Only You Can End the War

Crimes are crimes, no matter who commits them. This war, from its onset to now, has been a crime against humanity, and people of conscience must oppose it. You must oppose it. The point that must be grasped, and acted on with the courage, creativity, daring, and moral clarity of our convictions, is that this war is unjust, immoral, and illegal, regardless of who is in charge.

"When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying the cross."

Blowing the whistle on war crimes is not a crime

Guantánamo Habeas Week: Exposing Torture, Misconceptions and Government Incompetence

posted at www.uruknet.de

Andy Worthington

April 19, 2010 - In an attempt to raise awareness of the importance of the rulings being made in US courts on the habeas corpus petitions of the prisoners held at Guantánamo (as authorized by a significant Supreme Court ruling in June 2008), I’m devoting most of my work this week to articles covering the 47 cases decided to date (34 of which have been won by the prisoners), as a series entitled, "Guantánamo Habeas Week." Although I have covered the 47 cases in detail over the last 19 months, I had not, until now, followed the example of the Center for Constitutional Rights, the Washington Independent and the Miami Herald, who have all produced "Habeas Corpus Scorecards." As a result, this series kicks off with my own list, providing links to my analyses of the rulings, to the judges’ own unclassified opinions, and, where relevant, to my articles covering the prisoners’ release from Guantánamo, and progress reports on a handful of appeals...

Supreme Court Pushes Mumia Abu-Jamal a Step Closer to Execution

posted at revcom.us
by C. Clark Kissinger
In a three-sentence unsigned order, the United States Supreme Court has reversed a decision of the Third Circuit Court of Appeals that had found Mumia Abu-Jamal's original death sentence to be unconstitutional. The case has been sent back to the Third Circuit "for further consideration" in light of another decision by the Supreme Court that changed the Supreme Court's established precedent governing imposition of the death penalty...

Howard Zinn, author of 'People's History' and left-wing historian, dies at 87 in California

Ilan Pappe silenced in Munich
Steve Amsel, Desertpeace
November 13, 2009 - Anti-Zionist historian Prof. Ilan Pappe, one of the most important "New Historians", was scheduled to speak last weekend at the Pedagogical Institute of Munich. But a letter received from the "Israeli-German association of Munich", claiming that Pappe’s lecture would turn into "an anti-Israeli propaganda show," led the Munich Municipality to reconsider the event. The municipality eventually did not let Pappe use the room, claiming its decision was prompted by fears of violent clashes breaking out in the area. The Munich police insisted that there was no danger of fear for the security of those attending the lecture...

Get Ready for the Emergency Protests! They Want to Kill Mumia Abu-Jamal – But Joint Action by Us All Can Prevent This!

AHM-AT?K News Center
November 2, 2009 - It is now for almost 27 years that the African American journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal has been on death row in Pennsylvania, U.S.A., as a political prisoner. His trial and his conviction for murder were a typical example for racist bias and class justice. The presiding judge denied Mumia the funds necessary for a defense and called him a "n….r", the prose cutor first picked a jury which consisted almost exclusively of conservative White males, and then proceeded to paint a picture of the defendant as an ice-cold, ultra-leftist killer. In this trial, tainted as it was by racism and political repression, the former Black Panther Party spokesman Mumia never had a chance and was sentenced to death. All the same, the unbearable conditions of incarceration on death row Mumia has had to suffer for so long have neither broken him nor snuffed his voice. Even there, he doesn’t give up and continues to write and broadcast against the injustices of capitalist society...
