Council Member Avella and animal advocacy groups team up on education

LOHV-NYC | New York City Council Member Tony Avella has introduced a resolution urging the New York City Department of Education to help schools comply with New York State’s humane education law by issuing an informative memo to all public schools in the city. Enacted in 1947, New York’s humane education law requires instruction in the humane care and treatment of animals. Unfortunately, according to representatives from Humane Education Advocates Reaching Teachers (HEART) and the League of Humane Voters of New York City (LOHV-NYC), the law has not been enforced and few educators know of its existence. more...  0 Comments

Brooklyn Politics: The Changing Same

Chancellor Klein Vilifies NYC Teachers as 'Undesirable.'

Peter L. Waldman | NYC public schools are fast becoming revolving doors of 3-year internships for ambitious, well-meaning kids, often from elite colleges, who are on their way to bigger and better things: law school, business school, medical school (The New York Times, 10/2/05). This de-professionalization/peace-corp-ing of the teaching profession in New York City is demeaning, a threat to New York City teaching professionals, and an aggressive attempt to turn back the clock on ninety years of New York City teacher activism. more...  7 Comments

PHILIPPINES: Remember Martial Law!

Laban ng Masa (Struggle of the Masses) | The political climate today is similar to 1970-72, when Marcos was preparing for martial law. Unlike Marcos, however, Gloria Macapagal Arroyo (GMA) has no clear electoral mandate and she does not have firm control of the military. Unable to buy legitimacy for her illegitimate government, she is performing all sorts of legal tricks to ensure her political survival. One trick she learned from the late dictator is to monkey around with the constitution.

Hugo Chavez: Welcome Here

Modern Pitung | I had the good fortune of being one of the folks in the audience at Cooper Union when Hugo Chavez came to speak.

'This is Forever': From Inquiry to Refusal ~ A Discussion Series @ Bluestockings - FALL SChEDULE

the kids | This is Forever’ – this is for the future. What we will in the present cracks open the actually-existing to unleash potentials for the yet-to-come. What we affirm now will return to us, accumulating a set of powers and virtues into a body capable of refusing command and of claiming its own irreversible destiny. This is an inquiry into the current composition of political movements and struggle, which seeks to understand acts of refusal that are taking place on the terrain of everyday life and on the level of planetary antagonisms. This is the attempt to theorize from these positions toward new ways of life, and new ways of organizing society.

A belligerent Bush addresses the UN

By Bill Van Auken | In a speech to the opening session of the United Nations General Assembly Tuesday, US President George W. Bush delivered a remarkably belligerent warning to the peoples of the Middle East that Washington intends to continue and even widen its campaign of military aggression.
The dominant message in the speech was contained in the implicit threats made against Syria and Iran that they could soon face the same fate as Afghanistan and Iraq.
Such are the traditions of UN diplomacy—and the spinelessness of the world’s governments—that the body’s delegates politely applauded as Bush absurdly postured as the liberator of the Arab masses. His government’s policies of unprovoked aggression, military occupation and torture stand in direct violation of the UN charter and constitute war crimes for which he and other top US officials deserve to stand trial. more...  0 Comments
