Picket in Support of Irish Political Prisoners - Tommorrow!

National Irish Freedom Committee | Irish Republican Political Prisoners in Maghaberry jail have been on protest since the June 19. They have issued five demands. These are:

* Free association
* Freedom of movement
* The right to full-time education
* Separate visiting facilities
* The right to organise their own landings
have declared that their resolve is strong, and that all attempts at criminalisation will fail. They have undertaken 24-hour, 48-hour and 72-hour fasts, and have refused to eat in their cells since the protest began. (The cells are equipped with a toilet.) There is an onus on everybody to exert whatever influence they can to resolve the situation in Maghaberry before the prisoners' health suffers.

The prisoners urgently need YOUR support!

U.S. Military Has Killed 127-238,000 Iraqi Civilians

Dave Lindorff | Most of the media have missed the main point about the Johns Hopkins/Lancet study of deaths caused by the U.S. invasion. Certainly it’s true that many of those deaths have been caused by Iraqi insurgents, civil war fighters and criminals, but nearly a third of them—nearly all civilians and a high proportion children--were the direct result of U.S. weapons fire.

Aborígenes del continente llaman a pasar de la resistencia al poder

Hernán Mena Cifuentes | Desde Alaska hasta la Patagonia, se escucha el clamor de esos millones de seres humanos, exigiendo sus derechos, negadas durante siglos por la sociedad y sus gobiernos que, siguiendo leyes y costumbres impuestas por los mal llamados descubridores, siguen imponiendo el poder heredado de aquellos, despojándolos de las pocas tierras que les quedan, envenenando el hábitat, donde a duras penas sobreviven en medio del hambre, pobreza y enfermedades a los que han sido condenados.

Rose Colored Glasses: A New & Unique Public Education & Deprogramming Video Series.

RCG Webmaster | I had two goals when making this series. To make a permanent historical record of these dark times, AND to make these videos available as cheap and easily mass-produced Super VCD's for apathetic and uninformed people to be able to watch on their Televisions. It is my hope that activists might use them as tools to educate and to inspire the populace. more...  0 Comments

Important data for anyone doing antiwar work from The Lancet

bartleby | Repsected British medical journal The Lancet has published new statistics on who is getting killed in Iraq.
It is important that you have an understanding of these numbers. Being knowledgable can go a long way toward impressing folks on the fence with the fact that you know of what you speak nd should be taken seriously. more...  0 Comments

North Korea nuke test: A justified measure of self-defense

Working Class Emancipation | We revolutionaries are for the unconditional defense of North Korea,
because the post-World-War-II liberation of Korea destroyed capitalism
in the North, driving out the capitalists and big landlords, and created
a workers' state that was deformed from the start by a conservative
bureaucracy on the Stalinist model. more...  0 Comments

Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) | The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) today congratulated the people and government of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea for successfully and safely carrying out its first-ever nuclear test and hailed the successful test as a “militant assertion of national sovereignty and the right of an independent country to develop its own powerful self-reliant defense capability amidst constant efforts by the US to impose its imperialist hegemony over the world, maintain its monopoly of nuclear weapons along with a few other powerful countries, and subvert the sovereign will of the DPRK.”

March 17: Help us retake Congress and the White House

United for Peace and Justice | March 19, 2007, will mark the 4th anniversary of the U.S. war and occupation in Iraq. The whole world knows this war was based on lies -- a war that never should have happened. And while we've seen tremendous growth of antiwar sentiment throughout this country, we have yet to develop a force that is strong enough to force the government to end the war and bring the troops home. Now, more than ever, we must re-double our efforts and re-energize our work. We've had 6 years of Republican lies; it's time to take back our country. It is our Patriotic duty to defend the precious liberties our Founding Fathers fought for, civil liberties that are being eroded daily by the Bush Administration. more...  7 Comments
