  • Angry protesters participated in three linked actions to call attention to the importance of accountability by police and other city officials here. People filled Fountain Square in the city's center at lunchtime and marched through downtown through Over-the-Rhine, a tarnished jewel in the Queen City's crown.
    What sparked the J2 events was the April 7 killing of an unarmed young African-American man by a city police officer enforcing 14 misdemeanors warrants the 19-year-old had outstanding. Officer Stephen Roach has been indicted on two misdemeanor counts for his killing Timothy Thomas.

  • In response to the conduct and results of the 2000 election, a number of organizations are joining together with the conviction that now is the time to push for real democratic reform. One step in this effort is the "Pro-Democracy Convention", taking place in Philadelphia June 29-July 1 at the Annenberg Center. Sponsored by the Center for Constitutional Rights and a coalition of national and local groups (including District 1199C, Black Radical Congress, Green Party of Philadelphia, Kensington Welfare Rights Union, and Veterans for Peace), it is the latest event in a campaign focused around "The Voters' Bill of Rights".

  • On April 29, 2001, George W. Bush completed his first 100 days in office as President of the United States - the period historically used as a benchmark to measure progress and determine the prevailing political direction of the new government. While Bush campaigned under the slogan "compassionate conservatism," almost all major policy initiatives put forth since his inauguration in January are far more conservative than compassionate. Most of the legislative and policy proposals fall under one of five general categories: environmental issues, women’s rights, tax-cut legislation, missile defense, and faith-based initiatives.

  • Throughout the weekend of April 6th through 8th, approximately 1000 activists converged upon State College, Pennsylvania for the 2nd Annual Solidarity Conference. The conference, which was intended to attract those who are already active in their communities, was also intended to focus upon practical advice and concrete strategy rather than dry facts that can be gathered by reading a book on a particular topic. Several conference attendees noted that they felt the conference was, in fact, the perfect combination of each.

  • The Simple Way is a group of 14 Christian radicals living in Kensington, North Philadelphia. Out of the 2 houses they inhabit on Potter St. they operate a dollar-a-bag thrift store and feed up to 50 people a day from their kitchen. Over the years, they’ve found themselves disrupting City Council meetings fighting the Sidewalk Behavior Ordinance, getting their asses hauled to jail in housing actions, demonstrating for Mumia Abu-Jamal’s freedom and last summer being arrested and locked up at street blockades to disrupt the Republican National Convention. Stranger to neither tedious bureaucratic struggle with the city nor direct action, the Simple Way’s current struggle to obtain neighborhood control of 2 abandoned buildings on the block is leading the group to direct action.
