Setting the Record Straight on the Peter Thiel Protest at UC Berkeley - by Berkeley Sousveillance
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. CounterForce did not organize the protest against Thiel, and did not lead the marchers into the Wheeler Co...

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. Online education may be a fine supplement to classroom learning, but only someone as clueless as Brown, who has never set foot in a classroom as an educator, could think that it might replace the type o...

Japanese Abe Government Orders Massive Police Attack On Students At Kyoto University - by respost
The Japan pro-war Abe government ordered a massive police raid against anti-war students at the public Kyoto University. The students have been fighting against the restarting of Japan's 50 nuclear plants and also against privatization. The Japanese police also raided the offices of the Japanese railway union Doro-Chiba and the left organization Zinshin. Abe promised to resign if the secrecy law is used to suppress democratic rights but apparently that does not apply to massive police raids a...

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. Raising tuition is not the solution. There is a better way: provide California students and their families high quality, affordable higher education, as defined by the California Master Plan for Higher Education. The reality is that Governor Brown has not been wi...

A National Call: Save Civilian Public Education - by The National Network Opposing the Militarization of Youth
Over the last several decades, the Pentagon, conservative forces, and corporations have been systematically working to expand their presence in the K-12 learning environment and in public universities. The combined impact of the military, conservative think tanks and foundations, and of corporatization of our public educational systems has eroded the basic democratic concept of civilian public education. It is a trend that, if allowed to continue, will weaken the primacy of civilian rule and,...

Media Uses Hazing Instead of Rape in Football Locker Room Attacks - by Football Fascism in U.S.
The scandal in Sayreville, NJ involving forced sodomy of young football players is being covered up at home by football fanatic parents and downplayed by the media. The media's term "hazing" is misapplied while ignoring the sexual nature of the crimes included forced sodomy. The cultural cover-up by football fanatics reeks of fascism on the local level while the media's downplay of words indicates nationalist fascism of football's Holy Grail.

Why Have School? - by Rich Gibson
The education agenda is a war agenda: class and empire's wars. Schools in this corporate state are capitalist training centers, illusion mills and human munition factores. The key projects in schools (regimented curricula, high stakes exams, merit pay, militarization) serve a decaying empire to create classes of students, most of them prepared for bad jobs, no jobs, or risking death killing other children of the poor on behalf of the rich in their homelands. Resistance is more than possible.
