European Constitution

I haven't really been following this issue, but apparently the French people voted "no" to the European constitution. Though the media has at times tried to portray the "no" forces as representing the xenophobic right, in fact the majority of votes against the proposed undemocratic constitution were from the left, and they were voting to oppose the further encroachment of neoliberalism on European life (and voting against the wishes and active campaigning of bureaucrats, big business, conservatives, liberals, and social democrats all). See posts at Feral Scholar, Direland, and Lenin's Tomb for more it is put on the last site, it is "the best May the [French] left has had since 1968."
