The Egyptian Revolution’s Next Barrier

When the Egyptian army first began its offensive against the Muslim Brotherhood, many speculated that such an assault would likely be extended to the same revolutionaries who demanded — in massive demonstrations — that President Morsi be evicted from office.

Obama’s War Grows as Support Shrinks

 Some careful listening has exposed the lie that a U.S. attack (war) against Syria would be, as Obama put it, “a shot across the bow,” i.e. a “tiny war.” But even before the first missile is launched the birth of Obama’s baby war began to grow, and when it’s eventually unleashed it will resemble any other fully matured war, complete with massive destruction, the death of untold innocents and yet another Middle Eastern nation torn to pieces.

G20 Focuses on Debt, Taxes, Corruption, Syria and IMF Quotas

The G20 meeting concludes on September 6, 2013, in St. Petersburg, Russia and delegates released their leaders' declaration.

Eric LeCompte, Executive Director of Jubilee USA Network, releases the following statement:

"In spite of what's been portrayed as a meeting divided by Syria issues, the G20 has really come together on corruption. It's clear that the G20 is interested in focusing on these issues for the long haul.

What Can We Learn from 25 Years of Jobs with Justice?

 It’s no secret that the last 30 years have seen a brutal corporate assault on U.S. workers. Incomes and union membership rates have plummeted, unemployment is soaring, and the two corporate parties have joined forces to go after our previously untouchable historic gains.

Declaring Syria Regime Illegitimate Sends Strong Human Rights Message and Exposes Lenders

Over the last year, a religious antipoverty organization has met with U.S. Treasury and White House officials to encourage them to declare the Syrian government of President Bashar al-Assad an illegitimate government. This action would impose restrictions on lending to Syria that supports its military or the needs of the Assad regime. When governments or financial institutions make this declaration it lets lenders know that if they lend to Syria they may not receive a return on their investment. Types of lending and financing that could be affected are arms contracts with Russia and oil investment from Iran.

 

How the U.S. Political Left is Failing Over Syria

 It’s now painfully clear that Obama’s war on Syria is a replay of Bush’s march to war in Iraq, both built on lies. Zero evidence has been put forth that proves the Syrian government used chemical weapons. On the contrary, evidence has been recorded that suggests the U.S.-backed Syrian rebels are responsible for the attack. 

Wage Slavery in the American Auto Industry: Obama’s Shame

 The American auto industry is back in business in a big way. The carmakers are making enormous profits, direct from the blood, sweat and tears of autoworkers.

Why Mass Marches Still Matter: 2013’s March on Washington

 In terms of the numbers it attracted, the August 24, 2013 March on Washington was an inspiring success. The question remains, however, how politically effective was it?

The AFL-CIO’s New Strategy: Inspiration or Hype?

 After years of embarrassing denial, the AFL-CIO recently took its first baby step in addressing the crisis that has engulfed organized labor: it recognized there was a problem. In the run up to its national convention in early September in Los Angles, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka recently admitted that “what we’ve been doing isn’t working,” and consequently announced a new strategy that was, supposedly, a revolutionary break from the previously-failed strategy of organized labor.

A Man on a Limb: A Short Analysis of the Current Economic Crisis

 The current crisis of the global capitalist system is shaping up to be one of the worst since the Great Depression of the 1930’s. U.S. Gross Domestic Product grew by an anemic 1.8 percent in the first quarter of 2013, and only 0.4 the previous quarter. U.S. capitalists and their political representatives in the Democratic and Republican parties have got themselves in a real mess, with no end in sight.
