Picket To Stop OneSource From Abusing Janitors

San Francisco Bay Area, 25.01.2005 18:51

The Transamerica Pyramid is San Francisco's most famous building, but ever since a co-worker died on the job, the janitors who clean it have been fighting to stop Transamerica's cleaning company, OneSource, from abusing them. The janitors have reported discrimination, harassment, and unsafe working conditions. OneSource has failed to address janitor's concerns and continues to pile impossible - and unsafe - amounts of work on janitors around the city, including the Transamerica Pyramid.

Dispute Over Who Blocked Street First On June 8th- Police, or Protesters?

San Francisco Bay Area, 25.01.2005 18:48

"Were you at the 2004 Biotech Protest in San Francisco on June 8th? Were you there early in the morning, that is prior to 7:00am? Do you remember the streets, in particular, 4th coming south from Mission down to Howard, being blocked off by the police? And/or do you remember seeing 3rd being blocked going north to Howard? A number of protesters are still facing charges for 'willfully and substantially blocking the free passage' of others when they sat down or stood in the intersections of 4th and Howard and at 3rd and Howard." The legal team for the protesters who were arrested on the morning of June 8th, 2004 at the Reclaim the Commons "Shut Down San Francisco" protest are seeking witnesses for this case whose outcome, they think, will set a precedent on protest in SF.

The dire plight of native forests in the Biscuit: Siskiyou Project's Rolf Skar interviewed on pdx indymedia web radio

Portland, 25.01.2005 17:59

Today, Rolf Skar of the Siskiyou Project was interviewed on the pdx indymedia web radio show, "On the Air", about the plight of the Biscuit Timber Sale. As reported on this site (here and here), the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals recently lifted its temporary restriction on logging in Old-Growth Reserves at the Biscuit timber sale, opening a floodgate of destruction there. Rolf is deeply involved with efforts to protect this area and we talked to him about that struggle, the history of the Biscuit fire, fire ecology in general, and the challenges of organizing in such rural country.

Biscuit is the largest timber sale in modern history, threatening 19,465 acres, with an expected take of 372,000,000 board feet. The area is a pocket of hithertoo mostly unlogged native forest supporting one of the most diverse ecosystems on earth. Not merely a Cascadian treasure, this area is globally unique. That any human being would consider it acceptable to even consider destroying it speaks volumes about how truly dispicable our so-called "civilization" has become. By the middle of the interview, i was boilin' f'n mad at the greed and stupidity of the forces plotting this crime. Why do people suck so much?

Fortunately, Rolf offered some hope, and some concrete ideas for how to help...

Benton Harbor: Blast top cop

Michigan, 25.01.2005 05:15

BENTON HARBOR, MI – Despite dozens of citizen complaints and allegations about police brutality and sexual harassment of residents, Benton Harbor’s police chief received the Martin Luther King Jr. Diversity Award from Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm.

The award, given to Chief Sam Harris during the Jan. 19 observation of King’s birthday, came from Lake Michigan College.

The award stunned residents of this African-American enclave bedeviled by racial poverty and surrounded by wealthy communities, including Saint Joseph.



J 20: Counter-Inaugural Protests Snow on Bush Parade

Chicago, 25.01.2005 05:06


logoDespite blustery weather and repressive security measures, tens of thousands from across the US converged in Washington DC on Jan 20th to protest the second inauguration of George Bush. And what was meant to be a victory lap turned into an embarrasing public spectacle for the President and his supporters as protesters made their resistance felt. [ See NYC-IMC video: Mandate? ]

As the Presidential motorcade sped past 4th and Pennsylvania Avenue Thursday afternoon, an estimated 10,000 protesters unloaded with all the creative invective they could muster. Thousands more were blocked at checkpoints along the inaugural route by a massive police and military presence that included Chicago police. At one point, the parade came to a complete standstill as clashes broke out between demonstrators and police wielding pepper spray and batons. A handful of anti-war activists also successfully infiltrated the invitation-only VIP viewing section to display banners condemning the occupation of Iraq before being ejected by police.

