text DPR Recommendations Leave Schoolchildren, Rural Communities At Risk from Pesticides - by via Californians for Pesticide Reform/MBCLC
Sacramento, CA – Today the California Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) announced new “recommended restrictions” on the use of chloropicrin, a cancer-causing pesticide used widely on California strawberries. Health, environmental and rural advocates say that DPR ignored its own scientists in developing today’s proposal, and that the recommended restrictions fall far short of protecting schoolchildren and rural residents from harmful exposures to the toxic pesticide.

On Thursday, Dec 11, an article from Counterforce was posted (on Indybay), which would lead readers to believe the group calling itself CounterForce organized and led the protest against Peter Thiel. In the article, CounterForce takes credit for the protest with phrases "we shut down" and "we found it opportune to direct the current energy", etc. This article contains disinformation.

text Fuck the Regents and Fuck Jerry Brown Too - by via Education Should Be Free!
The alternative to tuition hikes proposed by Jerry Brown, the governor of California, is to turn the UCs into 3-year degree granting institutions. He wants to fire tenured faculty and lecturers and replace them with chat rooms for the profit of millionaire Stanford graduates in Silicon Valley.

text CUCFA statement on UC’s planned tuition increases - by via Council of UC Faculty Associations
The Council of UC Faculty Associations holds Governor Jerry Brown’s slashing of public higher education responsible for UC President Napolitano’s recent proposal to budget for 5% tuition increases every year for the next 5 years.
