The Downhill Plunge Speeds Up
31 Mar 2008
The state has a social nature and cannot only be a power and security state. In crisis, we all become Keynesians. Taboo for a long time, the New Deal slowly sounds good again. The 1933 "Home Owners Loan Act" was created in the first 100 days of Roosevelt's presidency.

Ruling Against Mumia Shows: No Justice in the Capitalist Courts
30 Mar 2008
ig-photo.jpgOn March 27, the U.S. appeals court in Philadelphia reaffirmed the frame-up conviction of Mumia Abu-Jamal, the former Black Panther Party spokesman and world-renowned radical journalist who has been locked up on Pennsylvania’s death row for more than a quarter century. After previously rejecting Mumia’s request to present evidence of his innocence, as well as a host of issues showing that he was railroaded by a racist court, the Court turned down Mumia’s request for a new trial. It upheld the 2001 ruling by a federal district judge that ordered a new hearing on the sentence, but limited the “choice” to the living hell of life imprisonment without parole ... or execution. Mumia is innocent. He was declared guilty and sentenced to die because of his revolutionary politics and because for years he had been a thorn in the side of the racist rulers of the misnamed “city of brotherly love.” Around the world, millions have come out in defense of Jamal. This latest ruling, like all those that preceded it, shows that the exploited and oppressed must have no faith in the racist injustice system. We call on the workers movement to mobilize its power to free Mumia now!

Advertía Jorge Luis Borges en “El jardín de los senderos que se bifurcan” que la mejor manera de no perderse en un laberinto es tomar siempre hacia la izquierda, consejo que no debemos subestimar si queremos comprender el romance entre la prensa adicta al imperio y un supuesto teólogo de la liberación tercermundista
