San Francisco Bay Area, 17.11.2005 04:37

In two weeks, the Governor and top corrections officials will be revealing their plan for reforming California's youth prison system.

On Wednesday, September 16th, a statewide vigil will be held at 6:00pm in several cities for the youth who are inside and all the youth who've been lost. The vigils will honor youth and families and call on the Governor to take real action now.

In Oakland, the vigil will gather at 400 Broadway (at 4th Street), and then march to the State Building at 1515 Clay Street . Candace Wicks and Rosie Austin will sing, and communitiy activists will speak. In Sacramento, people will gather at the Sol Arts and Culture Collective, 2010 Del Paso Blvd., for a screening of "System Failure: Violence, Abuse and Neglect in the California Youth Authority," and then song and spoken word.

From Sean on the newswire: Hundreds march against Fine Gael attack on Irish language Indymedia Ireland (Dublin, Nov 16th 2005) Hundreds demonstrated today against Fine Gael’s worrying proposal to make Irish language education optional, and no longer compulsory. Hundreds demonstrated today against Fine Gael’s worrying proposal to make Irish language education optional, and no longer compulsory. The demonstration was kicked off at the main gates of Trinity College at lunchtime, and so was witnessed by large crowds of sympathetic spectators as well as participants. Hundreds marched to the headquarters of Fine Gael, to shouts of “Fine Bearla.” When the group arrived at Fine Gael headquarters, party leader Enda Kenny emerged to address the crowd. He received jeers from the crowd when he told them that removing the Irish language requirement would actually help the language. In an act of dispcicable cowardice he then fled from the crowd when someone from Ogra na Gael got up to speak. Some observers such as "Fear Bocht" are unimpressed:There is nothing intrinsically progressive about Irish; in fact the cultural snobs and elitists have often used it to look down on the working class. Nor has it anything especailly republican about it; I'll think you'll find Wolfe Tone did not have a word. For those who want to speak it, learn it and teach it, all facilities should be given but compulsion did not and will not work. http://www.indymedia.ie/attachments/nov2005/marchlowres.jpg http://www.indymedia.ie/attachments/nov2005/ucdsu.jpg http://www.indymedia.ie/attachments/nov2005/labour_banner.jpg http://www.indymedia.ie/attachments/nov2005/enda.jpg

FRSC: Report from Palestine

Santa Cruz, CA, 17.11.2005 00:08

Report from Occupied Palestine 11-15-05

Audio interview with George Cadman, FRSC producer working with the International Solidarity Movement, reporting about Bil'in from the village of Qawawis in occupied Palestine.

Download the mp3

The army came into the village around 3 am. About six Israeli activists, ten Palestinians from the village and three of us ISMers went out into the street with our cameras. We followed the army through the village, filming, as they went to one house and then another, banging on doors. They tromped through gardens, yards and olive groves. Basically, behaving as though they owned the place. There was only one house where someone was home. A woman and her husband came to the door. The man repeatedly told them that the only children in the house were babies, the oldest being 8 years old. The army tried to convince him to let them enter while he tried to tell them to let his children sleep and not come in and frighten them. Finally they decided to leave and not to enter the house. Then they went down a dirt road behind his house. He told them that it was just someones garden, but they went down there and were banging on sheds. They gave up after awhile when it was obvious that there was noone in them. After about an hour they left with noone. The fact that there was so many of us watching, definitely seemed to deter them from using more force and from staying longer than they did. We hopefully made a difference.

Keep tuned to Free Radio Santa Cruz 101fm this month for more reports.

Amerikagipfel in Mar del Plata, Argentinien

Germany, 16.11.2005 22:07

Vom 4. bis zum 5. November tagte in Mar del Plata in Argentinien der Amerikagipfel (Cumbre de las Américas) der Organisation Amerikanischer Staaten OAS. Dies gab Anlass, nicht nur in Mar del Plata zu demonstrieren, sondern auch in verschiedenen anderen Städten Argentiniens und Lateinamerikas. Die Polizeirepression war heftig, es gab massiven Tränengaseinsatz und dutzende von wahllosen Verhaftungen. Parallel dazu nahmen mehr als 50.000 Menschen am Cumbre de los Pueblos de América teil. Aufgerufen hatten dazu etwa 500 soziale, kulturelle und politische Gruppierungen.

