Open Borders for Capital to Import Labor from Central America

by Michael Novick, Anti-Racist Action-LA As David Bacon reported in Truthout recently, the Biden Administration is paying US agribusiness to import temporary workers -- essentially braceros -- to toil for brief periods in the fields in the US before being sent back to their countries of origin, mainly in Central America. This program  drives down wages for all farmworkers, and then subsidizes not only the farm owners but even the middle-men, legalized [...]

Joe Biden, Learn the Names of the Children You Are Killing

Open Letter to the President: Learn the Names of the Children You Are Killing by Norman Solomon [excerpts] To: President Joe Biden You’ve often spoken of how much you care about children and how terrible it is when they’re murdered. “Too many schools, too many everyday places have become killing fields,” you said at the White House last spring on the one-year anniversary of the school shooting in Uvalde.

Mumia Abu-Jamal: The Quest for Abolition

© 2023 by Mumia Abu-Jamal How do we arrive at this place we call abolition? What are the roads to such a destination?  We arrive from the almost-lost lessons of history, shaped by generations of ancestors who struggled their whole lives for that rare breath of freedom and yearned with all their hearts that we, their progeny, would one day breathe free air. For abolition stems from the long, hard struggle against [...]

Virginia Prisons Defy New State Law Against Solitary Confinement

by Kevin “Rashid” Johnson There was much fanfare about a new Virginia law that went into effect on March 23, 2023 that set specific limits on the use of solitary confinement in Virginia prisons.(1) Long before this law was enacted, VA prison officials and politicians had been lying to the public claiming solitary confinement no longer existed in their prisons.

Letter to the Editors: Social Security Cuts

Dear Editor, In 2023, the annual Cost of Living adjustment for Social Security was an increase of 8.7% . But it's 5.5% less in 2024!  In 2024, the actual C of L adjustment this year is only 3.2% (that's barely 1/3 of the increase last year). For instance, for my mother’s SS monthly benefit for 2024, that means a  $681.60 monthly loss. Representing less purchasing power, more hardship all around for tight [...]

War Against the Fleas

© 2023 by Mumia Abu-Jamal Perhaps Israel’s most respected statesman, former diplomat, Abba Eban, once said, “Nobody does Israel any service by proclaiming its right to exist.” That was then, in 1981. The now is a new age, a new era. A time of Israel’s swing to the far right wing. It is once again a time of war, but to say it’s a war of Hamas versus Israel is somewhat disingenuous. [...]

by Medea Benjamin and Nicolas J. S. Davies While Secretary of State Anthony Blinken has been frantically shuttling around the Middle East trying to stop the Israeli con b flict in Gaza from exploding into a regional war, the United States has also sent two aircraft carrier strike groups, a Marine Expeditionary Unit and 1,200 extra troops to the Middle East as a “deterrent.” In plain language, the United States is threatening [...]

Fascists in Power: USAmerican Unexceptionalism

by Michael Novick, Anti-Racist Action-LA A world-wide trend toward authoritarianism has been widely noted. Neo-fascist parties have taken the reins of power or serve as part of the parliamentary base or ruling coalition in Israel, Italy, Sweden, Hungary, Poland, and Ukraine, among other countries. But the pundits who lament this, and perhaps see Donald Trump as reflecting the same trend in the US, are somehow incapable of seeing that the US is [...]
