The Senate and the real John Roberts: Workers World editorial

Workers World | The hearings are being conducted by millionaires on the Senate Judiciary Committee, most of whom are lawyers and are about as far away from the workers and the oppressed as the moon. They allow Roberts to not answer questions. They let him plead in case after case involving his reactionary writings, arguments or rulings that he was just working for an administration or a client. This is equivalent to the argument that every low-level indicted war criminal makes: “I was just following orders.” more...  0 Comments

John H.o.W.A.R.d line roars at Fascism Week

Propaganda Monster | Embellishments of all kinds -- detention, deportation, fines -- were evident on the dogwalks this week, as were masculine details such as ASIO, security risk, threats and new anti-liberty laws. Even those signs came off more like criminogenic intellectual slavery and less harsh than the nasty, over-the -top feelings of many suspected terrorists detained last season. That's a joke son! more...  0 Comments

rachel | The International Solidarity Movement's New York City support group (ISM-NYC) will be holding a training in NYC on Saturday and Sunday, October 1st and 2nd from 12:00 - 5:00 each day for activists who plan to go to Palestine this autumn for the Olive Harvest with ISM or with other non-violent direct action groups. The call for international volunteers to come to Palestine from October 15- November 15 for the Olive Harvest was issued by Palestinian farmers and agricultural organizations, in coordination with the International Solidarity Movement and the International Women's Peace Service. International and Israeli volunteers join Palestinians each year to harvest olives, in spite of efforts by Israeli settlers, soldiers and bulldozers to destroy this vital piece of Palestinian life. The presence of internationals during harvest time has proven in the past to help limit and decrease the severity of attacks.
