The War on Assange Is a War on Truth
_____ | strategic-culture.org | 2020-09-22
Ron PAUL | It is dangerous to reveal the truth about the illegal and immoral things our government does with our money and in our name, and the war on journalists who dare reveal such truths is very much a bipartisan affair. Just ask Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, who was relentlessly pursued first by the Obama Administration and now by the Trump Administration for the "crime" of reporting on the crimes perpetrated by the United States government. | Assange is now literally fighting for his life, as he tries to avoid being extradited to the United States where he faces 175 years in prison for violating the "Es…

Report, Monday, September 21: Julian Assange Hearing
_____ | popularresistance.org | 2020-09-22
Monday was a frustrating day as the Assange Hearing drifted deep into a fantasy land where nobody knows or is allowed to say that people were tortured in Guantanamo Bay and under extraordinary rendition. The willingness of Judge Baraitser to accept American red lines on what witnesses can and cannot say has combined with a joint and openly stated desire by both judge and prosecution to close this case down quickly by limiting the number of witnesses, the length of their evidence, and the time allowed for closing arguments.

"Belly of the Beast": Survivors of Forced Sterilizations in California's Prisons Fight for Justice
Staff | democracynow.org | 2020-09-22
Revelations about forced hysterectomies at an ICE facility in Georgia have forced a reckoning with the long history of sterilizations in the U.S. — particularly of Black, Brown, poor and disabled people — and the way this procedure has continued in jails and prisons to the present day. We speak with Kelli Dillon, who was sterilized at the Central California Women's Facility in Chowchilla in 2001 and who is featured in the documentary "Belly of the Beast," which tells the stories of women subjected to unwanted sterilization behind bars in California. She says incarcerated women are "punished" for simpl…

It was August 2017 and Donald Trump had not yet warmed up to Kim Jong-un, North Korea's portly dictator. In fact, in typical Trumpian fashion, he was pissed at the Korean leader and, no less typically, he lashed out verbally, threatening that country with a literal hell on Earth. As he put it,…

A US Government-Funded Petition to Rewrite Thailand's Constitution

Modern US Racial Capitalism
_____ | popularresistance.org | 2020-09-22
In recent years, "racial capitalism" has ascended across the humanities and social sciences. It has arisen as a conceptual framework to understand the mutually constitutive nature of racialization and capitalist exploitation, inter alia, on a global scale, in specific localities, in discrete historical moments, in the entrenchment of the carceral state, and in the era of neoliberalization and permanent war.1 This increased interest, interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary in nature, is conveyed in the myriad race and capitalism debates…

The Case For Debt Abolition
_____ | popularresistance.org | 2020-09-22
In 2008, around the same time Lehman Brothers collapsed and the mortgage market began to melt down, I got a call telling me my student loans were in default. I remember trying to grasp the logic as I spoke to the collector. Because I didn't have money, they were increasing my principal by 19 percent. My balance ballooned, as did my monthly payments, which meant I was even more broke than before. My credit score tanked, further compounding my financial woes. | When I got involved in Occupy Wall Street a few years later, I realized my situation was hardly unique.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg's Fight for Gender Equity was for All of Us

Ruth Bader Ginsburg recognized that dismantling patriarchy was necessary not only for women's liberation, but for all of us to have the freedom to thrive regardless of gender.
