Urgent Call for court solidarity - Cindy Sheehan & friends in court December 11 for UN Mission Trespass

absinthe | Medea Benjamin, Cindy Sheehan, Patty Ackerman and Missy Beattie have been in court all week stemming from their arrests outside the U.S. Mission to the U.N. last March on International Women’s Day. The courts have been lacking supporters so I looked here & saw no call for court solidarity for these great women. Surely we can pack the courts, can't we? Here's an article about it when the trial started:  http://www.commondreams.org/headlines06/1206-03.htm more...  0 Comments

The “Retired General Syndrome”; Kofi Annan Learned Little from Daniel Ellsberg

Joan Russow | The serious consequences of the “retired general syndrome” were eloquently expressed in the “Pentagon Papers” by Daniel Ellsberg.

In his press conferences and interviews, he has been calling on officials who are aware of the US plans for an invasion of Iran, to not make the same mistake he made. Similarly, Kofi Annan, as Secretary General failed to speak out when he could have made a difference. more...  0 Comments

El Asturig Emil von München | Os que imitam o marxismo - falsificando-o porém - exclamam, de modo a procurar encontrar justificação para as suas próprias posições : Porém, o que dizer da liberdade do indivíduo, das liberdades de imprensa, expressão, reunião e etc. ? ... Examinando as relações sociais, Marx e Engels descobriram que, em uma sociedade capitalista, a liberdade significa a liberdade dos capitalistas para garantirem a "segurança social" de seu sistema e revelaram que os Direitos das classes oprimidas não resultam em absolutamente nada.
