Resistance to ID Cards takes to the Streets

United Kingdom, 01.02.2005 20:30

“The only way we’ll be able to stop this vile scheme is if ordinary people have the courage to stand up to the government." Manchester defy-ID representative"We will be unable to access even basic services.., to drive ...[or] travel abroad unless we consent to this monitoring of our day-to-day lives.” Manchester residentSaturday (29th January) was a day called for action against the government's proposal to introduce identity cards and a National Identity Register in the UK. In Manchester residents opposed to the scheme visited the Manchester offices of PA Consulting Group and Siemens Business Services, two of a number of companies that stand to make considerable profits from the proposed scheme.Meanwhile, out on the streets of Manchester to pass on information on the proposed measure and its implications were the Ministry of Truth (honest gov). Street protests also took place in Liverpool, organised by a local defy-ID group.'ID cards will not be used to build up a profile on innocent people', according to former Home secretary David Blunkett, yet scrutiny of the Bill reveals that a wide-ranging amount of data on people will be stored via the National Identity Register. The card will also be buttressed by a vast array of new state powers and criminal penalties including, for example, 'refusal to obey an order to register' which could be greeted with a fine of £2500.Manchester - Protest Against ID Cards | The Ministry of Truth | ID Cards - Who Profits? | Identity Cards Bill - a brief guide | Liverpool Defy-ID Group Take Action | Defy-ID



Panel Including Ward Churchill Cancelled in New York

San Francisco Bay Area, 01.02.2005 20:24

February 1, 2005: University of Colorado Boulder Professor and longtime American Indian activist Ward Churchill has come under increasing criticism recently because of his view of why the September 11th events happened and could occur again. Prof. Churchill was scheduled to speak at Hamilton College in New York state this Thursday, and family members of people who died in the 9/11 incidents have been protesting his right to speak. Hamilton's website this afternoon indicated that the panel, "Limits on Dissent", has been cancelled due to "safety concerns," even after the event had been moved to a larger building. Churchill's speeches, essay, and book entitled "On the Justice of Roosting Chickens" earned national media attention in the leadup to the cancellation of the event. On January 31st he resigned his post as Chair of the Department of Ethnic Studies at the University of Colorado, but not his teaching position.



Ward Churchill Comes Under Fire for Expressing His Views of 911 Causes

San Francisco Bay Area, 01.02.2005 19:46

February 1, 2005 University of Colorado Boulder Professor and longtime American Indian activist Ward Churchill has come under increasing criticism recently because of his exposure of fundamental yet controversial questions about September 11th and his political view of why such events happened and could occur again. Prof. Churchill was scheduled to speak at Hamilton College in New York state this Thursday, and family members of people who died in the 9/11 incidents have been protesting his right to speak. The Kirkland Project website was changed this afternoon to indicate that the panel, "Limits on Dissent", has been cancelled. A representative of the Kirkland Project said that the cancellation was due to "safety concerns," even after the event had been moved to a larger building. At issue are Churchill's speeches, essay, and book entitled "On the Justice of Roosting Chickens." On January 31st he resigned his post as Chair of the Department of Ethnic Studies, but not his professorship — because he did not want the attention focused on him to reflect on fellow department members.



Detroit Million Worker March Public Speak Out/Forum

Michigan, 01.02.2005 19:30

Fight back against the budget cuts, school closings, service cutbacks, layoffs, utility shutoffs, war & its effect on the budget deficit, attacks on immigrants’ rights, racism & sexism. Let your voice be heard!

Come to a public speak out/forum:
Saturday, February 5 at 1:00PM
at UAW Local 22 Hall, 4300 Michigan Avenue, Detroit, 48210 (just west of W. Grand Blvd.)

Since the historic Washington DC rally last October 17th, the Million Worker March (MWM) has grown into a movement that is setting roots in cities across the nation, including Detroit. In our city we are facing an onslaught of utility shut offs, housing evictions, lay offs, school closings and cuts to vital social services. The politicians give us empty talk at best or, more frequently, further attacks. The Detroit Million Worker March aspires to help unite all our struggles into a single coordinated independent force and voice. It is time to build our own unity as working and unemployed people to claim what is rightfully ours.

Halliburton's plan to divert Great Lakes Water has been stopped

Michigan, 01.02.2005 18:43

Halliburton's plan to bottle Great Lakes water for the US's war for oil in the Middle East have been stopped, for now. Apparently, their funding fell through. Sweetwater had just begun the campaign and was gearing up for a fight. Maybe that caused the already shaky proposal to look out of reach for the venture capitalists who would provide the money. Here are two articles from the corporate media about the bottling scheme. The first is a little older and does a decent job of speaking to the issue. The second is just a snip showing that the bottling plant site has been abandoned in favor of a gear making plant. Allegedly, they are looking for a new site though. Nothing has materialized that we know of yet. If anyone hears anything, let us know.



Walden Bello: Bush Victory Made Possible by Cultural Oppression

San Francisco Bay Area, 01.02.2005 17:51

1/29/2005: Walden Bello is executive director of Focus on the Global South and professor of sociology and public administration at the University of the Philippines. He spoke at a World Social Forum workshop about cultural oppression and the role it played in the last U.S. election: "The cultural dimension is what led the Bush administration to victory by drawing its support largely based on white people in the U.S. If we just limit our analysis to economics and say it is just the corporations or just say it is because of the military industrial complex, we haven’t got it. The Bush administration in fact appeals to traditional forms of cultural oppression through traditional forms of cultural ethnocentrism and of traditional and old forms of racism.”

Homeland Insecurity

NYC, 01.02.2005 17:21

Hearings begin tomorrow on the nomination of Michael Chertoff as the next Director of Homeland security. As the federal government prepares to triple the capacity of its immigrant detention centers, Chertoff – the man who spearheaded sweeping arrests of hundreds, and more likely thousands, of immigrants in the New York area – will most likely move on to implement similar policies as DHS Secretary. The Indypendent spoke with Monami Maulik, founder of the anti-detention group Desis Rising Up and Moving (DRUM) about Chertoff’s nomination and the growing homeland security industry.

Wars For The White Nation

Portland, 01.02.2005 13:32

We Americans claim to be a peace-loving people. We hate bloodshed; we are opposed to violence. Yet we go into spasms of joy over the possibility of projecting dynamite bombs from flying machines upon helpless citizens ... Yet our hearts swell with pride at the thought that America is becoming the most powerful nation on earth, and that it will eventually plant her iron foot on the necks of all other nations. -

The machinery of government sets and enforces the drastic penalties; the minorities are either intimidated into silence, or brought slowly around by a subtle process of persuasion which may seem really to be converting them. War, Bourne explains, creates such wrenching social divisions, that fellow citizens often turn on fellow citizens, with one side, usually the pro-war side, demeaning the other, antiwar side, as traitors to the nation -- as if the nation is the political leadership!

Where, as here, the 'enemy' were nonwhite Arabs, and mostly, folks of an alien faith, it was easy to project them as fair game -- even if Iraq actually hadn't a thing to do with 9/11.

Toxic Greenwash Hazard in Greenpeace Business Lecture

United Kingdom, 01.02.2005 13:23

The 4th Greenpeace Business Conference took place on Tuesday 25th January 2005 at the Royal Society of Arts and was delivered by Lord Oxburgh, Chairman of Shell.Wearing protective radiation suits and wielding home-made greenwash detection and clean-up equipment, The Greenwash Guerrillas were on site to declare the event a 'Toxic Greenwash Hazard', whilst passers-by and would-be attendees were advised to move away from the building. Those insisting on entry were warned that direct physical contact with the levels of ‘Corporate Social Responsibility’ (CSR) anticipated could cause long-term damage to spiritual health. Not to mention the likelihood of becoming a bit-player in a Shell-choreographed CSR soap opera. Full Report and PhotosSee also: London Rising Tide | Corporate Wath - Shell Archive



Why we protest

Portland, 01.02.2005 13:23

Do you have those annoying friends that pester you about going to protests? I sure as hell do. They keep asking you the same stupid questions like, "why do you do it," and, "You know you're not making any difference, why do you keep going?"

Recently, I found out we are the normal ones. Are only wish is to make this world a better place... So heres for all those annoying assholes that just want to start a fight with you. Just say you want to make the world a better place. Tell them that you care, if no one cares, nothing gets done. Tell them that you are change, you are a revolution... What's normal is change and what is change isn't what is normal. So any time a cop, co-worker, classmate, friend or anyone makes fun of your activism tell them that you only hope for a brighter day.



