San Francisco Bay Area, 26.02.2005 05:26

2/15/05: A display of a soldier's uniform on the gable of a house in a quiet neighborhood in the Land Park District of Sacramento has ignited a battle between anti-war activists and Bush administration supporters over the First Amendment. Stephen and Virginia Pearcy, both lawyers who work in Berkeley, decided to put up a uniform of a U.S. soldier hanging on a noose, with the sign "Your Tax Dollars at Work," at their house in Sacramento. A pro-war rally gathered in front of the Pearcy's house while they were away and two individuals, captured on TV cameras, took the display down. On Saturday February 12th, the Pearcys, with the support of members of Veterans for Peace, put a new uniform display on the house. However, this time the uniform was placed with a new sign saying "Bush Lied I Died". On Monday the 14th, a man identifying himself as"Mike" was captured by TV cameras taking down the display for a second time. A candlelight vigil was held on February 15th in front of the Pearcys' home supporting their right to to oppose the war in Iraq. Read More | Photos

Judges Tosses Out Latest NYC Indymedia Subpona

NYC, 26.02.2005 01:59

In an important victory for Indymedia and other radical journalists, a U.S. District Court Judge has quashed the latest in a string of subpoenas received by the NYC Independent Media Center.

The subpoena from the City Law Department arose from a civil suit in which New York City is a defendant. In it, the City demanded voluminous information, including all of the IMC's news reporting, emails, and web pages relating to the 2002 World Economic Forum. The City subpoenaed a number of different organizations, including the National Lawyers Guild, in an attempt to determine who organized an Animal and Earth Liberation March.

NYC IMC made three arguments in seeking to quash the subpoena: first, that the material sought was largely irrelevant to the case; second, that the City of New York could obtain the information it sought just as easily as NYC IMC; third, that a first amendment reporter's privilege protected the NYC IMC.

The US District Court judge agreed with NYC IMC that the material was of marginal relevance and also that the material was publicly available and thus obtainable by the City. While the judge did not directly address the question of reporters privilege, neither did he dismiss the argument outright. All but one of the other subpoenas were also quashed.

NYC Indymedia received pro bono counsel from the NYCLU and the law firm of Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton and Garrison.

Springfield communities respond to police commission decision in Greer police brutality case

Boston, 26.02.2005 00:04

Once again Springfield cops have been let off after brutally beating a Black man. But, as this outrage resonates in the community and more police terror is brought to light, a multi-faceted campaign led by oppressed communities and their allies are fighting back. The Springfield Police Commission voted 3-2 on Jan. 31 to let off four white cops accused of beating and choking Mr. Douglas Greer, a principal at a local charter school Nov. 4. According to Greer, principal of Robert M. Hughes Academy Charter School, he was viciously beaten by the cops Nov. 4. Greer, who has diabetes, drove his car into a South End gas station after feeling ill. A worker at the gas station called police after he failed to rouse Greer, who had lapsed into the early stages of a diabetic seizure.

Nashville-based Cumberland House Publishing to Release Right Wing Demagogue Jerome Corsi's book &quot;Atomic Iran&quot;

Tennessee, 25.02.2005 22:31

Local Activists Considering Picket or Boycott As if things hadn't gotten any worse, the right wing demagogues who are trying to get rid of Social Security by attacking the AARP are waging a second front on Iran, perhaps beginning the public relations process they deem necessary to usurp the public trust. Nashville based Cumberland House Publishing has recently announced that it will be releasing the new book by Jerome Corsi titled "Atomic Iran: How the Terrorist Regime Bought the Bomb and American Politicians." Corsi is the co-author of "Unfit for Command" which was part of a PR campaign by the Republican Party to bash Democratic Candidate John Kerry during the 2004 presidential campaign. The book was an attempt to bash Kerry, a decorated Vietnam Veteran, during the campaign which culminated in the debacle surrounding Sinclair Broadcasting's attempts to air the television program "Stolen Honor, Wounds That Never Heal."

Marsden B power plant blasted

Aotearoa, 25.02.2005 21:11

After occupying the proposed coal-fired Marsden B power station just south of Whangarei three Greenpeace activists decided to descend from what was their 50-metre high home for nine days. “Marsden B is a dirty, polluting power project, a climate killer and will leave a toxic legacy. If the Government is serious about Kyoto then it should stop this project now” said environmental activist Kate Lowe.

Lowe is one of the activists who, well equipped with climbing gear and food for several weeks, climbed the building on the day the Kyoto protocol came into effect. Their demand: that the Government stop Mighty River Power’s plan to convert Marsden B from oil to a coal-fired power station, because of the millions of tonnes of climate-changing carbon dioxide that it will produce in its lifetime.

FRSC: Interview with Ron Anicich of Bad Cop, No Donut!

Santa Cruz, CA, 24.02.2005 12:42

Skidmark Bob interviews Ron Anicich of Bad Cop, No Donut! before a media attack. Toronto Police Chief Julian Fantino says Bad Cop, No Donut! promotes hatred of the police [see: Get 'hate mongering' off air: Fantino]. Ron talks about the show and support from CKLN. It will be intresting to see how this develops.

A commenter writes: Another critic who needs our support and solidarity! Put him on the list with Ward Churchill and Lynne Stewart, with Free Radio and WAMM. Seems like critics are getting silenced quick and fast in the third Bush administration.

Bad Cop No Donut, for those who aren't aware, is an excellent weekly digest of nationwide accounts of Police Brutality, from lawsuit settlements and legal decisions, to off duty officer conduct and corruption, to taser use, deadly force, and stories yet to be told.
Anicich gathers all the PIC [Prison Industrial Complex] news he can find and puts together a weekly compilation.

The Council for the National Interest is categorically appalled by what happened to the Jews in Europe during World War II, which is called the Holocaust, and recognizes the utter horrors of state sponsored terrorism against a race, national or religious group whenever or wherever it occurs. In the memory of many of us, it happened to Jews, to black South Africans, Kurds, Tutsi, Muslim Bosnians, Chechens, and to Palestinians, which is called the Nakba or Catastrophe. In our grandparents’ time, it happened to Armenians, and before that, to native Americans and Africans during the Middle Passage.
