precariopolismotherhood and remunerated work: don't let them discriminate you

The discrimination of motherhood is not eradicated in remunerated labour field. Even though it's not clear that they get any benefit, still today companies diminish their employees rights once they give birth, they put pressure and harass them to avoid their pregnancy or the exercise of their motherhood rights and even in some cases, as the Plus supermarkets, they've fired employees for maternity reasons. As has recently happened, in SEAT case, it has been intended to include the pregnant women in the dismissals list but in front of the possible avalanche of invalid dismissal lawsuits they've readmitted them. For this is needed to recall which are our rights and what to do in order to don't let them deny us the possibility of exercise them.

Philadelphia lawyers take part in nationwide &quot;Motion to Stop Deportation to Haiti&quot;

Philadelphia, 17.01.2006 19:38

On January 19, 2005, human rights lawyers across the country will file a “Motion to Stop Deportation to Haiti” in immigration courts in response to the U.S. government’s refusal to grant Haitians temporary protection from deportation. Well-documented catastrophic human rights and environmental conditions virtually guarantee a death sentence for anyone deported to Haiti. Until the Haitian government can provide for the safe return of its nationals and the rule of law returns, deportations to Haiti must stop.

Seeking input --- What should the future of OKIMC.org be?

Oklahoma, 17.01.2006 17:38

Please respond by January 22, 2006 Report for members/contributors of OKIMC.org Hello folks, As the last remaining active member of the OKIMC editorial collective, I would like to solicit the input of the users of the OKIMC.org on what the future of this endeavor should be, and whether we should continue it in its current form, whether it should be significantly changed, or whether it is time to end this project. Please read on for some of my thoughts on this... Hello folks, As the last remaining active member of the OKIMC editorial collective, I would like to solicit the input of the users of the OKIMC.org on what the future of this endeavor should be, and whether we should continue it in its current form, whether it should be significantly changed, or whether it is time to end this project. Please read on for some of my thoughts on this... The Oklahoma IMC has been going for quite awhile and started before I got involved with it. Over time it was recognized as part of the Indymedia.org network/collective and things seemed to be going pretty well. We have had a few hiccups along the way (some on the technology end of things, as we changed what IMC software we used) but for the most part things have continued on. However, on the negative side of things what was once a small community of media activists has turned into something else. Due to life changes and just the way things go, most of our key folks have moved on to other things which has left me being the guy who keeps the hosting bill paid (thanks of course to the donors who send me money when I let them know we're running short on cash) and does the administrative end of things. As far as what local news is actually being posted, it's pretty meager. The newswire mostly consists of cross-posts from conspiracists (a lot of which I hide and/or delete because I think it crosses the line into libel). Some local stuff gets posted (which I try to always get upgraded to "feature" status) but not that much original stuff even then is posted. And to boot we get massive amounts of traffic and pretty consistently exceed our bandwidth allotment with our ISP (close to 4 GB per month right now). Our host has been mighty tolerant of this thus far but I think we'll have to upgrade our account if this continues. So my question is given all of these factors, what should the future of OKIMC.org be. Here are the options as I see them: (1) We continue the course, remaining as a member of the Indymedia.org collective and maintaining an open publishing policy - If we do this, we will continue to get massive traffic (mostly from non-Okies) and will have to upgrade our hosting account. We also would have to get new volunteers to help on the editorial side of things as I'm pretty weary of having to delete material that could be libelous or otherwise illegal that conspiracists post. (2) We continue to be OKIMC.org but we change our format to be exclusively local in focus and possibly leave the Indymedia.org network altogether. - If we did this, we would no longer be an open-publishing setup but instead would be moderated to only allow Oklahoma folks to post to the website and/or only permit local news to be reported and discussed. From a tech end, we could quit using our current IMC software altogether and replace it with a blog/CMS type of thing, such as wordpress (examples of sites I currently run using Wordpress are JMBzine.com, okobjector.org, and joymennonite.org). (3) We quit this endeavor altogether - I think there is a good argument that while we've done a lot of good in the past, there are now lots of free speech outlets out there, particularly with the plethora of local political blogs, and that maybe it is time to let this project go. Of those three choices, I do not think option #1 is a good choice UNLESS more folks get involved. I don't mind to continue being the "treasurer" of OKIMC, but I don't have the time or energy anymore to be the point person for administrating this website, particularly when it comes to editing material that could leave us (or more accurately myself) exposed the legal liability Option #3 might be in the fact prove to be the best choice, but it is one that I really hate to see happen. All of the aggravations aside, I still think the IMC concept has a lot of worth and I hate to give up on it. Option #2 right now makes the most sense to me. It continues on the work of OKIMC but refines its focus to be on LOCAL news and commentary. It also would be easier to manage if there are few other volunteers and financially would be easier to pull off. Since we do not have a functioning editorial collective at this point, I think the best way to make this decision is to announce the consideration of the question on the IMC itself and also to let our past contributors and contributors know about it. If you have input on this decision please let me know by email (jmb (at) okcnlg (dot) org) or phone (405-476-5620) by Sunday, January 22, 2006. If I don't hear input by then, I'll do what I think is best. If I do hear input by then, then I will try to work with those who have input on crafting a solution that makes sense to all involved. If those offering input want to be part of the editorial collective, great, we as a group can make a decision, but if those offering input do not want to be part of the collective then I will make the decision on my own, as informed by the input given. Lastly to help in this decision making process, I've pasted in below a report on our current financial situation (this shows the fall of last year and January of this year) J.M. Branum for OKIMC.org Financial Report: Q4 2005 Transactions -$25 (balance as of Sept 30, 2005) -10 (hosting bill October 2005) -10 (hosting bill November 2005) +25 donation (nov. 14, 2005) +100 donation (Nov. 16, 2005) -10 (hosting bill December 2005) == $70 (balance of Dec. 31, 2005) Q1 2006 Transactions $70 (balance as of Dec 31, 2005) -10 (hosting bill January 2006) == $60 (balance as of January 17, 2006)

