The Yankee Bases and the Latin American Sovereignty (by Fidel Castro)

12-08-2009 22:28

US military presence in the Americas (2009)
The war on drugs is a pretext to establish military bases in the whole hemisphere.

The arguments used for the installation of seven air and naval US bases in Colombia are an insult to intelligence.

The Yankee forces could promote a dirty war as they did in Nicaragua, and even recruit soldiers of foreign nationalities who are trained by them and attack any country. But the combative, brave and patriotic people of Colombia would hardly let itself be dragged into a war against a people from a sister nation like Venezuela.

Very hastily arranged, but featuring a local worker from green electric supplier Ecotricity, a local Green Party councillor, the local Labour & Cooperative (backbench & rebellious) MP David Drew, and a random bloke who turned up and joined in because he agreed with us.

Terror Culture

12-08-2009 16:36

You’ve probably seen the billboards: A bustling town centre under the watchful eye of a CCTV camera – “A bomb won’t go off here because weeks before a shopper reported someone studying the CCTV cameras.” Another shows a wheelie bin with cleaning products poking out with the line, “these chemicals won’t be used in a bomb because a neighbour reported the dumped containers to the Anti-Terrorist Hotline.”

Bad apples vs social change: policing after the G20 protests

12-08-2009 15:01

Since the G20 protest in London this year the policing methods used over April 1st and 2nd have been dissected and discussed regularly in the media and in parliament. Reports have been produced and protests condemning police violence have been organised. Thousands of words have been published both in mainstream and independent media sources discussing civil liberties and issues around the right to protest. But has anything actually changed?

Whose the Real Hypocrite Secretary Clinton?

12-08-2009 14:20

"In recent days, Narco News has reported that, in the three months prior to the June 28 coup d’etat in Honduras, the US-funded Millennium Change Corporation (MCC) gave at least $11 million US dollars to private-sector contractors in Honduras and also that since the coup it has doled out another $6.5 million.

The latter revelation – that the money spigot has been left on even after the coup – comes in spite of claims by the State Department that it has placed non-humanitarian funding “on pause” pending a yet-unfinished review."

More than a movement -- the search for 9/11 truth is an awakening

12-08-2009 13:04

As I’ve dug deeper into who’s really out there spreading the truth about 9/11, I’ve found an inspiring assemblage of ordinary people from all walks of life.

Beyond the basic questions of who really did it, and all the hows and whys that go with it, diving into 9/11 truth for many becomes a personal and even spiritual process. It stirs us to ask deep and profound questions:

Who am I and what do I really believe? How do I know what I know? How would it change my life if I admit that “Dad” or any authority figure is really capable of the unthinkable? What does it mean to wake up and tell the truth every day -- to myself, first, and then to those around me who may ridicule me for what I say?
