knee-jerk self-interest, despite the military draft. Ethan Young examines why opposition
is so much quieter now than in the Â60s and Â70s.

With the riots in the deprived outer suburbs of Paris we are witnessing a return
to a time when the fault line ran between the people of no property and the propertied

activity adds to the crisis, writes Steve McGiffen, as African migrants have become
scapegoats for the problems of the EU's mismanaged and increasingly deregulated
U.S. ACTIVISTS STORM CIA AIRLINE
Patrick OÂNeil tells what happened when activists tried to deliver an indictment
to Aero Contractors, the North Carolina company that provides pilots for corporate
jets the Central Intelligence Agency used for "extraordinary rendition."
