The Boston Social Forum: Another World is Possible

Boston, 25.07.2004 06:46

#media_4860;left# Starting on July 23rd, 2004, thousands of progressive people and organizations came together at the 3 day Boston Social Forum (BSF, http://www.bostonsocialforum.org). Following the 2004 model of the World Social Forum that happened in Mumbai, India, the Boston Social Forum is not a platform or an organization, and is, in their words, an “open space… a meeting place for reflective thinking, democratic debate of ideas, formulation of proposals, free exchange of xperiences and interlinking for effective action by groups and movements… committed to building a society centered on the human person.”

Michigan, 25.07.2004 03:58

DETROIT, 23 July, 2004 (PANW)--They came from a wide variety of social and political backgrounds, but they were united in opposition to the policies of the current administration in Washington. This was the general atmosphere on Friday at the mouth of Hart Plaza, where hundreds of critics of the Bush White House gathered to denounce the course of where the country has drifted since the assumption of power by the most conservative administration since the Great Depression.

NLG &amp; ACLU Appeal Judge's Decision That the DNC Week &quot;Free Speech Zone&quot; is Legal

Boston, 25.07.2004 00:35

The Massachusetts Chapter of the National Lawyers Guild (“NLG”) and the American Civil Liberties Union of Massachusetts (“ACLUM”) filed an appeal of the judge’s decision in the federal district court lawsuit brought on behalf of the public and members of the Bl(A)ck Tea Society, United for Peace With Justice and the Boston Coalition for Palestinian Rights against the City of Boston opposing the City’s unconstitutional attempts to confine and restrict demonstrators at the 2004 Democratic National Convention (“DNC”) to a claustrophobic and unsafe so-called “demonstration zone.” Despite the fact that Judge Woodlock stated that “[o]ne cannot conceive of what other elements you would put in place to make a space more of an affront to the ideal of free expression than the designated demonstration zone,” he ruled that this shocking infringement on plaintiffs’ First Amendment rights was lawful.

The Fightback Begins

www.indymedia.org, 24.07.2004 09:42

The summer is heating up as the Democratic National Convention(DNC) and the Republican National Convention(RNC) approach. Activists are being harassed in New York, Boston and the Midwest, but they continue to organize.

The police are doing their best to create a climate of fear in Boston, blanketing the city with surveillance cameras, preparing to arrest 2500 people, conducting random searches of passengers on public transportation and trying to make protesters gather in a "free-speech zone." The FBI is even claiming that a "domestic extremist group" is planning to attack news trucks. But local activists refuse to be cowed.

Anti-DNC action kicks off July 23 with the Boston Social Forum andcontinues with a "unwelcoming party", direct action and the "Really Really Democratic Bazaar." | Download a PDF of Indymedia's anti-DNC paper, The Independent



Is Kerry Pro-Choice?

DC, 24.07.2004 08:38

NOW, NARAL, and other pro-choice advocates tell us that this election is important, because the future of women's reproductive rights hinges on our selection of Kerry for President of the United States. We hear that the shape of the Supreme Court for years to come will be determined this November, and that the survival of Roe v. Wade depends on John Kerry making the judicial appointments for the next four years. For John F. Kerry (as he now prefers to be called) and John Edwards are the pro-choice "dream team". But is any of this really true? If these are the primary arguments in favor of electing the Democrats, then we should examine the factual record to determine if these things are, indeed, valid arguments at all. And as anyone familiar with the factual record knows, the claims simply don't hold water.

Farouk Abdel-Muhti, Recently Freed Palestinian Activist

www.indymedia.org, 24.07.2004 04:13

Farouk Abdel-Muhti died of a heart attack July 21. He was 56 years old.

Farouk was released from jail on April 12, 2004 after being held for two years without charge by US immigration officials. He was subjected to extensive interrogation, frequently put in solitary confinement, and sometimes denied food.

