Looking for answers, creating alternatives - Connexions Other Voices March 25, 2018
March 25, 2018The March 25, 2018 issue of Other Voices, the Connexions newsletter, features people who are questioning and challenging the way the world works and trying to create better alternatives.
Phyllis Omido, a courageous environmental activist in Kenya who faced arrest and physical intimidation, has led a successful campaign to force a lead-smelting company that was poisoning residents to shut down.
Justin Podur challenges the way the corporate media systematically spread lies and misinformation about Venezuela, a country faced by a systemic campaign of economic sabotage led by local elites and supported by the United States and its allies.
Judith Deutsch reviews Norman Finkelsteins new book on Gaza. She asks: why are states and corporations assumed to have a "right to exist" but people - specifically, in this case, the people of Gaza - are not said to have a right to exist.
Bruce Lesnick asks what is the best way to organize against the mobilizations of the right. Most crucially, he asks, "how can we best harness the power of the 99% - the working class majority - in this ideological, social and economic battle?"
The book of the week is "Creating an Ecological Society: Toward a Revolutionary Transformation" by Fred Magdoff and Chris Williams. They set out to show that it is possible to envision and create a society that is genuinely democratic, equitable, and ecologically sustainable. And that it is possible - not one moment too soon - for society to change fundamentally and be brought into harmony with nature.
