Overflow Crowd Turns Out for Beaver St. Antiwar Lecture

Hannah Vahl | An overflowing crowd gathered at the 16 Beaver St. cultural space Wednesday night to listen to a pair of radical scholars discuss the future of the U.S. occupation of Iraq. The length of the question-and-answer session, which evolved into a way for audience members to express their own frustrations and concerns with the situation in Iraq and American leadership and the need to create grassroots opposition, made the event more than a lecture.

Renowned Mexican Human Rights lawyer Joins Brad Will Case

Brad Will Family (posted by friends in NYC) | The Will family is pleased to have the renowned Mexican human rights lawyer, Miguel Angel de Los Santos Cruz, join the cause for justice in the case of Bradley Roland Will's death.

Brad, a New York based photojournalist and activist, was shot and killed in Oaxaca, Mexico last October 27th while videotaping the turmoil in the Mexican State. Although two government-affiliated suspects were initially held for the murder, they were released by Oaxacan state authorities in late November on claims of insufficient evidence. A number of human rights groups have questioned the legitimacy of the state investigation and are calling for the case to be moved to the federal level.

Karl Kemp & Associates (antique dealer) sues homeless people for being in front of his store.

Anonymous | This is becuase Karl Kemp has decided that the homeless are "blocking WINDOW DISPLAYS" and "Alienating customers" according to an AP wire story on the lawsuit. While he can never collect the $1M even if he wins in court, the stay aways would set a brutal legal precedent that would spread like wildfire as other businesses "follow suit" so to speak. more...  5 Comments

How Capitalism Failed African Americans

Alan Woods | Originally published in the book Marxism and the USA, published by and available from Wellred.
The Second American Revolution [The U.S. Civil War] was a tremendous step forward, but it never realized its promise to Black Americans. The real winners in the Civil War were the Northern capitalists who opened up new markets and obtained a huge new supply of dirt-cheap labor.

Despite a number of advances achieved through the struggles of black people in the 1960s, the position of black Americans remains one of clear disadvantage. Michael Moore points out that in the U.S.A. today: more...  0 Comments
