One of the biggest problems that most of us deal with is the problem of finding a place to live. In other words, the problem of housing. Housing is an issue that comes up over and over again. It can take the form of the sub-prime mortgage debacle that preceded the 2008 financial crisis, the rent strikes that preceded insurrection in Glasgow and Spain, squatting, land projects. It can also be seen as one of (if not the) primary compulsions driving our acceptance of waged labor.

I was originally scheduled for a parole consideration hearing in December 2015, but for unknown reasons my parole hearing date has been rescheduled for February 23, 2016 at 8:00 a.m. in a public hearing at 301 S. Ripley St., Montgomery, AL 36130.
Anyone in the area can attend and speak on my behalf, and please keep those letters coming.
In addition to the letter campaign I think a phone campaign from now until February 22, 2016.

Happy New Year, Family and Friends! Many, many thanks for so much support and care over this year from both long-standing friends and new pen pals. I feel very grateful and am always humbled by the encouragement and resources sent my way by folks who are doing so much already to increase our collective chances for survival. The news has been full of stories about someone winning the big money pool that has accumulated for the US Lotto – but the most important “win” has nothing to do with money. I am betting on the movement to win big this year: in getting more control over their communities and defending against police brutality and racial inequality, in winning more victories for animal and in the defense of wild spaces, in creating social relations based on respect, dignity and compassion for all people… irregardless of their race, orientation, creed or gender presentation.
A massive movement, involving burning of police posts, etc, is erupting in Tunisia at this very moment with very little publicity, as far as I can see: at the moment I can only find this radical site that 's reporting it.

There was a rumor, among professors who came on board later, that the founders of Tolstoy College originally wanted to name their school after Leon Czolgosz, the Polish-American anarchist who assassinated President William McKinley. Tolstoy, being a pacifist, gave them better cover with the administration of the State University of New York at Buffalo, under which the school operated, or so the story goes.

A lot has changed in the past quarter. The heat of summer finally abated and the El Nino rains have begun! There has been a noticeable downtick in drama around these parts and the fourth annual East Bay Book & Conversation Event went swimmingly. We are very proud of the titles we have to offer you this quarter and look forward to your feedback.
