&quot;NOT IN MY SCHOOL&quot; say Auckland Anarchists

Aotearoa, 15.05.2005 13:01

Auckland Anti-Capitalist Group Radical Youth is blowing the whistle on an internet filtering device in public schools that independent legal advice declares is probably in breach of both the Human Rights Act 1993 and the Bill of Rights, 1990. The illegal censorship was uncovered on Monday Afternoon when a 17 year old auckland anarchist decided he would check the world anarchist news on www.infoshop.org from a school computer in his public high school. Instead of the website being displayed as had happened in the past he was shocked to discover it had been blocked by a web filtering device called, WATCHDOG CORPORATION.

March for Nicolas David Alvares

Portland, 15.05.2005 01:21

Today a group of anarchist protestors marched through downtown portland carrying a mock casket in honor of nicolas david neira alvares, a 15-year old anarchist beaten to death by police in bogota, columbia on may day.

The turn-out was small, but focused, and began at pioneer square and made its way through downtown--blocking the bus here and the streets here and there--and to the saturday marketplace, and then down 1st avenue to the world trade center, where the casket was left at the door under the guard of a security officer who raised his fist in solidarity with the marchers when they arrived.

Take Back the Night 2005 in Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz, CA, 14.05.2005 23:21

Take Back the Night is an international rally and march that is organized in local communities with the purpose of unifying women, men, and children in an awareness of violence against women, children and families. The event is a collaboration of community and campus and other interested persons who are ready to take a stand against violence and make the night safe for everyone.

Women are often told to be extra careful and take precautions when going out at night. In some parts of the world, even today, women are not allowed out at night. So when women struggle for freedom, we must start at the beginning by fighting for freedom of movement, which we have not had and do not now have. We must recognize that freedom of movement is a precondition for anything else. It comes before freedom of speech in importance because without it freedom of speech cannot in fact exist.

Although the march emphasizes that violence against women occurs at all times, we are particularly concerned about violence at night. Take Back The Night Rally and March: Thursday, May 19th at 6:00 PM starting from UCSC's Baytree Plaza.

LGBT Groups Call for Boycott of Israel and World Pride

San Francisco Bay Area, 14.05.2005 22:00

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors recently voted to support the World Pride celebration that is planned for this summer in Jerusalem, Israel. This decision has sparked criticism from LGBT groups that oppose Israel's policies and actions in the Palestinian territories. A number of organizations have announced a boycott of the celebration, which is slated to take place in the contested city of Jerusalem on August 18-20, saying that Israel's policies toward the Palestinians make a mockery of the theme of the event, "love without borders". "No city in the world could have more borders than Jerusalem," said Kate Raphael-Bender of QUIT!.

Rafael-Bender says that Israeli borders continue to encroach further and further into Palestinian territory, and are enforced by military checkpoints and cement walls. QUIT! is urging people to observe ongoing international boycotts of travel to Israel and Israeli products as a way that the international community can exert pressure on Israel to withdraw its forces from Palestine. "For internationals to stay away from this event will send a very clear message to the Israeli government," Raphael-Bender says, while noting that the situation is different for people in Israel. Local LGBT groups Black Laundry and the Palestinian lesbian group Aswat plan to participate in the event and use it to draw attention to the injustices that Palestinians are subject to under the Israeli occupation.

QUIT! has produced a 15-minute video to counter the one produced last summer by Blue Star PR to promote World Pride. QUIT!'s "Love Without Borders?" piece presents the true image of Jerusalem, a city divided by a 25-foot concrete wall, which has caused death and destruction in Palestinian communities for the last two years.

Jobless America: Outsourcing Prosperity!

Baltimore, 14.05.2005 21:01

How can there be a so-called “economic recovery” without the creation of new jobs? Well, thanks to author, activist and social critic, Stanley Aronowitz, we now know the scheming Plutocrats have been able to “delink” the two. Speaking in Baltimore, MD, at Red Emma’s Coffeehouse, he detailed some of the means used to deprived workers in this country of their jobs. Outsourcing, of course, is only one of those Labor-bashing tactics.



Chapela Announces Weeklong Events on Biotechnology

San Francisco Bay Area, 14.05.2005 21:00

Ignacio Chapela, the controversial biology professor at UC Berkeley, announces Dreams of Reason, a weeklong event around and about the new biotechnology building being built at University of California Berkeley. In 2001, Chapela and his graduate student David Quist discovered genetic contamination from GMO corn into native maiz species in Oaxaca, Mexico. The organized corporate attack resulted in the denial of tenure to Chapela despite overwhelming support from his colleagues.
During the week of May 16-21, Chapela is inviting the Bay Area community to join him in resisting the corporatization of public education and science.

