Honkie America Redux- The Plight of the Latino Immigrant

Tennessee, 03.08.2004 01:40

(First published in issue #2 of The Dawn, an anarchist communist newspaper from Oakland, California, on August, 2004.) “It is no longer fashionable to be openly racist in the American middle class… The middle class, we are led to believe, has risen above all that... The political hot-button issue of the day is “immigration reform”. “Everyone” agrees that immigration reform is in order. ...what is the fret and worry sweeping the nation over “immigration”, but the latest clothing, the politically correct manifestation, the new façade of our old enemy, the racist-pig bourgeois white American middle class?”

Santa Cruz Night Out Returns to Tuesday Nights in August

Santa Cruz, CA, 03.08.2004 01:07

Last summer a group of community volunteers successfully piloted community street fairs on Pacific Avenue showcasing local talent and building community. Santa Cruz Night Out will once again unify the local community Tuesday nights in August. Building on the success of last year’s gatherings, the Coalition for Community Commons along with support from New Leaf Community Markets and Cruzio, will be hosting five events, two more than last year. “The goal of these events is to; once again, demonstrate that these events are beneficial to our community and local businesses. Many other communities are fortunate to have events such as these, and we hope that someday these events will be a weekly occurrence during the summer in downtown Santa Cruz”, stated John Fisher of the all-volunteer Coalition for Community Commons. Santa Cruz Night Out will take place from 5:30 – 8:00pm on Tuesday nights in August on Pacific Avenue, between Lincoln and Cathcart. This pedestrian friendly portion of Pacific Avenue will host the following events: August 3 – Kids Night Out, August 10 – Dancing in the Streets, August 17 – Santa Cruz Unplugged, August 24 – Avenue of the Arts, and August 31 – A Taste of Santa Cruz. All Santa Cruz Night Out events are free.

Ireland gives a summer welcome to Citizen Traveller - yet again.

Ireland, 02.08.2004 15:04

Life as a Traveller in Ireland under the Public Order and Trepass Act. In August 2002 Indymedia Ireland carried a letter to the EZLN and Mexican civil society entitled "In Ireland Marcos is a Traveller".. The previous month the above poster had appeared campaigning against the trespass laws that had recently been passed. In the two years since that article Ireland passed the Nice treaty and built an Anti-War movement. Indymedia published 75,000 articles or comments and the Public Order Act sprang to prominence used against RTS'ers, Bin Tax campaigners and others. Of course some of those 75,000 articles also mentioned the trespass aspect and it's use against travellers. But since the DoJ decided to cancel the Citizen Traveller campaign, somehow the issue faded from the view of many. The stories from Cork should surely be told. Last summer, we saw why this county leads the league table of evictions with 138 evictions taking place under the new act in the first 12 months of its operation. An eviction in May 2003 (with more details and loads of debate) and another this summer (more coverage here). Indeed the last two years have seen the TASS initiative and — on Indymedia at least — an attempt to increase traveller visibility by telling the stories, following the cases and discussing the issues. An Indymedia editor suggested an update to 'Marcos is a Traveller' and contact was made with the Traveller Visibility Group. We got sent a set of pictures with asides and an invitation to tell the big story, do a feature and say what was happening. But when you look at the pictures, see what Ireland demands of her citizens, even those who qualify under the proposed new restrictions, its very hard to improve on the words that were published here two years ago. This war is happening everywhere including Ireland. The Irish government is at present using draconian new laws to move Indigenous Irish Travellers from anywhere that they attempt to camp. They are the Irish equivalent to the Indigenous Peoples of Mexico and they are being described openly by members of the establishment in Ireland as 'Terrorists'. They, unlike the EZLN, have never taken up arms to fight for Justice, Peace and Dignity. They have done nothing except live their lives as their ancestors have for generations. They are a nomadic people. Just today I read of 30 families who had moved their caravans to an unused portion of land near the city of Dublin (our capital) being driven from this land by the Irish Police. So why am I telling this to the Zapatistas and Mexican Civil Society? To point out that in the Fourth World War things are becoming the same everywhere. And to point out that the resistance everywhere finally can realise this through channels of authentic speech and authentic tellings of the truth. And to show the pictures of the welcome that Citizen Traveller receives this summer.

Fight the Lay Offs at D-Dot

Michigan, 02.08.2004 13:29

Picket and demonstrate the D-DOT Headquarters: THURSDAY, AUGUST 5TH, 2004 - 3:30pm-5:30pm, 1301 EAST WARREN @ I-75 DETROIT- On July 30, 2004 Mayor Kilpatrick laid off 112 DOT workers – all the attendants that clean the buses as well as many of the mechanics that repair them. The Mayor claims these outrageous cuts will not affect services. Everyone knows that’s a lie! On July 29th, D-DOT Director Norman White unlawfully walked out on the City Council after he was subpoenaed to answer under oath whether he plans to privatize the laid off workers’ jobs. If D-DOT isn’t privatizing those jobs, why did White refuse to answer under oath?

Don't Let Halliburton Privatize Virginia Highways!

ACTION ALERT: Issue: I-81 CORRIDOR PLANS WILL SHAPE NATIONAL POLICY AND DETERMINE WESTERN & SOUTHWEST VIRGINIA'S ECONOMIC & ENVIRONMENTAL FUTURE STOP Taxpayer subsidies for dedicated truck toll lanes on I-81. Call Senator John Warner's Legislative Assistant, Ann Loomis. Tell her to urge Sen. Warner to oppose Congressman Don Young's (R-Alaska) House earmark of $900 million for Halliburton's Corporation's STAR Solutions consortium. Halliburton wants to turn I-81 in Virginia into an 8-12 lane East Coast Truck Bypass. Halliburton is trying to privatize a free public asset (I-81) for private profit and then replicate this strategy all over the U.S. The real solution is to put all that freight on rails. Don Young's earmark will take transportation resources away from the rest of Virginia. Contact: Senator John Warner: Telephone: (202) 224-2023 Fax: (202) 224-6295

On Pride, Patriotism, and Progressivism

Madison, 01.08.2004 23:07

While Kerry and Bush battle it out to convince the electorate who is a bigger patriot, maybe it's worth pausing to think about what it means to be an American and what it means to be patriotic. Pride can be both a virtue and a sin. What side are you on, and what does it mean for the future of our country?
