Tokyo Drift

The new Fast And The Furious looks even more retarded.
I didn't know there was that many gaijin in Tokyo racing cars.

Can't have a Japanese street/gang culture movie without bosozoku!
I think I saw some in the trailer!

hibernation ends : Baader Brains

There is almost no one that has been as prolific in the Bay Area hardcore punk scene as Mike Kirsch (maybe Casey Watson?).
Now, it has been at least 3 years since we have seen Mike perform.

The man went into some sort of Mission District seclusion honing his martial arts skills, supplying security for Ward Churchill / AK Press, and no doubt amplifying his musical skills and political education.

On 4April, Mike Kirsch will come out of hiding!
At 54 Tehama St. in SF, along with the infamous Jose Palofax and Jake Hockel, BAADER BRAINS will be unleashed!
They will be playing alongside Dan Africa's Bullets In & the Viking Skinz of California Love for $5.

immigrant solidarity

One of the largest protests in recent history was organized and took place all under the nose of White-English-speaking America.

Yet, the show of strength pressured legislators to re-think and change their anti-immigrant legislation.

(Of course, another one of the largest marches in recent history was in support of women and abortion rights. That was virtually ignored by the media and especially by the powers that be!)

Britney Spears at the odd junction of anti-abortion art

Anti-abortion fuck, Daniel Edwards, has created a sculpture of a pregnant Britney Spears and a bear rug.

His oh-so-obvious intention is to protest abortion.

hijacked trial

Zacarias Moussaoui is fuckin up the government's show trial of him.

He is manipulating that court better than the fuckin lawyers!

The French Do Not Quit!

France: national strike in solidarity against new labor laws!

(Did you know that strikes in solidarity with other workers are not 'permitted' under US law?)

A Day Without Latinos pt.2

In LA, over 500,000 people marched in solidarity with immigrants.

Latin American immigrants have become the target of racist militias and legislation.

If this past week wasn't a fuckin clear call for radicals to join the fight in defense of immigrants, I don't know what is.

Abu Mazen OUT! pt.2

Now, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is threatening the popular Hamas.
He intends to ignore the elected voice of Palestinians and attempt to be the sole negotiator of Palestine to the Zionists.

(I tried to find a cartoon critical of Abbas to post here for illustration. Of course, every cartoon I found was critical of Abbas... critically suggesting that he was, in fact, a radical. Which he is obviously not!)

A Day Without Latinos

In a real show of power, thousands of people across the country protested against xenophobic anti-immigrant legislation and attitudes.
In cities such as Los Angeles, Phoenix and Atlanta, there were school walkouts, marches and work stoppages.

In Phoenix, over 10,000 demonstrators marched to the office of racist Republican Sen. Jon Kyl and stopped traffic.
In Georgia, an estimated 80,000 workers did not show up at their jobs.
Milwaukee saw over 10,000 protestors.
Over 500 students walked out of class around LA while many other students were locked in to keep from joining.

More protests are planned.

Congress is considering bills that would make it a felony to be illegally in the United States and erect fences along one-third of the U.S.-Mexican border.
(The bills also impose penalties on employers of illegal workers... Of course, that would NEVER go through!)
Costa Mesa, CA is training its police officers to enforce federal immigration laws

With the rise in visibility of fascist militias like Minuteman Project and legislation such as the Patriot Act, immigrant communities are under attack.

get Abu Mazen out!

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas (aka Abu Mazen) proposed secret talks with Israel to marginalize popular Hamas.

USA & Israel did all they could to try to force a lackey dog into a position of power to negotiate away Palestinian rights.
Looks like Abbas may play that role well for them.

He already stated publicly that al Qaeda may have penetrated Palestine.
By using the boogey-man of al Qaeda, Abbas is inviting further Israeli/US intervention.

Bolivia: war of terrorism

A California man, Lestat Claudius de Orleans y Montevideo, was arrested in connection with the bombings in La Paz that killed 2 people.

"There is a war against terrorism by the government of the United States and they send us North Americans to do terrorism in Bolivia," Bolivian President Morales said.
"I urge the government to stop terrorists coming to kill innocents"

world news

Basque nationalist group ETA announced a permanent cease-fire.


