Taking the 7 Talks to the Proletariat

RosaRL | The recent correspondence on taking out Bob Avakian’s 7 Talks, especially into proletarian communities, was very important (see Revolution #60 and #61 for articles on this).

Dancing around the flame: A Letter to Helen Thomas

Alan Korbin | Dear Helen Thomas: Why are we all dancing around the real motivations for our invasion of Iraq and our whole new "foreign policy"? I love what you write. You take things in the right direction. You remind journalists that they have some objective things to take care of, and set an example of doggedness and fight that is all but gone from the press corps. Yet...I still don't really hear anyone, yourself included (I could be mistaken here and perhaps missed something) talking DAILY about a daily reality: why we are really there! more...  0 Comments

European powers refuse to send more troops to Afghanistan

reposted | Bitterness and general rancour characterise the relations within NATO one week after its senior military commander called for 2,500 reinforcements to be urgently dispatched to assist the 8,000 British, Canadian and Dutch troops caught up in savage combat in Afghanistan’s southern provinces.

UFPJ: We Are Marching -- Permit or No Permit

Susan UFPJ | On Tuesday, Sept. 19, President Bush will be speaking at the United Nations as part of an election-year public-relations push on his disastrous Iraq War. The New York City Police Department has refused to grant a permit to United for Peace and Justice to march anywhere near the United Nations.
