Pacifica Fightback Town Hall, Oct. 31 – Don’t Be Scared into Abandoning Democracy!

New Day's Pacifica Restructure - Trick or Treat? by Pacifica Fightback Why is democracy under attack at Pacifica and in the US? Is the NDP Petition a solution or part of the problem? There is a new Bylaws petition to restructure Pacifica circulating. Signing it amounts to signing away your rights to local elected representation or oversight and abolishing collective control of the Foundation’s destiny by Pacifica members. New Day Pacifica (NDP)  tried to scare people into eliminating democracy and diversity at Pacifica by raising the specter [...]

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 [...]

THE HIDDEN CRISIS IN AMERICA’S JAILS—DYING INSIDE

https://www.reuters.com/investigates/special-report/usa-jails-deaths/ “A lot of people are dying, and they've never been sentenced, and that's obviously a huge problem.” A Reuters investigation has documented thousands of in-custody death in jails, in most cases prior to trial and conviction. This should be a huge national scandal and a high-priority topic in the election, but it isn't. Here's the Justice Dept. memo in which AG Jeff Sessions ordered Trump's DOJ to stop seeking jail reform consent decrees: https://www.justice.gov/opa/press-release/file/1109621/download Watch the disturbing, graphic video… https://queso.prod.reuters.tv/rest/v2/queso/static/id/RCV8UH2/mp4 Rare scrutiny shows that deaths in [...]

Paid Public Relations, Corporate “Spin” Replacing Local News Around the US

Network of websites, print publications provide paid PR instead of local news https://www.nytimes.com/2020/10/18/technology/timpone-local-news-metric-media.html According to an expose by the New York Times, there is a fast-growing network of nearly 1,300 websites and some print publications that aim to fill a void left by vanishing local newspapers across the country. The network, found in all 50 states, is built not on traditional journalism, according to the Times. Instead, it offers propaganda ordered up by conservative think tanks, political operatives, corporate executives and public-relations professionals, a Times investigation found. [...]

Free Press in the Dock: Assange Railroad Nears Terminal

This court case is like the 'Pentagon Papers' on steroids.  And yet: Only five people (including Craig Murray) are being allowed into the public gallery at the Old Bailey. The mainstream media are suppressing details of the case and the court proceedings. The magistrate in charge is acting like a CIA agent - railroading Assange to be extradited. You will not get a clearer report of the court proceedings than in Craig Murray's online blog. https://www.craigmurray.org.uk/case  from which this report is excerpted: It is hard to believe, [...]

The Power of the People is the Force of Life

The Power of the People is the Force of Life by Michael Novick, Anti-Racist Action-LA/People Against Racist Terror (ARA-LA/PART) I was sent the following link to a piece worth reading by Henry Giroux: A searing and penetrating essay by Henry Giroux: https://truthout.org/articles/racist-violence-cant-be-separated-from-the-violence-of-neoliberal-capitalism/ Giroux is a powerful critic of fascist trends based on white supremacy and capitalism. But I don't know exactly why he often has a failure of nerve, or of something, when he draws towards solutions. For example in this piece, after the searing indictment, he [...]
