New York City: End U.S. Wars Around the World and At Home
Saturday, October 25 - 2pm
Manhattan Theater Club, Studio 3, 311 W. 43rd St., 6th Floor (near Times Square)
A panel discussion with: 
Larry Adams, People’s Organization for Progress - connecting the wars abroad and at home
Greg Butterfield, International Action Center, just returned from Crimea - on the situation in Ukraine
Margaret Kimberley, Black Agenda Report and UNAC - on the war against African-Americans
Bernadette Ellorin, Bayan USA and UNAC - on the Trans-Pacific Partnership and US shift to Asia
Sara Flounders, International Action Center and UNAC - on US attacks on Iraq and Syria
Palestinian speaker to be announced
With around 1,000 military bases throughout the world the United States is conduction continuous and simultaneous wars. The U.S. military budget is close to that of all other countries combined. Under the false pretext of fighting terrorism and bringing democracy, the U.S. seeks regime change in several strategic countries in order to gain control of natural resources, install compliant governments and bolster its crippled economy. 
In the U.S. there have been unrelenting attacks on civil liberties, especially for those in the Afro-American communities and for undocumented workers. 
During this period, the antiwar and social justice movements must be a voice for the victims of U.S. policy and a counter to their lies. Sponsored by NYC United National Antiwar Coalition (UNAC)

Where do teachers go when the 3 p.m. bell rings?

When you’re a kid, you don’t really think they go anywhere. Except home, maybe, to grade papers and plan lessons and think up pop quizzes.

But of course teachers go off and do all sorts of things: They write books and run for office and start businesses and so much more.

Today we begin our new project, The Secret Lives of Teachers, to collect the stories of teachers’ lives after the students leave for the day.

Tell us about the Secret Lives of Teachers – share your own story or tell us about a teacher you know. You can tag your stories on social media with #secretteachers or drop an email to NPREd@npr.org.

Caption: For Mathias “Spider” Schergen, his Secret Life plays out in a one-car garage out back of his house in Southwest Chicago.

He turned it into a studio, a crowded place full of lumber and wood and paint and scrap metal and odd things like shoes and fabric. Stuff that he fashions into art.

There are “2805 [documented] victims of lynch mobs killed between 1882 and 1930… the vast majority, almost 2,500, of lynch victims were African-American.
"Lethal mob violence for seemingly minor infractions of the caste codes of behavior was more fundamental for maintaining terroristic social control than punishment for what would seem to be more serious violations of the criminal codes" (19).
