Hey Everyone! Ted here with Second World. We're a fair trade non-profit organization based in Lowell, Massachusetts. Our mission is to raise awareness, not only locally but globally, about fair trade and human rights through the use of music, film, photography, and all sorts of media and entertainment. We want to close the gap between what we deem "first world" and "third world" by creating a medium where the two come together: a "Second World." So let me tell you about one of the coolest ways you can help out.

Come to the NEW ENGLAND CULTURE FEST 2006 taking place in Lowell, Massachusetts Saturday September 2nd, Labor Day weekend. It is only festival in the United States dedicated to the advancement of fair trade using media, music and fair trade art to create a better world. This festival started in 2004, with earlier events called "Cultural Installations" which infused fashion, cultural unity, and diversity into exciting and dynamic edu-tainment events. Eventually, in 2004 the festival found its' home in Lowell, Massachusetts, the home of the labor movement in the United States - and today, a rich and vibrant diverse community overflowing with music, food and culture from around the globe - the ideal place for such a groundbreaking festival! There will be tons of performances throughout the day as well as delicious food that will take your taste buds on a whirlwind trip around the world.

Let us know if you have any questions about the festival like how to be a part of it or even how to get here. Shoot us an email at info (at) or check out our website at We do have a gallery which sells fair trade jewelry, artwork, and all sorts of really awesome stuff. Come check us out at 172 Middle Street, Lowell, Massachusetts. Valerie Diallo, our director and coordinator of the event would be more than happy to chat with you. We love people so come see us and mark your calendars for the New England Culture Fest 2006 on Saturday, September 2nd! See you soon!

Re the troll comment on Wikipedia, Wikipedia
itself is a neocon promoter of the war in Iraq
which like Google's manipulated algorhythms,
eliminates true dialogue.

You are SO right. Google is a pyramid scheme designed to suck money out of mutual funds and other reckless investors. Wikipedia is a piece of crap that pretends to be objective about say, the laws of physics while at the same time denying the laws of physics apply to 9/11.

I'm so glad this is going on in my community. Lowell is becoming a much better city.
