Se impone la invasión transgénica pero avanza la resistencia

Euskal Herria, 11.01.2005 20:14

El pasado 19 de mayo, tras seis años de prohibición, la Comisión Europea autorizó la comercialización del polémico maíz Bt-11, una variedad modificada genéticamente. La UE rompía así la moratoria que mantenía sobre los Organismos Genéticamente Modificados (OGM). Desde entonces y hasta hoy, se han sucedido numerosas autorizaciones sobre diversas variedades de plantas que abren la puerta a la invasión transgénica. Paralelamente, se multiplican las campañas de propaganda sobre los OGM´s y la biotecnología, con ciclos y jornadas en los que la ciencia se lanza a divulgar con el apoyo financiero de instituciones públicas y privadas. Se dirigen tanto al productor como al ciudadano-consumidor, con el objetivo de convencernos de que no hay nada que temer. Un ejemplo claro de esto ha sido el ciclo de conferencias BIODIVERSIDAD Y CONSERVACIÓN, Mirando al Futuro, organizado conjuntamente entre la Fundación BBVA, el CSIC (Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas) y el Ministerio de Educación y Ciencia en Bilbo, durante los meses de noviembre y diciembre. Programa de este y otros ciclos en: http://w3.grupobbva.com/TLFB/tlfb/TLFBindex_pub.jsp Frente a esta situación han reaccionado diversos colectivos, sindicatos, plataformas, etc., tanto en el ámbito del Estado Español como de Europa y el resto del mundo, que, haciéndose valer de la desobediencia civil y la acción directa están encendiendo la llama de una resistencia a la imposición transgénica: · Tal es el caso, por ejemplo, de la acción de “segada popular” de un cultivo de investigación del IRTA (Institut de Recerca i Tecnologia Agrària) de la Generallitat de Catalunya, el pasado 3 de julio a cargo de la Plataforma Transgenics Fora. http://barcelona.indymedia.org/newswire/display/102475/index.php · O el boicot de la Feria BioSpain 2004 el 29 de noviembre en Barcelona, también por parte de la Plataforma Transgenics Fora. http://barcelona.indymedia.org/newswire/display/140647/index.php · O, un poco más cerca, la concentración ante la ponencia de Ramón Vidal en Bilbo el pasado 29 de noviembre, por parte de la Red de Acción Contra Transgénicos. http://www.sindominio.net/~taladro/berriak/BbvaMitificaLaCiencia.htm Por último, comentar que el pasado 16 de diciembre, en Bilbo y bajo el lema “Cerramos la puerta a los transgénicos”, Chico Mendes Taldea realizó otra acción contra los transgénicos. Ésta consistió en el bloqueo de la sede de Novartis, perteneciente al grupo de la empresa multinacional Syngenta, y como consecuencia de ella, quedó bloqueada la puerta de acceso a las oficinas de esa empresa. Más información, imágenes y comunicado en: http://acp.sindominio.net/article.pl?sid=04/12/16/2232218 Poco a poco, pero entre tod@s estamos construyendo una resistencia contra la imposición transgénica.



LOCAL PUBLIC ACCESS NEEDS SPEAKERS/WRITERS

Portland, 11.01.2005 20:00

Lessons from the Tenncare Fight

Tennessee, 11.01.2005 08:35

#media_2097;left# As the national election headed for its depressing end last month, another defeat awaited us locally. Governor Phil Bredesen made it clear that he was prepared to strip more than 400,000 Tennesseans of their TennCare health coverage. Although the extent of the cuts is not completely clear, the end result will be a defeat for working and poor people. Any major cutback in social services always is. But we can and must learn from our mistakes in failing to successfully challenge this assault on our standard of living.



