Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014

MCJ, housed at NYU’s Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service, is looking for people to talk about their workplace bullying experiences.

MCJ wants:

1. Individuals l who have stood up to their friends or coworkers when they were bullying another person.
2. Individuals who take action about problems they see in their communities/friend groups and families as well as workplaces, and hold their ground despite the backlash they incur.

Justice for the Central Park Five – Justice for All

Wednesday, June 25th, 2014

By FreidaPeople Stat posting on Raymond Santana’s Facebook Page:

Lynn, with all due respect, the tragedy is these boys got railroaded at every step of the way and the media was happy to support their presumption of guilt based on their skin color. The tragedy is that even to this day, people insist on smearing their character as men. The tragedy is that even when Black and brown people are completely innocent, there is a presumption of guilt.

The tragedy is that most of the people in this world still won’t believe the lesson this whole thing teaches us. Crime is not based on skin color and cops are not here to protect or serve children of color from poor communities. I applaud the men I have come to know a bit. In spite of all the harm our racist system inflicted on these kids, they became pillars of society and great role models. The system took their youth, but never their integrity. Can’t wait until all the files are unsealed.

Justice for the Central Park Five. Justice for all.

 

FreidaPeople Stat posts regularly on Facebook and I and many, many others consider her opinions pretty much Gospel.

No one should be forcibly evicted, no matter where they live. Forced evictions are illegal under international and regional human rights law. People living in informal settlements have the same rights to adequate housing, water, sanitation, education and health care as all others do. Click here for more info.
