Virginia Social Forum: 4th Annual Gathering of The People United

Regional Activist Gathering
Outside of Charlottesville, VA
June 22nd - 24th
Focus on War, Prisons, Immigration and Racism
(434) 906-0421

In less than 3 weeks we’ll be setting up at Shannon Farm for the 4th
Annual People United Gathering. We’ve put a lot of work into providing a
space and agenda for a great weekend of building relationships, educating
ourselves and strengthening our visions, strategies and tactics.

Inspired by the World Social Forum that over the past seven years has
brought together grassroots organizers and non-profit workers, youth,
longtime activists and cultural workers all under the banner of “Another
World is Possible!? - there will be the first ever US Social Forum this
June 27-July 1 in Atlanta, Georgia. Along with other regions across the
country, The People United is using this opportunity to build on the great
work to be done in Georgia by creating space for activists across the
state to start planning so that another Virginia is possible. If you want
to gain a regional perspective before heading off to Atlanta or want to
participate in local movement building for social justice we need you at
the Virginia Social Forum!

Support William and Mary Workers and Students!

Last November, the students of the Tidewater Labor Support Committee (TLSC) joined campus workers to oppose a proposed six-day workweek and demand a campus policy giving workers a voice in administrative decisions that affect them. The six-day workweek policy was tabled, and we were told there would be exploring of solutions as a community.

Since then, we've been talking to he administration and to the workers. Every worker we've talked to tells us conditions are bad the are understaffed, threatened with mandatory overtime and mandatory weekend hours and some have been threatened with termination for trying to unionize.

Our President admits that there are problems, but when it comes to solutions, he says his hands are tied.

What May Come: Asian Americans and the Virginia Tech Shootings

Like many, I was glued to the television news yesterday, keeping updated about the horrific shootings at Virginia Tech University. I was trying to deal with my own disgust and sadness, especially since my professional life as a graduate student and college instructor is tied to universities. And then the other shoe dropped. I found out from a friend that the news channel she was watching had reported the shooter as Asian. It has now been reported, after much confusion, that the shooter is Cho Seung-Hui, a South Korean immigrant and Virginia Tech student.
