The Obama administration’s proposed defense budget calls for military families and retirees to pay sharply more for their healthcare, while leaving unionized civilian defense workers’ benefits untouched. The proposal is causing a major rift within the Pentagon, according to U.S. officials. Several congressional aides suggested the move is designed to increase the enrollment in Obamacare’s state-run insurance exchanges.

From April 9 to 15, “100,000 Americans will train for non-violent direct action,” promises a new website called “The 99% Spring.” But while the 43 organizations co-signing a letter on the ragtag-looking site indicate the sort of leaderless resistance characterized by the Occupy Wall Street movement, a series of files The Daily Caller downloaded from the United Auto Workers website indicate that the organized labor powerhouse is behind the effort.

Econonomic Sabotage? A Case for the FBI? Occupy Wall Street and the Cuban Connection
Submitted by Trevor on February 14, 2012 – 11:12 am EST
Occupy Wall Street and its hundreds of offshoots, cost the U.S. hundreds of millions of dollars in a few short months. Cleanup costs, police overtime, lost and disrupted production and countless smaller issues hit cash strapped communities at a time they could least afford it.
If, as some (including myself) predict, the movement expands and becomes better organized and more violent next Spring and Summer, the costs could become astronomical.
If you were an enemy of the U.S., a hostile power intent on bringing America to its knees, would you like to see this movement grow? Maybe even help it along a little? There is some evidence that one country has been doing just that.
That country is Cuba.
The O.W.S. movement got more than a little attention at a recent Cuban sponsored convention of communist led labor unions in Tijuana, Mexico.
Speakers included several high ranking Cuban officials, including Heriberto González del Valle, a professor at the Lázaro Peña National School for Union Cadres in Havana, Dr. Raymundo Navarro Fernández, member of the Secretariat of the Central de Trabajadores de Cuba and Cuban Gilda Chacón, representing the formerly Soviet controlled international communist front World Federation of Trade Unions.
At the meeting, João Batista of the Central dos Trabalhadores e Trabalhadoras do Brasil stated that “that the Occupy movement has brilliantly shown the world that “U.S. imperialism” also affects the 99 percent at home.”
Where is the electrifying Occupy Wall Street movement headed?From capitalist media pundits to the Occupy Wall Street encampments struggling to hold public space in countless cities and towns across the U.S., this question is bubbling underneath the daily actions and police repression.
An opportunity to discuss the experience of other such movements will take place just across the U.S. border from San Diego in Tijuana, Mexico, on Dec. 2 to 4 at the 8th U.S./Cuba/Mexico/Latin America Labor Conference.
It will follow a three-day Workers’ School with instructors from the Lázaro Peña Cadre School in Havana, Cuba.
The “National School for Trade Union Cadres Lazaro Pena” is affiliated with the Cuban Workers Trade Union Central and works with the Cuban office of the World Federation of Trade unions to “train” Caribbean and Latin American labor officials, from its base in Havana.
It is an organ of the ruling Communist Party of Cuba, charged with spreading Castroite doctrine throughout the region, by way of the labor movement.
Occupy “city liason” Mario Brito also has a long Communist Party record, as do several others in the organization.

Communist Party members have played leading roles in the “Occupy” movement well beyond Los Angeles.
On Tuesday, October 11, 2011, the Communist Party held a national teleconference to discuss the “Occupy Movement,” which by then had spread to 200 cities. Arturo Cambron, of the Communist Party and Occupy Los Angeles was the key speaker on the call:
Southern California Party leader Arturo Cambron will share how the CPUSA and Young Communist League (YCL) are working in “Occupy Los Angeles.”
This movement, also known as the “99% movement,” is being hailed across the country. Movements and organizations are reaching out in solidarity. The AFL-CIO is opening union halls and offering other material assistance. Ordinary people are donating food, money and materials.
