War & Peace
Grupo Internacionalista | En la madrugada del 1° de marzo, aviones de guerra de la Fuerza Aérea colombiana lanzaron un ataque contra un campamento de las Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia (FARC) ubicado dentro de territorio ecuatoriano. El propósito: asesinar al principal portavoz de las FARC para el exterior, Raúl Reyes. Las huellas digitales del imperialismo norteamericano se ven claramente en este macabro incidente. Ante semejante crimen, la respuesta debe consistir en movilizar a los trabajadores en una lucha de clase contra el imperialismo y a sus aliados criollos. En lugar de esto, el grueso de la izquierda latinoamericana se pone a la cola de los estados burgueses de Ecuador y Venezuela, buscando presionarles para que inicien una guerra contra Colombia. No obstante las muchas diferencias políticas que tenemos con las fuerzas guerrilleras de Colombia, que luchan por una “reconciliación” con sectores de la clase dominante, los trotskistas estamos de su lado en la guerra civil contra el estado capitalista. Pero insistimos que la guerrilla no es el camino a la revolución socialista que debe ser dirigida por la clase obrera a la cabeza de las empobrecidas masas rurales y urbanas. more... 0 Comments

William Lewis | The war on terror and the war on freedom are nonpartisan issues. Both Democrats and Republicans alike have consistently voted for legislation that, through the illusion of protecting our families and our homeland, have actually removed critical components of the U.S. Constitution. Will the Democrat’s new FISA Spy Bill be any different? more... 0 Comments

Shreeram Krishnaswami | "Another child will die in the time it takes to read this sentence. And the death of that child, a child who had a name and a personality, a family and a future, is a rebuke to all humanity. It is no longer necessary. It is therefore no longer acceptable."

Liza Minno | Military recruiters are a familiar site in Bushwick, Brooklyn, a predominately Black and Hispanic immigrant neighborhood where nearly 30 percent of residents live below the poverty line. The area is serviced by two recruiting stations, one on Myrtle Avenue and one in neighboring East New York. Recruiters approach students after school in major shopping thoroughfares like Knickerbocker Avenue, while high schools students receive visits from former students who have joined the military. more... 0 Comments

Prod/Dir Christian Trumble | Iraq - The Hidden Story shows the footage used by TV news broadcasts and compares it with the devastatingly powerful uncensored footage of the aftermath of the carnage that is begocing a part of the fabric of life in Iraq. Channel 4 questions whether these reports are sugar-coating the bloody reality of war under the US-led occupation. more... 0 Comments
Mickey Z. | The Left praised Vietnam era draftees who fled to Canada. Yet, today’s volunteer warriors are given a free pass because they didn’t give the orders in an illegal war and occupation. This is not only illegal and immoral; it also lacks any radical credibility. Somehow, individuals and groups can stand tall against war and military intervention but refuse to shine a light on those who choose (and get paid) to fight. more... 2 Comments
WOLA (Washington Office in Latin America) | Political violence in Colombia has caused one of the world's worst internal displacement crises, with more than 4 million people uprooted over the past 20 years. Illegal armed groups have unleashed unprecedented violence to force people off their land and silence peaceful opposition to the violations. As a result, these illegal armed groups exercise social, political and economic control over vast tracts of the territory. March 12th, 3:30 PM at The Church of the United Nations, 777 United Nations Plaza 8th Floor, New York, NY 10017 (Corner of 44th Street and 1st Avenue). more... 0 Comments

By Jack A. Smith | Clinton and Obama each maintain that if elected they will immediately take steps to end the war in Iraq. But there is good reason to look at the fine print of their programs very carefully. Neither will end it quickly nor bring all the troops home. more... 1 Comments
Adalah-NY | As thirteen organizations working for human rights, social justice, and peace, we demand that The Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in Manhattan rescind its agreement to host the March 18 fundraiser for “Friends of the Israel Defense Forces.” The Israeli military has been historically a flagrant violator of human rights and international law as demonstrated by last week’s attack on Gaza which killed over 100 Palestinians, the 2006 attack on Lebanon, and the 60-year assault on and dispossession of the Palestinian people.
