Against Zionism, neo-cons and US oil wars? This party’s for you

Thursday, April 27th, 2006

I just found this on the website of a political party here in Britain. If you agree with it, perhaps you should consider joining:
We will also withdraw all British troops with immediate effect from Iraq. We will never again involve British troops in any more American ‘wars for oil’ or neo-con adventures on behalf of the Zionist government of Israel.
Care to guess where this came from? Make your guesses in the comments, below.

Towards a new labour media movement?

Monday, April 10th, 2006

“The ideas of the ruling class are in every epoch the ruling ideas” — this well-known quotation from Karl Marx was chosen by one speaker to open his presentation at an extraordinary conference which has just taken place in Cape Town, South Africa.
The conference, sponsored by the International Federation of Workers Education Associations (IFWEA) and one of its South African affiliates, Workers World Media Productions (WWMP), was entitled “Workers’ Education and Workers’ Media in a Global Economy“. Participants came from North and South America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. They represented some of the most innovative projects in the labour movement today.
