From George Washington to a Broomstick for a President
19 Feb 2007
When Rep. Elijah E. Cummings (D-MD) met with President George W. Bush, in the White House, on Feb. 15, 2007, he got the distinct impression that Bush’s “soul was shut down,” and that on the Iraqi War that his “mind was shut tight.” Non-binding Congressional Resolutions will not stop Bush’s “Surge.” Cutting off funds for the war will. Antiwar activists are showing the way on this issue by taking their campaign directly to the U.S. Congress.

Support Ward Churchill. Support Academic Freedom.
19 Feb 2007
The following is an essay that deconstructs the charges of research misconduct that were leveled against Ward Churchill - charges that were obvious retaliation for his comments concerning 9-11.

Please take the time to read this report. Internal appeals are now underway and it is possible that Ward Churchill may be fired from his tenured position at the University of Colorado at any time now.

If this happens, we cannot let it go unchallenged.....

Is The Bush White House Advancing Fascist Agenda?
19 Feb 2007
With the illegal “war on terror,” renewal of the USA PARTIOT Act, the Real ID Act of 2005, and the implementation of the National Animal ID Act, is the Bush administration taking the Constitutionally guaranteed freedoms of unwitting United States citizens? In this summary of the documentary “One Nation Under Siege,” we can see the pattern of our freedoms falling by the wayside, one at a time.

Hands off Amber Abreu! Class Struggle Defense Bulletin #1
18 Feb 2007
Hands off Amber Abreu!
Drop all the charges now!
Free abortions on demand!
Women's liberation through socialist revolution!

Organizing update

Working Class Emancipation's first trip to Lawrence and Boston, MA to organize defense for Amber Abreu was a limited success, with about twenty-five volunteers signing up to help with the defense campaign. Fliers for this Friday's protest are being distributed by our volunteers at Lawrence High School and among the members of the United Nurses and Allied Professionals union (UNAP) in Rhode Island. But there is much more work to be done, and the defense campaign requires a much higher level of organization and activity to have any chance of success. It's time to step up distribution of the protest flier and of this, and forthcoming, defense bulletins, time to call organizing meetings - even if they are just a handful of people initially - to discuss the next steps and coordinate work. It's time for all the organizations that claim to be for socialism or for abortion rights, to join us in a united front to mobilize for the picket on February 23. Everyone who defends Amber Abreu against these racist frame-up charges is welcome, as long as there are no restrictions on the participating groups' slogans and speech. All out for the picket line, Friday, February 23, starting at 8:30 AM: Lawrence District Court, 2 Appleton Street, Lawrence, MA!
