Justice for Johany! Rally and March

In March and April, long-term Harvard employee Johany Pilar reported being sexually harassed at work. In May she was threatened with "big, big problems," by a manager. In September she was told verbally and in writing she could be fired, the first discipline she received since she started at Harvard in 1998! Shortly after a picket in October, at which two of Johany's co-workers spoke up for her in public, all three were informed they are now considered "essential staff," meaning they have to work during emergencies, like during the recent hurricane, when almost everyone else gets the day off. These workers were never considered "essential" until they helped publicize Johany's treatment. This is another example of the tit-for-tat retaliation which management has sunk to ever since Johany stood up against rape culture in the workplace.

Historic Oppression of Immigrant Groups in Maine

Maine has a sad history when it comes to racism and xenophobia. In the early 1900s Maine had over 150,000 active members of the KKK, more than all but a few of the states in the South. It was Franco-Americans who bore the brunt of their attacks, but the Irish Catholics were also a target. Today it is the National Alliance and the World Church of the Creator who are attempting to carry on the historic legacy of the Klan in Maine. These racists are anti-chistrian, anti-semitic, racist, sexist, and homophobic to their core. They are just as violent as the Klan of old and are seeking to regain the numbers they once had. They provide no real answers to the problems of lack of affordable housing, shrinking job market, and sagging education system. Instead they seek to divide communities and plant seeds of hatred. We must not allow this to occur in our communities.
