Big Demonstration Held as the Governor Arrives in Fresno

San Francisco Bay Area, 13.05.2005 15:00

5/13/2005: Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger was greeted by hundreds of union members and community activists, who were on hand as he arrived at a fundraising event. The fund raiser and demonstration was held at the Bonadelle Mansion in an upscale part of town, far from the homeless and poor. The Bonadelle family is famous in Fresno for their role as housing developers in the area. They were also involved in Operation Rezone, which was an FBI sting operation. Several developers and City Council members were put on trial and jailed for their roles in buying and selling votes to enrich the developers.

The demonstrators, who took up most of the block in front of the Bonadelle mansion, at one point took over the street. Attending today’s demonstration were union members from Service Employees International Union, the Fresno Teacher’s Association, California Nurses Association, etc., and was one of the largest demonstrations in Fresno in quite awhile.

As Reports Of US Attrocities Spread, Fighting Flares in Afghanistan

San Francisco Bay Area, 13.05.2005 15:00

5/13/2005: On May 10th 2005, anti-American riots broke out across Afghanistan in response to reports of US use of religion in the humiliation of Afghan prisoners. More than 5000 people took to the streets of Jalalabad. Four Afghan protesters were killed when police opened fire on the crowd and the crowd responded by burning down a governor's office and attacking several UN buildings. There were also protests in the south-eastern city of Khost, and in Laghman province. On May 12th protest had spread to Kabul; more than 200 young men marched from a dormitory block near Kabul University chanting "Death to America!" and carrying banners. Three protesters will killed as police fired on hundreds of demonstrators in the town of Khogyani to prevent them from departing toward Jalalabad. By May 13th, riots appeared across the country with at least nine more people killed in clashes.

The immediate cause of the riots was an article in Newsweek that said investigators probing abuses at Guantanamo Bay naval base in Cuba had discovered that interrogators "had placed Korans on toilets, and in at least one case flushed a holy book down the toilet". Over the past few months reports have revealed a pattern of sexual humiliation and torture of Afghan prisoners. Anger at the US and government of Hamid Karzai has been on the rise for several months. Anti-American sentiments have been compounded by conflicts over Afghanistan's huge opium trade and the recently announced push for permanent US bases in the country.

Victory for Mt. Hood: Polallie-Cooper Timber Sales Cancelled!!!

Portland, 13.05.2005 06:21

May 12, 2005, Sandy, Oregon - The U.S. Forest Service has announced the cancellation of the 865 acre Polallie-Cooper timber sales near Cooper Spur on Mt. Hood. The announcement is a key victory for conservation groups working to protect the watersheds, wildlife and backcountry recreation that Cooper Spur offers.

A unique and diverse coalition of conservation and recreation groups challenged the Polallie-Cooper timber sales in federal court in Portland, Oregon. "These sales just didn't make any sense. We don't need to clear cut Mt. Hood to improve the forest," said Sandi Scheinberg, Executive Director for Bark. Bark, a forest watch group based in Portland, Oregon, is the lead plaintiff in the litigation. "Logging in the Crystal Spring watershed threatens the public water supply, and cutting large old-growth trees only increases fire risk. This project lacked common sense and scientific support." Other plaintiffs included Oregon Natural Resources Council, the Mazamas, Friends of Mt. Hood, Oregon Wildlife Federation, Friends of Tilly Jane, Hood River Valley Residents Committee and the Sierra Club.



TUSC Rally Friday: No Response Given thus Far on Student Demands

Santa Cruz, CA, 13.05.2005 04:21

Many are trying to resume their normal schedules in the couple of weeks that have passed since the violent arrests of 19 students and community members at UC Santa Cruz. Last week, a group of involved students, members of the community, faculty, and administration sat down to talk about what happened on the night of April 18th. Chancellor Denise Denton apologized to those involved for the excessive "pain compliance" tactics used on peaceful demonstrators. The platform as a list of demands was also given to the administration.

The Tent U community believes that the police repression that night constitutes a violation of free speech and a glaring contradiction to the supposed educational mission of the UC system.

The rally on Friday the 13th was given to the Chancellor as an opportunity to respond to the demands on the Tent U platform, which include banning the use of pain compliance measures on peaceful student protesters, a democratic forum for student's concerns with the administration, reinstatement of the journalism department as well as the allocation of hard funds for humanities, and free speech 24 hours a day, seven days a week. A full list of demands is posted at ucsc.tentstate.com. The rally will also honor Pat True, UCSC worker and member of the local clerical union (CUE) who went on a hunger strike to demand information be released on who ordered the excessive force on the 18th.

