CUNY SOCIAL STARTS TONITE (Oct17-19)

morpho | Like the World Social Forum and last year's US Social Forum, the CUNY SF is place to become a political actor and not just be a political spectator. At Harlem University (also known as City College) we will have 2 plenaries, 65 workshops, a music event, two free meals, and will conclude on Sunday with a "people's assembly" that will focus on building coalitions and developing strategies to bring about a more democratic CUNY, NYC and US. Over 60 participating student and grassroots community organizations will be discussing everything from housing and education to the financial crisis and the election. AND ITS FREE! more...  0 Comments

While some detractors believed the FPAC is dead and some of them even did their own festival in the suburbs of Los Angeles , for two days, more than 15,000 people flocked to the festival grounds at Point Fermin in San Pedro and enjoyed the display of Filipino and Filipino American sounds and furies and affirmed that FPAC is vibrant, alive and filled with enthusiasm.
