From the Past Can you Hear These Chimes Ringing? (tags)
In our short lives, your short experiences of being alive, as what you could recall experience- with the events that culminate who you are in life- are you really ready for the things that are about to happen? The quaking earth below you shakes, and you know this. The conception of the Windchime Project was just a foreshadow of what was going to happen, and the barriers of your world are going to crumble heavily down upon you. From the day your born, into this world of economy, of monetary belief systems, of this destructive civilization, you are conditioned. But obviously I think you would know that. Could there be a critique of anarchists who find themselves trying to struggle with the economy like everyone else, so situated on just getting a job and not casting aside the actual chains that have entombed us to a mere pile of flesh and bone? Or mostly the fact of arriving food issues and the fact that gardening permaculture and sustainable alternatives aren't being concentrated on? And lastly moving beyond the typical models of food not bombs, free markets, identity propaganda and image fashion of bandannas? or mostly TAKING THIS SERIOUSLY. and mostly, this movement, this life of ours, this idea of challenging the powers that smash our ribs on these iron gears... needs maturity, needs to understand that pop culture, subculture needs to die a horrible death. Needs to be strung upon a banner, it's entrails hanging so as not to make the same mistakes, if not to be so descriptive. When our friends die, when our hearts cry, when our fists are smashed my batons or we have been shot by the pigs and thier unrelenting assualt. ask yourself, how serious you really are. -A Most Concerned Wild One
Report Back from Healthcare Town Hall Meeting with Diane Watson (tags)
The Town Hall Meeting with Diane Watson at the Ward African Methodist Episcopal Church in South Central last Thursday night was actually very organized and productive.

STERN'S GANG SEIZES YHW UNION HALL IN OAKLAND (tags)
This mob, thirty, maybe forty strong, mostly very nicely dressed white men for this side of struggling Oakland, was led by a young female lawyer – there were a couple of nasty ex-cops in tow, just in case. They used bolt-cutters to get through the parking-lot gates in back; they smashed their way through a second floor window, then pushed their way to the front, where they opened the doors, let in the rest of the mob in and then ended the occupation – evicting the (former) members of United Healthcare Workers-West (UHW) from their union hall, their house. “Who’s House, Our House!” No more.
KPFK is biased, still, while pretending to be "fair" (tags)

The 5:32 AM Train to Washington, D.C. (tags)
A lot has changed since 9/11, mostly all for the worse. When I took the commuter train from Baltimore to Washington, D.C., on the morning of Aug. 7, 2007, “Big Brother” knew I was on it, since an ID is needed to buy a ticket. When I got to D.C., “Big Brother’s’” cameras watched me get on and off the Metrorail. When I tried to videotape a demonstration at the DOE, a security guard threatened to confiscate my camcorder and to put me “in handcuffs!”

A Plea to Moms on Mother's Day (tags)
The time and effort required for a new-born child is immense and truly only known by moms. Constant care and nurturing of a completely helpless baby is no easy task and one that is mostly forgotten and unknown, except on this one day a year when we give thanks to our moms. A mother's care is a special gift that is taken for granted most of the time. And, sadly, that is the way man is concerning Mother Earth. We have been taking and taking from her with barely any regard.

AFFIRMATIVE ACTION: Racial Preference? (tags)
Ask a fish what water is and you'll get no answer. Even if fish were capable of speech, they would likely have no explanation for the element they swim in every minute of every day of their lives. Water simply is. Fish take it for granted. So too with this thing we hear so much about, "racial preference."
