Bay Area Health Workers Join Common Ground Clinic in New Orleans

San Francisco Bay Area, 15.09.2005 20:37

A bay area activist relief caravan to Louisiana has been in New Orleans since Sept. 12th. The caravan includes physicians, EMTs, and body workers who have teamed up with DC's Mayday Medical Collective to provide health services in solidarity with the residents of the Algiers neighborhood, as part of the Common Ground Wellness Center. A brand new community radio station called "The Battle for Algiers" is on the air at 94.5 FM. Bay Area Radical Health Collective (BARHC) medics are treating about 50 people per day, many with chronic conditions like high blood pressure and diabetes. Full story | New Orleans Indymedia

Common Ground Wellness Center: Solidarity not Charity

Portland, 15.09.2005 19:38

On September 14, I visited the Common Ground Wellness Center at 1401 Teche St. in Algiers, New Orleans and had the opportunity to speak with Noah, a volunteer medic from Providence, Rhode Island. [ audio interview: download mp3 | download torrent ]

Noah discusses the reasons for medical volunteers coming to New

Orleans and how they were able to mobilize, the goods and services provided at the clinic, the background of the volunteers, the response of the military to the clinic, the truth about large charity organizations, the role of anarchism in medical aid and how community members feel about the medical clinic and volunteers.

Noah also expresses his anger at the humanitarian crisis caused by George Bush, Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice and the directors of FEMA and the Armed Services who are planing to turn New Orleans into a rich white disneyland on the Mississippi River.

Ticketmaster To Take Over All Wilderness Cabin, Campsites, &amp; Lookout Tower Rentals

Portland, 15.09.2005 17:37

InterActiveCorp--aka Ticketmaster, Ask Jeeves, Hotels.com, Match.com and ReserveAmerica--looks poised to take over all reservations and rentals of all wilderness cabins, campsites, and lookout towers. Get ready to shell out to them next time you want to take a hike on one of the few trails through lands not entirely ravaged by clearcuts.

"A plan to privatize some aspects of public lands management was lauded by some, but Silver says those early supporters never envisioned what he saw clearly - the eventual "Disneyfication" of the forest. His critics have dismissed his caution as nonsensical, but Silver might be more prescient than even he suspected...." ~The Missoulian Independent

Katrina's Latest Victim: Frances Newton RIP

Portland, 15.09.2005 17:37

A media awash in Katrina stories had no time for a poor black woman being killed by the state in Texas after being railroaded onto death row for a crime she probably never committed.

Those who are looking for an example of an innocent person's being executed by the state may well find it in the case of this unfortunate woman, who almost certainly was not guilty of killing her husband and child as charged by the state of Texas.



No More Deaths On Our Streets

The recent tragic deaths of two ‘homeless’ people in Dublin highlights the Governments acute inadequacies in serving its citizens. On a weekly basis people die needlessly on Irish streets due to the acute lack of housing and lack of services to those in need. In response to these recent deaths Street Seen who publish an Irish Anti-Poverty newsaper are calling on people to protest in Dublin on Saturday 17th September saying clearly enough is enough: No More Deaths On Our Streets. Numbers of people sleeping rough in Dublin city centre remain at record high levels, according to a new survey conducted by homeless organisations. Two hundred and thirty seven (237) people sleep rough in Dublin on any given night. These people are vulnerable to changes in the weather, violence, abuse and sexual exploitation. The survey co-ordinated by the Homeless Agency was carried out by Focus Ireland, Dublin Simon Community, Merchant’s Quay Ireland along with Dublin City Council and other homeless services It was only with the introduction of the Housing Act in 1988 that any kind of national assessments of homelessness by Local Authorities were carried out. Although the early assessments were deeply flawed the most recent one (2002) found that a record 5,581 people were homeless throughout the state (according to the Housing Act definition). The majority of these were in Dublin. The Homeless Agency also co-ordinated a separate assessment for Dublin. This counted 2,920 homeless people in Dublin in 2002. There are currently 48,413 households on the housing waiting lists nationally and 5,581 people who are homeless.

