AltPress E-Newsletter No. 5, May, 2005

The Alternative Press Center’s "Radical Picks of the Month !"


-  ARTICLE 1. "Are your breasts bound by law ?" by Virginia Marchant

Believe it or not, some states do not protect public breastfeeding. Here’s a look at the legal complexities of a baby’s right to nurse.

Mothering (January-February 2005) http://www.findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m0838/is_128/ai_n8692163

-  ARTICLE 2. "From Kobe Bryant to Uncle Sam : why they hated Gary Webb" by Alexander Cockburn

In this article, Cockburn remembers late journalist Gary Webb, who exposed the CIA’s part in covertly bringing narcotics into the United States. The government virtually destroyed Webb’s credibility in retaliation, and in December 2004 he took his life. This article is a somber reminder of how dangerous it can be to tell the truth in the media, particularly when exposing government corruption.

Counterpunch (December 18-19, 2004) http://www.counterpunch.org/cockburn12182004.html

-  ARTICLE 3. "Arafat ; lessons in owning and shaping history" by Noam Chomsky

The ways in which the US press frames relations with Palestine, and particularly they framed them with Yasir Arafat, are telling. In this article, Chomsky details the history of US foreign policy in Israel and Palestine, and how the representations of these relationships in the press reveal US motives behind foreign policy.

Z Magazine (December 2004) http://zmagsite.zmag.org/Dec2004/chomskypr1204.html

-  ARTICLE 4. "Labor imperialism redux ? : the AFL-CIO’s foreign policy since 1995" by Kim Scipes

Throughout much of its history, the AFL-CIO has carried out a reactionary labor program around the world. It has been unequivocally established that the AFL-CIO has worked to overthrow democratically-elected governments, collaborated with dictators against progressive labor movements, and supported reactionary labor movements against progressive governments. In short, the AFL-CIO has practiced what can accurately be called "labor imperialism." The appellation "AFL-CIA" has accurately represented reality and has not been left-wing paranoia. Kim Scipes looks at the history since 1995.

Monthly Review (May 2005) http://www.monthlyreview.org/0505scipes.htm

-  ARTICLE 5. "Palestinian defiance : interview with Mustafa Barghouti" by Eric Hazan

Eric Hazan interviews Mustafa Barghouti, the Ramallah doctor and activist, general secretary of the Al Mubadara coalition, on struggles against the Israeli Occupation, from the popular movement of the first Intifada to the tactical errors of the second, via the disaster of Oslo. As Abu Mazen is levered into place, what alternatives can combat both Israeli Defense Force stranglehold and the flyblown Palestinian Authority ?

New Left Review (No. 32, March-April 2005) http://www.newleftreview.org/NLR26605.shtml

-  ARTICLE 6. "United States : trade in torture" by Stephen Grey

This is a story of private jets flying out of Germany, of kidnappings on European streets, and of torture. It has a cast of lawyers, spies, suspected terrorists, innocent bystanders and an ex-CIA boss who believes that ’human rights is a very flexible concept’. Stephen Grey reports on US practices of "extraordinary rendition."

Le Monde Diplomatique (April 2005)

-  ARTICLE 7. "Full frontal offense : taking abortion rights to the tees" by Rebecca Hyman

Rebecca Hyman touches upon the controversy surrounding the T-shirt designed by writer/activist Jennifer Baumgardner that says, simply : "I had an abortion." The shirts were first sold on Planned Parenthood’s website and are being sighted all across the country. Christian groups as well as pro-choice feminists have reacted in outrage, but many people have voiced support for the shirt as a way of putting a human face to abortion politics. Baumgardner intends the shirt to be a consciousness-raising tactic that breaks the veil of silence around abortion that can lead to discrimination, fear, and oppression.

Bitch (Spring 2005) http://www.bitchmagazine.com

-  ARTICLE 8. "You can’t do that on television ; the conspicuous absence of abortion on TV" by Rachel Fudge

There’s one thing you’re almost guaranteed not to see on TV, despite the reality of it being one of the most common medical procedures in the US : abortion. As many commentators have pointed out, as all of the old you-can’t-do-that-on-television taboos - sexual content, violence, cursing, nudity, homosexuality - have fallen away, abortion is the one hot-button issue that simply remains too hot for TV.

Clamor (May-June 2005) http://www.clamormagazine.org/issues/32/media.shtml

In addition to publishing the quarterly API, Alternative Press Center staff maintain a library of more than 300 periodical subscriptions and 1,500 books.