A big challenge for the CPUSA and left, progressive movements is to link these demonstrations with the labor led all-people’s coalition and help deepen understanding that the path to progress must be through electoral and political action including defeating Republican Tea Party reaction in 2012.
We can also play a role in offering more advanced programmatic ideas like nationalizing the banks and socialism.To have a positive impact, the CPUSA and YCL must be a part of the “Occupy” movement, participating at every level and building greater local support for the actions among labor and progressive forces.
My name is Lisa Bergmann from the Young Communist League USA. On behalf of our organization I would like to thank WFDY and the JCP for hosting this inspiring, well-organized event and for ensuring that the YCLUSA could be here with all of you today. The Young Communist League USA stands firmly, as it always has, united with all of you against U.S. imperialism, greed, and war…
Inspired by the “Arab Spring” and other youth movements in Europe and Latin America, the Occupy Wall Street Movement began in the heart of the U.S. capitalist system, and has now spread to more than 300 cities in the United States. ..
The labor movement in the U.S. has been one of the strongest allies to the Occupy movement. Other participants in the Occupy movement include peace activist groups, veterans, elected officials, immigrant rights groups, and of course the Communist Party and the Young Communist League! The Young Communist League, even though we are in a re-building phase, has participated in Occupy in every city where we exist, and has even initiated the Occupy chapters in some cities. Leaders of the Young Communist League and leaders of the Communist party have been arrested in Chicago on two separate occasions during police raids on the Occupy movement.
Finally, I will speak briefly about the 2012 elections in the U.S. The election of Obama in 2008 was a tremendous victory for the people of the United States and indeed for people all over the world. ..
That said, the fight for jobs and for real solutions MUST include re-electing Obama in 2012. It is the role of the YCL to emphasize this wherever we go, and to try to push youth in the Occupy movement and elsewhere who do not want to work with any politicians to understand that being absent from the political process is only allowing the ultra-right wing to build power… Angela Davis, when visiting Occupy Wall Street on October 31st, said that “It is up to US to build a movement. And it is up to Obama to respond to that movement. But he cannot do it on his own.
The Worker’s World Party also plays a big role in Occupy Los Angeles and other movements across the country from Michigan to New York. W.W.P. member Mike Martinez, also a participant in the Tijuana Conference, explained his party’s strong role in Occupy Los Angeles in a November 2 article for Worker’s World:
Early in the occupation, many participants opposed an “End Police Brutality Committee” proposed by some people of color because at that time, it was argued, “there has not been any police brutality at Occupy L.A.” At one point Mejicano activists who argued against the police being considered part of the 99 percent were booed by other, mostly white participants.
As the debate on police brutality grew, however, more and more of the occupiers began to reject the notion that police were friends of Occupy L.A., especially as Boston, Chicago and other city encampments suffered brutal police attacks. This opening cleared the way for the Oct. 12 Coalition Against Police Brutality to march from Occupy L.A. with a good number of supporters.A big program was held on the Pelican Bay Prison hunger strike.
Workers World Party activists participating in the events were able to call for a march in solidarity with the prisoners at the General Assembly, support for which passed by consensus just days before the striker’s demands were met and the strike called off. The WWP members also promoted a film about socialist Cuba, which was shown to all the occupation participants.
WWP members also helped organize another action at local bank offices.When they marched to Wells Fargo Bank just a few blocks away, security quickly scrambled to shut their doors and closed their lobby to the public with barricades. For the protesters, this amounted to a large victory, and they marched through L.A.’s financial district chanting, “Fight the banks, shut them down!”One marcher waved a large portrait of Lenin at the bankers. It was like waving a cross at a vampire. The next day there was also a Karl Marx portrait that read: “99%ers of the world unite!”
Ron Gochez, another Tijuana conference attendee, infamous in Los Angeles for his anti-police activism, created a stir at an occupy Los Angeles demonstration when he made the statement that “police are not part of the 99%.” His remarks were met with jeers from some of the crowd, who tried to shout him down. Later he said, “Although they (cops) might make the money of the 99%, they represent and defend the 1%.”