The vast majority of these live in emergency hostels and B&B accommodation on a night-by-night basis Not only has the number of homeless households increased substantially over the years but the crisis in social/public housing has also deepened. The slow-down in the construction of social housing by the local authorities in the late 1980s and early 1990s, the rise in the cost of renting private accommodation and the increasing cost of purchasing a property have lead to an increased demand for social housing. Housing charity Threshold recently called on the Government to prevent the creation of modern-day slums by radically improving living conditions in private rental accommodation. Threshold in its 2004 Annual Report, showed the number of calls from people living in unfit accommodation had risen by more than a third last year. Conditions people were reporting included problems with hot and cold running water, mould growing on walls, vermin infestations and living in windowless rooms, Threshold claimed local authorities were failing in their duty to inspect privately-rented accommodation, with only 7,232 of an estimated 150,000 dwellings checked by inspectors. According to the report, almost 30% of inspected properties were found to be falling below minimum standards. Homelessness means more than just sleeping rough. If you are living in Ireland in a hostel or bed and breakfast or staying temporarily with friends because you have nowhere else to go, you are homeless. Street Seen is calling on all those individuals, groups and organisations who wish to see the end of avoidable deaths on Irish Streets and homelessness to support this demonstration as a matter of urgency.

IWU International Homeless Forum http://www.forums.homeless.org.au/ Residents Against Racism Merchants Quay Ireland: The Changing Nature of Homelessness in Ireland http://www.mqi.ie/homeless_awareness1.htm How Many People are Homeless? The Department of the Environment estimated that 5,581 individuals were homeless in Ireland during one week in March 2002. This compares to 2,501 homeless during the same period in 1996. 4,060 of these were in Dublin, where 723 had been homeless for more than three years. 312 of those surveyed in Dublin said they were sleeping rough with the remainder staying in emergency or insecure accommodation. Why are so many homeless? Housing has become increasingly unaffordable - house prices and rent increased substantially between 1996 and 2003. The Governments plan to deny rent subsidy to persons for the first six months renting will lead to a further increase in homelessness Local authority housing used to provide a safety net that prevented poor people from becoming homeless. In 2002 there were a total of 102,000 local authority houses in Ireland. There were 48,000 households on the waiting lists for such housing. A number of people who used to reside in psychiatric hospitals or other institutions become homeless on discharge. Increased incidence of family breakdown also has an impact on levels of homelessness. Between 18 and 40% of homeless people say this was a cause of their homelessness Who becomes homeless? In Dublin last year 2,920 adults were homeless and 1,140 children. The numbers of families with children who are homeless had increased to 25% of all homeless households identified. Lone parents account for two-thirds of households with children. 94% of lone parents are women. The number of children who were homeless has increased by almost 15% to 1,140. [1] In a 1998 study Cleary & Prizeman found that 58% had become homeless by the age of 20 and 20% by the age of 16. [2] What problems do homeless people have? The average age of death of those recoded as homeless on coroners reports varies between 42 and 53 years. [3] Between 25% and 50% of people who are homeless experience mental health problems. [4][5][6] Incidence of drug taking among homeless people in Dublin is high with surveys showing figures for drug dependency ranging from 25% to 45%. [7] Estimates suggest that between 29% and 50% of people who are homeless are drinking above safe levels/recommended levels. [8][9] Sources 1. Counted In as cited above 2. Cleary, A & G.

Feeney as cited above Focus Ireland: Causes Of Homelessness http://www.focusireland.ie/htm/housing_homelessness/facts_figures/causes.htm People usually become homeless for a number of complex reasons including poverty and the lack of affordable, secure and appropriate long-term housing, as well as complex life circumstances. Typical difficulties that often trigger periods of homelessness include the following: Unemployment: Economic difficulties including job loss can lead to homelessness as families and/or single adults can no longer meet mortgage or rent payments. Drug and/or alcohol misuse: Substance misuse can lead to homelessness as family relationships breakdown or people lose their homes due to their addiction. Eviction from and/or lack of low rent housing: Research by Focus Ireland in 2000 found that 29 per cent of B&B users had been evicted or threatened with eviction from either local authority or private rented accommodation or were forced to leave their last place of accommodation due to overcrowding. Relationship breakdown: This has proven to be a significant trigger leading to homelessness. Various studies have shown that anywhere between 18 and 40 per cent of homeless households report relationship breakdown as a primary cause of their homelessness. Leaving state care: Leaving state care has proven to be a significant pathway into homelessness as young people reach age 18 and are no longer the responsibility of the state. Focus Ireland research into the circumstances of a group of young people leaving three different types of state care found that 66 per cent of them experienced homelessness within two years of leaving the care environment. Leaving prison: Leaving prison has proven to be a significant pathway into homeless in many countries as relationships may have broken down and accommodation may be lost during the periods of imprisonment. Episodes of mental illness: Inappropriate release from hospitals, inappropriate long-term accommodation options, and lack of access to appropriate medical and therapeutic services all contribute to becoming, and remaining, homeless if affected by mental ill-health. Being homeless as a child: Children of homeless families often become homeless as adults as a recent Focus Ireland study has shown. Twenty-five percent of homeless adults participating in the pilot study had experienced homelessness as children.

