concerned | I’ve been following the news really closely the past two weeks and I’ve been surprised to see a serious lack of coverage about what is going on in the Middle East on the IMC newswire. In addition to this, I’ve been surprised that I haven’t been able to find out about any emergency actions/events happening in NYC to assist in putting a halt to Israel’s military actions. ||Pay No Attention to the Israeli Bombardment of Lebanon ||Israel Kills Palestinians with U.S. Weapons ||Coverage of June 16 Emergency Rally more... 7 Comments
vf | Remember the message that our newspapers and media were feeding us the last few years? Israel is the friend to the fledgling Lebanese democracy. Zionist supporters in the U.S. and internationally fought hard to end the Syrian “Occupation” (*wink*, wink) of long suffering Lebanon. more... 4 Comments

Dave Lindorff | He and the President are trying to justify dictatorship on the cheap by claiming that “everybody does it” during wartime, and then things go back to normal…except there is no war now, and the fake “war’ on terror will never end.
Howie Hawkins | NY: Howie Hawkins, the Green Party candidate for US Senate, called today for Manhattan federal Judge John Koeltl to give civil rights attorney Lynne Stewart a sentence of home confinement with no time behind bars. Hawkins said that Stewart’s conviction ultimately should be overturned on appeal. “Lynne Stewart’s conviction for her role as a defense attorney for Abdel Rahman’s is a continuation of the Bush administration’s efforts to suppress civil liberties in America using the 9/11 attacks as a pretext,” noted Hawkins. more... 5 Comments
Ernst Huber | One of the oldest representative democracies of the world changed in the First World War into a controlled undemocratic form of state.. Local commercial television stations all over the US eagerly accepted the free propaganda films of the government. Money was earned that way. more... 0 Comments
NYCISPES | On Monday, July 10, 2006, New Yorkers gathered outside the Salvadoran Consulate on Park Avenue between 36th & 37th streets to protest the recent wave of repression in El Salvador, particularly the airforce attacks on students and administrators and subsequent police occupation of the National University. Activists denounced the repression and the US State Department’s support for the International Law Enforcement Academy (ILEA). ILEA has been condemned by human rights activists in El Salvador and elsewhere for its controversial refusal to prohibit US military instructors from teaching civilian law enforcement policy, strictly prohibited in the Peace Accords signed by El Salvador and the US government in 1992. more... 2 Comments

VF | Here is a link to a dramatic slideshow (296 photographs in all) chronicling the war crimes being perpetrated against the Palestinian people in Gaza during this the latest incursion by the Zionists. Of course they had to put some pictures in of the funeral of an Israel Destruction Force member who lost his life for “balance“ I suppose.

Fred Bergen | Workers need their own party, one that fights in the streets and at the elections for a platform of workers rights, including full rights for immigrants. The natural base for such a party is the labor unions. In fact, some unions have formed a labor party, but the party, endorsed by eight national unions, hasn't yet run a single candidate in its ten-year history. It is gathering signatures for ballot access in South Carolina, although it hasn't named any candidates yet. But regardless of whether the LP picks a candidate and runs a campaign this year in South Carolina, the union bureaucrats who control its political decisions will never challenge the Democrats. They would rather waste millions of dollars on anti-worker politicians and parties than risk setting in motion the workers, their own members, the class that is bound to upset the bureaucrats' comfortable "partnership" with the bosses, not to mention their own high-paying gigs. more... 0 Comments

scare | The US security forces and the military have committed atrocities, unlawful acts and international crimes on several occasions. Our country should accept the responsibility and the consequences of the war crimes committed by our leaders, some of our troops and their agents. If we are fighting on the side of good we have failed to do so, while at the same time paying a high price for our ignorance. more... 0 CommentsPage 71 | Page 69
