Local Actions take aim at defeating CAFTA: pickets, Street Theater and a plea in the name of god

DC, 17.07.2005 19:01

The Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA) is a trade agreement between the US, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. Opponents to CAFTA see it as an agreement that will continue to pit workers in the US against workers in Central America in a race to the bottom. A race characterized by low wages, human rights violations, environmental destruction, union busting, corporate interests, and the marginalization of women. A free trade agreement viewed as a step towards the larger, much more ominous Free Trade Area of the Americas.

Violence Continues In Iraq

San Francisco Bay Area, 17.07.2005 01:01

7/16/2005 Every day in Iraq brings dozens of new civilian deaths in attacks carried out by US forces and the Iraqi Resistance. Between January 1st and June 30th of this year, figures from the Ministries of the Interior and the Defense showed 275 Iraqi soldiers and 620 police were killed in bombings, assassinations or armed clashes with insurgents, while the Iraqi Ministry of Health estimates that 1,594 civilians were killed during the same period. Some estimates of civilian casualties since the US invasion started now surpass 128,000.

A look at a few of the attacks in just the past week reveals the extent of Iraq's suffering. On July 10th, ten men suffocated in police custody. Also on July 10th, a car bomb exploded Kirkuk, and there were other bombings in Tal Afar and Baghdad. On July 12th, a bomb at a Sunni mosque killed several and wounded over a dozen in Jalowla near the Iranian border. In Kirkuk, a suicide bomber killed 3 persons and wounded 15. In west Baghdad, guerrillas invaded the offices of a construction company and killed 4 persons, wounding one. The bodies of 11 Sunni men were found on July 12th hours after they were taken by Iraqi security forces in early morning raids. On July 13th, 26 Iraqis, mostly children died in a suicide car bomb attack on US forces that were handing out candy (some Iraqis claim the US troops are using children as shields). Also on the 13th a bomb exploded at a Sunni mosque in eastern Iraq, killing two people and wounding 16. On July 15th, there were 10 suicide bombings in Baghdad alone, killing several dozen people. On July 16th almost 60 people were killed in suicide bombing near a Shia mosque.

While the United States still has over one-hundred-thousand troops in Iraq, splits between the Iraqi government and the US are starting to emerge. One of the clearest signs of this split is the growing closeness between Jaafari and the government of Iran. Jaafari has apologized to Iran for the Iran-Iraq war and there are signs that Iran may become involved in training Iraq's armed forces.

Update on 7/8 Anti-G8 Protest in San Francisco

San Francisco Bay Area, 16.07.2005 07:20

Hundreds gathered in San Francisco on July 8th for an anti-G8 solidarity protest organized by Anarchist Action. With corporate property targeted for destruction and an officer injured after police drove their car into protesters, the protest incited a "feud" within the SFPD and sparked discussion in the community. A week later, one protester is still being held on a $50,000 bond and the FBI is now investigating the incidents. Read the full story



WAMM March for Medical Marijuana

Santa Cruz, CA, 16.07.2005 07:02

The Wo/Men's Alliance for Medical Marijuana, supporting organizations and the community at large sponsor the WAMM March for Medical Marijuana on Saturday, July 16th, 2005 at 12 noon on the Pacific Garden Mall, in downtown Santa Cruz.

To join the MARCH please meet at the corner of Pacific Avenue and Cathcart Streets at 11am. (Staging for the event begins at 11am.) The MARCH will begin at 12pm. We will proceed walking north up Pacific to Church Street, then assemble at Santa Cruz City Hall where we will hold a rally & press conference at about 1pm.

We estimate more than 1,000 people will participate in this demonstration of community solidarity opposing the recent decision of the Supreme Court and of Congress that leaves sick and dying Californians vulnerable to persecution from the federal government.

In a symbolic act of compassionate access WAMM patient members will lead the March carrying live medical marijuana plants. This solemn event will honor the 154 WAMM members who have died since WAMM's inception in 1993.

Karl Rove's Defense is No Defense

Tennessee, 16.07.2005 05:04

The Right Wing is arguing that Rove did not know that Valerie Plame was a covert agent and is therefore not guilty. They are arguing that Rove does not have the requisite intent under the statute to be culpable for committing the crime of releasing the name of a covert agent, because he did not know that Plame was a covert agent. But the plain meaning of the statute shows that this line of argument does not matter . . .



