The Path of the Revolutionary Student Movement

08-02-2009 03:19

In the university town of Mérida, Venezuela, student political organizations have had a significant presence at marches both for and against a proposed constitutional amendment that will eliminate the two-term limit on elected offices if it is approved in a national vote this February 15th. The predominant discourse has been quite polarized between opponents and supporters of President Hugo Chávez, who plans to run for a third term in office and carry on the construction of “21st Century Socialism” if the amendment passes. However, nuanced voices have emerged from the campaign hype. Seeking to highlight the deeper analysis provided by these non-conformist voices, interviewed student leader and social activist Carmen Pulido about the state of radical student activism and the amendment. Pulido regularly organizes student-labor solidarity activities and other political events along with a loose network of anti-capitalist university students. These students have been staunch supporters of many of the initiatives undertaken by Chávez’s ten year administration. Nonetheless, the students persistently retain their autonomy in order to push the “Bolivarian Revolution” led by Chávez toward what they see as a more just and revolutionary path.

Obama v. Cognitive Bias

06-02-2009 12:11

A study was recently published "showing that a performance gap between African-Americans and whites on a 20-question test administered before Mr. Obama’s nomination all but disappeared when the exam was administered after his acceptance speech and again after the presidential election." Earlier researchers had "assembled university students with identical SAT scores and administered tests to them, discovering that blacks performed significantly poorer when asked at the start to fill out a form identifying themselves by race. The researchers attributed those results to anxiety that caused them to tighten up during exams in which they risked confirming a racial stereotype."

Student Activism on Brum Uni Campus – The Criminalisation of Lawful Protest

06-02-2009 00:41

Banner by day
The occupation of Arts room LR4 in Birmingham University, conducted on 20th January 2009, which was in solidarity with Gaza and the people of Palestine ended after 12 hours because of the University’s heavy handed approach. The Arts building was shut down early, preventing many people wanting to get back into the occupation from doing so. Then after hours of negotiation the university security used force to compromise the door into the lecture room. Students blockaded the door as negotiations continued to maintain a hold on the room, but eventually due to the threats of removal by force from the police students voted to leave the room. They left with chants of “free free Palestine” and a written document issuing them a meeting with the Vice Chancellor of the University to discuss their demands.

High Court Australia pervert justice, cause injury leading to deaths

02-02-2009 21:24

How High Court Australia conspire to pervert justice, and to cause injury leading to deaths

Dear Australian Parliament and the Australian Federal Police,

I give notice of a Judicial and Constitutional crisis in the Australian legal system.

By giving me authority to join to my action, ALL actions against Mr John Wilson are now suspended until the High Court Australia determines all Questions of Law, and Notices of a constitutional matter.

A judicial and constitutional crisis means a void in jurisdiction of all legal proceedings in the Australian legal system.
