Urbana-Champaign, 04.05.2005 23:01

Reaction to the Event at the IDF last Friday Night, from the perspective of an elementary school teacher! Friday night I attended an event held at the Illinois Disciples Foundation at the corner of Springfield and Wright, Champaign titled "The Palestinian Truth Tour." The two speakers (U.S. citizens) had just returned from Israel and the Occupied territory and specifically the Jenin Refugee camp. The 2 are part of the International Solidarity Movement.



No Respect At NBC

Urbana-Champaign, 04.05.2005 23:01

Illinois Democratic Candidate for Governor, Rod Blagojevich supports Telemundo employees who are seeking union representation and respect by NBC for their decision to join a union. While anti-war demonstrations took place on Saturday, October 26th across the country and around the world in major cities, including Chicago, the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA) and the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) held a rally for respect in front of NBC Towers in Chicago, protesting the inequality at NBC against Telemundo Broadcasters who have recently become employees of NBC. Over 200 people rallied and chanted both in English and Spanish: "What do we want? Justice! When do we want it? Now!", In spanish: "Si, se puede!" ("We can do it!"), "El pueblo unido, Jamas sera vencido"("The people united, will never be defeated"), In English: "Respect!", "2,4,6,8 NBC Discriminates" and "2,4,6,8 NBC Negotiate!" A Telemundo truck drove by honking in support for the rally.



Champaign School Board Closes Hearings -- General Public Ordered To Leave The Building

Urbana-Champaign, 04.05.2005 23:01

Two days of hearings have been called by the Champaign School Board; the decision to remove Assistant Superintendent Deloris Henry appears to be a foregone conclusion. On Tuesday evening, the School Board ordered a recess of proceedings and refused to continue the hearings until the general public left the building. Community activists are asking the general public to exercise their right to witness and document the actions of this public body by showing up at this evening's meeting -- 6:30p.m. at the Mellon Administrative Building.

Urbana-Champaign, 04.05.2005 23:01

On the second day of hearings against Champaign School District Assistant Superintendent Deloris Henry, the general public was again ordered to leave the building. Twice as many people showed up for the Wednesday hearings as had come out on Tuesday evening. The press were not allowed to record events. In light drizzle, concerned community members talked about the lack of Democracy and transparency during the proceedings.



Corporations Pool 5 Million To Kill GMO Labelling Ballot Initiative

Urbana-Champaign, 04.05.2005 23:01

Oregon may soon become the first state to require labels on genetically engineered food. A ballot initative, known as Measure Twenty Seven, would require food producers to label genetically engineered ingredients in food produced or sold in Oregon. 70% of food sold in the state would be affected. The labelling measure has been fought by food and biotechnology companies such as Monsanto, Dupont, General Mills, and Pepsi, calling themselves the Coalition Against the Costly Labelling Law. The campaign has spent over five million dollars, outspending labeling advocates 25 to 1. (4 min. audio and full transcript)



Marisellis Brown For Illinois Governor?

Urbana-Champaign, 04.05.2005 23:01

Quick - name the candidate on the Illinois ballot for governor who is an African-American Vietnam War veteran with a Purple Heart, grew up in public housing and always signs "political prisoner" following his name. If you guessed "Marisellis Brown, of Danville" you know how to read between the lines of the official press, which has effectively buried any news of the independent's candidacy.



&quot;A Set-up For Failure: Racial Inequality In Education&quot; -- National Radio Show Highlights Racial Inequities In Champaign Public Schools

Urbana-Champaign, 04.05.2005 23:01

It's been almost a half century since the U.S. Supreme Court made the landmark Brown verses Board of Education decision, essentially ending legalized segregation in schools. Great progress was made in the Southeastern United States and other regions of the country during the 1960s and 1970s. But, a series of subsequent Supreme Court decisions in the 1990s and shifts in education policy at the federal, state, and local levels, have led to a trend that some observers are describing as "resegregation." On this edition of Making Contact, we take a look at racial inequality in public education.



