Sir! No Sir! Debuts in New York, Explodes Vietnam War Myths

John Tarleton | Combining Vietnam-era footage and present-day interviews with former G.I. resisters now in their 50s and 60s, Sir! No Sir! brings back to life an unprecedented multi-racial, predominantly working class movement that erupted spontaneously, rocked the U.S. political and military establishment and then disappeared within a few short years. It also raises a haunting question: how did this remarkable movement disappear so completely from the popular memory to be replaced by the endlessly repeated myth of a “noble cause” betrayed by elitist student protesters? || Soldiers in Revolt || Col.

Neighborhood Retail Alliance | It appears that the leadership of TWU Local 100 has finally gotten the contract vote that it sought two months ago. According to NY 1 the rank-and-file has overwhelming "ratified" (71% in favor) the contract that was narrowly defeated in January.

What Immigrants Must Learn from the Black Civil Rights Movement ... and Soon

Juan Santos, Mexica Tlahtolli | "I'm not an American. I'm one of the twenty-two million Black people who are the victims of Americanism. One of the 22 million Black people who are the victims of democracy--nothing but disguised hypocrisy. So I'm not standing here speaking to you as an American, or a patriot, or a flag-saluter, or a flag-waver--no, not I. I'm speaking as a victim of this American system. And I see America through the eyes of the victim. I don't see any American dream; I see an American nightmare." -- MALCOLM X

New NYPD Surveillance Cameras

SCP administrative services | The accompanying picture is taken from ground level and so hardly shows what monsters they really are: a pair of cameras -- they now come in pairs -- both of them globes, which means each one can swivel round 360 degrees, look beneath themselves and zoom-in so well that they can read a cigarette pack from as far as 1,000 feet away. The AP's looking-up perspective doesn't allow us to see where they cameras can see, that is, into what windows can they look. 30 feet up is certainly high enough to look into the windows of any floor of a standard tenement (three to five storey) building. more...  6 Comments

The Immigrants and the Barricades

Stanley W. Rogouski | On Monday, in lower Manhattan, I saw two unwritten versions of the future. On one hand, a great mass of people from every ethnic group in the city and almost that many foreign countries came together to protest the obscenity that is HH4437. On the other hand, in the form of hundreds of police barricades, a police force the size of a small army, and in the ability of a sophisticated and repressive big city government to shame and intimidate 100,000 people I saw the power of the state to make HH4437 a reality. more...  11 Comments
