About us:

The People's Tribune is devoted to the proposition that an economic system that can't or won't feed, clothe and house its people ought to be and will be changed. To that end, this paper is a tribune of the people. It is the voice of millions struggling for survival. It strives to educate politically those millions on the basis of their own experience. It is a tribune to bring them together, to create a vision of a better world, and a strategy to achieve it.

Cover Story

A new year -- a new struggle

The coming of the new year is traditionally a time for optimism, for hope, for looking forward. Certainly the richest Americans have something to celebrate. Most of the rest of us, especially the poorest among us, are facing a bleaker future. Still, we, the people, have reason to hope, because the new year offers us an opportunity to take our struggle for life and liberty to a higher level.


Heat costs hit the roof!
Nationalize the energy industry

Their home had no heat. This is only one of the many outrageous and unnecessary human tragedies that will unfold this winter because of the greed of the energy corporations. The price of natural gas is up 40 to 50 percent. Millions of Americans are going without meals and medicine to pay heat bills, turning their thermostats down to dangerous levels, and many will die. And what about the homeless, who are freezing to death in the streets?
