PEF! | On December 7, 2005, The F.B.I. and local law enforcement began a round up, of alleged environmental and animal rights activists. This attack was not just on radical environmentalists this attack was on the entire environmental movement and American people. Like the Red Scare in the 40's, 20's, and turn of the 20th century the radical left was attacked in the same way which lead to an over all weakening of the progressive movement. more... 0 Comments

Alan Woods | In Venezuela the forces of the counterrevolution are engaged in an all-out offensive against Chavez and the Revolution. Right-wing students stage armed provocations on the campuses and the streets. The bourgeois media, nationally and internationally, are whipping up a campaign of hysteria against "tyranny" and "dictatorship". US imperialism, with the help of Juan Carlos and the Spanish bourgeoisie, is striving to isolate Venezuela and create an anti-revolutionary bloc in Latin America, based on Brazil and Colombia, Chile and Argentina.

Lal khan | With the unleashing of a new wave of state terror after the imposition of martial law in the name of a state of emergency, the Musharraf dictatorship has shown its true colours. There has been brutal repression. Thousands of political and trade union activists have been arrested. Women workers have been severely beaten in front of the TV cameras. Trade unions have been further crushed and along with the state oppression there has been an avalanche of price hikes, and increase in poverty and unemployment - all as a direct result of the policies of the present regime.

Oliveira | City Council members Rosie Mendez and Alan Gerson introduced a bill today that aims to protect the rights of senior citizens when they are sued in housing court and cannot afford a lawyer. The Right to Counsel Bill would establish a right to counsel for low income senior citizens in eviction and foreclosure proceedings.

By Michael Roberts | Just a couple of weeks ago, America's government tax collectors, the Internal Revenue Service, issued a new report. The IRS found that the richest 1% of Americans earned a record 21.2% of all income in 2005, up from 19% the year before. At the same time, the bottom 50% earned just 12.8% of all income in 2005, down from 13.4%. This was a record. IRS data only go back to 1986, but other academic research suggests that the last time wealthy Americans had such a high percentage of the national income was in the 1920s.
