The land-house that stood abandonned since a long time, has been squatted last month of october, and soon it became a meeting point and a referent for the social-movements of the county (comarca). This afternoon at 7.00 pm there's a gathering in front of the courts of Granollers.

When the women of the yarn take the needle

When mentionning the workers movement only few times there's talk about women, but in sectors like the textile industry the women worker are struggling since many decades. Strikes like the one of Igualada in 1881 or the dialogues of Teresa Claramunt are an example that the struggle of the working women comes from far away in Catalonia. Recently the women working for Zara are once again taking the needle with strenght in order to claim improvements of and denounce the working conditions to which they're obliged in Galicia and in Zaragoza. If this continues that way, this force can get everywhere.

Sainsburys butt of this weeks joke

United Kingdom, 12.06.2005 18:30

On sunday (12th June), around mid day, eight protesters stripped naked in front of Sainsburys London head office in order to expose Sainsburys for continuing to sell products from animals feed with genetically modified crops.

All this week (13th - 17th), there is an openly publicised week of action outside Sainsbury head office in London. Each morning there will be some form of street theatre or general amusing shenanigans at sainsburys expense in order to make an example out of the companies failure to live up to promises made several years ago about phasing out GM feed animal products.



The Oregon Garden: Trouble in Paradise

Portland, 12.06.2005 18:21

I received my bright pink invitation in the mail again. It comes every year. It's the Oregon Garden, inviting me to renew my membership to the garden. (I received a membership some time back as a gift, but let it lapse after coming face to face with the horror of timber industry propaganda.) This is the letter I wrote back to them on the back of the form, which I will send in the envelope provided.

Yes, I would love to be able to renew my membership. The trouble is, however, that the Oregon Garden has allowed itself to become a tool for the dissemination of dishonest and dangerous propaganda for the timber industry. This is an industry that's destroying the Oregon that I love. The real "Oregon Garden" is (or was) a unique jewel. It is not confined to a tiny plot in Silverton, but lives in the green canopies of the very beautiful, very unique, and very endangered temperate Pacific rainforests of Cascadia. Greedy timber corporations are swallowing those forests whole, and leaving wastelands in their wake. Erosion, decimation, and monoculture are all that is left. Yet the Oregon Garden has inexplicably allowed the timber industry to install a purposefully erroneous exhibit there, claiming that they can "grow" a forest.

My Visit from the FBI and ATF

San Diego, 11.06.2005 22:01

On June 8, 2005 I was visited by agents of the FBI and ATF and questioned about the University Towne Centre fire of July 31, 2003 and the speech by animal-rights and environmental activist Rod Coronado in Hillcrest on August 1, 2003. That appearance has already led to early-morning raids on two other San Diego activists whose videotapes of the event were seized by the FBI, and Coronado's return to Southern California in May 2004 was met by even more intense repression. This time the FBI and ATF seemed interested mostly in obtaining photos of the audience at the Coronado event so they could scan them for "persons of interest" in the UTC arson investigation.

Quan les dones del fil agafen l'agulla

Quan es fa referència al moviment obrer poques vegades es parla de dones, però en els sectors com el tèxtil fa moltes dècades que les dones obreres estan en lluita. Vagues com la d'Igualada el 1881 o els diàlegs de Teresa Claramunt són un exemple de que la lluita de les treballadores ve d'enrera a Catalunya. Recentment les dones treballadores del Zara tornen a agafar amb força l'agulla per reivindicar millores i denunciar les condicions laborals a les que són sotmeses a Galicia i a Saragossa. Seguint així aquesta força pot arribar arreu.

Bolivien - Neuer Pr�sident &amp; Update

Germany, 11.06.2005 03:00

Seit Wochen demonstrieren Kleinbauern, Indigene und Gewerkschaften in Bolivien f�r eine Verstaatlichung der Rohstoffressourcen des Landes. Nachdem der ehemalige Pr�sident Mesa nach den massiven Protesten zum wiederholten Mal seinen R�cktritt erkl�rt hatte, hat das Land nun einen neuen Pr�sidenten: den Verfassungsrichter Eduardo Rodr�guez, der nun Neuwahlen ausschreiben muss. Die Situation im Land ist explosiv und die Proteste scheinen einen H�hepunkt zu erreichen. Das Fazit: ein Toter, viele Verletzte, ein neuer Pr�sident. Die v�llige Eskalation wurde abgewendet, die Probleme sind weiter ungel�st.

Reportback from The Save Oregon's Forests Boycott stUmpqua Bank Picket

Portland, 10.06.2005 23:01

The weather may not have been great and the numbers may have been few, but that didn't stop a handful of activists from picket in front of stUmpqua Bank this morning around 11:30 a.m. today. Two great big banners were revealed as others handed out information about stUmpqua Bank and their dastardly destruction of Oregon's ancient forests. The handout that was given went a little something like this:

stUmpqua bank is run by timber barons who are profiting from the destruction of Oregon's ancient forests. Allyn Ford, president of the board of (st)Umpqua Bank, is the owner of Roseburg Forest Products. Lynn Herbert of Herbert Lumber is also a board member, and the Herbert family are the largest stockholders of stUmpqua Bank.