From the event announcement: "Please receive this message as an invitation to participate in this time of reflection upon the hull of the bioengineering building. In order to make visible a development which has grown mostly out of public view, I invite those who might agree with me that the time has come for Biology either to follow the path of secrecy, big-money and dogmatic thinking, or to imagine itself as a project of diversity and life.
At the start and close of every day during the week of Monday, May 16 - Friday, May 20, we will circulate our meaning about the Bioengineering Building, 7 - 8 am and 8 - 9 pm. Some of us will ride our bicycles, carrying questions to the Biotech Dream. Please bring your bike, if you so wish, for either a morning or evening ride. With the onset of darkness, starting at 9 pm, we will congregate for performances and thoughts across the street. Please bring light with you, and any refreshment you might wish to share."

An Open Letter Concerning the &quot;Student Left&quot;

New Hampshire, 14.05.2005 19:02

An article written in Fall of 2004 by L. Cahill and C. Norton, two ne'er-do-wells from Northeast Antifa (NH). "God"'s last throes and deathbed rattles have been going on for such a long time--in the form of Capitalism, Fascism, and Communism, for example--that there's still a lot of "creative destruction" to be carried out by post-Bakuninist post-Nietzschean commandos or apaches (literally "enemies") of the old Consensus. - Hakim Bey In the interest of dignity and discourse there is no need to plunder the names of certain student groups, networks, clubs, or action committees that are in existence at this time; their manifestations few as they are. With that said, this letter represents an equal distribution of contempt toward most of the activities of the student left in America. The culmination of blasé Liberal activism up until now has only succeeded in reinforcing the entire miserable state of modern capitalist existence.

“Seymour Hersh, Other Prominent Media Personalities Offer Perspectives on Media Control at University of Illinois Conference”

Urbana-Champaign, 14.05.2005 15:02

Democracy Now’s Amy Goodman was one of several distinguished guests, including Seymour Hersh, Rep. Bernie Sanders, Phil Donahue, Naomi Klein and other prominent media professionals. ...Hersh claimed the Iraq War was increasingly being conducted “off the books” by mercenaries, retired military personnel, and private contractors beyond the scope of accountability. ... “Body bags aren’t going to stop him,” Hersh said, referring to Bush. ...According to...Congressman (Sanders), this media distortion is no accident; as fewer and fewer corporations control more and more media outlets, viewpoints are increasingly channeled and contrived to benefit narrow commercial interests at the expense of the public good. ...Klein defined the obsessive prominence of the Michael Jackson and Terri Schiavo cases in the media as “spasms of collective mourning.”