ELF saboteurs were sentenced in Sacramento to federal prison.


The Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) is suspected to be responsible for an attack against foreign oil operations.
They are demanding control over their own resources and that the oil companies compensate them for polluting the environment.


The 4th World Water Forum has been taking place in Mexico.
A lot of important global politics taking shape as well as a lot of protest and streetfighting!


Greek anarchists are fuckin shit up again!

George W Bush again asserted that the US would use military force to protect Israel.

In what interest of the US is it to protect Israel??!?!

Israel receives more US aid than any other country and the US military has pledged protection.
No defense treaty has ever been signed. The US people have never voted on support for Israel.

However, the Zionist lobby in Washington is VERY strong and has deep pockets.
They have even been spying for Israel inside Washington's halls of power.
That lobby lead the charge on Iraq and is doing so against Iran.

How does any of this act in the interests of the US?
It doesn't!

Israel is a racist apartheid state that constantly violates international law.

Monday, March 20, 2006


Colorado high school history teacher, Jay Bennish, said to his class that Bush's speeches
“sounds a lot like the things that Adolf Hitler used to say. We’re the only ones who are right, everyone else is backwards and our job is to conquer the world and make sure that they all live just like we want them to.”


Right-wing 16 yr old, Sean Allen, taped that part of the lecture and presented it to the school administrators.

Allen said he was disturbed by his teacher's politics including his teaching on the founding of Israel.

Bennish was put on paid leave from Overland High School in Aurora, CO.
His students walked out in protest. (Maybe they should have taken their frustration out on good ol' Sean Allen.)
He has since been reinstated but could face disciplinary action.

Bennish and his family have received death threats.

Bennish may also be an anarchist. Anyone know for sure?

B.I.G. banned

A judge halted sales of Notorious B.I.G.'s album "Ready to Die" after a jury decided the title song used part of an Ohio Players tune without permission.

The sales ban affects the album and the title song in any form, including Internet downloads and radio play.

Arsenal no more?

I have considered myself an Arsenal FC supporter for as long as I have followed English Football.
(This was based primarily upon lyrics by the band Torches To Rome -very obscure.)

I am withdrawing my support for Arsenal...
until the club cuts ties with Israel and manager Arsene Wenger is out (or reverses his position on racism).

Wenger has come out against FIFA's crackdown on racism at matches.

Arsenal FC has a sponsorship deal to promote Israel as a tourist destination.
Join me in going HERE on how to voice our anti-racist stance against the club's support for Zionism.

ELF : operation backfire

In Eugene, OR, Joyanna Lynn Zacher, and Nathan Block have been indicted on conspiracy charges as part of the FBI's Operation Backfire case. They are now accused of being part of a an Earth Liberation Front (ELF) cell.

Salem, OR police cadets are going door to door handing out information about the ELF that says they are a "ecoterrorist organization."

keep Paris burning

Over 500,000 people across France have been protesting the French government's attempt to make it easier for French workers to be fired for no reason.

A McDonalds and The Gap have been torched.
Paris is packed full of red flags waving.
In Marseille, youths replaced City Halls' French flag with a banner reading "Anticapitalism."

Taking and re-taking Sorbonne

Clashes with police continue in France.

However, the demands are not radical but simply liberal.

A Frenchman I know was telling me how horible and unpopular this new employment law is.
He told me of France's tradition of rescinding unpopular laws following mass protests.

Indonesian pigs killed

Protesters bludgeoned three policemen and a soldier to death to demand the closure of a massive U.S.-owned gold mine in eastern Indonesia.

Outlaws Of America

I am currently reading the book OUTLAWS OF AMERICA: The Weather Underground And The Politics Of Solidarity by Dan Berger (published by AK Press).

It is probably the best book I have read on The Weather Underground (along with The Way The Wind Blew).
Outlaws Of America presents WUO within the context of the political climate it existed in; not as some aberration.

I highly suggest reading the book (especially for all you White kids!).
I plan to use this "blog" as a sort of 'book report' of highlights in Outlaws.

