28-12-2009 17:10This communique was given out by a portion of the Black Bloc during the march to the Bella Centre on Saturday at the protests against the U.N. COP-15: There seems to be a common logic between the government delegates, the NGOs who control the march, and even the radical ecological activists: we are all saving humanity together. Who would not want to fight for this? And even if you did not, do you even have a choice?

23-12-2009 15:10"The 1999 Constitution is one of the most advanced in the world in the area of human rights. It guarantees the rights to housing, education, healthcare, food, indigenous lands, languages, women's rights, worker's rights, living wages and a whole host of other rights that few other countries recognize on a national level. My favorite right in the Venezuelan Constitution is the right to a dignified life. That pretty much sums up all the others."
The bombing and invasion of Afghanistan is described as a "campaign" against Islamic terrorists, rather than a war.
To this date, however, there is no proof that Al Qaeda was behind the 9/11 attacks.
Neither is there evidence that Afghanistan as a Nation State was behind or any way complicit in the 9/11 attacks.
20-12-2009 03:35"Socialism, the other spectre Karl Marx spoke about, which walks here too, rather it is like a counter-spectre. Socialism, this is the direction, this is the path to save the planet, I don’t have the least doubt. Capitalism is the road to hell, to the destruction of the world. We say this from Venezuela, which because of socialism faces threats from the U.S. Empire.
From the countries that comprise ALBA, the Bolivarian Alliance, we call, and I want to, with respect, but from my soul, call in the name of many on this planet, we say to governments and peoples of the Earth, to paraphrase Simón Bolívar, the Liberator: If the destructive nature of capitalism opposes us, let’s fight against it and make it obey us, let’s not wait idly by for the death of humanity."

16-12-2009 12:58Nowhere it is more obvious than in Iraq that the existence of an election law, elections themselves and the constitution they are based on are not indicators of democracy or legitimacy, because these mechanisms are merely symbols of the antithesis of the mechanisms of democracy as practiced back home by the U.S. occupying power.

15-12-2009 19:49"The time is at hand for the progressive movement to fight the “Obama sham.” It is clearer everyday from just about every move this administration makes that Obama is on the wrong side of history. He stands with Zionism against the legitimate and just rights of the Palestinian people. U.S. preparations for war with Iran are obvious to any but the most gullible. Similarly, the U.S. war machine is preparing to recapture it’s “backyard.” in America. Even the environment gets no respite as mountains and their ecosystems, which grew over millions of years, are still being blown away for the pittance of dirty coal desired by corporate mining giants. The rich nations, lead by the U.S.. will not even press for meaningful emissions reductions in Copenhagen.
Progressive forces need to wake up before it is too late. Obama was chosen because he could accomplish (for the ruling class) what we would never have allowed the Bush Fascists to succeed at. Namely to keep capitalism alive as the world around us revolts. Despite his obvious charisma, intelligence, and amazing personal power and inspirational gifts, Obama currently stands against the people of the world and with the reactionary "hangers on" of the “old order.” We must clear our political eyes now and get on to building the “better world” we know is possible."
