What’s next for the immigrants’ rights movement?
07 Jul 2006
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.

Howard Zinn & 'The NN-phant in the Room'
07 Jul 2006
The huge omnivorous herd consumes everywhere on our earth as much as it can grab, and tramples millions of human beings to death. That doesn't seem to matter. The 'elephant boys' don't speak about the bloody pulp underneath the feet of the big animals: instead they give'm a bath in the mainstream.

The Ancient Redwoods: Witnesses to a Fading Republic
06 Jul 2006
The Ancient Redwoods are older by centuries than the American Republic itself. They are found only in the northwest coastal region of the nation. They have witnessed this country’s birth struggle, its awful Civil War, its rapacious expansion westward, and now, finally, its imperial hubris and rapid decline. By the time the Bush-Cheney Gang gets done ripping the country off (aided by complicit Democrats), the Republic will be a fading memory.
