US Fires On Car Carrying Italian Journalist

San Francisco Bay Area, 07.03.2005 02:20

On Friday March 4th 2005, American troops fired on a car rushing Italian journalist Giuliana Sgrena to freedom after a month in captivity, wounding her and killing the Italian intelligence officer who helped negotiate her release. On February 4th, Giuliana, who was working for the Italian newspaper Il Manifesto, was kidnapped in Baghdad and on February 15th, she appeared on a videotape begging for her life and for Italian troops to leave Iraq. While the US claimed that they fired on the car because it was speeding towards a checkpoint, Giuliana Sgrena has said that they were past the last checkpoint and the US shooting was most likely intentional and intended to discourage others from negotiating to free hostages.Some 190 foreigners have been kidnapped in Iraq in the past year but the number of Iraqis seized is far greater. Hotels in Jordan are thronged with middle-class Iraqis who have fled in fear of being kidnapped.

Protest march against DOW

Aotearoa, 07.03.2005 01:01

NEW PLYMOUTH: 80 people joined a protest march against DOW including local residents, Vietnam Veterans, Sawmill Workers Against Poisons, Greenpeace and Paritutu Dioxin Investigation Network. The march was led by Vietnam vets and residents holding a banner which read 'DOW Poisoning People Daily'. People came from all areas of the North Island to protest against DOWs refusal to set up a nationwide fund to compensate workers, individuals and families poisoned by 2,4,5-T and 24-D. The march finished at DOWs headquarters where speeches were heard from local Vietnam Veterans then a moving ceremony was held to commemorate the victims of dioxin poisoning. Local Paritutu resident and World War II Veteran, Ray Kennedy, was wheeled to the front gates. Followed by a convoy of other residents, he laid a wreath in memory to people throughout New Zealand whose lives have impacted and have lost loved ones. "The March highlights Dow's avoidance of liability and the unwillingness of the Government to seek recompense as promised from Dow. This leaves the emotional, physical and financial burden on the people of Aotearoa," said Andrew Gibbs, Paritutu Dioxin Investigation Network.

Aotearoa, 05.03.2005 16:01

Proving once again that a small group of people can make a huge difference, those who gathered under the banner "Defend Diversity" were successful in stalling the homophobic right-wing march for over an hour, and disrupting the fiery sermon of hate. Anti-Bigot Action confronts Destiny Cult and the National Front, in defense of civil rights: Proving once again that a small group of people can make a huge difference, those who gathered under the banner "Defend Diversity" were successful in stalling the homophobic right-wing march for over an hour, and disrupting the fiery sermon of hate. The counter demonstration and its sister rally "Don't Hate, Celebrate" being held at the University of Auckland were undoubtedly successful, smashing through the illusion of the Destiny Cult's image as a legitimate embodiment of Christian Values. Defend Diversity began with sidewalk chalk and banners that pointed out the contradictions of Christian fundamentalism (Religious Fascism). The authoritarian nature of Destiny Cults message struck a chord with the white supremacist, neo-Nazi group, the National Front, who were with them in solidarity.

Speak Out Against Racism and the New McCarthyism at Columbia

NYC, 04.03.2005 18:21

Several primarily Arab and Muslim professors of Middle Eastern studies at Columbia are the targets of a witch-hunt by well-funded rightwing groups, tabloid newspapers, and even some New York City council members. Already one professor has been fired from a city teaching program—simply for criticizing Israel’s occupation of Palestine. It’s time to speak up against the attack on Columbia’s professors. Free speech is not intimidation. Dissent is not intimidation. But threatening professors for exercising their rights is. Join us to stand up for our professors and speak out against racism and the new McCarthyism at Columbia.

In the city of Detroit we are drawing the link between the declining living conditions, rising unemployment and the collapse of the municipal infrastructure with the ongoing misdirected national priorities advanced by the Bush administration which is plunging the country into deeper social and economic crises.
