Youth Issue in Ukraine

12-05-2011 11:40

An interesting article on the current state of affairs of young people and the leftist movement in Ukraine. Interesting to read the history of current Russian Ukrainian oligarchs to see how they started out, but you need to delve deep, much further than "their own" "official" biographies which don't often mention how they "started out" as racketeers, smugglers from an early age and grew from out of the Soviet black market underground, and became ologarchs after Yeltsin took power.

Birmingham cops and 'community types' behind racist, illegal 'Project Champion'

10-05-2011 22:38

Here are the names of those responsible for implementing one of the most racist uses of public money in British history. The multi-million pound 'project champion' in which CCTV cameras were erected in Muslim areas where there was zero evidence that anybody in the area was a terrorist. The residents were being targeted simply for their colour and for their Muslim faith.
Paul Lewis wrote about 6 articles for the Guardian.

Interview with David Edwards from Media Lens

10-05-2011 18:18

Media Lens is a media analysis organisation set up by David Edwards and David Cromwell in 2001 to highlight the shortcomings of mainstream media reporting in Britain. Sending out regular email alerts to its subscribers, it questions the coverage of key topics by ‘impartial’ sources like the BBC, as well as traditionally liberal publications like the Independent. Ultimately, it hopes to encourage members of the public to challenge journalists and editors over the way they report. After publishing a couple of Media Lens alerts in Now Then in the past few months, we spoke to David Edwards about the venture and how it got off the ground on the month of its 10th anniversary.

New Bin Laden tapes appear fake like earlier ones

10-05-2011 16:04

Time's special issue on the death of Osama bin Laden, 20 May 2011
This article highlights a shameless Washington effort to compound one lie with others. Ad nauseam accounts continue, contributing to war on terror fear mongering that's changed America dramatically post-9/11 disturbingly. It suggests worse yet to come, including perhaps more war besides others now raging, while popular needs go begging.

Despite poll data showing opposition, they continue because people focus more on bread and circuses than activism, the only way to achieve constructive change. It's high time opinions became anger enough to significantly make a difference. It better because the alternative is too dire to imagine.

False flags: An American tradition

10-05-2011 08:56

Wikipedia defines false or black flags as "covert operations designed to deceive the public in such a way that the operations appear as though they are being carried out by other entities."

They're "big lies," defined by Merriam-Webster as "deliberate gross distortion(s) of the truth used especially as a propaganda tactic."

America's decade from September 11, 2001 to May 1, 2011 was punctuated by the (big) lie of our time and (big) lie of the moment.

Put another way, the official stories are falsified, myths, widely believed fantasies contrary to reality.

Dancing on the grave of 9/11. Osama and “the Big Lie”

07-05-2011 16:46

The Obama administration and the corporate media are concocting an ever-more elaborate and spectacular theater around the “heroic” murder of the CIA intelligence myth/CIA asset Osama bin Laden. Not content to simply to exploit the 9/11 atrocity for political gain, the administration is heaping new layers of lie and cover-up to the original crime.

The phony anti-war movement

07-05-2011 16:07

The U.S. anti-war movement was always a lot less than it appeared to be. At its height, activists claimed that the sheer weight of visible public opinion would shake power relationships to the very foundation. But it turned out that many of the anti-war legions were actually comprised of partisan Democrats who only opposed Republican wars. “For the phony anti-warrior, imperialism with a Democratic face, is just fine.”

Ode to IMC UK: keep it going....

IMC UK: media molotov
It was with great consternation that I followed the Indymedia UK saga on the Newswire – the split camps of BeTheMedia and Mayday, and the possible suspension of the site. While I am not a part of any IMC Kollective, and have not followed the in-depth discussions and meetings that have been had about IMC UK’s future, I would like to say a little on the importance of the site, both as a reader and contributor to IMC UK.

Lies, damn lies, and Bin Laden's death

03-05-2011 18:18

Washington Post, 2 May 2011
Calling Osama Bin Laden "the mastermind of the most devastating attack on American soil in modern times and the most hunted man in the world," President Obama announced his death Sunday night, declaring "justice has been done."

Highlighting 9/11, he painstakingly discussed everything but the truth. America's media repeated it. Celebratory crowds in front of the White House, in Times Square, and at "ground zero" cheered it past midnight, mindlessly believing a lie.

Clear evidence showed bin Laden died years ago, likely in December 2001. However, reporting it was concealed to pursue America's "war on terror."

As a result, "Enemy Number One" was used to stoke fear as pretext for imperial wars on Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Libya, perhaps others now planned, and numerous proxy ones in Somalia, Yemen, Bahrain, Palestine, Central Africa, Colombia, and elsewhere.