Ceuta/Melilla: Europäische Karawane 5./6.11.05

Germany, 16.11.2005 22:07

Etwa 400 Menschen kamen am letzten Wochenende nach Ceuta, einer der beiden spanischen Enklaven in Marokko, um gegen die Abschottungspolitik Spaniens und der EU zu protestieren. Es war die erste Demonstration zu diesem Thema in Ceuta, einer hochgradig militarisierten Stadt, nach den dramatischen Ereignissen an den Grenzzäunen der Enklaven Ceuta und Melilla in den letzten beiden Monaten. Im Verlaufe dieser Ereignisse starben 16 Menschen, etwa 4000 Personen wurden von den marokkanischen Behörden in ihre Herkunftsländer abgeschoben und immer noch werden hunderte von Flüchtlingen in marokkanischen Militärcamps festgehalten.
Die TeilnehmerInnen kamen hauptsächlich aus den andalusischen Städten Granada, Malaga und Sevilla, aus Madrid, Galizien, Baskenland und Katalonien - es gab auch einige Leute aus Italien, Frankreich und der Schweiz. Die Mehrzahl der TeilnehmerInnen trug orangene T-Shirts mit einer Leiter als Emblem und dem Aufdruck: "No a la Valla de la muerte" (Nein zum Todeszaun)<



Australien: Größte Proteste in Geschichte des Landes

Germany, 16.11.2005 22:07

In Australien kam es am Dienstag zu den größten Protesten in der Geschichte des Landes. Mehrere hundertausend Menschen protestierten gegen die neoliberale "Reform"-Politik der Regierung Howard. Im Mittelpunkt steht dabei das Gesetz für "industrial relations", ein Angriff auf die Arbeitsbedingungen, welches von der Bundesregierung Howard vorgeschlagen wurde und eng mit der Anti-Terror"-Gesetzgebung verwoben ist. Das Streikrecht wird als "aufrührerisch" quasi abgeschafft.
Allein in Melbourne gingen verschiedenen Angaben zufolge zwischen 150.000 (Polizeiangaben) und 200.000 (Gewerkschaftsangaben) Menschen auf die Straße. In anderen Städten waren es jeweils mehrere Zehntausend. In Sydney wurden Straßen blockiert. Insgesamt wird von landesweit einer halben Millionen Demonstranten in nahezu allen Städten (300) Australiens ausgegangen.
In der deutschen Presse wird von "einigen Zehntausend Teilnehmern" gesprochen.

Bill O'Reilly Heard on KNEW Suggesting that Coit Tower Should be Blown Up

San Francisco Bay Area, 16.11.2005 20:37

On November 8th, Bill O'Reilly went on KNEW-910AM and used the public airwaves to condone a terrorist strike on San Francisco. He suggested that Al Qaeda specifically blow up Coit Tower - which is dedicated as a memorial to fallen firefighters. O'Reilly said, "And if Al Qaeda comes in here and blows you up, we're not gonna do anything about it. We're going to say, look, every other place in America is off limits to you, except San Francisco. You wanna blow up the Coit Tower? Go ahead." These comments were roundly criticized by Mayor Gavin Newsom, Supervisors Daly and Peskin, John Hanley (President of the San Francisco Firefighters Union Local 798), local journalists at KRON, the SF Chronicle, CBS-5, and many community activists.

Media activists feel that this is one more reason why people should take action now to deny KNEW's license renewal. This can be done by going to http://www.bethemedia.org to print, sign and mail an Informal Objection to the FCC and the Station Owner before November 30, 2005. These letters can help to make the FCC aware of Clear Channel/KNEW's pattern of broadcasting anti-American hate speech on the public airwaves. The Be the Media Website also has sample letters and background about struggles against Clear Channel.

Higher Expectations Week Demands Better from Wal-Mart

San Francisco Bay Area, 16.11.2005 08:07

On Saturday, November 19th at 12 Noon, there will be a protest outside the Oakland Wal-Mart at 8400 Edgewater Drive, Oakland (near the Oakland Airport). Organizers plan to educate Wal-Mart shoppers and fight for health care, fair labor practices, and local and independent businesses-- all of which are endangered by Wal-Mart's expansion. Read more

