2011-10-26 occupy oakland-thFor 30 years, American workers have been under assault. For decades, there were very few fight backs, and even fewer successes. Between 1973 and 2007, private sector unionization decreased by over 75 per cent and wealth inequality increased by 40 per cent. Strike levels fell to record lows. Politically, things shifted ever further to the right as the Democrats and Republicans fell over each other to carry out the wishes of the capitalists.

USA: Labor Defeats SB5 in Ohio. Photo: ProgressOhioOn Tuesday, November 8th, Ohio workers went to the polls and repealed Gov. John Kasich's (R-OH) infamous, anti-union Senate Bill 5 (SB5). The lopsided 61%-39% vote represents a major victory for organized labor, which harnessed its significant resources to help achieve the victory. Labor spent $2.6 million to send out 825,000 pieces of mail, flyer over 3,000 worksites with over 4.1 million leaflets, and knocked on over 1 million doors.

López Obrador será el candidato de las izquierdas para el 2012. Esto ha elevado la moral y animado a millones de trabajadores, se respira un ambiente de felicidad en estos momentos; el temor a que una maniobra le arrebatara el triunfo a AMLO siempre estuvo presente (aunque formalmente se le declarará candidato oficial de la izquierda hasta febrero del año siguiente). Marcelo Ebrard ha reconocido su derrota queriendo mostrar una imagen de un demócrata congruente.

مقدمه‌ی مترجم: این شماره‌ی «مبارزه طبقاتی» را که می‌بستیم با تناقض جالبی مواجه بودیم. در این فکر بودیم که مقاله‌ای راجع به یونان در نشریه قرار بدهیم یا نه. مشکل این‌جا بود که هر ساعت که می‌گذشت تحولات یونان شدت می‌گرفت و مطمئن بودیم هر مقاله‌ای ترجمه کنیم یا بنویسیم، تا زمان چاپ نشریه رویدادها بیشتر شتاب گرفته‌اند و مقاله قدیمی شده. این در مورد مقاله‌ی حاضر نیز صدق می‌کند گرچه به نظر ما تحلیل بنیادین نهفته در آن و راه‌حلی که نسبت به اوضاع ارائه می‌دهد باعث شده همچنان قابل خواندن باشد.
