In November last year, Santa Ana City Council passed a resolution to include a non-citizens voting measure in the 2024 elections, which will determine whether noncitizens in Santa Ana will have the right to vote in municipal elections. If passed, this measure will be a new precedent in the expansion of voting rights for a group that has been historically prevented from voting.

La opresión de los inmigrantes y solicitantes de asilo se remonta al sistema capitalista. Las crueles tácticas implementadas por el imperialismo en el extranjero son implementadas aquí en nuestro país para amedrentar a los solicitantes de asilo en la frontera. Hoy vemos a gente salir a las calles en apoyo de la lucha palestina, demostrando que nadie será completamente libre hasta que todos seamos libres. Desde México hasta Palestina —todos los muros tienen que desaparecer—.

Western media would have readers uncritically believe the claims that the PMF is an “Iranian proxy,” much the same as the characterization of Lebanon’s Hezbollah or Yemen’s Ansar Allah (also known as the "Houthis") — but who are the PMF in reality?

El Occidente y la CEDEAO respaldada por Occidente intentan criticar, sancionar y demonizar los pasos soberanos que está tomando la recién formada AES. A pesar de las críticas, está claro que los gobiernos de transición de Malí, Burkina Faso y Níger cuentan con el respaldo de movimientos y organizaciones populares. Miles de partidarios junto a estos movimientos les saludan como el paso correcto hacia un camino antiimperialista que traerá dignidad, seguridad económica y política a las personas que viven en el Sahel.

Joe Biden, el principal proveedor de armas y patrocinador político de Israel, tiene el poder de poner alto a la posibilidad de una ofensiva en contra de Rafah. Mientras el régimen del apartheid se prepara para lo que espera que sea el final sangriento de su guerra contra Gaza, ahora es el momento de levantarse en solidaridad con aún más fuerza que antes.

La organización es la fuente del éxito de la lucha, de ahí que la represión estatal se centre ante todo en mermar nuestras instituciones colectivas. La pregunta es: ¿Podemos construir organizaciones resilientes? Un componente de esto es lograr que sea difícil la divulgación de mentiras, insinuaciones, calumnias y caracterizaciones erróneas que generen resentimientos que conduzcan a la tragedia, como pasó en los ejemplos descritos aquí.
