Recess for Justice
12 Jul 2009
Join SoJust for Recess for Justice at Southwest Corridor Park* in Jamaica Plain on Sunday, July 19, from 1:00pm-3:00pm. Bring your favorite outdoor game or check out the assortment of fun we'll have on hand: Frisbees, kickball & chalk (for 4-square!), basketball, softball (bring a glove) and whatever other randomness we can think of. If it's hot we can run through the fountain sprinkler to cool off!

RSVP at Newcomers always welcomed!

Cost: $2 to cover group expenses.

Join us if you want to cross-promote your events and campaigns, are new to the area and looking for groups to get involved in, or you've been looking for like-minded progressives to hang with in Boston.

At SoJust events you can hang out with friends, make new ones, find a date, get the scoop on a job, and find out what's going on this weekend - political or social. And the best part is that SoJust members share your vision of building a more just world.

No Program. No Speaker. Just us.

Hey organizers! If you're involved with a group or project and want to spread the word bring flyers - there'll be lots of opportunity to schmooze and network.

*Recess for Justice is at the Stony Brook Court right by Lamartine and Boylston Streetsin JP. (Exit Stony Brook T station on the Orange line, walk directly across the street to the park - we'll be on the field and in the courts right in front of you.)

From our FAQs:
"It's not very easy for me to meet new people and I'm not really one for small talk."
We hear you. That's why at SoJust events, in addition to traditional name tags, we have "Ask Me About" and "Looking For" tags. That way you can slap whatever you're into lately up on your shirt and wait for fellow SoJusters to approach you. These seem to do the trick of moving past the basic "what do you do for work? “Where do you live?" questions to conversations that lead to more substantial connections.

"What actually happens at events?"
You'll always be greeted by friendly folks who can help get you socializing, introduce you to people, and chat with you about questions or wishes. It's likely a few people will be there promoting their campaigns and issues (yes, SoJust welcomes that sort of behavior). At our bigger events, there's always a literature table to toss down flyers, postcards, and other paraphenalia about events around town. Most importantly, we can pretty much guarantee there will be someone there you've never met before. As one of our members said, "You are bringing together people who might never get together otherwise - if that ain't a step towards justice I don't know what is."

Want to connect outside of SoJust events? Members can view and post events, job & volunteer announcements, roommate searches, etc. on the 'Message Board' and 'Calendar' at

Obama, Ghana, and African oil
11 Jul 2009
Barack Obama's visit to Ghana is, most fundamentally, about West African oil and natural gas, and control of the corridors for transporting it through the Gulf of Guinea, on the West African Coast. Nigeria, the greatest source of African oil for export, is at the center of the African oil producing states bordering the Gulf, and the Niger River is the corridor for transporting Nigerian oil and gas, and now, oil and gas from landlocked Niger, as well.

75th Commemoration of the 1934 SF General Strike
10 Jul 2009
The San Francisco general strike and West Coast maritime strike in 1934 was one of the most important and successful strikes in the history of the United States. This strike along with the Minneapolis Teamsters strike and Toledo strike were high points for the American labor movement. In the San Francisco general strike, Bloody Thursday was on July 5, 1934 when strikers Nick Bordoise and Howard Sperry were killed and 109 people were wounded as a result of the police attack on strikers and their supporters. Despite the calling of the National Guard and the violent attack on unions and workers in San Francisco this strike was won.
