Lula's Government: Challenges and Perspectives

This October saw two firsts in Brazilian history: a
working class party won the elections, and Luis Inacio
Lula da Silva (Lula), a worker who started his
political life as a militant trade unionist, is the
President. These historical events result from more
than 30 years of democratic, popular, and trade union

Countdown to Doomsday
Capitalism to Destroy Human Habitat?
Depletion of oil and water supplies ...

The final struggle over the survival of planet Earth,
as the habitat for life, is fast approaching.

The main obstacle to saving the planet is the
existence of the worldwide capitalist/imperialist
system, a juggernaut oblivious to the fate of
billions of people.

It is obvious that stress caused by the geometrical
growth of the world population in the last two
centuries has caused a number of the present-day
problems of our environment.
