Independent Media Space Opens to Cover Inauguration

DC, 17.01.2005 16:42

The Inauguration Media Coalition is providing a media resource center with high speed Internet access and facilities for doing audio, video, print, photo and Web media. Contact: 202-332-4481 * www.inaugurationmedia.org * www.dc.indymedia.org The space will be open between Saturday, January 15 and Friday, January 21. It will be open from 10 AM-10 PM every day, except for Inauguration Day, when it will be open from 8 AM until 10 PM, and on January 21, when it will be open until 8 PM. The media resource center is located at 624 T St. NW, Washington, DC, at the intersection of T St. and 7th St. NW, near the Shaw/Howard University stop on the green line. During the Inauguration of President George W. Bush on January 20, 2005, the mainstream media will be buzzing with coverage of parties, parades, and speeches, costing the American people tens of thousands of dollars. This same mainstream media provided almost no coverage of the protests and general dissent surrounding the 2000 Inauguration. The Inauguration Media Coalition is determined that independent messages are heard.

Keeping the Dream Alive

Portland, 17.01.2005 04:35

On Monday, January 17, 2005, beginning with a noon National Bell Ringing Ceremony, Color Guards and national anthems, Greater Portland will join hands to celebrate the life and work of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

"Keep Alive the Dream" reminds us all, as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. did so eloquently and so powerfully, that "we are all bound together in a single garment of destiny. The setbacks of September 11, 2001, remind us that "What affects one, affects us all", and that "a Freedom is never free". The indomitable spirit of the American people must keep their own dreams alive by being ever the more responsible and active in the pursuit of justice and hard-won freedom and democracy.

Celebration begins at noon until 7:00 pm and asks just a donation of $5.00 or three cans of food. Go to www.worldartsfoundation.org for a list of performers and speakers.

Men who batter women are terrorists

Santa Cruz, CA, 16.01.2005 22:32

"Domestic violence" is overwhelmingly MALE violence against women. The FBI's definition of terrorism is, "the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce the government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof in furtherance of political or social objectives."

Men who batter women use force and violence to "intimidate or coerce" in furtherance of their "social objective" – male supremacy. Since women are a "segment" of "the civilian population," men who batter them are legally "terrorists."

Presently, men control religion and government. Thus, issues which particularly interest and affect women such as domestic violence, the environment, housing, child care, job training, education, family planning, and health care are chronically underfunded – if they're funded at all.

Wife-beating is a "traditional family value." The "Rule of Thumb" was a law allowing Englishmen to beat their wives with a stick "no thicker than a man's thumb" to make them obey. According to the U.S. surgeon general, battering is the number one "health" problem of women in America.

Tre Arrow: A personal message and upcoming events

Portland, 16.01.2005 19:41

Speaking with Tre recently he asked that we send his love, and most grateful appreciation to all his supporters. He is aware that support is growing as more people become aware of his side of the story, and is very grateful to all those who have given their strength and spirit to help.

  • Vegan Bake Sale
  • Wednesday, Jan 19th, 2pm
  • People's Co-op Farmers' Market
  • 3029 SE 21st Ave
  • All proceeds go to Tre
Specifically he asked that I express that no assistance is too little. Sometimes people (including myself) experience a sense of helplessness as they are unsure about how they may help, or if they are helping enough. He noted that he understands that sometimes people feel this way towards his situation, and asks us all to remember that even thoughts and prayers aid him in his struggle.

Thank you Tre, and thank you to all of the supporters who do whatever they can to bring justice to his life.

Abbas' Election Leaves The Palestinian Plight Largely Unchanged

San Francisco Bay Area, 16.01.2005 18:57

1/16/2005 Mahmoud Abbas, was sworn in on Saturday January 15th as President of the Palestinian National Authority. Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon had phoned Mahmoud Abbas on Tuesday the 11th "to congratulate him on his election as Palestinian president and offer cooperation, the highest-level contact between the sides in nearly four years". Just two days later there was a small attack by a handful of militants on a crossing between Gaza and Israel. Despites Abbas' calls for a ceasefire and the limited time he had between the election and the attack, Sharon's response was to once again cut all ties with the Palestinian leadership and "has given orders for troops to carry out unlimited operations against Palestinian fighters in the Gaza Strip".

