An Open Letter to the American Military in Iraq
This is a letter prompted by having seen the pictures of the torturing of Iraqui prisoners by American Army personnel. The false posturing by our diabolical president and the falsehoods of the generals notwithstanding, this is NOT atypical of the America they have been ushering in for over 2 decades. The majority of the soldiers in Iraq (and anywhere in the world) are like the ones in the pictures because the leaders are like the ones in the pictures: perverted psychopaths

Are they admitting their accounts are not trustworthy? They slam us for being anonymous, then sign their rant "BY WW EDITORIAL STAFF."

There are four possible accomplishments that will almost certainly guarantee a Bush/Cheney re-election in November. Achieving any one of the four greatly increases the odds of Republican success at the polls. Achieving two of the four makes Bush/Cheney a lock. Achieving three out of four and Bush/Cheney win by 15 points. These scenarios are as follows...

They want to change things but suddenly find that there is no going back to freedoms enjoyed before 9/11 because the owners, the true power, got the curtailment of press freedom that they were looking for. Put Sinclair on your list of people to be shot along with Bush and the rest of the devils. Check this article on the CNN website.

political prisoner Hugo Pinell, a true warrior goes to board
Hugo Pinell in the visiting cell at Pelican Bay in 2001
I confess I've been watching the NBA playoffs, having always loved basketball. (I used to take gleeful pride in outshooting grown men when I was a teenager playing ball on the court of Liberty Park in Jamaica, N.Y.) Recently, when Carl Malone left his torn shirt on during a Laker win, he told a reporter the reason: "I'm a warrior!"

I couldn't help thinking that not only Malone but most Americans don't know what a true warrior is. So I thought I would make it very clear to folks that we do have warriors, true warriors, soldiers who fought hard for our dignity, self-determination, and freedom - who put their lives on the front lines of struggle against racist repression inside and outside of the concentration camps and torture chambers of the state. However, most of our warriors are still locked up in prisons across the nation.

An open letter to the liberal organizers of the pro-choice march
This past Sunday, April 25th, many thousands of Progressive voters, Green Party members, Ralph Nader supporters, radical feminists and anarchists stood in solidarity with the women of the USA and Planet Earth in demanding access to abortion without Church/State interference and without apology. Given the sponsors of the event, we were not entirely naive about some of the sentiments we'd hear expressed from the stage, and who we'd hear them from -- but nothing could prepare us for the shock of the depth, breadth, and pervasiveness of the collective public insults, hypocrisy and effrontery directed at Progressive/Green/radical constituencies by the day's speakers, including, as we're all well aware by now, former Secretary Of State Madeleine Albright, notorious as the architect of brutality and murder in Kosovo, Palestine and Iraq. . .

Iraq: a pattern emerges from "negotiations"
It is clear that the neocons had no real plan for the occupation, but a plan may be emerging out of the mishaps and mistakes to date. A way to slowly take over the entire Middle East, piece by piece. In the old days of the Ottoman Empire, they were called "satrapies" in the Middle East. Before Mao Tse-Tung united the Chinese people, they were called "war-lords" in China.

Voting for Kerry is voting for political violence.
There has been a lot of discussion on various threads about political violence vs. non-violence. Various people and organizations appear to have opposed the march last Saturday due to their opinion that the organizers advocate violence.

All the various comments, many of them harsh and aggressive against the idea of political violence, started making me think about this more.

Rewilding: A Primer for a Balanced Existence Amid the Ruins of Civilization
From "Back to Basics, Volume Three: A Primer for a Balanced Existence Amid the Ruins of Civilization"
in Green Anarchy #16/Spring 2004


We are often asked what our vision of society looks like, what kind of world we are fighting for, or how we would like to live. As anarchists, it is important to always keep this question open. While we can certainly agree on some basic things we are against: domination, hierarchy, control, government, representation, etc., what we are for is endless. This primer is an accumulation of our collectives' observations, experiences, and some suggestions on how one could reconnect with wildness and to becoming feral. We come from the dirty chaotic moving earth, not sterile white stagnant boxes... and this is our journey home.
