text800,000 Workers Unpaid by US Govt for Trump's Palm-Greasing Border Wall by The Many and the Few
We are now witnessing American "democracy" in action with an illegal, fascist, anti-labor, anti-abortion president forcing the government shut down as of 12/22/18, suspending the pay of at least 800,000 workers indefinitely, right before a major Christian holiday which most celebrate so that the president can blackmail Congress to give him $5.7 billion for a worthless border wall so he can reward his organized crime construction company cronies and we can be sure he will benefit, one way or a...

textCommemoration held of 1966 Blockade of Napalm bombs shipped to Vietnam from Alviso, CA. by Gil Villagran, MSW
We commemorate, fifty years later, four empathetic women who courageously chose to stand up to the overwhelming war-machine to block the loading of napalm bombs, (100 million tons of Napalm bombs were stored and shipped from the tiny town of Alviso) to be sent to Vietnam. The four women were arrested, jailed briefly, and the jellied gasoline bombs made it across our planet's largest ocean to burn our nation's "communist enemies" to what must be the most grotesque human-created hell on earth....
