HELP PUT AN ANTI-WAR RADICAL IN CONGRESS!

Antiwar4Barron | Unbowed and unapologetic, Barron is the most radical member of the NYC Council, and the most consistent ally of the antiwar movement holding any elected office in New York and anywhere else. Barron led the fight to bar military recruiters from NYC public schools, and he has never hesitated to publicly support Venezuela, Cuba, and (especially critical right now) the Palestinian people. more...  3 Comments

¡Detengamos la ofensiva israelí sobre Palestina y el Líbano!

Fracción Trotskista - Cuarta Internacional | Pero, el elemento que puede alterar significativamente la relación de fuerzas y hacer fracasar los planes del Estado Mayor más poderoso, como es el Ejército sionista, es el hecho de que una intensificación aún mayor de su ofensiva en el Líbano puede incitar a la movilización de las masas de Medio Oriente, que durante semanas vienen viendo los bombardeos, el sitio y el castigo colectivo a que son sometidas las masas palestinas en Gaza, lo que ha incrementado el odio y el ánimo de venganza hacia el Estado sionista. También, aunque todavía en forma muy minoritaria, comienza a despertar al movimiento pacifista israelí, cuestión que puede crecer si siguen los costos no sólo sufridos por su ejército (formado en buena medida por soldados conscriptos) sino también por la población civil, si el gobierno israelí no logra detener rápidamente los bombardeos de misiles sobre sus centros poblados. more...  0 Comments

Shifting Values and the New Barbarism

finn | The attention of the world has once again been drawn to the Middle East, to a group of waring tribes. Today however, we witness a ‘new’ warfare, a type promoted by the Zionists Richard Perle and Paul Wolfowitz. This new warfare is a composite ‘solution’, an amalgam of the permanent revolution/war doctrine of Lev Bronstein (Trotsky); the tactics of Henry Kissinger (carpet bomber of three million innocent Indo-Chinese civilians) and Leo Strauss, whose exclusivist/elitist philosophy lies behind the events of 9/11, the anthrax letters and the rise of ‘terrorism’ – the new public enemy designed to replace the defunct bogeyman of communism! more...  1 Comments

1500 New Yorkers Demand End to Israel's Attacks on Lebanon and Palestine

The demonstration concluded with a spirited march past Grand Central Station and into Times Square.

Fighting For New Orleans: Common Ground Collective and New Orleans Worker Coalition Hit NYC

Jess Garman | With the year anniversary of Katrina less than two months away, two organizations made it clear that the city of New Orleans still needs help. For the Common Ground Collective and the New Orleans Worker Justice Coalition, the work has just begun, though they have both helped thousands of families, there are thousands more to go. “Across the city, workers are living in abandoned cars, working in toxic conditions, chasing after a web of subcontractors for their wages, and running from police and immigration authorities who have intensified their enforcement efforts while labor law enforcement is lax” ( http://neworleansworkerjustice.org/). Many former New Orleans inhabitants are forced to live on low wages and cannot find employment in the cities where they have since sought refuge. In addition, those who attempt to return find that they have no schools and no housing. This is why, both organizations felt the need to come out yesterday and spread the word that they are thriving, but need our help to keep on doing what they do. more...  1 Comments

(Utica): Hawkins for US Senate: Impeach Cheney

Howie Hawkins | Vice-President Dick Cheney should be impeached by Congress, along with President Bush, for lying and lawbreaking. The Articles of Impeachment should cover for areas of high crimes and misdemeanors: warrantless surveillance, misleading Congress on the reasons for the Iraq war, violating laws against torture, and subverting the Constitution's separation of powers. Cheney provided false information to the American public and Congress as reasons for invading Iraq and then actively promoted war crimes involving the use of torture in carrying out the occupation of Iraq. He has violated the prohibition against wars of aggression in Chapter 1, Article 2 of the United Nations Charter. more...  0 Comments
