I Sitll Believe

Martin Luther King, Jr. | I refuse to accept the cynical notion that nation after nation must spiral down a militaristic stairway into the hell of nuclear annihilation. I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant. more...  0 Comments

Democracy Behind Bars in East Africa (The Indypendent)

NEELA GHOSHAL | Just a year ago, the East African nation of Uganda was still a darling of the West, hailed as an African success story based on its economic growth and success in combating AIDS. How quickly things change, particularly in Africa, where Western governments tend to wear blinders when it comes to the dictatorial tendencies of their allies. more...  8 Comments

Ariel Sharon’s Life of Crime (The Indypendent)

MATT WASSERMAN AND JOHN TARLETON | “You can call me anything you like. Call me a monster or a murderer,” Ariel Sharon said in a notorious 1982 interview with the Israeli writer Amos Oz. “Even today I am willing to volunteer to do the dirty work for Israel, to kill as many Arabs as necessary, to deport them, to expel and burn them, to have everyone hate us.” As it turns out, Sharon had a lot more “dirty work” ahead of him. Here are some of the milestones in Sharon’s epic half-century military and political career that mirrors the history of modern Israe more...  1 Comments

Letter from Israel: Father Knows Best (The Indypendent)

Article on antiwar movement in new Left Turn

anti-capitalista | The anti-war movement has made significant strides in forging a broad-based struggle to end the war and occupation. It has largely avoided debilitating splits or political battles and has succeeded in building important ties to military veterans and families—alliances crucial to broadening the opposition. Perhaps most remarkable, according to a Rasmussen Reports survey from September 2005, some 23 percent of Americans consider themselves part of the anti-war movement, which would amount to approximately 56 million Americans above the age of 16. But who is this movement? What groupings make up its ranks and perhaps more importantly, what are its strategies for forcing the US to withdraw from both Iraq and beyond? more...  8 Comments
