San Francisco Remembers Those Killed By Police

San Francisco Bay Area, 22.10.2011 18:28

Today is October 22nd, the 16th National Day of Protest to Stop Police Brutality, Repression, and the Criminalization of a Generation. In San Francisco, a protest is planned to begin at 12pm at 3rd St. and Palou in the Bayview, near where Kenneth Harding was killed this year, to draw attention to Harding's death as well as many other deaths at the hands of law enforcement. Everyone at the protests, as well as supporters who can't make it, wears black in solidarity with people whose loved ones have died in custody. Local groups join together each year to write a national Call for a National Day of Protest that reflects what happened in that year, such as police killings, FBI repression of activists, attacks on immigrants, prisoner hunger strikes, and more.

Haz frente a la crisis: objeccion fiscal a los gastos militares

Euskal Herria, 22.10.2011 11:24

Para dejar de sostener unos gastos militares sin sentido. Para denunciar p�blicamente los atropellos militares. Para no darles los recursos que ponen en marcha la maquina militar, este a�o de nuevo los grupos antimilitaristas nos animan a realizar la objeci�n fiscal en estos d�as que estamos en medio de la campa�a de la declaraci�n de la renta.

A la hora de rellenar la declaraci�n, aunque salga a pagar o a cobrar, se debe presentar un escrito donde te declaras que quieres hacer objeci�n fiscal y la cantidad correspondiente a los gastos militares (calculada cada a�o seg�n los presupuestos del estado) se propone desviarla a alg�n proyecto alternativo de las cada vez m�s organizaciones, sindicatos, ONGs... que a�o a a�o se animan a apoyar la objeci�n fiscal. La justificaci�n de haber ingresado el dinero junto con el escrito declarandote objetor@ fiscal se presentan en Hacienda para certificar esta manera de hacer desobediencia civil.

El gobierno no recorta por ello los gastos correspondientes a los militares, al contrario, cada a�o son m�s grandes, pero por lo menos nos ponemos en marcha para denunciar las guerras y el control en los que se basa esta sociedad.

Para informarse:

  • Kakitzat: llamar al 652 762 232
  • Grupo de objecci�n fiscal de Gipuzkoa (KEM-MOC): escribeles o llama al 666-619586
  • KEM-MOC de Bilbo: escribeles o llama al 609 469 599
  • Grupo de objecci�n fiscal de Iru�a KEM-MOC: escribeles, llama al 948 21 05 30 o pasate alg�n martes por Bakearen Etxea, Merced 18 bajo en Iru�ea.

Invitaci�n participar en 2011-V-21 [Gran Via-17:00]

Euskal Herria, 22.10.2011 11:24

Hoy en d�a, realizar en la calle cualquier tipo de concentraciones, parodias reivindicativas, comidas populares, al igual que infomar, poner carteles o denunciar mediante pintadas, las han convertido en acciones delictivas. Adem�s, cada vez somos m�s gente atrapada en una pasividad que envuelve cualquier razonamiento rebelde, asumiendo actitudes fatalistas ante situaciones injustas. Permanecemos impotentes ante la opresi�n, en vez de luchar contra ella, atmorizadxs por la represi�n cotidiana. �Hablar de libertad y prohibir nuestra existencia en las calles, asi como censurar peri�dicos, radios libres y publicaciones alternativas, es una farsa! La ordenaza del espacio p�blico aprobada por el Ayuntamiento de Bilbao desde septiembre y puesta en marcha mediante multas, es el ejemplo vivo de todo esto.

Sal a la calle y desafia la pasividad. La calle es de todxs, el altavoz de las exigencias continumente silenciadas. Recuperemos el espacio que nos roban. �Denuncia, celebra, grita, canta, baila, disfruta y reivindica. Defiende la libertad de expresi�n! Convocamos a todxs los colectivos sociales, personas, artistas, musicxs, malabaristas, dantzaris, teatrerxs, pintorxs, bertsolaris, txarangas, kirolaris, etc. a convertir la calle en nuestro espacio popular. Traeros de todo, banderas, cartles, pegatinas, intrumentos y todo lo que se os ocurra, seamos creativxs y directxs. �Que os parece si nos vemos el 21 de mayo [sabado] en Bilbo [Gran Via] a las 17:00 de la tarde?

