Mr. Bush, Tear Down That Wall
This fence is only meant to keep Americans IN, especially when the fence
runs along the entire U.S./Mexico border.
And don't forget the fence the Bush administration has planned for the
U.S./Canada border, particularly along Washington/British Columbia, where
it is hoped to keep Osama bin Marijuana from entering the U.S.

Indymedia: Brad Will, Bravery and Our Common Struggle
I think we should all take a look at what is so important about indymedia work and why it is so important and what it means to each one of us. I hope that we draw courage of conviction from Brad's example and that we stand together throughout the indymedia network and as individuals to redouble our efforts. I think you all know that it could have been any one of us. But, it is so much easier for them to take us one at a time. We stand much more strongly together in what we can all be proud of. Our brave common struggle. Indymedia.

Over the past few days, most of us have witnessed the fact that the MSM, usually very mute when it comes to questions of Officer Liability, has actually been exposing these thugs to treatment usually reserved for the more helpless among us. Today, the big kahuna actually ADMITTED that it was action from a "blog" that called attention to Officer Humphreys' violent history.

Eamon McGuire's Book Cover What is it like to be on the run with the CIA looking for you? Well, Eamon McGuire, an Irishman, can tell you something about that, along with what it was like to be member of the IRA's South Armagh Brigade. For over 20 years, McGuire led a double life: one as an aircraft engineer, the other as an IRA operative. His newly-released book, "Enemy of the Empire: Life as an International Undercover IRA Activist," is compelling reading.

"War" on Iraq in perspective: the developing US imperialism and demonocracy
The military invasion and occupation of Iraq is examined within the context of US imperialism. The dual nature of US politico-economic system is identified as an imperialism-democracy complex, with international imperialism and domestic capitalist democracy being its essential and interacting components. Some general laws of this imperialism-democracy complex are also proposed and it is shown how imperialism leads to the transformation of democracy into demonocracy, at its higher stages of development, like that of the US. The specific facts of the great conspiracy of the invasion, occupation, plunder, and robbery of the fabulous oil and other resources of Iraq, are placed and examined within that context. The most important need for understanding and analyzing various conflicts and invasions, constantly created by the US imperialism, throughout the world-the Iraqi invasion being the latest manifestation of these-in all their complexity and in the dialectical complexity of imperialism and democracy-is identified and explained. It is self-evident that such colossal and complex problems as US imperialism and its various manifestations need to be understood and analyzed in all their complexity, in as much depth as possible, for the formulation of effective strategies and tactics to counter and resist these. Fragmented, simplistic, and shallow pseudo-practical approaches to such immensely complex and gigantic problems have lead nowhere in the past. These are unlikely to lead anywhere in the present or future either.

The fake compassion of Europe's right-wing: the Armenian genocide
It's interesting to see what issues can infiltrate and corrupt the Left. Usually the offenses are blatant— supporting the 'war on terror', electing 'progressive Democrats', calling for military intervention into a troubled region (Yugoslavia— and now Sudan). Sometimes though, more subtle topics can confuse and disorientate the Left, the most recent example being the sudden reemergence of the WWI Armenian genocide as a hot-button issue.

“Why Would the U.S. Attack Iran?” 22.10.2006 12:12
The Israel Lobby & War on Iran
While the Israel-First crowd isn't the only group that has called for attacking Iran, they are the primary ones doing so today. The more pragmatic imperialist camp - though certainly wanting to see Iran internationally isolated & advocating for "regime change" - have pretty much dropped the rhetoric about direct military assault since it as become clear that we really don't have the means to make such an attack serve U.S. interests. Only the Israel-First crowd -spearheaded by Israelis (like Olmert & Netanyahu), but strongly backed by their allies here - are still blatantly threatening military action. This has become especially true since entering election season - a new war is NOT a good sell.  http://www.whyattackiran.com/

PPB Officer Humphreys involved in previous ABUSE OF FORCE incident
I found this posting. Apparently-in context-it'd been
posted before and taken down by Potter or his minions, to be reposted as now found.

Maybe they'll take it down again, so it needs reposting
here at PIMC to preserve a record of it.

This is dynamite news as puts lie to the City's efforts
to spin this incident into a cover-up. Hopefully the
Chasse Family's attorneys are checking here for public
input into this case, or their investigator. Maybe we
should contact them to alert them to this posting. I
will endeavor to do so.

Meanwhile, we need to look into these cops backgrounds
for we might be surprised at what else is found that be
useful in court cases, as well as in the growing Court of Public Opinion!
