WHEN THE US CONGRESS DENIED MASSES OF AMERICANS THEIR POSSIBLE FREEDOMS !
16 Apr 2008
When the wealthiest country in the world continues to allow the enslavement of the tens of thousands of their own innocent Middle Class and Working Poor to decades of false imprisonment,it's time to ask for International help!Currently there are reported to be 100,000 falsely imprisoned Americans living along with the estimated 2,000,000 US prison population nationwide.America now has the very unique distinction of not only being rated the #1 in the World for having the largest prison population,but America also has the distinct rating of having the largest wrongfully imprisoned prison population in the World as well.Our US Congress affords themselves all the perks and salary most Americans could only dream about,but ask anyone of these Leaders Of The Free World to protect our Middle Class or Working Poor Americans from continuing to be falsely imprisoned endless decades due to the lack of federal appeal legal counsel being afforded them, and you just might be thought of as being crazy?

Super Supply Drive
15 Apr 2008
Why Shop? Cause.


On Saturday, April 26 (raindate April 27) from 10am-4pm, the Boston chapter of the National Organization for Men Against Sexism (NOMAS-Boston) will be working with several local domestic violence (DV) organizations and students groups to host a Super Supply Drive. Volunteers from these groups will be collecting supplies for DV shelters outside supermarkets and drugstores in Cambridge, Somerville and Boston.



Please stop by one of the collection sites to pick up a shelter "wish list". Items needed include toiletries, baby products, cleaning supplies and gift cards. Volunteers will be on hand to provide DV resources and answer questions. Join us in support of these shelters and Sexual Assault Awareness month.



This event represents the growing recognition that countering sexual assault and domestic violence is in fact a 'men's issue' as well as a 'women's issue.'

On the conflict of the countryside in Argentina
15 Apr 2008
Red Libertaria believes that this conflict is nothing but a struggle between the bourgeoisie inside the model inaugurated by Duhalde and continued by Nestor and Cristina Kirchner and we point to the fact that workers will continue to be laid off whoever wins, until we organize and stand up to fight for our own demands and conquests.

Senate housing bill- more grief for homeowners
15 Apr 2008
Socialists across the nation are rejecting a U.S. Senate housing bill that offers little help to struggling homeowners facing foreclosure, while providing tens of billions for banks, financial institutions and big corporations. The bill (Foreclosure Prevention Act) passed in the Senate this past week by a vote of 84-12 and has been sent to the House. The vote was clearly a major setback for millions of homeowners and a big win for banks and big businesses.
