Greece's Trial of the Century
On January 22nd, in the remote mountain town of Amfissa, Greece, the trial began of Athens police officers Epaminondas Korkoneas and Vassilis Saraliotis. Korkoneas murdered 15 year old anti-authoritarian Alexandros Grigoropoulos on December 6th, 2008, and Saraliotis is being tried as an accomplice for encouraging the killing. The shooting sparked more than a month of full-blown insurrection, and though it occurred in central Athens, authorities postponed the trial from December 2009 to January 20th, 2010, and moved it 125 miles northwest from the Greek capital in hopes of avoiding more civil unrest.

WhiteChapel’s Community Spaces
Words and Photos by Kassie Carlson

Whitechapel is an incredibly progressive area of London home to countless radicals and open-minded individuals. Once the home of the infamous Jack the Ripper and anarcho-syndicalist writer Rudolf Rocker, Whitechapel is commonly known for its local bars and restaurants, but also as a central area for community-based activism. Some centers include the London Action Resource Center, an anarchist-publishing house called Freedom Press and a local Food Not Bombs. Whitechapel Anarchist Group circulates a free newsletter called W.A.G. that can be seen in the hands of locals and radicals alike.

AID to Haiti! Not armed intervention!
The combination of an imperialist and racist mindset with defense of capitalist-imperialist material interests has led to refusal to save many thousands of dying people who could have been saved. It’s murder.

The Powerful Testimony of Dr. Aafia Siddiqui
Aafia Siddiqui is a Pakistani neuroscientist who was educated at MIT and Brandeis. She was kidnapped by Pakistani intelligence agents and US soldiers in Pakistan in 2003, and held at Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan for five years, where she was repeatedly tortured. Now she is on trial in US federal court for allegedly seizing a soldier's rifle and attempting to shoot him during her abduction.

Her fate is now in the hands of the jury, but the prosecution had some difficulties during the trial...

The Teabagger Strategy: Obama and the Right
teabagger1.jpgA year into President Barack Obama’s first term, it has become depressingly clear that he is, as Jay Leno put it, "our greatest Republican President ever." From warrantless wiretapping to bank bailouts to endless war, on issue after issue his policies have proven identical to those of George W. Bush. And unlike Bush, Obama’s position at the head of the Democratic Party, along with his immense talent as a salesman, allows him to advance the Republican agenda with almost no opposition from self-described liberals. But this unexpected windfall also presents the Republicans, or rather their corporate paymasters, with a dilemma. How do they get Obama reelected while pretending to oppose him?

Protesters Call for Closing Guantanamo Bay Detention Center
gitmoprotest.jpgOn January 18th, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, around 30 people gathered in the freezing cold on the Boston Common to demand that President Obama follow through on his promise to close down Guantanamo Bay Prison. The President had vowed to close Guantanamo Bay—located on a US Naval Base in Cuba where hundreds of accused "terrorists" are detained, many without charges or access to lawyers—within his first year, which ended on January 20th. The President, along with human rights organizations, have condemned Guantanamo for the use of torture and countless other violations of international human rights agreements.

Howard Zinn, Presente!
zinn1.jpgWith great sorrow, we mark the death of one of anarchism’s most thoughtful and productive minds, but it is with great joy that we celebrate his contributions to the movement for true justice and freedom. We share our joy for what he has given us with his actions and words, here in Boston and across the world. Far from being a lofty academic, before his professorship and writing career he was a dock worker from Brooklyn who went on to fight in WWII, earning his degree afterward on the GI Bill. The following is a statement from members of the Sacco and Vanzetti Commemoration Society:
