Pack the courts-APOC trials starts Monday, 2/7

NYC, 07.02.2005 13:52

It is important for everyone to come tomorrow to the beginning of the APOC trial. Lets show some active Solidarity people! Show up at: Brooklyn Criminal Court, 120 Schemerhorn, Monday, February 7th, 2005 at 9AM

On November 16, 2003 a group of people of color came together to celebrate, enjoy themselves, and raise money for Anarchist People of Color (APOC) to recoup travel expenses. People through out the organizing community in NYC and beyond were present. Plain clothes police officers showed up to the benefit party hosted by Critical Resistance and within the course of minutes were followed by 20 police cars. They indiscriminately sprayed chemical agents and beat members of our community.

UPDATE: The APOC trial may be delayed until March 14. Please stay tuned to this page for updates.



Stan wojenny w Nepalu

Poland, 07.02.2005 13:22

We wtorek, pierwszego lutego, w Nepalu wprowadzono stan wojenny. Wszystkie środki komunikacji zostały odcięte zaraz po tym, jak król Gyanendra ogłosił odwołanie parlamentu i podstawowych praw konstytucyjnych. Połączenia lotnicze zostały zawieszone, drogi zablokowane, a inne środki transportu są opóźnione. Uzbrojone siły przeciwdemonstracyjne stoją w gotowości. Przywódcy głównych partii politycznych, związków zawodowych i studenckich przetrzymywani są w aresztach domowych lub tymczasowych. Wojska stacjonują w siedzibach wydawnictw każdego dziennika w celu cenzurowania materiałów. Strajk maoistów obserwowany jest na zewnątrz Kathamandu.

Portland, 07.02.2005 07:04

The rally to save the Wild Siskiyou's was held yesterday just outside Selma Oregon. The Rally drew car pools of forest supporter's and defenders from the Siskiyou's area, Ashland, Eugene, and Portland. The Rally had a diverse group of folk's, cool music, dancing trees and salmon, and inspiring speakers. In the background was the wild and endangered Siskiyou National Forest.

It ended by providing everyone a way in which they could plug into various actions to save a unique and completely wild national forest from taming. read more >>

Sacramento Board of Supervisors to Consider Medical Cannabis

San Francisco Bay Area, 07.02.2005 07:00

The Sacramento County Board of Supervisors will be meeting to consider an ordinance regulating medical cannabis dispensaries next Tuesday, February 8th at 2:15 PM, in room 1450 of 700 H Street in Sacramento. The ordinance would regulate locations and operation of dispensaries in the county. Time is subject to change as the agenda comes out. Last year the County suspended marijuana dispensaries in the county pending recommendations from a group that was going to study medical marijuana possibilities for the county.



Giant KFC Protest in San Francisco

San Francisco Bay Area, 07.02.2005 07:00

Over 100 activists descended upon the KFC at Eddy and Polk in San Francisco Sunday February 5th for what normally would have been the noontime lunch rush. It was enough to cover all four corners of the intersection. Many long-time animal activists remarked that this was the largest animal rights demonstration that they had ever attended. High turnout was largely due to the fact that this weekend PETA held the first of eight 2005 "Helping Animals 101" two-day conferences just a few blocks away. It was the first demo ever for approximately half of those out there, and organizers hope that these newly-minted activists will help strengthen the ongoing PETA-initiated KFC demos around the Bay Area which are sponsored locally by grassroots groups such as Bay Area Vegetarians, Animal Rights Alliance, and East Bay Animal Advocates.

Bring Peace Talks to Seida Please

United Kingdom, 07.02.2005 01:01

Twenty Israeli military vehicles and two bulldozers have been occupying the village of Sieda in the northern Tulkarem district since early this morning placing the village under curfew and conducting house to house searches.Electricity and the water supply in the village have been cut off. The Israeli military has closed all entrances to the village and are occupying the boys' school. Two family homes, belonging to Mohammed Zaki Raddad and Hussein Raddad are also occupied. Villagers fear that the bulldozers are there to demolish the homes of families of men wanted by the Israeli army. Volunteers from Canada, England and Denmark, who work with the International Solidarity Movement, are present in the homes where the Israeli soldiers are occupying the roof and ground floor of the homes, trapping the family inside on one floor. Israeli soldiers have invaded the village every night since the Eid, searching homes and harassing villagers. The soldiers have told the villagers they intend to remain in the village for at least three days.

Some settler children, wearing yellow stars, were harassing voters and electoral observers outside the Jaffa gate post office...."Meanwhile an ISM volunteer in a village under military curfew without electricity or water asks Bring Peace Talks to Seida Please.

Slaughter's Proposals for &quot;Rethinking The War on Terror&quot; Need Rethinking

Tennessee, 06.02.2005 22:06

When I received notice of the lecture "Rethinking the War on Terror" I was hoping for a refreshing new perspective on the "war on terror," which has been hyped by the Bush Administration as a legitimate war for the past three years. This "war" which has resulted in the deaths of over 100,000 Iraqis and has cost the national treasury hundreds of billions of dollars has been presented as a new kind of warfare, which is really just an old kind of warfare in disguise. In 1964, when Lyndon Johnson was president of the United States, there were only 35,000 American troops in Vietnam. By the end of his administration there were 600,000. His war, was a "war on terrorists", Vietcong, or as they were called by Robert MacNamara, "Guerilla Insurgents." Sound familiar? Apparently nothing has changed in forty years.

