Desallotjament il·legal del CSOA l'Estella de Mataró

El divendres 18 de Febrer van desallotjar el CSOA l'Estella i la vivenda okupada de Kal Ronc. Denunciem la il·legalitat perquè els Mossos d'Esquadra, dirigits pel secretari judicial, van desallotjar amb un ordre judicial que només permetia la identificació de la gent que era dins. Curiosament, SR Constructors ja tenia la maquinària i obrers a fora esperant per entrar. En cap moment havíem rebut cap notificació al respecte. Mentres les màquines començaven a destruir-ho tot, els antiavalots no ens van permetre entrar a recuperar cap pertinença. I a hores d'ara, no sabem en quin estat estan, ni si les recuperarem. Estem iniciant un procés legal contra el desallotjament.
::Web de l'Estella:: Comunicat::

3 de Març: Denúncia els desallotjaments il·legals de Mataró.
5 de Març: Si ens desallotjen les cases, okuparem carrers i places.

Whitewater Was Abuzz for Ward Churchill

Madison, 02.03.2005 11:49

High marks to University of Wisconsin-Whitewater (UW-W) Chancellor Jack Miller for respecting academic traditions of free speech and not succumbing to bureaucratic follow the leader and canceling Native American social observer Ward Churchill's talk on campus. Churchill's own school, U of Colorado at Boulder, wants to give him the sack; Hamilton College lost their nerve over reported death threats, and in our own Wisconsin Assembly, Steve Nass, Whitewater's beloved representative, wants to drag the UW Board of Regents into the tussle. Google 'Ward Churchill' and you'll find about 986,00 hits. That should give background on the commotion.

Eddy Lepp Finally Gets a Day in Court

San Francisco Bay Area, 02.03.2005 08:27

February 28th: Eddy Lepp finally saw a judge in a Federal Court in San Francisco today. Lepp's federal defender, David Fermino, explained in court that Lepp is an ordained minister and represents a religious group and that his prosecution "runs afoul of First Amendment and other Constitutional protections." The Judge, who declined to release Eddy Lepp on bond, is forwarding the case on to another magistrate. Eddy repeated an earlier request that the jail allow his family to send him necessary denture adhesive, to which the judge replied, "I don't control the prison, Mr. Lepp." Daniel Barnes, who was also arrested on February 16th, was released on bond on February 25th. | Coverage of the February 16th arrests at Eddy's Medicinal Gardens | 2/28 Report by Ann Harrison

Supreme Court Says No More Executions of Juveniles in the US

San Francisco Bay Area, 02.03.2005 08:15

3/1/2005: Today the Supreme Court of the United States ruled in Roper v. Simmons, a case from the state of Missouri, that people who committed capital crimes when they were under the age of 18 may not be sentenced to death. By vote of 5-to-4, the court said that there is now a "consensus" in American society that juveniles, along with the mentally retarded, are "less culpable" for their crimes because they lack sound judgment. The justices said that the "Eighth and Fourteenth Amendments forbid imposition of the death penalty on offenders who were under the age of 18 when their crimes were committed." There are over 70 people on death row in the United States who were sentenced based on crimes they committed when they were under 18 years old.

Labor Solidarity: The Taco Bell Truth Tour Comes to Chicago

Chicago, 01.03.2005 09:23

Taco Bell Truth Tour For the past three years, farmworkers from Immokalee, FL and their allies have crossed the country, carrying the truth about the sweatshop conditions behind the tomatoes in Taco Bell's products to communities from Tallahassee to San Francisco. Each year, the CIW's Truth Tours have culminated in major actions -- including a 10-day hunger strike in 2003 and a three-day march in 2004 -- outside of Taco Bell's global headquarters in Irvine, California.

But this year, the 2005 Taco Bell Truth Tour is bringing the truth about farmworker poverty to the home of fast-food profits, Yum Brands Inc., the parent company of Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Long John Silvers, and A&W Restaurants, with revenues of over $24 billion in 2003. Yum Brands is the largest restaurant company in the world, larger than McDonald's, and as such wields tremendous influence in the corporate food industry.

