Protesters inside the Wisconsin State Capitol on Feb. 28, 2015.Photo: Ben HerrenbruckOn Feb. 10, 2011, students and workers began to lead the historic occupation of the state Capitol building in Madison, Wis., to oppose the racist, union busting, Act 10 legislation.Ushering in one of the largest uprisings in the U.S. since the 1930’s, for weeks tens of thousands of workers and oppressed peoples occupied buildings and marched in Madison in efforts to kill Act 10. Dozens of solidarity actions took place worldwide, including a one-day shutdown of the West Coast docks by International Longshore and Warehouse Union members.Ultimately, moderate or reactionary union leaders tied to the Democratic and Republican parties maneuvered to steer the state Capitol occupation into the electoral arena. They launched a failed recall campaign against Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker to counter various sectors of the working class who wanted direct actions, including shutting down various capitalist industries or engaging in a full-blown general strike. Act 10 was ultimately rammed through the racist, right-wing, Wisconsin legislature and signed into law by Walker.Since this major defeat for working-class and oppressed peoples, over the past five years Wall Street’s political servants in the Legislature and Walker himself have engaged in vicious Jim Crow capitalist austerity, overturning or eviscerating numerous laws benefiting workers and communities, laws that were won as concessions to the masses through direct class struggle in the 1960’s, the 1930’s and before.These included the biggest cuts to K-12 and higher education in Wisconsin history and the expansion of charter schools statewide. Numerous forms of deregulation and privatization were implemented. Environmental protections were reduced.Most provisions of prevailing wage were reduced, “right-to-work” for less was implemented, tenure for faculty in the University of Wisconsin system was eliminated and civil service protections were gutted. Unemployment benefits were reduced while drug testing for welfare recipients was implemented. Planned Parenthood was defunded.Capitalist austerity creating gravediggersBut because they’ve fought back, the masses in Wisconsin are learning.In his “Lecture On The 1905 Revolution” to a gathering of working-class youth in Zurich, Switzerland, V.I. Lenin wrote: “The real education of the masses can never be separated from the independent, the political and particularly from the revolutionary struggle of the masses themselves. Only the struggle educates the exploited class. Only the struggle discloses to it the magnitude of its own power, widens its horizon, enhances its abilities, clarifies its mind, forges its will; and therefore, even reactionaries had to admit that the year 1905, the year of the struggle, the ‘mad year,’ definitely buried patriarchal Russia.” (“The Revolution of 1905,” Jan. 1917)The austerity in Wisconsin has been fought by the masses every step of the way, in particular by those who were youth and students in 2011 but are now militant and class conscious workers. Many are becoming leaders, identify with socialism or are growing into communists.These emerging leaders have known nothing but austerity and war, and have no future under capitalism. They are beginning to move to offensive battles as they learn that for the working class to achieve any victory and in particular to achieve socialism, the masses must not be locked into a series of unending defensive battles.This is bolstered by a new wave of militant, oppressed youth and students in Black Lives Matter formations such as Young, Gifted and Black in Madison and the Coalition For Justice in Milwaukee, immigrant rights organizations such as Youth Empowered in the Struggle (YES) and Indigenous youth fighting for their sacred lands and artifacts. Other highlights of class struggle include the successful Amalgamated Transit Union Local 998 and United Auto Workers Local 833 strikes in 2015.These developments since 2011 are part of an uneven but ongoing process of longtime workers and oppressed peoples across the state becoming increasingly more skeptical of the Democratic Party’s ability to deliver any relief for the masses. They are looking for alternatives to the absolute misery and destruction inflicted on them by the banks, corporations and their political servants. Any illusions that the capitalist system can be reformed have been shattered.In the “Communist Manifesto,” Karl Marx wrote: “What the bourgeoisie produces, above all, are its own gravediggers. Its fall and the victory of the proletariat are equally inevitable.”It’s in this spirit that, despite the unrelenting austerity in Wisconsin at the present time, during the first week of the five-year anniversary of the 2011 state Capitol occupation, numerous class battles were raging and erupting, including the 50,000-strong “Day Without Latinos” on Feb. 18 in Madison.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
SHARE Pork Producers Applaud USDA Enhanced Efforts on African Swine Fever Prevention Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – May 16, 2019 The National Pork Producers Council (NPPC) applauded additional measures announced Thursday by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to enhance its African swine fever (ASF) preparedness efforts with the implementation of a surveillance plan. The risk of ASF – an animal disease affecting only pigs and with no human health or food safety risks – is growing as outbreaks continue throughout China and other parts of Asia. There are no reported cases of ASF in the United States.“U.S. pork producers are already suffering as a result of numerous trade disputes with top-importing countries, and an outbreak of ASF in the United States would be devastating,” said David Herring, a pork producer from Lillington, N.C., and president of NPPC. “That’s why it’s so important we have a strong surveillance program, to ensure early notification of any spread of the virus. With no vaccination available, prevention is our only defense. We thank USDA for today’s announcement and look forward to working with the agency to strengthen safeguards to protect our animals.”Among the enhanced ASF surveillance efforts announced by USDA, the agency will:• add ASF testing to its existing classical swine fever surveillance;• work with state and federal partners to identify and investigate incidents involving sick or dead feral swine to determine if they should be tested for ASF or other foreign animal diseases;• work with officials in Canada and Mexico on a North American coordinated approach to ASF defense, response, and trade maintenance; and• increase detector dog teams with U.S. Customs and Border Protection to sniff out illegal products at key U.S. commercial sea and airports.

