Анархо-панк журнал PunkWay #9, 2014

Belarus, 04.06.2014 22:23

Вышел 9-ый выпуск журнала PunkWay, на наш взгляд гармонично дополняющий все прошлые номера. Уже с обложки мы решили высказать мнение, которое может многим не понравится. Например, мне 1-2 года назад эта фраза: "Большой эгоизм — думать, что ты способен исправлять других" – точно не понравилась бы. Хотя и зародила бы внутренние размышления. Этим и хочется поделиться в данном выпуске.



 

PunkWay #9 анархо панк журнал  

 

Журнал по прежнему предоставлен на двух языках (русском и английском), 40 страниц в русскоязычной версии и 40 в англоязычной (англоязычная на этот раз имеет материал, которого нет в русскоязычной ;) ). Также всегда рады любой помощи в распространении журнала. …



Los Angeles community members unite in Hollywood to #FarmLA and Plant Against Monsanto

LA, 03.06.2014 22:58

HOLLYWOOD – On Saturday May 24th, people from the Los Angeles area responded to the global call to action for a “March Against Monsanto†by collaborating to produce an urban gardening festival with the theme “It’s time to take back our food!â€

The day started at 10 AM at vegan café Elderberries (7564 Sunset Blvd), where 3,000 edible, organic seedlings were on hand for distribution during the “Plant Against Monsanto†portion of the day. Kale and tomatoes were just a few of the open-pollinated non-genetically engineered (GE) varieties given away.

Volunteer Morgan Peters was one of the people to address the crowd, “There is a lot you can do on a daily basis. There’s a lot going on right now in California. There’s a bill in the senate that will be voted on next week (looks like it will be Wednesday), and it’s for labeling GMOs. It’s called SB 1381 and it’s just like Prop 37 except it’s a little cleaner, streamlined, a little fresher.â€

Fight for $15 in LA

LA, 20.05.2014 23:08

Check it out. They're hitting up stores along Crenshaw. Their message is hitting wage theft. Wage theft encompasses a lot, but probably the biggie for fast food is when workers aren't given breaks or work off the clock, and management are lax about it. You're entitled to a break every four hours, and a lunch within any 8 hour period. Also, working off the clock is illegal, especially at the low wages they get paid.

Will the SEIU be able to pull off organizing victories for fast food workers?

Portland Is First U.S. City to Divest Funds from Walmart

Portland, 20.05.2014 23:08

REPOST: On Thursday, May 15, the city of Portland got rid of $9 million, or 25 percent, of its investments in Walmart. This marks the beginning of a divestment program that will purge Portland's investment portfolio of $36 million in Walmart bonds by 2016, according to a press release. The divestment plan is part of the city's responsible investment initiative, introduced by City Commissioner Steve Novick, and adopted in October 2013. The initiative also prohibits the city from purchasing Walmart bonds in the future.



The Ad Hoc Greater Boston Committee for Human Rights addresses the Suffolk/Foxman/Armenian issue

Boston, 19.05.2014 23:09

Armenian Americans await the ADL’s full withdrawal of its deceitful August 21, 2007 statement; its unequivocal and unambiguous acknowledgment of the Armenian genocide; and, to begin to make amends for the injuries it has inflicted in lobbying against the recognition of the Genocide, the ADL must actively and sincerely lobby for the passage of the Armenian genocide resolution. If the ADL is truly composed of advocates for universal human rights and genocide prevention, it will do these things.

Native American Cemetery in Danger

Huntington Beach: The sacred site of Bolsa Chica (aka: Puvungna East)--or rather, what's left of it--is again in serious jeopardy. The 9,000+ year-old burial site will be the subject of a hearing on January 8, 2014. A developer is seeking to have it rezoned from Open Space to low-density Residential.

Bolsa Chica is known for, among other things, its ancient cogged stones (found nowhere else in the world except Chile). The area has already been developed extensively, with 174+ ancestors and thousands of ceremonial objects and other items removed.

The Coastal Commission hearing will be in San Diego at 9am; however, free bus rides from Huntington Beach will be provided to those who RSVP. Supporters are also encouraged to write to the Coastal Commission.

Further details: Rezoning of the Ridge in Huntington Beach by Johnk

This video describes the site and its history (though a bit dated in some ways): The Bolsa Chica Project

See the Bolsa Chica Land Trust for more historic and environmental information.

Update: From the Bolsa Chica Land Trust: SAVE THE DATE: Very possible Coastal Commission hearing June 11th -- 13th at HB City Hall concerning Ridge LCPA. We need your help and support in this very pressing issue! If you can attend in person, write in, or even just share this with your friends to get the word out, that would be great! We will continue to post more information as it becomes available.

SaveThe Internet

LA, 17.05.2014 23:09

On Thursday, May 15th, three dozen people rallied in 102 degree heat outside the FCC field office in Cerritos, CA to #OccupyTheFCC in favor of net neutrality. Protesters waved signs bearing messages such as "FCC -- Don't Nix Net Neutrality," Don't Neuter the Net," and "Neutralize the Threat, Not the Net."

This Southern California FCC field office is located in unmarked suite 660 of a large industrial park also housing a for-profit college. Despite chants of "Hey, FCC? Come out! We've got some stuff to talk about!" no employees appeared to address the assembled citizens.

If the FCC approves paid Internet "fast lanes," websites that pay hefty fees will be easier for the average consumer to access. On the flip side, small businesses, start-ups, and anyone who can not afford the large fees will have their Internet traffic sent to the "slow lane." #SaveTheInternet refers to the campaign to keep the Internet free from discrimination and defend the principle of net neutrality.

Or, in the words of Thursday's rally, "Google fast, my blog slow? To that I say: no, no, NO!"
