In 2002, a U.S.-backed coup against the government of Venezuela collapsed. The failure of the Bush Administration’s effort to overthrow President Chavez sent a powerful new signal about the limits of the ability of the U.S. to thwart popular democracy in the region. After the failure of the coup, a succession of Presidents were elected across South America promising to reverse the disastrous economic policies promoted by Washington in the region through the IMF for the previous twenty years, and to promote instead the economic interests of the majority. The story of this dramatic transformation has been largely untold in the U.S., in part because the freedom narrative of South America is significantly a story of freedom from U.S.-dominated institutions. But on Friday, Oliver Stone’s documentary South of the Border opens in New York. Because it’s an Oliver Stone movie, because it’s being commercially distributed, many Americans will have the opportunity to see and hear this story.

Pep Escobar recently pointed out real-time political myth-making intended to obscure the real driving force behind the threat of nuclear war in the Middle East: nuclear terrorism by the US and Israel in the name of full-spectrum dominance. Such efforts make a mockery of every word spoken on nuclear weapons by the US.

Yesterday afternoon, Alaska’s progressive bloggers responded to the growing winter crisis in the lower Yukon villages, most notably Emmonak. As word spread of the looming food and fuel crisis there, we decided to get our reporter in there, raise funds, and tell the true story of Alaska bloggers and how we help each other in the Far North.
