G8 Protestors tell of Police Abuses

Scotland, 04.08.2005 13:14

Over 700 G8 protestors and innocent bystanders were detained or arrested last week in Scotland. A large number of them have been released with no charges after being held for days, often in isolation cells. Six prisoners on hunger strike released this week reveal that police deprived them of sleep for 73 hours, and at least one released prisoner was stripped of clothing as punishment for receiving a letter of support. A support group has called for a press conference, in front of the Sheriff’s Court, in Chamber Street, Edinburgh, at 2pm, on Wednesday, 13 July 2005.



G8: All eyes on Scotland!

Scotland, 04.08.2005 13:14

Before, during and after the G8 all media attention focussed on Scotland and the anti-G8 protests. Not only the mainstream media reported; over 50 Indypendent Media Collectives from Africa to Australia reported in at least 20 different languages in their editorials on the summit and the opposition. More numerous accounts and reports in the newswires. Here is a first summary of the features collected by Indymedia groups world wide.



Carnival for Full Enjoyment - What Really Happened

Scotland, 04.08.2005 13:14

Edinburgh's Carnival For Full Enjoyment was roundly condemned by the police, Edinburgh City Council and the mass media. But what was this anti G8 action really about? And what really happened on the capital's streets on 4th July? Here for the first time the Carnivalistas give their own account of the day....

World's first open-source POS system tested at People's Food Co-op

Portland, 04.08.2005 09:43

This past weekend People's Food Co-op in SE Portland made history. During a conference with tech and IT folk from co-ops around the country these uber-geeks assembled and successfully rang out items on the world's first entirely free, open-source point-of-sale system. A point-of-sale system (or POS) is the software needed to run a cash register and manage the pricing of all the items in a store.

It all started several years ago when Tak Tang, the Technology Coordinator at The Wedge Co-op in Minneapolis, MN got frustrated at his stores POS system because of his inability to get the information out of it that would really be useful to the store. Like most proprietary software POS systems have a locked core that prevents anyone from copying the source code and also prevents anyone from getting inside to mine data that the software wasn't designed to spit out. Not being able to get inside of the software means expensive service calls to vendors when something goes wrong. It also means having to wait to purchase the next version for new features and bug fixes.

Well all of this was really cheesing Mr. Tang off so he decided to go ahead and write his own POS system. And he DID! IS4C (Information Systems 4 Co-ops) was born.

'State of Oregon' to scan your irises and flouridate your water

Portland, 04.08.2005 08:43

I just heard on OPB that the Oregon state House just passed a bill requiring the Oregon DMV to collect biometric data for driver's licenses. I don't know what the actual bill states, but the reporter Colin Fogerty explained biometric data means iris scans and facial measurements. OPB reported that this bill is on it's way to the Governer's desk for his signature. I thought the Senate had to pass it as well before it went to the Governer, but I could be wrong. Jesus! Let's try to make it stop!



Pizza Time Negotiations Break Down

Portland, 04.08.2005 08:43

The former Pizza Time workers met with owner Heath Flores to discuss the reinstatement of four workers who lost their jobs in February. Flores broke off negotiations on Tuesday by flatly refusing all six terms of the written proposal. We had hoped Flores would work with us to reach an agreement. We offered to draw up a new proposal with Flores' input, but that idea was refused as well. Flores' final offer was the same as his first?we could turn in applications and may be hired and fired at will. We feel Flores is not taking the negotiations seriously and never intended to consider our position. read more >>

Cicty of Portland settles *another* Officer Leo Besner case

Portland, 04.08.2005 08:43

Today's Oregonian has an article about the City of Portland settling another police misconduct case involving Officer Leo Besner. It involved Besner and another officer tackling a teenage girl for no reason, except possibly being Hispanic. This incident happened on April 8, 2003.

Officer Leo Besner cost the City of Portland at least $165,000 in three weeks of work - he was also the one who arrested Bill Ellis on the morning of March 25, 2003 for holding a sign on the sidewalk (shown in the picture on the Week of Bombing action page) . He also arrested clergyperson Brent Was on Belmont for "jaywalking" - this case was settled very quickly by the city attorney's office.

I doubt the city will do anything about him, though...but let's keep these incidents in mind. Too often, information like this falls down the memory hole - that's the beauty of Indymedia, though - so much information remains available.

