THE SECOND AMENDMENT WAS DESIGNED TO PRESERVE SLAVERY

by Ellen Isaacs

From the earliest days of this nation, built on racism, the carrying of arms has meant the suppression of people of color. It was that way in the 1700s, and it is that way today. Like much of the policy laid out by the founders of the U.S., the real point of the second amendment was to protect profits, which at that time meant insuring the survival of slavery. To quote an article in the Guardian on 10/17 by Alan Yuhas, what the second amendment says is: Continue reading “THE SECOND AMENDMENT WAS DESIGNED TO PRESERVE SLAVERY”

HURRICANE RESPONSE IN PUERTO RICO -Supposedly, A Great Job

PR hurricaneby Al Simpson

On September 28th, Donald Trump said: “The governor of Puerto Rico is so thankful for the great job that we’re doing. . . . The governor said we are doing a great job. . . . We have had tremendous reviews from government officials . . . and this morning, the governor made incredible statements about how well we’re doing. . . . So everybody has said it’s amazing the job that we’ve done in Puerto Rico, we’re very proud of it. . . . I think we’ve done a really good job . . . and we are going to do far more than anybody else would ever be able to do and it’s being recognized as such.” Continue reading “HURRICANE RESPONSE IN PUERTO RICO -Supposedly, A Great Job”

CAPITALIST EXPLOITATION AT THE HEART OF MYANMAR’S ETHNIC CLEANSING OF THE ROHINGYA

The inter-imperialist rivalry between China and the US is being played out in the destruction of Rohingya villages and the forced migration of at least 400,000 refugees into Bangladesh. This is largely being portrayed as an attack on Muslims who have been denied citizenship in Myanmar and portrayed in the media as a religious issue. But is the issue really religious persecution? Or is this an extreme example of displacement for future economic development? Continue reading “CAPITALIST EXPLOITATION AT THE HEART OF MYANMAR’S ETHNIC CLEANSING OF THE ROHINGYA”

AN INTERNATIONAL MULTIRACIAL RESISTANCE IS NEEDED

by Ellen Isaacs

September 2017

One of the worst current disasters is occurring in Yemen, and we hear almost nothing about it. For two and a half years, US proxy Saudi Arabia has been bombing and blockading Yemen into collapse and misery. Over half a million people are infected with cholera, the largest outbreak in the world for the past 50 years, and 2,000 have died. Rampant malnutrition, with 60% of the population having inadequate food, has increased susceptibility to the disease, while massive bombings have crippled or destroyed bridges, factories, hospitals, and water and sanitation facilities. Over 30,000 health workers and many civil servants haven’t been paid for over a year (NYT 8/24/17). According to the United Nations, Yemen is the world’s largest humanitarian crisis, with more than 10 million people who require immediate assistance.

Blog Rationing Healthcare Sept 2017

In this article, I will show how the rationing of health care is an integral part of the United States’ drive for war.  The same is true for entitlement programs.  In general, the rulers will jettison or severely curtail anything that might limit the size of the war budget.

CHARLOTTESVILLE SHOWS WE NEED A MASS MULTIRACIAL MOVEMENT TO STOP THE FASCISTS IN THEIR TRACKS

charlottesville aug 2017

Thousands of anti-racists rallied in Charlottesville on August 12 against the largest rally by a combined force of white supremacists seen in decades.  Although protestors succeeded in disrupting the planned agenda of the alt-right, one anti-racist was murdered. This right-wing gathering was allowed to occur, as others will be in the future, because racism and terrorism are necessary to capitalism when it can no longer provide jobs and services that people need.  Trying to divide workers by race and nationality is the bosses’ way of protecting their interests and weakening us.  But we won’t have it!
