USA: Capitalism Threatens Us All
11 Mar 2006
The stakes are higher than ever. It's becoming increasingly clear to millions of workers that even in the "best of times", capitalism simply doesn't work anymore. The corruption, greed, and mismanagement of the system has reached unheard of proportions. Capitalism has always been an exploitative, oppressive system, but its existence was historically justified by the fact that it was able to drive technology and productivity forward.

US drumbeat against Iran threatens new war of aggression
11 Mar 2006
With the US war and occupation in Iraq fast approaching its third anniversary, those in the Bush administration responsible for launching this unprovoked aggression based on lies about weapons of mass destruction and through intimidating the American people with fabricated threats of terror are once again beating the same war drums, this time against Iran.
Washington has succeeded in having charges over Iran’s nuclear program referred to the United Nations Security Council, where a response is to be debated beginning next week. Representatives of the council’s five permanent members met on Friday to draft a statement on the dispute, which the US is demanding include direct condemnation of the Teheran government and a possible threat of UN sanctions.

Libby WILL WALK in CIA Leak: Boston's Brewster-Jennings Employees Went Public
11 Mar 2006
LIBBY WILL WALK in CIA Leak Case -- (1) US Attorney Partrick Fitzpatrick can't successfully prosecute him because national-security concerns prevent Libby's lawyers from getting CIA records they need to mount a defense, and this is required for a trial. A federal judge today ordered that Libby's lawyers be provided with summaries of Presidential Daily Briefings, but that will never happen. The CIA will object and Bush will cite "executive privilege."

(2) Libby never should have been indicted for leaking former CIA officer Valerie Plame's name, because her so-called cover company, Brewster-Jennings Associates (BJA) in Boston, was not undercover. Former employees like Jean C. Edwards and Robert Lawrence Ellmann even advertise their associations with the company on the Internet! They were doing so before Brewster-Jennings and Valerie Plame came to light and they still are.

Mar08_IWD_Makati_022.sized.jpgWomen of different political groups and professions were present at the March. Thirteen major groups joined forces under the banner “Martsa ng Kababaihan”. Present in big numbers were members of Akbayan, LABAN ng MASA, Bayan, Black and White Movement, women advocate groups like Gabriela Women’s Party, Welga ng Kababaihan, and WomenSpeak. In an interesting twist of history, this was the first time that the women’s movements gathered together in a common cause since the Marcos dictatorship.

10 Mar 2006
The land of International penny stock fraud makes for strange bedfellows and here often right wing cons of all stripes lie together.So it should come as no surprise that by touting or allowing his name to be used to tout a Michael Zwebner pump and dump penny stock scam(one of many over the years) President of Israel Moshe Katzav not only mixes his name and reputation with American mafia and international crooks and gangsters but also Mr.Zwebner's business partner in a number of scams over the years including UCSY or Universal Communications Systems is the infamous Mohamed Hadid,a Palestinian of ill repute connected to the Herndon,Virginia Muslim charity suspected in both money laundering and terrorist funding activities,including Al Qaeda.

INTERNATIONAL DAY OF ACTION FOR BABY SEALS!
10 Mar 2006
Each spring in Atlantic Canada, over 300,000 defenseless baby harp seals are massacred on the ice floes. In a matter of weeks, a pristine white nursery turns crimson, with hundreds of thousands of lifeless, skinless bodies strewn all over the ice. This industrial slaughter nets these off-season fishermen only about $40 a pelt.



The massacre is perpetrated by a few thousand Canadians who beat and shoot these seals and skin many of them alive. The money these sealers receive for this is only about 5% of their yearly income from fishing. If these fishermen only stayed home for an extra two weeks, they would continue to earn the Employment Insurance benefits that they earn every year during the off-season.

The consequences of the US-led war against Iraq
10 Mar 2006
In speaking on the political situation in Iraq, I propose to expand on the theme outlined by David North in his opening remarks: examining—and responding to—the prognosis that is advanced by the defenders of the existing economic and social order, and by the Bush administration in particular.
In March 2003, the official prognosis concerning Iraq—or, more accurately, the official propaganda—went broadly as follows:
The US-led invasion was a necessary and justified intervention to remove a brutal dictator whose regime threatened world peace and stability by its efforts to acquire weapons of mass destruction and its support for international terrorism.
