old camps and squats as well as the new camps people set up after they are first evicted.
The tactic is always the same, massive police operations involving up to hundreds of riot police, who surround the camps from every side and arrest everybody.
After that, the diggers move in and destroy everything, the shelters with the people's few possessions.

October Surprise: Peace Prize to a War Criminal

14-10-2009 19:42

The Nobel Committee's tradition is long and inglorious, but for the well-informed no surprise. Past nominees included Adolph Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Benito Mussolini, Tony Blair, Rush Limbaugh and George W. Bush. Mahatma Gandhi got four nominations but never won.

American war making continues, sanctified and legitimized under Obama's peacemaker mantle. In fact, his speeches are disingenuous and lie-filled. He disdains peace. The renamed "Global War on Terror" is now the "Overseas Contingency Operation." His ambition is global dominance. His method - imperial wars with a first-strike nuclear option.

Chavez’s Lines: ¡¡Viva El Che!!

14-10-2009 13:28

"What has Obama done to deserve this award? The jury praised as crucial feature his wish for a world without nuclear weapons, forgetting his efforts to perpetuate his battalions in Iraq and Afghanistan, and his decision to install new military bases in Colombia. For the first time, we are witnessing an award with the nominee having done nothing to deserve it: rewarding someone for a wish that is very far from becoming reality.

But that is the world. Imagine someone giving a pitcher the Cy Young Award at the beginning of the season, only because he said he will win 50 games, will not lose any, will strike out 500 batters and his ERA will not exceed 0.5. Rosines[3] said: “No Way!” Meanwhile, daily engaged as were are, in the solution of a thousand problems, it is an immense joy that fills the soul to see how we move with more libertarian determination towards the consolidation of a real alternative for our peoples, although from Washington they tell us that we should be a more "constructive" country for the region. The things people say! In reality what “worries” them is the way we are moving towards a destination that puts the people of America at the epicenter of change and not in their failed "little free trade agreements” that crashed against the united valor of the people determined to be free and sovereign.

¡Viva el Che! ¡Hasta la victoria siempre! ¡Venceremos!"
