*NATIONAL CALL TO ACTION*

BREAK UP WITH BANK OF AMERICA ON VALENTINES DAY
FEB 14th, 2009: MASS DAY OF ACCOUNT CLOSURES

STOP ALL EVICTIONS AND FORECLOSURES!
STOP FINANCING COAL AND CLIMATE CHANGE!

Contact: valentinesday (at) risingtideboston.org

This Valentine's Day, February 14th, 2009, join Rising Tide Boston (RTB) in demanding that Bank of America stop its funding of the dirty and deadly coal industry and demanding, in solidarity with City Life/Vide Urbana, stop its unjust foreclosures and evictions of working families. Closing your account with Bank of America (BOA) is an important step in bringing closure to this unhealthy relationship. In Boston, we are planning a day of coordinated bank account closures in at least two locations, and encourage people in other places to organize something similar.

The Crime of the Zionists and the Transnational Elite and the Stand of the Left
06 Jan 2009
the present brutal Zionist crime in Palestine is in effect part and parcel of the same systemic violence which yesterday, in the form of raw physical violence, killed and maimed hundreds of thousands of people in Yugoslavia, Afghanistan and Iraq, today, in the form of economic violence, condemns more and more millions of people all over the world to unemployment, poverty and misery and tomorrow, could materialise as a combination of both economic and physical violence in the countries of the transnational elite itself and the countries dependent on it, with the social explosion in Greece last December being the precursor of this. The present massacre in Gaza is then interpreted as a campaign for “regime change” and the Zionist media campaign of pure distortion and lies is examined. Next, the usual stand of the Left of keeping an equal distance from perpetrators and victims is analysed and, finally, the real causes of this bloodbath are discussed, as well as the only real solution, which, according to the Inclusive Democracy project has to take the form of a multicultural state in Palestine as a first stage to a confederal Inclusive Democracy of the peoples living in Palestine, is described.
