Santa Cruz Food Not Bombs Plan Meal and Overnight Vigil at City Hall

Santa Cruz, CA, 28.06.2011 22:50

The City of Orlando, Florida is being sued in court over a city law that has effectively made it illegal for any group to feed more than 25 people at a time in downtown parks without a permit. Over the past month, more than 20 members of Food Not Bombs, including Keith McHenry who helped found the organization, have been arrested for providing free meals to the poor and homeless. Acting in defense of First Amendment rights, in solidarity with Keith McHenry, and to end the criminalization of poverty, Food Not Bombs-Santa Cruz is planning a free meal, event and overnight vigil on Thursday, June 30th outside Santa Cruz City Hall.

Modesto Solidarity Network Fights Illegal Lockout

San Francisco Bay Area, 27.06.2011 06:39

Modesto Solidarity Network's first campaign was against EXIT Reality, a company with various offices around Modesto and Northern California. The fight was centered around the "illegal lockout" of a renter from their apartment. In California, an illegal lockout refers to the practice of landlords changing locks and harassing or threatening tenants until they leave their homes even though they have not been 'legally" given a 30-days notice. Such a practice is wide spread among Modesto landlords, so it is hoped that this action is only a sign of more to come.



Book Bloc for Oakland Libraries

San Francisco Bay Area, 27.06.2011 05:40

Bay of Rage writes Last Friday [June 17th], we marched on downtown banks behind a bloc of book shields in an anti-capitalist defense of the Oakland libraries. Tensions were high throughout the afternoon and the action quickly escalated into a showdown with police that took many off guard. We started assembling at Broadway and Telegraph in downtown Oakland at 3pm last Friday. There were about 60 of us. It was immediately clear that OPD had been monitoring the Bay of Rage website and was out in full force to crush the march.



Labor Supporters Protest Proposed Bill that would Eliminate Collective Bargaining

San Francisco Bay Area, 27.06.2011 04:55

Three San Jose Council Members and Mayor Chuck Reed are pushing for a bill that would strip city workers of benefits and take away their collective bargaining rights. Activists say the proposed bill is similar to the attacks on workers' rights that were recently rammed through Wisconsin's legislature by an anti-labor governor. On June 23rd, they called for an end to the City's union-busting tactics in a loud rally in front of City Hall.

Deportation flight to Iraq blockaded and stopped

United Kingdom, 26.06.2011 19:39

No Borders and refugee solidarity activists blockaded the Harmondsworth and Colnbrook immigration prisons, near Heathrow airport on 21 June to stop a mass deportation flight to Baghdad. About 70 Iraqi refugees, mostly Kurds, were due to be forcibly flown on a specially chartered flight from an undisclosed airport at 11pm. A last-minute court injunction forced the Home Office to call it off, so the blockaders decided to end their protest at 9pm, after making sure that the migration prisoners were safely off the buses. The action was an important step in escalating resistance to the deportation machine, in solidarity with the hunger strikers in Campsfield, the rioters in Brook House, the Yarlswood four, and all migration prisoners in their everyday struggle.



Prisoners Plan Hunger Strike at Pelican Bay in Crescent City

San Francisco Bay Area, 26.06.2011 18:58

Prisoners in the Security Housing Unit (SHU) at Pelican Bay State Prison in Crescent City, California announced that they are beginning an indefinite hunger strike on July 1st, 2011 to protest the conditions of their imprisonment, which they say are cruel and inhumane. An online petition has been started by supporters of the strikers. Key demands include the elimination of group punishments, modification of active/inactive gang status criteria, and the provision of adequate food.



Rochester's Puerto Rican Festival--Unwelcoming to Other Latinos!

Rochester, 26.06.2011 18:36

Last month, Ida Perez, who writes for La Voz newspaper, decided to take some shots at me in her column. She called me out on my May debut column, in which I confronted White America's Racism and Prejudice against Latinos. As a filmmaker, who has exposed Police Brutality and Misconduct, here in my hometown of Rochester, I am used to controversy. I'm also known to confront and speak out on issues when most people are afraid to do so. So while I respect this writer's opinion, I think it was a little "out of class", to call me out, another fellow writer and contributor to La Voz.

