April 4th Actions for NYC
April 1, 2011 · Here is a list of what is taking place on April 4th in New York City:

On April 4, 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in Memphis, where he had gone to stand with sanitation workers demanding their dream: The right to bargain collectively for a voice at work and a better life. The workers were trying to form a union with AFSCME.

Beginning with worship services over the April 1 weekend, and continuing through the week of April 4, unions, people of faith, civil and human rights activists, students and other progressive allies will host a range of community- and workplace-focused actions.

Join us in solidarity with working people in Wisconsin, Ohio, Indiana and dozens of other states where well-funded, right-wing corporate politicians are trying to take away the rights Dr. King gave his life for: the freedom to bargain, to vote, to afford a college education and justice for all workers, immigrant and native-born. Itís a day to show movement. Teach-ins. Vigils. Faith events. A day to be creative, but clear: We are one.

About Right is Wrong
When Right is Wrong! began in July of 1999 it was done out of a sense of frustration. The major media, either by design or incompetence, had refused to report on the rapid rise of the right throughout the world. In addition, right wing groups were using the Internet to spread their messages. Voices presenting alternative views to this right wing barrage were few and far between.

Right is Wrong! was dedicated to tracking the right in all its guises. News of the militia movement, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, anti-abortion thugs, union busters, gay bashers, misogynists, racists, anti-Semites, and fascists were featured each day both on the web site and in a daily e-mail digest.

With the theft of the presidential election of 2000 and the horror of 9-11 a change of focus gradually took place. The Telecommunications Act of 1996 and the consolidation of ownership in all of the media were beginning to bear fruit for the forces of evil. The media was no longer asking key questions after 9-11. The Patriot Act, Homeland Security, and the rush to war in Iraq were steamrolled through with little real debate in the media.

The primary threat to freedom was internal. Right Is Wrong! began to feature news and analysis from new sources. Lines seemed to become blurred. Some sources from the left were shying away from asking important questions, while sources from the right were not.

It became abundantly clear that no source was "pure." Each story had to be judged on its merits regardless of its source. Information was being unearthed by both right wing and left wing sources while that very same news was being "ignored" by the mainstream.

The search for the truth is a tough one. It means asking the hard questions. It means examining the words and deeds of those you have grown comfortable with over the years as well as those you have learned to despise. There are no sacred cows.

Looking for connections leads us to seeing some horrific truths. We all would love to have faith in our leaders. But recent events force us to look for the big picture. And as we delve into what has really caused recent events, Right is Wrong! has developed a real problem with "coincidence" theorists.

It is unknown who first coined the coincidence theorist phrase first, but whether it was Michael Parenti, John Judge or someone else, the fact remains that the search for truth brings us beyond coincidence.

Right Is Wrong! is not about being a liberal or leftist alternative. Right Is Wrong! is about searching for the truth, wherever that quest may take us.
