Benefit and awareness-raising for Andy Stepanian

1087 Broadway (between Lawton and Dodworth Streets,
above Goodbye Blue Monday), Bushwick, Brooklyn

8 pm, Friday, October 19th

Rabia (Anarchopunk)
The Hungry Brothers (2-piece post-punk liberation
Hipster Holocaust (Political Hardcore Punk)
Oogle Orphanage (Jacques calls it pop)
R-tronika (Underground Latin Electronica)
DJ Suggested D (Whatever keeps your body movin'

Cost: Well, it is a benefit, so it'll cost you between
$5 and $7, sliding scale to get in the door. One less
pack of Parliaments might just save your life, anyway,
so it's a bargain all around.

Just over a year ago, Andy reported to the
Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan. And
while he sits in a prison cell in North Carolina, far
away from family and friends, we're trying to make
sure that folks in the communities he was most active
don't forget about him or his co-defendants,
collectively known as the SHAC 7.

By train, take the JMZ to Myrtle and walk down
Broadway toward Ditmars Street (away from Melrose
Street). Once you cross Lawton Street, look for the
spot on your right. Alternately, take the J to
Kosciusko and walk down Broadway, toward DeKalb Avenue
(away from Kossuth Place)-- 1087 Will be on your left.

By bike, cross over the Williamsburg Bridge and
continue to travel southeast on Broadway until you
reach 1087-- it's a snap!

Bring your appetite and thirst, because there will be
food and drinks! And there'll be plenty for the
vegans, the sober, and maybe even both, if there is
such a thing! Get there early and stay late. We'll see
you there!

Even if you can't make it to the benefit, write Andy a
letter. His address is:

Andrew Stepanian
FCI Butner Medium II
Federal Correctional Institution
Post Office Box 1500
Butner, North Carolina 27509

For more information about Andy, check out, for more about his case and his
co-defendants, go to, and for more
information about the ongoing campaigns to shut down
Huntingdon Life Sciences, try or

Pedophiles launch political party

May 31, 2006,20281,19315412-5001028,00.html

DUTCH pedophiles are launching a political party to push for a cut in the legal age for sexual relations from 16 to 12 and the legalisation of child pornography and sex with animals, sparking widespread outrage.

The Charity, Freedom and Diversity (NVD) party said on its web site it would be officially registered tomorrow, proclaiming: "We are going to shake The Hague awake!"

The party said it wanted to cut the legal age for sexual relations to 12 and eventually scrap the limit altogether.

"A ban just makes children curious," Ad van den Berg, one of the party's founders, told the Algemeen Dagblad (AD) newspaper.

"We want to make pedophilia the subject of discussion," he said, adding the subject had been a taboo since the 1996 Marc Dutroux child abuse scandal in neighbouring Belgium.

"We want to get into parliament so we have a voice. Other politicians only talk about us in a negative sense, as if we were criminals," Van den Berg said.

The Netherlands, which already has liberal policies on soft drugs, prostitution and gay marriage, was shocked by the plan.

An opinion poll published showed that 82 per cent wanted the Government to do something to stop the party, while 67 per cent said promoting pedophilia should be illegal.

"They make out as if they want more rights for children. But their position that children should be allowed sexual contact from age 12 is of course just in their own interest," anti-pedophile campaigner Ireen van Engelen told the AD daily.

Right-wing lawmaker Geert Wilders said he had asked the Government to investigate whether a party with such "sick ideas" could really be established, ANP news agency reported.

Kees van deer Staaij, a member of the Christian SGP party, also demanded action: "Pedophilia and child pornography should be taboo in every constitutional state. Breaking that will just create more victims and more serious ones."

The party wants private possession of child pornography to be allowed although it supports the ban on the trade of such materials. It also supports allowing pornography to be broadcast on daytime television, with only violent pornography limited to the late evening.

Toddlers should be given sex education and youths aged 16 and up should be allowed to appear in pornographic films and prostitute themselves. Sex with animals should be allowed although abuse of animals should remain illegal, the NVD said.

The party also said everybody should be allowed to go naked in public and promotes legalising all soft and hard drugs and free train travel for all.

My result is

You scored 42 Equality, 100 Liberty, and 7 Stability!

Liberty is so overwhelmingly important to you that you wish to eliminate anything that can interfere with it. The number one target of your outrage is �The State� (all government + bureaucracy + military) but other forces that may quash freedom (corporations or religions or even family) are also subject to your ridicule. If you have the right personality then you may participate in anarchist actions to remove all these oppressive institutions. You may advocate violent revolution but you are more likely to recognise that violence is itself the product of an oppressive establishment and reject it in favour of non-violent resistance. You think that every individual is sovereign unto themselves but you also recognise that it is natural for us to want to participate in a community. However every relationship must be totally consensual and that extends to ones relationship to any group. The preferred model for you is the community in which everyone willingly participates in decision-making and in which all economic and cultural interactions are freely established or terminated. If this is all a bit much for you then try the Libertarian on for size.
