12-08-2004 21:31

All offences could prompt arrest under Home Office proposals

Implementing the Nicaragua Plan in Venezuela

12-08-2004 17:41

The International Republican Institute:
Implementing the Nicaragua Plan in Venezuela

International Republican Institute (“IRI”): A U.S. based non-governmental entity founded upon suggestion by former President Ronald Reagan, the IRI is a major recipient of NED funds for various projects around the world. In March 2002, just one month before the April 2002 coup d’etat, IRI received an impressive $300,000 grant from the NED for “Strengthening Political Parties” in Venezuela. IRI received an additional $116,000 in February 2003, at the culmination of the 64-day opposition imposed lockout that devastated the Venezuelan economy. One of the main political parties participating in both the coup and the lockout, Primero Justicia, is a major benefactor of IRI funds. IRI’s massive financing for its Venezuelan projects has almost exclusively been funneled into developing and strengthening political parties to oppose the Chávez Administration. IRI also maintains close contact with the U.S. Embassy, which has also been a backer of the opposition’s undemocratic tactics.

US revealed to be secretely funding opponents of Chavez

12-08-2004 17:34

The NED awarded a significant $53,400 grant to the Venezuelan group, Súmate, in September 2003, for the sole purpose of promoting a campaign for a recall referendum on President Chávez’s mandate. Súmate was established solely with the objective of removing President Chávez from office prematurely through a recall referendum, and has no credentials or history to evidence its accomplishments or democratic ideals. Nevertheless, the NED willingly handed Súmate the $53,400 needed to fund the entire referendum campaign and to develop propaganda encourage Venezuelans to vote against Chávez.

Youth uprisings in UK - the beginning of the British intifada?

12-08-2004 08:40

It's hard to tell from these mainstream articles what's going on, but in both cases there are clashes between young people and cops - perhaps the ongoing social cleansing against the young is finally bearing unwanted fruit for the state. Let's hope so...

History repeating itself in Hebron

11-08-2004 18:37

Even for Palestine, Hebron is shocking. The area has a population of 500,000 - the largest Palestinian Authority in the West Bank - but the city of Hebron was divided into three ‘zones’ in 1997. Settlers moved in and around the city centre in the eighties, and Hebron is characterized by some of the worst ethnic violence in the region.
