Protesting USMC Recruiters At UC Berkeley

San Francisco Bay Area, 24.02.2005 04:55

On Wednesday Feb. 23, About 30 anti war activists protested the inclusion of the United States Marine Corps at the UC Berkeley career fair. After a 15 minute picket and flyering outside the career fair, about 20 students went inside the career fair to take the message to the recruiters and everyone inside the career fair. For about 20 minutes students asked the recruiters about their policy barring gays from the military, and also about the morality of the war in Iraq. Last fall, the the Third U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals stated that if a college opposes the "Don't ask, don't tell" policy barring homosexuals from serving in the armed forces, that school has a First Amendment right to protest by blocking access to military recruiters. UC Berkeley's own anti-discrimination policy forbids employers who discriminate based on sexual orientation.

The Burngreave Masterplan

United Kingdom, 23.02.2005 22:00

Let the People Decide! (Says planning minister...)People Power! Suddenly, it seems, it's all the rage. 'Let the People Decide!' declares a press release from the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister (ODPM), which lauds the democratic credentials of the recent Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act.And here's the ODPM again: “Community involvement in planning should not be a reactive, tick-box, process - it should enable the local community to say what sort of place they want to live in at a stage when this can make a difference.” (1)Not only that, but the Home Office seems bent on turning us all into 'Active Citizens' who will “define the problems they face, and tackle them in partnership with public bodies.” This vision is, we're told, “at the heart of the Home Office's vision of life in our 21st century communities.” (2)At the heart of it, huh?Enter the Burngreave and Fir Vale 'Masterplan': a radical plan to renew Burngreave's housing.

End Police Abuse of Forest Defenders

Michigan, 23.02.2005 16:19

Thursday, March 3, 7pm
Magdalena’s Tea House
2006 E. Michigan Ave.
Lansing, Michigan

Please join Lansing based Earth First! activist Mike McCurdy for a presentation including the film “Fire in the Eyes”(30 min.) Mike will be discussing his involvement in an important civil rights lawsuit against the Humboldt Count Sheriff’s Dept. of Northern California. The lawsuit stems from a policy developed by police in 1997 of applying pepperspray with a q-tip and then by direct close range spray to the eyes of forest defenders participating in nonviolent civil disobedience. Mike is one of 8 plaintiff’s in this case which contends that the Sheriff’s Dept. is using pepperspray as a means to intimidate the Earth First! movement from continuing their decades long struggle to end the logging of old growth redwood forest. After 7 years, including appeals taken all the way to the supreme court, this case will be returning to federal court for a final trial this April.

San Francisco Bay Area, 23.02.2005 07:13

Books Not Bars is planning a series of big campaign events throughout the year as part of a campaign to close the California Youth Authority's youth prisons, and to transform juvenile justice. This month there has already been a Valentine's week meeting with legislators to share BNB's vision for a new juvenile justice system in California. Earlier in the month there was a "Leadership Academy" which was attended by parents from all over California. They held workshops on organizing and advocacy, developed campaign plans for the year, discussed the difficult issues that youth and families face, and committed to working together for lasting and meaningful change. On Thursday, February 24th, there will be a Books Not Bars Town Hall Meeting in Oakland. BNB says, "2005 has already been a head-spinning year for juvenile justice reform. (And it's only February!)... weeks ago, State Senator Gloria Romero introduced a bill that calls for closing CYA’s Chad facility and “redesigning or rebuilding” all the facilities within 3 years...the CYA lawsuit settlement brought plans for a whole new juvenile justice model for the state. The Books Not Bars "Alternatives for Youth" campaign invites everyone to join us for a big campaign update and celebration of our victories so far. Find out what is happening and how you can get involved." Books Not Bars is requesting that people RSVP to Jakada at: jakada@ellabakercenter.org or 510-428-3939 x226 Read more

State Plans to Shut Down Oakland Adult Education

San Francisco Bay Area, 23.02.2005 02:20

Oakland's state-appointed school administrator Randy Ward has proposed shutting down the entire Oakland Adult Education program as of June 30th. Under Dr. Ward's plan, hundreds of teachers, clerical workers, custodians, and other employees would lose their jobs. Some 30,000 adults who rely on Adult Education for essential classes in English and other languages, high school equivalency diplomas, computer literacy, job training, senior citizen programs, health education, and other areas would suddenly be left with no educational opportunities. Many Adult Ed teachers in Oakland received a notice on Feb. 18th stating that if class attendance falls below 14 students, that class will be considered for immediate closure. Ward's latest plans will be discussed during the School Board meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 23rd at 4 p.m., 1025 2nd Ave. near Laney College/Lake Merritt. Full story

Fighting for Autonomy: Tijuana &amp; Sonora

San Diego, 23.02.2005 01:58

Protest and Fundraisers
In support of Zapatista Villages in Sonora and Tijuana

In Mexico many have been the attempts to restore the belongings of land and freedom for the indigenous people. One of the accomplishments of the Mexican Revolution of 1910, was the Agrarian Reform Law, which was established in the Constitution of 1917. This law provided the right for the peasant and indigenous population to owe communal land called “ejidos” As of 1994, the government of Mexico has taken land away from the people to sell to large corporations for the construction of Maquiladoras, where cheap labor and no effective environmental laws only beneficiate the capitalist.
Many “ejidos” have chosen the route of resistance. They resist to be treated as items in a supermarket. They resist seeing their land turned into a jails of robots.

Unfortunatelly the resistance has left many people living in fear, others have been arrested, many have been threatened and abused. We have to unite our voice to theirs, our struggle to theirs because their liberation is our liberation.

United for Peace and Justice, the nation's largest peace coalition, endorsed a series of proposals this weekend at its annual convention in St Louis, including the Iraqi Pledge of Resistance, a nationwide strategy to end the occupation of Iraq and bring the troops home. The convention was attended by about 400 representatives of various peace groups around the nation, including Nashville's Peace Coalition, Summertown's PeaceRoots Alliance and Knoxville's Progressive Student Alliance. Southern efforts organizing against the war in Iraq were focused on mobilization for the March 19 demonstration against the war in Iraq and the March 20th Southern Human Rights Organizing Conference in Fayettville, North Carolina. Southern organizers expect between 10,000 and 30,000 demonstrators in Fayetville. Fayetteville is home to Fort Bragg - ground zero for the 82nd Airborne Division and many of the Army's elite units.

Activist Angela Davis Urges Examination of New Racisms at Vanderbilt Lecture

Tennessee, 22.02.2005 21:53

Racism is not static. The racism we encountered in the civil rights era is not the same racism we encounter today. Now most people recognize it is not acceptable to explicitly support white supremacy, that is not to say they do not support it implicitly. The point I want to make is that just because the law no longer provides for the overt expression of racism does not mean that racism is not a major factor in our contemporary lives.
