onto | The Wetland Activism collective staged a protest and direct action at the Manhattan Mall to expose Victoria's Dirty Secret: Victoria's secret is destroying the forests for its catalogues. Victoria's Dirty Secret. At the protest, the Wetlands collective flyered, chopped up mock trees with its shopping cart monster, entered the mall with banners, were kicked out, not arrested, almost got a massive balloon banner into the store, got it out and hung it outside on 33rd and Brodway for all to see. After that, they headed over to the other Victoria's Secret on 34th and 6th and caused another ruckus inside . . .

Jess Garman | A huge crowd of angry tenants chanted for no increases this year as the NYC Rent Guidelines Board held their final meeting tonight in the basement of the Cooper Union Meeting Hall. Fed up with the unfair manor in which the meeting was held, the activists slowly walked out of the auditorium, not caring what was being said anymore, but satisfied that at least they had made their voices heard. As for the RGB, it approved this city's [second] [correction -ed.] largest rent hikes in 15 years: 4.25% for one-year leases and 7.25% for two-year leases. || RGB: Rent Gouging Bastards || Home Rule Saves Homes more... 18 Comments
FofaF | In what's being spun as further evidence that Rush is a drugstore cowboy, the subtext of this pill-popping episode is quite likely the sexual exploitation some girl down in the Caribbean. Rush hates immigrants, but apparently his tastes don't match his politics... except in the sickest and most obvious ways. more... 2 Comments
Bennett Baumer | At a sleepy June 1 Rent Guidelines Board (RGB) meeting, a few tenant advocates sat idly while the board’s two tenant members made a resolution in support of home rule. Though Mayor Bloomberg is tepidly against the issue – restoring power over rent and eviction laws to city council – no one could foresee how the mayor’s appointed board chairman Marvin Markus would react.

Jess Garman | A demonstration to shut down Guantanamo was held in front of the United States Mission to the United Nations Monday morning. Today, June 26, is set aside as the U.N. Day in Support of Torture Victims and Survivors, and the demonstrators made clear that they stand in support of such a day. However, they do not stand in support of a hypocritical government that is celebrating this day while at the same time holding prisoners in extremely inhumane conditions at Guantanamo, Cuba. 25 members of the group sat down in front of the U.N. Mission, blocking its doors and saying they would stay until the international consensus against these illegal acts is respected, heard and acted upon.|| More Coverage || Movie Review: The Road to Guantanamo more... 2 Comments

Amy Wolf | On any summer weekend at Coney Island, it will smell like hot-dogs, but at the Mermaid Parade, it’s a bigger sausage-fest then usual. Persistent photographers jockeyed for the best shots in the waiting area before the parade. Here they swarmed around sultry sea goddesses and tripped over tails of those who didn’t peek their interest.
