DeNuke UC! -- UCSC Students Rally Against Bechtel and Nuclear Proliferation

Santa Cruz, CA, 01.12.2005 10:08

On Wednesday, November 30 – the UC wide Nuclear Day of Action (announcement and PR), approximately one hundred UCSC students took part in a spirited rally at the quarry plaza on the UC campus. The day’s events, called “DeNuke UC,” sent a loud and clear message to UCSC administration, the UC Regents as well as President Robert Dynes that Santa Cruz students do not stand for nuclear proliferation in the name of education.

The 2-hour long event, organized by the UCSC Students Against War, featured performances by the Raging Grannies, speeches by students and community members as well as a guerrilla-theatre “UC-Bechtel wedding ceremony. The day was culminated by an informative talk by former Lawrence Livermore Lab employee and whistleblower, Leuren Moret.

By decorating the colorful papier-mache bomb in the center of the crowd with writing and art, students, faculty, and community members were able to share their thoughts on the Bechtel-UC partnership as well as the continued research of new nuclear weapons at UC-run labs. “Don’t take my money for nuclear development: don’t steal my education,” read one quote, another called for the dismissal of the UC Regents and President Dynes.

Three Animal Rights activists arrested in Wellington

Aotearoa, 01.12.2005 02:08

Three Wellington animal rights activists were arrested this morning after locking themselves to a truck from a local factory farm. The truck belongs to Premier Bacon company, which intensively farms and slaughters pigs in Carterton.

Protestors locked themselves to the truck while the driver was making deliveries to a central city cafe. About twenty other protestors also joined the action, urging the large numbers of spectators and passers-by to go cruelty free this christmas.

More than 800,000 pigs are farmed for slaughter in New Zealand each year. Over 600,000 of these pigs are confined in factory farms, where they have no access to fresh air, sunlight or open space. They are housed in either individual crates or crowded concrete pens. At the end of this the pigs are taken to a slaughterhouse, where they are shot with a electric bolt gun and then killed.

After about 40 minutes of being locked to the truck, police cut the activists from the truck and arrested them. The two protesters locked to the front of the truck have been charged with 'disorderly behaviour' and 'unlawfully interfering with a motor verhicle', and the third, who was locked on top of the truck, was charged with 'disorderly behaviour' and "unlawfully gets upon vehicle".

10 police from the Strategic Response Group turned up and assaulted two people holding placards, but they did manage to not throw protestors against granite walls this time.

All arrestees have now been released. [ Photos ]

United Kingdom, 01.12.2005 00:38

A hunt supporter was today being sought by police in relation to an allegation of Criminal Damage after a hunt saboteur was attacked and had his video camera smashed as he monitor attempted to film the hunt. The incident occurred as the Cheshire Forest Hunt met at Peover Hall, Over Peover (near Knutsford) which also serves as the hunt kennels.

Rosa Parks Anniversary National Strike Against Poverty, Racism, and War

San Francisco Bay Area, 30.11.2005 20:37

People in cities across the country will honor the December 1st, 2005, the 50th anniversary of Rosa Parks's arrest with a Nationwide Day of Absence and Protest Against Poverty, Racism & War. This day is widely viewed as the anniversary of the opening of the mass Civil Rights movement and the struggle that brought Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.to prominence.

The Troops Out Now Coalition says, "The war in Iraq that has now destroyed the lives of more than 2100 U.S. soldiers and 100,000 Iraqi people; the racism and negelct at all levels of government in the wake of Hurricane Katrina; growing poverty and inequality; the drive to make the Supreme Court even more anti-woman and anti-civil rights; and Rosa Parks' death just days ago, have made this 50th anniversary of her arrest an even more serious and somber occasion to reflect on the need to restart the movement against poverty, racism and war." Downloadable placards and flyers

Organizers plan to use this anniversary to move the movement forward. There will be protest marches, rallies, and teachins all over the US (Locations). In New York City, thousands will march and rally on Wall Street because "a relatively handful of people who either own, control or profit from the economy, must know that we consider the right to live free of war and the right to a job, to be as much of a civil right as the right to sit in the front of the bus." In Rochester, New York, there will be a community service project, a teach-in, a funeral march, and a community meal and concert. Demands of these events will include: "Bring the troops home now; Justice for Katrina evacuees; Jobs at a living wage; Military recruiters out of our schools; Cut the war budget– not healthcare, education & housing."

On Thursday, December 1st the Healdsburg Peace Project will sponsor "WAR: Eyewitnesses Tell the Untold," featuring journalist Dahr Jamail, anti-war organizer Jeff Paterson, and Leuren Moet, who is an expert on depleted uranium.

Audio File: Report Back On Blumenauer Community Meeting

Portland, 30.11.2005 18:08

On Monday evening, November 28, 2005, Rep. Earl Blumenauer held a Community Meeting at Lewis and Clark college to gather public input concerning his recent Resolution to systematically withdraw troops from Iraq.

