Christmas Truce 1914: when soldiers refused to kill

1914 truce

Christmas 1914: When rank and file imposed a truce during Imperialist War    by Henry Hagins  and John McCutcheon.

Workers.org, The “Christmas Truce of 1914” was a short-lived, unofficial lull in combat between two antagonistic rival forces, determined to exercise military, political and economic supremacy over each other in Europe and in the colonized world, to which these imperial powers lay arrogant false claim. hundredsdeadOne of the bloodiest episodes in human history, World War I was largely played out on the battle-scarred lands of France and Belgium, starting in August of 1914.

UK Activists stop Israeli arms factory

stop arming israel

We spread this social activist action report in solidarity with the struggle against all oppression – Report from London Palestine Action via RabbleLDN:

Victory to the Palestinian struggle! Stop arming Israel! #StopElbit

For nearly a month, Israel has bombarded Gaza from land, sea and air. More than 1800 Palestinians have lost their lives and war crimes have been committed. To our collective shame, the UK government has not only failed to take action to pressure Israel to stop its massacre, but has refused to take steps to end the material support it provides to Israel’s brutal regime of apartheid and colonialism. When governments support crimes against humanity, grassroots movements must take direct action.

A group of activists from the London Palestine Action network have today (5/8/14) chained the doors shut of an Israeli weapons factory based near Birmingham in the UK and are now occupying the roof. As part of the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement (BDS) and in response to calls for action from Palestinian movements, we are demanding the permanent closure of the factory and an end to all forms of military trade and cooperation with Israel.

STOP all psychotic religious/capitalist/nationalist States

Iran has never attacked another country, the US, dozens.

Iran is obviously getting the bomb, but it has never yet attacked another country.(Unlike the US which has dozens of times). Right now Iran is controlled by religious nutters, just like Israel and the partly the US, who are threatening to BOMB its 78 million diverse and  innocent people ‘into the stone age’. The people of Iran, Israel and the US should get together to smash the religious, capitalist and State institutions that threaten to burn them alive and blow their children to bits.

Pressured by the US, the UN’s atomic watchdog will say this week that  Iran is developing nuclear arms .

The maniacs who control Israeli have said again they want to bomb Iran, which is surrounded by aggressive and psychotic Nuclear States..Israel, Pakistan, India and the good old USA.

The media is packed with commercial glorification of WAR.

WHY WHY WHY??  this is MADNESS.

It seems the US financial empire is tottering, despite its efforts to boost its ‘military industry’ with multiple wars, causing

up to a million dead bodies, just in Iraq. When I googled images with the tag ‘insane war industry’ I came up instead with 1000’s of photos publicizing

wonderful electronic war games and films. THIS is just OBSCENE MANIPULATION

War is the Logic of Capital, it seems,  the modern State will stop at nothing to hold onto power, and the religious state is just a horror story.

The 1% need a new war, the infiltration, assassinations and black ops have already begun.. It remains to be seen if Obama can stop them, or if a horrific incident can be blamed on the Iranis, sweeping the way clear on a tide of nationalist hysteria.

WAR POSTPONED??

Reading lots of articles it seems to me that no country dares yet to start the Irani war.  All are playing a criminally dangerous game of ‘Chicken’ to satisfy their nationalist, capitalist and religious supporters, but not really desperate enough to take that crazy step, unless some sector jumps the gun…. LET’S HOPE That’s True..
