Assault on Nova Scotia & Colorado/Free Joshua Wong
Nova Scotia’s Bill 1 is an anti-democratic and union busting bill. It is a concerted attack on healthcare workers. This is on the heels of Bill 37, passed in April, striped 40,000 healthcare workers of their right to strike. The attacks on our wage slaves are never ending and they are worldwide and here in the USA. For example, at Cablevision, which hates unions, management fired a worker of 11 years with the company who was trying to form a union. This worker joined 22 others who were illegal fired for working to form a union. Also the people of Hong Kong are still in the streets, but how long before China cracks down on them? One of the protesters leaders is a courageous 17-year-old man, Joshua Wong. He knows he’s fighting for his and other young people’s futures and it’s an all or nothing situation at this point. He is the hope for the younger generation. He has been arrested, and we must all keep him in our thoughts and pressure the government to release him. World Day for Decent Work is Oct. 7, 2014, support the Thunderclap and hopefully there will be 100,000,000 wage slaves involved worldwide. It is hoped that Thunderclap can help places like Nova Scotia, Ukraine, Poland, Turkey, Greece, France, UK, Canada, and the U.S., and our wage slaves south of the border with good paying jobs, full-time work with benefits, and here in the U.S. a $15 to $18 an hour minimum wage. The fight between the rich and the poor is raging on, but with the new communication and the education of our people we can win, but we must keep educating our workers and our young people about our true history of our country and the world. Golden, Colorado, students and teachers are fighting for the truth in history to be taught. Denver school boards want to downplay civil disobedience and promote the benefits of the free market and not to encourage or condone civil disorder, social strife or disregard of the laws. It is called Advanced Placement History. If this happens, our young people will lose the knowledge of what made America great and also the mistakes were made. So, maybe the mistakes will not be repeated. If people do not win over this change and stop it, it could be the greatest cultural shift of our lifetime in our schools and what side will our young wage slaves be on -- the free market 1 percent’s or the toilers fighting for unions and a better life style?
