Free Press Int'l Takes Heat for Slighting Local Affairs

Saint Louis, 25.05.2005 18:00

The Coalition Against Police Crimes and Repression (CAPCR), in St. Louis, has been working to support the establishment of a Civilian Review Board in the City of St. Louis. The proposed Board would be formed as an independent Civilian Oversight mechanism that would primarily allow for neutral investigation of complaints against the Police.

Free Press, a media reform group, has recently descended on the city of St. Louis with its second National Conference on Media Reform. Residents and activists in St. Louis have asked the conference to support the idea of a citizen oversight board to help diminish police brutality.

Fighting Racism in Cape Girardeau,Mo

Saint Louis, 25.05.2005 18:00

In July 2004, I lost my mother, my best friend to blatant discrimination and negligence from a very oppressed and racist hospital. After several attempts of trying to resolve this matter peacefully with the hospital, all efforts where ignored. So on March 26,2005 my family along with the National Alliance of Black Panthers gathered in front of St. Francis Medical Center in Cape Girardeau, Mo to protest in a peaceful manner. We wanted to shed light on the past events of racism and un-fair treatment of African Americans, as well as Minority Medicaid recipients. A call to action to converge upon the small racist town of Cape Girardeau on June 25, 2005 at the St. Francis Medical Center located at 211 St. Francis Dr. 11:00am for a protest against their discriminatory practices against Blacks and people on medicare. Calling all activists, concerned citizens and those people who will stand against racism and oppression in the state of Missouri.



St. Louis Police intend to use hidden surveillance cameras at fair and who knows where else.

Saint Louis, 25.05.2005 18:00

The St. Louis Police Department has announced its intentions to install “spies in the skies” over crowds at Fair St. Louis this year. These are sophisticated remote controlled cameras. The technology was first used to violate the rights of those attending St. Louis Mardi Gras. The cameras will be mounted high on utility poles around the event and controlled wirelessly from vehicles where the images will be transmitted.

Ask your state rep to vote for SB 329 to expand drug purchasing pool

Portland, 25.05.2005 15:21

Friday SB 329 to expand Oregon's Prescription Drug Purchasing program (OPDP) to more Oregonians and businesses passed the Oregon Senate by a vote of 19-11. Please send a quick note encouraging your Representative to support SB 329.

What's At Stake: SB 329: In 2003, prescription drug legislation was passed, creating the Oregon Prescription Drug Program, in an effort to provide relief from excessive prescription drug costs to those most in need. Expansion of this program through SB 329 would provide further relief to more Oregon families, and to Oregon businesses, while simultaneously reducing costs to the state budget.

Currently, only those over 54 years of age with incomes less than 185% of the federal poverty level qualify for participation in the Oregon Prescription Drug Program. SB 329 would remove this age limitation, increase the income requirement to 300% of the federal poverty level, and open eligibility to a limited number of private industry employers who cannot provide prescription drug coverage to their employees.



Transport minister pied for support of Heathrow expansion lobby

United Kingdom, 25.05.2005 15:20

Alistair Darling, Secretary of State for Transport, was pied on Tuesday at the launch event of a powerful new industry coalition, 'Future Heathrow', formed to ensure expansion of Heathrow goes ahead.

A climate change activist gained access to the high security event and as the first speaker welcomed all the suits to their exclusive little back slapping event, she sprang up and planted the carrot and cream cake firmly in the face of the Minister. As she did so, she said "Future Heathrow stinks, your bogus economics stink, Alistair Darling being here stinks, and your vision for this planet stinks". She ejected by security guards but not arrested.

Meanwhile over 100 local residents took time off work to demonstrate outside the CBI HQ launch event, with a huge banner reading 'Future Heathrow Stinks', and a new report that concludes that Heathrow contributes little to the national or local economy, but simply lines the pockets of the aviation industry.

