Mass Arrest of Tent University Santa Cruz

San Francisco Bay Area, 19.04.2005 18:30

4/19 Update: 18 people who were arrested at the Tent University spent the night in jail after riot police stormed the site with little warning from the school administrators. The Tent University will continue today, and Action in Defense of Education organizers are looking ahead to tomorrow's state-wide day of action to protest cuts to higher education, continuing fee hikes, and holding back Proposition 98 funds for K-14. ECR Interview With AIDE, including info about the protest in Berkeley on 4/20.

4/18: According to reports on Santa Cruz Indymedia, arrestees were dragged and clubbed by police and subjected to pain compliance and chokeholds. With a large crowd gathered and an increasing presence of cameras documenting the police brutality, university authorities eventually made a concessionary deal with organizers allowing a small number of participants to camp on the field, according to reports on Free Radio Santa Cruz. The arrestees were transported to the Santa Cruz county jail, where a large crowd was gathered in support as of 1:30 a.m. Inspired by the original Tent State University in New Jersey symbolizing the displacement of higher education, UCSC students organized Tent University Santa Cruz (TUSC) in response to the budgetary injustices facing California's education system. This event has been described as the largest political gathering in the recent history of UCSC and has been addressing the ongoing UC workers' struggle, the anti-war movement, the walk-out to defend public education on April 20, and the racial justice movement.



Small Turnout for Olympia Anti-War Rally

Portland, 19.04.2005 17:21

Eight of us (and two children) showed up with huge peace banners and flags. A light wind in the dampness made it rather cold in the morning until the sun showed up more after noon. Rep. Jim Moeller of the 49th District came out and talked to each of us. Two of the group did speeches recognizing the power legislators have to keep our nation on track. While we were on the front steps, we realized most people were going out the back entrance. Before heading home, we stopped in downtown Oly to fill our appetites for food. Even though we were a small group, it left me with a big feeling of fulfillment that we worked for peace. add your story...related: original callout

Suddenly, the Cops Ran Away and the People Rejoiced!

Santa Cruz, CA, 19.04.2005 16:02

On Monday, April 18th at 9:53 pm, University of California police descended on Tent University Santa Cruz (TUSC) and declared an unlawful assembly at the base of the UC Santa Cruz campus. Then at 10:17 pm the police began trying to arrest about 100 people that were locked down and chanting loudly. Police used pain compliance techniques on about 20 people and violently pried people apart from direct democracy circles, though some people did manage to escape from the pain compliance holds and again lock arms with other folks in the circles.

One nonviolent observer was pulled from the crowd by the cops and detained with along with the people who decided to hold hands in a circles under a tent after 8pm, the designated time to cease free speech at the base of the UCSC campus. There were numerous other instances of police brutality as well. One veteran reporter described the level of pain holds and brutality as the worst he'd seen since a 1973 prison riot.

A couple hours after the police began carrying people away one by one, a deal was struck between some of the TUSC organizers and members of the UCSC administration. The deal was that the UC administration would call off the police and allow TUSC to continue during the day on Tuesday if people began to disperse and no more than five people spent the night at the base of campus. The TUSC organizers accepted the deal causing a surreal scene where suddenly, the cops ran away and the people rejoiced. One commenter wrote, "this was inspirational beyond words."

Mass Arrest of Tent University Santa Cruz

San Francisco Bay Area, 19.04.2005 10:00

4/18: Possibly as many as 80 participants in the Tent University protest and teach-in at UCSC were arrested this evening by university police. Information on the arrests has not yet been released by UCSC police or the Santa Cruz Sheriff, but according to reports on Santa Cruz Indymedia, arrestees were dragged by police and subjected to pain compliance. With a large crowd gathered and an increasing presence of cameras documenting the police brutality, university authorities eventually made a concessionary deal with organizers allowing a small number of participants to camp on the field, according to reports on Free Radio Santa Cruz.