The rally will be held at the Baytree plaza at 1pm, during normal free speech hours. Chancellor Denton was invited but has not yet RSVP'd.

Dog Meat Protest at Korean Trade Expo

San Francisco Bay Area, 12.05.2005 19:20

Various activists gathered at San Francisco’s Korean Trade Expo to urge attendees to join the campaign by In Defense of Animals and Animal Freedom Korea to get the South Korean Government to withdraw a back-door effort to legalize dog meat. Attendees were shocked to learn that the Korean Ministry of the Office for Government Policy Coordination announced in March plans to “hygienically control” dog meat. As Animal Freedom Korea have indicated, “Whether or not the Office officially legalizes it, by managing and inspecting dog meat, the Government is essentially permitting it.” Hygienically controlling dog meat is nothing more than a euphemism for legalizing it. If this proposal succeeds, millions of dogs will continue to suffer, but now with the Government's watchful approval. Cats don’t fare any better­viewed as pest animals, they are boiled alive so their “juices” can be extracted for health tonics purported by butchers to alleviate symptoms of rheumatism. According to In Defense of Animals, dog slaughter involves, "...two million South Korean dogs are electrocuted, strangled, or bludgeoned to death each year. Then they're boiled, skinned, browned by a torch, chopped up and eaten". Also according to IDA, "Thirty percent are stolen from families that love them. Most are homeless dogs, captured by butchers and sold in open markets". For more info, go here, and here. For info on what you can do, go here. Pictures and report from Korean Trade Expo: 1, 2.

Pablo Paredes Puts the War on Trial

San Diego, 12.05.2005 18:01

On May 11th, 2005, Pablo Paredes was found guilty of missing movement. The unauthorized absence charge was dismissed. Sentencing continues today, May 12th in the court martial.

BUT, DURING THE PRE-SENTENCING PHASE...Marjorie Cohn made ABSOLUTE MINCEMEAT OUT OF THE PROSECUTION!

So much so that the military judge in the court martial said, "I BELIEVE THE GOVERNMENT JUST PROVED THAT ANY SERVICEMEMBER HAS REASONABLE CAUSE TO BELIEVE THAT THE WARS IN YUGOSLAVIA, AFGHANISTAN AND IRAQ WERE ILLEGAL"

Read more from the court martial attendees

As his court martial took place, outside around 50 supporters performed act 1 of the 3 act play "Put the War on Trial", which Pablo wrote. Following that they marched through Logan Heights and received a warm reception. One person driving by said "Thank you for coming to our neighborhood! Gracias para venir a nuestra barrio!" The march ended at the gates of the 32nd naval base where supporters held banners over the bridge, rallied on the sidewalk and showed their support for Pablo and everyone with the courage to resist this illegal and immoral war all day, in the unrelentingly hot sun. Support events will continue today with act 2 of Put the War on Trial and a film night fundraiser.

San Francisco Shows That it is Still a Pro-Choice City

San Francisco Bay Area, 12.05.2005 18:00

Refuse & Resist! Bay Area mobilized against Operation Rescue at the The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists Conference. OR came to San Francisco to harass, intimidate, and defame the women's health professionals who participated in the conference. Operation Rescue had a small number of people out during each day of the conference, and groups such as Refuse & Resist and the RCP went out at different times with literature and banners to show their support from the ACOG conference attendees. Operation Rescue's planned civil disobedience against the conference seems to never have materialized.

Educators Protest To Support Schools And Protest Governor's Broken Promises

San Francisco Bay Area, 12.05.2005 17:20

5/12/2005: In cities across the state, thousands of California Teachers Association members took part in scores of events on May 11 to celebrate teaching and to protest the governor's broken promises on education as part of California's 23rd annual "Day of the Teacher" celebration.

In San Francisco, the United Educators of San Francisco celebrated California's official "Day of the Teacher" by rallying and lining the streets at the corner of Van Ness and McAllister to educate the public about their contract fight and the governor's attacks on public education. About 300 UESF members and supporters lined Van Ness at McAllister after school, building power for upcoming battles with both the state government and local contract negotiations. Signs and chants mostly focused on Bodybuilder-turned-rightwing-populist-politician Arnond Schwarzenegger. Schwarzenegger is currently pushing for a special election on which to place 2 ballot measures: one which would eliminate teacher tenure and another which would make huge cuts to all state workers retirement packages.

through streets broad &amp; narrow: crying five for 50, and ten for a pound. The end of Moore Street?

