When Did Teacher Unions Decide to "TURN" Against Collective Bargaining Rights? - by Kathy Carroll
At a United Public Workers For Action forum, speakers exposed the systemic connections between the Gates Foundation, Walton and other privatizers with the leadership of the AFT/CFT and NEA/CTA in California.

But the federal poverty level is roughly $23,000. In Walnut Creek, the cost of living is much higher than the average for the country.

Salinas on Sunday, May 25 - by via Bruce Neuburger, Lettuce Wars
Some organizers did their best to control the message of the march – like those “pledges of non-violence” back in the day – why is it always the victims of violence, of brutal, vicious, malicious violence, that have to “prove themselves” “non-violent”. Why don’t the police, and the ruling forces that command them – why don’t they have to pledge non-violence? Why do the people who are victims of injustice have to prove they are “responsible”, while their exploiters...
