Battle Lines Behind the Battle Lines

Annabeth | The Peace Movement not only has the terminology of war projected upon it, but at times embraces war terminology itself. How can we stand against war when we actively use the war words to describe our actions? Are we simply offering a different type of warcraft, non-violent generals, and non-violent troops? Or is it time to create a terminology of Peace to describe our actions, thus causing a shift in reality and in perceptions? more...  1 Comments

Nepal: 'Prachanda Path' to Urban Insurrection (Indy)

Gary Leupp | The Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) announced last Saturday that its guerrilla forces, the New People’s Army, will observe a three-month ceasefire. This is particularly significant in that the move is a unilateral one. The regime might decide to respond in kind , and reign in the Royal Nepali Army, which is reportedly unhappy with the war and the king. But the Maoists, who will defend themselves in any case if attacked, seem less concerned with the government’s response than with the reaction of the mainstream political parties sidelined and abused since the king’s February 1 coup. more...  0 Comments

Why Protest? (Indy)

Geoff Mendoza | When one woman showed up outside George Bush’s ranch demanding nothing more than dialogue and received massive national media attention for weeks on end, the antiwar movement stopped momentarily to rethink itself. “Is this the new face of protest?” wrote The Nation. more...  5 Comments

The Reality of War: Occupation Dreamland (Indy)

John Tarleton | When the antiwar movement that converges on Washington, D.C., on Sept. 24, it will, thanks to Cindy Sheehan, have wind in its sails. The case will be made (again) that the best way to support the troops in Iraq is to bring them home now. But who are the troops? What are they doing exactly, and how do they feel about it? more...  0 Comments

Iraq: Cleansing the Voting Rolls (Indy)

A.K. Gupta | Katrina wiped more than New Orleans off the map—it wiped coverage of the Iraq war almost completely out of the news. The single deadliest event of the occupation—the stampede on a bridge in Baghdad during a religious festival that killed almost 1,000 people on Aug. 31—was overwhelmed by the flood of hurricane coverage.

From One Gulf to Another: It's All Connected (Indy)

A.K. Gupta | It’s all connected: the hurricane, Iraq, racism, global warming, a credulous media, a corrupt government, greedy corporations,
a militarized society, a bitterly divided America. Starkest were the parallels with the disaster of Iraq. First was the White House’s blithe assertion that “no one could have predicted” the levees would break: The prospect that a powerful hurricane would
ravage New Orleans was as predictable as the possibility that the occupation of Iraq would turn into a bloody insurgency. more...  0 Comments

The St. Patrick's Four: The Feds Confront the Anti-War Movement

James Petras | On September 19 the first federal conspiracy trial of civilian war resisters to the US invasion of Iraq will take place in Binghamton, New York, a declining and decaying city in upstate New York, 3 hours northwest of New York City. This is the second trial of the “St Patrick’s Four” – over a year ago a jury in Ithaca, New York voted 9 to 3 in favor of acquittal in which the presiding Judge David Peeble conceded that the four had represented themselves “probably better than some of the attorneys that practice in this court.”

Judge Gone Crazy? Tells Colombian Revolutionaries: “Come to D.C.”

Fight Back News Service | Washington, D.C. - A U.S. judge placed ads in Colombia’s newspapers the last week of August "ordering" the FARC - the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, to appear in his Washington D.C. courtroom. This adds to a list of bizarre procedures involving the extradition, imprisonment and trial of Ricardo Palmera, an important FARC leader. U.S. District Judge Thomas Hogan ridiculously asserts that the FARC members should leave their homeland and come to the U.S. to appear on charges of, "taking hostages in violation of U.S. laws." more...  2 Comments

Will we use the power we have on September 24?

Mike Ferner | If nonviolent direct action is the most powerful tool we have to stop this war, what is the best time to exercise it? When a few hundred people surround the White House on September 26, or when a half-million (and more) people are in the streets September 24?
