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

Today, we bring you a few brief but important logistical updates, including the burgeoning caravan list, where you can go to get registered, and the brand-new tour website!
If you are planning to head to Columbus on March 8 or Gainesville on March 14, you can now make it official by registering today on the brand-new registration page!
Wondering who’s already signed up from your city? Here’s the first wave of caravans from communities that have started organizing to fill up buses, vans and cars from their hometowns to make sure that every ally who wants to march alongside farmworkers during the tour can make it...
