The relentless anti-Syria propaganda of “The Independent” newspaper comes to a close (tags)

The final print edition of Britain's “progressive”, “pro-democracy” newspaper “The Independent” has been published on March 26th, 2016. It is worth remembering that with the launch of NATO’s genocidal wars on Libya and Syria in 2011, the long-discredited “anti-war” facade of “The Independent” had totally collapsed; despite the highly deceptive propaganda rhetoric of its gatekeeper “journalists” such as Robert Fisk. The front pages of “The Independent” compiled below illustrate the more blatant strand of its 5-year-long virulent, appalling anti-Syria propaganda.

Merkel's visit: Germany and Turkey at the forefront of NATO's war propaganda against Syria (tags)

Once the U.S., German and Dutch Patriot missile batteries in south Turkey became operational under NATO command, first the defense ministers of Germany, Netherlands and Turkey, then Germany's Prime Minister Merkel visited those sites located some 100-120 km from the Turkish-Syrian border. A visit by the U.S. Foreign Minister Kerry is due to follow. Furthermore, the “Syrian National Coalition” will be holding a meeting in Istanbul to nominate the “Prime Minister” of the “interim government”. Meanwhile, Turkey’s Prime Minister Erdogan is continuing his vitriolic attacks against Syria’s President al-Assad in an effort to cover up his government's monumental war crimes against Syria.

ALLIANCE PHILIPPINES MARKS 113th Year Start of Filipino- American War (tags)

The Alliance Philippines marks 113 years ago, on February 4, 1899, the Philippine-American War (1899-1914) broke –out. Today we gather in protest and militant solidarity in almost 60 cities and several cities all over the world to condemn the US threat of war against Iran. The Filipino-American War begun by a United States sentry who shoots and kills a Filipino soldier making an attempt to cross the bridge in Sta. Mesa, Manila on February 4, 1899. This war deliberately provoked and started to legitimize America's colonial design to acquire Spanish colonies, the Philippines, Cuba and Puerto Rico in the Pacific and Atlantic oceans at the turn of the century. This is the same way that the US is going to provoke a war in Iran. The same way it use the sinking of the Maine in 1898, the Luisitania in 1916, the bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941, the Tonkin Gulf Crisis in the 60's and the 9/11 incident to attack Afghanistan and Iraq.

AFP VIOLATES OWN CEASEFIRE DURING PEACE TALKS (tags)

The PESANTE BULETIN, the news service of PESANTE-USA bassed in the United States reported today that the Armed Force of the Philippines (AFP) is violating the mutually-declared ceasefire which began on 15 February 2011 and will end on 21 February 2011 by conducting military operations in the guise of “civil-military operations” (CMO), “Peace and Development Teams” (PDTs) or “Community Organizer for Peace and Development” (COPD) in many barangays in all provinces of Mindanao. According to Jorge MAdlos of the NDF-Mindanao, fully-armed AFP-PNP-CAFGU units enter barrios or communities in platoon or company formations under the guise of promoting “peace and development” in a desperate attempt to “win over” the people through deceit and intimidation, taking advantage of the NPA reciprocal ceasefire. They break into two groups, whereby one takes charge of psy-war operations in barrio or community centers, while another does the security clearing operations.

Lista de Retenes / Checkpoint list for 11-13/feb/2011 (tags)

El fin de semana pasado fue el Super Bowl y hubo muchísimos arrestos e incautaciones de automóviles de personas que no estaban ebrias, pero a las que el sistema no les permite manejar legalmente. Pero la represión no descansa, sea la excusa un día de festividades o no. Por eso aquí les tenemos una lista corta de los retenes para este fin de semana. Recuerden que como la represión del gobierno no descansa así también la resistencia nunca debe descansar; no olviden renunciar los retenes que vean o si escuchan por algún medio que va haber un retén hagan su aportación a esta lista.

Last weekend was Super Bowl weekend and there were many arrests and car confiscations of people that where not drunk, but people that the system won’t let drive legally. Nevertheless, repression does not stop, whether a it's holiday weekend or not. Therefore here is a short list of checkpoints for this weekend. Remember that just like repression does not rest, WE the resistance should also stay vigilant; don’t forget to denounce the checkpoints that you eye witness or if you hear about a checkpoint, share the information comrades!

As of July only more than 2,000 veterans have received their claims out of the 35,000 who applied since February 2009 While the passage in February of the “equity compensation” legislation brought so much hope and rejoicing for thousands of Filipino World War II veterans who, for decades, had lobbied for recognition for their war-time services to the United States,six months later, most of these veterans, now in the late 80s are still waiting for the one-time, lump-sum compensation which went with the recognition of their military services.

The Association of Widows, Relatives and Advocates for Equality (AWARE) (tags)

AWARE was formed after the passage of S. 1315 which excludes Filipinos veterans in the enhanced American veterans law of the 110th US Congress. This is the 2nd Recession Act of our time that discriminates against the Filipino World War II veterans. In its place, on February 17, 2009- the 111th US Congress passed the Stimulus Bill or the American Recovery and Reinvestments Act (ARRA) that includes a one time-lump sum benefits for Filipino veterans. But the lump sum has quit claim, no recognition to the veterans and no benefits for Filipino World War II widows. Thus on December 8, 2008, the widows and relatives of veterans banded together and formed this organization-AWARE in Los Angeles and San Francisco to fight and advocate for equal rights. The widows started to get organized at first to support he veterans struggle but later to fight for themselves. They held their protests in July 25, 2008, September 22, 2008, February 18, 2009, March 9, 2009 and March 21, 2009 in Los Angeles, San Francisco and other areas of the country.

Remember ther Recission Act, Fight Racism and Racial Discrimination! (tags)

On February 18th, we commemorate the 62nd year of the infamous Rescission Act. On February 18, 1946, the 79th US Congress removed the benefits and all entitlements for 250,000 Filipino World War II veterans by stating “their military service were not deemed active”. By a stroke of a pen,the US government removed the recognition of the wartime services and the sacrifices of the Filipino nation during World War II. For 62 years, Filipino veterans suffered discrimination and racism. Of all 66 nationalities that served the American flag, only the Filipinos were excluded from their benefits and recognition. To add insult to injury, the promise that they will given citizenship was granted later in 1990, when the immigration reform bill was passed.
