On the Philippine Judge’s Decision to Deny Custody of a Convicted US Marine to the US Embassy

AJLPP-USA | The Alliance for Just and Lasting Peace in the Philippines (AJLPP) USA highly commends Judge Benjamin Pozon of Makati City, Philippines for standing firm on his decision not to give the U.S Embassy custody of convicted rapist Cpl. Daniel Smith of the U.S. Marines despite the lap-dog subservience of the US-Arroyo government and its Department of Justice.
On the Philippine Judge’s Decision to Deny Custody of a Convicted US Marine to the US Embassy.

The AJLPP commend the ruling and are proud that the judge used his "courage and independence." His brave action puts the Philippine government to shame and in their proper place as lackeys and puppets of a bully government.

The AJLPP also vehemently condemn the high handedness and the imperial arrogance of the US government through its ambassador and its Manila Embassy in trying to order the court and insinuate that the “judge does not understand the VFA.” more...  0 Comments

Still Jews only

Jonathan Cook | This is the bottom line for a Jewish state, just as it was for a white apartheid South Africa: if we are to survive, then we must be able to do whatever it takes to keep ourselves in power, even if it means systematically violating the human rights of all those we rule over and who do not belong to our group.

Pinochet is dead! It is time to kill the system that spawned him!

Fred Weston | The fact that the death of Pinochet on Sunday sparked off celebrations in Chile and around the world should surprise no one. He was a hated figure, a living symbol of the real face of the bourgeoisie.

In "normal" times the capitalists prefer to govern through "democratic" parliamentary means, so long as their fundamental interests are guaranteed. But the capitalist system cannot always guarantee that its interests can be defended through parliamentary means. History is full of examples where the bourgeoisie has preferred to do away with the niceties of "democracy"... Hitler, Mussolini, Franco, Suharto... the list is endless. more...  0 Comments

Mythic Figures Spooking Dubya

William Hughes | President George W. Bush, the quintessential warmonger, is on the defensive! If you look close enough, you can see the fear in his eyes. Since 2005, Cindy Sheehan, an “Earth Mother,” has been challenging him to a face-to-face meeting. The cowardly Bush has declined. Meanwhile, other splendid activists, like the “Hero/Patriot” from the mythic past, are demanding the impeachment by the U.S. Congress of both Bush and V. P. Dick Cheney. more...  0 Comments

AJLPP-USA | We condemn the Arroyo regime for its butchery of hundreds of Filipinos and our nation's freedom by presiding over gross human rights violations and insisting on a self-serving charter change similar to that of the Marcos dictatorship," said the Philippine human rights group KARAPATAN whose members and allied organizations joined the anti-Cha Cha rally today at the House of Representatives in Batasan.

Philippine human rights watchdog-KARAPATAN ,received reports on the assassination of Jesus "Butch" Servida, in Cavite and Crisanto Frivaldo in Bicol.
