ICP, 30th June 2016 The Communist Party, Turkey (KP) released an interview on its weekly newspaper Boyun Eğme, with Iraklis Tsavdaridis, Executive Secretary of the World Peace Council (WPC) on the upcoming NATO summit. You can find the interview below: Boyun Eğme:The NATO summit will take on 8-9 July in Warsaw and is a matter of concern for the WPC,more than ever.What are your thoughts in this regard and do you think this summit is adding new threats to peace and to the peoples of the world? Iraklis Tsavdaridis:The WPC is historically the only international peace structure which is opposing NATO strongly and by principle. NATO  was and still is the armed tool of imperialism. It was never founded for the defense and it has always been offensive, supporting fundamentalist regimes, plotti…


In Gaza,Fall, 2015 by Eva Bartlett

This page will continue to expand as more so-called “Human Rights” groups are outed for propagating anti-Syria war rhetoric and false allegations against the Syrian government and Syrian Arab Army.  As it is, the list of players is quite extensive.  Below, I’ll list the known HR front people and groups (many, if not most, with links to the US State Department and criminals like George Soros). As Rick Sterling wrote in his “Humanitarians for War on Syria” (March 2015): “A massive campaign in support of foreign intervention against Syria is underway. The goal is to prepare the public for a “No Fly Zone” enforced by US and other military powers. This is how the invasion of Iraq began. This is how the public was prepared for the US/NATO air attack on Libya.
The results of western ‘regime change’ in Iraq and Libya have been disastrous. Both actions have dramatically reduced the security, health,…

Richard Moser: Clinton and Trump, Fear and Fascism, June 30, 2016

JUNE 30, 2016

We live in an age of consequences; intended and unintended; environmental and political. If we are to avoid, or at least blunt, the worst of what is to come, then we must look to the root of our problems and to our own roots for solutions. Fear is the main enemy. Fear will paralyze us and perpetuate the system. That is why fear is the machines’ strongest weapon. Given the unprecedented disgrace of the primary election and the pitiful weakness of both Trump and Clinton as candidates, we are likely to experience a fear-mongering crusade without parallel in American electoral history. People get ready, because fear is all they have left. But take heart. History has not come to an end. Its almost as if there is a moral order to the universe: as if karmic forces are putting us hard to our lessons; as if “for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap,” is the new and true law of life. Those who vote Clinton to fight Trump (or even Fascism) cannot escape the consequences o…

Maastricht and All That

A lot of people throughout Europe have suddenly realised that they know hardly anything about the Maastricht Treaty while rightly sensing that it could make a huge difference to their lives. Their legitimate anxiety has provoked Jacques Delors to make a statement to the effect that the views of ordinary people should in future be more sensitively consulted. He might have thought of that before. Although I support the move towards political integration in Europe, I think that the Maastricht proposals as they stand are seriously defective, and also that public discussion of them has been curiously impoverished. With a Danish rejection, a near-miss in France, and the very existence of the ERM in question after the depredations by currency markets, it is a good moment to take stock. The central idea of the Maastricht Treaty is that the EC countries should move towar…
