Battle of the Corp-Bots!--Kerry (&amp; Bush's) Conservative Funders

Boston, 27.07.2004 17:47

Cover Story from the First issue of our Newspaper, "The Boston Independent", now available all over town. (check your local bettega, cafe, laundromat, bar, etc) Most of the major contributors to John Kerry’s presidential campaign are corporations or employees of corporations that have ties to a network of organizations dedicated to moving the Democratic Party to the right. These organizations, which include the Democratic Leadership Council, the New Democrat Network, and the Progressive Policy Institute, are dedicated to pursuing a policy agenda that includes support for high levels of military spending and an aggressive role for the U.S. military around the world. Kerry has a history of political links to these organizations as well, and though he has been using progressive rhetoric during his campaign, the details and nuances of his positions indicate that Kerry is still dedicated to pursuing their conservative agenda.

Pataki Cuts Benefits for Elderly and Disabled

Hudson Mohawk, 27.07.2004 16:10

Anti-poverty groups today criticized Governor Pataki for implementing without legislative approval a controversial cut in welfare benefits for households with an individual who receives SSI benefits. When the Governor released his proposed budget in January, he included a proposal to reduce benefits for elderly and disabled individuals on SSI and welfare by an average of $90 a month. However, since this was an administrative change, he didn’t need legislative approval. With the legislature failing to pass a budget and then departing for summer vacation, the state Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance decided to go ahead and unilaterally slash benefits.

Bush and Kerry to Visit Grand Rapids; Protests Planned

Michigan, 27.07.2004 14:22

In the next week, both President George W. Bush and Democratic candidate John Kerry will visit Grand Rapids. Bush will return to Grand Rapids on Friday July 30, the first time he has visited since he was greeted by protests in January of 2003. While full details have not been announced, Bush is tentatively scheduled to speak in downtown Grand Rapids at an "outdoor event" on the Grand Rapids Community College campus. Kerry will be in town on Monday August 2, although no specifics have been announced.

We urge individuals and groups to begin planning protests and actions in response to the visits. In order to facilitate this process, there will be a planning meeting on Tuesday July 27 at 7:00pm in Ah Nab-Awen Park. Ah Nab-Awen Park is located in front of the Gerald R. Ford Museum in downtown Grand Rapids (map).

If you would like to help advertise the protests, flyers are available for printing in full-sheet and half-sheet sizes.

Road to Biscuit Salvage Logging Now Blocked

Rogue Valley, 27.07.2004 02:58

Using an intricate web of ropes and clips, a young woman is putting her body in the way of logging ancient forests in the Biscuit burn. She is suspended on a platform 75 feet above US Forest Service road 2308-150 to stop the logging of the Indi timber sale.

The Indi timber sale area in Curry County, is a healthy ancient forest inside the Biscuit fire perimeter. The sale include 5' diameter green trees and 7' diameter snags. Many units include more green than burned trees, despite a promise by the US Forest Service that only dead trees would be salvaged. Where burned, conifer seedlings are now in their third year of natural recovery.



Undaunted, SONA Protesters Drive the Point Home

www.indymedia.org, 27.07.2004 02:33

More than 2,000 rallyists braved heat this morning and, in the afternoon, raging rain to protest President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s State of the Nation Address (SONA).

For the protesters, Arroyo’s fourth SONA (her first as elected president since she first assumed the presidency as the constitutional successor of an ousted president) is nothing but a big mass of recycled lies. They raised their eyebrows at the theme of this year’s SONA, which is that of putting the people first. And for good reason.

The Out with Transgenentics Platform in Direct Action!

The Platform Out with Transgenetics! Called on collectives and individuals to cut an experiment of genetically modified wheat at Grimonells (Lleida) last July 3. This experiment forms part of SUSTAIN, a project financed priniciply by the EU and in which also participate IRTA (the Institute of Technologica and Agroalimentary Research of the Generalitat) and the University of Barcelona and other French and English investigative entities.

UIT this Direct Action, , the Platform denounces that transgenetic agriculture represents the ultimate and most nefarious proposal of the large corporations of agricultural supplies who plan an extraordinarily harmful production model, with the support of public bodies, and in the meantime is denying civil society information on their current activities.

This action, which forms part of many others which are being carried out all over the planet, has suceeded en ensuring that Catalonia shall continue to be a declared zone free of transgenetics..

Complete recap of Monday's March

Boston, 26.07.2004 22:27

A detailed recount of Monday's Black Tea Society march for civil liberties and against police brutality. About 400 people marched from the Boston Common towards the Fleet Center, site of the Democratic National Convention. The corporate media was swarming everywhere. The police were surprisingly restrained, given how they been behaving lately, such as in Miami and Georgia. The end of the march was disorganized, since there was no clear plan about what to do when we reached the protest pen.
