May 1st is MayDay

San Francisco Bay Area, 26.04.2005 06:00

MayDay 2005 will be celebrated in many ways in the San Francisco Bay Area. MayDay is the original labor day in the United States- it started as International Workers' Day in the late 1800's. It has also been observed in Celtic culture as "Beltane," a holiday in observation of the coming of spring. Walpurgisnacht, the night of April 30th, is a night on which people, including witches, conduct rituals to ward off the evil spirits of winter, and children play pranks on unsuspecting victims around midnight. Read more Many people still dance the MayPole every year on May 1st. San Francisco has also recently had a tradition of Reclaim MayDay events, which included labor, pagan, and artistic celebrations of MayDay.

A May Day March and Rally in Solidarity with Local Labor Struggles and Immigrant Workers will take place on Sunday May 1st. At 3pm there will be a march from Jefferson Square Park (Gough/Turk 10 minute walk from Civic Center BART) to a 5pm Rally at Dolores Park. There will also be a Town Hall meeting, with food, music, film screening, all starting at CellSpace at 7pm. At the 5:00 rally, there will be speakers from recent and ongoing local labor and immigrant workers struggles, including a report-back from the recent delegation, which went to Arizona protesting the racist, vigilante Minuteman Project. The Town Hall will be about organizing against the proposed cuts and fare hike of San Francisco’s public transportation system. Read more

A May Day Labor Forum, entitled "Workers and The Struggle Against Government Repression" will take place May 1st, 2005 at 7:30OM, at ILWU Local 10, 400 North Point St. San Francisco. During the 2002 contract struggle, the employers' lock-out of longshore workers was followed by Bush's invoking of the Taft-Hartley act. Organizers say that government and employer attacks have increased in tandem with the globalization of trade. "What challenges for workers lie ahead? How can the labor movement defend against joint attacks?." Speakers will address these questions. More about the event

There will be an art show on Jack Kerouac Alley, between City Lights Bookstore and Vesuvio Cafe at Columbus & Broadway from Noon to 6 p.m. Music will be by "Tanaora" - A Brazilian Jazz Quintet, and a wide variety of art forms will be displayed including painting, photo collage & photography, printmaking, mixed media, art books and jewelry.

Worldwide Protests Against the Impeachment of Andrés Manuel López Obrador

San Francisco Bay Area, 26.04.2005 01:20

Over one hundred people braved uncertain weather in San Francisco on Sunday, April 24th in solidarity with the worldwide demonstrations in support of Mexico City's embattled mayor, Andrés Manuel López Obrador. Now that he has been stripped of his immunity, Lopez Obrador has been facing arrest over a minor four-year-old infraction. Two weeks ago, the Mexican federal Congress voted to impeach him from his job as mayor. Once an arrest warrant is issued, he could lose his political rights and be barred from running for the presidency. He has been comfortably leading opinion polls for next year's elections to replace Mexican President Vicente Fox, who cannot run again. Protests over the impeachment of López Obrador took place in cities around the world including Sacramento, Barcelona, Tolouse, Boston, and Sydney. More than a million people protested in Mexico City alone.

Worldwide Protests Against the Impeachment of Andrés Manuel López Obrador

San Francisco Bay Area, 26.04.2005 01:00

Over one hundred people braved uncertain weather in San Francisco on Sunday, April 24th in solidarity with the worldwide demonstrations in support of Mexico City's embattled mayor, Andrés Manuel López Obrador. Now that he has been stripped of his immunity, Lopez Obrador has been facing arrest over a minor four-year-old infraction.

Once an arrest warrant is issued, he could lose his political rights and be barred from running for the presidency. He has been comfortably leading opinion polls for next year's elections to replace Mexican President Vicente Fox, who cannot run again.

The crowd included students from UC Davis, UC Berkeley and Stanford students, as well as local organizations such as Centro Azteca de Información, AFL/CIO local 790, families of Mexican origin and diverse US citizens. Signs carried by protesters included "Mexican democracy is an endangered species," "Mexico: Democracy in Danger," and "Fox, the world is watching." They rallied along the piers near Fisherman's Wharf. The crowd held an emotional visit to a statue of Mohatma Gandhi, which emphasized the peaceful nature of the protests that were carried out in Mexico City, San Francisco and cities such as Sacramento, Barcelona, Tolouse, Boston, and Sydney. More than a million people protested in Mexico City alone. The protest ended in Aquatic Park, where pictures were taken with the Golden Gate bridge as a backdrop, and the different groups proclaimed an alliance to increase pressure on the Mexican government throughout the state of California.

Felony Charges Dropped Against Old Growth Redwood Treesitter

San Francisco Bay Area, 26.04.2005 01:00

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 after an April 2003 tree-top altercation with Maxxam/Pacific Lumber climbers who had been hired to eject protestors in order to clear-cut old-growth redwood forest. Gifford was one of about 15 treesitters who were forcibly removed from 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. Read more: 1 I 2 I 3

Feds Target Bay Area Activists

San Francisco Bay Area, 26.04.2005 01:00

4/24/2005: Federal agents have recently been targeting Animal Rights activists in the Bay Area — arresting one, following and detaining others, raiding two homes, and posting a new bulletin for a "wanted" suspect. Peter Young was arrested on March 21st in San Jose. Federal officials have accused him of freeing some 8,000 mink from fur farms in Wisconsin, South Dakota and Iowa. He had been sought since 1998 after being indicted, along with Justin Samuel, on charges of violating the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act. Justin Samuel was caught by authorities in 1999. After agreeing to implicate Peter Young in a plea agreement, Samuel served two years in prison and now resides in San Diego. Animal rights activists have shunned Samuel as untrustworthy and a snitch. Young faces up to 82 years in prison. Since the arrest of Peter Young, there have been increasing levels of activity by the Feds in the counties of San Francisco, Alameda, Santa Clara, and Santa Cruz. The scope of the warrants issued suggests that their primary emphasis is on targeting people who are doing support work for Peter.

