Trial of Catholic Worker Five Begins Tomorrow at the Four Courts

Ireland, 23.10.2005 20:08

Daily Peace Walk in Solidarity at 9am from The Spire Together with Deirdre Clancy, Nuin Dunlop, Karen Fallon and Damien Moran, Ciaron is one of the group known as the Pit Stop Ploughshares. In early February 2003, these five took part in the non-violent disarmament of a US Navy War Plane at Shannon airport. They have been charged with US$2.5 million damage to the plane, which was forced to return to Texas rather than continue its journey to Iraq. Their trial begins on Monday Oct 24th 2005 at the Four Courts, Dublin, Ireland. This article gives a brief insight into the motivations of these dedicated peace activists. Indymedia photo essays of Ploughshares’ anti-war vigils Saturday‘s Vigil at College Green | Still on the Loose… Daily vigils last week | Rebel Priest Joins Ploughshares Vigil | Keep Death Off Our Runways | Vigil For Jean Charles de Menezes, killed by UK police on London Underground In August Ciaron O’Reilly of the Pit Stop Ploughshares spoke at the Greenbelt festival in the UK. As their trial begins, this essay is a reflection on his talk, and of how the actions of the Catholic Worker Five challenge all of us. The war still rages in Iraq and the situation is deteriorating, without any sign of the US-led coalition withdrawing. While the mass media presents little challenge to US use of Shannon, the Ploughshares trial keeps Irish participation in the war at the forefront of our minds. “Together with Deirdre Clancy, Nuin Dunlop, Karen Fallon and Damien Moran, Ciaron is one of the group known as the Pit Stop Ploughshares. In early February 2003, these five took part in the non-violent disarmament of a US Navy War Plane at Shannon airport. They have been charged with US$2.5 million damage to the plane, which was forced to return to Texas rather than continue its journey to Iraq. Their trial begins on Monday at the Four Courts“. In August, I was at the Greenbelt Christian Arts festival on the Cheltenham racecourse, in the UK. A Christian festival is a strange place for an atheist such as me to find himself. But Greenbelt is about more than just religion. It certainly has a Christian focus, but the festival is also about the environment, social justice, and issues of equality. This year included talks on the occupation of Palestine and on ethical living, and a lecture entitled ‘How to Be an Artist’, by ex-KLF man Bill Drummond, who once caused outrage by burning a cool million pounds. The festival is mostly attended by Christians, but there is little in the way of in-your-face religion. Some of the events have a very Christian focus, but there is plenty going on with a more universal appeal. And if sometimes I get frustrated with the multitude of ‘Make Poverty History’ T-shirts, there is also a more radical side to the festival. One example is the Belfast religious community Ikon, who tackled the taboo topic of homosexuality head-on with their session of worship, Queer. And another radical side to the festival was the talk by Australian peace activist Ciaron O’Reilly. Together with Deirdre Clancy, Nuin Dunlop, Karen Fallon and Damien Moran, Ciaron is one of the group known as the Pit Stop Ploughshares. In early February 2003, these five took part in the non-violent disarmament of a US Navy War Plane at Shannon airport. They have been charged with US$2.5 million damage to the plane, which was forced to return to Texas rather than continue its journey to Iraq. Their trial begins on Monday at the Four Courts. At Greenbelt, Ciaron spoke with his usual calmness and restraint. A fellow ’Catholic Worker’ and friend of Ciaron’s opened and closed the talk with a bit of music, and in between Ciaron reflected on the Ploughshares action and the war in Iraq. As always, no matter what troubles he has gone through as a result of his actions, the focus is on the troubles of the Iraqi people. Ireland’s Shannon Airport has been a pit stop for American soldiers on their way to Iraq for two years, with 25,000 troops currently passing through Shannon every month. Ciaron spoke of the imperative to act in response to this, in order to prevent loss of Iraqi life. Though the Pit Stop Ploughshares could not hope to stop all the planes passing through Shannon, at least by making one plane turn back to Texas, they hope to have caused some to be alive who would otherwise be dead - and somehow reduced the uncounted Iraqi victims of the bombs from US planes of war. And yet the Catholic Workers do not believe that they can stop the war, at least, not on their own. Ciaron has an interesting philosophy on activism. He does not believe that an activist elite can change the world. This is why he and the other Ploughshares are willing to face up to their action, and do not apologise or retreat from what they have done. This is why Ciaron speaks of the need to ‘bear witness’ to the action, by acknowledging it, and remembering it without regret. As he said at a solidarity night for the Ploughshares in September, while the Irish state would prefer to bring them ‘kicking and screaming’ through the court system, instead they are going ‘singing and dancing’. The Ploughshares’ action confronts Irish participation in this war, and prevents it from being shoved under the carpet. Their action seeks to bring the war to centre stage, and is a constant reminder of how Ireland facilitates the US military interference in Iraqi affairs. They make it impossible for denial and avoidance, and bring the war home to Ireland. And their action is a challenge to the rest of us. Their action does not only challenge us to take similar action, although it certainly does that. But short of this, there is plenty more to be done. On a daily level, their action challenges us to keep the war at the forefront of our minds. We are challenged to find ways to keep it in the picture - to talk about it, to remember its victims. Is it something we have forgotten? Is it something we keep on our own agenda? Of course there are other issues and campaigns that deserve our energy and attention. But the US and UK-led war in Iraq is surely one of the most central issues in the world today. It is a modern Vietnam. After 100,000 people marched in Dublin in February 2003 and were then ignored, it is easy to feel powerless, and to feel that there is little we can do to oppose this war. But this war still has the potential to unite a generation of people who are sickened by the state of the modern world. One of the main challenges and opportunities presented by the Ploughshares trial next week is that of solidarity. At the beginning of the month, the Ploughshares sent out an appeal for solidarity. In taking their action at Shannon, they took a huge risk, and put the issue of the war ahead of their own personal comfort. And those of us who respect and appreciate what they did have a duty to show them our support. They have held weekly vigils at the GPO throughout the summer to draw attention to Ireland’s role in the Iraq war. They also held a daily vigil during this last week. From next Monday, the first day of the trial, they will meet at the Spire on O’Connell St. from 0830 each day for a daily vigil and Peace Walk down to the Four Courts for their trial. It may be early in the morning, but they deserve our solidarity and support. The Ploughshares are about more than just anti-war activism. They are trying to play a role in building a community of activists. Ciaron and Damien are involved in advocacy for the homeless. The Ploughshares house on the South Circular Road is also used as a space of hospitality for activists. I have been fed and watered there many times after a day’s community gardening in Dolphin’s Barn. They have also provided beds for visitors to Dublin from the Rossport Solidarity Camp and from the homeless campaign in Belfast. Now it is their turn to be in need of solidarity and support. As they say themselves, they want to confront the US, UK and Irish institutions which are taking part in waging war in Iraq: “We hope the gathering around our our trial, beginning on October 24th., will be a time of celebration and non-violent opposition to the war. We hope friends from around Ireland, and from overseas, will gather in Dublin to celebrate non-violent disarmament as an authentic option for the human family“.

