The Sumac Centre needs help !

United Kingdom, 25.09.2005 15:37

The Sumac Centre is an independent community and activist resource centre in Nottingham. It is made up of a community cafe, social club, radical/social library, art exhibition space, Veggies catering campaign, filmnights, talks, meeting spaces and the residents. The centre is used by various local groups, collectives and individuals working towards social change and sustainability. It has hosted many national and international gatherings in the past and hopes to continue to do so. The centre is entirely run by volunteers


At the moment the centre is in need of help. Mainly due to reduced use of the centre/bar/cafe over the summer and mortgage rates increasing. At the moment there is a shortage of volunteers meaning the centre can't be open as much. We would like to continue to support and promote the work of many campaigns and individuals and continue the work we do in our local community...

Anti-War Demonstration Held in Santa Cruz on September 24

Santa Cruz, CA, 25.09.2005 11:37

On September 24, about 100 people who are "sickened by the killing, torture, and spiraling human and financial costs of the illegal and immoral war in Iraq" held an anti-war demonstration in Santa Cruz. People rallied at the County Court House and marched to the Town Clock.

I got to the rally in time to hear some folk music, take some photos of the Raging Grannies, listen to a guy describe how voting machines don't work, listen to another guy descibe how 911 was an inside job, see Robert passing out flyers about a taser related death inside the Santa Cruz Jail, etc....

Meanwhile, some Santa Cruz activists chose to protest in San Francisco.

A march and related events are taking place in Washington D.C.

Stop Lethal Tasering in Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz, CA, 25.09.2005 06:37

What are sheriff’s deputies doing tasering an unarmed man in jail?

According to Sentinel reports, on September 18th, Santa Cruz Sheriff Robbins’ Deputies tasered* David Anthony Cross inside the Santa Cruz County Jail, alleged to “control” him after he began banging his head on the cell door and “acting irrationally.” The five second “stun” charge of 50,000 volts was applied directly to his shoulder “once or twice” rather than at a distance, according to Lt. Phil Wowak.

In April, Santa Cruz Mayor Mike Rotkin refused to direct the police department to open its records regarding taser use. On September 24th, a Public Records Act request was filed with the City, seeking to determine how widespread police use of tasers is.

Klamath River film night Sunday Sep 25: Free the Klamath, bring down the dams

Portland, 24.09.2005 23:37

Come see "Salmon on the Backs of Buffalo" and other films on the Klamath Salmon and dams including a new video featuring underwater footage of the Klamath Salmon, Sturgeon, Steelhead and Lamprey. Native Speakers will share their environmental justice stories along with how to get involved with the struggle to force Portland-based Pacific Power (a subsidiary of Scottish Power) to take down the Klamath dams that now block hundreds of miles of fish habitat, and how to insure there will never again be a massive fish kill like the one that killed over 60,000 adult salmon in 2002.

Many of us from the Klamath River and other areas in Southern Oregon are coming to Portland on the Oxygen Collective bio-diesel bus because Pacific Power's headquarters is located in Portland. And we hope to drum up support to stop Pacific Power from killing more fish. We want to bring the salmon home to the upper Klamath Basin. Rides are available from Happy Camp, Ashland, and Eugene on the Oxygen Collective bus. There will also be a discussion on future protests in Portland to support the people and the animals of the Klamath River Portland Contact Number: (503) 493-7495 Other contact number 541 951-0126

Hundreds of thousands around the US protest war on September 24th

San Francisco Bay Area, 24.09.2005 23:37

September 24th: Hundreds of thousands of people protested the US war in Iraq and the lack of funding of people's needs such as disaster preparedness today. The protests took place on the same day as Hurricane Rita hit the state of Texas, bringing rains and strong winds to homes, oil rigs, and businesses. Indymedia radio stations came together for the monthly Critical Mass Radio Network broadcast. Radio stations conducted interviews about the protests, the war, and the two recent hurricane/evacuation disasters. They switched back and forth between carrying feeds from such locations as Michigan, Portland, New York, and San Francisco.

Some 50,000 people rallied and marched in San Francisco. An Anti-Capitalist Convergence gathered at 16th and Mission and then marched along the sidewalks to Dolores Park, where it joined the main march. There was a rally at Dolores Park, which turned into a 12pm march and arrived at Jefferson Square Park for a 2pm rally. At the park, the windows of a corporate media van were smashed, and "Fuck the Corporate Media" was written on the van. (Photos: 1 | 2 | 3)

Crowd sizes at protests around the country were larger than expected. 300,000 people surrounded the White House in Washington, DC. 50,000 people protested in Los Angeles. Twice as many people as were expected protested in Salinas, California. The anti-war movement has grown in the last two months as Cindy Sheehan has gotten national corporate media coverage of her attempt to talk with President Bush about why he went to war. In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, polls have shown that for the first time since George Bush invaded Iraq in March of 2003, a majority of people in the United States now call for the immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops from that country.

