Why I Support the Somerville Divestment Initiative: An Israeli's View

Boston, 01.12.2004 16:33

As an Israeli immigrant living in Somerville, I strongly support the Somerville Responsible Investment Resolution, which urges all investors in the city to divest from companies involved with Israel's human rights violations and from Israel Bonds. I am sad to see my country of origin hurling itself down a path of self-destruction and I feel a responsibility to stop it. The Israeli people are good people, you just have to shake them up and awaken them to the fact that they are heading in the wrong direction. And this is what this divestment initiative will do.

`Troops Out` picket of BBC, Queen Margaret Drive, Glasgow. Monday 29 November.

Scotland, 01.12.2004 14:46

Glasgow based `Troops Out` held a three-hour picket outside the offices of BBC Scotland in Queen Margaret Drive, Glasgow. The BBC, cowed by the Hutton report, has represented the disaster of Fallujah as something that has just happened, rather than highlighting the war crimes that have taken place. The cutting off of electricity and water from a whole population is a collective punishment, which is a war crime under the Geneva Convention. The use of indiscriminate firepower as from AC130 gun ships and the dropping of 500kg bombs is excessive force, which is also a violation of the Geneva Convention. There is no sense of outrage in the reporting about the humanitarian disaster, which has taken place.

Haitian Priest Dies in US Custody

San Francisco Bay Area, 01.12.2004 07:32

81-year old Joseph Dantica came to the United States as an asylum seeker, but he found only suffering and the peace of death. He arrived in Miami on October 29th, was held overnight in Miami International Airport, then wasplaced in detention at Krome North. He was isolated from his family, friends and legal help. He was pronounced dead on Nov. 3. After facing what the National Coalition for Haitian Rights calls "Immigration bureaucracy that from the top down has been hostile to Haitians' claims of fear of persecution," Joseph Dantica died. He had been a frequent visitor to the US since the 1970's, and maintained a close relationship with his famous niece, the celebrated Haitian-American writer Edwidge Danticat.

pdx indymedia worker drones now reserve the right to hide any newswire articles that are &quot;reposted from corporate media outlets&quot;

Portland, 01.12.2004 07:09

Since Saturday, Nov. 20, a new criteria for composting articles has appeared in the site's editorial policy. Now, portland indymedia worker drones reserve the right to hide any newswire articles that are "reposted from corporate media outlets". These, and other hidden articles, can be found in the compost bin. Indymedia was never intended to be a one-stop-source for all news. Without the poison of corporate media, the portland indymedia website will now have a much better signal-to-noise ratio, and will perform better as a media source for the creation (not reposting) of "radical, accurate, and passionate tellings of truth" (which the corporate media doesn't publish, anyway).

Day 2 of the Parry Center Strike

Portland, 01.12.2004 06:23

There was another good day on the line. Spirits are high and people are ready to see this fight through not just for the kids today, but all the kids who have to go through the Parry Center and all its mismanagement. Scabs and management are aggressively speeding into picketers and hitting people with their cars. If people could come down to the picket line and video tape these actions, it would be super super awesome. This is clearly ASSUALT WITH A DEADLY WEAPON and the people who have been hit plan want to prosecute. Food not bombs or others cooking and bringing food would be great. The line is again at 3415 se powell blvd. Lots of union members came by to express solidarity, and people are meeting with various locals throughout the week to garner support. Having activists come down too though would be great for morale and keeping numbers up to let scabs know how wretched they are. read more >>The striker's demands: A summary of our struggleOur main demands are .45$/hr more for everyone in the bargaining unit, the language of the staff-to-kids ratio law in the contract, and an end to illegal acts on the union, union supporters, and our protected labor rights. Where do these demands come from? This raise doesn't really track cost of living increases, inflation, or a living wage. Sadly we don't expect that much from such brutal managers. Instead we sought to gain some attempt at meeting inflation, not just because many of us are extremely impoverished, have student loans, etc., but rather because it will keep better trained more experienced people around. To work as a CATS staff (the people who take care of the kids) you must have a college degree and are paid 8.86$/hr-9.25$/hr. Strangely enough Trillium pays workers doing the same jobs at other facilities about 1$ more per hour... because they are non union. The school district pays a lot more for people doing a very similar job with less intense physical contact. This has created a situation where you attract people who are extremely committed to the kids, but eventually get burnt out by the enforced poverty and disrespect from management. read more >>

Looking Back Five Years to The Battle of Seattle

San Diego, 01.12.2004 03:18

November 30, 1999 represented a triumphal moment for worldwide civil resistance against a global economic system that gives private corporations more power than governments. In the morning hours of N30, 1999, tens of thousands of activists from across the globe converged in the streets of downtown Seattle, to shut down meetings of the World Trade Organization, the undemocratic, international governing forum of neoliberal globalization.

