BPL President Bernie Margolis appears today at
Old South Meeting House
310 Washington Street
12:15 - 1:00pm
In Your Best Interests:
Libraries Restricting the Internet
The Boston Public Library restricts minors to using
"filtered" computers unless they have parental consent.
Is this protecting children from pornographic material
or is this "censorware" blocking free speech?
Boston Public Library President Bernard Margolis and
Cambridge Public Library head librarian Susan Flannery
debate the merits of filtering software.
Moderator: Dan Kennedy, senior writer at The Boston Phoenix
Ironically, debate about filtering is moot.
There are always ways for people to get around filters.
At the Meeting House
cosponsored by the Boston Public Library
Book banning and the persecution
of writers is still alive and well.

HELP PUT AND END TO THE BLOODY FUR TRADE!!!

HELP PUT AT END TO THE BLOODY FUR TRADE: PROTEST AT THE NEIMAN MARCUS SHAREHOLDERS MEETING!!!
The campaign to rid Neiman Marcus stores of all fur products began nearly four years ago in Dallas with two instore disruptions. Since then, nearly a dozen other groups have joined the campaign, making the Neiman Marcus campaign truly nation wide.
As more groups join the campaign, we have continued to escalate our tactics. Our tactics have become more strategic to target the stores during their busiest shopping times. In December alone, the police have removed or arrested activists from four stores and arrested 36 outside
of one store.
One important aspect of the campaign is the shareholders meeting, held every January in Chestnut Hill, MA. This year, the local group working on the Neiman Marcus Campaign - Boston Citizens for Animal Liberation - have planned a demonstration for this meeting. The demonstration is Friday, January 19th at 10 AM. It will last as long as the shareholders meeting.
We want to make this demonstration one that Neiman Marcus and their shareholders will not soon forget and that is why we need all your support. We are planning for activists from across the country to travel to Boston to participate in the demonstration. If you would like to come to Boston, please contact us at (preferred) or leave us a voice mail at (781) 529-7342 in order for us to arrange a place for you to stay and some one to meet you at the airport/bus station/ train station. We have many places for people to stay and boston is easily accessible by driving, trains, busses, and via major airlines.
WHO: Boston Citizens for Animal Liberation (BCAL)
WHAT: Demonstration at the Neiman Marcus shareholders meeting
WHERE: 27 Boylston Street, Chestnut Hill, MA
