Looks like the Greens actually are going to have a strong socialist candidate running in their 2020 presidential primary. I was worried about whether or not they'd give another Stein among the typical loons in the primary, who is too afraid to call out the system and defend the Greens' eco-socialist platform. Howie Hawkins isn't.




America the Barbaric

Rapes, murders, beatings, stabbings, mutilations and arson are rampant. Pleas for help, scrawled in blood, stain the walls from prisoners held in solitary confinement. Fifteen suicides have been recorded in the last 15 months.This is not the description of a torture chamber in el-Sisi’s Egypt or Bin Salman’s Saudi Arabia. Nor is it about the abuse of detainees at the notorious Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, the prison camp at Guantanamo Bay or a CIA black site.These are the nightmare conditions in the Alabama state-run prison system, described in a Justice Department report released this week. They constitute a gross violation of the US Constitution’s Eighth Amendment ban on cruel and unusual punishment.More than 2,000 photos of abuse in one Alabama prison given to the media by the Southern Poverty Law Center in advance of the report’s release depict the gruesome reality of the conditions detailed in hundreds of interviews with prisoners and their families conducted by federal investigators over more than two years.


Brexit or Not: Workers Have Their Own Battles to Fight

The Brexit pantomime threatens to fracture the traditional political set-up of the British ruling class. Meanwhile the whole issue is diverting attention from the dire situation experienced by the working class. Theresa May has announced that austerity is over but the massive spending cuts that have been implemented over the last decade are not going to be reversed.It's a Bosses’ Crisis — but Workers SufferWorking class people have seen reduced in-work benefits, cuts to unemployment and disability allowances, abolition or paring down of a whole range of local government services and amenities, including the cancellation of school and house building programmes. Inadequate funding has pushed areas of public health and education to the brink of collapse. Whether it’s called Universal Credit or Job Seekers’ Allowance, people without paid work have to find a way through a demeaning maze of bureaucratic hoops to get the measly ‘benefit’ they are entitled to. The massive rise in the use of food banks is set to increase, the shortage of “affordable housing” will remain and reports of hidden and not-so-hidden homelessness will continue.

Based Berliners

>Surrounding land left highly toxic after Grenfell Tower inferno

fucking quality

>The Latest: Warren says Dems need more than anti-Trump cry

water is wet



>Berlin activists march to demand city seize housing from landlords

Liberals are losing their shit over this, using alarmist rethorics, seriously claiming, that most buildings are actually not empty and not used for the sake of speculation and that it will backfire.

Meanwhile I, an architect student, am constantly tasked to design one luxury condo after another. That's the demand right there. The rents haven't peaked yet.

And there won't be any new apartments either, since it is literally unconstitutional. The black zero, you are not allowed to spent more than you earn. And it doesn't matter if the revenue pays off 10 years later, it's not the business of the state to invest. The market shall do it, too bad the market and it's invisible hand have done jackshit. They demand luxury condos.



Fucking Merkel and the rest of the neolibs need to be assassinated.



calm down FBI


>Berlin activists march to demand city seize housing from landlords

<The Eternal Socdem Kraut is actually mobilizing

N-n-n-nani!? Please tell me Aufstehen or someone are at least attempting to build a sustained political movement out of this.



>How climate change is forcing vulnerable children into sex trafficking

Anyone remember the last handwrining "disaster antipedophilia" hoax wave?