New health care initiative is gathering petition signatures

Portland, 23.10.2005 17:38

Currently called Initiative 40, the HOPE for Oregon families ballot title reads: "Requires access to health care as a fundamental right; Legislature must adopt plan expanding health care."

HOPE - led by chief petitioners Mitch Greenlick and State Senators Ben Westlund and Dr. Alan Bates - commissioned two questions on a recent poll. When asked if they would support that initiative, 71% of those polled responded affirmatively; 52% said they would strongly support that initiative which requires the Legislature to "ensure residents access to basic health care."

Greenlick, who recently announced he has been diagnosed with cancer, and Westlund, also a cancer survivor, believe Oregonians understand the dilemma facing people who get seriously ill and don't have access to health care. "No one should have to make the choice between food and medicine," said Greenlick. "No one should be forced to suffer without adequate health care. It is clearly the Legislature's job - according to the results of this survey - to find the best ways to strengthen and improve our existing health care system and find ways to cover the 615,000 Oregonians with no health care."

Signatures for the constitutional amendment are already being collected. If you would like to help gather petition signatures, please contact state Rep. Mitch Greenlick.

Political Prisoner Harold Thompson attacked by Aryan Brotherhood nazis in Prison

Portland, 23.10.2005 15:38

Long time 63-year-old Anarchist Prisoner survives yet another nazi attack

URGENT! Just this past week, Harold Thompson, an anarchist political prisoner in Tiptonville, TN, was attacked by five or six Arayan Brotherhood nazis while doing work in the law library in Tennesee's Northwest Correctional Complex. He suspects one of the prison staff, a racist sympathizer, might be in on it as well. He seems to be doing all right, nothing is broken, but every time he clears his throat or blows his nose he is spitting up blood.

He's asked for the word to be spread on the internet, and has asked folks to call the Warden of Tennesse, Tony Parker, "to find out what is up with this prison when an older man is mobbed by AB punks while working in a protective custory segregation unit?" The number for the prison is (731) 253-5000.

