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.

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.

Justice delayed is justice denied. We do have lots of things to worry in this world but without justice there will be no world. I stand by you.

“Justice” if government and individual fully implement this world then many of our problems is solved within no time. But as the time is passes injustice and violence are on constant rise. Numbers of hunger in the world is picking up the pick an uncertainty in the environment brings up several other issues. From health problems to other common social problem. It’s good to see that how you are putting efforts to bring the improvement. Such communities can play vital role to realize the people that without advocating the people who are in problem we can’t settle up the world peace and harmony.
