DUMP and RUN
Dump and Run is an innovative program which collects
studentsí unwanted items at the end of the school year and resells them
the next fall at a heavily discounted price. The proceeds from the sale
are then donated to a charity. Dump and Run has previously been run
at the University of Richmond, the results were
more than impressive. This year the Columbia Greens will be helping
a local charity, the Harlem Restoration Project. Everybody wins:
the environment, the students, and the charity.
are needed for the spring and fall semesters.

STOP the FREE TRADE AREA of the AMERICAS (FTAA)
In April 2001 the leaders of every "free democratic" country in North America met to discuss the Free Trade Area of the Americas, the proposed expansion of NAFTA to the entire Western Hemisphere (with the exception of Cuba). FTAA would establish the largest free trade area in the world, an area without any tariffs or government intervention in international trade. The effect would be to guarantee the free reign of globalization and its evils (and supposed goods like the enrichment of corporations) thoughout the Western Hemisphere.
Tension in the 99.5 WBAI crisis is heating up everyday. More censorship, more firings, and John Murdock and the corporate Pacifica Board or directors are pushing a new set of bylaws that would allow them to sell the station. We must resist this corporate takeover of WBAI, and mobilize to save one of the last voices of the progressive community in NYC.
DROP THE ROCKEFELLER DRUG LAWS
The Rockefeller Drug Laws are wasteful, unjust, ineffective, and racially
Enacted in 1973 when Nelson Rockefeller was governor, the Rockefeller Drug Laws require harsh prison terms for the possession or sale of relatively small amounts of drugs. The harshest provision of this statute mandates that a judge impose a prison term of no less than 15 years to life for anyone convicted of selling 2 ounces or possessing 4 ounces of a narcotic substance. The penalties apply without regard to the circumstances of the offense or the individual's character or background, making it irrelevant whether the person is a first-time or repeat offender.
