So a five-setter that approached four hours should come as no surprise… except for the fact that the No. 9 Schwartzman held a commanding lead, winning the first two sets, 6-3, 6-4, thanks to his opponent’s error-filled play. But Norrie made a comeback to win the next two to level the match. In the final set drama, Schwartzman was comfortably sitting with 5-3 lead, only to have Norrie save a match point and another at 5-4. Grimacing and hobbling, Schwartzman saved two match points of his own but lost the last four games, as Norrie prevailed, 3-6, 4-6, 6-2, 6-1, 7-5.

¿Que camino hacia al Socialismo?

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this Este artículo se basa en una charla editada, “¿Qué camino hacia el socialismo?” Dada en un Foro de Workers World Party/Partido Mundo Obrero el 23 de noviembre del aňo en curso en la ciudad de Nueva York.Scott Williams (derecho) y Betsey Piette protestan la crisis climática, Filadelfia, septiembre de 2019.La pregunta “¿Qué camino hacia el socialismo?” puede plantearse como “¿Qué camino hacia la supervivencia para la especie humana y para el resto de la vida en el planeta?” Pero también es una pregunta inmediata y práctica que impacta todo nuestro trabajo diario.El partido Workers World Party/Partido Mundo Obrero se inspira en los aumentos masivos en Haití, Líbano, Chile, Colombia, la resistencia al golpe fascista en Bolivia y la lucha constante para defender la revolución bolivariana. La gente del mundo está en las calles manifestando contra el capitalismo, el imperialismo y la opresión.Si bien estos levantamientos masivos son tremendos, los impactos del imperialismo y el capitalismo neoliberal no terminarán sin el crecimiento del movimiento comunista mundial. Como hemos visto a lo largo de la historia, la resistencia masiva al capitalismo y la opresión, liderada por organizaciones comunistas revolucionarias con profundas conexiones en las masas, es el camino hacia el socialismo.Estamos comenzando a ver signos de un movimiento de trabajadores rejuvenecido en los EE. UU. Los maestros de Chicago golpearon contra el racismo y la desigualdad. Los trabajadores de la educación, los trabajadores de bajos salarios, las mujeres, las personas de color, y más de la clase trabajadora, están flexionando el músculo de la huelga. Vimos la huelga más larga de General Motors en décadas. Las campañas sindicalizadas en los EE. UU. continúan ganando. La izquierda está en ascenso.El apoyo al socialismo también está en aumento. Según encuestas recientes, el 70 por ciento de los millennials, personas de 23 a 38 años, votarían por un socialista. Un tercio de los millennials ve el comunismo favorablemente en comparación con el capitalismo. La popularidad del comunismo está creciendo rápidamente.El apoyo de los millennials al comunismo ha aumentado en un 8 por ciento en el último año, y el 35 por ciento de los millennials ve favorablemente al marxismo. El veinte por ciento de los millennials cree que el mundo estaría mejor si se aboliera la propiedad privada. La marea se está volviendo hacia nosotros.Estos son los jóvenes de Black Lives Matter, el movimiento Occupy y el movimiento global de huelga climática. Estos jóvenes se enfrentan a una disminución de la esperanza de vida y al deterioro de los niveles de vida en un imperio en decadencia, racista y genocida.Si bien el socialismo se está volviendo más popular, también lo son el terrorismo de derecha y el fascismo supremacista blanco, organizado por el propio presidente. El llamado a soluciones está en todas partes. Tenemos que demostrar que tenemos las respuestas. A través de nuestros esfuerzos ideológicos y nuestro trabajo en la lucha, necesitamos prevalecer.El camino sin salida de la socialdemocraciaNo somos el único grupo que tiene un camino propuesto hacia el socialismo. Uno de los programas más populares de la socialdemocracia en la actualidad es el Manifiesto del Partido Laborista recientemente publicado, presentado por el Partido Laborista británico dirigido por Jeremy Corbyn. En el período previo a las elecciones parlamentarias del 12 de diciembre, Corbyn abandonó lo que llamó la plataforma laborista “más radical” de la historia. Si bien el documento parece radical durante este período del capitalismo neoliberal, en muchos sentidos es un ejemplo clásico de un programa socialdemócrata en un país imperialista.El programa de Corbyn seguramente será popular entre la gente de clase trabajadora en Gran Bretaña. Promete un un Nuevo Acuerdo Ecológico para