Second Year Commemoration of Hurricane Katrina: Music and Politics
Flyer image.jpgThe Hot 8 Brass Band continues their tour of the United States and abroad with their next stops to occur at Boston’s famous Wally’s Jazz Café and the 12th annual Cambridge Caribbean Festival. The Hot 8 are a part of the Finding Our Folk Tour, which was created after Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast. FOF seeks to raise the voices of Katrina's survivors and connects them with the voices of Katrina survivors and men and women in all corners of the country who remain on the margins of citizenship. The Hot 8 Brass Band; themselves, displaced after Hurricane Katrina through their music helps reconnect people throughout the country and world to the rich traditions, history and culture of New Orleans.

Latin America Solidarity Lives!
wae_justicia.jpgAdam Reilly’s--or shall I say O’Reilly--“Ebbing Radicalism in Cambridge” (Boston Phoenix, 7/25/07) reads like a Fox News Op-ed piece. It’s nothing more than a regrettable attempt to cut down a fellow human who has struggled on the frontlines in Guatemala where the US oversaw and bankrolled a dirty war that cost hundreds of thousands of lives--all while ignoring the actual issues of US intervention, poverty, and violence that continue to thwart justice in Latin America today.

This August, Boston will remember the 80th anniversary of the execution of radical Italian immigrants Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti whose trial is widely regarded as one of the greatest miscarriages of justice in American history.

Vicious Police Attack on IWW Solidarity March in Providence
providence.jpgOn Saturday, August 11, 2007, Alexandra Svoboda, a member of the labor union Industrial Workers of the World, was brutally assaulted by North Providence Police officers as she was peacefully demonstrating with a group of fellow union members and supporters in support of workers at HWH/Dragonland in New York City. She was attacked while she was complying with orders given by the NPPD to move towards the sidewalk. Alexandra was then tackled and brutalized by the officers, suffering a grotesquely broken and dislocated knee and a ruptured vascular artery. She is currently recovering from her first operation at the Rhode Island Hospital and is awaiting a second surgery scheduled for Wednesday.

Stop the War on Immigrants! Stop the Raids!
newbedfordchildren.jpgBoston, August 13, 2007. - Another immigration raid has taken place in the usual military style, this time in Chelsea, Massachusetts. Proclaiming that they were going after "criminals", Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents rounded up 27 "Brazilians" in yet another effort to terrorize our immigrant community. According to ICE, the 27 arrested were part of "identity-fraud rings" that sold workers' permits and green cards to undocumented migrants. According to affidavits, an ICE agent over an extended period sold false documents to a group of undocumented migrants for thousands of dollars. ICE then made the arrests. This operation reflects the business as usual atmosphere in this country where the government fleeces undocumented workers of their money and then they are hauled off to jail.

Hiroshima_Panel_Fire.jpgToday is the 62nd anniversary of the destruction of Hiroshima and its people in split seconds, 8/6/45 -- the worst massacre and bloodiest day in American and Japanese history.

Survivors (hibakusha) are still dying from the long-term after effects, their average age now 73, the cenotaph in Hiroshima now bears more than 253,000 names.
