Victory for Student Speech Rights: Northeastern SJP To Be Reinstated
Northeastern University Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) has announced that the University is backing off of its decision to suspend the student organization until January 2015. “This is a victory for freedom of expression on campus,” said SJP leader Tori Porell who thanked SJP supporters. “Weeks of protests, picket lines, petitions, phone calls, and emails appear to have paid off and SJP will be operational next semester,” Porell said. “This is also a victory for the national student movement for justice in Palestine.”

Over 150 Rally Against Northeastern's Double Standard: Silencing Students, Applauding Israeli Knesset Members
northeastern.4.1..pngBoston, MA - Tuesday night, over 150 students and local activists protested at Northeastern University with a strong message to the administration: Don't silence Students for Justice in Palestine and applaud the Israeli Knesset. The protest was sponsored by a coalition of 20 Boston-area organizations, and took place outside of a university-sponsored "town hall" meeting with six members of the Israeli Knesset. The rally followed a talk by author and activist Ali Abunimah, co-founder and director of the publication The Electronic Intifada.

URGENT ACTION: Northeastern University Suspends Students for Justice in Palestine
NU_SJP.jpgWith profound disappointment and righteous indignation Northeastern University Students for Justice in Palestine announces it has been suspended as an organization. SJP is disappointed because Northeastern’s claims of creating a diverse learning environment that encourages the free exchange of ideas and promotes Academic Freedom are impossible to reconcile with the university’s decision to suppress our speech and suspend our political group. As if banning our activities from campus and denying us all use of campus resources wasn’t outrageous enough, the university is pursuing expulsion-level sanctions for two students—all for participation in a mock eviction action. SJP is furious to report the only individuals to face our school’s opaque disciplinary process are two young women of color; none of the white or male participants have faced any charges. This unprecedented ban and appalling prosecutions are the latest attempt by the university to suppress pro-Palestine speech, and continues the university’s disturbing history of enacting injustice.

HOW EUROPE'S SOCIAL MOVEMENTS CONVERGED IN AMSTERDAM TO PLAN 2014 #EUINCRISIS
Originally published by Transnational Institute

The Transnational Institute hosted in Amsterdam a European strategy meeting in October which brought together different European social movements on the front lines of resistance against the neoliberal E.U. austerity regime.

Austerity, privatization and attacks on social rights, imposed by the European Commission, have become a reality for people across Europe. While there have been many impressive struggles at the national level - especially in Southern Europe - European coordination is still weak apart from sporadic days of joint action.

In recent years European social movements have organized numerous meetings to analyze the situation. However, it also became clear that European social movements required a common strategy. Following the results of the E.U. economic governance assembly organized in the Alter Summit in Greece in June, the Amsterdam strategy meeting was called to coordinate European struggles against the Troika's imposition of neoliberal policies under the new E.U. economic governance regime.
