San Diego Opens New Fronts in War on Homeless

San Diego, 24.04.2005 20:21

The City of San Diego continues to expand its human rights assults against the homeless as 3 politicians join the war wagon. City Council members and the City Attorney are escalating San Diego's War on the Homeless.

Two new fronts were recently opened on the city's ongoing persecution of the homeless. San Diego police officers from the Eastern Division, with shock troops from the downtown precincts, joined city bureaucrats, probably armed with box cutters, who invaded the San Diego riverbed area, south of Mission Valley to hunt down poor human beings like wild animals.

Amber Birmingham, 27, follows &quot;Grandma Joan&quot; Norman, 72

Portland, 24.04.2005 19:21

This lovely young woman, Amber Birmingham, is my daughter. She currently resides in the Josephine county jail. She was one of many brave souls who have helped bring attention to the illegal logging of the Biscuit through direct action. Like "Grandma Joan" Norman, Amber has refused to give bail money to a government that is intent on undermining our environmental laws that protect our children's health and future. "I may have broken a minor law," Amber said, "but this is an attempt to bring attention to all the environmental laws the Bush Administration and Forest Service are violating and gutting which are truly egregious and harmful to us all. We have to do what we can so folks everywhere might know what these greedy people are doing to the rest of us, our children and grandchildren." As she quotes underground slave liberator Harriet Tubman, she reminds me that we have a moral responsibility to, "defy the laws when the laws are wrong". Amber said, "In this case my friends and I are trying to protect the laws that are right and defy a government that is wrong."

As the campaign continues legal costs are mounting; money and attorneys are needed.

Argentina: Workers Defend Zanon Occupied Factory

United Kingdom, 24.04.2005 05:00

Neuquen: The workers of Zanon and other social organizations mobilized in front of the central courthouse on April 21 to defend their factory against mounting attacks. At a moment when the courts and government must make a “political and legal decision” concerning the ceramics factory that has been producing under worker control since 2001 – legal attacks, death threats and physical attacks against the workers have increased.

A delegation of 30 workers traveled some 1,200 kilometers to manifest their determination to defend the factory at all costs. Inside the courthouse a small delegation of workers presented a petition with thousands of signatures from all over the world in support of the workers of Zanon who have set an example that workers can produce and manage even better without a boss or owner.

UCSC's weekly &quot;Weapons Inpsections&quot; Tour a success

Santa Cruz, CA, 24.04.2005 03:22

On Friday April 22, Students Against War kicked off a weekly "Weapons Inspections" tour to raise awareness about the presence of the military-industrial complex at UCSC. Every Friday, a "Weapons Inspections" tour will leave the Bay Tree Bookstore at 12:30 - everyone is welcome to join.

The Weapons Inspections tour seeks to educate students about the 35 military-funded research projects being conducted by UCSC staff on campus and the UC's ongoing management of the nuclear labs at Los Alamos, NM and Livermore, CA. About 30 students marched up to science hill and held a loud and horrible die-in in the plaza at Baskin Engineering, where most of this research is being done. The Weapons Inspections team then searched the science library for weapons of mass destruction in a silent, single-file procession and passed out information to students there.

Felony Charges Dropped Against Old Growth Redwood Treesitter

San Francisco Bay Area, 23.04.2005 23:30

Eureka, CA - Felony charges will not be pressed against treesitter Ramsey Noah Gifford, who has faced bogus charges of assault with a deadly weapon for nearly two years following an April 2003 tree-top altercation with Maxxam/Pacific Lumber climbers hired to eject protestors in order to clear-cut old-growth redwood forest.

Gifford was one of about 15 treesitters forcibly removed old-growth redwoods in the Freshwater Creek area in March and April 2003. Most of the trees were cut following the extractions, and nearly fifty people were arrested in protest of Maxxam/PL’s liquidation logging. Freshwater Creek has been listed as sediment impaired under the Clean Water Act since 1997.

