War & Peace

Target: Iran

DONALD PANETH | On Oct. 19, 2005, I was startled to hear a well-placed source declare at the United Nations that the Pentagon has prepared plans to attack Iran, that the attack will take the form of an airstrike, and that its objective will be “regime change.” more...  0 Comments

France: Racism, poverty fuel rebellion

Fred Goldstein | The working class leadership in France has been weak on this question and downright reactionary at times. Right now they need to stop retreating. They must not confine themselves to mere protests against reactionary measures of repression. They need to demand that all the cops be withdrawn, that the emergency decrees be revoked. They need to come out for the justified rebellion.

The rebellious youth must be embraced as part of the working class. They may be unemployed, underemployed and/or unorganized, but right now they are potentially the greatest allies of the organized workers. They have overwhelmed a part of the state. They are mobilized and if they were to be joined by a solidarity strike against racism, poverty and oppression, the entire working class could push the ruling class offensive back.

It would be a mirror, but on a grander scale, of when the French workers in 1968 followed the students with a general strike and shook the ground under French capitalism. It is the lack of understanding of the national question, of the colonial question, of the importance of coming out against national oppression, that now stands in the way of a united struggle against capitalist exploitation itself. This must be overcome. more...  1 Comments

ERIN THOMPSON | The Granny Brigade was called together by Molly Klopot, President of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILFP).

She hopes to create an umbrella coalition of grandmother activists that would blend the efforts of myriad “granny” protest groups active in New York City. The group incorporates women from a range of activist groups, including Code Pink, Grandmothers Against the War, The Gray Panthers and WILFP. more...  1 Comments

SHOCKING NIGER WMD PHOTOS HERE -- The threat is REAL!

Clayton Hallmark | Put the words NIGER FORGERIES and these photocopies (below) into the consciousness of Mr. and Mrs. America, and it could change the course of history. These 4 graphics are worth 4 million words. These are the cause/excuse for the Iraq war. They are not real (they are forgeries), but they are a REAL threat to the nation's existence! Why? Because they came from foreign sources. FOREIGN AGENTS HAVE BEEN DRIVING US POLICY. That is a bigger threat to America than knocking down the WTC, which "only" killed 0.014% of one metropolitan area. (Reminder: Bin Laden still is at large.) The $64-Million Questions: WHAT FOREIGNERS Made the Forgeries? WHAT AMERICANS SOLD OUT AMERICA by Using the Forgeries? more...  0 Comments

Anarchists to Confront Military Recruiters in Brooklyn

In our Hearts | We carry a new world here, in our hearts. That world is growing this minute.The United States needs a constant, fresh supply of recruits in order to maintain its current wars, and even more if it wants to expand. Recruiters use every dirty trick in the book (including downright lies) to fool poor people here in the US into joining the military and helping the government exploit and oppress poor people in foreign lands. By denying the government the bodies needed to wage war, we are denying it the ability to fight wars. more...  49 Comments
