Image source: Getty Images. The recent stock market recovery has boosted the portfolios of many investors. For example, the FTSE 100 has made gains of around 10% in the past month.However, the index and many other UK shares continue to trade significantly below their all-time highs. With the stock market having a solid track record of rallying after its declines, there may still be opportunities to benefit from its likely long-term growth.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Through investing £500 per month, or any other amount, in a diverse range of dividend-paying stocks at low prices, there may be opportunities for an investor to capitalise on the long-term rallies of UK shares across the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250.Investing money in cheap shares after the stock market recoveryThe recent stock market recovery has largely been due to improving investor sentiment. However, investors have maintained a cautious stance on a number of different sectors. They include industries such as banking, energy and travel.Companies in those sectors are struggling at present to deliver improving sales and profit growth. As such, it’s possible to unearth cheap stocks within them, as well as other sectors.Buying cheap shares in high-quality companies can be a profitable long-term move. They may offer scope for capital growth over the long run, while their solid balance sheets and competitive advantages may shield them from economic challenges in the present. As such, investing money in them ahead of a likely long-term stock market recovery could be a shrewd move.Buying dividend stocks for more than a passive incomeFTSE 100 and FTSE 250 shares that could benefit the most in a long-term stock market recovery may include dividend stocks. Currently, many UK shares offer relatively high yields after the stock market crash. However, they could produce more than just a passive income over the coming years.Demand for UK dividend shares may rise in the long run. This is because low interest rates mean other mainstream assets such as cash and bonds provide disappointing returns. Similarly, high house prices mean the yields available on buy-to-let property may be somewhat unappealing.Rising demand for high-yielding UK dividend shares could push their prices higher. And that will allow them to deliver impressive total returns in a long-term stock market recovery.Diversifying across UK sharesOf course, investing money in UK shares ahead of a likely long-term stock market recovery may be a risky move in the short run. Recent gains for the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 haven’t changed the economic outlook, with Brexit and coronavirus likely to negatively impact on UK shares over the near term.Therefore, investing money in a wide range of stocks could be a shrewd move. It may reduce overall risks and help to provide a more attractive rate of growth in the coming years. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

Heroes of the struggle for health care

first_imgFighting to win the basic right to health care for all in the United States. Demonstrations like these blocked attempts to gut already inadequate access to health care.Who are the real heroes in the struggle to stop the attacks on the health care system?Although the corporate media hailed three Republican senators and 48 Democrats for defeating the “skinny” repeal of key parts of the Affordable Care Act on July 28, that’s not the real story.It was the activists who organized, marched, sat in, got arrested, made phone calls, wrote emails and raised a ruckus who made the difference, not the politicians. The grass-roots movement fought hard against all Republican “repeal and/or not replace” anti-ACA bills. Organizations began mobilizing to save Obamacare last December. In the states, people rallied at town hall meetings, besieged congress members’ offices and used social media to save the ACA.After a National Day of Action on March 23 in Washington, D.C., and 40 cities, the struggle continued. Activists not only targeted anti-ACA Republicans, but also pressured Democrats to protect health coverage.Planned Parenthood, Housing Works, National Nurses United, UltraViolet and many other groups organized against every right-wing attempt to overturn or weaken the ACA. Hospitals, especially rural facilities that depend on Medicaid reimbursements; doctors and other medical personnel; health advocacy organizations; as well as community and senior groups, such as AARP, opposed gutting the ACA. LatinAmerican School of Medicine debt-free graduate fromDetroit. ADAPT: ‘Save Medicaid!’Special recognition must be given to the heroes of National ADAPT (Americans Disabled for Attendant Programs Today), which organized sit-ins and die-ins in Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s office and at Republican senators’ offices countrywide. TV and online media showed courageous activists, many of them women, being arrested and often mistreated by police.Chants of “Save Medicaid” resounded at their 40 actions, where they put their bodies on the line to save the program, a life-and-death issue for them. Medicaid provides medical care, caretakers, equipment and more to 10 million people with disabilities. (Alternet, July 28)Protests stepped up around the country from July 17 through July 27. Hundreds were arrested in Washington during that period. On the July 25 National Day of Action, when senators voted to take up the first anti-ACA bill, 95 people were arrested. Police grabbed 31 protesters in the Senate chambers as they chanted, “Kill the bill! Don’t kill us!” Then 64 people were arrested in the Hart Senate Office Building, as they yelled they would “rather go to jail than die without Medicaid.” National ADAPT and the National Center on Independent Living/Advocacy co-coordinated these protests and others on the following two days, with support from allies.This resistance is in response to seven years of attempts by reactionaries to get rid of Obamacare. The right wing has been so hostile to the ACA that misogynist officials threatened to physically assault the two Republican women senators who opposed the law’s repeal.White male millionaire senators, led by McConnell, conspired to concoct bills to overturn or severely limit the ACA’s benefits. Under those bills from 16 million to 32 million people could have lost health insurance, including Medicaid recipients. Every bill would have harmed people with disabilities; African-American, Latinx and other oppressed people; members of the LGBTQ community; women; children; seniors; and low-income workers.However, all Congress members made sure to exempt themselves and their staffs from cuts to their comprehensive, government-financed health care coverage.ACA benefits womenThe ACA brought health coverage to over 20 million people. At least 10 million got Medicaid through its expansion, while many people got government subsidies to purchase insurance. The ACA bars using pre-existing conditions as an excuse for denial of coverage.Women benefit, as the law requires employers’ insurance plans to pay for contraception. The law’s elimination of co-payments for mammograms has resulted in more breast cancers being diagnosed at an earlier stage than pre-ACA. (New York Times, June 27) The ACA also mandates funding for Planned Parenthood, an organization despised by the right wing, which provides basic health care to over 5 million low-income people, the majority women.However, the ACA is a capitalist measure. It’s based on people buying coverage from insurance companies, whose goal is to maximize profits. Some plans are very expensive, with high premiums and deductibles. Hard hit are those who must buy costly policies, but cannot obtain subsidies. People who do not buy insurance are fined — but the very reason for not purchasing insurance is usually prohibitive cost.The ACA mandated states to expand Medicaid, but the Supreme Court in 2012 allowed them to opt out, which 19 reactionary state governments did. This has left millions of low-income workers, disproportionately African American and Latinx, without health insurance or subsidies. Thousands of former prisoners have no coverage. Undocumented workers are barred from having Medicaid — and even from purchasing private policies. In some states, no insurer will sell policies as part of the ACA.This is the wealthiest country in the world with the most expensive medical care system. Nearly all other advanced industrialized countries have some form of health care system, such as Britain’s National Health Service, which provides care to everyone, with residents taxed to pay for it.But in the U.S., the super-rich are determined to obtain huge tax cuts for themselves, and are aiming to gut hundreds of billions of dollars from Medicaid and other government programs in order to do so.Typical polyclinic for specialized care, Havana. Cuban internationalist doctor in Haiti. ‘Medicare for all!’An improvement for the U.S. would be “Medicare for all.” Because of rising consciousness around the country due to the recent struggle, 60 percent of the U.S. population now supports government-sponsored health care. Many people are catching on to the idea of a single-payer system. The health care advocacy movement would advance the struggle by pushing for this.Medicare for all is worth fighting for and is possible under capitalism. It would be easier and less costly to administer than the current system and would cover everyone.Health care is a human right. It should be provided to everyone like sanitation and fire-fighting services, libraries, public schools, roads and parks.The optimum solution would be a system of socialized medicine, resembling what Cuba provides for its people. Quality care there is accessible to every person and is subsidized by the government. There are no profits going to insurance or pharmaceutical companies, and health care is not a commodity to be bought and sold. It is a service provided to the people.There are many worthy proposals on how to improve the ACA and lower medical costs, but the malevolent right wing continues to maneuver to weaken the law. After the recent survival of the ACA, the Trump administration is threatening to withhold payments to insurers that aid low-income customers and to let Obamacare “implode.” Tom Price, head of the Department of Health and Human Services, has “made changes that would reduce benefits and the number of people signing up for coverage.” (New York Times editorial, July 29)For now, activists know they must be vigilant and keep the pressure on the government. DC Metro ADAPT activist Laura Halverson vowed, “We’re not stopping. We know that the fight is not over, so we’re going to keep on keeping on.” (Alternet)FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The NYPD’s Big Lie

