Get The Tories Out! Vote Labour! Here’s Why:

This is an appeal from the heart to all those with a vote in tomorrow’s general election.

Ben Griffin – a few words:This is the first Remembrance Sunday in four years that I won’t be at the Cenotaph with Veterans For Peace UK, because I’m in Beirut.

Since 2017, the Empire and its local enforcers, Apartheid Israel and Saudi Occupied Arabia, wanted the government of PM Hariri to collapse, therefore bringing down the […]

In Defense of Cory Morningstar & “Manufacturing for Consent”

Good investigative journalism doesn’t only reveal hidden mechanisms of our time;  it also exposes those who refuse to confront the mechanisms. Remember when the late Bruce Dixon courageously and cogently called Bernie Sanders “a sheep dog candidate”?
