PHILIPPINES: Call for a National Conference Against Dictatorship (tags)
Since he assumed office, President Rodrigo Duterte has still failed to fulfill his promise to “provide for those who have little”: Workers still continue to receive low wages and experience job insecurity because he has failed to fulfill his vow to end contractualization.

Philippines: Where does the FOI campaign go from here? (tags)
Today, we close our people’s campaign for the passage of the Freedom of Information (FOI) Bill in the 15th Congress. We have, to the extent that our capacities and limited resources permitted, exhausted all avenues that we thought were open to us to get positive, decisive action from the leaders of the House of Representatives and from President Aquino no less.

Code Pink Betrayed by Anti-War's "Leadership" (tags)
While Cindy Sheehan led Code Pink's protests against the U.S. led war in Iraq outside of Bush's Crawford , TX ranch, she was the most popular activist with the anti-war's pro-Democrat establishment, yet Code Pink's current protests against Obama's continued military occupations in both Iraq and Afghanistan are ignored and scorned by the establishment neoliberals who claim to lead the peace movement. Most likely we can expect this neoliberal establishment element to support additional U.S. troops sent to Afghanistan, our current alpine quagmire..

On the Gaza Conflict (tags)
Israel’s claims of self-defense are clearly refuted by the disproportionate consequences of its aggression. With the death toll rising to 599, including 133 children, 33 women, and 6 medics, Israel can no longer hide the fact that its actions are tantamount to genocide, as Richard Falk, the United Nations special rapporteur on human rights in the Palestinian Territories, has pointed out.
The Dems Are Going the Way of the Whig Party (tags)
The 2006 mid-term election was the tipping point marking the decline of the Dems. They had promised that if they won, that they would end the Iraq War. The Peace Movement was both blind sided and outraged by their refusal to keep their word. This is why, too, Cindy Sheehan, has left the Democratic Party. The Dems have morphed into the DemRepublicrats. Soon, they will be going the way of the Whig Party and taking Sen. Barack Obama with them.

– The Raw Story
Voices of the Iraq War Dissenters Ring Out (tags)
The horrific Iraq War, launched by the Bush-Cheney Gang, is now in its fifth year, with no end in sight. Nevertheless, there were some stouthearted souls inside both the governments of the U.S. and the UK, (Denmark and Australia, too), who tried to expose the lies of the wire pullers. In “Dissent: Voices of Conscience,” co-authors Col. (Ret.) Ann Wright and Susan Dixon tell their compelling stories. It’s current history and a great read, too.
U.S. Catholic Bishops “See No Evil” in the War Party (tags)
The Bush-Cheney Gang has been running the country into the ground the last seven years, while creating a framework for a fascist police state. It has also slaughtered 1.2 million Iraqis and sent 3,867 of our finest sons and daughters to a early grave in an illegal and immoral war. But, you wouldn’t know it from any of the results of the annual conference of U.S. Catholic Bishops. To them, abortion is the greatest evil facing Mankind! Go figure!
Is The Oregon Truth Alliance "grassroots" or "astroturf"? (tags)
When I first wrote this, I had no idea how close my suspicions might be. Since, I've been told by friends that none other than Nico Haupt has been posting his hysterial guesses about my identity, less than a day later, at his blog: http://www.bloglines.com/blog/ewing2001?id=4026 Mind, not too long ago, they were all certain I was a fat, cigar chomping, FBI agent, so go figure. From a bloke who believes no planes hit the towers on 9/11, this wackiness is to be expected. The "Judy Wood-space beam" crowd will swallow it of course, but the rest of us know better. The desparate attempt to scare me--pathetic that it is- does confirm my research below is not far off the mark, chums...
Locals Protest Vulture Capitalists and the Iraqi War (tags)
On March 19, 2007, the Baltimore City Council unanimously approved a Resolution condemning the Iraqi War, the lies that got us into it, George W. Bush’s insane “Surge,” and demanded the troops be “safely” withdrawn from that conflict. On that same night, a Peace Rally was held at St. Vincent de Paul RC Church. The Rev. Heber Brown III said: “It’s time for us to raise hell for peace in our churches.” The event was sponsored by the local UPJ group.

The US Peace Movement and Hezbollah (tags)
Many peace activists may have felt somewhat bewildered by Hezbollah's smashing success in outfoxing and outfighting the Israeli army in southern Lebanon. Was it right to feel such a visceral satisfaction from these battles fought by a group that was also lobbing rockets at Israeli civilians? Where did we stand on Hezbollah, really? We who seek peace must ask ourselves if we have not also gone 'insane', expecting different results from actions that obviously haven't worked. To guard our optimism in the New World Order, we Americans will have to learn to see peace the way most Palestinians see it: as the inevitable fruit of resolute resistance to aggression and injustice.

It was a mistake for the peace movement to give Kerry a pass during the campaign, and it needs to correct that error by becoming much more militant now. But that doesn't mean wholesale rejection of the Democratic Party.
RALPH NADER, UN CANDIDAT BAILLONE DANS UNE ELECTION SANS ENJEUX (tags)
En combattant la candidature de Ralph Nader, qui porte les idées progressistes depuis plusieurs décennies, pour donner un blanc-seing au clone démocrate de G.W. Bush, les notables du mouvement « N’importe Qui Sauf Bush » ont ruiné cinq années de mobilisation croissante depuis la naissance du mouvement alter-mondialiste en 1999 à Seattle, jusqu’au mouvement anti-guerre qui a rassemblé des millions de personnes dans le monde en 2003, et qui exige aujourd’hui la fin de l’occupation étrangère en Irak et en Palestine. Au moment où la prétendue "guerre contre le terrorisme" s'intensifie, le mouvement pacifiste reste à reconstruire.

Zionism as Jewish National Socialism (tags)
There is a law in Israel, passed in 1985, which forbids political parties to openly oppose the principle of a Jewish state. Neither are they allowed to work for a change of this principle through democratic means. A party so doing will be banned from elections to the Knesset. Democracy is thus denied to those citizens - even Jews - who wish to work within the parliamentary system towards replacing the Jewish state with a secular state which represents all its citizens' equal rights regardless of religion or ethnic origin.
