Students are joining a huge coalition of labor, community and progressive groups for a week of protests in New York to mitigate Mayor Bloomberg's budget cuts with fair-share taxes for banks and millionaires. These kids are great. Maybe there's hope after all. More video here.

"Make them pay! J.P Morgan! Goldman Sachs! Make them pay!" - kids chanting on Wall Street, an activity they've chosen over, like, playing video games or cruising the mall.

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
