Supreme Court Case On Farmworker Protections Could Harm All Regulation
_____ | popularresistance.org | 2021-03-24
The legacy of Cesar Chavez has been getting another look in recent months.

When Rank And File Postal Workers Whipped Bosses, Union Leaders, And Richard Nixon
_____ | popularresistance.org | 2021-03-24
The day after St. Patrick's Day in New York City was often little more than an intense, city-wide hangover. But on March 18, 1970 residents of the Big Apple awoke to more than just a headache. Thousands of local Postal workers were on the picket line in defiance of both Federal Law which prohibited strikes by government employees and their own union leadership. Within days business in the commercial and financial center of the nation ground to a halt in those pre-electronic communications days and the strike spread to more than 30 cities with 200,000 off the job. It was a big deal. A very big deal.

Atlanta Shootings: Sex, Race & the Politics of Repression
David Rosen | counterpunch.org | 2021-03-24
One of the earliest media reports about the Atlanta-area shootings quoted the Cherokee County spokesperson Baker who said that Long "apparently has an issue, what he considers a sex addiction, and sees these locations … [as] a temptation for him that he wanted to eliminate." He noted that Long was "pretty much fed up and kind of at the end of his rope." And added, "Yesterday was a really bad day for him and this is what he did."

How Australia Ended Regular Mass Shootings: Gun Reforms After 1996 Massacre Could Be Model for U.S
Staff | democracynow.org | 2021-03-24
As the United States struggles to make sense of two new mass shootings — in Atlanta, Georgia, and Boulder, Colorado — we look at one country that fought to change its culture of gun violence and succeeded. In April of 1996, a gunman opened fire on tourists in Port Arthur, Tasmania, killing 35 people and wounding 23 more. Just 12 days after the grisly attack and the public outcry it sparked, Australia announced new gun control measures. "We had a massacre about once a year," Rebecca Peters, an international arms control advocate and one of the leaders of the campaign to reform Australia's gun laws, tol…

How the NRA's Radical Anti-Gun-Control Ideology Became GOP Dogma & Still Warps Debate
Staff | democracynow.org | 2021-03-24
The massacre in a Boulder grocery store came just after a Colorado judge ruled in favor of the National Rifle Association's challenge to the city's ban on assault weapons, which was passed in 2018 after this type of weapon was used in the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida. Despite increasingly regular mass shootings, the NRA has pushed for expanded gun rights since the 1970s and insisted that more guns, not fewer, would prevent gun deaths. "The NRA's ideology is something that they've convinced the overwhelming majority of elected officials in the GOP, especially on the national level, to believe," says investig…
