04 Oct 2011
In this day and age it's so easy for us to think only of ourselves and not be willing to give up some of who we are for things greater than ourselves and the drives of our own base needs. It isn't easy to put aside our ambitions regarding money, power, fame or even family for a small amount of time given in service of our community, nation or even the good of those suffering in other nations for any amount of time.

Fuel for Occupy Wall Street's Fire
03 Oct 2011
Sometimes it explodes. But social explosions are rare events. Are the Wall Street protests and their nationwide copycats an explosion or just a flare up?

For an explosion to happen there must be not only explosive material, but plenty of oxygen to feed the fire. For social movements this means that enough working people, students, and unemployed find the necessary unity and inspiration to push through obstacles and maintain enthusiasm.

03 Oct 2011
We, the undersigned women of African descent and anti-violence advocates, activists, scholars, organizational and spiritual leaders wish to address the SlutWalk.

Philippine Airline workers intensify protest actions
03 Oct 2011
2011-philippines-pal-abandons-talks-union-palea.jpgThe Philippine Airlines Employees’ Association (PALEA) today asserted that Philippine Airlines (PAL) President Jaime Bautista’s announcement that they no longer acknowledge Gerry Rivera and Bong Palad as union officers exposes union busting as the real aim of outsourcing. “Truly a fish is caught by its mouth. Actually PAL is not just recognizing me and Palad as union officers but 62% of PALEA’s leadership and 70% of its membership who have been illegally lockout and terminated. Outsourcing thus is tantamount to union busting,” stated Gerry Rivera, PALEA president and vice chair of Partido ng Manggagawa (PM - Labor Party).
