San Francisco Bay Area, 25.10.2014 22:50

UPDATE 10/24, 9pm: After successful blockades of Zim Line ships at the Port of Oakland in August and September, a third blockade was set to target the Zim ship Beijing on Saturday, October 25.

Organizers — remaining vigilant for a potential docking at any time during the week — have now called for a solidarity march from West Oakland BART station at 3pm, Sunday 26th, as a show of force to let Zim know that activists will be ready should the Beijing attempt to unload cargo in Oakland.

Santa Cruz Police Attempt to Discredit Leonie Sherman by Labeling Her an Anarchist

Santa Cruz, CA, 24.10.2014 22:50

Santa Cruz City Council Member Micah Posner writes: In a shocking campaign development, Deputy Chief Steve Clark labeled Santa Cruz City Council candidate Leonie Sherman an "anarchist" on the evening news due to the fact that she hung a banner at the WTO protest 15 years ago. The courage and conviction that she displayed as part of this non-violent protest are just some of the reasons why Sherman will be an excellent City Councilmember. For those of you that don't remember the WTO protest, Sherman's action was part of a successful movement on the part of tens of thousands of activists in the US and abroad to end back room deals that encouraged the abuse of workers in the 3rd world.

Individuals on the scene report excessive force was used when officers with the SCPD arrested Oliver Howard near the Court House on Water Street on the afternoon of October 13.

Call for Medical Aid Donations for Kobane

Boston, 20.10.2014 23:04

Kobane sorely needs medical supplies to maintain the defense of the city and many civilians. Doctors inside Kobane are fixing up people the best they can, including external fixation limbs mangled by gunshot wounds, but still people are bleeding to death after reaching aid stations and while being held up by Turkish border police on the way to nearby Turkish hospital. The main clinic in Kobane has been overrun by IS and later destroyed and medical care is now taking place in private homes. IS also recently burned an entire supply warehouse belonging to a local Kurdish relief organization. We've formulated a list with suggested donations that individuals and collectives can pack up and mail themselves.

Video: Tiny Houses for the Homeless

Portland, 17.10.2014 22:51

Housing should be a human right and yet is often subverted by the right to speculation. This video of Opportunity Village in Eugene Oregon shows what citizens like Pastor Bryant of the First Christian Church can do. Arnold Kunzli is an emeritus Swiss professor and author of Housing as a Human Right
 http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2003/06/266635.shtml

The cost comes down to three dollars a night per person, and one of those three dollars is paid by the villagers themselves. They all pay thirty dollars a month for their utilities, for the water, and electricity and Internet service even. So we are running this facility for two bucks a head a night.
