Independent Media (Mexico City) take the floor in their own defense

Portland, 18.09.2013 03:39

On September 11, these independent media collectives [from Mexico City] spoke at a press conference to tell what they experienced that day, denounce the alarming scenario of repression that exists in the city under Miguel Mancera, defend their comrades facing charges, and defend their journalism that has been denigrated both in the mainstream media and the 23rd misdemeanor courtroom of judge Fausto Favela Ayala; it's no exaggeration to say that the independent media themselves are on trial.

When they took to the streets to support the struggle of dissident schoolteachers last September 1, more than twenty people were grabbed by the Mexico City riot police and jailed unjustly, including Estela Morales of Regeneración Radio, Pável Alejandro Primo of Multimedios Cronopios and Gustavo Ruiz Lizárraga of the SubVersiones Autonomous Communications Agency, who were arrested as they documented police abuses.

In moderating the press conference, SubVersiones reporter Rafael Camacho pointed out that even though arbitrary detentions and irregularities have been documented in the cases, the judge continues to compound the excesses. "We presented videos showing the innocence of Gustavo Ruiz, but the judge disregarded them while accepting the statements of cops who failed to present evidence, photos, videos, or anything at all indicating Gustavo's guilt. . . And furthermore, they're still inventing charges."

Californians Vigilant in Opposition to War

San Francisco Bay Area, 16.09.2013 03:51

As the U.S. government marched towards war with Syria in late August, anti-war groups and activists across the state responded with two weeks of emergency demonstrations. The ANSWER Coalition organized a series of protests, and actions were planned for the offices of Nancy Pelosi, Dianne Feinstein, and Barbara Boxer. Events were also held at well known anti-war protest locations such as Peace Crossroads in San Jose and on Ocean Street in Santa Cruz.

Occupy bike swarm blocks private mail truck

Portland, 16.09.2013 03:40

Occupy Portland's bike swarm joined "postal protectors" to block a private mail truck leaving the Mt. Hood Distribution Center (US Postal Service) September 7th, demanding that postal management stop subcontracting the trucking of "the people's mail." Claiming concerns about safety, cost and corruption, the blockaders left after police ordered them to disperse. No arrests were made.

Occupy Portland's bike swarm joined "postal protectors" to block a private mail truck leaving the Mt. Hood Distribution Center (US Postal Service) September 7th, demanding that postal management stop subcontracting the trucking of "the people's mail." Claiming concerns about safety, cost and corruption, the blockaders left after police ordered them to disperse. No arrests were made.

"Postal truckers are losing work to a bankrupt, fly-by-night outfit, Dill Star Route Inc, in a corrupt, no-bid deal with local USPS management," declared Jamie Partridge, a blockader and retired postal worker. "We intend to stop this attack on family wage, union jobs."

Calling themselves "postal protectors for the 99%," the protesters included retired postal workers, a small business person, seniors, a teacher, an immigrant worker and a teamster, all of whom declared themselves impacted by postal privatization.

Chanting "We'll be back!" the "protectors" vowed to further interfere with private mail transport, if postal management did not reverse the subcontracting. The group has blocked or interrupted Dill Star mail trucks four times this summer - with people, with a car and today with bikes. [...]
Postal workers have seen their wages cut by 25% for new hires. Bottom-tier Postal Support Employees (truckers and clerks) and Mail Handler Assistants now make less in wages and benefits than the non-postal, non-union sub-contract workers.

The postal service is not broke. Subcontracting work is unnecessary and costly. However, the agenda of corporate America, their friends in Congress and in postal management, according to the CPWU, is to cripple the USPS, to soften it up for union busting and privatization. The USPS is a $65 billion annual business with over $100 billion surplus in its pension and retiree health benefit funds, over 30,000 post offices and 200,000 vehicles. Postal activists claim that America is being confronted with a huge transfer of public wealth to for-profit, private corporations.

Banner Drop by Emerald Valley Anti-Racists

Portland, 15.09.2013 03:40

Anti-racist response to white supremacist banner in Eugene, Oregon

At 6am Friday morning, September 13, 2013, the Emerald Valley Anti-Racists dropped a banner over the side of the parking garage at Olive St. and 7th St. in Eugene, in solidarity with people of color and all oppressed people in the Eugene/Springfield area. This banner was dropped in response to a white supremacist banner dropped on the I-5 pedestrian bridge with an image of an iron cross and the words "Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.'' With this response we want to acknowledge those who may have experienced fear, anger, confusion, or felt threatened in any way for their physical or emotional safety. We chose a strong image and words because we are filled with rage, disgust and a deep sadness that we live in a world filled with violent white supremacy, disgusting racism and tragic systems of oppression that threaten to destroy us all. We will never be silent to this sort of behavior.
Text reads:

Fight the racists

Syria Invasion Protested in Northeast L.A.

LA, 12.09.2013 03:50

On Monday evening, MoveOn called for vigils around the country against the threatened U.S. bombing of Syria. In Silver "Lake," the turnout was large--67 people were counted an hour into it (and by that time several had left). People of all ages participated. Unlike the demonstrations against invading Iraq in '02-'03, public response was overwhelmingly positive. The honking was almost non-stop at the busy intersection of Glendale and Silver Lake Boulevards and could be heard from blocks away. Also, there was media coverage by NBC and NPR. All four corners of the intersection were occupied.

The crowd was passionate. One participant made a trip to the west side to fetch a banner for this event. Due to the large turnout, the one-hour vigil (originally scheduled from 6-7) was extended by an additional half hour.

Additional actions were planned for the following day, September 10, in and in front of the office of Congressman Adam Schiff in Hollywood.
