Glendale: Jornaleros Victorious!

San Diego, 12.12.2005 19:08

Anti-racist, anti-fascist groups and individuals came together in Glendale in a mighty display of cooperation and support for day laborers and to shut down a weakened Save Our State.

Joe Turner arrested

GLENDALE, December 10, 2005--Seventy-five determined day laborers with 150 allies defended their brethren at the Glendale Temporary Skilled Worker Center this morning from a protest by Save Our State, a San Bernardino-based anti-migrant group.  SOS had called the demonstration to turn public sympathy against the workers, but only managed to bring out about twenty supporters.  SOS was overwhelmed in the sea of counterprotestors, and passing motorists along the busy San Fernando Road throughway honked their support for the jornaleros throughout the morning.



Earth/Animal Grand Jury Roundup

Portland, 12.12.2005 18:38

Before dawn, this morning, two FBI agents from the Eugene office and several state police officers came to Southern Oregon to subpoena Suzanne Savoie, to appear before a federal grand jury on February 16, 2005 in Eugene...They told Savoie that if she didn't start giving them information she would take the fall for all the men they said were involved. They said women usually take the fall for men and that she shouldn't let that happen. They showed Savoie four named photos of men who they said were the "bombmakers" and that they wanted her to give information about them. The FBI also used the usual tactics of threatening 60 years in jail to intimidate Savoie.

...they tracked down [Jonathan Paul] on highway 238 about 50 miles from here. He was in a van returning from work with several other individuals. He saw a BLM law enforcement vehicle followed by the Jeep SUV carrying the same two FBI agents approaching from the opposite direction. The BLM vehicle made a u-turn and turned on his overhead lights and promptly went off the road into a ditch and remained there while the FBI vehicle turned and followed the vehicle Jonathan was riding in. Many miles later, the van had to stop to drop off a couple of the occupants and the FBI opened the door of the van and asked Jonathan if he was "JP". Jonathan replied "who's asking". Agent Lorin flashed his badge and served the subpoena.

At least 5 people have publicly stated that they have received subpeonas to a Eugene grand jury. Are there more?

Abtreibung ist Frauenrecht

Austria, 12.12.2005 16:07

In Wien haben sich ähnlich wie in anderen Städten und Ländern christliche "LebensschützerInnen" unter den Namen "Pro Life" und "HLI" zusammengefunden, um mit Gebetsmärschen vor Abtreibungskliniken Frauen mit Gebetsseiereien, Bildchen von blutigen Föten zu belästigen und sie von einer Abtreibung abzuhalten. Fortwährender persönlicher Psychoterror trieb die Lucina/Mairo Klinik in den ökonomischen Ruin. In den Räumlichkeiten der ehemaligen Abtreibungsklinik befindet sich jetzt das "Babycaust Museum der HLI", in dem u.a. öffentlicher Holocaust-Revisionismus betrieben und der Holocaust mit Abtreibungen verglichen wird.

Aktuell scheinen sich diverse Leute vermeintlich fortschrittlicher, katholischer Organisationen gemeinsam mit militanten katholischen Vereinen in einer sogenannten "Allianz für das Leben" einen Generalangriff gegen die Fristenlösung zu führen. Nach 30 Jahren wollen sie die Fristenlösung in ihrer bisherigen, rechtlichen Form in Österreich zu Fall zu bringen. Sie nehmen dadurch bewusst in Kauf, dass weltweit Frauen an illegalen Abbrüchen krepieren!

Seit Jahren finden immer wieder Proteste gegen die Machenschaften dieser "LebensschützerInnen" statt. Zuletzt fand anlässlich des internationalen Tages gegen Gewalt an Frauen eine Spontankundgebung und Flugblattaktion vor dem Schaufenster der Human Life International (HLI) am Fleischmarkt in Wien statt.

Anlässlich der 16 Tage gegen Gewalt an Frauen findet in Wien das Fest 22 Jahre WEN-DO - feministische Selbstverteidigung statt. Und am 17. Dezember 2005 um 14:30 Uhr eine Frauendemo gegen klerikafaschistische AbtreibungsgegnerInnen direkt vor dem HLI Lebenszentrum (Postgasse 11A, 1010 Wien).

Monday is the Last Day to &quot;Save Tookie&quot;

United States, 12.12.2005 14:37

December 8th People's Clemency Hearing for Stanley Tookie Williams​ ​​​​ The execution of Stanley Tookie Williams is scheduled to take place at 12:01am on Tuesday morning. Supporters of Williams and the work that he does to show people alternatives to gang life are still calling the governor to urge him to grant clemency. Governor Schwarzenegger has the authority to commute a death sentence to life without parole. There will be events in cities all over the country in the next day. A Walk for Abolition of the Death Penalty is scheduled to leave San Francisco at 7:00am, and to go all the way to San Quentin. If clemency is not granted, there will be a vigil outside of San Quentin on Monday night December 12th.

was Carlos Rubio the first settled score of 2005 for Sandy Police?