Arrive by 6:15 PM if you wish to register your opposition or support, or if you wish to testify on the plan.



One Third Isn't Enough - We Can Do Better Than That

OG&E Program Exceeds Expectations Oklahoma Gas & Electric (OG&E) reports that since launching its OG&E WindPower green pricing program on November 1, it has enrolled about 7,300 customers—about 1% of its customer base—exceeding the utility's expectations. The utility has already sold about one-third of the energy generated from its 51-MW share of the Oklahoma Wind Energy Center. Under the OG&E WindPower program, the wind energy is sold in 100-kWh monthly increments for $2, or 2.0¢/kWh. However, green power subscribers are exempt from the utility's fuel adjustment charge—currently about 0.82¢/kWh—making the effective premium for the wind power about 1.18¢/kWh.

The Future of Indymedia?

Ireland, 17.01.2006 12:38

The first part of 3 articles on the potential role of net based alternative media. This is the first part of three interlinked articles on the potential political role of net based alternative media The first part looks at American autonomist Marxist Harry Cleaver’s account of how international solidarity networks were built up around the Chiapas revolt in 1994, ‘The Zapatistas and the Electronic Fabric of Struggle’ and at the states’ response to on-line social movement organising, in particular at state actions against the Indymedia network. The second article, An Historical Overview of Media and Class Struggle argues that the full potential of the Internet for political mobilisation has yet to be realised, as societies where Internet usage is currently widespread are pretty quiescent, with relatively little in the way of social protest and class struggle by comparison with say the 1960s and 70s. This argument is made by an historical overview of the role of the media and alternative media in various instances of protest and struggle. Finally,The Internet, Communication and Horizontal Organisation looks at the role of the internet in communications, and argues that it can facilitate horizontal as opposed to hierarchal forms of social movement organising. This has a pretty narrow focus looking at the role of the internet in the West, there are also many issues related to it and attempts by authoritarian regimes to suppress its political use in the South. Furthermore, my argument is based on the assumption of a continuing growth in Internet usage, particularly in regard to the parts on communications and organising. These articles began life as an essay written over a year ago, for academic purposes, I’ve it edited for indymedia. A very reasonable criticism of it would be that it largely ignores the digital divide, that is more for reasons of space and time than anything else. Nonetheless the arguments in regard to the potential of alternative media on the net are sound. The Electronic Fabric of Struggle Cleaver’s central contention in The Zapatistas and the Electronic Fabric of Struggle is that: “While the state has all too effectively limited mass media coverage and serious discussion of Zapatista ideas, their supporters have been able, to an astonishing degree, to circumvent and offset this blockage through the use of electronic networks in conjunction with the more familiar tactics of solidarity movements” Towards the end of his essay he admits that the mere presence of information on the Internet does not assure this effect, and earlier he argues that initially at least the electronic pro-Zapatista networks were built around earlier anti-NAFTA networks. We might also consider that the E.Z.L.N. phenomenon occurred during the early 1990s crisis on the left, which made them particularly attractive to some international audiences. That is, that the E.Z.L.N.’s move away from Leninism due to the influence of the indigenous in Chiapas fitted with similar moves for different reasons from parts of what was to become their international network, most notably Italy’s Ya Basta! Moreover this was a period when the Chiapas rising struck a particularly optimistic note (for some audiences), coming against the backdrop of a massive collapse in the left, and in things large parts of the left regarded as someways good, e.g. trade union power, the Soviet Union, the Sandinistas and most national liberation movements, and social democratic Keynesianism; not just the Internet then. He argues that this national and international flow of information significantly hindered the Mexican state’s ability to isolate the Zapatistas as the first step to co-opting or destroying them. As he writes in another article: “We now know that the Mexican government's position has actually been fairly consistent ever since: a public façade of negotiations behind which the state has elaborated a highly repressive counterinsurgency program of systematic terrorism against Zapatista communities using not only every available police and military agency of the state itself but including the financing, arming and cooperation with paramilitary groups that have murdered dozens and driven thousands from their homes and villages. Some time back the Mexican magazine Proceso published a 1994 internal military document outlining this strategy including the use of paramilitaries --and every month that passes has brought