Acampadas tras el 15-M

Euskal Herria, 22.10.2011 11:24

Madrid marc� un camino el domingo, nada espont�neo, y si muy bien planificado. La llamada fue realizada a trav�s de las redes sociales, y poco a poco la afluencia fue creciendo. Gentes de todos los �mbitos, ideolog�as diversas y con el com�n denominador de la normal indignaci�n ante un mundo injusto, gobernado por unos pocos, en beneficio de otros pocos, pero a trav�s del trabajo de todos, ha sido materializada en forma de tiendas de acampada, cursos, talleres y asambleas.

En Bilbo comenz� en la campa de los ingleses, bien entrado el lunes 16 de Mayo. La vieja Iru�ea ha visto c�mo su centro se ha convertido en un �gora efervescente. Donosti, Gasteiz,...

Los asistentes insisten en explicar, como un mantra, que no pertenecen a ning�n partido, sindicato, o nada parecido, que son, simplemente, el pueblo, y que no van a moverse de su sitio, hasta que no consigan algo. No sabemos si conseguir�n algo, lo que si sabemos es que est�n ah�.

Kukutza III Gaztetxea, Gurea da Garaipena!! Entre tod@s lo vamos a parar

Euskal Herria, 22.10.2011 11:24

Kukutza III gaztetxea, uno de los gaztes m�s grandes y con mas historia de EH se encuentra en riesgo inminente de desalojo y derribo. El auto de desalojo ha sido firmado por el juez, sin dar opci�n al recurso; y la licencia de derribo cuenta ya con el benepl�cito del gobierno vasco. Todo el proceso judicial y los tr�mites administrativos avanzan a un ritmo desenfrenado y con car�cter urgente.

Desde que esta nueva y parece que definitiva amenaza se hizo p�blica se han realizado numerosas muestras de apoyo a Kukutza, desde un lip-dub genial que logra juntar a cientos de personas, manifestaciones por el barrio de Rekalde, apoyo de profesores y catedr�ticos de la EHU/UPV, ruedas de prensa de apoyo [video]... Actualmente se sigue recabando el apoyo de la gente y de grupos y colectivos, as� que os animamos a dar vuestro apoyo y el de los colectivos desde los que participais. Tambi�n se est�n organizando brigadas de defensa para julio y agosto. Leer m�s en el blog de Kukutza.

Tambi�n se est� preparando una "Manifestaci�n Internacional" para el pr�ximo 16 de Julio que partir� desde el ayuntamiento de Bilbao a las 18:00. Se pide colaboraci�n para la difusi�n, descargando el cartel de la manifestaci�n e imprimirlo y os saqu�is una fotograf�a con el cartel en las manos y lo mand�is a la siguiente direcci�n

Kukutza III Gaztetxea, Gurea da Garaipena!! Entre tod@s lo vamos a parar.



Indymedia EH arriskuan

Euskal Herria, 22.10.2011 11:24

[Nota del equipo editorial: hemos decidido poner esta contribuci�n al newswire como central por que creemos interesante el debate, y que puede ayudar a la renovaci�n de IndymediaEH, tanto en forma como en contenidos y gentes. Animamos a participar en el debate. A esto le seguir� una asamblea en proximas semanas.]

Debate en el newswire (columna de la derecha)

Las que se suelen llamar cuestiones t�cnicas, pueden tener muchas veces or�genes de fondo bastante m�s serias. Aqu� es evidente que tenemos un problema, otra vez. Pero seg�n dicen a�n m�s grave que de costumbre. Probablemente, un problema estructural de comunicaci�n.

La primera, es que haciendo parte del equipo dinamizador de los Herria Mugi! (esos foros de movimientos sociales vascos coordinados por la JZF que anticiparon de alguna forma las pautas de Puerto Alegre), justo poco despu�s de Seattle, fui un convencido impulsor del proyecto Indymedia desde las primeras noticias que tuvimos de ello en el IV encuentro de Barria, cuando a�adimos inmediatamente un espacio Indymedia a los debates del semillero de comunicaci�n. Donde se concret� la iniciativa, entre otras importantes como una coordinaci�n de radios libres.