abordar la crisis climática: nacionalizar la industria energética, crear un millón de empleos ecológicos sindicalizados, expandir el Servicio Nacional de Salud, aumentar los fondos para la educación, crear un salario mínimo equivalente a $13 por hora, mejorar los derechos de los trabajadores y terminar la precariedad en el trabajo. Curiosamente, Corbyn podría ganar con este programa. Esto sería un paso adelante. ¿Pero el Partido Laborista llevará a los trabajadores hacia el socialismo?La socialdemocracia británica tiene muchos problemas serios. El apoyo de los laboristas al imperialismo, la policía y la patrulla fronteriza deberían sorprender a un lector revolucionario. ¿No es Corbyn el notorio antiimperialista? Algunos pueden recordarlo como el político que voló a la manifestación de Washington DC contra la guerra en Irak en 2003, convocado por Answer y apoyado por WWP. Ha sido visto como un antiimperialista por su defensa de los derechos básicos palestinos y su oposición a la guerra. Sin embargo, el programa del Partido Laborista no se opone a la guerra y al imperio.En la sección final del Manifiesto, Labor describe su enfoque de política exterior en una pieza titulada “Nuevo internacionalismo”. Incluye propuestas como las siguientes: “Realizar una auditoría del impacto del legado colonial de Gran Bretaña para comprender nuestra contribución a la dinámica de violencia e inseguridad en regiones anteriormente bajo el dominio colonial británico”.Al hablar sobre el Imperio Británico que mató a millones de personas en todo el mundo, la palabra “reparaciones” no aparece una vez. ¡Una auditoría por sí sola no comenzará a resolver la crisis del “legado colonial de Gran Bretaña”! En realidad, el programa laborista busca mantener el Imperio. Se lee: “Tenemos el deber de defender la seguridad y la soberanía de nuestros territorios de ultramar, incluidas las Malvinas”. Esta declaración no podría ser un llamado más claro para defender el Imperio. Las Islas Malvinas (llamadas las Falklands por Gran Bretaña) pertenecen a Argentina, no a los británicos. Algunas de las propuestas en esta sección parecen progresivas, como suspender la venta de armas a Arabia Saudita y pedir el fin del bloqueo, la ocupación y los asentamientos israelíes en Palestina. En la misma oración que defiende el derecho de Palestina a existir, el programa viola el derecho del pueblo palestino a la legítima defensa, llamando a los palestinos a “poner fin a los ataques con cohetes y terroristas”.La postura del Partido Laborista sobre la guerra Este “nuevo internacionalismo” es tan traicionero como el aliento de la Segunda Internacional a la Primera Guerra Mundial. Se lee: “El trabajo aumentará la financiación para las operaciones de mantenimiento de la paz de la ONU a £100 millones” ($131 millones), lo que significa más financiación para las tropas como las de Puerto Príncipe que reprimió el movimiento en Haití. Y hay esto: “El Partido Laborista apoya la renovación del disuasivo nuclear Trident”.Tanto decir en contra de la guerra. Corbyn y el Partido Laborista quieren mantener los misiles nucleares apuntando a Rusia. En otras propuestas, los laboristas prometen expandir el complejo militar-industrial.El Partido Laborista propone aumentar el número de policías en 2.000 y culpa al Partido Conservador por subfinanciar a la policía y causar crímenes. Su programa pide “una coordinación más estrecha contra el terrorismo entre la policía y los servicios de seguridad” y pide más patrullas fronterizas.Desafortunadamente, la clase trabajadora global no parece existir para el Partido Laborista. Más bien, el Imperio debería ser reformado para proporcionar mejores servicios a sus ciudadanos de clase trabajadora. Para los socialistas en los Estados Unidos, la cuestión de la solidaridad internacional es aún más crítica. Jacobin, una publicación socialista líder en los Estados Unidos, escribe sobre el Manifiesto del Partido Laborista de manera muy positiva, sin mencionar su apoyo a la policía, la patrulla fronteriza o las fuerzas militares.El Manifiesto del Partido Laborista no es un camino hacia el socialismo, sino un callejón sin salida para defender y modernizar el imperio. En realidad, el socialismo no se logrará mediante elecciones. Se desarrollará como parte de un aumento masivo de la acción de la clase trabajadora. ¿Dónde están las huelgas y manifestaciones que promueven el programa laborista? Sin un movimiento de masas, este programa socialista parlamentario está destinado a decepcionar.Juicio