Martha Grevatt, a member of Detroit’s UAW Local 869 and a W.W.P. organizer, was also in Tijuana.
Grevatt says that considering the anemic job market, there is very little distinction between the labor and Occupy movements. She says autoworkers have responded accordingly. “I work on the auto shop floor, and working people really identify with the fact that people are standing up to the banks,” Grevatt said at a November 6 Detroit rally. “They’re standing up to the bosses, they’re saying no more cutbacks, no more givebacks. We demand jobs.”
Grevatt says union participation has graduated beyond pronouncements and vocal support. “It means everything that labor is involved. There are people who are union members and union leaders who have been camping out, who have been here every day.”
Perhaps the most influential and potentially destructive dangerous Tijuana conference attendee was Clarence Thomas, an ILWU Local 10 Executive Board member, an Oakland California identity and an affiliate of both the Communist Party and, more recently, the W.W.P.
Here is a video of Thomas addressing the Tijuana conference. Thomas invokes the memory of late Communist Party leader Harry Bridges and proudly lays out his plans for mass economic disruption to the assembled comrades.
Clarence Thomas has played a key role in cementing ties between the ultra radical Occupy Oakland movement and the Bay Area’s very strong labor union community.
Thomas was also heavily active in encouraging the November 2 Occupy led shutdown of the Port of Oakland and the December 12, partially successful attempt to shut down every major port on the West Coast, from Alaska to Southern California.

Three brothers, all illegal immigrants, accused of serious crimes Updated: Monday, 20 Feb 2012, 7:06 PM EST Published : Monday, 20 Feb 2012, 7:06 PM EST
Secure Community is Needed Now!
MILFORD (FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) – Three brothers, all illegal immigrants from Ecuador, are now all accused of serious crimes.
David Segundo Dutan-Guaman who is the latest brother to be accused reportedly stabbed a 21-year-old man in the arm with a kitchen knife during an argument at a house party. The incident occurred early Saturday morning at Dutan-Guaman’s home on Water Street.
The victim hurt so badly, he left this trail of blood stretching for a block; however, Chief Thomas O’Laughlin of the Milford Police told FOX 25, that although it was a “pretty severe cutting” the victim is expected to survive.
If the Dutan-Guaman name sounds familiar, it is because David’s brother Nicolas Dutan-Guaman, is accused of hitting and killing 23-year old Matthew Denice in Milford last August.
A third brother, Pablo, is accused of letting Nicolas drive his truck even through he did not have a license.
Wendy Murphy, the lawyer for the Denice family, said “what’s frustrating for them is here’s yet another case from the same family involving circumstances somewhat similar to those that led to Matthew’s death.”
Denice’s high-profile death shed light on Gov. Deval Patrick’s refusal to sign onto the Secure Communties Program which is the federal government’s fingerprint sharing program meant to identify and deport criminal illegal immigrants.
Authorities say knowledge of David Dutan-Guaman prior arrests would not have made a difference in this case unless Secure Communities had been in place previous to his arrest allowing immigration authorities to learn about him.
The Denice family’s attorney believes the governor should have signed on when he had the chance.
“It’s hard to imagine that a politician would be opposed because all it is is a kind of one stop shopping for law enforcement officials that want to know as much as they can about the people they’re pulling over, the people they’re arresting,” said Murphy.
A spokeswoman for Gov. Patrick told FOX 25 that they would not be speaking about it because it is a local and federal law enforcement issue.
Even though the governor has refused to sign onto Secure Communities, it is still coming. The federal government is planning to roll out the program nationwide, including right here in Massachusetts, by the end of 2013.
As for David Dutan-Guaman, he is being held on $5,000 bail.
A law enforcement official with knowledge of the case says ICE has lodged a detainer against Dutan-Guaman which means if he is released, ICE would move in and take custody.
