Rolls Royce Strike Begins

Bristol, 24.08.2005 10:07

Solidarity expressed by workers across region and UK Solidarity expressed by workers across region and UK worker writes; 96 Workers from Rolls Royce’s engine test facility at Patchwood, Bristol went on idefinite official stike today. They are supporting sacked Amicus Trades Union official Jerry Hicks. This strike could mark a reversal by workers and Unions of 25 years worth of defeats under new-liberalim. The factory's Managing Director said that he would not be re-instated. This is in spite of an unemployment tribunal provisionally finding that he has probably been dismissed “on trade union grounds“; management claimed it was it was for several other reasons including misconduct and organising unlawful industrial action. This action marks a step change in workers reaction in Britain to repression of their trade Unions and its officials, and the workers themselves, by both conservative and New Labour governments over the last 25 years. This strike could trigger a wider scale fight-back by Unions and workers against deteriorated employment terms and conditions, unscrupulous employers and anti-trade union governments. Trade Unions in Britain have been prevented from taking action to support their members by increasing more repressive anti-trade union laws. No only has there been a change in mood of the workers in which enough really has become enough, but they are working in an more locally autonomous way that is a tendency towards syndicalism.

A &quot;Movement Across All Borders&quot; To Converge on September 16th

San Francisco Bay Area, 24.08.2005 07:37

Beginning on September 16th, people will converge on the San Diego/Tijuana region and the Mexicali/Calexico region of the Mexico/US border "to stop the vigilante operation being planned there by the Friends of the Border Patrol." The call to action encourages people who cannot make it to the border to organize solidarity actions in their home towns, rejecting "the Minutemen, Borders and the racist ideologies that Borders are built on." Read more

Organizers' goal for September 16th-18th is to take action and directly shut down the Minutemen operations. The o.r.g.a.n.i.c. Collective, Anarchist Action San Francisco, and the San Francisco Bay Area Anti-Minutemen Coalition are seeking additional endorsers to the call to action.

Taser, Dogs, and Chemical Weapons Used on Protesters

San Francisco Bay Area, 23.08.2005 23:37

On Saturday, August 21st in Oakland, a neighborhood of Pittsburgh, PA, a protest was held in front of an Army Recruiting Center. Pittsburgh Police and University of Pittsburgh Police fought with protesters on the sidewalk. It was the second time in a month that protests had shut down the main recruitment station in Pittsburgh. At least six people were arrested; police fired tasers and other weapons at the crowd, including restrained arrestees and bystanders.

During the rally at the station, a freelance Fox News cameraman who was aggressively filming demonstrators' faces was told to leave and started a minor confrontation with protestors. He returned with police officers, who began chasing any masked protestors they could find. They arrested several people and fired weapons at the crowd. Several people were hit with tasers and chemical weapons. Video cameras captured tasers being fired at people who had already been subdued and restrained by police officers.

Police later used dogs to chase away protestors on the sidewalk, and one woman was bitten in the behind by one of the canine officers. After she told police that she wanted to file a complaint, she was told the police would "take her information," but instead she was arrested.

Gale Norton Touts Recreation Fees

Portland, 23.08.2005 16:37

In allegiance to the American Recreation Council (ARC), headed by Disney, RV manufacturers, and makers of off-road motorized vehicles, Secretary of Interior Gale Norton has started a media campaign to quell the strong, prevailing opposition to the charging of fees for individual access to quiet, harmless recreation on public lands. With the overarching goal of commercializing and privatizing our public lands, Norton/ARC have already succeeded in criminalizing non fee-paying with penalties of up to 6 months in jail and $10,000 fines. Her first example of the wonders of charging these fees is in the Mount Hood National Forest, where timber companies meanwhile get paid millions to clearcut sensitive ecosystems. A letter-writing campaign can subvert Norton's PR campaign and put her on the offensive rather than being able to shape the media's representations of the issue.

Victory for animal rights campaigners

United Kingdom, 23.08.2005 15:07

The owners of Darley Oaks Farm, also known as 'Newchurch Guinea Pig Farm', have announced in a statement that they will shut down its guinea pig breeding operations by the end of the year. The farm in Staffordshire, near Burton upon Trent has been breeding guinea pigs for animal experiments for the last 40 years. Campaign groups like 'Save Newchurch Guinea Pigs' have been taking action against the company for years, trying to get them 'shut down'.

In March, protesters received an injunction meaning they were not allowed to enter a designated area surrounding the farm.

A Revolution in the Pacific?

