=== Featured article ===

The featured article is a historical look at street medic coverage of an important action in our history:

What is a street medic?

Street medic "Alpha Team." Protests against the Trans-Atlantic Business Dialogue. Cincinnati 2000.

Street medics, or action medics, are volunteers with varying degrees of medical training who attend protests and demonstrations to provide medical care such as first aid. Unlike emergency medical technicians, who work for state-sponsored institutions, street medics operate as civilians, and are not protected from arrest.

Street medic organizations also run low-income herbal health clinics, wellness clinics for migrant workers, and temporary family practice clinics to support people who are organizing for self-defense or advocating for their rights. A group of street medics founded the first health clinic to open in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.