3 days of living dead...

Athens, 15.09.2005 15:37

The fascist gang of "chrissi avghi" (golden dawn) and european nazis are organising a camp in greece, from 16 to 18 of September, in order to state their opposition to the admission of the Turkey in the EU.

They were initially planning to set it up at Meligalas and afterwards at Kaiafas. In both areas, the local society rose in protest, so they turned to a common campsite in Stylida, where they met the last three years. Given the reactions, they are searching for a place once again. Some information reports a campsite in Aghios Konstantinos, Fthiotida (165th km on the Athens-Thessaloniki highway). They insist that whenever their camping will be held, they will go to Meligalas, too.

The fascists move furtively, as they tend to. Since the "hide-and-seek" is still on, nothing is for sure. There will be continuous updates for the exact place of the fascist meeting...

Scheduled actions:

  • 15/9 Rally and press conference outside the "Interstation" camping area (busses departing from Athens)
  • 15/9 Music concert in Kalamata (20:30) - rally in Patra (Olgas sq. 19:00)
  • 16/9 All-day rally and siege to the fascist camp, in case it is not prevented. (Busses from Athens 1 | 2 | and Thessaloniki | 1 | 2)|
  • 17/9 rally in Kalamata (13.30)

On Monday there was a press conference for the issue.

Also; On Tuesday 13/9 the chrissi avghi member "Periandros" (Antonis Androutsopoulos) "surrendered". He was the one who, being a chief of chrissi avghi, led uncountable attacks against immigrants and politically active young people. He had been convicted of having attacked D. Koussouris, carrying a sentence of 4 years in jail, while there is a standby accuse for assassination effort. He was a fugitive for 7 whole years!!! He has been transferred to Amfissa prison, where is enjoying special imprisonment conditions.

Bristol in Solidarity with Venezuela

Bristol, 15.09.2005 11:07

During 48 hours in April 2002 a right wing coup temporarily unseated the democratically elected President and government of Hugo Chavez. Elected in 1999, the Chavez adminstration promised redistributonist policies paid for by the countries oil wealth. Venezuela also supplies the U.S.A with around one sixth of it's oil supplies, and evidence continues to emerge of the Bush administrations involvement in the failed coup of 2002. Karen Bell, from Bristol, is currently in Venezuela, and reports on some of the current political and social conditions and aspects of life in Venezuela resulting from the Chavez reforms, and since the aborted coup attempt.Karen Bell writes: Hi amigos, sorry I have not been in contact before. I have been very busy and it has been a facinating, and sometimes confusing time. Venezuela is extremely beautiful, the most beautiful country I have ever been to I think. I am sending you some notes based on a three day visit to Barinas, the state that Chavez comes from. I went with two Australians and I was doing the translating while they wrote these notes. It gives you an idea of what I have been up to and what the situation is like. I later returned to stay with the same family in Barinas but that is another story...Look forward to seeing you all soon, back on the 21st September. I will be organising a meeting to help launch a Bristol Solidarity with Venezuela group sometime in early November. Hope those of you in Bristol will be able to come.Lots of love, Karen.

Difficulties in Rescue of People and Animals in Gulf Coast Region

San Francisco Bay Area, 15.09.2005 08:07

September 14th: More than two weeks have passed since Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast, and hundreds of dehydrated and starving animals reportedly wait on rooftops, in attics, on the streets and in hiding-- alone and abandoned. The logistical and moral issues related to the evacuation and rescue of people and their companion animals have created a nightmare in the areas hit by Hurricane Katrina. It took over a week for the corporate media to begin reporting on the fate of animals in the Katrina disaster. While animal welfare organizations and volunteers have undertaken animal rescue, these workers have faced numerous obstacles from the National Guard, FEMA and other agencies. These include being denied entry into certain areas, and not being allowed to break into houses despite written requests from pet owners to rescue the animals trapped inside.

Many people have been separated from their companion animals, and others have refused to leave their homes because they are not ensured security for the animals. Many people who were rescued from floodwaters were forced to leave behind their beloved animal companions. Many have heard the story of the dog "Snowball", taken by a police officer from the arms of a little boy who was waiting for a bus to the Houston Astrodome. The boy cried until he vomited. A man at the Superdome reported being forced to leave his cat, understanding that he would be arrested if he did not. Many poor pet owners were unable to evacuate the city prior to the hurricane. After people have refused to leave their animals behind, they have faced armed police and threats of arrest under mandatory evacuation order.

