German Academy of Arts Demands Freedom for Mumia Abu-Jamal
31 Mar 2009
The most prominent speaker was Danielle Mitterrand, widow of the former French president and a fighter against injustice since anti-apartheid struggle days. Recalling that a street in Paris is named for Mumia, an honored citizen of Paris, she denounced the death penalty in general and said, to loud applause: “Silencing Mumia would mean silencing 3000 people condemned to death in a land where the number of imprisoned people is breaking all records…The Americans do not deserve such barbarism!”

The Communist Party of the Philippines and the Khmer Rouge
31 Mar 2009
Mao-Pol-Pot-Sison.JPGFor decades the Khmer Rouge regime has been exposed for its atrocities and genocides against its own people. Yet the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) nor its political arm, the National Democratic Front (NDF) nor any of its influenced and led organizations have issued any statement of condemnation. In fact in some of the statements issued by the CPP-NDF or interviews issued by its leaders, they seem to defend the Khmer Rouge.

The Obama Government: Take from Workers and Give to the Rich
30 Mar 2009
These past several weeks have witnessed a stunning attack on working people, with the Obama administration leading the charge.

It started with Larry Summers, Obama’s chief economic adviser, responding to the A.I.G. bonuses by pontificating about the sanctity of contracts: “We are a country of law. There are contracts. The government cannot just abrogate contracts.” Like a mad dog pursuing its prey, he pounced on the conclusion that absolutely nothing could be done about the bonuses. Unfortunately, Summers voiced no similar outcry when the Obama administration, only weeks earlier, insisted that the U.A.W. contracts be renegotiated as a condition for the auto industry receiving a bailout, suggesting that a different set of rules applies to the rich than to the rest of us who constitute the majority and work for a living.

White Unity? It's Bonehead Against Bonehead in the "White Pride" Scene
30 Mar 2009
On April 11, 2009, the white supremacist group "East Coast White Unity" (ECWU) plans to host a neo-nazi gathering in Boston, MA named "Patriot Action 2009". The co-sponsor of this event is Volksfront International, a racist skinhead organization founded in 1994, which has a presence in several US states as well as chapters in Canada, Australia and Europe. Although the Boston event is intended as a display of unity between fascist groups, anti-fascists have discovered plotting and betrayal behind the scenes of the white power movement, the extent of which many event organizers and scheduled attendees might not be aware.
