Bay Area Remembers Ken Saro-Wiwa

San Francisco Bay Area, 10.11.2005 03:07

This Thursday, November 10, Bay Area environmental and human rights activists will join others around the world in celebrating the memory of environmental and indigenous rights hero Ken Saro-Wiwa (October 10, 1941 - November 10, 1995). Saro-Wiwa, who was also a poet and playwright, co-founded and led the Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People, mass nonviolent resistance to Shell and other multinational oil corporations operating in the Ogoni homeland. In 1993, protests by MOSOP led Shell to "temporarily" abandon Ogoni territory, but it has not yet succeeded in returning. With weapons and money from Shell, the Nigerian military attacked and destroyed scores of villages, killing over 2,000 people and abusing thousands more. Ten Ogoni leaders were put through a mockery of a trial and executed November 10, 1995. The Ogoni resistance transformed the politics of the Niger Delta and galvanized indigenous resistance to oil extraction around the world.

Amazon Watch and Amnesty International will press Chevron to end its own practices of environmental and human rights abuse in the Niger Delta and elsewhere at a protest at Chevron's world headquarters in San Ramon at 11am. Later, a vigil in memory of Ken Saro-Wiwa will be held at San Francisco City Hall at 6pm.

March Against MUNI Service Cuts and Fare Hikes

San Francisco Bay Area, 09.11.2005 21:34

The Day Labor Program, Social Strike, Muni Fare Strike, and various other community organizations have called for people to come together on Thursday, November 10th for a march and rally. Critics of the city's public transportation system point out that increased fares and reduced ridership continue to work against MUNI's purported goals of reducing budget shortfalls. The cost of living is increasing for working people and poor residents of San Francisco, as exemplified by PG+E's announcement that California gas prices will be much higher this winter.

People will gather at 4:00pm on Thursday at 24th and Mission Streets and march to City Hall for a rally across from the Mayor's office. The Mexican Bus will be at 24th and Mission for seniors and those who are unable to march the entire distance. Social Strike is encouraging people to bring pots, pans, noisemakers, and signs and banners. Read more

Bay Area activists remember Ken Saro-Wiwa, continue struggle against oil and violence

San Francisco Bay Area, 09.11.2005 21:34

This Thursday, November 10, Bay Area environmental and human rights activist will join others around the world in celebrating the memory of environmental and indigenous rights hero Ken Saro-Wiwa (October 10, 1941 - November 10, 1995). Saro-Wiwa, who was also a poet and playwright, co-founded and led a mass nonviolent resistance to Shell and other multinational oil corporations operating in the Ogoni homeland, the Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People. In 1993, protests by MOSOP led Shell to "temporarily" abandon Ogoni territory, but it has not yet succeeded in returning. With weapons and money from Shell, the Nigerian military cracked down hard on Ogoniland, attacking and destroying scores of villages, killing more than 2,000 people and abusing thousands more.

Ten Ogoni leaders were put through a mockery of a trial and executed November 10, 1995. Apart from Ken, they are Dr. Barinem Kiobel, Saturday Dobee, Paul Levula, Nordu Eawo, Felix Nuate, Daniel Gboko, John Kpuinen, and Baribor Bera. Their arrest, torture and execution led to international condemnation of the Nigerian military regime, which was replaced by a 'civilian' government under western-educated General Olusegun Obasanjo in 1998.

Even at this high cost, the Ogoni resistance transformed the politics of the Niger Delta and galvanized indigenous resistance to oil extraction around the world.

Activists from Amazon Watch and Amnesty International will press Chevron to end its own practices of environmental and human rights abuse in the Niger Delta and else where at a protest at its world headquarters in San Ramon at 11am. Later, a vigil in memory of Ken Saro-Wiwa will be held at San Francisco City Hall at 6pm.

Tax for war and war for profit

Bristol, 09.11.2005 21:33

The Peace Tax Seven and Bechtel Peace Tax Seven, including Robin Brookes from Wiltshire on trial, and Bechtel reps pimping for students in Bristol Robin Brookes tells of his consciencious objection to paying taxes to fund war: Robin Brookes, from Wiltshire, and the other campaigners who make up the 'Peace Tax Seven', continue with their campaign to have their conscientious objection to contributing to military expenditure through the tax system recognised. They want to pay their taxes in full, while diverting the appropriate proportion of their tax contributions away from military expenditure and towards peace building and international development. The barristers have brought in new cases in support and we think it is rather good. This is another turning point in our case where it is imperative that we show the strength of our support. Full article Green writes: Evil multinational BECHTEL are holding a Bristol university graduate recruiting bash at the Hawthorns on Woodland road on Wednesday 16th November at 18.30. Bechtel is not only profiting from the war with Iraq being one of the largest "reconstruction" contractors but through a variety of government advisory positions, they seem to have played significant roles in ensuring that the war took place. Indeed, George Shultz former US Secretary of State and the company's current senior counsel and director is also the chairman of the advisory board of the Committee for the Liberation of Iraq, a fiercely pro-war group with close ties to the White House.

This November: Remember Fallujah

United Kingdom, 09.11.2005 15:08

A month of events in November 2005 to remember what happened in Fallujah and other cities in Iraq and to demand justice for those attacked.

One year ago this month the US, with the support of the British, began its second major assault on the Iraqi city of Fallujah. This massive and unprecedented offensive killed many hundreds of civilians, destroyed much of the city's housing and created tens of thousands of refugees. An earlier attack in April 2004 had killed at least 600 civilians. See Jo Wilding’s report of riding an ambulance inside the city during the siege. Report

US forces committed major war crimes during the assaults including: bombing residential areas and killing many civilians; imposing a 'shoot-to-kill curfew' and using snipers to fire on unarmed civilians; targetting and shutting health facilities; and, using phosphorus weapons. See the Italian documentary showing use of phosphorus weapons, background to film.

