Invisible People, Bold Visions: New York Rally for Immigrants' Rights

Christina Z | When I first walked out of the subway in front of city hall, I was baffled by the sheer numbers and energy of the people, waving flags of all colors, chanting, “Los pueblos, unidos, jamas sera vencidos (The people united will never be defeated.) As I stare out the sea of people of all races and cultures, I wonder fearfully, “What if they all just disappeared?” more...  3 Comments

Help Free Marty Tankleff!

SM (and text from | On March 17, 2006, his motion for a retrial was denied by a Suffolk County criminal justice system notorious for
law enforcement and prosecutorial misconduct. Though a parade of credible witnesses, including the gunman's son,
testified on Marty's behalf; though there was no physical evidence tying him to the crime; though there is DNA evidence that the court refuses to test; and though articles in the New York Times and Newsday supported the call for a new trial, Marty remains a victim of Suffolk County injustice. He needs your help.

No yellow ribbons from this ex-marine

populist | We can and should support troops-to-be, but do so before they become troops. We should post a warning sign, and disclaimer, in all recruiting stations. Prospective enlistees should be told that their new employer will not be the Department of Defense, but the Department of War; and that their service will not be in the defense of freedom and democracy, but in the building of an empire for America's powerful elite. And that their countrymen, for all the yellow ribbons and pseudo-patriotic talk, will ultimately blame them for the added terrorism they instigate with their wars. Just like there is truth in lending, we should demand truth in recruitment. more...  0 Comments

Immigration: A Nation of Colonists – and Race Laws

Juan Santos | Two choices were before them. These were the terms of the debate: take the whole nation and lock the people on reservations, or take as much land – with as few Mexicans – as possible. Thus the border was established through a race war, through brute and overtly racist violence. The border is an Apartheid Wall. So it stands today. more...  8 Comments
