Re: Fast Food Workers in 236 Cities Pull Off Largest Strikes Yet as Other Low-Wage Workers Join Fight

Worker's get the respect they deserve, when they flex a bit of muscle. Good job bro!

These are all great initiatives. Other people can support these actions as consumers by boycotting McDonald's and Wal-mart  so long as they refuse to pay $15 minimum wage. I have purchased nothing from either company for years as they are the worst employers in the world. It should be noted that workers in other parts of the world are also striking for higher wages, notably in Bangladesh and in China.

Time to push back!

Please read whatever you can find about the TPP; it's truly awful and our government is attempting to fast-track it with minimal or no debate.

I'm convinced. (I was always leaning against, of course). The Trans Pacific Partnership is a colossal power grab by corporations. This is an exceptionally bad deal. I oppose Fast track for TPP (in which the exceptionally secret treaty would be voted on with the [no] power to amend it ). I suggest you oppose it as well. We should ask each and every politician from candidates for dog catcher to president to do the same. Thanks to Wikileaks for the leak of the otherwise secret treaty terms, to David Korten for explaining it and to Portside for the link.

Re: How Hillary Clinton's State Department Sold Fracking to the World

There have also been rumors that people tied to her are actually invested in the Keystone XL pipeline in some way...I tried last year to find out if this was true...the comments ceased almost immediately so I don't know if the sources were good...but i do not have the ability to find out.

My 'fellow Americans': Obama did this as well. So, ask yourself this... are you going to vote for Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, or Marco Rubio? Ben Carson? And ask yourself this: Are they going to do anything different? Short of a revolution, all this amounts to is bitching. Which I can understand. But change means yelling and being at the capitol of each state with signs. It's the capitalist system which needs to be changed, especially as it concerns the concentration of power among the wealthy.

I've said it before and I'll say it again - Given the lunatic alternative I'll support her. But, in reality, Hillary is just another Bill Clinton "New Democrat" (read #CorporateWhore), handpicked by Wall Street to continue the goal of turning AMERICA into #AmerikaInc.. Obama has done some great things, for sure, but he also falls into the category of "New Democrat." Penny Pritzger comes to mind, as does his secret negotiations on the TPP (AKA "NAFTA on steroids!").

I just was made aware of another particularly good quote in addition to this on Portside:

    "She's on the horizon," Galeano once wrote of utopia. "I go two steps, she moves two steps away. I walk ten steps and the horizon runs ten steps ahead. No matter how much I walk, I'll never reach her. What good is utopia? That's what: it's good for walking."

First-Hand Experience of CIA Infiltration Among U.S. Students

Neier's wrongly names his book review, "When the Student Movement Was a CIA Front": The National Student Association was not a movement. It was an association of campus politicians, many of whom were in training or aspiring to become politicians after graduation. SNCC, SDS, the DuBois Clubs and others of our contemporaries were in fact a student movement and, as such, targeted by the CIA and its brethren in spookdom.

I had an email exchange with Karen Paget, the author of Patriotic Betrayal, the book Neier reviews. The gist of what I wrote her follows:

This is an excellent book with much new information. But however well-researched the work is, it is somewhat incomplete. For two years during the period Paget write about, I was president of SLATE, the student political party at UC Berkeley. My closest friend and roommate at Cal was Dan Greenson, whom SLATE had elected to be the NSA rep at UC.  NSA President Dick Rettig stayed at our house on a couple of occasions. SLATE helped give rise to a number of other campus political parties, including VOICE at Ann Arbor. We (SLATE) hosted a summer retreat of these groups in 1960, and Tom Hayden (also with Al Haber) of VOICE stayed with us. Even back then, we had questions about NSA and the CIA.  In 1961, Herb Mills (then a Cal grad student who, after getting his PhD, went to work on the San Francisco waterfront and became leader of the longshore local there) and I went to Madison to the NSA conference on behalf of SLATE. At that time we raised the CIA issue.

Later that year, I moved to New York where I became head of the US Festival Committee that put together the 450-member US contingent to the World Youth Festival in Helsinki. I met with Gloria Steinem who was organizing the counter-festival group on behalf of the CIA, as was clear to me at the time and as I said so to Gloria. After  Helsinki, I returned to Berkeley where in 1963 the DuBois Clubs helped organize the beginnings of the movement against the Vietnam War while JFK was still President and sending "advisors". Later I was a contributor to Ramparts at the time of its NSA/CIA expose.

All of this to say that there were some of us who knew the essential outlines of Patriotic Betrayal while it was going on and said so. Our voices were ignored at the time not so much because we were prescient as that we were the precise targets of the CIA, FBI and local Red Squads. I hope Patriotic Betrayal gets a wide readership 50 years after the period it studies. But for a dime - the cost of a phone call back then - I could have told you its basic conclusion. Whatever our experiences were would not have significantly changed what Paget wrote, but the voices of the targets of CIA spying would have  provided a fuller picture.

