Starhawk's Reportback on the RNC

Starhawk | For five days, while the Republicans met in New York City they were met with massive resistance, with every form of nonviolent protest imaginable—from huge, permitted marches to small, breakaway marches, from confrontations at their parties to disruptions of their speeches, from street theater to blockades, from conferences to parties in the park, from parody to poetry to mass direct action. In spite of vicious campaigns of disinformation and propaganda directed against protestors, we were met with overwhelming support from ordinary people and even with sympathy from many of the cops and guards. In spite of massive pre-emptive arrests, we continued to fill the streets. We came as close as we’ve come yet to a mass, popular uprising. The connections and trust between various groups are stronger now than they were when we started. We overcame fear, and showed at least a glimpse of the world we want to create. more...  11 Comments

9/11 Plus 3: The Trail Goes Cold while the War Heats Up

Mark Dunlea | (from the Open Newswire): I drove to New York City for a friend's wedding the Saturday after September 11.

I stared in disbelief at the smoke rising from the ashes of the World Trade Center as I crossed the George Washington bridge.

Creeping fascism post 911

Signs | America, wake up. Hitler told the German people that they would have to "give up a few of your rights that we can fight the enemy." That's what Ashcroft said, about the misnamed PATRIOT ACT. Wake up, America. The American flag that proudly waves by MY front gate and is on the back window of MY car...doesn't seem to be the same American flag that the Republican Party is waving. more...  3 Comments
