Jena Six Activist Convicted
Civil rights activist Catrina Wallace, who received national attention for her role in organizing protests around the Jena Six case, was convicted today of three counts of distribution of a controlled substance. Wallace, who is 30, became an activist after her brother, Robert Bailey, was arrested and charged with attempted murder for a school fight. Bailey and five others later became known as the Jena Six. Their case eventually brought 50,000 people on a march through the town of Jena, and as a result of the public pressure the six young men were eventually freed. The six young men are all now in college or - in the case of the youngest - on their way. (image/png + 7 comments)

The FBI’s War On Democracy  --Claude Marks discusses the new film COINTELPRO 101
The high point of struggle represented by the loosely used term “the sixties” and the violent repression against it, contains essential lessons for every young person seeking a more just society. More generally, people should not be misled by the myth of democracy, the idea that the system can be made to work for “us” or that those in power will somehow reach a moral epiphany and give up anything of consequence without a fight.

text A Terrible Thunder: The Story of the New Orleans Sniper Dylan rail 2010-08-07 10:09 PM
The story of Mark Essex should be as familiar as Robin Hood to the people of New Orleans, and in some wards at least, his story has reached a similarly legendary, hero-of-the-poor status since his 1973 death at the hands of the New Orleans Police. As anarchist professor John Clark recently relayed to me, "The 1960s actually happened in the 1970s in New Orleans," and this book illustrates his point exactly. (text/plain + 2 comments)

text Permitting Culture Crimes Repost from: Ashley Morris 2011-03-07 7:56 PM
We stayed at Mimi's maybe 40 minutes and had a couple beers then headed home. I had just walked in my door, didn't even have it closed yet, when I heard loud chanting coming from Port and Chartres. "Let them go. Let them go. Let them go." I ran back out the door and ran into a man who had been with Eris who told me that the cops had tried to blockade them at Esplanade, then Franklin, now here at Port. When I walked the half block to the intersection I saw cop cars everywhere, cops with a kid face down on the ground and all had their batons out and their attitudes in evidence. The police were very clearly spoiling for a fight. (text/html + 1 comment)
