Guyana has a national crisis on its hands, we have been experiencing really heavy rainfalls over the last 4 days. I live on the East Coast at Turkeyen quite near the Caricom complex and we are presently under some 2 to 3 feet of water depending on what part of the house or yard that you stand on.
Scathingly humorous coverage of the Bush inauguration by John Breneman, editor of the influential satire website, the Humor Gazette.
In an attempt to exercise our right to political freedoms we can choose to oppose to the views of our democratically elected governments in a peaceful, but loud, manner -- if we so choose. In preparation for Dubya's recent visit to Canada, the Windsor Peace Coalition put together a bus to Ottawa. The following article recalls the strong arm tactics by CSIS against peace activists.
Coronation goes off without a hitch.
Citizens and students burn an effegy of Bush in Arcata's square plaza the night before his inauguration.
Live coverage of the coronation protests? Do they exist?
All of these photos taken by the military are of men. An interesting thing, in light of the fact that the Iraqi Red Crescent has announced that conservatively, 60% of the casualties in Fallujah, which are expected to be well over 2,000 people, are women, children, elderly and unarmed civilians.
The formal installation of the second-term administration of George W. Bush brings to power the most reactionary government in United States history.

The World Social Forum is a major assembly of progressive organizations and will be held in Porto Alegre, Brasil from 26 to 31, January 2005.
True to form, the Americans and the puppet regime they have installed are cooking the books. Senior US officials and interim Prime Minister Iyad Allawi repeatedly insist that all is well because insecurity will restrict voting in "only four of Iraq's 18 provinces". Four out of 18 is a little over 20 per cent and in the circumstances might be acceptable. But the truth is very different. Anywhere between 40 and 50 per cent of the population live in those four provinces.
U.S. military commanders invited suspected insurgents and religious and tribal leaders sympathetic to the resistance to gather Tuesday for a conference with Iraqi government and military officials. The invitees would be asked to sign a pledge not to support or participate in violent acts against Iraqi or U.S. forces through the scheduled Jan. 30 elections.

In response to the visit by George W. Bush, and the subsequent pandering to those who would rather support war than peace, the Windsor Peace Coalition authored this letter condemning our elected leaders and calling for action.

Hersh Adds Credibility to Speculation Margaret Hassan was the Victim of a Counterinsurgency Operation
A disturbing pattern developed in Iraq, after captives released by known groups within the Iraqi Resistance reported good treatment, while the unnamed groups who released videotapes showing men with their faces covered, armed with Western weapons, killed their captives. This prompted speculation that US/Israeli intelligence services were killing foreigners in order to bolster support for the war effort.

This story, originally carried in a major daily newspaper, is truly shocking. A woman convicted of trying to smuggle 2 kilos of heroin into the U.S. is registered to receive conjugal visits from the current Colombian Defense minister. He appears to have exercised at least one such visit. What's more, according to her application to receive conjugal visits from him, her relationship with him began when she was 15 or 16 years old, at which time he was around 47. I'm not making this up, and I'm not just repeating wild rumors. This is the straight dope on the people we are buying all these guns for.
"...in an October 2004 survey commissioned by Israel's Channel 2 TV, it revealed that 58% of adults aged 18-22 support "transfer" (the expulsion of Arabs from Israel), 26.4% believe the slain Kach Party founder, Rabbi Meir Kahane, was correct in his call to expel the Arabs, while one-third believe the Kach Party should be declared a legal organization once again. According to a concurrent Maariv report, a survey questioning 500 Israelis (representing a cross-section of society) revealed that 13.1% favor a national leader like Rabbi Meir Kahane (pro-Jewish, strong, and consistent)."
