"Support Our Troops," Or Support The Resistance?
19 Apr 2004
Modified: 09:43:29 AM
This article was written by Puerto Rican activist and member of New England Committee to Defend Palestine Marta Rodriguez.

Ms. Rodriguez argues that the present approach of the antiwar movement makes what happens to the occupying troops take precedence over the war crimes they commit against occupied people, as well as the right of those people to rid themselves of those who violate their territories, lives, and sovereignty.

18 Apr 2004
On June 18, 1999 the G8 was accompanied by militant action in every country that was represented at the meetings.

May 1 - End the Occupation in Iraq, Palestine & Haiti
18 Apr 2004
May 1 was the date that George Bush dressed up like a soldier, flew onto the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln, and claimed credit for the conquering of Iraq. Since then the war in Iraq has only intensified. More U.S. soldiers have been killed or wounded since May 1 than during the invasion phase of the war. Nearly 10,000 soldiers have been evacuated from Iraq for wounds and other injuries. Tens of thousands of Iraqis have been killed. The May 1 anniversary will be marked by nationally coordinated activities - demostrations, rallies, teach-ins, and forums exposing the lies of the Bush administration in regards to Iraq, Palestine & Haiti.

How shame based do we have to be?
