Gods & Radicals, a new site for Pagan anti-capitalists launched with the following mission statement: "To help re-awaken what many see as an integral aspect of Modern Paganism – its opposition to Capitalist exploitation of the earth and all its inhabitants."

Be advised that I will have no photos to illustrate anything that goes on inside the prison walls unless I happen to come across them on the Web.Needless to say, we volunteers are not permitted to bring cameras inside.
