John Conyers of the Judiciary Committee to issue the subpoenas.

Only Pressure on the Streets Can Advance the Struggle of Immigrant Workers

Written by Alex Gillis |
Negotiations in the U.S. Senate on immigration “reform” legislation have stalled. Is this a victory or a defeat for the working class? Despite the hypocritical tears of some national immigrant rights leaders who lament that “we lost a big opportunity”, in reality, this stagnation of the process reflects an equilibrium in the balance of forces between those who benefit from the most miserable exploitation of 12 million workers, and the interests and organizational strength of those workers and their allies.
A detailed analysis of the proposal clearly reveals that this is an anti-immigrant “reform” which would increase the persecution of undocumented immigrants. This law would not improve the conditions of life of millions of families; on the contrary, it would make things worse. more...  0 Comments

A Modest Proposal for 2008: Draft Mumia

John Brown | For many years, millions and millions of people, awake to Uncle Sam's ShellGame Politricks, have sought an alternative to and the concrete negation of that system, but found no candidate with an organic connection with the broad masses of people. Perhaps this was because Uncle Sam assassinated so many of the best young leaders - perhaps for other reasons as well.

Regardless, a campaign with Mumia at its head could reverse that. more...  0 Comments
