Political prisoners in Uruguay again

29-11-2005 14:18

Second Freddom March
Today we are experiencing a very grave situation in Uruguay. There was a protest on November 4 in the financial district of Montevideo as part of a continental movilization against the IV Summit of the Americas, the presence of Bush on Latin American soil, the FTAA and the US-Uruguay Free Trade Agreement.

Mindwalk 21: I Want My Al-Jazeera TV!

28-11-2005 20:19

Al-Jazeera must be doing something right for Dictator Bush to want to bomb them. That is, if he hadn't bombed them in 2001 and 2003 already. George McGovern talks about Poppy Bush's opposition to the war. Jody Paulson compares GWB to Tricky Dick. An awesome speech by NBA Star Eaton Thomas, Ward Churchill brings it home.
