April 23: Art Faculty protest union busting by The New School (click here for full story)

The New School fired 42 of its fine arts faculty and "wishes you well in your future endeavors."
So the faculty fought back, contacting ACT-UAW Local 7902 to set up a picket to protest the mass firings, and to work on getting part-time faculty organized.
The signs were colorful, having been made by artists, and the demo was lively and upbeat, thanks to the accompanying jazz band. See movies below.
