What is the Bamako Appeal? - 10/7 - 7pm
01 Oct 2006
The Bamako Appeal is a statement issued by a meeting held in Bamako, Mali, on January 18 2006, an initiative taken by the WFA – the World Forum for Alternatives, headed by eminent Egyptian economist Samir Amin and eminent Belgian historian François Houtart. The document makes a major call for (and puts forward a major 10-point program for) an organized, worldwide redoubling of resistance to the current phase of imperialism and the building of a world movement. The analysis and discussion of the document has been prominent in World Social Forum circles and it might be an important discussion piece in the upcoming WSF 2007 in Nairobi.

Shock & Awe Revisited
30 Sep 2006
While it may have appeared to American T.V. viewers that 'Shock and Awe' was merely a catchy media label for the U.S. bombing campaign in Iraq, its actual origins, and a whole theory of warfare, are found in a 1996 advisory report published by the National Defense University.
