text USCPR Statement on Israeli Blacklist of Palestinian Rights Organizations by US Campaign for Palestinian Rights
WASHINGTON, DC, January 7, 2018 – Today, the US Campaign for Palestinian Rights (USCPR) learned through media reports that it, along with 19 other organizations, including several members of USCPR’s broad national coalition, have been added to a blacklist of organizations compiled by the Israeli Strategic Affairs Ministry. The stated purpose of the blacklist is to deny members of the organizations entry into Palestine/Israel due to their support for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) tac...

January 08, 2018 - This weekend, Israel made public a list of 20 organizations, including five U.S.-based organizations, whose leadership is barred from entering Israel due to their support for boycotts for Palestinian rights. Israel's blacklist is a sign of desperation and the latest recognition that the grassroots movement for Palestinian rights is growing in the U.S. and around the world. It is also an alarming reminder that Israel will resort to increasingly repressive means to quash diss...

image What is real anarchism? 480_realanarch2.jpg by Winter Oak
Anarchism is a philosophy which, over the years, has often been seriously misunderstood, thanks largely to the efforts of its enemies. But the situation seems worse than ever today, in that even those who call themselves anarchists sometimes lack a clear understanding of what it involves. Sometimes they accept the comic-book version of anarchism presented to us by the mainstream media and so help perpetuate that parody. Sometimes they undermine the whole sense of anarchism by trying to combin...

text Despised Peter Roskam of Wheaton picked for notorious tax bill negotiations by Lynda Carson
Wheaton is a racist town. Back in the mid 1970s, someone tried to get a permit to build an apartment building near Gary Avenue and Jewel Road, but it was opposed and blocked by many families in the area. This included my own family and grandfather who lived in his windmill house nearby at the time (now owned by my uncle Steve), because they were afraid that the apartment building would allow blacks to move into the neighborhood. I was ashamed of my family when that racist incident occurred an...

We refuse to let our voices go unheard in this process. Enbridge claims a near-impeccable pipeline safety record but has in fact been responsible for hundreds of thousands of gallons of crude oil spilled each year in the last three decades. We applaud Michele Naar-Obed for testifying in Duluth and highlighting the violations Enbridge has already wrought on the environment. We resist Enbridge’s attempts to buy its permits and oppose the unilateral force with which they are attempting to determ...

"The fact remains that US EPA scientists last November found all current uses of chlorpyrifos on food-related crops put children at risk due to unsafe levels in our food, air, water, and workplaces. Like the Trump Administration, the DPR continues to ignore the top government scientists in the land and continues to put our communities at risk. Nothing short of a total suspension of use will suffice to ensure the protection of the most vulnerable populations."...

The criminalization of radical movement media like linksunten reveals the threat our communications face under increasingly authoritarian conditions. Various Indymedias have seen this pattern in other forms since the network’s founding at the 1999 protests in Seattle against the World Trade Organization – raids, seizures of webservers, and attacks on Indymedia centres established to cover summit protests. The German case indicates the extent to which existing legal structures can be harnessed...
