"Pope Francis took a recent trip to the
United States and met with both religious
and political leaders. What does this trip
tell us about the state of the Catholic Church
today? What are we to make of his progressive
stances on the economy and the environment?
The African nation of Burkina Faso experienced
a near coup when Regiment of Presidential
Security forces (RSP) attempted to unseat
Burkinabe President Michael Kafando." Editorial Board member and Columnist, Bill Fletcher, Jr., is the host of The Global African on Telesur-English, a Senior Scholar with the Institute for Policy Studies, the immediate past president of  TransAfricaForum, and the author of “They’re Bankrupting Us” - And Twenty Other Myths about Unions. He is also the co-author of Solidarity Divided: The Crisis in Organized Labor and a New Path toward Social Justice, which examines the crisis of organized labor in the USA. Other Bill Fletcher, Jr. writing can be found at Contact Mr. Fletcher and BC.
