The Bethlehem Bloggers website is dedicated to bringing first hand insight into life and politics inside Israeli-occupied Bethlehem. The site is managed by a diverse group of activists and professionals living and working in the area. An introductory statement posted to the website explains:

"We are Palestinians and internationals who are living in the Bethlehem region, and who want to tell the world what it is like to be living in occupied territory, under an economic siege, encircled by a wall and military checkpoints: what it is like to live in a Palestinian Ghetto."

Interview :: Alternative Media : Civil & Human Rights : Police State

FRSC: Interview with Ron Anicich of Bad Cop, No Donut!

Skidmark Bob interviews Ron Anicich of Bad Cop, No Donut! before a media attack. Toronto Police Chief Julian Fantino says Bad Cop, No Donut! promotes hatred of the police [see: Get 'hate mongering' off air: Fantino]. Ron talks about the show and support from CKLN. It will be interesting to see how this develops.

A commenter writes: Another critic who needs our support and solidarity! Put him on the list with Ward Churchill and Lynne Stewart, with Free Radio and WAMM. Seems like critics are getting silenced quick and fast in the third Bush administration.

Bad Cop No Donut, for those who aren't aware, is an excellent weekly digest of nationwide accounts of Police Brutality, from lawsuit settlements and legal decisions, to off duty officer conduct and corruption, to taser use, deadly force, and stories yet to be told.
Anicich gathers all the PIC [Prison Industrial Complex] news he can find and puts together a weekly compilation.

The Project has been Digitized

The Project The purpose of The Project, a student organized newspaper from UC Santa Cruz, is to document and inspire strategic radical actions that are relevant to local, regional, and global socioeconomic justice. We believe independent media plays a crucial role in facilitating dialogue, organizing mass mobilizations, and encouraging daily acts of resistance.

The February 2005 edition of The Project can be found at various locations on and off campus, such as cafes, mailrooms and libraries, and is now available online at Santa Cruz Indymedia.

Review :: Alternative Media

Radical Publishing

Call for Submissions (Fiction)

AGITATIONAL PROBABALLISTICS is soliciting short fiction putting unusual spin on current events and political affairs in the genres of science fiction, horror, crime, eclectic short fiction and political suspense thrillers. We especially invite material written from a socialist, anarchist or deep ecological perspective, but we support freedom of thought and will consider submissions from all points of view subject to the following exclusion. No manuscripts will be considered which advocate illegal activity or express racism, sexism, homophobia, gender oppression, body image oppression, age oppression or the glorification of fascist, totalitarian communist or similar oppressive ideologies except as judged to evidence countervailing social redeeming and literary values which, in the sole opinions of the editors, outweigh any violation of the exclusion. That being said, AGIT POL welcomes short fiction which dares to challenge the conventional boundaries of what is customary deemed socially acceptable, and in particular encourages short fiction which integrates evolved social awareness with such shockingly out of the ordinary themes as alternative sexual expression, alternative family arrangements and reproductive strategies, stem cell research, cloning and other cutting edge social issues. In cases where our editorial board is unable to determine with a sufficient plurality that a borderline submission meets our criteria, an author may be invited to submit a defense of their work in writing, authored by either themselves or by any critic, professional or amateur. For more information please email the editorial board with the email address and promotion code posted on this website. Below is a sample from our Eclectic Category.
