This week on CounterSpin: The killing of two Western hostages by a CIA drone strike in Pakistan led some US media to re- engage debate over US drone policy. But media’s discussion is over how and where drones should be used—not whether they should be. We’ll talk to law professor Marjorie Cohn, author of, most recently, Drones and Targeted Killing: Legal, Moral and Geopolitical Issues.  

OTHER WORLDS IS HIRING: ANOTHER HAITI IS POSSIBLE COORDINATOR

April 17, 2015

JOB ANNOUNCEMENT: ANOTHER HAITI IS POSSIBLE COORDINATOR

The Another Haiti Is Possible Coordinator’s primary work will be to co-plan and coordinate – following the lead of Haitian allies - an international campaign to protect land rights against massive grabs being promulgated by foreign investors, Haitian elite, and Haitian government (with strong backing of the US, World Bank, and IDB). The campaign will both fortify Haitians’ efforts and add global muscle. The coordinator’s work will guide popular and public education, strategy development, media work, movement support, network-building, coordination of international (mainly US-based) advocacy, and organizing. It will also involve a political campaign against one or two targets, be it/they a corporation, US government, or IFI. Because Other Worlds is so small, a focus will be on finding key players who can carry various pieces of the work.ongly encouraged to apply.

Organized by the Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN) and the National Indigenous Congress (CNI), the first annual Festival Mundial de las Resistencias y Rebeldías contra el Capitalismo, or the Global Festival for Anti-Capitalist Resistance and Rebellion, was held in central and southern Mexico over a two-week period at the end of 2014 and beginning of 2015. The event’s subtitle sums up its purpose well: “While those from above destroy, those from below rebuild.”

Ted Fertik is terrified by the possibility that US unions may soon lose the agency shop. I don’t blame him — it’s a pretty scary prospect. Most unions today are not well positioned to mitigate the potential impact on their organizational and financial wherewithal.

If the recent experience of AFSCME in Wisconsin is any guide, they should expect to see a substantial portion of their membership base evaporate more or less overnight. Income from dues and fees would be drastically reduced, and unions would struggle to fund many of their current day-to-day activities. I certainly don’t relish the thought that this could happen sometime in the very near future.

Despite these completely valid fears, one should not make the claim, as Fertik does, that “the possibility of the demise of the Wagner Act might mean the demise of worker organization tout court.” To begin with, the end of agency shop would not spell the death of the Wagner Act, which would still allow workers (union and non-union alike) to engage in protected concerted activity, as well as the recognition of members-only unions.
