Yet main streets in other communities are losing their uniqueness to national chains and mega-retailers. What can JP do to preserve our strong locally-owned business community?

The Jamaica Plain Forum, JP's new community-based lecture series, presents Stacy Mitchell, author of "Big Box Swindle: The True Cost of Mega-Retailers and the Fight of America's Independent Businesses". Thursday, June 28th at 7:00pm. Free

Proposed program for Sacco and Vanzetti Commemoration in August 2007
sv_2.jpgAfter a few meetings initiated by last year's Sacco and Vanzetti Parade from the Stony Brook Park to the Forest Hills Cemetery, the organizers of this year's commemoration events have come up with a proposed program. They have also decided to formalize an organization to take on this task for this year and beyond: the Sacco and Vanzetti Commemoration Society. The society is open to all those individual and organizations that believe that it is important to keep the memory of these two working class anarchist organizers framed up and killed by the State of Massachusetts on August 23, 1927.

While the program becomes firm we have developed promotional flyers for people to save the date and to start raising awareness about the commemoration coming up. You can download them from our website http://saccoandvanzetti.org

Victory to the Quincy Teachers: The Fight for a Just Contract is Our Fight as Well
DSC_0051.jpgI must apologize at the outset for not having posted a solidarity statement with the Quincy, Massachusetts Education Association (QEA) before today, June 11, 2007 the second day of their walkout. This is doubly egregious as I was born in Quincy-the City of Presidents (John Adams and his son John Quincy Adams). The Quincy teacher walked out on Friday June 8, 2007 after taking a vote. From the news that I had heard I believed that their action was a one day affair a fairly familiar way to deal with stalled contract negotiations. However, these brothers and sisters are for real and seem determined to make their point and get a just contract. This in the face of a state Labor Relations Board decision that their walkout is illegal and the determination of the Quincy School Committee to seek a court injunction to force the teachers back to work.
