Can I get a witness?
25 Mar 2005
Modified: 10:40:35 AM
Anyone who witnessed the arrests or the events leading to the arrests on Sunday should call Ursula @ the National Lawyers Guild: 617-227-7335, as soon as possible, if they would like to testify. Even if you did not witness the precipitating factors, your testimony may still be helpful. The police claim three of the people resisted arrest, which Massachusetts defines as endangering the life or well-being of a Police Officer.
The more witnesses the better, whatever your viewpoint.
The trials of Mike Long and Jamie Phillips are likely to be held in June or July, when many of the students who were at the rally may not be around.

Quebec: Student Strike Sweeping Province
25 Mar 2005
It has been already a month now since a massive student strike has been sweeping through Québec. It all started in late February when approximately 10 student unions, mainly from the Montréal area, went on an unlimited general strike.
This is a strike in reaction to Liberal government cuts and for accessible education. A strike, if victorious, that will ensure that (almost) everybody has a chance to study, and that Cégeps and Universities are not just available for the rich and privilieged few.

Gunner Palace of Lies- Movie Review
24 Mar 2005
This review may be a bit belated but I didn't really figure out what was bugging me about the movie until yesterday. "Gunner Palace" bills itself as a neutral, objective, "no politics," documentary which lets the soldiers fighting the Iraq war speak for themselves.