1969 Fortune Magazine poll:
368,000 university students considered themselves revolutionaries.
1971 Playboy Magazine poll:
1.17 million university students considered themselves revolutionaries.
1970 Gallup poll:
44% of university students felt violence on behalf of social change was justified.

angry white kid likes it too

credible threat

A Santa Cruz anti-war group made the government's watch list.
They are proud of it.

I guess it can be a sign of effectiveness...
Keep going kids! You will know when you are really effective as soon as they start beating and killing you!

egregious violation

We all ought to be keeping an eye on the Moussaoui trial.

Moussaoui is charged with conspiracy "to murder thousands of innocent people..." WHILE HE WAS ALREADY IN CUSTODY!
Now, the case was almost dismissed and is still in jeopardy because the governemtn didn't play by its own rules.

186+ men from 12+ countries. 1 prison.

We cannot ignore the hundreds of men kept in the darkest of all American dungeons; Guantanamo Bay.

Even if we do not identify with their political ideologies, they are the prisoners of Empire.
These are men captured by shadowy imperial forces across the globe.

It is the duty of any US anti-imperialist to do whatever is within reach to fight for these men and against this empire's arbitrary imprisonment of any who truly oppose it.

More information about who is in this dungeon and what goes on inside those walls is being leaked out.

Venezuela: to the Left

Venezuela unveiled a new flag and coat of arms.

The flag has a new 8th star.
Independence fighter, Simon Bolivar, had proposed the star as "the star of victory, the star of the future."
The eighth star also represents the early 19th-century eastern province of Guayana, which bordered what is today the independent country of Guyana. That province was initially loyal to Spain but then joined an independent Venezuela.

The white horse on the coat of arms is now moving to the left; a symbolic move towards socialism.
Aa bow and arrow were added to represent Venezuela's indigenous people and a machete to represent the labor of workers.

Sorbonne: spirit of 68

French prime minister, Dominique de Villepin, wants to force a measure through France's parliament making it easier to fire workers aged under 26 years.
French students protested and occupied Sorbonne University for 3 days.

Riot police stormed the building and threw out over 200 protestors.

force fed

Imagine you are swept up one day and thrown in a prison.
They never charge you with any crime but insist you belong there.
They don't tell ANYONE you are there (until after several years).
Imagine you are regularly tortured.

You might lose all hope.

Imagine all hope is lost.
Imagine your only accord is death.
You go on a hunger strike.

What if your captors won't allow you to die?
Imagine being strapped into a chair and a tube being shoved so far into your nose that it can (and will) "feed" you.
Imagine this force-feeding to cause you long lasting pains.

Red Dawn 2

If you loved the 80's propaganda piece, Red Dawn, a new movie is planned just for you;

In this script, an "axis of enemies" attack America specifically for its imperialism.
Of course, ordinary inhabitants of a quarry town thwart the invading armies' plan to destroy the USA.

Awfully convenient that the film's proposed title reflects the name of the right-wing border militia.

3 random tidbits

8,000 deserters from US military during Iraq occupation.

Israel continues to reiderate that they may kill Hamas elected officials.

Most importantly, Sway and MTV2 featured The Bay on 'My Block'!
Get hyphy! Go dumb, retarded, and ride the yellow bus! Thizz!


The US has now warned Iran of "painful consequences" if Iran does not comply to end their uranium enrichment.
All of a sudden, Russia has stopped backing Iran and seems to be backing US/Israel.

Iran has stated: "Iran’s armed forces, through their experience of war, will turn this land into a killing field for any enemy aggressors."

Iran wants to enrich uranium for domestic nuclear energy.
The US and Israel fear Iran will abtain nuclear weapons and become a threat to Israel.

death star

Right-wing Christian fascist band, xDeathstarx, has signed with Christian label Facedown Records.

xDeathstarx's interests apparently include veganism, Jesus, dissing Bay Area hardcore band Gather, & weightlifting.

Facedown's official press release states that xDeathstarx is from Redlands, CA where "a church called 'Titheme' houses a service full of hardcore kids...and C-lo gets rolled in exchange for tattoo"

xDeathstarx will also be appearing on Monster Garage soon, so make sure you fold your cap's bill ever-so-slightly up at the end.
