19-07-2007 20:59Britain’s expulsion of four Russian diplomats on July 16 has led to a further deterioration in already strained relations between the two countries.
19-07-2007 15:26The historic AU Summit in Accra failed to take the bols steps that were needed to initiate the process of Afrika gaining true economic liberation and independence - this is what the grand arhitect of Afrikan Unity Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah advocated ironically in a similiar conference in Accra in 1965. Had the leaders then heeded Osagyefo's advice Afrika would now be a GLOBAL SUPER POWER able to determine its own affairs without White interference.
19-07-2007 10:57The accelerated pace of India’s liberal economics and pragmatic ties with the United States and Israel risks polarizing Indian domestic politics and invoking a deep-seated communist as well as Islamist anti – Americanism with a realistic potential for a foreign policy strategic shift leading unintentionally and indirectly to creating an internal political environment that could be receptive for the first time to the agitation of the extreme violent Islamists.
19-07-2007 01:23More than a year has passed since we finished the second issue of our journal Dissident, which introduced insurrectional anarchism in Sweden. We chose to introduce the insurrectional perspective because we think it brings us valuable insights and experiences. These include the critique of organisational fetishism and activism, the shift of perspective from the mass to the active minority, and the importance of projectuality. Some critics, mostly syndicalists, unfortunately interpreted the insurrectional perspective in absolute terms. This text aims to answer those concerns and move the discussion forward.
18-07-2007 15:39We can all remember in past years hearing of a large blizzard or a large storm that produced several tornadoes, or an area stricken by drought. Every year there was always one or two or three of these major weather occurrences. We were shocked but not unduly alarmed at the news.
18-07-2007 08:50A deeper look must be taken at the evolving domestic conditions within the “American Homeland” and at the wave of events that are unfolding in the Palestinian Territories, Israel, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Turkey, the Persian Gulf, the former Soviet Union, and Iran.
There have been reports and chatter about war between Israel and Syria and a “Summer War” that could breakout in the Levant with the initiation of Israeli strikes in the Palestinian Territories and Lebanon. The summer-months of 2007 may see international tensions rise, but witness no regional war that could potentially spread in the Middle East and beyond.
17-07-2007 14:19The recent AU summit in Accra was an immesne failure becuase westernised Afrikan leaders succumbed to the whims of thier colonial masters by not settting a definite timetable to form a federation of Afrikan states that is the only solution to Afrika's problems and to bring much needed respect and dignity to ALL people with Afrikan ancestry.

16-07-2007 08:41In the wake of the Dorgan and Conrad amendment designed “to double the reward for information leading to the capture or death of Osama bin Laden, the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks,” as KXMB in North Dakota puts it, a “new” Osama video has surfaced, prompting the corporate media to circle like a brood of hungry vultures.
It remains to be seen if “al-Qaeda” or its purported “home-grown imitators” will strike this summer. No doubt, as usual, it will depend on political expediency, especially now that even neocon-friendly Republican Congress critters are weary of the neocon “effort” in Iraq.
15-07-2007 21:46Breathing might be the one form of carbon dioxide production humans carry out that is unavoidable, but that doesn't mean we all have to create the same emissions every time we do it.
15-07-2007 13:03Last month, as the corporate media mulched over renewed Pentagon claims Iran is providing deadly IEDs to Iraqi “insurgents,” German television reported the Maoist Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or Partiya Karkaren Kurdistan (PKK), has “killed over 200 Iranians,” a handful by way of IED, according to a PKK terrorist quoted by German ARD television (original in German).
PJAK enjoys full neocon support, as should be expected, never mind PKK’s supposed lunatic Maoist persuasion.
Y‘know it’s amazing really, considering that for centuries Europeans have been invading other countries, enslaving their peoples, ripping off their resources and in the process impoverishing much of the planet. And what is more, moving in and taking up residence without so much as a ‘by your leave’ let alone being put through an intensive examination upon their arrival.
13-07-2007 13:40If you've got experience with the police, owners of squatted buildings and/or the court system, you believe in squatting and the history and philosophy behind it; and/or you have experience of protest camps and you're interested in spreading the word - read on...
13-07-2007 10:42The latest book on Thabo Mbeki ' Fit to Govern: the Native Intelligence of Thabo Mbeki' by Ronald Suresh Roberts is denialist propaganda that should be countered by all progressive forces with the same amount of zeal and vigour as that expressed by its chief proponents.
13-07-2007 10:21The following short article is from the Red Pepper website (www.redpepper.org.uk), and was linked from the end of the article '5 Fingers Beat 16000 G8 Cops: Are we winning again?' by Ben Trott
13-07-2007 09:08Unfortunately for the rest of humanity the U.S.A. conducts the global orchestra to the sound of American tunes. For the last six years the number one hit was a patriotic trumpet and drum duet that muted the rest of the more subtle orchestral sounds. Now those silenced instruments are elbowing their way back to audition level.
12-07-2007 16:55The detention of at least seven medics in connection with last week’s failed terror attacks in Britain has added to the public’s sense of shock. All the more so since the alleged perpetrators of the attacks were both initially identified as doctors working at Glasgow’s Royal Alexandra Hospital.
