for anyone in the "new england" area [May. 28th, 2006|03:11 am]
any volunteer drivers and carpoolers?

hey everybody,

this message might be off topic but it can help a lot of people, so i'm asking that it's kept on the journal. understandable if it needs to be edited out and all, but i urge you to give a quick read before making a decision.

i'm going to build homes with habitat for humanity in the new orleans area. there are groups of activists going down in june for 5-day blocks. (i was thinking about staying 5-15 days). if anyone is interested in going please let me know - the bigger the group, the lesser the expenses, the better job done. collaboration would be awesome, especially if someone has a car - gas would be much less expensive than a flight+rental/cabs. this is an independent volunteering/activism project available for anyone able to come help out, but time and space is limited so please get back to me asap if it sounds like something you'd be interested in. habitat for humanity asks for a $20/night donations, which aren't necessary but encouraged (I won't be paying the maximum .. poor college student). So anyway, if you want to come on the flight, or have a car, and want to come down with a group to do something progressive for our {sick} society - get back to me! or e-mail me at nbose@ic.sunysb.edu.

(additional benefits are a great tan, good workout, new friends, and a new orleans vacation ;) the u.s. government wanted to cut grants to organizers building for katrina recovery - programs for which are difficult and time-consuming to get into.. so independent volunteering is really needed.)

i do run an activist organization called the social justice alliance at stony brook university.. just so you don't think i'm a weirdo looking to scam a hot date..

WHO WANTS THIS COMMUNITY [May. 26th, 2006|05:00 pm]

Hey all! Im leaving LJ so im divying up my communities. I want to give them to people who ACTUALLY use LJ and will continue on with it and not just let it sit to die.

Communiuties up for grabs :


reply to this message. It will be screened, no one will see it. Just tell me who you are and what/if other communities you run. Lemme know how much time you can spend on it too. Im not being an ass, The reason a few of these were started was because older communities owners disappeared and everything fell apart. I want to see these continue.

Im giving the following communities to the moderators that currently run them (Just reply and let me know you want it!)
if the current moderators do not want these, they will be up for grabs too.

Bye guys :)>

Activist Pen-pals-

So here’s the deal. Radical/progressive activist are scarce in the south. We have to fight a lifetime of conservative tradition in our families, communities, schools and government. Growing up we feel isolated because there are no progressive or radical communities past the opening of a ‘Hot Topic’ in the one mall in town (if yur lucky) So…after you make it through high school you either get the hell out of the south and go for ‘blue state paradise’, or you stay.
If you stay and choose to go the activist route and try and create a community of radical individuals pushing for social change…you face high school isolation/ridicule all over again. We are spread thin throughout the south and sometimes are the only people organizing around queer rights, reproductive rights, anti-racism etc. etc. etc.
Why should you care?
Well. As a fellow activist you obviously understand that when ONE is oppressed we are ALL oppressed. This goes for geographical location! I’m not asking you to pack yur bags and head south (though if yur interested let me know) I’m simply saying,
“Hey us southern activist need some lovin”
So why not send some lovin via: mix tapes, art, letters, words of inspiration, crafts, baked goodies etc. This is a small way to show a southern activist that you care and that their efforts are being acknowledged and they are not alone.
Here’s the deal. Don’t wait for a nice present back, again southern activist have A LOT on their plate. If some have the time they will send you goodies in return, but your satisfaction should be a new friend and fellow activist now has a rad tape to jam to when they are feeling down cause only 5 people came to their workers rights meeting, or they smile when looking at a homemade postcard and know that there are others who fight homophobia/hetrosexism.
So this is what I’m asking of you!
Send me your email address and what type of activism you primarily work on (if you have multiple include all) This way I can try and connect you with someone working on similar issues and hey you could offer some advice/resources!
I will then send you the name and mailing address of someone who is fighting hard for social change in the south.

Looks like Coke has lost the battle to Pepsi for Quizno's food chain.

I'm just happy that Coke won't be sold in another restaurant.