Portland, 12.12.2005 13:38

Tantalyzing rumours of sinister dealings on the part of Sandy Police in the demise of 20 year old Carlos Rubio beg exploration.

Does in fact, there exist, possible information about the demise of Carlos Rubio and "...at least 2 others besides..." amongst the "..old timers.." around Sandy, Oregon? Is this information not possibly known to others whose identity could avoid being revealed? Indy people being the resourceful people they are, might they not be able to devise a way for those with info to share it and stay shielded.

Portlanders critique media coverage of Dec. 10 events

Portland, 12.12.2005 13:38

Well, having read here about the demonstrations and other actions about time here, and only here, I proceeded (as an experiment) to check the local "news" broadcasts, to see what their take was on what was/had happened in Stumptown today. Nothing. Absolutely fucking NOTHING happened in Portland today. So, they had to fill the time with a review of Chronicles of Narnia (Again!), and weather. No interest in those protesting, those arrested, or the reasons for such actions. No "in depth" look at the issues surrounding wearing dead animals to highlight your personal shallowness, or World Trade, or Solidarity. Nothing about the woman who was assaulted by a cop, or the others who were arrested for the crime of being in the area. No fuckin news today.

Does anyone here STILL turn to the corporate infotainment tube to learn the truth of what is happening? It will rot your brain.

Oh, and don't bother telling them, THEY KNOW. I spent hours talking with several "reporters," who readilly admit that they come here to get their news, and sometimes they are able to run some of it past their corporate masters.

additional contributions:

  • In Portland, 2000-2500 people march down the streets of downtown against the WTO, the police officers assault someone, and what does the media cover? The lurking "problem" of prostitution in SE Portland. Wow. And someone jumped off the Sellwood bridge after a police chase. How exciting! 2500 people may have marched downtown, people were arrested trying to stand up for labor rights, and...that's more important?
  • I have double-checked for the impression we have of a corporate news black-out. Google News and Yahoo News searches show NOTHING about the Portland anti-WTO demos or any other local demos in the U.S. EXCEPT that Yahoo News search takes me to the Beta Blog search, which lists Indymedia links, mostly Portland Indymedia! (I tried many combinations like "WTO demonstrations San Francisco" and others.)
  • Another prime example of the lack of journalism is the "coverage" given to yesterday's protests downtown. There was NO mention of any of it on the infotainment shows or so-called 'news' stations. I sent the Indy articles to a friend who was shocked to know that all of that was going on in her city and she was clueless. Needless to say, she will be looking on Indy for news from now on.
  • I was requested to check, and if there was any coverage on any of the channels, to record it for those who were able to be the news. There was NO coverage on any "local" channel. Instead, between inane, and insane attempts to hold the commercials together, we had a review of Narnia, couple of "stories" taken from national infotainment during the week, a lot of giggling, and of course, the obligatory dead hero, home from Iraq story.

Support Students Racially Profiled and Brutally Arrested at Campus Anti-War Protest!

Santa Cruz, CA, 12.12.2005 11:09

Last month CODEPINK, South Bay Mobilization, ANSWER, De Anza College students, faculty and others participated in a three day protest against former Secretary of State Colin Powell at De Anza College Flint Center in Cupertino. On November 11, 2005, eight students were arrested at the event; one student was arrested inside the hall for disrupting Powell's speech. The seven youth arrested outside were all youth of color. They were singled out and brutally arrested though they had not broken any law. Santa Clara County Sheriffs claim two of the students committed felonies though there were numerous witnesses who have stated the law enforcements claims are false.

The arrests seem to have been motivated by religious and racial profiling as six were visibly dressed Muslim students and one was an African American graduate student. A police officer present at the protest interviewed by a reporter said, "Many officers associate such garb to terrorists because of the training videos they see in which 'terrorists prepare themselves for Jihad and martyrdom.'"

The arrestees from the protest against Colin Powell, who have come to be known as the De Anza 8, their lawyer, and community groups will hold a press conference on December 12 at 5:00pm outside the Office of Human Relations of Santa Clara County located at 1880 Prunridge in Santa Clara (map) protesting the racial profiling that occurred on November 11, 2005. They are demanding that the charges against the De Anza 8 be dropped. Over 1,500 letters have been delivered to Santa Clara County District Attorney George Kennedy demanding that the charges against the youth be dropped. (Send an on-line message via ANSWER)

Police Riot at Schumachers

Portland, 12.12.2005 10:39

After the anti-WTO protest had ended, 40 of us went to go to Schumacher Furs. Some of us had previously been there, and we went back to get more people. We were followed by at least twenty cops. As we arrived at Schumachers Furs, many of us were angry. We screamed at the top of our lungs chants against fur. This was all happening while the Schumacher people were laughing inside and trying to take pictures of us. We became nervous when the riot police came. In a split second the police just randomly started attacking us. Great job mayor Potter, you are now making the police system as bad as it was back in the Vera Katz days, something you promised you would change.

