MBTA Hikes Averted, But Taxes Raised in New State Budget
Reposted from http://cradleoflibertynews.org

Bostonians dependent on public transit will be spared a second MBTA fare hike, just one year after a 23% fare increase. On Wednesday, July 24, the Massachusetts State Legislature approved a new budget, including safeguards, promoted by rider and worker groups, for public transit users.

After public protests against last year’s MBTA fare hikes, a variety of community organizations and unions have pressured politicians to protect the millions of riders who rely on public transportation. As Steve Annear reports in Boston Magazine, “(a)ccording to the language in the latest transportation reform proposal on Beacon Hill, (future fare) hikes… would be limited to just 5 percent—if needed—and could only come up every two years as a means of bringing in new revenue to pay off the T’s lingering debt problems.” This is great news for riders, most of whom are working class, suffer as their wages lag behind inflation, and often need public transit to get to work.

Opening the Box: Sarah Shourd on Herman Wallace, California Hunger Strikers and the Horror of Solitary Confinement
Herman Wallace has been transferred out of solitary confinement, as Louisiana’s Hunt prison reduced his classification from maximum to medium security. Herman is now staying at the prison hospital in a 10-bunk dorm, with access to a day room, and does not have to wear leg irons anymore. While celebrating the more human conditions, Herman and the International Coalition to Free the Angola 3 emphasize that the transfer from solitary is not enough. They are asking folks to continue supporting Amnesty International’s call for humane release. The Angola 3’s Robert H. King, himself released in 2001 after 29 years in solitary confinement, says, “The wind is at our back and with your continued help our objective will be realized - freedom is in sight.”
