Even Trump had to back down. The heartbreaking images and audio recordings of migrant Mexican and Central American children being separated from their parents after having been arrested crossing the U.S.-Mexican border, and the chorus of bipartisan complaints, made continuing the policy of family separations a political liability. However, ending the policy, which will not apparently affect those families that have already separated, leaves the bulk of the U.S.’s anti-immigrant policies intact... READ MORE

Quote of Note

     This July marks the anniversary of the victorious 1934 truckers strike in Minneapolis, a key achievement in building industrial unionism in the US.  Below Farrell Dobbs, leader of Teamsters local 574 and of the Communist League of America, details the broad but precise organization built by the workers to defeat the Twin Cities’ corporate elite:

“When the sun rose on May 16 1934, the headquarters of Chicago Avenue was a beehive of activity. Union carpenters and plumbers were installing gas stoves, sinks, and serving counters. The Cooks and Waiters union sent experts on mass cooking [...] Working in two twelve-hour shifts, over 100 volunteers served 4000 to 5000 people daily [...] Committees were set up to promote material aid. They solicited friendly grocers for staples to be served in the commissary and to help out the needy families of strikers [...] The union’s medical staff included Dr. McCrimmon and two interns from the University if Minnesota hospital who volunteered their services during off hours. Three trained nurses headed up a larger volunteer staff that provided efficient care [...] About a score of skilled auto mechanics had turned to, bringing their tools with them, to keep the strikers cars in working order…”
