    While other advanced nations are seeing continual increases to their quality-of-life indices, the only thing the U.S. has managed to consistently increase is its prison population. With a highly segregated education system that relies too heavily on invalid standardized testing and punitive disciplinary tactics, the school-to-prison pipeline is only strengthening for the poor, Black. Further, considering that the crime rate has steadily dropped and stagnated over the past few decades, this makes the negative correlation between declining crime and police militarization, or the rapid expansion of the prison industrial complex much more glaringly apparent and disturbing.

    FROM THE UNAUTHORIZED PSYCHOANALYSIS OF DONALD J. TRUMP

    Welcome to the Impeachment Circus
    By James C. McIntosh, M.D.

    What the world has seen of Donald Trump since 2016, has been Trump in the larval stages. He has been testing the walls of his cocoon since his first days of office. He has heeded minimal advice, bowed to few established conventions and tempered his speech hardly

  • City-Wide NYCHA Residents March Demanding Funding For NYCHA Without Privitization

  • Oct 18, 2019 from 12:00pm to 2:00pm
  • Location: Holmes Towers to Gracie Mansion
  • Description:
    3829015225?profile=originalThough there's never a shortage of funding for police, prisons, the military, and tax cuts for the rich, when it comes to investing in public housing, schools, or healthcare, we're always told there's never enough.  In fact, for decades, city, state, and federal governments all slashed funding for HUD and NYCHA, creating major disinvestment, slum-like conditions, and the deficit we see in NYCHA today. 

    Until recently, NYCHA even paid the NYPD $75 million annually out of the NYCHA budget for the NYPD to conduct vertical patrols in NYCHA developments--essentially stealing much-needed funding from NYCHA to pay for the kind of policing that led to the murder of Akai Gurley in 2014. 

    NYCHA is home to over half a million people and an invaluable resource for New York City, as one of the last places working class people, who are the lifeblood of this city, can still afford to live.  The infill plan, and all of NYCHA 2.0, is proof that under capitalism, the government would rather give away
