Dear WW4 REPORT Readers:

This issue marks a fourth year of bringing you cutting-edge reports from the global fronts in the War on Terrorism, as well as reviews, digests and analysis—providing news and perspectives available nowhere else. Among the stories you’ve received from us this year are:

*Raven Healing’s dissection of the role played by oil pipeline schemes in Ukrainia’s “Orange Revolution.”

*Virginia McGlone’s in-depth reportage on the horrific massacre at the Peace Community of San Jose de Apartado, Colombia; and Daniel Leal’s investigation of US chemical warfare in the Colombian rainforest.

*Yeidy Rosa’s comprehensive look at the FBI slaying of Puerto Rican revolutionary Filiberto Ojeda Rios.

*Frank Morales’ in-depth examination of the sinister career of John Negroponte, revealing the death squad campaigns in Central America 20 years ago as a “test war” for Iraq.

*Wynde Priddy’s continuing series on the geopolitics of the Darfur genocide.

*Zighen Aym’s first-hand account of the Berber struggle in Algeria.

*Sarah Ferguson’s ongoing coverage of the politics of the US anti-war movement.

*George Caffentzis’ Marxist deconstruction of the “Peak Oil” theory.

*Peter Lamborn Wilson on Vermont’s revived movement to secede from George Bush’s America.

*On-the-scene reports from Haiti by Kody Emmanuel, from Congo by Keith Harmon Snow and from Peru by Yeidy Rosa

*My own interview with the African Liberation Forces of Mauritania, regular updates on indigenous and campesino struggles in Mexico and Colombia, and reports on the democratic civil resistance in Iraq.

*Reprints of the best from our sibling publications Weekly News Update on the Americas, Toward Freedom and Upside Down World.

You depend on WW4 REPORT for:

*real journalism, not just opinion-spewing and bloggery.

*a dissident-left perspective in the spirit of Orwell, not just left-wing groupthink which is the mirror image of right-wing groupthink.

*local ethnic, historical and ecological contexts behind the headlines.

*an emphasis on the struggles of land-rooted, stateless and indigenous peoples—the “Fourth World.”

*our daily weblog, bringing our exacting annotation and wry commentary to the news from around the world—as well as important stories from the foreign or alternative press that have been overlooked by the corporate media.

If you appreciate what we do, we appeal to you to help us survive and (optimistically) grow. We ask our regular readers to give something—just what you can afford—once a year. We especially appeal to our new readers (and we know we have a lot, since we have been syndicated by Google News this year) to support us as well.

This time we are offering two premiums. First, hot off the press (thanks to our friends at Autumn Leaves Books in Ithaca, NY) is our new pamphlet, Iraq’s Civil Resistance Speaks: Interviews with the Secular Left Opposition. This includes all of the interviews we have done over the past two years with leaders of women’s and worker’s struggles in occupied Iraq, including the heroic Yanar Mohammed of the Organization of Women’s Freedom in Iraq. It also includes a new introduction by the author (me) providing an overview of Iraq’s civil resistance. This introduction is not available online or anywhere else. We are offering copies to the first ten people to donate ten dollars.

Secondly, we are offering some of the few remaining copies of my 1992 post-mortem on the George HW Bush administration, George Bush: The Super-Spy Drug-Smuggling President, covering the real stories behind the October Surprise, Contragate, the Mujahedeen war, the Panama invasion and Operation Desert Storm. We are currently working on the sequel, chronicling the even more hubristic exploits of the current administration, for Lower Manhattan’s Shadow Press. So you can be one of the few to own the complete set. The first ten people to donate twenty-five dollars will receive this fact-filled 80-page mini-book with illustrations by cartoonist Eric Drooker.

So please hurry to receive yours today! Please indicate with your donation if you wish to receive the premium. When our supply is exhausted, we will make an announcement on our weblog.
