Well, it’s finally here: the September issue of Raging Chicken Press! As many readers already know, this month’s edition was delayed a few days because of the start of the school year and the fact that my wife and I welcomed our second child into our family in August. The September issue is the first part of our two-part “Back to School” series. While the September issue took a little longer, I think you’ll dig it! We’d also like to welcome The David and Goliath Project as an affiliate blog!
This issue features more multimedia contributions, several on-the-ground reports from new contributors, and features and important Call to Action to Occupy Wall Street on September 17th – that’s right, this coming weekend! Here’s a look at what you’ll find in this issue:
- “Labor’s Day in Troubled Times,” by Glenn Richardson
- “Will Occupying Wall Street be America’s Tahir Square Moment?,” by Dustin Slaughter
- “The Case of the Missing Youth: A View of Young American Inaction from the Inside,” by Roger West
- “Justice at Hershey’s: International Students Say NO to PA Sweatshop,” by Kevin Mahoney
