Palestinians and Internationals light a candle for peace on christmas day

new year, party and thanks

26-12-2004 20:09

Two things: rampART is having a new years eve party so if you are looking for a place to get together with friends and not spend and arm and a leg on entry and over priced piss like beer, rampART may be the place to be. If you'd like to get involved, perhaps by DJing or performing, let us know ASAP. Details on

Secondly, I just wanted to say thanks to everyone involved in the fund raising party on the 17th/18th - everyone that performed, everyone that provided workshops, everyone that
came, everyone that donated some cash and everyone that helped put it together or
promote the event...

The US are losing the war in Iraq, the occupation you dont get to hear!

26-12-2004 19:41

Here is an article that has been sent around and is quite clear what the US are doing in Iraq. This goes inline with what is happening in relation to the elections, with poling stations being based in schools - and have been blown up by the resistance.

Allot of people would like to tell you that the resistance is just the Bathist Party but it is infact allot bigger than just the Bathists.


All of this, along with the massacre in Fallujah and a decade long era of sanctions, that killed over one million children, for the "Democratic Parties" is a price worth paying - for a seat in the new Iraqi parliament.

ASF Africa social forum

"The story of the poor goes round and round. But what about the story of the rich? The story not being told is that of
the beneficiaries of slavery and colonialism. The story of exploitation that put us into this dispensation, commodified our own life for profit. They divided and ruled. Can we unite and live? Can we unite for the world that will be our world? Let us rise up and begin to tell this story* of why they continue to be rich, continue to plunder." --
