Voting Rights for Non-US citizens in 2004 US Presidential Elections

26-10-2004 21:24

In recent years, particularly since the tragic events of September the 11th 2001, the United States have taken it upon themselves to follow a foreign policy without the sanction of the global community. The actions taken, especially in Iraq, are likely to have repercussions that affect any person on the planet. It is only right, therefore, that anyone ought to be allowed to vote for the person ultimately responsible for the policy; the President of the United States of America. Now you can express your views in a website namely Hope you may find this interesting!!

Court Challenge:Demands Information About the Seizure of Indymedia Servers

26-10-2004 18:54

"Silencing Indymedia with a secret order is no different than censoring any other news website, whether it's USA Today or your local paper," said Kevin Bankston, EFF attorney and Equal Justice Works/Bruce J. Ennis Fellow. "If the government is allowed to ignore the Constitution in this case, then every news publisher should be wondering, 'Will I be silenced next?'"

Women Activists Excluded from the ESF

26-10-2004 12:56

The letter published in today’s Guardian shows how political parties involved in organising the ESF excluded women activists and women's groups which did not support them. These same parties similarly organise the Stop The War Coalition(and Respect), and used the STWC as cover for their ESF activities.

The Socialist Workers Party (An erstwhile Lenninist Sect), the Communist Party of Britain (ertswhile Stalinists, now a Social Democratic Sect controlling the Morning Star), and Socialist Action (erstwhile Leninist now Commercial/political Manegerial Sect) which is party of the Labour Party, its members in the GLC work for Ken Livingston.

These parties had some support from a few CND and Trade Unions bureaucrats who were either in the parties, or were promised promotion of their own organisations interests, and some few willing fools - sought to exclude grass roots, anarchist, and libertarian organisations which were considered opposed to party interests.

It is good to briefly refect on the organisation process. The Parites achied what they wanted by weight of numbers, bullying and well rehearsed disruptive tactics to get rid of other ESF orgainsers. Often though, the opposition on the organising committee were easily outmanouvred, or were easily duped, and lulled into traps, or seduced at various stages. Opposition could have been firmer and more united, and emphatic. There are many now who opposed the SWP and co. who once showed them at least tacit support, and too often gave them authority by engaging in their agenda.

When these groups sought to protest peacefully for democracy, and against exclusion, during the ESF, they were smeared as thuggish racist. Thankfully, the lies were self-evident to the rest of the left, and theconsequent backlash against Socilaist Action and the Socilaist Workers Party is well deserved.

On a positive note, the following Guardian Newspaper letter adds something substantial to the debate - which has been started in IM - of how the ESF can be turned round after London 2004, a low-point in its short history, and developed as catalyst for revolutionary change.
