Finger-pointing in the gun rights fight

By Dave Anderson
Baum is a lifelong liberal Democrat who supports single payer healthcare, strong environmental protection, reproductive freedom, unions, stiff financial regulation, and peace over war. He also loves guns — which puts him at odds with his wife, daughter and friends.

U.S. at fault for circumstances feeding immigration

By Dave Anderson
President Obama has been accused of just opening up the border. Actually, his administration has deported approximately 400,000 people a year. He is spending $18 billion on border enforcement. We now have more than 21,000 Border Patrol agents. That’s double the number of agents since 2005.

Obituary for a river? Not if we start fighting

By Gary Wockner
And so when we talk about the rivers of Colorado, including the Fraser River which was the subject of this article, we are not just talking about short-term or very localized issues, we are talking about people and endangered wildlife throughout the Southwest U.S. from Denver to Mexicali and the Gulf of California.

Workers at Walmart cite poor conditions

By Dave Anderson
This month, something quite remarkable happened in America. Hundreds of Walmart workers who don’t have a union stood up to the company, knowing that it has a long history of illegally retaliating against its employees. In a high unemployment economy, they went on strike for a short time and protested at the firm’s annual shareholder meeting.

Real people pushed out of TPP talks

By Dave Anderson
At Public Citizen’s annual gala in May, Warren launched an attack on backroom trade deals such as the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) currently being negotiated: “From what I hear, Wall Street, pharmaceuticals, telecom, big polluters and outsourcers are all salivating at the chance to rig the deal in the upcoming trade talks.

Imagining the ‘unimaginable’

By Michael N. Nagler
Last week the quiet town of Waseca, Minn. narrowly avoided becoming “one more in a long list of school shootings” (I will come back to this language of the CNN report). A boy, 17 years old, had plotted to kill his family and bomb the town’s junior and senior high school, to “kill as many students as possible” and then be killed by a SWAT-team.

Labor dispute may push shuttle drivers’ pay below poverty line

By Dave Anderson
If you’ve had an early morning flight from DIA, you might have gotten a ride to the airport with SuperShuttle. Everything seemed normal. The driver came to your door and was helpful and friendly. What you didn’t know is that, for five years, the drivers have been in a fierce fight against a humiliating system of indentured servitude.

The lessons of Ludlow

By Dave Anderson
In 1914, you couldn’t be neutral about the Colorado coal miners strike. Muckraker Upton Sinclair said the Denver newspapers were prostitutes of Big Coal. The Denver Chamber of Commerce advocated a boycott of the Rocky Mountain News and Denver Times for pro-worker bias. Boulder Daily Camera publisher L.C. Paddock raged against Denver papers and published a pro-management special section of his paper on the strike, which he distributed throughout the state to 40 dailies and 80 weeklies.

For Peter

By Winona LaDuke
He was a writer among writers, up to the last. Peter Matthiessen lived in an era of grand adventure writers, storytelling in words, and lived it well. I remember thinking that with our times together, walking, talking and watching him in his art. I knew him as a friend, and loved him as a courageous and gifted man.
