Freedom Rider: The Other Bailout

14-10-2008 14:32

It's hard to keep track of two mega-thieves at the same time. "The defense
bill is every bit as wasteful and just as much a harbinger of doom as the
much discussed Wall Street bailout, but has elicited hardly any debate, even
from progressives." And, just as with the bailout bill, Democrats in
Congress are ever ready to run up the white flag. "The collective popular
revulsion at the very presence of Bush in the White House has never stopped
Democratic party capitulation." War begets war. "Not only is military
spending completely unproductive, but it increases the likelihood of further
American acts of aggression.

(Im)Precision of U.S Bombing and the (Under)Valuation of an Afghan Life

12-10-2008 18:58

US/NATO bombs kill about ten times more Afghan civilians with a ton of our
"precision" bombs than we killed Serbs in 1999. More than 80% of Afghan
civilian deaths today caused by the US/NATO are due to close air support
attacks. They (Afghans) are only worth one-tenth of an Alaskan sea otter
rather than forty camels. We spend ten dollars on the military in
Afghanistan to pursue our geo-strategic aims and less than $1 on
reconstructing the everyday lives of Afghans devastated by thirty years of

Join the Big Blockade of Britain's nuclear bomb factory on October 27

09-10-2008 15:56

Photo by D. Viesnik
In 2006/7, Faslane 365 saw well over 1000 arrests during a year-long blockade of the Trident submarine base in Scotland. Last Easter, Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE) Aldermaston saw its biggest demonstration in two decades as 5000 people surrounded the base to mark the 50th anniversary of the first London to Aldermaston march. Trident Ploughshares now invites you to a major blockade of the Berkshire nuke factory, where billions of pounds are currently being spent developing new warhead facilities that will scupper nuclear disarmament for another 50 years. Help us uphold international law by blockading this factory of death in what promises to be a colourful celebration of life and people power. There is a role for everyone, arrestable or non-arrestable, young or old. This event is supported by CND, Block the Builders and the Aldermaston Women's Peace Camp.
