The Anarchist Case against the Domain Awareness Center - by FireWorks
"Repression is not simply something that is dished out only against revolutionaries or activists. From ICE deportations, raids on public housing in West Oakland, a massive network of informants in Muslim communities, to gang injunctions that help facilitate gentrification, repression by the State is as much a means of counter-insurgency as it is a way to uphold the white supremacist nature of modern American capitalism. It is a project that attempts to keep resistance from brewing to begin wi...

Housing is a human right, and poor people have the right to survive no matter how hard the Democrats and Republicans try to criminalize poverty.

Living Apart Together: Another Option - by Joan Annsfire
LGBT marriage didn't change my life at all. My spouse and I still live separately after 15 years. It complicates some things but it works for us. Traditional marriage is not the answer for everyone.

Squat Defended in Oakland from REO Homes - by FireWorks
Dozens of people gathered throughout the day on Tuesday, November 11th, in front of what seemed to be a derelict house at 625 23rd St. in Oakland. The family living at 625 is the last black family on the block, in a hotly contested area right between rapidly gentrifying KONO and Uptown, and also sitting on the edge of west Oakland. REO Homes LLC is notable for being a driving force for this gentrification.

Lawmakers bludgeon the food stamp program - by Lynda Carson
President Barack Obama and the Democrat's major focus on inequality during the recent State of the Union address is short lived, and laughable. Especially when considering that within a week of the address the Democrats happily joined the Republicans in passing the huge farm bill that bludgeons the food stamp program, while at the same time locking in massive subsidies for wealthy corporate farmers in perpetuity!
