Hoipolloi Cassidy | The head of one of the major far-right parties in France, Philippe de Villiers, was booted out of a mass demonstration called to protest the brutal murder of a young Jew, Ilan Halimi. As many as 200,000 may have attended - and 400,000 boots in the butt is a bunch of boot.

cleaves | The famous Shiite Askariyah shrine (Golden Mosque) in Iraq has been targeted and destroyed but by whom remains unclear at this stage. Regardless of the intentions of those responsible, one dramatic (and historically consistent) point cuts through the hysteria and mayhem. That of the importance (or otherwise) of sites that are deemed sacred or holy and the 'location' of this attribution in human consciousness and/or human societies/groups. Social history records naturally occurring phenomena, rocks, rivers etc; structures built by men, temples, obelisks etc; cyclic astronomical phenomena, eclipses, comets etc, all of which have been attributed by humans with special significance at one time or another, whereas none of the produced or naturally occurring phenomenon are ‘holy’ or ‘sacred’. more... 0 Comments
Clayton Hallmark | The US and European governments dare to deny this smoking-gun photographic evidence. The CIA has been sneaking its prisoners in and out of Europe on cargo transport planes. The US says the planes carry "embassy cargo." European governments pretend to believe them -- and never inspect the planes. But, "Who you gonna believe, them or your lying eyes?" Just look at the photograph. See your flag? See your Stars and Stripes, Old Glory? See the MPs? See the prisoners? All of them (prisoners) are INNOCENT! Innocent until proven guilty, remember? They haven't even been legally arrested. What you see here, though, IS crime in progress. Kidnapping. Torture.
Akbayan Citizens' Action Party | The worst fear of the Filipino people has come to pass. The bogus government of Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, in a bid to stifle the legitimate grievances of the citizens of the Philippines and pre-empt the moves of rebellious factions within the Armed Forces, has seen it fit to impose a state of emergency, under Presidential Decree 1017! Soon after the emergency was declared, demonstrations to commemorate the first People Power uprising of 1986, being held in several parts of Metro Manila were violently dispersed by the police.

Jason Gooljar | Reading about the abuse that the Mexican people have endured from neoliberal policies in maqiladora factories you wonder if there is any hope at all left. For those who do not know, a "maqiladora" is a factory that assembles imported US parts then sends them back to the US. It is truly disgusting, that is the only word I have for such a device devised by greedy capitalist pigs. more... 0 Comments

peptide | Arab fighters and insurgents have demonstrated to the world that the US is a ‘superpower’ in name only. A poorly armed and trained but highly motivated and dedicated band of fighters has exposed the US military as weak, inept, unskilled, brutal and bereft. From South America to the Himalayas, resistance against capitalist plunder and exploitation signals the inevitable failure of militaristic capitalism. Regardless of all other considerations people today have confirmed that they will fight any aggressor who threatens their homes, families and way of life. more... 0 Comments
Bryan G. Pfeifer | "....Trying to broaden respect for peoples’ right to self-determination within the world and trying to deal with oppression is something that is starting to happen now. The emergence of the realignment of the Black liberation movement is very important and it has the experiences and the lessons that the broader movement can learn from within an internationalist context...." -- Professor Tony Van Der Meer
