Five Weather Underground members met with a film crew to produce "Underground" in 1975. Around two hours, the film contains conversation with the Weather while they were still underground. "People make history" said Billy Ayres. Cathy Wilerson, Kathy Boudin, Bernardine Dohrn, Jeff Jones, and Billy Ayres talk about how they came to consider themselves revolutionaries and followed up their belief with armed struggle against the U.S. Archival footage of the "Days of Rage" is shown, along with other clips of revolutionaries and insurrections within the U.S. Speeches by Malcolm X, Martin Luther King Junior, Rapp Brown, Fidel Castro, and Fred Hampton appear throughout the film. "We're going to retake this county in the streets," the Weatherman said.
This film is not to be confused with the recently released "The Weather Underground." Underground is filmed during a revolutionary struggle, not afterwards when retrospect has blurred perspective.

Campus California TG is an international institute creating positive development, here in the USA and actually all over the world through the volunteers and projects. The Develpment Instructor program specifically, will develop and focus on the planet, a living organism, which includes humans and cities, (of course) and activities which promote and create a healthy and high quality life for all.

Wheels of Justice Tour coming to Portland
Members of Voices in the Wilderness (www.vitw.org), the Palestine Right to Return Coalition (www.Al-Awda.org), the Middle East Children's Alliance (www.mecaforpeace.org), and affiliates of the International Solidarity Movement (www.palsolidarity.org) take to the road in a colorfully decorated full-size school bus for the Wheels of Justice Tour. Starting in mid-August 2003, this tour will canvass the western United Sates to challenge and educate North Americans on the occupation of Palestine and Iraq.

Having seen and lived with war, terror and occupation in Iraq and Palestine, participants in the Wheels of Justice offer first-hand experience irrespective of partisan politics and sound bite sloganeering. To build upon the growing domestic opposition to war against Iraq and occupation of Palestine, the Wheels of Justice Tour will cover the United States with education, outreach, training, active non-violent resistance, and community-building. The tour rolls into Missoula on Thursday, October 2.

The Pitfalls of the *Anybody But Bush* Strategy
For those who profess to want to build an alternative to the corrupt two-party system, there is never a "good" time to work for that alternative. In the way the U.S. political system works, successfully building a left-wing political alternative always presents the possibility that the Republicans will win instead. So like atheists on their deathbed who call for a priest to perform last rights, many activists are intimidated into swallowing hard and voting for the Democrat.

Bush Requests $65 Billion for Corporate Rape of Iraq
Psssssst, kid!  Wanna see my WAR BUDGET? That isn't his education budget, that will be the US taxpayers' tab for the continuing Bush Iraq fiasco.

The Republican looting of the US Treasury is now exceeding over half a TRILLION dollars for this year alone. Most of the new Iraq money will likely make its way back into the pockets of Bush supporters, and Republican leaning corporations in the US. Sensing that Bush and his administration are a cabal of warmongering criminals who can be trusted only to line their own pockets, France and Germany say they would only contribute to a fund NOT in US control (see below).

He said he was a different kind of Republican, a man of honor and compassion who would look out for the kids. It was all smoke, of course photo-ops in a cynical campaign. You knew it was smoke when the "compassionate" George W. Bush put Dick Cheney on the ticket, a former congressman who had voted against funding for Head Start, against subsidizing school lunches and against federal aid for college students. In other words, against kids.
