The Attack against Charlie Hebdo
14 Jan 2015
Photo-marche-Paris-300x118.jpgAfter the attack against Charlie Hebdo, all the formidable power of the media and bourgeois propaganda kicked in to use the emotion born of the bloody massacre to rouse support for "national unity" and the "values of the Republic." the Government, parties of the left, right and far- right (excised by the organizers of the Paris march, the far-right Front National (FN) of le Pen called for demonstrations in the provinces), trade union apparachniks and multiple associations called for large demonstrations of unity: so that rich and poor, unemployed and capitalists, workers and employers could march together for "freedom of expression" and against "terrorism", behind French political leaders and government officials and those of other countries, German, Spanish, English, etc. or even Turkish such as the Prime Minister of that government which has imprisoned dozens of journalists, which violently suppressed Kurdish demonstrators (thirty dead) and which supports the activities of jihadist groups in Syria, Israelis such as Netanyahu still dripping in blood from all its victims in Gaza, etc. a true imperialist Holy Alliance.

Message of Profound Importance to UN.
14 Jan 2015
Considers it of Profound Concern that the UN's hidden collectivist agenda seeks to eliminate God and Universal Truth. Also, Islamic terrorist should be informed that America, which has not ratified the covenant on economic, social and cultural rights was not responsible for extending the secular domain to cover the whole Universal Declaration.

Message of Profound Importance to UN.
13 Jan 2015
In my view, of profound concern that the UN's hidden collectivist agenda seeks to eliminate God and Universal Truth. Also, Islamic terrorists should be informed it was very largely America (has not ratified covenant on economic, social and cultural rights) which opposed at UN the collectivization and secularization of whole UDHR.

a 10639637_794533883947711_8968736164284232304_n.jpgBack in October 2010, a union action flyer of the Oakland ILWU read:

“In the 1934 Maritime Strike two workers were killed by police, provoking the 1934 General Strike. Organized Labor in unity with the community must mobilize to stop police violence against the oppressed.”

This 2010 flyer was part of building a strike action and protest that jailed Officer Mesherle, the cop who murdered African American Oscar Grant in cold blood. As a result of that strike action, this is was one of the extremely rare occasions in U.S. history where a cop has done any time for his murderous crimes. When it comes to answering police murders, the most essential immediate question is that the bourgeois white supremacist power structure and profit system is made to pay for its crimes. Strikes are an extremely effective means of doing this. As Robert F. Williams, a U.S. civil rights leader and persecuted political refugee wrote from exile in Cuba in his work “Negroes with Guns” in 1962:

“Psychologically … Racists consider themselves superior beings and are not willing to exchange their superior lives for our inferior ones. They are most vicious and violent when they can practice violence with impunity.”

Today, rampant police murders have caused a mass movement to erupt that is fighting for an end to that impunity. Particularly targeted by the police are Native Americans, African Americans, and Homeless people. This article (or short book) looks at those abuses and compares liberal attempts to reform police departments to the need for effective action by the multi-racial working class. It also stands up for the right to armed self-defense and the right to resist by any means necessary.