Earlier in the morning, thousands of protesters gathered for a mass march from Malcolm X Park that surged down 16th St. toward the White House. Many continued to march in smaller groups along the Inaugural security perimeter throughout the afternoon. Counter-inaugural actions -- and clashes with police -- continued late into the night.

Forced Uniformity by Mumia-Abu Jamal

Portland, 25.01.2005 04:13

War helps the recovery of the state. War automatically sets in motion irresistible forces of uniformity in the whole society, that passionate agreement of the majority with the state leadership against minorities and individuals who lack the necessary herd instinct..

In light of the last US presidential election, the next four years will stand under the sign of continuous wars. Nothing will change even in 2008 regardless of who is elected president. The largest supposed opposition party will not dare to effectively oppose the present government line because it essentially depends on the gifts of large corporations. The Democratic Party is afraid of posing as "unpatriotic" or even worse as "too soft on terrorism". The democrats know that millions of Americans are ready to bear the burdens of war, even of a "dirty war" instigated under pretexts and with one of the worst motives: greed.

ALF Liberates Entire Deer Population from GNK Deer Farm

Portland, 25.01.2005 04:07

San Miguel, CA- In the early morning hours of January 18, members of the Animal Liberation Front liberated the entire imprisoned deer population of GNK Deer Farm in Monterey County, California. These deer were doomed to certain death at the early age of 18 months at the hand of owner Gerd Konieczny, a former butcher and LA cop who raises the deer for profit and fun, by his own admission.

Comment:i feel a sense of liberation for the freed deers yet i also wonder what impact releasing these imprisoned animals has. we know that they face a life of certain death, but in the process of freeing them, does it cause the death of yet more creatures

A Review of Howard Zinn’s &quot;Artists in Times of War&quot;

Tennessee, 24.01.2005 22:40

Perhaps what a capitalist society does in wartime is not unique, is not different in kind from the everyday occurrences of peacetime. The corporate media slants news reports during war, and does the same between wars. Individuals are arrested and imprisoned for expressing unpopular opinions by judges who champion the grandeur of the very Constitution that they subvert. Racist oppression and class divisions have lives of their own, outside the confines of the military. Still, it may be truly said that wartime concentrates our attention, focuses on and makes appallingly clear the same social flaws that may be found in times of peace...

Timothy Stansbury, 1 Year Later

NYC, 24.01.2005 21:03

Early in the morning of Jan. 24, 2004, 19-year old Timothy Stansbury was gunned down by NYPD officer Richard Neri as he opened the door to the roof of his building in the Louis Armstrong housing project in Bedford-Stuyvesant. Stansbury was unarmed and Police Commissioner Ray Kelly quickly acknowledged there was "no apparent reason" for the killing. A Brooklyn grand jury refused to indict Neri for the shooting. A year later, "Bullets in the Hood", a documentary about the shooting and its aftermath is playing at the Sundance Film Festival. Nell Geiser of WBAI's Rise Up Radio recently spoke with the two neighborhood youth--Terrence Fisher and Daniel Howard-- who produced the film.

Anti WEF in Zwitserland

Netherlands, 24.01.2005 16:28

Zoals elk jaar in januari komen vanaf 26 januari politieke en economische zwaargewichten in het Zwisterse Davos achter gesloten deuren samen voor het Wereld Economisch Forum (WEF), om een zogenaamd "sociaal tintje" te geven aan de kapitalistische globalisering.

Zoals gebruikelijk wordt daartegen ook actie[Fr|De] gevoerd door een anti-WEF Alliantie. Dit jaar begonnen de acties al op vrijdag 21 januari en zijn er nog meer acties gepland tot het eind van het WEF op zaterdag 29 januari.

