Filiberto Ojeda Ríos Killed by US in His Home in Puerto Rico

San Francisco Bay Area, 30.09.2005 00:37

Filiberto Ojeda Ríos was assassinated in his home in Hormigueros, Puerto Rico by the FBI on September 23rd. Ojeda Ríos was a member of the Macheteros (also known as the Ejercito Popular Boricua or Boricua Popular Army), a militant pro-independence organization in Puerto Rico. He had been labeled a terrorist and sought by US authorities since 1990.

Law enforcement waited 20 hours before entering the house, and found him dead. Autopsy reports show that he had bled to death from the wound in his shoulder.

The killing of Ojeda Ríos added insult to injury for Puerto Ricans, who are fighting for indepdendence from the United States. He was killed on the anniversary of the Grito de Lares, which is considered to have been the launching point of Puerto Rican nationalism, and is a national holiday. On September 23rd, 1868 between 600 and 1000 men, mostly Puerto Rican born, revolted for independence from Spain. They managed to take Lares without any resistance. before the Spaniards became aware if the revolt. They set up a provisional government and declared an independent Puerto Rico Republic. The following day they marched to San Sebastián, where the Spanish militia defeated them. 20 of the indepedentistas escaped, 8 died in action, 7 were tried by the War Council. Four months later Spain declared a general amnesty. No one was executed or kept in jail over 4 months, but 80 had died in jail from yellow fever. The majority of the insurgents were Puerto Ricans and represented diverse socio-economic and racial levels. Read more Filiberto Ojeda Ríos had released statements every year on the Grito de Lares. Protests have been held in Puerto Rico and US cities such as New York.

All Quiet on the Southern Front

Santa Cruz, CA, 29.09.2005 23:38

A Report from the Santa Cruz Minute Maids

On Saturday, September 17, Friends of the Border Patrol (FBP)'s plans to begin border activities were preemptively shut down as activists from across the state banded together for a mass disruption. Caravans swept through border regions surrounding Calexico and Jacumba in search of vigilantes, focusing on areas of high border activity and previous Minuteman sightings, but found all to be quiet on the southern front.

At 8:00 am, protesters met prospective trainees for the self-appointed civilian border policing group, Friends of the Border Patrol, at the Scottish Rite Masonic Center in San Diego. They banged pots and pans, held banners, obstructed entrances, and called for an end to racist violence. Aspiring border patrollers attempted two citizen’s arrests against protesters. One arrestee, a white male, was released immediately. The second, a Latino, was held inside a cop car for about an hour before being released with a citation for battery. Although this protest had seemed to be merely a prelude to the main event, it turned out to be crucial: Friends of the Border Patrol’s failure to mobilize significant numbers for their planned launch that weekend was blamed in part on intimidation by the morning’s resistance.

One Man Still in Jail After September 24th Anti-War March in SF

San Francisco Bay Area, 29.09.2005 21:07

During the anti-war march in San Francisco on Saturday, September 24th, a man was arrested by police and has been held since in SF Sheriff’s custody. He was beaten and arrested on a felony charge of possession of a deadly weapon, which was reportedly a knife that was on him at the time of the arrest. He was held in solitary for five days, and is now being held in general population in the San Bruno jail. He needs help to post bond and the legal team is asking for support for him.

He is scheduled to go to court Friday morning September 30th at 9:00am in courtroom 9 at the San Francisco Courthouse, 850 Bryant Street.

Madison Police are Out of Control

Madison, 29.09.2005 20:07

Today Stop the War had a counter-military-recruitment protest at the Kohl Center, during a career fair. We were not interupting or otherwise infringing upon the rights of anyone at the fair, simply holding signs and passing out literature. The Marines, Airforce, and CIA were there. The UW police came and told us to leave. Bill Linville (Stop the War member) asked to see the policy which stated why we couldn't be there. They showed us a copy of the UW administrative code, which we were in full compliance with. He asked what rule we were breaking, and they refused to tell us, at which point the police officer pointed to two random people in the group, and told Bill they would be arrested if we didn't leave.

FEAR

Portland, 29.09.2005 09:37

The little black electric clock was buzzing, I was in a wonderful dream, and we were at peace. When I looked at the clock it said 0600; I had to get up and be about the business of protesting on the Morrison Bridge, Portland, Or. I wanted coffee----give me coffee and all things would seem better. My beloved wife Patty said, "You don't have to get up, it is your day off, and taking one Friday off from your protest will not change the world." During my second cup of coffee, waiting for the bus to come at 0705, I wondered what keeps me going.

