Three Years and Counting

Ireland, 26.11.2004 09:24

The U.S. has not suffered a major attack since September 2001. Why? The September 11 attacks still reverberate profoundly. Of that, there is no better indication than George W. Bush's decisive reelection. For all the trendy talk about "values voters," the campaign was run principally on national-security issues, and the president won a surprisingly large majority. The nation was convinced that he had a superior handle on how to keep us safe. ...

Fred Phelp's Baptist Congregation showed up on Thursday to protest the Fayetteville High School Gay Straight Alliance on Thursday.They numbered a little over ten. Hundreds of students and community members poured onto the lawn of the school to counterprotest, proving that nothing can unite a community like an ignorant bigot. The crowd was very loud and someone from the back of the crowd threw some projectiles at the bigots. One woman reported being hit wiht a rock and a corporate reporter was struck with a plastic bottle. BMONK has compiled an excellent short video of the afternoon.

Fur Free Friday Rally and Walk

Portland, 25.11.2004 21:52

Millions of animals are trapped, drowned, and beaten to death in the wild each year. Others are confined to wire cages, enduring extremes of temperature, lack of veterinary care, and being killed by poisoning, neck breaking, or anal or vaginal electrocution.

  • When: Friday, November 26th
  • Where: SW 10th and Yamhill
  • Time: 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Over the past decade, the campaign to stop the bloody fur trade has been enormously successful. The habit of wearing fur has been exposed and stigmatized as blatant animal cruelty. But despite our gains, we are now at a critical juncture. Young celebrities and designers are flaunting animal skins as coats and trim once again, and the public is being swayed.

The fur industry has convinced the media that 'fur is back.' Join In Defense of Animals and bring your canine friend for a fun and educational, 1.5 mile walk in remembrance of the 40 million animals brutalized and killed by the fur industry each year. Help remind the public that fur is for the dogs and all the other fur-bearing critters; never for vanity!

Indymedia Barcelono ankaŭ en esperanto

La asembleo de Indymedia Barcelono prezentas esperanton kiel novan lingvan eblecon por legi la novaĵojn de la centra kolumno kaj ĉion alian krom la novaĵoj de la dekstra kolumno. Esperanto estas sennacieca lingvo, ĝia hejmo estas la tuta mondo. Per ĝia uzado ni deziras kontribui al pli justa mondo, en kiu neniu, pro naskiĝo aŭ ekonomia nivelo, havu pli da eblecoj scipovi la superregantajn lingvojn; t.e., ni celas eviti diskriminacion pro lingvaj kialoj.

Barcelona Indymedia introduce the use of Esperanto

The assembly of Barcelona Indymedia introduces esperanto as a new linguistic option to read the news from the central column and everything other than the right column. Esperanto is a language without a state, its house is the World. With its use we want to contribute to build a fairer world, in a way that nobody, for any reason of birthplace or economic level, will have more oportunity to have access to a command of languages which are imposed. What this means is that we are looking to prevent discrimination for linguistic reasons.

Re-Membering Thanksgiving: Gloating and Gluttony Then and Now

DC, 25.11.2004 20:41

Body parts litter Falluja and US dinner tables. Complacent Christians gorge themselves without fear, safe from the threat of gay marriage. Thus, the conquest continues. But resistance is persistent. Separation is both cause and consequence of our problems. Solidarity -- with the earth, other animals, each other, and ourselves -- will save us.

On Thursday, November 25, a group of advocates for the homeless began occupying a former homeless center at 75 I St, SW, Washington, DC. Both the Gales School Shelter and the Randall School Shelter have recently been closed seemingly as a part of the city administration's efforts to make the homeless invisible by sweeping them out of the downtown area.

I'm sure that there's a lot of folks out there who earn their living as journalists and by studying the political process who are way ahead of me on this, but I still feel compelled to ask: were the Democrats taking a dive in this last election? Yeah, I know I'm probably way wrong on this, but the question keeps nagging at me.

How long will this story go on? All of us knew about the cases at home, on the street, in the alternative spaces, at work, in the prisons, at war, etc...

Why Thanksgiving?

San Diego, 25.11.2004 18:41

Why does anyomne continue to legitimize the Thanksgiving holiday by celebrating it? Eating Tofurkey does not change what thanksgiving is truly a celebration of.

The first official "Day of Thanksgiving" was proclaimed in 1637 by Governor Winthrop. He did so to celebrate the safe return of men from Massachusetts who had gone to Mystic, Connecticut to participate in the massacre of over 700 Pequot women, children, and men.

Just say, &quot;No, Thank You!&quot; when you're offered turkey today

Portland, 25.11.2004 17:46

Over 300 million turkeys are killed every year in the United States, 40 million of them specifically for Thanksgiving. The majority of these are raised in factory farms where they are stacked in cages in windowless sheds where they can't live naturally (or happily) in any sense of the word. Often they cannot move, and many die in the conditions before they are fully grown. They are debeaked and declawed without anesthesia, making it difficult or even impossible for them to eat, and research shows that they feel the pain of this for the rest of their lives. Those who survive are fed until they are grotesquely obese and cannot stand because their skeletons are too weak from confinement. Over-burdened in this way, and trapped in close quarters with too little oxygen, many turkeys die when their hearts explode from the physical stress. read more >>Think that turkey looks appetizing? Think again.Turkeys and other poultry are often infected with salmonella and campylobacter bacteria from their unnatural living conditions, and deregulation of the industry means that more diseases are reaching the dinner table. Even if a particular bird is free of these bacteria at the point of purchase, it was most likely raised on a steady diet of antibiotics and chemical growth stimulants which are not good for human health. Additionally, working conditions in poultry factories are unpleasant and dangerous, and big business has blocked legislation that would grant workers relief. The turkeys lose, and the people lose. read more >>

Buy Nothing Day Protest: Friday, Nov 26

Portland, 25.11.2004 16:58

The largest Buy Nothing Day Protest is being organized by a group not to be named. Plans are to surround the Lloyd Center Mall to help educate shoppers on the dangers of supporting a corporate-run world. On Friday, Nov. 26, starting at 9 am and running through 9 pm, protesters will be walking around the mall, playing instruments (as many as possible) and handing out pamphlets to would-be shoppers. We expect a few thousand people from all around the Northwest and other areas of the country. We want to shut down the mall for one day on the busiest day of the year.

Fan Rage in an Age of Political Apathy

Baltimore, 25.11.2004 15:46

Sport fans generating violence has a long history. The brawl at the game, between the Detroit Pistons and Indiana Pacers, started by a fan tossing a cup of water on a player, is only the latest example. The Establishment doesn’t really give a good hoot about this ugly incident, since it only adds to the effects it seeks to manipulate the citizenry. If the fans get organized, however, and direct their venom at the Establishment, then watch out!
