05-02-2007 21:07Ken Livingstone is no longer hiding his craze for power. the more he gets it, the more abusive he is to the people. Amazing to note that Tony Blair who is behind the surge to give Livingstone even more power. was the one who had said that Livingstone would be a disaster for London !
Attached is a "guerilla" recording from the London Sound Posse of a debate between Ken Livingstone, Mayor of London vs Daniel Pipes, the neocon held on 20 January 2007. The MP3's include contributions from Salma Yaqoob, Douglas Murray and the audience. Following it is an extract from a Guardian article, Muslims are now getting the same treatment Jews had a century ago, which is based on the presentation by Maleiha Malik at the conference.
Following is an article by Sander Hicks from AlterNet which has the following note from the AlterNet editor as an introduction.
The role of the alternative press is to offer perspectives that the commercial media won't touch. Having run a number of articles critical of the "9/11 Truth Movement" by Matt Taibbi, Joshua Holland, Matthew Rothschild and others, we asked Sander Hicks, a prominent voice within the movement, to share his perspective. For more of Sanders' views, see his book "The Big Wedding: 9/11, The Whistle-Blowers, and the Cover-Up."
The article on AlterNet, predictably, has a lot of comments…
04-02-2007 18:39It is a “political pilgrimage” that sends an incisive, unambiguous message: Bush’s neocons will work with the Democrats, not only on “U.S. energy self-sufficiency, global warming, economic competitiveness and immigration,” but also on the mass murder “surge” in Iraq and, soon enough, Iran.
04-02-2007 17:42The real war today is for survival; whether the species earns the right to survive or annihilates itself remains to be seen but the money is on annihilation, where it belongs! It is counter-productive to focus on the external manifestations of man’s evolutionary struggle against his dual nature – the WAR today is the final war for the species, it is the last battle of LIFE against DEATH.
04-02-2007 11:22In his latest piece for the New Statesman, John Pilger describes American plans to attack Iran, possibly with nuclear weapons. Although the majority of Americans voted last November to end the war in Iraq, the Bush cabal remains undeterred by inspid protests from Democrats and is proceeding with another, even more dangerous adventure.

Our friends from abroad continuously ask us to explain our views about the current situation in Venezuela. This reply is based on two recent texts by the editing team of El Libertario, already published in their entirety in the internet (in Spanish), and from which we extract our main points.
04-02-2007 02:47It is precisely “pro-Israel,” “New York money people,” “influential in the Democratic Party” who are calling the shots, demanding Democrats “toe the line.”
“Calling Iran a danger to the U.S. and one of Israel’s greatest threats, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton said Thursday that ‘no option can be taken off the table’ when dealing with that nation,”
04-02-2007 02:38The Manchester Pride organisers claim that 250,000 people watch the Saturday parade and similar figures have regularly appeared in the media over the years.
It seems that no one has ever thought about that figure. If you look at the facts, a crowd of that size is a physical impossibility on such a short route and on such relatively narrow city streets.
03-02-2007 19:33A damaging row between the Labour government, the Catholic and Anglican churches and other religious groups over homosexual equality legislation has produced what Prime Minister Tony Blair described as a “sensible” compromise.
03-02-2007 11:09The Peace Movement will be holding the third annual Peace Conference in the Portland Building at Nottingham University from 11-6 on Sunday, February 18. Speakers will include James Howard (Powerswitch), Sue Blount (Green Party) and Craig Murray (former British Ambassador to Uzbekistan).
03-02-2007 00:37In short, Americans are easily frightened by crass manifestations of the tawdry and shallow consumer society they passively accept, even celebrate, usually with dangerous levels of credit card debt. Fear and mistrust are now endemic, thanks to nearly six years of incessant propaganda concerning universal terrorists, Muslim evil-doers, liquid bombs, homegrown fanatics, even dire warnings of pregnant suicide bombers lurking on the local bus or train.
02-02-2007 23:59A political bombshell from Zbigniew Brzezinski
Ex-national security adviser warns that Bush is seeking a pretext to attack Iran
Testifying before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Thursday, Zbigniew Brzezinski, the national security adviser in the Carter administration, delivered a scathing critique of the war in Iraq and warned that the Bush administration’s policy was leading inevitably to a war with Iran, with incalculable consequences for US imperialism in the Middle East and internationally.
02-02-2007 22:31In flagrant contempt of best archaeological practice, a systematic campaign of tree felling, earth clearance and monument removal has begun at the Hill of Tara. This is before the Public Private Partnership (PPP) contract for the M3 Motorway, to run through the Tara / Skryne Valley, has even been signed. Daily protests are taking place, every 7am in the morning at the Hill of Tara car park.
02-02-2007 20:56To outside observers who get their facts from the bourgeois media it would seem that Chavez is going "too fast". But the ordinary working people of Venezuela are demanding immediate action. They live in such conditions that they can wait no longer.
