Well over a year after Pennsylvania Governor Edward G. Rendell lifted the moratorium he imposed on the PA Board of Probation and Parole in conjunction with the Department of Corrections (DOC) to bring to a complete halt all prisoner releases, parole eligible prisoners at SCI Greene, located in southwestern Pennsylvania, who fall under the classification of violent offenders are still feeling the ramifications of Governor Rendell’s actions. Sadly, they have become pawns in the quest for continued prison expansion here in PA.

The Zapatistas are organizing a peaceful and civil movement to overthrow
by Kate Zaidan and Nava Et Shalom
Like any international solidarity organizing, Palestine solidarity activists face the challenge of making our struggle relevant to those who are not personally touched by the occupation. Often, we stop at intellectual arguments: US imperialism plunders the globe at the expense of our communities. Slogans and signs that read "Stop the War at Home and the War Abroad" frequent anti-war rallies.
