Earth First! Organizers' Conference and Winter Rendezvous

DIMIA conspiracy against Ali Bakhtiyari

Adelaide, 12.01.2006 04:37

#media_11687;left# The Bakhtiyari family are arguably the most high-profile and most vilified of asylum seekers to have been imprisoned for years under Australia's punitive system of mandatory detention. Ethnic Hazaras from Afghanistan, the family's cultural and national identity was challenged by the Federal Government, and used to cast doubt upon the family's credibility. The mainstream media were often complicit in the propaganda campaign against the Bakhtiyaris. Forcibly deported without proper travel documents to Pakistan in late 2004, the family now remain in a precarious position. Their case highlights fundamental problems in the system used for assessment of refugee status, including the government's wilful covering up of mistakes, by adding more lies and disinformation to already flawed information. One clear example of this is the process revealed by Refugee Review Tribunal (RRT) member Giles Short in determining the case of Ali Bakhtiyari, who had originally been granted refugee status. Mr Short preferred to use 'evidence' gathered by Australian journalists from the Age and the Sun-Herald, over official letters from the Governor of the home province of the Bakhtiyaris.

Freitag der 13. im Jänner 2006

Austria, 12.01.2006 03:07

Seit 2002 verwandelt das F13-Netzwerk an den zwei bis drei mal im Jahr wiederkehrenden, mythischen Unglückstagen die Straßen von Wien in Tage überraschender Straßenaktionen. Alle Personen und Initiativen aus dem sozialen und künstlerischen Bereich, alle Eigeninitiativen diskriminierter Gruppen und alle, die in deren Interesse handeln sind eingeladen, an jedem Freitag dem 13. eigene Ideen zu verwirklichen und so einen Beitrag zu leisten, eine Art neuen urbanen "Volxbrauch" zu entwickeln. Alle Gruppen bestimmen Ort, Tageszeit und Typus der Aktivitäten selbst. Die Aktionen richten sich gegen die soziale Ausgrenzung "unerwünschter" und "ökonomisch unnützlicher" Milieus, Gruppen und Individuen.

Am Freitag dem 13. Jänner 2006 finden den Tag über zahlreiche Aktionen statt. Den Höhepunkt bietet der subversive Karneval von unten, ein Faschingsumzug mit SängerInnen, Radical CheerleaderInnen, Clowns, JongleurInnen, PerformerInnen und vielen verkleideten oder einfach ungehorsamen Menschen. Sie verlachen die Macht und holen sich das Leben, das allen zusteht! Mit leckerer Volxküche, literweise Punsch, einem Kost-Nix-Laden auf Rädern, lauten Marchingbands und anderer Straßenmusik von Samba bis Tekkno, offenem Mikrofon, unzähligen Performances und noch vielem mehr. Alles ist möglich. Treffpunkt ist ab 15:30 Uhr am Margaretenplatz im 5. Wiener Bezirk. Abgeschlossen wird der Tag mit einem Fest im Amerlinghaus, Stiftgasse 8, 1070 Wien.

Frist’s Backroom Coup Is a Shot in the Arm for Drug Industry

Tennessee, 11.01.2006 23:09

Advocates Say Legislation is a Slap in the Face of Consumers Exploiting anxieties about avian flu, Republicans sneakily passed legislation right before the holiday recess that shields the drug industry from being held legally accountable when flu vaccines and other pharmaceuticals used to treat pandemic diseases cause death, disability or serious sickness. Majority Leader Frist attached it as a provision in a completely unrelated defense spending bill. Congress put corporate interests above the public interest and passed this unsafe, unfair, and unnecessary legislation.

They face an aggregate of 23 years in Federal Prison. A benefit and video screening will be held in Oakland on Wednesday, January 11th at 7:00pm.

Sea Shepherd: Ram and Disable Pirate Whalers

Aotearoa, 11.01.2006 21:38

The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society is planning to escalate the whaling confrontation by ramming and disabling ships of the Japanese whaling fleet to stop the illegal and ruthless slaughter of whales in the Antarctic Whale Sanctuary, and has already sideswiped a Japanese whaling supply ship, the Oriental Bluebird.

"What part of the word ‘sanctuary’ do the whalers not understand?" said Captain Paul Watson from onboard the Sea Shepherd ship Farley Mowat. "The whalers have assaulted whale defenders with water cannons and wooden poles. The whalers have rammed two Greenpeace ships [1,2] and attempted to ram the Farley Mowat. With every attack the whalers plead innocence. The whalers are far from innocent. They are criminals involved in a criminal operation and they must be stopped."

Fact Finding Mission: Day 3

Fact Finding Mission: Day 4

Philadelphia, 11.01.2006 20:38

Today we visited Pensacola, Florida, which was devastated by Hurricane Ivan 19 months ago. Although inadequate, the crisis response from both the federal and state Bush governments were far superior to New Orleans’ experience following Hurricane Katrina. Some believe that this quick response has to do with the with fact that Pensacola has a heavy military presence – including several bases – and a big tourist industry sitting on the beaches of the Gulf.

The hidden price of Atlanta’s much ballyhooed downtown revitalization can be found at the corners of Peachtree and Pine. Not far from the city’s newly christened $200 million Aquarium sits the Task Force for the Homeless, a converted warehouse sheltering 500 to 700 hundred homeless persons per night.

International citizens' commission attempts to serve indictments at White House

DC, 11.01.2006 18:08

Activists representing the International Commission of Inquiry on Crimes Against Humanity Committed By the Bush Administration tried to deliver an indictment against George W. Bush today at the White House. While the papers -- carried to the gate by former CIA Analyst Ray McGovern -- were ultimately not accepted, about two dozen participants and supporters attracted the attention of media, tourists, and the secret service as they held a press conference and then approached the White House's Northwest Appointment Gate.

