NYU Students To Rally Against 5.3% Tuition Hike, For Economic Diversity

NYU Tuition Reform Action Coalition | In response to yet another unjustified tuition increase, the Tuition Reform Action Coalition (TRAC) at NYU is organizing a rally for students to voice their concerns and express their frustration to President Sexton and the University Administration, over the prohibitive cost of an NYU degree. The rally will be held on April 11 at 12:30 PM in Washington Square Park. On April 3, NYU announced a projected 5.3 percent undergraduate tuition hike for the 2006-2007 academic year, bringing the cost of tuition to a staggering $33,370. The annual total cost of an NYU education, including housing and fees, will reach $46,800. more...  0 Comments

NYC: Best Place for $100 oil? Maybe...

peakguy | Last week, Sustainlane ranked NYC the #1 place to live in an Oil Crisis. It goes on to highlights many of the ways that cities can be redesigned to be less dependent on automobiles for everyday transportation needs. But I have to point out a few issues not included in their analysis. While I agree the New York is probably a better place to live than the suburbs or exurbs ringing most cities, New York is a very special case for many reasons and will face it's own unique challenges. Local NYC residents may not directly feel the $100 tank of gas in their wallet at the pump, but they will feel it in many other ways. more...  0 Comments

4 Film Screenings - Cities, Labor, and Culture: Present Crises, Past Documents

CAMEL collaborative | The film and discussion series is an attempt to connect past and present struggles of the labor movement and community organizing, as a way of considering what has changed, what is still the same, and more importantly, what can we learn in terms of past successes or failures—especially questions of how we organize, how we negotiate issues of race, class, gender, different labor sectors, changes in the labor market or housing/urban development issues. The film series is about trying to remember those struggles, and hopefully, to bridge different generations of activists, and allow for discussions between labor and social justice movements and arts communities. more...  0 Comments
