FRIDAY: Solidarity Actions with Oaxaca
21 Dec 2006

The people of Oaxaca, Mexico have given the rest of the world an example of how to organize and resist. For months their struggle has taken the form of popular assemblies and self defense against the brutal Mexican government and its paramilitaries. Though attention was drawn to the situation because of the death of a US journalist, this struggle has existed for over 500 years. Indigenous people in Oaxaca, Chiapas, and all over the world are rejecting the dysfunctional systems of capitalism, imperialism, governance and patriarchy. The widely respected Zapatistas have called upon us, the people of the world, to show our solidarity with this resistance. Specifically, they have declared FRIDAY, DECEMBER 22 an international day of action for OAXACA.

Open Letter to Mr. "God Hates Fags"
20 Dec 2006
Modified: 11:37:10 PM
This letter is to Fred Phelps and his family at the Westboro Baptist Church. They are the “ministry” that callously demonstrates at people’s funerals and jeer at mourning loved ones. I cannot imagine much, in a person’s life, that could antagonize and provoke aggression more than this.

Chavez getes more radical
20 Dec 2006
“For this new era we need a political instrument at the service of the Revolution and socialism”

In an event called on Friday 15, at the Teresa Carreño Theatre in Caracas, to celebrate the election victory and congratulate those who had made it possible, Chavez made a very important speech about the new phase the Bolivarian Revolution has reached. The whole speech was one blow after another against the right wing of the Bolivarian movement, which has spent the last two weeks since the elections calling for conciliation with the opposition, and was enthusiastically received by the thousands of revolutionary activists present at the Theatre and the hundreds of thousands who watch the speech on national TV.

He started by celebrating the election victory and stressing that it was a victory of the Venezuelan people "the first that should be congratulated and the owner of the victory", explaining that his role was one of being "always a tool of the will of the people".
