What's New: BDS impact round up for 2016
| December 24, 2016
The year 2016 will be remembered by Palestinians and supporters of Palestinian freedom, justice and equality, among other things, as Israel’s year of waging an all-out war on the Palestinian-led, global BDS movement for Palestinian rights, in a desperate attempt to crush it. In this respect, 2016 will also be remembered as the year of Israel’s spectacular failure, as BDS grew further into the mainstream.
Bullet #1346: Lessons from Richmond, California
by Sid Shniad | December 23, 2016
It seems that we are condemned to live in interesting times. Decades of neoliberalism and austerity, capped by the election of carney barker Donald Trump as president of the United States.

The Occupy Movement, Idle No More and Black Lives Matter showed people fighting back against burgeoning inequality, the continuing effects of colonialism, and out of control police violence. Recently, the Bernie Sanders campaign gathered incredible numbers of enthusiastic supporters by addressing people's economic and social concerns in a straightforward manner.

What's New: Elite Takeovers of the Vertical City
by Steve Graham | December 22, 2016

Bullet #1345: War Culture, Militarism and Racist Violence Under Trump
by Henry A. Giroux | December 21, 2016
When history repeats itself with a vengeance, it generally signals a crisis of memory, historical consciousness and civic literacy. The ghosts of the past disappear in a comforting somnolence and a deadening market-driven culture of consumption, privatization and individualization. As a mode of moral witnessing, memory withers, lost in forms of historical and social amnesia that usher in the dark clouds of authoritarianism, albeit in updated forms.