La segunda, es que desde su nacimiento, aunque sin hacer parte del equipo dinamizador (�asamblea?), ni conociendo bien sus mecanismos, empec� a participar en el newswire con una cierta asiduidad, sobre todo en los debates. Hasta hoy.

La tercera, por supuesto la m�s importante, es que considero Indymedia EH una de las mejores herramientas que disponemos los movimientos populares, los voluntarios y los que tenemos algo que opinar e informar en Euskal Herria. Pese a todos sus l�mites, es evidente. Se entiende, comunicar en el marco nacional, de autodeterminaci�n, de lucha social y de clases, contra y fuera de todo el aparato y lenguaje medi�tico institucional, capitalista o partidista. Es decir: fuera del control de instituciones, partidos, sindicatos, jefes o patronos de cualquier tipo, sobre todo espa�oles y franceses.

La crisis que se registra actualmente, seg�n el cl�sico boca a boca que caracteriza nuestra sociedad muy viva y siempre atenta, parece m�s grave de lo habitual. A veces resultar�an ser problemas t�cnicos, los que condicionan la supervivencia de este medio independiente pero, lo sabemos, siempre existen explicaciones sociales, culturales y pol�ticas en los or�genes de estos dichosos problemas t�cnicos.

Por mi parte, desconozco todav�a como funciona el mecanismo Indymedia. Lo confieso, uso ordenadores no mucho m�s que como aparatos de redacci�n, e Internet esencialmente como medio de comunicaci�n de forma bastante simple o primitiva. No tengo conocimientos suficientes (y por esto no me sum� al equipo de puesta en marcha) como para entender que hay detr�s de esta p�gina tan interesante, din�mica y disponible.

Pero aqu� quisiera introducir un primer elemento cr�tico: me parece que, ya desde su puesta en marcha, no se han registrado grandes esfuerzos para darla a conocer a los movimientos sociales. Ser� por mi desconocimiento o despreocupaci�n, pero tengo la impresi�n de que demasiado pocos voluntarios del movimiento social vasco hayan tenido la oportunidad de conocer y participar en este proyecto.

He visto en otros pa�ses campa�as de apoyo, o de promoci�n de los respectivos Indymedia. Hasta pegatas y pintadas en la calle, pero en Euskal Herria, por lo menos por lo que conozco, nada parecido. Se habla de asambleas Indymedia, pero ignoro el cuando y el como de estas reuniones, y as� creo que le pasa a la gran mayor�a de los que hacemos alguna actividad social, cultural, etc. en Euskal Herria. Por lo tanto, esto podr�a explicar, en parte por lo menos, la situaci�n bastante precaria del medio. E indicar un camino alternativo m�s provechoso, abierto y eficaz para mantener abierta y desarrollar esta ventana de libertad.

Pregunto: �No habr� llegado el momento de socializar algo m�s Indymedia EH, por lo menos a partir del mismo sito, o con los medios que se consideren m�s oportunos, para dar a conocer la situaci�n e invitar a una mayor participaci�n?

Occupy Melbourne joins day of global solidarity

United Kingdom, 22.10.2011 08:47

The Occupy Melbourne day in Melbourne's City Square kicked off with approximately 750 people and a large number of police. Approximately 20 tents have been set up from various groups including refugee support and campaign groups, the gay marriage campaign, an indigenous tent, kids' spaces, and many others. People are busy making signs and placards with calls for solidarity. Throughout today and subsequent days there will be workshops, and a General Assembly at 4pm weekends or 6pm on weekdays.

The Occupy Melbourne kitchen group has a wishlist - if you can help please donate.

United Kingdom, 22.10.2011 08:47

About 3000 people attended Occupy Sydney today. A camp was set up in Martin Place outside the Reserve Bank with people staying overnight. The atmosphere was peaceful and nonviolent. There was a related protest occurring in Sydney - Rally for Refugees outside the Sydney Town Hall which many people also attended.