The conflict became infamous around the world, partially because of the violent police response to the largely peaceful demonstrations. In years since, N30 has been remembered in the streets of Seattle and around the globe, with marches, rallies and celebrations of resistance. Dialogues about the effectiveness of the movement have multiplied in number, both within and beyond activist circles. The date is also remembered as the birth of the Independent Media Center, www.Indymedia.org.

At the WTO protests in Seattle, we had a collective vision. We saw beyond the borders that divide us. We saw people come together across every kind of political and cultural difference and stand up in a way that we had not seen in this country for decades. We saw peaceful protests shut down one of the most powerful institutions in the world and we saw a system dazed and frightened by the sound of our voices.

The Battle of Seattle and Indymedia, five years on

Michigan, 01.12.2004 00:24

In politics, five years is a long time. And on the internet, where self appointed gurus proclaim a new media "revolution" eveny few months, five years can feel like fifty.

Five years ago today, tens of thousands of anti-WTO activists across a broad spectrum of the American left jammed the streets of Seattle in protests that sent the trade organization running for cover [Pictures]. Five years ago also saw the birth of the Indymedia movement. [First Ever Post]

The following five years would see the energy of the "anti-globalization" movement (as it would wrongly be called) wax and wane. Hundreds of Independent Media Centers would join the global network, and a few would leave. Locally, activists would create Indymedia.us. Hardware, old and usually donated, would often fail. Government repression would become commonplace.

A Looming Threat To Public Access Television

Portland, 30.11.2004 22:29

I just received an e-mail from Portland Community Media linking to a recent article from BusinessWeek Online, concerning the future of Public Access in this country. What it gets down to is that the Baby Bells want to enter the lucrative cable t.v. market, and they don't want to have to pay local communites for the right of way.

This grandiose scheme is meeting with a roadblock in the form of local governments demanding franchise fees, like those collected from Cable franchises funding all local Public Access channels nationwide. These fees do not sit well with the Cable companies, and they have even recently, in San Jose, California sued to be released from these obligations. They lost, but as I understand it, the case will eventually go up to the Supreme Court.

Central Oregon Contaminated With Unapproved Creeping Bentgrass - Comment Deadline Thursday

Portland, 30.11.2004 22:25

Oregon's first publicly acknowledged contamination by a genetically engineered organism occurs in Madras area from Roundup Herbicide resistant Creeping Bentgrass destined to be used on 17,000 golf courses in the US. This is a product we do not need, it is an aggressively spread plant either through pollen or vegatatively through its rhizomes and easily crosses with many other grasses. This GE grass threatens to destroy the 3rd largest agricultural market in Oregon - our Willamette valley grass seed industry. The comment period was extended to December 2nd, this Thursday, possibly to allow the industry to catch up to the nearly 700 comments we've helped generate so far. If you are reading this, please send in your comments. read more >>

Bostonians Rally on the International Day of Solidarity with Palestine

Boston, 30.11.2004 21:26

On November 29, 2004, the International Day of Solidarity with Palestine, about forty people gathered from 6:00 to 7:00 pm for a rally in Harvard Square organized by the Boston Coalition for Palestinian Rights (BCPR). They joined people around the world, expressing their solidarity with the people of Palestine in their struggle to end their occupation by Israel, an occupation that sees Palestinians murdered and humiliated on a daily basis, their homes and villages destroyed, and their best agricultural land and aquifers confiscated. As people at the protest argued, it is particularly important for Americans to oppose the Israeli occupation, because the United States government is not the even-handed broker in the conflict that it depicts itself as, but in fact Israel’s chief supporter worldwide.



TennCare Enrollees Discuss Strategies for Smart Reform

Tennessee, 30.11.2004 20:54

Given the life-saving role that TennCare plays for hundreds of thousands of Tennesseans, it’s important for our state to consider all the available options to get us out of the current crisis. While most media attention has focused on only two of these options (drastically cutting benefits or killing the program entirely), TennCare enrollees are pointing out viable strategies for a “third way”—smart reform that lowers costs without compromising care.



KATU once again passes fluff for &quot;news&quot;

Portland, 30.11.2004 19:20

I know it's no secret that KATU, along with all the other local news outlets, deliberately dodges the real issues in favor of fluffy "news" stories with no real meaning or content, but what I watched Sunday night was perhaps one of the worse offenses. (Yes, possibly worse than women stripping in Florida to save money for college, which I saw on the FOX affiliate; or "the dangers of taking your pet's medication," which I heard advertised on the radio last year.)

My roommate and I were sitting on the couch, listening to music; the TV was turned to the local news, with the volume down. It was about 11:15 at night, and this "story" came on the air. I saw a shot of a "Wisteria Lane" street sign, a shot of a woman talking, another shot of the street sign, and another shot of the same woman, this time with her name and the description "Lives on Wisteria Lane."

