Black Box Voting in New York?

NYC, 18.05.2005 12:02

But Bo Lipari with the grassroots organization, New Yorkers for Verified Voting, has been traveling the state exposing the potential pitfalls of this 21st century technology. On Sunday he spoke at the Community Church of New York. Sarah Turner has the story.

Help protect Oregon's wild horses from slaughter

Portland, 18.05.2005 07:22

This Thursday May 19th, the us government will vote on whether Oregon's wild horses can be slaughtered using federal tax dollars. You could make a difference.

Leave a short, simple message, something like this: "Please tell Congressman Walden to vote to protect Oregon's horses from slaughter on Thursday." You can personalize the message with information like that you love horses, consider horses to be a symbol of freedom, whatever.

Call before Thursday May 19!

300 people gather in Beaverton to rally against proposed Walmart

Portland, 18.05.2005 07:22

Tonight at 7pm about 300 people gathered in the gym of Cedar Park Middle School to attend a rally put on by Save Cedar Mill. Save Cedar Mill is the group that has formed in just 90 days to a size of about 1000 people. It was a well organized and well set up rally complete with door greeters (that was me!), interesting speakers, and a large turnout. It was a kind of pep-rally to keep people motivated and interested in the cause. The other purposes of the rally were to inform people on how to argue their points (the idea is to focus on things like traffic and how it will effect the community, not on bad business practices or anything personal), to get people involved by signing and distributing petitions, and to sell materials such as lawn signs and t-shirts. The purpose of generating revenue is to hire our own traffic analysts and to pay for our legal fees in the fight against Wal Mart. read more >>

Leave My Child Alone

DC, 18.05.2005 06:03

*You may not know it, but under a little known provision of No Child Left Behind, public high schools must hand over personal information about students -- including minors -- to local military recruiters. I think it's a real invasion of family privacy. The good news is, parents can get their kids off this list by submitting a request in writing to their school district superintendent. * leavemychildalone.org

MeetUp's Fees

NYC, 18.05.2005 02:22

(from the Open Newswire): Yesterday, Meetup Inc. the social networking site started charging fees of 19/month to have their groups meet and this has led many group managers to quit as organizers.

As a manager for the New York Book Club, a small group whose few members fluctuate from month to month I have decided to step down as an organizer as many other organizers that I have spoken with plan to do, rather then pay the new mangers fee.

Coping With the Personal and Family Costs of War

Tennessee, 17.05.2005 22:02

Since the soldiers began returning from the Iraq war at the turn of the year, my therapy practice has been inundated with a variety of problems that come from the soldiers' experiences in this war. One result that all therapists expected was PTSD, post traumatic stress disorder. Symptoms may include nightmares, flashbacks (even reenactment), disturbed sleep and hyper vigilance. This can be caused by a variety of incidents, from life threatening experience for the soldier himself to the experience of a good friend or buddy being injured or killed.

5/16/2005:California State University Fresno (CSUF) president John Welty has issued a memorandum prohibiting undercover “surveillance activities” by campus police officers. The statement was viewed as a significant victory by student activists on the campus who have been concerned about civil liberties violations and the erosion of academic freedom.

Protest Tells CACI &quot;You're Not Welcome in SF&quot;

San Diego, 17.05.2005 20:01

On Monday, May 16th, a protest was held to launch a campaign to get CACI International to leave San Francisco. Campaign organizers say that CACI employees were involved in the Iraq torture scandals, and that the company provided many interrogators who worked at the Abu-Ghraib prison. CACI's vice president and other top executives were in San Francisco to make a presentation at an investors' conference at the Westin St. Francis Hotel in Union Square. Several people from the campaign to shut down CACI's San Francisco office attempted to meet with the CACI officials, but they were removed from the hotel.

Policyjne represje po antyszczycie - dzień drugi

Poland, 17.05.2005 16:02

Po wczorajszej demonstracji przeciwko Szczytowi Rady Europy zatrzymanych zostało co najmniej 11 osób. Rozchodzących się po proteście demonstrantów legitymowano, część zatrzymano i przewieziono na komisariat na ul. Belwederską.