High School Students to Hold Anti-War Rally on Campus

San Francisco Bay Area, 16.07.2005 05:01

7/14/2005: At Antioch's Deer Valley High School, Students for Peace and Justice has won a victory against the administration and will be able to hold an anti-war rally on campus. The school's administration had denied the students their free speech rights, while the military was permitted to have a rock band play on campus. The ACLU was contacted after the students were suspended on charges of allegedly harrassing military recruiters. The students' two days of on-campus suspension coincidentally included the very day their anti-war rally was supposed to be held. After negotiations with the ACLU, students won the right to hold a rally, and the suspensions were removed from their files. An open forum has been created on campus during lunch periods, and starting this fall, all student clubs now have the right to free speech. Full story

Call for Vigils to Honor Steve McWilliams

San Francisco Bay Area, 16.07.2005 02:00

7/15 Update: Americans for Safe Access reports that vigils are being planned in 16 or more cities.
Steve McWilliams committed suicide by overdose this week. He had been fighting federal charges for growing a small garden for the Shelter from the Storm Collective, in San Diego, was saddened over the Supreme Court decision in the Raich v. Ashcroft case. He was in a lot of pain, since he had been denied access to medical marijuana since his arrest in 2002. He had had to take powerful pharmaceutical opiates, anti-nausea, anti-migraine, etc. drugs in far higher amounts than when he had been able to medicate with marijuana. Apparently these medications were used in the overdose. Read more

Americans for Safe Access has put out a call for people all over the US to organize vigils to honor Steve McWilliams for the patient, caregiver, and activist he was. ASA is suggesting that the vigils be held on the night of Tuesday evening, July 19th.

Tenncare Enrollees Enter Week Four: Occupation of State Capital Continues . . .

Tennessee, 16.07.2005 01:03

Interview with Stan Davidson, Member of Tenncare Sit-in Core Group Stan Davidson is a Tenncare Enrollee who has been part of the core group that has been occupying the State Capital for twenty two days, going on week four. Davidson says that his group is a hodge podge mix of people of different ethnicities, different levels of physical ability, and various interests. Davidson says that there has been so much going around the State Capital that the core group hasn't been able to keep up with who has been coming and going, let alone what is happening in rural Tennesse organizing around Tenncare. He says that his group is unified in its desire to save Tenncare, the state's health insurance program for the poor and uninsurable, and that they are in this occupation for the long term, intending to continue to occupy the State Capital day and night until their demands are met for an open, transparent meeting with the Governor about Tenncare.



Nashville's Homeless Gather at State Capital to Urge Governor to Save Tenncare

Tennessee, 16.07.2005 01:03

Members of Nashville's Homeless Power Project held a press conference yesterday in front of the Governor's office on day 24 of the sit in at the State Capital by Tenncare Enrollees who were demanding to meet with the Governor to stop the Tenncare cuts and hold a public meeting. The organizers of the sit-in, many of whom are Tenncare Enrollees, say that the homeless are one of the most vulnerable populations to be cut off of Tenncare. Howard Allen, a homeless man without health insurance, says that may people will die in the streets if they lose their health care coverage.



Forest Service Begins Logging in Illinois River Canyon

Rogue Valley, 16.07.2005 01:03

Three years after dry lightning strikes started the Biscuit fire in southwestern Oregon's Siskiyou Wild Rivers area, the Siskiyou National Forest has begun logging forests in the Wild & Scenic Illinois River canyon.

"It's disappointing to see that with millions of taxpayer dollars and three years to work with, the Forest Service is still getting it all wrong," said Rolf Skar, campaign director of the Cave Junction based Siskiyou Project. "Instead of working together on real fire safety and creating restoration jobs, we're watching them log along the fish-rich Wild & Scenic Illinois River at heavy taxpayer expense."

The McGuire logging sale is located entirely in an Old-Growth Reserve that was to be shielded from cutting for sensitive species under the Northwest Forest Plan. It also logs the 3,529 acre Six Mile Creek roadless area - an uninventoried roadless forest near the giant Kalmiopsis wildlands.

Anti vivisection demos today

Aotearoa, 16.07.2005 01:02

#media_5206;left# The ANZCCART vivisectors conference is being held in town [ Wellington ] today, and they are doing their best to hide from protesters. This morning we found them and a small group of activists have been annoying them all day. heres an update on whats been happening today! Last night, some known vivisectors were spotted coming out of a hotel in central Wellington. This morning at 7am, a bunch of activists spread out around Thorndon, and followed vivisectors as they left the hotel to see where they went. Several bunches of vivisectors were followed and they all ended up in one place. The Royal Society Buildings in Halswell St, Thorndon. It looks like they couldn’t find a proper venue at all and all the vivisectors are crammed into the Royal Society Buildings. So, at 10-30 this morning a bunch of extremely pissed off activists turned up with drums and stuff and proceeded to deafen the vivisectors and ruin their little meeting. After an hour of this, we jumped into cars and headed out to Hutt valley for a pre arranged visit to the labs out there. [ Photos ]



