It’s as if we were on a runaway train headed toward a precipice, with the mercenaries of the Republican and Democratic parties battling for control of the engine, and us, the passengers, hanging on for dear life to keep from being thrown from the train. Will we gain control of the locomotive before it’s too late?

oxford indymedia SCREENING - Sunday September 12th, 7.30pm, Asian Cultural Centre, Manzil Way, off Cowley Road, Oxford.
A screening of Calle y Media Collective's scintillating film:
"BOLIVARIAN VENEZUELA: PEOPLE AND STRUGGLE OF THE FOURTH WORLD WAR"
Countering the mainstream media's depiction of President Hugo Chavez as an authoritarian nationalist, this film shows the Bolivarian revolution as democratic and coming from below, directed and controlled by the Venezuelan popular movements. Come and see this powerful film to understand why the recent referendum on Chavez' presidency was won, and how Venezuela suggests a model for the Americas and the rest of the world.
01-09-2004 09:03A coalition of 10 British NGOs including the major ones like Oxfam, Jubilee and Greenpeace have written a letter complaining about the UK European Social Forum organising process and saying it has been characterised by a lack of transparency and openness. Finaly this can officialy end the myth peddled by the authoritarian left that those who have been critical of the UK ESF process are simply wreckers, splitters or crazy anarchists who don't represent anyone!
While the NGOs don't mention them by name, they're criticising the SWP (Socialist Workers Party) and SA (Socialist Action) for dominating a meeting to decide speakers names through weight of numbers. This is a significant moment. Reports from the meeting also revealed what appeared to be willful miscounting of votes and other undemocractic behaviour. The letter has been published ahead of the european esf assembly meeting in brussels this coming weekend.
