By James Petras | In the Great Contest between Chavez and Bush, between national-popular welfare initiatives and the reactionary regressive neo-liberal status quo, there is no question that Chavez is winning and the US is losing influence.
E. SAN JUAN, Jr. | Over 850 extra-judicial killings of Filipinos from all walks of life have been committed by the military, police, and paramilitary thugs under the Arroyo regime in the Philippines, with the support of the Bush administration. These crimes have been condemned by Amnesty International, UN Special Rapporteurs, Asian Commission on Human Rights, and other international bodies. The following article provides a background to the March session of the Permanent People's Tribunal at The Hague examining the appeals of various Filipino organizations concerning the humanitarian crisis in the Philippines, in particular, the violence of State terrorism and de facto martial law gripping this U.S. neocolony. more... 0 Comments

Sam Alcoff | For three hours on Friday night, over 100 activists came out to Manhattan's Community Church of New York in support of eight recently arrested veteran members of the Black Panther Party. Yet the night skipped any mourning or weariness as host Lumumba Bandele of the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement quickly pledged both a new wave of activism to free these activists as well as a resurgence in the movement to free all political prisoners: the crowd's prolonged response suggested a willingness to fight. more... 18 Comments

Cleaves Eds via fleet | An Australian son abandoned by the nation and his government has decided to fight the fabricated charges brought against him by the criminal Bush regime. You bloody little bewdy! Against all odds and after years of psychological and physical torture Hicks proves his mettle. The murdering yanks and the slimy Howard government COULDN’T BREAK OUR LITTLE AUSSIE FIGHTER! One can only imagine the forlorn faces of the Howard servile government who no doubt desperately hoped that Hicks would break and accept a plea bargain in time for the elections. The Hicks case as previously stated has all the ingredients to bring down the servile government of John ‘deputy-sheriff’ Howard. more... 0 Comments

Paul O'Hanlon | Does anyone care about the plight of Iraq’s refugees? Iraqis are rapidly becoming the world’s biggest refugee group. One person in eight has been forced to flee their homes as a result of their `liberation`. It would be the equivalent of the whole population of a city like London or a state like California being forced to take flight. Yet little or none of the suffering of Iraqi civilians reaches the mainstream media. more... 0 Comments

Alegria Concepcion | Two new books by noted Filipino author E. SAN JUAN, Jr. seek to explore the predicament of millions of Filipinos leaving the Philippines and working or settling in other countries. An unprecedented 9-10 million of 87 million Filipinos are scattered around the planet. Their huge remittance props up a sharply divided class society where a tiny oligarchy (supported by Washington/Pentagon) exploits and oppresses the majority. Over 830 victims of extrajudicial killings occurred from 2001 to the present under Arroyo's corrupt, illegitimate regime. Why is this happening? Are you contributing to the pain and suffering? more... 0 CommentsPage 117 | Page 115
