Memorial Planned for Local Activist Eric Weinberger
winkeric.JPGBoston, Mass--Eric Weinberger, a lifelong activist and organizer in the civil rights, anti–nuclear, and anti–war movements, died on December 15, 2006. Eric was best known in Boston for his work with Food Not Bombs, an organization which provides free food to the hungry year–round in public parks.

Eric will be remembered by many people for many things, but throughout it all he carried himself with dignity and an extreme humbleness. He devoted his entire life to working for justice, easing the hardships of others, and serving as a mentor and inspiration to many younger activists.

"We Are Jews Who Stand for Humanity!"
DSC00179.jpgBoston, Mass. – Four weeks after their first demonstration against The Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC), Combined Jewish Philanthropies (CJP), American Jewish Committee (AJC) and the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) who claim that the Jews of Boston are united in their support of Israel, 30 people gathered once again in front of 126 High Street to speak out: “Not in our name”, or as some Israeli Refusers have been known to chant: “Not with our bodies”.

Lessons from Katrina: One Year Later
DSC09846.jpg“The source of the flood is not the water; it's gentrification,” said Keric Johnson from the Builders Guild at a rally yesterday in Roxbury organized by the Rosa Parks Human Rights Day Committee to remember the ongoing suffering of the people of New Orleans from Katrina and its aftermath. “The land belongs to the people.

Poverty in Boston, What Poverty?
new_orleans.jpgThat’s exactly what an editor for the business section at the Boston Globe said during class at Harvard when I proposed writing a story about the correlation between the rise in crime and poverty in our city. I was dumbfounded and almost answered, “All you have to do is look outside your window,” as I remembered the men standing day after day on the street corners looking for work at my Somerville neighborhood. Then again, I didn’t know where the editor lived and the suburbs isn’t exactly a Boston hub for the homeless. The story idea was shut down, and we both moved on with our privileged lives.
