Text of interview with David Kay PDF Print E-mail
Justice News
Monday, 26 January 2004 01:43
This is an astonishing interview. Not o­nly does Kay say that Iraq did not
have WMD at the time of the invasion last year but that the UN inspections
in the mid-1990s were a success. So much for the Bush/Blair lie that maybe
they were destroyed at the last minute or smuggles into Syria. Moreover,
note that Kay says he is quitting now because he expects the next Iraqi
regime to be as un-cooperative as the previous o­ne. [Reuters]

America's Empire of Bases PDF Print E-mail

By Chalmers Johnson

As distinct from other peoples, most Americans do not recognize -- or do not want to recognize -- that the United States dominates the world through its military power. Due to government secrecy, our citizens are often ignorant of the fact that our garrisons encircle the planet. This vast network of American bases o­n every continent except Antarctica actually constitutes a new form of empire -- an empire of bases with its own geography not likely to be taught in any high school geography class. Without grasping the dimensions of this globe-girdling Baseworld, o­ne can't begin to understand the size and nature of our imperial aspirations or the degree to which a new kind of militarism is undermining our constitutional order.

Managing Activism: PR Advice for "Neutralizing" Democracy PDF Print E-mail

Book Review by John Stauber

When I first picked up Denise Deegan's book, Managing Activism: A Guide to Dealing with Activists and Pressure Groups, I imagined a roomful of uniformed pest applicators at the Orkin company, sitting o­n benches like military aviators before a bombing mission, being briefed o­n the best tools available for eradicating cockroaches. I was a spy for the roaches--the pesty "activists" that Deegan works to "manage." Roaches don't generally read the "how to" manuals written by their would-be exterminators, but activists certainly should.

Justice News
Saturday, 24 January 2004 17:05
Ottawa? Canada?s leading conservation organizations are asking New Brunswick legislators to reject a proposal to drastically increase logging rates and weaken environmental protection measures in New Brunswick?s public forests. These warnings are being given by national conservation groups in response to the o­ngoing deliberations of a Select Committee of the New Brunswick Legislature. The Committee is currently developing recommendations after the completion of public hearings o­n a proposal put forth by six major forest companies licensed to log New Brunswick?s 3.3 million hectares of public forest. An industry and government sponsored consultant?s report has asked that the provincial government roll-back environmental protection measures, greatly increase tax-payer subsidies to the forest industry, and double the amount of softwood harvested from Crown lands by the year 2050.
