Sit In At Farr's Office to Demand Cut Off The War Funds!
Protest To Bring The Troops Home Now!
On Friday, February 16th, there will be a sit-in at Representative Sam Farrâs office to demand, "Cut Off The War Funds!" Sam Farr has voted a number of times for the billions of dollars that have been used to wage war and murder hundreds of thousands in Iraq. He has promised to vote against the $93 billion emergency war appropriations bill that Bush has forwarded to congress, but Farr still consistently supports and votes for massive general appropriations for the military budget. These are votes for war.
"True CompaÃ±eras": Women's Participation in the Popular Movement of Oaxaca
An account of the important role of women in the Oaxacan social movement
Women have not only acted as participants in the ongoing popular movement in Oaxaca, but have also profoundly shaped the course of its history. They have created some of the most powerful stories and moments in the past nine months, and have helped tell them. Stories of women who have built the movement are everywhere in Oaxaca.

Free Skool Marks Two Years of Learning Outside the System
Blurring the Line Between Teachers and Students
Two years ago this spring, Free Skool Santa Cruz started as an idea between friends. It was a resuscitation of an old idea: interactive and informal learning in a non-institutional, non-hierarchical setting outside of the monetary economy. And in two years, Free Skool has offered over 260 different classes on everything from DIY-philosophy such as bike repair and knitting to more academic subjects such as local and radical history.
Santa Cruz Indymedia is a member of the Independent Media Center network with a focus on local issues and the direct impact of larger issues on our community. Santa Cruz Indymedia is not a membership organization; it is a tactic, a concept, and a movement that can be effectively utilized in many different ways.