político y las elecciones de 2020Quizás nadie sea más responsable del crecimiento de la popularidad del socialismo que el senador Bernie Sanders. Su programa se ha conectado con estos jóvenes radicales y ha dado voz a la política progresista de una manera que pocos políticos tienen.Sin embargo, en el improbable caso de que Sanders gane las elecciones presidenciales, necesitaría que la clase trabajadora se movilizara para ganar los elementos básicos de Medicare para todos, el Nuevo Acuerdo Ecologico, la Universidad para todos, los impuestos para los ricos y otras partes de su programa.Mientras tanto, la clase dominante de Estados Unidos está en declive. No es probable que haga compromisos. Es más probable que sea represivo, rompa la unidad de la clase trabajadora y se vuelva cada vez más violento en el extranjero para defender su sistema cada vez más tenso.Los procedimientos de juicio político han sido un ataque oculto al movimiento Sanders. Este es un intento de sacar a la gente de las calles y centrar su atención en procedimientos legales aburridos en el Congreso.El mensaje es claro: Nancy Pelosi y los demócratas corporativos proporcionarán “resistencia” a Trump. En realidad, los cargos dudosos e irrelevantes contra el racista, sexista e imperialista Trump pueden movilizar a la derecha y efectivamente permitirle ganar un segundo mandato.Otro término para Trump es bueno para los negocios. A medida que se avecina la próxima crisis económica, la clase dominante exigirá austeridad, más privatizaciones, más sangre y más violencia fascista. No quieren militancia obrera ni un presidente Sanders que se una a los trabajadores en una línea de piquete.En el caso de que Sanders gane, su presidencia se enfrentará a huelgas de capital, derrumbes bursátiles y sabotaje capitalista, junto con movilizaciones fascistas para amenazar cualquier posibilidad de una presidencia progresista.Un propuesto para un sendero hacia el socialismo¿Cómo derrotamos el surgimiento del fascismo en un país construido sobre el genocidio, la supremacía blanca, la esclavitud, el patriarcado y el anticomunismo? ¿Cómo apoyamos las luchas contra el capitalismo, el racismo, el sexismo y todas las formas de opresión y las convertimos en un movimiento para un futuro socialista revolucionario? Esta propuesta demasiadamente simplificada incluye tres partes: una campaña ideológica renovada, movilizaciones continuas y un giro hacia una organización más profunda.En primer lugar, necesitamos una iniciativa ideológica en la que aclaremos y destaquemos nuestro programa. Lo hicimos hasta cierto punto en el 2016 con la campaña presidencial del Workers World Party/Partido Mundo Obrero.Nuestros candidatos, Monica Moorehead y Lamont Lilly, plantearon demandas tales como la abolición de la policía y la Aduana y Control de Inmigración, y el desmantelamiento del Pentágono. Pedimos reparaciones globales por los crímenes del imperio estadounidense. Nos dirigimos al movimiento Black Lives Matter de una manera que ninguna otra campaña hizo.Tenemos que apoyar las luchas por reformas al tiempo que explicamos la necesidad de un cambio revolucionario. En el futuro, debemos explicar por qué Medicare para todos, una reforma importante, no llega lo suficientemente lejos mientras los capitalistas sean dueños de todos los hospitales, medicamentos y, cada vez más, más prácticas médicas.Necesitamos aclarar que al abolir el capitalismo, nos referimos al establecimiento del control de los trabajadores sobre todas las industrias principales (energía, educación, finanzas, transporte y más) y que esto es posible y necesario. Necesitamos sacar este programa más lejos que nunca.Un programa revolucionario no es suficiente. Sabemos que publicar nuestras ideas no impedirá que el imperio estadounidense mate a pueblos indígenas y destruya la vida humana, y toda la vida, en el planeta. Sabemos que el verdadero poder está en las calles.Nuestro partido se ha movilizado con éxito en torno a varias luchas clave durante el año pasado. La construcción de solidaridad con los migrantes/inmigrantes, la conexión con el aumento de las luchas de los trabajadores y la lucha contra los intentos del imperialismo estadounidense de conquistar Venezuela y Bolivia han sido desarrollos significativos.Hemos seguido construyendo solidaridad contra el racismo y el encarcelamiento masivo. Y aplicamos la perspectiva única del partido sobre la centralidad de luchar contra la opresión nacional y el racismo como clave para el éxito de la revolución