War & Peace

Build a United Anti-War Movement

Written by Socialist Appeal | After weeks of political show-boating, the Democrats have voted to continue the war in Iraq. Without even the fig leaf of a time line for a partial withdrawal, they have appropriated over $100 billion more public dollars to continue the occupation of Iraq, condemning thousands more Americans and Iraqis to death and dismemberment. This is another $100 billion that will not be used to create jobs, provide health care, or build schools and affordable housing. The total spent on the war now totals over $556 billion. Even the richest nation on earth cannot afford this policy of “guns before butter” forever.

Bush is completely discredited, with little popular support and virtually none of his infamous “political capital”. And still the Democrats caved on the one issue that has galvanized the entire country, the one issue that propelled them to Congressional power in the mid-term elections. The message in November was crystal clear: “end the war now!” more...  0 Comments

Kurdish Culture, Repression, Women’s Rights, and Resistance

Steven Argue | For the Kurdish people outrageous acts of oppression in Turkey, Iraq, Iran, Armenia, and Syria have included mass murder, suppression of language rights, exploitation of Kurdish resources with nothing but poverty given in return, deprivations of national citizenships, and the brutal suppression of political representation.

Despite the oppression the Kurdish people have faced, they continue to speak their language and organize politically and, at times, militarily to fight back nearly everywhere they continue to live as a native population. more...  0 Comments

Nicaraguan leader in Iran for talks with Ahmadinejad

General Joe | While: "Joe Lieberman thinks we should attack Iran because there are terrorist training camps in the wilderness that no-one has ever produced definite evidence (you know - co-ordinates, pictures) actually exist. Meanwhile, the US is warning Turkey to back-off from threats that it will attack the known and well-documented locations of PKK terrorist training camps in Kurdish Iraq - camps which the US has done not word one about. It's a screaming double standard and even a pet goat could see that." more...  0 Comments

ELECTION FRAUD AND VIOLENCE EXPOSED IN NEW YORK

AJLPP-New York | Last Sunday, June 3, in the heart of the Philippine Independence Day Celebration on Madison Avenue, Manhattan, cultural group Sining Pandayan used creative street theater to expose the election fraud and violence marking this past midterm election, and to urge Filipinos to continue the struggle for a truly free and independent Philippines.

"The massive migration of Filipinos to different parts of the world is a living testament that people in the Philippines face harsh conditions that force them to go to foreign countries to survive," said Joana Palomar, spokesperson for Ugnayan ng mga Anak ng Bayan (Linking the Children of the Motherland), one of the organizations comprising Sining Pandayan. "While we Filipinos in the US celebrate the so-called independence of the Philippines, our people back home are denied a voice in the elections because of massive cheating, vote-padding, electioneering, murder and violence."

Sining Pandayan or "forging art" in Filipino is the multi-generational, multi-sectoral cultural group comprised of workers, women, immigrant and second-generation youth, students, young professionals, and LGBTQ, mainly from DAMAYAN Migrant Workers Association and Ugnayan ng mga Anak ng Bayan. Sining Pandayan uses various cultural and expressive means such as poetry, music and street theater to project issues of the Filipino people, both in the homefront and locally.

America’s Robespierre: President George W. Bush?

William Hughes | There is a Robespierre-like clone residing in our White House! His name is George W. Bush. Thanks to a book by Dr. Justin A. Frank, entitled: “Bush on a Couch,” we know a lot more about him and his dysfunctional upbringing. Like Robespierre, Bush is a fanatic on both politics and religion. A “dry drunk,” he won’t seek treatment or own up to his responsibility for the Iraqi War. In the mold of a whacky Robespierre, he also sees himself as the liberator of Iraq! more...  1 Comments
