Urs Eignemann | Discovering the Bible in the Bible, the kerygma or proclamation of Jesus, is vital to disarm the literalists. Literalism can repress mystery, uncertainty, diversity, engagement and interdependence..The threatening two-thirds society is the product of a neoliberal deregulation policy of all social areas in the service of anonymous capital. A re-regulation policy oriented in the well-being of the weak and their integration must counter the inclusion-exclusion dynamic and cancel the income- and assets redistribution from the bottom to the top. more... 2 Comments

acornista | Reclaim the debate! Resist the G8! In July 2006, the G8 will hold its annual Summit in St.Petersburg, Russia. Vladimir Putin says he's placing "energy security" at the top of the G8 agenda during Russia's presidency. The G8 countries consume 45% of world oil and produce 47% of global CO2 emissions. Their "energy security" is our energy grave! more... 0 Comments
Nicholas Powers | The subway strike of 2005 can be summed up by a phrase, “black workers are Evil Doers.” When the Transit Workers Union 100, a majority Caribbean-Latino-Asian-African American local walked off the job, the media immediately fused images of criminals and terrorists to the picketing workers. more... 2 Comments
Sam Marcy | What has made the Cuban Revolution unique? Why is it such a beacon to the workers and oppressed masses, not only of Latin America and the Caribbean but around the world?
Milt Neidenberg | The strike will resonate far beyond this city, particularly among the more oppressed, low-paid multinational workers—including many women and immigrants—who suffer intensified deprivation and indignities. Because of the strike, TWU Local 100 and its leaders came out stronger, with a contract they can live with and their dignity intact. Considering that it came during the most relentless and protracted attack on the labor movement, this was the biggest and best thing that has happened in years. That makes it an historic event. more... 2 Comments
Worker Freedom | The Wobblies are back. Organizers with the 101-year-old Industrial Workers of the World - a radical union that once included "Big Bill" Haywood, Helen Keller, and "Mother" Mary Harris Jones - recently launched efforts in New York to organize Starbucks, illegal immigrant workers, and the online grocer FreshDirect.
Eric Josephson, Track Division, TWU Local 100 | The Local 100 ranks still feel the power of our strike. We have to fight back against Pataki and management’s new attacks. But that’s the last thing on President Toussaint’s mind. He’s still trying to talk his way out of the mess he’s gotten us into and trick us into supporting his deal. more... 2 Comments
Stephen Millies | Michael Bloomberg, New York’s billionaire mayor who bought his second term in November, hadn’t planned on being confronted by nearly a hundred protesters during his extravagant inauguration on New Year’s Day. But there they were, picketing on Broadway across from City Hall. Their 50-square-foot banner demanded justice for survivors of the hurricanes that devastated New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. more... 1 Comments
Worker Freedom | Recently, Thomas Brewton, an ultra rightist blogger for the reactionary americandaily.com, published a hysterical screed accusing the IWW (and most American business unions for that matter) of the usual bogeymen that hysterical right wingers find under every bed (i.e. "Communism", "Bolshevism", "Terrorism", "Anti-Americanism", etc).

Robert Kurz | This schizoid argumentation has long sunk into mass consciusness.. That a society with the highest productivity of world history chains seniors to production longer than in the Middle Ages is hardly upsetting. People accustom themselves to the paradoxes of this best of all worlds. more... 0 Comments

Sofía Comuniello | * Partiendo de lo descrito por un conocido defensor en el extranjero del actual gobierno venezolano, se examina lo que hay tras las promocionadas Misiones o programas de acción social del régimen chavista.
Ronald B. McGuire | I give Roger Toussaint great credit for quickly perceiving that the labor and community solidarity necessary for a successful challenge of the Taylor Law simply was not there. We knew the strike was coming, yet not a single union went on strike in solidarity, not a single rank and file caucus called for a wildcat strike and not a single supporter committed civil disobedience to shut down the City and fill the City's jails with strike supporters more... 6 Comments