Aotearoa, 23.08.2005 08:08

The Public Service Association of Tonga is now in the 5th week of their strike. 3000 teachers and other public servants demand pay increases of up to 80%! The dispute is unlikely to be resolved soon with both sides negotiating at a two steps forward and four steps backward speed. [ Report ] One of the King’s homes in Tonga, Uoleva, was destroyed in a fire early yesterday morning. No one was hurt in the blaze. The fire department is still trying to determine the cause of the fire. [ Report ] Solidarity protests were held over the last few days at the King’s residence in Auckland. [ Report ] King Taufa'ahau Tupou IV is currently in Auckland to attend the engagement party of his granddaughter. Several people were arrested last night and charged with disorderly behaviour when they tried to break through a police line. A rock was thrown at the house, breaking a window. The New Zealand Council of Trade Unions put out a media release stating that “Unions in New Zealand and around the Pacific [are] concerned for their fellow workers in Tonga”. Unions from New Zealand have sent financial support to Tonga for the striking workers and their families. [ Media Release ]

Rolls Royce Dispute

Bristol, 23.08.2005 04:37

ROLLS ROYCE ACCUSED OF VICTIMISING TRADE UNION REPRESENTATIVE martin writes: The entire manual workforce at Rolls Royce’s Patchway site in Bristol walked out on Thursday, 21 July following the sacking of their deputy plant convenor, Jerry Hicks. They took the decision to down tools there and then by a unanimous show of hands at a mass meeting held on the factory gates. With only a handful of votes against the mass meeting decided to put maximum pressure on the aerospace multinational by voting to "stay out for as long as it takes" to win reinstatement. On Thursday afternoon an emergency meeting of stewards and convenors from all five of Rolls Royce’s sites in Britain took place in Bristol, near the Patchway plant...."If management get away with sacking Jerry, it will be open season on every steward across Rolls Royce," says John Locke, a test area steward in Bristol....And it won’t just be Rolls. Other employers, especially in engineering, will draw the conclusion that they can victimise union reps and get away with it. We are asking for the fullest possible support throughout our union, Amicus, and throughout the whole trade union movement....This is a battle we cannot afford to lose."

City heads for holy show-down on the 8th City heads for holy show-down on the 8th Some are wondering if this is for real, but Dan Greenwood writes; The govts proposed incitment to religious hatred bill will recognise satanism and occult beliefs as equal to christianity, and make it illegal to expose the evils of satanism. This is an affront to the christian values of this country, and all god fearing people. To mark our resistance to this bill, and our belief in the power of god to transform lives, we will be holding a protest and prayer vigil outside The Printers Devil pub, Broad Plain , Bristol...Every monday pagans and satanists meet at this public house for a moot (meeting) to plan rituals, and promote black magic. Their souls can be saved, and the taint of satan driven from this city. Full article | A vigil for hope | Bristol Open Circle Moot |

Older people are getting on-line Older people are getting on-line Bristol Wireless posted some news written by Ronnie Corbett, the Warden at Princess Royal Gardens; Why give computers to the elderly and what good could it do? There are elderly folk or senior citizens who are energetic and out going normally, who through sheer lonliness have become depressed, many become depressed just by moving house. They move to a smaller flat in sheltered housing having to lose furniture that will not fit, friends and neighbours become distant, even their Doctor is changed because of boundary changes. The loving daughter or son can no longer pop in as frequently as they used to. The frustrations and the stress of moving are expressed in several ways, constant crying, anger, inability to eat, sickness, diarhea, sleeping, body clock changes, a shock to the system. The move was supposed to make them feel safe and better off. The above is only a short precis of what can happen to our senior citizens. The introduction of computers to the senior citizens bring crys of dissent 'What do we want they for' or 'I can't use them things not at my age' and yet show them how to start the thing and away they go...

Elderly ad disabled people describe the effects of the Governments new F.A.C.S (Fair Access to Care) scheme is having on their lives. The Lockleaze Day Centre users have been protesting in Bristol for months, successfully highlighting the issue of F.A.C.S. One of their actions included an occupation of the regional Labour Headquarters on the day Tony Blair announced the general election. An individual from the Campaign to Save Daycare in Bristol says; "Bristol City Council overspent its budget by 11 million pounds last year, and as a result, F.A.C.S has meant the council has closed many Day Centres, cut places at the remaining day centres, denied the most vulnerable crucial care and services, and axed Meals on Wheels".

Interesting to note the swp'ers supporting the baby killers... so they are against the Iraq war but supporters of the arms traders who make it possible. Mike responds: Surely this is all the more reason to support a worker in a fight against the management. who knows, maybe a bit more confidence and in time the workers will go on strike to stop production for such wars ...

In Memory of Monica Sjoo

Bristol, 23.08.2005 04:37

Internationally renowned Feminist, Artist and Activist Monica Sjoo died on 8th August 2005 Internationally renowned Feminist, Artist and Activist Monica Sjoo died on 8th August 2005 Starhawk writes: Monica Sjoo is dead. She died on Monday the 8th of August, of cancer, surrounded by her loving friends. Monica was an artist, a writer, one of the early, powerful visionaries of the women's spirituality movement. Her book, The Great Cosmic Mother, brought the hidden history of the Goddess back alive, and her paintings transformed ancient images and symbols into contemporary icons of female power. I first met Monica in 1985, on a walk with women activists from the Greenham Common Peace Camp, that began in Avebury on Beltaine and crossed the military firing ranges of Salisbury Plain to celebrate a wild, powerful, illicit ritual at Stonehenge during a lunar eclipse. Monica was strong, blunt, sometimes painfully honest, gruff, brilliant and courageous. She faced huge losses in her own life with courage and creativity, and wrote with truthful self-revelation of her own griefs and disappointments. She continued to paint, write and create.From one of Monica's poems; Everything has turned to dust for me / in spite of the beauty of this living Earth. / Oh, how I wish for you that you are now existing / in a state of pure bliss and that you understand / so much more now than we can ever imagine / weighted as we are here by the dullness and cruelties / of Patriarchal non-realities.

