100 Years Ago African-Americans Marched Down 5th Avenue to Declare That Black Lives Matter (tags)
On the afternoon of Saturday, July 28, 1917, nearly 10,000 African-Americans marched down Fifth Avenue, in silence, to protest racial violence and white supremacy in the United States. New York City, and the nation, had never before witnessed such a remarkable scene. The “Silent Protest Parade,” as it came to be known, was the first mass African-American demonstration of its kind and marked a watershed moment in the history of the civil rights movement. As I have written in my book “Torchbearers of Democracy,” African-Americans during the World War I era challenged racism both abroad and at home. In taking to the streets to dramatize the brutal treatment of black people, the participants of the “Silent Protest Parade” indicted the United States as an unjust nation.

Retenes del fin de semana de Halloween / Halloween weekend checkpoints (26-27/oct/2012) (tags)
Como siempre cuando son días festivos, va a haber varios retenes en California. Una táctica interesante que utilizó la comunidad de Ontario fue aprovechar de la temporada de elecciones para intervenir con sus reclamos y buscar el favor de los candidatos. Si no lo hubieran hecho, la política de los migrantes no se habría discutido para nada. Cuidado, gente, y organícense.
As always on holiday weekends, there will be numerous checkpoints in California. An interesting tactic that the community of Ontario used was to take advantage of the election season to make their complaints and to appeal to the candidates. If they had not done so, immigration politics would simply not have been discussed. Be careful, people, and get organized.

Ahí les va la información (incompleta, por seguro) para los retenes de estos días para que nos pongamos listxs y sigamos todxs en la lucha!
Happy holidays comrades! We continue in the struggle and in support of all Occupy encampments worldwide. Caution--the revolution has begun, and therefore, the illegitimate authorities of the corporate state will use any pretext to detain our people--be they activists or not. We have more reason than ever to pay attention to these checkpoints, avoid them, and fight against them. Here is the information (incomplete, certainly) about the checkpoints in the coming days so we can get wise about them and continue in the struggle!
Queer-Oriented Obelisk Store Shut Down by Hellish Fire (tags)
Obelisk Bookstore, a major Queer-oriented business on University Avenue in Hillcrest, burned on Wednesday, July 6. Three other businesses in the building were burned out, as were 15 apartments on the second and third floors. Miraculously, none of the residents were injured because none of them were home at the time. Leo E. Laurence, J.D., associate editor of Zenger's Newsmagazine and a former volunteer firefighter in Tijuana, got photos of firefighters containing the blaze (they weren't able to save the Obelisk building but WERE miraculously able to keep the fire from spreading to the rest of the block), the true extent of the damage (visible only from the alley behind the building) and the condition of Obelisk's stock after the fire.
