US Cuba policy:  from Regime Change to Systemic Change 

by Cliff DuRand

The diplomatic recognition of Cuba by the US announced on December 17, 2014 is still based on the same objective, viz. to bring that country back into the capitalist orbit.  President Obama has just shifted the strategy from regime change to promoting systemic change.  Read more


Mexico in Crisis

by Laura Carlsen

The brutal violence of Mexican society has been forced into our view with the disappearance of 43 students from a teachers college in Ayotzinapa. In the search for their bodies in the mountains of Guerrero, many mass graves were discovered, literally revealing the skeletons in the nation’s closet. People were shocked and outraged. Massive protests swept the country as the finger of blame was pointed not just to local authorities and drug gangs, but all the way up to the president himself.

This has catalyzed a national soul searching of long standing practices of impunity, corruption, militarization, human rights violations and official complicity that extends to all levels. Journalist Laura Carlsen puts this in the context of the U.S. sponsored drug war and NAFTA. That’s right, the U.S. is also complicit in all this. In a talk December 4, 2014 she argues that the U.S. has contributed to the present crisis by funding corrupt forces responsible for crimes against their own population.

Based in Mexico City, Laura Carlsen is Director of the Americas Program of the Center for International Policy (www.cipamericas.org). She has written extensively on all aspects of Mexico and recently gave a Congressional briefing on the current situation.

"Las Grutas de Tolantongo"

Documentary Video Project

The Center for Global Justice is producing a documentary video project that tells the story of a cooperative resort in Tolantongo Mexico. We’ve begun fund raising on Indiegogo as a vehicle to complete the video.
The CGJ believes it is essential for the progressive community to focus on and promote alternative institutional forms that can act as the foundation for radical system change. Cooperatives are one such institution. The documentary, “Las Grutas de Tolantongo”, can act as an important educational vehicle, broadening the public's knowledge of the benefits of cooperatives. In addition to the fundamental difference in workplace structure, this video will highlight the role cooperatives can play in solving the immigration fiasco. It will draw attention to how local communities can act as stewards of the environments they live in and wish to preserve for generations to come. It can serve as a working example of a healthy alternative to the destructive and greed driven economic model that is pushing us and the world toward a precarious brink... Read More


 

We refuse to accept a world where the vast majority of people suffer hunger and want, where the vast majority of people have little or no control over their lives, where the vast majority of people live in fear of aggression.

The Center for Global Justice is a multi-cultural, democratically organized service, learning, and research center. Through our support of the social and solidarity economy, our public education programs, and our research collaborations we seek to empower ordinary people to work to create a more socially and economically just world.
