23-10-2006 16:35It’s interesting to see what issues can infiltrate and corrupt the Left. Usually the offenses are blatant— supporting the ‘war on terror’, electing ‘progressive Democrats’, calling for military intervention into a troubled region (Yugoslavia— and now Sudan). Sometimes though, more subtle topics can confuse and disorientate the Left, the most recent example being the sudden reemergence of the WWI Armenian genocide as a hot-button issue.

22-10-2006 22:37The media and "establishment" are well into their plans to allow Phoney Bliar the War Criminal to step down from power gracefully, instead of being forced out in disgrace, and held to account for his actions. It's up to us to ensure that this is not allowed to happen.
Direct Action at public events. Blanketing the streets with reminders about Bliar's many crimes and deceptions. Massive rallies denouncing his reign.
These must be undertaken in earnest, so that this can never happen again, or worse, be perpetuated through his successor.

Support the monks in maintaining their peaceful existence in the face of
state sponsored violence.

In the UK also an 'Independent' Police Complaints Commission had been installed a few years ago (only after persistent family campaigning, just in case you were harboring any doubts). But still the 'friendly unarmed bobbies' kill far more people than police forces of other european countries, while factual immunity of officers prevails.