NYCLU: Prolonged Detention Prior to Arraignment a Common Occurance

NYC, 25.05.2005 14:21

The NYCLU today released a study of NYPD arrest statistics for the months immediately following the RNC. The data compiled by the New York City Bill of Rights Defense Campaign (NYCBORDC) reveals that in October and November 2004 more than 16,000 arrestees were held for longer than 24 hours in New York City. A shocking 62 percent of arrestees in the Bronx -- the borough with the largest minority population -- were held for longer than 24 hours. In Queens 21 percent of those arrested were held longer than 24 hours. More details can be found at www.nycbordc.org. "The excessive detention that occurred during the RNC is a routine occurrence in the criminal justice system, and is a problem that unfortunately is faced daily by communities of color of New York City," said Udi Ofer, Project Director of NYBORDC.

Same-Sex Parental Rights Argued Before California Supreme Court

San Francisco Bay Area, 25.05.2005 07:30

On Tuesday, May 24th the California State Supreme Court heard three cases involving the rights of children born to lesbian parents. All three cases pose the question of whether both partners in a same-sex couple who use reproductive technology to have children together are legal parents, as they would be if the partners were married. In her argument before the Court, National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR) Senior Staff Attorney, Courtney Joslin, argued that, "all children, not only those born to married or heterosexual parents, must have a legal right to support and care from both people who brought them into the world."

Joslin argued one of three cases currently pending before the Court. NCLR's client, Emily B., is seeking child support from her former partner for the twin children that they conceived and raised together prior to their separation. NCLR Legal Director Shannon Minter argued on behalf of amici in the Kristine H. case, also before the Court. According to Joslin, much is at stake with the court's ruling: "The California Supreme Court's decision will decide whether these children will be protected, or whether we'll turn the clock back to the day when children born outside of marriage were punished for being 'illegitimate.'" Read more

Most California courts that have considered the issue thus far have ruled that only a birth parent or an adoptive parent has a legal relationship to the child. The state domestic partner law that took effect this year granted equal parental status to registered domestic partners, the majority of whom are same-sex couples. The law, however, does not apply to partners who had already broken up or to couples who have not registered with the state. Those two groups certainly outnumber the 27,000 couples who are now on the registry.

Monsanto to Public: Ignore the Rats and Eat the GMO Corn

DC, 25.05.2005 03:01

Organic Consumers Association Reacts to Monsanto’s Latest GMO Deception WASHINGTON, DC – Consumers have another reason to avoid foods laced with genetically modified organisms (GMO). Yesterday, European news outlets reported harmful health impacts on lab rats that were fed Monsanto’s root worm resistant corn (Mon 863), now grown and sold in the US. Monsanto, the world’s largest producer of genetically modified corn, soybeans, canola and cotton, appears to have disregarded their own research on the harmful impacts of their GMO corn on rats. According to the London based Independent which broke the story, “…secret research carried out by Monsanto shows that rats fed the modified corn had smaller kidneys and variations in the composition of their blood.”

The image of the bones comes back to me, at odd moments of the day.

Human skeletons lined up one after another on tables, engraved in my memory as the white enamel of grade school cafeteria tables. They are packed tightly together. Some are arranged by size. One table holds the skeletons of children, shockingly diminutive. In classroom after classroom, where adolescents once studied, these bones have been the sole occupants of Murambi Technical School since April 21, 1994.

Transport minister pied for support of Heathrow expansion lobby

United Kingdom, 25.05.2005 00:31

Alistair Darling, Secretary of State for Transport, was pied today at the launch event of a powerful new industry coalition, 'Future Heathrow', formed to ensure expansion of Heathrow goes ahead. Meanwhile over 100 local residents took time off work to demonstrate outside the CBI HQ launch event, with a huge banner reading 'Future Heathrow Stinks', and a new report that concludes that Heathrow contributes little to the national or local economy, but simply lines the pockets of the aviation industry. Future Heathrow is led by Clive Soley, once a Labour MP, now Lord Soley, now heading up this sleazy bunch of planet trashers with a multi-million pound budget to over ride the residents and the planet. Nobody expected the Secretary of State to make the phenomenally stupid mistake of so publicly siding with the aviation industry over such a controversial project. But he did, and was repaid with carrot cake, cream and major political embarrassment.



