Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) | The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) today denounced the current large-scale military exercises being conducted jointly in various areas in Luzon and Palawan by US and Philippine as a "continuing transgession against Philippine independence and sovereignty." At the same time, the CPP warned against use of Philippine territory as a staging ground or support base for any possibility of US military aggression against the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK).
barra | The answer is blowing the Constitution and Bill of Rights out the window – the Triads, Mafia, Latino, Cuban groups and various South American drug cartels all have something to learn from Cheney and Bush; in fact, they look positively tame in comparison. When confronted with accusations (and proof) of murder, torture, theft/plunder, illegal surveillance, etc, on levels traditional organised crime could only dream of, what is the recourse of neo-cons? Legislate and change the Law (it’s an ass anyway). Simply legalise activities that were once considered crimes and criminalise those who oppose or disagree! There’s nothing that compares to stealing government – computerised voting, subterfuge, lies, fabricated terrorist threats and THE POWER TO LEGISLATE – it’s just too damn easy! more... 0 Comments
Sharon Smith | The October 7 anniversary of the war on Afghanistan passed virtually unnoticed on U.S. soil. Mainstream news outlets spared the Bush administration the embarrassment of accounting for the subsequent fate of Afghanistan's 30 million people five years after the U.S. launched the first "regime change" in its never-ending war on terror.

Stanley W. Rogouski | Bringing the play to New York City would present difficulties not encountered in London. Last April, James Nicola decided to stage the play at the New York Theater Workshop, apparently without having familiarized himself with the explosive nature of the subject matter. He backed down at the first sign of trouble and cancelled the production. At this point, the liberal and progressive community in New York City and in the country as a whole, who had been strangely silent about Corrie’s death two years earlier, decided to take notice and a grassroots movement began staging the parts of the play in town squares and on college campuses across the country. It culminated in a massive rally at Riverside Cathedral presided over by Amy Goodman and what seemed to be the collective presence of New York City’s radical left. Finally, in October, Rickman and Katherine Viner were able to stage My Name is Rachel Corrie at the tiny Minetta Lane Theater in the West Village, and Rachel Corrie’s ghostly presence rises from the grave and speaks. more... 4 Comments

Hoipolloi Cassidy | "The Paranoid Style in American Politics." was published parallel to the presidential elections of 1964 in which Barry Goldwater and friends went down in flames, so it's logical that another liberal, Paul Krugman, would revive it in a New York Times Op-Ed piece, just as a new batch of political paranoids heads for the poubelle. more... 0 Comments

Soli D. Arity | President Bollinger's Statement:
David Ferris | One day before Lynne Stewart is scheduled to be sentenced for providing “material support” to terrorists, several hundred supporters, family members, and colleagues of the radical activist lawyer rallied at Riverside Church Sunday evening in a spirited demonstration of solidarity and support. Standing before a banner reading, “We love you Lynne, and everything you stand for,” they celebrated Stewart’s dedication to human rights and urged leniency and mercy in the judge’s decision, which they hoped would result in a non-custodial sentence.
