I became a Communist in the summer of 2019,

not through my reading of Marx, Engels, Connolly, or Lenin,

but by sitting in the humid air of a Mississippi Justice Court,

keeping tally as tenants, one-by-one, lost their home

to their landlord’s uncontested petition for

“immediate possession of the premises.”Read More »

Violent ‘Color Revolution’ In Hong Kong Fails Despite Strong NYTSupport


The New York Times—like much of the US media—are specialists at lying by omission—of context.

When the U.S. instigates its so called ‘color revolutions’, the transatlantic main stream media are usually supportive. But the support is rarely as extreme as the extraordinary one the New York Times gives to the rioters in Hong Kong.

For the timeline we check with Wikipedia on the 2019 Hong Kong anti-extradition bill protests:Read More »

Slavery in U.S.: Price tag $17 trillion

A Journal of People report

Slavery is an issue in politics in the United States. A new bill on the issue is in the U.S. Congress. Activists have been calling for reparations for years. In 2016, a UN panel declared that the U.S. owed black Americans reparations because of slavery and its link to injustices today in America.

In late-June, the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties held the first hearing in a decade on H.R. 40, the Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act. Read More »

Wretched of the Earth contingent on People’s Climate March of Justice and Jobs

The extended heat wave afflicting India has surpassed 50⁰C (122 degrees Fahrenheit), even worse than the terrible scorcher that was assessed “the 5thdeadliest on record” and claimed thousands of lives in 2015.1 Matters could get even worse, the city of Chennai has almost run out of water, putting 10 million lives at risk.2 South-eastern Africa has been hit by an unprecedented series of devastating cyclones, affecting millions of people.3 The global North is beginning to feel the crisis too. Forest fires are increasing across North America and Australia. The late June heat wave across continental Europe pushed temperatures in France over 45⁰C, and triggered a wildfire in Catalonia, which authorities believe started when a pile of manure self-ignited.4 The **** really has hit the fan.Read More »

Do US Military Planes Announce a Formal Aggression Against Venezuela?

by Alfredo Hurtado

Orinoco Tribune | July 31, 2019

In less than a month, the United States air raids in our Maiquetía Flight Information Region (FIR) have multiplied, following a pattern that is obviously very worrying. The routes described by its EP-3 Ares II aircraft are revealing, taking into account the nature of this type of aircraft.

The EP-3 Aries II is a signal intelligence reconnaissance aircraft, and they would be able to provide fleet commanders and theaters of US operations, in the event of an aggression, real-time information on our radar (frequencies, range, location), aerial devices (flight identification, threat characterization, trajectory, speed, height) and frequency bands of military and civil communications for electronic radio interference actions.Read More »
