Got thoughts on Occupy?
The Applied Research Center (publisher of Colorlines) is conducting focus groups with young organizers (between 18 to 30 years of age) to understand what motivates you to participate in the Occupy movement.
The focus group will run an hour and a half, from 3:00 to 4:30pm, this Thursday, 3/8 at The Holdout, 2313 San Pablo and 19th St., Oakland.
Participants will receive a $25 gift certificate from Arizmendi Pizza or AK Press (both are worker-owned coops!) for their time.

From the Red Scare of 1919-1920 to the McCarthy period of the 1950′s to the COINTELPRO (Counter Intelligence Program) era of the 1960′s, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has operated primarily as America’s political police. With the recent alegations that long time activist and former Black Panther member Richard Ioki was an FBI informant it is imperative that militants become familiar with the History of COINTELPRO.”
