UCSC Student Government Resolution for Wage Parity
AFSCME Wage Parity Resolution
In January 2007, the official (Regent-endorsed) student government of UC Santa Cruz, the Student Union Assembly, unanimously approved a resolution demanding that low-paid workers receive wages in accordance with other nearby institutions. The UC promised thousands of dollars to the lowest paid workers, many of which are members of AFSCME 3299, yet, up to this date, have not released this money. 36 people, including workers and students from Berkeley, Irvine, Davis, Santa Barbara, Santa Cruz, and San Francisco, were arrested outside the UC Office of the President on February 15th, while hundreds rallied in support both on-site in Oakland, as well as at a rally at UC Santa Cruz.

US Jails and Anti-Immigrant Practices
Report on the Incarceration of Families and Individuals
Semillas writes: Both the federal government and coporate America simultaneously implement violations of human rights and support language, ideas, and practices that justify the hatred of immigrants, to maintain profits and political power. This is a summary of reports about jails where la Migra (ICE) detains families and individuals suspected of violating U.S. immigration law. You will find links to information regarding current conditions of incarceration provoked by U.S. immigration law and lived by those incarcerated.
