Right Wing Moving in on Sesame Street

Urbana-Champaign, 04.10.2005 16:08

Right-wing ideologues are silently taking over our public media. Just when we thought Big Bird was safe, trouble has returned to Sesame Street. In fact, trouble never left. The Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), the agency that oversees PBS and NPR, is the latest in a long line of institutions to suffer hostile takeovers by right-wing ideologues. Though Republicans’ attempt to de-fund the CPB in June backfired after setting off a public firestorm, the assault from within has run unabated, led by right-wing apparatchik and CPB chair, Kenneth Tomlinson.

Bay Area to &quot;Welcome Cindy Home With Love&quot;

San Francisco Bay Area, 04.10.2005 14:37

On Wednesday, October 5th, many Bay Area anti-war activist groups plan to "Welcome Cindy Home with Love". A benefit, will begin at 7:00pm at the Grand Lake Theater at 3200 Grand Ave in Oakland (Directions). Advance tickets are available.

Cindy Sheehan, who gained national attention for her campout near President Bush's ranch in Crawford Texas, has returned to California. She told the national press and administration representatives that she wanted to meet with Bush to ask him what the noble cause for which her son had been killed was. Following her stay in Crawford, she and other Gold Star Families (families of US soldiers who died in Iraq) embarked on the Bring Them Home Now tour from Crawford to Washington, DC, where Sheehan and others spoke at the September 24th anti-war protest in DC. Camp Casey and its demand for answers moved from Crawford to the front doors of the White House, and to those of Congress and the Senate.

Harriet Miers Nominated To US Supreme Court

San Francisco Bay Area, 04.10.2005 14:37

On October 3rd, 2005, Bush nominated his personal lawyer, Harriet Miers, to the US Surpreme Court. Miers has never served as a judge. Her stances on legal issues are unknown to all except perhaps Bush's inner circle. Cases that will come before the Court will include issues such as abortion, euthanasia, and military recruiters on campuses. With Roberts as Chief Justice and Miers likely to get confirmed, there could be significant changes in the US legal system. There will likely be cases that deal with military tribunals in Guantanamo and the right of the President to declare US citizens enemy combatants, allowing indefinite imprisonment without a trial.

No Borders Actions

United Kingdom, 04.10.2005 13:37

Over 500 marched in Bolton on Saturday in solidarity with the Sukula Family, against Section 9 and for an end to all immigration controls.

The Sukula Family is one among many who after the proposed introduction of Section 9 is threatened to be separated and have their children taken into care. Their pledge for asylum was rejected and they do not receive any benefits. Bolton city council still refuses the implementation of Section 9, currently tested in a few northern councils which would oblige them to take the kids of the Sukula Family into care on the grounds that their parents cannot support them. The council argues that this would violate the family-protection act and the cost of it would be higher than continuing paying benefits to the family. The support of the Sukula family and the opposition against Section 9 brought together groups and unions from various northern cities and town. Two Unions decided in a consensus vote of their members to refuse to participate in implementing Section 9. Speakers reminded the crowd of the importance to build local and regional networks of solidarity and resistance aganist the racsist policies of the British and EU governenments.

The speaker will be addressing how the US and to a lesser extent, the UK has 'shaped' intelligence to fit policy.

Centrelink censors union members


Santa Cruz, CA, 04.10.2005 10:38

"We hope you will give it your serious attention, and we look forward to your reply."

On September 27th, the Santa Cruz City Council voted, UNANIMOUSLY, to resubmit a letter to the House Judiciary Committee of the United Sates Congress calling for the investigation and possible impeachment of all the members of the Bush Administration who have had anything to do with the war in Iraq, the "war on terror," and/or the treatment of the prisoners of those wars.

The original letter (.pdf) was sent on September 10th of 2003, but NO ANSWER was ever received! The HJC blew off both the Council and this Community!! In a moment of levity that got many laughs, Council Member Tim Fitzmaurice suggested that, this time, they send the letter "certified, return receipt required" and he would donate the money to do so!

