- Out of Our Schools
- Picture: An estimated 130 high school and college students marched on three military recruiting offices in Northgate, the University District, and the Central District of Seattle on Monday, telling staff to stay out of the city’s schools and calling for adequate funds for education, not war. Student organizer Emily Reilly, 24, says the disruption, which led to office closures of as long as two hours, “was a great victory to have an action lead entirely by youth, with youth of color in leadership positions. And not only calling for an end to the war in Iraq but for fundamental changes in the way our society works here.”

Congress: Don’t Stack the Deck Against Poor Families
- Issue: Last month, at the request of the President’s Department of Housing and Urban Development, members of Congress introduced S.771 and H.R. 1999. These bills, known as the “State and Local Housing Flexibility Act of 2005,” will reduce housing support for people with the lowest incomes and increase homelessness.
