Tenants Fight Back Against Displacement

Chicago, 29.12.2005 17:08

Nowe Miasto[permalink] As the rich grab up every piece of land they can on Chicago’s South side, thousands of low-income people are being pushed out of the neighborhoods they call home. Powerful institutions like the University of Chicago and its local partner The Woodlawn Organization are colluding with Mayor Daley to subject neighborhoods like Woodlawn to a feeding frenzy by greedy developers - a nightmare for families who can no longer afford skyrocketing rents and property taxes. But as the tenants of the Kimbark Tenants Association are showing, you don't have to just pack up - you can fight back. Read more.

40 Million Dead: Animals Tortured and Murdered for Vanity

Chicago, 29.12.2005 17:08

FFF [permalink] On Friday, November 25th, approximately 120 Chicago animal rights activists came out in force for the annual Fur Free Friday march. Despite the bitter cold and a heavy police presence, activists congregated in Daley Plaza before marching onto fur-supporting businesses in Chicago. The march was dedicated to animal liberationist prisoner Peter Young.

At the rally preceding the march, activists and other passers-by were educated to the horrors of the fur industry via bullhorn:

"Each year over 40,000,000 animals are killed by the fur industry. These animals die by gassing, trapping, anal or vaginal electrocution and other equally barbaric, grisly methods."

After visiting and agitating both consumers and business owners at brand-name companies such as Marshall Field's, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Bloomingdales, and upscale furriers such as Andriana Furs and Elan's Furs, the march ended with a rally at Water Tower Plaza at Chicago & Michigan where Chicago Soy Dairy served vegan hot cocoa. Activists were asked to not let the day's events be their only action in support of animals for the upcoming year. It was stated that one march wasn't going to stop the fur industry, but rather that a sustained campaign, utilizing a diversity of tactics, would bring the industry to its knees.

To get involved, e-mail or and ask to be added to the announce list to be kept up to date for future animal rights actions taking place in Chicago. Read the full article here.

In the Courts: Members of the Arlington Heights 5 Re-arrested and More

Chicago, 29.12.2005 17:08

arrest [permalink] On December 1st, 2005, three of the five defendants in the Arlington Heights 5 arraignment were arrested for tardiness to court because of traffic and weather conditions, according to the People's Newswire.

Judge Joseph J. Urso, the presiding judge of the Third Municipal District located in Rolling Meadows, IL, ordered arrest warrants for the four absent defendants just before three of them arrived. As of this writing one arrest warrant remains for an activist who did not show up for court.

National Lawyers Guild lawyer James Fennerty informed the court that the defendants had arrived and the judge subsequently had them arrested and taken for processing. The arrestees were taken to Cook County Jail at 26th & California in Chicago. Bail was set at $500 apiece.

According to one defendant, two of the arrestees were released around 1am and the third around 2am after being held in custody for nearly 17 hours. The five activists are currently being offered a plea bargain of thirty days in jail, most likely at Cook County, which they are contesting.

Defendants would like as much support as possible at their next hearing:

The Arlington Heights 5
Location: District 3, 2121 Euclid Avenue, Rolling Meadows, IL
Room: 104
Date: Tuesday, February 14, 2006
Time: 8:30am

Another activist, Giuseppe, was arrested and banned from DePaul University's campus. He requests the attendance of other activists at his trial.

Location: 555 West Harrison
Date: Monday, January 9, 2006
Time: 9:00am

Some victories in court earlier in the week for Chicago activists included a DePaul Students Against the War activist having his citation dropped for swearing at Mayor Richard M. Daley at the Colombus Day Parade and two activists having their charges dropped for obstruction at the Anarchist Halloween Parade. Read the original article here.

For other ways to help or anyone who was a witness to the arrests of the Arlington Heights 5, please email streetmilitant (at) and EricAntiFa (at) with a phone number or email address you can be reached at. Anyone with photographs or footage of the arrests will be especially useful. Both the Arlington Heights 5 and Giuseppe request donations for their legal defenses.

