Juan González: Reflections on 40 Years of Fighting for Racial and Social Justice in Journalism

Democracy now - Tue, 12/06/2022 - 13:00
Democracy Now! co-host Juan González recently spoke at the Columbia School of Journalism in the first of three “farewell” speeches in New York before he moves to Chicago. Juan will also be speaking in New York on Friday, December 9, at the CUNY School of Labor and Urban Studies and Monday, December 12, at the CUNY Grad Center. In his speech at the Columbia School of Journalism, Juan talked about his atypical journalism career and his years as a student activist and organizer with the Young Lords. Juan said, “I have been grappling now for more than 50 years — initially as an activist, then for decades as a journalist and a student of history — with the burning issue of how oppressed and marginalized people can best create and disseminate a narrative that truly reflects their lives, not just accepting the simple-minded, stereotypical and often denigrating narratives of them fashioned by those with greater power and wealth.”

Angela Davis on UC Strike, Abolition, Palestine & Lessons on a Life Fighting Racial Capitalism

Democracy now - Fri, 12/02/2022 - 13:00
A web-only discussion with Angela Davis, the world-renowned abolitionist, author and activist. Davis reflects on her remarkable life and struggles ahead. Davis recently released a new edition of her 1974 autobiography, first published and edited by Toni Morrison nearly 50 years ago. The book details Davis’s early life, from growing up in a section of Birmingham, Alabama, known as Dynamite Hill due to the frequency of bombings by the Ku Klux Klan, to her work with the Black Panther Party and the U.S. Communist Party. It also follows her 16-month incarceration, during which she faced the death penalty and was eventually acquitted on all charges, which influenced Davis’s focus thereafter on transforming the criminal justice system and building a movement for abolition.

Biden Sides with Big Business & Urges Congress to Block Major Freight Rail Strike

Democracy now - Tue, 11/29/2022 - 13:00
In labor news, President Biden has sided with big business and has urged Congress to intervene to block freight rail workers from going on strike, saying it could devastate the economy. On Monday, Biden asked lawmakers to quickly pass legislation to impose a labor deal that has been opposed by the majority of freight rail workers. Ron Kaminkow, a locomotive engineer and organizer for Railroad Workers United, spoke to Democracy Now! last night. “We could have seen Biden actually opt for telling Congress he would like to see Congress pass legislation that mediates an end to the conflict under which more favorable terms to the workers, which is to say a handful of sick days,” Kaminkow said. “And that’s what this has come down to.”

On the final official day of the U.N. climate summit in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, we get an assessment of negotiations on a “loss and damage” fund, and more, from Yeb Saño, Greenpeace Southeast Asia executive director and former Philippines chief climate negotiator. “Establishing this fund is an expression of human solidarity,” from countries in the Global North to those “who did not cause this problem but bear the brunt of its impact,” Saño says.