Ireland, 12.05.2005 16:00

Commentary and photos on proposed changes in the north inner city. Moore Street in Dublin is one of the oldest surviving street trading districts in the city. Recently the City Council announced that it was raising the yearly cost of a trading license by roughly 450%, depending on the size of the trader's stall. Some traders pay around 150 euros a year (rising to 750 euros a year) for a smaller stall, such as the fish traders; whereas the flower sellers at the Henry Street junction, because of their location and the area of space they take up, could see their trading license fees rise to over 1500 euros. All of the traders I spoke to were adamant they would not pay the increase, and a couple said that this measure was just the latest in a long line of attempts to rid the street of the traders by the authorities, short of ordering them off the street which would be far too politically sensitive. Other proposals have been made in the past that would ultimately mean the removal of the traders, such as the idea to have Moore St and Henry St covered with a glass roof (discarded eventually), or the construction of a new hotel and conference centre on the Carlton Cinema site, which would include the demolition of many existing small shops on the east side of the street, and the eventual removal of trading space from the street.

Why is Dublin City Council putting the squeeze on the street traders? They are a part of Dublin folklore at this stage, and the street is a shining example of a living city centre, with noise, colour, food and drink from all over the world. Even in the last ten years, the character of the shops on the street has undergone a radical transformation, reflecting the continuing mutli-ethnicity of the north inner city. Shops selling Eastern European, Russian, and African food sit alongside old reliables such as Trader Johns pub and Buckley's butchers. Dublin City Council says the rise is to cover the costs of cleaning the street daily, but the main reason for the squeeze relates to a very important and strategic piece of property that belongs to the Council, which is a big part of their regeneration plans for the inner city, and specifically the "markets" district near Smithfield in Dublin 7. Dublin City Council's Wholesale Fruit and Vegetable Market Building is located at Mary's Abbey, which is the continuation of Abbey Street west of Capel Street. You can see it on your left as you are on the LUAS on the way out to Tallaght. It is a listed building, and was built in 1892. It is considered an architectural 'jewel' on the northside of the city, with its red and beige brick, arches, pillars and distinctive features. At the moment most of the fruit & veg that comes into the country is collated here by wholesalers, strapped onto pallets, and then delivered by truck to different parts of the country. Night owls passing through the district early in the a.m. are often astounded by the amount of activity, with forklifts, pallet trucks, and even horse & carts shunting and packing all sorts of food. This is repeated daily, and the activity usually dies down mid-morning. The area could be considered a "primary industry" zone, with numerous warehouses surrounding the central core of the Market Building. The Council wants to turn this building into a public food market, similar to the English Market in Cork City. The market would sell upmarket food direct to the public, as happens every weekend in the market in Meeting House Square in Temple Bar. There are no indications as yet of how much it would cost to run a stall at the new market. The plan is to move the current wholesale market out to a greenfields site somewhere on the M50 motorway ring, so that nationwide deliveries would have easier road access. There has been resistance to this move by many of the fruit importers, such as Fyffes, who have large premises close by, as well as other medium-sized businesses. The large fish market building next door to the fruit market is being closed down, and this is earmarked for demolition for the creation of a large public plaza/square, with the nearby public house The Hacienda being turned into a historial interpretative centre for the locality*. None of the other buildings in the area are considered to have any architectural value, many admittedly are fairly ugly warehouses and depots. The departure of the central Fruit Market would probably have the knock-on effect of most of these premises being demolished, bought out by private investors (or quite possibly the City Council) and redeveloped into residential units. The other effect of the removal of the Fruit Markets from this area would mean the demise of the Moore Street traders. They purchase most if not all of their produce in this locality. It is cheap and easily accessible, and these prices are reflected in the prices on the street stalls, which are usually much cheaper than supermarkets. The Moore Street traders are primarily from long-established inner city working class communities, and most quite simply would not have the capital or outlay required to set up in the new gourmet public market. To put this into a bit of perspective. If there are roughly 50 traders on the street (I only counted about 30), and each of them is paying an average increase of 850 euro, this means that Dublin City Council will take in an extra 42,500 euro in license fee revenue. Anti-asylum seeker TD Noel O'Flynn's recent fact finding trip to South America with 2 other Fianna Fail and 1 Fine Gael TDs cost in the region of 14,000 euro. Other TDs have been on similar trips. Perhaps a plebisicite could be held for the citizens of Dublin, deciding whether the money should be designated to pay the increase for the Moore Street traders, or instead fund three fact finding missions for Fianna Fail & Fine Gael TDs. After all it is the taxpayers money (i.e. yours!) that is bankrolling all this.

