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. ...

PSU Students Storm President's Office In Protest of MasterCard IDs

Portland, 24.11.2004 20:57

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.

Tara - N3 - Widen The Road Instead. Traffic, Cars and Peak Oil.

Ireland, 24.11.2004 18:12

'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 ...



Justice for Palestine: The wall must fall protests

United Kingdom, 24.11.2004 18:06

November 9th to 16th saw the 2nd International Week against the Apartheid

Wall , with actions throughout the

world,
including a number of events in the UK.

These included a blockade of the Hayes, Middlesex

premises of
Agrexco,
Israel's national exporter of fresh produce. Activists erected a
cage at the entrance to the factory, and a barrier at
the exit, stopping all collections and deliveries for 8 hours, at
an estimated cost of 30k - 40k to the company.

Seven activists were arrested and charged with Aggravated
Trespass and Section 69 of the The Criminal Justice and
Public Order Act 1994. They plan to use the court case to
challenge the legality of trade with a company that deals
in settlement goods, especially in light of the International
Court of Justice Ruling which ruled that countries have an
obligation not to not to render aid or assistance in maintaining
the situation created by the construction of the wall.



Protests at Band Aid Whitewashing Poverty Issues

United Kingdom, 24.11.2004 18:06

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].

Protesters from the Dissent! Network, organising against the G8 summit next July, argue that the song is obnoxious, patronising and out of date with the real situation in Africa.

Direct Action Against Environmental Destruction

United Kingdom, 24.11.2004 18:06

Roundup of recent actions and campaigns:

Ship Blocked Against Marine Quarrying: Ministers are planning to
give the go-ahead to strip clean a vitally important area of the English
Channel (the Median Deep - halfway between the Sussex coast and northern
France) by mining nearly 200 million tonnes of gravel from the seabed to
satisfy the house-building boom on the Southeast. The good news is that
residents of Sussex are not taking this lying down. On 11th November, the
latest in a series of actions against the dredging saw people using bicycle locks to close the Newhaven
Swing Bridge on the A259 in East Sussex, blocking the departure of a
Hanson dredging ship at high tide on Sunday.



Morecambe Bay Bridge Project - Directors Resign After Protests: Two
directors of a company planning to build a bridge across one of Britain's
last wildernesses, and most protected wildlife area, have resigned after
local protests. English Nature have expressed their opposition to the Bay
Bridge scheme, which is nevertheless being spun as a 'green bridge' because
of wave turbines that may be built at the same time. On 4th November,
local people with banners and drums stopped work at Renewables Northwest -
the General Manager there, Julian Carter was also a Director of BABC, the
company behind the bridge project - he resigned later that day [see report and background]. Protests also
took place at the Lancaster Environment Centre, whose Director Bill Davies
was also a Director of BABC [see report
and background] - he resigned a few days
later.



Hastings Bypass Turns in Link Road: Anti-roads campaigners had
thought they had seen off the Hastings Bypass, but now part of the route
has been resurrected as the Bexhill Link Road. This scheme has some of the
worst environmental aspects of the original scheme ­ cutting through
ancient woodland and endangering wetland bird species. There’s a route walk
on Sunday 21st Nov [see
SchNEWS |
related news at Road Alert]



Save Coate Water Country Park from Development: On Saturday 13
November, local campaigners surrounded the lake at Coate Water
Country Park in Swindon with a chain of over a thousand cardboard
cut-out hands, each with someone's personal message of why Coate Water is
special to them. The campaigners are trying to save the park (a Site of
Special Scientific Interest) from the development plans of the local
council [see report and pics | Save Coate Campaign]



Residents Oppose Illegal Tree Felling: On Saturday 30th October hundreds of local
residents demonstrated in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, against illegal tree felling
at the Millpond site that took place on 19th October - then many residents
tried to obstruct the chainsaws - several residents were assaulted, and
although they stopped the chainsaws, many of the trees had been cut down

Case Against UK Dublin Mayday Protestors Thrown Out of Court

United Kingdom, 24.11.2004 18:06

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].



Bayer Abandons GM crops in India and UK

United Kingdom, 24.11.2004 18:06

15th Nov: In an admission of immense significance to the entire genetic engineering
industry, Bayer Crop Science has conceded to Greenpeace India that
all of its projects on genetically engineered crops in India have been
"discontinued" [see newswire report |
Bayer
Admission Letter (pdf) | Greenpeace
Statement]



"We don't need genetically engineered crops to feed India," said a genetic
engineering campaigner for Greenpeace India. "Around the world, in fact,
the promises made by the genetic engineering industry have been
unfulfilled, whether of increasing crop yields or reducing pesticide use."



This retreat follows other recent decisions that set Bayer back - on 9th
November Bayer Crop Science removed the last 2 GM crop varieties still in
the approval process for the UK National Seed List [see report]. Previously in March 2004, the
company announced they would be pulling out of GE crop research in the UK.
A few months later, in June, Bayer announced they would not pursue
commercialization of GE canola in Australia. Bayer's letter to Greenpeace
India following direct action against the company, concedes that research
into engineered cabbage, cauliflower, eggplant, tomato and mustard seed has
all been halted.



"It is clear that popular resistance to genetic engineering is not
diminishing as the industry had hoped it would," said Doreen Stabinsky, GE
campaigner for Greenpeace International. "No matter what country we're
talking about, consumers are on the same page. They don't want to eat
genetically engineered food. That's good news for farmers and good news for
the environment."

5 Jahre Indymedia - 5 Jahre Seattle

Germany, 24.11.2004 16:46

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...
Zun�chst als tempor�res Medienzentrum gedacht, entstanden unter dem Eindruck des �berraschenden Erfolges von Indymedia und aus Anlass anderer Aktionstage, weitere Independent Media Centers in den USA und sp�ter in Kanada, Lateinamerika, Europa, Afrika und Asien. Heute existieren weltweit mehr als 160 lokale IMC's, weltweit nutzen inzwischen millionen Menschen Indymedia. In Deutschland entstand ein Indymedia im M�rz 2001 und wird heute t�glich von mehr als 10.000 Menschen genutzt.

Aus Anlass des Geburtstages fanden in Berlin, Potsdam, N�rnberg, Freiburg, Erfurt und Hamburg zahlreiche Veranstaltungen, Parties, Filmvorf�hrungen usw. statt. mehr: mag04.net