"What the hell is this story about?" I asked my roommate. "Why is this street so important? Did something happen?"

Then, my other roommate chimed in with, "Oh, yeah, it's about that TV show, 'Desperate Housewives.'" "What?" I asked. I didn't understand. I've heard a few passing references to the show (being bombarded by advertising 24/7), but I still didn't make the connection. "The show takes place on Wisteria Lane," she clarified.

World AIDS Day 2004 Observed on December 1st

San Francisco Bay Area, 30.11.2004 19:06

UNAIDS/WHO reports that nearly half of the 37.2 million adults who are living with HIV today are women. HIV infection rates are on the rise in areas such as Eastern Europe, and last year more women than men were found to be living with HIV in Papua New Guinea. In the US, HIV/AIDS service and prevention organizations, especially in San Francisco, were hit by devastating cuts in federal funding earlier this year as the second Bush administration chose not to give as much money as in the past. Ryan White CARE grants, which are doled out to the 51 metropolitan areas in the United States hit hardest by the AIDS-HIV epidemic, were cut drastically, but locally, Representative Nancy Pelosi worked this year to restore some funding for the year 2005 and to make it so these fluctuations in funding will not happen again. On the other hand, ACT UP San Francisco thinks that AIDS is a scam because it has not turned out to be the epidemic that was predicted 20 years ago.

Her colleagues at Radio Maria—a restaurant in downtown Champaign—started the fund in an effort to give meaning to such a senseless, needless death. The fund’s purpose is to give financial support to someone who might be in a situation like Shawna was when she signed up for the United States Army and later the National Guard.

But he is bringing up some interesting calculations based on comparing Kerry's vote total to that of C. Ellen Connally, an African-American Democratic candidate from Cleveland for Ohio Chief Justice. Even though down-ballot races usually involve fewer votes than the much more prominent races at the top of the ticket, Connally received 257,000 more votes than Kerry across the state.

Learning Arabic from eight year olds

Portland, 30.11.2004 08:26

I have been going spending a lot of time at the Balata Center for the Rehabilitation of the Disabled, doing an art project with the children. Contrary to what the name implies, its not just a center for the disabled, although that is what it was established for. It is also a community and cultural center for the community at large, particularly the children. A few friends and I have been working with a group of kids after school, mostly girls from around 3 yrs old all the way up to teenagers, although most of them were around 8. I taught them how to make wheat paste, and we made paper mache masks and then painted them, and played games. It has been particularly theraputic for me, hanging out with a bunch of young girls, and some cute little boys. I can also say that if you want to learn a language, playing games and painting with little kids is a good way to practice. I must have counted to ten in Arabic around 20 times. read more >>[ other Sami in Palestine stories ]



Review of &quot;This Time We Fight&quot;, a pdx indymedia video i saw tonight

Portland, 30.11.2004 08:04

Tonight i went to the pdx indymedia video showing at It's a Beautiful Pizza (where it happens the last Monday of every month). i brought along two videos i'd edited myself from other people's footage, about Buy Nothing Day and Fur Free Friday, events that both happened last Friday. i was pretty happy with the work i had done, but once again, i was blown away and pleasantly humbled by Cat's video work. With every new video she makes, it seems, she sets a higher bar of quality. i totally steal her tricks and techniques whenever i can (and i had done so with one of the videos i brought to the showing), but as soon as i do, she's moved on, and gone to a better place already. Along with the work that other videoistas do, new territory is being explored where Corporate Media never goes. It's really inspiring.

But let me get back to "This Time We Fight", which is Cat's video about the protests in Portland on Nov. 3, the day after the sElection. It's f'n brilliant and let me tell you why...

Report on Election Fraud Rallies in San Francisco

Portland, 30.11.2004 08:00

Firsthand accountof Rallies at KGO and Senator Boxer's Office Monday, November 29, 2004 in San Francisco urging media coverage of the important problems with the 2004 Presidential Election and Boxer's support in standing up for the voters and democracy.

Sunday evening, I bicycled to a nearby house, to join 18 people making banners and signs in anticipation of today's rallies. Eight of us carpooled to San Francisco, delighted to see a large group of protesters, with signs already assembled before KGO, well before the scheduled begin of the 11:00 AM rally. Many joined us to help carry our incredibly long banners, and carry our many home-made signs. Over a hundred very creative, articulate, informed people gathered on the sidewalk in front of KGO, not far from another Television Station, and we were glad to see the television cameras rolling. People had come from the East Bay, Marin, San Jose, as well as San Francisco.

Our main points were emblazoned across the signs that were carried and the stories that our speakers told- in brief soundbites-