Harrisonburg May Day Free Fair brings crowds

Richmond, 12.05.2005 14:01

On Sunday, May 1st, the Rising Up Collective, a local anti-authoritarian group, organized a May Day Free Fair in Harrisonburg, Virginia, bringing together an estimated 100-150 people. A banner hung along N. Main Street announced the May Day Free Fair, which was held on the Our Community Place Lawn across from the Little Grill co-op restaurant. Organizers and participants brought heaps of donated clothes, books, appliances, CDs, toys, and food-- homemade and dumpstered-- all of which were given out for free. As people perused the fare, a bluegrass band from Blacksburg played music, Harrisonburg Copwatch gave a Know Your Rights training, and Rising Up organizers presented a skit, and later a teach-in, on the history and meaning of May Day. Members of Harrisonburg's large latino immigrant community told about the yearly May Day demonstrations in their home countries. The Free Fair went from 11am to 3pm, during which an estimated 100-150 people, including immigrants, students, workers, homeless people, young and old, came and enjoyed a day off work to give and receive for free.

Refuse & Resist! Bay Area mobilized against Operation Rescue at the The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists Conference. OR came to San Francisco to harass, intimidate, and defame the women's health professionals who participated in the conference. Operation Rescue had a small number of people out during each day of the conference, and groups such as Refuse & Resist and the RCP went out at different times with literature and banners to show their support from the ACOG conference attendees. Operation Rescue's planned civil disobedience against the conference seems to never have materialized. A press conference by representatives of the City of San Francisco and pro-choice organizations was planned for Wednesday, May 11th.

5/12: Screening of &quot;Speak Out: I Had an Abortion&quot;

San Francisco Bay Area, 12.05.2005 06:00

“Speak Out: I had an abortion," a documentary by Jennifer Baumgardner and Gillian Aldrich, will be screened on Thursday, May 12th from 7-9pm at 777 Valencia, between 19th and 20th at New College of California. This film features women speaking candidly about their experiences with abortion. “Speak Out” showcases the voices of the first generation of women whose reproductive rights were recognized and safeguarded by the US. This film was made as part of the larger "I had an abortion" campaign, which Jennifer started last year in response to what she sees as the attempt by the right to foist a false consciousness of regret, terror and sadness on women who have had abortions. After the screening, women who have had abortions will have a space to speak up and tell their abortion stories publicly. This program is sponsored by New College’s Center for Education and Social Action and EXHALE, a woman’s counseling organization.

WFTRA and How one working mother experiences the cruelty of NewSpeak

Portland, 12.05.2005 02:31

Are you a working parent? Do you have what the police state condescendingly refers to as a "domestic partner"? Do you and your "DP" (that is, your mate) have a child together? If your family is made up of people who are unrecognized by George Bush & co, then you're about to feel the sting of yet another rip-off, hidden in the fine print, behind the reassurances of yet another lie. It's called the "Working Family Tax Relief Act," (WFTRA) and like the "Healthy Forest Initiative," or the "Clean Air Act," or any of a number of other Bush doctrines, it's title is bald faced disinfo.

Many people aren't aware of its impact just yet. Although Bush signed the WFTRA into law last October, and it became effective in January, it's been somewhat of a sneak attack. It was slipped quietly past us, and those who crafted it purposefully distracted us with the banner headlines above the stark reality contained within. Because despite the title, it actually means a tax INCREASE for many, many working families, mine included. You won't really see the impact until you see your tax return next year, but if you're in the midst of filling out open enrollment forms for your health benefits, like I am, then you are getting an education in slimy tax policies right now.

On May 7th the second anti-occupation conference was held in Iraq. Conference participants rejected any talks with the new government unless it clearly seeks a timetable for the withdrawal of the US-led occupation forces. “We want an official and clear timetable for the withdrawal guaranteed by the United Nations and neutral international bodies,” said Harith Al-Dari, the Secretary General of the Association of Muslim Scholars (AMS) and a member of the conference’s secretariat-general. “Only then, we will offer our hands to the government, otherwise we will carry on with our peaceful opposition until we achieve our goal ...
