Out, the Making of a Revolutionary:
Convicted of the 1983 US Capitol Bombing, and 'conspiring to influence, change, and protest policies and practices of the United States government through violent and illegal means", Laura Whitehorn, an out lesbian and one of six defendants in the Resistance Conspiracy Case, spent 14 years in prison. OUT is the story of her life and times - five tumultuous decades of struggle for freedom and justice. Planting a bomb in the US Capitol Building was the culmination of a lifetime of radical protest for Whitehorn, and 14 years in federal penitentiary have only solidified her stance as a committed American revolutionary.

From Attica to Abu Ghraib:

An Organizing Conference on Human Rights, Torture, and
Resistance

sponsored by the International Human Rights Initiative

Friday, April 22, 6 - 9 p.m.: Opening Event featuring
keynote speaker Cynthia McKinney.

St. Joseph the Worker Church 1640 Addison St.,
Berkeley, California

Saturday, April 23, 8:30 a.m. - 9 p.m: Working
Conference.

U.C. Berkeley, Dwinelle Hall

Torture, illegal detention and other human rights
abuses have always been weapons used by the United
States government to crush dissent and social justice
movements. Today, the criminalization of people of
color in the US, mass illegal detentions and
deportations of Arabs, Muslims and immigrants, torture
in Guantanamo, Abu Ghraib and in US prisons are
evidence of a terrifying escalation in US repression
both at home and abroad.

What can we do? Our strength lies in building on the
experiences of those who resist: here in the US, in
Latin America, Palestine, the Philippines, the
Caribbean, and in countless communities throughout the
world. The International Human Rights Initiative was
conceived by a strong diverse coalition, including US
political prisoners, to help unite the emerging global
resistance movement.