PL treesit extractor Eric Schatz of Schatz Tree Service, who is the alleged victim of the assault, gave three days of testimony, mostly in answer to heavy questioning by defense attorney Michael Acosta. Attorneys for Gifford played footage of the incident taken with the extractor’s helmet cameras, and asked Schatz to stop the tape at the time Gifford allegedly tried to unhook Schatz from his safety gear. Schatz was unable to pinpoint an assault.

Workers picket mayor’s mansion

Michigan, 23.04.2005 21:01

DETROIT — Community members and city workers marched on the Manoogian Mansion April 16, demanding an end to water shutoffs and protesting nearly 800 planned layoffs. TrueVision, a British TV station doing a documentary on water rights across the world, covered the march.

“Mr. Terminator, where’s MY Navigator?” shouted one worker as the march converged on Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick’s official residence on the Detroit waterfront.

“There’s somebody on this picket line who hasn’t had water in their home for over a year,” said city council candidate Maureen Taylor of the Welfare Rights Organization. “There are 45,752 addresses that have had their water service interrupted, but they aren’t shutting off service to big businesses.”

Anniversary of a Medical Tragedy: Twenty-one years since HIV was announced as the probable cause of AIDS

Portland, 23.04.2005 19:21

Today marks the 21st anniversary of the press conference where it was announced that HIV was the probable cause of AIDS. Since that fateful day, almost all discussion relating to other causes of the two original illnesses defined as AIDS have been marginalized, if not nullified.

Over the years 27 more diseases would be attributed to the effects of infection with this retrovirus. The definition of AIDS itself has also changed since then. The public has accepted all of this unquestioningly. We've seem to have no difficulty believing the contradictory information concerning HIV and AIDS. We don't bat an eye when we're told what amazing feats this retrovirus is capable of. Worst of all, we simply don't question. Period.

It's way past time to start asking basic questions about HIV and AIDS.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Tennessee (ACLU-TN) filed a lawsuit Thursday challenging a proposed amendment to the Tennessee Constitution that would ban same-sex couples from being able to marry in the state. The lawsuit charges that the state failed to meet notification requirements as outlined in the State Constitution. The ACLU filed the lawsuit on behalf of ACLU members; the Tennessee Equality Project (TEP), a statewide lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender lobbying organization; State Representatives Larry Turner, Beverly Robison Marrero and Tommie Brown; as well as a number of private citizens.



New privacy tool tolls the birth of cypherspace

Boston, 23.04.2005 19:01

Information is power. Pervasive access to the internet in libraries, schools, homes, and cafés has put a great deal of power into the hands of the people. Governments are just beginning to react to this and are reacting much as they did to the invention of the printing press, with a heavy and intrusive hand. In recent cases the government has shown a pattern of intimidating those who would provide access to this new high-tech soap box. A new anonymity program, TOR, provides some help for both users and service providers.



&quot;Youth Councils&quot;: A Great Way to Squash Dissent

As some of you may know, I currently serve on the national committee of the Green Party of the United States. What many of you may not know is that I'm 17 and took my seat on the committee at age 16. On the national committee, I enjoy full equal voting rights with all the other representatives and am treated as an adult. Whatever you think about the state of the Green Party right now, I can say that they work to put youth in positions of equal power.

If I only I could say the same with local government bodies! I'm extremely frustrated right now with what's happened...

Filibuster battle as seen on NBC

Portland, 23.04.2005 18:21

On Thursday evening, I found encouraging news on the filibuster battle at Yahoo News. A private Republican poll, leaked to the Associated Press, had found -- among Republican voters! -- only 37 percent support for the GOP plan to deny Democrats the ability to filibuster judicial nominees, while 51 percent were opposed.

"Additionally, the survey indicated only about 20 percent of Americans believe the Republican statement that Bush is the first president in history whose court appointees have been subjected to a filibuster."

I thought to myself, the filibuster battle is over. It's nothing, I thought, but what "the Dude" in an article posted this evening calls the "SillyBuster" -- and the "nuclear option" threat is hollow and about to implode. What I did not count on was the perseverance of evil in the U.S.A. The Republicans do not ever see a negative poll as an indication that it's time to turn around -- it's just a challenge, requiring pouring some more money into the pot and stirring.



