May Day: Part II (Marx v. Washington)

May Day: Part II (Marx v. Washington)

The purpose of  last Wednesday’s events, like the marches and rallies staged on Cinco de Mayo, was to pressure elected officials in Washington D.C. into repeating the same disastrous mistakes of the past. In this case, a wholesale amnesty which would cost upwards of six trillion dollars in the coming decades. While most of...

Revisionist History

We’d like to wish our readers a blessed Easter, or a happy Passover-for those who are commemorating the Jews’ exodus from bondage in Egypt.

Occupy Wall Street (Part IV)

This will be my fourth photo essay documenting the encampment at Zuccotti Park. After embedding themselves within this section of lower Manhattan for well over a month, the protest movement known as Occupy Wall Street has developed into a small, albeit extremely controversial, community. While I was walking around the park I did notice...

D-Day. May Day Photos and Coverage: Part I

D-Day. May Day Photos and Coverage: Part I

My apologies for beginning this entry with such a startlingly vulgar image, but I thought it appropriate to visually demonstrate the level of debate I encountered from open borders anarchists during the May Day rally held at Foley Square. These two characters-who obviously eschew fasting as a form of political protest-are from the very...
