Call for Medical Aid Donations for Kobane
Kobane sorely needs medical supplies to maintain the defense of the city and many civilians. Doctors inside Kobane are fixing up people the best they can, including external fixation limbs mangled by gunshot wounds, but still people are bleeding to death after reaching aid stations and while being held up by Turkish border police on the way to nearby Turkish hospital. The main clinic in Kobane has been overrun by IS and later destroyed and medical care is now taking place in private homes. IS also recently burned an entire supply warehouse belonging to a local Kurdish relief organization. We've formulated a list with suggested donations that individuals and collectives can pack up and mail themselves.

EMERGENCY APPEAL: PLEASE MAKE A PHONE CALL IN SUPPORT OF COLIN, FIRED FOR UNION ORGANIZING
Last week IWW member Colin was fired from his job as a baker at Insomnia Cookies in Harvard Square. A trained organizer, Colin was working to unionize the company, which has been dogged by charges of racism, wage theft, failure to provide breaks and retaliation against union activists. Last year Insomnia was forced to pay back wages to four IWW members illegally fired for striking. Colin is the sixth IWW member unfairly fired by the company in less than two years.
