Chicago Then

Excerpt from the documentary American Revolution 2. This segment showcases Black Panther Bobby Lee helping comrades in the Young Patriots (a Chicago Urban Appalachian civil rights group in similar vein to the Panthers) organize a group of working class Whites to demand for radical change in their neighborhood (which has been victimized by police brutality and economic disenfranchisement) and/or take it into their own hands. This took place in 1968 Chicago, some time after the riots that had happened after the Democratic National Convention.

Thanks to Comrade Dmitry R. for the heads-up.

Sign of the Times? (RIA Novosti Guide to Responsible Protesting)

A surprisingly helpful guide (“Responsibilities of participants of mass actions: how to peaceably express your civic stance and not come into conflict with the police”) for Russian anti-election fraud protesters — produced by RIA Novosti, a state-owned news agency! What are things coming to?
