About WarIsACrime.org In October 2012 we added the names HumansForPeace.org and HumanBeingsForPeace.org because we think such a group is needed. Veterans For Peace and Code Pink Women For Peace and various nationalities for peace are all terrific efforts. Humans For Peace is a way to include everyone. Join by making yourself a username and password on this site! In May 2010 we renamed AfterDowningStreet.org WarIsACrime.org. Please read When the World Outlawed War. Moving Target Visual art and poetry have long been cross-fertilizing forces in the Bay Area. Much of this history is well known and well-documented. Think of the wild sociality of Beat painters and poets in North Beach or the multidisciplinary scene that gathered around 80 Langton Street in the late 1970’s, to name just two moments in time. Other instances, although no less transformative in their own right, have been less documented. Here, local artist and curator Margaret Tedesco’s venue-hopping series, Moving Target, which brought performance, sound, and visual artists together with local writers, comes to mind. But perhaps because its most famous examples are now well accounted for, or because it has long been somewhat routine, such cross-pollination is often taken for granted.
Graffiti Removal Guy Comes Back to Discover Image of Himself in the Same Spot Street artist DS recently added a couple of paste-ups to a wall in London. It didn’t take too long before a graffiti removal guy removed the paste-ups. Shortly after that, DS was back with a paste up of the graffiti removal guy removing the graffiti. Gold! Art imitates removal of art! We’ve seen this before.

Reporting Back MAYDAY.US’s goal is to elect a Congress committed to fundamental reform in how campaigns are funded. Our aims in this election cycle were A) To send a signal to members of Congress that opposing reform could have real electoral consequences and supporting reform could have electoral benefits, B) To demonstrate that the issue of money in politics moves voters, and C) To learn lessons about campaigning on our issue this cycle to set ourselves. Unlike the DSCC or NRSC, MAYDAY.US’s goal was never about picking up a few seats around the edges in a short-term game. For us, winning elections is the simplest proof of viability for a longer-term strategy for fundamental reform.

Video In Mainline's newest and 12th instalment of their TRIBUTE series, Chantal Anderson follows an Icelandic teen, Úa and her wanderlust. The 14-year-old artist who's name represents the sound of a specific noise a bird makes when it has found love, speaks freely and honestly about growing up in her hometown, and how her choice of wanting to move away filters down to her creativity often being stumped by her surroundings. The familiar restraint, which impedes on a teenagers continuing quest for freedom, is illustrated through Úa’s experiences in the film.
Cell Phone Guide For US Protesters, Updated 2014 Edition With major protests in the news again, we decided it's time to update our cell phone guide for protestors. A lot has changed since we last published this report in 2011, for better and for worse. On the one hand, we've learned more about the massive volume of law enforcement requests for cell phone—ranging from location information to actual content—and widespread use of dedicated cell phone surveillance technologies. On the other hand, strong Supreme Court opinions have eliminated any ambiguity about the unconstitutionality of warrantless searches of phones incident to arrest, and a growing national consensus says location data, too, is private.