In her article, titled "Racism Among Our Own" the writer points out how Latinos are very divided within our own cultures. The writer even uses the word "segregation" to describe the division among different Latino cultures. I think it's a little hypocritical of this writer to say these things, especially since the writer sits on the board of the Puerto Rican Festival. A festival who has been around for 42 years! And a festival who clearly, by its name, practices it's own form of divisiveness, and exclusion of all Latino cultures, except Puerto Ricans.

Sachsens Grundrechte fließen weiter elbabwärts

Germany, 26.06.2011 15:32

Nach der von den verantwortlichen Sächsischen Staatsministern gehaltenen Pressekonferenz am Freitag werden immer mehr Details der umfassenden Telekommunikationüberwachung bekannt. So seien am 18. bzw. 19. Februar auf Grund mehrerer Ermittlungsverfahren insgesamt bis zu einer Millionen Datensätze gespeichert und ausgewertet worden. Das Ziel der völlig überzogenen Ermittlungen waren jedoch nicht nur einige wenige Straftaten von linken Demonstrantinnen und Demonstranten, sondern darüber hinaus auch mehrere zehntausend Bürgerinnen und Bürger die in unmittelbarer Nähe zu den Geschehnissen am 19. Februar telefoniert oder Nachrichten geschrieben hatten. Zahlreiche politisch Verantwortliche der Proteste kündigten in eigenen Stellungnahmen Beschwerden und Klagen gegen die Dresdner Staatsanwaltschaft und das zuständige Amtsgericht an. Sie riefen die Bevölkerung dazu auf, mit einem Musterschreiben (ganz unten) Aufklärung über mögliche Ermittlungen zu erhalten.

Support the hunger strike at Pelican Bay prison, starting July 1st.

Portland, 25.06.2011 20:26

Dear Friends and Comrades,

On July 1st, 50-100 prisoners at Pelican Bay State Prison in Northern California will begin an indefinite hunger strike to protest the tortuous and inhumane conditions of their imprisonment. Pelican Bay is notorious for it's repressive methods of solitary confinement (like the SHU, i.e. Security Housing Unit). The CA Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation prides itself on Pelican Bay being "the end of the line," and is part of a continuation since the 1960's of prisons using solitary confinement as a main tactic to crush rebellion and resistance.

As anti-authoritarians and anarchists, this is a crucial moment to show our solidarity with those on the inside who are ready to die in their fight for dignity and the most basic necessities of life that the state continues to deny. This will be the third major hunger strike in a US prison in the past year and those of us fighting on the outside need to make a visible show of support for this wave of prisoner-led organizing.

"The passion for freedom is stronger than any prison"

Brian Haw 7/1/49 - 18/6/11 RIP

United Kingdom, 25.06.2011 15:56

Early on Saturday morning 18 June 2011, veteran peace protester Brian Haw, 62, passed away just after the camp he established right opposite the Houses of Parliament had celebrated its tenth anniversary of highly visible opposition to the wars being waged on ordinary people. Brian had been suffering from lung cancer, diagnosed less than a year ago.

SchNEWS 776: Squatting at Heaven's Door

United Kingdom, 25.06.2011 15:56

As Tories threaten hallowed ancient squatting rights.

As expected: Following the opportunistic yelps of a jumped-up tory media-whore (see SchNEWS 764), against the background of a right-wing ideological crusade, the criminalisation of squatting is now on parliament’s agenda. This week the government announced a brief consultation period was under-way on the issue of occupation without authorisation. The sights of the Tory legislative blunderbuss are slowly being zeroed in, battle lines are being drawn and arguments rehearsed. As every day goes by, the corporate press prejudice people further against one of the few remaining laws that empowers the many against the few.

The squatting community and it’s supporters have to fight their corner without the benefit of funds, media presence or political influence - they must work from the ground up and rely on the ability of people (and in this case, worryingly, politicians) to judge fairly between logical arguments. Some squatters have already risen to the challenge - Squattastic is an irregular though frequent series of open meetings, held in a chain of different squatted properties, mainly in the London area to discuss ways in which this crack down can be combated.

