Bolivia: state-of-emergency declared, US blamed (+ background to land politics)

13-09-2008 09:11

Bolivian political clashes spark both a diplomatic crisis with the US and a wider regional crisis with the US. (Includes a background to the politics of land and ethnic divide within Bolivia)
Sure enough as the crisis escalates in Latin America, the USA are stepping up their attack on the main thron in their side in the region - Chavez - with the hugely suscipious allegations of Chavez's financial link to drug traffickers.

Disaster in Afghanistan

12-09-2008 22:00

It is difficult to find out what is really going on in Afghanistan. The focus of the mass media is almost entirely on the military activities of the Canadian and NATO forces. There is absolutely no coverage of political developments. The news on the economy is limited to the state of the poppy industry. This is no accident. The North American media, including the CBC, has strongly supported the U.S./NATO strategy and the administration of President Hamid Karzai. Contrary to the mainstream message, things are not going well.

What a Prosser!

On Saturday 13th September, the Black Country Museum will host the annual Women Chainmaker's Festival. Anthony Wedgewood Benn, formerly 2nd Viscount Stansgate (Tony Benn to you and me), is a regular fixture at the event, although this time Baroness Margaret Prosser is coming to speak. Below is the text of a leaflet that will be circulated by the West Midlands Branch of the Industrial Workers of the World questioning the role of bosses in our union movement and celebrating the actions of our fellow workers nearly a century ago.

The Baroness and the Chainmakers

The Women Chainmaker's Festival is a celebration of the inspirational struggle of the Cradley Heath Women Chainmakers who nearly a century ago agitated and went on strike to gain better pay and working conditions.

The keynote speaker for this year’s festival is Baroness Margaret Prosser, the former deputy general secretary of the T&G Union, Labour Party treasurer, and low pay commissioner.
