Venezuela's revolution - giving power to the poor

VENEZUELA: ``We, and millions of people around the world ... believe
another world is possible, a world free from war, poverty and hunger.
Here in Venezuela the [government of socialist President Hugo Chavez]
along with the majority of the people in our country are fighting hard
to build this new world, despite the attempts of the old elite and the
US government to prevent us from succeeding.'' This is what 25-year-old
university student Germania Fernandez told Pablo Navarrete said.

Chain up Cheney! Free David Hicks!

On February 16, ABC News featured the US military prosecutor Colonel
Morris Davis vilifying Adelaide father of two David Hicks as a war
criminal. Davis would not specify when Hicks would be brought before a
military tribunal of the type that was ruled illegal by the US Supreme
Court last June but reinstituted by Congress a few months later.

Editorial: Break the Australia-US alliance!
Our Common Cause: Cheney is not welcome!
