Longshore Workers Honor Picket Line, Shut Down War Cargo Shipper in Oakland (tags)

This can be an important first step toward the mobilization of workers power to shut down the war machine, but that requires a sharp struggle against the bourgeois politics of the antiwar groups and union officialdom. The OEA calls for money for schools not for war, as if it were a matter of budget priorities, and the PAC poster made a social-patriotic pitch to “Bring the Troops Home Now, and give them the care they need.” Such “peace is patriotic” rhetoric is a staple of the UPFJ, but all the antiwar coalitions make similar appeals to garner support from Democratic Party liberals. Revolutionaries and class-conscious workers, in contrast, emphasize that this imperialist war must be opposed by class war.

Misleaders’ Strategy Undermines Grocery Strike (tags)

"The strategy of relying on token informational pickets in in northern California, rather than extending the strike, is part of a loosing strategy by the UFCW bureaucrats that is defeating the strike. With a defeat in southern California it will be easy to extract concessions here. Victory will only come through real solidarity, with a militant rank and file class struggle leadership in the union that challenges the career bureaucrats for the continued life of the union!" --Steve Argue

The significance of the strike is based in the issue of health care. We are the only industrialized country to not have health care and the union estimates about 60 million went some time with out having any health care last year. This number is growing based the deteriation of the tiny bit of basic rights and benefits we have. It is time for us to not be on the defensive of these issues and begin to fight back.
