Iran-Iraq-US crisis

A global wave of opposition to the US imperialism’s latest act of terror and aggression washed through Iraq and throughout the Middle East, around Europe and in many cities in North America on January 4 and 5. Commission 4 of the ILPS salutes this staunch response and encourages more action to show solidarity for just peace and deter an outbreak of global or regional war in response. We applaud the Iraq government’s resolution to get US forces out of Iraq as we do NATO’s decision to suspend the NATO mission led by Canadian forces in Iraq.

Latin America solidarity

I am active in just peace activism and anti-imperialist solidarity. One way I partake in this kind of activity is through my Just Peace Committee and its role in a local Venezuela solidarity committee.

I attended a huge conference for Latin American solidarity with the people against coup attempts, right wing resurgences, state repression, unjustified economic sanctions that hurt the people, militarization and the threat of military invasions. OUt of that conference came a declaration of solidarity against US-led imperialism and pledges to support particular struggles of people in Latin America and the Caribbean regions.

taking stock of 2019

Just passed another birthday and the calendar year is closing. Time to review the year.

I always review my goals and see what I accomplished or changed. I refer to both short (1-year and 5-year) and long term (10 years).

What's more, I consider a few categories of life: finances, career, social, travel, health, activism.

FINANCES

I've had a steady income from self-employment and employment, working generally part-time, with a few relatively high-income months. My savings have remained frozen this year.

The coup in Bolivia: Five lessons
THE Bolivian tragedy eloquently offers us lessons that our peoples and popular social and political forces must learn and record in our consciousness forever.

Armistice Day

Statement of Commission 4 of the International League of Peoples’ Struggles (ILPS) for Armistice Day, November 11, 2019

BUILD THE MOVEMENT FOR JUST PEACE!

Over 100 years since the conclusion of World War One, and war is still a constant, major problem for humanity. The International League of Peoples’ Struggles (ILPS; ilps.info) supports the just struggles of the peoples for national liberation, genuine democracy and a decent standard of living. We condemn militarization, bigotry and wars of aggression and counter-revolution.

Keep Australia Out of U.S. wars – Time for Australia’s independence from U.S.A.

On Thursday evening 4 July, America’s Independence Day, 80 people attended a lively public forum in Melbourne calling on the Australian government to keep Australia out of U.S. wars and declaring that it is time for Australia to be independent of the U.S.A. 

The meeting, organised by IPAN-Victoria, heard from 3 engaging and informative speakers who drew on the impacts of U.S. bases, marines and political influence on Australia's sovereignty.

Just Peace-Earth Day msg

So sorry for not posting since January. There has been a technical problem, which I have passed on to my service provider, Vistaprint.ca. It seems to be a problem accessing the blog on my site through certain browsers. At last I am able to post once again. I'll catch up!

Since late January, I have been involved in a peace effort to prevent a war with or military intervention into Venezuela owing to US and right-wing schemes to demean, misrepresent, wreck and overtake the current Bolivarian government of President Maduro.

‘Resistance’ Media Side With Trump to Promote Coup in Venezuela

Alan MacLeod


 We like to think we have an adversarial media—one that will stand up, in particular, to Donald Trump. The media assured us that they would perform their crucial democratic role in holding this dangerous new president and commander-in-chief accountable at every turn. This struck a chord with the public; in the wake of Trump’s victory in 2016, theNew York Timesadded over aquarter-million digital subscribers

Just Peace- Venezuela President

Recopied here is an article from the new "Just Peace Newsbulletin" of January 2019.

RESPECT THE VENEZUELAN ELECTIONS AND DEMOCRATIC PROCESS
In Venezuela on May 22, 2018, Nicolas Maduro was re-elected with almost 68% of the votes. On January 15, 2019, the inauguration of the second term of his presidency was held. His party represents the Bolivarian movement to raise living standards for workers and the poor, provide more public services, and regionalize and nationalize economic activities.
