Why Annan must resign. U.N. secretary general Kofi Annan should either resign, if he is honorable, or be removed, if he is not. The mild-mannered Annan may not himself be corrupt. But he has presided over no less than the largest corruption scandal in the history of the world, Oil for Food. Never has the U.N. been more disrespectable or useless. Moreover, Annan's response to the scandal has been inadequate to the point of disgrace. That he still holds his post is testament to the culture of impunity that pervades the organization. ...

BAXTER: Asylum Seekers Clash With Guards
Halliburton is planning to divert water from the already-endangered Great Lakes watershed in order to cover up its ineptitude in rebuilding the Iraqi water infrastructure. In addition to the letter below being circulated by the Sweetwater Alliance in Detroit, DIRECT ACTION must be taken to stop this dangerous attempt at exploitation of our natural resources. The people of Michigan must block all efforts by corporations to drain our lakes for profit! DO NOT ALLOW THE SAGINAW PLANT TO START PRODUCTION!
Why we need to reclaim the corporate media I took out the sandwiches from my lunchbox in the canteen at work the other day as the rest of my mates sat down beside me with their trays from the hot counter. You see I’ve been eating from my lunch box ever since Sodexho took over running the canteen, because I read an article saying that Sodexho took over the contracts for the all the canteens in the NHS over in England, and all the staff lost their NHS jobs and became lower paid Sodexho employees with fewer rights. ...

25 de novembro: dia internacional da NÃO violência contra as mulheres
Hundreds of students gathered in the Park Blocks November 23, finally storming President Bernstein's office in protest of the university's decision to replace campus identification with debit cards carrying MasterCard logos. Bearing signs with slogans like "I am not a profit margin," students remained in Bernstein's office for more than an hour, spilling out into the halls and loudly demanding that PSU break its contract with HigherOne, the Connecticut bank supplying the cards. Several people spoke at the rally, including Gary Rusk from the national organization Commercial Alert and several students. Debit cards were publicly destroyed, to great cheers from the audience.

Rethinking the Thanksgiving Holiday
'Lovely graph' sez Wag, 'but what does it all mean? The tolled Motorway through the Tara and Skryne Valley should not be built for two main reasons. 1) It will destroy our heritage and 2) it will soon become a White Elephant. Instead, Dunshaughlin, Navan and Kells should be bypassed and the existing N3 road should be widened. This would be more than sufficient to deal with the traffic. The National Roads Authority (NRA) forecasts for the traffic levels and the total number of cars in Ireland are flawed because they do not take into account the looming issue of Peak Oil. The growth for the number of cars is based on the rising population, GNP and a rising car per capita rate. This was a reasonable assumption up to now, but Peak Oil changes everything and this continued growth is very unlikely to come to pass. In the image with this comment is a graph of the historic number of registered cars in Ireland for 1976 - 2001 in green and the NRA forecasted number for 2006 - 2041 in bl ...
November 9th to 16th saw the 2nd International Week against the Apartheid
On the 14th November outside the recording studios in Hampstead where "Do They Know It's Christmas" - Band AID, was being re-recorded, demonstrations took place by protesters arguing that Band Aid is a screen "whitewashing the real issues behind world poverty". Shouts of 'real aid, not band aid', 'don't whitewash Africa' and boo's were audiable over the screams of fans and onlookers. One protester was arrested while handing out leaflets explaining the reasons for the protest - [read full report].
Roundup of recent actions and campaigns:
A few days before the Mayday protests in Dublin earlier this year, 2 protestors from the UK, Polly and Joe, were arrested in the vicinity of a derelict building under suspicion of trespass. They were initially denied bail and and kept in jail for a full week. When they were granted bail, stringent conditions were attached, requiring them to surrender their passports, remain in the country instead of returning home and sign on in a police station every week. Polly and Joe had to remain in Ireland for seven months - finaly their court case took place on 10th November and all charges against them were thrown out by the Judge, not least beacuse no solid evidence could be presented by the prosecution [see reports 1, 2]. Thirty people were arrested during Mayday, many of whom still have to sign on at police stations and many of whom are still being dragged through the courts. Supporters say they were made victims of media sensationalism and made scapegoats by the State in an attempt to justify draconian and military tactics deployed during Mayday in Dublin. Related News: One of the four people who were surrounded by police and arrested at Kings Cross station [pics 1, 2] on Sunday Oct 17th on their way to the European Social Forum closing demonstration, walked free from court on Monday 17th Nov. The defendent returned from Greece to attend court, only to find the prosecution dropped the case, saying they would be providing no evidence to support the charges [see report].

Health Care Workers Strike in Fresno and Madera
Labor Actions in Madera and Fresno
5 Jahre ist es nun schon her....Im Jahr 1999 wurde erstmals f�r die breite �ffentlichkeit im Norden eine globale Bewegung gegen die neoliberale Globalisierung sichtbar, die mit dem Aufstand der Zapatistas und den folgenden "Intergalaktischen Treffen" begann. 1999 schlossen sich in Seattle MedienaktivistInnen, HaktivistInnen, K�nstlerInnen und viele andere in einem "Independent Media Centre" (IMC) zusammen, um ein mediales Bild der Proteste in Seattle und anderswo aus Sicht der Aktivisten zu schaffen. Hunderte Freiwillige berichteten aus den Stra�en Seattles und von den Aktivit�ten um den "N30" weltweit, waren schneller und zuverl�ssiger als die Mainstream-Medien, zwangen die Beh�rden und Medien dazu, ihre falschen Darstellungen zur�ckzunehmen...

These banks include Bank One, Huntington National Bank, National City Bank, Comerica Bank and Standard Federal Bank. ADC has decided to act on behalf of these members and has vocalized its concern to each institution.