As major buyers of Florida tomatoes, Taco Bell and Yum Brands have the opportunity, and the responsibility, to influence the way workers are treated in their suppliers' operations. Yet after more than three years of a strong and growing national boycott, Yum Brands still refuses to take concrete, measurable steps to address the brutal labor conditions in its tomato supply chain -- conditions that include sub-poverty annual wages, no right to overtime, no right to organize, a per bucket piece rate that hasn't changed significantly since 1978, no sick leave, no health insurance, and no benefits whatsoever.

Support for the boycott is expanding at a rapid pace across the country, particularly on college campuses, where the Student/Farmworker Alliance's "Boot the Bell" campaign has become one of the fastest growing movements for social justice today. Most recently, UCLA and the University of Notre Dame have moved to end their relationships with Taco Bell in response to student support for the boycott. They join 18 other schools in an unprecedented wave of student-led activism, demanding that Taco Bell clean up human rights abuses in its supply chain if it is to do business on their campuses.

The 2005 Taco Bell Truth Tour is coming to Chicago on March 4th and 5th and needs your support and participation. To find out more read this.

Eddy Lepp Finally Gets a Day in Court

San Francisco Bay Area, 01.03.2005 08:17

February 28th: Eddy Lepp finally saw a judge in a Federal Court in San Francisco today. Lepp's federal defender, David Fermino, explained in court that Lepp is an ordained minister and represents a religious group and that his prosecution "runs afoul of First Amendment and other Constitutional protections." The Judge, who declined to release Eddy Lepp on bond, is forwarding the case on to another magistrate. In court today, Eddy repeated an earlier request that the jail allow his family to send him necessary denture adhesive. He said he would raise lack of proper dental treatment and restricted access to legal material as arguments for release. "...can I get the stuff so I can at least eat, please," said Lepp, holding back tears. "That's not my call," replied James coolly. "I don't control the prison, Mr. Lepp." Daniel Barnes, who allegedly delivered a pound of cannabis to an undercover agent, was also arrested on February 16th, and was released on bond on February 25th. | Coverage of the February 16th arrests at Eddy's Medicinal Gardens | 2/28 Report by Ann Harrison



HHS Heat Campaign To Reschedule Medical Marijuana

San Francisco Bay Area, 01.03.2005 07:23

Marijuana is classified as Schedule 1, which means it has no recognized medical use. ASA is challenging the Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) to review its data and issue a statement that marijuana has medical value. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services ("HHS") has blocked legal action to make marijuana available to bona fide medical patients under their physicians’ supervision. ASA says that in so doing, HHS repeatedly misstates the scientific evidence and ignores numerous reports and studies demonstrating the medical utility of marijuana and its constituent compounds. HHS disseminates these misstatements in correspondence and government websites. The Department of Health and Human Services has requested two 60-day extensions to respond to the Data Quality Act petition.

NYC Activists Debate Anti-War Movement Direction, 2 Years On

NYC, 01.03.2005 02:14

Two years after it began, the War in Iraq grinds on with no end in sight. Following the re-election of George Bush, NYC IMC readers are debating the direction of United For Peace and Justice, the leading NYC anti-war umbrella group, and the future of the anti-war movement.

"Bring the troops home now!” was the urgent demand to the Bush administration from representatives of hundreds of peace and justice organizations who gathered here for the United for Peace and Justice National Assembly, Feb. 19-21." [Read More]

But stop the war writes: "UFPJ needs to be exposed; it is not a legitimate progressive or antiwar organization. It is an organization founded to dilute and divert the antiwar movement, and to make sure it stays within the boundaries of corporate politics." [Read More]

What Have Prisons Done to the Valley?

San Francisco Bay Area, 28.02.2005 17:11

2/28/05: The Californians United for a Responsible Budget, Shadow Commission Hearing in Fresno brought together about 100 people to shine a light on the prison industrial complex and its effect on the Central Valley. During the last two decades over half of California’s new prisons have been built in the Central Valley. Testimony at this hearing came from people who would like to reform the system and some that would like to tear it down. There was testimony from activists that want to move in the direction of restorative justice - a move away from the state using prison as an institution to solely punish offenders.
