I really appreciate the audio of Sandino and Jenn talking. One thing she mentioned was that she was thinking of inviting Sam Farr to talk to the students. The teach-in sounds like a great idea, but Sam Farr? He'll just bore all the students and scare them off from action.

good luck!

I also enjoyed hearing a first-hand account of the local student walk-out, but was disappointed to hear Jenn compare the police presence in Watsonville, to that of the US military presence in Fallujah!

"It was like fuckin' Fallujah, OK!" she said at one point in the interview.

I was not there yesterday for the walk-out, but demonstrators were not randomly shot at, tens of thousands of homes were not destroyed by the WPD, mothers were not torn from their children by gun-toting mercenaries. This is not an appropriate analogy, and very irresponsible reporting.
