Activists in the Philippines, Guatemala and Palestine are arrested and detained for their political beliefs. The international community demands the release of all political prisoners.
“We stand ready to act in our respective legislatures to support the movement that is growing around the world to make Amazon pay.”
The growth of CEO Jeff Bezos’s astronomical wealth — up $100 billion since March, now surpassing that of any other human in history — is directly proportional to Amazon’s human and environmental costs: his corporation mistreats its workers, wrecks the climate, and undermines the public institutions underpinning our democracies along the way along the way.
Biden has a host of issues ahead of him come January – including a healthcare crisis and ethnic and racial violence.
Biden and Trump may seem like they’re polar opposites but they’re not.

One half-century later, the Progressive International (PI) is once again calling on the conscience of mankind against the crimes of US imperialism.
Returning to the major crises we face at this historic moment, all are international, and two internationals are forming to confront them. One is opening today: the Progressive International. The other has been taking shape under the leadership of Trump’s White House, a Reactionary International comprising the world’s most reactionary states.
In short, we face a simple choice: Internationalism or Extinction. Either we form a common front of workers and peoples that can reclaim the world from this tiny set of oligarchs and dictators. Or they will continue to amass wealth and power, watching the world burn outside their window.
