Solidarity UCubed

by
Abby Zimet

In an ingenious organizing effort, a union for the unemployed
was launched last month by the machinists' and other unions to help the
estimated 31 million Americans who have lost their jobs to band
together, fight back and get work - or at least benefits. UCubed, or Ur
Union of Unemployed, is built from the bottom up, with cubes based on
zip codes forming neighborhoods forming power blocks. Members now exist
in 43 states. More here.

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
