The latest edition of The Indypendent is out! This
week’s paper focuses on Critical Mass.
Nine months of police repression and hundreds of
wrongful arrests have cut participation in the monthly
bike event, but organizers remain undeterred. The
paper also features stories on proposed changes to
Washington Square Park, more on notorious slumlord Jay
Wartski, a review of the National Media Reform
Conference in St. Louis and the questionable
relationship between health food groups and junk food
companies. Moving overseas, we have coverage of
Bolivia’s struggle to control its vast natural
resources and commentary from A. K. Gupta on Bush’s
botched crusade. In our culture section, we review
African organic techno, Sleater-Kinney’s new album and
Queens filmmaker Mario Pinzon’s latest release.
