[SDCPJ] High school leafleters needed

It's time to reach students in our region with a message of peace and hope.  

Budget cuts in education and wars raging overseas sends a clear message to students.
Recruiters fill their classrooms and halls reminding them of their slim chance to go to college 
but the very real potential that they will go to a war zone.

San Diego area students have been working to increase access to higher education and reduce the effects of recruiters on campus.

Lets pass out flyers with information and resources they can use.
We will leaflet all over the county the week of April 26th
All we need is you!

*Please reply to this e-mail if you can give an hour one morning during the week of April 26th.
Let me know the school name or area of the county you can help out and I will work to connect you with a team of volunteers.

I hope to hear from you - Thanks for your support for San Diego's youth!

[SDCPJ] Last Call for Artworks for a May Day exhibition

May 1st is observed as International Labor Day by most of the countries of the world.

On May 1, 1886, there were massive strikes all over America. Months before, The Knights of Labor, the largest union of that day, had said that if their members didn't get the 8-hour day 6-day week by that date they would call for a nation-wide strike. 20,000 workers actually had it so it was not an impossible dream.

On that day in Chicago 190,000 people demonstrated for the 8-hour day. There were 340,000 people demonstrating nation-wide.

It's because 4 union members were hung in Chicago in 1886 for fighting for the 8-hour day that you take for granted today.*

In 1889 labor leaders from many countries met in Paris. They voted to continue the action for shorter hours for all workers of the world and that May 1st would be designated as International Workers Day. On that day in 1890 workers all over Europe showed their solidarity with the workers of America by taking part in parades, meetings and demonstrations in support of their struggle for the 8-hour workday. That was the first May Day celebration.

Excerpted from Ken Secor - Activist San Diego and the International Association of Machinists (Retired)

* They were present at the  Haymarket Square rally in support of the 8-hour day where a bomb killed one policeman and wounded several others.  The police fired widely and many in the crowd were wounded and a few died of their injuries afterward.

Here in the USA, Labor Day in September was created specifically as the un-May Day workers day.

================================
The Centro Cultural de la Raza calls for the submission of artworks and other things for a celebration of International Workers Day exhibition the month of May and opening on the First.

The exhibition committee is looking for photography,* paintings, drawings, and prints as well as objects.  Banners, posters and leaflets are welcome.  The criteria for acceptance is that the work in the show will be in the spirit of May Day and reflect the working class character, broadly defined, of this international celebration.

Suggestions are that submissions represent in some way work, class struggle, organization, working class history, etc.  Work certainly includes unpaid labor such as housework and child rearing.

At the opening, there will be live music and, perhaps short statements and poetry.  Recorded labor music and video will be run whenever the show is open.

* Photo snapshots can be submitted with the understanding that those accepted would be printed at around 8x10" size and mounted or framed in some way for display.

HOW TO SUBMIT: attachments by the internet
Send no more than three selected things as compressed digital image attachments to artsub@centroraza.org no later than April 23rd.  You will be notified by the 26th if your submission is accepted and when it should be brought to the Centro.

Though all care will be done to protect submissions, the Centro cannot accept responsibility for your work.  When the exhibition is over, you must pick up your submission at a designated day/time.

The information is now available on the site  - www.centroraza.org - under exhibition-more

May 2010 Left Hook: Deadlocked Government

Left Hook

By Walter Davis

 

28 April 2010

 

Deadlocked Government: As the Country Suffers, Leadership Fails

 

With the economy in the tank and American families suffering, a deadlocked government continues to look after the interests of the corporations. These are tough times for the American family. So many teens seem not to have hope; young adults do not seem to be able to realize their true potential. Our world class education system has been gutted while the war machine never seems to run out of money.

 

The wealthy get wealthier and the poor get poorer. Our court system continues to punish with illogical laws that increase our poverty level and destroy American families in family court, drug court, criminal court. People are dying because they have no insurance and cannot pay $28,000 per month for chemo or $400,000 for a transplant. Profit is the motivation, not concern for our fellow man and woman. If a profit cannot be made, it is not done.

 

Florida Governor Charlie Crist has been targeted by his party for appearing to cooperate with the executive branch of government.

 

Republican Senator Lindsay Graham has withdrawn his support for important climate change legislation due to intimidation for daring to cooperate; on its face, the immigration bill is being blamed for this as a smoke screen. Unenforceable immigration legislation remains on the books while families languish and suffer with the threat of deportation because they cannot satisfy unreasonable immigration policy in a system that is deadlocked and unable to help them even if they could.