first_imgProtest demands “Defund the Police” in New York City on June 19, Juneteenth.To put the Police Department’s spasm of slander directed at the Black Lives Matter movement in New York City in perspective, it’s useful to recall an experience from nearly three decades ago. Anti-war forces in 1991 established a popular tribunal to protest the criminal war against Iraq unleashed by U.S. political and military leaders and their allies. At this tribunal, two undercover agents in the audience — disguised as Danish media but obviously not, given their accents and actions — harassed and bullied an Iraqi who had testified on the bombing deaths of much of his family. When organizers tried to stop the harassment, they were surprised at what these government agents shouted. “Let him speak,” they boomed out, contradicting what they were doing.This “Big Lie” — applied to a small confrontation — was not just hypocrisy. It was an attempt to misdirect and confuse others in the audience. It worked. Some people who heard the encounter believed the organizers, not the agents, were suppressing the Iraqi.This “trick” foreshadowed the NYPD’s current Big Lie that is being shouted out to confuse the public about the cops’ confrontation with the BLM movement. The movement calls for defunding, even for abolishing the police. So the NYPD slanders the movement as “violent” or “anarchist” and dangerous, accusing it of attacking the police. The cops are saying they simply are trying to “keep the peace.”It is a desperate move by the purveyors of state repression to hang onto their $7 billion budget in the U.S.’s biggest city. All it takes to explode this Big Lie is a 20-minute look at the dozens of videos published by the New York Times and much social media. The videos show police actions against demonstrators starting in late May and going into June. These police assaults have only worsened since. Anyone observing the videos and ignoring the lying rants of the NYPD authorities and cop organizations can observe police using clubs and pepper spray against demonstrators, punching and kicking people whom they have already knocked down, even throwing bicycles at them. Like the government agents in the 1990s, the NYPD tries to confuse the public with charges of movement “violence.”The NYPD, like all police departments in capitalist society, is an instrument of state terror. The U.S. police forces in general, descended from those who hunted down enslaved people trying to escape, today serve the capitalist rulers. Police repression, still marked by racism, targets the working class and occupies oppressed communities.To expose the role of the police and fight for abolition, we must highlight the cops’ Big Lie about alleged movement violence. This lie is meant to misdirect public opinion. It blames the movement — the movement aimed at ending racism, white supremacy and police brutality — for the violence caused by the very instrument of state terror itself. Understanding and explaining this true role of the police in class society should help redouble the effort to defund and abolish the police. They must be replaced by an instrument to defend people’s safety that answers to popular organizations instead of to the capitalist ruling class.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
