“In the footsteps of Martin Luther King”, as if he’d lead a meaningless ask-for-nothing commemoration

Another million pawn march, to nowhere, commemorating the corporate brand of "MLK" sterilized of instructional efficacy, sanitized of King's ultimate demands: jobs, economic justice, peace. This weekend's 50th anniversary of the dream speech was the usual reminder that professional organizers abound who will gladly wear out would-be activists until they have no energy for real demonstrations. Of course there's "work that remains to achieve King's Dream", who knows that better than the assholes waylaying it, then every year genuflecting before their sainted fictional MLK.

Turks protest against war fever of their government and NATO

Many in the US government and European governments would like for Turkey to go and duke it out in Syria, but ordinary Turkish citizens are not in support of this war fever. See Protesters March Against War in Istanbul as Tension With Syria Escalates ... The Obama regime has done little in its four years in office to diffuse the Pentagon sponsored war making in the Middle East and Asia. In fact, the Obama Administration seems to be using Syria as a stepping stone for a coming attack against Iran.

Egyptians have fun attacking Hillary Clinton with tomatoes

Hillary thinks that she and Barack can continue brokering the US government desired breakup of the Egyptian popular rebellion against the US made- Egyptian military, but she might well be completely wrong??? Egyptians pelt Clinton motorcade with tomatoes Protesters chant 'Monica, Monica', throw shoes and water bottles at US secretary of state's motorcade.

Huge Rally protests yet another fraudulent Mexican election

The winner is declared after posting only an official 38% of the vote. A recount is done but only of half the ballots, not all of them. Much of the country utterly detests the return of the part of dictatorship back into controlling the country's highest office. They will make their collective voices known now, even if their voices can not be made known through Mexico's fraudulent electoral apparatus. Mexicans challenge Pena Nieto's victory in huge march ___We, in the US, face the same sort of challenges that Mexico faces. And our electoral system does not allow us to register our public discontent with the system here either.

Spanish miners lead defense against the super rich’s demands for yet more ‘austerity’ for everybody else

We once had a militant miners union in the US, much of it centered in the West Virginia coal mining regions. That militancy is now gone and the state is now noted for its Democratic Party electorate opposing Barack Obama mainly because he is Black. However in Spain, the coal miners are still militant and are in the forefront of defending Spaniards from the repression of the 'austerity' agenda of the European and American super rich. Spain coal miners block roads in mass strike.

Quebec’s government makes democratic protest an illegal act

One gets so damn tired of always hearing people in the US and Canada parrot the corporate media bullshit that they live in some sort of democracy. The increasing crackdown's on all forms of political demonstrations keep getting more and more dictatorial Police State like and here is the current situation now in Quebec as student protests continue to rock that province with protests against rising tuitions. The provincial government of Quebec has passed emergency legislation to curtail the most sustained student protests in Canadian history. 33740

Up to 200,000 young people ‘occupied’ Montreal last week in protest

Turns out that the Occupy Movement is not so dead after all, it's just that the corporate media wants you to think that it is. 'Occupy Montreal' is not exactly organized in the way that Occupy Wall Street has done up to now, but it was way more successful last week when massive anti-government demonstrations took place there in Quebec and the majority of the demonstrators were young people! What if this youth protest begins to spread once again into the USA? See Students stage monster march in Montreal to protest against tuition-fee hikes- Read it on Global News ...If it does, that will shake the entire world up! Youtube has an excellent video of this march and protest... Montreal Student Protest - March 22, 2012 - Manifestation Étudiante Montréal.

How to defeat Kettling

The British anarchists showed the way. Kettling, by the way, is the full scope of the 'free speech zone" bullshit the pigs like to publicize. "Free" speech but only in an area enclosed by a wall of police armor, clubs, tear gas, pain weapons, and of course conveniently far far away from witnesses like the so-called "free" press. And when the "free" press actually do wander too close to the "Free' speech zone, they're arrested for inciting a riot. But the Brits showed the way, last week, successfully mobbing Prince Charles' car, frightening him and his beard Camelface. errr "bride Camilla" yeah, that's the ticket. And the method is simple in its brilliance and brilliant in its simplicity. 20789

December 30, 2008 national anti- State Terrorism protests

Yesterday we only managed to get out about 25 of us here in Colorado Springs to protest US-Israeli State Terrorism, but around the country there were many more who demonstrated with us. Here next are a few videos of the action in San Francisco where somewhere between 5,000 to 10,000 spontaneously took to marching through downtown in that city, after early completing a rally in protest at the Israeli consulate. 5896

Iraq speaks up: Get Out, Occupiers!

How many times have I heard the words from Democratic Party type liberal smurfs, saying that demonstrations supposedly accomplish nothing? Yet how to explain that the Iraqis seem to think otherwise and just held a huge demonstration in Baghdad under conditions that Americans cannot even begin to imagine having for themselves? Iraqis stage mass anti-US rally. 5160
