This space is dedicated to the proposition that we need to know the history of the struggles on the left and of earlier progressive movements here and world-wide. If we can learn from the mistakes made in the past (as well as what went right) we can move forward in the future to create a more just and equitable society. We will be reviewing books, CDs, and movies we believe everyone needs to read, hear and look at as well as making commentary from time to time. Greg Green, site manager

In Boston-Sat vigil against war on Syria and Yemen
Next Saturday, March 11, the Park Street vigil on the Boston Common, from 1 to 2pm, will be a speak-out to stop the wars on Syria & Yemen. This is in response to International Hands Off Syria Coalition's call for international days of action against war and Islamophobia during the week of March 11-19.
The Pentagon is considering sending more U.S. ground forces to Syria. To justify this military escalation, the demonization of the Syrian Government has been intensified though a new wave of misleading propaganda. The most recent salvo is a sensational yet unfounded report from Amnesty International, which has been broadcast by media outlets around the world.
In Yemen, the US has long been supporting the Saudi war, which is not only a war against the Houthi movement, but an atrocious war of hunger and mayhem against the population and economy of Yemen
