Coalition of Anti-War Groups Protest Bush's Visit to the UN.

Alex Kane | On the morning of September 25, 2007, a loose coalition of anti-war groups gathered outside the UN at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza to protest the visit of George W. Bush. The coalition comprised of the NYC chapter of World Can’t Wait, Code Pink, Grannies for Peace, the War Resisters League, and a host of other groups, and the amount of people totaled about 1200. Barricades lined 1st avenue, with a large contingent of police officers deployed to deal with the chaos that ensues when world leaders converge on New York City, especially unpopular ones. The protest was confined to an area that was closed off with barricades on both sides. more...  7 Comments

Turning Ahmadinejad Into Public Enemy No. 1

Juan Cole | "There is, in fact, remarkably little substance to the debates now raging in the United States about Ahmadinejad. His quirky personality, penchant for outrageous one-liners, and combative populism are hardly serious concerns for foreign policy. Taking potshots at a bantam cock of a populist like Ahmadinejad is actually a way of expressing another, deeper anxiety: fear of Iran’s rising position as a regional power and its challenge to the American and Israeli status quo. The real reason his visit is controversial is that the American right has decided the United States needs to go to war against Iran. Ahmadinejad is therefore being configured as an enemy head of state." more...  1 Comments

Campus Circus Maximus: Ahmadinejad Visits Columbia

Chris Anderson | Even on its best days, Columbia University exhibits something of fortress-like mentality. Its statuesque stone walls add a touch of Romanesque grandeur, but they mostly just serve to remind visitors and the occasional perceptive student of the institutions' historic isolation from its surrounding community. September 24 2007 was not one of Columbia's best days. The visit of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad segmented the campus and the streets outside into varying playpens for the exercise of free speech. more...  6 Comments
