Marine Le Pen, Donald Trump and the Emergence of New Right-Wing Movements 22.4.2017 Truthout - All Articles
Globalization's contradictions have changed the political and ideological landscape of capitalist societies, introducing a new right-wing radicalism that has adopted the "antiglobalization" rhetoric of the left, says political economist C.J. Polychroniou. In this context, the left needs to rethink strategies for a new globalized economy, as a return to the old nation-state is not plausible.

Fear Spreads in Immigrant Communities 31.3.2017 Truthout - All Articles
There is "widespread fear" in the undocumented community, says Pablo Alvarado, executive director of the National Day Laborer Organizing Network (NDLON), whose work in the first two months of the Trump administration has focused on keeping people from panicking while informing them of their rights and how to defend themselves if US immigration agents show up at their workplace or home or intercept them on their way to work or while taking their children to school. Alvarado is often compared to Cesar Chavez in terms of his leadership and organizing power in the undocumented community. NDLON represents tens of thousands of day-laborers. I spoke to Alvarado on March 10. Dennis Bernstein: Help us put a face on what it looks like now at ground level. What are the discussions like in the community? Give us a sense of how people are responding to this first salvo, or series of salvos from this anti-immigrant administration. Pablo Alvarado: Yes, well, there is widespread fear. And, because of the aggressiveness ...

The impacts on the economy, some estimate, will run into billions of dollars. (Photo: Unsplash ; Edited: LW / TO) This story was published thanks to readers like you.
