Website kudos I would just like to say thank you for the positive intensity in converting one of my most reliable news sources. I am a college student studying architecture, and I read the People's World every day. I have been reading the People's Weekly World since I was 13, and I have really noticed the recent changes.
Where have all the workers gone? People's World readers say what's on their minds.
This year marks the 60th anniversary of the founding of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, NATO. It is also the 200th anniversary of the birth of Abraham Lincoln, who is often quoted as having said: “You can fool all of the people some of the time, and you can fool some of the people all of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time.”
Thirty-five years ago, on Aug. 29, 1970, some 25,000-30,000 people, mostly Mexican Americans, marched through the heart of the East Los Angeles barrios protesting the war in Vietnam. It was the largest Mexican American political demonstration ever until Cesar Chavez’s funeral in 1993. It was a time when young working-class Chicanos and Latinos were beginning to refuse to go to Vietnam, and those on the front lines, along with African American and white soldiers, began to resist the Pentagon’s orders.
The massive Aug. 29 demonstration in New York against the Bush agenda will be a historic event for our nation.