Stephen and Virginia Pearcy's Anti-War Art Attacked Again

San Francisco Bay Area, 24.09.2005 20:37

September 22nd:
Stephen Pearcy Reports: "Another of our 'Bush Lied, I Died' soldier displays was ripped down and stolen yesterday from our Land Park (Sacramento) home. This is the 4th time in the last 8 months that this has happened, and the 2nd time in less than a month." Since February, their home has been attacked in several other ways: Their cars, their guests' cars, and their house have been egged on several occasions; Bush re-election stickers have been affixed to their living room window; their house was fired upon with multiple rounds of paint balls at 2am; US Marine stickers were affixed to several windows on their house; a shovel was stuck in the middle of their front lawn between two orange cones spaced about 7 feet across from one-another (the way a grave site is marked for digging in a cemetery); numerous "hate" letters have arrived in the mail; numerous threats have been left on their answering machine; they have received numerous annoying hang-up calls; garbage has been thrown on their lawn on many occasions (McDonalds bags, beer bottles, etc.); someone subscribed them to about 40 different magazines; police have mysteriously and inexplicably gone to their house while they were at work in Berkeley; and more.

Stephen Pearcy tried to get information about one of the vandals by using Craig's List, but his posts have repeatedly been "flagged" and removed. When he complained to Craig, the Craigslist CEO (Jim Buckmaster) emailed him back and accused him of berating them and said he should use someone else's site. Pearcy has asked supporters to email Craig to encourage him not to allow flaggers to thwart his attempts to identify the right-wing vandals. Craigslist people, however, have continued to allow the flagging. Stephen and Virginia Pearcy had planned to spend vacation time together away from their home by participating in activities such as the anti-war protest in San Francisco, but they have been discouraged by the lack of official support for their battle to get the criminal justice system to help them. He wrote, "We're getting a bit tired and disappointed." Read more

Man Dies in Police Custody in Bayview Police Station

San Francisco Bay Area, 24.09.2005 19:07

Bay Area Police Watch reports that a 22 year-old man died early Wednesday morning on September 21st, in the custody of San Francisco police. Craig Holden of San Pablo was pronounced dead by paramedics shortly after midnight at the Bayview Police Station where he was being held.

While he had been in custody, Holden had complained of trouble breathing and was treated at the station by paramedics at around 10:45 p.m., Tuesday. The paramedic crew left at 11 p.m., but was called back to the scene at 11:23 p.m., when police officers reportedly noticed Holden slumped on a bench "in distress". After they tried to revive him for more than 40 minutes, he was pronounced dead at 12:09 a.m. A police spokesperson later said that officers had had to "physically subdue" Holden because he had been resisting arrest, but he was not specific about the type of force that had been used.

At present, autopsy results have not been released and information about the specific circumstances of Holden's death remains vague. Bay Area Police Watch and the Idriss Stelley Foundation both have questions about the circumstances of Holden's death and are calling for an investigation.

ANZ targeted by anti-war activists

Aotearoa, 24.09.2005 12:38

The central Auckland ANZ Bank was closed down today when 200 activists marched to the same bank that they occupied last March. [ Report and photos ] 20 police officers and several security guards stood still as protesters yelled "ANZ, Profits From Murder", "We all live in a terrorist regime" (To the tune of Yellow Submarine), chanting to the theme of starwars and the famed "S C U M, what does it spell? SCUM!" chant. In Wellington, activists handed out fliers on Friday outside the ANZ on Lambotn Quay. [ Report ] Two ANZ branches were occupied in Brisbane on Friday. [ Report ] ANZ is part of an international consortium called the Iraqi Trade Bank, which was set up by the U.S. occupation. The U.S. has abolished all tariffs in Iraq, opening up what was once a protected economy. This has left 70% of Iraqi’s unemployed. Trade Bank bureaucrats tour the world encouraging multinationals to take advantage of Iraq's vunerable economy. Local industries have not been able to compete and most have been forced to shut down.

Nog niet een bekomen van orkaan Katrina, die New Orleans zowat van de kaart veegde, wordt de golf van Mexico geconfronteerd met een nieuwe storm, Rita, die het vooral op Texas gemunt lijkt te hebben.

Na de schandalige manier waarop de hulpverlening na Katrina verliep, beweerden de autoriteiten dit keer beter voorbereid te zijn, maar het liep meteen al mis, de dijken in New Orelans zijn niet behoorlijk gerepareerd en de evacuatie van Houston loopt in het honderd. Er wordt niks gedaan voor de daklozen en wie niet wegkwam moet zichzelf maar zien te redden want mogelijks stomr bestendige publieke gebouwen worden niet opengesteld om te schuilen.

It is based on social science research, mostly in sociology, but it can be applied in activism, media endeavors, or teaching.

The doctor is not currently practicing as a result of having had his license pulled by the state medical board, which also fined him $26,000.

Dr. Leveque was one of the first doctors to help patients suffering from a range of illnesses to use marijuana to alleviate symptoms. Many doctors refused to counsel their patients on the therapeutic uses of the drug, preferring to use pharmaceuticals like Oxycontin and Hydrocodone to treat pain.
