Columbia-sponsored high school, created as Manhattanville quid pro quo, evicted, now homeless: ironic? CU formally apologizes to Minutemen: reactions predictable Barnard career services better than Columbia’s…unless you want to be a bartender Speaking of which: bars crack down on legal IDs, but hire illegal bouncers Revelation of the day: “in certain cases drug use destroys […]

A digest of activisty news we missed from the last week. Copycats! Over at UCLA–which showed up on our “WTF” radar last year because of that taser business–protesters actually shut down a talk by some Minutemen-affiliated speakers. (note: This is not the Minuteman Project, but the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps.) Or, rather, according to the site above […]

That was coming from Provost Brinkley, who said that eleven total letters had been sent, three of which went to non-students, noting that […]

We Are Not Alone

When a Minuteman speech was interrupted by a fire bell at Georgetown, it turned out to be a literal false alarm. Not so at Michigan State Law School recently, where Tom Tancredo, a Republican Congressman from Colorado who has become a sort of anti-illegal-immigration lightning rod, was forced to stop speaking when student activists twice sounded the alarm […]

With great power comes…great attention.  Even from the most unlikely of sources:  Bob Avakian, chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party, has written of his support for the Minuteman protesters on his website.  The organization’s inspiring press release can be read here.  More interesting, however, is an article submitted by a reader of RCP’s site, entitled […]

An article in today’s New York Times takes a step back to look at President Bollinger’s track record on dealing with free speech issues in the last few years, given a run of pesky controversies. Why doesn’t Yale ever have to deal with this kind of thing?  …maybe because they’re having too much fun following […]

Columbia journalism and sociology professor Todd Gitlin knows activism. Once president of Students for a Democratic Society, there’s not much he hasn’t seen, and although now he writes from comfortable digs in the Journalism School, Gitlin has some words of wisdom for those still taking it to the streets. After an hour of stories from […]

Since the fallout from the events of October 4th just keeps coming, we present you with a digest of the latest.  Item # 1: Matt Mireles, Spectator staff writer turned New York Post hatchet man, thinks we’re all a bunch of privileged guilty white kids.  Bwog wouldn’t want to get between him and Karina Garcia […]

Here’s how it happened: the original of the flyer was found in Schapiro by an […]
