Research Dilema: @ critiques of WTO
Plagued by authoritarian leftists, nearly all critical coverage of WTO activities is founded on a bemoaning of the loss of nation state soveriegnty. While I can think of anti-authoritarian critiques of the WTO until I'm blue in the face, can anyone else find clear examples of the WTO doing something nasty that DOESN'T just provide a picture of a poor benevolent government having it's wonderful dolphin-safe policies overridden? Know what I mean?
Aagh! And I don't want to hear the goddamned word democracy either!

On How US Imperialism Uses Korean Blood to Kill Arabs
We call for support of the DPRK and Cuba who are being threatened by US imperialism through escalation of war moves and war rhetoric and threats of economic sanctions.

We call for unconditional support for Syria, the Palestinian intifadah, and the Lebanese Hizbullah who are standing strong against the Zionist enemy of "israel", this instrument of US imperialist penetration and oppression in the Arab homeland.

The Lorax:  Speaks for the Trees like CFA Speaking Truth to Power -

You have to think of who runs the institutions. All institutions have power structures. It is those that censor, demean, ostricize, destroy, lie, and spread hatred that we must oppose. Anytime someone feels they have a right to tell you that you can or cannot participate in a public endeavor based on your free speech, tell them to go back to Nazi Germany. Always SPEAK TRUTH TO POWER.

To our friends in the Anti-Globalist Movement:ACCEPTING "ISRAEL" MEANS ACCEPTING GLOBALISM
The Zionist Jewish colony that calls itself "Israel" is the poisoned fruit of the racist Zionist movement. The Zionist Entity and Zionism in general constitute an integral and crucial part of the globalist onslaught. There can be no rejection of globalism that accepts the Zionist entity, any more than there can be a rejection of globalism that accepts other instances of colonial rule.

How the System is Bending Me Over

These were all for traffic violations, only one of which was really my fault. Because I have an out-of-state license plate and because I have a "Don't Attack Iraq" sticker on my car, I feel that it's become open season on my car.

GANDHI ON KUCINICH
Even Gandhi dealt with the Bureaucrats vs fighting them and he won! If you want peace you have to be a part of it. "We must be the change we wish to see in the world." The Peace movement is not dead or dying, it is merely succesfully reinventing itself. Kucinich is a voice on the television that will speak for those that want an end to Nafta and WTO and want a Peace Department.

I am amazed I do not see much more Kucinich support in Portland, but then again when we actually have a chance at making real change, many "activists" shun the chance. How can we remain codependent on struggle and strife if we are succesful? Now there is the real problem.
