by AJLPP-USA | The Alliance for a Just and Lasting Peace in the Philippines (AJLPP) joins hundreds of thousands of protesters in hundreds of cities and towns across the United States and all over the world to mark the fourth anniversary of the U.S. war and occupation of Iraq and the 40th year of the protest march at the Pentagon during the Vietnam War in 1967. Four years after George W. Bush hastily declared the war to be “over,” more than 3,200 U.S. soldiers, 650,000 Iraqis have died and hundreds of thousands including more than 30,000 American veterans maimed in an ongoing brutal war and occupation which was premised on lies. Onboard that aircraft carrier Lincoln,Bush said that he would make the Philippines the “model of democracy” for Iraq. But to Filipinos, it meant the death of 840 social activist, 200 misssing and the jailing of 200 patriots including two congressmen: Satur Ocampo and labor leader Crispin Beltran who were stripped of their parliamentary immunity.

Ben | NOON :: 3/15/07 :: TELL THE WORLD WE WANT PACE'S IMMEDIATE RESIGNATION
JOSEPH GOLDSTEIN | Police Officer Kenneth Boss once was part of a group of officers who fired 41 shots at an innocent Muslim, Amadou Diallo. Gunning down another Muslim in Iraq last year as part of the Marine Corps whetted his appetite for more Muslim blood.

By Scott Wilson/Washington Post | Ilan Pappe, one of the revisionist scholars known in Israel as the "new historians," began his career in some of the same wartime archives as Benny Morris. But his own ideological journey has taken him to the far shore of Israel's political gulf and nearly complete isolation.

thomas paine | If you were in NYC during the RNC, or know someone who was, and witnessed the fascist preemptive mass arrests, you know the truth. The cops - brass - and civilian commanders - the Mayor - should be charged for civil rights offenses. Such contempt for the law by law enforcement and high officials should not be allowed to pass without a response.