CTA Turns Down Discounted Venezuelan Oil, Raises Fares Instead

Chicago, 29.12.2005 17:08

CTA Fare Card="1" align="right" HSPACE=3 VSPACE=1> [permalink] Chicago, Dec 28 (TNS) - The Chicago Transit Authority is refusing an opportunity to alleviate commuting costs for hundreds of thousands in the Windy City's low-income neighborhoods. Instead of accepting deeply discounted fuel from the Venezuela-owned Citgo Petroleum Corporation, the city is instead raising fares to solve budget shortfalls.

In an October meeting with representatives from the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA), the city's Department of Energy and other city officials, Citgo unveiled a plan to provide the Chicago with low-cost diesel fuel. The company's stipulation, at the bidding of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, was that the CTA, in turn, pass those savings on to poor residents in the form free or discounted fare cards.

But two months later, despite claims of a looming budget crisis, the CTA president "has no intent or plan to accept the offer," according to CTA spokesperson Ibis Antongiorgi. She gave no explanation. Read More

X-Mas Eve Schumacher Fur Demo Was Amped!

Portland, 29.12.2005 01:38

With a long anticipated noise variance permit In Defense of Animals had acquired to use a bull horn for the Christmas Eve fur demonstration, the Schumacher Fur Co. owners thought they were going to beat the activists at their own game. But once again they were left shamed and looking stupid.

When around 30 dedicated anti-fur activists arrived at SW 9th and Morrison, Greg Schumacher had rented, no doubt at considerable cost, four huge speakers on tripods which were blaring obnoxious Christmas tunes to drown out the activist's bull horn and raised voices.

Undeterred, activists started chanting with messages like, "Stop the anal electrocution, stop the pain, Schumacher Fur is to blame!" That's when the furriers got amped and turned up the volume to ear drum shattering levels. I can't overstate how loud the music got; imagine being in the front row of at a hip hop show when you can almost feel your teeth vibrating from the sound waves. The volume was lowered slightly when a couple bicycle cops arrived, but still the volume was clearly beyond anything allowed by city ordinance, even if they had a permit, which states that you can use amplification as long as it's not audible more than 150 feet away. This music could be easily heard several blocks away!

Nashville Metro Council Endorses Jesus

Tennessee, 29.12.2005 01:09

#media_4025;left#On December 21st, the Nashville Metropolitan Council passed a resolution affirming that Jesus was "an actual man." I kid you not. I think it's safe to assume that the Christian Governing Body means Jesus was a macho heterosexual white man who would be driving an SUV and living in Belle Meade, with a wife and two children, if only he were alive today. Jesus sure wouldn't be wearing sandals and living amongst the poor cuz then he'd wouldn't have no health insurance like all those other bums. He'd be too sick to save the world. He sure wouldn't be hangin' with a bunch of male disciples cuz then people would think he was gay. The Music City USA Metro Council went so far as to say that Jesus "impacted" the United States of America more than the rest of the world.

Conflicto en las canteras de Alhaurín: Crisis de un modelo de desarrollo

estrecho / madiaq, 29.12.2005 00:08

#file_1#La orden de cierre de 4 canteras por el Tribunal Superior de Justicia de Andalucía volvió a poner en primera plana un conflicto que se arrastra desde hace décadas entre las demandas de asociaciones ecologistas y vecinales y el peligro de una crisis económica en el sector de la construcción en Málaga, con la consecuente pérdida de puestos de trabajo.

Tras años de intenso trabajo, las asociaciones vecinales y ecologistas de Alhaurín y de Málaga celebran que por fin se hayan oído sus demandas ante uno de los mayores atropeyos ecológicos que existe en España.

#file_2#Por otro lado, el cierre de las canteras ilegales puede dejar en la calle a centenares de trabajadores y amenaza a miles de trabajadores precarios de la construcción, que ven que ante la falta de materiales sus contratos se terminan de un día para otro.Según CCOO, más de 10.000 trabajadores del sector de la construcción en la provincia de Málaga han visto finalizados sus contratos tras la huelga en las canteras, paro que afecta al 90 por ciento de las obras con paradas parciales o totales.

Se trata de una muestra de una serie de crisis ecológicas y económicas que amenazan a Málaga tras años de neoliberalismo salvaje, donde se ha devastado el territorio a raíz de la especulación y el negocio inmobiliario y cuyo mercado de trabajo se asienta en la construcción, un sector marcado por la precariedad laboral y la irregularidad y sujeto a los vaivenes de la demanda inmobiliaria y los tipos de interes.

