Building Bridges Radio: Occupy W. Coast Shuts Down Ports &amp; NYC Targeted Goldman

NYC, 23.12.2011 00:25

The Occupy movement in West Coast port cities called for shutdowns of their ports. In solidarity OWS, NY targeted Wall Street giant, the owner of half of one of the world’s largest transportation and shipping outfits, Goldman Sachs. The ports were targeted because of the firing of port truckers organizing at SSA terminals in LA, owned by Goldman Sachs and the attempt to rupture ILWU union jurisdiction in Longview,WA by EGT, an exporter led by Bunge Ltd, owned by 1% bankers which reported a $2.5 billion profit last year while impoverishing workers in Argentina and Brazil. These economic blockades were in response to the nationally coordinated attacks on the Occupy movement.

Medical Self Defense &amp; the Black Panther Party --An interview w/ Alondra Nelson

NYC, 23.12.2011 00:25

Alondra Nelson, a professor of sociology and gender studies at Columbia University, is the author of a new book released last month, entitled Body and Soul: The Black Panther Party and the Fight Against Medical Discrimination. Nelson writes that “the Party’s focus on health care was both practical and ideological.” On a practical level, the BPP provided free community health care services, including preventative education. Simultaneously, the BPP railed against the medical-industrial complex, declaring that health care was “a right and not a privilege.” By 1970, People’s Free Medical Clinics had become a requirement for every BPP chapter. In 1972, the BPP revised point six of the founding ten-point-platform, adding a demand for “completely free healthcare for all black and oppressed people."

163 Days and Counting

NYC, 21.12.2011 21:33

On December 6, the People's Organization for Progress (POP) held a spirited rally and march calling for "jobs, peace, equality and justice." The protest marked their 163rd consecutive day of protest in front of the Essex County Courthouse in downtown Newark, NJ. POP plans to protest for at least 381 consecutive days, because this is how long the Montgomery Bus Boycott lasted.

POP is inviting the public to join the "Daily People's Campaign" again on Sunday, January 15th, in honor of the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr.

#ImmigrantsOccupy March/Los Inmigrantes Ocupan! Manifestacíon y Marcha

United States, 21.12.2011 12:05

El 18 de diciembre es el Día Internacional del Migrante y nos hacemos solidarios con aquellos que a nivel mundial proclaman los Derechos del inmigrante y los Derechos Humanos.

Immigrants are part of the 99% and on December 18th the Immigrant Rights movement joined forces with the Occupy Wall Street movement to demand immigrant justice including putting an end to wage theft, and stopping detentions and deportations of our beloved community members. As the Occupy Wall Street movement highlights corporate profiteering we would like to shed light on those that profit off our labor, exploit workers and refuse to pay dignified wages. We also march against the corporations who support racist anti-immigrant legislation that allows them to make billions of dollars by detaining immigrants in private detention centers and deporting nearly 400,000 people per year.

Варшава: горожане берут дело в свои руки

Belarus, 21.12.2011 03:01

Вчера, в понедельник 19 декабря в Варшаве состояталась акция повторного открытия молочного бара «Прасовы», который на протяжении нескольких десятков лет действовал в центре города. Молочные бары — это сеть столовых с блюдами домашней кухни и низкими ценами, наследие социалистических времен. Недавно «Прасовы» закрыли из-за непомерно высокой арендной платы. Многие жители опасаются, что его место займет очередной банк или эксклюзивный ресторан.
Поэтому активисты и активистки решили открыть бар вновь, протестуя против повышений арендной платы, джентрификации и превращения города в капиталистическую фирму, стремящуюся исключительно к прибыли. Ниже отчет событий от самих активистов:

19 декабря 2011 г. мы, жители и жительницы Варшавы совместными силами вновь открыли молочный бар «Прасовы», что по улице Маршалковской. Бар посетило около 400 человек, было выдано около 250 порций. Это подтверждает, что молочный бар необходим этому городу. Кроме того, успех акции убедительно…

Occupy and Immigrant Rights Movements Converge for International Migrants Day

LA, 21.12.2011 00:36

The days of the immigrant rights movement's maintaining a safe distance from the Occupy movement are long gone as throughout Southern California, "Occupy ICE" actions have brought the movements much closer together in honor of International Migrants Day. In Los Angeles, mainline labor and immigrant rights leaders spoke alongside mic-checking occupiers as marchers the downtown federal building, which contains an ICE detention facility.

Eastward, Occupy Riverside's Latino Forum held a "Latino Day," designed to celebrate the struggle of the immigrant and highlight Latino issues in the Inland Empire.

The Occupy movement has always been sensitive to pre-existing movements, whether they were environmentalist, pro-labor, feminist, or pro-civil rights, but this is the first time that immigrants and occupiers have come together in a serious way.

Occupy Wall Street's anarchist roots - Al Jazeera Repost

Portland, 20.12.2011 21:23

The 'Occupy' movement is one of several in American history to be based on anarchist principles.
London, UK - Almost every time I'm interviewed by a mainstream journalist about Occupy Wall Street I get some variation of the same lecture:

"How are you going to get anywhere if you refuse to create a leadership structure or make a practical list of demands? And what's with all this anarchist nonsense - the consensus, the sparkly fingers? Don't you realise all this radical language is going to alienate people? You're never going to be able to reach regular, mainstream Americans with this sort of thing!"

If one were compiling a scrapbook of worst advice ever given, this sort of thing might well merit an honourable place. After all, since the financial crash of 2007, there have been dozens of attempts to kick-off a national movement against the depredations of the United States' financial elites taking the approach such journalists recommended. All failed. It was only on August 2, when a small group of anarchists and other anti-authoritarians showed up at a meeting called by one such group and effectively wooed everyone away from the planned march and rally to create a genuine democratic assembly, on basically anarchist principles, that the stage was set for a movement that Americans from Portland to Tuscaloosa were willing to embrace.

