Anarchist Ideals in an Ideal Community: Boston Anarchists Talk on Strategic Resistance
a_in_a180.jpgAnna Marie’s father was an Italian immigrant with anarchistic ideas but who in the 1920s didn’t identify himself openly as an anarchist. He raised his daughter in the rough and demanding environment of a working class family where hierarchical powers were not to be trusted and human relationships were critical for the survival of shrinking societies. Later in the 1940s and 50s, Anna Marie felt naturally attracted to the beat poets and dharma bums, but it was only when she read Emma Goldman that she connected with the “deep desires of anarchist ideals.”

Boston Delegation to the World Social Forum 2007 in Nairobi Kenya Proposes Intercontinental Unity in the Struggle for Migrant Workers Rights in the World
uhuru4-b.jpgThis activity seeks to demonstrate the need to join forces in the world to confront the injustices of a condition created by contemporary capitalism: large masses of migrant workers desperately seeking work to survive.

The Problem the Boston Globe has with Muslims
waraffiche2 (2).jpgFor several years the news media have reported increasing numbers of controversies involving Muslim communities throughout the USA as well as in Europe. Recently, Representative Goode and US Holocaust Museum Memorial Museum Council member Dennis Prager objected to US Representative Ellison's use of a Quran during the congressional oath-taking ceremony. Since Ellison's election, Goode and many other politicians and pundits have been demanding changes in immigration law to decrease or to stop the immigration of Muslims to the USA as if the Ellison's ancestors have not been residing in the territory of the USA since the eighteenth century. Such proposals constitute an unsubtle statement that Muslims have no place in America. Muslims seem to us somewhat exotic, and are therefore easy to stereotype. Dumping on Muslims is fun, cheap, and easy.

The unwillingness of American and Western societies in general to confront naked Islamophobic incitement recalls so many pathological actions associated with the development of modern anti-Semitism in Central and Eastern Europe that we Americans must ask ourselves whether Islamophobia is the New Anti-Semitism.

Boston Joins Protesters Worldwide: Shut Down Guantanamo, Now!
dsc02947[1] (2).jpgBoston, Mass.-- “I’m a litigator here in Boston and I have been working on representing six men detained in Guantanamo Bay Cuba since January 20, 2002. I had the opportunity to go down to the base. I met with these guys. I looked into their eyes. I have spoken with them and have spoken extensively with their families,” said Jeff Gleason, defense attorney with WilmerHale and the Center for Constitutional Rights. “This is of course the 5th anniversary of the opening of the Guantanamo detention facility. Guantanamo has become a powerful image, both at home and abroad, and has come to represent the very worst in the Bush administration’s approach to the war on terror.”
