Fulfilling Our Oath

Why the flag flies over the Occupy Wall Street movement

It is both telling and alarming that in response to the Occupy Wall Street movements sweeping the country, officials are deploying police. The officers leave the station not to protect and serve the community, but to intimidate Americans asserting their constitutional rights to peaceful assembly and free speech.

Dide, There's Free Shit at Maple Street

Community Clothing Swap

Ever been to a clothing swap? It's a helluva good time. People just bring in sacks and bins of old clothing and everyone exchanges to their heart's content. Things we've heard of people scoring from clothing swaps: Jimmy Choo heels, Valentino bags, nice leather gear, brand new makeup, vintage costumes, brand new clothes and so many more unexpected treasures. While this Community Clothing Swap doesn't guarantee high-end apparel for the taking, there is a great variety to sort through. Maple Street Dance Space hosts the swap on Sunday, Jan. 27 from 5:15 to 7:15pm and accepts donations throughout the evening. All ages are welcome to bring their clean women's, men's and kids' clothing and accessories as well as snacks or beverages to share. Not only do you get to bring a home a bag or two of newfound accouterments, but everything left over doesn't go to waste. The leftover garments go to Vision Zero Albuquerque and Thrift-A-Lot, in support of Transgender Resource Center.
