JusticeLA Fights Jail Expansion Plan

JusticeLA Fights Jail Expansion Plan Crucial June 11 Petition Deadline for Ballot Measure By Jason David, White People 4 Black Lives [Excerpts] https://justicelanow.org/op-ed-justicela-fights-la-countys-jail-expansion-plan/ The LA County Board of Supervisors has approved a jail expansion plan that will cost an estimated $3.5 billion. That is an extraordinary amount of money to waste on the caging of human beings, especially when we can invest those resources into providing greater access to affordable housing, jobs, health care, public education, and healthy food — critical elements that serve human needs and [...]

Primero de Mayo – May 1 – International Workers Day

Celebrate International Workers Day                    (note: Spanish translation follows) by the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) In 1886, the American Federation of Labor adopted a resolution that a full workday would be no more than 8 hours, in response to agitation by socialists, communists and anarchists. General strikes for this demand sprung up across the country. In Chicago, the center of the 8-hour movement, 400,000 striking workers with banners in many languages brought the city to a standstill [...]

Legislation Against Police Murders

NEW CA LAW AIMS TO CUT POLICE KILLINGS By Rob Macon, KPFK Local Station Board member According to California lawmakers, 162 people in the state were fatally shot by police last year.

Asian American Perspective on January 20 Women’s March L.A.

Women’s March 2018: An Asian American Commentary on Building Unity by David Monkawa, Progressive Asian Network for Action The LA Woman’s March Inc. turned out an impressive 750,000 people! It was inspirational and I was proud of being in a contingent of about 110 people initiated by the “Nikkei Progressives.” (Nikkei means the Japanese diaspora, such as immigrants in the US and their descendants.) The ethnic composition of the group was about 60% Nikkei, the rest bi-racial Asian, Chinese, Korean, Filipino and other non-Asian people. We contacted [...]

The Missing Message in the Women’s March

The Missing Message in the Women’s March By Cindy Sheehan & Rick Sterling  https://resumen-english.org/2018/01/the-missing-message-in-the-womens-march/ Editors of Resumen LatinoAmericano: The large women’s marches that took place in the US to mark a year of the Trump Administration were primarily organized by elements of the Democratic Party. The energy in the streets was strong and positive but the political message was to channel that into Dems winning back congress in the 2018 mid term elections. The Democrats are every bit a party of continuous war as are the Republicans. [...]

Letter to the Editor: Enough! with “Ultra-Leftism”

Dear Editor: I’ve been tempted to write more than once before, but your “Editorial Commentary” graphic in the January issue moves me finally to say Enough! with what I would call ultra-leftism in the current epoch. If at this late date, a year into President Trump, the editors of Change-Links do not see that there is indeed some “difference between Democrats and Republicans,” then you and I are truly inhabiting different planets. The Democrats are not perfect. They are collectively far from perfect. But we would be [...]

Stolen Election – FRAUD!

Election Stolen Again by David Troy Stolen before, yes. Skull and bones Papa B. Brazen George, backed by his father's CIA and the US military, strongmanned over anyone with oil under them. Enter from stage rear trap door – Another stolen election. With another strong man. But this strong man wants more than oil. He may tread on many in the US-the wrong color, religion, or who knows, because he changes his mind a lot. He was installed by his own and other corporate and .01% money. [...]

THE PROBLEM WITH THE PARTY — THE BIG NEO-LIBERAL LIE

THE PROBLEM WITH THE PARTY — THE BIG NEO-LIBERAL LIE By Charles Fredricks “The floggings will continue until morale improves,” has always been the Democratic Party leadership’s response whenever a challenge from the Left is met with defeat by the Right. Today, using Bernie as a prop, new Senate minority leader Schumer admits the Party needs to change its message (but not its actions, if electing Schumer over Bernie is any indication). The media are full of Monday morning quarterbacks, offering a list of excuses or reasons [...]

The Election Was Stolen – Here’s How

The Election was Stolen - Here's How by Greg Palast https://www.gregpalast.com/election-stolen-heres/ Before a single vote was cast, the election was fixed by GOP and Trump operatives. Starting in 2013 - just as the Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act - a coterie of Trump operatives, under the direction of Kris Kobach, Kansas Secretary of State, created a system to purge 1.1 million Americans of color from the voter rolls of GOP-controlled states. The system, called Crosscheck, is detailed in my Rolling Stone report, "The GOP's Stealth [...]
