Protest Manassas City’s Ordinance Against the Family

DC, 10.01.2006 06:10

The City of Manassas, Virginia approved an ordinance that took effect December 5, 2005, which changes the definition of what constitutes a family, with the intent of restricting the number of persons that inhabit a dwelling within the city. To be in compliance with this new regulation, only parents, children, two relatives of the second degree (that is, two relatives who are cousins, brothers, sisters, or parents of the home-owner), and one person not related may live in the home. 5:30PM, January 9, 2005 Manassas City Hall, 9027 Center Street

Sex and Politics Make Strange Symbiotic Bedfellows

Oklahoma, 10.01.2006 05:09

Why are gay men in Oklahoma City reduced to a more strict interpretation of the First Amendment righ Homophobes are furious that the Lawrence decision removed a major club with which they could use against gay people. They will continue to use what remaining weapons they can find in their arsenal to defeat our drive for gay equality.

They will continue to use what remaining weapons they can find in their arsenal to defeat our drive for gay equality. Sex and Politics Make Strange Symbiotic Bedfellows (Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA) The arrest in Oklahoma City of Southern Baptist minister Lonnie Wayne Latham, known as "Luke" to his first-name friends, has brought to wide national attention not only his glorious, sweaty-palmed, wet-armpit-inducing hypocrisy that the fundamentally challenged are prone to exercise, but also the symbiotic intersection of casual sex and politics. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/01/04/AR2006010402377.html http://www.channeloklahoma.com/news/5887178/detail.html?treets=okl&tid=2652854780813&tml=okl_12pm&tmi=okl_12pm_1_12000201062006&ts=H Mr. Latham was arrested in Oklahoma City on the night of January 3, and was charged with soliciting a lewd act from an undercover policeman who was in the predominately gay club district to investigate reports from motorists complaining of curbside solicitations. According to wire service stories and the Oklahoman newspaper, which quoted police reports, Mr. Latham followed the unmarked police car where the two drivers then stopped at the parking lot of a vacant office building. Mr. Latham then engaged the undercover policeman in conversation which included an invitation to return to Mr. Latham's motel room for oral sex. The police report says there was no offer of or exchange of money. Mr. Latham contends he was ministering his religious counsel and he is a victim of a police setup. Since his arrest, Mr. Latham has resigned his senior minister position at south Tulsa Baptist Church as well as his executive committee seat on Southern Baptist Convention. Did Mr. Latham also have to relenquish the use of a 2005 Mercedes which was briefly impounded at the time of his arrest? Mr. Latham is, or was, a strong supporter of the disproven idea held in fundamental religious circles that teaches gay men and women can change their sexual orientation if they would just turn themselves over to the god of the fundamentalist. It must be a hard lesson to learn--to practice what one preaches--since in this case Lonnie "Luke" has failed his lesson, who knows how many times? It must be difficult if an outspoken man of the cloth is unable to resist some out-of-town cruising and uses a nickname. Perhaps that's why so few gay people make that leap of "faith", which means believing in something for which there is no evidence. It shows the good sense of most gay people who realize that religion cannot be used as an excuse for personal responsibility. Now here's where the politics, in the disguise of police entrapment, comes in. The United States Supreme Court case of Lawrence v. TX (2003) overturned sodomy laws in all states. That decision said that if there is no commercial interest, and if the people involved are consenting adults, then private sexual activity is not illegal. So here's the kicker: Is the invitation for an anonymous encounter between two same-gender adults with the intent of private sexual _expression to be enacted in a rented motel room considered an act of sodomy in light of the Lawrence decision? It's up to Oklahoma County District Attorney Wes Lane, who by the way is up for re-election in 2006, to decide whether to file the lewdness charge against Lonnie "Luke". Will Mr. Lane see that the lewdness charge in this case is irrelevant in light of Lawrence, which will create precedence that will benefit all private encounters between all people regardless of gender? Will he allow the identical religious persuasions which Mr. Lane and Lonnie "Luke" share to intervene, telling Lonnie "Luke" to go and sin no more, using the ruse of insufficient evidence to dismiss the case? Should that happen, then all same-gender encounters will be at risk for continuing undercover entrapments as this case illustrates. To my knowledge, the Oklahoma City police department does not use female undercover agents to entrap male customers at predominately straight bars or other opposite-gender meeting places. Aren't straight men allowed unfettered association with the opposite-gendered in a social setting until they display unwanted conversation or activity? Why are gay men in Oklahoma City reduced to a more strict interpretation of the First Amendment right of association? Make no doubt about it: Homophobes are furious that the Lawrence decision removed a major club with which they could use against gay people. They will continue to use what remaining weapons they can find in their arsenal to defeat our drive for gay equality.

