Today in Labor History December 3, 1984: A methyl isocyanate leak from a Union Carbide plant in Bhopal, India, killed over 3,800 people and injured up to 600,000 more. Up to 16,000 people died, in total, over the years following the disaster. The Government of Madhya Pradesh has paid compensation to family members of 3,787 of the victims killed. Numerous local activist groups emerged to support the victims of the disaster, like Rashida Bee and Champa Devi Shukla, who won the Goldman Prize in 2004. Many of the activists were subjected to violent repression by the police and government. Larger international groups, like Greenpeace and Pesticide Action Network also got involved. The disaster has played a role in numerous works of fiction, including Arundhati Roy’s “The Ministry of Utmost Happiness” (2017) and Indra Sinha’s “Animal’s People” (2007). It has also been referenced in music by the Revolting Cocks “Union Carbide” and the Dog Faced Hermans ”Bhopal.”

Quando fomos abduzidos para #sc brusque, os nossos algozes, talvez os mesmos covardes, fdp lá fora agora, pressionaram um membro da #family para nos pressionar a comprar um terreno, no nosso NÃO!

Os algozes mandaram, obrigaram ou fizeram o familiar sentir ou fingir dor de cabeça, pressão alta e até febre.

Quando decidimos pela compra do terreno, todas as doenças passaram, ou talvez pararam de o pressionar, a nos pressionar na comprar o terreno.

Eis que no cartório, observei que o valor acertado foi alterado para mais, disse-lhes: "não foi esse o valor que acertamos."

Os ADVENTISTAS da sétima ganância falaram-nos: "não podemos vender pelo valor que ontem acertamos!?"

Então disse-lhes: "muito obrigado pelo seu tempo", e nos retiramos, na rua a esposa falou-me da rapidez com que disse-lhes: "Adeus!"

Voltando para o bairro do Maluche de Brusque, eu e ela, lembramos e mui, muito falamos da sofrência e das maldades que fomos vítimas quando a diretoria do IPAC era ADVENTISTA, assim aquela atipicidade era normal, mas não era normal, EU NÃO!

Em casa, a desgraça da dor de cabeça e a pressão alta voltaram com força, mas 3 dias depois, numa manhã os ADVENTISTAS nos ligaram e falaram que venderiam o terreno pelo valor que havia sido acertado.

Lá nós fomos ao fórum de Brusque, mas os ADVENTISTAS queriam que pagasse o valor acertado, com um valor muito mais maior no documento, EU NÃO!

Para completar, no Bradesco, um caixa e o gerente exigiu-nos saber o objetivo fim do valor!?

Por fim, no verso do recibo, o fdp do caixa do Bradesco, escreveu de caneta vermelha "Kleber/IPAC"

Este era o nome de um dos ADVENTISTAS da diretoria do ipac.

Man, 91, arrested after 85-year-old wife found dead at home in Adelaide's west

Police say they are expecting to charge a 91-year-old man with murder after his 85-year-old wife was found dead in Findon.

Today in Labor History December 2, 2016: Thirty-six people died in a fire at the Ghost Ship, a converted warehouse in Oakland, California, serving as an artist collective. At the time, the warehouse was hosting a concert. However, the warehouse was zoned for industrial purposes. Residential and entertainment uses were illegal. Of the 80 to 100 people attending the concert, 36 died, making it the deadliest fire in the history of Oakland. The authorities arrested Ghost Ship's master tenant Derick Almena and his assistant Max Harris and charged them with felony involuntary manslaughter. After a series of mistrials, Harris was acquitted. On January 22, 2021, Almena pled guilty to 36 charges of involuntary manslaughter and was sentenced to 12 years in prison. With time served, he was expected to be able to serve his sentence in 18 months of home confinement while wearing an ankle monitor. A building inspector, a Child Protective Services agent, six members of the fire department, and three police officers had been to the building several times, but never mentioned any violations. Building owner, Chor Ng, plead the 5th, and never served any time. PG&E eventually paid some damages, as the fire originated with faulty electrical.

Brighton, #UK: Call For An International Anti-Repression Gathering

"In the UK as elsewhere, murderous #police kill with impunity whilst politicians make way for a vast prison building program that will affect the poorest and most marginalised parts of society. Anarchists, activists and environmentalists are targetted as “extremists” and “terrorists” with special police teams designed to infiltrate and dismantle their campaigns and organisations.

Our communities are increasingly turned into open prisons, “a prison society”, through new technologies of social control. It’s time to stop wringing our hands and instead get organised. What do we have in common and can we build a common platform of action and discussion that helps us build a better world."

Today in Labor History November 30, 1999: Thousands of activists, students, union members, environmentalists and others shut down the World Trade Organization (WTO) summit in Seattle. It was the first large-scale demonstration in the United States to protest “globalization” and the beginning of many similar protests. The WTO protest raised awareness of corporate greed while simultaneously promoting the delusion that, with a few reforms, capitalism and democracy would serve the needs of the people.

Never once did the possibility of Neonazis get entertained by the German police.

Police and Nazis are SO aligned in being an arm of power, reinforcement for the powerful, that in this case they overlooked the shooting of a German police officer by a Nazi to chase conspiracy theories.

It took the Nazis sending them an edited Pink Panther video of the officers stolen firearm to admit it was Nazis.

Today in Labor History November 23, 1903: Army troops were sent to Cripple Creek, Colorado to put down a rebellion by striking coal miners. 600 union members were thrown into a military bullpen, and held for weeks without charges. When a lawyer arrived with a writ of habeas corpus, General Bell, who led the repression, responded "Habeas corpus, hell! We'll give 'em post mortems!” The strike was led by Big Bill Haywood and the Western Federation of Miners, which, at the time, was the most militant union in the country, calling for revolution and abolition of the wage system.

remember that all the instruments of violence created to be used on foreigners can and will be used on nationals as well. it's the state's capital structure: the more means of violence the state has, the cheaper violence will be for them, and the more likely they are to use it. not just machinery but also training ("human capital").
