05-06-2008 20:29You'll find below a letter from jail as well as an international call for
action and solidarity with 4 people locked up in french jails since a few
months. They are accused of planning terrorist activity (sometimes just because

sabotage actions. They, amongst others, are pointed out as symbolic figures of
the « the resurging threat of anarcho-terrorists preparing for armed
struggle ». The french State is trying to build up this myth as a reaction to
ongoing revolts (migrants', workers', students', struggles against jails...).

WHERE ARE THE ANGRY DEMONSTRATIONS?
05-06-2008 19:05Just something to keep in mind in the weeks ahead when the Propaganda effort created by this meeting, the AIPAC conference, and Olmert's visit to DC, really gets underway.
Apparently for Israel, any US intelligence report telling the truth is a "blow" when it comes to Iran.
However, the timing couldn't be more interesting, what with Olmert in Washington, pleading for a military strike, and McConnell in Jerusalem getting a "cooked consensus" from Israeli intelligence folks who are foaming at the mouth with their eagerness to get the US to strike Iran militarily.