Though the action in 2003 was reported world wide, what was not reported was the fact that in the 10 DAYS! following that vote, the council phone lines were jammed all day with calls from all over the country, from folks thanking and congratulating them for standing up and speaking out!! And that was two years ago!

The new cover letter, explaining why the Council is resubmitting their original letter, is copied below. Clearly, the evidence supporting the original concerns of this community has increased vastly in these last two years!! And in a recent poll taken after the release of the Downing Street Memos in May, over 47% of the people polled said they thought Bush should be impeached if he had lied about the reasons for invading Iraq.

World Farm Animals Day at KFC in Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz, CA, 04.10.2005 10:38

There were about a dozen people at the demonstration on Mission St. in Santa Cruz on October 2, World Farm Animals Day, to protest KFC. Mission St. is also Highway 1 and there were a lot of people that honked in support of the demonstration. Informational flyers were passed out to passing motorists, as well as customers who were both entering and leaving KFC. This particular demonstration lasted about an hour, and by the time we left, there were only two customers in the restaurant.

At one point, I was standing on the sidewalk and looking inside the KFC when an employee flipped me the bird - you know, gave me the middle finger. I was quite amused by this so I walked up to her and asked her if she wanted to do that again for the camera. She declined and told me she was going to sue me.

But I have to say, the KFC employee of the day award goes to the manager for running after me and kicking me in the upper thigh. It is too bad that Amy, a film student at Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, had stopped filming just seconds prior to him kicking me. However, for what it's worth, she recorded a statement saying that she witnessed the manager kick me.

&quot;The United Nations cannot be reformed&quot;: Chavez tells the people of the US

Portland, 04.10.2005 04:38

President Chavez's recent visit to the United Nations on September 15th caused a major commotion in the United States. First of all, the Bush administration tried to block and delay the visit, so that Chavez's appearance would not coincide with Bush's at the United Nations ... But when Chavez finally spoke at the UN assembly he delivered a very powerful and damning speech. The main thrust of it was that the United Nations did not work and could not be reformed. However, he added that in the meantime three measures should be taken as a matter of urgency: the abolition of the right of veto in the Security Council, the inclusion of countries from the South on the council, and to move the UN outside of the United States since this was the country that had violated the most UN resolutions! ...

President Chavez...repeated his offer to supply cheap heating fuel to the poor communities in the United States so that poor people would not die of cold during the winter. He offered to do this through CITGO, the US subsidiary of the Venezuelan state-owned company PDVSA. [ Read More ]

The FBI scares the public by framing the threat as one coming from activists instead of coming from global warming, and earth destructive corporations. It is dangerous to adopt the rhetoric of the FBI, as Kelly Hearn of and other progressives seem to... Eco-activist, Jeff Free Luers is serving a 22 year 8 month sentence (twice the sentence received by the Abu Grahib sadists) for burning 3 SUV's at a deserted dealership in Oregon (not California). He once said, the "REAL eco-terrorists, are the ones terrorizing our eco-systems". The terrorists are arguably companies such as Weyerhauser, Monsanto, Union Carbide and Halliburton, who have had an enormous destructive impact on both the natural world, and on human health. As Utah Philips said, these people "have names and addresses." Forms of dissent which cannot be easily controlled and safely neutralized like marching, voting, lobbying, letter writing, etc. are defined as "terrorism." However, property destruction has been a part of American dissent since the Boston Tea Party. [ Read More ] Why global warming is a non-issue to the public

Independent Media from Houston and New Orleans after the Hurricanes

San Diego, 03.10.2005 13:37

On September 9th, Vinny and I arrived in Houston, Texas along with Blank from Portland, Oregon to provide aid in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The three of us headed to Houston to help with with independent media, including a low power fm radio station which was being organized for the Astrodome. Upon our arrival in Houston, we learned that the Astrodome emergency radio station was again being blocked from broadcasting information to survivors of Hurricane Katrina.

We went to the Astrodome and spoke with people who were willing to speak with us. We listened to their experiences in the past and at the Astrodome. Please visit the following links for audio, photos and written reports published by Vinny, Blank and I.

It took activists like you and i to respond to Hurricane Katrina with important services such as wellness centers to provide health care, media centers for local and global communications, kitchens and housing to provide food and shelter, etc...