The Death of Gary Webb Revisited

Portland, 01.02.2005 13:21

On December 10, 2004 former investigative reporter for the San Jose Mercury News Gary Webb - who had been on the CIA's "black list" ever since he broke the story of the agency's VILE involvement in flooding the poor black neighborhoods of L.A. with cocaine in the early 1980s - was found dead in his Sacramento area home, an apparent suicide according to the coroner. There was a gunshot wound through his head. No! - make that TWO (possibly three) gunshot wounds, apparently from his father's old .38 caliber revolver.

The fact is, none of the explanations offered by the Sacramento County Coroner's Office, the Sacramento Bee, or Michael Ruppert makes any sense. The most reasonable explanation - though no one wants to admit it - is that Webb was assassinated by someone standing over and behind him.

(Austin, 31 Jan 2005) - Don't count on the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to tell the public about biological weapons accidents.

Activists Appeal City�s Refusal to Permit March on War's 2nd Anniversary

Chicago, 01.02.2005 12:17


logoThis Wednesday, peace activists will appeal the City of Chicago's decision to deny them a permit to march south on Michigan Avenue to the Federal Plaza on March 19 to oppose the second anniversary of the war on Iraq. The City instead wants peace activists to march down empty side-streets well away from public view -- a proposal activists say marginalizes their message in this anti-war city and undercuts their right to free speech and public assembly. The public hearing comes two days after attorneys for hundreds of anti-war protesters asked for class action status in their lawsuit against cops and city officials for illegally detaining and arresting them on March 20, 2003, the day the war began.

Portland, 01.02.2005 06:09

Monday night Portland Indymedia's video collective held their monthly, last-monday video screening of locally produced activist video work at It's a Beautiful Pizza. An unusually large and energetic crowd was present.

Over 60 excited viewers crowded into the restaurant on SE Belmont and 34th to watch several brand-new mini-documentaries about recent local events and actions, including the anti-inauguration protests, the Parry Center struggle, and a recent day-laborer rally.

The World Social Forum Comes To A Close

San Francisco Bay Area, 31.01.2005 21:09

1/31/2005: Porto Alegre, Brazil - The fifth World Social Forum started as an expression of diversity in the world, with many voices that meet the universal wishes for tolerance, justice, peace and equality. And it closes according to these same wishes. But this Forum had the challenge of being more proactive in promoting common issues and proposing actions. It was completely self-organized. All the activities were developed by the participant organizations. Workshops and related events were held in 11 different areas where panels accepted proposals that were discussed. So far, there are 352 proposals from the panels. The proposals are being displayed today. They will be published in a way that movements, organizations and people can read and use them. The Forum helped to inspire many actions that will make organizations and individuals stronger and more organized, with agendas for the whole year. The dialogue and the meetings helped to establish a new world view for many participants and has opened new horizons for international solidarity. In 2006, the World Social Forum will be decentralized, operated in many places of the world. In 2007 it will be in Africa. Self-organized and democratic, the World Social Forum is created by organizations and people who want to build another world with peace, justice and equality. The theme of the World Social Forum is Another World is Possible. Read More

The 'Successful' Elections Bush Never Wanted

NYC, 31.01.2005 14:02

(from Needlenose.com): "As media coverage of yesterday's elections in Iraq swims in phrases like "major test of President Bush's goal of promoting democracy," and as the Bush administration does everything it can to claim credit for their occurrence, it seems like a good moment to take a look back at how they really came about -- through a process in which Dubya and his crew were dragged against their will, kicking and screaming, every step of the way."

Democracy, Late to Dinner as Usual

Portland, 31.01.2005 12:36

By one o'clock in Iraq, at least 27 Iraqis already lay dead. By the end of the day, Al'jazeera reports over 40 dead. As Zarqawi threatened the streets would run with the blood of the electors, this seems to be a victory for the pro-occupation forces, the Americans, and others involved in "securing Iraq." Up to 8 million are expected to be counted in the vote, when the final numbers come back, which officials tell us could take up to ten days.