Saw You In Springfield. And You. And You.

Urbana-Champaign, 04.05.2005 23:01

What went down when George Bush stumped for local candidates in Springfield. I was lucky enough to get together a few like-minded individuals who wanted to go show the Illinois GOP what we thought of their war plans, and so off we went, through the rain and sleet to Springfield. I don't know about you, but every time I visit Springfield, I look at the people passing by and I wonder which ones are the power-brokers, the ones I believe to be responsible for so much of what goes wrong in the state.

Provena Covenant Needs Another CEO

Urbana-Champaign, 04.05.2005 23:01

In a guest commentary of the News-Gazette that was published on Sept. 29, 2002, and entitled "Health Care Community Needs a Better Watchdog," Diane Friedman, the CEO of Provena Covenant Medical Center in Urbana, attacks Champaign County Health Care Consumers (CCHCC) as a biased group with a grudge against her organization and Provena Health. This article examines Ms. Friedman's allegations and finds that many of them are false.



Anti-&quot;Chief&quot; Organization Plans Actions Around Upcoming Meeting

Urbana-Champaign, 04.05.2005 23:01

The University of Illinois Board of Trustees has faced increasing criticism over the past few years for their lack of democracy and action on a wide variety of issues at UI. The Board was even investigated for criminal violations of the Illinois Open Meetings Act. Yet the Board continues to refuse to decide on possibly the most visible controversy on campus: "Chief Illiniwek," the University's mascot. The "Chief" issue will be prominent at the Board's upcoming meeting on November 13th and 14th. In response to the Board's inaction, one local organization is planning two events around the Board's upcoming meeting in Champaign-Urbana on November 13th and 14th, the trustees' only meeting at the main UI campus this semester. The Progressive/Resource Action Cooperative (PRC) will be holding a public forum on the "Chief" on November 12th and its members will have strong presence at the Board's public comment session on November 14th to demand the Board eliminates the "Chief." According to Lian Alan, PRC co-coordinator, "The '"Chief" issue has somehow disappeared from the Board's agenda. With these actions, the PRC and supporters of the anti-"Chief" movement hope to put the issue back in front of the Board."

Anti-Chief Protestors Disrupt U Of I Board Of Trustees Meeting

Urbana-Champaign, 04.05.2005 23:01

For more than a decade the U of I Board of Trustees (BOT)has refused to even propose- much less vote upon- a resolution to eliminate "Chief Illiniwek". During the public comment session of their meeting this morning, however, the BOT was forced to confront the issue when members of the Progressive Resource/Action Cooperative demanded the BOT sign a resolution to eliminate the "Chief" and then disrupted the meeting by chanting "No Excuse, No Delay, Ban the Chief Today!" after the BOT refused to take action.

GEO WINS BY LANDSLIDE!

Urbana-Champaign, 04.05.2005 23:01

The Graduate Employees Organization was certified as the collective bargaining agent for about 2700 graduate teaching assistants tongight. The vote was 1188 (77%) for GEO and 347 (23%) for "no representative". A few pictures from the GEO vote count tonight. Intensive get-out-the-vote activities yielded over 1000 grad employees willing to have their names printed on a list of union supporters which has been posted on bulletin boards across campus, encouraging people to turn out and vote for the GEO. The Illinois Federation of Teachers, the AFT, and graduate assistants from other GA unions (Michigan, Wisconsin, others?) are on campus to help with efforts to turn out voters.



As Tax Time Draws Near, Consider A Donation To The U-C IMC!

Urbana-Champaign, 04.05.2005 23:01

Tax time is upon us. And with our current government's love of bombs and dislike for social programs many of us don't like giving our current government any more money than we have to. One way to do this, if you itemize your taxes, is through a charitable donation to the Urbana-Champaign Independent Media Center. The U-C IMC qualifies as a charitable non-profit organization, so your donation is tax deductible as allowed by law.



