Reform and revolution

Sam Marcy | What has made the Cuban Revolution unique? Why is it such a beacon to the workers and oppressed masses, not only of Latin America and the Caribbean but around the world?

There have been many uprisings, guerrilla wars, progressive electoral victories and military coups in Latin America in the course of this century. But the triumph of Fidel Castro's guerrilla army over the Batista dictatorship did something that no previous struggle had accomplished. more...  5 Comments

Why the TWU strike was an historic event

Milt Neidenberg | The strike will resonate far beyond this city, particularly among the more oppressed, low-paid multinational workers—including many women and immigrants—who suffer intensified deprivation and indignities. Because of the strike, TWU Local 100 and its leaders came out stronger, with a contract they can live with and their dignity intact. Considering that it came during the most relentless and protracted attack on the labor movement, this was the biggest and best thing that has happened in years. That makes it an historic event. more...  2 Comments

SOUTH BRONX: Drained of support

In the poverty-stricken South Bronx, where rates of both HIV/AIDS and children orphaned to the disease are among the highest in the city, a 15-year-old community health nonprofit called Health People works with local HIV-positive parents to help connect them to proper medical services and prepare crucial guardianship papers should they fall ill or die.

ARGENTINA - Encontremos a Marita, encontremos la justicia!!

Familia Verón - ARGENTINA | Dice el viejo adagio que “Todos los caminos conducen a Roma”, la capital del mundo, llamada así por sus conquistas y por ser el centro de operaciones del Imperio Romano. El caso Marita Verón ha puesto en exposición la cruda realidad de la trata de blancas en el Noroeste Argentino que, como la antigua Roma, parece tener en La Rioja su centro de operaciones.

The Sago Mine Disaster

Cliff Willmeng | The effect on the families was devastating. State police and SWAT team members, who had already been assembled to keep the company safe, were dispatched to the church. A fight had to be broken up when one of the community members lunged for a company official. It was an anger that, no doubt, was born though years of company lies and abuse. If government power could not be used for the health and safety of these miners, it was dispatched rapidly enough for the safety of coalmine officials. more...  5 Comments

From RTW 31: Toussaint’s Contract Deal Falling Apart - Mass Membership Meetings Must Decide the Way Forward!

Eric Josephson, Track Division, TWU Local 100 | The Local 100 ranks still feel the power of our strike. We have to fight back against Pataki and management’s new attacks. But that’s the last thing on President Toussaint’s mind. He’s still trying to talk his way out of the mess he’s gotten us into and trick us into supporting his deal. more...  2 Comments
