Palestinian Nakba: 71 years without a country

Join us on April 23rd to hear the stories about the occupation in Palestine and life as refugees.

In 1948, Zionist militias destroyed over 400 Palestinian villages, with more than half of the population being killed or expelled that year during what Palestinians call “The Nakba” or catastrophe.

Marian Fathalla, or Umm Akram was among those expelled, she has spent 71 years in a crowded makeshift refugee camp where she has raised three generations, all waiting to return to Palestine. She has lived through five Israel invasions. Amena El-Ashkar, is the granddaughter of Nakba survivors who has known no home but a refugee camp.

HEAR THEIR STORIES.

The event begins at 7:00 p.m.

Cuban Five Hero Declares his Solidarity with Julian Assange

There is precedence when the media has stepped up and revealed secrets publicly that altered the course of history. These are those moments when released information is so significant that once out it cannot be swept back under the rug; no matter that it has destroyed political careers, personalities or even damaged powerful political parties. In this age social media, for the most part, is now the motor force to spread undeniable truths or lies.

Wikileaks was the forerunner to this phenomenon and a great source of uncomfortable truth of that kind during the last years. The website created by the 47-year-old Australian journalist Julian Assange gathered rich and powerful enemies around the world for publishing tens of thousands of secret documents, the most damaging were related to the United States State Department.

Plenty of resources were thrown at the ugly truth in the documents in an attempt to control the damage and clean up the mess but that was out of reach for even those powerful countries who try to portray their ruthless interventions as “democratic” missions.

From that point on Assange was a target and on June 29, 2012, when the British System of Justice issued an arrest warrant against Assange, he sought refuge at Ecuador’s Embassy to London. Then president of the Latin American country, Rafael Correa, granted him the status of “political refugee” and then the Ecuadorian citizenship.

During this period Wikileaks, and especially Assange, have been at risk. The British and the U.S. have laid siege against them. Once Lenin Moreno became president of Ecuador and started his descent into being a minor neo liberal player the noose has been tightening around the embassy in London….

Milwaukee, September 2, 2019: Laborfest 2019

Laborfest 2019

SAVE THE DATE! September 2nd, 2019

While Wisconsin is getting a wintry mix right now, we’re looking towards warmer weather! You can find all updates for Laborfest in this event and on our website (milwaukeelabor.org) as we get more details.

Every year, labor unions and union members of the Milwaukee Area Labor Council, AFL-CIO, put on the biggest festival on the Milwaukee Lakefront that’s free and open to the public. Through the generosity of local unions and the companies at which they work, we can bring you a day of fun at the lakefront that includes live music for adults and families, children’s entertainment like science and magic shows, a classic car show and union raffle which has included a genuine union-made Harley-Davidson motorcycle for several years.

But before you head to the lakefront, be sure to visit the parade route to see the union members in their trucks, on their Harleys, and marching with their locals in downtown Milwaukee.

Mumia Abu-Jamal wins right to re-open appeals

https://bit.ly/2GfK0VC

The following is a press release by Mobilization4Mumia on April 17, 2019. Communist Workers League stands in solidarity with Mumia Abu-Jamal and hopes that this brings him one step closer to freedom.

Community activists and leaders from the Philadelphia region will hold a news conference 12 noon, Thursday, April 18 at the Octavius V. Catto Statue on the south side of Philadelphia City Hall to discuss today’s decision by District Attorney Larry Krasner to finally relent to Pennsylvania Common Pleas Court Judge Leon Tucker’s ground-breaking decision which gives political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal the right to reopen his appeals.

By rescinding his appeal, Krasner has removed a major hurdle for Abu-Jamal to eventually be released after 37 years in prison. This is a significant development in Abu-Jamal’s quest for freedom.

Public pressure on Krasner’s office to do the right thing and rescind the appeal gained momentum in early February when Yale Law School students publicly withdrew their invitation to Krasner to deliver a keynote address to their Rebellious Lawyering (Reb/Law) conference. In Philadelphia, activists often confronted Krasner whenever he spoke in public with signs calling on him to “Drop the Appeal.”

The next step is re-opening Abu-Jamal’s appeals filed between 1995 and 2012 before the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. Abu-Jamal’s attorneys will argue against the constitutional violations that unfairly convicted the imprisoned journalist who is suffering from the ravages of Hepatitis C and glaucoma. As Philadelphia’s DA, Krasner will be in the position of defending police, judicial and prosecutorial misconduct.

Attorney Rachel Wolkenstein added: “For over 37 years, Mumia has been imprisoned for a crime [that] police and prosecution know he did not commit. We now have a legal opening in the fight for Mumia’s freedom.

“What is needed is an all-out international mobilization, igniting all those in opposition and struggle against this racist, murderous capitalist system and all its depredations. Winning Mumia’s freedom is part of the liberation struggle for us all.”
