RAYMOND LOTTA, Revolutionary communist intellectual and political economist, on The Debt Ceiling Debate, Global Crisis, and Savage Austerity. He recently wrote for Revolution, "What kind of system puts human lives on the chopping block of fiscal
austerity? This is the logic of capital. This system cannot act in
the interests of the people. It can't because it operates according to the rule of profit above all else." Read more.

"About 220 people "Walked for Choice" on Sunday, July 31 in the beastly Maryland sun in support of Dr. Leroy Carhart. Spirits were high and people had come from as far away as California as well as from Mississippi, Illinois, Kansas, Virginia, Florida and numerous other places. A good core of unapologetic young women and others turned out from the Germantown area, a number of them expressing their gratitude that Dr. Carhart came to their community." Read more here.
after a beautiful march in support of abortion rights, a group of close
to twenty of us went out for food and drink. About half way through our
evening, our waitress asked us why there were so many of us together
and what the occasion was. In response to our answer, that we were in
town to defend abortion rights and Doctor Carhart, she immediately
opened up about her own abortion story...
Now is the
time for everyone to begin talking about their abortion stories
unapologetically. Bring it out of the dark and out of the closet. Defy
the shame and the stigma. Let's celebrate and defend the lives and the
value of the female human beings who choose abortion to continue their
lives in the ways they are ready and want to live them. Let's celebrate
and defend the doctors and staff who risk everything to make that
possible. Let's create a situation where those who stalk women, who kill
doctors, who legislate the lives of women into smaller and smaller
corners and greater and greater shame feel that they have to hang their
heads and attempt to defend their hateful lunacy.
those who have turned out in Germantown! Wake up call to all those
across the country! This is the time to step to the front lines."
NEWS FLASH! Pass the word that a large pro-choice presence is needed this Sunday at 1:30 PM in front of Dr. Carhart's clinic in Germantown, MD. More info [here].
