Bil'in's weekly demo. After shabab confronted Israeli Occupation Forces IOF responded with tear gas and rubber bullets.
Live Coverage of Occupy Wall Street began noon September 17th.
For the fifth week in a row, activists gathered in downtown San Francisco to protest BART over police shootings and the agency's ongoing strategy to stifle dissent. Although protests against BART began shortly after Charles Hill was gunned down by a BART police officer, the momentum quickly died down. But when BART boasted to the news media that they had silenced a protest by shutting down cell service in the tunnel, it ignited a new call for protest under the banner Anonymous.
On August 29, members of Anonymous called for a third weekly protest against the BART administration's decision to cut cell service to stifle protest and the recent shooting death of Charles Hill.

Scott Crow is an Austin-based anarchist community organizer, political activist, and writer. His grassroots organizing projects include the post-Katrina Common Ground Collective in New Orleans, which has been called the largest anarchist-influenced organization in modern U.S. history. Scott has worked with groups like Greenpeace, ACORN, and the Rainforest Action Network, and currently works at an anarchist recycling center cooperative in Austin. Scott’s political activities have led the FBI to label him a "domestic terrorist," and earlier this year he was featured in a front page article in The New York Times about FBI surveillance of political activists. Scott's book, Black Flags and Windmills: Hope, Anarchy and the Common Ground Collective, will be published by PM Press in September, 2011.

The Citizens United Supreme Court decision gave corporations a green light to secretly funnel in as much money as they want to elect candidates. The justices in their supreme wisdom have once again privileged corporations over citizens. The results have been dramatic. Even with a weak economy a record amount of cash has flooded political campaigns. Although corporations are not mentioned anywhere in the Constitution or Bill of Rights a series of legal decisions have given them the rights of personhood and free speech. Focusing on limiting or even stopping corporate harms is an inadequate response to a fundamental problem. And that is corporations rule and not the people. Citizens are marginalized and are left with Coke and Pepsi choices. Paul Cienfuegos is a community organizer and activist. He co-founded Democracy Unlimited of Humboldt County in Northern California, an organization which works to dismantle corporate rule. He lectures and leads workshops on this topic.
