The UN's Mission in Haiti Consists of Terrorism and Military Occupation

Haiti remains the dent in imperialism's white-supremacist shining armour.

Don't Mistake Montreal's Mayor For a Friend of Haiti

Coca-Cola Canada has come out this week accusing the City of Ottawa of unfairly targeting its products in the city's campaign to promote healthy living. By crafting this attack on the city's healthy lifestyle campaign, Coca-Cola, has shifted the heart of the discussion away from evaluating the nutritional content of fizzy sugary water to the city government's intrusion on the rights and liberties of its citizens.
