Capitalism is pushing to expand on the backs of working masses who can tolerate no more hardship and deprivation. AYO WALKER / TRUTHOUT; ADAPTED; JASON ARMOND / LOS ANGELES TIMES, SALMAN ALI/HINDUSTAN TIMES AND DANIEL ROMERO / LONG VISUAL PRESS / UNIVERSAL IMAGES GROUP, VIA GETTY IMAGES

Unfortunately, this article doesn't make reference to right-wing "anti-vaxxer" and related protests, comparing them to, and distinguishing them from, the progressive protests covered here. But there is a lot of good info, and the last sentence of the article poses the key strategic task for all of us.

But here’s the truth of our moment: the larger picture of American (in)justice has become far more damning than any case could be.

If you watched TV in the 1960s and 1970s as I did, you would undoubtedly have come away with the idea that this country’s courts, law enforcement agencies, and the laws they aimed to honor added up to a system in which justice was always served.

As FortisBC’s project director for a new pipeline that would feed Woodfibre LNG’s proposed export terminal, he has devised plans to bore through the mountain near Squamish, B.C., about 65 kilometres north of Vancouver.

A critical review of Seth Klein’s ‘A Good War’

I can’t forget those crisp November mornings. I’d stand respectfully still, a Scout’s red sash across my shoulder. I remember the veteran steadying himself with his cane, standing as straight as he still could, crying silently as the “Last Post” rang out.

“How many of you would have fought?” Ms. Allen had asked our class.

Every tiny hand was raised.

The heroism of the Second World War was etched into my memory.
