Sierra Leone Movement Under Attack!
chernoh-alpha-m-bah.jpgSlanderous news media has appeared in a government linked newspaper and a campaign of rumors has been initiated, obviously designed to undermine and isolate the Africanist Movement and its director, Chernoh Alpha M. Bah. Sierra Leoneís neocolonial government is apparently moving to criminalize the Africanist Movement in order to justify jailing and/or otherwise destroying these courageous leaders of our struggle for African self-determination.

Alert from the Zapatistas: 200 Soldiers Invade Zapatista Lands, Resisted and Ejected by the People
p3135248.jpgComrades of the Other Campaign in Mexico and other countries, we ask you to be on the alert because the soldiers said they’ll be back in two weeks. We don’t want war. We want peace with justice and dignity. But we have no other choice than to defend ourselves, resist them, and eject them when they come looking for a confrontation with us in the towns of the Zapatista support bases...All we can tell you is to look and see where the provocation is coming from. We’re now informing you of what’s going on, hopefully in time.

[This is one of many police operatives carried out in the past months in Chiapas. See chiapas.indymedia.org for more information]

SDS Takes Over Evergreen State College with Style
sds_today300.jpgIt has been twelve days since the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) took over the fourth floor of an administration building in Evergreen State College (TESC) in Olympia, Washington, to protest the unilateral decision of the Vice President for Student Affairs, Art Costantino, of taking away their student group status. The sit-in was originally organized “to draw attention to the diminishing rights of students at TESC and to regain SDS’ status as a student organization” but it quickly evolved into a mobilization of wits against the establishment. Since the takeover, students have organized political concerts, speeches, and radical workshops that range from queer theory to direct action and economic alternatives to neoliberalism. They have also re-named the building where they're staging the sit-in, the People's University.

MS. STOVALL'S CANTICLES
mornings.gifNew England is hardly known for an absence of culture or a failure to appreciate the arts. In fact, Cambridge, Massachusetts can legitimately be tagged as the epicenter, the cradle of the tension and brawls between the cultural melieus of tradition and modernity. Sparks fly from these collisions and engagements on a daily, if not hourly schedule.

The work of Suesan Stovall, now on exhibit in the Neil and Angelica Rudenstine Gallery of the W.E.B. DuBois Institute for African and African American Research at Harvard University is an example of such an encounter. For in this canticle, Ms. Stovall has fronted and framed her song and stories, and in the house that Henry Louis “Skip” Gates built, her images, both stinging and sacred, float in the ether as if she’s held a backstage pass to the African American experience. They are neither burdened nor ponderous, yet insisting of place somewhere, talisman like, and in all American households.

Plan Colombia Heads for Mexico
spp14.jpgCall it NAFTA on steroids. In fact, Plan Mexico is part of the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America's (SPP) grand scheme to militarize the continent, let corporate predators exploit it, and keep people from three countries none the wiser. Most aid will go to Mexico's military and police forces with its major portion earmarked back to US defense contractors for equipment, training and maintenance. It's how these schemes always work.
