Alex Gourevitch | This is a teach-in in anticipation of the upcoming mid-term elections. Why (Not To) Vote? will examine what voting means and what it's worth in an age marked by terror and diminished expectations. How do we think about voting when the options seem so narrow but few alternative forms of political action seem available? Nobody wants to be mistaken for the merely apathetic non-voter, but voting for the 'least worst' option is hardly an inspiring use of our ballot. Can one be against voting in the name of real democracy, or is that a substanceless, radical pose that makes a mockery of hard won political rights? more... 1 Comments
Modern Pitung | The borough I call home, the Bronx: How my mention of its name used to strike a mysterious sort of terror in the heart of the white man. A recent New York Times article suggests that the sense of terror at the dread phrase "The Bronx" has subsided. Only now I am the one having the sense of terror. more... 7 Comments
eld.j | This year’s Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to ‘the banker of the poor,’ a man whose visionary idea about empowering poor women by making them economically independent has helped tens of millions of people and created a micro-loan system now copied by over one hundred countries, not all of them poor . Muhammad Yunus, a Bangladeshi professor of economics, speaks with the passion of a prophet and has fervently believed in his idea since the mid 1970s, ignoring skepticism and the angry and often violent reaction of his own chauvinistic Moslem society. I interviewed Muhammad Yunus in 1999 and traveled around Bangladesh to visit the beneficiaries of his idea……
Forrest Perry | Over the past decade, I have gone from being politically unconscious to leaning left. During that period of transition, I was cool. Put differently, I was something of a hipster. Not quintessentially so, but I certainly did, and to some extent still do, have some hipster credentials... more... 3 Comments
Time's Up! | Participants in Garden Community Day will plant flowers, build a children’s clubhouse and raise awareness of the garden’s proposed demolition. Time’s Up! teams up with gardeners, children and supporters to save the Children’s Magical Garden de Carmen Rubio, a community garden thriving on the Lower East Side for the past 20 years.

Hernán Mena Cifuentes | Desde Alaska hasta la Patagonia, se escucha el clamor de esos millones de seres humanos, exigiendo sus derechos, negadas durante siglos por la sociedad y sus gobiernos que, siguiendo leyes y costumbres impuestas por los mal llamados descubridores, siguen imponiendo el poder heredado de aquellos, despojándolos de las pocas tierras que les quedan, envenenando el hábitat, donde a duras penas sobreviven en medio del hambre, pobreza y enfermedades a los que han sido condenados.
RCG Webmaster | I had two goals when making this series. To make a permanent historical record of these dark times, AND to make these videos available as cheap and easily mass-produced Super VCD's for apathetic and uninformed people to be able to watch on their Televisions. It is my hope that activists might use them as tools to educate and to inspire the populace. more... 0 Comments
Bronterre O'Brien | The international anti-fascist magazine Searchlight last August published an article exposing Irish fascist, Gerry McGeough, and his magazine the Hibernian. On August 24, Indymedia New York, republished the article. Indymedia Ireland also published extracts. The articles have now provoked an irrational rant from McGeough. His attempted rebuttal give further proof of the original articles basis theme-the fascism of McGeough and of his magazine the Hibernian. more... 1 Comments

Allen Lang, National Student Organizer – WCW | Below is an open letter written by Allen Lang, National Student and Youth Organizer of World Can't Wait, in support of the recent protest at Columbia U. against the founder of the vigilante immigrant-hunting group the Minutemen. The students who took part in this protest are facing as-yet-undisclosed, but almost certainly severe, disciplinary action. We cannot allow students to face any disciplinary actions, including expulsion, for protesting the Minutemen.

Liam O'Donoghue | Is anyone really that shocked that the Congress put a pedophile in charge of the Missing and Exploited Children Caucus? Come on. When they wanted to “learn” about global warming they brought in Exxon’s scientists. When they were trying to figure out if smoking was addictive, they asked the Marlboro Men. Sure, I’m happy that the Republican Party is falling apart faster than discount plastic surgery, but I think we’ve got bigger problems to face, like nuclear weapons and spinach. Oh, apparently lettuce has also joined the axis of e.coli. Vegetables of Mass Destruction. Fuck. Is there anything we shouldn’t be scared of? According to this week’s edition of Shaking Uncontrollably, apparently not . . . more... 2 Comments
