A demonstration outside MTV's Music Awards is being planned for next weekend.

RIZAL IN THE U.S.A. (tags)

The anniversary of the death of the Philippines' national hero Jose Rizal this Dec. 30 affords us the occasion to reassess his work, particularly in the context of ongoing fierce class war in the Philippines between the oppressed, impoverished majority and the few privileged landlords and politicians bought by global capital. This is taking place at a time when the Philippines is being re-colonized by the U.S. as the world's imperialist hegemon. Would Rizal want the country partitioned to greedy transnational corporations and their national elites in the current terrorist war against peoples of color in particular? These reflections hope to provoke a re-thinking of what it means to be a Filipino with the Philippines in permanent crisis, using Rizal as a point of departure, especially in the light of its citizens becoming an embattled diaspora--more than ten million OFWs as exploited domestics and contract workers around the planet, while the country's rich natural resources, cultures and traditions are wasted by foreign profiteers of globalizing capital supported by local comprador parasites currently headed by the corrupt Arroyo regime. "O where is the hope of the motherland...."?

Voting in a Culture of Occupation: An Interview with Derrick Jensen (tags)

One of the things that I want to say about this that I haven't yet said is that a two party dictatorship is much smarter than a one party dictatorship. If you really want to control someone, what you do is you give them the illusion of choice. Then they perceive themselves as being free, and there's nobody more enslaved than the slave who doesn't even know that he or she is enslaved. One of the things the Nazis did...

Free Speech Radio's Uncritical Alliance with Indian Country Today (newspaper)? (tags)

In today's broadcast of "Free Speech Radio" (on KBOO), I heard commentary quoting the newspaper "Indian Country Today" in a way that appeared to make it sound as if this assimilationist newspaper is an authoritative, unbiased source in Indian country. Critical thinkers would do well to investigate the actual truth that this newspaper, led by editor Tim Giago, may as well have an open alliance with federal mandates to manipulate, suppress, quell and silence traditional voices and values. Autonomous (non-ideological) Natives/Indians expose the games of assimilationist-seeking "Indian Country Today" (note: Leftism is assimilationist when you want liberation from an entire value system!)
