Now, there's two generations of war resisters. I hope Canadians will be compassionate.
Scott Ritter said that although the peace movement failed to stop the war in Iraq, it had a chance to stop the expansion of the war to other nations like Iran and Syria. He held up the specter of a day when the Iraq war might be remembered as a relatively minor event that preceded an even greater conflagration.
During a first demonstration against the visit of President Bush to Brussels the Belgian Boycott Bush network started a series of colorful protests outside the McDonalds and the Bourse/Beurs in the centre of Brussels. Seven activists with masks dressed up as George W. Bush and handed out dollar bills calling for a boycott of U.S. brands. The US presidents wore large lincoln-style hats with the logos of the U.S. multinationals which donated millions of dollars to Bush's re-election campaign. They also carried placards with slogans such as "We love Bush - privatize everything" and "Human rights? On holiday in Guantanamo". Also the skeletal figure Mr. Death joined the protest with a coffin displaying the logos of six main U.S. multinationals which are the targets of the international boycott campaign: the oil campanies Exxon-Mobile (ESSO) and Texaco, the soft drinks giants Coca-Cola and PepsiCo, the food and cigarettes giant Altria (Philip Morris and Kraft) and McDonalds, the outstanding symbol of U.S. cultural and economic imperialism.

The Convention on Climate Change is the platform where the world decides what to do about "the Climate". Every year the climate big wigs give birth to pretty horrible things in the name of "sustainable" development. Kyoto was one of those. With russia about to ratify the Kyoto climate change agreement, and the Carbon Trading Market opening up for business world wide, State and NGO bureaucrats and business lobbyist almost rushed for last orders in the "Buenos Aires" Climate COP 10.

Last Tuesday evening, I traveled the mile or so that separates my house from the Land Park home of Stephen and Virginia Pearcy, intending to offer them a little moral support against those who would deny the couple's right to exercise free speech. What I encountered was a combination media circus and screaming match of epic proportions.

If radical labor such as the [URL=http://www.iww.org/]IWW[/URL] were to begin recruiting for and forming militias to enforce existing statist labour rights or fight the capitalist class with military tactics and Kalashnikovs mainstream media as well as every city, county, state and federal government would be all over it in a negative way. One wonders why then rightwing [URL=http://www.minutemanproject.com/]Minuteman Project[/URL] from Arizona can engage in these activities and the only way one can find out about it is through a journalist writing from Mexico City, Diego Cevellos, transmitted by the IPS.

Cross-examination by an Australian Senate Committee of a Defence Minister and an Australian intelligence chief has revealed that Australia and its Coalition partners are ignoring the Iraqi death toll. A detailed analysis sent to essentially all members of the Australian Federal Parliament documents an estimated 0.4 million avoidable, post-invasion Iraqi deaths.
The wisdom lies in learning the art of surviving relationships,instead of spoiling them. Being humans, we all need someone to care and share our emotions. In this materialist world to find a like-minded individual is rare. And,even if we find that person it is our responsibility that we don't loose him/her just because we failed to realise the right time to care.

This is how the sheep dogs keep the sheep moving so they can be exploited sheered taxed etc..
Dov Dribin was an Israeli settler who lived in Ma'on. Over the years, he had gained a fearful reputation with the Palestinian sheppards in his area. He must have felt it was his duty to beat, harass, or insult any Palestinian within range. Then, on one day in April, 1998, Dov took his hatred of his neighbors to the extreme. He came across two sheppards in the field, and shot one of them in the leg with his gun. The other sheppard, fearful for his life, struggled with Dov, managed to grab his gun, and fired a lethal blow into his body. Dov's death still lingers in the air today, and is reason enough for the occupation forces to consider At-Tuwani to be dangerous.
Why don’t we impose a tax on the movement of money in our economy, not a sales tax, but a toll on every financial transaction that occurs within our economic system? Based upon our eleven-trillion-dollar annual economy, the federal government could operate on the revenues produced by a simple transaction tax of much less than ten percent on the movement of money.

A little pink book by British authors Shirley and Holly Yanez, "Looking For Harvey Weinstein" has put the cat amongst the pigeons according to industry insider and tabloid journalist Al Bowman. CNN producer, Mercedes Torres swapped sides and abruptly severed all media after an initial endorsement from Larry King.

Recently, the Center for Corporate Responsibility released a report, the Ten Worst War Profiteers of 2004. Although this report was insightful and possibly shocking (with Halliburton coming in at a meager #7), does it really give us the whole story? Tyranny, including foreign entanglements, needs money. Most, if not all, of that money is coming from US Taxpayers, but who is making the profits? Most of the top ten don't provide goods or services to the general public. Although we've heard it for years on numerous issues, a boycott is really in order.
The Justice of Roosting Chickens: Ward Churchill Speaks
The neo-con agenda - which happens to be Sharon's agenda - is once again pure divide and conquer: the aim is to destabilize what neo-cons see as the emerging "Shi'ite crescent" in the Middle East - Iran, the new Iraq and Lebanon, with Syria as a key transit point.
