The MAGA storming of the Capitol is two years old. The attempted coup is still happening. The reshaping of the Republican Party as an insurrectionary force and the expansion of armed gangs aim to smash democracy. Please help us to inform, to mobilize and to inspire the forces of multi-racial, radical, inclusive democracy to defeat this threat in 2023.

Re: The Ukraine Crisis Is Splitting the Peace Movement — When It’s Needed Most
 

But the policy of refusing to supply arms to either side in a conflict was in fact the official stance of the western democracies during the 1930s Spanish Civil War, one that was denounced at the time by the international left. Who on the left today thinks in retrospect that it was a good idea, or that it led to a positive outcome? And why would anyone think it would work out any better now? 

The Peace Movement of the 1960s and 1970s (and even most American pacifists at the time) didn't call for cutting off supplies of war materials to the Vietnamese during their wars against the French and American imperialists, so why are two out of the three factions of the movement now calling for cutting off supplies of war materials to the Ukrainians, something that would just lead to the same results for them as was experienced by the Spanish Republic?

Re: Who Speaks for the World When Great Powers Flex Their Muscle?
 

One might hope that "The World" might speak for itself (and most likely would do a good job with that), but it's voice is silenced by a veto from any one (or more) of the five permanent members of the Security Council.

Re: ‘Everything Has Changed Except Our Thinking’ – Ukraine Is a Wake Up Call About Today’s World
 

Perestroika (“restructuring”) was Gorbachev’s plan to radically reform the stagnant Soviet economy and democratize its politics. His proposed “new way of thinking” focused on the common problems that by the 1980s threatened the rights, health and very survival of humanity: nuclear war, environmental catastrophe, and levels of inequality and poverty that produced famine, mass migration, and violent social explosions. According to Gorbachev, new thinking meant that governments of all political persuasions needed to work together to address these problems. Political and ideological conflict­­––including between capitalism and socialism––would continue. But it had to be conducted without resort to war of any kind.

Re: Is Putin Heading Toward a Partition of Ukraine?
 

The partition outcome is the only realistic option for Ukraine, and Putin. Putin's state of mind is difficult to assess.  It could be argued that his delusions of grandeur are so extreme that he can't really process that type of logical solution, or at the very least, he is surrounded by sycophants who only tell him what they think he wants to hear.

He's already fired 8 or more of his top generals, and various inner circle "advisors" and oligarchs have been placed under house arrest, or worse.  Putin may literally not know what is actually going on in Ukraine (or mentally incapable of seeing the obvious), very similar to Hitler's state of mind in the last months of WWII.  The irony of all this is like something out of a novel, but all too real.

However, if Putin does have at least some grasp of reality, and is looking for a face saving way to get out of all this, then the partition plan makes absolute sense.  Given what Ukraine has already been through, even though they have fought with incredible courage and conviction to save their country, it is very likely the majority of Ukrainians would also go along with this plan.

To not do so actually ends up with no one really "winning" anything, even if Russia does manage to completely crush Ukraine with extreme military efforts.  Putin will have destroyed the very thing he was hoping to capture.  With the partition deal, he would at least end up with a warm water port, a real priority for Russian defense, could make a claim for "liberating" the Russia oriented populations in eastern Ukraine, and maybe a pathway for eventual economic stability might be possible.

      =====

This is mostly accurate, but it underestimates the belief among the Putin clique in the alleged unity of the "Russian" peoples (including the "Little Russians" of Ukraine and the "White Russians" of Belarus, along with the Russian speaking minorities in the Baltic lands). Putin et al might now be happy to settle for a fall back Novorossiya as Grossman suggests, but their original aim in invading Ukraine was far more ambitious and did indeed aim at turning all of Ukraine into a Belarus style vassal state. The viability of a Putin sponsored Novorossiya is also somewhat dubious after the Russian slaughter of so many Russian speakers in the process of its conquest. While the Ukrainian identity of many Russian speaking Ukrainians may have been weak before this invasion, all indications are that this Russian war at their expense has converted most of them into strongly patriotic Ukrainians.

Re: Supreme Court Decision on Wisconsin Maps Part of a Drive To Undermine Democracy
 

The best Supreme Court money can buy stays bought. Loyal to the ultra right criminals who seated them, the "Court" majority sides with the GOP and inserts itself into a state law issue to reverse an order already decided by the Wisconsin Supreme Court. Thanks to Portside for the link.

