Political Prisoners to the NorthFight'th'Man
At least 4 community organizers currently being held as political prisoners as G20 related police repression continues to increase. As the G20 meetings happen behind fortified fences, numerous long-time community organizers working on issues ranging from migrant justice to climate change to indigenous sovereignty are being targeted and arrested by police. At approximately 4:45 a.m., June 26, about 20 police officers raided a Toronto home. They entered the house without consent through the back door, aggressively dragging unclothed people from their beds, kicking others who were asleep on the floor.

Brush Up on Your Knowledge of Union History What is May Day? Each year, many nations around the world honor May Day, also known as International Workers’ Day.

The 8 hour work day, 8 to rest, 8 to play and 8 to keep the bills at bay. How about the 5 day work week. Won, won by struggle and years of pushing back. These small luxuries, why were they so hard fought?

Pacifica Forum Is Off-Campus!Fight'th'Man
I heard from members of the ASUO and it was confirmed today, by Paul Shang- Pacifica Forum will no longer meet on campus but at the Baker Center. Pacifica Forum is off campus. The forum is off campus! While still on University Property, being paid for by students and community… it is a major minor victory! Or maybe a minor major victory, but in any case, the Forum has left campus, is spatially separated from the communities they target and no longer receives the privilege of academic appearance.
