Over the last few weeks, a new movement has emerged to oppose the war preparations of the U.S. government. Since September 11, there have been over 200 major antiwar actions in 40 countries around the world.
On September 29, tens of thousands of people joined in a national day of protest in the U.S. More than 10,00 people demonstrated in downtown Washington D.C., and another 10,000 turned out for a rally and march in San Francisco's Delores Park. Thousands of people also marched in Los Angeles, Denver, Chicago, New York, and many other cities.
In these actions, speakers unequivocally denounced terrorism in all its forms and demanded that the U.S. government refrain from aggressive military action. They demanded that the U.S. adhere to the rule of international law in order to bring the criminals who attacked the World Trade Center to justice. The slogan "No War!" echoed all across the country. In addition, these actions condemned the government's arbitrary attacks on immigrants and warned against the growing assault on civil liberties.
A week earlier, on September 20, tens of thousands of students and staff on more than 140 U.S. campuses in 36 states organized marches, rallies, teach-ins and other anti-war actions. On this national day of action, 4,000 people in Miami joined in peace forums on two separate campuses, 3,000 people turned out for the rally in Portland, Oregon, over 1,000 students and staff at Berkeley held an anti-war march, etc. The next day over 5,000 people in New York City turned out for an anti-war march from Union Square to Times Square.
Not only in the U.S., but around the world, huge anti-war actions are taking place. Almost every day, demonstrations are being organized throughout Europe, Asia, Latin America and the Middle-East. On September 27th, in Naples, Italy, over 30,000 people turned out for a massive anti-war rally and march that targeted the growing threat of war from U.S. and NATO military forces. In Athens, Greece, over 8,000 people demonstrated on September 28th. Another 5,000 turned out for an anti-war rally in the Netherlands. Large rallies have also been organized in England, Canada, Ireland, Australia and many other countries. People at these events opposed the U.S. military buildup and called upon world leaders to act rationally and in accordance with international laws and standards.
In addition to these largescale demonstrations, thousands of meetings, discussions and other actions have been organized on the campuses, in the communities and at the workplaces, in small cities and towns, etc. Already millions of Americans have come into the public arena to oppose the government's war preparations. In these activities, people are denouncing the chauvinism of the U.S. government which gives itself the right to dictate the affairs of other countries, to judge others and attack them. People are denouncing the state-sponsored terrorism of the U.S. government and exposing continuing U.S. aggression in Iraq, in Palestine, Yugoslavia, Colombia and elsewhere.
This anti-war movement can only grow stronger and stronger.

From the flick overhype department:
Jelangkung seram? Tidak begitu. Jelangkung bagus? Tidak begitu. Yaa nonton ajalah dalam semangat mendukung film Indonesia. Itupun kalo rela ngantri dari jam 8.30 demi menunggu loket buka 11.30, ditingkahi oleh asap rokok dan kebudayaan antri Indonesia yang buruk.
Terima kasih Anda telah mengunjungi www.bemo.or.id, Maaf, guna menghindari hal-hal yang tidak diinginkan untuk sementara waktu mereka tidak dapat hadir di hadapan Anda.

Ada yang minat nyari Oom Osama Bin Laden? Harganya naik terus lho. Setelah ditempeli label harga US$ 5 juta, sekarang ditambah lagi US$ 2 juta, bonus dari Airline Pilots Association and the Air Transport Association. Investasi yang menguntungkan tuh. Tangkep sekarang, piara dulu sampe kira-kira US$ 10 juta, baru kasih ke Amerika...
From the great business opportunity department:
Dari WIRED 9.11 : "... namely a sector known as electronics manufacturing services, or EMS, which assembles things like PCs and consumer gadgets for [big brands]. ... Why own and operate your own factory, he argues, when you can give the dirty work to us, and save money? It's taken a while, but the marketplace is finally listening. Flextronics has grown from $93 million in revenues in 1993 to about $15 billion this year."

From the fatal computer-illiteracy department:
Soal VCD Itenas-Unpad Bandung yang menghebohkan itu, dari TEMPO: "[Pemeran pria] lantas menyewa tukang transfer di sebuah rental komputer di Bandung. Ia menyerahkan pita rekaman ke seorang karyawan rental di situ. Selama proses transfer, ia mematikan layar monitor agar karyawan itu tak melihat isinya. Usai proses pemindahan, file film yang terekam komputer juga dihapusnya. Setelah yakin semuanya aman, barulah [pemeran pria] meninggalkan rental itu. Beres? Ternyata urusan jadi panjang. Rupanya [pemeran pria] ceroboh. Bagaimanapun, setiap file yang dihapus akan terkumpul di recycle bin (tempat sampah) komputer. Dari tempat inilah file tersebut kembali dilacak dan digandakan oleh karyawan rental di atas."
