Sarah Stuteville | We’re in a known minefield in the forest, perhaps one Aki Ra laid himself, and he’s scratching intently at the hardened clay earth with a hatchet. It takes him 20 minutes to locate the first mine, laying casually on the forest floor roughly 200 feet from Chrun’s only source of water. It looks like a small green plastic toy, and it’s hard to imagine that it’s powerful enough to kill or maim.

Nicholas Powers | The individual versus the crowd is the great American myth. It is a fantasy of that connects to our identity as consumers. Most of us remember the classic Cold War image of Soviet workers standing in long lines for soap. Life without capitalism, we’re shown, is waiting in a hungry crowd. The only cure for state incompetence is the marketplace, an economic theory that David Harvey writes about in A Brief History of Neo-liberalism. It’s “the assumption that individual freedoms are guaranteed by the freedom of the marketplace.” more... 2 Comments

Jason Gooljar | There was a room filled with love for a woman gone to soon. A woman who stood in front of a bulldozer to protect a Palestinian family's home and was murdered. A woman who we must demand justice for. A woman who's killer, a soldier who drove that bulldozer must be brought to justice. A woman who left Olympia, Washington because she wanted to connect with the people of Palestine and see the truth. I remain in awe of her and after hearing her parents speak I realize where she got it from. more... 4 Comments
BikeBlog | "So now we look at the front page of the village voice and there is a anarchy symbol made out of bike parts and a huge photo in the middle of a masked rider with a paper bag over his head.
