Ida C. Benedetto | As part of a national day of action, Greenpeace student activists and Reverend Billy protested outside of the Victoria's Secret on 35th st and Broadway Thursday night. Victoria's Secret sends out some million catalogues daily that are printed on paper made from clear cutting. Forest Ethics has succeded in convincing Office Depot to use recycled paper. The protest in New York is one of 350 that took place nation wide. See www.forestethics.org and www.victoriasdirtysecret.net for more information about the campaign more... 3 Comments

Stanley W. Rogouski and a report by Jed Brandt | Jed Brandt writes: "Of the core crowd, 75% were high school and college students who had walked out from city-wide high schools and Manhattan campuses. The crowd was energetic, and noticably distinct from the "usual suspects" of the New York activist left who were totally missing in action as coherent groupings. Interestingly enough, this made the crowd distinctly more lively than ritual protests peopled by the activist scene, and more intimate and human-level than the largest mass mobilizations organized by UFPJ and ANSWER. There was a noticable drop in "grumbling at the margins." [Coverage at US IMC || More Photos]

Sean Nortz | NYU Graduate Students, through GSOC/Local 2110 UAW, have authorized a strike this morning which will result in a complete stoppage of work by graduate students in response to the administration's refusal to renew their contract, which expired on August 31, 2005 (the National Labor Relations Board, composed largely of apointees from a reactionary Bush administration, determined, contrary to a 2000 ruling, that universities do not have to negotiate with graduate student unions). A contract "offered" to the union by the administration in August was "little more than a public relations stunt" which acquiesced to none of the principal demands in an acceptable fashion.

Rogouski | On November 2nd, in over 60 cities across the country, including high schools and colleges in many of these cities, The World Can’t Wait Drive Out the Bush Regime will launch what it claims is "the first national movement in American history dedicated to driving a sitting president out of office." more... 33 Comments

Lyell Davies | On November 7th at 9pm eastern-standard time (8pm central, 7pm mountain, 6pm pacific, 5pm Alaska, 4pm Hawaii) the ACM is calling on access TV centers nationwide to stop their regular programming in unison and for one minute to air “snow” on their channels. ACM executive director Anthony Riddle says this gesture will draw attention to the seriousness of current anti-access legislation in Washington and show viewers what their cable-box could look like without the programming offered by access TV. more... 0 Comments
roger m | Several smaller groups of riders originating from various locations collected into 2 main groups of 200 or so which moved separately around Manhattan. Both groups made a pass through Times Square. Smiling traffic cops waved our group through. It was great to mass through Times Square for the first time in many months.

Malo was escorted out of the court room in handcuffs and as of writing is still in custody. more... 2 CommentsPage 14 | Page 12
