Searching for Civil Rights in Tennessee

Tennessee, 22.02.2005 20:22

The same-sex marriage ban passed in the House Committee by a vote of 13 to 4. Two Reps. declined to vote. Apparently they believe there is some political advantage to gain by failing to stand for anything. The four who voted against the marriage ban are all democrats. They are all women. Three out of four are African American. Tennessee progressives should remember their names: Kathryn Bowers (D-Memphis), Barbara Cooper (D-Memphis), Joanne Favors (D-Chattanooga) and Beverly Marrero (D-Memphis).

Midwest Organizers Help Provide Books to Prisoners

Chicago, 22.02.2005 09:52

B4P Since 1990, the United States has seen its prison population increase to the point where the United States now holds the highest incarceration rate in the world, most of whom are held for non-violent crimes.

Many efforts are underway to provide material and human rights support to prisoners -- including educational support. Projects underway in the midwest include Midwest Books to Prisoners, which sends reading materiel to prisoners in eight midwest states; the Urbana-Champaign Books to Prisoners Project, a project affiliated with Urbana-Champaign Indymedia which works with Illinois prisoners; and Chicago Books to Women in Prison, which provides books for incarcerated women nationwide.

The Haiti Action Committee has announced a Monday, February 28th rally and march, beginning at 4:30pm, to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the the U.S.-led coup in Haiti. The coup occurred when a contingent of U.S. Marines kidnapped President Jean-Bertrand Aristide from his residence, put him on a plane and expelled him from the country. Hundreds of thousands have been driven into internal exile, thousands have been killed in political violence and hundreds of political prisoners have been incarcerated during the ensuing occupation. The Haiti Action Committee wants people to march with them in solidarity with the Haitian people. The demonstration's demands are "End the Occupation, Free the Political Prisoners, Restore Constitutional Government to Haiti, and Bring Democratically-Elected President Aristide Back"

Violent eviction of 3,000 families in Brasil

Aotearoa, 22.02.2005 01:26

A large military police operation has evicted the land occupation Sonho Real (Real Dream) in the city of Goiânia, Brazil. Two people have been killed and many seriously wounded. Over 800 people have been arrested. Among the arrested are two Indymedia volunteers, one from Goiânia and one from Indymedia New York [Report].

Still coming in are many uncomfirmed reports of murders and extreme police violence, in addition to the reports about missing bodies. At this time, some of the arrested remain in jail and it is estimated at least 50 people missing, based on the various eye witness reports.

The Sonho Real occupation began in May last year, in an area which has been abandoned for years and quickly grew to 3,000 families living there. No other space was provided for them after their eviction. The eviction was ordered in January, and since then police have been conducting sudden attacks including concussion bombing and the firing of rubber bullets into the occupation.

Funerals and protests against the eviction have also been marked by police repression, violence and arrests.

Lebanon after Hariri: Beyond the Obvious

NYC, 22.02.2005 00:13

Despite a lack of consensus over who murdered ex-Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, the Western media is repeating a pattern of coverage first displayed during the protests after the Ukranian election. A brave populace takes to the street in order to throw off an oppressor and embrace democracy.

The reality in Lebanon is, of course, more complicated. As !-Mad writes on Beirut Indymedia: "Hariri's assasination is a national tragedy on many levels, but he is never and will never be a symbol of freedom and social justice. He is responsible for so many atrocious policies and actions that “we Lebanese” are paying for and will do for quite sometime. Hariri the powerful, the invincible, the man who holds so many power, ties and connections to world's high corporate world, state heads and monarchs. Today I´m struck by grief and shock to the way he got assassinated... “We” have lost an Exploiter to the hands of a bigger one! " [Read More and See Pictures of Today's Protest]

Protest Tuesday: Build Community, not Brownstones, in Urban Greenspaces

Portland, 21.02.2005 20:40

Urgent call out for short-notice protest at the office of the developers who want to replace the gardens at the TLC Farm with asphalt. Eveiction proceedings have been under way and are going to conclude, soon! Meeting time and place: NE Corner of Pioneer Square, SW 6th and Morrison, at 12:30 on Tuesday the 22nd

So we are calling for a rally. A protest. A visionary change to the way these developers do business. The single most important action we can take to preserve the land at this phase of the development, is show them that we don't want it. No one knows if the city will grant a development permit to destroy the land, no one knows if the tiny but expensive houses will sell. There is a lot of rational opposition. Join us in showing the developers just a taste of what they expect down the road.

