NATO’s fascist war

02-04-2011 19:20

You didn’t have to be clairvoyant to foresee what I wrote with great detail in three Reflection Articles I published on the CubaDebate website between February 21 and March 3: “The NATO Plan Is to Occupy Libya,” “The Cynical Danse Macabre,” and “NATO’s Inevitable War.”

01-04-2011 17:05

Politicians, the mainstream media, and the Police all dismiss serious crimes against ordinary people as mere “anti-social behaviour”, but think that trivial crimes against the rich and influential are shocking and should be treated as serious crimes.

International call for decentralized actions on 26 and 27 May 2011

Deauville and Cannes are casino-cities in which the scammers of the G8 \ G20 will decide on the wealth and poverty of humanity. But this time we won’t be attending the party.

Thousands of cultural practioners now face ruin, for the cost of two Apache attack helicopters, or 10% of this year's bonuses at RBS - the state-owned bank.
