Journalist in grave danger: Needs support now before death in Mexico

Fredy Munoz | "Colleagues and friends, from within this enclosed space, I send my message of thanks to all of you who continue to stake life and freedom in this vital profession, and in everyone else who engages with fervent struggle.

It is so ironic that while the judicial officers opened a file on me for charges very removed from the reality of my twelve years as a journalist, Colombian television transmitted a homage on the sacrificed Jaime Garzón, a journalist whose work aroused the rage and intolerance of a stubborn, detrimental authority, entrenched in the institutionality of the country.

Glimpse of Secret Gitmo Panels

Jackie Northam | Snip: "They relied instead on secret evidence that was classified," Denbeaux says. "And the government's procedure was, anything in that secret evidence was presumed to be valuable and valid. And then the detainee was given the opportunity to rebut the secret evidence. But he was never told what the secret evidence was." more...  0 Comments

WOT: Revolution in news will lead to the overthrow of capitalist rule

Ben Seattle (reposted by Marik) | The industrial revolution created the modern proletariat.
The revolution in communications will allow this proletariat
to make itself conscious and will lead to the overthrow
of the system of bourgeois rule.

For the first time in history, the majority of suffering humanity
will have access to a clear, accurate and comprehensive
class-based picture of what is wrong with the world
and how to coordinate their actions in order to end bourgeois rule
and usher in a world without hunger, privation or war.

As decade rolls after decade, information war will transform
the terrain of the class struggle -- including world culture,
world politics and the left ecosystem which gives birth to
revolutionary organizations.

These nine theses are the second installment of
"Seventeen Theses on the Destiny of the Revolution
in Communications and the Concept of Workers' Rule".

Venezuela: ¡Es la abstención lo que mejor prepara al proletariado para los inevitables enfrentamientos de clase!

partido comunista internacional | Para miembros del gobierno de Chávez, la abstención potencial actual va de la mano con los intentos de desestabilizar el país para justificar la ausencia de la oposición en los comicios electorales. Estas amalgamas bien malintencionadas no son nuevas ni originales, pues, es el chantaje y la coartada clásicos para volver a atar el proletariado al carro de la burguesía y del capitalismo. Los reformistas querrían que nuestra abstención convalide la abstención del golpismo, a sabienda que las razones de los golpistas son diametralmente opuestas y no coinciden más que en la forma con las nuestras.

WBAI Listener and Staff Local Board Election Results

Patty Heffley | The voters chose transparency, financial responsibility and oversight candidates instead of a nasty, negative, race-baiting, disingenuous propaganda slate. The independent candidates won 7 out of 12 seats in this election. Even with the use of You Tube, Local Access TV, targeted websites and producers lists and endorsements by the labor show host and others, that dog didn't hunt. more...  17 Comments
