A message from Muammar Gaddafi:

 
 
 
“People of the world!

 
The enemy is on the run.

They are in fear of a resistance movement they can neither see nor predict.

We now choose when, where, and how to strike. And as our ancestors ignited the first flame of civilization, we will now redefine the word “conquest.”

Today we write a new chapter in the arts of urban warfare.

We do not require arms or fighters for we have plenty.

We ask you to form a worldwide front against war and NATO. A front that is governed by the wise. A front that will bring reform and order and new institutions that would replace the now corrupt.

People of the world!

These words come to you from those who struggle to survive under NATO’s massive criminal bombardments.

 
Our plight is not covered by Western corporate media.

 
We are simple people who chose principles over fear.

 
We have suffered crimes and sanctions, mass murder and looting, which we consider the true weapons of mass destruction.

 
We have endured weeks and months of agony and despair, while the condemned UN traded with our oil revenues in the name of ‘protecting civilians’.
 
Over 60,000 innocents have died while waiting for a light at the end of a tunnel that has no end, save for the colonization of our country and the theft of our resources.

 
After the crimes of the administrations of France and Britain in Libya, we have chosen our future.
It is the future of every resistance struggle in the history of humankind.

 
It is our duty as well as our right to fight back against the forces of colonization and to hold their nations morally and economically responsible for what their elected governments have destroyed and stolen from our land.

 
We have not crossed the oceans and seas to occupy Britain or France. Nor are we responsible for Europe’s economic crisis, which they attempt to ease through theft of our sovereign wealth.
 
These criminals have tried to conceal their true plans for the control and monopoly of the energy resources of the world, in the presence of the threat of an expanding power in China and a strong unified Africa.

 
It is ironic that the Libyans are to bear the full burden of this immense and ever-deepening conflict on behalf of the rest of this sleeping world!
 
We do not require arms or fighters for we have plenty.

 
We ask you to form a worldwide front against war and NATO. A front that is governed by the wise. A front that will bring reform and order and new institutions that would replace the now corrupt.

 
Stop dealing with France, the USA, Britain, Qatar and the UAE. Reduce or halt your consumption of their products and propaganda. Put an end to them before they destroy the entire world.
Educate those in doubt of the true nature of this conflict.

 
Do not believe their corporate media lies.
 
Casualties of their special forces on the ground and their Libyan puppets are far higher than they admit. We only wish we had more cameras to show the world their true defeat. The enemy is on the run. They are in fear of a resistance movement they can neither see nor predict.
 
We now choose when, where, and how to strike. And as our ancestors ignited the first flame of civilization, we will now redefine the word “conquest.”
 
Today we write a new chapter in the arts of urban warfare.

Know that by helping the Libyan people you are helping yourselves, for tomorrow may bring the same destruction to you. This conflict is not a localized war.

 
Helping the Libyan people does not mean making new deals and contracts with France, the USA, Britain, Qatar and the UAE.

 
Isolate them.

 
Neither can the world remain hostage to their control of the UN to cover their crimes and theft.

 
We will trap them here in Libya to drain their resources, manpower and their will to fight.

 
We will make them spend as much as they have stolen, if not more.

 
We will disrupt, then halt the flow of our pillaged oil, thus rendering their strategies obsolete.

 
The sooner a global revolutionary movement is born, the sooner their fall.
 
To NATO soldiers we say, “Go back to your homes, families, and loved ones. This is not your war. Nor are you fighting for a true cause in Libya,”

And to Sarkozy and Cameron, we say, you bring it on, as have we, like never expected.

Have you another challenge before your end?”
 
The Green Star  points towards the Global Revolution Alliance as just such a worldwide front,one we participate in and endorse 100%!

Mérida, Venzuela 

A multitude of Venezuelan social movements marched in Caracas yesterday in support of the Great Patriotic Pole, a grassroots coalition of forces that support the re-election of Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez and the continued advance of the Bolivarian Revolution.

 

The movements also offered proposals toward how the Great Patriotic Pole (GPP) could be best organised to achieve its strategic goals and “revolutionary unity”.

Orlando Zambrano, representative of the Ezequiel Zamora National Campesino Front, stated that the national mobilisation was “to support president Hugo Chavez, the Bolivarian Revolution…and the construction of the Great Patriotic Pole.”

He continued by explaining that the Pole is a mechanism “to construct a platform of struggle, that allows us [to] continue advancing in the fundamental tasks of our Bolivarian Revolution and popular participation, generating…the transformation of Venezuelan society”.

Tribute to Che Guevara

HAVANA, Cuba  

Latin America paid on Saturday many tributes to Commander Ernesto Che Guevara, on the occasion of the 44th anniversary of his assassination in the Bolivian town of La Higuera.

In Argentina, Juan Martin Guevara, brother of the Heroic Guerrilla, and Jorge Lamadrid, Cuba’s ambassador to that nation, participated in a round table on the influence of Che’s ideas in the generation of the 1970’s, the Prensa Latina news agency reported.
   The meeting was held at the former Higher Mechanics School of the Navy, today the Espacio para la Memoria Institute.
   Later, the film”Che, a New Man,” directed by Tristan Bauer, the winner of a prize at the Montreal Film Festival in 2010, was shown on a giant open-air screen.
   Meanwhile, members of the diplomatic, medical and educational missions and social workers from Cuba and Venezuela, who are offering their services to the democratic and cultural Revolution led by President Evo Morales, participated in Bolivia in a meeting to mark the historic date.
   The report adds that hundreds of people traveled to La Higuera to get to know historic places, like the replica of the small school where Che Guevara was assassinated.
   Participants in the meeting toured the Señor de Malta Hospital –where the body of the Argentinean physician was washed and shown in 1967- and visited the grave where Tamara Bunke –the only woman that was a member of Guevara’s revolutionary exploit in that Latin American nation- was initially buried.
   For its part, the “Eugenio Espejo” Territorial Committee of the Alianza Pais Ecuadorian Movement, main organization of that political group, paid tribute to Che, adds the news agency.
   The tribute was part of the Workshop of Tools for Citizen Participation and Good Living Conditions, to which Cuba’s ambassador to Ecuador, Jorge Rodriguez, was invited to speak about the validity of Guevara’s thinking.
   Rodriguez reflected on the importance of studying Che’s revolutionary ideas, as a basic tool to carry out the processes of change taking place in Latin America.
   Also, the Russian Committee in Solidarity with the Cause of the Five Heroes of Cuba -condemned in the US for fighting terrorism-, the Cuba Friendship Association in Russia, and the Venceremos Movement, attended the flying on the outskirts of Moscow of an aerostat with the image of Che and a slogan that demands justice for Gerardo Hernandez, Ramon Labañino, Fernando Gonzalez, Antonio Guerrero and Rene Gonzalez.
