Tonight, Weds., July 25, 6:30-8 p.m.
Farmworker Justice Rally and Post Card Drop Off at Chipotle
For six years, Chipotle has refused to come to the table with Coalition of Immokalee Workers to sign a Fair Food Agreement, securing labor protections for workers in the fields of Florida. Despite all of the promotion of having “sustainable vegetables” and cage-free, anti-biotic free meat, Chipotle is still selling Food WithOUT Integrity.
Location: Chipotle at 17th St & Broadway (864 Broadway)

Tonight, Weds., July 25, 7 p.m. (EST)
Phone Conference: NATO5 National Campaign planning meeting
Occupy Chicago, organizers of the May anti-NATO protests in Chicago and defenders of civil liberties are assembling a coalition of individuals and organizations from around Chicago and the nation.
Access: Conference call number for out-of-towners: 218-844-0850, access code 934356#

Thurs., July 26, 7 p.m.
Revolution and Imperialism in Syria
The claims of Western governments and mainstream media on the one hand, and those who still believe Assad’s “anti-imperialist” rhetoric on the other, leave much confusion about where the Syrian revolution came from and where it’s going. What is the role of the various forces in the opposition? What would Western intervention mean for the fate of the Revolution?
Location: NYU’s Puck Bldg., 295 Lafayette Street, Sociology Dept, 4th floor

Tues., July 31, 8 a.m.
Drop the Charges Against Jazz Hayden
Joseph “Jazz” Hayden is currently facing felony charges – and potentially years in prison – as a result of an unlawful stop and search of his car last December. This stop and arrest was in retaliation for his work as a Citizen Reporter aggressively covering police/community relationships in the Harlem community. (Visit to view four years of coverage of police community relations in Harlem.)
Location: 100 Centre Street in Manhattan, Part F
