The Late, Great Howard Zinn
Howard Zinn was above all a gentleman of unflagging grace, humility and compassion.

No American historian has left a more lasting positive legacy on our understanding of the true nature of our county, mainly because his books reflect a soul possessed of limitless depth.

Howard’s PEOPLE’S HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES will not be surpassed. As time goes on new chapters will be written in its spirit to extend its reach.

But his timeless masterpiece broke astonishing new ground both in its point of view and its comprehensive nature. The very idea of presenting the American story from the point of view of the common citizen was itself revolutionary. That he pulled it off with such apparent ease and readability borders on the miraculous. That at least a million Americans have bought and read it means that its on-going influence is immense. It is truly a history book that has and will continue to change history for the better.

Mutual Aid Disaster Relief in Haiti Team One on the Ground in Haiti
Mutual Aid Disaster Relief in Haiti Team 1 has landed safely in Haiti and established themselves in the World Harvest compound. Their internet access is intermittent, but the latest available updates can be found at http://mutualaiddisasterrelief.org/reports.shtml
Summaries of the updates will be added to this article regularly.

Boston IMC's previous story on Mutual Aid Disaster Relief is at http://boston.indymedia.org/feature/display/209697/index.php

They have enough supplies for immediate operations, but will need to restock soon. They now have a Creole translator. Get more information and donate at http://mutualaiddisasterrelief.org/

UPDATE: MADRIH is now recognized as an official NGO by the UN, which gives them access to medical supplies and possibly an ambulance. They still need money for food and gas though, so please donate generously.

Aid to Haiti Hopelessly Inadequate, Poorly Organized
US aid to Haiti has been a tiny fraction of what is needed. With hundreds of thousands injured, and more without food and water, President Obama's feeble efforts have been aimed mostly at rescuing tourists and diplomats, with little consideration given to the people of Haiti. In addition, what assistance has arrived is being mired in bureaucratic red tape and military intransigence.

Mutual Aid Disaster Relief for Haiti Needs Assistance
A group of US-based street medics is organizing an independent, mobile medic team to offer direct mutual aid to survivors of the disastrous earthquake in Haiti. This group has the benefit of not being attached to a larger organization or government bureaucracy, which means they can mobilize in communities not currently being reached by relief efforts. Many of these same people were involved in the effective, community-based medical response to Hurricane Katrina, including the Common Ground Clinic.