What makes a guy who is happy with his life, has a great lady to share his adventure of living for the last 25 years (+)---grandkids that think he is funny and love building things with him; what makes him risk being arrested or run over by some nutty Bush supporter who gets angry over one of his signs.

What makes this guy, who now calls himself the "Lone Vet" because he has decided to stand alone on the bridge from 0730-0830 every Friday with a sign that most people ignore, some cheer, and others who yell commie coward. One word comes to mind, "Fear." [ read more ]

Two More Oregon Soldiers Die in the War

Portland, 29.09.2005 08:38

As the sad word reaches us about two more deaths half a world away, in a war that should not be, I am feeling conflicted about how to respond to the news. I understand that flags will be flying at half mast tomorrow and the next day, in a symbolic gesture of futility meant to be respectful of the dead. But how much respect can I really offer? Almost none at all.

This probably seems cold to most people, as if I were slandering the dead. But that is not my intention. I, too, am saddened by the news of yet more "collateral damage" in a war that seems like it may never end. I, too, understand that these two human beings surely had other intentions for their lives, than to wind up blowing away with the dusts of Afghanistan. And I, too, wish they had never been asked to go there at all. But I cannot call them heroes. I cannot give them a moment of silence that is not haunted with the dead they took with them. And I cannot give the "brave soldiers" who might survive all this any kind of parade.



Bristol Indymedia Film Night - 'War', 3rd Oct @ Cube Cinema

Bristol, 29.09.2005 08:07

Featuring 'Old Enough to Know Better' & 'Weapons of Mass Deception' Featuring 'Old Enough to Know Better' & 'Weapons of Mass Deception' Monday 3th October @ Cube Cinema £2/3, though nobody turned away for lack of funds. Doors open 7.30pm, films start at 8pm. The theme for this month's Indymedia film night is 'War' and it will be led by the multi-award winning film 'Old Enough to Know Better', which documents the mass school walkouts staged by thousands of school pupils in protest against the Iraq war. It shows the dramatic political awakening of young people and their facing up to an establishment reluctant to let them express their views - culminating in the storming of Edinburgh castle by youth gone wild! The Film was named best documentary at the UK’s First Light Film Awards for short films made by young people. This film will be accompanied by 'Weapons of Mass Deception': There were two wars going on in Iraq - one was fought with armies of soldiers, bombs and a fearsome military force. The other was fought alongside it with cameras, satellites, armies of journalists and propaganda techniques. One war was rationalized as an effort to find and disarm WMDs - Weapons of Mass Destruction; the other was carried out by even more powerful WMDs, Weapons of Mass Deception - the media war. Wards of praise for this film include; "A comprehensive and devastating critique of the TV news networks' complacency and complicity in the war on Iraq... brilliantly argued and scrupulously documented... a must see" Chicago Reader and "More cohesive and devastating than Fahrenheit 911" Boston Phoenix. | Venue: Cube Cinema: Dove St South (off Kings Square), Bristol | www.cubecinema.com | www.wmdthefilm.com | Pilton Video Project (makers of 'Old Enough to Know Better') |

Eyewitness Report of DC Monday Arrests

Portland, 29.09.2005 05:37

There were nine of us, who came from different parts of Oregon, to participate in the three-day events in DC. We all walked in the massive march on Saturday; on Monday two in our group chose to participate in the civil disobedience action. About 10AM Monday morning, our group walked over to Lafayette Park, which is across the street from the White House. By 12:30 marching groups from Camp Casey and another from the Laity and Clergy group converged onto the park with great cheers from the rest of us. By now, we were about 1,000 strong. [ Read More ]

What it was like: an account of Sept. 24th D.C.

The demonstration in DC was like a convention. One lady my age touched my arm and asked, "Who would have ever thought we would have to do this again?" Then she vanished into the crowd. We all had to show up at this convention to convince ourselves that there were others in a nation of over 280 million people occupying half a continent who have not gone stark raving mad. We were the others who gathered together at Washington DC on the 24th of September, 2005 and at points all over the USA and all over the world. We move to gather again, to get to know each other. These are not "demonstrations," because it is no longer possible to demonstrate the obvious. This was and will be a gathering of strength, of information, of momentum. It was like seeing hope. It was like seeing the future as it will be; green, whether in local sustainable communities or in recovering forests outside the ruins. [ Read More ]



The Threat of High Electric &amp; Natural Gas Bills

Portland, 29.09.2005 05:37

Prices are predicted to soar and there seem to be few alternatives for the low income consumer. When persistance of reports that heating oil and natural gas bills will soar this winter due to the hurricane devastation and other factors, we -- like many other low income and poverty level families -- have been frightened at the prospect of having to pay higher heating prices when we are already stretched to the limit by high rent, food, and other necessary monthly expenses. Since our local energy suppliers are essentially monopolies catering to shareholders, we don't have the luxury of shopping around.

