I'm a little slow on the intake on this one. I just learned that brother Jacob killed himself in September. I know he'd seen a lot of uglyness and that can play extra hard on a kind and gentle soul. I'm sorry you had to go. See ya when I see ya .

Activists, some say Anarchists, occupied this church when the parishioners were locked out by the church and held the space long enough to draw major media attention to the situation. The church reamains opperational. I'm very proud to have played my part in this drama.
There is another film currently being produced about this "occupation"
but Shake the Devil Off seems to have done a really good job of putting all into historical context.
St. Augustine Church, built by free black people with slave labour in 1841, was the first place of worship where slaves, free people of color and whites sat side by side in prayer. It is a highly significant symbol for the African-American community in America.
Wed, 08 Oct 2014 17:10:36 +0000Original deProgramming The video below is from a 40k strong protest against some NYC cops who unloaded 50 bullets into a guy during his bachlor party. At the end of the peaceful "Shopping For Justice" March lead by Al Sharpton a group of New Black Panthers raised their Fists in front of Macy's and burned a flag for justice. It changed nothing, didn't it. Mike Brown and Vonderritt Myers are just more in a long string of mostly black folks and other pigmented individuals that have been murdered by cops in the United States under very suspicious circumstances. More in a long string of cops who get the benefit of the doubt from a system that judges everyone else on a "if you've done nothing wrong, you've got nothing to worry about" mentality. The system requires that you trust it or they will insinuate you must be a criminal. The system takes for itself the right to be innocent until proven guilty In A Court Of Law; while it doles out judgement at the end of the barrel of a gun by using "officer discretion". Take a look at the number of cops killed in the line of duty compared to the number of unarmed people they've kiled and tell me how "fearful" for their lives the cops have a right to be. Since the Cops, the FBI and every co-opting lefty org in the country are gearing up for riots in Ferguson when they eventually let Darren Wilson return from his "get away with murder" paid vacation... there's a few things I think you should remember.

This video features Greg Palast speaking on a panel of alternative media dignataries about what we can do to reach a wider audience and be more effective as journalists working outside of the mainstream distribution outlets. The short answer: "don't be so fucking dull". This was filmed at The Boston Social Forum, a counter convention of sorts that took place in the days leading up to the Democratic National Convention in 2004.
The video was meant as a prequel to my convention coverage and was filmed and upload the day before the convention started. I met a great journalist this day and together we scouted the 1st ever instance of a designated caged area called a Protest Pen, a Freedom Cage, etc etc. No, it wasn't Greg Palast.

Soon thousands of folks will be hoping on buses heading to New York for the "Biggest Most Important Climate Change Protest in History". Every year or 2 someone makes this claim in the lead up to a protest and it rarely lives up to the hype. I wish they were always accurate and every protest could make this claim with an avalanche of ever increasing dissent that actually changes things, but alas, it just ain't so. Unfortunatly even if it is "the largest" what will be accomplished? Will the hard workin' nose to the grind stone regular folks who can't afford to pay attention to such things ever know what happened? How can you sway popular opinion when the masses don't know anything occured? It's partially the fault of mainstream media, partially the falt of alternative media and partialy the fault of a system that indoctrinates wage slaves from very early in life to believe the best they can do to make change in the world is to pick a team, red or blue; stick by their team their whole lives regardless of the teams post game antics. Regardless of whether the team gives a shit about the fans it blinds with false patriotism.

Today People Demonstrated to the WV Governor and Legislature Their Desire for Real Clean Water Safeguards and Regulatory Enforcement. The most entertainingly sick moment of the day was when Dustin White was ejected from the captial building for carrying in a jug of tap water from his fathers spigot in Boone County. The officers claimed it was an "Unknown Substance". And they're right, but that's what's coming out of people's taps. Watch the video of this incident below.

(image) Erin Brockovich and team came down to Charleston on Monday to help people protect themselves from the corporate eco terrorists that have endangered over 300k people the Charleston, WV and 8 surrounding counties. The "spill" is not over as the chemical is currently making it's way down the Kanawha River to the Ohio River and on down the Mississip. Cities getting their water from these rivers down stream are closing their intake valves and hoping it skates past them. However no one really knows how long the MCHM (4-Methylcyclohexanemethanol) has been poisoning the drinking water of all these cities.

Today I recieved 2 pleas for funds. 1 for a urban farming project that I've had a small hand in for several years and 1 for some anarchists busted in Mexico for alledgedly molotoving some shit.
Fix shit or fuck shit that is the question... on some levels it's obvious we need to both of these things, but fucking shit up is so "glamerous" that those actions usually steal all the thunder and resources from those doing the unglamerous work of building capitalist replacement infrastructure. So if you've got 2 duccats to rub together you might want to assess the fix shit/fuck shit ratio in your life and throw your privilege at one of these needs that has arisen in our community.

This was how I spent Thanksgiving 2005. It was truely an awesome experience.
The Rainbow Emergency Management Assembly gathered in Waveland Missahippie within days of the hurricane disaster, to feed people. They have receieved nothing but love and support from FEMA, Red Cross, numerous Church groups and Hancock County. It is said that before Katrina hippies would refer to Mississippi as MissAHippie because a hippie could easily go "missing" in Mississippi. Now Missahippie has a whole new meaning. The story of Waveland is that of people putting aside petty differences to do what's right and needed by our community of man.
This feabile attempt to tell an amazing tale of cross cultural volunteerism features: Vermin Supreme, Dirty Momma, Heather Bee, Pete Jones, Ben Cauldwell, Doc Stone, Organic Valley, the residents of Waveland Mississippi ... and Flower

Corporate lies focus on sowing doubt about things that would otherwise be a no brainer
... if there wasn't some expert telling you what to think.
From pharmaceuticals, tobacco, GMOs, alternative energy.. war ..
Doubt allows them the power to render you ineffective in making healthy decisions.
Doubt allows them the power to decide for you what's in the best interest of their bottom line.
Chances are, anything a corporation or governmnet tells you ... is a lie. Don't Doubt It.

The fate of tar sands development could shift to a potentially precedent-setting legal battle in Utah.
A coalition of conservation groups, including the Center for Biological Diversity, the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance and others, have filed a 253-page “request for agency action” urging the Utah Department of Air Quality to revoke its June 21 approval of a new oil refinery in Green River, Utah. The refinery is planned by the Calgary-based U.S. Tar Sands.

(image) Back in the 80's I gave my grandfather a solar powered hat with a fan on it that blows a wind on your head as long as the sun's out. I thought this would make his life working the farm in the hot sun more enjoyable. He never wore it beyond the mandatory initial try it on for everybody show. I always assumed it didn't really work because it was just a weird gimicky "future" thing. It worked. I guess it was too much technology for him. It still works, and now I'm wearing grandpa's hat.