Re: The Red Scare Scarred the Left — But Couldn’t Kill It

(posting on Portside Culture)
 

I am so glad that Portside re posted this article, that Jacobin published it, and that Benjamin Balthaser wrote it.  I have thought for many years that we need a truth commission, not just to identify and come to terms with what happened, but to examine how the impact of the red scare shapes our politics today.

I'm a child of the red scare, so this has a personal aspect to it.  But as a former union organizer for over two decades, and then a journalist, I've seen and been affected by the cold war's impact over and over again.  Even some very good people more or less have said, "Let's just move on." Balthaser and people like Fred Hirsch explain why that is not enough, and why our culture and institutions are still shaped, and I would even say deeply wounded, by this history.

Our Second Revolution
 

I believe we are in a revolutionary period and don’t realize it. Although it doesn’t fit into our historic perception of revolution — such as the French, American and Russian — we’re in the early stages of a democratic one. We witnessed a reaction to it in the violent attempt to overturn the 2020 election of Joe Biden.

There are developments in society we call quantitative changes — the building of societal conflicts — that can lead to qualitative changes. Such a qualitative change was the election of Barack Obama.

It awakened us all — bad guys included — to the demographic, economic and political rumblings taking place in our beloved democracy. One bad guy voiced it when right at the outset of Obama’s election he said his “number one priority” was to prevent Obama from winning a second term. That was Mitch McConnell, then the majority leader of the Senate.

Think about that for a moment. Instead of the leader of our highest legislative body getting behind a newly-elected president — Democrat or Republican — to improve the lot of all Americans, McConnell was dedicated to Obama’s ouster from the Oval Office. He saw the handwriting on the wall, and it spelled disaster for the elite. And his comment was the keynote for neo-Nazis and racist rulers, predominantly in the South and Southwest, to turn our forward development backward.

Then along came Donald Trump. At first he was seen in political circles as a blithering idiot, but for multiple economic and political reasons his blustering took hold and he won the Republican nomination, and then, thanks to the anachronistic Electoral College, the White House. Let’s not forget, however, that Hillary Clinton garnered more than three million votes than he did.

Even though the majority of voters felt that Trump’s four years were devastating enough to deprive him of another four years, he, with the aid of the opportunistic and reactionary Republican majority in the Senate, had sown enough hate and fear among the people that neo-Nazi, racist and anti-Semitic forces flourished — culminating in the insurrection at the Capitol on January 6, 2001.

It should have been sufficient evidence that we had entered a promising, but also deadly, period in our history. Anti-democratic forces were no longer simply a disgruntled minority who express their views via the ballot box; they had taken up arms. Call it what you like, but that insurrection, together with the radical change in one of our two major political parties, and the vote-suppression actions by Republican-led legislatures throughout the country, indicate that democracy itself is on the line. Those dangerous developments are aimed at killing the non-violent but potent democratic revolution begun with the election of our first Black president.

I can't go there. My experience with organizing in communities and unions has shown me that all these attempts to avoid revolution are diversions.

Anti-Corporate Radio is Everywhere
 

It was 1969 when hope for breaking out of the confines of the three national networks was presented to a small audience at UMass Amherst. When the idea of cable TV was on absolutely no one’s radar, the speaker painted a previously unimaginable picture of small, independent exceedingly low budget cable TV outlets, offering local educational and news and arts productions sometime in the distant but foreseeable future. As I walked out, I was enchanted by the prospect of a then unthinkable democracy of choices in our strictly top-down take it or leave it world of options.

As we all know now over half a century later, people like Ted Turner figured out that a lot of money could be made presenting a cable news network to compete with the then-big boys. Of course he became a big boy and others slowly got into the act. That is not the participatory media democracy envisioned at that lecture.

Today we have a wild west of internet social media platforms where every point of view almost exclusively on the entertainment right can be accessed. As I write this I’m reminded of when I asked my friend Abbie Hoffman about the optimistic potential I saw in the prospect of more views being available, he said he wanted to know when there’d be a genuinely left wing option for viewers and listeners.

Of course we know there is none. There’s the right, far right, and the then-unimaginable extreme right which is dedicated to replacing or republican form of government with a religious nationalism. Where is the diversity of ideas?

Community radio. Despite the explosion of media itself, a thousand or more strictly for profit entertainment TV channels, the media which reaches the highest percentage of Americans is still radio.

The most recent data from Nielsen shows that 92% of the population still listens to radio every week. People all over America, urban and rural, spend a lot of time in their cars. And when they are traveling distances, radio signals come and go. Here’s where community radio comes in. There is a community station wherever you go in your car. Drivers are listeners who scan as they drive.

