The free weekly direct action newsheet published in Brighton since 1994 - Copyleft - Information for Action


Our mates at Corporate Watch have a done a  book, snappily entitled “Targeting Israeli Apartheid: A Boycott Divestment and Sanctions Handbook” - an exhaustive rundown of who’s who in the Israeli economy , encouraging campaigners to take direct action against the British companies complicit in Israeli apartheid, militarism and colonisation. (yes, real research, not just Wikipedia hacking like us!)

The book begins by examining the Israeli economy, industry by industry, and suggesting where the movement should focus its campaigning energy in order to be most effective (sneek peek: Barclays are a top target!). Part two contains five in-depth geographical case studies. The final section looks at how campaigners can bring the fight home to the UK (and there’s also a few cartoons).

For more details, or to obtain a review copy of the book please contact Tom Anderson, tel: 02074260005, email: contact@corporatewatch.org, www.corporatewatch.org.

It is not a Jewish eprblom, it is a American eprblom. Sadly, we, the American people, lost any real influence within our country long ago. We can vote, for what it is worth, but it really doesn't mean much. It has been a long time since the American vote really had anything to do with the direction our country takes, foreign policy or otherwise. Against the insidious wiles of foreign influence (I conjure you to believe me,fellow-citizens,) the jealousy of a free people ought to be constantly awake;since history and experience prove, that foreign influence is one of the mostbaneful foes of Republican Government. But that jealousy, to be useful,must be impartial; else it becomes the instrument of the very influence to beavoided, instead of a defence against it. Excessive partiality for one foreignnation, and excessive dislike of another, cause those whom they actuate tosee danger only on one side, and serve to veil and even second the arts ofinfluence on the other. Real patriots, who may resist the intrigues of thefavorite, are liable to become suspected and odious; while its tools anddupes usurp the applause and confidence of the people, to surrender their interests.