Protesters Gather at Senate Majority Leader Frist' Tennessee Office to Say 'No Alito'

Tennessee, 10.01.2006 04:10

Concerns Expressed About Church/State Issues and a Woman's Right to Choose Nashville, TN: On the opening day of nomination hearings concerning right-wing conservative Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court of the United States, about fifteen protesters came to Senate Marjority Leader Bill Frist' office in Nashville to hold signs and hand out flyers about issues related to the separation of church and state and expressing concerns about a woman's right to choose to have an abortion, two key issues which they are concerned a right wing Samuel Alito will tip the balance on if confirmed to the Supreme Court. The protesters gathered on the busy road in front of Frist' office for the duration of the evening rush hour.

PhillyIMC Coverage from Fact-Finding Tour of the South

United States, 10.01.2006 01:37

Members of the PhillyIMC have joined the Poverty Initiative on a fact-finding tour of the South. The group, which also includes 40 Columbia Social Work and Union Seminary students, is meeting with community groups, evacuees, and politicians in five cities to document first-hand the struggle against poverty that Katrina has brought to the nation's attention. The U.S. is the richest nation in the history of the world, yet 45 million have no health insurance, soup kitchen visits are up 150%, and child homelessness is at an all time high. PhillyIMC is highlighting the grassroots efforts that offer real solutions to poverty in this country.

Fact-Finding Mission: Day 2

Philadelphia, 09.01.2006 20:38

Today was the second day of the Philadelphia IMC’s fact finding mission on poverty, race, and injustice in the U.S. South. We began our day at the Ebenezer Baptist Church, the home church of Martin Luther King, Jr. The Church and its surrounding grounds and visitor’s center are not only spiritual markers, but also have enormous historical and political significance for members of our delegation. It was in these spaces that King’s analysis developed and transformed, and where he perfected the praxis of incorporating spiritual growth with worldly acts to transform society. At the end of his life King began to envision a powerful new movement of poor people from all backgrounds that could be unleashed to end poverty in this country. This thinking and analysis is an important component of the Poverty Initiative at Union Theological Seminary, and this entire delegation.



Asamblea preparatoria mayday sur 06 en granada

estrecho / madiaq, 09.01.2006 19:07

Este fin de semana, 14 y 15 de Enero, se celebra en Granada, en el CSO Casa de los 15 gatos, la primera asamblea preparatoria del mayday sur 06 :::
La [[Mayday Parade]] es una convocatoria que se viene celebrando en distintos lugares de europa desde el 2001, y que pretende reinterpretar la fiesta-reivindicación del primero de mayo conforme a los nuevos sujetos que poblan las distintas realidades laborales y vitales.

Una constelación de precari@s, remunerd*s y no, con y sin papeles, que luchan contra y desde su condición precaria.
El año pasado, en el [[euromaydaysur05]] l@s precari@s del sur ya salieron a la calle, una auténtica mani-fiesta-acción; y esta iniciativa, que constituye un medio de visibilización de las nuevas formas de rebeldía, movimientos y prácticas, amenaza con seguir haciéndose cada vez más fuerte.
Lo mismo ocurre en distintos lugares de europa; y con estas prácticas se está tejiendo una red de movimientos, de investigación y de cooperación en contínuo proceso, que lucha por unos derechos básicos de una manera heterogénea y articulada, desde las singularidades propias que estructuran nuestras realidades cotidianas.
L@s precari@s del sur se rebelan! Mayday mayday!

Sumac Cafe in crisis

United Kingdom, 09.01.2006 18:38

The Sumac Cafe is in crisis, due to a shortage of volunteers. It is in danger of closing and an important meeting is planned to look at possible solutions. These might include reinventing the nature of the cafe, perhaps doing more 'special nights', such as the monthly People's Kitchen events, instead of serving the breakfasts during weekends.

The meeting will be held on Friday 13th January, 7pm at the Sumac Centre, 245 Gladstone Street, Forest Fields, Nottingham, NG7 6HX. All people with an interest in the cafe, or ideas about how it could or should be run, are most welcome.

After three days of obstructing the whale hunt by placing inflatable zodiacs between whales and the harpoon, the Nisshin Maru rammed the Greenpeace ship, Arctic Sunrise.

