A Preview of the DNC
dnc.jpgMuch has been made by many a liberal Democrat about the supposed "different-ness" of their political party, one that they claim has miraculously found a way to take billions of dollars of money every year from racist, sexist, land-raping capitalists and simultaneously support the liberation of women from patriarchy, people of color from white supremacy, workers from bosses, and the earth from destructive abuse. Anarchists reject these easily apparent lies every day, and they plan to do so again at the 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver Colorado.

Free Gaza Boats Break the Siege of Gaza; International Support Crucial to Success

The arriving boats were greeted by thousands of jubilant Gazans and former Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh. Intense international support was crucial in persuading Israel to allow the boats through.

Protesters Say No to Psychologists' Involvement in Torture
apa.jpgOn Saturday, August 16, about two hundred protesters gathered in Boston to protest psychologists’ involvement in abusive interrogations and illegal detention. People gathered at the American Psychological Association Annual Convention to support a call to the APA to forbid their members from cooperating in any way in torture and reject our government's use of "enhanced interrogation techniques." Co-sponsors of this action included Psychoanalysts for Social Responsibility, the Coalition for an Ethical Psychology, and Psychologists for an Ethical APA. In the next month, APA members will be voting on a referendum that would make any participation in detainee interrogations a violation of their code of ethics.

DNC Protest, Split, and the Principled Stand of Cynthia McKinney
123 r68-logo.jpg"As the United States activated Navy ships and the Air Force to begin an airlift of non-specified goods into the former Soviet state of Georgia, and military exercises began in the Persian Gulf near Iran, I received communications from certain individuals among the Colorado Greens who were organizing campaign support events there, suggesting that I not participate in an anti-war program being organized by other individuals in Colorado." -Cynthia McKinney

In addition, the Green Party of Colorado has issued false statements to the press and all over the internet claiming that Green Party presidential candidate Cynthia McKinney will not be participating in the Recreate ’68 events. Here is one such statement from Dave Chandler, co-chair of the Colorado Green Party, Green Party candidate for U.S. Congress in the Seventh Congressional District, and supporter of a Denver ballot measure that would seize the vehicles of illegal immigrants:

“Cynthia McKinney, Green Party candidate for President, and Rosa Clemente, Green Party candidate for Vice President are NOT participating in any Recreate ‘68 activities. Both candidates, and the Green Party of Colorado, are refuting this announcement and are stating that neither candidate, nor the Green Party of Colorado, are in any way associated with Recreate ’68, nor will any of their candidates be speaking at or attending any event, nor are they in any way associated with the group Recreate ’68.”

This is a blatant lie. Cynthia McKinney and Rosa Clemente will be speaking at the Recreate ’68 events.
