Armistice Day

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

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.

Just Peace-Indigenous Rights

The development of pipelines for transporting petroleum and natural gas have been stirring up relations with indigenous communities for decades. There are struggles over two pipelines in my region, British Columbia/ unceded lands of Coast Salish Territories. One is the expansion of the Transmountain pipeline and marine terminal to send bitumen from the Alberta tarsands to the Port of Vancouver and the other is the addition of a gas pipeline from the Peace River region of Northeast B.C. to the Port of Kitimat.

Just Peace-Review of 2018

Time to sum up the year, I guess. I did review my short- and long-term goals in the fall, finding myself mostly on track and arriving at the decisions I had wanted to make by then. I have made some adjustments to the goals regarding financial planning.

I am feeling good—refreshed after a break and very positive from assessing my present situation.

Christmas Holiday

First, let me talk about my holiday. I took the plunge, splurged and did a Mayan Riviera resort stay. My first time in Mexico and on an all-inclusive holiday package at a big resort.

Just Peace-November

November begins the reflective year-end time for me. My birthday in mid-December is approaching and soon after that the conclusion of the calendar year. It is a reflective period for me--a time to assess what I have been doing and where I'm heading. I am gearing up to do that and review and reset my goals.

In this part of the world, the weather gets dark, cold and rainy in November. It can be downright gloomy. Like other people, I usually feel blue in November.

The autumn and winter of this region is not like the rainy seasons of the tropics or deserts; rather, heavy rain commences and goes on and on for weeks.

just peace-people's remembrance

A People's Remembrance

[Words and action prepared for the Remembrance Day weekend--Oppose empire and sacrifice for empire. Build the mass movement for just peace and oppose the imperialist system.]

Remember all the victims, civilian and military, and affirm opposition to wars of aggression, militarization, militarism and repression. Honour those who have given their lives for justice, too. Pledge to unite to build a movement for just and lasting peace by exposing and standing up together to the global system that is the primary root cause of much violence and death.
