Labor Beat: CTU Protest at BofA & Anti-Layoff March
0
0
In early February, 2016 the Chicago Teachers Union marched against Chicago Public Schools' failing to re-negotiate toxic-swap loans from banks. Suing to get shady interest loan money back from B of A and other banks would help fund public schools. We watch as the union withdraws $750,000 from their B of A bank account in protest.

And we cover the big, 3,000-strong march by the CTU against 1,000 layoffs that CPS is threatening.

Mayor Emanuel, who has been 'bunkered up' since the Laquan McDonald shooting scandal, was also not let off the hook. Charles Kotrba, a student leader, said "Rahm has got to go because he's done nothing to fix our public education...there's far too much private interests. He's got to sue Bank of America.

They've taken hundreds of millions of dollars from CPS, and without it there's going to be catastrophic consequences."

"Mr. Mayor," CTU Recording Secretary Michael Brunson invoked, "a good public school system is the main safeguard and antidote against this rising tide of violence in the City of Chicago." Brunson added: "When this bank was about to fall off a precipice back in 2008 they received a helping hand from taxpayers.

Now Bank of America is back on its feet and profitable yet is unwilling to help keep from pushing Chicago schools off the same cliff."

The assault on public schools has been in the works for years, thanks to greed. Chicago in the top ten for leading the way in corruption in education, politics, and police. What's left?

Massive protest erupts in the southwestern Ethiopian town of Konso on March 8, 2016

Mass arrest in Konso following peoples’ demand for self-administration - Federal and regional forces are conducting mass arrests in Konso, southern Ethiopia following demand by the people of Konso to have their own zonal administration. Federal government and regional security forces were reportedly trying to force a large number of detainees to sign a piece of paper that says the demand for a self-administered zone was raised by “opposition political forces namely Patriotic Ginbot 7, but not the people of Konso.”

Konso is now under the control of federal forces; and businesses and schools have been closed for three weeks now, a source told ESAT on the phone.

The source said that regional special forces have gone to door to door in the middle of the night in Fasha, Duria and Kolme Kebeles to force people to sign the papers, but were to no avail as people refused to do so.

The federal government has reportedly sacked officials of the Woreda administration, including speaker of the council, for supporting the demand by the people of Konso.

Thousands of people rallied in Moldova’s capital, Chisinau, on Sunday in the latest act of a long-running anti-government protest demanding snap elections and the government’s resignation. Some protesters fought with police, leaving 14 officers injured.

The rally was staged by the right-wing Dignity and Truth Platform Party, the Liberal Reformist Party, and the Liberal Democratic Party of Moldova. Protesters began gathering near the parliament building on Sunday afternoon chanting “Snap elections!” and “Down with the government and the parliament,” according to Sputnik.

Members of Dignity and Truth accuse the government of being highly corrupt, dependent on local oligarchs, and responsible for the impoverishment of the population. The party, which is comprised of former politicians and advocates promoting reunification with Romania, also blames the Moldovan leadership for being slow in its efforts to integrate with the EU.
