Rael: “It's time for a world revolution!”

LAS VEGAS, June 20 - Noting the large peaceful demonstrations taking place in major Brazilian cities, Rael, spiritual leader of the International Raelian Movement (IRM), is calling for more such protests to be held worldwide.

“It's time for a world revolution,” he declared in a statement released today by the IRM. “Not a revolution to replace the governments, but a revolution to replace the whole system!"

For Rael, who is also the founder of Paradism and the author of “Geniocracy," there is no need to launch a revolution to replace politicians currently in power.


Iceland's amazing and peaceful revolution - still not in the news

Iceland’s peaceful revolution is a stunning example of how little our media tells us about the rest of the world.
An article at WakeUpWorld says that “The Icelandic economy will outgrow the eurozone in 2012 and is set to outgrow the entire developed world on average, according to estimates.
Now Iceland is proceeding to actually prosecute some of their formerly most powerful bankers and the Icelandic special prosecutor has stated that it very well may indict some 90 people.

Upcoming Melbourne event on the debt crisis in Greece, austerity and social struggle

In the manufactured 'reality' of the mass media the problems of the Greek "debt" crisis are an endless flurry of context-less images; of riots, strikes and unrest embellished with quotes by the talking heads of capital. The IMF and capitalist economists all nod furiously in agreement that “There is No Alternative ™.” The guardians of capital insist that the loans and austerity program imposed on the Greek people by the EU/IMF are necessary to help Greece meet its debt obligations and reform their 'overly generous' pension and welfare system.

We are not outraged…

We are not outraged…

The explosion of rage we see all over the world doesn’t start from joyfully indignant citizens, respectful of the constitutional State, who can afford the luxury of non-violence… but from us, exploited proletarians, in struggle against the every time worse conditions of survival imposed on us.

We are not outraged, shocked, indignant…

End the US-led armed intervention in Libya

Akbayan (Citizens Action Party) supports the democratic opposition in Libya that seeks to end the 43-year-old dictatorship of Muammar Ghadafie. It cannot, however, support the massive armed intervention launched by the United States, France, and Britain on Sunday, March 20.

Support Middle Eastern democracy struggles! No Intervention!

No to imperialist intervention in the Libya! Saudi, UAE troops out of Bahrain!
Support Middle Eastern democracy struggles! End imperialist wars in Iraq, Afghanistan!

On March 17, 2011, the UN Security Council passed a resolution authorising military intervention by the Western imperialist powers or their puppets in Libya. The justification for this is to prevent further loss of life in fighting between forces remaining loyal Muammar Gaddafi and forces supporting the uprising that began on February 15 against his 42-year-old rule, and to support the pro-democracy forces.

Revolution in Tunisia: People power topples Ben Ali regime

Tunisian President Zine El-Abedine Ben Ali has been overthrown by a people's power uprising that has built momentum over the last 4 weeks, culminating in a large rally and protest on January 14 that was attacked by riot police. Ben Ali attempted major concessions, but they were too little and too late. After 23 years in power, Ben Ali and family fled the country to Saudi Arabia, joining former Ugandan dictator Idi Amin who was also given refuge in this middle eastern state.
