US LABOR, GREECE, AKBANK, CITADEL CAPITAL
The fight to escape from under the iron grip of FASCIST led SEIU and former Andy Stern gang MAJOR DEMOCRATIC/OBOOMA SUPPORTER nominal union, continues unabated in California.
Here's the latest chapter in this ongoing challenge between a CRIMINAL FRONT organization called SEIU and attempts to organize a new labor union, NUHW:
And, here's NUHW website for more updates, details, specifics, etc.:
Behind this seemingly solitary struggle, however, exists a much LARGER context, namely, to wrest away, threaten, control over national and international organized labor institutions and their resources and thus POTENTIALLY CHANGE their policies which currently SUPPORTS PRIVATIZATION HERE AND ABROAD, tax subsidy for private industry, investing labor's pension funds in private corporations and support of the Democratic Party, to name but a few of the most important class contradictions.
As far as I know, however, NONE of the above unions YET have come out ACTIVELY AND OPENLY AGAINST, IN OPPOSITION TO, their NATIONAL AFL-CIA AND SEIU LEADERSHIP ON ANY OF THE ABOVE POLICIES, INCLUDING LABOR'S ABDICATION OF SINGLE PAYER HEALTH INSURANCE.
Nor US labor's NON-EXISTENT support, recognition, acknowledgment for Greek opposition.
And, FOR United Suckers and Assholes EYES ONLY, since others elsewhere know it already, here is a recent video report from the latest Greek CP LED labor demonstrations and their UNITED FRONT:
Returning back from Greece to here.
I am fully aware of the intensity and efforts involved in a labor battle such as that between NUHW/SEIU.
It is enormous, an all consuming one in terms of time, energy, attention, focus and resources.
But, STILL, it is NOT an excuse for NOT taking a PRINCIPLED CLASS POSITION in the above issues in OPPOSITION TO THEIR NATIONAL LEADERSHIP, AFL-CIA AND SEIU.
Because ALL issues above supersede, determine, impact, what happens on a local, individual level and a single employee, employer, industry, job site.
NUHW can win the battle and lose the war, which is precisely what is happening and will most everywhere.
In relation to the above, as a followup to articles I have been reporting for some time on my posts, the latest episode in the happy and profitable partnership between Citigroup and Turkey's Akbank, which, of course, was aided, helped and facilitated by United Suckers and Assholes through their taxpayer largess to our NAZI Citigroup/Exxon/Morgan Obooma Dictatorship:
And, here's another relatively newly minted investment group OPENLY, proudly exhorting and advertising to the world the wonders and advantages of MIDDLE EAST emerging markets/speculative bubble, below, BASED IN EGYPT, Citadel Capital:
And, who, pray tell, represents Citadel Capital??
Well, here's their investment "team" from their own website, well connected to EFG-Hermes, Citigroup and a few other notables:
