Howie Hawkins | Howie Hawkins, the Green Party candidate for US Senate, today called for a new, independent investigation of the 9/11 attacks. Hawkins cited a new poll by Zogby International of Utica that found that "42% believe there has indeed been a cover up" (with 10% unsure) and 45% think "Congress or an International Tribunal should re-investigate the attacks, including whether any US government officials consciously allowed or helped facilitate their success" (with 8% unsure). "Four years ago thousands of innocent people were murdered. in our state's largest city: and yet no one has been held criminally accountable for those actions. Why hasn't the terrorist support network who helped hijack the airplanes been uncovered and prosecuted? Why hasn't Governor Pataki and Senator Clinton demanded to know who financed these attacks, a question the 9/11 Commission dismissed as unimportant? more...  0 Comments

FTP | "The bogus claim made by the Provos that the Stormont Agreement of 1998 was a logical succession to the hunger-strike deaths of 1981 was equivalent to the Free Staters' assertion that the 26-County State arose out of the Easter Rising of 1916," said the President of Republican Sinn Féin, at a 25th anniversary commemoration of the death of hunger-striker Raymond McCreesh at his grave in Camloch, south Armagh on Sunday, May 21. more...  1 Comments

Conservative coalition enters Next Phase

peptide | In response to increased UN pressure to close the illegal Guantanamo Bay detention/torture centre, the Americans left no doubt, “we have no intention of closing Guantanamo Bay”. The flagrant illegality of Guantanamo Bay is lost on the Americans, or worse, stands as a defiant monument to American belligerence and unilateralism. The rest of the world can go to hell; Americans do what they want when they want, is that clear? more...  0 Comments

Concert against Iraq war, tomorrow (Sat) at 6 pm

Sukato | Tribeca Performing Arts Center presents "Axis of Beauty."

Poet/musician Kala Pierson and singer/instrumentalist Sukato join in a multimedia collaboration in response to the Iraq war. This work will feature recorded voices of Iraqis recounting their daily lives through the U.S. invasion and occupation. The "axis of beauty" is an alternative worldview to the bellicose ideology of the "axis of evil" of current U.S. foreign policy. In place of the reductive "clash of civilizations" are aural snapshots of Iraqis coping with unimaginable bombardment, while clinging to their cultural heritage for solace and affirmation in a world turned upside-down.

The Time: Saturday, May 20, 6 pm
The Place:  Tribeca Performing Arts Center/BMCC (Theatre 2)
199 Chambers Street, New York, NY
Directions: Take trains 1, 2, or 3 to the Chambers Street stop
