Demonstration to Free the San Francisco 8: Protests against U.S. Torture and Racism
DSC03649.jpgBoston, MA, February 14th • Activists, students, teachers and church leaders from the groups Coast to Coast Solidarity-Boston and Queers Against Prison-Boston rallied this morning at South Station followed by a string of banner appearances and educational events across the city. This demonstration was part of a national call to action demanding lower bail and the release of the San Francisco 8. Eight former Black Panthers were arrested January 23rd, 2007 in California, New York and Florida on charges related to the 1971 killing of a San Francisco police officer.

Anarchist Ideals in an Ideal Community: Boston Anarchists Talk on Strategic Resistance
a_in_a180.jpgAnna Marie’s father was an Italian immigrant with anarchistic ideas but who in the 1920s didn’t identify himself openly as an anarchist. He raised his daughter in the rough and demanding environment of a working class family where hierarchical powers were not to be trusted and human relationships were critical for the survival of shrinking societies. Later in the 1940s and 50s, Anna Marie felt naturally attracted to the beat poets and dharma bums, but it was only when she read Emma Goldman that she connected with the “deep desires of anarchist ideals.”
