Simultaneous Policy - A Simple Solution?

18-11-2003 12:55

"How can we the people get our leaders to listen to us and not just to the rich and powerful?

"How can we make our values their values, values like:
fair trade and decent livelihoods
respect for life, health and environmental sustainability
true democracy – not 'corporatocracy'
freedom, security and equal opportunity for all
zero tolerance for terror of all kinds – state terror and domestic tyranny included
unity in diversity among peoples, nations and cultures
an end to weapons of mass destruction and to war itself as an obsolete means of conflict resolution ..."

The little old lady named Lindis Percy
(Go, Granny, go, Granny, go Granny go)
Has a pretty little flower bed of white gardenias
(Go, Granny, go, Granny, go Granny go)
But parked high up on a Buckingham gate
Is an upside down symbol against occupier hate

And everybody's sayin' that there's nobody meaner
Than the little old lady named Lindis Percy
(She climbs real fast and she jumps real hard)
She's the terror of the Palace Guard

Letter from America - THANK YOU FOR YOUR PROTESTS!

17-11-2003 21:55

Seattle Police Attacking Americans at LEIU Protests, June 2, 2003
I am an American activist who is appalled by our President Bush, and am writing to support your Bush protests from America. I saw Bush on American TV last night. An announcer from the UK said he had never seen this much vehemence towards a U.S. president in the UK EVER. Bush's response was that he was HAPPY to go to a country where protest/free speech was openly embraced and allowed. The hypocrisy here is unbelievable.

For the life of Fatemeh

Fatemeh's cooking facilities
Fatemeh's misfortune was to be born in Khashem Zeneh in 1923 - a time when storm clouds were gathering beyond the horizon and Jewish immigration to Palestine was rising. Balfour had made his famous Declaration in 1917 and decisions were being taken in far away places
that would seal the fate of Bedouin tradition and culture in the Negev forever.

ESF: Another Venue is Possible: Negri vs Callinicos

16-11-2003 22:57

It’s certainly possible to level a critique of the social forum process as elevating certain individuals to movement stars, something the radical edge of the movement has always rejected for a variety of reasons. The Negri/Calliniocs debate was billed as exactly that however, a battle between two movement stars perhaps broadly representing the two major ideological tendencies within the anti-capitalist movement currently in contestation. The title of the debate was “Multitude or Working Class”.

Imperialism and Resistance in Latin America

16-11-2003 09:39

We are witnessing a period of massive struggles, violent repression, blatant intervention and monstrous distortions in the mass media, coverting victims into executioners, and executioners into victims. But the movements are advancing, painfully, but surely, burying their comrades, tending their wounded, nurturing their survivors and increasing their solidarity. Ultimately, with organization, consciousness and audicity we will win, not only because the cause of liberty and equality is just, but because we dare to struggle.