Derbyshire police go over the top again

United Kingdom, 23.10.2005 10:07

It would appear that Derbyshire police is going to use the usual tactic of over policing a peaceful event and hamper anyone who tries to have a lawful protest. Despite the organisers liaising with the local police authority over the anti-Trident work being carried out at Rolls Royce factory, this Monday, Derbyshire Police have applied and got a Section 14 order from the local council. See police statement

Previously Derbyshire police used Section 14 to control protests at the G8 ministerial meeting in June. According to the local rag there were "A thousand officers from 23 forces" and "policing the event was expected to cost between £1m and £2m", since there were perhaps 100 protestors it cost around £20,000 per protestor...

George Bush Visits the Ronald Reagan Library in Simi Valley, California

Portland, 23.10.2005 00:37

On October 21, I made my way over to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California. Well, actually, I did not make it all the way the library because the road was blocked off by the Simi Valley Police Department ... today (October 21, 2005) signs on the road stated, "Library Closed Invited Guests Only." Simi Valley is recognized as a very conservative area... It was a pleasant surprise to see that so many people had come together to call for peace, an end to the occupation of Iraq, and denounce Bush's frivolous trip to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library.

Need for Solidarity with Anti-Racist Protesters from Toledo, Ohio

San Francisco Bay Area, 22.10.2005 20:37

On October 15th, 2005, the National Socialist Movement (NSM) attempted to hold a picket and march in a predominantly African-American neighborhood in the North End of Toledo, Ohio. The neo-Nazi rally was protested by hundreds of neighborhood residents who were joined by members of the Anti-Racist Action Network from across the United States and Canada. Approximately 114 local people were arrested in a police riot that followed the cancellation of the neo-Nazi march. They are being charged with a variety of misdemeanors and felonies. A week later, at least a dozen people are still being held in Toledo jails. Judges have refused to reduce bail or offer bond, so these 12 adults continue to be held on $10,000 cash in lieu of bond following an arraignment last Monday.

Anti-racist activists think that this bail is unnecessarily large, and is just another way for the Toledo government to continue to oppress members of this working class North Toledo neighborhood. Most people cannot afford to pay this huge sum of money, and everyone arrested is a local resident with roots in the community and thus not a flight risk. They are calling for people to act in solidarity with the anti-fascist arrestees and show the State that they cannot intimidate protesters into not acting against fascist threats. Bail money is urgently needed, and they are asking anyone who can to send money. Read more

Protests Near Reagan Presidential Library Air Force One Pavillion Dedication

San Francisco Bay Area, 22.10.2005 20:07

On Friday, October 21st, the official unveiling of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library's "Air Force One Pavilion" was held in Simi Valley, California. Current president George W. Bush was in attendance, but the library was not open to the public, as is its custom 362 days per year. According to Santa Cruz IMC reporter Bradley, "(t)he closing of the library was a major inconvenience to all the people that wanted to take some time to tribute Ronald Reagan."

As Bradley drew closer to the library, he noticed about 40 people standing on the corner of Madera Road and Country Club Drive. Most of the people were holding signs calling for peace or denouncing Bush and his administration in one way or another. Bradley interviewed several members of Iraq Veterans Against the War.

Simi Valley is an incorporated city located in the extreme southeast corner of Ventura County, bordering the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles. Simi Valley is one of the communities that has been contaminated by the Rocketdyne Santa Susana Field Laboratory Contamination, a disputed and controversial issue involving the contamination of the groundwater, air, workers, and nearby residents near Boeing's (Rocketdyne's) rocket and nuclear test facility known as the Santa Susana Field Labs (or SSFL) in Southern California between 1954 and 1989. Simi Valley is recognized as a very conservative area. Bradley was surprised to see that so many people had come together to call for peace and an end to the occupation of Iraq, and to denounce Bush's frivolous trip to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library.

Kaady Grand Jury Day Five

Portland, 22.10.2005 17:38

We arrived at the Clackamas County court house at 9 this morning. Family and friends brought the signs and fliers for what we hoped would be the last day of this peaceful vigil. Twenty people were there most of the day, but from time to time the group grew a bit larger when people who heard the story of Fouad Kaady decided to stand with us. That was always welcome. A deputy stopped his car in the street, and accepted a flier from one of us... This is a long and tiring process and each person alone might get discouraged, but we draw on our combined strengths and help each other stand for this young man, Fouad Kaady, who deserves justice. [ Read More ]

A letter from Fouad Kaady's neighbor and friend. I lost my friend. I stand on the up-ended cinderblock, peering over my neighbor's fence. Still in dis-belief, I search for Fouad, out tending his garden, hoping to see his handsome young face with the engaging smile, and lively dark brown eyes. I listen keenly for his friendly hello. Nothing. I see his cat, Tiger, and the silence is suddenly broken by his soft meow, calling for a master who grew a catnip plant just for him! My eyes fill with tears, at the stark reality, my friend is gone. [ Read More ]

Yet she hasn’t been fired by her official employer, the NY Times. Was Times senior management in on the game?