On The Road to Hell - The Battle to Save theTara-Skryne Valley Begins

Ireland, 14.05.2005 13:00

'All hands on deck' sez Wag 'Stall them diggers' Two recent pieces on the campaign to save the Tara Skryne valley { photos by redjade © } No AlternativeBut Legal Action By Vincent Salafia ''The M3 will pass within 1,200 metres of the top of the Hill of Tara. A 52 acre interchange will be clearly visible from the Hill, and over 40 individual archaeological sites within the valley between Tara and sister hill Skryne will be systematically demolished by archaeologists using mechanical diggers. Then the bulldozers will finish the job. Campaigners are now left with no alternative but to support a legal action that will seek a High Court injunction and judicial review of the Minister's decision.'' The Road to Hell by Dr. Muireann Ni Bhrolchain Spokesperson for The Save Tara/Skryne Valley Campaign The decision of the Minister of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government to give consent to "a programme of archeological works" to proceed "at sites along a section of the proposed M3 motorway" will ensure that for this government the M3 will be the road to hell. This is the worst planning decision that has ever been taken by an Irish government. We will be the laughing stock of Europe and the World. The Minister had the power to protect the monuments in the path of the motorway - instead he has chosen to destroy. To destroy the heart of our premiere sacred, ancient capital. The Minister and the Taoiseach will become the 'Terminators of Tara' if this road goes ahead. A statement on behalf of Edel Bhreathnach, Joe Fenwick and Conor Newman who have worked on the archaeology, history and literature of Tara since 1991 says: "Today is not only a dark day for Tara, but a dark day for Irish culture". It goes on to say: "This is a shameful decision that will have repercussions far and wide." Despite warnings from all the experts, the advice given by the Halcrow Barry Route Selection Report and by archaeological companies employed to give the NRA advice the Minister has chosen to plough ahead with this horrific desecration of Ireland's premier sacred site. The Taoiseach and Minister Roche met with myself on April 27th and again I emphasised to them how unadvisable this route was. The new CEO for the NRA met with Edel Bhreathnach and Conor Newman over the past week but again all our arguments fell on deaf ears. This is but one battle in the war to protect our heritage. The excavations alone could take years and will be an unnecessary expense. But the next step is to take the case to the European Parliament, to go court in Ireland and to the European Court if necessary. The protests will now be escalated far beyond the polite noises that have been made heretofore. We cannot continue to allow this Government to ride roughshod over our cultural heritage. The Minister has the nerve to say: "The directions which I have given represent a measured approach. They are both comprehensive and onerous. They protect heritage". But then the Taoiseach of this government said: "I don't know who was there five thousand years ago and I'm sure they were very significant people". Well the 350 academics who signed a statement presented to the self-same Taoiseach could tell him all about who these "significant people" were. Sam Green of the Landmarks Foundation, New York said in his recent letter to the Irish Times: "What are these politicians up to? Are they not to be compared to the Taliban, who erased their past with dynamite? … The world is in awe of Tara, the world reveres Tara. The world is watching with disbelief." Is this our gift to our future generations? No Alternative But Legal Action By Vincent Salafia The world is shocked and appalled at the directions to proceed with the proposed route of the M3, given today by Dick Roche, Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government. Within hours of the decision, the LA Times, ABC News, BBC and the Guardian were featuring the story. The M3 tolled motorway, approved by An Bord Pleanala in August 2003 is to run from Clonee to Kells, with two toll booths. The cost will be over 1 billion, with 30 million euros being allocated to excavate all sites within one year. The M3 will pass within 1,200 metres of the top of the Hill of Tara. A 52 acre interchange will be clearly visible from the Hill, and over 40 individual archaeological sites within the valley between Tara and sister hill Skryne will be systematically demolished by archaeologists using mechanical diggers. Then the bulldozers will finish the job. Campaigners are now left with no alternative but to support a legal action that will seek a High Court injunction and judicial review of the Minister's decision. Numerous solicitors letters' have already been sent to: the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government; Meath County Council, the National Roads Authority, putting them on notice that the decision to proceed as planned would be illegal under Irish and EU law. Another possible Defendant will be the Public Private Partnership consortia that is awarded the contract to finance, design, construct and operate the Tara toll road. Several multinational companies are bidding on these contracts, including Kellogg Browne and Root, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Halliburton. Legal advice is currently being taken and a challenge will proceed within the eight week Statute of Limitations time period. Now that directions, under the National Monuments Act have been given, the excavation contract will now be put out to tender. Cultural Resource Development Services Ltd is the company that is expected to be the only bidder on the contract. But that process must be complete before exavations can begin. http://www.indymedia.ie/attachments/may2005/tara.gif

Monterey Bay Area Labor Terminates Governor's Visit

Santa Cruz, CA, 14.05.2005 04:04

Organized labor in the Monterey Bay area is a potent force -- powerful enough apparently to intimidate Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger from visiting Salinas. The Governor was planning an appearance in Salinas on Wednesday to commemorate the opening of a new California Highway Patrol facility, but when a sizable protest organized against him was publicized, he canceled out at the last minute on Tuesday evening. Representatives from Schwarzenegger's office deny that he had planned on being at the Salinas ceremony, but insiders confirm that the city was preparing for the governor's visit.

Various labor groups have been organizing against Schwarzenegger throughout the state. The first was the California Nurses Association, who have protested his ban on safe nurse-to-patient ratio mandates in medical facilities throughout the state. The California Teacher's Association and California Federation of Teachers have worked in solidarity opposing Schwarzenegger's theft of two billion dollars from last year's education budget, which has yet to be returned. Meanwhile, schools throughout the state are suffering from budget shortfalls. Other labor groups, including state and school employees and service workers, have fought the privatization of the state's retirement system, cutbacks to Worker's Compensation and the Governor's proposed anti-Proposition 98 special election slated for November.

Despite the governor's absence, the demonstration on Wednesday brought record numbers of union supporters out into the streets of Salinas, according to Monterey Bay Central Labor Council's Executive Director, Paul Johnston. He estimated that there were 100 - 200 representing a wide variety of unions in the morning and another several hundred of school employees who arrived in the afternoon. "Outside of farm worker demonstrations, this is probably one of the biggest in the last 50 years," he observed.