November 13th through 19th is "Higher Expectations Week," with events planned in over 1200 locations to hold Wal-Mart accountable for its negative impacts on communities. A major complaint that many people have is that Wal-Mart's growth has been thus far nearly unchecked. This past weekend, in hundreds of churches, mosques and synagogues across the country, congregations heard messages of economic justice, respect for community and fair labor practices. Robert Greenwald's new documentary "Walmart: The High Cost of Low Price" has been shown in thousands of homes and public places all over the US. It will be shown on Wednesday November 16th at 9:00pm at Station 40 in San Francisco. Search for more screenings

A leaked internal document recently detailed the company's plans to open or expand 484 stores next year alone. The document lists 100 more expansion sites than Wal-Mart had previously disclosed. Another recently-leaked memo reveals the disregard with which Wal-Mart's executives view their more than 1.3 million employees in the U.S. It confirms facts that Wal-Mart has long denied, including that 46% of the children of Wal-Mart's U.S. employees are uninsured or on Medicaid. This memo lays out plans to remedy Wal-Mart's healthcare crisis, the memo lays out plans to cut spousal benefits, hire more part-time employees and encourage faster turnover, and discourage older and unhealthy people from working at Wal-Mart by requiring more jobs to require physically challenging tasks.

Some are calling for Buy Nothing Day protests to target Wal-Mart on the day after Thanksgiving.

Boise Neighbors Come Out to Discuss their Community

Portland, 16.11.2005 04:38

Tonight, November 14th, the Boise Neighborhood Association (BNA) held its monthly meeting at Albina Youth Oppurtunity School (AYOS). There was a small agenda on the table, but alot to discuss. The agenda and some points exist here. The agenda points were: Green Space Grant, Drug Free Zones, and Elections.

The Green Space grant money was granted by the artice formerly known as Prince in 1992, I believe. THe idea behind the money was to create green spaces in low-income communities of color, the original amount was $10,000. A failed community project ate up $6,000 of that in 1997 I believe. The BNA asked community members to think of proposals for the remaining $4000. The Kurisu Corporation made a stunning powerpoint proposal presentation, explaining how the $4000 would cascade into the Kurisu's private Japanese Garden. The original plan is that the Kurisu's would be granted the monwy and for the first year the $4000 would be held up for possible community areas, and if the community did not come together in that year, the Kurisu's would absord that $4000 into their $250,000 Japanese Garden.



Common Ground relief workers in New Orleans arrested, threatened by NOPD

Portland, 16.11.2005 04:38

Last night, Thurs. November 10, 2005, three medical workers documenting police harassment outside the Common Ground Free Clinic became the targets of that harassment. This incident is the culmination of increased daily harassment this week, and are just a few of the examples of abuse that volunteer relief workers have faced over the past two months and that New Orleans residents, especially African Americans, are facing everyday.

Greg Griffith, a volunteer relief worker, was arrested by the New Orleans Police and ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) near the Common Ground Free Clinic in Algiers. Greg was thrown against the car, charged with crossing a police line, resisting arrest, and carrying a concealed weapon- a small pocket knife. While handcuffed in the back of the police car, he was told that he would be "shot, and his body thrown in the river". He was bailed out last night fearing for his safety and will go to court at OPP this morning. Emily Westerholm, the Unit Coordinator was violently thrown to the ground and Scott Weinstein a resident RN was verbally abused.

World Summit On Information Society - Part II

United Kingdom, 16.11.2005 00:38

The second part of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) is held from November 16 to 18 in Tunis, Tunisia. The first part of the UN sponsored event was held in Switzerland in December 2003, where people from all around the world gathered for meetings and actions during the official meeting in Geneva expressing protest under the slogan 'WSIS - we seize'.

The choice of place for the second part of WSIS - Tunis - is more than hypocritical for a summit on information society: While Tunisia is catching up economically with the capitalist North, it is far from any information society if you are talking about the freedom of information (report). Furthermore - and different to 2003 - it seems almost impossible to express protest against this summit. Nevertheless some initiatives and organisations called for alternative meetings. Some Human Rights Groups take part in the "Citizens Summit on the Information Society (CSIS)". Others try to bring in their ideas within the WSIS itself.

Free access to knowledge for everybody is not the goal of WSIS, and the summit organizers' plan is to concentrate on governmental and corporate use of information and communication technologies. This approach fits the choice of place. Yet, the summit does not only give legitimacy to a repressive regime, its focus also ignores the social and technological situation in the Magrebh region. The majority of people in this part of the world do not have access to communication tools and the authoritarian regimes in the region are reliable allies to the european governments in supressing freedom of movement.
