The Long March from Cinco de Mayo to Cinco de Pentagon
17PROTEST_MEXICO,0.jpgThose of us old enough to remember might recall those halcyon days when celebrating Cinco de Mayo meant many things: closing off a street in what was then known as a “barrio”, listening to sometimes inspired and sometimes less-than-inspired music of long-sideburned Santana wannabees from the local garage bands and eating food infused with the love of the local.

May Day: Boston for Workers Rights Unite!
mayday.jpgBoston, Mass.--About 100 Anarchists, Socialists, Union Orgainzers, Immigrant Rights Workers and Anti-War activists gathered in Boston to celebrate and / or protest the issues of the day. It was hard to tell which was more prominent. During the march through the streets, the Second Line Social Aid and Pleasure Society Brass Band, certainly gave the event a celebratory feel, but at the rally at Boston Common, there were somber calls for human rights for immigrants, and better working conditions for all – citizens and immigrants alike.

Corporatization and Human Rights Violation in India: Justice Delayed for Dr. Binayak Sen
binayak_3.jpg
The unethical detention of Dr. Binayak Sen is one of the many glaring examples of state repression. On May 14th 2008, it will be one year since Dr. Sen was arrested under various sections of the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act, the Chhattisgarh Special Public Security Act and the Crimes Against the State Chapter of the Indian Penal Code. Dr. Sen has spent the last twenty-five years working--leaving conventional life behind--among the tribal people of Chhattisgarh, setting up the worker’s hospital in Dalli-Rajhara, Chhattisgarh. He relentlessly documented incidents of fake police encounters, inhuman conditions in the prison, the lack of the very basic health care among the tribal.