We live in a Police State

Portland, 09.01.2006 11:38

If you go outside of your house for long enough you will see the oppressive police state all around you. I live in Salem, a small town in comparison to most larger cities and I can see the police state. Recently I went downtown on my bike to one of the local bike shops. I was obeying all of the oppressive laws that pertain to the downtown sector, when I went maybe 20 feet onto the sidewalk where the bike shop was I noticed a pig on a bike, ON THE SIDEWALK! As soon as he saw me he biked over to me on the sidewalk for about 2 blocks and demanded to see all of our Id's. I asked him what we were being stopped for and he told us that we were riding our bikes on the sidewalk. So I said to him, "um weren't you just on the sidewalk also. He said "well I'm law enforcement and I'm not bound by that law." He rambled on some more about how he took special training so he could ride on the sidewalk. So I asked to see his certificate of training and he started to stumble over his words. I said that I also had special training. He took our Id's and proceeded to write tickets and threaten to confiscate our bikes if he caught us doing again. Now I got angry and started to talk to the oppressor about my rights and equality under the law. I said "if you get to ride on the sidewalk so do I." He just laughed and said this wasn't 1776.

Missing persons and the cops

The other day, I had a very uncomfortable dilemma. I admit I probably handled it badly. I'd love to hear advice from others about alternatives I could have pursued.

The problem was, my father went missing for several days. He is getting along in years, has some mild dementia, and is prone to getting confused and losing his bearings sometimes. He also suffers some vision impairment. I worry that he could get injured or taken advantage of by someone if he's not careful.

Now, I generally know better than to deal with cops, if I can possibly help it, most of the time. Because people who need their help all too often wind up dead at their hands. And, having done a lot of observation and thinking about the matter, I think I have a pretty good inkling about why that is. [ read more >> ]

What We Don't Know Can Hurt Us

Portland, 09.01.2006 11:38

There is an bill in Congress to investigate Bush for impeachable crimes. Did you know that? If not, maybe you should be asking your local media outlets why you don't know about it.

There are now eight members of Congress who have put their names to a bill calling for a special committee of the House to investigate impeachable crimes by the Bush administration. To date, all of them are Democrats.

So far, you'd be hard-pressed to know about any of this--including the very fact that Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.), the low-key and soft-spoken but dedicated ranking minority member of the House Judiciary Committee, had even submitted such a bill--as well as two companion bills calling for censure of both Bush and Cheney for abuse of power.



Four months since the murder of Fouad Kaady

Portland, 09.01.2006 11:38

Well, it is now four months since Officer Bergin (Sandy P.D.) and Deputy Willard (Clackamas County S.O.) took it upon themselves to terminate the young life of Fouad Kaady, who was much beloved by his community, and who will be deeply missed.

His killers reasoned, that since he was naked, burning, and bleeding, they would somehow be turned into werewolves if they touched him, so they tasered him, and when that did not have the desired tranquilizing effect, they shot and killed him, knowing that he was unarmed, and unable to inflict any harm on anyone (a citizen had already dumped him on his ass once, just a short time earlier, out of the same fear, and lived through the encounter).

Naturally, these paragons of courage were exonerated by a not so grand jury, which was fed it's "facts" by the hopefully soon to be ex District Attorney. These tried and true citizens could find no fault in killing an injured, unarmed, naked and bleeding human being.

New Challenges for the Antiwar Movement in 2006: How Some Arguments Against the War Might be Twisted to Prolong It

Madison, 09.01.2006 08:09

It is one thing to point out that the current war has failed to bring democracy to Iraq, and has increased the risk of civil war in Iraq. But the peace movement should not let criticism of the invasion become a justification for increased U.S. interference in Iraqis' internal affairs, nor for a troop redeployment that would step up the bombing and claim more Iraqi lives. It is one thing to point out that the Occupation has heightened the regional ambitions of Iran and prospects for theocratic rule in Iraq. But we should not inadvertently let our criticisms of the last war to become the seeds of a new war.

Planning Officer insists on wider public consultation for incinerator expansion

United Kingdom, 09.01.2006 00:38

Waste Recycling Group (WRG) was not been entirely honest with their original planning application and 'omitted' vital details. Following a meeting requested by the Planning Officer with NAIL and WRG, we presented our objections and requested the omitted information. WRG were requested by the Planning Officer to provide these details. WRG have yet to submit this information, although it is expected imminently. The Planning Officer has said that, due to the importance of this further information, he will insists on a further 21 days public consultation period. This means that a planning decision is not likely until April this year.

Over Xmas a delegation from Sheffield visited the affected region helped by the JKLF. The daily hardships faced by survivors in Balakot, Muzaffrabad, Lagubura and Kamsar were plain to see as was the determination of the aid workers and victims of the quake. Despite the scale of the disaster and the incredible storys of survival, the mainstream media is giving little coverage to what is now a second catastrophe.
