Revolution or Misapprehension

cleaves | The people’s movement in LA, France, Thailand, China, Philippines, the South Americas etc., verifies a power dynamic outlined in an earlier paper:

“…the erosion and final dissolution of power concentrated in specific locations is rapidly occurring today. The ultra-right/left authoritarian contractionism we witness today is symptomatic of its failure to harmoniously engage the greater (world) dynamic. The ‘greater’ the contractionism/antagonism the greater attraction it creates for precisely those forces and conditions that would equalise it [dispersion] in the broader world context.” more...  0 Comments

Free Speech & Dissent on Campus in the Age of the 'War on Terror'

Brian Kelly | Given Pace University's threatened expulsion of two students for using their constitutionally guaranteed Right to Free Speech, Press and Assembly, and the continuing resistance of Pace administration to recognize two student clubs, Campus Anti-War Network and Students for a Democratic Society the time for a discussion of free speech on campus couldn't be more urgent.

Furthermore, with the climate of fear generated by the 'War on Terror', the Bush Administration's justification for the use of torture, unlimited detention without trial of any non-citizen and illegal spying on domestic groups and individuals, the renewal of the PATRIOT Act, the vilification of Arabs and Muslims and political repression at other campuses around the country, there is a national dimension to this urgent discussion. more...  0 Comments

2nd try: Hands off Sudan

carst | Bush talks like Goodman. An internationalist who fights for freedom and liberty, democracy and human rights worldwide, so that there may be peace in the end. Many make the point that Bush doesn't mean what he says, but who does? But what most conveniently ignore is, that the Bush propaganda team precisely targeted fundamental contradictions within the left. We more or less agree with spreading democracy and liberating the world from tyrannies. Just we disagree with the means being used and targets being chosen. Moreover, even with the target selection there is much common ground. more...  6 Comments

Enemy Mine

Sarah Stuteville | We’re in a known minefield in the forest, perhaps one Aki Ra laid himself, and he’s scratching intently at the hardened clay earth with a hatchet. It takes him 20 minutes to locate the first mine, laying casually on the forest floor roughly 200 feet from Chrun’s only source of water. It looks like a small green plastic toy, and it’s hard to imagine that it’s powerful enough to kill or maim.

Embers of Empire: Blair in Oz

colt | Blair’s speech in Oz parliament today was notable for its familiarity – nothing new, same ol’ same ol’ shite. Wait! I think there was something that may have been a Freudian slip in reverse, Blair pleaded with a crumbling support base not to ostracise the yanks as they may “lift their drawbridge” (what a laugh). In order to survive, the voracious beast of Capitalism MUST feed off weaker nations, destroy the environment, wreak havoc and wage war to sustain its (military) economy. The world needs America like it needs a hole in the head; by all means Tony, let the yanks implode on themselves; allow the blood-sucking star-spangled-fangs to sink into its own neck; it would be a most entertaining spectacle. more...  0 Comments
