In a direct act of protest against nuclear weapons on the morning of 20 June, Carl Kabat, a Roman Catholic Priest from St. Louis, and Gregory Boertje-Obed and Michael Walli, two Veterans, went to a Minuteman III silo in North Dakota and sabotaged the silo with hammers. They also put paint and their own blood on the missile lid.

Local radio DJ advocates hitting bikes with vehicles

During morning rush hour 6/2, a DJ for Bernie Miklasz Show on local "sports" station, AM 1380, said the proper place for bicycles is underneath cars. This comes barely 1year after local radio DJs suspended for prompting listeners to forceably disarm cops. Unclear whether the DJ advocating violence against bicyclists could receive similar treatment. For context, 12% of all roadway injuries in Missouri are on bike.
Update: Bernie issues apology for guest, and legal threat.

Revised Newswire Posting Policy

We have recently adopted a new policy that we will be testing in the next several weeks.

Food not Bombs is currently active in St. Louis again and is serving in Lucas Park on Fridays at noon.

Thousands Remember Martin Luther King's Legacy in St. Louis

Several hundred people gathered Monday morning on January 16th in front of the Old Courthouse in downtown St. Louis to honor Dr. King's life and work for racial and economic justice. The diverse crowd not only wished to remember King's work but also promote the fact that much of what he fought for still must be resolved in this racially and economically divided military state.

Earlier in the week, several hundred people attended an event at Harris Stowe State University to hear Civil Rights Activist Andrew Young. Multi-cultural dancers, musicians, and singers were also included in the ceremony.

CAMP Victorious!

The Communities Arts and Media Project (CAMP) won a months-long struggle to operate a community center in their location at 3022 Cherokee when the St. Louis Board of Adjustment issued an occupancy permit at a hearing on December 14. Though there are still some issues to be resolved--such as the occupancy limit for the first floor--the CAMP community will open the first-floor community space in Spring 2006.
