Cdn Peace Alliance: March 20, 2004 marks o­ne full year since the start of the war o­n Iraq. Since then, thousands of innocent Iraqis have been killed, no weapons of mass destruction have been found, and democracy is nowhere in sight in "liberated" Iraq. Everything the anti-war movement said last year has been proven correct. Now, o­ne year later, the anti-war movement is back to say "The World STILL Says No to War"!

Star Wars revisited PDF Print E-mail

From the Montreal Gazette, "Ever since its genesis in the 1980s under the popular nickname Star Wars, the missile defence shield proposed by the U.S. has been bedeviled by objections both political and technical. To judge by the thinking in the federal cabinet and at the Canadian Department of National Defence, Canada will participate in the project more or less because it would be too much trouble not to."

Bush seeks funds boost for NASA PDF Print E-mail

There is a lot going on in Space right now. Pure science like the Mars Rover programs and pure politics like China's entry into manned space flight. Mixing science and politics we have a revamped Star Wars program in the US with Canada and Australia indicating they're ready to play along. Now we have a HUGE budget proposed to put folk back on the Moon and fund the first footprints on Mars. I love this techi-space stuff but I'm highly suspicious of all this money starting to slosh around for "peaceful scientific exploration" while there is an incredible spill-over of money and technology into the militarization of Space. I think China's entry into the era of human space flight has re-energized the US view of space as a strategic military objective since the launch of Sputnik stunned the psyche of Americans during the "duck and cover" times of the cold war.

US munitions manufacturers can not handle the demand. "The U.S. military's only plant making small-arms ammunition is running at near capacity, 4 million rounds a day, and the United States still is forced to look overseas and to the recreational industry for ammunition for troops in Afghanistan and Iraq and those training to deploy there soon."

The Troubled Marriage of Environmentalists and Oil Companies PDF Print E-mail
Justice News
Monday, 12 January 2004 15:32
CorpWatch.org: The American environmental group Conservation International (CI) and other environmental organizations are actively collaborating with oil corporations in hopes of ameliorating the impact of their activities o­n local ecosystems. But observers fear that the cozy relationship that these groups have with the US government and oil companies raises serious questions regarding their independence and warn that it can undermine the grassroots work of popular movements and native peoples that aim to stop new oil drilling altogether. They also hold that it raises some serious issues regarding national sovereignty in the Global South.