In a more mainstream stylee - The SQUASH Campaign is a dedicated group of activists and researchers who have already given a briefing to Parliament attacking the proposed change to the law - this was presented on May the 18th and was attended and supported by several well-known groups involved with homelessness issues, including Crisis and Shelter.

La Casita Supporters Renew Sit-In Protest after CPS Calls Off Deal

Chicago, 24.06.2011 03:09

In the summer and early fall of 2010, parents, students and concerned citizens fought on behalf of La Casita, the fieldhouse of Whittier Elementary School in Chicago's Pilsen Neighborhood. The Chicago Public Schools opted to demolish the building, though the community fought back with a 44-day occupation, and won the terms they had demanded.

In recent days, the Chicago Public Schools, run by a new neoliberal transplant, opted to rescind the original deal, arriving with a wrecking crew. The community has responded with vigor, restarting the sit-in and calling for support.

What The Hell Is The Matter With This Council?

Portland, 24.06.2011 01:52

Let's have the cop screw with everyone!
What The Hell Is The Matter With This Council?

We were outside the City Council for our weekly protest against Portland joining the Joint Terrorist Task Force, The Sit-Lie ordinance and the water rate increase when Dan from Cop-Watch told us of a woman who was going to confront the Council about being harassed by a Portland Police Officer when she sat down to rest at the 6th Ave. Max station. She had her young son in a stroller and decided to sit on the stone wall that surrounds the Federal Courthouse. There were other people sitting, so she thought it would be OK for her to rest for a time. The new Sit-Lie (Lie) ordinance makes this illegal, even if you are just going to rest for a few minutes. A police officer approached her and ordered her off the wall in a way that upset her so much that she took the time to come before the City Council to report the incident and maybe hope for an apology; what she got was BS.

Our mayor thanked her for coming in his normal dismissive way. Fish and Saltzman had the good sense to be quiet but not our Amanda. Commissioner Fritz thanked her for coming and made a statement that cause my head to hurt. She thanked the woman for reporting the incident and added that the city has been criticized for using the new ordinance against just "Houseless" persons and it was good that the police were being even handed when telling people to move. I almost threw up my breakfast. After the woman completed her story I applauded and that caused our dear mayor to tell me that applauding was not allowed. I said something about him being a dictator and did my Irish walk-out and rejoined my friend outside to continue our protest.

The thought I had when leaving the council chamber was, we now have equal harassment of our citizens by the police, "Isn't that special!" First and foremost, the police have questionable jurisdiction here because the wall in question surrounding the Federal Courthouse is federal property and it is the Federal Marshals that have jurisdiction, not the PoPo. In our tight budget times it seems the cops should just deal with their responsibilities and not go shopping for new work.



Putting an end to human rights for corporations

Portland, 24.06.2011 01:52

Move to Amend had an activist training this weekend as we gear up to limit the rights of corporations. Corporations are entitled to legal rights, but not human rights.

20 people spent all day Saturday at the First Unitarian Church in downtown Portland training to help the movement to limit corporate personhood. The training was lead by David Cobb, a former practicing attorney and former 2004 Green Party presidential candidate. Cobb has been working on the corporate personhood issue for nearly a dozen years and shared a tremendous amount of knowledge and expertise about both the history that brought us to this point in time and the current state of the campaign.

Because corporations have been given human rights through legal opinions and court cases, the only way for us to strip corporations of their human rights is through a constitutional amendment or, a reversal of a variety of Supreme Court decisions. Amending the constitution will likely take 10-20 years.

In the meantime, an effort is underway to get local initiatives on the ballot across the country asking voters whether they believe corporations should be given human rights as enumerated in the Bill of Rights. This is something we could accomplish in Portland over the next 2-3 years. Polling shows that this measure wins 80/20 or better across all political groups.

They aim at knocking down barriers to imperialist ownership and profit making in the already super-exploited nations. They go hand in hand with the work of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank, which hold Third World economies, refusing to extend them credit unless pro-imperialist trade laws are established and draconian austerity policies are implemented.
