Seeing Red Radio: Health Care & Financial “Reform”, Stop-Loss Hip-Hop, E. Jerusalem Building Boom and Arizona 2.3
Obama’s recently passed Health Care “Reform” Bill, and Christopher Dodd’s proposed Financial “Reform” legislation most recently exemplify the pro-corporate credentials of the Democratic party, solidifying their place as the US ruling class’ Team B. We then offer the hip-hop song that got Spc. Marc Hall imprisoned and facing a court martial, when he dared to call out the US Army’s disingenuous “stop-loss” policy, which forces members of the US Army to remain in the service beyond their contracted enlistments. We expose the the full extent of Israel’s plans for East Jerusalem, which seeks to effectively alter “facts on the ground”, and displace any hope of the “Peace Process”. We highlight the proposed legislation in Arizona which if passed will make every undocumented worker in the state a criminal “trespasser”. Lastly, we feature a day in Revolutionary History, March 25th, and remember the horror of one of America’s worst industrial disasters, the Triangle Shirtwaist

Sunday’s coup by the Honduran military and the international response it invoked reveals a shifting dynamic between the global South and the continued hegemony of the North Atlantic. After 13 years of hard-fought struggle the Smithfield Workers finally win their first contract. Recent unemployment statistics reveal a lengthening recession in the United States. We return to Michael A. Lebowitz’s book, Build It Now: Socialism in the 21st Century for a look at Karl Marx’s disrobing of classical political economy in his master work Capital.

The Two-State Solution is a non-starter with the Zionist regime of Netanyahu. On this edition of SRR we examine the proposal for a secular one-state that represents all of the people of historic Palestine. We also expose the heinous lies of pro-corporate opponents of the Employee Free Choice Act, including the glaring statistic that reveals the number of unfair labor practice filings with the National Labor Review Board against unions amounts to “only 42 cases of misconduct over seven decades—while there are nearly 30,000 unfair labor practices against workers by companies every year.” So much for “union intimidation”… We also commemorate the horrific end of the first acquisition of state power by the working class, the Paris Commune, when it was violently suppressed in 1871.
A member of the editorial board of the International Socialist Review, Sherry Wolf spoke at Marxism Today 2007 in Melbourne, Australia and we feature excerpts of her talk, “The Case for Revolution”. Also, we cover the plight of Afghan children forced to survive on garbage heaps, Afghani reconstruction monies pilfered by corrupt aid agencies, and the continuing efforts to boycott, divest and sanction the Apartheid regime of Israel. Finally, Noam Chomsky gives his take on Obama’s pro-Israel hawk appointments and his unprecedented “obsequiousness” to AIPAC.
