This should pave the way for long-overdue legislation to address New York City’s housing crisis that tenants’ groups have been working on for years. more...  0 Comments

Support Parole for Political Prisoner Seth Hayes

Robert Seth Hayes Support Committee | Robert “Seth” Hayes is a U.S. political prisoner and former member of the Black Panther Party who has been imprisoned in New York state for more than three decades.

NYC Election Night Party Preview: Activists Ready to Celebrate, Then Agitate

John Tarleton | Long before Bush-bashing became commonplace, radicals were speaking out from Day One and protesting against the policies of the most reactionary administration in modern U.S. history. Now, after eight long years, America stands on the verge of electing a charismatic, highly intelligent, moderate-to-liberal African-American president. So, who doesn’t want to party even if there are many reasons to be wary of Obama’s agenda and the people who are backing him?
Here’s a sampling of a few of the parties going on around town Tuesday night. more...  0 Comments

U.S. Elections - Demanding Participation

Michael Fox | Democracy is not something that happens once every four years when you go vote for President, Senator, governor or congressman. It should be an every day act. We can no longer leave important local, regional or national decisions in the hands of our elected representatives alone. hey should be held accountable, not to their campaign contributors, but to the citizens who they are supposed to represent. So when we go vote tomorrow, we should not only consider which of the candidates is going to best represent us, but which candidate will be willing to fulfill this commitment and open up the greatest amount of dialogue with the voters. Which candidate will allow him/herself to be held accountable? Which candidate will pass power to the American people?

Unaccountable politicians and beltway lobbyists got us in to this mess. Only the American people can get us out. more...  0 Comments