more evidence of its systematic and continuing nature. The primary constraint that national and international mobilization has placed on the Mexican government has been to sometimes halt overt military operations (Spring of 1994 and 1995) and sometimes force the state to pretend to negotiate.” (My emphasis) In that article he further claims that out of the international solidarity networks for Chiapas grew the Zapatista Encounters Against Neoliberalism and For Humanity in 1996 and 1997, which were meetings gathering thousands of grassroots activists from across the world. From this sprang the Peoples’ Global Action network, which spanned several continents and organised many of the earlier anti-globalisation demonstrations, most notably a caravan of Indian farmers across Europe and the June 18th 1999 international day of protest; all this possible, due to, to a large extent, the Internet. The significance of all this I would say he overstates, most of the world’s anti-I.M.F. rioters having difficulty affording water, food and housing, let alone Internet access. Indymedia and the State. The next section will deal with how the state has attempted to hinder internet based alternative media, and following that the powerful role played by the mainstream media in social conflict and the possibilities for subverting that power through the internet. I will now turn to look at state actions against the Indymedia network, which we might consider to demonstrate the significance to which the state gives to social movement organising on-line. In the summer of 2004 Indymedia founding member Lenin Cali Najera of Equador was murdered. His colleagues suspect the robbery during which this killing took place was faked as cover for a political assassination carried out by right wing paramilitaries, such have employed this modus operandi in at least some South American states, Argentina at least, and whom, of course, usually act with the connivance of the authorities. Meanwhile in Cyprus a major national scandal took place after police admitted to investigating Petros Evdokas at the behest of the C.I.A. due to his publication of material on Indymedia Cyprus claiming American interference in the process of the ‘peace plan’ referendum on the divided island. Shortly before the protests at the Republican National Convention in New York in the fall several police agencies raided an Indymedia benefit film showing in the city. Also in the run up to those events the service provider of Indymedia New York was subpoenaed to release connections logs, in an investigation into the posting of the already publicly available details of delegates to the convention. On the 7th of October the hard drives of two Indymedia servers hosting 20 sites and a couple of radio stations were seized in London by an unknown law enforcement agency. The British government denies responsibility and the most likely suspect is the F.B.I., acting at the instigation of an Italian judge. Previous to this in Genoa, Italy, in July 2001, the Indymedia Centre established for the duration of the anti-G8 demonstration there was subjected to a violent police raid, and similar, though with less violence, happened to the Indymedia Centre established in Geneva, France, during summit protests there. In Ireland there have been several instances of the police singling for arrest and/or assault photographers/film makers, some of whom have been Indymedia volunteers. This happened at the protests at the privatisation conference taking place in the Burlington Hotel in Dublin in the fall of 2001, it also happened during the Reclaim the Streets party in Dublin in May 2002. During a subsequent trial of one of the police officers involved the defence case was that Indymedia had orchestrated the entire episode. In February 2003 one Indymedia film maker received a court injunction forbidding him from entering the environs of Shannon airport, this while he was making a documentary on military re-fuelling at the airport, and related protests. In March 2003 one photographer was arrested at the airport and charged under a public order offence, the sum total of the evidence consisting of the assertion by the arresting officer that she found having her photograph taken while arresting someone to be an “aggressive and intimidating” experience. Since this essay was originally penned over a year ago more of the same has happened, Bristol indymedia ran into trouble with the authorities, as did infoshop.org, and other cameria wielders were arrested at Shannon. In addition “our” “Justice” Minister has been denouncing indymedia.ie . I consider this to be a pattern which speaks volumes. To see it clearer, consider that in Genoa the police had innumerable sites as potential targets for a raid, all of which were more crucial to actual organising (as opposed to dissemination of information) than the Indymedia Centre, many of which would have been far easier to attack away from the glare of cameras and several of which were actually being used for criminal purposes. Yet which did they select? Obviously the distaste for being subject to public scrutiny extends further than just Garda in Co. Clare. The following article will look at the wider role of information provision. http://www.indymedia.ie/attachments/jan2006/northernstar.jpg

