STOP THE ATTACK ON STUDENTS SKIPPING SCHOOL (tags)
The attack on students skipping school to engage in political activism, needs to Stop. Democratic principals have never occurred with youth behind desks. From the Popular movement to the Civil Rights movement, youth have always maintained an active role in standing against injustices.

Hotel Workers Boycott (tags)
Los Angeles. Local 11 members--housekeepers, cooks, servers, dishwashers, bellmen, front desk and PBX workers—announced a boycott this week of the nine luxury hotels of the Hotel Employers' Council after six months of threats and intimidation, the fear of an employer lockout, and termination of the workers' union contract. Elected officials, community groups, and clergy vow to honor the request “to avoid eating, meeting or sleeping” at hotels involved in the labor dispute to put financial pressure on the Hotel Council. Below find pictures of the picket line in front of the Wilshire Grand Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles on Thursday, November 18th at 7:30 PM.
