Billiards for Justice
10 Feb 2008
Are you looking for like-minded progressives to hang out with in Boston? Want to cross-promote your events and campaigns? Are you new to the area and looking for groups to get involved in? Are you psyched about building strong cross-issue coalitions?
Join Socializing for Justice (SoJust) for Billiards for Justice - Wednesday, February 13th at 6:30PM

No program. No speaker. Just arrive and enjoy yourself.

RSVP (greatly appreciated!) at - newcomers always welcome!

We're heading to Sacco's Bowl Haven in Davis Square for some cue and pocket action. We'll have a couple of tables reserved for the pool sharks, but plenty of non-billiards hanging out as well (not to mention candlepin bowling in the very next room!)

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.

If you're involved with a group or project and want to spread the word bring flyers to share - and there'll be lots of opportunity to schmooze and network in between rounds at the table.

Sacco's Bowl Haven is at 45 Day Street in Somerville. It is right by the Davis Square T Station on the Red Line.

$5.00 to play + $2 group fee to cover expenses.

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 "where do you live? what do you do for work?" 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."

A Will for Change: New Economic Thinking
10 Feb 2008
Since economic thinking shapes the world, we can't leave economists alone to putter with their theories. Too many of them hung up their thinking caps the moment they got their degree, and stopped looking out the window.

PHILIPPINES: Lozada committed an act of valor and integrity, not destabilization
09 Feb 2008
AKBAYAN Citizens Action Party Rep. Risa Hontiveros said that dismissing Lozada’s explosive statement as an attempt to destabilize the country would not do, saying that what Lozada divulged lays accountability on the National Broadband Network (NBN) deal at the doorstep of Malacanang Presidential Palace.

Tocata y fuga por muerte política
08 Feb 2008
El bueno de Rajoy se ha dedicado–en su papel de jefe de la Oposición–, a decir “no” a todo lo propuesto por el Gobierno del PSOE. Una postura cómoda e inoperante. Además ha paseado la bandera española por todo el territorio español: ya la conocíamos, y además la respetamos.
