THE MANUFACTURE OF DISSENT
14 Jul 2004
Personally, we’re also strangely inspired by the "worst" kind of spectacles in American culture: not just the visual engineering of Top Gun Dubya on the USS Lincoln, but the seductive sleight of hand of corporate advertising and the tongue-in-cheek hubris of Las Vegas. We believe that progressives, in spite of our abiding Enlightenment-era faith in rationality, must learn to use spectacle as a tool of political communication – not grudgingly, but enthusiastically and free of guilt.

Attacks on revolution books detroit
13 Jul 2004
1. Revolution Books Outlet has had a booth at every Concert of Colors since its inception. This year, New Detroit has banned RBO from the event. It appears to be based on a bogus attempt to label RBO’s support for the struggle of the Palestinian people as anti-Jewish. This is at a time of an escalating war on the Palestinians by Israel, and the U.S., as part of their war on the peoples of the Middle East, and a fascist clampdown in the U.S. in which Arab people have been the first targets. RBO has been on point against this war and repression, providing literature which shows that the war on the Middle East is a strategic part of the U.S. empire’s plans for world domination,

Kerry will win, but will he really bring “justice to all”?
13 Jul 2004
The unfortunate reality is that John Kerry is owned by corporations such as Wal-Mart and the Heinz Ketchup Company, owned by his billionaire wife Teresa Heinz, who is bosom buddies with “Kenny Boy” Lay of Enron, part of the Bush/Houston corruptster clan.

Call to Boycott the "Free Speech Zones"
13 Jul 2004
The notion of a "Free Speech Zone" is absurd. The First Amendment guarantees the ability to speak out against state policies without fear of retaliation. The fact that the people of this country have willingly forfeited this basic human right to the State is dreadful. Now, the State is attempting to divert attention away from this erosion of the Bill of Rights by artificially constructing FSZs. Scattered pockets throughout the city that are set aside for free speech is not a manifestation of a democratic society.

Rosia Montana: The war for gold is killing people
13 Jul 2004
Modified: 11:05:25 AM
The Mining Company S.C. „R.M. Gold Corporation” offered the amount of 840,000,000 lei to the family physician Florin Georgescu, so that he would leave Rosia Montana . For a year, the largest commune in Romania was left without medical assistance. Many of the local inhabitants claim that doctor Georgescu was paid to leave, because he held certain medical files of patients who had died, or became gravely ill, because of the powerful psychological pressures they were subjected to, for several years, by the mercenaries of the Company.
The war for gold has begun to kill people.
