Visual Resistance | Speaking of badass non-confrontational temporary street art, San Francisco art collective Rebar pulled off an incredible intervention last month by turning a parking space into a park. Armed with rolls of sod, a shade tree, a bench, and nickels for the meter, they created an oasis of greenspace in the middle of downtown. Their explanation is smart as hell and worth reading in full:

His story, “The House That AIDS Built,” revealed that, throughout the 1990s, experimental HIV drugs had been tested on HIV foster children at ICC.

Steve Peacock | There are estimated to be millions of women and children around the world who are forced into the sex industry. Many are transported across the globe against their will. Others, however, enter the business for one reason and one reason only: the money's good. The following piece is the first in a series of excerpts from 'Hotel Dick: Harlots, Starlets, Thieves & Sleaze," a memoir of my five years as a plainclothes house detective -- or "hotel dick," as they are known -- at the Helmsley Palace, New York City's former playground of the wealthy and powerful. more... 5 Comments
Bennett Baumer | The lines are becoming clear in a battle that many see as critical to organized labor’s future on college campuses. On the one side is a powerful university with a billion-dollar endowment, backed by anti-union faculty and reportedly aided by high priced union-busting lawyers. On the other side are more than a thousand members of GSOC, part of United Auto Workers Local 2110, supported by undergraduate and faculty committees, local politicians, the labor movement, prominent academics, religious leaders and thousands of other community members. more... 12 Comments

AMY WOLF | Dowd charges all women with a weakness that only a privileged few are able to consider. This elitism is compounded by her unwillingness to acknowledge the role media plays. She rails on half-starved, “dithery singletons” like Ally McBeal and Carrie Bradshaw, but does not critique the industry and advertisers they exist for. more... 0 Comments
KRISTIN WARTMAN | Pussy sells. Everyone knows that. Lately, however, the objectification of women has gone to a whole new level. Women are now working in tandem with men to produce and exploit the mainstreaming of porn. They’re lining up to participate in, provide and produce porn. It feels like the “if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em” mentality has taken over the minds (and bodies) of women. more... 2 Comments
NICHOLAS POWERS | The Left titled her the Rosa Parks of the antiwar movement. The Right compared her to Walter Cronkite who turned the public against the Vietnam War or to eccentric conspiracist Lyndon LaRouche. Analysts tried to explain her but Sheehan’s power comes from an older time, from the ancient Greek drama Antigone. more... 0 Comments
