Interview with John C. Philo, legal director with the Maurice and Jane Sugar Law Center for Economic and Social Justice, conducted by Scott Harris

detroit

Detroit, an American city that once was the hub of the world’s leading automobile manufacturers became the largest municipality in U.S. history to enter into Chapter 9 bankruptcy after federal judge Steven Rhodes handed down his ruling on Dec. 3 in a controversial case being watched closely around the country.The ruling allows bankruptcy proceedings to move forward over the objections of 48 labor union groups and public employee retirees who had urged Judge Rhodes to reject Detroit's eligibility for bankruptcy. Opponents of the ruling have already taken steps to appeal the case. As part of the bankruptcy process, Judge Rhodes announced he will allow Detroit, which is $18 billion in debt, to cut pension benefits – but emphasized that he will only authorize pension cuts if he finds them to be fair and equitable.  Story continues

As the world mourned the passing of Nelson Mandela, the much loved father of post-apartheid South Africa, 100 current or former heads of state joined tens of thousands of his country’s citizens at a national memorial service held in his honor at Soweto’s FNB Soccer Stadium. Since he died on Dec. 5, the legacy of the 95-year-old symbol of South Africa’s struggle for equality and justice has been the subject of much media coverage in the U.S. and around the globe.  Story continues
