socialismartnature: Statement of Principles We are Occupy Harvard. We want a university for the 99%, not a corporation for the 1%. We are here in solidarity with the Occupy movement to protest the corporatization of higher education, epitomized by Harvard University. We see injustice in the 180:1 ratio between the compensation of Harvard’s highest-paid employee—the head of internal...
‘Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori.’
I’ve had one of those productive-in-a-not-really-all-that-productive-and-pretty-selfish-really kind of nights. I consolidated all of my music files and then switched my media player from iTunes to foobar2000, which feels great, except I am now at the beginning of a really long and arduous ID3 tagging clean-up mission, which, with about 300 GB of music, appears incredibly daunting right...

Lilly World, Local Produce and Orange stages gone. No “D” barricade for Blue stage (blatant disregard for people’s safety or a projection on the expected turnout?)

cultureofresistance: naturalanomaly: wespeakfortheearth: I fully support this. Please, if any of you are for a better environment do give this movement a moment of your time. I feel like this movement is too radical at the moment to get much public attention. At the moment. There will definitely be a point where this resistance gains an incredibly large following, because fuck the 1% that...

Police smashed down doors at a...
