From Confessions of an Unrepentant Maoist by Ed Felien--beginning on page 18:

"Janice Crabb, an old friend, was den mother of the Eater House. She was getting welfare, had a housing supplement and food stamps and wanted to share her largess with interesting people who might attract young people to help with the cooking and minding the children."

The big debate in local media is, “Is Uptown dead and if so, whose fault is it, and why are they not getting as much help as downtown?” OK, technically that’s three debates. But only if the answer to the first one is “yes.”

After much research though, I answer "no."

The Historic Coliseum Building at the corner of 27th and Lake Street is nearly finished! Mark your calendars to join us for the Grand Opening as part of the Soul of the Southside Festival on June 19th!

When the building opens to the public in June, visitors can look forward to drinks and food with a New Orleans flair at a new ground-floor full-service bar and restaurant by Du Nord Social Spirits and connect with many other BIPOC-owned small businesses. The Coliseum Building will also reclaim its roots as a gathering space for the community with a new event center.

The Coliseum building was one of the structures damaged in the civil unrest that occurred in 2020 in response to the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police.

A key part of the neighborhood’s healing process, the recovery of the Coliseum Building is one of the most significant redevelopment projects along the Lake Street corridor.

The goal of this project is to create generational wealth for BIPOC small business owners through the equitable redevelopment of a site that bears the scars of the community’s pain.

In partnership with three BIPOC small business owners s – Alicia Belton (Urban Design Perspectives), Janice Downing (Common Sense Consulting), and Shanelle Montana (Du Nord Social Spirits) – the historic building has been brought back to life, ensuring long-term affordability for up to 30 BIPOC and local entrepreneurs/small businesses.

Interested in leasing retail, meeting, event, or office spaces in this newly-renovated historic building? Let us know: https://bit.ly/coliseum-leasing

You can also attend a leasing preview as part of Doors Open Minneapolis May 18-19 to appreciate the historic elements of this 107-year-old structure.

Art installations pay tribute to Puerto Rico
Public Functionary will host “Blood Memory,” an exhibit showcasing five installations by Cándida González, a q***r, trans, nonbinary Puerto Rican artist from south Minneapolis.
These installations challenge traditional representations of altars, using various media such as collage, photography, audio, and everyday objects to explore grief, memory, ancestry, and the resilience of diasporic communities.

Cándida González’s photo collage “Alicia” will be on display at Public Functionary through April 13, 2024. Credit: Provided by Cándida González

Minneapolis Public Schools has reversed proposed cuts to its heritage language programs after pushback from parents and community members.

Drilling down into the county results and behind the scenes details of Tuesday’s results shows Michigan wasn’t a flash in the pan. Democratic disgust with Joe Biden’s genocide support is deep and widespread — enough to seriously threaten his reelection.

It takes a veritable Noah's Ark of volunteer jobs to pull off the iconic St. Albert's Friday fish fry.

This piece came out too late to make it into the Education column which comes out next Tuesday. This piece is written by a coalition of MPS parents.

The lack of compensation has fueled an exodus of educators from the Minneapolis district, where annual attrition rates stand at a staggering 20%.

"Return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear--"(the intro to The Lone Ranger radio show) in 1970 when crazed anti-war activists started publishing a weekly underground (later called alternative) newspaper--Hundred Flowers:

For those of you who are irretrievably nostalgic about your wasted youth and want to relive the resistance to the war in Vietnam, the music and the fog of psychedelia (when you could pull up to a traffic light and the car next to you would hand you a joint), the beginning struggle for women’s libe...

CALL TO ACTION!

Turn out for Nenookaasi at the Public Health and Safety Committee meeting
Wednesday, January 31, 1:30 PM
Minneapolis Public Service Center, Room 350
505 S 4th Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55415

Mayor Jacob Frey evicted Nenookaasi Healing Camp without notice January 30.

City Staff who consistently misrepresent unhoused relatives and the camp will be presenting an “update” to the Minneapolis City Council Public Health & Safety Committee about Nenookaasi.

We need community to show up and bear witness.

In 2020, the International Labor Organization announced that Convention No. 182 on the Worst Forms of Child Labor had been ratified by all member countries, for the first time in its history. This convention calls for the elimination of child labor that includes armed conflict, po*******hy, prostitution, and hazardous work such as cocoa harvesting.

Back in 2001, the major chocolate makers agreed to eliminate the use of child labor in their supply chains by 2005, but now over twenty years after the agreement, they have extended the deadline to 2025. Meanwhile, a federal lawsuit has been filed seeking to prohibit the importation to the United States of cocoa produced by child labor.

Hershey’s, Nestlé, and Mars must immediately stop using child labor in cocoa harvesting. It’s a disgrace and they should be ashamed.

Over twenty years ago, the major chocolate industry giants including Hershey’s, Nestlé, and Mars, promised to end the practice of using child labor to harvest cocoa beans in West Africa. These beans can be found in any of the chocolate products produced by these companies.

Promises were not enough. Now, two decades later, these companies have repeatedly failed to fulfill their commitments.

"You can't regulate child labor. You can't regulate slavery. Some things are just wrong." - American filmmaker Michael Moore

Africa is the source of about two-thirds of the world’s cocoa supply. Over 2 million African children, some as young as 10 years old, are engaged in dangerous work to harvest this cocoa. They generally work for very little or no wages, and they are expected to carry heavy loads, handle sharp machetes, and spray pesticides, against international standards.
It is immoral and irresponsible for these corporations to profit from the exploitation of children. 2025 is not soon enough; they must take clear, verifiable steps to eliminate child labor from their supply chains now, not by some future deadline they may once again choose to ignore.

Tell Hershey, Nestlé, and Mars to stop using child labor to harvest the cocoa for their products now!

Thank you for helping to create a world that honors the rights of children to be safe from harm and mistreatment.

See link in comments for Hollywood Democrats campaign. BUT these three chocolate producers are NOT the only ones guilty. Even expensive brands like Lindt, Godiva, and Ghiradelli contain "slave chocolate." Child slavery DOUBLED in the five years the big companies promised to eliminate it. Other major profiteers from slave chocolate include Cargill, Cadbury, and the industry supplier Callebaut.

I have to say, seeing "veto-proof majority" attached to a major left-wing win on the Minneapolis City Council is a major "I have been to the mountaintop" moment for me. (Me being D K Ramage, by the way.)

Plus rural wage theft, wrongful jailhouse death allegations, Open Streets gets a price tag, and congrats to HOFer Joe Mauer in today's Flyover news roundup.
