Execution of Stanley "Tookie" Williams
14 Dec 2005
Stanley “Tookie” Williams, co-founder of the Crip street gang in Los Angeles, was executed in San Quentin Prison on December 13 just after midnight.

California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger coldly and callously refused to grant him clemency, saying that “the facts do not justify overturning the court decision.” Even though Tookie Williams had changed and became a very outspoken advocate against gang violence and for peace. They showed him no mercy. But it is deeper than this. In a highly political statement, Schwarzenegger also said that Tookie Williams' 1998 book Life In Prison was “dedicated to people like Assata Shakur, Mumia Abu Jamal” and particularly “Black militant George Jackson” which, according to Schwarzenegger, “is a significant indicator that Williams is not reformed and that he still sees violence and lawlessness as legitimate means to address societal problems.”

WOT - (NYT) Chinese Government attempts to censor internet news of Dongzhou massacre (with comments by Ben Seattle)
14 Dec 2005
Modified: 02:15:27 AM
As described by the New York Times article (below) the
corrupt, revisionist (ie: fake marxist) government of China
is attempting to censor all news of last week's massacre
of 20 or more farmers in Dongzhou, in southern China.

This attempt to suppress news of this massacre may (or may not)
be successful in the short run. But, in the long run, these
kinds of attempts to suppress the news are doomed to failure.
This story is of great significance to activists today who
want to build a powerful and militant mass movement for a world
that is not ruled by imperialism and the bourgeoisie.
