    Report

    This report examines the role of the world’s largest arms (as well as a  number of other security and IT) firms in shaping and profiting from the militarization of US borders. Through their campaign contributions,  lobbying, constant engagement with government officials, and the revolving door between industry and government, these border security corporations and their government allies have formed powerful border–industrial complex that is a major impediment to a humane response to migration.

    Report

    Este informe examina la historia del control fronterizo de los Estados Unidos y el fuerte consenso político a favor de la militarización de la frontera, que es anterior al Gobierno de Trump. Muestra cómo este consenso político ha sido forjado en gran medida por las mayores empresas de armamento del mundo (así como de algunas del sector de la seguridad y la tecnología de la información), que han logrado formidables ganancias con el crecimiento exponencial de los presupuestos gubernamentales destinados al control fronterizo.

    Article

    En 2012, la ciudadanía de Highland Park, en Michigan, se reunió para fundar Soulardarity y promover la democracia energética y un desarrollo equitativo. Desde que se creó, Soulardarity ha instalado siete farolas solares y desplegado tecnología solar por un importe de más de 30 000 dólares en Highland Park y las comunidades circundantes. El grupo ha organizado también la promoción, a nivel municipal y estatal, de la regulación, legislación y el fomento del liderazgo político local que apoye la propiedad comunitaria, la transparencia y la responsabilidad ambiental.

    Soulardarity defiende también la gestión energética de la propiedad comunitaria (COPA, por sus siglas en inglés), en el marco del llamamiento a favor de un Nuevo Pacto Verde que aborde el cambio climático, la desigualdad económica y la injusticia racial.

    Article

    In 2012, citizens from Highland Park, Michigan came together to form Soulardarity in response to the repossession of over 1,000 streetlights from their city. Their goal is to organise for community-owned solar street lights, energy production and equitable development. Since its formation, Soulardarity has installed seven solar streetlights and deployed over US$ 30,000 worth of solar technology in Highland Park and the surrounding communities through the PowerUP bulk purchasing programme. The group has also organised advocacy at the city and state levels for regulation, policy and local political leadership to support community ownership, transparency and environmental responsibility.

    Soulardarity also advocates for a Community Ownership Power Administration (COPA) as part of the growing call in the United States for a Green New Deal to tackle climate change, economic inequality and racial injustice.

  8. It takes a hurricane... Puerto Rico’s yearning for energy democracy

    • Antonio Carmona Báez
    30 Julio 2018
    Paper

    On the evening of 22 January 2018, the Governor of Puerto Rico announced the complete privatisation of the island’s power utility. The public statement came four months after hurricanes Irma and Maria, which devastated the archipelago leaving thousands of people homeless or dead and over 40 percent of the population without access to electricity and running water. Puerto Rico’s energy system was crumbling long before the tropical weather systems of September 2017 hit the archipelago. The hurricanes only laid bare the unsustainable conditions of the extremely expensive and fossil fuel-generated electrical power regime.

    Paper

    "If farmers expect society to help protect them against the crushing effect of surpluses, they must be prepared to protect society by working out permanent arrangements for storing of reserve food supplies. Both farmers and non-farmers have a responsibility to each other, and any dodging of this responsibility by either group is likely to end in disaster.” Former US secretary of agriculture Henry A. Wallace

    Walden Bello
    02 Marzo 2017
    Article

    Keynesianism offered important tools for overcoming the economic crisis, but its application by Obama's government was too half-hearted and misdirected (going to banks rather than households) to effectively reduce the recession. Clinton paid the price.

  19. Keynesianism in the Great Recession

    • Walden Bello
    22 Febrero 2017
    Paper

    The derailment of progressive Keynesianism by Obama’s conservative, technocratic Keynesianism resulted in a protracted recovery, continuing high unemployment, millions of foreclosed or bankrupt households fending for themselves, and more scandals in a Wall Street where nothing had changed. Obama did not pay for this tragic outcome in 2012, but Hillary Clinton did in 2016.
