Bank Closures Impose Deepening Misery On Greek People
By Alex Lantier


Stock markets closed sharply lower in Asia, Europe and the US Monday, as a weeklong bank holiday designed to avert a collapse of the banking system went into effect in Greece and European Union (EU) officials escalated threats to expel Greece from the euro zone

Before The Dawn
By Kathy Kelly


When will day break? I haven't a clock nearby to tell me when, but I can't go back to sleep. When I see the children adapt so readily to the schooling denied them, when I watch my young friends struggle eagerly to take the small steps allowed them, sowing seeds of mutual understanding or planting trees in Kabul, and when I read such grace and dignity in the words of Mohamedou Ould Slahi after years of torture, I have to believe that a dawn will come. For now, it remains a blessing to work alongside people awake together, even in darkness, working to face burdens with kindness, ready to join with kindred spirits near and far, faces aglow with precious glimmers of a coming day

Libya War: The Unknown Costs And The Indemnified Interventionists
By Farooque Chowdhury


Today's Libya is a collapsed country, an epitome of failure in "humanitarian" interventionists' "intelligence" driven by business interests. Still the interventionists are not brought to book

The UN vs Eritrea
By Thomas C. Mountain


I spent Monday, June 22 in Geneva, Switzerland protesting alongside over 5,000 fellow Eritreans in front of the UN "Commission of Inquiry" offices... We were there because a UN "Commission of Inquiry" had just issued as nasty a lot of lies about Eritrea as one could imagine. But then none of the 3 Commission members had ever been to Eritrea and two had even called for "regime change" in the country?

Russia vs. China: The Conflict in Washington Over
Who Should Lead America's Enemies List
By Michael T. Klare


America's grand strategy, its long-term blueprint for advancing national interests and countering major adversaries, is in total disarray. Top officials lurch from crisis to crisis, improvising strategies as they go, but rarely pursuing a consistent set of policies. Some blame this indecisiveness on a lack of resolve at the White House, but the real reason lies deeper. It lurks in a disagreement among foreign policy elites over whether Russia or China constitutes America's principal great-power adversary

The Globalization Of War. America's "Long War" Against Humanity
By Dr. Ludwig Watzal


The world is on a brink of America's instigated wars against all countries that would not succumb to political pressure by the U. S. Empire. This "globalization of war"-doctrine is, according to Michel Chossudovsky, professor of Economics and Director of the Centre for Research on Globalization (CRG) in Montreal, Canada, the centerpiece of America's hegemonic project in order to gain world domination

American Gandhi: A.J. Muste And The History Of
Radicalism In The Twentieth Century
Book Review By Staughton Lynd and Andy Piascik


American Gandhi: A.J. Muste and the History of Radicalism in the Twentieth Century is the most comprehensive and thoroughly-researched account of the life of A.J. Muste yet to appear. It is particularly valuable in its treatment of the years that Muste devoted to building a radical labor movement, 1919 to 1936. This review limits itself to that period of Muste's life

Jhelum's Repeated Warnings
By Mohammad Ashraf


After the last year's destructive flood which reflected the River's annoyance, it has given two more warnings before it strikes in the most devastating final way!
