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.

The reality is that Governor Brown has not been wi...

Global Rally against ISIS – for Kobanê – for Humanity! NOV. 01, 2014 - by Layla
The so-called international coalition to fight the ISIS, have not helped Kurdish resistance effectively despite witnessing the ongoing genocide committed against Kobanê.

In sharp contrast, western governments have appeared more focused on stopping the epidemic at their borders than actually stemming it in west Africa. Note: the final number of 461 will eclipse the number of US, African Union, and MSF clinicians.
