Jason Gooljar | Reading about the abuse that the Mexican people have endured from neoliberal policies in maqiladora factories you wonder if there is any hope at all left. For those who do not know, a "maqiladora" is a factory that assembles imported US parts then sends them back to the US. It is truly disgusting, that is the only word I have for such a device devised by greedy capitalist pigs. more... 0 Comments

Pragya Bhagat | On December 3, 1984 the world's worst industrial disaster attacked the Union Carbide pesticide plant in Bhopal. Twenty-one years later, the death toll has risen to more than twenty thousand, with thirty people still dying every month due to exposure-related illnesses and more than 150,000 living with them. Dow bought Union Carbide in 2001, purchasing its assets as well as its liabilities. Dow set aside $2.2 billion to pay off former Union Carbide asbestos workers in United States but refuses to pay the liabilities in India. University of Texas students are protesting against this apartheid. more... 0 Comments

OnNYturf and New Yorker | a href=http://www.onnyturf.com/articles/read.php?article_id=198>Will from OnNYTurf writes: "A State Judge ruled Monday that the Empire State Development Corporation (ESDC), which is reviewing Ratner's development plan for the Atlantic Yards area in Prospect Heights, must dismiss its retained attorney David Paget. Until working for ESDC Paget was Ratner's attorney, and was actually working on Ratner's proposal to the ESDC. [...] The decision to boot Paget from ESDC was one half of the judge's ruling in a case brought by Develop Don't Destroy Brooklyn and a coalition of Brooklyn community groups and Brooklyn lawmakers. In the other half the judge ruled in Ratner's favor to allow demolition of six buildings owned by Ratner." [Read More]

Jason Gooljar | Yes, I know it's snowing outside in New York and throughout the northeast and other regions. It does this every year without fail. It does look like a blizzard and I'm quite sure there will be a tremendous amount of snowfall. But a thought came to mind this time. It had to do with the homeless population.
