Magdeburg 2012: Naziaufmarsch verhindern!

Germany, 11.01.2012 13:06

Am 14. Januar 2012 wollen wieder hunderte Nazis zum 13. Mal unter dem Motto "Ehrenhaftes Gedenken statt Anpassung an den Zeitgeist!" durch Magdeburg marschieren. Dabei ist der Aufmarsch, die erste Gelegenheit im neuen Jahr für die Nazis aus dem ganzen Bundesgebiet, sich zu treffen und ihre Ideologie zu propagieren. Grund dafür ist die Bombardierung der Stadt im Zweiten Weltkrieg. Neben Magdeburg ist es auch in Dresden, Dessau oder Lübeck mittlerweile alljährliche Routine geworden, dass die Faschisten mit ihren sogenannten "Trauermärschen" aktiv Geschichtsrevisionstische Positionen in die Gesellschaft tragen wollen. Dabei leugnen diese die deutsche Kriegsschuld, stellen die faschistischen Täter als Opfer dar, setzen alliierte Angriffe mit deutschen Verbrechen gleich und erklären sich als die Opfer. So werden z.B. die Luftangriffe auf Magdeburg und Dresden als „Bombenholocaust“ bezeichnet und damit die Verbrechen Nazideutschlands relativiert und geleugnet. Des Weiteren werden die deutschen Angriffe auf Polen und Frankreich als Akte der „Notwehr“ umgedeutet. Die Vernichtung von Juden, Sinti und Roma und Gegner des faschistischen Regimes in den Konzentrationslagern wird vehement bestritten. Dem gilt es endlich ein Ende zu setzen!

Gegen den Naziaufmarsch wird bundesweit mobilisiert. Am 14. Januar 2012 findet neben den Blockaden auch eine antifaschistische Demonstration statt, die sich gegen den Aufmarsch der Nazis und Geschichtsrevisionismus richtet. Treffpunkt ist um 10:00 Uhr am Hauptbahnhof!

Ігар Аліневіч пра СІЗА КДБ

Belarus, 11.01.2012 07:11

У лісце з турмы да сястры Ігар Аліневіч апісаў здзекі за кратамі.

«…Пасля Плошчы пачаўся масавы прэс. У СІЗА нагналі карнікаў у масках. Пастаянна раўлі, рэгулярныя шмоны. Гэта душыла волю. Пасля Новага года збілі тройчы за непадпарадкаванне зневажальным загадам. Ініцыятарам гэтай «творчасці» стаў начальнік СІЗА КДБ Арлоў, — мяркуе палітвязень Аліневіч.

— Забралі ТБ. Пасля вярнулі, але круцілі перадачы пра ўсялякую містыку, чачэнцаў, жыдамасонскую змову і іншае. Гэта моцна ціснула на псіхіку, але глядзець — абавязкова.

Адвакатаў не пускалі да канца следства. Бліжэй да лютага 2011 пачалося ўзмацненне жорсткасці. Прымушалі голым стаяць на падлозе, без мэты прысядаць, некаторых клалі проста тварам.

Але самае жорсткае — бег з рэчамі і матрацам па калідорах і лесвіцах. Я ў выніку плюнуў і адмовіўся: вырашыў «ускрыцца», каб паехаць у бальнічку. Але начальнік «прахаваў» усё, бо ў іх у камерах відэаназіранне і [сочаць] псіхолагі, якія рэгулююць узровень ціску на чалавека. У выніку…

Police Raids on Occupy Squats

United Kingdom, 10.01.2012 22:50

As UK occupations squat more buildings the police, many of whom have criminal records, are flouting the law to harass protesters, the Lords are debating making squatting residential buildings illegal, the government plans to make hundreds of thousands homeless and Occupy LSX is threatened with eviction.

On 8th January 2012 40-50 police officers raided the Railton Hotel, next to the train station in Lancaster, which had been squatted by Occupy Lancaster the day before. At approximately 8.15 pm, the police used a battering ram to break through the front door. Once they had gained entry, the police arrested the four occupants who were inside at the time. The Occupiers secured the building legally, and displayed notices of Section 6 of the Criminal Law Act 1977 on the exterior of the building, but the police paid no heed to the law and Occupy Lancaster are now seeking legal advice.

Also on 8th January undercover police arrested 3 occupiers at Occupy Liverpool on suspicion of possession; none were found to be in possession of "controlled substances". Twenty or so police then surrounded the occupied building stating that it was a crime scene and laid siege to it for 3 hours. Like Occupy Lancaster a Section 6 notice was displayed but the police acted as as if squatting was already illegal.

Later this month Occupy Sheffield will be hosting a national occupy conference in the squatted Citadel of Hope.

