An echo that turns itself into many voices, into a network of voices that, before the deafness of power, opts to speak to itself, knowing itself to be one and many, acknowledging itself to be equal in its desire to listen and be listened to, recognizing itself as different in the tonalities and levels of voices forming it. A network of voices that resist the war that power wages on them.
– Words of the Zapatistas at the "First Intercontinental Encuentro for Humanity and Against Neoliberalism."

Rad Ref now running Drupal 6, but still buggy

As you may have noticed, the website has been updated and re-themed. It's a lot less hideous looking now, right? However...there are a few things that still need work. If you have any problems or notice any weirdnesses, please describe them here as comments to this post or email and describe what you see. Screenshots a plus!