Tam odbyła się pikieta solidarnościowa, około 40 osób domagało się wypuszczenia zatrzymanych. Na miejsce przybyli policyjni negocjatorzy i przedstawiciele Fundacji Helsińskiej.

Od wczoraj policja udziela sprzecznych informacji, co do losów zatrzymanych. Najpierw w nocy długo odmawiała udzielenia informacji rodzicom zatrzymanych. Dziś pojawiła się wiadomość, jakoby zatrzymani mieli zostać przewiezieni na ul. Wilczą, jednak najprawdopodobniej zatrzymani wciąż przybywali na komisariacie na ul. Belwederskiej. Informacja, że 8 osób zostało zwolnionych również nie były prawdziwe. O godzinie 15 rzecznik prasowy policji powiedział, że wszyscy zatrzymani przebywają teraz u prokuratora na Kruczej, gdzie będą przesłuchiwani do 17.00. Powiedział również, że 10 osobom postawiono lekkie zarzuty, jednej - czynną napaść na policjanta. Wiadomo także, że zwolniono już z komisariatu członka AI. Został mu postawiony zarzut użycia przemocy wobec funkcjonariusza w celu uniemożliwienia wykonania czynności służbowych.

Dosłownie przed chwilą zwolniono kolejne 3 osoby. Postawiono im "lekkie" zarzuty typu: lżenie funkcjonariusza, utrudnianie czynności służbowych.

Organizatorzy wczorajszej demonstracji apelują o solidarność z Zatrzymanymi: bombardowanie policji faksami, mailami i telefonami. Osoby znające dane zatrzymanych osób proszone są o wysłanie ich na adres: maj15 at lists.riseup.net. Jednocześnie organizatorzy proszą o nie podawanie tych danych do publicznej wiadomości.

BARDZO WAŻNA PROŚBA: wszystkie osoby, które mają zdjęcia/ nagrania, na których widać młodego chłopaka w okularach, z kamerą, w pomarańczowej kamizelce z napisem PRESS, filmującego zajścia na placu zamkowym, proszone są o kontakt z redakcją imc lub mail na adres: rita at riseup.net.

Students demand Free Education

Aotearoa, 17.05.2005 08:01

400 students and staff from from several tertiary institutions in Wellington marched to parliament today in protest against student debt, for free education, for a universal student allowance, and for higher staff wages. This was certainly one of the biggest student demonstrations in recent years. [Report] [Photos] Students are currently protesting against the reduction in public education spending all over the globe. In Germany the university of Freiburg is still occupied by anti-fees protesters. Thousands of students went on strike in Quebec, Canada, last month. And in Chile, students have clashed with riot police on several occasions over the last few weeks in their struggle against a new law that will cut education spending.

PROTESTERA DEN 7 MAJ - för upprättelse och uppehållstillstånd

Sverige, 17.05.2005 02:30

Lördagen den 7 maj arrangerar kampanjen ”Flyktingamnesti 2005” en nationell protestdag för att sätta press på riksdagens ledamöter att acceptera kravet på flyktingamnesti. Det handlar framförallt att rucka på stålaxeln mellan socialdemokraterna och moderaterna som idag upprätthåller resultatet av en omänsklig flyktingpolitik – nu senast genom att vägra apatiska flyktingbarn amnesti. - Det växer fram en folkrörelse i Sverige och allt fler ansluter sig till kravet att alla de flyktingar som drabbats av den havererade och sjuka flyktingpolitiken i Sverige ska få rätt att stanna och upprättelse för det människovärde de berövats, säger Erik Helgesson aktiv i Flyktingamnesti 2005 Göteborg.



