Appeasement or Cover-up
29 Oct 2005
Bush has announced that Libby is “innocent until proven guilty”, one law applies for disgraced officials while another for the Australian, David Hicks (and many others) who have been denied even the most basic human rights (while they rot for years in illegal detention centres around the world). Should we cite the flagrant double standard or rest in the assurance that a glaring hypocrisy and double standard would not pass unnoticed?

This president who has claimed the right to lock American citizens up without charge and to hold them indefinitely without the right to see a lawyer or to go to contest their captivity in court is suddenly touting all those rights, now that his own people are in the dock.

Boston Delegation to the World Social Forum 2005
28 Oct 2005
The 6th World Social Forum will take place during January 25-29, 2006 in the City of Caracas, Venezuela. This is a very important event for progressives worldwide who get together every year since 2001 to rethink our world and propose alternatives for a better world.

In the past, many progressive individuals from the Boston area have attended the Forum. This year, however, we would like to have a group of volunteers attend the Forum and carry with them the concerns, interests, demands and proposals from a wide sector of progressive organizations and individuals who struggle for social change in our region.

Fighting national oppression: Road to anti-war unity
28 Oct 2005
It is an axiom of Marxist class politics that the ruling class’s foreign policy is a direct extension of its domestic policy. Put simply, this means that their wars abroad are a continuation of their war at home—the war to enforce exploitation and oppression.

Speak Out! Against the BU Bio-Terrorism Lab --Nov. 2
27 Oct 2005
Speaking Out Against the BU Bio-Terrorism Lab in Roxbury:Speaking Out Against the BU Bio-Terrorism Lab in Roxbury:
The Coalition to Stop the BU Bio-Terrorism Lab in Boston is holding a community SPEAKOUT!

Wednesday November 2, 2005

11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

City Hall Plaza



Cambridge, MA (October 21, 2005) — Speak Out! will set up shop in Boston's government center to let community members and elected officials know the actions taken by BU and various supporters of the Lab are shortsighted, reckless and unjust. Those who oppose the lab believe the entire process is undermining the city's public health and safety and aggravating issues of environmental justice. "A week before the election, Speak Out will send a message to our elected officials that this lab should not and cannot be built in Boston," said Eva Skillicorn from Boston Mobilization.



Approximately twenty-five speakers will provide their own perspective on the lab with topics ranging from concerns over safety and procedure in the face of an outbreak to issues of environmental justice, as a disproportionate number of environmental hazards exists in the Roxbury/South End communities. For example, Roxbury has the highest rate of childhood asthma in the state and more hazardous waste sites than any other part of the city, according to lab opponent Patricia Hynes of the BU School of Public Health.



Speakers will include scientists, politicians, concerned citizens, and there will be artistic performances. In addition, participants and passer-bys can partake in activities range from taking pictures in hazmat suits to contacting their elected officials via cellular telephone. Those interested are also encouraged to express to their skepticism, disappointment or rage into a video camera to keep a record of all those opposed to the lab.