Over twenty UK Remember Fallujah events are taking place including: non-profit film screenings; a national speaking tour with US author and activist Rahul Mahajan (in Fallujah during the April 2004 siege Report); an international teach-in, Voices from Occupied Iraq organised by Iraq Occupation Focus; vigils to mark the attacks on Fallujah last year.

See www.rememberfallujah.org for more information on all the events, on what happened in Fallujah and the ongoing attacks on Iraqi cities.

Woman Arrested For Asking About Animal Research Found Guilty Of Trespass

Portland, 09.11.2005 09:08

The trial was in front of a judge and because it was a violation trial, the standard of proof for the state was preponderance of evidence. OHSU had 6 witnesses, including 3 security officers and Mars was her only witness.

The woman who called security when Mars showed up at her office, Kristina Kerns, was one of OHSU's witnesses. Mars came to the office and told them she was there to pick up the information that had been described to her on the phone (materials printed specifically to give to the public). The defendant's lawyer asked Kerns what about Mars made her feel unsafe. After taking a moment to think up an answer she replied that it was because Mars was carrying a bag and she didn't know what was in it. The particular bag that the defendant had been carrying was present in court. It was a small purse, about six inches long with embroidered flowers.

Portland City Council Considering Resolution Supporting Public Access

Portland, 09.11.2005 09:08

On Wednesday, November 9, 2005, the Portland City Council will consider a resolution introduced by Commissioner Dan Saltzman opposing the broad preemption and loss of local control and benefits proposed in the several bills now pending in the Congress.

There are many things at stake here: citizen access to the media; free speech issues; ability of local governments to govern their own right of way within their jurisdictions. All these are important facets of Democracy, especialy media democracy.

Even if one does not care about televison, we the people have the right to access this technology, as we are the owners of the airwaves. Corporations reaps billions on dollars in profits every year, and do little for the community in return for this enormous windfall. One thing they do, the are mandated to do, is provide the public access to both the cable itself and the technology necessary to produce television.

Protests against new US Ambassador - one arrest!

Aotearoa, 09.11.2005 01:08

The new US ambassador, William McCormick, was confronted this morning by anti-war protesters at Government House today where he was presenting his credentials to the Governer General. Fifteen anti-war protesters gathered at the entrance gate displaying a banner reading "Fuck off out of Aotearoa". Another group of activists also managed to get inside the huge garden and made their way up to the Government House with a banner saying "US terrorists out of Iraq". Eight Police turned up and as a paddy-wagon arrived the group of protesters decided to left together. One person received a written tresspass notice from Government House. One protester was arrested on Adelaide Rd. when walking into Newtown for using 'offensive' language at around 12:30pm. "The U.S. Government is fighting imperialist wars in the Middle East. The profiteers are multinational companies who plunder the resources of the people of Iraq and Afghanistan. Mr. McCormick, as a representative of the U.S. Government, is responsible for the daily suffering of the Iraqi people and we feel he is morally obliged to step down from his post." said Valerie Morse, a member of Peace Action Wellington.

Madison Metro Bus Service Cuts Loom Big for 2006

Madison, 08.11.2005 23:08

Last July, over the passionate objections of numerous low and middle income residents of Madison, Mayor Dave Cieslewicz and the City Council approved increases to Madison Metro bus fares. Madison's bus users had no choice but to immediately begin paying the higher fares in August or be turned away at the bus stop. Tonight and next Tuesday, the second half of the double whammy for those who rely on Madison Metro will be debated, beginning at 6:30 PM. In spite of the fact that mass transit is more environmentally sustainable, less congestion-causing, more energy-efficient and is more affordable than using personal automobiles, city government is now proposing to drastically cut it's subsidized bus service to the community, citing rises in fuel costs. In response, and at the urging of Madison area bus advocates in the community, several city alders are proposing the city's budget be increased by $557,000, to avoid what will otherwise be certain hardship on many community residents who have come to depend on Madison Metro bus service for travel to their jobs, shopping, studying, church and other functions and activities in the community. Concerned publics have an opportunity to register and/or testify in support of the proposed budget amendment to increase the funding to Madison Metro at tonight's and next Tuesday's City Council meeting.

Italian TV Airs Documentary on US use of Chemical Weapons in Fallujah

Portland, 08.11.2005 20:38

Italian state TV aired a documentary that claims US used chemical weapons-- white phosphorus, which melts human flesh to the bones "I saw the burned bodies of women and children. The phosphorous explodes and forms a plume. Whoever is within a 150 metre radius has no hope," one former US GI, Jimmy Massey reports.

Mohamad Tareq, a biologist who was in Fallujah, stated in the video, "A rain of fire fell on the city, the people struck by this multicolored substance started to burn. We found people dead with strange wounds, the bodies burned but the clothes intact."

Indeed, in watching this video, there are numerous graphic photos of horrific injury. Melted charred bodies with the clothes strangely intact. Many of them obviously civilians including children. You can watch it yourself (English version) at either of these links

Beware the U.S. mediaIn recent weeks, U.S. corporate media has been claiming that they were fooled just like everyone else about the WMD's in Iraq. They have apologized, said they will do better. Well this is just a pile of bull.

Hundreds of independent sites were saying before the full scale assault on Iraq that there were no WMD's. It was proven that the documents claiming Iraq was buying uranium were forgeries. Millions of people around the world marched in the streets, knowing the US government was lying. Only a willful ignorance could explain why the corporate media, with its thousands of people, ultra-high tech equipment and millions of dollars, could continue to propagate government lies.
