$500 mill of debt’s a-burnin – More great action from Chile on Student Debt

As we demonstrated on a previous show, in an interview with Chilean Anarchists, Chile has some strong grassroots mojo. Due to our concerns over student debt, and the quality of education in general, this story caught my eye.

This act of political fire sports pairs nicely with Strike Debt’s Rolling Jubilee initiative, to student debt relief. But this action has a distinct 1971/old-school flair.

Headline from the 1971 break-in of the Philadelphia FBI office.

It’s inspiring to see a multifaceted set of tactics coming together to address the grossly disproportionate debt that exists within our culture of higher education. If you’re curious about how school debt resistance is carried out, be sure to check-out Strike Debt’s “Debt Resisters’ Operation Manual (DROM).”

If you want a good introduction into what the grassroots student movement is doing in Chile, check-out our interview with Melissa, Gabriel, and Pablo, three Chilean organizers visiting the US.

We return to where we left off at Lost Eras for the second part of our discussion on community-centered theatre. We continue to explore the rolls of artists in society. Is it just for entertainment, or is there a higher purpose? Should the arts teach and inspire a vision of the future? We’re joined again by Democracy Burlesque‘s Joseph Fedorko and Erik Parsons, along with Carl Lindberg from Stone Soup Theatre Project.

Special thanks again to all of our guests for this two-part series: Joseph Fedorko, Mallory Green, Erik Parsons, Whitney Jones, and Carl Lindberg.

WHAT THA FRACK?!

Revolution and Beer was on the front lines as Michael Madigan flip-flopped on a moratorium of fracking. He cynically used the moratorium issue to squeeze Fracking companies for more taxes, and it seems to have worked. He would love for you to call him and demand his support for HB3086 and SB1418 @ 217/546-7404. Stop the Frack Attack on Illinois. Call your IL Rep and Sen at 1-217-782-2000

CPS bans the book “Percepolis,” by Marjane Satrapi:

This week, CPS banned the book, Percepolis by Marjane Satrapi, a coming of age novel about a young girl in Iran growing up under a tyrannical and oppressive government. Sound familiar? Call the CPS Chief executive Barbara Byrd-Bennett and suggest a book she can ban next @ (773) 553-1500. Be creative with your choices.

Keep your calendars open for April 5th.

Next week we will have a major announcement, so stay tuned.

And just for fun:

P.S. Hope you made it safely back to your bed after St. Patrick’s day!
