The multibillion dollar redevelopment plan for Union Station includes an ugly extra: an "Interim plan" to park idling inter-city busses at Crummel School, in Ivy City.

Reportback from Sunday AIDS march on Washington

This event was NOT the Tuesday, July 24 mobilization, but rather a mass march that kicks off the massive International AIDS Convention.

 

That convention is in the US for the first time in 23 years, thanks to the lifting of a visa ban on people testing positive for HIV. Unfortunately non-US sex workers who were supposed to participate in the convention were still denied visas.
