FREE FILM SCREENINGS: ATENCO and OAXACA, August 24th & 31st, back to back Thursdays, at 8PM
ren, www.times-up.org | GET PLUGGED IN!
This video analyzes the events in San Salvador Atenco during the
first days of May, 2006 and denounces the violation of the civilian
population's human rights by state and federal police forces. The
documentary deconstructs the mass media's operating methods, which were
responsible for creating a climate of fear and an information blockade
on the events in San Salvador Atenco, in the midst of an especially
delicate situation: the 2006 process of presidential succession in Mexico.

Ag-Mart, McDonald's, and Sweatshops in the Fields
SFA | And herein lies the connection: farmworkers' exposure to pesticides does not take place in a vacuum. Rather, it occurs along a continuum of systemic abuse that includes sub-poverty wages, sweatshop conditions, and - in the most extreme cases - modern-day slavery. The CIW insists that consumers and corporate buyers must play a crucial role in addressing the litany of abuses and injustices rampant in Florida agriculture.
Warnings of a US recession and global slowdown
Nick Beams | Three commentaries published in the Financial Times over the past week have pointed to the increasing likelihood of a US recession that would have major implications for the global economy.
In an article published on August 10 under the title “The world must prepare for America’s recession”, New York University economist Nouriel Roubini warned that while the US Federal Reserve Board may have been hoping for a “soft landing” when it decided earlier this month to halt its cycle of interest rate rises, the decision has come too late and it now confronts a recession.
The Case of Elvira Arellano
Fred Bergen | It's no wonder, then, that news of Elvira's heroic defiance of the government's deportation order has spread through the US immigrant communities like wildfire, or that she is compared with Rosa Parks, whose civil disobedience of the unjust Jim Crow segregation laws in 1955 sparked a year-long boycott by working-class black women of the Montgomery, Alabama buses, bringing the city's transit system to its knees and igniting the struggle for black civil rights nationwide.
Harlem Tenants Organize Against Gentrification
Eleanor Moonier | Harlem residents gathered in resistance to threatened displacement at a community meeting held by the The Harlem Tenants Council last Wednesday at St. Ambrose Episcopal Church. "We have got to debunk the myth that people are leaving on their own when, in fact, they are being pushed out in droves," said Nellie Hester Bailey, director of the Harlem Tenants Council.
