Spread the Wealth of Wall Street, Big Oil, Tax-Evader Fox!
faux.jpgThe fascist Fox News of Rupert Murdoch has been whipping up a mania and false fear against socialism, Marxism and “spreading the wealth” But it is protecting only its own tax evasion and the speculative profit, predatory lending and price-gouging of Wall Street and Big Oil.

Led by rabid fascists Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity, Fox News is conjuring up a false phobia and paranoia against socialism and Marxism. Frothing in the mouth, Fox right-wing commentators are spreading the false fear that socialism and Marxism will grab income from the working-class and middle-class.

Bailout Bush (video)
bailout.jpgAbout 25 protesters gathered at Park Street in Boston Thursday, Sept. 25 to protest Bush's bailout of Wall Street. As we look upon the demise of capitalism and its inherant greed, people all over the US Thursday held protests to say "Foreclose the CEOs-not our homes."

A lame (very lame) duck president "Bailout" Bush(aka Markus) showed up at the Boston rally to panhandle passersby for a few spare billions to rescue Wall Street(or "War" Street--they finance and profit from US wars).

PHILIPPINES: Suspend US Military Deployments to Mindanao
phil1.jpgA broad coalition of NGOs, social movements, and political parties from Mindanao and the rest of the country today called for all US military deployments in Mindanao suspended pending the conclusion of a fair and thorough probe by lawmakers.

The Citizens’ Peace Watch, a group formed to monitor what it fears as the growing and permanent US military presence in the South, reiterated its recommendations from a fact-finding mission it conducted in Zamboanga City and Sulu last February. Members of the mission claim to have seen with their own eyes — and to have pictures of — the US’ military structures inside Camp Navarro in Zamboanga City.

Coddling of Palin is False Feminism, Disguised Sexism, and Right-Wing Anti-Working-Women Thatcherism
The call of so-called feminists to coddle Palin is really disguised sexism and based on a medieval, male-chauvinist mentality that women are weak and fragile and should be protected. We don’t need an American Margaret Thatcher, an icon and poster child for right-wing policies that harm poor and middle-class working women, the majority of women. It’s time to expose Palin for what she really is.

Some women groups and advocates are screaming that media bashing of Sarah Palin, the Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is sexism. In truth, their call for media and the rest of the public to go slow in critiquing Sarah Palin is driven by real sexism. They are virtually saying: She’s a woman, who have been oppressed, and so don’t bash her, don’t allow the media and the public to grill her and criticize her sharply, like they do the male candidates. Actually, this kind of thinking smacks of a medieval male chauvinist, sexist mentality that said: Women are weak and fragile, so they should be protected, and put on a pedestal.

Celebrating Black August: From the Streets to Prison Resistance
soledad.jpgA Black Panther member and author of two books, Blood in My Eye and Soledad Brother, George Jackson was killed by prison guards while serving his term in San Quentin prison on August 21, 1971. A year earlier, his brother Jonathan Jackson was killed for taking hostage a courtroom to demand the freedom of his brother and five other San Quentin prisoners. Black August originated from these events to honor the fallen, and it spread into a practice of self-reflection and self-determination in the black resistance movement, particularly within prison.

Following is an interview with Kazi Toure, ex-political prisoner and co-chair of the Jericho Movement about Black August history and the current struggles against the prisoner industrial complex.
