Today marks the tenth anniversary of the Seattle WTO protests. Here are some news articles about this anniversary from Common Dreams, People's History Project, and Seattle Indymedia. Back in 1999 Jello Biafra made a record with Krist Novoselic (Nirvana), Kim Thayil (Soundgarden), and Gina Mainwal under the name The NO W.T.O. Combo for a one-off protest concert.
We are selling both the CD and LP of "Live From the Battle in Seattle" for $6.

The impetus for this death match came from this page, which features a 404-Not-Found Chomsky piece & a lot of other info about the issue.
Catch ya on Tuesday!
"US President Barack Obama has shelved plans for controversial bases in Poland and the Czech Republic in a major overhaul of missile defence in Europe."
That said, there's the not-so-good news, but at least it's not part of the Star Wars never-ever-worked missile defense boondoggle.
"Although the White House said the US "no longer planned to move forward" with the old shield scheme for Poland and the Czech Republic, Defence Secretary Robert Gates stressed the US was not abandoning missile defence of Europe.
From a 2001 New York Times opinion piece about the holiday:
...Most of us have trouble hearing the 'labor' in Labor Day any longer -- the use of the word, that is, that distinguishes labor from management or worker from capitalist. The very radicalism of devoting a day to the honoring of labor's role in the creation of national wealth has been lost to the waning of both union power and a proud sense of class distinction. Laborers have been redefined as 'consumers,' a category that somehow muddies everything.
But in its time the idea behind Labor Day was genuinely radical, as radical in its own way as the origin of Independence Day. As Ms. Litwicki observes, one of the critical steps in the evolution of Labor Day was balancing the class defiance, even the potential violence, of some forms of trade unionism with the patriotism and the conciliatory spirit of others. What resulted, when it became a legal holiday in 1894, was a version of Labor Day that managed to celebrate business and industry as well as the unions. It also made room at the front of the parade for politicians, who had been excluded from the original Labor Days. It became a holiday that honored sociability more than solidarity."

"The former Republican vice presidential candidate posted her thoughts Friday on Facebook.
Palin says in the America she knows, people won't have to "stand in front of Obama's 'death panel" so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their 'level of productivity in society,' whether they are worthy of healthcare."
She says such a system is "downright evil.""
