International ANSWER = Workers World Party
Today a press conference was held by International ANSWER. They are planning a massive anti-Israel, anti-US and anti-capitalism rally in DC on Aug. 12th. Ramsey Clark, the former attorney general for LBJ, is the spokesperson for ANSWER. He has defended such tyrants as Slobodan Milosovic and Saddam Hussein in their trials for war crimes. Clark is the founder of the International Action Center, which is an umbrella organization for ANSWER. The IAC urges members to "stand with the Palestinian and Lebanese resistance." If this isn't siding with the enemy, I don't know what is. ANSWER is essentially a front group for the Workers World Party. Brian Becker is the key link in the chain. Becker is a director of ANSWER and often speaks at "anti-war" rallies. He is also a member of the Secretariat of the WWP. LA Weekly published a great expose on the "anti-war" movement in 2002, which details the transparent nexus between Becker, ANSWER and the WWP. The article notes that, "The WWP advocates socialist revolution and abolishing private property... and it hails North Korean dictator Kim Jung Il for preserving his country's socialist system and 'from falling under the sway of the international banks and corporations that dictate to most of the world." Read what the WWP has to say about communist states like Cuba and Venezuela in their latest publication. Not exactly the "anti-war" movement the mainstream media tells us about. So before you show up at the Aug. 12 rally and protest against Israel and the Iraq war, think about who you are standing alongside: communist totalitarians who support some of the worst dictators and human rights abusers in history.
