Eric Mankowski, Professor of Psychology at Portland State, was in Athens at the height of student protests last fall against government austerity measures that are destroying jobs and educational opportunities. Here he talks with the Old Mole's Jan Haaken about the high level of organization and discipline shown by the protestors.
Why is it so easy to forget, or deny, that a hundred million Americans are poor or near-poor? In this commentary, Clayton Morgareidge suggests it's because our consumer culture represents us all as willing and able buyers of commodities.
In these times of renewed efforts to build communities of protest, Frann Michel looks back to a film about serious revolution -- "The Spook Who Sat By the Door."

Clayton Morgareidge hosts this edition of the Old Mole which features discussions of healthcare reform, protests in Greece, a film about black revolution, and a commentary on the invisibility of poverty.