en los Estados Unidos.Necesitamos ser más audaces. Necesitamos seguir organizando movilizaciones importantes que se presenten en puntos clave para nuestra clase, reconociendo que es multinacional, multigeneracional y multigénero, e incluye a nuestras hermanas y hermanos inmigrantes. Estos deben ser abiertamente campañas y coaliciones anticapitalistas, antiimperialistas, antirracistas y proimmigrantes/migrantes que construyan la solidaridad global de la clase trabajadora.Piense en estas manifestaciones como una huelga global contra el capitalismo y el imperialismo. Cada vez que hay una crisis y los demócratas no convocan a una acción de protesta, tenemos que planear cerrar el sistema con nuestros aliados, incluidos los de la izquierda.Las movilizaciones no son suficientes. Para que nuestro partido tenga éxito, necesitamos hundir nuestras raíces más profundamente en la clase trabajadora. Los camaradas que ganamos a través de nuestras movilizaciones e iniciativas ideológicas deben convertirse en luchadores de confianza para nuestra clase. Necesitamos ser vistos como los mejores organizadores comunitarios, los luchadores sindicales con más principios y los pensadores más claros.Necesitamos una estrategia en la que la gente dedique sus vidas a construir las organizaciones de la clase trabajadora que llevarán a cabo la revolución aquí. Estos incluyen sindicatos, asambleas de trabajadores y personas, organizaciones comunitarias y grupos de estudio … La organización profunda, el trabajo de construir relaciones con los líderes de nuestra clase, es nuestra única arma.Finalmente, debemos seguir siendo la voz más fuerte para la unidad marxista-leninista. Debemos seguir siendo un partido de principios, no sectario, que intenta construir una unidad y solidaridad marxista-leninista más amplia entre las organizaciones comunistas. Nuestros camaradas en Bolivia y en toda América Latina no merecen menos.Necesitamos una unidad real y práctica. Las crisis de este período requieren un mayor nivel de comunicación, deliberación y unidad entre las fuerzas más avanzadas de la izquierda.Finalmente, no perdamos la esperanza. La desmoralización puede ser la enfermedad más grave para un partido comunista. Creo que ganaremos, y espero que tú también lo hagas.¡Construyendo un Mundo Obrero! ¡Socialismo o muerte!last_img read more

INFB Confident Property Tax won’t Fund Roads Bill

first_img FB road funding updateThe past week in the Indiana House of Representatives it was all quiet on the road funding front. But work continues behind the scenes with ongoing talks by Senate and House members and constituents about possible amendments to bills put forth. Justin Schneider at Indiana Farm Bureau was happy to tell a Friday conference call that one possible funding mechanism for roads appears to be going away.“A couple of weeks ago, we reported that there was a bill that got through the Senate, that got through committee and had property tax levying authority as a financing mechanism for road funding. I think we’re going to see that be changed,” Schneider explained. “We’ve worked on that and there’s no official word. I’ve not seen any amendments, but I think that’s the direction that is going to go, which is positive news for us. We’ll support a lot of things for road funding for our policy, but property tax is not one of them.”Schneider also outlined a House Republican Twitter effort to highlight the need for long term road funding legislation. Farmers and rural residents who frequently encounter potholes can help with the #indianapotholes campaign.“Whoever sends in the best photo, that photo is going to be blown up and recognized on the day they pass 1002. So, we would love for our members to engage on that and we really need some pictures of rural roads. Holes anywhere, blacktop, gravel roads, whatever it is. Chairman (Tim) Brown even in response to a tweet I put out the other day had responded back that they would love to have some pictures of holes in gravel roads. I know you all know where those are. Video footage also works well,” Schneider added. “I’ve seen some of that where people had their phones or dashcams going while they were driving down the road and you could just watch their vehicles bounce from hitting all the uneven pavement and potholes.”HB 1002 is the transportation infrastructure funding bill authored by Rep. Edmond Soliday where funding is through a fuel tax rate increase.Schneider is Director of State Government Relations at Indiana Farm Bureau.