'Carlo Tried To Resist: This Is The Truth' : Giuliano Giuliani

Ireland, 24.05.2005 23:30

Interview With Father of Carlo Giuliani Murdered In Genoa In July 2001 Giuliano will be speaking in the ATGWU hall at 7.30 pm at a meeting organised by G8 Mobilise Ireland. www.freewebs.com/mobiliseireland. G8 Mobilise is supported by The Green Party, Sinn Fein, the SWP, SP, Labour Youth, Irish Anti War Movement and others. For details of transport to the G8 call 0878289243 or e-mail mobiliseireland@hotmail.com I interviewed him (helped by a translator) last week. The interview is copy left and can be reproduced freely by any not for profit activist organisation Giuliano Giuliani is a leading Italian Trade Unionist whose son Carlo was murdered by the Italian Police during the July 2001 protests in Genoa against the G8 Summit. Since Genoa, Giuliano and his wife Haidi have become stalwarts of the international anti-globalisation movement, speaking at countless events and protests as well as campaigning for justice for their son. He will speak at a public meeting organized by G8 Mobilise on Thursday 26th May in Dublin. Four years on from Carlo's murder, do you feel any closer to achieving justice for him? It is very difficult after waiting for four years to even think about achieving justice. But we are doing everything possible to ensure that the truth be acknowledged. Carlo was killed while he was trying to defend the others and himself from being shot at by the police. Carlo tried to resist: this is the truth. Along with this truth, we also want to find out the exact chain of command on those days, and we want someone to take political responsibility for Carlo's murder. This is absolutely necessary for our country, for democracy, and in particular for all the other young people who are looking for a better world. How have the police behaved during the investigation? Terribly, no investigation has really been carried out, not even into the most disgraceful and violent behaviour of the police. After he was hit by a bullet, Carlo was kicked while he was lying on the ground and then one policeman broke his forehead with a stone. This is the behaviour of Nazis. So was what they did at the Diaz school or at the Bolzaneto barracks or in the streets: torture, extremely violent beatings, both physical and mental. These facts are unworthy of a civilized society and they cannot remain unpunished. Instead they are trying to cover, to hide and to mix up everything. Some Judges are also not doing their jobs, because dismissing a case, like Carlo's murder, contributes to the truth being hidden. Article/Interview in Full As Submitted on the Indymedia Ireland newswire “To protest is a right, even more so when the goal is spreading justice and equality” Giuliano Giuliani is a leading Italian Trade Unionist whose son Carlo was murdered by the Italian Police during the July 2001 protests in Genoa against the G8 Summit.

