Exit Only at the George R. Brown in Houston

Portland, 23.09.2005 12:37

On September 20, Vinny and I returned to the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston to find out what was happening with the Katrina survivors since the Convention Center was closing it's doors as a shelter. An "Exit Only" sign on the doors made it clear that Katrina survivors were no longer welcome at the Convention Center. According to Anna Holly, Onsite Public Information Officer, it was time to "get back to business, back to conventions."

Many people were able to secure housing, however that was not the case for everyone. Vinny spoke with several people that had been excluded from federal services and are not sure what they are going to do for a job and housing. [ read more ]

Struggling for a Home After Hurricane Katrina

On September 20, after Vinny and I visited the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, we headed over to the Reliant Arena to find out more information about Katrina survivors being transfered from the Arena to Fort Chaffee, a military base in Arkansas.

The mood was more tense that it had been in previous days. It seemed that most people were not sure what was going on. Hurricane Katrina has wrecked peoples homes and changed their lives forever. After trying to find family members and friends, the next step for Katrina survivors has been to try to find some form of housing. [ read more ]

Mayor Potter Responds to Citizen Inquiry on Tasering of 16 Year Old

Portland, 23.09.2005 10:38

This is a letter I received from Mayor Potter in response to my inquiry of what happened on Sept 8. Since I know very little about this incident, other than what I read on PIMC, I wanted to hear what others have to say in response, and perhaps let Mayor Potter let you know how you feel or what you think. I left out my name to protect my privacy on the web.

From Mayor Potter: I appreciate the time you took to write me regarding the incident on September 8. Anytime police officers are forced to use force as they perform their duties it is rightly a cause for concern for both the public and the Police Bureau. The Police Bureau carefully reviews uses of force from a number of perspectives to determine if the use of force was justified. This includes if there were other options available, could have the officer(s) used other tools or techniques, were the communications skills used by the officers appropriate just to name a few of the considerations.

bEn responds: I am glad that you wrote back and you are doing an awesome job of mayoring this city. You cut the PJTTF and I am very thankful for that. I didn't have the chance to say that Officer Dobson was not to blame for this incident. It was very kind of him to talk to me for that long and I am sorry if I insulted him. I just can't stick up for someone who would defend something like that. That is why I cannot agree with what you say. Seeing the reaction on the young mans face was enough for any person to ask questions and I'm glad I did. Tasing someone younger than the age of 18 can be deadly... I agree that tasers are a good alternative to guns, but I do believe they should be used carefully. The officer that did this did have an alternative to tasing this young man. Witnesses say the officer held his wrist on the ground and could have easily handcuffed him. Instead of handcuffing him, he put this young mans health at risk by tasering him. The fact that he lied to me about that makes me wonder what was he trying to cover up.

Unhoused Katrina Survivors Forced to Move to Arkansas

San Francisco Bay Area, 23.09.2005 01:07

On Monday, Santa Cruz Indymedia reporters Bradley and Vinny returned to the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, which had been a shelter for survivors of Hurricane Katrina, to find that the center was trying to return to its normal business of hosting conventions.

Foreign Workers Being Paid €3 An Hour In Portlaoise

Ireland, 22.09.2005 13:07

Equal pay for Equal work. Is that a difficult concept? From the newswire: €170,000 was the price paid for the house that I am living in, in a new development in Portlaoise. I am not happy to have discovered that European Union (Czech Republic) workers are being paid €3 an hour on the site. A correspondent reports on the actual employment conditions facing Czech workers in the booming Irish private property construction sector. From the newswire: €170,000 was the price paid for the house that I am living in, in a new development in Portlaoise. I am not happy to have discovered that European Union (Czech Republic) workers are being paid €3 an hour on the site. Recently my father bought a house at Fairgreen Village (a new post-modern living development) in Portlaoise. A woman that we know, who has been finding it very difficult to secure employment in Portlaoise, was offered a job (by another Eastern European person) cleaning out houses after they had been built, to get them ready for the purchasers to move in. She accepted the job and after the first day told me that she was being paid about €40 for ten hours’ work. This was on day one of the job. When I informed her that this was illegal and that we have minimum pay wage agreements, she told me that she knows but that is what Eastern European workers are paid, and must be satisfied with it. On the second day she was offered €20 for six hours work – a little more than €3 an hour. The woman refused to work for so little, but her friend stayed on. When the woman said that it was illegal, her would-be contractor (a woman from Latvia I think, who I presume to be sub-contracting from the developers, Owenass Developers) she was asked why is she looking for work since she is seeing an Irishman? This is something that must stop. We did not pay below the market value for the house. If the market value of the houses not sold goes you, you may be sure that the price of those houses will also rise. If the price of cement, for example, goes up, you may be sure that the prices of as-yet unsold houses will also rise, as the developer will “have no choice but to pass this cost on to the consumer”. If cheaper labour is secured, you may be sure that the prices of the as-yet unsold houses will not fall. The Irish people fought for long enough, and hard enough to secure minimum-pay wage agreements, and labour rights. Allowing foreign workers to work for below this will lead to a fall in the national pay for workers. The argument has been made to me that foreign workers are happy to work for so little, because it is worth so much more in their countries, and they can send some home. I still think that no matter how happy they are with €3 an hour they would be happier with the minimum legal amount. To contact the developers of this site you can email them, phone 0502 43567 or 086 2627314, or write to Sean Flanaghan, Owenass Developments, Portarlington, Co. Laois. The showhouses are open seven days a week. Mark Conroy. Related links: Fairgreen Village -- Homes built on the sweat of vulnerable immigrants?