Ook worden, naar oude gewoonte, heel wat restricties opgelegd aan de acties, zo was de ludieke streetparty in Bern verboden. De politie trad keihard op, zelfs in zo'n mate dat er protest kwam in het parlement. Verder kregen 250 activisten een inreisverbod en zelfs het leger heeft 6500 manschappen paraat.

Naast de verboden demo in Bern waren er ook reeds acties in o.a. Basel, Lugano, Genève, Davos zelf en in Burgdorf was er een spontane steunactie voor wat in Bern gebeurde.

In de loop van volgende week staan nog meer acties gepland, zoals een toegelaten demo in Davos op 29 januari, de uitreiking van de Public Eye Awards op 26 januari en een toneelstuk van Dadavos. Verder zitten er nog meer acties in de pijplijn, die zullen worden aangekondigd op o.a. Indymedia Zwitserland [Fr|De]

Called, "the Uncle Tom of the white race" by right-wing author Dinesh D'Souza, Tim Wise is one of the leading anti-racist writers and activists in the U.S. He currently serves as Director of the Association for White Anti-Racist Education (AWARE) in Nashville, Tennessee.

FBI Agent offers weak justification for Portland's JTTF participation

Portland, 24.01.2005 06:44

At some point in the near future, the Portland City Council will vote as to whether or not Portland will continue its participation with the Joint Terrorism Task Force. The vote, which is supposed to occur every year, has been delayed several times already, and is long overdue. The repeated delays have prompted speculation that the FBI is afraid the vote will not pass, and is trying to stall for time while it frantically tries to build support.

In the Fri, Jan 21 edition of the Portland Tribune, FBI Special Agent Robert Jordan tries to sell us on the importance of our continued participation in the Portland Joint Terrorism Task Force. His arguments weren't very compelling for me.

On January 20th, 2005 about 100 people came out in freezing weather to join a Theater of the Absurd and the Charade of a Parade in Traverse City Michigan as Bush swore to, "faithfully execute the orifice of the president" or as the chorus chanted, "execute Iraqis, Afghanis, Texans, gays! Killing people in so many ways!"
Billionaires for Bush, Mother Earth, Chief Justice, Musicians and, of course, the Emperor himself were in attendance. The Down Home Security Department was on hand to keep the peace.

Once the window was opened the protesters did NOT attempt to pass through or rush the police line on the other side. It was a symbolic act against the fences and barricads of the empire weather they be physical, economic or political.

Bake sale for Tre Arrow Legal Defense a delicious success!

Portland, 23.01.2005 21:37

The weekly Farmers' Market at People's Food Co-op was blessed with a delicious addition this last Wednesday: a bake sale of vegan goodies to raise funds for Tre Arrow's legal defense. Tre was a well known person around the Co-op back when he lived in this part of Cascadia, and support for him was strong at this event. Lots of folks stopped by to have a cookie and leave some money in the donation jar. The weather was just gorgeous (being unseasonably warm and sunny, which is maybe a little spooky -- global warming?) and organizers declared the event a resounding success. read more >>A message from Tre ArrowI want to thank you for the love and peoples' energy---I can feel it and it helps immensely!!

January 22nd Rally and Marches on SF's Stand Up for Choice Day

San Francisco Bay Area, 23.01.2005 19:24

1/22/2004: The San Francisco Board of Supervisors declared that January 22nd, 2005 was "Stand Up for Choice Day" in advance of today's protests. About five thousand people gathered this morning for a Roe v. Wade Anniversary Demonstration that included a rally on Market Street and a march to the location of an anti-choice rally. After the march, participants lined the Embarcadero as the "pro-lifers" paraded towards the Fisherman's Wharf tourist district. The route of the parade was stopped twice by pro-choice protesters. Police kept the women's rights advocates out of the street as much as possible, divided them up on the sidewalks, and escorted the anti-choice march through Fort Mason, down Marina, to the park area where a post-march anti-choice "Information Faire" was to be held. The pro-choice march was eventually allowed through Fort Mason and headed to the Marina Green.
