Conspicuous and inconspicuous examples of theft by the capitalist system
the bush regime wants us to believe that war is necessary to get rid of saddam husseim and his wmd. this argument is hypocritical and bankrupt since the bushies are ready to use weapons of mass destruction against iraqi civilians, including nuclear weapons. meanwhile, millions are protesting against code red, white and blue, the real threat to world peace & security that the US empire represents.

Greg Palast, an American journalist who works for the BBC, explains how the World Bank and International Monetary Fund implode and then loot economies in Third World countries. He quotes Joseph Stiglitz, ex-chief economist of the World Bank, who describes the thievery as a four step program.
indy news service launches from iraq!
This is the essence of illustrating absurdity by being absurd.
In Wednesday's Willamette Week, the columnist writing under the guise of "the Nose" rails against the apathetic attitude of Portlanders on the F15 day of international protest. Through lazy and grossly inaccurate reporting of the day's events, the columnist claims to be lighting a spark to ignite the cynical political sensibilities of Portlanders, yet trivializes and even denies the very existence of the protest actions of the day.

I am a visiting law professor at Lewis & Clark College here in Portland. My law partner and I have filed the first in a series of lawsuits against movie theater chains that push back the starting times of movies in order to deluge the captive audience with advertising. If you are interested in striking a blow against commercialism, and if you have an interesting story about your recent experiences at theaters in Portland, please feel free to contact me. The press release and complaint are available at our web site below. Feel free to kick the link to any people who might be interested.

Bush's argument that war is necessary to get rid of Saddam Hussein and his weapons of mass destruction is hollow and hypocritical. The Bush Administration is ready to use US weapons of mass destruction against the Iraqis including "Shock and Awe" and possibly nuclear weapons. Millions of people are responding to Code Red, White and Blue, the real threat to world peace and security that America has become.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Venture capitalists from Chicago are behind an effort to start a liberal-leaning radio network that would offer an alternative to conservative talk show hosts like Rush Limbaugh.
Thank you to those who supported us!
Every one of us must raise our voices, and march in protest, now and again and again, writes Edward Said
This is a "corporate" media account of the millions that started marching in the streest as of Friday....Yes that's right the corporate media is beginning to catch on...probably because they do not want to lose advertising dollars...but here is the story from CBS News online
A huge antiwar march in Melbourne Australia yesterday--over a hundred fifty thousand--against the Anglo-American attack on Iraq. PM John Howard of Australia is second only to Tony Blair of England as an Anglo Lapdog of the American Empire. Watch the corporate media try to bury the news of this massive protest, as they will try to do with the February 15/16th peace protests in New York and San Francisco.
San Francisco has some impressive plans, according to the corporate media. I hope people in PDX can make stuff happen here.
america is under terror alert threatcon orange! orange is only one shade under...(gulp)...red! the cia warns of imminent bio-chemical, dirty bomb, us army antrhax, west nile/mad cow disease, hiv-aids attack by american government sponsored al-queda terrorists! stock up on duct tape. duct tape is the only thing standing between you, your loved ones, and your family from this nefarious and diabological attack. go to your local stores and buy duct tape, lots and lots and lots of duct tape. remember duct tape is your friend.
Much of the pro-war information cited by the White House comes from the Iraqi National Congress (INC), a front group established in the early 1990s by the Rendon Group. (PR Watch's Fourth Quarter 2001 issue detailed the Rendon Group's role in creating the INC.)
When listening to Pacifica Radio, or reading Indymedia, it quickly becomes apparent that activists have their own jargon. I've put together some English translations in an effort to help new readers get up to speed.
Ron Paul is at it again, this time teaming up with a democrat to repeal Bush's blank check for war. Since this story is being ignored elsewhere I felt it needed reporting here. This is a good read on how corporate media really works (or, more accurately, fails to work).
Only a few people showed up to protest Peter Jennings' visit to Milwaukie on Sunday night, but it was well worth it! I went with one other person; unfortunately we arrived a little late (Rex Putnam High School was hard to find - perhaps they wanted it that way... ), but when we arrived there were still five people standing outside with "No War" and anti-imperialist/media signs. (Sorry - I forgot my camera!)
This is a copy of a flyer that was placed on all the cars in the parking lot
at today's peter jennings KATU "count down to war"
The cops at first didn't want to let us in to the high school, but later said we could come in if we didn't distribute flyers or have posters. We snuck them in and tagged this flyer, as well as a few others, on all the cars.

Let's protest at the school starting at 5 to let the people at the meeting know they are being lied to by the corporate media, and to protest the war.

Interesting Corporate Media Analysis on Iraq War
Part II of The Beginning of the End of the American Empire!
If Bush is fearless, it's because he's never been in a fight that wasn't fixed.
He's never tasted defeat because daddy always purchased victory for him.
He's never accomplished anything his entire life - he's a wisp of smoke.

news, portland indymedia style, off-line. up-close and personal from media activist street cameras.
Sometimes "All the People" means not just the heel of the loaf.
Once again the local Portland television media provided a biased and very incomplete report about the January 18th protest!
Tossing around labels like "radical" and "liberal" is a waste of time. We've got work to do.

Media Missing New Evidence About Genoa Violence
Arguments against a war on Iraq by noted political analyst and author Michael Parenti.
Police in Genoa, Italy have admitted to fabricating evidence against
globalization activists in an attempt to justify police brutality during
protests at the July 2001 G8 Summit. In searches of the Nexis database,
FAIR has been unable to find a single mention of this development in any
major U.S. newspapers or magazines, national television news shows or wire
to stop the war, revolution is the only path
Venezuela is the fifth biggest oil producer in the world, and is the third largest supplier to the U.S. Before Dubya can attack Iraq, he needs to secure the Venezuelan oil supply. For this reason, the U.S. may sponsor a coup in Venezuela within the next month or so. And this is what the strikers want. Their goal is to disrupt Venezuela's economy until the military has to intervene against President Chavez. This strike was choreographed by experienced coup plotters in the U.S.
So there you have it, in a nutshell. You can't be trusted and you will never have privacy again -- not on the internet, not with your bank or credit card transactions, medical records, not when you fly on a plane or cross the border, and certainly not if you decide Bush and his neo-con fascists are wrong about forever war and you decide you want to do something about it. As it looks now, things are moving in a bleak direction rather quickly.
