Build gardens not prisons

United Kingdom, 04.10.2015 22:51

The campaign against a new mega-prison being built near Wrexham got a boost recently when the Reclaim the Fields network held an action camp nearby.

The Reclaim the Fields International Action Camp, attended by 100-150 people, ran from 28th August to the 2nd September 2015 and was hosted by a local anti-fracking site. Workshops explored the links between land struggles, prison abolition and other issues including gender, animal liberation and freedom of movement.

People held evening noise demos at three prisons in the region in solidarity with those inside, leafletted the local town, and picketed several companies involved in the mega-prison. Finally a blockade of the construction site held up lorries for over 4 hours without any arrests.

As anyone with experience of them knows, prisons are abusive places used to control and threaten people, particularly those of us who are working class, people of colour, or disobedient. We need justice processes based on strong, vibrant communities, not more prisons and cops harming our communities.

The new prison would be the biggest in the UK, and the second biggest in Europe. It aims to open in 2017 and would give the State enough cages to lock up an extra 2100 people.

Meanwhile, Robert King of the Angola 3 will give a talk on struggle and revolution in the US prison system, on Wed 16 Sep in Dundee.

A Christian denomination founded on the right to own slaves steals property from a historically African-American church in North Portland; then sells it to a predominantly Caucasian church in Gresham for a $200,000 profit. All while leaving the founding pastor's elderly wife penniless.

Why are we hearing about this almost a decade later from an outfit in New Jersey and not our local press\?
PORTLAND, OREGON — There are ways to sell a church property legally, procedures dictated by state law and church bylaws. Typically, they require a formal vote by the congregation. [...]

The following is my poetic description of the reality of homelessness.

.Wicked renters of capitalism!
.Raising rents, increasing mortgage rates
.Forcing families, elders, women and children in the cold on the street in tents!
.Working 9-5, surviving 24/7, feverishly, fiercely, tiressly, endlessly!
.Carrying houses on our backs. Sidewalks beneath our feet is how we sleep. Sidewalks our shelter!

Oct 2nd: Go to Seattle. Storm UW.

Portland, 04.10.2015 22:50

What: March on University of Washington
When: October 2nd, 2pm
Where: Red Square, UW Campus

On April 25, the grassroots animal liberation movement came together for a March on UW of 500 people. People from Seattle and across the country, people who are new to the movement and people who are movement veterans, people who answered the call to show the University of Washington that there is mass public opposition to the plans to build a new underground animal lab.

On October 2, the grassroots animal liberation movement must come together once again for a second March on UW. This second march must take the passion and energy of the first march and push it further. At the first march, we rallied under the chant of "If you build it, we will come!" We have shown that we will come to office protests, we will come to home demonstrations, we will come to the site of the lab and shut it down. And so now the chant that we rally under is "We will stop this lab!"

Be there on October 2. Show the University of Washington and Skanska USA that mass public opposition means opposition that they can't stop. Show them that we will not sit by and watch as they dig an underground grave for animals, but that we will take over the streets and we will stop the lab.

On September 17, the first move-in day for Fall quarter at UC Santa Cruz, students and community members at the main entrance of campus displayed signs opposing Senate Concurrent Resolution 35 (SCR 35), which was introduced this year in the California Senate. On its surface SCR 35 is legislation that addresses anti-Semitism on the University of California campuses, but critics caution the measure has the potential to limit the free speech activities of those seeking justice for Palestine.
