Moshe Adler | counterpunch.org | 2021-06-01

Alone Again: Migrant workers in India fight for survival
Arghya Bhaskar | peoplesdispatch.org | 2021-05-31
The sudden nationwide lockdown announced in March 2020 by the Center created a grave socio-economic crisis that hurt migrant workers the most. The lockdown triggered a reverse migration on a massive scale. Who can forget the visuals telling traumatic tales of their desperation? Stung by that bitter experience–which invited wide criticism–the central government has left it to each state to decide whether to impose a lockdown to tackle the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic. It has also left it to states to determine how intense and long-lasting they want their lockdowns. | In March 2020, India had of…

For The Nez Perce, A Proposed Gold Mine Is A Symbol Of Broken Promises
_____ | popularresistance.org | 2021-05-31
As a citizen of the Nez Percé, or Nimíipuu, which means the People, I look at gold mining as a symbol of broken promises. | In 1855, when my ancestors entered into a treaty with the United States, we ceded millions of acres in what eventually became Idaho, Oregon and Washington. In exchange we reserved an exclusive homeland and rights to fish, hunt, gather and pasture throughout our vast aboriginal territory. | Then in 1860 gold was discovered, and thousands of prospectors flooded across our borders in violation of the treaty, damaging our sacred places and natural resources and causing unspeakable injury to our…
