d.o. | If you thought 9/11 was horrendous wait ‘til you see what a good portion of the Arab world can dish up when they feel their backs are up against the wall, when they react to another U.S. client state and a U.S military platform in their midst.

Christianity and Anarchism Conference

Jesus Radicals | Engaging the Powers: Christianity, Anarchism and Social Change Saturday July 31, 2004 New York City Friends Meetinghouse 15th Street and Rutherford Place (between 2nd and 3rd Avenues) Contact: jesusradicals@jesusradicals.com Website: http://conferencenyc.jesusradicals.com/ Revolution is an often abused term - banks regularly use it to describe their ATM cards and the fashion industry use it to describe the latest fad that will go out of style in 3 months. However, revolution is what the Gospel demands of us: nothing less than a complete change of allegiance from passively or actively supporting oppression to working for liberation and respect for all life in Creation. In our second conference on Christianity and Anarchism, Jesus Radicals hopes to respond to the challenge of being rebels in a world that does not know peace, justice or the God that created it. Through lectures, discussions and table fellowship (eating together) we will explore what resources we have to become a people able to build a social body capable of not only resisting the powers, but also capable of being a rival, distinct social body that invites everyone to join with us. Special attention will be given to these themes: (1) naming the powers and principalities that are subverting our church and enslaving society; (2) finding ways to confront these powers and break their strength. more...  0 Comments

Boycott the Democratic Party for Single Payer Health Care.

Lloyd Hart | It is time to send the Democratic Party a clear and concise message that we the American public will not vote for any Democrats or write checks for any Democrats or volunteer for any Democrats until Presidential Candidate Senator John Kerry, Democratic National Committee Chairman Terry McAuliffe and the majority of elected Democrats as well as elected delegates to the National and state conventions swear an oath to make the "single payer universal health care system" the official health care plank in the Democratic party platform and campaign making the "single payer universal health care system" a central part of all Democratic party communications to the American public leading up to the 2004 elections. more...  1 Comments

NYT's Lies about Aristide and Haiti

Justin Felux | If you believe the stories of the corporate media and the Bush administration, you would think Aristide is getting what he deserves. He is a "corrupt dictator" who abuses human rights. He is a "psychopath" who advocated "necklacing" his opponents. He didn't do anything to bring Haiti out of poverty; in fact, he made Haiti more poor than ever. All of these statements are distortions or outright lies. Aristide's true crime was the same crime committed by L'Ouverture 200 years ago: he stood up to the powers that be. He empowered the Haitian people and belied the racist caricature of Haiti as a land of savage, voodoo-practicing black people who aren't fit to govern themselves; the view expressed by William Jennings Bryan when he said "Think of it, niggers speaking French," or by Pat Buchanan when he disgracefully referred to Haitian refugees as "the Zulus off Miami Beach." Aristide showed those who painted the Haitian people as ungovernable savages needed to take a look in the mirror before they presumed to control the affairs of Haiti, and for that, he had to be deposed. more...  1 Comments
