Police evict elementary school occupation

first_imgMarch following police attack on Lakeview school occupation, July 3. WW photo: Al WynnOakland, Calif. – The city of Oakland, Calif., and its school district somehow found the funds to order a police raid on a group of parents, teachers and children who were occupying the site of Lakeview Elementary school. They took this action despite the layoffs, budget shortfalls and a $2 million school bond debt to the banks.Forty Oakland school and city police evicted a small but committed Lakeview community from the schoolyard on July 3 at 4 a.m. Most people left voluntarily but police arrested two activists, who were cited and released.Supporters had occupied the school site since June 15, the last day of school. They have been demanding the reopening of Lakeview and four other struggling Oakland schools. The Oakland Educational Association, the teacher’s union, has given a great deal of support to this important struggle. Additionally, the San Francisco Labor Council recently passed a resolution backing the Lakeview community occupation and criticizing the attacks on public schools.The Oakland Unified School District has slated Lakeview to be turned into administrative offices, and has directed that Santa Fe Elementary, another closed school, be leased to a neighboring school district. The OUSD has only promised to provide transportation for Santa Fe students for one year. However, district officials have not announced any plans to transport the students — who are predominantly African American and Latino/a — from four other neighborhood schools to their new schools.Lakeview’s sit-in organizers released a statement, which stressed, ”We have been evicted but not even close to defeated. Join us and build a militant resistance to fight for quality public education.”Later on July 3, they organized an emergency rush-hour rally at Lakeview Elementary. More than 250 people gathered on the school’s lower steps to show their support for this struggle. A new fence had been erected around the school since the early morning police raid, effectively keeping supporters off the school site.Joel Velasquez, a parent leader of this struggle, explained that he had tried for years to get the school district to put up such a fence to protect the children because the school is located in a very heavily trafficked neighborhood right off a freeway ramp. “Now, the fence is finally put up, but it’s to keep the community out,” he emphasized.After a brief rally, supporters went on a spirited march, winding their way through an upscale Oakland residential neighborhood. They were taking their protest to the home of School Superintendent Tony Smith. Their chant, ”Open our schools! Close our prisons! Who’s our future? It’s the children!” resounded through the streets.Lakeview parents, teachers and students rallied in front of Smith’s home, urging the school official to reopen the schools or to resign. Smith was nowhere to be seen. This prompted Miles, one of the young children active in this struggle, to ask: ”Where is Tony Smith? Why won’t he come out and talk to us?” Miles and a dozen other children led the march to Smith’s home.The Lakeview coalition announced plans to continue the free People’s School for Public Education across the street from Lakeview at Splash Pad Park. They invited all to come and support the school. Several teachers and community supporters announced plans to run for school board.

Martínez family reunites to fight deportation on Father’s Day

first_imgMellany Martínez with her father Manuel Martínez on the international bridge, defying his deportation.Families shouldn’t have to spend Father’s Day on an international bridge just to be together, but that’s what happened to the Martínez family from Houston.Manuel Martínez Arámbula was deported in early April after he led a powerful hunger strike of over 1,000 prisoners at the Joe Corely Immigration Detention Center north of Houston. The night after a 50th birthday party for him was held outside the detention center on April 3, the Immigration Customs Enforcement deported him. His spouse, Ernestina Hernandez, and their daughter Mellany Martínez were devastated. Manuel has lived in Houston since he was eight years old.A campaign was begun called “Regresa Papa” to fight to bring their loved one home.On June 14, a bus trip was organized to the Mexican border at Laredo and the Martínez family was reunited in the middle of the international bridge, where daughter Mellany and her father chained themselves to each other in an emotional reunification.Organized by Alianza Mexicana, supporters came from Houston and San Antonio, including All of Us or None-Texas; End Mass Incarceration in Houston and San Antonio; the San Antonio Brown Berets; the League of United Latin American Citizens, chapters 4994 and 4254; the New Black Panther Party; the Prevention of Migrant Deaths Working Group; and others.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Some Hoping for Stronger Commitment to Ethanol in Biden Infrastructure Plan

