ASSEMBLE FOR RIGHTS NYC | PACK THE NYPD HEARING ON NOVEMER 27, 2006 TO TELL THE NYPD TO HONOR THE US CONSTITUTION ON FREE ASSEMBLY. ATTEMPTING TO STOP BIKE RIDES AND GROUP ASSEMBLY WITH NEW REGULATION TO BE IN PLACE 30 DAYS AFTER PUBLIC HEARING.
Tristyn H. | On the weekend of November 11th and 12th activists from all over the country converged on New York City to honor the life and accomplishments of slain journalist, anarchist, and freedom fighter Brad Will. I arrived in the city on Friday morning, a day early, to meet with friends and settle in before what I presumed was going to be an emotional few days. Manhattan hustled and bustled, completely ignorant to the revolution in Oaxaca. Millions of people caught up in their lives, too concerned with where their next meal will come from or which Prada bag to buy to be knowledgeable on foreign or even domestic current events. After all, the Democrats won. So there is no more bad in the world, right? more... 0 Comments

Amy Wolf | Participants say that without the community's knowledge, a deal was quietly hatched to take a wrecking ball to the historic Julia Richman Education Complex (JREC) on Manhattan's upper east side. Four high schools, a school for autistic children, and an elementary school for children whose parents work in the area are affected by Hunter plans to erect a towering science facility, adding a potential 15,000 people to this residential neighborhood. more... 0 Comments
Ad Hoc Coalition 4 Justice in the Middle East | On Saturday, November 11th, the Ad-Hoc Coalition for Justice in the Middle East and DRUM (Desis Rising Up & Moving) held a workshop in Manhattan highlighting the parallels between the wall on the US-Mexico border and the Apartheid Wall in Palestine. The workshop was immediately followed by a spirited march through Manhattan with protesters carrying a long black cloth “wall” as they snaked through the crowded New York City streets.
A.K. Gupta | The media are our collective eyes. When and how they cover an event can change history. Mass uprisings in Latin America, full of life, creativity and conflict, offer all the elements of a compelling story but receive minimal attention from the corporate press. It is into these events that North Americans like Brad interject themselves, as reporters, witnesses and solidarity activists. They don’t have a billion-dollar corporation behind them, but many still produce stellar reporting. more... 3 Comments
OAXACA SOLIDARITY ACTION | Please if you can send this out to everyone you know and hopefully come down!
Nancy Romer | Teachers in Oaxaca as teachers everywhere are civic and political activists who participate effectively in their communities; particularly in Oaxaca, their relationships to their communities are part of their everyday lives. The dynamic coalition of parents, teachers, and students is a model for all of us who want to see the schools be transformed into institutions that serve the needs of the people, especially the poor, instead of creating testing factories that sort people for the corporate economy. It also presents a model of how unions can engage in societal demands greater than the narrow confines of their contracts. more... 1 Comments

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
