08-02-2006 03:21An Invitation for the Creation of an Autonomous Space During the 4th European Social Forum (Spring, 2006, Athens) This spring, the 4th ESF will take place in Athens. Thousands (maybe tens of thousands) of people from all around Europe, from an entire galaxy of social and political movements, organizations and collectives, will meet in our city to get to know each other, to exchange views and practices, to strengthen and extend the networks of resistance and creation, or even build new ones.

08-02-2006 03:10A new era in the Palestinian liberation struggle is upon us. Rather than just a electoral repudiation of Fatah’s long years of corruption, mismanagement and collaboration with the Israeli plutocracy, the extraordinary success of Hamas at the polls comes from the gut, the depths of despair of an entire population.
08-02-2006 00:21We start out with some sound from a small anti-immigrant rally in Vista, Ca. if less than 20 people constitutes a rally. A poem called True Lies performed by Taalam Acey, Jody Paluson with Bush v.s. Nixon and Gore Vidal's take on the State of the Union 2006 with a Raymond Lafferty music bed.

07-02-2006 18:49With great power comes great responsibility, and when you’re “commander-in-chief” that means responsibility for the crimes of your troops. 60 years ago this month, American troops executed a Japanese general using precisely that argument.
07-02-2006 18:15The people who brought us to disaster in Iraq are seeking to justify their long-planned invasion. We seek to justify when we know what we are engaged in is wrong. Since we know these War Criminals planned this Act of Aggression before being installed to power, NOTHING will now legitimize it.
Why are these criminals still in power anyway ... ?

07-02-2006 16:53The ill-conceived and seriously flawed Crossrail Bill, now before a UK House of Commons Select committee, has been exposed as a sham by the chief executive of Canary Wharf, no less. No wonder the Crossrail Bill is not popular with the rest of the community in Tower Hamlets. They are demonstrating outside the Council building AM Wed 8 Feb 2006. The Council has been shown to have colluded with the hype for Crossrail plan without telling the community which now faces devastation unless the Bill is fundamentally altered or even scrapped in its present form.
07-02-2006 16:503 'Weapons Inspectors' had their s14 charges dropped today, following a vist to Brighton arms factory EDO MBM in March 2005. The prosecution decided not to present evidence against the 3 after the judge ruled that the defence should see copies of the correspondence between the arms company and Sussex police. The acquittal is likely to have an impact on the injunction that the company has taken out against activists.

07-02-2006 14:26Cuba remains a Latin American anomaly: an undemocratic government that represses nearly all forms of political dissent. President Fidel Castro, now in his forty-seventh year in power, shows no willingness to consider even minor reforms. Instead, his government continues to enforce political conformity using criminal prosecutions, long- and short-term detentions, mob harassment, police warnings, surveillance, house arrests, travel restrictions, and politically-motivated dismissals from employment. The end result is that Cubans are systematically denied basic rights to free expression, association, assembly, privacy, movement, and due process of law.
