citizens is only exceeded by the extreme disdain they exhibit toward the international community. Each day that Guantanamo Bay remains operational is a day of unspeakable psychological horror, torture and injustice. more...  0 Comments

Thousands march in New York to protest police killing

Sandy English | Thousands of people marched down New York’s Fifth Avenue and across 34th Street on Saturday, nine days before Christmas and one of the busiest shopping days of the year, to protest the police murder of Sean Bell and the serious wounding of two others in the borough of Queens on November 25.

The turnout for what was billed as a silent protest clearly exceeded the expectations of the police, who had set aside barricades to confine the marchers to one traffic lane. The throng quickly took over nearly the entire width of both Fifth Avenue and 34th Street, passing upscale stores like Bergdorf Goodman and Saks Fifth Avenue, along with St. Patrick’s Cathedral and Rockefeller Center, ending outside of Macy’s. more...  0 Comments

CCNY Snitch Sergey: Leader of the ProtestWarrior 101st Fighting Keyboardists (IDF Edition)

Modern Pitung | Not too long ago, Sergey "the Snitch" Kadinsky -- the bigot whose letter to The Daily News touched off the faux-controversy over the Morales/Shakur Community and Student Center -- came by these parts (among other sites covering the controversy) to drop some linkspam for his shitty Xanga blog. Doing some research, I've found Sergey Kadinsky has amassed quite a backlog of garbage under his online pseudonym, "Mazeartist". more...  1 Comments

America on the Brink of Anarchy

he Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan | Without an advocate for the poor, without a new state of mind in America, the country lies on the brink of anarchy. Anarchy is the complete absence of government. It’s a condition of political disorder, violence and lawlessness in the society. We saw signs of it in Los Angeles after the Rodney King verdict. more...  2 Comments
