Supporting Bolivian revolution

In September 2007 a statement was circulated by the blog Bolivia Rising in support of the revolutionary government of Bolivia;[2]

The democratically elected government of Bolivia's first indigenous president Evo Morales Ayma, which is heading a process of democratic change, is Washington's immediate target in Latin America today. Bolivia is in Washington's sight, not only because it is viewed as the weakest link of the growing axis of hope in the region, but because of its role as a catalyst for inspiring the struggles of indigenous peoples, regionally and internationally, for real social justice...
Now is the time for all intellectuals, union militants, solidarity activists, political parties and progressive minded individuals who believe in real justice and equality to raise their voices in defense of the Bolivian government and its people. No to US interference in Bolivia!

Honoring the life and work of John Ross


Honoring the life and work of John Ross at Cafe la Boheme San Francisco, on the fifth anniversary of his death. He wanted "Never learned to be a prisoner," to be etched on his grave. Then, in a characteristic twist, his will expressed his desire to be cremated and have his friends spread his ashes from the window a moving #14 Mission St. bus. As a first person witness/participant, I can attest this — with Nancy Charraga Corlay, Jeff Conant, Laboheme Awad, John Avalos, Phil Hutchings, Fernando Marti, Tony Ryan and Carolina Dutton.
