Chris Anderson | By all accounts, including the Times' own internal investigation into the circumstances behind Miller's jailing, Judy seems to be the last person any honest journalist would want arguing their constitutional rights. To add insult to injury, the people who have done the most to shed light on l'affaire de Miller-- the participatory journalists and the bloggers-- probably wouldn't even be covered under the Federal law that Miller and the Times are so passionately promoting. more... 0 Comments

Jeremy Scahill | Just when you think that President Bush couldn't out-Saddam Saddam any more, he goes and does something that proves you wrong. If any Iraqis caught the hilarious videoconference today between Bush at the White House and troops from the 42nd Infantry Division in Tikrit, it may have seemed like a high-tech version of a familiar scene from the old days when Saddam used to travel to Tikrit to feel (and more importantly to have others feel) his greatness. more... 2 Comments

October 22 Coalition-NY | 10th Annual National Day of Protest to Stop Police Brutality, Repression and the Criminalization of a Generation
by Jeffrey A. Cabusao | Filipino critic E. SAN JUAN's new book of essays, WORKING THROUGH THE CONTRADICTIONS (Bucknell University Press), engages with, among other topics, the problem of cultural revolution in the Philippines and the plight of Overseas Filipino Workers--part of the 10-million-strong Filipino diaspora around the world. Without revolutionary theory, Lenin said, there cannot be any worthwhile revolutionary praxis. This is a worthy contribution to the formation of that theory in practice.
Visual Resistance | Vallone Jr. — who inherited his council seat from his father — was one of the main hot-air opponents of Marc Ecko’s street party and made a big stink about Cope2’s Time Magazine billboard. He constantly bleats to whatever reporters will listen about the menace of graffiti-writing hoodlums run amok. Now he’s playing the white-collar Dirty Harry at press conferences, claiming Kiko caused $100,000 in damage. [Read More] more... 0 Comments
OnNYturf | Despite the rosy press conference at city hall announcing the new teacher contract, how teachers feel about the proposal is still up in the air. If recent posts at Edwize, the UFT community site, over the past few days are any indication, there is still convincing to be done. The Teacher's Deligate Assembly will vote on ratifying the contract proprosal tomorrow. Assuming that happens, it will then be put before the teachers for a vote.

Chris Anderson | Watergate-- or rather, the myth of what Watergate was-- is dead. Like many aging corpses, the myth shows signs of a long, slow decline into irrelevant senility; nevertheless, the final blows have been painful to watch.
Robin Milim | This fall, ten caravans of people with AIDS, family members, supporters and activists will cross the country, stopping in large and small cities and towns for HIV/AIDS education, awareness and media events to talk about an end to the AIDS pandemic, as they move towards our nation’s capital.

T. Soundararajan Anita Johnson, and Jeff Chang | The bigger picture, many community activists argue, is a resettlement policy that looks like selective depopulation. In New Orleans and parts of the Gulf Coast, predominantly poor communities and communities of color are being dispersed, as families are scattered across the country with one-way tickets and no way to get back home.
