Union of Concerned Scientists:

Rolling Stone exposes systematic lying against candidates Tulsi Gabbard and Bernie Sanders. I don’t always agree with Matt Taibbi, but he has some independence.

The UN and corporate media have for years claimed only 10,000 Yemenis were killed in the US-Saudi war. But Yemen’s actual death toll is 70,000 to 80,000. Patrick Cockburn speaks about the whitewashing of the catastrophic war.

 

Catastrophic death toll of US-Saudi war on Yemen has been grossly downplayed

He told the truth about the US empire and its crimes.

This is a sad day. Bill Blum had chronicled the last few decades in his dispatches, which were posted here too. He had an expert bullshit-detector, and he knew the machinations of the power-hungry elite. It’s a great loss to the world that we won’t have his Anti-Empire Reports anymore. He leaves a number of books and articles that are still relevant to us now.

-Joe Giambrone

“His book Killing Hope: U.S. Military and CIA Interventions Since World War II–first published in 1995 and updated in 2004–has received international acclaim.

…Blum is also the author of America’s Deadliest Export: Democracy – The Truth About U.S. Foreign Policy and Everything Else (2013), Rogue State: A Guide to the World’s Only Superpower (updated edition 2005), West-Bloc Dissident: A Cold War Memoir (2002), and Freeing the World to Death: Essays on the American Empire (2004).  His books have been translated into more than 15 languages.

In organizing, we speak about the cycle of activism, which waxes and wanes throughout the seasons of the year. During the winter months, many turn inward to home and hearth. But with springtime upon us, it’s time to dust off our signs and banners and put on our marching shoes.

To kick-off the upswing of activism that comes with the spring, join World BEYOND War and our allies for a National Day of Anti-War Action!

Initiated by the Coalition Against U.S. Foreign Military Bases, the demands of the Spring Anti-War Action are:

  • End U.S. wars, bombings, drones, and other forms of U.S. aggression
  • Close all U.S. foreign bases
  • Bring all U.S. troops home
  • Dismantle nuclear weapons
  • Use the funds of the massive U.S. military budget – $1 trillion/year – for human needs and environmental protection

Actions are being organized in mid-April in locations across the nation – from New York City to Minneapolis to the San Francisco Bay Area. Find an event near you.

We are witnessing a time of increasing cross-connections between movements, with the U.S. military-industrial complex at the root of many systemic issues. The Spring Day of Anti-War Action highlights both the foreign and domestic impact of U.S. warmongering. Our nation’s perpetual state of war fuels the militarization of the police at home, contributes to an increasing surveillance state that infringes on our civil liberties, and abuses our tax dollars, leaving little to nothing for education, healthcare, infrastructure, and environmental protection.

Can you join this April for #SpringAgainstWar?

Telesur – Here is a photo of a young Stephen Hawking (with the canes) in London marching against the war in Vietnam in 1969.

More than 30 years later he spoke out fervently against the war in Iraq. He also joined the BDS movement against Israel, calling the situation “like that in South Africa before 1990. It cannot continue.”

He wasn’t just one of the most brilliant minds of our times, he was also someone with a social conscience and critical of capitalism, saying:

“If machines produce everything we need, the outcome will depend on how things are distributed. Everyone can enjoy a life of luxurious leisure if the machine-produced wealth is shared, or most people can end up miserably poor if the machine-owners successfully lobby against wealth redistribution. So far, the trend seems to be toward the second option, with technology driving ever-increasing inequality.”
