This article was published by TalkPoverty.org. At the March for Our Lives in Washington, DC, rays of sunlight break through an unseasonably cold March, through the ordered, brutalist buildings that line Pennsylvania Avenue. Hundreds of thousands of people crowd the avenue, just as they have been crowding legislators' phone lines and email inboxes in recent weeks. On a stage strategically positioned in line with the Capitol building, 17-year-old Cameron Kasky, a Parkland shooting survivor, delivers  this proclamation : To the leaders, skeptics, and cynics who told us to sit down and stay silent, wait your turn: Welcome to the revolution. It is a powerful and peaceful one because it is of, by, and for the young people of this country. Since this movement began some people have asked me, do you think any change is going to come from this? Look around, ...

New York Politicians Seek to Make Highway Repairs Contingent on Placing Cops in Schools 23.4.2018 Truthout - All Articles
Ready to challenge injustice and spark real change? So are we. Support Truthout's mission today by making a tax-deductible donation. Three state senators have sponsored a bill that will allow New York to fast-track the repair of crumbling highway infrastructure -- on the condition that armed police be stationed in every school in New York City, public or private. Democrat Simcha Felder joined Republicans Martin J. Golden and Andrew J. Lanza to propose  Senate Bill S7867 , which has a stated purpose of changing the contracting method for construction on the Bronx-Queens Expressway. While there are many  problems with the design-build method , it has  broad support among politicians  because it saves money and expedites the repair process. Stipulating more cops in schools as part of an unrelated highway repair bill is a cynical political maneuver to pass a potentially unpopular measure. In essence, Felder, Golden and Lanza are holding necessary infrastructure repair hostage -- to be traded for the safety ...

How Black Students Helped Lead the 1968 Columbia Strike Against Militarism and Racism 50 Years Ago 23.4.2018 Truthout.com
Fifty years ago today, on April 23, 1968, hundreds of students at Columbia University in New York started a revolt on campus. They occupied five buildings, including the president's office in Low Library, then students barricaded themselves inside the buildings for days. They were protesting Columbia's ties to military research and plans to build a university gymnasium in a public park in Harlem. The protests began less than three weeks after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The 1968 Columbia uprising led to one of the largest mass arrests in New York City history -- more than 700 people arrested on April 30. It also inspired student protests across the country. Today, we spend the hour looking back at this pivotal moment. We are joined by Raymond Brown, former leader of the Student Afro-American Society; Nancy Biberman, a Barnard College student who joined the protests as a member of Students for Democratic Society; Mark Rudd, chair of the Columbia University chapter of SDS during the ...