Some Judges are also not doing their jobs, because dismissing a case, like Carlo's murder, contributes to the truth being hidden. What message do you have for those who are thinking of attending the protests against the G8 in Scotland this summer? To protest is a right, even more so when the goal is spreading justice and equality. In Genoa this right was denied. The state colluded with anyone they could to deny this right. They colluded with various groups: criminals, fascists, hooligans as well as some dangerously naive people who had deluded themselves into thinking they could defeat capitalism by breaking some shop-windows or setting cars on fire. These acts, ironically, indirectly profit the insurance companies, a strong aspect of financial globalization! The strength of the movement will be in its principles and its goals. It also lies in the movement's ability not to rise to provocation, and to demand that the police do their job with coherence and dignity. In terms of building the resistance to globalisation, both within Italy and internationally, how important do you think Genoa 2001 was? Genoa showed the strength of a movement which is united by values: solidarity, a desire for justice, and an economy freed from the ultra-liberal dogma of the market. These values are capable of forging unity much more effectively than any one ideology. For this reason, Italy's right wing government, with the full support of their allies internationally, tried to stop it, using all the might of violence and repression. In Italy they went further than others might have, because the current right wing government totally lacks all moral values, and they saw in the movement, which was strong and vocal in its support for these values, a serious threat to its power. Do you think Berlusconi will be defeated in the coming general election? If so what hopes do you have for the alternative broad left government? Every local election result over the last two years has been a defeat for Berlusconi. He and his government are in crisis. Apart from the penalty points system and the smoking ban in public areas and on trains, not one of his recent initiatives has had any real support. The government has only been interested in solving the personal legal problems of Berlusconi and in increasing his personal economic power. Italy is in the midst of a very serious economic crisis: we are in full recession. One family out of every four -especially in the South, but also in some areas of the North- cannot make it until the end of the month. In the last week of every month even milk sales drop! Millions of workers' contracts are not being renewed, and the government is doing nothing other than making promises to reduce taxation, which will disproportionately favour the rich. Even the employers' organizations and those trade unions involved in national agreements with the government are becoming very critical. Unions are organizing a general strike. All the conditions are there for Berlusconi to be defeated and for the biggest embarrassment of our recent history to be removed from Italy. This is a goal that is shared by the whole centre-left spectrum, which on this point has found a strong unity. But to rule properly in the interest of the country we need a coherent programme, completely alternative to the one of the right. This programme still does not exist, and this delay is worrying. What role do you think radical political parties can have in the social movements? This is complicated. The so-called radical coalition could win over 15% in the next general elections in Italy, thus potentially making up 1/3 of the opposition. The coalition is therefore crucial to the victory of the opposition, so it will influence government policy. The problem is that that the coalition is divided and fragmented into five different parties or groups. So there are leadership problems, problems of representation, and petty power struggles that sometimes affect the movement and can be the cause of crises that have nothing to do with the values of the movement. We need to get back to a principled tradition with some real goals such as democracy, social rights and protection for all (especially the most vulnerable), access for all to basic goods, a rejection of ultra-liberalism and a submission of the market to the rights and dignity of the people. Giuliano will be speaking in the ATGWU hall at 7.30 pm at a meeting organised by G8 Mobilise Ireland. www.freewebs.com/mobiliseireland.

Fight Dem Back website goes live!

Aotearoa, 24.05.2005 23:21

After many years of dormancy, 2004/05 has seen a drastic upsurge in the activity of race-hate groups in both Australia and New Zealand.

In Western Australia, Jack Van Tongeren and his associated Australian Nationalist Movement thugs embarked on a massive campaign of racial violence and vandalism. A campaign which saw a number of their members put behind bars.

In New Zealand, the National Front gathered the dregs from ten years of racialist inactivity and united them under the one banner. As expected, the re-emergence of Kerry Bolton and his head bovver boy, Kyle Chapman also coincided with physical assaults on refugees and on Maori cultural symbols.

In Sydney, Melbourne and Newcastle, the notorious Jim Saleam was back to his old tricks with a new group of impressionable youth under his wing, the Patriotic Youth League. Re-hashed National Action stickers and posters began popping up and in Newcastle at-least, physical assaults on international students followed.

This upsurge in activity also encouraged the smaller fringe groups like the White Pride Coalition of Australia and the New Zealand Nazi Militia to rear their heads up.

All was looking good for the racists until a dedicated group of activists from both New Zealand and Australia came together to fight dem back!.

Action Day for a Better California Rallies Against Governor's Reforms

San Francisco Bay Area, 24.05.2005 21:20

The Alliance for a Better California, which is a statewide organization that includes labor unions of educators, public service workers, and service employees, has called for an Action Day for a Better California to demonstrate against the governor's so-called "reforms." Rallies will be held on May 25th in Sacramento and Los Angeles.

