Echos of international women's day

United Kingdom, 10.03.2005 09:21

Actions and gatherings have happened all over the world on this year's 8th of March. In Istanbul, a group of around 150 people gathered in Istanbul on Sunday 6th of March 8. Police intervened after protesters refused to disperse and detained 59 people, including 29 women. Muslim Turkey has promised to do more to improve the plight of women as it legislates reforms required by the European Union before the government begins membership talks in October.

In Ecuador, it is remembered that most of the "drug trafickers" are poor and single mothers who, fed up of telling their children that there is no food today, risk their bodies and lives by swallowing drugs in order to transport them, on behalf of fat cats that never get caught.

In Santiago de Chile, more than 150 organisations seconded the march.

In Madrid no actions were reported - a Community Centre was evicted on the 8th of March.

There have been actions, amongst others, in Argentina 1 (in spanish)|2, in Euskalherria (also in spanish), http://pt.indymedia.org/ler.php?numero=55786&cidade=1 Portugal (in portuguese),

Maia Ramnath speaks about her recent travels to the West Bank with the ISM

Santa Cruz, CA, 10.03.2005 04:01

George Cadman of Free Radio Santa Cruz 101.1 fm interviews Maia Ramnath about her recent travels to the West Bank with the International Solidarity Movement (ISM). Maia is a UCSC grad student and activist in the global justice and antiwar movements. She has travelled to the West Bank twice, first in the spring of 2002 during the major Israeli army invasions of Palestinians towns and most recently in Dec 04 and Jan 05. (1:02:39 / 57.3 MB)

Audio: Listen to the Stream or Download the mp3

The ISM was founded in late 2000 by Palestinian and Israeli peace activists, who came together with the intent to end Israel's military occupation of the West Bank and Gaza, which they say is the main obstacle to peace. Civilians from all over the world travel to the Occupied Territories to provide protective accompaniment for Palestinian civilians, as well as to engage in acts of nonviolent direct action.

Protest at Santa Cruz Taco Bell Transformed Into a Celebration!

Santa Cruz, CA, 09.03.2005 22:01

The Comercio Justo Rally and Protest at the Mission St. Taco Bell in Santa Cruz has been transformed into a celebration. Taco Bell has agreed to some of the Coalition Of Immokalee Workers demands and the CIW has called off the boycott. Taco Bell has agreed to a raise of one cent per pound of tomatoes which will mean roughly $20 more per day for farmworkers. Taco Bell has also agreed to work towards improvements industrywide in fast food. Taco Bell is owned by Yum Brand Foods, which is the largest corporation in fast food, bigger than McDonalds.

The Santa Cruz Rally will still meet at 3:30 pm at the Mission St. Taco Bell, but will then cross the street and gather at the small park by the Community Garden. The scheduled speakers, including the mayor, will still speak and there will be a discussion and celebration.

Birmingham Social Centre Reclaimed for Community

United Kingdom, 09.03.2005 07:20

After 6 months of occupation, the squatted Nursery Social Centre in Birmingham is to be voluntarily vacated by the occupying Collective, after they convinced the council to hand over the building to a community project [see report].

After resisting three eviction attempts [pics] the Collective have agreed to move on to pastures new on the condition that the building be returned to social use by the council. The Collective felt, along with local people, that the building should not be left empty again. Birmingham City Council has finally arranged for the RITE Project (which works with young people excluded from the education system) to use the building until 2006. The building is then due to be demolished, pending a public enquiry, as part of the controversial Bristol Road expansion. The Collective are keen to point out that the social use of the building would not be on the council agenda if they had not taken Direct Action, highlighting the misuse of public buildings by local authorities.

Meanwhile the fight in London to return St. George's Theatre in Tuffnel Park to community use contines [see Latest Updates].

Greenwash Guerrillas Tackle Polluters Again

United Kingdom, 09.03.2005 01:30

picture.jpg On February 23rd, the 'Greenwash Guerrillas' were out and about again, this time visiting the second day of the 'Ethical Corporation Business/NGO Partnerships and Engagement London 2005 Conference', happily subtitled "How to make sure everyone gets what they want". They timed their entry into the Swiss Cottage Marriott Hotel to coincide with a co-presentation by BP and Flora & Fauna International, but were soon ejected by the energetic hotel security and police. The Greenwash Guerrillas say that leading corporate polluters, such as Rio Tinto, BP and Shell - to name just a few - are using events lsuch as this to try asnd hide their environmentally devastating activities behind a phony environmental and social facade.

