November 12: Million Student March

http://studentmarch.org/

We Demand:

  1. Tuition-Free Public College
  2. Cancellation of All Student Debt
  3. A $15 Minimum Wage for All Campus Workers

The United States is the richest country in the world, yet students have to take on crippling debt in order to get a college education. We need change, and change starts in the streets when the people demand it. With students, college graduates, and workers united we can build a movement capable of winning debt-free college for all and a $15 minimum wage for all campus workers!

Roadmap to Apartheid (Trailer)

Official trailer for the upcoming movie Roadmap to Apartheid. Narrated by Alice Walker.

There are many lessons to draw from the South African experience of Apartheid relevant to conflicts all over the world. Roadmap to Apartheid explores in detail the apartheid comparison as it is used in the enduring Israel-Palestine conflict. As much an historical document of the rise and fall of apartheid, the film shows us why many Palestinians feel they are living in an apartheid system today, and why an increasing number of people around the world agree with them.
