First Voices | A historic burial ground reported to hold the remains of slaves, Native Americans and early Dutch settlers, which is privately owned, is slated for development. The Coalition for the Preservation of Teaneck's Indian-Slave Cemetery is attempting to raise $100,000 by next week in order to save the Pomander Walk and prevent the graves from being desecrated.

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?
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

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. It also offers mentoring programs for children neglected by overtaxed parents. [Read More]more... 0 Comments
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.
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
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

Andrew Kennis | The Zapatistas began today the first of a series of town-hall like meetings that will comprise the bulk of a six-month nationwide caravan dubbed as the Other Campaign. The campaign will touch every state in Mexico and aspires to form a wide-ranging non-electoral and anti-capitalist alliance that can be a powerful enough of a force to implement a new constitution for Mexico. more... 0 Comments
Stephen Millies | Michael Bloomberg, New York’s billionaire mayor who bought his second term in November, hadn’t planned on being confronted by nearly a hundred protesters during his extravagant inauguration on New Year’s Day. But there they were, picketing on Broadway across from City Hall. Their 50-square-foot banner demanded justice for survivors of the hurricanes that devastated New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. more... 1 Comments
