Assange should be Person of Year: Time needs a pair (tags)
"Reaction, meanwhile, was swift by readers on Time's website, including Avijit Paul who wrote, "So I guess Time has chickened out by not making Julian Assange as the person of the year.

I will spread this injustice like wildfire knocking your readership down to zero."

FILIPINOS IN THE UNITED STATES: WHITHER? WHENCE? (tags)
The publication of four essays by Filipino activist-scholar E. SAN JUAN, Jr. on the situation of Filipinos in "the belly of the beast" marks a historic stage in the criticial self-examination of this community at a time when the USA Patriot Act and Bush's "war of terror" have stigmatized this group as somehow connected with the Abu Sayyaf terrorism in the Philippines. It is time for Filipinos in the U.S. to stand up and fight continuing racial stigmatization and inferiorization of the Filipino national identity. Makibaka, huwag matakot!
History of a Struggle for Survival (tags)
This is not a book for those who want surface, sanitized, accounts of the Palestinian Diaspora. Ramzy Baroud is committed to truth telling, and his new book will undoubtedly disturb, shock, and outrage his readers. One can only hope that those who claim to love and support the state of Israel will not only read, but study, this important book. Not to make anyone feel ashamed, but so that even Israel's most ardent supporters will understand that no nation can brutalize, indeed terrorize, an innocent people forever.

Editorial Policy: The Open Publishing Newswire is an essential part of the Indymedia project. It is a globally accessible space for anyone to quickly self-publish breaking news, articles, commentary, digital photos, and audio. Los Angeles Indymedia volunteers moderate the newswire. In the last year and a half, the Los Angeles IMC Open Publishing Newswire has been besieged with detractive postings, other items, and commentary that are far away from what the Newswire is meant to be: a vital source of progressive and radical breaking news, commentary, articles, and announcements. There are no easy or perfect solutions to moderating an Open Publishing Newswire, rich with a healthy democracy of views. We have agreed by consensus on the following guidelines to help us decide what postings are appropriate and what are not. We believe that these guidelines will help to make the moderating process clearer for IMC volunteers and anyone who self-publishes; we hope to create an unencumbered, useful and Open Publishing Newswire for readers worldwide. We strongly recommend that you read our editorial policy

THE FIRST FULL-LENGTH BOOK ON THE WAR ON IRAQ (tags)
There were two wars going on in Iraq - one fought by armies with soldiers, bombs and fearsome military force. The other was fought alongside it with cameras, satellites, armies of journalists and propaganda techniques. One war was rationalized as an effort to find and disarm WMDs - Weapons of Mass Destruction; the other was carried out by even more powerful WMD’s, Weapons of Mass Deception. A special appeal to IndyLA Readers! Please help us democratize the U.S. media.
