NOW IS NOT THE TIME TO COMPROMISE

SEIZE THE TIME!

The uprisings in Europe, then North Africa and the Mideast, and in the United States are not a coincidence. They are, at least in part, a common rebellion against a common enemy that threatens to make working people pay for its plunder and failures: the neo-liberal policies of unregulated capitalism, croney government, and phoney "banking". We believe the best of what workers have spoken so far is not reforming a crippled and crippling capitalist system, but for the working class to step in as replacements for bundling bankers and bungling politicians.


WE HAVE A CHOICE TO MAKE: WE CAN LET OUR MOVEMENT BE CHANNELED TO
WEAK REFORM AND ELECTORAL MEASURES OR WE CAN PUSH ONWARD
NOT JUST FOR WORKERS' RIGHTS IN THE OLD SYSTEM


BUT FOR WORKERS' POWER to control our own work, our wealth, our well being. Early in the last century the newpaper The Messenger, founded by A. Philip Randolph, called for mass strikes and workers' control as "the antidote for capitalist poisons".

Tata Noah chief of Indigenous communities
4 years 6 weeks ago

My grandfather walked with a very long stick adorned with many allegories. Tata Noah told me long ago that it represented our true nation, which was all unknown, because many of those living in the village had given in to the viciousness of the white people and did not follow the customs of our fathers. That hurt my Tata, so when I arrived, he ever and ever told me many things and stories of our nation... Tata Noah chief of Indigenous communities He was not very tall, but he was considered more Indigenous that other people from our country. His skin was almost white, like a Creole’s, and his eyes were the color of the sky. Some of his children took the same eye color. He was my Tata Noah, the grandfather of my father, chief of Indigenous communities of Mollepata and Mollebamba. He was always working, whether in the fields that the villagers had dedicated to him, or at home using our machine to make ice cream with fruit. It was what I liked best as a child; the frozen fruit was so diverse and delicious. I always remember my grandfather Noah in the largest room of the house, with his ice cream maker. The favorite of all Tata Noah’s children was my grandfather, his eldest son, who followed the tradition of our ancestors and married his first cousin, who gave birth to my father. I became his favorite when I was born. I heard my Mamacona Herlinda say that Tata Noah cried when I was born because I was bleeding in the eye. He went into the hills for several weeks to conduct a ceremony to the ancestors and to ask our Apus (spiritual leaders) to heal me of what I was born with.

Wisconsin State Senate voted Last Night to end End Collective Bargaining!
4 years 6 weeks ago

http://www.alternet.org/story/15... Wisconsin GOP Rams Through Union-Busting Measure; Thousands Storm Capitol Wisconsin Republicans rammed through a measure stripping state public employees of their collective bargaining rights. What happens now? March 9, 2011 Late Wednesday, Wisconsin Republicans rammed a measure through the Senate stripping collective bargaining rights from most public workers in the state. Although the 14 Democrats who fled the state to block Governor Walker's union-busting bill remain in Illinois, Republicans were able to push through the measure anyway by separating the collective bargaining provision from the other elements of Governor Scott Walker's "budget repair bill." (This, after claiming for months that killing public workers' right to negotiate was all about reining in the state's debt.) The measure passed 18-1, with Republican Sen. Dale Schultz voting against. Critics say the rushed legislative session -- with only one Democrat in attendance -- may have violated the state's open meetings law. So what's next? AlterNet has the latest updates and analysis: Update: Within hours of the vote, the Capitol was flooded with thousands of furious protesters: "The whole world is watching!" they shouted as they pressed up against the heavily guarded entrance to the Senate chamber," ABC reports. Update: Push for recall: State Democratic Party chairman Mike Tate released a statement pledging to pursue recall of all Republican lawmakers that are eligible: Using tactics that trample on the traditions of our Legislature, the Republican leadership has betrayed our state. Republicans have rubber-stamped the desire of the Koch Brothers and their godshead Scott Walker to cripple Wisconsin's middle class and lower benefits and wages for every single wage-earner in our state.
Denver Mayoral Forum on Police Accountability April 7

The Colorado Chapter of the National Lawyers Guild and the ACLU of Colorado are sponsoring a forum for Denver Mayoral candidates specifically on the issue of police accountability. As the recent beating of Michael DeHerrera and the tragic death in custody of Marvin Booker make clear, the city of Denver faces a serious problem of police abuse of power and a serious lack of accountability for abuses committed by DPD officers. A large turnout at this forum will put the candidates for mayor on notice that the public expects whoever takes that office to take this issue seriously and to have a clear plan for reform. Four panelists with backgrounds in issues of police accountability--Metro State criminology professor Joseph Sandoval; ACLU Legal Director Mark Silverstein; DU Law Professor Jessica West; and community activist Lisa Calderon--will question the candidates about their plans for restoring public trust in Denver law enforcement. The forum, free and open to the public, will be held THURSDAY, APRIL 7, 6 - 8 PM, CENTRAL PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH, 1660 SHERMAN ST. Doors open at 6 pm, program begins at 6:30.

Boulder Digital Arts Builds Community of Digital And Creative Professionals in Boulder

Anonymous

Boulder, Colo. – (February 24, 2011) – Boulder Digital Arts, an organization dedicated to empowering the creative and technology communities in the Rocky Mountain region, opened the doors to its new affordable, professional and creative coworking space on Feb. 1, 2011. The new coworking facility, conveniently located in central Boulder, is the first of its kind to focus specifically on building a community of individuals involved in the creative and digital industries.

“Coworking is redefining the way we do work and has become the workplace of choice for many people,” says Bruce Borowsky, who helped found BDA seven years ago and has built its reputation as a national hub for practical skills training in video production, digital photography, web design, social media and other digital disciplines. “While other coworking spaces are broad and unspecific in their industry focus, BDA’s coworking facility will be unique in that the space is specifically geared toward the creative and digital communities. We have created an environment that will inspire innovation, encourage collaboration and foster productivity.”

With the economic downturn of two years ago forcing many people to reinvent themselves, add new skills to their repertoire and even start new careers, coworking has been gaining traction in recent years and is very often the best choice for the growing numbers of isolated telecommuters, solopreneurs, and members of the creative and digital communities.

For information and specifics about BDA’s coworking space, call 303-800-4647 or visit the Boulder Digital Arts website.

Coworking Options:

Boulder Digital Arts new coworking facility offers both private offices and desks available for rent, as well as short-term passes.

Wisconsin Worker Solidarity Rally in Durango

Wisconsin Solidarity in Your Area: Rally to Save the American Dream

Where: 66 cities including all state capitals

When: Tomorrow mid-day

What: In cities across the nation, including every state capital, we’ll come together to stand in solidarity with the people of Wisconsin and rally to Save the American Dream. Teachers, nurses, firefighters, students, police officers and others protesting in Wisconsin have occupied the Capitol building and streets of Madison for the past nine days, and now their protest is going national.

-

Whatever you’ve got planned for Saturday afternoon, reschedule it.

Teachers, nurses, firefighters, students, police officers and others protesting in Wisconsin have occupied the Capitol building and streets of Madison for the past nine days.

On Saturday at noon, their protest is going national. In cities across the nation, including every state capital, we’ll come together to stand in solidarity with the people of Wisconsin.

This time the Republicans have gone too far in their attempts to bust unions, slash state budgets, and give tax breaks to their wealthy friends.

So on Saturday we’ll stand up to say that we’re sick of the attacks on workers’ rights. That we’re sick of an economy that showers corporate executives with bonuses while squeezing middle-class families. That we still believe in the American Dream. And that we’re willing to fight for it.
