Michel Chossudovsky, author of the international bestseller America's War on Terrorism, personally graced the jam-packed local launch of his latest book held at the Asian Center at the University of the Philippines in Diliman, Quezon City last June 24. During the launch, he gave a lecture about the imminent danger of a U.S.-made nuclear catastrophe amid the Bush administration's preparations for war with Iran.

18-07-2006 19:06Just as Tony Blair has been shown this past week to have suffered another dramatic reduction of his image, 'thanks' to his visible alliance of stuttering supplication to G W Bush, so is the domestic UK legislature caught in a morass of unimaginative 'law'-making, as the CrossRail Bill 'scrutiny' committee has been showing by its failure to allow bona fide objectors put the evidence before it. Next week's filing in the High Court of the formal challenge against the Secretary of State is set to create a record in the history of battles to make the UK Parliament representative of basic standards of democracy that it is often claimed to typify. The constitutional contribution of the Khoodeelaar! campaign towards democratising the UK parliament will be a fitting one, given that the East End of London has been chosen by the Select Committee to be denied its say in the so-called peoples’ parliament.
18-07-2006 12:43The emergency conference called by ‘Stop the War’ on the crisis in Palestine drew a packed house. After a promising start we were left with the same options, a candle lit vigil and a state sanctioned march. With Gaza being bombed day and night surely it is time to step out of our comfort zone and reflect the courage of Palestinians.

17-07-2006 12:37Once again senseless small-scale provocative guerrilla action by the militias of Hamas and Hezbollah against Israel has triggered an enormously disproportionate response. In Gaza, Israel has deployed brutal military strikes with considerable civilian casualties that can only work against a viable long-term settlement.

Thanks to a heads up from Jessica McBride’s blog, we decided to go out this morning to see a talk by Kevin Barrett – the UW Madison instructor who thinks that the 9/11 terrorist attacks were a U.S. government conspiracy. On the program with him was a certain Prof. James Fetzer, until recently a faculty member at the University of Minnesota, Duluth, and likewise a hard core conspiracy buff.
14-07-2006 11:06Thirty-six years ago the Governor of the State of Yucatan in Mexico boasted to me his ruling Partido Revolucionario Institucional (PRI) would win the provincial election with a majority of 94.7 per cent.
It turned out he was dead on target with the percentage. The only problem was he made this ‘prediction’ early in the morning, before the polling stations had opened.
14-07-2006 08:32The latest KSL pamphlet gives you a chance to learn about Hungarian anarchists in the Budapest Commune of 1919, and the stories of figures like Ervin Szabo (anarchist librarian and anti-war conspirator), Otto Korvin (agitator) and Ilona Duczynska (the assassin who didn't).
13-07-2006 23:30This is the transcript of a public address by Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed, author of The London Bombings: An Independent Inquiry (Duckworth, 2006) at the first parliamentary meeting calling for an independent public inquiry into the 7/7 terrorist attacks. The meeting was held in the House of Lords, 12th July 2006, chaired by Lord Rea. The event was sponsored by CAMPACC (www.campacc.org.uk) and supported by London Metropolitan University's Human Rights and Social Justice Research Institute, Stop Political Terror, and several other campaign groups. Panelists included 7/7 survivor Rachel North, antiwar activist and author Milan Rai, international lawyer Professor Bill Bowring, among others. Also participating were 7/7 survivors Holly Finch and John Tulloch. In this address, Nafeez Ahmed, who teaches international relations at Sussex University, explores the reasons why an independent public inquiry is needed, and also explains why the government doesn't want one.