Blaming The Victims

Urbana-Champaign, 04.05.2005 23:01

DI's editorial apologies notwithstanding, we feel that publishing racist ads funded by the One 'Truth' Foundation is no way to "educate, enliven and inform the U of I community."

Terrorist Threats Bring Lenient Treatment

Urbana-Champaign, 04.05.2005 23:01

White skin privilege results in slap-on-the-wrist The Dec. 28, 2002 edition of the News-Gazette brought news of the apparent conclusion of the case against Max Weissberg, 21, who was charged with the federal crime of transmitting an interstate communication of a threat on August 26. The threat by Weissberg was designed to discredit the Green Party campaign for Congress of Carl Estabrook by pretending it was from a non-existent group of Middle Eastern terrorists, implying that terrorists supported Estabrook for Congress. The charge against Weissberg, who admitted his responsibility for the crime, could have resulted in a prison term of five years and a maximum fine of $250,000. Instead, the charge will be completely dropped if Weissberg successfully completes a 18 month long diversion program. If Weissberg had been of Middle Eastern descent, it is very likely that this case would have had a far different outcome.



Argus Systems Case

Urbana-Champaign, 04.05.2005 23:01

45 000 USD contest rip-off by Savoy, Illinois software company We are a group of computer security researchers from Poland. In April 2001, Argus Systems Group (http://www.argus-systems.com), an Illinois based company announced the 5th Argus Hacking Challenge - the contest for hackers in which 50 000 USD prize money was offered to the first person (or group) that would successfully hack into the web server protected by the company's flagship product - the Pitbull Foundation System. Our group took part in the 5th Argus Hacking Challenge. Within less than 24 hours, we managed to break into the protected web server. Our successful performance was officially accepted and announced by the Challenge committee, consisting of Argus and sponsor representatives (Fujitsu-Siemens, Integralis). The whole event was widely discussed in various medias around the world, both traditional (CNN) as well as Internet-based ones (wired, register, vnunet, iw, zdnet).

WIXY And WLRW's Saga Communications Fires Local Workers

Urbana-Champaign, 04.05.2005 23:01

Corporate media's tactics and immediate dismissal of CU Cityview staff calls for comunity action! Champaign, IL -- Friday, January 3, 2003 -- The staff writers of the CU Cityview arrived at work today to find the locks changed on the Cityview office doors, and a posted memo stating that the newspaper was shut down. One day earlier, Saga Communications officers called staff editors and administrators into an unscheduled 4pm meeting, gave out press releases telling of the paper's demise, and then told everyone to go home. No prior notice about the paper's closure was given to the staff of the CU Cityview.



Memories Of The Octopus And How To Fill The Void

Urbana-Champaign, 04.05.2005 23:01

As a former Octopus employee and current contributor to the Public i I contempate the past and future of alternative newspapers in C-U. The many times that the Octopus was about to close I was always sad for the potential loss, but I also felt it was possible that the closing would make an opening for something better. I still believe that. Is the Public i that "something" better? Perhaps a coalition between the Public i, WEFT and the IMC Website. I don't know. A group of dedicated citizen journalist- editors have been producing the Public i, a true community newspaper, for two years. It has grown from 4,000 to 5,000 copies printed with each run. It has grown from 8 to 12 pages per issue. It has changed from a model that mimicked corporate owned newspaper structure with a steady editor and clearly defined sections to newspaper that is collectively shaped, edited, proofed, and distributed. We have rotating editors and guest editors. I am part of that collective. You would not believe how peaceful and productive our meetings are. We produce a compelling paper with little or no angst these days - though we've had our share in the past. I'm afraid of what the closing of the CU Cityview will mean to the Public i. It seems we are just getting on a roll. Is bigger better? Is more often better? Should we even attempt to fill the hole left by the closing? If so, what part of the hole should we fill? The arts and entertainment void? The community calendar void? There are many questions to consider. Thankfully, as we answer them we will have one consideration in mind -- what is best for the community. The community includes those who are doing the work and the readers. If you would like to have input -- you are welcome to attend the next meeting of the Public i. Thursday, Jan 9, 2003 (and each week thereafter) 5:30- 6:30pm IMC, 218 W. Main Street, Urbana (where Main and Springfield split)

