Pete Seeger in East Berlin, 1967

Victor Grossman The Volunteer (Abraham Lincoln Brigade Archives -ALBA)
Pete Seeger, folk singer and activist for peace, civil rights, labor rights and the environment, left us just two years ago - January 27, 2014. Recently, Seeger's FBI file has been released. Included in the file is Pete's correspondence with Victor Grossman. The Editors of The Volunteer, founded by the Veterans of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade, asked Grossman if he had any recollections of Pete's visit to East Berlin in 1967. Here's his story.

The Entire Labor Movement Should Be Paying Attention to Wisconsin’s Kohler Strike

Joe Burns In These Times
The Kohler plant has a history of intense battles, including a 1934 strike which resulted in the formation of a company union. After the workers abandoned company unionism for the UAW, one of the longest strikes in U.S. history commenced in 1954. Every time these battles are lost, it sends message that unions can’t defend their members and the union movement is dead. Conversely, when workers win these fights, confidence in labor grows and organizing becomes a bit easier.

Message from the Moderators to Our Portside Culture Readers

Portside
Last year also saw the launch of Portside Culture, with reviews, news and analysis on the arts and letters. The service Portside provides is in greater demand. Thousands are discovering that there is a Left in the US, and our daily posts help give a sense of its real scope. We turn for you to help because as we grow, so do our financial needs. We will continue, but to measure up to a re- charged and re-vitalized movement, your contributions will make all the difference.

Yesterday's Fund Appeal Error Was a Glitch, But Our Appeal Is Real

Portside
Maybe you tried to contribute to Portside yesterday, and our website didn't cooperate. Yes, for a short time it was impossible. Not because we don't really want and need your support, but because some security we implemented to counter a cyberattack didn't work properly. If you tried to contribute and succeeded: Great, and thank you! If you tried and failed, please try again. And if you haven't tried yet ... here's why we're asking.