Support Portland's Sleeping Bag Drive!!

Portland, 20.12.2011 18:02

Cycling Advocates Seek Control of Santa Cruz County Sierra Club

San Francisco Bay Area, 20.12.2011 05:04

On December 8th, the California Coastal Commission voted 10-1 to approve the controversial $5 million Arana Gulch Master Plan. The vote was expected to resolve a fifteen year long battle between cycling advocacy groups and environmental groups that oppose the plan. But in a move that has some long time Sierra Club members crying foul, cycling advocacy groups are running a slate of three candidates for the board of the Santa Cruz County Group of the Sierra Club in the December election. This would be the second cyclist-sponsored candidate slate in two years, and is expected to decide control of the Santa Cruz Group Executive Committee.

Demonstrators Protest the Desecration of Rattlesnake Island at the Home of John Nady

San Francisco Bay Area, 19.12.2011 01:44

On December 17, approximately 75-100 community members protesting the desecration of Rattlesnake Island, the spiritual center of the Elem Pomo community, marched to the Piedmont mansion of John Nady, the owner of Nady Systems, who has been one of those pushing for the development of the island as the location of two luxury-style vacation homes. Community members first circled up and held a rally near the Lakeview library branch in Oakland, then proceeded to march two miles up and into the hills of Piedmont where Nady owns a large home, and a short demonstration was held that featured speeches as well a spirited singing of the AIM song.

Supporters of Bradley Manning Demonstrate Outside Fort Meade

San Francisco Bay Area, 17.12.2011 22:05

Eighteen months after he was first detained on accusations of revealing information to WikiLeaks, PFC Bradley Manning appeared before an Article 32 investigating officer for a pre-trial hearing on December 16th at Fort Meade in Maryland. Supporters gathered outside the gates of Fort Meade to call for Manning's freedom and denounce the proceedings as unjust. Supporters have long argued that PFC Manning could not receive a fair hearing due to unlawful command influence from President Obama, who publicly declared in April that the former Army intelligence analyst "broke the law."

PAINTING BANNERS SIGNS

Thrown away into dumpsters by riot police.

Like of remains of soldiers killed in Iraq, for the ideas of Amerika's ruling class. It all ends up in a landfill somewhere.

Bring the Troops home, throw the dead ones in the trash. Workers at the Port weaponize a bulldozer, smash the ground with its garbage plow. Threaten the people, disenfranchised. They treat the people like garbage. Whether anyone has a job or not, these actions are happening. These protests will continue. A riot cop pushes me down, I jump up and I push back. Even days later, I fell the sting of his stick, a reminder of the ones he's paid to protect.

I am a worker, reduced to a beggar. Whether anyone wants my help or not. So a Union Worker looses a day of pay. So those out of work lose a day of pay everyday. And the worker becomes one of those bums in the park, that the riot police have to deal with, blue rubber gloves. They throw your tents and blankets, your protests, your ideas into a dumpster. They hire a trucker, to weaponize their trucks and send your remains to a landfill somewhere.

Unity, Solidarity is dead, so society falls apart. General Assembly consensus says, "Sell your comrade out!, Let that soldier, stopping business get run down. Throw her under the wheels of capital." The General Consensus says, "Better her than you. Let her stand up and get run down." Block the tracks, get crushed up, it's all bad press, as society rips itself apart.

Another Union Leader's day of pay. I won't sympathize with any worker that can weaponize a bulldozer. To use a workers equipment, against desperate people, trying anything they can to save the world. I have no sympathy for the General Consensus, to let a person be run down by a workers truck. A worker's locomotive, a workers bulldozer. These actions are not a personal attack. These actions will continue, whether any one person, one Union Leader, or one spokes council likes it or not. Long will live people's struggle. For we are becoming workers reduced to beggars.



Immigrant Rights ARE Worker Rights Rally and March

Portland, 17.12.2011 01:25

Coinciding with the International Day of the Migrant, immigrants and allies will take to the streets in a permitted, family-friendly rally and march. This will be an opportunity to join with the Occupy movement, and send a strong message against the racist laws, policies and institutions that are systematically targeting immigrant communities, such as Secure Communities, E-verify, wage theft, free trade agreements and increased detentions and deportations.

We reject the scapegoating of immigrants in the same way we refuse to blame Muslims, the poor, public sector workers, women, and other victims of this recession. We blame the recession on those who caused it, the most wealthy 1%. The 1% want immigrants to have zero rights so that they are easily exploitable and can be paid slave wages, thus lowering the wages of all working people.

When: Saturday, December 17 | 10 am Rally & 11 am March
Where: South Park Blocks between SW Salmon and Main

Occupy Olympia faces eviction

Portland, 16.12.2011 16:20

The statement from Occupy's unnamed "media team" says a 4 p.m. march and 10 p.m. assembly are planned "for camp defense and witness." It also says:

The Occupy Movement manifested as a direct response to the social and economic injustices caused by a corrupt and heartless financial system. Occupy Olympia did not create the problems faced at camp. These are the same problems faced in communities around the country. Occupier Kyle Tanner states, "It's disappointing that the state chooses to continue to sweep the realities of budget cuts under the rug rather than face the systemic inequities." Since the early days of the occupation, Occupy Olympia has provided the community with free medical services, food, and shelter, all of which are needs the state has failed to meet. "While Occupy Olympia has been offering social services, it's important to remember that the Occupy Olympia encampment is, and continues to be, a political encampment. Any attempt to discredit that would be a false representation of what the Occupy movement is all about," states Occupier Owen Prout. Though the future of the physical camp may be uncertain, the community that camp has built will continue to fight the atrocities committed to benefit the 1%.
