War & Peace

Labor and the Middle East War

New York City Labor Against the War | For weeks, Israel has turned Lebanon into a killing ground, slaughtering and maiming thousands
of people, destroying the civilian infrastructure, and turning a quarter of the population into
refugees in their own land. At the same time, it continues to brutalize Palestinians in the West
Bank and Gaza. more...  0 Comments

Protesting Rice's Visit to the UN: Bring the Slaughter in Lebanon to a Halt

World Can't Wait | Today a group World Can't Wait activists and others gathered in front of the United Nations Headquarters in New York for an emergency protest of Condoleezza Rice's visit there. Rice's appearance was part of the process of authoring a UN resolution for a "ceasefire" in Israel's vicious war of aggression on Lebanon - a war made possible by, and enjoying the approval and direct military support of the Bush regime. more...  3 Comments

Be aware of the time. It is now 1984.

From Joe | "At a time such as this—in the midst of spectacular claims from London and Washington, a media barrage supporting them, and a massive disruption of commercial flights resulting from extreme security measures—it is all the more imperative that people not suspend their capacity for critical thought and political judgement."

Protest Condi Rice TODAY at the UN: Noon until...

World Can't Wait | Emergency p rotest today: NOON - Dag Hammarskjold Plaza across the street from the United Nations (E. 47th St. & 1st Ave.)

Over 1,000 dead, 1 in 4 Lebanese displaced from their homes, and a whole country destroyed: these are war crimes. And the Bush regime has given its full support, encouragement, and weapons to Israel to carry out atrocities. The Bush regime's "war on terrorism" has meant nothing but torture, bombs, and devastation for the people of the Middle East. And we must take responsibility to STOP the injustices being committed by our government in our names.

TODAY: Condoleezza Rice will be at the UN working out a vote on a
resolution supposedly to end the conflict. From the beginning of Israel's attack on Lebanon, the Bush regime has worked to prevent any ceasefire or even the mildest of restraint on Israel, and has been whipping up further justification for attacking Iran. War criminal Condoleezza Rice has no right to determine any measures taken in the Middle East conflict and must be protested today.

The World Can't Wait - Drive Out the Bush Regime will be outside of the UN this afternoon and demanding these war crimes be brought to a halt. If you're in NYC and have a conscience, be there.

Clearing The Path For The U.S. Attack on Iran?

From Jamie | "Specialists on Iran and Hezbollah have long believed that the missiles Iran has supplied to Hezbollah were explicitly intended to deter an Israeli attack on Iran. Ephraim Kam, a specialist on Iran at Israel's Jaffe Center for Strategic Studies, wrote in December 2004 that Hezbollah's threat against northern Israel was a key element of Iran's deterrent to a US attack."

Carl Davidson after all these years: Still right in form, still right in essence

Roy Rollin | A while back, in a similar such discussion, "the burningman" aptly described Carl Davidson's as one of "those…type(s)…who were once revolutionary and were defeated, but now spend their energy limiting the range of (what's) possible (by) permanently attaching the activist left to the Democratic Party." I couldn't have said it better myself.

Israeli war crimes aimed at “cleansing” south Lebanon

By Bill Van Auken | On Tuesday, Israeli warplanes struck the southern Lebanese town of Ghaziyeh, killing at least 14 people. Missiles demolished civilian homes just as some 1,500 mourners were participating in a procession to bury 15 of their relatives and neighbors slain just the day before. The explosions sent the crowd running in panic, dropping shrouded corpses in the street.
Ghaziyeh’s normal population of 23,000 has reportedly been swelled by a wave of refugees. It is a predominantly Shiite town near Sidon, a region where most of the population is composed of Sunni Muslims. Many people from further south had fled there to stay with relatives and friends. more...  1 Comments

Providence: Protesters chase off 21st Century Klan ride

red Bergen |
The protesters, organized by the International Socialist Organzation, the Workers International League, Working Class Emancipation, and independent activists, clearly scored a minor victory by demoralizing the racists and discouraging them from returning. But as this writer emphasized in a speech at the protest, only the massive, independent action of the working class can decisively defeat the racist vigilante groups like the Klan, the Minutemen, and the Paul Revere riders and, most importantly, overthrow the capitalist state apparatus that stimulates and defends them. more...  0 Comments
