Worker Freedom | You might be aware that ICFTU &TUAC -OECD has issued a joint call for demonstrations in solidarity with striking Tehran bus drivers on February 15th. However the fact that this call has coincided with recent efforts by the USA and European countries to refer Iran to the Security Council of the United Nations and lingering accusations about the origins of some trade union organizations has created doubts and suspicions amongst anti war, anti capitalist activists regarding intentions behind this call.

Anti-women bigots go on rampage

Sue Davis | But reproductive rights aren’t related merely to sexuality, though they include full rights for lesbians, bi and trans women, freedom from stereotyped gender roles, an end to sexual harassment and vio lence against women and no forced sterilization. Reproductive rights are a constellation of social, economic and cultural conditions that allow every woman to make informed decisions about her life.

Bremen study group | In Germany and the US, corporations are often stylized as the suffering servant. The market is made sacrosanct; all problems are defined as interferences with the market. Corporations pay increasingly less tax (if any) and receive subsidies and incentives. Corporate welfare is called job creation (though few living wage jobs are created) and human welfare is decried as dependency. Alternative economic policy is needed to avoid confusing sickness and health and to restore long-term sanity in investment, distribution and taxation policies. more...  0 Comments
