Anti-War Protests in Boston and DC: 9/24 Remembered
17_G.jpgOn Saturday, September 24th, 2005, dozens of local activists gathered at the Park Street corner of Boston Common to show their solidarity with protesters in Washington, DC. Meanwhile in DC, September 24-26 was filled with scheduled actions and events on national resistance against the war in Iraq and other issues related to US foreign policy.

Sponsored by The Committee for Peace and Human Rights, a local group affiliated with United for Justice and Peace that has been hosting Saturday Vigils for the Iraqi People for 6 years, the event in Boston featured guest speakers on a variety of topics including: the Iraq War & Occupation, Women's Rights, BU’s proposed Bio-terror lab, Venezuela, SHARC, and Voting and Elections, among others. Several individuals and organizations collected signatures on petitions about local issues, including Affordable Health Care in the State of Massachusetts, and many people sported buttons, badges and signs showing their dissatisfaction with the Iraqi War and the current warmongering Bush administration.

Report and photos of solo AIPAC Protest @ BU
DSC00277.JPGInspired by and in solidarity with the demonstration against American Israeli Political Action Committee in DC I turned out in the rain to demonstrate against an AIPAC event at Boston University on Sept 26.

Their were 4 Israeli politicians speaking about how great their "democracy" was and I, having spent two summers in occupied refugee camps and 3 weeks in an Israeli jail system full of Palestinian political prisoners on hunger strike, thought I should turn out to keep them honest.

Community-labor coalition kicks off campaign for more power in elections
Over two-dozen local community and labor organizations have kicked off a grassroots effort to reinvigorate democracy in the Bay State by giving citizens more choices and a stronger voice at the polls. Rallying behind the slogan, “Vote Your Values,” the groups are conducting an initiative drive to repeal the state’s ban on cross-endorsement voting.

Cross endorsement gives voters an opportunity to express support for the platform or values of a minor or third party without "spoiling" or wasting their vote on a candidate who has no chance of winning. Allowing candidates to run for office with the support of more than one political party gives voters more ability to hold elected officials accountable. Politicians can count the votes they receive on the minor party’s ballot line and recognize the significance of that party’s issues or platform in their election’s outcome.

Romney menaces Muslims, immigrants and international students; Governor calls for wholesale profiling
muslims.jpgRomney, as well as scores of Republicans and Democrats alike, despite their various orientations, are fast scrambling to forestall an independent multinational class-wide movement especially after Katrina nakedly exposed before the whole world the utter uselessness of the capitalist system.

On September 14, speaking at the right-wing Heritage Foundation’s national office in Washington D.C., Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney declared, “How many individuals are coming to our state and going to those institutions who have come from terrorist-sponsored states?” referring to international students who attend the 120 colleges and universities in Massachusetts. “Do we know where they are? Are we tracking them?”