Portland, 04.08.2005 08:43

Greg Liles can be reached at (541) 772-6960The Hobson timber sale, part of the Biscuit Fire salvage logging hoax, located in an old growth reserve in the rugged Siskiyou Mountains is home to many rare & sensitive creatures including mountain lions, eagles, scorpions, rubber boas, & black bears. This area is currently being logged. The sale was bought by Greg Liles Timber Company, based out of Medford, OR. The sale has already been a focal pont of blockades & other actions that are on going. take action >>

Due to the many variables involved in forest defense, including the start of active logging at the Hobson timber sale, we have had to move the location of our resistance camp once again!

Wild Horses and Burros Need Your Help -- From the BLM

Portland, 04.08.2005 07:43

In a recent press release, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) called for horse lovers to come to the aid of America's wild horses and burros. While these animals do need your help, they must be saved from the BLM - not from the lands on which they have historically roamed. For over 30 years now, the agency responsible for protecting these national treasures has worked harder at undermining the 1971 Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act than at the very task they were assigned.



World Tribunal on Iraq : Final Declaration of the Jury of Conscience

DC, 04.08.2005 05:14

In February 2003, weeks before an illegal war was initiated against Iraq, millions of people protested in the streets of the world. That call went unheeded. No international institution had the courage or conscience to stand up to the threat of aggression of the US and UK governments. No one could stop them. It is two years later now. Iraq has been invaded, occupied, and devastated. The attack on Iraq is an attack on justice, on liberty, on our safety, on our future, on us all. We, people of conscience, decided to stand up. We formed the World Tribunal on Iraq (WTI) to demand justice and a peaceful future.

Hawaii national holiday celebrated, U.S. federal Indian policy contested

DC, 04.08.2005 03:13

Kanaka Maoli (indigenous Hawaiians) and supporters celebrate La Ho'iho'i Ea, a national holiday, while resisting US federal Indian policy and the continued occupation and militarization of Hawaii. This year, Kanaka Maoli and supporters focused on the Native Hawaiian Government Reorganization Act (the "Akaka Bill"), now pending in the U.S. Senate, which attempts to extend US federal Indian policy over Kanaka Maoli. ------------



Alamedans Organize to Stop Megaplex in Their City

San Francisco Bay Area, 04.08.2005 03:13

A protest was held in Alameda on Saturday July 23rd to say "NO!" to the idea of building a megaplex on the island. The city has a plan to build a seven-screen cinema and a six-story parking structure next door to the historic Alameda Theater. The issue continues to be debated at the Alameda City Council. Opponents of the megaplex say that the new theater is not what people wanted, because it is not a restoration of an historic theater, but rather construction of a new one. The group says that it would be a bad deal for Alameda taxpayers, and would create a parking and traffic nightmare. Read More

A Stop the Megaplex meeting will be held on Thursday, August 4th, at 7:30 pm at The Garden Room behind the Home of Truth, 1300 Grand Avenue, at the corner of Alameda Avenue. This meeting will include an update on the latest developments, set a strategy for the City Council meeting that will take place at 7:30pm on August 16th, and answer as many questions as possible. Plans will also be made for a phone calling campaign prior to the 16th.

Maribel Cuevas Felony Charges Dropped!

San Francisco Bay Area, 04.08.2005 03:13

In light of grassroots community organizing, pressure on local police, and people making connections between the Maribel Cuevas case and larger issues of police brutality, the Fresno Police have dropped the felony assult charges against 11-year old Maribel Cuevas. The website www.freemaribel.org, states, "Her attorneys report that Maribel and her family are hugely relieved that the Fresno police department's felony assault charges against Maribel were dropped on August 3, 2005. The family looks forward to recuperating for the rest of the summer before school starts up again for Maribel. The Cuevas family and their attorneys are very grateful for the international and national support that everyone has provided! Thank you all!" More info here.



Defend Freedom to Protest

United Kingdom, 03.08.2005 21:43

The latest legislation which will be used to repress protest is the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act which comes into full force on 1 August 2005. This Act amends previous harrassment and trespass legislation as well as banning all unauthorised protests for about a half a mile around Parliament, requiring that organisers of a protest request permission from the Metropolitan Commissioner 6 days in advance (or 24 hours in not 'reasonably practicable') and allowing him to place potentially stifling restrictions on protests.

Sections 132-138 of SOCP Act were brought in to remove Brian Haw from his continuous peace protest opposite the Houses of Parliament. Brian Haw has been demonstrating against the suffering caused by this government's foreign policy towards Iraq - economic sanctions, invasion and occupation - since June 2001.

Ironically, a High Court hearing on 29 July 2005 found that the law did not apply to Brian because prior authorisations is only necessary for demonstrations that 'start' after 1 August. But this law still affects everyone else who may want to protest in Whitehall, opposite Parliament, or in a large area of Westminster. Even the London Eye is part of the 'designated area'. The weekly anti-war community picket (http://www.globalwomenstrike.net/English2004/PicketLeafFront.htm) is likely to be quickly targeted.

