Progressive Democrat Newsletter, Special Passover 2011 Edition
Today I honor and discuss both Passover, and an event that took place on Passover 1943 that in many ways embodies the true meaning of Passover.
For those who want to keep focusing on politics, the recall efforts are in full swing in Wisconsin. We have the chance to take several state senate seats from radical, recalled Republicans and have three seats to defend from their recall efforts. We also have a special election for Assembly to try and take. You can help with these efforts through my Retaking Wisconsin Act Blue Page. NOW is the time to fight back.
Here is this week's newsletter:
Passover and Jewish Origins
On Hitler's Birthday in 1943: The Warsaw Ghetto Uprising
And given Republican attacks on unions, I think it is best to remember once more this little bit of Jewish-American-Labor history: A Turning Point in the American Labor Movement
