Francisco Nemenzo | It is our patriotic duty to defend the area of freedom that people’s power had carved out in the struggle against the Marcos dictatorship. The best way to defend freedom is to exercise it. Responsible citizens cannot watch in silence as the minions of Mrs. Arroyo make a mockery of our democratic rights.
OAXACA SOLIDARITY ACTION | Please if you can send this out to everyone you know and hopefully come down!
Nancy Romer | Teachers in Oaxaca as teachers everywhere are civic and political activists who participate effectively in their communities; particularly in Oaxaca, their relationships to their communities are part of their everyday lives. The dynamic coalition of parents, teachers, and students is a model for all of us who want to see the schools be transformed into institutions that serve the needs of the people, especially the poor, instead of creating testing factories that sort people for the corporate economy. It also presents a model of how unions can engage in societal demands greater than the narrow confines of their contracts. more... 1 Comments

Time's Up! | BRAD WILL MEMORIAL AND AFTER PARTY
Malambo Angola | November 13 Monday at 6:00 pm
Armadillo (from the comments) | The system wanted/s us to believe that it is extreme tactics that make us radical, that score us cool points with our companeras/os. They wanted us to believe that it was the sound of breaking glass that shut down the WTO meeting in Seattle. This is patently not true. What shut down the WTO meeting was a coordinated and international effort of unions and NGO along with intense bravery of direct action tactics. Don't get me wrong, I love a good fire, I love the thought of going up against the police in the streets if we have the numbers to pull it off, but tactics do not a revolutionary strategy make. Revolutionary strategy requires an infrastructure to be built that can sustain and move foward. Tactics minus strategy is suicide. more... 3 Comments