Just before 10pm police started massing and then moved in taking down all tents and other structures. Tweets from @kateausburn from 10pm report that Police are removing tents Photo for #occupysydney at Martin Place. One activist U-locked himself to one of the garbage trucks, which then involved the police rescue squad having to remove the lock. Photo - Police removing neck lock. With police having impounded camping equipment and sleeping bags, they then backed off. A General meeting around 10.40pm voted to stay and continue the occupation over night.

Peaceful Occupy Melbourne protest brutally evicted

United Kingdom, 22.10.2011 08:47

Breaking News - Rally Saturday 12PM in the Federation Square

After six days of peaceful occupation of the city square, and five days before the Queen is due to visit Melbourne, Lord Mayor Robert Doyle warned that if the protestors didn't leave today they would be forcibly removed. The eviction was carried out by 400 police including riot police and dogs. Horses and capsicum spray were also used to attack the crowd at various times. People stood their ground in the square before being removed one by one. Occupy Melbourne then staged a peaceful sit-in in Swanston St which was again brutally attacked. At least 65 people were arrested, most released without charge however it is believed that 5 people remain in custody. The crowd regathered at the State Library in the early evening and have vowed to gather once again - at 12PM in Federation Square, Saturday October 22nd. The struggle against social and economic inequality, against corporate greed and for a real democracy continues tomorrow on the streets of Melbourne and around the world.

Occupy Chicago Efforts Mark One Week, Join 130+ Other U.S. Cities

United Kingdom, 22.10.2011 08:05

It began as a call in July 2011 by the magazine Adbusters to hold powerful business interests on Wall Street to account, and drawing on inspiration from the famed 2011 grassroots protests across the Middle East. But the mantle has been taken up by grassroots activists in New York City to forge an ongoing occupation outside of Wall Street and throughout New York City. The effort in its first two weeks has spurred a national movement with sibling efforts in at least 130 other cities, including Chicago.

Occupy Chicago, merely a week old, has already drawn hundreds of grassroots protesters, who "march…each day…After an hour long general assembly meeting, demonstrators headed through the financial district, Millennium Park, the Magnificent Mile and back to base camp to once more spread messages of solidarity, positivity and persistence in the face of a political system that’s left 99% of Americans without a real voice in governance…While it may be young and still trying to get organized, the movement to Occupy America is growing and cohering. And though many went home after Saturday’s march, more than a hundred stayed to continue organizing and evangelizing, with no plans to leave until they feel their job is done."

In Los Angeles Robert Stuart Lowden reports: An eclectic crowd marched thru downtown starting at Pershing Square surging thru the financial district and on down to the occupied lawn of Los Angles city hall. Cries of "Make the banks pay" and "Banks Got Bailed out We Got Sold out" rang throughout the march.

Demonstrations also took place in Riverside, San Diego, Orange County, Santa Barbara and Long Beach.

In San Diego Mark Conlan reports: Despite attacks by police wielding pepper spray and Mace, confiscation of their possession and a series of threats to evict them forcibly from the Civic Center Plaza, over 1,000 members and supporters of Occupy San Diego reclaimed their downtown space

In Riverside Rockero reports: Just under 100 people of conscience successfully held the pedestrian walkway of the downtown mall, despite police threats of arrest for those determined to sleep in the public thoroughfare.

Dance Party Shakes Bank of America

Portland, 20.10.2011 15:38

Protesters from Occupy Portland and Portland Rising Tide confront Bank of America with a dance off in the lobby of their corporate office tower in downtown Portland. Thirty five protesters entered the building and kicked off a rowdy dance party in the lobby, playing on bucket drums and rhythm sticks. The Bank of America branch immediately locked its doors, preventing protesters from bringing the dance party inside. As this debauchery disrupted business as usual in the tower lobby and the bank branch and mortgage center, a small group of individuals took the elevator to the seventeenth floor to deliver letters to corporate employees demanding that Bank of America cease and desist its funding of coal mining across the country and coal export projects in the northwest.

