Indypendent July 1: Hackers On Planet Earth Conference Set to Hit NYC

Andy Harris | Hackers are usually painted as a menace to society, but they play a big role in publicizing the private world of technology. When a group of hackers downloaded Diebold’s election software and exposed security holes in the company’s electronic voting machines, they sparked a national controversy. more...  0 Comments

Republicans and Sex Workers at the RNC: Good Old-Fashioned Pleasure (GOP)

kirsten anderberg | This August (2004), New York City will host the Republican National Convention (RNC). And the sex industry says it is gearing up for those “family value” Republicans to hit town with their fat wallets. During the FTAA protests in Miami in 2003, a judge said he watched police break laws all around him, and that the only reason he, himself, was not assaulted or arrested was that the police recognized him as a judge. And knowing full well that police officers and politicians are no strangers to the sex industry, as paying customers, I wonder how that plays out in real life during protests and police riots. Would a cop in NYC, for instance, jeopardize his working relationship with his favorite sex worker, by being violent on that person if they met on the front lines during the RNC protests this summer? Would a sex worker return to their previous working relationship with a cop in private, after experiencing assaults from him during political protests in public? Adversely, would police target sex workers they see at protests, later, on the streets, after the RNC, under the radar, when things return to “normal?” Unlike many of the protesters who come in from elsewhere and leave after the protests, people who work on NYC’s streets have to deal with the NYC police day in and out, and thus their participation in the week’s protest events during the RNC would have different considerations, I would think, than the out of town activist contingency. more...  0 Comments

DEFEND NEW YORK From the RNC: We Choose the World (Indypendent, July 1)

Jed Brandt (Indypendent) | The Republican Party couldn’t have picked a worse place to launch Bush’s re-coronation. With the army neck deep in Baghdad, it seems they have a uniquely hard time knowing where they’re not wanted. From his Pharisee fundamentalism to that frat boy smirk, it’s like Bush was created in a lab just to make a New Yorker’s skin crawl. Maybe it takes an enemy the size of Bush to bring this city together. Out of sight of the TV cameras and spin doctors, that’s exactly what’s happening. more...  25 Comments
