Responsible New York Banking

Stephen Lendman | Located about an hour south of Buffalo, the Bank of Cattaraugus is the state's smallest bank with one location and eight employees. It doesn't base loans on credit scores. Knowing community needs well, it operates supportively to help.

Working cooperatively with responsible community banks like B of C and non-profit credit unions, establishing public banks across America is vital at a time of financialized power, casino capitalism, depression-sized unemployment, socialized losses, privatized profits, and Wall Street crooks operating an unprecedented money making racket.

Medical Self Defense & the Black Panther Party --An interview w/ Alondra Nelson

Angola 3 News | Alondra Nelson, a professor of sociology and gender studies at Columbia University, is the author of a new book released last month, entitled Body and Soul: The Black Panther Party and the Fight Against Medical Discrimination. Nelson writes that “the Party’s focus on health care was both practical and ideological.” On a practical level, the BPP provided free community health care services, including preventative education. Simultaneously, the BPP railed against the medical-industrial complex, declaring that health care was “a right and not a privilege.” By 1970, People’s Free Medical Clinics had become a requirement for every BPP chapter. In 1972, the BPP revised point six of the founding ten-point-platform, adding a demand for “completely free healthcare for all black and oppressed people." more...  0 Comments
