WWF wilt soja productie groen wassen

Netherlands, 16.03.2005 13:00

Boerenbewegingen en andere maatschappelijke groeperingen uit Brazilie en Argentinie mobiliseren tegen het plan van het Wereldnatuurfonds (WNF) voor een Rondetafel van bedrijven over duurzame soja. Deze "Business Round Table" heeft veel wantrouwen en oppositie in Zuid Amerika losgemaakt.

In het plan worden agricultureelsystemen, die zich puur richten op exportproductie, niet ter discussie gesteld. Deze agriculturele systemen dienen enkel om de mondiale markt te voorzien van goedkope soja, en om aan het geld te komen waarmee het IMF-leningen terugbetaald kunnen worden, in plaats van mensen te voeden.
Volgens de boeren- en mileubewegingen zijn het WNF en zijn ondersteuners zich volledig onbewust van de soja-oorlog die zich afspeelt op het plateland van Zuid-Amerika.

Daar worden boeren en inheemse gemeenschappen aangevallen als zij zich verzetten tegen ontwikkelingen die hun levensonderhoud vernietigen. Toen boeren GM soja gewassen vernietigden omdat de pesticide die daar gebruikt werd hun eigen gewassen vernietigde, werden ze beschoten door politie die het GM veld bewaakte. In Argentinie, werden boeren die zich verzetten tegen ontruiming, aangevallen door private beveiligingsbedrijven en werden zij in gevangenschap genomen onder valse beschuldigingen.

Terwijl het WNF probeert de soja productie groen te wassen (greenwash) op een 'rondetafel' 16 tot 18 maart in Iguaza (Brazilie) met bedrijven als Unilever, de Rabobank en Grupo Maggi,de grootste soja producent, organiseren sociale bewegingen een tegentop (meer info, ondersteunings brief)

Zanon Under Attack

Aotearoa, 16.03.2005 09:01

The workers of the self-managed Zanon ceramics factory are once again under attack by the government and business interests trying to evict them in the southern province of Neuquen, Argentina. Since 2001, the employees have successfully managed the factory, setting an example for the working-class worldwide that workers can produce and manage even better without a boss or owner. Over the past four years, workers have battled against eviction threats and intimidation, but in the past few weeks the government and security forces representing the factory’s old ownership have used tactics of torture and kidnapping – reminiscent of Argentina’s military dictatorship (1976-1983) in which 30,000 people, mostly activists, were disappeared in the dirty war.

Gay Marriage Advocates in Santa Cruz Celebrate Judge Kramer's Ruling

Santa Cruz, CA, 16.03.2005 08:01

On March 15, 2005, The GLBT Alliance, a Santa Cruz queer political organization, held a rally at the Town Clock to celebrate a decision in San Francisco Superior Court that same-sex marriage could be legal in California. Superior Court Judge Richard Kramer ruled that sections 300 and 308.5 of family law codes violate equal protection, that the marriage statutes discriminate on the basis of gender and sexual orientation, and that they violate the fundamental right to marry.

I attended the Santa Cruz rally and spoke with Thomas Leavitt, co-chair of The GLBT Alliance. (4:56 / 2.3 MB)

Oldenburg: Schule besetzt

Germany, 15.03.2005 23:20

Sch�lerInnen verschiedener Oldenburger Schulen haben heute die IGS Helene-Lange-Schule besetzt, um gegen die gegenw�rtige Bildungspolitik der CDU/FDP-Landesregierung zu protestieren. Statt normalem (Frontal-)Unterricht gab es selbstorganisiertes Lernen in Form von Workshops und Arbeitsgruppen - rund 50 AGs in zwei Leisten bedienten verschiedenste Themen: Theater, Trommeln, Jonglieren, verschiendene Sportarten, Tanzen und Gesellschaftsspiele gab es ebenso wie politsiche Workshops zu Umweltschutz, Bildungspolitik und Sozialer Selektion, Antirassismus und Asylpolitik, Kommunismus und marxistischer Kapitalismuskritik, Drogenpolitik und Selbstorganisation von Sch�lerInnen. In zwei Filmr�umen wurden politische Spielfilme und Dokumentationen gezeigt, nahezu alle Workshops berichten von reger Beteiligung und konroverser Diskussion. Auch f�r die ziemlich �berraschten und teilweise ablehenenden Lehrer gab es eine leider nur schwach genutzte AG.