Re: When the Student Movement Was a CIA Front

To some of you oldtimers, this story is certainly not new. I think that this is the second time I posted a review of this book on the connection between the CIA and the National Students Association (the "other NSA"). I remember when some of these events were taking place, including the CP-organized international youth festival in Helsinki, Finland, in 1962. Some of my comrades in YPSL attended, funded by the CIA.

Some of you who may be reading this I think had connections with the other NSA at the time. I'd like to hear your comments.

Good piece. I think he's a little too worried about small business becoming medium-sized business. But there's a deeper discussion about that. In China, there's a cell of the CCP in every private business--openly, secretly or in between, to keep things from going too far awry. But the coop law is clearly based on Mondragon, and I think will serve Cuba well. The worse option is to do nothing and stagnate.

Re: Unpaid Russian Workers Unite in Protest Against Putin

Such concern for workers by the NYT is touching!

Thomas Sodders

     ====

I am surprised to see Portside reprint this piece from the NYT, part of an on-going anti-Russian campaign to justify the attempt of the EU to pull the Ukraine out of the Russian sphere. It contains the same old, tiresome demonization of President Vladimir Putin, as if he makes every economic decision in this huge country.

The sum of wage arrears the Times notes, about $60 million, represents the wages of about 10,000 workers in an economy with 70 million workers. Unpaid wages is a long-standing problem in Russia, where, by law, employers must pay laid off workers 100% of their wages for 3 months. So, if orders are down, companies often keep workers, even though they don't have the revenue to pay them.

This is especially true in the state sector, which is chronically cashed starved from an inability to collect taxes. Under the USSR, workers did not pay taxes. The government took its share up front. It has been very hard to make the metamorphosis, especially since social services declined with the collapse, with the seizure of the economy by the Oligarchs.

As it is, the problem is a fraction of what it was 20 years ago, when millions of workers regularly went unpaid, sometimes a third of the labor force.

The Times chose to publicize this problem, just when it is near solution, despite the blows to the economy by the drop in oil prices and the western embargo.

In the US hundreds of thousands of workers get laid off every month, even in relatively "good" times, like now.

Data for these comments came from "The New Russia: A Handbook of Economic and Political Developments" by Ian Jeffries

Native Americans live in an apartheid system, and Blacks and many Latinos live in a semi apartheid system. To be fair, each of these groups should receive reparations, and whatever the bill comes to it is payable. It won't happen until the white power structure is decimated. It is for that reason the system is desperately trying to consolidate their rule with all these Draconian laws and police tactics. There is more, but I despise writing long winded posts.

African-Americans deserve reparations. So do Native-Americans. So do the descendants of people who came here as "indentured servants," (read "slaves") from Ireland, England, Scotland and China. So do the children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren of Japanese citizens interned in camps during WW2.

By the time we add up all of the people who deserve - really do deserve - reparations for having been screwed over by the US government and corporations, it becomes obvious that what is really needed is full-scale total revolution. Not violent revolution like the right-wing nut-balls are always calling for, but complete and permanent deep and lasting structural changes in the way both economic resources and political power are distributed in this country. And yes, as a matter of fact, it IS time, well beyond time, in fact, for a radical redistribution of wealth.

The usual suspects who are constantly harping about how wealth redistribution is un-American, blah blah blah, are the picture of hypocrisy. What they oppose is not the redistribution of wealth per se, but the DOWNWARD redistribution of it. We've all been the witnesses of forty consistent years of radical UPWARD redistribution of wealth since Mr. Reagan moved into the White House, and I, for one, am crying foul. It is time to turn things around. Certainly for African Americans. And for the entire American working class soon to follow.

Re: Hipsters for Charter Schools: The Big Lie "Togetherness" Tells About Race and Education

"If "Togetherness" showed the slightest shred of self-awareness, we might interpret this subplot as a radical critique of the worst elements of the charter school movement: its hollow rhetoric and pedagogical vacuity, its appeal to narrow self-interest, the way it divides communities and the way the state has embraced all of it uncritically for political (financial) ends.

Instead, it's clear that the Duplass brothers and their characters are speaking completely un-ironically and obliviously about all their (now cliche,) white privilege and entitlement and, yes, racism and classism in defining what constitutes "good" for them. With HBO's endorsement, they believe (hope) that they are speaking for and to an affluent white audience who are rooting for these characters.

Michelle Pierson's narcissistic appeal on behalf of the Eagle Rock Charter reveals her entire world view - that she and her kids ARE "the community" - and much of the charter school movement depends on that view.

Like everything else, art plays out on a socio-economic battlefield. You may not watch "Togetherness," but people who shape the culture and economy do.

And the viewpoints depicted in the show trickle down Colorado Blvd. to L.A'.s District 5 school board race and join the debate throughout the rest of the country."

