10,000 people protested outside the Bush inauguration. From reading the mainstream media, you’d be forgiven for thinking it was just a few dozen anarchic cranks taking a day off from knitting hemp ponchos.

“Contrary to the idiot pronouncements of the corporate media, there is no ‘anti-globalisation’ movement. There is instead a massive, articulate and energetic movement for an alternative form of globalisation, a movement which is passionately committed to the cause of global justice. It is inspiring to be part of this.

It is both easy and difficult to join. First of all, you must be able to convince yourself that global justice is something to be valued more than the inducements of a privileged western lifestyle. Get past the idea that a global free market economy is the only thing that can keep a roof over your head, provide good schools and health care and throw big, big parties. It isn’t. But we all need to stop believing it is and start to move forward, dispelling the myths, exposing the lies, and developing together a new practice. Because the cost of not doing so is just too high.”

Can I offer you some angry Canadians instead? It’s more topical.

10,000 protesters gathered in Ottawa to mark the American president’s visit. Looks like quite a party. The central placard reads “LOW PRICES ARE NOT WORTH HIGH BODY COUNTS”.

It may shock regular readers to learn this, but I only saw Fahrenheit 9/11 for the first time today. Ha.

Looking for US election coverage without corporate media spin? Try Indymedia US. There’s no such thing as lack of bias in writing, but it will at least balance the Fox/Sky versions.

America, the world is waiting. Please vote with your heads and your hearts.
