Statement On the Plight of Filipino Teachers of Maryland?s PGCPS (tags)
Lured by the American dream, non-immigrant workers here in the US have been subjected to different forms of exploitation, manipulation and abuse. The complexities of the recruitment process are being taken advantage of by placement agencies and sometimes with the collaboration of representatives of US employers. Oftentimes foreign workers leave their country deep in debt in raising money needed to cover for exorbitant placement and other fees.

She was a single mom from Mindanao, in the Philippines, who saw, like so many others, employment in Saudi Arabia as a route out of poverty. When he picked her up at the Dammam International Airport in June, little did she know she was entering, not a brighter chapter of her life but a chamber of horrors from which she would be liberated only after six long months.

Memorial Day Weekend at the Indy500 in Indianapolis, Indiana, U.S.A. (tags)
I absolutely, completely, totally, wholeheartedly agree that we should honor and care for our veterans, instead of waging what Aaron Glantz, in his book "The War Comes Home," calls "America's war against veterans." But, I would much rather see them honored with medical and psychiatric care, education, job training, and whatever else they may need to survive than with more military recruitment fests, including this Indy500 spectacle celebrating cars, greenhouse gas, advertising, and militarism.
SCRAP JROTC (tags)
The Alliance-Philippines (AJLPP) condemns the San Francisco Unified School District Board's decision to reinstate JROTC after voting to scrap the JROTC three years ago. On May 12, 2009, the San Francisco Unified School District School Board voted to reinstate The Pentagon’s Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC). Touted by top military brass as their best recruitment tool, over 40% of JROTC cadets go on to enlist into the military after graduation. The AJLPP protests JROTC’s reinstatement that was carried out despite popular opposition from San Francisco’s progressive community, and its disproportionately high cost to the school district.

While the CSU Fullerton recruiting event will be resisted, opponents are trying to prevent it from happening at all. Already, the University has expressed concern.

Blood Money: The Human-Capital Equation of the U.S. Occupation of Iraq (tags)
When a state is determined to pursue war, and all forms of indirect symbolic protest actions have failed to sway politicians to halt their imperialist aggression, the only remaining option is direct action by the working class. One option is a general strike by workers that can effect the production and transpiration of military capital, that is the materials essential for the war machine. The other is to deprive the military of the labor it needs to fight the war.
