Elections

Good post - but for some reason you only get these
things in before 10 most of the time on the nights
before non-work days.

Protect Our Future in the Coming Budget Showdown

After the 2012 election, Congress returns to Washington
for a "lame-duck" session and faces a series of high-
stakes decisions with far-reaching consequences for
workers and the economy. Many of these decisions
involve issues that have been at the center of this
election campaign, such as tax cuts for the wealthy and
benefit cuts for Social Security, Medicaid and
Medicare.

Some politicians and Wall Street executives want a
"grand bargain" that could cut Social Security,
Medicare and Medicaid benefits, all to give tax cuts to
the wealthiest Americans.

Working families across the country are coming together
to tell their members of Congress:

- NO tax cuts for the richest 2% of Americans;

- NO benefit cuts to Social Security, Medicare or
Medicaid.

Invitation to Rosa Luxemburg Foundation Official
Opening in New York City

On behalf of the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation, I'm writing
to invite you to join us in celebrating the opening of
our New York Office. To give you a little background,
the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation carries out research and
civic education in support of progressive politics. We
were founded in 1990 in Germany, where we work closely
with the Left Party, and we currently have offices in
17 countries across the globe. Here in New York we plan
to work on issues related to the United Nations and
progressive political issues across the United States
and Canada.

The office opening will take place on Wednesday,
November 14, from 2-9pm, at the General Society of
Mechanics & Tradesmen, located at 20 West 44th Street.
During the day, we will hear from foundation directors
and politicians from the German Federal and European
Parliaments on issues including: international
progressive politics, the economic crisis and the EU,
and how to build progressive political movements from
the inside out.

At 5:30, we are excited to announce a keynote speech by
Gregor Gysi, who is one of Europe's most prominent
socialist politicians and the head of the Left Party in
the Bundestag. Afterward, at 7:30, we will welcome Obie
Award winning actress Kathleen Chalfant for a dramatic
reading of Rosa Luxemburg_ letters.

For more details, check out our website at
www.rosalux-nyc.org/Nov14, where you can also RSVP. We
would encourage you to invite friends and colleagues,
and all are welcome, even if they are only able to
attend a portion of the program.

As part of the progressive political community in New
York, we are excited to get to know you better and hope
you can join us for what is sure to be an engaging and
entertaining afternoon.

Best wishes,

Stefanie Ehmsen and Albert Scharenberg

Historic Heroes from the History Makers of Today"

at 5:30 PM.

National Association of Letter Carriers Branch 11 Hall
3850 South Wabash, Chicago

Read more about this year's program and our 2012
inductees into the Hall of
Honor.http://www.illinoislaborhistory.org.

2012 marks the 75th anniversary of a number of hard-
fought battles that provide lessons for activists
involved in today's labor resurgence. In the 75th year
of the Memorial Day Massacre at Chicago's Republic
Steel, we are honoring three militant steelworker
leaders who fought for justice and democracy.

Ed Sadlowski. Ed's Steelworker Fight Back campaigns
sought to bring democracy and progressive militancy
squarely back into his union and the labor movement
generally. Ed has been a notable workers' champion for
decades.

Alice Peurala. Alice fought discrimination against
women at all levels of the industry. She became the
first and only woman president of a basic steel local,
USW 65 at South Works.

Frank Lumpkin. Frank led the Save Our Jobs effort
after Wisconsin Steel closed its Chicago plant and
refused to pay workers pay and benefits they were owed.
After 17 years of fighting for justice, a settlement
was won.

Please join us on December 2nd for an exciting evening
as we pay tribute to our heroes then and now.
Presenters will include Roberta Lynch, Deputy Director
of AFSCME Council 31 and author of Rusted Dreams, along
with Bea Lumpkin, labor and social activist since the
building of the CIO and author of Always Bring a Crowd.

From the Folks at Souls

Please mark your calendars for an important event on
December 10, 2012. We want you to be there.

As some of you know, the journal SOULS: A Critical
Journal of Black Politics, Culture and Society has
moved from Columbia University to the University of
Illinois at Chicago. Barbara Ransby has assumed
Editorship of the journal and a newly constituted
Chicago Editorial Working Group is poised to build upon
the work begun by Manning Marable and his colleagues in
New York City.

We would like to invite you to join us for a lively
post- election roundtable discussion with a group of
SOULS contributors, editors and supporters, December
10th at 5:00 p.m., followed by a reception with live
music at the beautiful and historic Chicago Cultural
Center, Yates Gallery, 78 W. Washington at Randolph.
This will also mark the publication of the inaugural
Chicago SOULS issue, focused on the 2012 Presidential
election.

Panelists will include: Fred Harris from Columbia
University, author of The Price of the Ticket and the
New York Times essay, "The Price of a Black President,"
which appeared last week. See the link below. Labor
organizer, Bill Fletcher Jr. will join us from
Washington, and UCLA Law Professor, Cheryl Harris, will
come in from the west coast. Chicago's own Cathy Cohen,
Michael Dawson, Bob Starks, Beth Richie and Cedric
Johnson will be apart of the roundtable with Barbara
Ransby as the moderator.

We are inviting Chicago area scholars of the African
Diaspora, as well as activists, artists, and colleagues
from other fields to join us in welcoming SOULS to
Chicago, re- launching the journal and forging a post-
election analysis that can propel us into 2013. We will
also be hosting friends from New York, Ann Arbor,
Detroit, Milwaukee, Madison and elsewhere for the
discussion and celebration.

We are grateful to The Illinois Humanities Council and
the Chicago Cultural Center for co-sponsoring this
event.

Best, 
Barbara Ransby, Editor of SOULS
Prudence Browne, Managing Editor of SOULS

Post-Election - Where Do We Go From Here? - Left Labor
Project presents Angela Davis

    Monday, December 10, 2012, 6:00pm
    ML King Jr. Labor Center 1199SEIU Auditorium
    310 W 43rd St between 8th & 9th Aves
    New York City

Professor Angela Davis is an important figure in our
nation's quest for social justice. Her work has always
emphasized the importance of building communities of
struggle for economic, racial, and gender equality. In
recent years she has focused on the range of social
problems associated with incarceration, and the
generalized criminalization of communities that are
most affected by poverty and racial discrimination. She
draws upon her own experiences in the early 1970s when
she spent eighteen months in jail and on trial, after
being placed on the FBI's "Ten Most Wanted List."

Left Labor Project works to build a mass movement of
working people who share the goals of progressive
movements across the country and the world. We are
socialists, either part of, or supporters of the labor
movement in the New York City area. We believe that the
real basis for a democratic future is the working
class, in its diversity - women and men as equals, all
collars, all colors, ages, creeds, whatever sexual
orientation or legal status.

Woody Guthrie's American Song
Songs and Writings by Woody Guthrie
Conceived, Adapted and Directed by Peter Glazer
November 9-18, 2012
Durham Studio Theater, Berkeley, CA

In 1933, Woody Guthrie begins a two-decade journey
through America, witnessing the Great Depression, the
dustbowl migrations, and a World War. Along the way, he
learns the stories he’ll turn into his legendary songs
about the beauty and struggles of this country. Follow
him as he finds the voice he’ll lend to the American
spirit, inspiring generations. Peter Glazer’s musical
uses Guthrie’s own powerful words and over two dozen
songs.
