(en) US, New issue of Turning the Tide* - Jan-Feb 2006 - out now]

Date Sun, 01 Jan 2006 09:47:46 +0200

Volume 19, Number 1 issue of Turning the Tide is now out. The issue
features "On Peak Oil, Climate Change, Overpopulation and Fascism," by
Jerry Bellow of Central Texas ARA (part 1 of 3), an in-depth look at the
inter-relationship of the crisis in fossil fuel dependency, global warming,
and the development of fascism. A side-bar piece by Joe Maizlish of the War
Resisters League looks at links between the movements for global
environmental protection and global economic justice.
The issue also includes coverage of resistance inside the military to the
US war of occupation in Iraq, and resources for GI resisters. With this
issue, TTT extends it free subscription policy from prisoners to active
duty military personnel. Articles in this section look at racism within the
US military, a drop in recruitment of African-Americans, and a veterans'
protest of the court martial of a 65-year-old Marine refuser from the
Vietnam War era.

A "Report from New Orleans" covers direct action activist and community
unity to rebuild the city based on principles of self-determination and
community control. A mini-poster for a benefit show in L.A. for Anti-Racist
Action and direct action Hurricane Katrina relief is also included (Jan 15
at the Cobalt Cafe).

Two articles continue a focus on African and indigenous struggles in Latin
America. "I Believe Only in the Power of the People," a speech by Bolivia's
indigenous president-elect Evo Morales exposes that the so-called "rule of
law" means assassinations, massacres and genocide for indigenous people. A
report by Gibby Zobel from Sao Paulo describes the struggle of the
"Quilombo," as Brazilians of African descent seek justice and preservation
of their cultural roots.

In "What's In a Name?" San Diego activist D.A. Kolodenko examines the
racist legacy of the Minutemen Border Patrols and the growing
anti-immigrant movement. "It Ain't Over 'til It's Over," an opinion piece
by editor Michael Novick of Anti-Racist Action-LA/People Against Racist
Terror, looks at the twin problems of wishful thinking and defeatism in the
Euro-American left.

Rounding out the issue are shorter pieces on the South Central Farm in Los
Angeles by Tezozomoc, a report on the Palestinian right to return by
Haithem El-Zabri, and Swaneagle Harijan's moving account of a "Solstice
Vigil for Homeless Deaths" in Seattle WA. These and other pieces as usual
include contact information for grassroots groups for activists concerned
about doing something about the problems exposed.

Sample copies of "Turning the Tide: Journal of Anti-Racist Action, Research
& Education" are free in the U.S. Subscriptions are free to prisoners and
GIs, and $16 (payable to MICHAEL NOVICK) for US individuals ($26US for
foreign or institutional subs) for six bi-monthly issues. TTT is now in its
19th year of publication as a grassroots journal of anti-racism and
anti-colonialism, an unparalleled record, but needs its readers' support to
continue, as it receives no partisan subsidies, government funding, or
foundation or corporate grants. Write to ARA-LA, PO Box 1055, Culver City
CA 90232, call 310-495-0299, or email antiracistaction_la@yahoo.com
