November 27 potluck and movie event: A Greener Christmas

November 17, 2011

Are you concerned about how to make the Christmas season more meaningful and less stressful? Are you looking for ideas on how to reduce the wasteful consumption that has come to typify the holidays?

A day in the life of an Occupy Wall St. Participant

November 11, 2011

Hags to me and asked me to forward this to Brendan but after watching it I think it deserves to be posted. It’s well worth watching. (Warning, explicit language at the end. Margaret, cover your ears, I don’t want your delicate conservative ears.) httpv://!

A New Cambridge Paper
