Peace is possible! A dialogue between radical Arabs and Jews

Winter/Spring 2003

Watch the nightly news, and the prospects for peace in the Middle East seem hopeless. The Israeli State is blatantly assassinating Palestinian leaders and the right of return for Palestinians who lived decades in refugee camps is off the agenda. Meanwhile, the Iraqi people are living under U.S. occupation. But the good news is that… Read more »

Peter Hicks and Geoff Francis – Music is our weapon

Winter/Spring 2003

Peter Hicks and Geoff Francis are creative dynamos. The couple, who are both members of Socialist Alliance, live in the small rural community of Pelverata, south of Hobart.

Queer liberationists take on Bush’s war machine!

Summer/Autumn 2003

Congratulations to the Melbourne Pride March organisers for moving beyond party themes, choosing the more political “Peace through Pride.” Adopted by InterPride, the international body for Pride March organisations, this theme is a reminder that queers don’t exist in a bubble.

End the Middle East War: Mass, Democratic Anti-War Movement Needed Now!

Summer/Autumn 2003

The escalation of the military offensive in the Gulf is merely the latest phase in a dirty war. George W.

Resistance swells to stop the war at home & abroad

Summer/Autumn 2002

It didn’t take long for George W. Bush to show just who he had in mind when he declared his war on terrorism. The horrifying September 11 carnage provided U.S. authorities with an excuse not only for the murderous bombing of Afghanistan and a bully campaign against that whole region of the world, but also… Read more »

Special report from Pakistan: Working women spearhead resistance to U.S. war, religious fundamentalism and the Musharraf dictatorship

Summer/Autumn 2002

The Pentagon and its propaganda mouthpiece, CNN, would have us believe that the U.S.-led war against Afghanistan is between the “free world” and the Taliban. The U.S. government struts around as a liberator and brings out “First Lady” Laura Bush to justify the destruction of Afghanistan because of the Taliban’s horrific sexism. That the CIA… Read more »
