However, Big Pharma and Big Insurance enjoy huge profit margins as a result...

[evoz] Ginger Goodwin's grave vandalized !!

The neo-fascists vandals have vandalized Ginger Goodwin's grave by chiseling off the hammer and the sickle symbol.. They are trying to erase history from our collective memory. Others in the past tried the same using concentrations camps.

The stone has been somewhat restored, for now. If you are planning attending the June 22 Miners Memorial Day in Cumberland please consider bringing placards and signs rebuking this vandalism against our labour heroe’s grave.