A Candle Light Vigil for Fouad Kaady

Portland, 22.09.2005 10:37

When I went to the candle light vigil for Fouad Kaady, I didn't prepare myself mentally for what I had seen. I expected bandanas, angry police officers, and a lot of pissed off people. When I arrived at the square I didn't see that at all. The experience I had at that vigil made me really realize that this actually happens to people like you or me. This happens to totally innocent people. I was brought to tears from what I saw. I saw a sad family, people crying, strangers giving each other hugs, and everyone standing in solidarity, as the cops smirked close by. Everyone was so sad and angry at the police for doing such a thing. How can they get away with a crime like this? I will never forget my experience at that candle light vigil as I hugged complete strangers and cried with them.

When I arrived at Pioneer Square with two friends, I saw a large group of people looking nothing like activists. I saw regular people, with regular clothes crying over their son who had been shot by police. I couldn't have a conversation with anyone before they broke out in tears. It really hurts me that this issue is not looked at by the media as such a big deal. It was a real stroke of reality for me and my peers. To see there expression on their faces will tell you their story. As I passed people I heard strangers talking to each other saying words like, murdered, and five shots. The experience was something that I cannot put into words, it was just so horrible the look on these peoples faces whose son had been murdered and his killers will never be brought to justice.

The Coming Pandemic?

Portland, 22.09.2005 09:37

Health officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and at the World Health Organization, are urgently warning governments and public health officials that a deadly avian influenza virus may soon spread rapidly across the globe, overwhelming unprepared health systems in rich and poor countries alike. The lethal Type A strain of influenza virus, known as H5N1, first emerged in Hong Kong in 1997 and has since been responsible for the deaths of hundreds of millions of chickens, ducks, and other water fowl, and increasing numbers of mammals. As of July, over 100 people in Southeast Asia have been infected, most from contact with infected birds, and 60 have died.

This is a powerhouse virus. Infectious disease experts are warning that it is only a matter of time before the virus mutates to become more easily transmittable among humans. Once it does, it will spread quickly, and the global death toll will likely be in the tens of millions. Despite these warnings, local, state, national and international preparedness is entirely inadequate to the potential threat. As one health expert said recently, "avian influenza is a viral asteroid on a collision course with humanity". [ read more ]

St Helens Mill Endangers Citizens, Sends 23 to Hospital

Portland, 22.09.2005 09:37

I live in St Helens, right near the Boise Cascade mill. I've never really felt good about this neighbor; all summer long yellow-brown veils of smog hung over the city, trailed from the stacks at boise. And just before it rains, the whole town stinks of au de paper mill. I've called DEQ to complain, but never heard back, and I've called city hall, but gotten no help. Today, I learned from the local paper out here that there was a chemical accident nearly 2 weeks ago, that sent 23 people to the hospital. Despite living within spitting distance of the mill, I was never notified of any danger until today, reading it in the paper, 13 days later.



Contesting Arnold's Election

San Francisco Bay Area, 22.09.2005 05:37

Kevin Hall, local campaign manager for the Alliance for a Better California, is worried that not enough people are paying attention to the November 8 special election. "The governor is trying to push his right-wing agenda by holding an off-year election," Hall says. But organized labor and community activists are mobilizing their forces and have a strategy to win in November. The plan includes a door-to-door effort, a "Dog Arnold" campaign, and a big Get Out the Vote effort. On a pleasant Saturday afternoon last month, more than 100 people came together to learn about the propositions and began walking precincts in southwest and southeast Fresno. Precincts will be walked each weekend until the election. Report and pictures here.

George Fox 6: Campus Activism at the Crossroads

United Kingdom, 22.09.2005 01:37

On Monday 26th September, the trial of the George Fox 6 commences at Lancaster Magistrates Court. Six student activists face charges in a three day arising out of an action that took place at Lancaster University in September 2004 where protestors had gone into the George Fox building at the university to hand out leaflets and talk to people at the "Corporate Venturing" Conference - a networking meeting for multinational corporations. Speakers at the conference were drawn from controversial arms manufacturer BAE Systems, Shell and other companies the six say have 'long histories of human rights abuses and environmental destruction'. Police attended and told the protestors they were doing nothing wrong, but some months later they received summonses through the post. The defendants are seeking support at the trial.

She was convicted of the murder of her husband and two children in Houston in 1987 in order to collect a life insurance policy.

There was no incontrovertible physical evidence connecting Frances Newton to the murders.



What Gandhi Means to Me

Tennessee, 21.09.2005 13:08

On October 2nd the world will celebrate the 136th birthday of Mohandas K. Gandhi. He was born in 1869 in the Indian state of Gujarat. Some might find it amazing that such a great man could come from so humble of a beginning. The really great ones usually start as such, therein lies part of their greatness. Rather than regurgitate a day-by-day biography, I wanted to pay tribute by saying what his teachings mean to me.