Time Magazine's &quot;Twixters&quot; Label for 24-28 yo's Coping With The Bush Economy: My Advice

Portland, 06.02.2005 18:54

The Jan 24th edition of Time's cover story was dedicated to mid-20-somethings unable to find work, despite a 4-year degree, record tuition debt, and traditional trends of getting married, having kids, and buying houses by the time they are 22...

I would argue that what we are seeing is the inevitable impact of Bush Admin fiscal policy that rewards corporations for sending jobs overseas, tightens funding for educational grants and low interest student loans, and caters to global capitalism, rather than serve the electorate and nation it is responsible for.

Searching for the article, which Time won't display online without a $4.95 fee, I found a multitude of conservative editorials aimed at the article. They saw it as "liberal bias" from Time, which is far from a "liberal" establishment, but cited psychologists, sociologists, and economists, who felt that this generation's woes were the result of overzealous corporate marketing and a paradigm shift in when people should start getting married and conceiving potential draftees and taxpayers. Overwhelmingly, the conservative feedback was negative.

I believe this is extraodinarily unfair to 20-somethings who have been victimized by this administration and its policies. Without going into how educational dollars should be spent or any critique of the global economy itself, I feel compelled to offer these "Twixters" some advice which I formulated for myself as a student during the first Bush Admin.

Catholic Archdiocese Asks Governor to Address Global Warming

Portland, 06.02.2005 18:50

Wow! In spite of the shameful decision to declare bankruptcy and ignore their responsibility to the community in that respect, the archdiocese just did a really cool thing. Their Office of Justice and Peace just sent the following letter to Kulongowski, Gregoire, and Schwarzenegger. Awesome! Dear Governor; Catholic social teaching calls for bold, generous and compassionate action on behalf of the common good. One of the seven major principles of Catholic social teaching invites the faithful to care for God's creation. As Catholics, we are motivated by a profound respect for creation and the desire to protect our environment for future generations.

The US Catholic Bishops endorsed a response to the issue of global warming at a meeting in June, 2001. In a document entitled Global Climate Change: A Plea for Dialogue, Prudence, and the Common Good the US Catholic Bishops stated:

"We accept the consensus findings of so many scientists and the conclusions of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) as a basis for continued research and prudent action...

Remembering Ossie Davis (1917-2005)

NYC, 06.02.2005 15:58

[From the Open Newswire] When I heard the news today of Ossie Davis' passing, I couldn't help but think of his wife Ruby Dee. They were married in 1948, a marriage that lasted 56 years. Ossie Davis was a human treasure our country should always remember and be proud of. He will be missed in many active movements and communities working for social justice and freedom.

On 2/8 free ourselves from Copyright tyranny

San Diego, 06.02.2005 07:00

This could be a seminal moment in technology liberty

Eyes on the Prize is the most important documentary ever made about the Civil Rights Movement--but copyright restrictions have kept it from the public for the past 10 years. We can't let that continue. On February 8th help us bring this film back to a nationwide audience. Find the film in a library and organize a screening in your city or town.

On Feb 8th we have a chance to free ourselves from the tyranny of copyright law which prevents incredible material like this from being seen and distributed by the people who created it. The entity which holds the rights to the song "Happy Birthday" can prevent work like this from being distributed and that is a crime.

Queer Law Students Want to Kick the Military Off Campus

San Francisco Bay Area, 06.02.2005 03:04

Queer law student groups from UC Berkeley, Golden Gate University, UC Hastings, New College, Santa Clara and the University of San Francisco, terming themselves the Coalition of Queer Law Student Associations (CQLSA), are protesting the military recruitment at the 21st Annual Northern California Public Interest/Public Sector (PI/PS) Legal Careers Day. The event, an all-day career fair for public interest oriented law students hosted by the Public Interest Clearinghouse and nine Northern California law schools, is scheduled for Saturday, February 12th at UC Hasting College of the Law. The protest challenges the decision of organizers of PI/PS day to allow the military to recruit at the event despite the Third Circuit Court of Appeals recent ruling in Fair v. Rumsfeld that universities have a First Amendment right to bar military recruiters from their campuses to protest the Defense Department's policy of excluding gay people from military service

Interview: Naomi Klein and her new Movie &quot;The Take&quot;

Boston, 06.02.2005 01:08

Naomi Klein and Indymedia go way back to our beginnings in Seattle, where she was covering the nascent globalization movement as a columnist for the Toronto Star. Both Klein and Indymedia have grown since then, and maybe the tireless Klein has paced us. She has followed her book “No Logo” in 2000 with “Fences and Windows” in 2002, all the while writing hundreds of articles in publications like The Nation, The Guardian UK, Harper’s, The Toronto Globe and Mail and many others. Now she and her husband, Avi Lewis, have produced “The Take,” a documentary about the occupied factory movement in Argentina. The film has graduated from the film festival circuit into the theatres, and it will be playing at the Brattle all this week (see http://www.brattlefilm.org for times). In her spare time (what little is left) she has been working on a new book about the Washington consensus and it’s effects on countries that are in transition to democracy. In between writing her new book and promoting her new film at the Brattle’s opening night, she found a good chunk of time for an old media comrade, the amorphous Indymedia network.

New York State Judge Rules that Same-Sex Marriage is Legal

San Francisco Bay Area, 05.02.2005 21:47

A New York State court ruled on Friday, February 4th that same-sex couples must be allowed to marry. State Supreme Court Justice Doris Ling-Cohan said in the decision that the basic freedoms that are granted to same-sex loving people under the State Constitution were violated when same-sex couples were not given the right to marry in New York State. The ruling said the Constitution requires same-sex couples to have equal access to marriage, and that the plaintiffs in the case must be given marriage licenses.
