Education For The People! All Out For Milwaukee: October 10 – 12, 2003
• Democracy In Education Conference
• National March on Bradley
Rise Up! As we move forward with our collective campaign to challenge the right wing in Milwaukee County, we have made a call for a national march on the Bradley Foundation (Oct. 10-12). Throughout the country the response has resonated with local struggles for racial, social, and economic justice. We will expose and challenge the neo-conservative and neo-liberal agenda wherever it is working to maintain and benefit from the oppression of our communities. October 10 - 12 is around the corner and your participation is crucial in these efforts.
We will continue to organize locally and regionally for the Democracy In Education Conference and the National March on the Bradley Foundation happening here in Milwaukee. One aspect of challenging the Right Wing means confronting its economic agenda of privatization schemes that profit from poverty, racism, and exploitation—funded by public money and assets without the consent or the oversight of the public.
Taking on the Right Wing Giant:
Since 1985, Milwaukee has been taken under siege by the wealthiest and most influential right-wing think tank in the country. And no, we don't need the Allen-Bradley clock tower to know what time it is. Currently, there is a coalition to oppose the racist and economically destructive agenda of the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation (LHBF) which is headquartered in Milwaukee.
Since our march/rally against the Klan and NAZI menace in November 2002, we have continued to organize our campaign to stop institutional racism and promote economic justice in our city. Our agenda is clear; we will expose the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation's economic agenda in Milwaukee and provide an alternative to Bradley's right wing social and educational experiments being forced upon us.
We oppose the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation's economic agenda in Milwaukee and understand the necessity provide an alternative to Bradley's right wing social and educational experiments that are carried out in our city.
To the city, the Bradley Foundation has left us with the poverty enhancement program known as W-2, a gutted public educational system through school vouchers and privatization schemes, and public silence and complicity through massive buyouts to many political figures, non-profit and faith-based organizations. The LHBF, acting in the best interests of White Supremacy and Corporate Greed, has achieved for itself top advisory spots to the Bush Administration's education and work agenda and is central to creating and implementing policies that are direct attacks on communities of color.
The LHBF is the strategist behind the Bush Administration’s war doctrine of pre-emptive strike that clears an economic path for US corporations. This foundation is also creates and funds the repressive policing tactics under the name of “Homeland Security”.
To its corporate criminal allies, the LHBF has given thousands of low wage workers and in many cases free labor. These private interests profit off of the racist sanctions, limited educational access, and lack of rights on the job. Though Bradley's attack on public education, the foundation can reassure the private sector that they will have a constant supply of low-skilled Black and Latino laborers.
To the city, the LHBF tried to create the political reality of Charles Murray's book the Bell Curve, to which the foundation paid Murray 160,000 a year to write. The book and the foundation espouse the idea that Blacks and Latinos are by nature, inferior, and therefore will "congregate to the lower-classes of society." According to the LHBF mentality, they (we) are "meant" to work in low-wage jobs and attend inferior public schools. This is unacceptable.
The time has come to say enough to the further deterioration of the City at the hands of the Bradley foundation. To stand for justice and participation in our local democracy. To fight for economic Justice and stand against the racist agenda of the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation. See you in Milwaukee.
