MLK: Race, Identity, & Image

In honor of yesterday’s Martin Luther King Day we present MLK’s appearance on NBC’s Meet the Press in 1965. School is in session as one lone preacher takes a mob of educated journalists and holds a clinic. Every one of the questions, including the questions of communist affiliation, is deflected with something other than point A to point B logic. ... Read More »

The Original Occupation

The Aboriginal or indigenous American was the first occupant of this country. As a child my parents did not insult my intelligence. They told me that the pilgrims had stolen the natives land. I dreamed about how to correct this injustice. There are no easy answers. Reservations have serious cross generational problems that don’t have any solutions. After I finished ... Read More »

San Diego Occupiers Stranded in Texas by Greyhound Anti-Occupy Bus Driver

13 occupiers from San Diego en route to Washington D.C. to attend Occupy Congress were left stranded in Amarillo, Texas. The bus driver, Donald Ainsworth, locked the occupiers in the bus and called the police to have them removed because of his anti-occupy beliefs.

Who Doesn’t Love Free Music?

One of my favorite things about the Occupy Movement so far has been seeing individual and group creativity seemingly rise to levels I never thought I would see. Between photos, videos, music, protest signs, and everything in between I get to somehow experience new types of art every single day. Wisconsin has been occupying the Madison Capitol since before occupations ... Read More »

Meditation and New Ways to Combat PTSD

When a person endures a psychological trauma such as kidnapping, a traumatic “act of God,” a violent act or has to commit a violent act, is raped, tortured, or has to go to war a kind of hyper awareness emerges. Soldiers returning from war find themselves unable to cope with constantly reliving events where they failed to save one of ... Read More »

Welcome Back

We can only hope when we reach 2013 and another article appears on SFTC (much like this one) about the bounty of enrichment we will experience in that year, it will be enshrined with victory for the Occupy Movement. Occupy is just one of our causes but our area of focus through this political climate. As realists we understand that ... Read More »

Motivation Monday VII

This MM is a hail to ingenuity. While protesters here and abroad deal with the constant threat of police incursion and violence one man found a way to take action. It’s a play straight from the US military playbook. Unmanned drones. In this case, the drone is a RC Helicopter strapped with a camera. But the video captures everything from ... Read More »

An Open Letter to the Winter Patriot

Mitch Green’s open letter appeared New Economic Perspectives on November 21st of last year. We believe it to be as true now as it was then. There are elements of Occupy that seem to be slowing down but the sluggish winter weather is only a test of fortitude. On the other end it produces hardened warrior activists that will prosper through ... Read More »

Be Careful How You Invest Your Loyalty

  Almost a decade ago the Chicago Tribune published an article in their newspaper written by Mary Schmich. Her views on corporations ring true even more so today because it shows these issues have not been addressed by our elected officials. Ten years ago, before corporations were people, we had Enron, Tyco, and WorldCom. We now have Bank of America, ... Read More »