The G8 and Indymedia

Aotearoa, 16.07.2005 01:02

In 1990, the G7 held its meeting in London. It passed by quietly. There were no 'red zones' and only a small protest took place. Eight years later, 400 social movements from around the world - under the banner of Peoples' Global Action - co-ordinated local resistance to global problems. In the UK 50,000 people came together to resist the G8 meeting. In 2005, the G8 returns to the UK. Inspired by the Zapatistas, who, in 1994, said YA BASTA! to neo-liberalism and declared war on the Mexican Governement on the day the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) went into effect, people have taken up Direct Action in every corner of the world to fight for another world. The summits of the financial institustions (WTO, IMF and the World Bank) and meetings of politicals leaders (G8, APEC, EU summits) have become the target of environmental and social justice activists. Radical media activists have played a vital role in covering these protests and actions. Indymedia has become the target of the authorities on too many occasions for telling the truth. In Genoa (G8 2001) the Indymedia Centre at the Diaz School was raided by the cops and media activists were beaten up brutally. In 2003 (G8 Evian) the Indymedia Centre in Geneva was also stormed by the police and dozens of people were arrested. In Wellington, Indymedia activists will set up an Indymedia Centre this week on 166 Cuba St. to report on the global protests. 'Berlusconi's Mousetrap', an account of what happened in Genoa at the G8 meeting in 2001, will be screened at 7:30pm on Friday, 8th July, at Thistle Hall (corner Cuba and Arthur St). Check out http://www.g8radio.net/ for live radio streaming from Scotland.



WORKERS CHARTER Movement formed in Auckland

Aotearoa, 16.07.2005 01:02

A Workers Charter movement was founded in Auckland on 2 July by 50 activists, with 20 more sending their support. Coming from an array of left groups, workers' unions and social movements, they were united in their desire to give workers a political voice.



HUNTLY MINERS SAY - NO SCAB COAL!

Aotearoa, 16.07.2005 01:02

Miners in Huntly fighting for a fair pay raise have been suspended by Solid Energy management, and are now looking for solidarity action from steel workers in Glenbrook Steel Mill, where a worker was killed on July 4th. Both groups of workers are members of the EPMU, but Huntly miners are furious that Glenbrook bosses are now using scab coal to keep their furnaces going. They are appealing to Glenbrook workers not to touch the coal. The miners were looking for 5% on top of the national 5% pay raise campaign, a militant "5+5" demand that keeps up with inflation. Following the lockout, they learned that the local Genesis Power station was selling their coal to Glenbrook, ensuring that a go slow there was beaten and that the steel mill was at full production. Huntly miners are furious that a warchest of "up to 150,000 tonnnes of scab coal" is now being used to starve their campaign into the ground.



G8 - Protests in Scotland and Aotearoa

Aotearoa, 16.07.2005 01:02

50 people showed up for a protest against the G8, Free Trade and Climate Change in Wellington. [ Report ] The proposed Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with China was auctioned off on Lambton Quay. Bidders traded workers rights, Te Tiriti o Waitangi, Democracy, Biodiversity and FUN for the FTA in return. A teach-in, film night and community dinner were also well attended. Auckland saw up to a hundred people gather in a Carnival Against Capitalism which included chalking, Food Not Bombs and speakers. Leaflets were handed out and well recieved, and some ACT Party members turned up with "Enjoy Capitalism" t-shirts providing comic relief. In Christchurch people gathered at Bedford row on Saturday to participate in 'the dance of dissent'. A street was occupied, a tripod set up, music was running and Food not Bombs seved free food. In Scotland activists protested all week. On Saturday, the 'Make Property History' bloc off the 225'000 strong 'Make Poverty History' march clashed with police. The Carnival for Full Enjoyment travelled around the streets of Edinburgh on Monday 4th, involving a cast of G8 Summit protesters, clowns, police and local people. The same day, Faslane, a nuclear submarine base, was blockaded by 2000 activists. On the first day of the summit, protesters blocked all roads to Gleneagles. 10'000 people were on a protest in Auchterader. The permieter fence to the Gleneagles hotel was dismantled. Many arrests were made throughout the week. The legal support team estimate that at least 700 people were arrested and 350 charged. According to BBC some New Zealanders were among the ones arrested. [ Report from H. Plant ] Update: A New Zealand medic was arrested on the 4th of July at the Carnival for Full Enjoyment and later forced to leave Scotland [Report].
