Carlos Ortiz de Zárate Denis | El autismo de Gregori Perelman y la abstracción de los peligros de la desertización y la inmensidad del Sahara que amenazan al piloto de Saint-Exupéry son alternativas a la visión dominante del mundo. En ambos casos se afirman otros planteamientos posibles, aunque éstos representen, respectivamente, una aceptación de los efectos del orden establecido y de una desconstrución del último. El autor de esta carta trata de identificar los rasgos del proceso que implica este proceso en la experiencia de las acciones concretas para promover el desarrollo local limpio solidario e identitario que propone a los representantes de los poderes territoriales.

Inspired by the Black Panther Party and Chicago’s Young Lords, the New York Young Lords Party launched a surprising first campaign in the summer of 1969. Called “The Garbage Offensive,” it was designed to force the New York City Sanitation Department to make more frequent pick-ups in East Harlem (often referred to as Spanish Harlem or simply “El Barrio”). The Garbage Offensive won the trust and respect of their neighbors and garnered the Young Lords Party local and national visibility. Although inspired by the Black Panther’s community-based programs, the New York Young Lords didn’t expect to be picking up garbage when they discussed forming an organization to improve living conditions in their primarily Puerto Rican neighborhood. Before launching their first campaign, however, the Young Lords went to their neighbors to find out what they most wanted to see changed. The Garbage Offensive was the fruit of this dialogue, the will of the people. Proudly inclusive of their Latino and Black neighbors, the New York Young Lords’ center of gravity was Nuyorican (Puerto Rican New Yorkers), and the independence of their homeland, Puerto Rico, a central concern.more... 3 Comments

Since I got to Oaxaca City on August 26th, the Zocalo has been filled with people selling wares and showing videos of Oaxacan resistance, but today even the Zocalo is eerily quiet...

All City NYC | City College of NY (CCNY) like Hunter College, which is the only other 4-year CUNY college where there are dorms, reserves a huge chunk of its housing for the CUNY Honors program, which which is a program that is at the forefront of creating an elite section of the university in the 4-year colleges of CUNY, through scholarships to students primarily based on standardized test scores- which are not actually a good marker of a students actual intellgence, but rather, their class and race.
