Field correspondant Tom LaPorte brings us a 23 minute interview he held with anarchist, guerrilla clown, and stand-up revolutionary Abbie Hoffman back in 1969 during the Chicago 7 Conspiracy Trials.

We split the interview into 5 pieces, give listen and then comment upon each section. Topics range from the binding of Bobby Seale, the trial of the press, the meaninglessness of reform, and the future of judicial law in America.

Almost 40 years after the interview, Hoffman’s words still buzz with relevance and hum with an electrical current vital to today’s political climate.

Who will be the conduit for these words tomorrow?

RADIO SHOW
http://ia301227.us.archive.org/3/items/dn2006-0620/dn2006-0620-1_64kb.mp3

Last night residents’ lawyers heard that the HUD attempt to start demolition scheduled for November 19, 2007 has been postponed until after the judge makes a decision on the requests of residents for an injunction. There is presently a hearing scheduled for federal court on 9am November 28, 2007. So, for the present, demolition has been postponed until after that hearing, although the government is asking the judge to hold the hearing sooner. This may change on very short notice. We will notify everyone of any changes.

On September 4 members of the Pittsburgh Organizing Group (POG) will start a month long fast against war and military recruitment at the doors of the Armed Forces Career Center (military recruiting station) on Forbes Ave. Throughout the fast, participants and supporters will remain camped out in front of the station to put a spotlight on one of the most grotesque symbols of militarism in our community. We invite our friends and supporters to join us in our campout and, as your health situation and work schedules allow, join us for all or part of the fast.

from The Guardian (UK):

The US has lost track of about 190,000 weapons issued to Iraqi security forces since the 2003 invasion, some of which will have ended up in the hands of insurgents, according to an official report published in Washington. Among the missing items are AK-47 rifles, pistols, body armour and helmets.

The disclosure adds to the picture of the chaotic and clumsy administration of Iraq that has emerged over the last four years.The report, by the government accountability office, which sent its report to Congress last week, found a 30% gap between the number of weapons issued to Iraqi forces and records held by US forces in Iraq. No one in the Bush administration knows where the weapons are now.
