David McReynolds, Peace Activist, to run as Green for US Senate

Mark Dunlea | Long time peace activist David McReynold announced his candidacy today for US Senate on the Green Party line. "The overwhelming issue confronting the United States is the militarization of this country," stated McReynolds. "One result of this militarization is that when the nation faces a genuine crisis, as it did on September 11, 2001, the only response that comes to mind is military action - in that case the invasion of Afghanistan. Because of this military mind-set, George Walker Bush was able to gain broad support when he launched an aggressive war against Iraq. Currently tens of billions of dollars of national treasure are being drained in Iraq, the lives of our own troops, and the lives of many Iraqis, are being wasted as a result of this criminal adventure. more...  4 Comments

Cómo Sobrevivir el Calor Mortal en las Manifestaciones Politicas de Este Verano

kirsten anderberg | Las protestas políticas en el medio del verano, tales como las próximas protestas contra la Convención Nacional Republicana (RNC) de este agosto en NYC, mezclan calor y adrenalina en lo que puede ser una combinación mortal. En las protestas es necesario tomar medidas diferentes a las de una situación normal de calor, incluyendo la necesidad de ropa protectora, como manga larga, pantalones, y zapatos, cuando un@ normalmente eliminaría capas de ropa. Y la necesidad de evitar las cremas solares a base de aceite que podrían atrapar el spray pimienta sobre la piel. Luego están los típicos problemas que vigilar, por ejemplo la deshidratación, el cansancio y las lipotimias por calor y las quemaduras solares. La gente se olvida de que estando parado en el asfalto caliente rodeado por montones de cuerpos calientes durante horas se aumenta el calor del verano. Asimismo, a menudo se andan muchas millas en la ruta de la protesta, con todo poc@s se preparan para las manis como harían para las marchas por el monte del verano. La preparación para el calor, con un ambiente de la protesta en mente, aliviará presión a l@s médicos de la calle que a menudo son abrumados por los casos derivados del calor, y te dará más energía, y menos malestar, durante protestas en verano. more...  0 Comments

Shackleton is Back in Town

Michael Christian | One hundred years ago Ernest Shackleton got married to Emily Dorman and then set out to impress her by trying to be the first man to cross the Antarctic Continent. In the process he got stuck in Antarctica with 27 men. His claim to fame is that after a two year life-and-death struggle he brought all his men home safely. What we need today are explorers who are willing to risk everything for love instead of warriors who risk everything for a corporate or national agenda. We need to bring back the age of personal fortitude to revive ourselves from the corporate mindlessness that has engulfed our nation. more...  7 Comments

New York's Alright: One Update on the RNC Protests

NYC Anarchist Grapevine | (from the Open Newswire): Scene report of the RNC Protests by local NYC anarchists.

The RNC protests are going to be huge! Hundreds of thousands will flood the streets: Democrats toeing the party line, liberals of all stripes, and communists of all sects. Even “the UNIONS are coming”! The hip hop kids are coming, the college kids are coming, the Greens are coming, Al Sharpton’s coming, the NGOs, Starhwak, the libertarians and tons of assorted wing-nuts will make an appearance. And don’t forget the millions of New Yorkers who hate Bush or are simply pissed-off because they have to be inconvenienced by closed-off streets, delayed subway trains, or police barricades- they’ll be there too. And more power to them, right?
