No War on Iran! US Out of the Middle East!

From popularresistance.org:   The reckless and dangerous act of war committed by Donald Trump and the Pentagon in killing Major General Qasem Soleimani of Iran and the Iraqi leader of the Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, has brought the conflict in the Middle East (aka West Asia) to a new level. The conflagration of war is growing with the United States making this direct attack on a top Iranian official in violation of Iraqi sovereignty.   As expected, the corporate media and many politicians are [...]

Grand Jury = State Terrorism

Grand Jury System = State Terrorism By Chelsea Manning httpss://www.aaronswartzday.org/chelsea-manning-asd-2019/ (As read on Saturday, November 9 at the Aaron Swartz Day Event, in San Francisco.) I wish I could be there in person, but I appreciate this opportunity to summarize for you my letter to the court that ordered me to be confined, explaining why grand juries are so dangerous. I am not alone in objecting to the grand jury as a dangerous relic that has evolved in ways that increase its power without increasing its protections. [...]

Hands Off Hong Kong

Impeachment is Finally on the Table

As Change Links was going to press, news broke that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had finally opened impeachment proceedings against pResident Trump, apparently finding that Trump's overtures and threats to the Ukraine seeking dirt on Joe Biden and his son constituted the shit she could not eat. Apparently, naked racism, crimes against humanity and war crimes do not constitute "high crimes" in her estimation, only dirty pool against a Democratic opponent. FYI, here's the story on Trump's latest planned atrocity, an act of war against Iran to [...]

Israel May Face First Arab to Lead Parliamentary Opposition

Israel May Face First Arab to Lead Parliamentary Opposition Joint List chair, MK Ayman Odeh (Hadash), was interviewed by Israel’s Reshet Bet (Network B) radio in August, to discuss possible outcomes of the September 17 general elections.

Cuba – Que Linda Es Cuba!

Cuba, Que Linda Es Cuba by Michael Novick, Anti-Racist Action LA I went to Cuba for the first time, as part of the 50th Venceremos Brigade, for two weeks in July and August, along with over 150 others, the largest solidarity delegation in many years. The visit was eye-opening about the on-going revolutionary process and humanitarian values of their socialist society. It inspired us to oppose the US embargo/blockade against Cuba, and to organize to demand that the US recognize and respect Cuban sovereignty and dignity, stop [...]

KPFK Turns 60, But Would Lew Hill Recognize His Listener-Sponsored Public Radio Station?

KPFK Turns 60, But Would Lew Hill Recognize His Listener-Sponsored Public Radio Station? by Michael Zeno This morning on the nationally syndicated Stephanie Miller Show, a recent addition which now airs five days a week on my local Pacifica station KPFK 90.7FM in Los Angeles, in between her wall-to-wall anti-Trump coverage and vitriol, she reported on a story about a man whose penis was ossifying into a "bone-er"(as she put it). The short segment was replete with a cacauphony of crude humor, sound effects, gasps and guffaws [...]
