ANNOUNCING OUR GLOBAL ROUND-UP SERIES!
You may have noticed a few changes recently at thepeoplesrecord.com: we’ve changed our layout, added pages, switched over to our own domain and are starting to get more organized.
Along with all the new changes, we’d like to introduce our Global Round-Up series. Previously, we’ve done a few Global Round-Ups for Occupy.com, which you can see here. At the end of March, we posted our first global round-up covering the most notable international protest news month of March. We regret that we did not put one up for April at the beginning of May. But better late than never! Here it is, and look out for our Global Round-Up at the first of every month because sometimes it just helps to see just how much those of us fighting for a different kind of world do in a month. Call it Occupy or the Arab Spring or the Maple Spring or call it whatever you want. Connect the protest movements with international solidarity and the size of this list tells a very compelling story. I invite you to look back through the month of April with thepeoplesrecord.com and see how amazing it was!
April Global Round-Up
- Dozens of occupiers from San Francisco were arrested this evening after taking over a vacant building belonging to the Archdiocese of San Francisco. The group was working on turning the space into a “into a social center, shelter and food bank for the people.”
- Several hundred indignados, culture jammers and occupiers from across Europe swarmed the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) headquarters in Brussels in a bold attempt to shut it down.
- Oddly, we couldn’t find any notable protest news on the 10th of this month!
