Pro-War Hillary Clinton, What Are The Alternatives?

Steven Argue | Hillary Clinton has voted for every war the United States has carried out since she came into office in 2000, including the Iraq war. She also voted to take away our civil liberties by supporting the “Patriot Act” and its renewal. Hillary Clinton, like many Democrats, has also pounded the war drum for the racist Zionist state of Israel even louder than the Republicans. In addition she voted for the anti-immigrant wall. So what are the alternatives?

Picket in Support of Irish Political Prisoners - Tommorrow!

National Irish Freedom Committee | Irish Republican Political Prisoners in Maghaberry jail have been on protest since the June 19. They have issued five demands. These are:

* Free association
* Freedom of movement
* The right to full-time education
* Separate visiting facilities
* The right to organise their own landings
have declared that their resolve is strong, and that all attempts at criminalisation will fail. They have undertaken 24-hour, 48-hour and 72-hour fasts, and have refused to eat in their cells since the protest began. (The cells are equipped with a toilet.) There is an onus on everybody to exert whatever influence they can to resolve the situation in Maghaberry before the prisoners' health suffers.

The prisoners urgently need YOUR support!

U.S. Military Has Killed 127-238,000 Iraqi Civilians

Dave Lindorff | Most of the media have missed the main point about the Johns Hopkins/Lancet study of deaths caused by the U.S. invasion. Certainly it’s true that many of those deaths have been caused by Iraqi insurgents, civil war fighters and criminals, but nearly a third of them—nearly all civilians and a high proportion children--were the direct result of U.S. weapons fire.

Rose Colored Glasses: A New & Unique Public Education & Deprogramming Video Series.

RCG Webmaster | I had two goals when making this series. To make a permanent historical record of these dark times, AND to make these videos available as cheap and easily mass-produced Super VCD's for apathetic and uninformed people to be able to watch on their Televisions. It is my hope that activists might use them as tools to educate and to inspire the populace. more...  0 Comments

The Mark Foley scandal: Where is the crime?

Fred Bergen | It is the capitalists and their parties who politicize sex. They claim
to be defending the innocent and vulnerable, but anyone who has seen the
pictures from Abu Ghraib prison knows that this government doesn't give
a damn about sexual torture and molestation. Their real intent is to
persecute anyone who strays outside the completely artificial bounds
prescribed by the patriarchal, heterosexual bourgeois family, and in the
process arrogate to themselves ever greater police powers. more...  3 Comments