According to Blumenauer, the troops will be coming home next year. Through the evening he repeatedly stated that this would occur between 12 - 15 months. "".....the issue is how many, how fast, and what is going to be left on the ground....It's not enough to say that I was against it, and to be critical, but I think the notion of where we go from here..."

His comments were well thought out and, I believe, sincere. Some will agree, some will disagree with all or part of his position. But, personally, it is good to see someone stand up and make an effort to extricate our nation from it's present reckless path towards empire building. Not only reckless, but brutal and, for the most part, ineffectual.

CPT confirmed on 29 November that the four human rights workers missing in Baghdad on 26 November are associated with our organization. Update on Missing Persons in Iraq Wednesday, 30 November 2005, 1:00 am, Baghdad, Iraq BAGHDAD: We were very saddened to see the images of our loved ones on Al Jazeera television recently. We were disturbed by seeing the video and believe that repeated showing of it will endanger the lives of our friends. We are deeply disturbed by their abduction. We pray that those who hold them will be merciful and that they will be released soon. We want so much to see their faces in our home again, and we want them to know how much we love them, how much we miss them, and how anxious and concerned we are by what is happening to them. We are angry because what has happened to our teammates is the result of the actions of the U.S. and U.K. governments due to the illegal attack on Iraq and the continuing occupation and oppression of its people. Christian Peacemaker Teams (CPT) has worked for the rights of Iraqi prisoners who have been illegally detained and abused by the U.S. government. We were the first people to publicly denounce the torture of Iraqi people at the hands of U.S. forces, long before the western media admitted what was happening at Abu Ghraib. We are some of the few internationals left in Iraq who are telling the truth about what is happening to the Iraqi people We hope that we can continue to do this work and we pray for the speedy release of our beloved teammates.

worthy and free of male chauvinistic violence

There are people who believes that there is already enough impact of violence against women, but others will surely don't keep quiet until we women become free of it. Because our suffering is not a show, neither is a number, nor an exaggerated victimism. The pain of thousand women, is the pain of an entire society that needs an urgent cure. A cure that will necessarily require a sincere struggle to advance to the end of inequality, the discrimination and the existing present repression.

Youth Rates Smashed

Aotearoa, 30.11.2005 03:08

Today in Manners Mall young workers smashed a giant fast-food cup, with the brands of some of the New Zealand companies that paid young workers less, in a protest against youth rates. The rally was organised by the Wellington Youth Union Movement, and Unite Union. It was aimed both at the companies that paid younger workers less, and the government that let them. "Ruth Dyson, Minister of Labour, said that if an a 17 year old was doing the same job as someone older then they could get equal wages if their employer was a good employer. She obviously hasn't been in a real workplace for a very long time – 17 year olds regularly do exactly the same job as those older than them, and good employers are as common as unicorns." said Grace Millar, Unite Secretary. A young cafe worker talked about her experience, where she was paid $6.30 an hour to work as a barista and was expected to train older workers who were paid twice as much as her.

Buy Nothing Day

United Kingdom, 30.11.2005 01:37

Saturday November 26th 2005 was Buy Nothing Day (UK), the self proclaimed festival of frugal living and culture jammers jamboree. A day to expose the environmental and ethical consequences of consumerism, where developed countries (only 20% of the world population) are consuming over 80% of the earth's natural resources, causing a disproportionate level of environmental damage and unfair distribution of wealth. [Buy Nothing Day UK website]

A wide range of activities happened over the country. In Leeds free vegan burgers were given away outside McDonalds, there was also a free shop and party [report and pic]; Birmingham saw not only a Free Shop and Food Not Bombs but a day of mischief [report and pics]; Southampton people had a picnic on a busy shopping street; in Bristol People met up and gave away books, clothes, tea, food and information [feature] [pictures] [video], Bristol IMC also held a related film night.

Iraq Oil Union President to Tour UK

United Kingdom, 30.11.2005 01:37

Organising over 23,000 workers in Iraq's oil and gas industries, the Federation of Oil Unions in Iraq (IFOU) is struggling against both the US/UK military occupation and the corporate-led privatisation of Iraq's industry. The president of the federation, Hasan Jumaa Awad, is touring the UK and addressing public meetings during November and December.

The Union has stated that ‘The privatisation of the oil and industrial sectors is the objective of all in the Iraqi state/government. We will stand firm against this imperialist plan that would hand over Iraq's wealth to international capitalism such that the deprived Iraqi people would not benefit from it ... we are taking this path for the sake of Iraq's glory even if it costs us our lives.’

Ewa Jasiewicz, Co-Convenor of the IFOU Support Committee ‘Naftana’ (meaning ‘Our Oil’) said, ‘Hassan’s second visit to the UK is a wake-up call. Iraq’s oil has not yet been privatised, and the IFOU are in a position, physically, strategically and historically to make sure that it never will be. This union needs our maximum support’.
