January 28, 2013. Nikolas Dertilis, the last colonel of the Junta (1967-1974) has died in Athens. Dertilis spent the past 38 years in prison.

A 45-year old man, and I got him in the head, with one bullet!”… (Michail Mirogiannis, greek original)

Una cinquantina di attivisti hanno partecipato all'assemblea delle Rete nazionale salute e sicurezza sul lavoro e sui territori ospitata nei locali dell'Unicobas di Roma, Si è trattato di un'assemblea in parte di formazione- grazie agli interventi di Gatti sulle nanopatologie, ovvero sulle patologie da particelle ultrasottili, e Aucone, sul rischio sismico, ma in cui la parte centrale, ovviamente, è stato però l'incontro con i tre delegati operai di Taranto, da anni , forse decenni, attivi sul fronte ILVA.

For Black History Month: In 1941, the African-American labor leader, A. Philip Randolph made a call for a national demonstration by African-Americans in Washington, D.C. The demonstration never occurred, because of sabotage by White and Black liberals. But the organizing for it, and the movement behind it, continuing during World War II, had a big impact on U.S. Black people. It was an important influence preparing for the Civil Rights and Black Liberation struggles of the 1950s and ‘60s.
