The U.S. Creeps Closer to a Police State (tags)

When word first arrived that the G-20 would be meeting in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, activists began organizing protest demonstrations. Events like this are what freedom of speech is made for. What better occasion to protest than a meeting of the world’s 20 top leaders — most of them deservedly hated — where they will be imposing policy on billions of people worldwide? The majority of protesters consisted of labor and community groups; they encountered an army of police…literally.

RNC ’08: Pit Bulls On Parade (tags)

If you thought, in the wake of the nightmare of the Bush years, and the euphoria of the Democratic Convention, that the political pendulum in the USA was swinging to the “left”… If you thought that the Bush regime was so widely and bitterly hated that a repackaged version couldn’t seriously contend for the presidency… If you thought that the Christian fundamentalist theocrats were passé… Then you got a shocking wake up call from the Republican National Convention.

Solidarity to Sara Jane Olson from RNC Welcoming Committee and Arise! in the Twin Cities (tags)

The RNC Welcoming Committee and the Arise! Books and Resources Collective would like to extend their sympathies and solidarity to former St. Paul resident Sara Jane Olson and her family. While some call into question the actions of the Symbionese Liberation Army, the only way to avoid criticism is to remain silent, and so we find the words and actions of the SLA inspirational. The everyday violence of the state, of which the murder of several SLA members was only a part, is immense. Sara Jane Olson spent and continues to spend her life in accordance with her conscience, bravely resisting systems of oppression. We regard her a hero and history will as well.

Delivering the NO! at the RNC; The Battle for a Revolutionary Summation (tags)

As we sum up the week of protest at the RNC and look to the struggles ahead, we should think about those who will be cracking history books in the future. We need to think about this today as we run the streets and struggle to win hearts and minds, fighting for a whole different world. As we rise up to say NO! to this rolling juggernaut of imperialist destruction, we need to think about all those future people who will be learning about the historic struggles that took place in the early part of the 21st century. When the world was crackling with both danger and opportunity..how did history unfold?

Defend New York From the RNC: The Indypendent's new issue (tags)

The Republican Party couldn’t have picked a worse place to launch Bush’s re-coronation. With the army neck deep in Baghdad, it seems they have a uniquely hard time knowing where they’re not wanted. From his Pharisee fundamentalism to that frat boy smirk, it’s like Bush was created in a lab just to make a New Yorker’s skin crawl. Maybe it takes an enemy the size of Bush to bring this city together. Out of sight of the TV cameras and spin doctors, that’s exactly what’s happening.

Militant Direct Action is a must at the RNC (tags)

Diebold - The face of modern ballot tampering (tags)

“Critics warn local election officials could be trading one set of problems for another potentially as bad, or worse, than last year's election debacle. They vigorously argue that fully electronic systems pose data-security problems and lack a paper trail. "There's no way to independently verify that the voter's ballot as cast was actually the ballot being recorded by the machine,'' said Rebecca Mercuri, a computer scientist and visiting lecturer at Bryn Mawr College in Pennsylvania.”
