Oakland Activists Accused of Freeing Animals Are Charged as Terrorists

San Francisco Bay Area, 27.07.2015 22:49

The year 2013 was a busy one for animal liberation actions across the U.S., primarily at businesses that breed and/or sell fur. Tyler Lang and Kevin Johnson of Los Angeles recently pled guilty and currently await sentencing for a related charge of violating the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act (AETA). On July 24, the FBI arrested two more animal rights activists related to the string of 2013 actions. Joseph Buddenburg and Nicole Kissane of Oakland were charged under AETA for 2013 actions. A call-out for support for Joseph and Nicole has gone out for their court appearance on July 28 at the Oakland Federal Courthouse.

Нет работы? Низкая зарплата? Проблемы в личной жизни?! - 'Нация' нам не поможет!

Belarus, 25.07.2015 22:21

Мы представляем вам перевод текста, написанного Энгри Воркерс Ворлд на сайте либкома. Хотя в тексте и есть отсылки к Великобритании и специфическим для региона проблемам, мы считаем, что для Беларуси текст имеет довольно большую ценность: сейчас в стране мы наблюдаем рост национализма, с другой стороны огромное количество рабочих выехало за границу в поисках лучшей жизни. Данный текст подымает вопросы, с которыми сталкиваются многие рабочие по всему миру.

Общество, в котором ‘прибыль’ – основная движущая сила, а разрыв между богатыми и бедными продолжает расти, крайне нестабильно. С 2008 года мы живем в состоянии мирового кризиса: после спасения банков и сокращений расходов выросла безработица, людям приходится переезжать в поисках работы, и все больше людей претендует на все меньшее количество рабочих мест. Но мы также увидели по всему миру рост борьбы против сворачивания ‘социального’ государства, против ‘коррумпированного правительства’ и против…

IWW Member Acquitted on All Charges

Boston, 23.07.2015 22:52

On Tuesday July 21, IWW member Jason was cleared of all the phony charges dating from an arrest in November 2013. Jason was falsely charged with assaulting a cop, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct after Cambridge and Harvard Police attacked an IWW picket at Insomnia Cookies. Workers at Insomnia went on strike in August 2013 over below minimum wage pay and illegal denial of breaks. Their demands included $15/hr, health care, and a union. The strike was later settled with strikers receiving back pay and offers of re-employment.

The end of capitalism

Portland, 20.07.2015 22:49

Without us noticing, we are entering the postcapitalist era. At the heart of further change to come is information technology, new ways of working and the sharing economy. The old ways will take a long while to disappear, but it's time to be utopian.
www.openculture.com gives us 700 free movies, 700 free E-books and 450 free audio books. The information economy is an economy of abundance that challenges the past economy of scarcity.

Why should we not form a picture of the ideal life, built out of abundant information, non-hierarchical work and the dissociation of work from wages\?

Rock Paper Scissors Being Displaced After More Than Ten Years on Telegraph Avenue

San Francisco Bay Area, 16.07.2015 22:49

Founding member of the First Friday Oakland Art Murmur Rock Paper Scissors Collective writes: With a little volunteer elbow-grease and fundraising effort, the Rock Paper Scissors Collective (RPSC) was born - a destination where the community could come together, organize, share skills, knowledge and create. Now, we are being forced out of our space. The Collective's long time landlord plans to charge market value for the space, well beyond what we can afford as an all-volunteer run nonprofit. As of August 31st, RPS will be without a home.

SF Pride Weekend Follows Historic Supreme Court Ruling on Marriage Equality

San Francisco Bay Area, 09.07.2015 22:50

Same-sex weddings took place across the country after the Supreme Court ruled on June 26 that all 50 states must now permit LGBTQ couples "the fundamental right to marry." After the Supreme Court's historic ruling on marriage equality, many LGBT organizers are now redirecting their attention to obtaining federal, state and local legal protections in areas of employment, housing and commerce. Locally, activists want to shift the focus to issues that LGBT immigrants and prisoners face in detention centers across the U.S.

Final decisions had been made about adding more exceptions to the "Sidewalk Management"

Portland, 08.07.2015 22:49

Commissioner Novick (and members of City Council):

We were quite disturbed to receive information from your aide Bryan Hockaday that final decisions had been made about adding more exceptions to the "Sidewalk Management Ordinance" without broad public input, and particularly without apparent outreach to actual homeless persons who might be affected by the decision.
Portland Copwatch contacted you on January 26th after learning that the Portland Business Alliance was asking for a large number of new "homeless-free zones." (That email is attached, below.) In that letter we recommended that decisions about adding exclusions should be considered publicly, perhaps by the oversight committee that was required when the SMO was adopted but which was disbanded in 2012. Yet now we've read in the Portland Mercury that outreach was done to a small number of homeless advocacy organizations and the decision was made behind closed doors.
