Here's a new one, "The Native and the Refugee": http://thepublicschool.org/node/38266

An open research platform initiated by Matt Peterson & Malek Rasamny to investigate the experiences of Palestinian refugee camps and American Indian reservations. Through the Public School, we will organize and host discussions, screenings, and reading groups, to help compile and share our ongoing research and engagement on the history and horizon of the shared struggle of Indians and Palestinians for autonomy.

Hi friends.
The plan for second iteration of this class is a casual meeting in the middle of May Day to continue having conversation about precarious, informal, immaterial labor. We hope to make an inviting atmosphere for new comers and random encounters. Feel free to bring snacks, art projects, ideas, books, etc

we can look at general plan for the day at http://maydaynyc.org/may-day-2012

It seems like best plan to meet in Bryant Park and head down to Union Square around 2pm. There are steps between the park and the Library. If we can hold TPSNY sign, some of us can meet there by 1:30pm? I imagine it will be a very busy space.
