    On Friday June 13th 2014, members of Families for Freedom,Detention Watch Network, Enlace, and Migrant Power Alliance held a teach-in outside of Senator Schumer’s NYC office to highlight his shameful record of working against immigrant families and in favor of deportation for profit!

    "Why: A quick review of U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer’s record reveals he has built a public persona as an immigrant rights advocate while turning his back on immigrants and specifically fellow New Yorkers whose best interest and voices he was elected to represent.

    Schumer’s Shameful Record:
    As the lead Senate Democrat working immigration, he was part of the failed Gang of 8 – which drove an enforcement-heavy reform agenda.

    - Out of sync with momentum nationwide in the movement to stop all deportations – Schumer recently voiced opposition to President Obama reviewing the devastating deportation system and providing immediate relief.

    - He’s taken over $100,000 in campaign contributions from the private prison industry and pushed for billions more dollars spent on increased enforcement and detention of immigrants.

    NY Impact: 
    - At least 7K of the people form NY in the past 5 years who got deported have US citizen children.

    - ICE’s detention and deportation policies are breaking apart New York City families and neighborhoods. From October 2005 through December 2010, the parents of 13,521 U.S. citizen children were apprehended in New York. This data is often not obtained by the agency, so the actual number is likely much higher.”

    "[a subtlety is] the name for sugar sculptures that were originally made for the tables of Middle Eastern sultans before being adopted by European nobility. A subtlety was a display of power and wealth to impress dinner guests."
    "she’s a woman, a bootylicious figure with something paradoxical about her pose. She’s both a supplicant and an emblem of power. From the front, she seems to hold her ground. But what you see from behind is what happens when a nude woman bends over, raising a question of whether it’s a gesture of sexual passivity or not."

  5. "OUST PETRAEUS!"


    On September 9, 2013, students, teachers, and anti-war activists got together to protest the appointment of war criminal David Petraeus as a teacher at the City University of New York Macaulay Honors College.

    Although highly opposed by many students and faculty, Petraeus is returning for the Fall 2014 semester.

    Here is the scary neoliberal syllabus to his scary class: 
    "The Coming of The North American Decade(s)?"
