The environmental pressure group Extinction Rebellion (XR) has issued what it terms an “open call” to “take a stand against the fossil fuel economy”.

Western presstitutes rediscover international law after 77 years

On 24 March this year, the Financial Times editorial board printed an exceptionally revealing article headlined ‘Holding Russia to account for war crimes’.

P&O sackings: Don’t make workers pay for the capitalist crisis

Nazis on the retreat as Russian encirclement bites in Ukraine

The imperialist media are working flat out rubbishing Russia’s special military operation in Ukraine, one minute pretending to detect signs of the intervention getting bogged down and the next claiming that a rapid advance of the Russian military is multiplying civilian casualties. Judging from the few glimmers of light that penetrate the fog of war…

On 19 March, Ukrainian actor/president Volodymyr Zelensky appealed for meaningful talks with Moscow to end the war in Ukraine, saying: “This is the time to meet, otherwise Russia’s losses will be such that several generations will not recover.” This bizarre show of concern for the welfare of Russian troops aside, if Zelensky is now ready to engage…

Iniquitous new borders bill aims to make citizenship-stripping routine

Chris Mullin: Is another honest journalist about to be put behind bars?

With Julian Assange still in Belmarsh prison for dishing the dirt on US war crimes and Craig Murray now free again after his recent four month spell in Saughton prison after conviction on trumped-up charges relating to the Alex Salmond case, it’s looking increasingly like the only real home of honest journalism these days is behind bars.

Kiev junta facing defeat as Russia roots out fascist militias from Ukraine

The Russian intervention in Ukraine, depicted ludicrously by Boris Johnson as an unprovoked attack upon a democratic country, is in fact the very belated response to a slowly unfolding aggression against Russia that has been waged over three decades.