Both Roseburg Forest Products and Herbert Lumber have long histories of destroying native eco-systems, turning salmon bearing watersheds into muddy rivers and ancient forests into fields of stumps and government-managed tree plantations. Currently Roseburg Forest Products is buying tress from the Biscuit Timber Sale as part of the deceptively named "Fire Recovery Project." This extreme logging plan, the largest in US Forest Service history, is mainly in Old Growth Reserves and Roadless areas. Many of these areas are completely unburned and others are part of a fragile post burn eco-system.



Bolivien - Pr�sident Mesa bietet R�cktritt an

Germany, 10.06.2005 22:30

Obwohl Pr�sident Mesa Neuwahlen vorgeschlagen hatte um die Situation zu beruhigen, trat der gew�nschte Effekt nicht ein. Weder die nun seit 3-4 Wochen f�r eine Verstaatlichung der �lindustrie demonstrierenden Menschen, noch die nach Autonomie strebenden Provinz Santa Cruz akzeptierten diesen Vorschlag als L�sung aus der Krise. Gestern nun hat Mesa, nach massiven Protesten, zum wiederholten Mal seinen R�cktritt erkl�rt; die Situation im Land is nun explosiv.

Rev. James Lawson Urges Tenncare Enrollees to Resist

Tennessee, 10.06.2005 22:02

"The letters going out to Tenncare recipients is an indication of the defeat of this process and not its victory. The game is not over, and the good Governor who was applauded as your Mayor of Nashville previously, thinks he has undergirded his position with a major change that will bring him to national prominence. I think what he has done has caused many of you to join together so that this is the time to create a movement of resistance so that what has happened gets reversed and indeed restores Tenncare to the strength and quality that it had in earlier years and bring it beyond this even to a new movement for universal health care."

In an effort to get the military out of schools, United for Peace and Justice, Educators against the War and UFTers stood outside several different high schools today handing out flyers warning students of the military recruiters who have been out in force because of the fresh crop of eighteen year olds available, terrible recruiting statistics for the last four months in a row and a war they want to feed these kids to.

Bizarre objects in the sky over Portland?

Portland, 10.06.2005 05:21

OK, this is pretty weird. My girlfriend and I were sitting outside in our backyard when I looked up to see this weirdly shaped object tumbling across the sky. It looked angular, reflective (it was reflecting the setting sun) and was moving north to south. We stared at it for a while and then a second object came by, moving faster. It was also reflective, but shaped (I swear I'm not making this up) like a donut. They moved like balloons, but certainly looked larger and more oddly shaped than any balloon I've ever seen. I ran to get my camera and took a few photos, but by that time they were further away and I couldn't make out any detail. Did anyone else see these?



Hollywood Liberals: More Shameless Crap From ABC

Portland, 10.06.2005 05:21

Watching "Primetime Live". Dianne Sawyer and Brad Pitt are in Ethiopia, walking through the sewage filled streets of some horrible shantytown. They're smiling, surrounded by hordes of smiling street urchins who don't know Pitt from a red ant. The movie star blathers on about how all these kids really need is money to save them from more starvation, abuse, war and God knows what else. This is a place where eight year old prostitutes sell for a QUARTER! Never once did anyone mention the recent election fraud of 6 weeks ago. Yesterday the Ethiopian government shot dead 22 protesters and arrested 600 who were peacefully rallying to voice their concerns. The election results still haven't been tabulated. The candidate supported by Tony Blair's government is the one accused of fraud. See the hand of the U.K. at work. ABC even had the gall to run a snippet of Pitt's latest movie in the middle of the show! The whole thing was just like a bad episode of those Sally Struthers ads for Save The Kids or whatever.



Pedalpalooza 2005 kicks off with a bike parade

Portland, 10.06.2005 05:21

Pedalpalooza kicked off it's 2005 bicycle celebration with a bike parade. At its max, the parade had 160 cyclists participating. Most people were costumed and had their bike decked out in fabulous decor provided by the nice people putting on the event.

The bike parade today left NW 10th and Johnson after gathering folks together and having them pimp their rides with everything from tinsel to flags. The parade route was planned by the organizers and apparently permitted as well.

Weekend of Resistance in Solidarity with Jeff &quot;Free&quot; Luers

San Francisco Bay Area, 10.06.2005 05:20

June 10th-12th is an international Weekend of Resistance with Jeff "Free" Luers. Luers is currently serving his 5th year of a 22 year and 8 month sentence for an action that, supporters say, "...did not hurt or threaten anyone. He burned 3 SUVs to make a statement about increased environmental destruction caused by fuel inefficient vehicles. It is believed and obvious that it is Jeff’s political beliefs that landed him this unjust sentence."

A Political Prisoner Speaking Event will be held on Friday, June 10th at 6:30pm at the New College Cultural Center in San Francisco. This speaking event will focus on the importance of prisoner support and what it means to be a political prisoner in the US. Local former prisoners and prisoner support activists including Luis “Bato” Talamantez and Rahula Janowski will speak. A short speech written by Luers will be read. On Saturday June 11th a Critical Mass Bike Ride for Luers will gather at 1PM at Justin Herman Plaza in San Francisco. There will be a film screening on June 10th at 7pm in Modesto. On June 11th there will be a video screening in Sacramento at 3pm at Juliana's Kitchen. Also on June 11th there will be a video screening in Santa Rosa.
