I hate the idiotic, toothless, reactionary unions in this stupid country.
GM porkies close a plant
instead of attacking the porks responsible, the union blames and attacks fellow workers in Mexico who are literally striking right now against the porkies
This is why it is not enough to simply unionize, you absolutely must build class consciousness as well, otherwise unions become pawns of the capitalists they are designed to oppose.

Erdogan will opportunistically use anyone and everyone that will aid them, be it NATO, Russia, China, so on. There was a story about a year back of Turkey receiving American jets, handing them over to Russians for modifications, then later using them to airstrike US allies in Syria. They are snakes, pure and simple.

End of shutdown: workers left with debts, bad credit and shattered trust
Even as he announced an end to the longest government shutdown in US history, Donald Trump warned that a new shutdown could begin in just three weeks “if we don’t get a fair deal from Congress”.That threat meant that clouds of uncertainty still remain in place for hundreds of thousands of government workers and unknown others whose lives were interrupted or derailed by a shutdown precipitated and prolonged by the president’s demand for a border wall, which he redoubled on Friday.

Portland Responds With Solidarity After Alt-Right Attack on IWW Hall
Last weekend, Joey Gibson led members of far-Right gangs Patriot Prayer and the Proud Boys in two attempts at harassing people at the local Portland IWW union hall. Each time, members of the community has been on hand to push back against Gibson and his far-Right trolls, however Gibson and his followers’ violent rhetoric, talk of weapons, vague online plans to “visit” people at their homes, and threats against everyone they consider “ANTIFA” to Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler, has only escalated.As many people have pointed it, it seems bizarre that Joey Gibson and members of his associated groups can continue to make very real threats of violence, but never face any sort of legal recourse or threat of arrest from the police.

The Ghosts of a Fascist Past
On a blustery day in October 2016, a group of men wearing the traditional “Bocksai suits” popular in the interwar era gathered in the central square of sleepy Pomaz. The square had just been renamed “Trianon Square,” after a much-hated peace treaty that Hungary was forced to sign at the end of the 1914–18 conflict. With much ceremony, the men revealed a new monument: a map of greater Hungary as it was before its wartime defeat and division, thus highlighting the ethnic Hungarians who were left outside its present-day borders.For the past ten years, the Hungarian government has been steadily rewriting the country’s national history — crafting another rooted in the “glory days” between the World Wars, when Hungary was ruled by right-wing autocrat (and ally of Hitler) Miklós Horthy. This was the Hungary that came after the fall of the Austro-Hungarian empire and before the Soviet occupation, in a period marked by antisemitism, genocide, and mass executions.

As Long Beach Luxury Development Booms, The Poor Get Left Behind
It was a stifling mid-August afternoon when Jennifer learned she had until the end of the year to move out of her cramped studio apartment in the East Village of downtown Long Beach. She suspected the eviction was coming. For the past year, she had been looking for a new place as her landlord slowly remodeled her modest building, the place she’s called home for more than 13 years. He knew she could not pay the increase in rent, so he told her it was time to go. Jennifer, who is in her 50s, qualified for Section 8 low-income housing and searched futilely for an opening in the area. There was nothing she could afford to live in and not a single Section 8 apartment was vacant.

Oppose French unions’ attempts to strangle the “yellow vest” protests!
Amid a violent state crackdown on their movement, the “yellow vests” are seeking ways to rally broader support in the working class against Macron and the European Union (EU). They have overwhelmingly rejected the fraudulent “great national debate” offered by Macron. The decisive question now is: on which political perspective can the “yellow vests,” and more broadly workers across Europe, fight for their demands for social equality, increased wages, improved social conditions and against war?Attempts to divert the developing opposition in the working class from an orientation to an international struggle of the working class for power, against capitalism and for the building of socialism amount to nothing more than a trap. This is what Olivier Besancenot of the Pabloite New Anticapitalist Party (NPA) is doing when he proposes that the unions, who are viewed with deep distrust by most “yellow vest” protesters, take over the movement.

Bernie Sanders vs Kamala the Jailer and Her Corporate Backers

So? The masses are anti-USA. The post-Ottoman, antitheist bourgeoisie is the reason Turkey joined NATO, not the religious proletariat. Erdogan comes from a different class and a different religious background and simply inherited a NATO membership. Turkey has always been trying to pivot more and more towards Russia and China without provoking US regime change (which almost happened in 2007, in 2013 and in 2016).
