Cindy Sheehan to provoke the Second American Revolution July 4th, 2006-Hunger Strike at White House!
By : Marta Rodriguez - Friday June 30, 2006

Gold Star Families for Peace will announce a historic hunger strike against the war in Iraq. At 5pm, they will sit down in front of the White House to eat their last meal and hold a press conference before beginning the fast at the same location in the morning of July 4 at 10am. “We’ve marched, held vigils, lobbied Congress, camped out at Bush’s ranch. We’ve even gone to jail. Now it’s time to do more,” says peace mom Cindy Sheehan. “While others (...)

Unions pile pressure on Villepin with threat of a national strike action
By : Paris - Monday March 20, 2006
By John Lichfield After a weekend of mass student demonstrations and scattered street battles, the French government faces the prospect of a prolonged social crisis unless it suspends its new youth jobs rules. Smelling political blood, trade union leaders will consider calls for a national strike unless the Prime Minister, Dominique de Villepin, withdraws his "easy hire, easy fire" law for young, first-time, job-seekers. More than a million students, sixth-formers and sympathisers joined (...)

French Union Leaders Threaten Strike
By : France - Sunday March 19, 2006
By Philip White (EUNN) London - French union leaders threaten to strike over a contested jobs plan for youths that sparked violent protests in Paris over the weekend. French union leaders have given Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin until tomorrow night to withdraw the plan that would provide jobs for the young that critics of the jobs plan see as a reduction of older workers rights. Speaking on France-Inter radio, Bernard Thibault, head of the CGT union, said, "If the government (...)

In Search of Solidarity
By : Christopher Hayes - Saturday February 11, 2006
By Christopher Hayes It’s a week before the holidays in New York City and there’s a transit strike. A strike? In 2005? It seems an anachronism, like meat rations or air raid drills. There’s a frisson of excitement in the air mixed with logistical dread and disbelief. The morning the strike begins, billionaire mayor Mike Bloomberg accuses the largely black and Latino union of acting "thuggishly" and then proceeds to class-bait the transit workers. "You’ve got people (...)

Transit strike may embolden unions nationwide
By : LARRY McSHANE - Wednesday January 4, 2006
By LARRY McSHANE NEW YORK - The three-day walkout by city transit workers, while a hassle for millions of New Yorkers, was a boost for unions from coast to coast as they face negotiations where management calls for health care and pension givebacks are almost inevitable, labor experts say. “This was a very important stand for those workers to have made,” said Ron Blackwell, chief economist for the AFL-CIO. “It will resonate nationally.” ADVERTISEMENT The 33,000 (...)

Is The Strike Dead? Not According to Bob Schwartz...
By : Steve Early - Wednesday January 4, 2006
by Steve Early Three years ago in Boston, downtown streets and office buildings were the scene of inspiring immigrant worker activism during an unprecedented strike by local janitors. Their walk-out was backed by other union members, community activists, students and professors, public officials, religious leaders, and even a few "socially-minded" businessmen. The janitors had long been invisible, mistreated by management and, until recently, ignored by their own SEIU local union. (...)

A Fight for the Future

by JOSHUA B. FREEMAN Editor’s Note: Bus and subway workers in New York City agreed to return to work and to the bargaining table Thursday as negotiators for the Transport Workers Union and the Metropolitan Transit Authority worked on a final settlement after a two-day strike that immobilized the city.

Both sides did what they had to
By : Juan Gonzalez - Sunday December 25, 2005
by Juan Gonzalez For three days, their transit strike had paralyzed America’s greatest city, and now it was time to go back to work. The 33,700 members of Transport Workers Union Local 100 were exhausted. They had incurred the wrath of millions of transit riders, of Mayor Bloomberg, of Gov. Pataki, of the city’s entire business establishment, even of their own parent union in Washington. For violating the Taylor Law, the local and each individual striker still face huge fines. (...)

It’s clear Bloomberg just didn’t get it
By : Errol Louis - Sunday December 25, 2005
by Errol Louis Mayor Bloomberg yesterday confirmed that he stood by every word of his televised outburst against the Transport Workers Union’s leadership at the height of this week’s strike. He called them "thuggish," "selfish," "frauds" and the like. A host of critics, such as state Sen. Kevin Parker of Brooklyn, now accuse the mayor of being racially divisive. "We only need to look back to the day and time when MTA workers first gained the kind of pension and benefits which (...)

New York City transit strike was quashed by the unions
By : Bill Van Auken - Saturday December 24, 2005

By Bill Van Auken A group of top union officials in New York City played the key role in bringing about the abrupt end of the New York City transit strike, brokering a deal that leaves 34,000 subway and bus workers exposed to punishing financial penalties and the continued drive by their employer, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), to extract far-reaching concessions. This was the first shutdown of the nation’s largest mass transit system in 25 years. It expressed the (...)

MTA Strike: The Politics of No-Tomorrow
By : Wayne Barrett - Thursday December 22, 2005
By Wayne Barrett Would this strike be happening if Governor George Pataki were running for re-election next year? Would Mike Bloomberg’s city be shut down if the expiration date on the Transport Workers Union’s contract were September or October, when he reached pre-election settlements with half a dozen city unions? If your answer is no to either question, then you believe, as anyone with a memory in New York knows, that politics is the only explanation for this maddening and (...)

By Michelle Fawcett When I moved to NYC to start a Ph.D. program at NYU in 2000, my biggest concern was not the rigors of graduate study or the challenge of moving to another new city alone. It was the fear of being unable to survive economically. Sure, I was going to work in addition to being a student: as a graduate assistant, or GA, for my department. GAs work as research assistants (RAs) or teaching assistants (TAs). The work of an RA might include co-editing an article with a (...)

CANNED MUSIC AT THE THEATER ISN’T A SWEET SOUND
By : CARLTON WILKINSON - Wednesday December 7, 2005
BY CARLTON WILKINSON The two-week musicians’ strike at Radio City Music Hall in November ended in a deal hammered out with the help of a mediator named by New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg. A job action staged by musicians union Local 802 halted a dress rehearsal, and the resulting dispute left the Rockettes dancing to prerecorded music for shows in the first two weeks of November. On Nov. 18, the live musicians returned to the "Christmas Spectacular," playing to packed audiences (...)

Singers and staff take drastic action in protest at budget cuts by Barbara McMahon in Rome Opera lovers in Italy this season may notice something different about the performers. Many of them are looking distinctly svelte after going on hunger strike to protest about proposed cuts to the country’s arts budget.

Belgian workers have caused widespread disruption with a 24-hour national strike in protest at government plans to up the retirement age from 58 to 60. Few buses and trams were running in most cities, and Charleroi airport, south of Brussels, was shut down. Trains were not affected as unions wanted them to keep running to carry people to protests in the capital. Tens of thousands of protesters have been marching through Brussels to get the prime minister to reconsider. A primary school (...)

The provincial Liberals, after waiting out an all-night delay tactic by the NDP, passed the legislation that imposed a settlement on the province’s teachers, who have been without a contract since July, 2004.

A nationwide one-day strike in France has disrupted travel and business and dealt the first major challenge to the economic program of Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin. Official figures showed turn-out from the public sector, with 30 percent of railway staff and teachers, 23 percent of electricity workers and between 15 and 30 percent of post office staff joining the stoppages.

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok.

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE
Sunday 28 October
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college.

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
