CRD 10-25-21 Workers’ Solidarity, Mandates, and the Political Economy of COVID

https://covidtaskforce.pacifica.org/2021/10/25/workers-solidarity-mandates-and-the-political-economy-of-covid/

This week on COVID, Race, & Democracy, we look at the struggles over COVID vaccine mandates for workers with NYC TWU 100 executive board member Evangeline Byars.

Dr. Nayvin Gordon examines the policy of COVID Zero that would seek to eliminate the virus in the US.

University of Cardiff (UK) professor Fabio Vighi talks to journalist and author Max Blumenthal about the political economy of the pandemic.

Fabio Vighi’s article, “A Self-fulfilling Prophecy: System collapse and the pandemic simulation”

CUNY AFT PSC Professor Carol Lang spoke to Pacifica’s Steve Zeltzer about the struggle in labor movements and unions to support Palestinians and the boycott of Israel debate among the AFL-CIO and the American Federation of Teachers members.

Thomas O’Rourke (WPFW) has an update on the case of imprisoned Wikileaks publisher Julian Assange.

Just after the bombshell revelations about the CIA plot to kidnap and assassinate WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange while he sought political asylum in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, the Belmarsh Tribunal held its first face-to-face session at the London Convocation Hall to judge the U.S. government for its crimes against humanity in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and for the imprisonment of Julian Assange, who revealed such information.

With this process, the Belmarsh Court emulates the Bertrand Russell – Jean Paul Sartre people’s court, which sat in Stockholm and Copenhagen in 1967 to try the White House for war crimes in Vietnam.
