Frankenfarms labels GMOs, prepares to March on Monsanto on May 25 - by indyradio.nu
Since the US government won't be issuing a GMO ban, we need to label them. So get yourself a label and STICK IT ON THE CAN. Here we have a message from Frankenfarms Laboratories, as we prepare for our finest moment. Monsanto is fighting globally to take control of our food supply. They are doing their best work in the US, where they already control the government. But they will not be unopposed. On May 25, we will take to the streets, and turn the tables.

Chokwe Lumumba's close race in Mississippi: Colorlines Editor Bob Wing on why it matters (audio/mpeg 2.7MB) - by KPFA Evening News, Ann Garrison, 05.18.2013
The Jackson, Mississippi press is reporting "crunch time" in a close mayor's race. Jackson’s population is majority Black and Democratic, so Tuesday’s Democratic primary run-off, between Black Democrat Chokwe Lumumba and Black Democrat Jonathan Lee, will effectively determine who the city’s next mayor will be. The Jackson Free Press reports, however, that donors to the Jonathan Lee campaign have also given $1.2 million to federal Republican campaigns since 2008. Second District Mississi...

Creative Destruction - by Rudolf Hickel
The exodus from the casino capitalism producing ever faster and ever deeper crises cannot succeed without a broad and powerful democratic base. Parliamentary democracy is urged to finally take up the struggle around the primacy of politics against the financial markets. Financial markets have nothing to do with the idylle of market competition. Dethroning the financial markets means reducing the speculation businesses. Speculation shopping represents 80% of the world economy while their busin...

Release of Two Books on the Same Day Recall the Aerial Massacre in Laos Fifty Years Ago - by N. Lombardi Jr.
The publication date of two different books, to be released on May 31 2013, is a coincidence that could turn out to be a fortuitous one for each, in that both deal with the same topic, the secret war in Laos that took place during the 1960's, and whose geographical focus is the same area of northern Laos. One is a novel, The Plain of Jars, while the other is a reprint of a 1972 anthology of bombing survivor stories, Voices from the Plain of Jars.

Lot Lizard (dir. Alexander Perlman, 2013) Screening at SF Sex Worker Film & Arts Festival - by Professor Kevin Heffernan
Inspired by his hitchhiking trip across the country, Perlman’s film looks closely at figures he first barely glimpsed in the shadows of the nighttime truck lots. Over the course of the film, we come to see them in their fully complex humanity and as participants in an equally complex and interlocking economy of which we all are a part. Lot Lizard will screen at the SF Sex Worker Film & Arts Festival, May 25, 10:30 PM at the Roxie

American Courtesans: Our Unsung Healers - by Natalie Mills, LMFT