Sleepwalking into the Apocalypse: A conversation on Peak Oil

Portland, 19.04.2005 05:21

Recently, I've been discussing with friends the prospects for Life After Cheap Petroleum. It's surreal sometimes to see the way we all go about our lives as if there were no end to the Potemkin Village fossil fuel economy we've built ourselves. Sometimes, talking about the very real reality of resource depletion, you'd think you were talking about UFOs or something.

What follows is a series of private emails, as well as some closing thoughts of my own, prompted by this discussion, and some resources I've found that people may find timely.

Forest defenders block road to Fiddler Timber Sale in the Biscuit again!

Portland, 19.04.2005 03:21

(3:40 am 4/18/2005) Biscuit forest defense activists erected a multi-layered blockade at Fiddler Timber Sale in the Siskiyou National Forest (again) to continue the fight against the logging of the Biscuit Fire Area. This is the most extensive blockade established yet in the battle for the Biscuit. Around 3:30am today (April 18), the first log truck of the day encountered six defenders with their arms locked into colorfully-painted 1,200 pound concrete-filled barrels. Directly behind the barrels, a traverse line was tied across the road, anchoring a line supporting a bipod 120 feet further back. This set-up effectively block[ed] the road into the timber sale in three seperate places.

TUSC negotiators noted that university authorities have renewed their threat to send in the police at 8 PM (though sleeping is not illegal until 11 PM) to make arrests if TUSC goes forward with its planned encampment.

Bold New Acts of Civil Disobedience Confront Biscuit Logging

Rogue Valley, 18.04.2005 18:02

SELMA, OR - Forest defenders halted business as usual for Silver Creek Timber Company and Portland based Columbia helicopters this Monday morning as they attempted to haul old growth logs from the backcountry of the Siskiyou Mountains to the Roseburg Forest Products mill outside Roseburg, OR. Citizens continue acts of nonviolent civil disobedience to shut down logging operations within the Fiddler old growth reserve timber sale, part of the massive Biscuit Fire Recovery Project. These actions follow more than a year of campaigning that produced tens of thousands of public comments and a series of major lawsuits that are still pending against this extreme logging plan, the largest in US Forest Service history. When old growth reserve logging began for the first time on March 7, the people's movement to save the Siskiyou Wild Rivers Area turned to direct action to demand democracy and accountability from their public agencies.

Marla Ruzicka, Anti-War Activist and Recent NYC Transplant, Dies in Iraq

NYC, 18.04.2005 17:21

(from Indybay): On Saturday April 16, 28-year-old Marla Ruzicka, a New york City resident originally from Lakeport, California, was killed when a car bomb exploded on a street in Baghdad. Faiz Ali Salim, her Iraqi partner, was also killed. The attack apparently occurred on the Baghdad Airport road as she traveled to visit an Iraqi child injured by a bomb, which was part of her daily work of identifying and supporting innocent victims of this war. Marla was working for CIVIC (Campaign for Innocent Victims in Conflict), a humanitarian organization that she founded. CIVIC documents cases of innocent civilians who have been hurt by war. Marla and many volunteers went door-to-door to interview families who have lost loved ones or had their property destroyed by the fighting. She would then take this information back to Washington and lobby for reparations for these families. [Read more on Indybay]

EuroMayday in Hamburg

Germany, 18.04.2005 14:20

Die Arbeit hat sich gewandelt, darum auch der Tag der Arbeit! EuroMayday, das ist europaweite Mobilisierung und Vernetzung rund um prekarisierte Arbeits- und Lebensverh�ltnisse. EuroMayday, das ist Karneval f�r globale Rechte als eine Alternative zu Bratw�rstchen, Blaskapellen und Funktion�rsreden.

