    Is folk music getting its political hackles up? It has often been the soundtrack of American protest, from the labor movement of the early 20th century through the civil rights and antiwar movements of the '50s and '60s. Now, in the midst of our longest and most controversial war since Vietnam, is history repeating itself? There are definite signs that this summer's folk-festival crowds may hear more political songs than they have in many years.

How many countless times each day do our media masters spin the same message: Unless you buy this, you are not worthy. Unless you look like this you should be ashamed. By cruising naked down the spending frenzy capitals of the world, we are saying.NO! ...a fancy new car is not a mark of...
  • Hippies, Muslims and Yanks march against Bush

    What seemed to be an odd assortment of people joined forces in Pretoria on Wednesday to express strong opposition to the United States President George Bush's visit to South Africa. About a thousand people gathered under the banner of the Anti-War Coalition to march on the US embassy around lunchtime. Hippies, men and women in traditional Muslim dress, militant toyi-toying youngsters and even some Americans turned up for the event. "Go away, we've got enough Bushes in Africa," read a poster held up by one middle-aged man. The group chanted "Who let the bombs drop - Bush, Blair, Sharon", to...