Farmworkers Take Down Taco Bell

San Diego, 15.03.2005 10:31

"The consumer boycott is the only open door in the dark corridor of nothingness down which farmworkers have had to walk for many years. It is a gate of hope through which they expect to find the sunlight of a better life for themselves and their families" (Cesar Chavez) On March 8, after nearly four years of struggle and amidst the momentum of the 2005 Taco Bell Truth Tour, farmworkers from the Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW scored a decisive victory in their national boycott of Taco Bell. Caving under the weight of an intense grassroots campaign, the fast-food giant has agreed to work with the Florida-based farmworker organization to improve the wages and working conditions of farmworkers in the Florida tomato industry by paying a penny-per-pound surcharge demanded by the workers. The farmworkers' sub-poverty wages have been stagnant and declining in real terms since 1978. "This is an important victory for farmworkers, one that establishes a new standard of social responsibility for the fast-food industry and makes an immediate material change in the lives of workers. This sends a clear challenge to other industry leaders," said Lucas Benitez, a member of the Coalition of Immokalee Workers. The CIW's precedent-setting victory is also an important step forward for student/youth, global justice, and poor peoples' movements throughout the U.S. who have worked in solidarity with the farmworkers, forcing the world's largest restaurant corporation (Yum! Brands, Taco Bell's parent company) to accept responsibility for conditions in its supply chain. As planned, farmworkers and their allies will gather in Louisville, KY on March 11th and 12th to celebrate the victory and chart the next steps in the movement to end sweatshops in the fields. The battle is won; the war continues. For links to multi-media documentation of the 2005 Taco Bell Truth Tour please visit Austin Indymedia Segment on Democracy Now

Erik Marcus Speaks on New Book at Red Vic in SF

San Francisco Bay Area, 15.03.2005 06:30

For "Great American Meatout", Bay Area Vegetarians (http://www.bayareaveg.org) is organizing 4 events. The first happened this past Sunday, March 6th, in the Haight at the Red Vic Peace Center B&B. We sponsored a presentation by Erik Marcus, the well-known author of Vegan: the New Ethics of Eating, publisher of http://www.vegan.com, a website dedicated to the vegan lifestyle, and a podcast show "Erik's Diner" that covers various aspects of veganism and animal agriculture. Erik Marcus spoke to a full house on his newest book, Meat Market: Animals, Ethics, and Money. In 90 minutes, he talked about the issues and problems with factory farming, and then discussed and critiqued the current vegetarian, animal welfare, and animal rights movements. He proposed a fourth movement called "dismantlement", a systematic approach to tackling the huge animal agriculture behemoth. Despite the beautiful weather outside, the audience was keenly interested in Marcus' analysis of modern animal agriculture. Much of the information that Marcus shared wasn't new, but it was his analysis and perspective of the material that made it interesting. He also emphasized the importance of outreach to youth and college students. When a young person transitions to a vegetarian or vegan diet, thousands of animals will be spared. After the presentation, Erik signed books and was available for discussion. Folks also enjoyed vegan, organic tamales available at the Peace Cafe (in the lobby of the Red Vic Peace Center B&B). If you missed Erik's presentation, you can also check out his frequent "Erik's Diner" audio podcasts (online radio broadcasts) and purchase his book online via his website - http://www.vegan.com/



White women kick Neo-Nazi organizer out of Mission Coffeeshop

San Francisco Bay Area, 15.03.2005 06:30

3/13/2005: Two white anarchists, randomly selected a table at Muddy Waters coffeeshop on 16th and Valencia. While they planned to take some time to read for an upcoming study group, they quickly realized what was happening at the table next to them. A neo-Nazi and young woman had come together and it seemed that she was loosely affilited with right-wing political activity already. He explained to her that while he grew up in the Bay Area, he's been traveling to help build up chapters around the country. Back out in front of Muddy's, a group of friends, all white, mostly queer and majority women & genderqueer, gathered in front determined to "do something". After a brief discussion about the very real possibilities that he might react with violence the group agreed that two of the women would confront the neo-Nazi and tell him that he was not welcome in the communty. The two women went to the back of the cafe and confronted the neo-Nazis, telling him that they wouldn't allow them to continue a conversation about building white supremacist organizing, and to "get the hell out". "I'm just having a conversation and this is America and we have free speech" he replied. The two women replied, "We will judge you and this does relate to us, as white people in this society racism impacts us and we will not tolerate you organizing in this cafe. You can't do this in our city and you have to leave." After ten minutes, with no physical confrontation, the two antifascist women walked the neo-nazi and his recruit out the door. Word was spread to more people coming into the cafe about what had happened and several shared thank-yous with the women who refused to just stand by.

SF Superior Court Says Same-Sex Marriage Could be Legal in California

San Francisco Bay Area, 15.03.2005 00:20

3/14/2005: Richard Kramer, who is a judge in the San Francisco County Superior Court, ruled today that it is unconstitutional for the state of California to limit the right to marriage to only a man and a woman. An appeal of this decision is likely. If this ruling is upheld, it would set California on a course to allowing marriage licenses to be granted to same-sex couples throughout the state. In February of 2004, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom ordered SF City Hall to issue licenses to same-sex couples. "It appears that no rational purpose exists for limiting marriage in this state to opposite-sex partners," Kramer wrote. Read more