Ein Ableger der EuroMayday Parade wird in diesem Jahr in Hamburg stattfinden. Aus vielen deutschen St�dten kommen Anfragen und Zusagen am 1. Mai mit dabei zu sein. Doch nicht erst am 1. Mai, wenn die bunte Parade bei h�chstwahrscheinlich strahlendem Sonneschein durch die Stadt feiert wird EuroMayday in Hamburg sein. Denn EuroMayday ist eine Methode, die Fragen nach B�ndnissen rund um prek�re Arbeits- und Lebensverh�ltnisse zu untersuchen. So ist ein Veranstaltungsprogramm in Hamburg schon durch den April hindurch ein Beitrag, um sich zu informieren, Fragen aufzuwerfen und zu diskutieren.

Indymedia UK and the Institute For Autonomy are currently preparing for an international alternative media convergence in London on May 14 and 15.
The convergence is set to bring the alternative reporting machine up to speed for non-corporate media corverage of the G8 summit in Scotland.
In the spirit of a project declared by the Zaptistas in 1997, they are inviting everybody with an interest in participation:
“We will make a network of communication among all our struggles and resistances. An intercontinental network of alternative communications against neoliberalism…(and) for humanity.
This intercontinental network of alternative communication will search to weave the channels so that words may travel all the roads that resist…(it) will be the medium by which distinct resistances communicate with one another.
This intercontinental network of alternative communication is not an organizing structure, nor has a central head or decision maker, nor does it have a central command or hierarchies. We are the network, all of us who speak and listen.”

