The just emergent January/February 2003 issue  [#102] of the always
excellent socialist journal, Against the Current -- sponsored by
Solidarity -- contains its usual range of fine pieces.  There is an
extensive, special focus on Reparations & Liberation with these component
articles:

In their statement opening the Reparations section, the ATC editors
indicate:

"As a diverse and vibrant movement, the reparations struggle includes a
variety of views on how payment should be made -- to institutions or
individuals -- for what purpose, and on who is responsible.  While we are in
solidarity with this movement, our purpose here is to present some of this
complexity and the historical context rather than to express an editorial
opinion on detailed issues under debate."

In our Gray Hole, the ghosts often dance in the junipers and sage, on the
game trails, in the tributary canyons with the thick red maples, and on the
high windy ridges -- and they dance from within the very essence of our own
inner being. They do this especially when the bright night moon shines down
on the clean white snow that covers the valley and its surroundings.  Then
it is as bright as day -- but in an always soft and mysterious and
remembering way. [Hunterbear]
