Miah Daley, The New York Megaphone | "Not all soy processing uses alkaline soaking solutions and not all soy is produced using aluminum equipment. Harsh alkaline soaking solutions are used mainly in the production of modern soy foods such as soy protein isolates, soy protein concentrates, soy supplements, soy protein shakes, textured soy protein (TSP), etc." Soy milk, tofu, and tempeh generally come from whole soybeans, not soy protein isolates, and therefore would not be at risk of aluminum contamination. Ingredient labels can tell you whether a food is made from whole soybeans or soy protein isolates. more... 0 Comments

Bennett Baumer | The longshoremen of Local 1588 in Bayonne, NJ knew their place – they worked and kept their mouths shut. When your past union president, an exboxer named John DiGilio, is found floating in the Hackensack River with two bullet holes in his head, you don’t ask too many questions. When the man who usurped the local from him threatens to settle disputes with a blowtorch to the crotch, you don’t go to the union office to voice concerns about benefits or safety issues. more... 3 Comments

Visual Resistance | On June 14th of 2006, the governor of Oaxaca, a state in southern Mexico, ordered the removal of striking teachers from the city plaza. The authorities, which ranged from Federal police, Municipal forces to firefighters, were unsuccessful in removing the teachers despite battling them with tear gas and live ammunition. The teachers, with the support of the surrounding community, erected barricades to prevent the police from regaining control of downtown Oaxaca City. Three days later the APPO (Asamblea Popular del Pueblo de Oaxaca) was convened which called upon people in Oaxaca to organize themselves into popular assemblies. People organized by street blocks, neighborhoods and municipalities to work cooperatively and govern themselves while demanding the resignation of the Ruiz administration.
