BLOCKING THE BOAT DIARY - Aug 16 to Aug 20, 2014
 http://danielborgstrom.blogspot.com/

by Daniel Borgström

Our one-day protest became a four-day blockade of an Israeli cargo ship in the Port of Oakland. This was during the Israeli assault on Gaza, in which over 2,000 Palestinians were slaughtered. We were responding to Israel's war crimes, taking this action to very graphically show the world that Israeli ships and goods are not welcome here in the San Francisco Bay Area. I was one of the many people who walked the picket lines at the docks; this is my day-to-day account of events from the 16th to the 20th of August, 2014.


SATURDAY, AUGUST 16, 2014

We were going to march into the Port of Oakland this morning at 5 a.m. and "Block the Boat." That is, we'd set up picket lines, asking the dockworkers not to cross, not to go and unload the Israeli ship ZIM Piraeus. However, the ship changed its arrival time, presumably to avoid the picketing, so the demonstration was rescheduled for 3 p.m. This was the second time this event was rescheduled, and that was annoying. Nevertheless, I really hate getting up in the morning and so do a lot of people. It's hard to get a large number of people -- critical mass -- to come down to the port at such an hour, and in the pre-dawn darkness. There'd be a lot more people in the afternoon.

The gathering place was at the West Oakland BART Station.

Terrorism, COINTELPRO, and the Black Panther Party --An interview with law professor Angela A. Allen-Bell

Boston, 08.09.2014 23:06

In her new law journal article, “Activism Unshackled & Justice Unchained,” law professor Angela A. Allen-Bell concludes that the US government’s multi-faceted response to the BPP, primarily within the framework of the FBI’s infamous COINTELPRO, was indeed the very definition of terrorism. Bell writes that “the magnitude of the unwarranted harm done to the BPP has not yet been explored in an appropriate fashion. Much like a fugitive, it has eluded justice.” As a result, “the FBI's full-scale assault on the social movements of the 1960s and 1970s remains an open wound for the nation itself. This is more than a national tragedy; this is a human wrong."

Community Members Rally to 'Save Paula's Cottage'

Santa Cruz, CA, 08.09.2014 22:51

A Save Paula's Cottage supporter writes: "Here we rally to save one person (and her daughter) in one granny unit. Perhaps if we can help this one person, that will start the ball rolling to save others. Paula, the popular teacher, mom, and PTA president has lived in the cottage on her parents' property for 22 years without difficulty. Now, thanks to the City's UCSC backed eviction program, she has received notice to be out on September 1st or face massive fines. Paula has spoken before City Council and has actually generated a lot of sympathy from public officials, so we may have a chance to save her home."

Santa Cruz Eleven Defendants Follow the Money from Bob Lee to Wells Fargo at Latest Parade

On August 22, another energetic parade was held in support of the final four Santa Cruz Eleven defendants, who are still facing criminal charges in relation to the 2011 occupation of the vacant bank building located at 75 River Street. Wells Fargo is the so-called plaintiff in the case. Though defendants argued in court District Attorney Bob Lee should be recused from the case, due to his financial relationship with the bank, Santa Cruz judge Stephen Seigel on August 27 denied their motions and set a new trial date of July 27, 2015.

Police serve Bytemark with production order for Bristol Indymedia information

United Kingdom, 01.09.2014 22:59

Bristol Indymedia has been hosted on a Bytemark Debian virtual server since the last server seizure in 2005 [ 1 | 2 ], during the run up to the G8. From then up until November 2013 the site was running Oscailt, in March 2014 it was re-launched as a WordPress site "using the software modremoveip". On 14th August 2014 Bristol Indymedia switched off open publishing on the site for a summer break with the intention in September to "review whether we have the time and inclination to turn publishing back on".

On 27th August 2014 Bristol Indymedia reported that, "the police had a court order to access the Bristol Indymedia server. We don’t know for sure, but assume that our web hosts have complied with the order and given the police this access". Bristol Indymedia disabled open publishing on the server and said "it is unlikely that open publishing of news items will ever be re-enabled as it would require complete re-installation of the server".

Since then the only source of further information has been from an article in The Times which reported that the PACE special procedure production order obtained by Avon and Somerset Police and served on Bytemark on 15th August 2014 "demands access to the details of administrators and bill-payers, login credentials, information on those who posted articles and the IP addresses of everyone who visited the site over an unspecified period". The court order served on Bytemark hasn't been published. The Times has reported that the Police have said that, "No arrests have been made in connection with this incident".

Video: Free Nestora Salgado. One year later - Portland Protest 8.21.14

Portland, 01.09.2014 22:54

A protest rally in front of the Mexican Consulate in Portland Ore.
A demand to free Nestora Salgado after being held for over one year in solitary, in a Maximum-Security Prison in Mexico.

A small group gathered in Portland Oregon around noon on August 21 2014 in front of the Mexican Consulate office in downtown Portland.

This was an hour protest in front of the Mexican Consulate; asking the (Mexican) State authorities, who are holding a US citizen in prison to release her.
 http://youtu.be/bnsL9jP8Adc (25 minute video)

The previous protest in Portland was in December 2013 and it was recorded, you can watch it here:
 http://youtu.be/XVKrmvw_Wn8 (34 minute video)

Nestora Salgado is an indigenous leader, a naturalized U.S. citizen and political prisoner in Mexico. She was seized without an arrest warrant by Mexican federal soldiers last August and as a result of her leadership role in community policing against organized crime, which has swept through the indigenous communities of the state of Guerrero over the last several years.

Nestora was held incommunicado and transferred to a maximum security prison far away from her home community of Olinalá. For weeks, she was denied access to her attorney and visits from her family. She is being denied pain medication and physical activity she requires due to her rehabilitation from a severe auto accident.

Please sign the petition to free Nestora at --> www.tinyurl.com/nestora

After 90 Percent Decline, Federal Protection Sought for Monarch Butterfly

Santa Cruz, CA, 31.08.2014 22:53

Environmental groups filed a legal petition on August 26 to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service seeking Endangered Species Act protection for monarch butterflies, which have declined by more than 90 percent in under 20 years. During the same period it is estimated that these once-common iconic orange and black butterflies may have lost more than 165 million acres of habitat - an area about the size of Texas - including nearly a third of their summer breeding grounds.
