A Warning To The Economic And Political Elites: Listen Now (tags)
.... this is the beginning of an American revolt. Before considering occupation, we tried other avenues: elections, lobbying, petitioning, email campaigns, telephone campaigns, marches, rallies -- but they were ineffective.....

EARTH FIRST ORGANIZERS' CONFERENCE and WINTER RENDEZVOUS (tags)
The Earth First! Organizers’ Conference (OC) and Winter Rendezvous (Rondy) will be held in the beautiful mountains of Santa Barbara. Traditionally, this conference is a time for members of radical environmental campaigns to come together to discuss ideas and strategies, ideally creating a stronger, more unified front. We expect this year’s gathering to help connect and strengthen existing campaigns within the movement, as well as look at how current social and political trends impact the biosphere in increasingly devastating ways. We hope the conference will inform and inspire new comrades to join the struggle in defense of the Earth—along with eating good food and doing a bunch of hootin’ and hollerin’!

Who Should Hold the Power? (tags)
The Supreme Court decision on September 18th reversing spending limit legislation was a great step forward for corporations. They have been restricted from investing from their general funds in political campaigns. This means they now can contribute hundreds of millions per company to whichever candidate, party or campaign they wish. They once bore the shackles damning them to relatively level footing with normal citizens, but no more.

A People's History of UC Weapons Lab Management (tags)
Over the past several decades students and faculty of the University of California, often in tandem with nuclear disarmament NGOs in California and New Mexico, have conducted a series of campaigns to end the UC's involvement in nuclear weapons research, design, testing, and production at the Los Alamos and Lawrence Livermore laboratories.
