Vignette reflection on vigil at SOA/Whinsec written while in fear that the murder of Danilo Anderso, State Prosecutor in Venezueala, may have been committed by an Soa/Whinsec graduate and thus is my fault for paying taxes.

Campaign to challenge Grand Rapids TV FCC license renewals

Michigan, 22.11.2004 22:12

With the 2004 elections over we are now able to provide the community with some initial data on the amount and type of Election Coverage on the three Grand Rapids-based TV stations - WOOD TV 8, WZZM 13 & WXMI 17 [read the Election Coverage 2004 Summary].

This year’s data reflects what we have been documenting for six years, that when it comes to local races or races not deemed as “high profile” or “hotly contested,” limited or no coverage is provided. Plenty of attention is given to the Presidential race, but that information can be found in almost any media outlet. Where local TV news plays it’s most important role is in covering the local races and ballot initiatives.



25 de Noviembre, Día Internacional por la No Violencia Contra la Mujer

Euskal Herria, 22.11.2004 22:00

El 25 de noviembre de 1960 sigue vivo en nuestro recuerdo.
http://www.lasdignas.org.sv/25noviembre.htm

El 25 de noviembre del 2004 las mujeres caminamos con la cabeza erguida y continuamos mirando al frente; encaramos el futuro con las palmas de las manos extendidas. En este día renovamos nuestras fuerzas y con un gran NO dejamos constancia de nuestro rechazo:

al femicidio,
a la violencia intrafamiliar,
a las violaciones,
a los maltratos,
a los secuestros,
a los abusos,
al acoso sexual,
al machismo,
al sexismo,
y a todas las demás agresiones que vulneran los derechos humanos básicos,
los derechos sexuales y los derechos reproductivos.

Porque seguiremos luchando hasta que consigamos vivir en tolerancia, en igualdad de hecho, en igualdad de derecho, en igualdad de oportunidades y en igualdad de género.

Con motivo de la celebración del día internacional contra la violencia hacia las mujeres, la Plataforma 25 de Noviembre de Bilbo ha organizado numerosas actividades.

Fixing Broken Promises; City calls hearing on Bike Safety

Boston, 22.11.2004 20:42

The flowery, warm prose of the Bicycle Friendly Communities 2003 awards report would make a Boston bike commuter’s heart skip a beat. “The [bike path] network grew to over 240 miles… More than one-quarter of the city’s arterial streets have striped bike lanes or shoulders… bicycle access is fully integrated into the city’s light rail and bus system... Bicycle parking is provided [everywhere]… Motorists and bicyclists are educated to share the road…” What kind of utopian village is this? Well it’s not in Scandinavia, but it is in Boston’s U.S. polar opposite attitude-wise, Portland Oregon, land of the smiley happy people. It may be hard to view the streets of Boston through the golden lenses of Portland’s bicycle La-La land, but there are still a few folks who can catch a wink of it if they squint and throw off their eye focus on a bright sunny day. These are Boston’s bike visionaries. They see Boston in terms of how it could be. Some have 10, 20, 30 years of advocacy under their belts, and precious little city-built biking infrastructure to show for it. “Getting a few ribbon racks takes ten years.” Says Carl Kurz, Organizer of Bikes-not-Bombs, “In the twenty years that I’ve been here there’s been a little over two or three blocks of bike lanes put in on the actual streets.” Back in 1999, Boston was rated the least bike friendly city in the country by Bicycling magazine. The city council reacted. Mayor Menino jumped. The mayor vowed to fix the problems by instating a “Bike Czar” to address pedaler’s grievances. But the title wasn’t official. And other responsibilities were folded into the job description. Paul Shimeck, the man with the job, felt like his hands were tied. Then he was laid-off. Now Maura Hennigan, Boston City Councilor at-large and Menino-critic number one, wants the mayor to fulfill his original promises. Tonight, [Monday Nov. 22nd 5:30pm-see below] Councilor Hennigan and the rest of the Council will hear the communities problems, misgivings and suggestions on the topic of Bike safety and whether t reinstate the Bike Czar.

[ Map: Ohio Election Incidents | Ohio High Court On Election 2004 ]

Litigating the ElectionFrom the open publishing newswire: Without much fanfare, a number of lawyers are busy mounting court challenges to the election. Lawsuits have been filed and other actions are being taken in Ohio and Florida, the two key electoral states. Members of Congress have demanded a General Accountability Office investigation of the election. The largest Freedom of Information Act request in the nation's history has been launched, and other efforts are in the works. read more >>Local activists thank Indymedia for sElection Fraud stories; Invite others to join their fightFrom the open publishing newswire: Given the certainty that Diebold has been rigging American elections in the past, the extreme likelihood that election fraud occurred on November 2nd becomes an absolute certainty. Indymedia is therefore to be complimented for its seminal valiance in reporting what the rest of the media are attempting to cover up. Indymedia is a friend of the people in their effort to restore the conditions of independence upon which this country was first founded. Indymedia represents the true America. Until the rest of the media follow the lead of such valiant champions of the people as Indymedia and the SF Bay View, the cravenly unresponsive rest of the media are to be held in contempt by the sovereign American people.

Join us at Action Speaks in our intensely urgent struggle to restore the defrauded American people to its rightful, very American position of sovereignty.

Homophobia: A Social Disease

Portland, 22.11.2004 05:12

There are no queer teen suicides, only queer teen murders. Anyone who espouses anti-gay rhetoric, anyone who says it's unnatural to love someone of the same sex, anyone who calls someone a faggot or a dyke maliciously, anyone who does not challenge heterosexuality as a cultural norm, is implicated in the deaths of queer teenagers who take their own lives. Those deaths are not suicides, they're murders. The young people are just doing to their bodies what others have already done to their souls. They don't kill themselves. Christians kill them. Television writers kill them. Big Red gum commercials kill them. Their parents kill them. Their schools kill them. I kill them and so do you.

We need to move beyond confronting homophobia to challenging heterosexism. When we don't challenge exclusionary sex education lessons, when we don't cross dress, when we don't act on our sexual desires and curiosities, when we are ignorant about intersexuality and transgenderism, we are braiding the nooses upon which queer teens hang.
