Patrick O'Connor | After four disastrous years of US military occupation, Bill Moyers’ April 25th PBS special “Buying the War” attempted to hold the mainstream US media accountable for its complicity in selling the war on Iraq to the US public. Moyers documented how the US media, with The New York Times in a leading role, bowed to financial and political pressure, succumbed to an environment of patriotism and fear of terrorism, and uncritically reported false US government claims. Tragically, despite the terrible consequences of 60 years of Israeli oppression of the Palestinian people, there is still no significant movement to hold the US mainstream media accountable for a similar, dramatic failure in covering Israel and Palestine, and for its complicity in the US’ uncritical support for Israel.
Aftershock Action Alliance | September 11th wasn’t first and Katrina wasn’t the last. Capitalism, Nation states and a culture of consumerism have conspired to make our planet more and more unstable. The fear inspired by disasters plays into the hands of those destroying people, animals and the planet for profit. Our governments (technologies, religious leaders, etc.) can not protect us but they can certainly get us killed. The time is now to organize to protect our friends, neighborhoods, and our planet. more... 1 Comments

As the New York City Rent Guidelines Board (RGB) begins to debate how much more the millions of tenants who are protected by rent stabilization laws will be paying when leases come due next year, they will be factoring some interesting and conflicting data (see this article from last week’s Times). The RGB’s staff puts out a few reports each year to help inform the debate on how much rents should go up, and the Income and Affordability Study released last month reveals that while the NYC economy is strong, incomes among rent stabilized tenants are stagnating (i.e., the rich are getting richer and the poor are... you know the rest). After first citing “increasing Gross City Product, falling unemployment rates and public assistance cases, and increasing employment levels,” it then acknowledges “an increase in the number of food stamp recipients…falling real wages and escalating gross rent-to-income ratios.”more... 0 Comments

JK Canepa | Gerson wants to see if the community wants to save the Children's Magical Garden, the only garden I know of that's dedicated just for children in the city, and one of the very very few in the Lower East Side below Houston Street. He wants to know if he should ask Serge Hoyda, the developer who owns 1/3 of the garden, to keep the existing garden as is by donation or exchange for the land, making all the children very happy! Or if we'd be just as happy to have the garden bulldozed by Serge, and replaced with an apartment building with over 70% luxury units.
