With seven officers dead and 60 wounded, the police opened fire on the crowd. Seven anarchist leaders were later sentenced to death. Why is their trial regarded as one of the most serious miscarriages of justice in US history? More...

When we work united to remove the greedy and miserly addicts from high positions they do not deserve, we shall see a movement toward better societies. Don't believe their smooth talk, and don't let them buy you with their flirting to support their "power"... Remember they want to be seen as gods/godesses and to make themselves "irreplaceable"...
