All Out For Valley Forge!
05 Sep 2004
With the Bush administration firmly entrenched in power, true fascists – an assortment of neo-Nazi and other far-right groups – are no longer afraid to organize publicly, far from their home base of support. The National Socialist Movement (NSM) is planning a large public demonstration on September 25th in Valley Forge, PA. The NSM, who refer to themselves as “America’s Nazi Party,” feel no need to hide in their homes in Minnesota, and have instead chosen a location on the East Coast less than half an hour from the very multi-racial and multi-cultural City of Philadelphia. We in Anti-Racist Action are planning a counter-demonstration to oppose these fascists, and are inviting all those who believe in freedom and equality to join us in sending the NSM a strong message that fascist scum are not welcome in Pennsylvania!

The Original Handbook Book of Terror

The clergy, by getting themselves established by law and engrafted into the machine of government, have been a very formidable engine against the civil and religious rights of man.

The Vietnam War and Anti-War Veterans
04 Sep 2004
The lessons of this story have EVERYTHING to do with the war on Iraq and other current realities. American opposition to the war against Vietnam grew slowly but steadily during the 1960s, as US military involvement intensified and American casualties mounted. Antiwar activists saw that the US could only achieve victory in Vietnam through massive destruction, and the war came to be viewed as racist and genocidal. The war became the number one issue in the minds of Americans, and thousands of groups sprang up nationwide to organize opposition. One such group was the Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW). Never in living memory had US veterans organized against the very war in which they had fought. At first, its numbers were small. In 1967 a mere six veterans marched in a New York City protest, but by spring 1970, the VVAW had 600 members... soon there would be thousands.
