Blog Post to AFL-CIO

Hugo Chavez of Venezuela has extended the olive branch to US Labor and Leaders.

We need to work in unity and cooperation with our brothers and sisters around the world, which includes acceptance of and participation with the Bolivarian Movement (ALBA) and their financial arm BancoSur and extended into Africa BancASA as a "fair trade" alternative to the World Bank and IMF. The extension of such to all communities would go a long way towards giving us the ability to plan and implement an ecological economic democratic redevelopment plan based on the needs of all workers, communities, and the poor.

To face the the crises of financial meltdown, resource constraints, and population pressures, we need to fundamentally restructure the financial/economic system.

The fundamental mission and principles need to be inclusion, humanity, equity, quality of life, environmental/public health and wellness, sustainability, and peace. We need benevolent direction in forming an economic democracy that recognizes the need for village/neighborhood sovereignty and equity, inculcates, fosters and facilitates inter-community, inter-regional and world unity and cooperation.

We need a financial/economic system that is dedicated foremost to meeting peoples' needs and reasonable wants and replaces the greed and hoarding based Capitalist system of exploitation of people and resources that takes unfair advantage of accumulated competitive advantage to benefit from such and from equity trading, usurious loans and inequitable property and asset holding practices with an Equity Union, a financial/economic system that fosters and facilitates equity sharing for community betterment programs and projects.

We need to fundamentally change the ways and means in which resources are allocated to and within communities and within and among economic sectors.

I will follow this post with a brief synopsis describing in some detail the fundamentals of such an equity union.

Thank you.

In Peace, Friendship, Community, Cooperation, and Solidarity,
