Re: From Cairo to New York, Which Side Are Police On?

I have spent my professional life studying the police from
pre-poli!ce in early societies to modern forces. Police
and criminals come from the same population --both are
working class. It is by chance whether someone living in a
ghetto becomes a police officer or a criminal. It is
important to see the "line police" and the police
management in the same way you view a manufacturer. In
1919, in Boston, police struck and supported workers. This
history is important in dealing withj the police. If I
have read thr reports of the Occupy movement, the police
have often treated the people in the street tenderly. if
the police act brutally, this is more a reflection of
their bosses than of the "troops. In other words, you
should not start with the presumption that police are your
enemy.The police shjould be treated like any other
workers.Workers can also be a reactionary force.So it is
necessary to think through a strategy to separate the line
police from their leaders, If you can't get them on your
side, you can at least show that you mean them no harm.

Building Bridges: Your Community and Labor Report
		   National Edition
Produced by Ken Nash and Mimi Rosenberg 

Neither Rain Nor Snow Stop Black, Latino, Asian American
Unionists March for Occupy Wall Street

Despite the rain and snow of the season's first big storm
hundreds in NYC braved the weather to hail Occupy Wall
Street and vowed to help protect the protesters from the
increasingly inclement weather as winter approaches and
the increasing attacks by the city governments nationwide.
The rally at City Hall and march to the Occupy site at
Wall Street's Freedom Square was organized by the
Coalition of Black Trade Unionists, the Labor Council for
Latin American Advancement, the NAACP and the Asian,
Pacific American Labor Alliance all representing workers
who have been particularly hard hit by the recession. This
Rally and March signaled the increasing movement of people
of color both in support and joining the Occupy Wall
Street movement. 

To Download or listen to this 27:56 minute program go to
Our website is    www.buildingbridgesradio.org

Building Bridges is regularly broadcast live over WBAI,
99.5 FM in the N.Y.C Metropolitan area on Mondays from
7-8pm EST and is streamed, and archived at www.wbai.org

Dear Single-Payer Supporter:

Join Healthcare-NOW! and National Nurses United for a day
of action on Thursday November 3rd. We have to let the
world know we will not let the 1% continue to steal our
money or cut Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security--the
programs that help keep us housed, healthy, and fed
through hard times and older age.

On Thursday, November 3rd, the G20 group of Central Bank
Governors and Finance Ministers--the 1%--are meeting in
Paris. They are not on our side. They represent Wall
Street and international banks. The richest 10% receive a
higher share of our nation's income than in any other time
since the figures have been measured, while 20% of our
nation's children live below the poverty line. 50 million
of us live with the grave risks associated with being
underinsured.

National Nurses United have called for an action in
Washington, D.C. on November 3rd (.pdf) to make Wall
Street pay a Financial Transactions Tax (FTT). This will
create $350 billion yearly in revenue, holding
corporations responsible for some of the devastation
they've caused us.

There will also be actions in Los Angeles and San
Francisco:

Los Angeles: March from Occupy LA site, 11 a.m., First and
Main, rally, plaza adjacent to U.S. Bank, W. 633 5th St.

San Francisco: March 11 a.m., from 101 Market, across from
the Federal Reserve Bank, rally at 12 noon, Wells Fargo
Bank headquarters, 464 California St.

Washington, DC: Rally, Lafayette Square, 11:30 a.m.,
followed by march to U.S. Treasury Department. Nurses head
to Capitol Hill to lobby Congress at 3 p.m.

If you cannot make it to DC, LA, or SF, we are asking you
and your group to attend an Occupation and/or contact your
Representative and Senators by email, or in person outside
their offices on Thursday, November 3rd. And lets make
thousands of calls to the White House at 202-456-1111 with
this message on November 3rd:



No cuts to Social Security, Medicaid, or Medicare!
Improve and extend Medicare to all!
Make Wall Street pay the Financial Transactions Tax!

With the energy and vision coursing through the country in
the Occupy Wall Street movement, which has the full
support of labor, what better moment could there be to
amplify labor's voice for peace, the end of militarized
foreign policy, and new priorities that champion the
urgent needs of the people.

USLAW is labor's main instrument to end the wars and
redirect excessive military spending to domestic needs,
working with veteran, community, religious, student,
peace, and economic justice groups in the New Priorities
Network. The NYC Chapter of USLAW co-ordinates the
activity of USLAW affiliates operating in the City,
marching, organizing, educating, building relations
between labor and the community to secure the new
priorities we need. Another key part of USLAW's work is
active solidarity with Iraqi unions.
Entertainment by the NYC Labor Chorus and Dave Lippman.
Refreshments will be served.


In solidarity,

Mike

United University Professions (AFT 2190) representing
