    Community demands a meeting with Mayor Emanuel over concerns about closings and turnarounds of neighborhood schools January 4, 2011- Parents and community leaders from North Kenwood, Oakland, and the Greater Bronzeville community along with activists from Kenwood Oakland Community Organization, Chicago Teachers Union, Action Now, Albany Park Neighborhood Council, and Stand Up Chicago are participating in a sit-in outside the Mayor’s office demanding a meeting with the mayor to discuss the plan to turnaround, close, and consolidate schools in the mid-south region. Some of the demonstrators traveled to successful school districts around the country over a two-year period and met with education leaders to develop the Bronzeville Global Achievers Village School Improvement Plan. “The Board of Education and Mayor Emanuel have yet to respond to parents’ efforts to garner support and implement their plan and save their schools,” said Jitu Brown, education organizer for KOCO. “Instead of respecting the very community that helped put him in office, he has gone deaf and unyielding in his mission to turn our schools over to politically connected school operators without a proven record of school success. We want to tell the mayor that the honeymoon is over. Our community will not just sit back and take it. We are not his subjects to be done with as he wishes. Our children deserve equal access to high quality schools now.” This story is developing. Check for updates at ctunet.com and substancenews.net.

    • Hello UK Consulate? Anybody?


      from sean bedlam Added 29 0 0

      Wikileaks Australian Citizens Alliance fronted the UK Consulate, Melbourne to grill them about the extraordinary treatment of Julian Assange. They wouldn't talk, so things got interesting. This was not a planned event, we didn't go there expecting to Occupy, but we did so as our small part of a global movement. Worth watching for clues on how to talk to cops in a civil disobedience situation, too. http://www.theage.com.au/national/us-in-pursuit-of-assange-cables-reveal-20120817-24e8u.html

                    Many Yeses, One No is a remarkable look back at the Global Justice Movement. As the critiques of "free trade" were just being formulated, alternative media producers were there to expose the realities that were the true face of corporate globalization. They were there in Seattle in November of 1999 to bear witness to what was perhaps the most successful week of action against destructive neoliberal economic policies. This video is a series of excerpts.
