- Not done yet. By R.V. Murphy
- Activism at work. By Michele Marchand
- Picture: Ten years ago this September, a small group of volunteers posted signs around town calling people to a rally in Pioneer Square’s Occidental Park, where a man brandishing a crowbar called people to march. March they did, right up to Fourth Avenue and Marion Street, where they forced entry into the boarded-up Pacific Hotel. The week-long occupation ended when police evicted and jailed hundreds of squatters, but a highly publicized pressure campaign against the building’s owner, Seafirst Bank, resulted in its sale. The Pacific re-opened in 1995 and now provides 106 units of housing to very low-income people.

- Media for the Masses
- Picture: On Friday, September 13, media activists descended on Freeway Park to protest the increasing powers of large media giants dominating the airwaves. The Reclaim the Media gathering was in response to a Seattle meeting of the National Association of Broadcasters, and a chance for people to learn about what these companies are doing to stifle a variety of local and community broadcasters. A media activist from the Praxis Art Group makes her feelings known outside the Convention Center.
