350 Jews March from Coolidge Corner to Protest Racist Police Violence on First Night of Chanukah
tesssheflan.jpgBrookline, MA — Last night, over 350 Boston-area Jews gathered to observe the first night of Chanukah in Coolidge Corner by protesting racist police violence. They lit menorahs as a symbolic dedication to the fight to end systemic police violence and racial profiling, and to remember the lives of black people across the country who have been killed by police. Traffic was stopped in Coolidge corner for 30 minutes as hundreds of protesters gathered on the sidewalks and in the streets for public prayer and song, led by Jews of color, followed by a youth speak-out held on the steps of Kehillath Israel. They also fundraised for Black Lives Matter Boston.

Terrorism, COINTELPRO, and the Black Panther Party --An interview with law professor Angela A. Allen-Bell
In her new law journal article, “Activism Unshackled & Justice Unchained,” law professor Angela A. Allen-Bell concludes that the US government’s multi-faceted response to the BPP, primarily within the framework of the FBI’s infamous COINTELPRO, was indeed the very definition of terrorism. Bell writes that “the magnitude of the unwarranted harm done to the BPP has not yet been explored in an appropriate fashion. Much like a fugitive, it has eluded justice.” As a result, “the FBI's full-scale assault on the social movements of the 1960s and 1970s remains an open wound for the nation itself. This is more than a national tragedy; this is a human wrong."

Ferguson. Over one week in.
Reposted from Anti-State STL

What began as a protest movement after 10 days of sustained defiance, has taken a couple shaky steps towards revolt. The situation here is still fluid and ripe with potential. Locally, people are surprised that similar unrest hasn’t sparked off in other cities. If it were to spread, the scope here would likely widen. It’s difficult to get a sense of how people outside the metro area interpret what’s happening here. What follows are some observations from St Louis residents and participants in the struggle who might give a clearer picture of this strange new reality.
