Overflow Crowd Turns Out for Beaver St. Antiwar Lecture

Hannah Vahl | An overflowing crowd gathered at the 16 Beaver St. cultural space Wednesday night to listen to a pair of radical scholars discuss the future of the U.S. occupation of Iraq. The length of the question-and-answer session, which evolved into a way for audience members to express their own frustrations and concerns with the situation in Iraq and American leadership and the need to create grassroots opposition, made the event more than a lecture.

Renowned Mexican Human Rights lawyer Joins Brad Will Case

Brad Will Family (posted by friends in NYC) | The Will family is pleased to have the renowned Mexican human rights lawyer, Miguel Angel de Los Santos Cruz, join the cause for justice in the case of Bradley Roland Will's death.

Brad, a New York based photojournalist and activist, was shot and killed in Oaxaca, Mexico last October 27th while videotaping the turmoil in the Mexican State. Although two government-affiliated suspects were initially held for the murder, they were released by Oaxacan state authorities in late November on claims of insufficient evidence. A number of human rights groups have questioned the legitimacy of the state investigation and are calling for the case to be moved to the federal level.

Fitzgerald, who has close ties to Rudy Giuliani, will continue to make sure that nothing comes out to hurt the interests of the Bush-Cheney Gang. more...  0 Comments

Demands For Media Justice Echo Dr. Martin Luther King’s Calls for Equality and in Memphis

Robin Andersen | Media makers, critics, journalists, artists and organizers converged on Memphis over the weekend and their demands for media justice and equal representation echoed across the balcony of the Lorraine Motel, where a museum memorializes Doctor Martin Luther King’s struggle for civil rights. In the city where the besieged Dr. King’s voice would not be silenced, but forever amplified after his death, a cacophony of voices reconverged to challenge a media behemoth as oppressive now as the forces of inequality he decried then with such vigor and efficacy. more...  0 Comments

Criminal Empire

Kingfisher | Move over Mafia, Cocaine cartels, Russian, Balkan, Cuban groups, Triads and numerous other criminal organisations – the U.S. State is taking over! Today, the methodologies of the American State cannot be distinguished from the methods of organised crime. The latest executions of Saddam’s cronies and the newly signed deal to allow American Oil Companies unprecedented access and open slather exploitation of Iraqi Oil reserves leave little doubt regarding the real intentions of the illegal invasion. The Washington line of spreading ‘liberty’ and ‘democracy’ will go down in history as a feeble and transparent charade. Nevertheless, America has proven that caveman tactics of brute force and mindless violence (over 655,000 dead) succeed in satisfying immediate needs. It has also become apparent that the USA is unable to see the untenability of its actions in the long term – America has failed to assess the real costs of its morally bankrupt actions! more...  0 Comments
