El Salvador Solidarity Activists and Community Organizations Dispute Department of Justice Order
BOSTON, MA: Last January the U.S.-based El Salvador solidarity group—the Committee in Solidarity with the People of El Salvador (CISPES)—received a letter from the U.S. Department of Justice, citing the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) of 1938 and questioning the organization’s relationship with the leftist Salvadoran political party known as the Farabundo Marti Front for National Liberation, or FMLN.

The Long March from Cinco de Mayo to Cinco de Pentagon
17PROTEST_MEXICO,0.jpgThose of us old enough to remember might recall those halcyon days when celebrating Cinco de Mayo meant many things: closing off a street in what was then known as a “barrio”, listening to sometimes inspired and sometimes less-than-inspired music of long-sideburned Santana wannabees from the local garage bands and eating food infused with the love of the local. And we sort of listened to the bandana’d radical Chicana organizer urging us to become part of the global liberation struggle commemorated on May 5th, when badly-equipped, but inspired Mexican guerrillas defeated the forces of Napoleon III’s French Empire in the 19th century.

When people ask what I "do," I tell them that I'm an independent radio producer. When their eyes glaze over, I add "freelance journalist." When they ask "what paper do you write for," I give up.

May Day: Boston for Workers Rights Unite!
mayday.jpgBoston, Mass.--About 100 Anarchists, Socialists, Union Orgainzers, Immigrant Rights Workers and Anti-War activists gathered in Boston to celebrate and / or protest the issues of the day. It was hard to tell which was more prominent. During the march through the streets, the Second Line Social Aid and Pleasure Society Brass Band, certainly gave the event a celebratory feel, but at the rally at Boston Common, there were somber calls for human rights for immigrants, and better working conditions for all – citizens and immigrants alike.

Denying Palestinians Free Movement in the West Bank
This article summarizes an August 2007 B'Tselem report now available in print. It's one of a series of studies it conducts on life in Occupied Palestine to reveal what major media accounts suppress. This one is titled: "Ground to a Halt - Denial of Palestinians' Freedom of Movement in the West Bank."

B'Tselem has a well-deserved reputation for accuracy and integrity. It's the Jerusalem-based independent Israeli Information Center for Human Rights in the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT). It was founded in 1989 by prominent academics, attorneys, journalists and Knesset members to "document and educate the Israeli public and policymakers about human rights violations in (Occupied Palestine), combat (the Israeli public's) denial, and create a human rights culture in Israel" to convince government officials to respect human rights and obey international law.
