An Update from the Aguán Valley in Honduras

6 p.m.
Busboys and Poets

1025 Fifth Street, NW
Washington, D.C. 20001

The Aguán Valley region of Honduras has been the site of intense repression and violence in recent months, as large landholders attempt to consolidate control over land for palm oil plantations and U.S.-funded police and military collaborate with private guards to violently destroy entire communities. Seventeen campesinos have been murdered in just the past few months in a human rights emergency that has received little international attention. The government of Porfirio "Pepe" Lobo, meanwhile, continues to receive accolades from the U.S. government for its supposed “progress” on human rights--despite the fact that the killers in the Aguán have gone unpunished and military forces are responsible for much of the repression.

In Defense of the Social Safety Net

6:00 - 8:30 p.m.
Martin Luther King Labor Center
310 West 43rd Sreet
#1199 Auditorium
NY, NY 10036

Safety net programs are in peril. In November, the congressional super committee will announce draconian cuts. In New York, the governor and the mayor blame government austerity policies on the pensions and health benefits of public employees. And at CUNY, adjunct health care is threatened. The time for push back is now. The Professional Staff Congress' Safety Net Working Group hosted a forum titled "Call to Action: Defend the Social Safety Net." CEPR Co-Director Dean Baker was the keynote speaker, followed by a panel including James Parrott of the Fiscal Policy Institute, Kim Phillips-Fein of New York University and Frances Fox-Piven of the CUNY Graduate Center.