Four women protesting against the Crawley and
Horsham Hunt in West Sussex were seriously injured last weekend (8th Jan) after a hunt supporter attacked them with a wooden pole. The attack is the latest of numerous violent assaults against hunt saboteurs.

Biscuit Timber Sale Emergency

Portland, 16.01.2005 07:14

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals lifted its temporary restriction on logging in Old-Growth Reserves at the Biscuit timber sale. With some logging already ongoing, this decision opens the floodgates for seven (7) separate timber sales, affecting thousands of acres of wild, old-growth forests surrounding the world-class Kalmiopsis Wilderness Area.

The Biscuit fire burned through many reserves that are home to ancient trees that have experienced fire for millennia. In total, the Bush Forest Service is planning to log 6,300 acres of these old-growth reserves as part of the so-called "Biscuit Fire Recovery Project." Old-growth reserves are special places normally set aside from logging to provide a safety net of habitat for sensitive wildlife species.

North Coast Earth First! visted by Pacific Lumber; Tree-Sitters' Gear BurnedHumboldt county, CA.-After an early Wednesday morning visit by tree-sit extractor Eric Schatz, two tree-sitters in the Rattlesnake Creek forest that feeds the headwaters of the Mattole River are now threatened with extraction as Maxxam/PL security arrives on the site today. The tree-sitters are teachers at a local environmental school, and the sits were put up last summer to save the old growth Douglas Fir grove and call attention to the crisis in the steep Mattole River watershed caused by Maxxam/Pacific Lumber's clearcutting, helicopter logging, road building, herbicide use, and cutting of old growth trees. read more >>

A new community center starts February 1 in the Hollywood area

Portland, 16.01.2005 06:58

After having being stabbed in the back by the YMCA, and saying it will close Jan 31, the members decided to make the NE 'Y' into a community center. The facility at 1639 NE 38 (just off NE Sandy Blvd) has a swimming pool, basketball court/gym, and weight room and cardio vascular machines, showers and saunas. It offers exercise classes for seniors, swimming classes for kids, open basketball times, aerobics and much more.

This place has always welcomed everyone, regardless of whether you are young or old, black or white, gay or straight, man or woman. The thrust for this community center came from the displaced members. It has nothing to do with the 'C' in the YMCA. I'm not a Christian.

As the force if the state continues to occupy Iraq, the U.S. government continues to force our family members, friends and lovers to stay in Iraq. As it is evident the war in Iraq has been lost, and should have never been started in the first place. The only option is to bring the U.S. soldiers home, because imperialist settlers have never and will never bring democracy anywhere.

Each person in these photo's represents more than 100 civilians killed by U.S. Aggression in Iraq.I hope these photo's are inspiring to the american resistance.

The Black Book of U.S. Imperialism: Ward Churchill's 'Roosting Chickens'

NYC, 16.01.2005 04:49

Todd Gitlin, Paul Berman and assorted intellectuals of the “decent left” have earned their keep arguing that anti-imperialism is nothing but an echo chamber of nihilism, oedipal rage and tacit support for whomever the governing class declares the enemy. Once upon a time their kind derided the Communist left as window dressing for the gulag; now they argue with parallel duplicity that anti-imperialists are shills for “Islamo-fascist” death cults and suicide bombers. As the gate-keepers of acceptable dissent, that is to say “none,” they rarely take time to note what it is, this America, they’ve declared their loyalty to and what it is exactly the “anti-Americans” oppose.

Tech Solidarity Work Party: Help Make Computers For Bolivia and Venezuela

Portland, 15.01.2005 23:03

Portland activists and geeks are spending 6 days over the next 2 weeks assembling computers which will be send to community centers and schools in Bolivia and Venezuela. You can take part by lending a hand.

Both Bolivia and Venezuela are in the very midst of big social and political upheavals as their people struggle for equality and liberty. Part of this struggle involves the closing of the "digital divide" and access to communication technology like computers that can help them tell their stories and stay in touch with activists elsewhere. To this end activists in the global north are engaged in what is known as "Tech Solidarity." Previous projects have sent computers to Ecuador in 2002 and Paraguay (by way of Argentina) in 2003.

We're having 6 days of work parties at Free Geek, at southeast 10th and Market Street, in Portland: January 15-17 and January 22-24
