EDITORIAL:
The Lies of Mr. Powell

Does anyone out there still think that the United
States really thinks that Saddam Hussein has nuclear,
biological or chemical weapons in his
possession? Does anyone out there still think that
these alleged weapons
pose a threat to the US?

Real Direct Action Tactics, Please Step Forward!
By Anne Bacon

Through the streets, amidst rumbling drums, and
hoarsely shouted chants and
songs, banners were pulled taut as people scurried
under and around them,
peering back over their shoulders to read what was
printed on the front.
There were more than 100,000 people, carrying as many
intentions as signs,
who had come to San Francisco on January 18 to lend
their presence to a
budding antiwar movement.

INTERNATIONAL:

The Latin American Turn to the Left: The Progressive
Side of World Polarization since Sept. 11th
By Gina Alvarez

The projected US war against Iraq, the conflict in the
Middle East, and, to some extent, the Palestinian
peoples’ fight have partially obscured other important
events in the international class struggle. Other
important recent conflicts in Central and South Asia
(the mobilizations in Pakistan against the US, the
potential outbreak of war between India and Pakistan,
etc.) have had an essentially reactionary character,
reflecting an increase in the ideologically regressive
forces of fundamentalism, both Islamic and Hindu.

On the other hand, the large mass struggles in
Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Mexico,
the revival of the mass movement in El Salvador, the
recent general strike in Uruguay, the massive
mobilizations in Peru against the privatization of
water and the struggles that continue in other Latin
American countries have a character that indicate fast
approaching pre-revolutionary situations.

Korea in the Crosshairs
By Jesse A. Powell

While the US is engulfed in a controversy with Europe
about their planned invasion of Iraq, another crisis
is unfolding as a consequence of the US government’s
reckless policies: a possible nuclear confrontation
with North Korea. Last October, the US government made
public statements that the floundering, decaying
Stalinist regime of North Korea has resumed its
nuclear program in violation of a 1994 “agreement” to
get rid of them and allow international inspectors to
monitor the abandonment of nuclear weapons.

CAMPAIGNING AGAINST THE WAR:
U.S. Unions Opposing the War Against Iraq
By Gina Alvarez

The US media is constantly trying to minimize and
demonize the antiwar movement, presenting it as an
exclusively youngish, new age movement, mainly led by
‘communists’ or essentially marginal elements of
society.

This, of course, is false. The 300,000-strong
demonstration last January 18 was an eloquent denial
of this assertion. Left wing organizations, human
rights groups, mainstream environmental organizations,
layers of the Democratic and Republican Parties,
Greens, religious groups, peace organizations,
community groups, the city councils of 97 cities and
towns and even some newspapers are part of this
growing opposition to Bush's war plans.

NO WAR FOR EMPIRE: A Long Term Strategy for the
Antiwar Movement
By Sebastian Robles

“America has no empire to extend …”
-George W. Bush, June 2002
“[America] has no territorial ambitions. We don't seek
an empire.”
-George W. Bush, November 2002

US President George W. Bush’s assurances
notwithstanding, the global antiwar movement has
managed to delay the US’ imperial plans to attack and
occupy Iraq for over a year and widened the
differences among various imperialist countries, a
major tactical victory. Now the question is how to
keep this tactical victory from being co-opted by
imperialist rivalries and thus transformed into
defeat, and how to advance to the real solution to
war, poverty, desperation, terrorism ...How to secure
the strategic victory of workers and youth.

SAN FRANCISCO POLITICS:

Matt 4 Mayor
By Abel Mouton

Being a politician comes with certain
responsibilities. It is not the same thing as being an
administrator, although administrative and
organizational skills can be helpful. No, first and
foremost, being a politician is about recognizing the
interests of your constituency and representing those
interests, even when it is hard. Frontlines is in the
habit of judging politicians by what class they
represent.
