The NAFTA flu

Yes, that's what folks are calling it as it becomes clearer and clearer that U.S. agribusiness--that is, U.S. imperialism, personified in this case by the Smithfield pork conglomerate and its NAFTA-enabled operations in Mexico--is at the root of the so-called swine flu. Meanwhile, Fox News and others of its reactionary ilk are trying to whip up a renewed, intensified campaign against Central American immigrant workers in this country. Reason # 537 to step into the streets on May Day, tomorrow, in solidarity.
