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, [...]

By Winnie Byanyima Executive Director, Oxfam International The combined wealth of the richest 1 percent will overtake that of the other 99 percent of people next year unless the current trend of rising inequality is checked, Oxfam warned the annual World Economic Forum prior to its meeting in Davos, Switzerland January 21-24, 2015. The explosion in inequality is holding back the fight against global poverty at a time when 1 in 9 people do not have enough to eat and more than a billion people still live [...]

Lady Lynn Rothschild thinks We must save capitalism!

By Paul Krehbiel Oxfam's recent report documenting increasing world-wide inequality and calling on world leaders to reverse this inequality is extremely important.  Oxfam's seven point plan is very good and deserves widespread publicity and support.  Unfortunately, a significant number of world leaders that Oxfam is appealing to are very wealthy individuals with ties to the giant corporations and financial institutions of global capitalism -- the economic forces that have caused and fueled growing inequality.  Oxfam's appeal to these leaders is a worthy effort, but fraught with difficulty.  [...]

Jerry Brown Allows Frackers to Pollute Our Drinking Water

by Lauren Steiner In February of this year, the Associated Press reported that California's Department of Oil and Gas and Geothermal Regulation (DOGGR) had authorized oil companies to inject toxic fracking wastewater into aquifers that may be used as a source of drinking water or irrigation 2500 times. DOGGR officials admitted that they had erred saying they were confused about aquifer or oil field boundaries or they misinterpreted water safety requirements. Yet they have only shut down 23 of those wells. 46% of these 2500 wells were [...]

Poetry Corner: The Price of Doing Business

by Mark Lipman ATTENTION, Walmart Shoppers: Somewhere in  the swollen bowels of some dank and dimly lit offshore sweatshop maybe in China, or Vietnam, or Bangladesh the lights are being turned out in a young girl's eyes as she frantically stitches her childhood away one 12-hour shift at a time without sunlight or bathroom breaks or a proper education for pennies a day. Itís just Good Business. It helps the bottom line, when there are no labor laws, or health requirements, or pesky regulations to get in [...]

Which Way Forward for the Movement Against Police Terror?

by Michael Novick, Anti-Racist Action-Los Angeles The state response to the tremendous, ongoing upsurge sparked by the outrage of the Black people of Ferguson MO to the police killing of Michael Brown, magnified nationally by the #BlackLivesMatter movement, amplified by unrest and protests in New York, Los Angeles, the Oakland/SF Bay Area, Minnesota, Cleveland, Baltimore, and numerous other cities, is now clear.

No to the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and Fast-Track (TPA)

by Judy Burch 600 multinational corporations drafted the TPP, giving themselves whatever they wanted. It's their power grab to bury democracy. It affects policy on many levels and covers issues unrelated to trade including fracking, food safety, healthcare, local sovereignty and the environment.  It's crucial Congress maintain its authority to oversee trade policy.  That means a thumbs down on this deal! TPP would elevate corporations to the level of nations, allowing companies to sue governments in private trade tribunals over laws that corporations allege reduce their profits [...]