KFC Dubbed &quot;Kentucky Fried Cruelty&quot;

San Francisco Bay Area, 11.01.2005 06:39

Over 750,000,000 chickens raised for KFC every year endure egregious and unnecessary abuses. Undercover investigators and former employees have documented numerous such abuses in KFC supplier slaughterhouses and other facilities. KFC has so far refused to implement comprehensive guidelines developed by its own animal welfare panelists to prevent these and other abuses. In response, organizations such as Bay Area Vegetarians and others throughout the United States and abroad are supporting People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals' campaign against KFC's inhumane practices and calling for welfare reforms. Locally, regular monthly demonstrations have occurred in front of KFCs in San Francisco, San Jose, Pacifica, and Santa Cruz, with plans to expand the actions to Santa Clara, Sunnyvale, Cupertino and more.

Urban Adventure League Does Palm Tree Ride

Portland, 11.01.2005 02:30

The Urban Adventure League conducts various bicycle rides and walking tours around Portland. Their latest on Sunday, 9 January, was a ride to celebrate the various tropical plants that grow around town.

The ride began in Ladd's Circle and wound around the Hosford-Abernathy neighborhood, into Sunnyside, over Sullivan's Gulch and into Irvington, ending with a surprise of wonderful tea and muffins provided by the family that lives at the ride's endpoint. Along the way we saw a variety of vegetation more likely to be found far south of here: 3 or 4 types of palms but also eucalyptus, monkey-puzzle, and more. Shawn, the ride's leader, also commented on architectural and urban history along the way.

It was indeed a fun and informative time, and I would encourage anyone to check out future Urban Adventure League events.

Info on the elections in Paelestine from a solidarity worker

Portland, 10.01.2005 21:49

This is something that my friend emailed me about what is really happening around the Palestinian elections. I have prepared an audio report on the Palestinian elections, held yesterday, which you can listen to online: here is the script...

On Sunday January 9, Palestinians held their first presidential election since 1996, electing Mahmoud Abbas as the new Palestinian President, while the Israeli occupation and ongoing military incursions in both the West Bank and Gaza Strip continue.

On Friday the 7th, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon claimed that the army had pulled out of certain areas of the West Bank to facilitate the elections, but the Palestinian Authority countered that there was no evidence of any troop pullout, and checkpoints remained closed. The town of Beta remained under military curfew -- residents there were unable to vote. And residents of the Al-Mawasi area in Khan Younis refugee camp were barred from voting due to a military closure of their area.

Nearly 200,000 Palestinians live in East Jerusalem on the Israeli side of the separation barrier, 160,000 of them are eligible voters -- the largest single bloc of Palestinian voters. In the preparations for Sunday's elections, East Jerusalem saw Israeli obstruction of voter registration, harassment of registrants, confiscation of registration materials, and the arrests of two candidates who tried to campaign there... halfway through the election day, former US President Jimmy Carter accused Israel of obstructing elections in East Jerusalem. Only then did Israeli authorities agree to allow the 160,000 East Jerusalem voters to vote within their city.



A Beautiful Occupation!

Local News Lies about PJTTF Renewal

Portland, 10.01.2005 13:10

Faux "News" (unfair and imbalanced yet again) lies twice in an article about the Portland and the upcoming vote to renew participation in the JTTF. Please do read the Faux article, and see if you can spot the two lies. Then, check out some local coverage of the Faux coverage. Randy Leonard has left a comment at the bottom of the article to confirm one of Faux's (apparently deliberate) lies.

Whatever the reason for Faux's factual misrepresentations, I think it would be great if we all sent letters of support to Leonard and Adams for demanding proper oversight, and letters to Sten and Potter to let them know that a "no" vote has our support. And polite letters to Saltzman letting him know that (contrary to his claim in the article) he, not the rest of the crew, is the one missing the big picture. We do have a chance to defeat the JTTF this year.



Urgent SHAC Alert

Portland, 10.01.2005 13:03

Tragedy Central: In the course of this campaign we have run up against the biggest and the most well protected companies in the world. From the 200 billion dollar a year pharmaceutical industry, the world biggest financial firms, to the largest insurance broker on the planet and the UK and US governments no less. Now present before our eyes is what can only be seen as Huntingdon's most desperate last bid for corporate survival. Hidden behind another name is the emerging clinical division to the lab. As the clinical laboratory arm to Huntingdon Life Sciences, Centralabs actively recruits much needed business to the lab in areas it could not previously compete for. Centralabs is one and the same with Huntingdon. Huntingdon's survival largely depends on the success of the sales of their new clinical division.

