Western capitalist approaches have created dangerous conditions in California, but Indigenous communities have managed fire as a natural part of the ecosystem, writes Sonali Kolhatkar.

Black Lives Matter leaders stand on the shoulders of civil rights movement of the 1960s, writes Malik Miah. John Lewis's life reflects the power of that revolutionary leadership and its inspiration for today's new leaders.

Tens of thousands of workers and others plan to “Strike for Black Lives” on July 20, writes Malik Miah. Fast food, ride-share, nursing home and airport workers in more than 25 cities are expected to walk off the job for a full-day strike.

US President Donald Trump is doubling down on his race war agenda, while Democratic party mayors are succumbing to pressure and seeking to undermine the Black Lives Matter movement, writes Malik Miah.

What began as a response to anti-Black police violence and the murder of George Floyd on May 25 is now a deepening “American Spring”, writes Malik Miah, demanding revolutionary change to a system that puts white lives above Black lives in all walks of life.

The rebellion against police violence and murder continues to expand in the United States. New demands are being raised concerning issues of institutional racism by Black and Brown people and in opposition to the symbols of white genocide by Native American nations, writes Malik Miah.

The defunding and dismantling of the standing police is the first step to creating a “safety force” under community control, with the ability to prosecute bad cops and those who are rarely thrown in prison, writes Malik Miah.

Blood and destruction are on the hands of the cops and the criminal justice system, writes Malik Miah, as an emboldened civil protest movement sweeps the United States.

Black men and women are murdered by cops and white thugs, and nothing happens. The criminal “justice” system legally backs the crimes of cops and racists as “justifiable”. It happens so often that African Americans initially just shrug and hold back outrage, writes Malik Miah. Then anger explodes when the truth is revealed.