Another Anti-farmworker bill coming to floor for a vote in Oregon statehouse

Portland, 23.04.2005 18:21

PCUN is calling on all supporters to contact key members of the House Democratic Caucus to urge them to reject this bill. A floor vote in the full Oregon House is expected next week.

Introduced at the request of the Oregon Farm Bureau and Oregon Association of Nurseries, HB 3258 would place farmworker collective bargaining under the Employment Relations Board (ERB), a state agency handling public employee unionization. The ERB has no capacity, expertise or funding to take on such a critical responsibility. HB 3258 also does not take into consideration the seasonal nature of farm labor, and does not include key provisions articulated by PCUN and supported by Oregon Governor Kulongoski, including mandatory binding arbitration of first contracts.

PCUN President Ramon Ramirez stated, "I find it ironic that growers are introducing this bill and say they are in favor of collective bargaining when this law will never give workers a contract." According to a report submitted by the ERB to the Oregon AFL-CIO, it typically takes 79 days for an election to be certified, well after most seasonal crops have been harvested and workers have left the area.



The Murder of Equity &amp; Justice

Urbana-Champaign, 23.04.2005 17:01

This article is an Open letter of the Citizens of Champaign County & The Champaign County Board. This letter was written in response to the County Board's refusal this past week to objectively evaluate its long record of racial disparity in contracts awarded by the county, a long-standing practice that it was hoped by voters would come to an end after the Democrats achieved a majority on the board following the 2000 election. The County Board Republicans voted unanimously, joined by Democrats Babara Wysocki, Steve Beckett, and Brendan McGinty, against letting a contract to evaluate past discrmination and propose future remedies to avoid such disparate results in the future. The defection of three Democrats to help cover up past preferential contracting by previous Republican-majority county boards is viewed by many voters as an apparent betrayal. Carol Ammons' letter raises disturbing questions about the disconnect between rhetoric and reality among those who claim to support equal opportunity, while they actively work to undermine effective remedies to racial disparity.

'It happened in the Phoenix Park all in the month of May'