Community radio is a much lesser known third model of radio broadcasting in addition to commercial and public broadcasting. Traditional public stations rely on programming from NPR and other outlets. So-called public radio has become highly commercialized and dare not upset its corporate funders.

Being free from such strings, community radio has freedom and exercises it. And in the America of 2022, with a large segment of the population embracing an unprecedented assault on our republican form of government and our democracy itself, the importance of resisting is more essential than in previous history. On non-corporate community radio, listeners will hear a tremendous variety of shows, from XXXX to XXX.

Who could have ever imagined an America where crowds gather to burn books, where teachers are harassed and threatened for teaching real history. We need to take this on. Community radio depends on volunteers, people truly motivated to share news and information which other outlets feel they must avoid, given their funding sources.

So when so many of us are fed up not just with Fox but with corporate run radio, there is an alternative. Consider the change of media ownership from 1983 to 2012. In 1983, 90% of the U.S. media was owned by 50 companies and by 2012 90% of the media was owned by 6 corporate giants.

What is unique about community radio is that its board of directors are selected and elected by the local community board representatives and not appointed by any outside entity or corporate interests which makes the community radio stations all the more democratic and community based.

In this America so long relegated to Covid required isolation, chained to our computers, many of us yearn for community. Community radio is part of that. There are more and more affiliates popping up. It is about community, and there is power in that.

This event was sponsored by the founders and former leaders of US Labor Against the War (USLAW), who recently reconvened in order to encourage labor support for a peaceful resolution of the conflict in Ukraine. USLAW was organized in January 2003 to bring labor’s voice to the peace movement and the peace movement’s voice to labor in opposing the US invasion of Iraq. In the process we built strong ties of solidarity with the Iraqi labor movement. In the 15 years that followed, USLAW had as many as 200 affiliated unions, central labor councils and state federations and successfully initiated the passage of an historic resolution by the AFL-CIO in 2005 that for the first time stated AFL-CIO opposition to an ongoing U.S. war and called for rapid withdrawal of all U.S. forces from Iraq.

Speakers include:

  • Elise Bryant, President, Coalition of Labor Union Women (moderator)
  • Phyllis Bennis, Institute of Policy Studies
  • Bill Fletcher, Jr., trade unionist, writer, media commentator, and a past president of TransAfrica Forum
  • Sara Nelson, International President, Association of Flight Attendants-CWA
  • Captain Dennis Tajer, Commercial Airline Pilot, Allied Pilots Association member and veteran of the US Gulf War, Desert Storm in Kuwait and Iraq
  • Carl Rosen, President, United Electrical Radio & Machine Workers of America (UE)

The 90 minute video begins with a five minute slide show. After brief panel member presentations, the speakers respond to questions posed by participants.

A Resource Bank has been created to make available copies of labor statements and resolutions, links to this video and the slide show, and other resources useful to labor activists in carrying out their labor antiwar organizing.

It is available at https://bit.ly/Labor-Ukraine-webinar-resources

It will be updated as new materials become available, so check back periodically.

The slideshow was produced by SolidarityINFOService, a news and meme service that publishes a twice-weekly news bulletin with links to articles, reports, videos, podcasts and other resources about the Russian war in Ukraine, a variety of other foreign 'hot spots', the war against workers in the US, developments in our movement, the pandemic, US foreign policy and militarism, and the climate challenge.

Solidarity with Prof Walden Bello in the face of attack

We are writing to you on an issue of urgent concern regarding Professor Walden Bello.

 

Recently, a political party founded by Sara Duterte (daughter of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte), incumbent Mayor of Davao City, and now vice-presidential candidate for the 2022 national elections—unfoundedly and maliciously labeled Walden as a “narco-politician.”

This attack is clearly intended to silence dissent and undermine free speech. This is not unprecedented under the Duterte regime. Anyone who dares to speak truth to power and criticize the administration and its allies are harassed, or worse, killed. As defenders of human rights and democracy, it is imperative that we speak out against this politically-motivated attack against Walden.

We invite you to sign on this statement of support for our comrade Walden Bello amidst the political harassment he is facing anew in the context of the Philippine elections.

 
Please take a moment to look at the full statement for more details about the incident, and for endorsing the statement.

Let us stand together against all forms of harassment through political labeling/tagging!

 

The deadline for sign-ons is Friday, 08 April 2022. The statement will be published the day after.

Thank you,  Focus on the Global South
