Bos bezetting in Schinveld

Netherlands, 10.12.2005 20:38

Het bos rondom Schinveld wordt inmiddels al een week bezet gehouden, vanwege de wens van Defensie om het te kappen. Er wordt gewerkt aan een boomhuttenkamp waar hulp nog altijd welkom is (zie ook de materiaallijst). Er komt veel steun uit het dorp.
Ook over media aandacht is niet te klagen. Er is onder andere aandacht geweest op de regionale en nationale TV. Afgelopen zondag was er een persconferentie. Er komt ook nieuws direct uit het kamp in de vorm van foto's en dagelijkse updates. Eerste dagen, 6, 7, 8, 9 December
Inmiddels is de secretaris-generaal van Defensie langs gekomen in Schinveld om over de situatie te praten. Daarbij zijn onder meer klimmers op het dak geweest (Foto's) en heeft de secretaris-generaal de achteringang genomen.

Surplus: Terrorized Into Being Consumers

San Diego, 10.12.2005 15:08

Activist San Diego Film Series Presents Surplus: Terrorized Into Being Consummers.
When: Sunday December 11th from 4:00-7:00 PM
Where: Activist House: 4246 Wightman St 1 block south of University Ave and 2 blocks west of Fairmont on corner of Van Dyke & Wightman in City Heights.

CONSUMERISM December 2005 -- Activist San Diego film series presents a collection of films for this holiday season. The film series theme for this month will cover several issues related to consumerism and the negative effects that it can have on people and society. We will be showing three films on this topic throughout the month of December. At a time when people are being heavily encouraged to equate the purchase of material goods with love and happiness, true love and happiness take a back seat to what has become a wasteful unquestioning way of life. After the attacks on the world trade center on 9/11, George Bush said that the most patriotic thing one could do was to go shopping…….. These films are an answer to his claims about what it means to be a free and patriotic citizen of the United States of America.

ASD Film Series for the month of December presents:

1. Surplus: Terrorized Into Being Consumers
2. Affluenza -- (To Be Announced)
3. Escape from Affluenza -- (To Be Announced)

All films will have The Media Foundation and AdBusters’s Culture Jamming Anti-commercials before their screening.

NOLA Common Ground: Dispatch #2

Rogue Valley, 10.12.2005 07:38

The organizing phenomenon that is the Common Ground Collective is an incredible sight to see. Common Ground was born the week following the hurricane, by a group of courageous locals and their regional activist allies who initially armed themselves to defend black neighborhoods from roving white vigilantes who were shooting at young black men. Out of that warzone atmosphere has grown an organic crisis response team that has diversified and grown extremely quickly into a sophisticated organization with over a half dozen semi-permanent locations and 30-some programs ranging from health care clinics, distribution centers, a pirate radio station, legal advocacy teams, and now house gutting crews.

FBI Arrests Six People for Alleged ELF and ALF Actions

San Francisco Bay Area, 10.12.2005 03:38

On December 7th, six people were arrested in five states for their alleged roles in ELF and ALF actions. Those arrested were Stanislaus Gregory Meyerhoff, Daniel Gerard McGowan, Kevin M. Tubbs, William C. Rodgers, Sarah Kendall Harvey and Chelsea Dawn Gerlach. William Rodgers was arrested in a raid on an Infoshop in Arizona. The defendants have been indicted by federal grand juries in Oregon and Washington, on charges related to four separate fires in the Northwest and the destruction of a power tower-- events that date back to 1998. If McGowan and Meyerhoff are convicted, they would reportedly face the most severe sentences for non-violent sabotage in United States history- a minimum of 30 years per incident.

Resources for Finding Missing Gulf Coast Animals

San Francisco Bay Area, 10.12.2005 03:38

It appears to be that many animals in New Orleans died because Governor of LA Kathleen Blanco, FEMA and New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin did not allow people affected by Hurricane Katrina to stay with their pets or to return to New Orleans to rescue their loved family pet members. Some 40,000 companion animals died because they had been left at home, either starving to death or suffering from injuries. Some pets who survived have been lost in the system because it took organizations several months to get organized enough to be able to list so many rescued animals.

Pantera's Plectrum and Nintendo's Balls - all in the aid of GM protestors

Bristol, 10.12.2005 02:07

Auction to raise funds for court fines for the Sainsbury's Five GM Protestors need YOU NoGM-Please writes: Five people were found guilty of aggravated trespass yesterday after they blockaded a Sainsbury's distribution centre in attempt to protect the public from the supermarket's GM fed milk. Four of the five were first time offenders, and yet they were given 50 hours community service, and ordered to pay 150 costs each. The punishment is regarded as being an extreme and disproportionate response, and it would appear was meted out specifically because they were rebels with a cause. To help them out with fines and legal costs, a group of friends asked for donations of odd and/or interesting items that could be auctioned. Below is the result, so please bid for anything that takes your fancy or you think would make a good present! All proceeds go to the Sainsbury's Five...

Police escalates offensive crackdown culture poster drive

United Kingdom, 10.12.2005 00:07

Nottingham Police, allied with authoritarians at the local council and the Home Office, have been wasting taxpayers' money on a wave of offensive posters intended to terrorise dissidents and the socially excluded. This campaign has escalated with attempts to terrorise those involved in subvertising the posters.

Recent instances have included the return of the especially sinister anti-begging campaign, where the state spreads slanderous accusations accusing beggars of bankrolling drug dealers. This campaign has been connected in previous years to deaths of homeless people in cold weather, and to physical assaults on homeless people due to incitement by the posters. The campaign even led to violence and reduced revenue for Big Issue vendors who are engaged in an entirely legal activity.

Es importante hacer llegar el apoyo de todos a Jesus Hidalgo, y transmitir este apoyo al alcalde de Jaén, Miguel Sánchez de Alcázar Ocaña, Consejería de Servicios Sociales de la Junta de Andalucía y al Defensor del Pueblo Andaluz.

Winter Soldier film opens in DC this weekend

The film Winter Soldier will be in Washington, DC for a limited engagement on December 9-15 at the E Street Cinema (downtown on E Street between 10th and 11th). In January of 1971, a month after the revelations of the My Lai massacre, a public inquiry into war crimes committed by American forces in Vietnam was held at a motel in Detroit. Organized by Vietnam Veterans Against the War, more than 125 veterans (including the young John Kerry) spoke of atrocities they had witnessed and committed. Though attended by press and television news crews, almost nothing was reported to the American public.



OPEN LETTER TO THE COMMUNITY – FROM CAFÉ MAWONAJ

For three years, we have thrived in the area and served thousands of people. We have fed children, sponsored and hosted important events, donated resources and been a part of global campaign for a better world. What hurts even more is to know that someone is behind the fire....The Fire Department has never come back to the Café since they doused the flames, despite their assurance that they would be coming to investigate. I called several times the officer who is investigating but he does not answer his phone or return calls. The investigation Officer’s name is Hobbs.