 

The local Democratic Party laden with corruption, cronyism is powerless to stop a war mongering, out of touch local Republican spin machine. The Tea Party, however, threatens to do what the inept Democratic leadership cannot do: split and defeat the conservatives.

 

The apathetic and far left need representation. Democrats have moved to the center and Republicans have moved further to the right.

 

While Americans suffer from medical costs,  a watered down health care bill gets resisted by Republicans. While financial institutions continue to rip off the American public, Republicans continue to delay and water down financial reform. While service members die needlessly, our leadership continues to prosecute senseless wars as our coffers are drained and schools are closed.

 

The time for nationalistic fervor and religious fanaticism has passed. The American people need leadership that is focused on THEIR problems as opposed to the money of corporations. Corporations must be stripped of their political power. This country must finally become of the people, for the people and by the people. If you think it ever has been, you are sadly mistaken. A resource based economy is the only way to go. It is time to move to a higher level of consciousness.

Friends,
I hope to see you in the streets on May Day. I have found a couple of links to background info on the history of May Day (you can google it and find many more).
This year, with the passage of the racist, fascist law in Arizona, May Day will also be a day of worldwide protest. The new Arizona law moves us from the realm of talking about immigration law reform and the destructive impacts of NAFTA (and similar laws around the world), to the realm of talking about fundamental human rights and outright fascism. Meanwhile, the illegal U.S. wars and occupations in Iraq and Afghanistan continue and, together with paying for more than 800 military bases around the world, it is bankrupting the US economy. May Day again is a time to demand the wars end and demand the US close all our foreign military bases.
NO TO EMPIRE & NO TO FASCISM!
FUND EDUCATION & SOCIAL SERVICES - NOT WAR!

[SDCPJ] Nonviolent Peace Monitor Training May 11

Learn nonviolent skills for assisting at demonstrations and other events!

What is a Peace Monitor?  At numerous demonstrations of the past it has been found that the effectiveness and nonviolence of the action has been greatly enhanced by the participation of people with special skills in nonviolence. These specialized participants, or peace monitors/peacekeepers, perform specific facilitating roles for the action. Even if you have not decided to specialize in the role of peace monitor, you may find yourself in a conflict situation in which peacekeeper skills will be useful. In a nonviolent action everyone is, to some extent, a peacekeeper.

Peace monitors help set the tone for the action;  help act as a communication network; help provide emergency medical and legal aid; help maintain the internal self-discipline of the action;they may also sometimes act as mediators between authorities and demonstrators.

This training is for everyone and useful in many settings.  We do have an upcoming demonstration on May 19 at General Atomics where peace monitors will be needed, so if you would like to volunteer to help at that action, this training will be essential!

In order to have enough materials we'd like people to please RSVP; please RSVP to Hal Brody,  hbrody@sbcglobal.net

Peace Monitor Training
Tuesday, May 11 6:30-9:30 p.m.

The Raza Rights Coalition is a project of, 
Union del Barrio, at; 

http://uniondelbarrio.org/laverdad/



********


On Monday, April 26, 2010, many community organizations from throughout San Diego will come together for a vigil to stand in solidarity and show support for the people of Arizona, as we unite our voices with those who reject the recently signed Arizona state law SB 1070. The Raza Rights Coalition and its member collectives have made a call to convene this vigil at the Federal Building in Downtown San Diego, in order to reject the approval of a law that has been clearly designed to criminalize and punish the working people of Arizona. 


"It is truly sad to witness the lack of political will on the part of the Obama Administration in the effort to move on immigration reform, a reality that has motivated the extreme right wing in state of Arizona to promote and legalize the violation of civil and human rights," stated Adriana Jasso, coordinator of the Raza Rights Coalition in San Diego. 


Communities around the country, and most recently in Arizona, have been witness to how the Obama administration has provided funds for operational policies that have terrible consequences, such as family separation. The most recent operation in the state of Arizona was the largest in the history of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) - an operation that mobilized over 800 agents in four different locations across the state. This operation is clearly part of the strategy of the Obama administration, which continues to concentrate all of its efforts on raids, arrests and deportations. 


"Every community across the country must speak out, mobilize and reject SB 1070; which was just been signed into law by the Governor of Arizona. It is time to be a part of history, and in an organized fashion, resist these terrible attacks that our communities face on a daily basis..." concludes Adriana Jasso. 

The empty promises of change and total lack of political will from politicians at the federal level can not, and must not be the source of our communities sinking further into fear and the marginalization. The initiative for profound and definitive change must originate from our communities that suffer daily the consequences of these repressive policies. Furthermore, it should be noted that both Democrats and Republicans have promoted these policies.