Running On Empty

Bristol, 23.08.2005 04:37

Climate Change and Transport in the South West Climate Change and Transport in the South West Crash writes; While August inevitably means gridlock on the motorways, cycling around the city I can’t help notice that traffic within Bristol itself seems relatively quiet as many holidaymakers are away. September, with the return of schools, inevitably means a return to horrendous congestion – officially the worst in the country, costing £1million a week and a major source of climate change emissions. The new Transport Plan recently prepared by local councils in the former Avon area offered a one-off opportunity to do something about it. Certainly it is not short of further stark evidence of the dire state of Bristol's traffic: 100,000 people in the area are living in Air Quality Management Areas – where the level of pollutants such as carbon monoxide (causes blood poisoning and impairs brain function), nitrogen dioxide (causes lung disease and cancer) and particulates (causes asthma and cancer) are dangerously high. Sixty children are being killed or seriously injured in road accidents in Bristol every year. Yet anyone who believes the plan will provide Bristol with the "sustainable transport system" it promises is sadly mistaken: by 2011 it forecasts that there will be up to 13% more traffic in Greater Bristol by 2011, or over 60,000 extra vehicles, travelling the equivalent distance of a return trip to the moon three times a day.

Bristol NUJ Takes on Northcliffe

Bristol, 23.08.2005 04:37

A battle for workers rights and local journalism! A battle for workers rights and local journalism! IMCVOLs write; On Tuesday lunchtime (16th August 2005) there were lots of people clustered around the Evening Post building in Bristol – these were workers and National Union of Journalists members – there to protest at the cuts that the Evening Post owner, Northcliffe (owned by Daily Mail and General Trust PLC – the group also owns Venue, Bristol Observer, thisisbristol.com, Western Daily Press, Metro and much more!) Despite Northcliffe making £100 Million profits and upping its directors pay by 48%, they still want more and so have implemented a neo-Labour sounding scheme called Aim Higher to make an additional £25 million by cutting jobs and journalism. “The Mail on Sunday called Andy Gilchrist, the fire union leader, a "fat cat" for his £82,000 salary. The Mail on Sunday's editor-in-chief, Paul Dacre, receives a basic yearly salary of £690,000. Who's fat?” wrote Paul Foot in the The Guardian – indeed! It is of note that this attack on local media won’t get good coverage in the commercial press in Bristol – because the people with the scissors own all the press!

New protests as bulldozers threaten ancient Sussex woodland

United Kingdom, 23.08.2005 02:07

MAJOR conflict is fast approaching in a fraught battle to save a piece of ancient woodland in West Sussex from a massive housebuilding and road widening scheme.



The planning application to build 875 homes and fell 275 trees at Titnore Lane, West Durrington, was approved by Tory-run Worthing Borough Council at a meeting on June 10, at which police were called to evict protesters from the stage. And with the Government Office for the South East announcing on August 1 that there would be no public enquiry, battle lines are now being formed for a new stage in the long-running conflict.

To kick this off, an outdoor public meeting is being staged close to Titnore Lane on Sunday September 4. This is at 2pm in Northbrook Park, between Titnore Lane and Romany Road. It is a short walk from Goring railway station on the main South Coast line between Brighton and Portsmouth.



US Soldiers Brutally Shut Down Rave in Utah

Portland, 23.08.2005 00:37

US Soldiers, local sheriffs and SWAT officers violently shut down a legal, permitted, outdoor electronic music event dubbed "Versus II" taking place the evening of Saturday, August 20th in the Diamond Fork area of Spanish Fork Canyon in Utah County.

Here are some short excerpts from firsthand accounts:

"Out of nowhere huge semis filled with national guard, swat, and the police rolled up. Soldiers came out of the bushes and rushed down to the party. Carrying M-16s, Ak-47s, nightsticks, and tazers."

"The police were rounding up the staff of the party and the main promoter went up to them with the permit for the show and said "here, I have the permit." The police then said, "no you don't" and ripped the permit out of his hand. Then, they put an assault rifle to his forehead and said "get the fuck out of here right now."

Every day 90-ton train cars filled with deadly chlorine gas and other hazardous materials roll though our cities over unprotected and unguarded rails with no warning to our communities. The potential death toll from an accident or attack is staggering: It is estimated that an assault on a chlorine tanker could create a toxic cloud extending 14 miles, which could kill tens of thousands of people in urban Washington, DC.