Climate activists have been targeting Bank of America branches over the past year in Portland and beyond for the company's financing of coal. Proposed coal export terminals threaten the Northwest in Longview and Bellingham, Wahington, as well as St. Helens and Coos Bay, Oregon. These terminals seek to export up to 80 million tons of domestic coal annually to growing Asian markets, in stark contrast to the recent achievements Oregonians have made in moving away from dirty coal fired power plants. While Bank of America gets the profits off of their investment in the world's most dirty energy source, the rest of the world gets the devastating side effects such as natural disasters fueled by climate change, health problems from living near coal plants, rail-lines or export facilities, and forced removal from our homes and land to allow for coal mining.

Mars Hill Mega-Church Welcome Wagon

Portland, 20.10.2011 15:38

On Sunday October 16th, a group of 20-30 antifascists and allies gathered at SE 32nd Avenue and Taylor Street to oppose the opening of Mars Hill's Portland branch. Demonstrators carried banners with statements of support for the LGBTQ community and maintained a presence in front of the church throughout the service. As church attendees exited the building, demonstrators held a dance party with the aid of a portable sound system and chanted, "Homophobes get out of here! Pro-Choice! Pro-Queer!"

Mars Hill is a misogynistic, homophobic, evangelical megachurch founded by Mark Driscoll in Seattle, Washington. His tiny flock first met in his living room in 1996 and swelled to a membership of 1,000 by 2003. It now boasts 12 branches in four states. The original Seattle branch alone was reported to have an attendance of 3,500 people per week in 2006, and numbers have grown since then. There are congregations of Mars Hill specifically devoted to "converting" queer people, encouraging them to suppress their sexuality and live a straight lifestyle. The newest church outpost here in Portland aims to change the sinful ways of the Rose City: namely the city's Left-wing, feminist, and pro-queer culture.

As the Occupations go Global, Seven are Ongoing in the UK

United Kingdom, 20.10.2011 01:08

On 15th October 2011 the Occupy Wall Street protests went global with over 1,000 protests around the planet. In the UK a number of towns and cities saw occupy actions which are ongoing. Birmingham protestors met at Victoria Square, [ 1 | 2 ]. A small protest took place in Sheffield and Cardiff. Several thousand attended a rally in London, where despite a show of force by the Met, a General Assembly was held and tents pitched in front of St. Paul's Cathedral. In Scotland, tents were pitched in Glasgow's George Square and Edinburgh's St. Andrew's Square. Ongoing occupations also started in, Nottingham, Newcastle and Bristol [ 1 | 2 ]. These occupations joined Manchester which had already been in Occupation since October 3rd, when a camp was started in Albert Square, which later moved to the Peace Gardens after negotiations with the council and police. Future occupations are being discussed in many other places.

The occupy protests have attracted increasing media attention and have also seen concerted efforts to try and bring together people to unite in a struggle for a better world. They have attracted many new people who have not been involved in protests before, and having focussed initially on the failures of the banking system, and against the growing inequality in our societies, they are attempting to start addressing wider issues as their workshops and General Assemblies begin to explore new ways of working with each other, and of organising the camps and in some cases taking Direct Action. In the case of Occupy Wall Street, working groups worked to build links with unions and with communities as they seek to unite people under a banner of "We are the 99%", the the face of the growth of the wealth of the 1%.

Prisoners Hunger Strike and the Champaign to End Torture in California Prisons

LA, 19.10.2011 06:32

CALIFORNIA STATEWIDE, October 18, 2011 - Of the 1100 prisoners in the SHU in Pelican Bay State Prison, over 500 have been literally buried alive in the SHU, entombed, for over 10 years; 78 for over 20 years.

Prisoners at Pelican Bay and other state prisons have rebelled against all this; for 20 days in July and now for 19 days, from September 26 to October 14, upwards of 12,000 courageous prisoners have carried out a hunger strike.

The prisoners stopped eating, risked their lives, and made their just and reasonable demands to end long term solitary confinement and torture, and snatched the initiative from the prison authorities, spotlighting a towering crime that has been for far too long covered up.
