> Within the United States, the struggle for fundamental civil

> veteran human rights attorney falsely convicted of aiding
> who was targeted by the government in the effort to silence
> We have demonstrated against the dangerous anti-immigrant

> these basic human rights in the coming year.
> Radical Women has also built cross-border solidarity in

> live in the earth's greatest exporter of misery and violence, the
> greatest act of assistance we can provide to the world's people is
> achieve a socialist revolution right here in the heartland of

> lesbians/gays/bisexuals/transsexuals, youth and elders we can do
> Long live International Women's Day and the global leadership of
