Robert Fisk writes for The Independent in Great Britain.
I can't wait to see Abu Ghraib prison reduced to rubble by the Americans -- at the request of the new Iraqi government, of course. It will be turned to dust in order to destroy a symbol of Saddam Hussein's brutality. That's what President Bush tells us. So the rewriting of history still goes on.
This August, New Yorkers will witness the largest and most powerful RNC protest in history. The Bush administration has gone over the top with misguided, self-serving policies and so too will the people go over the top in their demonstrations against it.
Llevamos ya varias semanas viendo fotografías de las torturas a presos iraquíes por parte de tropas estadounidenses en la ya tristemente célebre prisión de Abu Ghraib y llevamos semanas con el consiguiente escándalo mediático, político y social (por este orden).
The U.S. is desperate to save the sinking ship of it’s Iraq policy. The horror and injustice of the actions our insane leaders are inflicting must be stopped and that is our responsibility. Please do all you can to end this madness. Inform others, act individually and together. jamie
Many readers may be veterans of movements for social justice and peace in Central America during the 1980’s. If so, many of you will recall the music of Carlos Mejia Godoy, a Nicaraguan folk activist. Please find below, among other Iraq war notes for today (4/27/04), information about the son of this wonderful artist who is facing severe punishment from the U.S. military for his refusal to continue to serve in the assault and occupation of Iraq. Please support his cause. He and his family need us now.

12 days away from the Sea Island 2004 G8 summit, the repression in Georgia (USA) escalates. State of emergency declared by Georgia Governor in six coastal counties. Police given the go-ahead to stop all demonstrations.
We are on the cusp of another great social change. All it is going to take is to lesson our dependence upon oil. If we put some serious muscle behind renewable energy, things like solar and wind power, our possibilities will be limitless.
After JFK, the White House surrendered America to World Zionism. Johnson cancelled all of JFK's anti-Zionist measures, the Arms Race resumed, the Vietnam War was escalated, war debt and interest skyrocketed, nuclear weaponry given to Israel, Henry Jackson in the Senate made Zionist policy Washington policy, the crew of the USS Liberty was murdered by Israel without a murmur, Treasury currency was withdrawn and interest payments to World Zionism increased, and the "flyspeck in the desert" soared from protectorate to partner to patriarch of Washington.
Worcester, MA - Off the heels of his well received self-published book “Stop Bush in 2004: How Every Citizen Can Help,” which has sold over 800 copies since its release last August, first time author and political activist Michael John Dobbins announced today a second edition of his popular underground book. Every chapter of “Stop Bush in 2004” has been expanded with a total of thirty more pages and a hundred new resources. With the second edition, Dobbins hopes to provide more ammunition for citizens looking to organize themselves and volunteer in efforts to defeat President Bush in November.
My local Republican newspaper called him Delling in their obituary headline. Bastards. They also said he was most famous for being in the "Chicago 7." Fuckers. I've but just begun grieving. My condolences go out to not just his lovely wife, but additionally every single person who ever knew him. Dellinger was a hero. Biblical proportions. I better stop writing now. I'm starting to sound like Clapton losing his kid to a balcony.
In a recent EU Council meeting EU-Comissioner Frits Bolkestein and the Irish Presidency reached a fake "compromise" on the "patentability of computer-implemented" inventions. But even in the Council of Ministers the draft of the Irish presidency was very controversial. They won a slim vote. The Council meeting was held by patent bureaucracts of the national Departments of Justice. It reverses a september decision of the EU legislative body, the European Parliament. Division of forces is still weak on the EU level.
