Imperialism and Resistance in Latin America

16-11-2003 09:39

We are witnessing a period of massive struggles, violent repression, blatant intervention and monstrous distortions in the mass media, coverting victims into executioners, and executioners into victims. But the movements are advancing, painfully, but surely, burying their comrades, tending their wounded, nurturing their survivors and increasing their solidarity. Ultimately, with organization, consciousness and audicity we will win, not only because the cause of liberty and equality is just, but because we dare to struggle.

The Recruiters of 9/11

16-11-2003 08:59

In this latest excerpt from Chaim Kupferberg's landmark article, Kupferberg looks at the murky background surrounding the 9/11 recruiters, and sets out the following bold hypothesis: if one were to posit the presence of a covert intelligence service behind the actions of the 9/11 hijackers, the most logical place to look would be in the vicinity of al-Qaida's key recruiting agents. Does Kupferberg make his case? You be the judge.

Cannon Fodder

16-11-2003 03:13

The Bush administration has cut veteran's benefits and forced wounded American soldiers to pay for hospital meals. They have kept returning sick and wounded soldiers in miserable conditions on US military bases and made them wait months for doctor's appointments. Now, they want to close schools and commissaries on military bases and privatize the remaining commissaries. Oh well, that means more taxpayer money for Halliburton, Bechtel and all the other corporations profiting immensely from the Iraq war.
