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. 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...

image Occupy Back on Campus: UC Berkeley and UC Santa Cruz Occupations Against the Tuition Hikes 120_education-will-be-free.jpg original image ( 510x287) - by via CounterPunch
The student fee and tuition increases touched off a series of UC-system campus demonstrations, including building occupations and event takeovers. Berkeley’s Wheeler Hall is occupied this weekend and students also held down Davis’s Mrak Hall. At UCLA demonstrators camped out one night and then took over a football rally and bonfire for the upcoming UCLA-USC football game. Riverside was in the mix too. So it was no shock Friday when a midday rally at UC Santa Cruz metamorphosed into a snak...

document Stay-Away Stupidity Not on Tuesday's 11-25 Council Agenda summary_of_6.36_2014_document.pdf_140_.jpg original image ( x) - by Robert Norse
The second and final reading of the vastly expanded MC 13.08.100 (officer-initiated Stay Away Orders for a day, a week, a month, six months,and a year) won't be on tomorrow's afternoon City Council agenda. This cancerous expansion of cop and ranger powers is likely to appear, Councilmember Posner advised me by phone, on the December 9th Agenda. A more limited Stay-Away law has already impacted more than 600 people in the last year, mainly for homeless "crimes" such as sleeping, smoking, an...

text Why Austerity Kills - by Joachim Kasten
The poorest and weakest persons must pay the price for misguided political decisions. Political-economic decisions decide over the life and death of persons. The New Deal stands for an effective debt reduction and not only lower mortality and growing average incomes. The German government has been an active driver of the Greek austerity policy. James Galbraith even spoke of a collective punishment.

Students at Norman High School in Norman, Oklahoma will walk out of their classes at 9:20 A.M. on Monday, November 24th, 2014 to be greeted by hundreds of activists and supporters boldly standing with them in solidarity.
