G7 Finance Leaders Get Noisy Welcome as Thousands Protest

United Kingdom, 12.03.2005 01:30

As the G7 Finance Ministers met for dinner at Lancaster House in London on Friday 4th February, activists greeted them with a noisy protest. A giant 'Drop the Debt' digital counter recorded the number of children around the world who die needlessly as a result of poverty (at a rate of one child every three seconds). See report and pics | report 2.

The day before on Feb 3rd, tens of thousands of people gathered in Trafalgar Square to demand the elimination of world poverty. Nelson Mandela delivered the keynote speech where he called for millions of people to carry the message of ending poverty to the G8 Summit in Scotland in July, saying: "Sometimes it falls upon a generation to be great. You can be that great generation. Let your greatness blossom. Of course the task will not be easy. But not to do this would be a crime against humanity, against which I ask all humanity now to rise up.". See report, pics, speech in full and comments.

Just days before, in Porto Alegre, Brazil, at the World Social Forum 2005, the Call from the Assembly of the Social Movements pledged to take to the streets in mass mobilisations against the G8 Summit, while the Caracol Intergalaktika, the WSF International Youth Camp, called for mass resistance against the G8 and other summits taking place this year, including the IMF / World bank, FTAA and WTO.

IMCistas Organize, Socialize in Austin

NYC, 11.03.2005 15:01

A few months after the Independent Media Center celebrated its fifth anniversary as a non-corporate resource for the open-publishing of news and information, about 150 IMCistas, mostly based in the US, gathered in Austin, Texas for IndyConference which took place February 18-20. The weekend included both formal and informal workshops, discussions, and skillshares with the goal of improving our effectiveness as a radical media network. There were also presentations from media activists Douglas Kelner, John Downing, Clemencia Rodr�guez, and Amy Goodman.

Our discussions included themes such as Professionalism and Indymedia, Shortcomings and Potentials of IMC, The Geography Hurdle, Setting up an IMC at a Mass Mobilization, Blogging and Indymedia, IMC and Underserved Communities, and Race and Gender in Indymedia. Other workshops and skillshares included IMC Print Caucus, IMC Video Discussion, How to Do a Radio Show, and Documenting Resistance. A generous amount of time was dedicated to discussing, an open-publishing website and a portal site syndicating news from local IMCs in the US. Before the Friday workshops began, we discussed how we would document the conference and coordinated our coverage efforts. We hope that you find the documentation useful and encourage your feedback about all aspects of the conference.

Invitation of Gujarati Chief Minister to NYC Sparks Protest

NYC, 11.03.2005 13:01

The scheduled appearance of the chief minister of the Indian state of Gujarat, Narendra Modi, at Madison Square Garden on March 20 has sparked calls for protests. Many South Asian and human rights groups have condemned Modi for his role in anti-Muslim riots in Gujarat three years ago that killed up to 2,000 people and left another 200,000 displaced. In New York, efforts to block and protest Modi's visit are being coordinated by the newly formed Coalition Against Genocide.

Medical Marijuana Trial begins in Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz, CA, 11.03.2005 04:01

On Tuesday, March 8th, legal proceedings started in the trial of Roger Mentsch, local medical marijuana provider and in-home caregiver. After waiting nearly two years to stand trial, Mentsch is facing several charges that could possibly result in over twenty years in prison. Local medical marijuana patients and human rights activists are rallying around Mentsch, claiming the charges are the result of a witchunt by the District Attorney, looking to make an example out of Mentch despite his status as a cerified medical marijuana provider.

On June 6th 2003 the home of Roger Mentch was raided by the Santa Cruz County Sheriffs drug task force. A warrant was issued because the money smelled funny, Monterey Bank stated. At 7:30am guns were drawn on Mr. Mentch as well as his girlfriend and 8 year old daughter.

Please help stop this abuse of power. Please come to my trial and support and protect our civil rights.

California Police Pursuits Cause for Concern

San Francisco Bay Area, 11.03.2005 01:20

On Sunday March 6th 2005, Kamal Lal, 43, of South San Francisco, was shot to death by a police officer after a chase between the Peninsula and San Francisco. More deaths related to car chases occur in California than in any other state. According to the California Highway Patrol, the number of car chases has grown by the hundreds each of the last three years for which statistics are available: 5,895 in 2001; 6,337 in 2002; 7,171 in 2003. The California Legislature is set to repeat past attempts to change the way that law enforcement officers pursue potential criminals. Law enforcement groups want to increase penalties for fleeing drivers, while a bipartisan group of legislators is pushing a proposal that would include penalties for police who recklessly pursue drivers.

Over 10,000 March In Port-au-Prince on International Women's Day

San Francisco Bay Area, 10.03.2005 22:20

March 9th, 2005: Over 10,000 Lavalas activists demonstrated on Tuesday, March 8 in the populist district of Bel-Air in Haiti¹s capital city, Port-au-Prince. Those assembled marched in solidarity with women whose children or spouses have been killed in recent repression perpetrated in populist sections of the capital. This demonstration was held to mark International Women's Day and, largely due to international outrage over past collusion between UN forces and the Haitian police, received a high level of protection from soldiers of the United Nation Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH). Dissidents also protested political persecution, and called for the return of constitutional government and the release of all political prisoners.

City Council Votes SoBro Into SOHO: Local activists try to fight corruption, gentrification and displacement

The City Council yesterday approved sweeping zoning changes for the Port Morris section of the South, South Bronx that many residents, local artists and business owners say will lead to violent gentrification and displacement. The major local concerns centered on lack of local input, no guarantees of affordable housing and not enough priority on waterfront access.
