Log Off

United Kingdom, 18.07.2004 22:00

Early last week activists occupied the Australian Consular Offices in Manchester in a protest against old growth logging in Australia. After seeing the destruction caused by logging in areas such as Victoria and Tasmania activists in the UK decided to target the Australian consulate.

Australia is home to some amazing areas of “old growth” rainforest, which have remained relatively unaltered by humans for thousands of years. Now, it is being felled at an alarming rate, even in supposedly “protected” areas.

In Tasmania, 90% of native forest felled is converted into woodchip for the Asian paper industry. Thus, priceless ancient forest is trashed and sold for $15 (less than £6) per tonne to make cardboard. There are huge campaigns against this logging in Australia, involving direct action blockades, tree-sits, marches and rallies, lobbying, and more.

The Fight of Our Lives

Arkansas, 18.07.2004 16:32

After weeks of wondering when the local development partnership of Nock and Alexander would begin to make their push for a large TIF District in southeast Fayetteville, area residents have recently learned the the opening volley is to take place this week. On Tuesday, July 20, the Fayetteville City Council will begin considering the developer's proposal; a proposition which carries with it a very real potential for abuse, and which could cause serious gentrification for many low-income families. Unfortunately, this first discussion of the plan will likely take place with very few members of the public present as it is the twentieth item on that night's agenda and will likely be discussed very late in the evening. On Tuesday, July 27, the City of Fayetteville will hold a public meeting on the proposed TIF plan; a plan which incidentally, will make use of taxpayer money from which the developers will ultimately profit; likely, at working people's expense. What we are seeing in Fayetteville is similar to events which are occuring all across the United States; events which are putting more and more wealth into the hands of the rich, at the expense of the poor. What follows is a speech that was delivered by Journalist Bill Moyers at the Inequality Matters Forum which was held at New York University on June 3 of this year. While Moyer's address doesn't concern itself specifically to Fayetteville's proposed TIF District, it does concern itself with decisions taking place in Washington D.C. and in cities and towns across the country, communities just like our own. Simply substitute Fayetteville for Washington D.C. and the dots should be very easy to connect. Here then, is Moyer's address:

Cyprus IMCista Investigated by United States Intelligence Services, 18.07.2004 03:16

Last week we learned that the US Central Intelligence Agency directed the US Embassy in Cyprus to instruct the Criminal Investigation Division of the police in Cyprus to investigate an IMCista who is politically active both in the US and in Cyprus. Petros Evdokas has been living in Portland, Oregon, USA recently and is one of the volunteers and journalists for Cyprus Indymedia

The intelligence investigation is based on an article he wrote for Cyprus Indymedia documenting some of the manipulations by US intelligence operations using the United Nations to influence the recent referendum in Cyprus on the "Annan Plan" (the UN's plan to reunite the island in an apartheid-style arrangement). The article has just been republished by IndyMedia due to renewed interest by newspapers and other political organizations. [ read the article ]

We're trying to publicise this and let people know what's going on. The investigators questioned the author's parents and wanted them to state in writing whether he constitutes a "threat to US interests". The implications of this episode go beyond mere harassment of an activist's and journalist's family. This case illustrates the US policy of interference in even the most minute internal affairs of other countries and it shows the degree to which the local authorities jump when the US says to.

The Corporation Reviewed

DC, 18.07.2004 03:15

Already announced and chattered about somewhat on this site and elsewhere in activist communities, the documentary film The Corporation opened last night at the E Street Cinema here in Washington. My first and last impression of the film was positive. I found it more informative and more useful than that other "progressive" "documentary" (excuse all the quotes, but it is pretty subjective, in many ways, even if you did like it) that came out, Fahrenheit 9-11. It felt like a nice recap of a good chunk of my bookshelf as it built over the past 6 years.

Why Local Activists are Turning their Attention to Lockheed Martin in Bonny Doon

Santa Cruz, CA, 17.07.2004 19:35

A newly-formed coalition in Santa Cruz is turning its attention to Lockheed Martin, which has a 4000 acre facility in Bonny Doon. Lockheed Martin (L-M) is the world's largest weapons contractor. It invents and develops high-tech war-fighting weapons, markets them to the Pentagon and to Congress, and sells them around the world on the open market. It pollutes the earth, both in the production of weapons and in their use in war. It has been convicted and fined for criminal violations of US law. And yet it has much more say about our government's policies than do ordinary citizens. Lockheed Martin buys access to our government representatives, largely with money it has made from selling weapons to our government, weapons that are both subsidized and paid for with our tax dollars. Profiteering from War.

Police brutality against peace movement in Japan is mounting, 17.07.2004 08:30

TOKYO, Japan ��� Three anti-war activists affiliated to World Peace Now (WPN) were brutally harrassed by Japanese police officers by detaining them for a week and later released, after the July 4th "VOTEforPEACE" parade rally that was held in Shibuya district.

According to reports, during the peaceful parade organised by WPN urging the japanese government to withdraw its SDF in Iraq, police officers started to violently provoke the protesters by pushing their back and forced them to walk faster. ���Then the police force suddenly got a full nelson on two participants and arrested them, without warning,��� Nanashi Solidarity Collective added.

After the incident, some of the WPN contingent immediately held an indignation rally infront the Shibuya Police Station to demand the release of their comrades. But the activists were only assaulted again by the police and grabbed one more innocent detainee. [ Read More ]

Animals Against Corporate Globalization in Grand Rapids

Michigan, 17.07.2004 02:05

As the citizens of Grand Rapids Michigan gathered downtown to enjoy a warm summer evening of live blues and street vendor hot dogs, they were unexpectedly confronted with barnyard animals declaiming the negative aspects of international "free trade" agreements. Wandering through the crowd of concertgoers were the "NAFTA Bunny" and the "CAFTA Chicken". This free trade agreement themed chicken and bunny duo passed out "pinkslips" highlighting the connection between job losses in West Michigan and NAFTA, CAFTA, and the FTAA. Almost 500 people were "pinkslipped" by the animal-activists and the animal’s presence was greeted with a combination of surprise, curiosity, and delight.

With the first auction of the Biscuit Sales (the largest logging project in the modern history of the Forest Service) set for Friday July 16th, it is Now or Never for Oregon's Wild Siskiyous! The sales are not subject to legal action due to "emergency status determination." The "emergency" is that the trees might rot and be worth less money if the process is slowed by public participation and legal action. Protests at the first five Biscuit Auctions on Friday are followed by a camp out at one of the auctioned sales. Events from slideshows to action camps are staking up to culminate August 27th - 30th with the Cascadia EF! Summer Rendevous, also in the Biscuit. On July 30th, A "Summer Celebration of Life" brings together musicians, artists, and activists in a benefit for the Tre Arrow Legal Defense Fund; Tre is wanted by US authorities for an alleged arson, and is seeking refugee status in Canada. From July 31st - August 2nd, the Cascadia Forest Defenders and Cascadia Rising EcoDefense will be hosting an Action Camp at the Straw Devil timber sale near Eugene, Oregon. Throughout the next month there will be a hike and camp-out at Medicine Lake, a site sacred to local indigenous groups and threatened by Calpine and Halliburton's development through Bush's energy policy. Mark your calendars now to sing and dance with us as we prepare to defend the Siskiyous and all of Cascadia.
