To the left, to the left: New rag on campus

Written by

participanteLucha, the militant Latino activist group responsible for all those newsprint gravestones on College Walk yesterday, is now in newsprint:  el participante, their fashionably uncapitalized, eight-page newsletter, began distribution on Sunday. “In addition to being a way for Lucha to communicate with the activist community, we hope it can turn into a place for discussion, criticism, and analysis of the left at Columbia,” explained editor Rudi Batzell in an e-mail. 

The first edition, available as a pdf here, contains reports on a recent march on Washington and Jena 6 rally at Bronx Community College, as well as the hunger strike demands and selections from a speech given by Malcolm X a week before his death.

Now all we need is the return of the Citadel

  1. haha  

    maybe they will read it themselves.... but thats about it lololoollololl

  2. Wait...  

    ... Why bother with a newsletter when they can just spam my e-mail like they normally do?

  3. threadjack  

    COLUMBIA BASKETBALL ON ESPN TONIGHT AT 9PM vs The Ohio State University.

    /threadjack

  4. two preguntas  

    1) These people are literate???
    2) Who gave these people access to a printer?

  5. nevermind  

    reading the pdf more than adequately answered my first question.

  6. that shit is hot!  

    you're a bunch of haters!

  7. latina  

    racist blood-sucking worthless bastards would be a more accurate description

  8. conservative  

    Somebody really does need to bring back the Citadel.

  9. lolexploitation  

    I think I'll pay my Mexican/Central American lawnmowers a few dollars less now, just to spite these idiots' demands.

  10. haha  

    They won't mind... they're too busy getting threesomes from your mama and your girl to notice.

  11. suckitlucha  

    Lucha is a pathetic organization. Waah waah, we are oppressed, waaaah. We must struggle against the oppressive administration of an incredibly diverse and liberal university.

  12. skeptical  

    You wouldnt know what it feels like to be oppressed.

  13. you wouldn't  

    know what it's like to not have a breeze in your head every time the wind blows, so who's the real loser here? Oh that's right, everyone in Columbia, for being associated with Lucha.

  14. Like, seriously?  

    Is this a joke?

  15. disgusted  

    the comments on this are reason ENOUGH for a group like LUCHA to be on this campus.

    "1) These people are literate???
    2) Who gave these people access to a printer?"

    OR

    "maybe they will read it themselves.... but thats about it lololoollololl"

    OR

    "I think I'll pay my Mexican/Central American lawnmowers a few dollars less now, just to spite these idiots' demands."

    FOR ONE, HOW RIDICULOUS ARE YOU? DO YOU SIT IN FRONT OF YOUR COMPUTER SCREEN, PATTING YOURSELF ON THE BACK AT HOW WITTY YOU THINK YOU ARE. YOU ARE NOT WITTY OR CLEVER OR FUNNY. WHO IS 'THESE PEOPLE.' ARE THEY LITERATE? WHY, YES, SOME ONE DID TEACH THE LATINOS TO WRITE... ARE YOU SURPRISED? AS FOR THE COMMENT ON THE LAWNMOWERS, YOU ARE JUST RIDICULOUS. CLEARLY THERE IS A NEED FOR A GROUP LIKE LUCHA WHEN THIS IS COMING FROM SUPPOSEDLY EDUCATED PEOPLE AT WHAT PEOPLE OFTEN SAY IS A LIBERAL UNIVERSITY.

    • these people  

      refers to Lucha, not Latinos. I wouldn't generalize across a diverse of group of people like the Latino community any more than I would make a claim about an entire race of people. Lucha, on the other hand, is just a narrow-minded enough segment of the general population that I feel perfectly right in lumping them all together under the umbrella of unabashed idiocy.
      P.S. Maybe you missed the memo from 1990, but TYPING IN CAPS DOESN'T MAKE ME READ LOUDER.

    • Behold

      You have written in CAPS. The increased size of the letters has buttressed your argument and I am now one of your sheep.