Ireland, 23.04.2005 10:00

The political history of the Phoenix Park I stared this piece intending it to be little more than an ad for this Maydays anarchist picnic in the Phoenix park (details follow) with perhaps a little bit of context thrown in. But suddenly I found myself carried away by the political geography of this park which was after all originally built as a Deer park for a discarded mistress of Charles II (hence the high wall). If you know even a little of that history the park becomes a different place and suddenly the events of Mayday 2004 fall into a greater context of political protest and the control of space. One year ago, on Mayday 2004, the summit of the EU heads of state took place in Farmleigh House in the Pheonix Park. The entire park was filled with surveillance cameras, ringed with fences, draped with barbed wire, buzzed by helicopters, rigged with motion detectors and surrounded with riot police. In the end water cannons were deployed to keep a protestors out of the park History is normally written by the winners and it is common to find each new generation of radicals having to rediscover the stories of those who went before them. Thus, it is not surprising that many of those who protested last year probably were unaware of the history of battles between radical movements and the state that the park played host to in the past. While the park hosts many of the symbols of power in Ireland - past and present - from the monument to the arch-reactionary Wellington, to the US-ambassador's residence and the Garda Headquarters, it has also seen its fair share of opposition. The invincibles assasinated the British Secretary there in 1882, it was the site of many early 20th century trade union ralies and the magazine fort in the park was captured at the start of the 1916 rising and was raided again by the IRA in 1939. The phoenix park is, in many ways, a symbolic battleground for the soul of Ireland. In recent years radical movements in Ireland have re-energised Mayday in Dublin. This year, even without the pomp and grandeur of the EU heads of state, a series of radical events are planned to span the weekend. A festival of radical opposition that is once again bubbling to the surface. And once again the Phoenix Park is on the menu. Mayday Radical Events: Anarchist 1st of May picnic in Phoenix Park | DCTU May Day Demonstration - Solidarity with Migrant Workers including a Get up stand up block to help organise the unorganised | Reclaim the Streets The Phoenix Park and Mayday - a Long History Did you spend Mayday last year trying to get into the Phoenix Park only to discover it filled with surveillance cameras, ringed with fences, draped with barbed wire, buzzed by helicopters, rigged with motion detectors and surrounded with riot police? Maybe you even got a blast from a water cannon. It wasn't just you; the working class communities that surround much of the park were also not only excluded from it but virtually locked down for 12 hours. Kids coming in and out of the estates were searched and families turned back by squads of riot cops yelling 'hold the line'. All so 25 rulers could eat without the distant sound of angry drums being carried over the park wall. Reclaim the park So this Mayday lets go back to the park and have ourselves a picnic free of all that hassle and madness. This will be at least the fourth anarchist picnic held in the park. But the tradition of using the Phoenix Park for radical gatherings goes back to the Land League. At one point the government had tried to ban them meeting in the Park and Michael Davitt threatened to lead a march to pull down the gates if they were shut in the Land Leagues face. In fact you can even go back further if your like, the largest mobilisation of the Irish Volunteers happened in 1882 in the park near the present day papal cross. The debates that took place during and around these mobilisations were to form part of the basis of the United Irishmen and the radical democratic risings of 1798 and 1803. In 1914 the Irish Trade Union Congress annual meeting was preceded by a huge rally of workers in the park - the bitter defeat of the lockout had just passed but this demonstrated that the unions were not yet beaten. The Irish Citizens Army attended protest meetings in the park in 1915 - with their guns. Even the idea of radicals using the Park to celebrate May Day is not new - at the start of the last century it was the frequent destination for Dublin workers out to mark May Day. In a 1915 James Connolly reported that soldiers had tried to stir up trouble with the trade union May Day marchers in the park. Mayday has been a day of celebration of anarchist resistance since the 1860's. Both because it is a traditional day for workers of the land and factory to skive off and because it celebrates the lives of our comrades who were martyred in Chicago in 1887 after the police riot of May 1886. That riot was in response to the growing movement for the reduction of the working day to 8 hours which had seen the workers of Chicago come out on strike. Since then it has sometimes been a day of protest, sometimes a day of parties and surprisingly often a day of picnics. The left and union movement today seems to have been drained of the sense of fun it once held but events like RTS ensure that this traditions is also upheld. And the picnic in the park can form a useful hinge between the union march and 'Stand up for your Rights' action the day before and the Reclaim the Streets on the day after. So this year we will be protesting on the 30th, picnicking on the 1st and partying on the 2nd. This Mayday come along and join us in the park. Bring a kite, a football or a frizbee. Bring something to eat and drink not just for yourself but that you can also share with others. Bring your kids or your parents or both. Meet with reaction We'll meet up at 1pm at one site of reaction in the park, the giant obelisk erected for the Duke of Wellington. This reminds us that the park has not only played a role in radical politics in Ireland but is also a home of reaction. Today it contains the Garda HQ, the Presidents palace, the US Ambassadors residence and the Papal Nuncios residence to name four. The Royal Irish Constabulary staged its final parade in Phoenix Park before disbanding. Wellington was not only a misanthrope and an anti-Catholic bigot but also part of the suppression of the radical workers movement in Britain. These movement's demands included the reduction of the working day to 10 hours. This is a curious link through history with the anarchists of Chicago who were executed for leading the struggle for the 8 hour day but the park contains many curious links some more of which I will mention here. Wellington was brought into the cabinet in 1815 to help suppress the wave of radical protests that had broken out at the end of the Napolonic wars. August 1819 saw the Peterloo massacre in Manchester when a mass demonstration of around 200,000 which included "bands and a series of embroidered banners carried by friendly societies and fledgling unions" was attacked by the cavalry leaving 11 dead and 500 injured. Some 10 years later when Wellington visited Manchester his carriage was stoned by Manchester workers because of his role in the Peterloo massacre. The Iron Duke - so called because he had bars put on all the windows of his house - was Irish, although he didn't like to advertise that fact. Peterloo set off a wave of protests across Britain, which culminated in the 1820 rising in Scotland. "Ordinary people from all over an increasingly industrial Scotland had been inspired to rise and overthrow the state in order to secure their rights and better working conditions." This included on April 3rd what is probably one of the first general strikes in history as "people from many different trades, but especially weaving, stopped work. They were not only refusing to work, but were in many cases preparing for war. Reports flooded in of groups of men engaged in military drills, and making weapons such as pikes from any material that could be obtained." Something to remember for all of us planning to go with Dissent to Scotland this summer to protest the G8 - it didn't start in Seattle - it won't end in Gleneagles. Meet with rebellion We'll leave the Wellington monument at 1.30 to head for the area behind the magazine fort. This is a nice quiet bit of the park with plenty of room for running around - if you know where it is you could head straight there but it would be nice to go across country as a group from the Wellington monument. You can also get there by bike or car if your mobility is limited. The magazine fort was built in 1735. Jonathan Swift wrote that: "Now's here's a proof of Irish sense Here Irish wit is seen When nothing's left that's worth defence, We build a Magazine." This bit of the park also has quite a radical history as attempts to storm the magazine fort formed part of the plan of many republican insurrections. It's isolated position in the park made it quite vulnerable and soon after the IRA had managed to get in and get a few lorry loads of guns out in 1939 it was abandoned. Liam Brady described that raid in his unpublished biography 'A Libertarian in the Thirties'. Don't get too excited by the title - he is referring to have lived in the Liberties rather than to having been an anarchist in the 1930's! But there is another odd link here because Liam Brady was the grand nephew of Joe Brady, one of the Invincibles who was hanged in 1882 for his part in the Phoenix Park assassinations It happened in the Phoenix Park all in the month of May, Lord Cavendish and Burke came out for to see the polo play. James Carey gave the signal and his handkerchief he waved, Then he gave full information against our Fenian blades. The Invincibles were a working class republican group close to the Fenians who stabbed to death the British secretary and also the under-secretary for Ireland somewhere along the road opposite the Aras. In Europe and the USA 1882 was part of the 'propaganda by deed' period which parts of the anarchist movement had entered after the suppression of the Paris commune when some 30,000 communards were executed. Propaganda by deed consisted of assassinations of members of the ruling class; in particular those associated with oppression. Press reports at the time often referred to the Invincibles as anarchists and Engels even called the Invincibles 'Bakunists'. But there is no evidence of any links with anarchism either in Ireland or abroad. In London however the short-lived German anarchist paper Freiheit (worker) was shut down as a consequence of an article "applauding the assassination of Lord Frederick Cavendish by Fenians in Phoenix Park, Dublin, in May 1882". The Invincibles had formed of ex Fenian/IRB men in 1881 in the aftermath of the brutal suppression of the Land League and with the objective of "removing all the principal tyrants from the country". Meet with our history This and other references to the Invincibles has left me with a lasting curiosity about them. I've spent some time opposite the Aras looking for the possible site of the assassination. We know that as late as 1938 it was remembered and even marked out by some working class Dubliners because of another of the odd links that crop up in connection with the Park. In 1938 James T. Farrell came to Dublin to visit Jim Larkin. He relates that while there Larkin "asked me if I wanted to see the monument to the Invincibles ... I imagined that I was going to see a statue, but this did seem passingly curious. The idea that there would be a monument commemorating the Invincibles in Dublin didn't make sense. We stopped in Phoenix Park, just opposite the Archbishop's palace. ... We got out. Jim walked along a path, looking down at the grass. I was bewildered. Jim became nervous, and he stared on the ground with some concern. Then he pointed. There it was. I saw a little hole where grass had been torn up. A cross had been scratched in the earth with a stick. I gathered that many Dubliners did not know of this act commemorating the Invincibles. Jim's boys always went out to Phoenix Park, and marked this cross in the earth. No matter how often grass was planted over it, it was torn up. The cross was marked in the earth." I only found this account today - but I do remember when looking for the site coming across a cross scratched in the grass on the left hand side of the road. This evening perhaps I'll talk a walk up there to see if someone is really still carrying on that tradition. I should probably also ask my mother. Probably part of my interest in the Park comes from spending a lot of summer days there as a kid visiting my grandparents. They lived in Kirwan street but as a child she had lived in Neill st which is very close to the North Circular entrance to the park and so she spent a lot of time there. History gets forgotten if we don't retell it. [ Well she didn't know about the cross but she did say that a distant relative was meant to have been a maid in the Viceregal lodge at the time and was said to have come across the scene just after the murder. That side of her family later ended up in Liverpool - and there was more to tell there. ] Whatever the exact site the assassinations took place less that a kilometre as the crow flies from the magazine fort. Blowing up the entire fort was also supposed to be the signal for the start of the 1916 rising. If the main magazine had gone up the resulting explosion should have been heard all over Dublin. But although the fort was captured around noon on Easter Monday 1916 by volunteers Patrick Daly and Garry Holohan they were. "Unable to locate the key to the main store, the men were able only to set off a small charge with a cache of gelignite which did not make a sound to be heard all over Dublin as the rebels had planned." You can see why the state decided it was probably better to abandon the fort, today the dry moat is full of brambles and the gates are long padlocked shut. It's a quiet spot where you can easily believe you are deep in the country side rather than a short walk from Park Gate Street. Meet with each other So this Mayday lets return to the Park and celebrate resistance and struggle from Chicago to Dublin. And lets be at the trade union march the day before and the Reclaim the Streets the day after. May weekend events in Dublin * May Day Demonstration - Solidarity with Migrant Workers This years May Day trade union demonstration will take place on Saturday April 30th meeting at 2.30 at the Garden of Remembrance in Parnell Square.

