Culture

Save Inca Cultural Center Timisoara, Romania

a | INCA Center is a non-profit, all-voluntary place dedicated to the
alternative culture. The place has hosted in the past 3 and half
years over 150 events: concerts, art exhibitions, projections & movie
nights, performance, festivals, etc. also for next year already we
have planned many workshops, conferences, concerts and others. If
city will evict us, and there is huge chance for this to happen, one
of the few alternative places in the region will disappear and will
leave us with no place to host all these events. Because we have
strong promises that we will never get a second place from the city.

Also we know that the only thing that will make the city change their
mind is three things:
- International protests at Romanian embassies and consulates
- Strong international and national response through email/fax/phone
- The scandal goes to the media more...  0 Comments

the g-string: Men vs. Women or Love vs. Materialism? (Indypendent)

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

The Mainstreaming of Porn (Indypendent)

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

French Rappers are the “Loudspeakers” of the Ghetto (Indypendent)

Antigone Now (Indypendent)

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

IMAGES: New Jersey Bear Hunt 2005

Erin Siegal | At daybreak this morning, the second New Jersey bear hunt in the last 35 years kicked off in Wawayanda State Park in Sussex County, NJ. The first day of the six-day hunt is toted as an attempt controlling the population of black bears regarded as nuisances. The species have made a comeback from the brink of extinction, but are now being forced into areas populated by humans due to the slow creep of suburban sprawl, and human encroachment upon the bear’s natural habitat. Black bears are regarded as nuisances because of their tendency to raid improperly disposed human garbage bags in search of food. more...  3 Comments

Chicago FBI Alerted to Politically Motivated Hack

RepublicanCrap.com Initial Statement | Chicago, IL, December 4, 2005 — Around 12:00 AM on Sunday, Chicago based RepublicanCrap.com was electronically attacked and invaded by politically motivated hackers.

This is fraud, it is an intrusion, it costs money, and at the same time it justifies what RepublicanCrap.com does. This hack proves what we are up against when we raise our voices and try to make this country a better place." more...  3 Comments