Know Your Market Rights And Take Action Now!

Ireland, 22.10.2005 12:07

Administrative changes set to alter the right to hold farmer's markets From 1st June 2006 any town, village or city suburb that has not formally claimed its right to hold markets may find that they are permanently prevented from ever doing so. There is a revival in the popularity of such markets which will likely be snuffed out if we don't act now. Katy Sinnott explains how you can preserve these rights for your locality - and it's easier than you might think. From 1st June 2006 any town, village or city suburb that has not formally claimed its right to hold markets may find that they are permanently prevented from ever doing so. There is a revival in the popularity of such markets which will likely be snuffed out if we don't act now. Katy Sinnott explains how you can preserve these rights for your locality - and it's easier than you might think. EXTRACT: "So how do you know if your town has market rights? Almost every village does. To be sure, look at village place names. Is there a Fish Market Street or Market Square? Try to remember if you went to a market or fair in your town, or of being told of one by your parents or grandparents. If you don’t remember maybe someone else will. Ask. Look in town records. Check with the local history buff. If there ever was a market or ‘fayre’ they your village may have market rights. You don’t have to locate where the market was held or hold future markets where they were held in the past. It doesn’t matter. If the right is there it is there for the whole town as in Skibbereen. And don’t think if you live in the city market rights don’t apply to your area. It might be hard when trying to cross a road in busy Douglas to remember that it was once a small village district from Cork, but it was and most probably has market rights. Don’t delay or you will find that the old rights have expired. The deadline is looming to find out if you can do this. To lay claim to the rights, the village must hold a market before June 1st 2006. It is a short time and it might sound daunting but doesn’t have to be. A table with a basket of turnips and carrots will do. There must be a public announcement of the event. A hand written notice in a shop window or a couple of lines in the parish newsletter will do. If the market is held at least once a year for ten years your market rights are secure."ARTICLE IN FULL If you ever crave elderberry preserves, red currant jelly with a hint of sloe, blackberry and rosehip jam or rhubarb apple butter you should locate a real farmers’ market. I imagine some of you still have fond memories of the ‘Farmers Market’. Maybe you arrived early to get the pick of the fresh vegetables and newly laid duck eggs. You probably had your favourite stalls but it was important to take a look around the tables and compare the offerings. The buying done, your shopping bag filled and tucked under a chair, a spread of warm scones, fresh butter, some of that homemade jam and of course a pot of tea before you, you could settle for a chat. It wouldn’t be long before you were joined by friends and the talk could begin. The chat was casual but vital to women who were separated by fields and hedgerows the rest of the week. After church on Sunday there was an opportunity to greet one another and share news but with listening ears, especially little ones, it was not the time to discuss that news and certainly not the time for airing more personal hopes and disappointments. To get down to the real business of conversation there was nothing like the country market. Thankfully, the markets aren’t all gone. I have been to the farmers markets of Carrigaline and Ballincollig, on a Friday morning and Midleton and the Coal Quay [Cork City] on a Saturday. They are certainly alive and well. But considering that there were markets in virtually every village in Ireland, the existing ones are a rarity. Long may they last. And they can last, and we can even resurrect some of the extinct markets if we act quickly. Ten years ago, the 1995 Casual Trading Act became law. It was designed to provide needed regulation of full-time street traders. However, the new administrative measures like licenses and permits it introduced have had a discouraging effect on the home baker, local artist, the farmer and the gardener who want to sell their wares at a local farmers’ market. The recent legislation also put fund-raising fairs and charity bazaars in limbo land. Two court cases later, our right to sell our home-grown cabbages and homemade jams, soaps and candles for profit or charity through country markets has been confirmed as a right that has constitutional protection. Any village that has had a market in the past may be entitled to market rights. These rights may have to be regulated, as in the past, by the Health Act of 1878 not the Casual Trading Act of 1995. The Health Act is more appropriate and encouraging to local farmers’ markets. So how do you know if your town has market rights? Almost every village does. To be sure, look at village place names. Is there a Fish Market Street or Market Square? Try to remember if you went to a market or fair in your town, or of being told of one by your parents or grandparents. If you don’t remember maybe someone else will. Ask. Look in town records. Check with the local history buff. If there ever was a market or ‘fayre’ they your village may have market rights. You don’t have to locate where the market was held or hold future markets where they were held in the past. It doesn’t matter. If the right is there it is there for the whole town as in Skibbereen. And don’t think if you live in the city market rights don’t apply to your area. It might be hard when trying to cross a road in busy Douglas to remember that it was once a small village district from Cork, but it was and most probably has market rights. Don’t delay or you will find that the old rights have expired. The deadline is looming to find out if you can do this. To lay claim to the rights, the village must hold a market before June 1st 2006. It is a short time and it might sound daunting but doesn’t have to be. A table with a basket of turnips and carrots will do. There must be a public announcement of the event. A hand written notice in a shop window or a couple of lines in the parish newsletter will do. If the market is held at least once a year for ten years your market rights are secure. We live increasingly regulated lives. Retaining your local market rights is about keeping your local and personal options open. If our locality some day wants to be able to have an amateur fair, bazaar, fete or country market – whether for profit, charity or fun – at lest one person in each community needs to act right now. The situation is fluid but come June 1st, it may be set in stone. http://www.indymedia.ie/attachments/oct2005/fruit.jpg