Tuesday Counter Recruitment Rally Details

Portland, 11.01.2006 14:38

The Tuesday at 5:30 counter recruitment protest has drawn a dissenter. I noticed him immediately upon arrival. He was different because he stood alone wearing a white shirt, jacket and a '40's brim hat. We set up candles, and posters in front of the recruitment office at 1317 NE Broadway. A number of our supporters are from Veterans for Peace. When the dissenter shouted his opinions, one vet who had been a medic in Viet Nam, shouted back. They were loud, and got up chest-to-chest. A nonviolence proponent said he told them if they used fists, he would step between them. They didn't, but the vibrations were chilling! They continued shouting until our vet went to withdraw money for the dissenter to go to Walter Reed Hospital.

&quot;Just Us&quot; Action Against SCPD Spying

Santa Cruz, CA, 11.01.2006 10:08

01/10/06 - Around 100 Santa Cruzans showed up at the City Council today to demand a denouncement and investigation into the Santa Cruz Police Department's infiltration of a local group's organizing meetings.

Far from being limited to the individuals that were spied on, protesters included former mayors, the ACLU, artists, peaceniks, high school students, UCSC Students Against War members that were recently spied on by the Pentagon, and a local man who fled fascist Czechoslovakia.

From the "Just Us" Campaign and Rally announcement:

"The Santa Cruz Police Department was discovered infiltrating and conducting undercover surveillance of two of the meetings of the organizers of the Last Night DIY Parade, which was a totally peaceful, positive, and creative event in downtown Santa Cruz on New Years Eve!!..."

"This event was organized by 'just us' - 'just us' the people who live here, work here, and try to create positive and peaceful change - if this group can be spied on, so can any of the rest of our groups."

Clarence Ray Allen: Due to be Executed Jan 17, 2006

Santa Cruz, CA, 11.01.2006 06:10

California is speeding up executions. Clarence Ray Allen is next.

Clarence Allen is currently 75 years old and will turn 76 one day before his scheduled execution. He is very infirm, has suffered from a heart attack and diabetes and uses a wheelchair. He will be forced to walk the final few feet to the death chamber at San Quentin.

The prosecution's case rests primarily on the testimony of some of the accomplices involved in the second crime. They have all since stated at one time or another that they lied at Mr. Allen's 2nd trial. That, plus the fact that Mr. Allen is an American Indian has some very concerned that his execution is unjust. Others simply say that while there is no excuse for how the victims died, the death penalty is wrong and Mr. Allen should be given Clemency. Governor Schwarzenegger has refused to hold any kind of Clemency hearing for Mr. Allen. [ Who is Clarence Ray Allen? (.pdf) ]

There is a rally planned in San Francisco for Thursday, January 12. There is also going to be a rally at San Quentin on Monday, January 16, night of the execution. [ Fyler (.pdf) ] It is also quite likely that there will be a Death Penalty Focus vigil at the town clock in downtown Santa Cruz on the night of the execution.

Tenncare Activsts Gather to Demand Reversal of Cuts and Expansion of Access to Care

Tennessee, 11.01.2006 00:09

Tenncare Protests Begin Anew Nashville, TN: On the opening day of a special session concerning ethics, about forty Tenncare activists gathered in the lobby of the State Legislature to demand a reversal of the Tenncare cuts and expanded access to health care for all Tennesseans. Don Duvall, who spent six months at the State Capital last year protesting the Tenncare cuts, said he was there to send a message, "We are going to let the legislators know that there are a lot of Tenncare enrollees who are dissatisfied and scared. We are talking about people here, we are not talking about numbers. This is the most important thing going on in the entire world as far as I am concerned and I hope the public gets involved." The protesters held a silent vigil while one of them read the names of enrollees who had lost their coverage in the previous year. State Legislators had to pass the protesters in order to get to the start of the special three week session on ethics.

Justice Denied: A History of the Walker Trial

San Francisco Bay Area, 10.01.2006 15:08

The manslaughter trial of State Bureau of Narcotics Enforcement Agent Michael Walker for the February, 2004 killing of Rudy Cardenas was a sensation in San Jose. After a high-speed chase through downtown, Walker shot Cardenas, a father of five, in what many thought was a clear case of criminal police violence. The Deputy District Attorney, Lane Liroff, became kind of a hero to those who attended the trial, but he was unable to win a conviction. On the day of the verdict, Rudy's daughter Regina Cardenas said she was "Completely appalled. We didn’t think [acquittal] was a possibility at all." Indybay writer/photographer Peter Maiden covered the trial.

Some WTC History You Might Not Know

Portland, 10.01.2006 14:08

I lived in New York in the 1960's, when the twin towers were planned and just going up. The 60's was an era of intense urban destruction and frantic build-up in New York. Some of the midtown areas cleared and targeted for "development" looked like they had been bombed, while other outlying residential areas, red-lined by the banks, decayed into abandoned free-fire zones.

I left New York in 1971 before the twin towers became the prominent feature of the Manhattan skyline. They were not part of my New York, I am glad to say, for I think I would have resented this development as I did some other new structures, like the hideous Pan Am Building that was stuck up over Park Avenue and Grand Central Station.

The area targeted for the WTC included a neighborhood I loved called Radio Row. The district began in the 1920's and grew into an experimenter's dream world of many blocks where exotic surplus electronics, the fall-out of defense technology, spilled out into the street. The electronics storekeepers organized. God knows how many other downtown communities organized. They got little coverage in The Times. All resistance was crushed.