first_img Facebook Twitter Audio Playerhttps://hoosieragtoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/Reaction-to-biofuels-in-infrastructure-plan.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Emily SkorBiofuel groups say President Biden’s infrastructure package overlooks the need to expand access to low-carbon biofuels like corn ethanol. Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor says it is disappointing that Biden’s more than two trillion-dollar infrastructure plan only calls for more renewable energy research after Biden campaigned on promoting biofuels.“This was, most assuredly, a missed opportunity by the administration to harness the emissions-reductions benefits that biofuels can deliver today,” Skor said.Troy Bredenkamp with the Renewable Fuels Association hopes this draft can be improved upon.“While there’s little in there for biofuels in this first draft, certainly, from our perspective, it is just that, a first draft,” Bredenkamp said. “And so, we certainly see an opportunity, and we will be making our points to the administration and congressional policymakers that ethanol and other biofuels are certainly decarbonizing the transportation sector.”Bredenkamp says research is good but agrees there have already been decades of research on ethanol.“We have researchers from Harvard and Tufts University recently publish a report that showed that conventional ethanol made with conventional corn today had a 46 percent smaller carbon footprint than conventional gasoline,” he explained.And the RFA’s own research found that during the 13-years of the RFS, ethanol and other biofuels reduced the nation’s carbon emissions by nearly one billion metric tons, equal to taking more than 180 million cars off the road.Source: NAFB News Service Home Indiana Agriculture News Some Hoping for Stronger Commitment to Ethanol in Biden Infrastructure Plan SHARE Facebook Twitter Some Hoping for Stronger Commitment to Ethanol in Biden Infrastructure Plan SHARE Previous articleHow to Start Clean and Stay Clean This SpringNext articleWeekly Ethanol Production Rises While Inventories Drop Andy Eubank By Andy Eubank – Apr 4, 2021 last_img read more

Kids Who Care hosts International Music Theatre Camp

first_imgTwitter Twitter Facebook ReddIt printStudents from all around the world will meet up for the Kids Who Care International Musical Theatre Camp.According to the program’s website, the camp started this Sunday, July 12, and will give children the chance to explore the world of music over the next two weeks.  The camp can be attended by children ages 6 to 18 and is hosted at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center.Deborah Jung, executive director and founder for the Kids Who Care program, said the summer camp provides children the opportunity to pursue theater outside of their hometowns.“Our desire at Kids Who Care is to create a place where the child is cherished,” Jung said. “To find kids who love the process of creating musical theatre (and) to find adults who adore kids and the process.”According to Kathy Albright, the program’s development director, Kids Who Care has hosted international students for over 20 years, creating relationships across the globe.“We are very purposeful to seek international relations,” Albright said.Students travel from countries such as China, Australia, Mexico, and Germany. Albright said the program continually strives to reach a larger demographic throughout the world.Nicky Castle is a volunteer from Australia for the Kids Who Care program. She said the program has effected the way she interacts with people from other parts of the world.“It changes everything. Suddenly these countries are not so far away or unknown, but they become very personal,” Castle said.Kristen Thiebaud, public relations director at Kids Who Care, said students will be given the chance to perform an original production, ‘Look Up.’The play was written by local artists and inspired by various works and ideas from team members at Kids Who Care such as Sydnie Roy, international leader and camp alumni.“It seems to be a hot topic right now, especially among our generation” Roy said. “It encourages us to start looking up from our phone and talking to other people a little bit more.”According to Andrea Ballard, Kids Who Care marketing director, the play is scheduled for five performances to be held at Scott Theatre.However, the program aims much higher than musical theatre, but to build character and lasting relationships among their students.“I can’t even express how much confidence in myself that Kids Who Care has given me” said Jayden Castle, international student leader. “I want to share that with everyone.”For more information on the camp or how you can get involved, visit their website.