This new law amounts to the police making political decisions as to who may protest - and how - near Parliament. Campaigners will be openly and peacefully defying the Act in a series of demonstrations at the beginning of August. [Photos and Reports 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 ]

There will be a Mass Act of Defiance for the Right to Protest on Sunday 7 August at 12 noon in Parliament Square.

Website coordinating the protests with loads of useful info about the new law.

Restrictions that can be imposed include where and when the protest may take place, how long it can last and how many people can attend, how much noise can be made and the number and size of banners or placards used.

A network of activists are organising a Freedom to Protest Conference on 23 October 2005 in London.

Bombs, not food: 10 million for famine, 500 million for military

Portland, 03.08.2005 17:43

After appealing for famine money since the locust plague last year, at the end of July the U.N. finally received a donation of 10 million dollars for the famine victims in Niger. Meanwhile Niger is receiving 500 million dollars in military aid, for, you see, Niger is a rich source of the Uranium required for the production of Weapons of Mass Destruction. This is on top of the millions Niger is receiving in the form of military training in what is supposedly training for the 'war against terrorism', but as is the case in all poor countries, is actually part of the machinary of oppression of the poorest people on earth, and thus best described as the 'war against revolution' , the exact same tactic you see practiced against the Bolivians, and all other third world people, and since it is for such a good cause, receives many billions in funding without the need for constant appeals.

Bombs not Food. This is the slogan for the current capitalist system, and unlike appeals for food money which go unanswered, Bomb money flows in a steady stream, forked over with remarkable generosity, as you would expect money to flow like gusher, when its for a good cause.



&quot;Some will fall so that others may be saved&quot; - A dispatch from Jeff &quot;Free&quot; Luers

Portland, 03.08.2005 17:43

Back in '98 when a friend and I started the Fall Creek Treesit, we sat alone in that forest; no ground-support, no other treesits - just us. We watched from our perch high in the canopy as Grandmother and Grandfather trees were felled to build the road. I remember spilling the coffee I was brewing on our little stove as I watched. My friend, the most mean and cynical man I've ever known, said the first and only kind words I've ever heard escape his lips:

"Some will fall so that others may be saved."

The tears streamed down my face in silent protest of what I was witnessing. Below, the loggers jeered and laughed. I donned my climbing gear and my knife. I was going to the ground, and, one way or another, this was gonna end.

Pastors for Peace Caravan celebrates successful return; Campaign to send seized computers to Cuba continues

Portland, 03.08.2005 17:43

Pastors for Peace announced a victory today when its 16th caravan crossed the International Bridge from Reynosa, MX into Hidalgo, TX after returning from Cuba. But there is still no word about release of the computers seized from the caravan's cargo last week. The caravanistas'energy and motivation were very high last night when they returned from Cuba to Reynosa, MX, and then assembled this morning for their 'reverse challenge' to the US blockade against Cuba.

As the caravanistas crossed the International Bridge in two school buses, supporters of the caravan in Reynosa accompanied them across the bridge, chanting "Cuba si, bloqueo no!"

Homeland Security officers spent nearly three hours interrogating caravan participants about the details of their trip, and two more hours searching every item of their personal luggage. But in the end, nothing was seized from the caravanistas, and all of them are back home in the US.

Around mid-day on August 2nd, the FCC issued a 24-hour demand for the shut-down of 106.9fm with a threat of a $10,000 fine. 106.9fm, one of two pirate radio stations operating in San Diego, has been reclaiming the airwaves for a little over one year.

NO MORE LIABILITY 4 GUN MANUFACTURERS &amp; DEALERS

The United States Senate passed - with 65 to 31 votes - S.397, a bill prohibiting civil liability suits from being brought or continued against the firearms industry. If passed by the House and signed by the President, this legislation would protect the manufacturers, distributors, dealers, and importers of firearms or ammunition from paying damages resulting from the misuse of their products by others. Ryme Katkhouda of the dcradiocoop.org reports on efforts mobilizing to still fight this “Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms”, challenging its constitutionality.

