Excellent analysis of the protests in Lebanon by Laith Marouf: Hear me out about Lebanon; although all the demands of the protesters are legitimate, the cascade of events that triggered them is all planned meticulously. 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 […]
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”? Remember when Eva Bartlett, Vanessa Beeley and others truly stood with Syrian people in opposing the western intervention? I do. Those who […]
Our friend Ibrahim Muhammad writes movingly below on the indomitable spirit of resilience, defiance and hope which is the hallmark of the amazing Syrian people. Please view his video and read his words: Just a small part of the #Syrian_beauty ❤️🇸🇾❤️ See the amount of joy, happiness and peace, just imagine the other picture: What if ISIS or Al Nusra or what […]
There is something that the repulsive Oliver Kamm doesn’t seem to grasp: whenever there is instigated another desperate ‘expose’ of Vanessa Beeley, Piers Robinson and the Working Group on Syria, Propaganda and Media (the latest attack focuses on the group’s David Miller and suspended Labour MP Chris Williamson) it simply proves to all of us who support their vital work, […]
A new report commissioned by the government uses anti-war activism as evidence that socialists in Britain pose an ‘extremist’ threat.
I recently sent an email to several journalists at Channel 4 News regarding their reporting of the Gilet Jaunes movement in France. I chose Channel 4 News for the very same reasons I have written about in detail previously: the programme presents itself as uniquely radical in the mainstream media, a lie that it is vitally important to expose because […]
Vanessa Beeley brings vital testimony from Syria which reveals the real story suppressed by western corporate media: During my last but one trip to #Damascus, I had the privilege of interviewing the Director of Forensics, Dr Zaher Hajjo, in Damascus. Here are just a few of the statements he gave me during our meeting. Hajjo is a genuine patriot who […]
Interview with a true Syrian patriot and heroine – Salam Alawi, President of Al Thawra basketball club, Damascus. Damascus July 2019- Meeting Salam Alawi was one of the most meaningful encounters of my whole time in Syria. A woman with a depth of compassion and kindness that outshone all of the tragedy we talked about during our short time together. […]
‘Strange days indeed’ sang John Lennon, and one can only ‘imagine’ what a man at the forefront of creating positive planetary change in his day would have made of where we are now? Because these are indeed extraordinary times in which the very foundations of everything we collectively believed to be ‘how things are’ seem to be moving beneath our […]
Sometimes we do not know when small actions could have the most momentous effects. The Archduke Franz Ferdinand loved his wife, which was most unusual for a Hapsburg. She was not of royal blood and strict protocol meant she could not appear in public ceremonies with him in Vienna. Which is why he chose to undertake a royal visit to […]
Listing the ways the state-corporate media have sought to undermine Corbyn would sound preposterous to anyone not deeply immersed in these media-constructed narratives. But almost all of us have been exposed to this kind of “brainwashing under freedom” since birth.
I am a survivor of rape, gang rape and the abusive police process I was subjected to when I reported it and I am fed up with watching sexual violence being used as a cover for political attacks on Julian Assange, ais colleagues and his supporters.
