Трагическая неделя в Парагвае

Нажмите, чтобы увеличить

Президент Парагвая неделю назад был освобожден от своей должности путем импичмента, экспресс-процесса, продлившегося всего 24 часа. Этот маневр стоит рассматривать как обратный ход демократического процесса, начатого в 2008 году. Различные социальные движения протестуют перед зданием Конгресса и по всей стране.

Этот заговор политических партий Парагвая выглядит как последний шаг в процессе политической дестабилизации страны, начавшейся с резни в Куругуати 15 июня этого года.

Факты, поступившие из Куругуати, свидетельствуют о высоком уровне заговора и действиях оппозиции. Резня, возникшая во время полицейской операции в лагере безземельных крестьян, унесла 17 жизней (11 крестьян и 6 полицейских) и 80 раненных. Арестовано 54 человека; им предъявлены очень серьезные обвинения.

Мы попытаемся объяснить цепочку событий, начиная с резни в Куругуати и заканчивая импичментом Луго.

Предпосылки событий в Куругуати

Fighting for the Soul of the Carpenter's Union

Portland, 29.06.2012 16:40

All working people should pay attention to the egregious assault on union democracy happening in the Carpenters Union's Pacific North West Regional Council, which covers all the Carpenter's Locals in Oregon, Idaho, Washington, Wyoming, and Montana.

The United Brotherhood of Carpenters has a proud history and should take immediate action to overturn a recent Regional Council decision that disciplined innocent, union-dedicated Carpenters with fines and a loss of membership privileges.

Using the TPP to Renegotiate and Expand NAFTA

Portland, 29.06.2012 16:40

"Trade deals such as NAFTA and now the TPP are being used to smuggle through a new set of transnational corporate rights, trapping nations in a web of treaties that further trump their own laws. All too often, these agreements fail to deliver on the promise of prosperity and only serve to accelerate the path towards economic enslavement. Globalization has meant sacrificing self-sufficiency and sovereignty for foreign dependency which is a sure path to world government." Both Canada and Mexico have been invited to join the U.S., along with other countries already engaged in negotiations which will deepen trade and economic ties within the Asia-Pacific region. Such a deal would surpass NAFTA in size and scope. The U.S. led talks which have been criticized for their secretive nature, could be used to update aspects of existing trade pacts among member nations. This would provide the perfect opportunity for a backdoor renegotiation of NAFTA without officially having to open it back up. http://beyourownleader.blogspot.ca/2012/06/using-tpp-to-renegotiate-and-expand.html

Help Stop Coal Shipments Down the Gorge

Portland, 27.06.2012 17:11

Want to help stop Big Coal's plans to ship Wyoming/Montana coal through the Columbia Gorge by barge/rail - especially through North/Northeast Portland en route to Port of St. Helens for Asian markets?

Come to a meeting Wednesday, June 27 from 7:30 - 8:30 p.m. at 8325 N. Central in St. Johns, sponsored by the CAAC (Community Alliance Against Coal), and Columbia Riverkeeper. You can also join cyclists heading there in the Pedalpalooza Ride. The eight-mile route departs from 1821 SE Ankeny at 5:30 p.m.

Big Coal plans to run eight trains (120-125 gondolas) daily through North/Northeast Portland (and then run the empties back through the same neighborhood). Coal trains through PDX bound for export terminals on the river threaten to pollute air, transportation, climate future, and the area's economy... Its dust off the coal trains will coat houses, cars, yards over a 1.5 mile-range from the train tracks. Coal dust brings black-lung disease, mercury poisoning, asthma, adverse impact on eyes, and cancer. Promises by the shippers to spray surfactant on the open rail cars to keep it from blowing enroute to coal terminals mean using a highly toxic substance (usually coal slurry). A major drawback from coal use whether in the U.S. or Asia is a major contribution to climate change (global warming). In selling it to Asian markets, coal use there will blow-back to the West Coast through the atmosphere, but also contribute to warming as well as the diseases and ailments listed above.

Mount Pleasant is a neighborhood under seige, with upscale newcomers who can afford outrageous rents or condo mortgages pushing out longstanding residents.

EARTH FIRST! OCCUPIES STATE CAPITOL SAYING ‘PROTECT OUR STATE LANDS'

Portland, 25.06.2012 22:06

Salem, OR: Near 10:00 AM Cascadia Earth First! and Cascadia Forest Defenders converged at the Oregon State Capitol. Activists chained themselves together and staged a "die-in" in the offices of Ted Wheeler and Kate Brown while others climbed the building's flagpoles, hanging banners reading, "Oregon: For Sale by Kate Brown and Ted Wheeler" and "Defend Oregon, No Compromise, Earth First!"

As of 1:00pm: There are 50 protesters onsite. The climbers of the flagpoles have been arrested descending into applause and leaving the banners to be removed by cherry pickers. The people locked down in the office of Kate Brown have had their support crew removed by police, who are currently bringing in extraction equipment and have hung a sheet in front of the window obscuring outside media and support. The activists inside of the office of Ted Wheeler have similarly been deprived of their support crew and shielded from view. The crowd cheers from outside of the office doors Chanting: " "Devastation and Exploitation Won't be Solved by Corporations"
"Earth First No Compromise We Fight for Water Earth and Sky"

Protesters are targeting Secretary of State Kate Brown and Treasurer Ted Wheeler - both members of the State Land Board - after passing a plan in October of last year that will nearly double the annual clearcut in the Elliott State Forest. Today's protest is an escalation in a series of protests calling on the Land Board to stop the clear cutting of ancient forests and to separate public school funding from state forest management. [...]

Cascadia Earth First! and Cascadia Forest Defenders demand:
No more clear cutting ancient forests.
Drop the 2011 implementation plan for the Elliott State Forest.
Separate our school funding from public land management.
No more privatization of public lands.
Earth First!

Co-op Annual Report: Board Candidates a Loss for Labor

Rogue Valley, 25.06.2012 15:56

(*Note from Rogue IMC volunteer: This is an ongoing saga about Union Busting illegally being conducted by the Ashland Food Co-op. The fiasco continues...)

The Co-op board has a duty to rein in the unlawful activities of their management staff. The National Labor Relations Board affirmed 13 unfair labor practice complaints and this is a MAJOR red flag that something is wrong.

It is certain that the co-op board would not tolerate theft by their General Manager and that accusations of sexual harassment or racism would be taken seriously. On the matter of violating labor laws and the rights of co-op workers, however, the board is painfully neglect in their
responsibility.
