16-11-2003 09:39We are witnessing a period of massive struggles, violent repression, blatant intervention and monstrous distortions in the mass media, coverting victims into executioners, and executioners into victims. But the movements are advancing, painfully, but surely, burying their comrades, tending their wounded, nurturing their survivors and increasing their solidarity.
