¡ We Don’t Need No Thought Control !

thefreeorg:

End-School-School-DestroysWe reprint with thanks this excellent (though US centered) attack on schooling..  how our kids get abandoned and wiped out in soulless institutions.education-kills-creativitywhat we need is community based activity and project learning run by volunteers and the youths themselves.

Our kids are in CRISIS.

I work with teenagers in an affluent suburban area.

They don’t comprehend what they read. They use calculators to multiply 10 x 10. The average high school junior has no clue what the word “diligent” means.

They write essays resembling those of a 5th grader. About how Albert Einstein discovered electricity.

In tests administered in reading, science and math to 15 year-olds globally, we are behind TWENTY NINE countries in math. And our kids’ performance in reading and science is  not much better. And yet, American investment in education is unrivaled, globally.

Are you scared yet?

We lead the world in the consumption of illegal recreational drugs. And one of the chief sales outlets?

Our SCHOOLS.

Our teenage suicide rate is the highest in the world.

EVERY DAY there are over 5,400 suicide attempts by kids in grades 7 – 12.

NOW are you scared?

The two places teenagers…

International Callout: Help us resist eviction of SquatCity

    see video here  http://bcove.me/02q47p86

We are putting out an international callout for support, to help us resist the eviction of our homes, and to defend squatting in Dublin. We have been subject to a large scale eviction attempt over the last couple of days, and we are currently resisting, and appealing for help and support. Many of you would have stayed there during the International Squatters Convergence, and saw the space for yourselves.

GRANGEGORMAN -An Inspirational Beauty is Born

Occasionally events happen and you fail to realise the significance until much later. But the recent events in Grangegorman and the violent and oppressive attempts to evict the thirty young people from the home they’ve built for themselves in the ruins of terraced houses and a warehouse is such a significant moment.

B1xQk_SCcAE717y.jpg:large

from Revolution News with thanks.  Belgian riot police fired tear gas and water cannon’s repressing the demonstrators on Thursday, at the first of what’s to be a series of anti-austerity demonstrations and strikes planned for the coming weeks. More than 100,000 people were on the streets of Brussels where they marched peacefully for almost two hours before violence broke out.The violence flared up at the end of an otherwise peaceful protest, when riot police present at the peaceful march provoked protesters and deployed tear gas, some radical demonstrators hurled objects at riot police and launched attacks with the barriers and against the officials. Some set off colored smoke flares. The resistance to tear gas and water cannon assault continued for hours. Continue reading Great Brussels Rebellion..photos and videos

9-N. Will Spanish forces attack Catalan ‘referendum’?


Its the moment of truth for the 9N Catalan ‘referendum’, now called the ‘consultation’.
The far-right Spanish government are playing the ”fascist card”, whipping up a dangerous frenzy of false nationalism to escape the avalanche of corruption cases being revealed daily against their top members.
WILL THEY USE MILTARY POLICE AGAINST 1000s POLLING STATIONS?
WILL THEY USE MILITARY POLICE AGAINST 1000s OF POLLING STATIONS?
The right-wing ”Spanish Constitutional Court” is about to ban it for the 2nd time (on orders from their political paymasters).    
Will  the Catalan government obey and order their own Catalan police, the Mossos, to attack the 40,000 volunteers who are all organized down to the the last detail and ready to go next Sunday?
If not will the corrupt and inept far Spanish PP government carry out its threat to arrest and jail the Catalan leaders, as happened so many times under the fascist dictatorship? Their direct predecessors even executed one legally elected Catalan president, LluisCompanys, along with tens of thousands of Catalan republicans, and banned the Catalan language from schools for 40 years, etc.
