Peter Stern | Ours isn't any good to us any more.

After all, U.S. citizens can't make it here. The late singer "Old Blue Eyes" Frank Sinatra ( used to sing that about New York City, but today the same holds true for the entire United States.

Washington’s New Imperial Strategy In Venezuela

CSD | During the second half of the twentieth century, capitalists in the first world began to saturate domestic opportunities for investment and growth.

Growing corporate conglomerates looked to expand their operations throughout the world, investing, privatizing, and buying up everything they could get their hands on. National capital was looking to go international, and by the end of the century, capitalism had become truly global. more...  0 Comments

Reverend Al Sharpton Joins East Side Residents to Protest Hunter Land Grab

Amy Wolf | The Julia Richman Education Complex, a six school complex (housing four high schools, a pre-K-8 elementary school and a middle school for children with autism) has been an inspiration to schools across the country.

Yet, it is being threatened by Hunter College in a proposed land grab that would displace this historic school.

Rev. Al Sharpton says, "Hunter College has other options, our children don't. Hunter has a million square feet of property on 25th St. to build itself a state-of-the-art science building. Instead, Hunter and the DOE want to push our kids out of the upper east side to an inaccessible location on the FDR Drive between two major hospitals. This is an outrage. Hunter and the DOE have made a real estate deal that sacrifices our children." more...  2 Comments
