Boston: Emergency Protest in Solidarity with Chilean Students
Hundreds of Chilean high school and university students have been arrested during protests against neoliberal reforms and cuts to public education throughout the country. President Sebastián Piñera has responded by declaring the protests illegal and violently repressing the students and their supporters. Piñera is the first right-wing President of Chile since the fascist dictatorship of Pinochet from 1973-1990, and the repression faced by students looks more and more like the crack-downs of 35 years ago than a real democracy.

The Rift between Teachers and Democrats Widens
The corporate media is brutally honest on rare occasions. Take for example a recent article in The New York Times Magazine, titled The Teachers’ Union’s Last Stand (05-23-10).

The title itself is surprisingly sincere, since it admits that the nation’s teachers are being targeted for attack by the Obama Administration, through his “Race to the Top” education reform. And although the article has an inherently corporate bias, it contains many revelations that have been otherwise ignored in the mainstream media.

A Call to Action for Street Medics, Clinicians, and Herbalists
daisyPB.pngA newly formed faction of the Seeds of Peace Collective, named Eastern Seeds of Peace, is committed to organizing medical infrastructure in support of the expected large-scale actions against the International Pittsburgh Coal Conference and G20 Summit in Pittsburgh in late September. This is a call to action for street medics, clinicians, herbalists, and all those interested in contributing to the medical support that is crucial to the success of the planned marches and demonstrations.

In late May, it was announced that both the G20 Summit and the International Pittsburgh Coal Conference will be hosted by the city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania during the same week (9/20-9/25) in late September. Two groups of activists, the G20 Resistance Project and the Pittsburgh Organizing Group, have taken responsibility for organizing a response to these gala events and they have been hard at work for the past two months building the general infrastructure to support an activist response to these events.