Czechs in Dublin to protest against police attacks

Ireland, 03.08.2005 10:13

Call for support in Ireland A 'Freetekno' Party was stopped during the weekend by a series brutal and irrational actions of the Czech Police. Around 6000 people were attacked by the riot cops while having a party. The Highway was blocked and people entering the Czech Republic were turned away at the border, discriminated against on the basis of their looks. The party was legal action with approval of the property owner. Police actions were convicted by many mainmedia journalists, inhabitans of the nearest villages, human rights organisations, politicians and even by the president of Czech Republic. At least one person has been reported killed during the stamping out of the 'CzechTech' party. In video footage the police can be seen arresting party goers and brandishing a gun while attempting to prevent these arrests being filmed - on land that was legally rented by the party organisers. There are reports of heavy use of CS Gas and photographs of watercanon and large numbers of riot police being deployed. It is reported that the person who died at the music festival which has been running for twelve years had been blinded by CS gas and fell in front of a riot van. The Czech Prime minister has reacted strongly stating that " These are no dancing children. .......... This core is build from people with dangerous anarchist's thrives and they are internationally connected.......... and hour after hour thousands come and the police forces cannot stop them." The Intenational Indymedia Network has reported that a number of demonstrations in Prague against the police action have taken place - with 5,000 people attending last Saturday, 31st and calling for the resignation of the Czech Minister for Justice, Frantisek Bublan - a call supported by the Czech league for Human Rights. A demonstration is to take place in Dublin at 5.30pm on Wednesday 3rd August while the Czech Prime minister has decided to change the law so that "this will not happen again" - the law of assembly that is.

11 Year-old Latina Criminalized for Responding to Attack by Boys

San Francisco Bay Area, 03.08.2005 01:43

Maribel Cuevas, a small 11-year old girl in Fresno who speaks mostly spanish, was being harrassed by neighborhood boys who threw water balloons and rocks at her in late April. She grew frustrated and attempted to scare the boys by acting like she was going to throw a rock at the boys, when the rock slipped. One of the boys, 9 year-old Elijah Vang, needed stitches as a result of being hit by the rock. A neighbor called 911, but before 3 police cars and a helicopter had arrived, Maribel had already ran over hysterically crying in an attempt to apologize to the boy's family. The Fresno police, who only spoke English, attempted to put Maribel in handcuffs and ended up throwing her to the ground and putting their knee in her back after she struggled in confusion and fear. She was incarcerated in juvenile hall for five days, after cops told an eyewitness and Maribel that she would be out of jail in 2 hours; and was made to wear an ankle monitoring bracelet for a month.

Elijah Vang and his family have reportedly moved out of the neighborhood. The boy admitted to officers that he started the fight and was quickly released from the hospital after getting his head stitched up. The boy's family stated they did not want to press charges. Regardless, 11-year-old Maribel is now being charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon, and her trial will begin on August 3rd. Her lawyer has accused the police of criminalizing childhood behavior. Women's rights activists are encouraging people to write to the District Attorney, Elizabeth A. Egan, and ask her to drop the charges against Maribel. Contact info for local officials

Driving in the United States: 42,636 dead this year!Wow! Is that figure from war all over the world? Nope. That is just deaths from vehicles on American roads this past year. The article actually sounds upbeat that the figure went down from last year. Hooray! It just disgusts me to no end that we allow our roads to run red with the blood of our fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters and children. And somehow this is acceptable to us as a society? It's like that law that just passed that allowing gun dealers to sell guns in an irresponsible manner and we can't sue the gun makers for their negligence. Man this country has gone beyond wacko! I'm looking into escaping into Canada. Is that tunnel still open?Good luck everyone! You'll need it. read more | add comment

Alamedans Organize to Stop Megaplex in Their City

San Francisco Bay Area, 02.08.2005 20:13

A protest was held in Alameda on Saturday July 23rd to say "NO!" to the idea of building a megaplex on the island. The city has a plan to build a seven-screen cinema and a six-story parking structure next door to the historic Alameda Theater. The issue continues to be debated at the Alameda City Council. The protest, outside of the theater on Central Avenue, included balloons on long strings to illustrate how high the proposed building would be, dogs wearing signs, and people giving out water and flyers about the megaplex. A report from the protest said, "It's nice to be a part of a genuine effort by a whole community, people of all ages and backgrounds." Opponents of the megaplex say that the new theater is not what people wanted, because it is not a restoration of an historic theater, but rather construction of a new one. Stop the Megaplex wants attractive movie theatres that fit with the small-town character of Alameda. The group says that it would be a bad deal for Alameda taxpayers, and would create a parking and traffic nightmare.

A Stop the Megaplex meeting will be held on Thursday, August 4th, at 7:30 pm at The Garden Room behind the Home of Truth, 1300 Grand Avenue, at the corner of Alameda Avenue. This meeting will include an update on the latest developments, set a strategy for the City Council meeting that will take place at 7:30pm on August 16th, and answer as many questions as possible. Plans will also be made for a phone calling campaign prior to the 16th.