Gov. Ryan Commutes Death Sentences

Urbana-Champaign, 04.05.2005 23:01

This afternoon Illinois Governor George Ryan commuted the death senteces of all current death row prisoners, changing them to life in prison. In a speech today Ryan said: "We had executed 12 people since capital punishment was reinstated here in Illinois in 1977. With the 13th exonerated inmate in January of 2000, we had released more innocent men from Death Row than those hopefully guilty people we had executed. Three years ago, I described it as a shameful scorecard. Truly shameful. So I did the only thing I could. I called for what is in effect a moratorium. A lot of people called that courageous. . . . It wasn't. It was just the right thing to do. . . ."

Labor Hour Rant: The REAL Class War

Urbana-Champaign, 04.05.2005 23:01

As you know, wealthy and wannabe wealthy people of Limbaugh's ilk claim that progressive income tax systems don't make people pay their fair share for a society that provides them with opportunities to make loads of money. No, instead, the ditto heads believe that their wealth comes from hard work, thus, people in the top tax bracket are the hardest working people in America. Using that logic, Bill Gates is the hardest working person in the world. Man, if Bill Gates works that much harder than I do, he does the equivalent of running about a thousand jackhammers twenty-five hours a day, eight days a week!

Reflections On DC Peace Protest: The Glamorous Life Of An Anti-War Protestor

Urbana-Champaign, 04.05.2005 23:01

Friday morning I awake before dawn. In the dark I struggle to find the light, turn off the alarm, and pack together some final necessities - extra long underwear, some snack bars, and my sleeping bag. Then the thirteen-hour drive to DC began. The roads were mostly clear, with only short patches of snow and ice at nighttime through the mountains of West Virginia. When we arrived at the Church Mildred, a grandmother who was also caring for her grandchildren that night, made sure we all had warm spots to sleep on carpeted floors or gymnastics mats and nourished us with complementary food and drink. It seemed important for her to let us know that members of mainline churches were vehemently opposed to the war and wanted to physically support those of us who would take to the streets to protest the next day.

CU Women Bare Witness For Peace.

Urbana-Champaign, 04.05.2005 23:01

Champaign-Urbana, IL - 26 January 2003 - A group of women from central Illinois felt compelled to use the shock of their naked bodies to send a message to the world that the women of America's heartland oppose a US-led war against Iraq. Rather than staying warm at home, they went out into below-freezing temperatures to be vulnerable for peace. Lying on a freshly snow-covered ground with sub-zero wind chills, they linked together to form the word "PEACE."



Attention Newspoets

Urbana-Champaign, 04.05.2005 23:01

Call to Newspoets to protest a February reception for poets in the White House by collecing poems against the impending invasion of Iraq. When I picked up my mail and saw the letter marked "The White House," I felt no joy. Rather I was overcome by a kind nausea as I read the card enclosed: Laura Bush requests the pleasure of your company at a reception and White House Symposium on "Poetry and the American Voice" on Wednesday, February 12, 2003 at one o'clock



Supporters Of Urbana Anti-War Resolution Pack City Hall

Urbana-Champaign, 04.05.2005 23:01

Over 100 activists for peace filled the Urbana City Council Chambers and 421 people went on record in support of a resolution to Oppose War Against Iraq, placed on the agenda by Council Member Danielle Chynoweth. For nearly two hours residents spoke about how the prospect of war with Iraq was locally relevant. Fewer federal and state dollars to Urbana was often cited as well as the direct impact on soldiers from this area and residents from other countries who live here, and the moral imperative for local governments to petition the federal government when they disagree with an action it is about to take that would affect us all.