Santa Cruz Bus Drivers on Strike, Students in Solidarity

Santa Cruz, CA, 22.10.2005 07:09

On September 8th United Transportation Union (UTU) Local 23 signed a state-mediated agreement with the Santa Cruz Transit District’s negotiating team to ensure there was no disruption in service to the Metro’s 23,000 customers. The drivers, knowing that a strike would mean working-class members of the community as well as students would be without transportation, decided to work under the Metro Board’s rules until June 30, 2006, allowing plenty of time to work out negotiations over a new contract. The deal was no strike, no lockout.

On September 23rd UTU members were shocked to hear that the Metro Board had voted to renege on their side of the agreement and that all worker protections had been removed. The state-mediator said that in all of his years overseeing contact negotiations, he had never seen a public sector employer turn down a state-mediated agreement. Under these conditions, the drivers were forced to call an indefinite strike on September 26.

This is an unfair labor practices strike and is not about wages. It’s about dignity and respect. The drivers are not asking for a raise, they simply want to keep what they have. They want to keep their benefits, which were immediately revoked when the Metro Board threw out the no-strike agreement. One main issue on the table is a system of general leave, where senior drivers would be permitted to take a month-long unpaid vacation once a year that would actually save the district money. The Board refuses to budge.

Protesters Welcome Bush at Entrance to Reagan Library



Mike D - In Trouble While In Trouble

Portland, 22.10.2005 05:38

Just returned from my allotted 30 minute visit with Mike D. He seems to be doing okay despite the fact he is facing possibly 20 days in the hole for the offense of refusing to strip down during the clothing exchange and wrap himself in a blanket. Does anyone have any firsthand knowledge of this practice? He is only allowed out of his cell for 30 minutes a day but can still receive mail and two half hour visits per week with up to 3 visitors per session. I put some money on his account so he could buy stamps and envelopes to reply to those who write him. Please - if you cannot go out and visit him then send your support through letters - read the list of rules/regulations for sending mail that was posted earlier.

We are looking for anyone who was present at the circus protest that witnessed his arrest - especially if you have photos or video tape of the incident. If you can provide any info please contact me at 503 775-5777 or get in touch with his court appointed attorney - Alan Norris. It has also been requested that letters be sent to the Sheriffs Department/Bernie Guisto - probably not the correct spelling - Mayor Tom Potter and both the City and County Commissioners to express your outrage that our tax dollars are being wasted on housing Mike D - a peaceful protester and activist - on these bogus charges while other more dangerous inmates are being released due to a "lack of jail beds."

From Camp Casey to D.C.

Portland, 22.10.2005 04:38

Bette Lee is a longtime activist photographer. When Cindy Sheehan set up Camp Casey outside George Bush's ranch in Crawford, Texas, Lee decided to take a trip down there to see things for herself and to support the anti-war direct action that Cindy Sheehan started. Inspired by what she saw, she then followed the story to the giant antiwar demonstration of September 24th in Washington, D.C. She will be giving a reportback on what she witnessed and show us what she caught on film. The presentation will be followed by a discussion about the anti-war/peace movement: what issues need to be addressed, what its goals are, what will happen after the war ends or the troops are brought home?

Please join Bette Lee and the IWW this Saturday night, October 22nd, at 7pm at the IWW Hall at 616 E. Burnside for an interesting and informative presentation with plenty of discussion afterwards.
