4:30 Monday: Support Workers in Oaxaca, Mexico

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

Nobel's Explosive Peace Prize

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

Camera his weapon vs. injustice, Daily News Column

by Juan Gonzalez | Camera his weapon vs. injustice

When the bullets started to fly, New York photojournalist Bradley Will was clutching a camera, doing what he loved most - filming a group of downtrodden people fighting for respect in some forgotten corner of our world.
This was last Friday, on a narrow street on the outskirts of Oaxaca, Mexico, where Will, 36, a longtime member of New York's radical IndyMedia Center, had gone in early October to document an amazing story.

It is one our own national media somehow managed to ignore for five long months.
