PSC-CUNY | On Monday, November 13 at 4:30 PSC members are invited to join other unionists and teachers in a demonstration at the Mexican Consulate to demand an end to violent repression of teachers, strikers and other working people in Oaxaca. The escalating use of state violence against strikers and community groups began with violent repression against teachers, who went on strike last spring to win better salaries for themselves and better conditions for their students. Several Mexican teachers have been killed, and last week an American independent journalist was shot to death by forces against the community as he filmed the protest. Teachers and other academics throughout the Americas have expressed their outrage at the Mexican government. We join them in supporting fellow teachers and signaling that violent repression of striking teachers anywhere is an assault on the rights of teachers everywhere. more... 1 Comments

Vote to send a message for peace, for environmental protection, for universal health care by vote for the Green Party on Row 5.

Henk Ruyssenaars - Ex Scandinavia corresponde | She was the daughter of a pro Allende politician and wept. She'd lost count of Pinochet's gang raping her, and woke up 'corked with a bottle'. But the terror group let her live and waddle home. Kissinger who planned the rape of Chile with the CIA that same month in 1973 was awarded Nobel's Peace Prize. more... 8 Comments

James Daria Narco News | The city of Oaxaca is no longer filled with the smoke of burning buses and tear gas, but instead is burning from the inside as further polarization of the community has increased tensions amid a “peace” brought about by the forces of law and order. The city, paralyzed for the last two days, tried to return to normalcy as many business reopened. Overshadowing the this normalcy was the threat of more violence among the people due to a march convened in support of the Oaxacan state governor Ulises Ruiz Ortiz more... 4 Comments