Mostly all of us were dressed in black. We were sick of the amount of profiling that happens during protests, so most all of us were also wearing bandannas. The energy in that crowd was unimaginable, we were quite determined. The police laughed and watched us from a distance as we peacefully assembled. Then, all of a sudden, Officer Lee and his cronies interjected with the protest and told us all to clear a path. We did what he said, but that was just not enough for the pig. We asked him why he cared so much about us having a foot in their property, while here you have a much larger issue when the Schumacher people were giving people death threats. They gave us some bullshit answer, but we knew they were there just to protect the rich. [ read more ]

Mesomorphic Pigs Attack Women, Men, and Children in the Name of Profit

Officer Elmore will soon be resurrecting his role as riot porn star for the Videos from the Resistance. Because, in fact, officer Elmore is a mesomorphic asshole who has too many anger issues to allow him to make a living doing anything other than cop or possibly contract worker in Iraq. But I'm getting ahead of myself. Let me back up.

I attended the demonstration today, in solidarity with workers across the world. While there, I noticed a roving pod of riot police sticking closely to the black bloc. Officers Cox and Ismail seemed to be loaded for bear from the beginning -- cajoling and insulting people in the crowd. (Usually, the cops seem more like robots than human beings. It's unusual to hear so much nasty conversation from them.)

In any event, officers grew increasingly frustrated by their inability to figure out what the bloc was up to. It looked to me like the yellow-and-black pod had some inkling that something was up, and tried desperately to locate the ever-chimerical "Leader" of the bloc. In and out and around the crowd they wove, but the bloc continually shifted and changed and slipped through their fingers. In the end, they completely failed to notice as the bloc melted out of the crowd and went elsewhere. Where, you ask? [ read more ]

Christian Peacemakers Still Missing

DC, 12.12.2005 08:09

December 9th, 2005 Four Members of the Christian Peacemaker Teams were kidnapped almost two weeks ago. They are still missing, and apparently are still alive, despite an initial claim that they would be killed on December 8th. There has been no sign of movement by the US, UK, and Iraqi governments to cooperate with the kidnappers’ demands. The CPT however, have been hard at work to get the word out about the plight of their comrades. CPT, an NGO dedicated to non-violence has issued several press releases and statements since the kidnapping. Also, since the families revealed the identities of the hostages, there has been a flurry of activity by family members.

Save Bernie's Farm

Tennessee, 11.12.2005 17:09

On August 28, 2002, Bernie Ellis’s farm was raided by the Tennessee Marijuana Eradication Task Force, a force that included both state and federal law enforcement officers. During the ten hours the Task Force was on Bernie’s farm, two helicopters and ten ground troops combed his land, searched his home and out-buildings and confiscated farm supplies, files from his work as a public health consultant and his computer. The Task Force found a small amount of cannabis in Bernie’s home, 20-25 plants that were four to six feet tall and a number of small “clones” (under 12 inches tall) – all ready to harvest. To their surprise, they also found a proposal solicited by the New Mexico Governor’s Office for Bernie to help that state establish and operate a state-operated medical cannabis production facility.

Court agrees to review constitutional questions in the case of Mumia Abu-Jamal

United States, 11.12.2005 05:37

Supporters of Pennsylvania death row inmate and independent journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal celebrated on December 6th as the Third Circuit Court of Appeals granted two "certificates of appealabilty" to Jamal for alleged violations of constitutional rights in his 1982 trial and his 1985 state appeal. The court also called for a brief on a third point that had been previously certified for appeal.

Supporters of Pennsylvania death row inmate and independent journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal celebrated on December 6th as the Third Circuit Court of Appeals granted two "certificates of appealabilty" to Jamal for alleged violations of constitutional rights in his 1982 trial and his 1985 state appeal. The court also called for a brief on a third point that had been previously certified for appeal.

The defense has until January 17 to submit arguments that Jamal's initial trial was marred by racial bias in the selection of jurors, that prosecutor Joe McGill improperly instructed jurors in his final summation, and that presiding judge Albert Sabo was inappropriately biased against the defense in the 1985 Post-Conviction Relief Act hearing.

The possible outcomes of these appeals are myriad, and well outlined in David Lindorff's recent article for Counterpunch Magazine

The decision to review these allegations reversed two previous rulings by the Federal District Court, and as noted by journalist Jeff Mackler, marks a significant challenge to the 1996 Anti-terrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act. This controversial act, signed by President Clinton in the aftermath of the Oklahoma City bomging, severely weakened the obligation of courts to hear late-stage appeals under the writ of habeus corpus.

Editorial cartoon: &quot;Stay The Course&quot;

DC, 10.12.2005 22:09

"Stay the Course" in Iraq, the US ruling class keeps braying, and I for one hope they do, as it's the surest path towards their joining the old Soviet ruling class among History's Greatest Roadkill.
