94 and Still Homeless

A family in poverty, Larry, Bessie and Charlie, vs. the System and Poli-tricks

The walls are covered by a collage of pictures of people who have fallen as a result of San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) violence; mostly black youth and youth of color whose lives were stolen and cut short. Set within the walls is a feeling of revolution and liberation and also a deep sadness.

The Idriss Stelley Foundation (ISF) is a safe haven as well as an underground railroad for people who have been brutalized by the SFPD.

(Wrongful) Use of Force

POOR columnist and police brutality survivor, Marlon Crump tells about his legal battle against the SFPD.

        José dándose  cuenta que la sagrada familia corría peligro realiza un
plan de escape, reuniendo sus pocas cosas de valor hacen una lista de
lo necesario, y con su esposa María  preparan el pequeño equipaje.
Cubiertos por el manto de la noche salen de su casa, deben de dejar la
cuna que José fabrico con tanto cuidado y amor para el bello niño.

A small group of poverty and indigenous scholars from POOR Magazine, bleeding internally from our own wounds of eviction, landlessness, budget genocide, racism, po-lice brutality, incarceration and violence arrived in Detroit on a hot Saturday in June to attend the US Social Forum and Allied Media Conference.

ANARCHY AND REVOLUTION R US, PART 1:  A REVIEW FOR THE REVOLUTION

By Thornton Kimes

 

We recently published what others call a “white paper” on the necessity of giving up reliance on other people, chiefly the Po’Lice, to solve problems we can and should deal with ourselves.  That is nested inside a bigger necessity:  how do we change the world from one where people are exploited, or exploiters, into one where that doesn’t happen?
