Bolivia’s Gas war heats up

Jennifer Whitney | High in the Andes, in the impoverished city of El Alto, history was made in March. Leaders and spokespeople of movements from across the country gathered to relaunch the People’s General Staff – a social movement coordinating body established in 2001. Many are antagonists, but have agreed to attempt to work together. As Movement Towards Socialism leader Evo Morales said, “When the right wing, the government, the oligarchy, and the transnationals unite, we are forced to unite as well.†more...  2 Comments

Small Talk at 125th & Lenox

Steven Wishnia | March 19’s “Troops Out Now†demonstration against the Iraq war was far smaller than the throngs of up to 500,000 that turned out for protests in February 2003 and March 2004. Though the crowd – significantly more multiracial than the average antiwar march – stretched for a dozen blocks as it trekked past the brownstones and gospel tabernacles of Harlem and the bodegas and taquerias of East Harlem, by the time it reached the rally site in Central Park, there were only a few thousand people. more...  2 Comments

This War Won’t Stop Itself

David Solnit | The world is waiting for Americans to show visible resistance and dispel the illusion from the November election that most of us actually support the Bush administration’s bloody empire.

Schiavo Subtext: Rule of Law vs. Rule by God

C. Clark Kissinger | No one has ever seen anything quite like it. Republican Senate leaders refused to let Congress recess until the House, which had already adjourned, reassembled to pass the “Terri Schiavo Bill.” The President flew back from the Texas ranch to sign this special piece of “humanitarian” legislation in the middle of the night wearing his PJs. But this special act of Congress was anything but humanitarian. It was a carefully planned frontal assault on what have been basic principles of law up to now. more...  0 Comments
