Three of the eight authors of the “Clean Break” document became key policy makers to the Bush-Cheney Gang. Leading that pack was the super hawkish Richard Perle, a current member of the Pentagon’s Defense Policy Board.

Reporting from the FTAA

The writers dedicate this coverage to Jordan Feder, the wonderful Towson/Baltimore/New Jersey activist who passed away from meningitis early on the morning of Wednesday, Nov. 26 after travelling to the protests in Miami. Jordan was a good friend and leader, who went to Miami to help others and lost his own life on the way home. For more information, please see the memorial website, Miami Herald, or Towson Towerlight.

Baltimore reports from the anti-FTAA protests in Miami:

"This week, Nov 17-21, international trade ministers will be in Miami, FL for a round of negotiations on the pending Free Trade of the Americas (FTAA). My first exploration into downtown Miami was a drive to the Independent Media Center (IMC), twenty five blocks away from ground zero of where demonstrations in opposition to the FTAA are to occur on Thursday November 20.

Anarchists Against the FTAA()!.” The march ‘snaked’ over to Biscayne Blvd then headed south until bicycle and riot cops blocked the path at 13th and Bayshore. From there, the marchers headed west, where a long stand-off occurred at 14th Street and 1st Avenue NW..." From Puppets to Rubber Bullets: Baltimore IMC reports on the...

"We noticed people moving toward the line of police, and several groups of people changing into black clothing. One person walked briskly toward the police line with a small black flag on a long thin pole. Soon, a crowd had positioned themselves in front of the police line. We noted several bright green hats in the crowd, indicating that legal observers were present. Given the strength of the police line, two deep or deeper, we expected a long stand-off. Within five minutes, our expectations were proved wrong as we obeserved people running from the police line and puffs of white smoke that were attributed to discharges of rubber bullets or bean-bags..."
