from a house that was fraudulently appropriated to house the extremist
terrorist settlers that have taken over in Hebron. The IDF have often stood
by as these settlers have attacked Palestinians and their homes, with Israel
imposing curfews that have turned old Hebron into a ghost town with its once
vibrant market closed down.

06-12-2008 13:35On November 27, three leftist union leaders in the Venezuelan state of Aragua – Richard Gallardo, Luis Hernández and Carlos Requena – were gunned down by an assassin. The murder came hours after the unionists had led a workers occupation of a Colombian-owned milk plant which had been brutally broken up by state police. All three were leaders of the UNT (National Workers Union) and of the USI (Socialist Left Unity), a party which has opposed attempts by the government of Hugo Chávez to impose state control of labor, and has fought the rightist opposition backed by imperialism. They may have been murdered by assassins hired by the Colombian company, by elements connected to the police of outgoing state governor, a former Chávez ally, or by supporters of a current official of the governing United Socialist Party. In any case, despite Chávez’ socialist rhetoric, the reality of the bourgeois Bolivarian “revolution” in Venezuela today is that leftist unionists are murdered while the forces of capitalist state repression back up the bosses. While many leftists have called on the Chávez government to investigate, Trotskyists call for organizing workers defense guards and imposing workers control of production. Venezuela today is stuck at a crossroads. Building a Bolshevik-type workers party based on Trotsky’s program of permanent revolution is key.

The International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda is a kangaroo court process designed to eliminate and silence political enemies of their proxy Rwanda. These prisoners affirm: "that the ICTR has put us in prison, first and foremost for political reasons. On that account WE ARE POLITICAL PRISONERS OF THE UNITED NATIONS"
04-12-2008 20:23Following todays ruling by the European Court of Human Rights it makes sense for activists to get their requests in right away. This will put pressure on the police to start removing DNA and fingerprint evidence were people have been arrested but not charged.
