A Boarder Riddled With Bullets

Posted by Jack Stephens on April 27, 2007

XicanoPwr writes about the recent deaths of Latino immigrants on the U.S.-Mexico boarder in the blog Para Justicia y Libertad:

Self-defense from what? This type of behavior seems to be normal, recently Agent Nicholas Corbett was charged with first-degree murder of Francisco Dominguez-Rivera, of Puebla, Mexico, who was unarmed at the border in January. Corbett was also charged with second-degree murder, manslaughter and negligent homicide. His excuse – he claimed he “feared for his life,” however, Corbett’s account didn’t match witness testimony or forensic evidence.

The Other 9/11

Posted by Jack Stephens on April 27, 2007

AN, of The Socialist Unity Blog, remembers the other 9/11:

The precise role of the US government is unknown, but certainly the coup had the blessing of President Nixon, and his National Security Advisor, Henry Kissinger. In 2003, General Colin Powell, at that time US Secretary of State admitted that the US government had played a role in the coup, telling Black Entertainment TV channel, “With respect to your earlier comments about Chile in the 1970s and what happened with Mr. Allende, it is not a part of American history that we’re proud of.”
