Clayton Hallmark | We know capitalism is a goner when neocons like Bush switch from privatization to nationalization -- and when everything we tried since the 1930s Depression has failed. We would still be in it if not for WWII. After the war we relied on Interstates and suburb evelopment, then the service economy, especially finance (see chart). Well the finance economy is failing -- esp. important to NYC -- and there is no leg left to stand on. more... 0 Comments

Mumia Abu-Jamal | Instead, we're in a situation where a scam artist sets up shop in a street-corner, playing a fraudulent 3-card monty hustle, and along comes a cop. The cop, instead of rousting the scam artist, rifles the pockets of every passerby, and delivers the stolen loot to the scammer.

Hans Bennett | With the court's PCRA rejection, Abu-Jamal's upcoming appeal to the US Supreme Court of the Third Circuit decision (the filing of this appeal is due by Oct. 20 unless a 60 day extension is requested) is now more important than ever, because this is now his last chance for a new guilt-phase trial. Fortunately, this crucial moment for Abu-Jamal coincides with two new media projects that expose injustice in his case that extends well beyond the narrow issues being considered by the courts: the British film In Prison My Whole Life and the book The Framing of Mumia Abu-Jamal, by J. Patrick O'Connor. more... 0 Comments

New York City Labor Against the War | No other country in the post-Second World War world has been so globally destructive or inflicted so many war fatalities. . . .

See you there! more... 0 Comments