The destruction caused by Katrina, racism and classism will never go away.

September Critical Mass

Portland, 03.10.2005 09:37

This month's critical mass saw the PPB passionately enforcing lighting requirements with the obsessive linear misguidedness of a teen in lust. As a point of reference for this article I have pasted the OSR that was key in my interactions last night.

The ride started out with what appeared to be a one-to-one ration of bicycle officers to Critical Massers. Though the heavy down poor of rain severely limited the turn out last nights ride and lessened the disposition of the officers assigned to the ride ... for me (Jasun Wurster) this ride again reaffirmed why I feel Portland needs Critical Mass.

gray, wet and rolling

Last month only 3 tickets were handed out. More than I would like, but way better than a year ago. In August, one person who was ticketed seemed upbeat because he was warned by the police. (crossing the middle line and other somewhat petty stuff)

This month all seemed typical. I made it to the start just in time to see the mass rolling out on Burnside. We must have been at NW Park and Davis when I noticed a biker had the hilt of a sword sticking out of his backpack.

I jokingly razed him a little about all the weapons he was carrying. (the blade plus 2 u-locks) Alas, I should have kept my mouth shut. [ read more ]

Low Power Radio Conference to be Held in Davis

San Francisco Bay Area, 03.10.2005 06:07

On October 8th and 9th, KDRT-LPFM will be hosting the Low Power Radio Roundup, an event meant to bring together the many emerging community stations around California and Oregon. In 2000, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) created the low power radio service, as a way for community groups to get access to the airwaves in a time of excessive radio consolidation. Since then, over 80 new radio stations have hit the air in California alone. As these community groups have little prior experience in radio, this conference is meant to provide a space for these stations to network and share skills and experience. The event will include training in radio journalism, internet streaming, and radio theater, as well as cover a variety of station management and legal issues. In addition to inviting low power radio stations, this event will bring together more established community and pirate radio stations from California and Oregon. It is being co-sponsored by the Prometheus Radio Project, KPFA, and the UC Davis Technocultural Studies department. Audio about the low power radio movement and its roots in pirate radio.

UCSF To Pay Huge Fines Rather Than Face Public Hearings

San Francisco Bay Area, 03.10.2005 04:10

University of California San Francisco this past week paid one of the largest fines for Animal Welfare Act violations in history. Last fall the U.S. Department of Agriculture had charged UCSF for 75 counts of animal welfare violations. "The gravity of violations is great," the USDA complaint stated. A UCSF insider recently noted, "Over the years, UCSF has had to cope with a handful of scientists who haven't always had the best attitude toward animals." Vivisectionist Stephen Lisberger was specifically listed in several of the charges. Now, the university has settled all of the violations by paying the fines for creating an atmosphere where employees are afraid to report complaints and several other charges. UCSF settled the case just days before formal hearings were scheduled to begin. By agreeing to the settlement, activists were disappointed that researchers were able to evade public scrutiny of the facts about their treatment of animals in the 600 to 800 experiments conducted at UCSF at any given time. Activists contend that the university seems especially determined to keep their researchers' actions hidden from the public, which pays for their experiments with millions in tax dollars. In Defense of Animals (IDA) began a new round of demonstrations at UCSF last week, focusing on educating the public about what is taking place inside UCSF labs while encouraging insiders to "blow the whistle" on UCSF's animal cruelty.

One day on the bridge a woman asked me why I call myself the Lone Vet. She also was interested in what I saw for the future of our beloved country. I remember answering that I did not know but there is always hope. For the second time a friend asked me about this most important concept, so I will try to answer the question, "Is there hope?"

Our republic, in my opinion, is based on trust. We elect people to represent us in Washington and we trust them to do honorable work for the betterment of the country. Most of us want to be free from the nuts and bolts of running this country that we call the United States of America, we are busy trying to live our lives. We are in the grips of a criminal administration and are now forced to look at the decisions that were made and the reason for those decisions. We trusted our politicians and the trust was broken almost from the first day Bush took office. I do have hope, and it is you. [ read more ]