A year ago, No. 13 Baylor edged out TCU 29-23 in a triple overtime thriller.This year, both teams enter the game in the midst of mediocre seasons. The Horned Frogs sit at 1-3 after the 33-14 loss to Oklahoma while Baylor is just 1-2, with only a win over 0-5 Kansas to its name.“They’re not used to losing,” Patterson said of his players. “You’re 1-3, so how do you fix that? So we’re trying to find the best ways to get back on the horse.”In light of that, here are three ways TCU can “get back on the horse” and back into the winner’s circle this Saturday:1. Establish the runLed by Terrel Bernard, Baylor’s linebacker core has wreaked havoc on opposing offenses in 2020. The Bears have three linebackers that rank in the top ten of the Big 12 in tackles per game.Bernard ranks first in that category, averaging 13.3 tackles per game (42 total). The junior has also been effective getting to the quarterback, totaling 3.5 sacks on the year.Alongside Bernard, linebackers Jalen Pitre and Dillon Doyle have combined for 16 more tackles per game.In the secondary, defensive back JT Woods has provided a safety net for the Bears, recording a conference-high two interceptions and a pass breakup thus far.The reliable nature of Baylor’s linebackers combined with Woods’s prowess in coverage have put the Bears at fourth overall in the Big 12 in total defense, giving up just 367.3 yards per game. Where they stand out is their pass defense, which ranks third in the conference. Baylor struggles to defend the run, though, allowing 154 yards on the ground per game. Coming off one of its worst rushing performances in recent history (25 carries for 75 yards), TCU will need to establish the run early to keep the Bears on their toes and open up opportunities for quarterback Max Duggan through the air.To do this, the Frogs will need to lean on running backs Kendre Miller and Darwin Barlow, who have proven to be efficient on the ground with 5.5 and 4.8 yards per carry, respectively.2. Find the end zoneScoring, especially early in games, has been a significant struggle for TCU this season. The Frogs rank second-to-last in the conference in scoring offense, putting up an average of 23.8 points per game with 12 total touchdowns scored.This struggle to put up significant points has largely been due to slow starts, as TCU has scored seven points in the first half of each of their three losses. In their one win, the Frogs nearly matched their game average with 20 points in the first half alone against No. 9 Texas.On top of that, despite the Frogs leading the nation in red zone scoring percentage (1.250), they have eight attempts this season in the red zone. “I think offensively we’ve been able to move the ball through and through, but we’ve got to play in the red zone,” Patterson said.With Baylor averaging 28 points a game in their three games played in 2020, it will be crucial for the Frogs to find the red zone earlier and more frequently if they want to leave Waco with a win.3. Prevent big playsIn each of TCU’s losses this year, a handful of specific defensive lapses significantly changed the outcome of the game.The Frogs have given up 17 plays of 32 or more yards this season.“Defensively, you’ve got to cut out the big plays. You do that, you’ve got a chance,” Patterson said. “Ninety-five percent of the time, the plays we’re playing, we’re playing really well; but you can’t give up those three to five plays a ballgame.”The electricity of running back Trestan Ebner represents a threat in this area for Baylor. In the Bears’ season opener against Kansas, the senior returned two kickoffs for touchdowns, earning Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Week. Ebner also scored that day on a 35-yard pass from quarterback Charlie Brewer.The Frogs will need to contain Ebner and the rest of the Bears to prevent them from gaining the momentum from big plays that their previous opponents have so often done this season.TCU and Baylor are set to face off Saturday at McLane Stadium in Waco. Kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m., and the game will be aired on ESPN2. Taylor’s monster slam highlights big weekend for TCU Athleticslast_img read more
