With Chicago Tired of "Mayor 1%," Chuy García Could Actually Win His Runoff with Rahm Emanuel

Kari Lydersen In These Times
While money poured into the recent mayoral and aldermanic elections, voters showed that they are tired of business as usual. Chicago has been portrayed internationally as a symbol of the growing chasm between America's haves and have-nots, the 1% and the 99%, a "tale of two cities." The concept worth contemplating now is that Chuy García could actually win. It would be a story for the ages.

For Radical Freedom - Angela Davis' New Book

Shelley Walia Frontline (India)
Angela Davis' lectures take the reader towards a serious reconsideration of ideology and the state apparatus and the deplorable question of oppression on the basis of race, gender, class and sexual orientation. The wholesale criminalisation of young black men cannot be permitted and the concept of rehabilitation has to find some ground. The Meaning of Freedom articulates a bold vision of the society we need to build and the path to get there.