This week we track down the secret asset to HLS's survival and give them a proper SHAC-style welcome to the campaign. Trying to sell the dark services of HLS we must compassionately root out their marketing ploy.

PLEASE - take 20 minutes this week for all those animals suffering in vivisection labs and help us expose Centralabs as the rather sinister new front to Huntingdon. Write, email, call, fax, and PROTEST HLS as it begs for business scraps at this week's major conference in Las Vegas. IF everyone reading this email just spent twenty minutes, our collective voice will be deafening. Visit the URLs below for phone numbers and addresses.

Riot-Folk! Making Folk a Threat Again...

Portland, 10.01.2005 12:29

Last night I went to the riot-folk show at Liberty Hall, here are a couple words and some samples about how great it was! Ryan Harvey went first, started off with a poem, and then went into a very powerful song, about empire. He didnt plug into anything, sang straight from the heart with nothing amplifying his voice...very amazing. After him, an amazing riot-folker, Brenna, played a song which was also very good. I think she played a song called 'implicit' but that might've come later. Then Ethan and Kate got up to play one of their songs, I think they started with 'declaration of war', but I am not sure. IT was traditional folk music, which I am not really into, but when they say that it isnt a peace, it is a declaration of war, something swells up inside of you that is unexplainable and amazing. Then Anna played a song. IT was a great way to see it, no hierarchical decision of who will play first or last.

Another report:The opening band started things off with a bang and statements about personal growth that were awe-inspiring throughout their set, Please Step Out of the Vehicle played a mixture of tunes, some soothing and painful... After that we heard some spoken word from Contajus, the awesome MC, and then Riot Cop went on. This is the first time in years that Riot Cop has played at Liberty Hall. After that the Bastards played, Brittany McNair went on next. Then the Riot Folk performers took us from sorrow to rage and back again, and Ethan and Kate captivated me with their messages; The first one was about anti-racism. It was being sang to pale-skinned folks who mistakenly think that racism is a state of mind.

Anarcha-feminist Stitch'n'Bitch (stitching optional)
Tuesday 1st – Friday 4th of February, 2005, Marama-iti

This year's anarcha-feminist convergence will be a rare opportunity for women to gather in a safe space, and find the collective strength to fight for our liberation. It should also be damn good fun. We've set aside the first two days (tues, weds) for networking, planning, prioritising and having some serious korero about women's issues. Thursday and Friday will be a celebration of our strengths and creativity, with music, crafts, physical activities, and open space for spontaneous skill-shares and workshops. All women, intersex and transgender people who share the basic principles of anti-authoritarian, anti-capitalist feminism are warmly invited on the understanding that the kaupapa of this event is anarcha-feminist.

Denny Inman, a Champaign County Adminstrator failed to bring the phone contract before the board in a timely manner. Whether the timing was calculated or inadvertent, the result is that some members of the finance committee seem to be resigned to renewing the present phone contract because there is not adequate time to put the contract out for bid.

US Military Considering Modelling War In Iraq After Reagan's War In El Salvador

San Francisco Bay Area, 09.01.2005 21:39

1/9/2005: According to Newsweek magazine, the Pentagon is debating whether to set up Central American style death squads (using Kurdish militia members) to target leaders of the Iraq insurgency. "The Pentagon’s latest approach is being called 'the Salvador option'" it is an "option that dates back to a still-secret strategy in the Reagan administration’s battle against the leftist guerrilla insurgency in El Salvador in the early 1980s. Then, faced with a losing war against Salvadoran rebels, the U.S. government funded or supported 'nationalist' forces that allegedly included so-called death squads directed to hunt down and kill rebel leaders and sympathizers. Eventually the insurgency was quelled, and many U.S. conservatives consider the policy to have been a success—despite the deaths of innocent civilians and the subsequent Iran-Contra arms-for-hostages scandal. (Among the current administration officials who dealt with Central America back then is John Negroponte, who is today the U.S. ambassador to Iraq. Under Reagan, he was ambassador to Honduras.)"

