"One great tragedy of the current episode," writes Ford, "is that the [economic] crisis occurred at a moment when the remnants of the Left and Black movements in the U.S. have been neutralized by imperialism's Black champion."

Right to protest under attack from state and racists over Luton anti-war protest

11-03-2009 12:30

Media hysteria is reaching extreme heights over an anti-war protest at a soldiers' parade in Luton. It is being widely suggested that raising slogans such as that soldiers are murderers or violate human rights is somehow illegitimate and beyond the bounds of freedom.

As the documents were being prepared against Sudan’s head of state, ex-President Bush was preparing to initiate a series of high-paying speaking engagements beginning in Calgary Alberta on March 17. Bush’s visit to Alberta’s oil capital tests the consistency and authenticity of the Canadian government’s "unequivocal" position that "Canada is not and will not become a safe haven for persons involved in war crimes, crimes against humanity or other reprehensible acts."
