Forget the Democrats, Build a Mass Movement!

build a workers movement | The leadership of the main antiwar groups like UFPJ chose to channel growing discontent against the war into the dead-end of "lesser evil" politics under the guise of "beating Bush." Thus they built one large demonstration during the Republican convention, replacing opposition to the war with opposition to "the Bush agenda." Likewise they chose to ignore the opportunity of bringing the anti-war movement closer to the labor movement when they did nothing to build the Million Worker March. more...  12 Comments

City tries to close down S. Bronx Community Center; Court Hearing Tomorrow

imcista | There will be a rally in support of Casa del Sol community center 9 a.m. Thursday in front of the Bronx County Courthouse at 161st and Grand Concourse. The occupants of Casa del Sol, located at 136th and Cypress in the South Bronx, will be in court to fight the city’s bid to eject them. The city states that it wants to convert an “abandoned†building into housing, although the building is already in use. Supporters of Casa del Sol say they will engage in non-violent civil disobedience if the court rules against them. Projects at Casa Del Sol currently include a Silkscreen Shop, Community Garden, an After School Program, the Adverse Possession Art Gallery and weekly concerts. Casa Del Sol also hosts an Annual Street Fair and Halloween Party, and houses the offices of the Cherry Tree Association and the Mutual Aid Project, which produces the New York City Free Events Calendar. The showdown over the future of Casa del Sol comes at a time when the city is also on the verge of bulldozing four community gardens in Melrose, another South Bronx neighborhood experiencing increased gentrification. more...  11 Comments
