50 American Revolutions You’re Not Supposed To Know

Kristen Henderson of Antigone Rising says "50 American Revolutions You're Not Supposed to Know" is: "A reminder that complacency is (so) not sexy. It inspires one to stand up to the things that don't pass the tummy test. Those of us who choose the middle of the road will only get hit by a car."

DIY Guide to Santa Cruz

(AN INCOMPLETE LIST OF INDEPENDENT LOCAL PROJECTS)

Meaningful projects begin with people who are motivated to put into action their desires for the kind of world in which they want to live. The more we create our own projects that are apart from and in some cases pose a direct challenge to the dominant institutions, the more vital and meaningful our world(s) will be for us. Here is a short list of some of these kinds of projects in Santa Cruz.

Students, Workers and Community Unite to Support Bus Drivers

Students and Workers Take Protest to Sentinel's Door

Friday, Oct. 7, 2005 - Continuing the hard-fought struggle to support local bus drivers on strike, hundreds of students and workers from UC Santa Cruz, as well as many community members, held a brief rally at the base of the UCSC campus before embarking upon a highly visible and chant-filled march to the downtown Metro Center.

Once at the Metro Center, a rally and speak-out was held to discuss the bus drivers' struggle and the great deal of solidarity between various sectors of the community. After many complaints of the Santa Cruz Sentinel's poor coverage of the strike, the community marched over to the Sentinel's offices to greet the origins of their frusteration.

Friday's action, organized by the Student and Worker Coalition for Justice (SWCJ), has been the strongest show of support in the almost two week-old strike.

Early last week, students and workers descended on Mike Rotkin's office, leading to his denouncement of the Transit Board's decision that led to the strike. A few days later, a College Republican attempt at an anti-worker rally sank amidst overwhelming UTU solidarity.

Rotkin has called for an emergency Transit Board meeting Tuesday.

Guatemala: Government Declares National Emergency

guatemala.jpgRemember Hurricane Stan? It has hit all over Central American and reached it peak now, at Guatemala. The situation is truly desperate. Roads and highways have been washed out, bridges collapsed by overflowing rivers and scores of communities in the Western Highlands and the South (Pacific) Coast are cut off from the capital, with no communication, food or water. Others communities are completely gone, buried in mudslides. We're talking thousands of people, ALL over the coast, drowning. All the crops are destroyed, there is no food and El Salvador heavily depends on Guatemala for crop exports.
My article is going to consist of a compilation of emails from a man, Elmer who is experiencing this disaster first hand and who is down in Guatemala with a non-profit organization "World Neighbors". Please don't hesistate to help this people out and donate some money. Like I said, the situation is incredible. Unlike anything close to what we have seen with Hurricane Katrina.