Minimum Wage and the Wealth of the Waltons

The Wealth of 6 Waltons Exceeds the Wealth of Over 91 million Americans -- by Laura Clawson for Daily Kos, 8 Dec 2011

Sylvia Allegretto, a labor economist at the University of California Berkeley Center on Wage and Employment Dynamics, dug into the 2007 Survey of Consumer Finances, then compared those numbers to the net worth of the six (6) members of the Walton clan -- all children or children-in-law of the founders of Walmart-- as reported on the Forbes 400 list in 2007. Their total net worth that year: $69.7 billion. That is equal to the wealth of the bottom 30 percent of all Americans ...

Think on that: Just six (6) people. As much wealth as 30 percent of all the people. In 2007, the population of the United States was 302.2 million people, meaning that six people had as much wealth as 90.7 million Americans. This is not talking about the top 1 percent. This is about the top .00000002 percent.

he gap has worsened since 2007. The 2011 Forbes 400 has the inherited worth of these same six Waltons at $93 billion, showing further widening of the wealth gap given that corporate profits, stocks and CEO pay have all recovered while housing values & equity (the lion's share of wealth for average Americans), wages and family incomes have actually declined

Walden Bello Discusses BRICS, the Rise of China and the Future of Global Power - New York - April 27
 

Walden Bello, one of the Left's foremost intellectuals discusses the rise of china and the future of global power.

The global balance of power is shifting. There is much debate as to whether the rising BRICS countries-Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa-are capable of challenging the West's dominance. At the same time, at least one of these countries-China-has established itself as a new great power. What does China's rise mean for its neighbors and for the global balance of power?

Join us for an evening with veteran Filipino campaigner and intellectual Walden Bello to consider whether China and the BRICS can offer an alternative to neoliberal globalization or just more business-as-usual.

Join us to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam Peace Movement on May 1-2 in Washington, DC. As war continues to be a clear and present danger to our democracy, we gather to reflect and renew our commitments.

View the full event program and schedule [PDF]

Hundreds of us will come to the New York Avenue Presbyterian Church, a meeting place and staging area for the huge anti-war mobilizations of the late 60s and early 70s.  Leaders and activists from the struggle to end the Vietnam War will join with young justice-fighters to reflect on the mass movement of 50 years ago and to deepen the links for the challenges we face today. The conference will include honoring the elders of our movement on Friday evening; a commemorative walk past the Vietnam Veterans Memorial to the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial on Saturday afternoon; plenaries, mini-plenaries, workshops and breakout groups for sharing analyses, lessons, remembrances and aspirations, and learning about the war's continuing legacies; and songs, poetry, artwork and celebration. Let's turn the experiences of yesterday into a call for action for today. Register for the conference and commemorative walk today! https://www.eventbrite.com/e/vietnam-the-power-of-protest-telling-the-tr...

This effort began last fall in reaction to the Pentagon's plans for their own commemoration, including extensive public outreach and a false and one-sided website history of the Vietnam War that excluded the peace movement. The New York Times reported our objections on its front page.  While former presidents and Pentagon officials seek to obscure the memory of what we accomplished, we will keep pushing for an accurate history of both the Vietnam War and one of our country's most important social movements.

Join Tom Hayden, Ron Dellums, Luis Rodriguez, Cora Weiss, Rosalio Munoz, Gerald Horne, Holly Near, Dan Ellsberg, Julian Bond, Marge Tabankin, Peter Yarrow and many, many others on May 1-2. You will want to be at this historic gathering

In Defense of the Public Square - Washington, DC - May 1 - 2
 


 

May 1-2, 2015
Intercultural Center Auditorium
Georgetown University

The Kalmanovitz Initiative for Labor and the Working Poor is pleased to host In Defense of the Public Square on May 1-2, 2015, at Georgetown University.

A robust and vibrant public square is an essential foundation of democracy. It is the place where the important public issues of the day are subject to free and open debate, and our ideas of what is in the public interest take shape. It is the ground upon which communities and associations are organized to advocate for policies which promote that public interest. It is the site for the provision of essential public goods, from education and health care to safety and mass transportation. It is the terrain upon which the centralizing and homogenizing power of both the state and the market are checked and balanced. It is the economic arena with the means to control the market's tendencies toward polarizing economic inequality and cycles of boom and bust. It is the site of economic opportunity for historically excluded groups such as African-Americans and Latinos.

And yet in America today, the public square is under extraordinary attack. A flood of unregulated, unaccountable money in our politics and media threatens to drown public debate and ravage our civic life, overwhelming authentic conceptions of the public interest. Decades of growing economic inequality menaces the very public institutions with the capacity to promote greater economic and social equality. Unprecedented efforts to privatize essential public goods and public services are underway. Teachers, nurses and other public servants who deliver those public goods are the object of vilification from the political right, and their rights in the workplace are in danger. Legislative and judicial efforts designed to eviscerate public sector unions are ongoing.

In response to these developments, a consortium of seven organizations - the Albert Shanker Institute, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), the American Prospect, Dissent Magazine, the Kalmanovitz Initiative for Labor and the Working Poor of Georgetown University, and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) - has organized this conference. It will bring together prominent elected officials, public intellectuals and union, business and civil rights leaders "in defense of the public square."
