Author Naomi Wolf Warns of Fascism in America.

Alex Kane | Fascism is coming to America. This is the overarching message of Naomi Wolf’s new book, The End of America: A Letter of Warning To A Young Patriot. Naomi Wolf came to the Barnes and Noble on 22nd Street and 6th Ave. to promote this book, and she has been promoting it for the last month. Wolf, an American author and activist whose claim to fame was the
feminist book The Beauty Myth, argues that there are ten definitive steps that governments take in order to turn their society into a fascist one. These ten steps, argues Wolf, are occurring right here in
America, under the administration of George W. Bush. more...  13 Comments

An Evening in Solidarity with the Iraq Freedom Congress

SP-NYC | Which forces should the U.S. anti-war movement support in Iraq? Should we give blanket support to all groups “resisting” the US occupation – including ex-Baathists and Islamic fundamentalists? Can we forget the grim liquidation campaigns against leftists in Sadaam Hussein’s Iraq in the early 70s and after the Iranian Revolution in the 80s? Does political Islam or right-wing nationalism offer a road forward for the majority of Iraqis?

Video of anti-war demo in London, England.

Doug | On the day that the British Parliament resumed after its Summer recess, a large group of anti-war protesters marched into the Square. They were joined by people who demand the basic freedom to be able to protest peacefully without prior police permission or conditions.
