Protest and Resistance
28 Aug 2004
To protest is to speak out against, to let it be known that you do not like a certain action of another.

To protest is an act of intellectual commitment. It is to say, “Sir, I protest” when you are slapped in the face…

To protest is to play a game. You go to a demonstration, listen to speeches, wave signs, and go home to see if you got on television.

There are many toys in the game of protest.

There is a picket line. Originally a picket line was formed by striking workers to keep strikebreakers out. If anyone tried to cross that picket line, the strikers tried to kill him. Today you get a permit from the police to picket…

There is no protest if permission must be sought and rules abided by. WE have allowed the form that our protest takes to be defined for us by those we protest against. Thus, our protest is drained of its power because we do not have the power to make our protest effective.

The Ugly American Comes Home to Roost
28 Aug 2004
Over many decades the term "Ugly American" became known outside of the United States as a descriptive term for Americans traveling or working overseas. I first heard this term as a child when my father recommended to my old brother that he read a book by the same title. My brother, a child at the time, was interested in the foreign perception of Americans. He had followed closely the Vietnam war and was struggling to understand foreign sentiment towards Americans, which was largely negative.

28 Aug 2004
1_timessquare1.jpgThe New York IMC is reporting massive arrests during an incredibly vibrant and huge critical mass ride that wound around the city. At one point the ride was reportedly 45 blocks long with estimates of anywhere between 5,000 and 10,000 bicyclists participating. Police created barricades in an attempt to break the ride up, and after trapping smaller sections of the ride, arrested hundreds and loaded them onto city busses.
