10-09-2004 14:32

July 2004, 34minutes, Spanish with English subtitles, VHS PAL/NTSC
Produced by the Bolivarian Circle of the Global Women’s Strike
Venezuela is the world’s 5th largest oil exporter, yet 80% of its population lives in poverty. In 1998 President Hugo Chávez was elected to use the oil revenue to tackle poverty. In April 2002 a coup against him was defeated by the millions who took to the streets. A few months later the élite and the CIA paralyzed Venezuela’s oil company PDVSA to bring Chávez down. Oil workers took over and worked round the clock to recover production.
In this documentary José Bodas, Luís Felix Marín, Jesús Montilla and Tania Suárez tell how they saved PDVSA and how they are organizing to “put the oil industry at the service of humanity”.

Iraqi Exit Strategy Plan and Analysis

10-09-2004 02:40

I have adapted a statement that was made by the venerable Buddhist monk, scholar, and poet Thich Nhat Hanh in Washington, D.C on June 1, 1966 regarding the disasters of The Vietnam War. It is astounding how closely his insight relates to the war in Iraq today in 2004. I have juxtaposed and substituted all the Vietnam references and language with Iraqi references and language. The transposition that follows is certainly discerning. Here is my adaptation.

IRAQ: Medical Facilities, Pigeons & Propaganda.

09-09-2004 07:37

Helen visits Al-Nahrwan, 30 km from Baghdad. Here she visits a rudimentary clinic. Operations are as little as $3. There is, however, no safety net if things go wrong. There is no anaesthetic, just Diazapam. The procedures were carried out professionally, with what little facilities were available. However it simply isn't acceptable that Iraqis should have this as a medical service.

"The war against terror must be a war against poverty.. Washington reserved to itself the right to attack other states of the region.. The most important corrections should be made in two political fields, the unsolved conflicts in the Middle East and the unequal distribution of chances of development.. Distributive justice is increasingly a demand of security policy, not only of morality and humanity.."

Iraq war continues to deteriorate

05-09-2004 21:06


Far from cooling down as our leaders and corporate media mouthpieces would have us believe, the war in Iraq continues to “deteriorate.” Now “officially” 985 GI’s have been killed in that devastated land. I believe the true figure is much higher (see attached discussion). Good estimates of the number of Iraqis killed and wounded are hard to come up with, but they are massive and heartbreaking, and like our own, those casualties are rising. This does not include the effects of depleted uranium contamination which will become known soon enough.

This is the madness (see madness of emperor George) of a ruling class being forced to contemplate a world where they will not “be 1st in line.” Unthinkable. I’m afraid that we are seeing that no crime will be considered to terrible if it could allow our masters just a little more time at the heights of their rule. They are drunk on power. But their hangover is well on its way. Please read and spread the enclosed notes widely. jamie