In some areas, the army has reportedly begun to assist with rescue efforts but it is unclear as to whether this is policy or if this is a voluntary effort of a small number of soldiers. Many National Guard soldiers have been upset at the order to specifically not rescue animals. Other law enforcement has not been so kind, as a sheriff in the town of St. Bernard's Parish was caught on videotape shooting stranded dogs in the street.

Rescue efforts continue, and volunteers have been trying to keep animals alive until their owners are able to return or they can be rescued. They have reportedly been leaving food and water for animals in the street, and trying to leave food in as many houses as possible where animals have been witnessed or reported, to keep them alive. Animal advocates urge that people call people and agencies who could help to make animal rescue a priority. People in the Bay Area have been taking in animals from the Gulf Coast- some 550 rescued dogs began arriving in Marin County this week.

DSEi delegates told: &quot;Stick your bloody arms up your bum !&quot;

United Kingdom, 15.09.2005 01:07

Actions and protests for the second day of the DSEi Arms Fair included a Critical Mass bike ride, a mass action at Custom House Docklands Light Railway Station, and affinity group actions targetting the fair. The day also saw the commencement of the trial of some Corporate Pirates, following an action against Windrush Communications, promoters of the Iraq Procurement events.

During the day's actions many delegate's journeys in and out the arms fair have been disrupted, whilst major delays has been caused to transport into the area. After the day's protests at least 27 people have been reported arrested (we have 15 confirmed and named). Further affinity group actions are apparently planned for tomorrow,as well as a protest and critical mass during the arms dealer's gala dinner.

Homeland Security Signs Order to Finish Triple Fence and Bulldoze Endangered Species Preserve

San Diego, 15.09.2005 00:37

This fence will require bulldozing major portions of the Tijuana Estuary, including a preserve for endangered plant and animal species.

From NBCSanDiego.com: The Bush administration said Wednesday that it will fortify the westernmost stretch of the U.S.-Mexico border over the objections of environmentalists and California regulators, who feared the project would harm a refuge for endangered birds. [Full NBC Story | Other corporate reports]
Such a move was made possible by the REAL ID act, which contained a small section in it which allows the Department of Homeland Security to waive all laws when building fences along the border.

Wal-Mart, Corporate Citizen

Portland, 14.09.2005 23:37

Attention Please... Wal-Mart is coming. Their sights are set on Portland, and they want you to save money soon! Location scouts are considering sites in SE Portland, Beaverton, and Gresham, and your neighborhood may be the next place to save.

When Wal-Mart opens, they will contribute many things to our community. They will create jobs, pay taxes, provide affordable products to Portland, and maybe even build a traffic-light or sidewalk.

Wall Mart employs an army of handsome consultants and lobbyists to repeat these high points at every possible opportunity. Nobody can argue with the benefits of Wal-Mart, they really do all the things they say. Their colors are also red, white, and blue.

However, if you look just a little bit deeper?say, the last two paragraphs of most major media stories about Wal-Mart?the value of their community contribution vanishes. [ read more >> ]

Community Support in Algiers, New Orleans

Portland, 14.09.2005 23:37

On September 13, the Common Ground collective in Algiers, New Orleans began the day with a meeting to discuss everything from staying healthy to the difference between martial law and a state of emergency. A medic at the wellness center said that the best way to maintain to the health of the community is be sure that everyone washes their hands often and to not share plates and utensils. After the meeting, volunteers assembled personal hygiene kits and dropped them off at the Common Ground Wellness Center at 1401 Teche St. where hundreds of people from New Orleans have been treated and received supplies.

A little bit later in the day, Iasha, Errol and Christopher came by to see if they could have some bicycles. The folks from Austin who brought the bicycles were happy to set the three of them up with bicycles. Iasha, Errol and Christopher said that all their friends have left town and they are the only children left in the neighborhood.

Το τριήμερο των &quot;νεκροζώντανων - ζωντανών νεκρών - ζόμπι&quot;

Athens, 14.09.2005 22:07

Από τις 16 εώς τις 18 Σεπτεμβρίου η φασιστική συμμορία της "χρυσής αυγής" μαζί με ευρωπαίους ομοιδεατες της σχεδιάζουν κάμπινγκ, από όπου θα διακυρήξουν την αντίθεση τους στην είσοδο της Τουρκίας στην ΕΕ.

