If You Don't Want War: Why Don't You?

Scrawled on cardboard stuck to the telephone pole it said: "Fuck Bush!" ... that day in April when the US announced there would be no 2nd UN resolution on Iraq. The First Picture is Bush hiding you from me with his crimesof war. Or who is hiding who?

The First Picture is the Man who is hiding the sins of his own country - his own people - behind not the flag but himself - passivism in the US is fraternizing with the enemy (the 100 million Bush Nazis that are the backbone of Amerika)

While...across the great ocean...

in Germany

A Spring Day in April: A Chance of Bush

Scrawled on cardboard stuck to the telephone pole

it said: "Fuck Bush!"... that day in April when the US announced there would be no second UN

resolution on Iraq.

The day bombs fell on Iraq - a school day - 50,000 high schoolers showed up on Berlins’s streets in

full demo-regalia to reinforce the 20,000 adults already there.

One sign stuck out above the crowd:

"We Aren’t Allowed to Compare Bush to Hitler.

TOO BAD!"

Another polite sign said:

- Buck Fush -

... Scrawled on cardboard stuck to the

telephone pole... that day in April... bombs fell

on Iraq... high school... FuckBush!

Across the ocean in a small village in the southern Oaxaca mountains a schoolteacher said: If Bush loves humanity so much, he should begin by bombarding himself." 80 percent of Mexicans were against the war on that April day.

HAVANA, Cuba (FinalCall.com)

—Assata Shakur is a Black American folk hero. She is a freedom fighter that escaped the chains of oppression. She made it to the other side. She is a sister that defied the definitions of expected behavior by a Black woman. Her life is the subject of books, movies and poetry. In her own words, she speaks on Cuba and terrorism, differences between Blacks in Cuba and the U.S., living in exile and her hopes for a new world:

"When I was in the Black Panther Party, they (United States) called us terrorists. How dare they call us terrorists when we were being terrorized? Terror was a constant part of my life. I was living under apartheid in NorthCarolina. We lived under police terror. People have to see what’s really happening. Cuba has never attacked anybody.

Cuba has solidarity with other countries. They send teachers and doctors to help the people of other countries. It believes in solidarity. To see Cuba called a terrorist country is an insult to reality. If people come to Cuba, they’ll see a reality unlike what they’re told in America. This country wants to help, not hurt. The U.S. government has lied to its people. The U.S. government invents lies like Cuba is a terrorist country to give a pretext to destroy it. Ronald Reagan convinced people that the little country Grenada was a threat to the US, that allowed the U.S. to go into Grenada. The people in the U.S. have to struggle against a system of organized lies.

When President Carter was here they said Cuba

was involved in biotechnology to create

bioterrorism, but now they back track and say it

isn’t so. They lied and they continue to lie about

Cuba. Look at the struggle with Elian (Gonzales).

Look at the terrorism committed by the Miami terrorists, the Miami Mafia. Those people

(Cubans who fled after the revolution) are ex-plantation owners, exploiters of people. They

want to make Cuba the same kind of place it

was before but that’s not going to happen."

Her name means "she who struggles," and

that is the life she’s led. From growing up in

racist Wilmington, N.C., to her activism with

the Black Panthers and the Black Liberation

Army (BLA), Ms. Shakur has struggled:

"My life wasn’t beautiful and creative before I

became politically active. My life was totally

changed when I began to struggle. But that’s what

it means to be Black in the Americas, a life of

struggle.

Blacks in Cuba and the US share a history of

slavery yet their paths separate in how they view

their lives. I asked. Assata what she saw as the differences between Blacks in Cuba and the

US:

"We’ve (Blacks in America) forgotten where we came from. People in Cuba have not lost their memory. They don’t suffer from historical and cultural amnesia. Cuba has less material wealth than America but they are able to do so much with so little because they know where they come from.

[Back in the 60s] We knew what a token was then. Today young people don’t see Condoleezza Rice o r Colin Powell as tokens. That’s a problem. I realized that I was connected to Africa. I wasn’t just a Colored girl. I was part of a whole world that wanted a better life. I’m part of a majority and not a minority. My life has been a life of growth. If you’re not growing, you’re not going to understand real love. If you’re not reaching out to help others then you’re shrinking. My life has been active. I’m not a spectator. We can’t afford to be spectators while our lives deteriorate. We have to truly love our people and work to make that love stronger."

US sells more weapons than the rest of world combined. US spends more on defense than rest of world combined. The US refuses to participate in the UN or the International Criminal Court. Abolish the Security Council - Make the UN Democratic - Isolate the US before the disease spreads.

The Second Picture is those nice US (Israeli) troops who try to buy childrens minds in COlombia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine... more to come...

The Third Photo is the result for millions of children all over the world when their parents or their parents government do not follow the dictates of the US-EU EMpire to the letter - be it economic slavery (WTO-IMF-W.B), proper democrapcies (Us-styled liberal - representative (corpoate-directed)) or US terms of military surrender.

(jebra@impactodirect.zzn.com) or to them (ecosolidarity@yahoo.com) or just admit you don;t care and turn the channel back to mtv, cnn or whatever hog-heaven you prefer.

REQUEST: _ Several news and research groups who we work with are in great need of translators - english, spanish, portuguese and French (spanish-english - actually the other way around is the most important)

Information is not well shared around the world - most people do not have internet or cannot read english - or both - please help - please forward these statement, fotos and links - please -

If You Don't Like War: Why Don;t You? Act?

The Third Photo is the result for millions of children all over the world when their parents or their parents government do not follow the dictates of the US-EU EMpire to the letter - be it economic slavery (WTO-IMF-W.B), proper democrapcies (Us-styled liberal - representative (corpoate-directed)) or US terms of military surrender.

But protests - especially with the peace and the anti-globalization forces divided in the US - are not doing much - WHY - Why? /

Because you the people reading this don't read enough, you don;t take the responsibility to learn about economics, about the depths of the horror of the US-EU Empire... and you don't have the guts - (especially without having read and learned enough) to do resistance non-violently or violently -

Educacion -Impacto Directo tries to connect the facts to the truth so that people will no longer have easy excuses of ignorance (illegitimate though they might be) to avoid facing your denial and your shortcomings as a citizen, a member of civil society, and as human beings who ought to care a lot more about the problems of the world - especially us unfortuneates who live in the shadow of the Empire Beast - where most of the problems originate and are so well fed by our desires, consumption and lack of involvement.

admit you don;t care and turn the channel back to mtv, cnn or whatever hog-heaven you prefer.

Welcome to Baghdad. Us soldiers search everyone and donkeys too. How many more billions will the US people send to Iraq or elsewhere to kill and maim? The US has 100 militery bases around the world, we have alomst all the Weapons of Mass Destruction and are building many more and newer easier to use bunjkler-bombs and Neutron Nukes. In Europe they don;t think there is a left in the US. When GHerman friends spoke to US people in Cancun they felt that most US people were -a-political and didn't understan the need to be anti-capitalist! Help prove them wrong - figure out an economics that can be the pot-banging rallying cry to eliminater all corporations, the WTO, FTAA and Private Banks!! Bang the Pot or Rot!