Day Five: Dublin Hostel Hunger Strike

Ireland, 18.04.2005 11:00

Nigerians 'Fast Tracked' - McDowell Policy of Deporting Fathers of Irish Citizen Children Day Five of Hostel Hunger Strike in Dublin McDowell's Policy of Deporting Fathers of Irish Citizen Children: Is It Constitutional? Irish Constitution Article 41.1 1° The State recognises the Family as the natural primary and fundamental unit group of Society, and as a moral institution possessing inalienable and imprescriptible rights, antecedent and superior to all positive law. 2° The State, therefore, guarantees to protect the Family in its constitution and authority, as the necessary basis of social order and as indispensable to the welfare of the Nation and the State. - Constitution of Ireland • US State Department February 28, 2005 Report on Nigeria • Human Rights Watch agrees with most of it. • Amnesty International's 2003 Report on Nigeria. • AI report 2004 report regarding Human Rights & Oil In Nigeria Written 17 April 2005 On 13 April about 70 asylum seekers in a hostel on Lower Gardiner Street, Dublin went on hunger strike to protest their 'Fast Track' treatment by the Garda National Immigration Bureau (GNIB). On 17 April two of the men collapsed and were sent to hospital. All are Nigerian. Most are men. There are also 14 women, 6 of whom are pregnant. Some are in late pregnancy. The pregnant women are not currently on hunger strike. Seeking Refuge from a 'Safe Country': The Irish Government sees Nigeria as a 'Safe Country' and today there is an enforcement of a 'Fast Track' policy for arrivals for deportation within months. With Nigeria deemed 'safe' the new policy means an individual's claims of torture, death or fear for their safety at home are officially ignored. This, in spite of the fact that the US State Department February 28, 2005 report says: 'The Nigerian government's 'human rights record remained poor, and the Government continued to commit serious abuse.' and that 'Security forces regularly beat protesters, criminal suspects, detainees, and convicted prisoners.' One hunger striker, Idowu, said: 'The people of Ireland and the Government of Ireland should disregard the propaganda of our home country, Nigeria. My country is definitely not a safe place. How could you call a country where the chief law maker, the Attorney General, was murdered - how could you call such a country a safe place?' One young single man asked a priest at St.Mary's Pro-Cathedral yesterday morning to reserve a grave for him. He says he knows his life is worthless if he is sent back. Fathers Seeking Wives and Children: Many of the men who are facing deportation are fathers of Irish citizen children and came here to be reunited with their wives and families. They thought Minister of Justice Michael McDowell's residency offer for non-EU parents of Irish Citizen children applied to them. Ironically, it does not. McDowell's 14 January 2005 notice only applies to parents of Irish citizen children currently residing in Ireland - thus, a policy of preventing Irish children from being reunited with their fathers is in place. The hunger strikers say that most of the fathers and all of the single people have other political or religious reasons for leaving - one, for example, is a trade union organiser for two states within Nigeria who left the country under threat. 'If they are 'Fast-Tracked' back', says Rosanna Flynn of the group Residents Against Racism, 'how can these serious issues be investigated by the Irish Government?' Hunger Strike Demands & Two Sent to Hospital: Currently at issue at the Lower Gardiner Street hostel is having to sign-on with GNIB officials twice daily. Residents at the hostel believe this is signalling an upcoming deportation. One hunger striker said that signing once a week or daily gave them just enough time to visit family in Cork or Galway and get back in time to Dublin. The hunger strikers have asked for answers but so far have received none. The Department of Justice told the Irish Times that signing was required just once a day. But GNIB officials demanded signatures twice a day. The Department of Justice also said that residents of the Lower Gardiner St Hostel should take the mater up with the GNIB. The hunger strikers have tried to do this since the first signing-on and have been met with a refusal of any discussion on the issue. This is has created confusion and distrust of the GNIB at the hostel. Peter, one leader within the group said, 'And since we are not getting a response from them [...] and they keep saying is that they do not have an answer - they are only working based on instructions. So we think we have been ignored. All that we want is somebody to come forward and explain to us and talk to us about everything that is going on. The GNIB has to understand that we need to be spoken to.' On Sunday morning two of the hunger strikers were sent to the Mater Hospital. One of the two, Paul, had collapsed during Mass at St. Mary's Pro-Cathedral, is still there and suffers from hypertension and is on medication. Another, Femi, was discharged and it is unknown if the two have the stamina and health to continue with the others. The Hunger Strike Will Continue: Rosanna Flynn of Residents Against Racism said, 'It is outrageous that McDowell has singled out Nigerians like this. He must listen to these people and treat all their cases individually and he must understand that they are serious in their protest. The fathers, especially, must be reunited with their families and be allowed to stay. The Irish government must re-classify Nigeria, it is not a 'safe country.'' The hunger strike continues. Peter from the group says, 'The hunger strike is going to continue - someone from the Irish government should talk to us, as the GNIB will give us no information.' Another spokesperson said, 'Regardless of our different reasons for coming to Ireland, we are united in our determination to stay on hunger strike until our requests are respected. We will see this through and stick together.' http://www.indymedia.ie/attachments/apr2005/dsc_4848hostelday4.jpg

Vancouver: Conscientious Objector and Draft workshop for teens a success

Portland, 18.04.2005 08:21

Today's Conscientious Objector and the Draft workshop was a reeling success! About 30 teens and numerous adults shared pizza and refreshments while they learned some pointers on filing as a coscientious objector. Kay Ellison of Vancouver for Peace led the 2-hour session. Cindy Fisher did initial "ice-breaker" games and John G. of the War Resisters' League in Portland explained some requirements.

The difference between being a pacifist and a conscientious objector was explained. A pacifist will not use violence, even to protect themself, while a C.O. is conscientious opposed to all war. Two identical forms were distributed, one for those from religious-based communities, and the other based purely on one's conscience. The form is to be submitted and mailed, along with a copy to oneself. It was recommended to mail it certified, signature receipt requested. One could also give an attorney their copy and/or put it in a safe box.

She had heard a talk by one of staff members about Global Exchange's work building people-to-people ties around the world—and she wanted to do something to help. She was a quick study and took to the work with a passion and energy that were inspiring to us older activists. She later chose a college (Friends World College) that allowed her to travel to many countries and learn from diverse cultures. She quickly develop "big love"—love of the human race, in all its joy, frailties and exotic permutations... One of the things we can do to honor Marla Ruzicka is to carry on her heartfelt work to build a world without hunger, war and needless suffering."