One mourner writes, "Farouk will be missed by all of us who were inspired by his resiliency in the face of so much suffering done to himself and his people. As a man born in pre-occupation Palestine, a judge ruled him to be a man without a country. But for those of us inspired by him, he died a citizen of the world."



How You Can Become a Plaintiff Against the U.S. Government

Tennessee, 24.07.2004 04:12

Do you think the Patriot Act is a violation of our Constitutional Rights? Have you petitioned your government regarding these matters? If not, do you want to? Do you believe that paying your Federal Income taxes right now is helping fund the war in Iraq, a war that you don't agree we should be fighting? Have you petitioned your government regarding your objection to our preemptively attacking Iraq? If not, do you want to? Ok, so do you want to be a Plaintiff in a class action suit against the United States government at no obligatory cost?



Teamsters Strike at Coca-Cola

www.indymedia.org, 24.07.2004 04:08

Teamsters in San Diego, California, who produce and distribute Coca-Cola products for Coca-Cola Enterprises went on strike today to protest the company's demand to dramatically increase workers' health care costs.

"Coke's greed has put nearly 500 San Diego families in jeopardy," said Jack Cipriani, International Vice President and Director of the Teamsters Brewery & Soft Drink Workers' Conference. "It is unconscionable that Coke would turn on the very people who work so hard to make the company the number one selling soft drink brand in the United States. Paying for those health benefits would have cost CCE less than what the company earned in 17 minutes last year."

The World Social Forum declared tomorrow, the 22nd of July, as an International Day of Action against Coca Cola. Organizers are encouraging schools and organizations to stop stocking coke machines and are asking individuals to refrain from buying Coca Cola products. In the US the campaign to boycott ‘Killer Coke’ is spreading across college campuses and communities around the country. The boycott was launched last year by the Colombian food and beverage workers’ union, SINALTRAINAL, to bring attention to the murders of Coca-Cola trade unionists there that they believe were executed by company-hired death squads in a country often described as the world’s most dangerous place for labor activists.

“The People” Get Ready to Take on Democrat and Republican Conventions

Michigan, 23.07.2004 19:01

Activists around the country are getting ready to converge on Boston and New York for the Democrat and Republican Party conventions. Nothing really noteworthy happens inside these conventions—they tend to be three nights full of speeches making empty promises and days spent cozying up to donors and representatives of large corporations while real democracy takes place in the context of protests outside the conventions.

The Democratic National Convention will start next week Monday, with activists planning a variety of actions including a “democratic bazaar” highlighting a possible vision of a better world as well as a decentralized day of action on the day John Kerry receives the nomination. In addition to street protests, this weekend there will the Boston Social Forum hosting a number of workshops and discussions under the banner “another world is possible.” For independent media coverage of the DNC protests, consult boston.indymedia.org and blackteasociety.org.



Come learn the 'T' at the Transgender Institute

Michigan, 23.07.2004 18:40

DETROIT - The theme of this year's Transgender Institute is 'Dishing T: Commercial Sex Workers vs. Mainstream Employment.' Demetris Taylor, organizer of this year's Institute, is making sure that bases are covered in getting the word out about the area's T- community. In past years, the Institute has only been open to people who self-identified as trans. This year, if you admit you need education and are willing to learn, you're invited. The event hopes to, "Challenge the images seen in what I see as the Jerry Springer era, as well as people who constantly refuse to see our trans sisters as human beings and are always negative and dehumanizing," says Taylor.

UPDATE: &quot;The NYPD did not disclose the url&quot;

NYC, 23.07.2004 17:32

Last week, we ran several pieces on the pre-RNC fear-mongering of the NY Daily News. With no evidence other than police sources and an alleged internet posting whose url they did not reveal, the Daily News ran a front-page story alleging that protesters were planning to fool bomb-sniffing dogs in Penn Station into sounding an alarm during the RNC. Now our friends at RNCwatch have revealed that not only does the supposed posting not appear to any google search, it was given to the Daily News by the police department, who "did not disclose the url of the website where they found this information, they merely quoted from it."
