FCC protects net neutrality for civil rights win! - by Color of Change
Just a year ago, very few people thought a victory this big was possible. The telecom industry was spending millions to influence the debate, and it looked like they were winning. Sadly, they succeeded in buying the support of civil rights organizations like the NAACP, Rainbow PUSH, and National Action Network, who echoed talking points from the telecom industry rooted in trickle down economics. Some Black members of Congress joined the ISPs, after taking big campaign contributions from the t...

Dear FCC: Thanks for Listening to Team Internet - by via Electronic Frontier Foundation
Today the FCC voted three to two to reclassify broadband Internet access as a common carrier service under Title II of the Communications Act, and forbear from the parts of the Act that aren’t necessary for net neutrality rules. This reclassification gives the FCC the authority to enact (and enforce) narrow, clear rules which will help keep the Internet the open platform it is today.

The Renter Nation - Homes for All.org, 27pp - by www.homesforall.org
Housing as a human right is often subverted by the "right" to speculate. In Switzerland and the US, sharks are defended against sardines in business as usual. Housing is a creative challenge since unlike clams we are not born with built-in housing (cf. Arnold Kunzli, Housing as a Human Right, 2003, http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2003/06/266635.shtml).

NJ Bill to Legalize Cannabis, Gov. Christie Threatens Veto - by Green Lantern
In New Jersey, Senator Nicholas Scutari has introduced a bill (S1896) that would tax and regulate cannabis like alcohol. Despite several deaths (Sabina Rose and others) resulting from the state's ineffective medical cannabis program, Gov.

Profit-Making is Different Than Profit-Maximizing - by Ulrich Thielemann
Discussions of jobs and the economy are often marked by trivialization, distortion, unreality and wishful thinking. The neoliberal model promotes profits, not investments and rationalization and digitalization lead to mass unemployment. Most created jobs are temporary and precarious. People trust in the myths of the self-healing market, efficient financial markets and pulling yourself up by your bootstraps. System analysis and market failure are usually glossed over. All personal achieveme...

The bottom 40 percent of the United States combined - by Ted Rudow III, MA
Wal-Mart has announced it will raise its minimum wage to $9 an hour in April, and $10 next year, in a move that will impact about half a million low-wage workers. The increase falls far short of the $15-an-hour living wage demanded by workers who have launched historic strikes against Wal-Mart — and reported retaliation from the company for joining the protests. A 2012 analysis found the six heirs to the Wal-Mart fortune have as much wealth as the bottom 40 percent of the United States comb...
