Why you should read the Peoples Weekly World/Nuestro Mundo


What readers and leaders say:

2086.jpgThe PWW prints lots of news other newspapers don’t — the good stuff, all that stuff other newspapers just don’t run. Read the PWW! —Anne McLemore, president of Pittsburgh Coalition of Labor Union Women

2087.jpgNearly every issue of the People’s Weekly World I find an article that I learn from. —Pete Seeger, musician and a lifelong subscriber, going back to the Daily Worker

2088.jpgThe anti-Iraq-war movement mushroomed in response to the Bush administration’s drive to war. The PWW has reported on how and where this movement has flourished in the last four years: in the labor movement, the city halls and the streets. And the PWW will be indispensable in charting the path to end this war and occupation especially in the turbulent waters of the 2008 elections. —Judith Le Blanc, United for Peace and Justice national co-chair

2089.jpgI was just reading the PWW’s front page article on affirmative action. We read it often here, so we can answer the right wing’s agenda against the people. We need a strong voice out there for working people. If you want another voice that is objective, then read the PWW. —Florida state Sen. Anthony “Tony” Hill, former secretary-treasurer of the Florida AFL-CIO

2090.jpgWherever workers are in struggle, they find the PWW regularly reporting issues and viewpoints that are seldom covered by the regular media. For us, the PWW has been and always will be the people’s voice. —Eliseo Medina, SEIU executive vice president, Los Angeles

What means so much about the PWW is there are an awful lot of people in politics who ought to understand more than they do about the struggle we are involved in. They don’t understand the fight against corporate power and the fight for the people is the same fight whether you talk about education, housing or health care. Unless we understand this, we can’t make real progress and the kinds of changes that are really going to make a difference in people’s lives. —New York Assemblymember Dick Gottfried
