New Issue Just Released!

Here it is! The second issue of el participante. We've already made huge strides since the last issue.

We have:

Karina Garcia, "We Have our Name for a Reason" - a reflection on the formation and mission of Lucha from Lucha's former chair

Johanna Ocana, "A New Year For Lucha" - Lucha's new chair setting forth her vision

Rudi Batzell, "Problems in Discourse" - offers a critique of the way the idea of "community" has come to function as a euphemism for race and racism.

Wyatt Ford, "Democracy and the University" - examines just what campus "democracy" means in the age of corporate universities

Jake Matilsky - "Building the Anti-War Movement," - reflects on the current malaise, and the lines which continue to divide us

Tina Musa, "Starving Gaza" - examines how the actions of Israel since Hamas was elected have collectively punished the Palestinian people

Also - we have the "Core Curriculum" with an excerpt from Antonio Gramsci's Prison Notebooks, and a pretty exciting calendar of events.

Please download, read, print, and distribute!
