Vincent Fischer | It’s been a week since I protested the execution of Brian Steckel by the State of Delaware. I worry, and greatly, that my words will neither do justice to, nor adequately convey, the horror of that night, one which will forever be seared into my memory. Paradoxically, because it is a traumatic memory, I worry too that I will not be able to access all I heard and saw that cold moonless evening in a provincial backwater. more... 0 Comments
Diane Krauthamer | Today’s campus-wide picket marked the second day of a graduate student worker strike at New York University—a strike that will continue until the school administration begins negotiating with the graduate employees union. more... 3 Comments
Ivan Boothe | Had French society allowed for nonviolent social movements to form and flourish, violence would have seemed politically inefficient. Because immigrants and the working-class are so effectively shut out of French society, they have no other way to effect change than to violently demand it. more... 1 Comments

Fred Goldstein | The working class leadership in France has been weak on this question and downright reactionary at times. Right now they need to stop retreating. They must not confine themselves to mere protests against reactionary measures of repression. They need to demand that all the cops be withdrawn, that the emergency decrees be revoked. They need to come out for the justified rebellion.
Doug Ireland | As someone who lived in France for nearly a decade, and who has visited those suburban ghettos, where the violence started, on reporting trips any number of times, I have not been surprised by this tsunami of inchoate youth rebellion that is engulfing France.
Juan Cole | A lot of the persons living in the urban outer cities (a better translation of cite than "suburb") are from subsaharan Africa. And there are lots of Eastern European immigrants. The riots were sparked by the deaths of African youths, not Muslims. Singling out the persons of Muslim heritage is just a form of bigotry. Moreover, French youth of European heritage rioted quite extensively in 1968. As they had in 1789. Rioting in the streets is not a foreign custom. It has a French genealogy and context. more... 1 Comments

Diane Krauthamer | More than 1,000 people rallied outside of New York University all day today in support of the graduate student workers, who plan on continuing their strike and thereby disrupting the daily functioning of the school itself until a simple demand is met— to be able to work under a contract.

KAZEMBE BALAGUN | For the mainstream media, Parks is simply “the bus lady” who refused to give up her seat because she was tired from a long day’s work. This version of history robs the complexity of Parks’ life and the civil rights movement as a whole. more... 0 Comments

FIERCE! | Hey everyone, check out the new resident proposal on the table to blockade the entrance to Christopher St. once the Pier closes at 1am. The proposal is looking to force LGBT youth to walk up or down the West Side Highway (similar to corralling cattle) to 14th St. or to Houston St. to get to the nearest train. This is because residents dont want LGBT youth walking through the residential area of the West Village once the Pier closes. more... 11 Comments