Protest Flyer (in Word)

Read More...The Fight to Save the FarmGreenspace Not Brownstone is mobilizing and organizing a growing campaign to save the Farm from development. The "Brownstone" in the group's name refers to Brownstone Homes LLC which plans to turn the Farm's seven lush acres into a subdivision of twenty-three luxury condos. The Farm's full name is Tryon Life Community Farm (TLC), an educational non-profit located on seven acres bordering Tryon Creek State Park which is accessible to the public.

The focus of Greenspace Not Brownstone (GNB) is preventing the environmental destruction Brownstone Homes LLC may bring with development, including damage to the watershed and nearby Tryon Creek which bears steelhead and is one of the few wild spaces remaining within the city. The proposed development would also take from rather than add to the natural beauty of the area.

Many organizations including Friends of Tryon Creek, the Arnold Creek Neighborhood Association, the City Repair Project, the Coalition for a Livable Future and Dignity Village also oppose development.

Peace groups in over 40 California coastal communities staged a synchronized rally on February 19 along an 800 mile stretch of Highway 1, from the Oregon border, all the way to San Diego. Despite intermittent rains, and a moderate wind, fifteen Santa Cruz residents stood for two hours on the Branciforte overpass; facing the north and south bound lanes of Highway 1 traffic with their peace flags, and banners.

Local peace activists have decided to move their weekly vigil to the Branciforte overpass, and will meet there each Friday at 5 pm for similar demonstrations.

Tuesday Feb. 22: Support the J20 Arrestee with the most serious charges

Portland, 21.02.2005 20:10

At 9am [Tuesday February 22], Alex will be arraigned at Justice Center, courtroom 1. He won't be going into the Community Court Program, however, and will not be pleading guilty in exchange for community service. Instead, his case will be referred to the Multnomah Court House, to stand trial for misdemeanor charges of Harassing an Officer, and Trespassing.

This is in reference to his participation at the Chevron station lcok-down the night of January 20th. He was assaulted by a riot officer and raised his arm to protect himself from the blows, and for this he is receiving the stiffest charges of any protester. In some ways, he is lucky not to be charged with Felony Assault on an Officer, ala the infamous "the protester repeatedly hit my fist with his head" variety, but all the same it is outrageous for the victim of violence to be the one charged with perpetrating it.

Free Radio Olympia Changes Frequency to 98.5 FM on March 1

Portland, 21.02.2005 19:46

Free Radio Olympia is changing our frequency again. We are moving to 98.5 MHz on March 1, 2005. This is not the first time we have had to move, and it will probably not be the last. Current FCC licensing activity is poised to pack the cracks and crevices of Olympia's dial with translator signals, rebroadcasting other radio stations, often from out of town.

Free Radio Olympia is an unlicensed, direct action micropower radio station currently (until March 1) broadcasting at 100 watts on 101.9 FM in Olympia, Washington. We have been on the air since March 2001. FRO is committed to providing a service to the community by creating access to the airwaves and bringing unregulated, uncensored media to our listeners. In order for radio to be used effectively as a tool by the community, we feel that community participation is necessary. Free microradio offers the community a means for outreach to communicate, organize, and unify.

False Pride of the &quot;super outlaw state&quot;

Portland, 21.02.2005 19:42

America is a country built on genocide, slavery, exploitation and war. In America's short and bloody history there have been millions murdered by extremist politicians and profiteers, usually in the name of freedom and democracy.

Of all the war crimes committed by America, the mass murder of millions of Native American Indians stands out as one of the most poignant examples of genocide in human history.

Although few Americans realize that their country was the first to commit genocide, ethnic cleansing and use forced death marches, these historical facts didn't escape the Third Reich and Adolph Hitler. He admired the American government for their efficiency in removing the American Indians.

