State Department Harasses Protesters at Salvadoran Consulate

NYCISPES | On Monday, July 10, 2006, New Yorkers gathered outside the Salvadoran Consulate on Park Avenue between 36th & 37th streets to protest the recent wave of repression in El Salvador, particularly the airforce attacks on students and administrators and subsequent police occupation of the National University. Activists denounced the repression and the US State Department’s support for the International Law Enforcement Academy (ILEA). ILEA has been condemned by human rights activists in El Salvador and elsewhere for its controversial refusal to prohibit US military instructors from teaching civilian law enforcement policy, strictly prohibited in the Peace Accords signed by El Salvador and the US government in 1992. more...  2 Comments

What’s next for the immigrants’ rights movement?

Fred Bergen | Workers need their own party, one that fights in the streets and at the elections for a platform of workers rights, including full rights for immigrants. The natural base for such a party is the labor unions. In fact, some unions have formed a labor party, but the party, endorsed by eight national unions, hasn't yet run a single candidate in its ten-year history. It is gathering signatures for ballot access in South Carolina, although it hasn't named any candidates yet. But regardless of whether the LP picks a candidate and runs a campaign this year in South Carolina, the union bureaucrats who control its political decisions will never challenge the Democrats. They would rather waste millions of dollars on anti-worker politicians and parties than risk setting in motion the workers, their own members, the class that is bound to upset the bureaucrats' comfortable "partnership" with the bosses, not to mention their own high-paying gigs. more...  0 Comments