Αρχικά σχεδίαζαν να το πραγματοποιήσουν στον Μελιγαλά και μετά στο δάσος του Καϊάφα. Και στις δυο περιοχές, οι τοπικές κοινωνίες ξεσηκώθηκαν, οπότε προσανατολίστηκαν σε προσφιλές τους κάμπινγκ στη Στυλίδα, όπου μαζεύονται τα 3 τελευταία χρονιά. Υπό το βάρος των αντιδράσεων ψάχνουν και πάλι για χώρο. Οι τελευταίες πληροφορίες κάνουν λόγο για κάμπινγκ στον Αγ. Κωνσταντίνο Φθιώτιδας (165ο χιλιόμετρο Αθηνών-Θεσσαλονίκης). Επιμένουν πως όπου κι αν γίνει το κάμιπινγκ τους, θα πάνε στο μνημόσυνο στο Μελιγαλά.

Οι φασίστες κινούνται με συνομωτικούς τρόπους που γνωρίζουν καλα. Επειδή το κρυφτούλι συνεχίζεται, τίποτε δεν είναι σίγουρο. Θα υπάρξει συνεχής ενημέρωση, για τον τόπο της φασιστο-σύναξης...

Σειρά προγραμματισμένων εκδηλώσεων :

  • 15/9 συγκέντρωση και συνέντευξη τύπου έξω από το κάμπινγκ “interstation”
  • 15/9 στην Καλαματα συναυλία και στην Πάτρα πορεία
  • 16/9 ολοήμερη συγκέντρωση και περικύκλωση του κάμπινγκ σε περίπτωση που δεν αποτραπεί το κάμπινγκ λεωφορεία : *
  • 17/9 στην Καλαμάτα πορεία

Επίσης την Τρίτη 13/9 "παραδόθηκε" στις δικαστικές αρχές ο χρυσαυγίτης "Περίανδρος", (κατά κόσμον Αντώνης Ανδρουτσόπουλος) ο οποίος είχε πρωτοστατήσει σαν υπαρχηγός της Χρυσής Αυγής σε αμέτρητες επιθέσεις ενάντια σε μετανάστες και πολιτικοποιημένους νέους. Είχε καταδικαστεί ερήμην σε 4 χρόνια φυλακή για επίθεση στον σ. Κουσουρή. Διεύφευγε της σύλληψης για 7 ολόκληρα χρόνια!!! Μεταφέρθηκε στις φυλακές Άμφισσας, όπου απολαμβάνει ιδιαίτερες συνθήκες κράτησης.



Stop the Evidence!

San Francisco Bay Area, 14.09.2005 20:37

A long-running procedure by State Water Quality officials to address Pacific Lumber’s logging effects on whole watersheds was ground to a screeching halt late Tuesday, when a Superior Court Judge granted the timber corporation’s last-minute plea for a restraining order to stop a hearing that would take evidence of harm caused by logging. The Court’s intervention comes nearly two years after a decision by the Regional Water Board to draft permits called Watershed Wide Waste Discharge Requirements that would promote recovery of Freshwater Creek and Elk River - two North Coast drainages which are heavily clogged with Pacific Lumber’s logging-induced sediment. PL says the permits will cause them financial harm.

In court Tuesday, PL attorneys accused the water board of “parroting” local environmental and property rights groups, and threw out accusations of a conspiracy designed to “cripple” Pacific Lumber. Nick Stern, an attorney with the Attorney General’s office deflected the accusation, citing the State Water agency's April 27 report which shows that the timber giant’s precarious financial position “is the result of the risky business model that (Texas parent company) MAXXAM has chosen to follow.”

At dozens of meetings over the last eight years, watershed residents have expressed frustration at slow regulatory reaction to what they describe as on-going harm stemming from PL’s high logging rate, and say the permits are long over-due. Pacific Lumber’s claims in court that they are victims of unfair regulation added to that frustration. “Here is another cynical ploy by Maxxam to obstruct regulatory efforts to reign in the reckless overcutting that has been their standard practice since the hostile takeover of PL in 1985,” said Larry Evans, President of the Environmental Protection Information Center.

Equal marriage activists claim victory

Boston, 14.09.2005 14:07

Equal marriage proponents celebrated victory last night, one day before Massachusetts’ constitutional convention is to decide whether or not to put the issue of same-sex marriage before the voters as a ballot question. The consensus among the press, the activists, and many others is that it will not. A long line of players in what has become one of the largest and most powerful political groups in the state stood in front of the crowd giving congratulatory speeches and stern warnings. The event was billed as a candlelight vigil but many took the opportunity to celebrate and build up morale for future trials. Photos courtesy of Mainframe Photographics and are copyrighted
