What are the Alternatives to Neoliberal Globalization? (tags)

We, the Filipino American community in the United States and their allies express our militant solidarity with Hanjin Shipyard workers in their struggle to unionize and thus end their deplorable working conditions which has led to at least 24 deaths.

We are appalled at the slow response of the Philippine Senate and the Executive branch and their failure to act on the continuing fatal accidents and deaths of workers at Hanjin Shipbuilding. While we hold Hanjin, a South Korean transnational corporation employing 15,000 workers in the Philippines, directly accountable for the extremely unacceptable living and working conditions of Filipino workers, we equally hold the Philippine government complicit for acting against the country's national interests and against Filipino workers interests. We demand that the Philippine Government compel the Hanjin Shipyard company to clean up the docks and work areas, ensure worker safety, enforce environmental laws and provide just wages and benefits to Filipino workers.

Down with Senate Bill 2611! (tags)
In recent months millions of immigrants have been in the streets protesting the vicious attacks that Bush and Congress are preparing to legislate against them, while local governments also formulate attacks. Behind this reactionary onslaught is the fact that the capitalists want immigrant labor, but they want it without rights so that they can more profitably exploit it. They know that without the same rights as other workers the immigrant workers have little chance in effectively resisting the rotten wages and conditions they impose on them. And they know that lack of rights makes it very difficult for immigrant workers to actively support and participate in strikes and other struggles of the "legal" U.S. workers.

Infamous Slumlord Violates Probation (tags)
Infamous Convicted Slumlord, Monica Hujazi, who pled no contest to 10 violations of the Los Angeles County building health and saftety codes, last year, and is serving 3 years probation for those violations, is up to her old tricks again. Monica Helena Hujazi, 44, puportedly owns a slum empire in excess of 80 tennement style buildings, mostly in the San Francisco Bay area. She is expanding her empire by investing in dilapadated slum type buildings in the Los Angeles area as well. However, residents in Los Angeles are aware of Mrs. Hujazi's tactics and are organizing and fighting back in what can only be called a mass renters revolt. Her latest debacle, a old art deco apartment building, of 3 stories and 72 units, is litterally rotting to the ground. Despite the deplorable condition perpetuated on the low income renters of the Hollywood Area of Los Angeles, her rents are constantly escalating, in gross violation of the Rent Stabilization Ordinance of Los Angeles. A small, one room bachelors apartment at the Alexandria Court Apartments, now costs on or about $1,000.00 per month, and a one bedroom upwards of $1,400.00. She markets her building as a "luxury" apartment, by installing granite coutertops, marble flooring in the bathrooms, and new plumbing fixtures. But these efforts are only cosemetic, she does not renovate the buildings structural, plumbing, electrical, heating, or any other renovations at all. These tennants live in conditions reminescent of the slum tenements of New York, at the begining of the 19th century, complete with rats, mice, cock roaches, fleas, ticks, spiders, and other guests of her apartmets. The residents at the Alexandria building, now lovingly refer to thier home as the "Hujazi Hilton".
