Civil Society Relief Is Not Enough: New Orleans Needs Public Services

mike howells | Adding to the misery of 100,000s of Katrina Survivors the Bush Administration is attempting to transform post-Katrina New Orleans into a neoliberal utopia. The plan of action of Bush and company includes winning the public to the belief that the people of New Orleans will benefit from the mass privatization of public services now underway. The success of this propaganda offensive rests heavily on overestimating the ability of civil society relief groups to meet the human needs of the city's working and middle classes. Activists involved in relief efforts need to avoid allowing their work to be used as a cover for the brutal and inhumane attack on public services. more...  0 Comments

Higher Ed. in NYC: NYU's GSOC to Drop Strike as New Year Begins

NYU Nerds For GSOC | we'll let you know that as the year begins we will not be on strike. This is primarily because the turnover the bargaining unit is so large each year (probably about a quarter of workers are replaced) that last year's strike authorization vote would no longer have legitimacy. Our pressure campaign continues, however, as we work to organize the group of brand new employees who start work over the next two weeks, and we expect exciting things to happen this semester.

‘Destroyed’ FBI Puerto Rico Files Prompt Cover-up Charges

The NewStandard | In the wake of an activist's death at the hands of FBI operatives, the agency's revelation that it may have destroyed records on the independence movement in Puerto Rico has aggravated tensions over the government's presence on the island. In a recent response to a Freedom of Information Act request, the FBI admitted that it could not locate records relating to the activities of a prominent Puerto Rican nationalist. It also stated that its field office in San Juan, Puerto Rico may have destroyed the documents when purging its files years ago.

'What is This World Coming To?': Lesbians Retaliate After Sexual Harassment

Renee Leonowicz | On August 19, 2006 at 2 a.m. seven lesbians in the West Village responded to sexual harassment, and consequently a hate crime, by attacking him. According to recent coverage that blatantly contained as little inclusion of the women’s explanation as possible, a bootlegger crudely attempted at picking up one of the women, an action he describes as gentlemanly, to which she responded that she was a lesbian. He retorted with a bitter hateful expression, one that the media has not divulged, a mordant threat to fuck them all, and consequently flicked a lit cigarette in their direction, which burned one of them. Supposedly, these events solely led at least four of the women to pummel him with belts, and, ultimately, stab him. Currently, the women, whose ages have been recorded as ranging from 14-31 and 18-31, are being held at Riker’s Island on $50,000 bail/$150,000 bond on charges of assault, gang assault, attempted murder, and a hate crime. more...  37 Comments

FREE FILM SCREENINGS: ATENCO and OAXACA, August 24th & 31st, back to back Thursdays, at 8PM

ren, www.times-up.org | GET PLUGGED IN!

This video analyzes the events in San Salvador Atenco during the
first days of May, 2006 and denounces the violation of the civilian
population's human rights by state and federal police forces. The
documentary deconstructs the mass media's operating methods, which were
responsible for creating a climate of fear and an information blockade
on the events in San Salvador Atenco, in the midst of an especially
delicate situation: the 2006 process of presidential succession in Mexico.
