And They Call It Democracy..

by Michael Novick, Anti-Racist Action-Los Angeles/People Against Racist Terror (ARA-LA/PART) The quadrennial spectacle called the US presidential election is well-underway, with the candidates of the two major capitalist parties blatantly fore-ordained, and vying for who has the worse disapproval ratings.

War Against the Fleas

© 2023 by Mumia Abu-Jamal Perhaps Israel’s most respected statesman, former diplomat, Abba Eban, once said, “Nobody does Israel any service by proclaiming its right to exist.” That was then, in 1981.
