EUROPEAN SOCIAL FORUM: Together Under an Iraqi Shadow
By : Sanjay Suri - Thursday October 14, 2004
by Sanjay Suri LONDON, Oct 12 (IPS) - ’People Power’ had become another of those slogans until the rallies Feb. 15 last year against the imminent invasion of Iraq. Those rallies were not only the biggest Europe has ever seen, but everything since then proves that people were marching on the right path. The first European Social Forum (ESF) held late 2002 in Florence, Italy, gave birth to those rallies. The success of the rallies, backed by the force of the demonstrations (...)

’Corporate’ ESF sparks rival conference
By : Matthew Tempest - Thursday October 14, 2004
by Matthew Tempest A rival counter-conference to this week’s European Social Forum in London is being planned to protest at the "hijacking" of the anti-war, global justice event by mainstream organisations and individuals such as the trade unions and the mayor of London. This week’s ESF - the third annual meeting of leftwing and environmental activists from across Europe - is expected to attract around 20,000 people from across Europe for three days of debate. It will (...)

James Baker’s Double Life : A Special Investigation
By : Naomi Klein - Thursday October 14, 2004
3 comments
by Naomi Klein When President Bush appointed former Secretary of State James Baker III as his envoy on Iraq’s debt on December 5, 2003, he called Baker’s job "a noble mission." At the time, there was widespread concern about whether Baker’s extensive business dealings in the Middle East would compromise that mission, which is to meet with heads of state and persuade them to forgive the debts owed to them by Iraq. Of particular concern was his relationship with merchant (...)

Indymedia to U.S., U.K., Swiss and Italian Authorities: "Hands Off Our Websites"
By : Indymedia - Wednesday October 13, 2004
Evidence is beginning to mount that the authorities of at least four countries (Switzerland, Italy, U.K. and U.S.A.) are involved in last week’s seizure of two of Indymedia’s servers that brought down more than 20 of the Indymedia network’s web sites and several internet radio streams. Indymedia has yet to receive any official statement or information about what the order entailed or why it was issued. An FBI spokesperson, Joe Parris, confirmed to Agence France-Presse (...)

Republicans Love Red China
By : Erik Fortman - Monday October 11, 2004

by Erik Fortman Yes, I said it. The Republicans love Communist China. It was Nixon who turned public opinion in support of their terroristic, Communist regime. In modern times, the Bush Pentagon’s new “world map” indicates that China is our military ally! What the heck is going on here? I understand that Bush is better than Kerry. In this case, lesser-evilism still wreaks mucho evil. It was a Democrat who took us to fight China’s onslaught into Vietnam, and a (...)

"The FBI issued an order to Rackspace in the US (Indymedia’s provider with offices in the US and London) to remove physically one of our servers.

Intelligence Matters
By : 2ndop - Thursday September 30, 2004
I am so glad our intelligence was working two months before 9/11? No wonder we didn’t believe the advance warnings, we were too busy working with other governments to keep our president safe from terrorists who might use planes packed with explosives and crash them into buildings in Genoa. Our intelligence didn’t fail, they were just too busy with other "stuff". One does not need to be an investigative reporter, a deep thinker, or sherlock holmes to figure this one out. G8 (...)

Nukes in the US Protectorate of Iraq? Iran Looks to Its West and Says: I Don’t Think So
By : RON JACOBS - Wednesday June 23, 2004
By RON JACOBS In one more instance of duplicity and hypocrisy as regards the US plans for Iraq, Undersecretary of State John Bolton stated June 8, 2004 that Iraq could one day build nuclear power plants. Although that day is, in Bolton’s words "a ways down the road," it could happen once things settled down there. When that will be is anyone’s guess, of course, but that won’t stop the nuclear industry from salivating over more taxpayer dollars going into their pockets. (...)

The US army is paralyzing the heart of Baghdad as it builds ever more elaborate fortifications to protect its bases against suicide bombers.

Iraq War Supporters Lose in European Elections
By : LONDON - Monday June 14, 2004
Dutch opposition parties critical of the Iraq war scored significant gains at the start of elections for the European Parliament, while Prime Minister Tony Blair lost support across Britain in local voting, key tests since the invasion last year. Iraq, as well as domestic issues, concerned voters as the 25 nations of the recently expanded European Union began electing legislators a four-day process that started Thursday in Britain and the Netherlands.

Infamous ‘Miami Model’ of Protest Clampdown, Coming to a Town Near You

Jun 8 - When thousands of demonstrators converged in Miami last November to protest the latest round of negotiations over a Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA), city authorities dreaded a repeat of the failed police response that allowed activists to hobble the 1999 World Trade Organization ministerial in Seattle. Before the activists arrived in Miami last year, police warned that violent anarchists were (...)

Bush Faces Italian Anger Over Iraq on Rome Visit
By : Caren Bohan - Friday June 4, 2004
ROME (Reuters) - Italians greeted American soldiers as liberators when they marched into Rome 60 years ago but President Bush faces deep anger on his visit on Friday over the actions of a new generation of U.S. soldiers in Iraq. Authorities fear violent demonstrations during Bush’s two days in Rome, and Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, worried by the prospect of clashes in the streets, urged Italians to show "maturity and understanding of history."

United for Peace and Justice (UFPJ) condemns an executive order issued by Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue declaring a “state of emergency” throughout six coastal counties in Georgia.

Italians may make ’small doses’ of torture legal
By : Philip Willan - Saturday April 24, 2004
Torture may be acceptable provided it is administered in small doses, says a bill under discussion in the Italian parliament that has outraged human rights organisations. The Chamber of Deputies yesterday passed an amendment, tabled by the far-right Northern League, to the bill which opposition MPs denounced as a green light to "limited" torture but which government supporters said was essential for police. The amendment says violence and threats must be used repeatedly to qualify as (...)

G8 : Open Wounds

From an outside perspective, Genoa is still very much linked to the bloody G8 summit from 2001. In the following interview, which was conducted by the publishers of "Genoa etc." [www.etc-publications.com], Enrica Bartesaghi talks about her project to support the victims of the G8 summit in correlation with the city’s transformation into the European Capital of Culture.

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE
Sunday 28 October
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV

by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college. About a year into my studies, I (...)

Even as colleges and universities raise their tuition costs, they are relying more and more on adjunct instructors. Adjuncts are (...)

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

At first glance, it is almost unfathomable that anyone with a modicum of intelligence would have voted to retain Scott Walker as Wisconsin’s governor.

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