Irish Embassy Occupied in Anti-War Action

United Kingdom, 09.03.2005 01:30

picture. British anti-war activists occupied the Irish Embassy in London on Wednesday 2nd March to protest the possible ten year jail sentence facing Ireland's Pitstop Ploughshares defendants when they go on trial in an Irish court on March 7th. See report and pics The criminal charges facing the Irish peace activists (Deirdre Clancy, Nuin Dunlop, Karen Fallon, Damien Moran & Ciaron O'Reilly) arise out of their disarming of a US Navy Plane at Shannon Airport on Feb 3rd 2003. The Irish Government continues to facilitate the US Military at Shannon Airport with thousands of US troops transiting through Shannon to and from Iraq each month. Just after the embassy opened for business, the protestors peacefully chained themselves together inside of the building in Grosvenor Place, whilst others have hung a banner reading, "PITSTOP PLOUGHSHARES: NOT GUILTY" outside.

Direct Action Blockades Against GM

United Kingdom, 09.03.2005 01:30

[from: liverpool imc]. At 3am on Saturday 26th February, a coalition of environmentalists used direct action to blockade Sainsbury's huge regional distribution centre at Emerson's Green, causing disruption to Sainsbury's retail supply across the South-West and beyond. Braving sub-zero temperatures and snow, campaigners blockaded the entrance to the depot, locking themselves together for three hours with steel tubes [see reports 1 | 2 | 3]. There were six arrests. Campaigners are demanding that Sainsburys honour their undertaking to stop marketing dairy products from animals reared on genetically modified soya and maize. Currently the use of animal feed is keeping GM in the food chain despite overwhelming opposition from consumers. Sainsburys have also been heavily criticised for driving down prices for dairy farmers who are demanding a fair price for GM free milk. A few days later, on Thursday 3rd March, around 25 camapigners also shut down the Sainsbury's depot in Haydock, Merseyside [report | pics]. People blockaded the depot by d-locking themselves to gates and blocking the main gate with a vehicle that others then locked themselves too. The blockade lasted for around two and a half hours before specialist police units cut people free. The actions followed multiple blockades and actions against Sainsbruy's last year - See [Feature from July 04] and previous blockade of Merseyside depot [1 | 2]. On Wednesday 23 February, hundreds of people also took part in a mass lobby outside parliament [report and pics] to demand the right to choose GM-free food, as well as strict laws to prevent GM contamination and make companies liable for any contamination that does occur. While nearly two thirds of people in the UK want tough laws to prevent GM contamination, the Government is apparently planning a legal framework that would allow widespread contamination. A roving bus load of cows also visited supermarkets around Cardiff, awarding the worst offenders with the "Greenpeace Cowpat Award for Supporting GM milk".

Desde Euskal Herria a la cumbre del G8 en Julio en Escocia

Euskal Herria, 08.03.2005 22:30

En 1990, el G7 se reunió en Londres. Ni una sola protesta. Ocho años despues, 400 organizaciones de todo el mundo se coordinaron bajo el paraguas de la Acción Global de los Pueblos (PGA-AGP) para juntar a más de 50.000 personas en Birmingham (Reino Unido) para hacer frente al G8. Desde entonces, las cumbres y las conferencias de la élite global han sido resistidas en cada país en el que han intentado reunirse. Esta resistencia ha conseguido, con éxito, deslegitimar estas instituciones y reforzado los movimientos sociales que los atacan.

Del 5 al 8 de julio próximos tendrá lugar en Gleneagles, Perthshire, Escocia la Cumbre del G8 para el 2005. Desde diversas organizaciones se está llamando a un Día de Acción Global para el día de apertura de la cumbre.

Esta próxima semana nos visitará una persona de la Red Dissent y se han organizado una serie de charlas, debates y talleres en diferentes lugares de Euskal Herria con la intención de reflexionar sobre que significa este movimiento antiglobalización y si se pueden continuar resistiendo y empujar por un cambio social que sea algo mas que un día de acciones espectaculares y una represión cada vez mas intensa.