Halimi’s alleged murderers are currently on trial.The ruling was the result of Choc’s appeal against a court order issued at the request of Halimi’s family on 20 May for the withdrawal of all copies of the issue from newsstands on the grounds of “invasion of privacy.” Halimi, 23 was kidnapped and tortured to death in 2006 by a gang known as the “Barbarians.” The photograph was sent to the family by the kidnappers, who allegedly chose the victim because he was Jewish.“We express our utmost respect for the grief of Halimi’s family and our horror at the way this young man was tortured,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We nonetheless believe that the publication of information and photos about this case, which concerns us as citizens, will help to shed light on the monstrous nature of this tragedy. We therefore think the court took the wrong decision.“Yesterday’s ruling seems to soften the original court order but continues to accept the position taken by the prosecutor’s office, namely that a shocking photo should not be published. As a result, the offending photo has to be blacked out, not just on the cover but also on the inside pages, where it appears in four places.“The appeal court’s ruling is all the more paradoxical because Ilan Halimi’s mother herself objected to the decision to hold the trial of his accused murderers behind closed doors and because the photo was already published by the media in 2006 without occasioning any legal action.“The magazine has meanwhile been penalised by the withdrawal of this issue from sale since 20 May. The conditions for lifting the ban are not realistic. It is very unlikely that all the copies are going to be recalled, doctored and then put back on sale.”Choc’s lawyer, Richard Malka, said yesterday’s ruling “ends up being the same as the withdrawal order” and that, as result, he would take the case to a higher court.The appeal against the withdrawal order, issued by Judge Philippe Jean-Draeher, was heard on 25 May but the court did not issue its ruling until yesterday. The court said the photo of Halimi was “indecent and a violation of human dignity” and that it did not see any grounds for its publication. The court added that the magazine could be sold if the photograph was covered up, and it set a fine of 50 euros for every copy put on sale that failed to comply with this requirement.The offending photo, reportedly the first one sent to the family by the kidnappers, showed Halimi with a pistol against his temple, his face covered by masking tape and his wrists bound. The magazine did not consult the family before deciding to publish it. The prosecutor’s office said its publication violated “the feeling of grief and personal dignity.”Choc editor Paul Payan said it deserved to be published because it showed that “the barbarity was there from the outset.” Malka and the magazine’s other lawyer, Claire Chaillou, said in a joint statement that “if you ban all photos that could cause offence, you are going to seriously restrict the possibilities of informing the public.”A publication ban is extremely rare in France. One of the precedents was the January 1996 ban on “The Big Secret,” a book by former President François Mitterrand’s private physician, Claude Gubler. The European Court of Human Rights ruled in 2004 that the ban violated freedom of expression.A Paris court for minors has been trying the “Barbarians” behind closed doors since 29 April. The gang’s alleged leader, Youssouf Fofana, is said to have decided to kidnap Halimi because he was Jewish and “had to be rich.” Fofana recently rejected one of his defence lawyers on the grounds that she was Jewish.

American companies are renowned for their hard-line approach towards workplace romances; many ban them outright and will sack any employee discovered to be having a personal relationship with a colleague. But this type of attitude is inappropriate under our laws which probably explains why one-in-six people openly confess to dating a colleague.Dangerous liaisonsFurther research by the Work Foundation reveals that 21% of managers have been romantically involved with someone who reports to them at some point. While wedding bells might be the happy outcome for the couple in question, this situation can be tricky for you. It isn’t uncommon for a manager to show favouritism towards their partner probably for a quiet life at home. For example, they might allow a decline in their standard of work to go unchallenged. As this is certain to cause bad feeling among other staff, it must be dealt with. But how is that done?Start with the immediate problem of the declining work performance. Gather your supporting evidence together; this could include diary notes of poor timekeeping, examples of sloppy work and copies of any complaints made. Then, meet informally with the junior employee alone. This allows them to speak freely about any genuine problems they may have.Next, speak to the line manager independently to discover why the poor performance hasn’t been dealt with; the problem could rest with them for example, they know something relevant but haven’t told you. Again, at this stage, you should discuss the matter informally, but do remind them of their responsibilities. In most cases, this will be enough to give the ’love birds’ a wake-up call; from then on, they will know you will be watching them.If performance problems persist, deal with both employees via your disciplinary procedures. Never discipline one member of staff for example the junior employee and not the other. This could land you with a sex discrimination and/or constructive dismissal claim.Policy on relationshipsFinally, play it safe with a ’Personal Relationships at Work Policy’, that clearly sets out what is and isn’t acceptable behaviour for employees, who are romantically involved. You should include topics such as behaving professionally at all times: no public ’lovers’ tiffs’, demonstrations of affection or favouritism in other words, no behaviour that is likely to offend or annoy colleagues.l For a free sample of ’Personal Relationships at Work Policy’, please contact the NAMB on 01920 468061