Alito Helped Quash Black Panther Lawsuit Against the Gov't

DC, 28.12.2005 23:11

The National Archives has released notes and documents from Judge Alito, nominee for the Supreme Court, advising the government not to send a Black Panther lawsuit to the Supreme Court. According to Alito, the only exception would be to send a message "to prevent the harassment of present and former public officials through meritless litigation." Alito then went on to help write the legal brief for the Supreme Court to dismiss the lawsuit. The Panthers sued Bush Senior, the FBI and the CIA, for conspiring to destroy the Black Panthers. Alito Documents and Notes Related to Black Panthers Lawsuit Today, environmental groups, including Sierra Club, Greenpeace, declared their opposition to the nomination of Alito to the Supreme Court.

Trouble Down Under - Greenpeace &amp; Sea Shephard Battle Whalers

Portland, 28.12.2005 06:39

Make no doubt about it, there is a MIDWAY type naval battle ocurring between Australia and Antarctica. A fleet of Japanese whalers are intent on harpooning to death any whale they see and these boats are being opposed by Greepeace and Sea Shepherd vessels. To see a first hand picture of the harpooning of a whale see Greenpeace. Although these incidents are being widely covered on Oceania Indymedia there is no news of this in the Northern Hemisphere. Remember that once there were abundant numbers of whales in the Northern Pacific. But these were long ago decimated by whaling fleets. Now they come down South, to a designated Sanctuary.

Neighborhood Public Radio is coming to Portland on January 5th as part of red76's Ghost Town project. We are now belatedly, but actively, soliciting your participation in this endeavor. NPR will be operating a radio station from the evening of January 5th until the morning of January 10th. During that time we hope to feature the contributions of a wide variety of Portland residents. Though we will likely be under the umbrella of an "art" context we do not intend to be limited by this notion. If you have something interesting to say about Portland and it's political, cultural, economical situation then we want to hear from you. If you have a killer collection of music that you want to play for people to hear, we want to hear from you. If you know a group of teenage troublemakers who would soil their pants for an opportunity to be on the local Clear Channel Affiliate... send 'em our way. We will be broadcasting from a store front very near the Welcoming Center/ Clothing Exchange [338 NW 6th Avenue]... so passersby will ideally be interacting with us as we broadcast. It will be far more entertaining than the Today show, we promise.

February 6th is coming! Support free speech? Then support the SHAC 7!

Wednesday, May 26th of 2004 marked a quiet turning point in the history of free speech in this country. While most people were still comfortably asleep and the first rays of sunlight were streaming over the horizon, Federal Agents were preparing to arrest people for crimes of terror. All across the country members of Joint Terrorism Task Forces crept across lawns and approached front doors with guns drawn. Before long they had captured their quarry: seven animal rights activists.

These activists were not accused of making bombs, burning down buildings, killing people, or even lesser crimes such as trespass. In fact, not one of them is accused of a single physical act. Their charges stem from one thing; speech. Read More [ shac7 ]

The number of protestors who turned up outside the Royal Infirmary was larger than organisers had hoped, drawing support from passers-by. The protest is continuing to build a petition to make the council have a referendum on the issue.

Global Warming Wrap-up for 2005

The Bike Mechanic Apprenticeship Program at the Community Cycling Center in Northeast Portland is currently searching for new applicants for enrollment. The next orientation is happening Monday, January 9 at 9 am ! This program is designed to provide job training and work experience to low-income and unemployed adults.

By the end of the program, participants will have gained the set of skills and experience necessary to work professionally as a bicycle mechanic. Additionally, participants will acquire general job skills applicable to any field that will benefit them in finding well-paying employment. The program primarily targets women and people of color who are underrepresented in the bike mechanic industry.

Students gain experience working with the public by teaching volunteers and assisting customers. At the successful completion of the program, apprentices receive an official bicycle mechanic certification from the Community Cycling Center. Participants also benefit from personalized guidance in seeking out future employment including tapping into our network of bike shop connections.
