SAT word of the day: accuse (verb) to charge with wrong doing, misconduct,
or error




*1. BART tickets are here for pickup.  Come to D224 at lunchtime. 


2. Interested in going to Law School? Are you an activist who believes in
Restorative Justice? Do you think students should have a voice in discipline
issues at Berkeley High? Then check out the Student Court! Join the fight
against the school-to-prison pipeline which feeds the American
prison-industrial complex. Many are not aware the USA has more people behind
bars than any other country in the entire world. Our democratic values of
Justice and Liberty have been hijacked by corporate interests; and it is up
to youth activists to bring about the necessary change. For more info about
the Student Court come by H104! Enrollment for the Student Court Leadership
Class is currently open for the Spring semester. Participants will receive 5
units of elective credit. Under-represented minority youth are especially
encouraged to join the cause.

relevant today as ever.  This is the gospel according to Judas Iscariot, who
betrayed Jesus.  Judas tells his side of the story in this contemporary,

wild spectacle.  What if Jesus showed up on Telegraph Avenue today?
