Discussion on Ageism
It may just look like an angry rant to you, but this is something that is making me sick. I have no opinion until I am 18. The people that need an education can't vote to have an education because we are to young. How is my life decided from someone else with out my consent. I am 15 and am waiting until the government allows me to have a voice.

Going to Mass, with the Mayor
I was running a little late, as I had to fix my light. Normally, I wouldn't be late for such a small detail, but at this Critical Mass, riders were asked to be VERY LEGAL, as the MAYOR was riding with us. That's right, I said the mayor; at Critical Mass. I've never heard of such a thing before, so I just HAD to be there! When I got to the North Park Blocks, the Mass was still waiting for stragglers like myself, so I was in luck. I spotted Mayor Potter right away, and he wasn't busy, so I approached him, shook his hand, and thanked him for riding with us. He was very cordial, although he seemed rather nervous. I would be too, if I were a public figure, taking such a big risk.

rape culture and revolution
Over time, I am coming to see more and more ways in which the greatest thefts from us as people, and the genocides and atrocities of our past, are connected and complicit in perpetuating cycles of violence. This is one step in creating a dialogue about how to change the system and not just the symptoms, of our oppressions...

The Daily Poetry Movement
The next seven poems were inspired by the book Agents of Repression which is about the government COINTELPRO wars against revolutionary groups in the 1960s and 70s. Written by prisoners, political or non political these poems strike at the rotten cores of our injustice system. I hope you will take a read.

Blockbuster Inc. Pushes Army National Guard Recruitment
On a recent trip to blockbuster, I discovered that they are purposefully putting Army recruitment flyers inside video boxes to tell you how great joining the military is. What they don't tell you, is that you will be on the first plane to Iraq if you sign up. They only show you pictures of military personnel with all their limbs still attached. I wonder if they used pictures like this(above) if they would have the same effect?

Solidarity! Voz Vigil And Press Conference Thursday, January 27th
On Saturday, January 22nd, 2005, in Portland, Oregon, Sisters of the Road Cafe and Crossroads helped to lead a great peace march and event called Share The Dream. Many friends had the opportunity to connect with many other groups, including Romeo Sosa, Director of Voz/ Workers' Rights Education Project/Proyecto de Educacion de Derechos Laborales. After the march, he spoke to everyone about many things including that at 5pm, on Thursday, January 27th at the Portland Federal building located on SW 3rd, between Madison and Jefferson, Voz will have a vigil. I had the pleasure of speaking with Romeo on the telephone a few moments ago about it and he also said it will be a press conference. If we could have as many people attend that event as possible, it would be an awesome move of solidarity.
