Gay Nazis for Jesus Invade Witch City
We wish we were kidding, but no. White-supremacist gay folk musician Douglas Pearce is touring the East Coast with his band Death in June. They're stopping in Salem of all places. At the Old Town Hall no less, a venue managed by fundamentalist Christian "liberal arts" school Gordon College.

The show is scheduled for Thursday, September 19. More information about Pearce and Death in June can be found at http://libcom.org/library/death-in-june-a-nazi-band

UPDATE 9/14: CBS reports that the show has been canceled. Nice work everyone!

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.”

Take action w/ Amnesty Intl: Compassionate Release for Herman Wallace of the Angola 3!
In response to the tragic news that Herman Wallace is terminally ill with cancer, Amnesty International has launched a campaign calling for Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal to immediately release Herman on humanitarian grounds. "After decades of cruel conditions and a conviction that continues to be challenged by the courts, he should be released immediately to his family so that he can be cared for humanely during his last months," says Tessa Murphy, USA campaigner, about Herman Wallace.

griffith-book.jpgThis new book’s thoughtful analysis and chilling reflections on what author Shawn Griffith experienced while incarcerated is a remarkable illustration of why the US public must listen to the voices of current and former prisoners who have stories that only they can tell.

9/11, the Marathon Bombing, and the Security-Industrial Complex
In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings and subsequent manhunt and shootout, speculation has been rife about the attack being a "false flag operation", that is, a terrorist attack arranged by government agents for the purpose of scapegoating a particular group or nation, an example being the Reichstag fire. It's certainly not impossible. A government willing to commit similar atrocities on a daily basis by means of drone attacks in Pakistan is hardly above suspicion just because this attack occurred on US soil.

The conspiracy theorists are missing a more important point, however. Even if Tamerlan Tsarnaev wasn't secretly working for the CIA, the Marathon attack did a huge favor for the US security-industrial complex.
