El movimiento "Occupy" y la deuda estudiantil: los estudiantes hacen un llamado a no pagar la deuda por préstamos mientras las universidades aumentan la matrícula


El lunes fue un día de acción para los estudiantes universitarios de ambas costas enojados por el aumento del costo de la matrícula y la represión de las últimas manifestaciones. En California, los estudiantes impidieron transitoriamente que se realizara una reunión del Consejo de Regentes de la Universidad de California, en señal de protesta contra una serie de aumentos de la matrícula y la respuesta violenta a las manifestaciones en la Universidad de California en Berkeley y en Davis. Recelosos de las manifestaciones multitudinarias, los regentes de cuatro campus diferentes se reunieron por teleconferencia, pero se vieron obligados a cambiar tres de los cuatro lugares de reunión porque se encontraban con estudiantes que cantaban consignas. En la ciudad de Nueva York, cerca de mil estudiantes marcharon frente al lugar donde se hacía una reunión en la que los síndicos de City University de Nueva York votaron a favor de los aumentos anuales de matrícula hasta el año 2015. Estas fueron las últimas protestas de la larga batalla contra los aumentos de matrícula y los recortes en educación que empezaron en los campus de la Universidad de California hace dos años y se extendieron rápidamente a todo el país. Hablamos con dos invitados que ayudaron a lanzar la campaña de compromiso de no pagar la deuda llamada "Campaña por la deuda de los estudiantes del movimiento 'Occupy'", que pide a los estudiantes firmantes que no paguen la deuda por préstamos estudiantiles hasta que se aplique una serie de reformas de educación, entre ellas la educación pública y gratuita. Pamela Brown es una estudiante de doctorado en sociología en New School University y Andrew Ross es profesor de análisis social y cultural en la Universidad de Nueva York.

DEMOCRACY NOW!:


El campo de batalla de EE.UU.: los ciudadanos estadounidenses podrían ser detenidos indefinidamente por las fuerzas armadas según un proyecto de ley de defensa presentado ante el Senado


Está previsto que esta semana el Senado vote un proyecto de ley sobre los gastos del Pentágono que podría marcar el comienzo de una expansión radical de las detenciones indefinidas hechas por el gobierno de EE.UU. Una disposición de la Ley de Autorización de Defensa Nacional podría permitir que las fuerzas armadas detengan a cualquier persona que consideren sospechosa de terrorismo —en cualquier lugar del mundo— sin cargos ni juicio. La medida ampliaría de manera efectiva la definición de lo que se considera el "campo de batalla" de las fuerzas armadas, llevándola a cualquier parte del mundo, incluso dentro de Estados Unidos. Sus autores, el senador demócrata Carl Levin de Michigan y el senador republicano John McCain de Arizona, han estado haciendo campaña para su aprobación en un esfuerzo conjunto de ambos partidos. Pero la Casa Blanca amenazó con vetar la medida, con el apoyo de importantes funcionarios, entre ellos el secretario de Defensa Leon Panetta, el Director de Inteligencia Nacional James Clapper y el director del FBI Robert Mueller. "Esta sería la primera vez desde la época de McCarthy que el Congreso de Estados Unidos trata de hacer esto", afirma nuestra invitada, Daphne Eviatar de Human Rights First, que ha reunido las firmas de 26 importantes militares retirados instando al Senado a votar contra dicha medida, así como contra otra disposición que derogaría la orden ejecutiva que prohíbe la tortura. "En este caso, hemos visto que el gobierno muy ansiosamente mantiene a la gente sin juicio durante más de 10 años en cárceles militares, por lo tanto no hay motivos para creer que no vayan a hacer lo mismo aquí. Así que estamos hablando de la detención militar indefinida de ciudadanos estadounidenses, de residentes legales en EE.UU., así como de personas que viven en el extranjero".
