Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea

by Michael Novick, Anti-Racist Action Los Angeles https://antiracist.org/between-the-devil-and-the-deep-blue-sea/ This piece was written after midnight on last Thursday. As I wrote, the election of a president had still not as yet been accomplished, even though a clear and insurmountable majority of all the votes cast for the office has been won by one of the two major candidates. The election was finally called for Biden on Saturday by the media, but Trump has refused to concede, declared himself the winner, is bringing suit over his allegations of fraud, [...]

Mumia Abu-Jamal: Disaster at the Heart of Empire

Disaster at the Heart of Empire © 2020 by Mumia Abu-Jamal, 10/14/20   As Americans slink toward the elections, a sense of disquiet haunts the land.   It's a feeling of heightened caution, the shadow of fear radiating from a proto-fascist government, one riddled with disease, the fruit not just of the coronavirus, but of unease, unwellness, a mind burdened by weight.   This must be what fascism feels like: Deep, gnawing distrust of government institutions, the scent of corruption, born of crony capitalism, where everything and [...]

Trump, GOP Stack the Supreme Court, Federal Judiciary

As we went to press, the Republican-controlled Senate ratified Trump’s third nomination to the Supreme Court, Amy Coney Barrett, a hard right religious reactionary who has opposed the Affordable Care Act, Roe v. Wade abortion rights, ruled repeatedly in favor of cops and prison guards in abuse cases, and testified that global warming is a controversial political issue. She was one of the lawyers who worked on Bush v. Gore, the Supreme Court decision that ended the Florida vote count and allowed Bush to steal the 2000 [...]

People Get Ready

People Get Ready:  There's a Bad Moon on the Rise by Michael Novick, Anti-Racist Action-LA (https://antiracist.org) As you read this, there is barely a month to election day. What are you doing to prepare for the possible outcomes and their consequences?

L.A. Sheriff’s Deputies Shot In Self-Defense (A Counter Spin)

Vote for Peace in 2020

U.S. Peace Council: "Vote for Candidates who Commit to Opposing Endless War, Runaway Military Spending, and Racial Oppression" Year after year, Congress lavishes a treasure on the Military Industrial Complex. Practically every member of Congress votes to increase this huge giveaway to war and militarism, expecting a portion of it will return to his/her state or Congressional District, thus further militarizing our economies. Earlier this month, all but 43 House Democrats joined the Republicans to pass the $740 billion defense budget in defiance of the will of [...]

Delbert Africa: Revolutionary

Delbert Africa Revolutionary! By Mumia Abu-Jamal (c) 06/19/20   He was born under the name Delbert Orr, but is known in the world as Delbert Africa, a prominent member of the MOVE Organization. In the 70s in Philadelphia he was perhaps its best known and most frequently cited member. With more years than most, he was adept at using the media to spread information and promote MOVE purposes. His country accent around Chicago and his ingenious puns made his remarks interesting and gave them journalistic value. I [...]