Don't Eat That Fish!

Chicago, 29.09.2005 03:37

From the Newswire: "[...] a recent study by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration found that coal-burning power plants in the US are [...] the major source of domestic mercury contamination. The study found that 16 of the top 25 sources of mercury in the Great Lakes are coal-burning power plants, some of them from Nevada and Texas but most in Indiana, Wisconsin, Illinois and Michigan."
"Meanwhile mercury isn�t the only concern raised by coal-burning plants. Numerous studies have now linked them to respiratory problems including asthma and emphysema. A 2001 study by the Harvard School of Public Health blamed two coal-burning plants in Chicago, the Fisk and Crawford plants run by the company Midwest Generation, for causing an estimated 41 premature deaths, 2,800 asthma attacks and 550 emergency room visits per year. Nationally, a study by the group National Campaign Against Dirty Power showed 24,000 lives are cut short by an average of 14 years because of respiratory and heart problems and cancer exacerbated or likely caused by coal-burning power plants. Low-income and minority communities bear the brunt of these health effects, since the plants are normally located in or near lower-income areas. A 2002 study by the National Campaign Against Dirty Power found that 71 percent of African-Americans lived in counties that violated air pollution standards, compared to 58 percent of white Americans. African-Americans were also hospitalized for asthma attacks at three times the rate of white Americans. Reports by that group also found that seven of 10 Latinos in the U.S. are breathing air that violates federal standards, and 71 percent of Latinos live in counties that violate Clean Air Act standards." - Read More -

Terror profiling nets innocents

United Kingdom, 29.09.2005 01:37

If you think that the police's profiling of terror suspects is something that only happens to other people - think again. Software developer, David Mery, in provided an exclusive radio interview about how he was arrested when he drew the attention of police on the London Underground three weeks after the bomb attacks of July 7th and a week after the failed bomb attacks of the 21st July.

Davids 'crime'? - wearing a rucksack along with an 'unseasonal' jacket and checking his phone messages while waiting for his train. Luckly for David the police refrained from following the shoot-to-kill policy that had resulted in the tragic death of Jean Charles De Menezes less than a week earlier. Instead, they closed Southwark tube station and cordoned off the whole area while the bomb squad checked his bag. Eventually, finding nothing but a laptop in his bag, the orginal officers appologised then arrested anyway. His home was searched and his computers confiscated. You could be next.

Rural Residents Rally to Demand Collaborative Projects

Rogue Valley, 28.09.2005 23:38

BLM To Auction Controversial Public Lands Old Growth

On September 29th, the Medford Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is holding the largest public lands timber auction Southern Oregon has seen in years. Rural residents from the Applegate and Illinois Valleys will be gathering outside the BLM office at 3040 Biddle Road to protest this massive sell off of low elevation native forests. A press conference will begin at 9:00am.

Rural residents are asking the BLM to work collaboratively with citizens and local groups to develop projects that protect remaining old-growth forests while providing local jobs. The BLM has an opportunity to work with our communities to develop light-touch thinning projects that unite communities, instead they are moving forward with controversial timber sales that log large trees and intact forests, said Little Applegate resident Kathy Horner.



Klamath River Residents Protest Dams

San Francisco Bay Area, 28.09.2005 23:07

Klamath River community members staged a protest Tuesday in front of the Headquarters of Pacific Power to demand the removal of dams that residents say generate little electricity when compared with the damage to salmon runs and Klamath River Tribes. Massive fish die-offs and deadly algae blooms in the river are two immediate issues facing the Klamath, and to bring the message home protestors brought a pile of toxic algae and dead fish from the polluted reservoirs.

Residents and tribal members reported the lowest Chinook (or King) Salmon runs in recorded history that impact the local way of life. They demanded Pacific Power remove the dams to bring the salmon home to the upper Klamath watershed, which has not seen salmon in almost a century.
