"Free Trade" and Government Repression in Ecuador: an eyewitness account
Globalization is supposed to make communication easier. But when the leaders of Ecuador`s social movements tried to deliver a letter critiquing neoliberal globalization to Summit of the Presidents of S. America, they were arrested, roughed up, and their giant letter was destroyed. This highlights the need for international support for the massive protest planned at the 7th summit of the Free Trade Area of the Americas in Ecuador in October. (article 1)

Open Letter to Beverly Hughes - Why Does New Labour Deport the Victims of Tortur

01-08-2002 17:18

The letter relates to an Iranian whose health, mental and physical, has been broken by quite horrific torture in an Iranian prison. No matter we have good economic relations with the regime there, so the 'mistake' made in granting asylum has now been reversed. Would be grateful if it was prominently printed.

Were is the left wing really coming from? They hate each other and have always been at each other’s throats. Four or five left wing parties in the UK. It beggars belief. Oh yes I know we now have the Socialist Alliance, but this new entity mainly consists of the Socialist Party and the Marxists and they are always arguing with each other. It matters little anyway, because all of these parties and most of their members have got their heads permanently preoccupied with international issues.