Meanwhile, the FBI is still looking for Daniel Andreas San Diego, their prime suspect in the 2003 bombings of two East Bay companies targeted by Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC). Last week, an updated bulletin seeking his arrest was posted and distributed widely across the mainstream media regarding new information the FBI has apparently gathered regarding distinctive tattoos.

Join the March for Truth, Justice, and Community

Portland, 25.04.2005 22:21

As progressive rural Oregonians, the Rural Organizing Project, has worked for years to advance justice, democracy, human rights, and human dignity for all people. We have a vision of our communities united in beloved communities across the lines of race, gender, sexual orientation, and class. Now we realize that a great obstacle has been placed on our road. 9/11, the "war on terror," and especially the invasion of Iraq present a profoundly different vision of the future. These are not distinct, isolated events or issues of "foreign policy." Instead they represent a counter-vision, one that uses war and fear to isolate communities.

The Walk for Truth, Justice and Community in June 2005 will be our chance to create a common response to the "war program", to unite in action, declare our resistance, and celebrate our vision for the world that we want. In the name of truth, justice, and community, we will share our stories and declare our witness and continued presence in the struggle to build a better world. We will join together across the divisions and fragmentation of our world to create a community where everyone is included and treated not as objects but as fully human. We will connect with each other and with our passion for a better world and a better way.

Forest Activist Relieved of Felony Charges

Portland, 25.04.2005 22:21

Humboldt Co.,CA :Three days of preliminary hearing, attended by a full courtroom, in a felony assault case against forest activist, Ramsey "Phoenix" Gifford, culminated on Friday with the court ruling that there was no evidence to justify the felony charge. Ramsey, a life-long resident of Humboldt, in spring of 2003, free-climbed an ancient Redwood in Freshwater to witness a fellow activist being forcibly removed by Pacific Lumber-hired tree-sitter extractors, 160 ft. up.

The extractors' own tapes of most of the interaction with Ramsey, viewed in the courtroom throughout the hearing, clearly show Ramsey's attempts to avoid the extractors as well as violent acts perpetrated AGAINST Ramsey, who sustains injuries from that time.

The Danger of the Christian Fascists and the Challenges This Poses

Arkansas, 25.04.2005 17:02

When we talk about the dangers posed by the Christian Fascists and the configuration in ruling structures of U.S. society now, some people say, "Are you people just trying to scare people into scurrying to your banner?" Well, no. This is very real. And one of the things that was very important in the discussion that followed the talk I gave on the dictatorship of the proletariat (" Dictatorship and Democracy, and the Socialist Transition to Communism"), was the question about whether there's "a perfect fit" between this Christian Fascist program and the interests and needs of the ruling class, at this time at least. (This discussion was published in the RW #1261, December 12, 2004.) And I believe this was dealt with in a dialectical as well as a materialist way there, in saying "No, there's not a perfect fit, but that doesn't mean this program won't come to predominate.

Feds Target Bay Area Activists

San Francisco Bay Area, 25.04.2005 04:30

Federal agents have been targetting Animal Rights activists in the Bay Area ̶ following them, detaining them, and most recently raiding two homes. At 6am, Sunday April 10th, members of the Joint Terrorism Task Force, FBI, ATF, Secret Service, Coast Guard, and local police raided activist homes with guns drawn. Since the arrest of Peter Young in Santa Clara County, there have been increasing levels of activity by the Feds in the counties of San Francisco, Alameda, Santa Clara, and Santa Cruz. The scope of the warrants issued suggests that their primary emphasis is on targetting people who are doing support work for Peter. All materials related to his support campaign found at the homes were seized, and people who have visited Peter in jail, or attended court dates have been followed. Peter Young was arrested on March 21st in San Jose. Federal officials have accused the 27-year-old of freeing some 8,000 mink from fur farms in Wisconsin, South Dakota and Iowa. He has been "WANTED" since 1998 after being indicted, along with Justin Samuel, on charges of violating the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act. He now faces up to 82 years in prison. Justin Samuel was caught by authorities in 1999. After agreeing to implicate Peter Young in a plea agreement, Samuel eventually served two years in prison and is now free and living in San Diego, California. Despite his repeated efforts to reintegrate himself into the animal rights movement, activists have shunned him as untrustworthy and a snitch.

Meanwhile, the FBI is still looking for Daniel Andreas San Diego, their prime suspect in the 2003 bombings of two East Bay companies targeted by Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC). Last week, an updated bulletin seeking his arrest was posted and distributed widely across the mainstream media regarding new information the FBI has apparently gathered regarding distinctive tattoos.