The Feds put Islam on trial

Portland, 10.01.2012 15:43

January 3, 2012: IN THE same week that Congress passed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), sending it to Barack Obama to enshrine into law a provision allowing indefinite military detention of U.S. citizens, a federal jury in Boston delivered a guilty verdict against Dr. Tarek Mehanna, a Muslim American pharmacist charged with material support for terrorism. Coming in the wake of other Muslims around the country who have been arrested, accused of supporting terrorism, and locked up for long sentences, the December 20 guilty verdict against Mehanna on seven counts was a shocking and chilling reminder to his growing number of supporters and advocates that the "war on terror" has been putting Islam on trial for years.

Tarek's trial lasted nine weeks, but was the culmination of four years of FBI harassment, surveillance and intimidation against Mehanna from his days in pharmacy school. Islam was on trial from the first day, when the government aired the video of bin Laden. Judge George O'Toole's bias in favor of the government was evident. He allowed hundreds of photos and al-Qaeda videos into evidence that had nothing to do with Tarek, but rejected the defense's attempt to submit video clips of former President Ronald Reagan praising as freedom fighters the mujahideen who fought against the USSR invasion of Afghanistan in the 1980s and were funded by the CIA.

Obama Approves GE Corn: Agent Orange Herbicide Ingredient Would be Widely Used

Portland, 09.01.2012 17:54

WISCONSIN - January 4 - Over the holidays, the United States Department of Agriculture announced its approval of a novel strain of genetically engineered corn, developed by Monsanto, purportedly being "drought tolerant."

Despite receiving nearly 45,000 public comments in opposition to this particular genetically engineered (GE) corn variety (and only 23 comments in favor), the Obama administration gave Monsanto the green light to release its newest GE corn variety freely into the environment and American food supply, without any governmental oversight or safety tracking.

Chicago Raises Voices Against Mayor Emanuel's Anti-Protester Ordinance

Chicago, 09.01.2012 06:31

With Chicago slated to host the 2012 NATO/G8 summit in May 2012, Chicago officials are engaging in sabre-rattling against grassroots activists, first with wanton arrests admitted as "just practice for G8/NATO", and now with a proposed draconian rewrite of local Chicago laws involving public protest.

While the rewrite did get attention in Chicago's corporate media, aspects of it went little reported — like redefining "resisting arrest" to include passive resistance (like going limp), increasing the ranges of fines for violations, requiring $1 million dollars of liability insurance per protest, registering with the city at least a week in advance, and even imposing stringent requirements against protests on Chicago sidewalks.

Activists have raised the call to oppose this rewrite, with a forthcoming city council vote slated for January 18th. Read more

Family Demands Justice for Michael Nida II

LA, 09.01.2012 00:37

DOWNEY - Michael Nida was an unarmed, innocent man, who was gunned down at the hands of the Downey PD in an admitted case of mistaken identity. He was not a criminal; he was a loving husband and father of four. He was a union carpenter who worked hard to provide for his family, and also volunteered his time in his community as a coach for youth sports teams.

The Downey PD admits that they were pursuing Michael Nida because they thought that he was an armed robbery suspect. However, no non-lethal methods were used in apprehending him, and their police error resulted in his death. He was on a date with his wife and had briefly stopped at a gas station when he was shot and killed by an officer yielding an MP5 submachine gun.

The family and their supporters are asking for people to come and speak out at the next Downey City Council meeting this Tuesday, January 10, 2012 at 7:30 p.m., located at 11111 Brookshire Avenue in Downey

Towards Occupying Everything

LA, 08.01.2012 23:59

[Editorial by The Journal of Aesthetics & Protest] Issue 8 of the Journal of Aesthetics & Protest is out. Its forward, recently written but conceived in the afterglow of the 2009/2010 UC occupations looks into the broad strategy of occupying everything.

The chart shows how we editors understand how each writer's article functionalizes distrust/trust of institutionality in relationship to how much mediation they understand is useful in reflecting on the complexity of culture.

With increased institutionality, the work transforms from an isolated autonomous actor towards more socialized formations, be the formations consciously organized community groups or general mass cultures operating with less conscious collective arrangements.

With increased mediation, the project of sharing dreams, ideas, critiques and meaning goes from something very intimate (a kiss, a whisper or a slap in the face) to something that is milled through various representational machines.

Save the San Francisco Peaks

San Francisco Bay Area, 06.01.2012 02:50

The Save the Peaks Coalition is fighting the United States Forest Service in a legal battle to protect children from hazardous endocrine disruptors and to protect the San Francisco Peaks sacred site in Arizona from desecration. On Monday, January 9th, 2012 The Save the Peaks Coalition et al vs. the United States Forest Service will be heard by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco, CA. at 9:30am. The case argues that under the National Environmental Policy Act and the Administrative Procedure Act, the Forest Service failed to adequately consider the impacts associated with ingestion of snow made from reclaimed sewer water in its Environmental Impact Statement. Organizers are calling for a strong turn-out for a march and rally before the court hearing, and a welcoming reception will be held the previous day on January 8.
