Israeli anarchist asks court for jail time after conviction for protest

ISM-NYC | Jonathan Pollak: "It was not us who should have been standing accused here, but rather the architects and enforcers of Israeli Apartheid... I still believe that what I did was necessary and morally correct, and that resistance to oppression is the duty of every human being, even at a personal price."

Storming the Pentagon, 1967 .... and Today

Mitchel Cohen | Ron Jacobs wrote an interesting piece published in Counterpunch connecting the crucial upcoming antiwar march on the Pentagon on March 17, 2007 with the first march of the sort against the Vietnam war on Oct. 21, 1967, which was a turning point for the movement. See,  http://counterpunch.org/jacobs02162007.html

These are some of my own reflections on the same events, which I originally wrote as the introduction to my booklet "A Head Full of Ideas that are Driving me Insane." more...  4 Comments

Lost Directions

budgie | The USA is that way! The most servile government in Australian history achieved a new ‘personal best’ in bootlicking today. Yesterday's parliament question time witnessed the Minister of Defence, Brendan (studs) Nelson and the Foreign Minister, Alexander (cream puff) Downer bending over forwards in preparation for Cheney’s visit. Astounding as it may seem to most Australians these two lackeys were attempting to score political points by extolling the virtues of neo-colonial subservience to the United States! more...  0 Comments

Anniversary Protest

Anti-Empire | I just participated in the Columbia anti-war rally/march/strike. It was a fairly good event, we had around ~300-400 participants (in my estimation). Several corporate media outlets were there reporting (for better or for worse...). I would just like to say that I am neither with ANSWER nor a Leninist (obviously can't prove that online, but for what its worth...) and I totally support a March 18/19 action on college campuses, whoever its called by (preferably all groups would participate). A few things I would suggest however. more...  0 Comments

John Howard: Profile of a Coward

finch | The Australian Prime Minister, John Howard, has managed to gain some international attention after his hysterical attack on presidential candidate, Barack Obama. The seasoned Australian politician knowingly stated that a victory for Obama OR the Democrats would be a victory for al-Qaeda, “I mean, if I we're running al-Qaeda in Iraq, I would put a circle around March 2008 and pray as many times as possible for a victory not only for Obama but also for the Democrats”. more...  0 Comments

Pentagon Caught Red Handed in an attempt to Frame Iran

Sealion | "As a recent email points out, Iran does not manufacture 81mm mortar shells. According to a report offered by the Jaffee Center for Strategic Studies at Tel Aviv University, connected to the Saban Center for Middle East Policy at the neocon Brookings Institute, the smallest mortar produced by Iran is the 107mm M-30. This information is included in the JCSS’s “Middle East Military Balance,” updated last February. It can be read in this PDF file on page 15. According to JCSS, “The Middle East Military Balance has been the most authoritative source on Middle Eastern Armies since 1983.” It is quite fortunate for us the hubris-filled neocons care not to double check their engineered lies—erroneously described as a “machining process”—before unleashing them on an unwitting public." more...  1 Comments
