QUESTION: Extradition of US Citizens to foreign countries

question / pregunta: 

Radical Reference--

I'm working on an article about the extraditions of five Americans to Canada to face charges related to a Black Bloc at the 2010 Toronto G20. Part of the article is looking into the exceptional nature of extraditions for charges that mostly consist of vandalism. I have been unable thusfar to find any information about how many Americans have been extradited to foreign countries, and for what sorts of crimes they are typically extradited. I have contacted the US Marshalls, the Dept of State, and the Bureau of Statistics to no avail. Any ideas?

Thanks

QUESTION: Collections Development Question

question / pregunta: 

Hey, I am a member of the Progressive Librarians Guild, London Ontario Student Chapter. We are developing a special library with the UWO teaching assistants union (PSAC Local 610). It is designed to be a collection of books on the history of the labour movement in Canada, the academic workplace, the student movement, and more. As a joint project, the library is intended to provide an information resource for union activists.

We are currently in the collections development and acquisition stage. Our question is two-fold: would you happen to know of any independent and labour-friendly publishers based in Canada? Would you have any suggestions for materials to strengthen this collection?

QUESTION: legal rights for media

question / pregunta: 

Dear Radical Reference,

I'm trying to figure out what the Legal Rights are of a media person when documenting activism, protest and direct actions. Can the police arrest/detain you for trying to record? What legal defense can be used in the field when engaged in this activity if someone tries to prevent it or threaten someone recording? What are the legal dangers of recording violence against citizens and/or police brutality? Is it illegal to record faces in the crowd, etc?

Particularly in the following cities/states/reservations:
Chicago, IL
Phoenix, Arizona
South Dakota (Pine Ridge and other Reservations)
Washington, DC

Thanks!

Hi there,

I'm part of a study group that studies about strategies for revolution (i.e. economic, socio-cultural, etc.) and our study group is trying to come up with articles that discuss both the theoretical and the practical aspects of combining socialistic and feministic revolution. I would appreciate any guidance on this subject.

Thank you,

Hi,

I am trying to locate a copy of a short film called "Canciones de Madrid." The film is from 1938 and features Paul Robeson. Here is the imdb link http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0029966/

QUESTION: Global Square

question / pregunta: 

Can you direct me to any fairly recent articles or other material on the Global Square project (a social media platform for coordinating relations between local Occupy, M15, Syntagma, etc. organizations)? There was a lot of stuff on its forthcoming release early next year, and then it largely went quiet. I assume it went defunct or was moved to the back burner, but I'd appreciate any accounts of exactly what happened. Thanks.

QUESTION: Radical Unionism/ Debtors Unionism

question / pregunta: 

Does anyone know of any articles written about Debtor's Unionism? What I mean by a Debtor's Union are people getting together to collectively resist paying similar or different types of debt. I'm interested because there seems to be some validity in this structure and Google is not much help on this topic. Thanks:)
