War Resisters League Meeting Thursday to Plan Antiwar/Antimilitarism Demo During Fleet Week (May 24-30)

Organizer | The NYC War Resisters League is hosting a city-wide meeting on Thursday, May 4, 7 pm, 339 Lafayette St. (at Bleecker St.) to plan for a "Fleet Week" (May 24-30) demonstration.

Fleet Week is a US Navy celebration of militarism which brings dozens of US and foreign warships and roughly 6,000 sailors to New York City each year. The fleet presence on Memorial Day weekend is an attempt to give an aura of patriotism to a naked display of imperial power.

Global Nonviolent Resistance Demands End the Torture, End the Occupation

Danny Malec | Today, in commemoration of International Workers Day, peacemakers and nonviolent activists from around the world engaged in nonviolent civil resistance to highlight the interconnectedness between the ongoing foreign occupation of Iraq and workers’ struggle for justice around the world. In this war, like all wars, the brunt of the cost -- both human and financial -- is disproportionately felt by the poor and working classes all over the world. In the current debate over immigration, it is important to continue making the connection with the failures of US foreign policy (which lead to greater challenges domestically), of which the Iraq war and invasion are prime examples. The stark reality for immigrants, most of whom are themselves political and economic refugees of US foreign policy, is just another example of the shortsightedness and ultimate failure of decades of US warmongering and international interventionism, of which torture has been a key component. more...  0 Comments

The State of (Oz) Affairs

dingo | No greater tragedy has beset the Australian nation than at the present time. Everything that is un-Australian masquerades as the leader of the nation; is it necessary to name John Howard as the personification of everything that is un-Australian? A cowardly, cringing, lying, weevil does not an Australian make! Howard is the most grotesque, obnoxious flea that has ever inhabited political office. A perfect coward and pathological liar has won the last two elections by default. The local population desperately sought a viable opposition but found NONE; a high school student could have beaten Howard but not the present opposition; no greater congregation of self-centred, self-destructive, inept fools has ever sullied the floor of parliament. more...  0 Comments

"Anti-Imperial" Spirituality by Jon Sobrino

Jon Sobrino | We are seduced by the prosperity culture to which everything must be sacrificed. In this way, the life of others and the monstrous suffering of the planet are played down.. In Latin America, thousands have lived friendship with the poor and with God instead of being friends of the empire and the emperor. Many of us live from this inheritance. more...  0 Comments