Husockupation i Visby

Sverige, 17.05.2005 02:30

Det var vid halv två-tiden (torsdagen 12 maj) som första spadtaget till den nya kongresshallen i Visby skulle tas i samband med en ceremoni. Då upptäckte man att gamla ICA-lagret, huset som ska rivas till förmån för kongresshallen, var ockuperat. Ett okänt antal personer hade barrikaderat sig på övervåningen. Banderoller rullades ut från fönstren och från ockupanternas stödgrupp utanför huset. »50 miljoner åt helvete« och »Autonomt kulturhus nu« var några av slagorden från demonstranterna som ser kongresshallsbygget som ett lyxprojekt och att pengarna och huset skulle kunna användas på ett mycket bättre sätt. Ockupanterna föreslår att pengarna borde läggas på mer direkt samhällsgynnande verksamheter, till exempel vård och skola. Man vill också att ICA-lagret, som nu ska rivas, istället ska få bli ett ungdomshus. Uppdaterad 18:30 Uppdaterad 22:30

Battle of the Biscuit: Women Take Back the Green Bridge

Portland, 17.05.2005 02:21

About 100 people gathered on the corner of Highway 199 and Eight Dollar Road in the Illinois Valley this morning to protest logging at the Biscuit timber sales. The crowd walked a few miles to the closure line and were not met by any law enforcement. The closure blocks public access to the Fiddler timber sale and the famed Babyfoot Lake area.

A group of women crossed the closure line and walked 3 illegal miles of public land to the Green Bridge. Five women locked arms and sat down on the bridge, blocking logging trucks that were carting away Fiddler Mountain Old-Growth. All five were arrested and taken to Josephine County Jail.

The over-reaching Biscuit project has resulted in more than 60 arrests since Old-Growth Reserve logging began March 7. The Green Bridge, leading to the Fiddler sale, is the location of dozens of arrests in the last couple of months. Twenty-two women spanning four generations were arrested on one day in April for refusing to move from the bridge, incuding one woman who was hanging from a platform suspended above the epic Illinois River. The area has since been under a broad closure, denying the public access to the area and any opportunity to monitor logging activities.

So kids, did you have a good time Manchester styleee? Hope so, because I certainly did. I have been to going to parties in Manchester centre, outskirts, Wales and Leeds; for a number of years. This was one of the most exciting parties I've ever been to down at the old hospital again. This event will surely be remembered for a long time for good and unfortunately relatively minor bad reasons.

For in excess of 99% of the time and for 99% of the people; this night was an amazing experience, of unity, freedom, celebration, understanding and peace. With a huge number of sound systems attending and an amazing Victorian setting, this meeting was an event not regularly witnessed. A creation of freedom for freedom, and a sly finger-up to the laws and lores of modern western society.

Actions calling for an end to the Iraq war were held across the US on Sunday, May 15. Protestors wore numbers to dramatize the more than 100,000 Iraqis and 1,600 US soldiers who have died in the war. In Philadelphia, anti-war activists staged a die-in at the Liberty Bell, while in Seattle, Boston, and elsewhere, peace advocates held candlelight vigils, and other actions.

Mother's Day for Justice?

Richmond, 16.05.2005 22:01

Activists gather to celebrate mother's day in Norfolk; local African American activists challenge white peace movement. Activist and poet Queen Sheba of Norfolk, VA publicly chastized white activists last Saturday for not supporting the work of local African-American activists and for decrying war abroad while ignoring violence, poverty, and racism at home. Queen Sheba was speaking half-way through the annual Mother's Day for Peace and Justice Rally in Norfolk. The rally drew about 150 people from Norfolk, Charlottesville, and Richmond. Queen Sheba and other members of "Word Up", shared their critique of both white activists and of the empire as part of a 2-hour line up of speakers, musicians and puppetistas. Food Not Bombs served a meal. After the rally, about 50 people and several large puppets marched about a mile up the road to a Martin Luther King, Jr. memorial and held a closing rally. As peace rallies go, this one is kid friendly, has interesting speakers, good food and isn't far from the beach. The march, however, was long and pretty lacadaisical, with most folks tired from the rally. By the time we wrapped it up, it was 6pm, a long time after the 1pm lunch. This is an important place to be and a good mother's day example, but my hopes for next year include a shorter rally, a livelier march and some concrete way to address both the militarism and the racism of the city of Norfolk. Meanwhile, Queen Sheba's challenge hangs in the air.
