    The Governor of the state, Jay Nixon, has declared a state of emergency and plans to mobilize the National Guard in anticipation of an imminent grand jury announcement on the Michael Brown case. Tensions are high in the area, as residents, businesses and police brace themselves for another round of rioting in the mainly black suburb of St. Louis. Their fears are well founded, as seasoned protest organizers are currently training activists to close in on and “shut down” the business district of nearby Clayton on the first business day after the grand jury goes public.

    WCCO (CBS Minnesota) ^ | July 24, 2012 | Pat Kessler
    A Minnesota congressman is calling for important changes to federal firearm laws in the wake of the movie theater massacre in Colorado. Democrat Keith Ellison says the U.S. should not just restrict assault weapons but it should also set limits on some gun clips, ammunition and body armor. “Reasonable gun controls,” Ellison said. “It’s time.” Ellison said Tuesday that you don’t need a bulletproof vest and an assault rifle to go hunting. He’s supporting laws to restrict some of the items the Colorado shooter used in his deadly rampage. .....

    Nevada Appeal ^ | August 28, 2011 | Nevada Appeal Staff Report
    Northern Nevada will host one of the largest and most innovative art and cultural events in the nation this week, yet most local residents have never experienced the weeklong Burning Man Festival. Western Nevada College offers a fascinating glimpse into the Burning Man culture of self-expression and self-reliance through a photography exhibit that portrays the art, costumes and energy of the event. “The Culture of Burning Man,” showing through Oct. 15, is made possible by the Black Rock Arts Foundation, and is curated by local artist Maria Partridge.

    FastCompany ^ | Aug 25, 2011 | BY E.B. Boyd
    It’s easy to dismiss Burning Man as nothing more than a bizarre hippie love-fest that takes place deep in the Nevada desert every year the week before Labor Day. But doing so misses the fact that it’s an amazingly successful enterprise--and, as such, has a thing or two to teach about how to inspire creative people and create a great product. Since it first began 25 years ago, Burning Man has grown larger every year (if you ignore the slight dip in recession-scarred 2009). It’s grown so much that this year, for the first time ever, the organization had to...

    TAO Communications ^ | October 11, 2001 | Self
    While doing some research on ecoterrorism, I came across TAO Communications. If you ever wanted a resource to find out where the anti-war anarchists are and what they are up to, this is the resource to use! I would advocate simply using this as your portal to adventure for FReeping and otherwise doing what it is you wish to do. If you use TAO Communications for your window on these folks, and leave it alone so that it won't try to keep you away, then you'll have a wonderful resource to use. The files for their signs are there, so ...

    BLUERIBBON COALITION ^ | September 26 | Brian Hawthorne
    "GMUG" stands for the Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre and Gunnison National Forests. Combined, they encompass some 2.9 million acres of National Forest lands in Central and Western Colorado. These three forests are home to some of the most outstanding recreational opportunity in the West. Right now, the forest's are revising their Forest Plans. These management plans provide broad guidance on what activities may or may not occur on these lands. The BlueRibbon Coalition (BRC), a national recreation advocacy group that champions recreational access and responsible use of public and private lands, is growing increasingly concerned about the influence several anti-access groups...
