Warren Andersen of Union Carbide: Licensed to Kill

David Roknich |
"I'm going to stay out to expose the inequality - corporate executives don't go to jail for high crimes and little citizens go to jail for misdemeanors."

Diane Wilson isn't responsible for the painful deaths of 8000 people in a flaming holocaust like the one that has brought down an indictment on Warren Andersen of Union Carbide. Disasters of the sort created by Andersen's negligence in Bhopal India are beginning to occur up and down the coast of Texas, thanks to a wink and a nod from their well-funded congressional delegation led by Tom Delay. more...  0 Comments

NYU Grad Student Union Authorizes Strike

Sean Nortz | NYU Graduate Students, through GSOC/Local 2110 UAW, have authorized a strike this morning which will result in a complete stoppage of work by graduate students in response to the administration's refusal to renew their contract, which expired on August 31, 2005 (the National Labor Relations Board, composed largely of apointees from a reactionary Bush administration, determined, contrary to a 2000 ruling, that universities do not have to negotiate with graduate student unions). A contract "offered" to the union by the administration in August was "little more than a public relations stunt" which acquiesced to none of the principal demands in an acceptable fashion.

The graduate students and their union have the overwhelming support of undergraduate students, faculty, and the rest of the NYU community. The administration must now show what its priorities are through its response to the strike.

We Can Win; Now When We Take a Stand for Human Rights It Means More. .

Eric LeCompte | With legislation on the verge of passing to close the "School of the Assassins", the time has come this November to stand up against violence, torture, and war! This Nov. 18-20 we ask that all those who stand for justice and democracy join us at the gates of The U.S. Army School of the Americas (SOA/WHINSEC), in Fort Benning, Georgia. In November of 1989, 14-yr old Cecilia Ramos, her mother, and 6 Jesuit Priests were murdered by a Salvadoran Death Squad attempting to instill fear in anyone who raised their voice against El Salvador's military. This November - as the 15th anniversary of the SOA Watch movement and support for legislation HR 1217 on the verge of closing the school - we need YOU, your family and friends, to join us at the gates in Fort Benning to end the violence and demand justice and freedom. more...  0 Comments
