End the Land Mine Plague

Everyday around the world innocent people, many of them children, are killed or injured by millions of unexploded land mines and cluster bombs. Some of the cluster bomblets look like candy or a toy which attract a child in a field, orchard, and schoolyard or by the roadside.



Powerful aggressor nations are responsible for most of these anti-personal weapons being laid from land or by air. Most recently, Libya’s rulers laid mines on the outskirts of Ajdabiya as part of its battle…

Irish communists: No welcome for the English monarchy!

The Communist Party of Ireland condemns the preparations being made to welcome the representative of the English monarchy to Ireland. 

 The purpose of this visit—and it has been said explicitly—is to write “finish” to the centuries-long struggle of the Irish people for national sovereignty and democracy. It is a carefully organised symbolic act. Ireland’s unresolved national question is to remain unresolved. All the bourgeois parties are agreed that the shameful,…

Of Humans and Rights

U.S. newspapers sometimes print what they call the total death count from one or more of our wars, and all the dead who are listed are Americans.  They aren't all the Americans.  They don't include contractors or suicides or various other categories of dead Americans.  They certainly don't include those who died for lack of basic needs while we dumped half of our public treasury into wars. 



But they also don't include anyone from that 95% of humanity that's not from the United… Continue

ASIAN ECONOMIC POWERS BETTER BUILD THE ‘NEW SILK ROAD’

ASIAN ECONOMIC POWERS BETTER BUILD THE ‘NEW SILK ROAD’

 

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

 

The recent finalization of the 450-kph bullet train of China is among the top great news showing the positive, constructive life going on in Asia. Such a life has been led by the ‘emerging markets’ of the continent and seconded by the ‘dragon economies’. Altogether, the economic powers of the region are exhibiting to the world what is meant by the idiom…

Human Rights Group Demands Closure of Evin Prison Court

The Iranian Judiciary should immediately halt the operation of a recently-established “special court” at Evin prison, which confines judges and magistrates to the prison complex and denies lawyers and families any access to judicial proceedings, the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran said today.

“The newly-formed Evin Court has increased the influence of Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence over judicial matters by blocking lawyers’ access to clients and case files,”…

Book talk: War is a Force that Gives Us Meaning

Sometimes you come across a book that really matters. I’d like to thank Chris Hedges for writing one of those books, War is a Force that Gives Us Meaning. Hardly new anymore, but perhaps more timely than ever.



Hedge’s thesis here is that there is in human nature a void, a need for meaning and purpose. This need can be, and too often is, filled by what he frankly describes as the excitement and illusory heroism of war—“war usually starts with a collective euphoria”. His work,… Continue
