Support from CAUT

(from the GSOC journal)

Last Thursday, Jane Buck and Cary Nelson, the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) departing President and President-elect, were arrested along with 55 others in solidarity with our union and to protest the administration's continued refusal to negotiate. In response, the Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT) has passed a resolution in solidarity with the AAUP's support for our union. The CAUT represents more than 55,000 academic staff at over 100 universities and colleges in Canada. CAUT delegates passed the following resolution unanimously.

Resolution: Solidarity with the President and President-Elect of AAUP

Whereas the president and president-elect of the American Association of University Professors have been arrested for their participation in a peaceful act of civil disobedience in support of striking graduate assistants at New York University; and

Whereas the administration of New York University refuses to negotiate with or recognize the graduate assistants’ democratically affirmed and legal choice of union representation,

Be it resolved that CAUT Council express solidarity with the president and president-elect of the American Association of University
Professors, and convey support for their efforts to defend the rights of striking graduate assistants at New York University.

Passed unanimously by the CAUT Council

Aside from the complex physical connections that make up its infrastructure, the Internet is facilitated by bi- or multi-lateral commercial contracts (e.g., peering agreements), and by technical specifications or protocols that describe how to exchange data over the network. Indeed, the Internet is essentially defined by its interconnections and routing policies.

As of December 30, 2007, 1.319 billion people use the Internet according to Internet World Stats. Writing in the Harvard International Review, philosopher N.J. Slabbert, a writer on policy issues for the Washington, D.C.–based Urban Land Institute, has asserted that the Internet is fast becoming a basic feature of global civilization, so that what has traditionally been called "civil society" is now becoming identical with information technology society as defined by Internet use. - web design company, web designer, web design india