Police raid multiple homes in Wellington

Aotearoa, 23.04.2005 09:02

On the 11th of December 2004 there was a protest at the Australian Embassy in Wellington, the protest was in the name of solidarity, for the Aboriginal People of Australia who were/are suffering at the hands of the inherently racist system. On Thursday the 21st or April this year the Wellington Police raided four houses simultaneously, they were searching for paint, receipts, computer/camera equipment relating to the alleged incident. About 9am they entered the houses and rummaged to see what they could find. They found very little of what they went looking for, they took computer and paint from one address.

Potter Moves To Withdraw From Joint Terrorism Task Force

Portland, 23.04.2005 03:32

At a joint press conference with Special Agent-in-Charge Robert Jordan this morning, Mayor Tom Potter announced that he will ask City Council to reassign the two Portland police officers currently working with the Joint Terrorism Task Force back to the Criminal Intelligence Unit of the Portland Police Bureau.

That decision comes after three weeks of negotations between the City and the Federal government, which were prompted at the end of March by the introduction by Potter and Commissioner Randy Leonard of a resolution which sought to establish specific criteria for Portland's continued participation in the JTTF.

In a letter dated April 18 and included in the material released this morning, Jordan praised Potter for having "clearly and eloquently articulated his responsibiility to oversee Portland's police officers.

"Unfortunately," Jordan wrote, "we are unable to find a solution that is mutally acceptable."

The Emerson Student Strike

Boston, 23.04.2005 01:01

Last Wednesday and Thursday, Emerson students went on strike in support of our faculty union, struggling to keep their union contracts and shared governance. The professors have had a union for thirty years, but now as the administration takes steps to move the college towards becoming more of a corporation and less of a place of education, the administration is trying to bust the union. On Wednesday and Thursday, a large portion of the Emerson student body boycotted class. We had a march and rally of about 300 on Wednssday, and slightly more on Thursday. From what I've been able to figure most of the student population went on strike, but there's really no way of knowing exactly how many did, as a lot of teachers didn't mark boycotting students absent.

The Great Wall Of Williamsburg

NYC, 22.04.2005 23:01

(from the Latest Indypendent): A north Brooklyn business owner recently strung up a few orange balloons on the shore of the East River that stretched 400 feet into the New York sky. The dirigibles served as a wry commentary on the size of buildings that would be allowed under the Bloomberg administration’s plans to rezone 175 blocks of Williamsburg and Greenpoint. Irony struck when city officials asked that the balloons be lowered, for fear that they could pose a danger to aviators.
