Deregulated Markets and Alternative Economics
17 Jun 2008
In the last ten years there was more speculation than ever, more than before the 1930 worldwide economic crisis. A policy of deregulated financial markets made this possible. That real investment profits turn out relatively small encourages the speculation tendency.

Working people relying on stimulus checks, coins and lotto
16 Jun 2008
The platforms of the Socialist Party USA and Peace and Freedom Party outline fundamental approaches that will promote economic policy that will benefit working people. Both socialist parties are rejecting the economic strategies of the Democrats, Republicans, and their candidates; advancing U.S. imperialism and waging war is not the answer for our economy that is now in economic free fall.

EU in Chaos after Ireland's `No' Vote
16 Jun 2008
Ireland voted 54%`No' on the Lisbon or EU constitution. In the draft, economic and business rights would have eclipsed social and union rights. While the EU (like the US) is in utter confusion, truth-telling and alternative economics can lead to a future of balance and justice.

Recess for Justice
15 Jun 2008
Join Socializing for Justice (SoJust) for Recess on Sunday, June 22nd at 1pm. Arrive by yourself or bring your outdoorsy friends!

Recess for Justice is going down at Southwest Corridor Park right off Lamartine and Boylston Streets in JP. (Exit Stonybrook 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.)

Bring your favorite outdoor game or check out the assortment of fun we'll have on hand: Frisbees, kickball & chalk (for 4-square!), nerf football, 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.

Around 3pm we'll start to figure out what to do next. We might go to Ula Cafe or Java Jo's for coffee, smoothies, snacks and board games (bring 'em!).

Look no further if want to cross-promote your events and campaigns while tossing around a Frisbee, you're seeking like-minded folks to share a game of 4-square with, or are new to the area and looking for groups to get involved in. If you want to build a strong cross-issue social justice movement, SoJust is for you!

No Program. No Speaker. Just fun.

RSVP (and check out photos from the last time we held Recess for Justice) at - newcomers always welcome!

Fee: $2 to cover group expenses.

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.

Want to connect outside of SoJust events? Members view and post events, job & volunteer announcements, roommate searches, etc. on the website - just click 'Messages'. The SoJust Calendar is packed with social justice-related events held throughout Greater Boston. Help us keep it filled - tell us about events you hear about.

Iraq War Creates Shortage of Night Vision Goggles for Civilian US Medical Pilots
15 Jun 2008
The war in Iraq is creating a major - and perhaps deadly - shortage of night vision goggles for civilian pilots who fly medical helicopters in the U.S. The National Transportation Safety Board has encouraged the use of such equipment since 2006 to reduce the risk of deadly nighttime crashes during emergency medical flights. But air ambulance services that fly sick or injured people to the hospital have been put on waiting lists of a year or more by makers of night vision gear because the U.S. military has contracts that give it priority.

The events described below justifify the removal of our 'Orthodox Jewish' U.S.Attorney General Muckasey as well as the fascist Israeli-American 'citizen' Michael Chertoff who helped create the U.S. Homeland Security office he oversees as well as ICE or Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Fitting that ICE is also a slang term used for methamphetamines in English.