Anti-War Action: F15 Rememberance and Protest

United Kingdom, 21.02.2005 19:00

On the anniversary of the massive international February 15th Anti-War demonstrations in 2003 (largest anti-war demonstrations in living memory), people throughout the land paused to remember the dead and to protest against war. In London a 'die-in' protest outside Parliament briefly blocked traffic [pics | 2]. In Glasgow the Day of Civil Disobedience saw an army recruitment office closed for the day and people blocking roads (as well as a high level of police surveillance and initmidation). Other events took place in Brighton, Bristol [pic], Cambridge, Oxford, Menwith Hill, as well as Canterbury, Edinburgh, Greenwich, Lewisham, Plymouth, and Leeds. In Swindon a naming the dead event took place, while Nottingham saw an anti-war Critical Mass bicycle protest. In Stirling [2] in Scotland, a protest was also held outside an Army recruitment centre. Upcoming are the March 19th - International Anti-War + Anti-Neoliberalism Protests, which coincide with the 2nd anniversary of the 'Shock and Awe' attack on Iraq and the Brussels EU Summit, with protests expected across Europe [see call for PGA Blocs]. Here, the Stop The War Coalition, CND and the Muslin Association of Great Britain has called for a massive Troops Home" national demonstration in London, while the Scottish Coalition for Justice Not War and Justice for Gordon Gentle Campaign have called a Troops out of Iraq March and rally in Glasgow. In the US, protests are expected in over 50 cities. March 19th also marks the start of 'Counter Terror: Build Justice' - an International Month Of Peace Action.

The paranoid style in American politics

Portland, 21.02.2005 16:15

I'm not the first to observe that Americans draw from a deep well of irrationality in their political proclivities and ideas. Richard Hofstadter referred to this as "the paranoid style in American politics" in his book of the same name. The phenomenon affects the political left as much as the right.

It might seem paradoxical, but this "paranoid style" is actually the product of an apolitical culture. Everyone who knows American culture has heard the aphorism that the two subjects one doesn't discuss in casual company are "religion and politics." The product of this militantly apolitical -- indeed, politically phobic -- culture is a kind of inwardness and insularity. As a result, those Americans who are interested in politics lack any scientific or practical way of subjecting their political thoughts and ideas to rational inquiry or "peer review." If you were to develop bizarre, occult theories for explaining Junior Seau's touchdowns, or Sammie Sosa's homeruns, your fellow sports fans at the local bar would probably set you straight pretty quickly. But such a "sanity check" doesn't exist in politics, where you are not supposed to discuss these things except with those who already agree with you.

In February of 1998, The CMP began as a result of conversations with autonomous Zapatista communities who were requesting access to video and computer technology. The Zapatista's or Zapatista Army of National Liberation, are an indigenous movement made of up Tzotzil, Chol, Tojolabal, Mum and Tzeltal Mayan Indians. They became known to the world via the internet on January 1, 1994 when they staged an armed uprising and took over six towns in Chiapas demanding that indigenous rights be recognized in the Mexican constitution. Another demand was the formation of indigenous controlled TV and radio throughout Mexico. Since 1998 the CMP has been working as a bi-national partnership to providing video and computer equipment and training to indigenous and campesino communities in Chiapas and Guerrero, Mexico. The emphasis has been in the area of video production. The Chiapas Media Project is currently distributing 16 indigenous productions worldwide. For more info about CMP go to www.promedios.org.

These events are part of Chiapas Solidarity Week, which culminates with the send-off of the Friendshipment Caravan to Chiapas on Feb. 26, 6:00pm, at the IWW Hall, 616 E. Burnside.

Towards a Critical Analysis of Media EmergenC

San Diego, 21.02.2005 07:00

From October 6th-9th, as the National Association of Broadcasters was
holding their annual Radio Road Show in San Diego, a group of media
activists converged to try to illuminate what is wrong with the corporate
media and to strengthen independent, community autonomous media. This
convergence was called the Media emergenC, highlighting the two themes of
emergency and emergence. With 4 days of talks, film screenings, marches,
panels, forums and independent media making, the media activists, mostly
composed of members of San Diego Indymedia and radioActive sanDiego, but
including media makers from as far away as New York and Philadelphia,
tried to confront the NAB as had been done in many other cities, but also
to challenge the independent media movement and push it forward.

We've written this self-critical document in the hope of creating more
critical dialogue within the Indymedia community and the independent media
movement. It is our hope that people will read this, give us feedback and
make more documents like this critiquing their own events and actions and
circulate those for discussion as well. We hope that this can be read and
discussed at the upcoming Indyconference in Texas this month
( http://www.indyconference.org/).
