27-02-2004 21:09Demagoguery is easy. It only takes reciting a few slogans that nobody can object to: “No to war”. “No to blood for oil”. “No to the occupation”. Like every right-thinking person, I subscribe 100% to those slogans, but I also feel that life is more complicated than that. As a result, in recent times I have found myself in conflict with many of my close friends over the war against the regime of Saddam Hussein (I refuse to say “the war against Iraq”, not yet).

26-02-2004 19:57Many of you believe that this resolution is crucial in the Palestinian conflict, however you have voted on it without consulting with the Friends of Palestine. It may have been that you were busy in the preparation for Geneva Accords while voting for this resolution. It may be that now you will doubt your vote.

24-02-2004 01:25Dear all,
i write from India, where, as some of you might know, i spent the last few months (from October last year) working in the WSF office in the organisation of the WSF 2004.
It has been an incredible experience! I thought i would be back in London soon to take active part in the organisation of the next ESF, but my plans have changed. My only chance to be with you is therefore virtual. The first few reflections are attached below. They will be in the Newsletter of The Friends of Le Monde Diplomatique. They are rather long notes (around 4 pages), but the most interesting paragraphs (for this list) are the last ones.
Hope this considerations could be of interest, I look forward to read your comments
See you soon
