After French elections : capitalism and imperialism are the « danger »

Géraldine | Appeals against so-called « fascism » in France because of the election of Nicolas Sarkozy are demagogic and misleading. Sarkozy is not more « dangerous » than Ségolène Royal would have been. The SYSTEM is the « danger ». Royal supports the euro-militarist strategy of François Bayrou, and was willing to prevent Iran from developing CIVIL nuclear technology. Furthermore, the French « left » is not well known abroad. Even young French ignore what « their left » really is. more...  96 Comments

Buying the War on Palestinians: The US Media, The New York Times & Israel

Patrick O'Connor | After four disastrous years of US military occupation, Bill Moyers’ April 25th PBS special “Buying the War” attempted to hold the mainstream US media accountable for its complicity in selling the war on Iraq to the US public. Moyers documented how the US media, with The New York Times in a leading role, bowed to financial and political pressure, succumbed to an environment of patriotism and fear of terrorism, and uncritically reported false US government claims. Tragically, despite the terrible consequences of 60 years of Israeli oppression of the Palestinian people, there is still no significant movement to hold the US mainstream media accountable for a similar, dramatic failure in covering Israel and Palestine, and for its complicity in the US’ uncritical support for Israel.

GOP Convention Papers Detailing Repression of Dissent Ordered Opened

Associated Press | It will be interesting to see if the city wins on appeal, or if the American public - and the world - will have a window into policies and tactics used by the police during the 2004 convention.
There are those among us who actually remember what it was to exercize free speech during a political convention before the advent of the so-called "free speech zones".