Agenturschluss 2005

Germany, 09.01.2005 14:00

Zum Auftakt von Hartz IV wurden in 83 St�dten Arbeitsagenturen besetzt. Insgesamt protestierten weniger als erwartet gegen die Arbeitsmarktreformen. In Berlin behinderte ein starkes Polizeiaufgebot die Protestaktionen in Wedding. Die Polizeigewalt richtete sich auch gegen Unbeteiligte. Das Eindringen und die Besetzung der Arbeitsagenturen in Prenzlberg/Pankow, Kreuzberg und Mitte konnte sie nicht verhindern. Auch in anderen St�dten kam es zu Polizei�bergriffen. Am Abend des 03.01.05 wurden die Montagsdemonstrationen fortgesetzt. In den Mainstream-Medien wurden die Proteste diskreditiert und falsche Zahlen verbreitet.

NEU: Video und Audiobeitrag von Radio Z vom Agenturschluss in N�rnberg
Agenturschluss: �bersicht �ber gelaufene Aktionen
Danach: Noch lange nicht Schluss mit Agenturschluss

Parallel zu Hartz IV, von dem nicht nur Arbeitslose betroffen sind, werden seit dem 1.1.2005 mit zahlreichen neuen Gesetzen die Grundrechte weiter abgebaut. So werden beispielsweise E-Mails fl�chendeckend und verdachtsunabh�ngig �berwacht. Ab April soll es dann den Internetradios an den Kragen gehen.



Bankgeheimnis verschwindet am 1. April

Germany, 09.01.2005 14:00

Es ist leider kein Aprilscherz, sondern eher ein Weihnachtswunsch des sozialdemokratischen Finanzministers Hans Eichel. F�nf Tage vor Weihnachten, am 19. Dezember 2004, hatte er das sogenannte Gesetz zur F�rderung der Steuerehrlichkeit im Bundestag durchgewunken. Ab dem 01. April 2005 wird damit die digitale Rasterfahndung durch 500 Millionen deutsche Konten legalisiert. Begr�ndet wird der Eingriff in die im Grundgesetz zugesicherte Privatsph�re mit dem Kampf gegen Geldw�sche, Steuerhinterziehung und Terrorismus. Doch die Leidtragenden sind Studierende, Rentner, Kinder-, Wohn-, Arbeitslosen- und Sozialgeld-Empf�ngerinnen und Empf�nger. BAf�G-Stellen, Sozial�mter, Finanz�mter und die Bundesagentur f�r Arbeit k�nnen dann fl�chendeckend Kontost�nde �berpr�fen. Ein Anfangsverdacht oder ein richterlicher Beschluss sind dann nicht mehr n�tig.



Protesting Racism In South West Portland

Portland, 09.01.2005 08:46

The Portland community responded enthusiastically today, Saturday, January 8, 2005, against white power organizing in the Southwest Portland Gabriel Park neighborhood. One gathering, at the park itself, prepared to directly confront the Tualatin Valley Skins who had announced in December that they would be at the park on this date in order to distribute literature. The white power recruiting drive, failed to materialize. This gathering drew in about 350 people, and finished off with a rally which perservered despite occasional rain and hail showers.

Another group met at the Multnomah Center, about a mile away from Gabriel Park. This Unity Rally, as it was called, drew a crowd in excess of a 1000 people, I would estimate. The Multnomah Center event featured numerous speakers, including the new mayor Tom Potter and County Commissioner Serena Cruz, ministers and members of minority communities, as well as a few musical interludes. Each event provided people the opportunity to protest racism and hate in a manner more in harmony with their own temperament and philosophy. Both sought to defend the neighborhood from invasion and spoke out for diversity of culture, race and religion. Whether in your face, or at a rally celebrating diversity with strong words and music, the community gathered together in their different ways and stood vocal and defiant against racism and hatred.