ABC has united, it says, "to protect our state, while the governor continues to raise more special interest contributions than any governor in state history. We don't need to waste $70 million on a special election that no one wants with initiatives that no one supports. We need real reforms that will move California forward, rather than broken promises and short-sighted proposals that will further damage California public schools. Help send a message to the governor that the 'special interests' he keeps referring to are thousands of ordinary citizens and workers concerned about public school children, hospital patients, and overall public safety." The 5/25 Sacramento Rally begins with entertainment at 3:30pm

UC Students to Rise Up to Oppose UC-Bechtel Collaboration

San Francisco Bay Area, 24.05.2005 21:20

On May 11th, the University of California (UC) announced an unprecedented partnership with Bechtel Corporation, BWXT Technlogies, and Washing International Inc. to jointly bid for the management of the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) in New Mexico. Not only does this arrangement poise the UC to continue to manage potential Armageddon during a dangerous new phase of US nuclear development, but it establishes an alarming new frontier in UC-corporate connections.

Students from across the UC system will converge at the UC Regents meeting at UC San Francisco Laurel Heights on Wednesday, May 25th to speak out in opposition of the bid. After a planned meeting at 9 a.m. outside of the Laurel Heights building, the students will command the floor during the Regents' public comment period at 10 a.m. At roughly 11:20, they will conduct a rally outside the conference building. They are inviting people to join them in opposing the nuclearization and corporatization of the UC, or if they are not able to attend, to make announcements explaining the UC-Bechtel proposed partnership and the UC bid for the labs in classes. Organizers say, "It’s time to get UC out of the nuclear weapons business." Read more history about Los Alamos

Pilsen Labor Organizer Attacked

Chicago, 24.05.2005 18:01

Photo La RazaFor more than a year, workers at La Casa del Pueblo, a grocery store located at 18th & Blue Island, have been trying to form a union, (UFCW Local 881) despite egregious union-busting tactics from the store's owners.

Recently, the National Labor Relations Board concluded a months-long investigation of unfair labor practices and reached a settlement with the store, requiring the store to pay over $30,000 in back wages to several workers who had been laid off or had their hours cut in retaliation for their organizing activities. The store was also required a sign promising not to engage in any of a two-and-a-half page list of illegal union busting activities that workers had reported experiencing at the store.

Last Tuesday, union organizer Alfonzo Diaz's car was firebombed outside of his home in Pilsen. While no evidence has been found tying the fire bombing to the owner of the store, there is wide speculation that this crime could be a response to the settlement and the latest and most egregious retaliation that Alfonso and his coworkers have experienced for their union activities.

Antifraud Illinois E-voting Bill Faces Roadblock

Chicago, 24.05.2005 16:53

March 19From the newswire: "A bill [moving its way through the Illinois General Assembly] designed to protect Illinois voters from the election fraud through electronic voting has stalled in the Illinois House just weeks before the end of the legislative session and the purchase of thousands of e-voting machines by Cook County and Chicago. Although Illinois is one of 14 states that requires a voter-verifiable paper ballot to be attached to each machine, that piece of paper will prove meaningless if it is not the legal ballot. SB 1683 - Elections-Provisional Ballots bill gets rid of this loophole as well as several others. The bill, co-written by the Oak Park Coalition for Truth and Justice, has already passed the Senate but has been stuck in committee in the House for two weeks. The bill must pass before the end of the session, to affect elections in spring 2006 when e-voting machines are expected to be operating in every precinct in Chicago and Cook County."

Sharon Gets Hostile Reception in D.C.

DC, 24.05.2005 16:02

Leave it to Israel’s Ariel Sharon to bring everyone together! His appearance in Washington, DC, on May 23, 2005, brought out hundreds of vocal demonstrators. The occasion was the annual conference of AIPAC, which is a part of the alien-based Zionist Cartel juggernaut. Ex-U.S. Sen. Ernest F. Hollings (D-SC) said, “The Iraq War was for Israel.” Are Sharon and the Zionist Cartel scheming a repeat performance for us with Iran and Syria?