Baby Clothes, Who Needs Them / Where Do They Go?

Portland, 17.01.2006 11:38

We have a plethors of baby and small child clothes here at the Freecycling Center. In the last few weeks, we have had so many clothes donated we had to open up the Community Library space for donation storage. One thing that we seem to have trouble moving are baby and small child clothes.

Currently we have about 5 large milk crates full of them. We are looking for a good place (a place that will reach folks that need them and give them for free) to donate them or to raise awareness and bring folks into the store that can use them. [ read more ]

Best Of North Portland By St Johns Sentinel

I just found this checking out the St Johns Sentinal website and needed to share it. Thanx to everyone that has stopped in, donated books, or their dirty laundry. The community support for the blackrose collective space, has been both amazing, and at the same time, heartbreaking. The most rewarding & sad part of the bookstore for me is my collection of stuffed animals. I won't go into why I have such a love for them, but I started taking them out of the freebox area and hiding them amongst the bookshelfs, and little nooks and crannies. We have alot of single parent families who come in regularly with their young children to get clothes, food, and to see the joy on the childrens faces when they find a little animal pocking out from a bookshelf, it has become a game of hide and seek, and then to let them know that they can take it and give it a home (often a car, or couch). I, like them for that moment am overcome with a feeling of warmth, love and caring, it is a beautiful feeling, that I want so much for these children to have the opportunity to feel forever. But the despair & sadness of their situations hits me every single night when I put my head down to sleep..... And I know my work is just beginning... [ read more ]



December - Activists Very Active

Portland, 17.01.2006 11:38

Dispite cold temperatures, last month was a very active month for activists around the country and the world.

In a campaign organized by MoveOn.org, volunteers across the country submitted over 400,000 petitions promoting a time based withdrawal from Iraq to 286 congressional home offices.

Activists in DC are showing up at the homes and offices of Bush Admimistration officials and congresspeople singing songs, delivering petitions and demonstrating against the war.

Henry Kissinger "was shouted down and called a mass murderer several times" during his appearance at New York University and Ann Coulter walked off the stage in Connecticut after being booed.



Roller Derby Woman Beaten Bloody By Pig

Portland, 17.01.2006 11:38

There was a show at the LIQUID LOUNGE, even though the flyer said Lizard lounge, and it WASN'T free, for some of our Assassination City derby girls. I met up with Amanda outside of Elm St. Tattoo, and there was a derby girl skating from the bar across the street to the tattoo parlor. No big deal. But a cop stopped her to give her a ticket. Well, she gave some attitude, but went with it. Kept her hands on the car while he wrote her a ticket. I crossed the street to the bar, and another skater went past me, nothing happened to her, even though her friend was getting a ticket for skating in the street.... very weird. I turned back around to look at the girl and the cop, and I see him wrestling her to the ground. She's screaming, this tiny girl, is struggling, while about 50 people gather and start yelling.

precariopolismaternitat i feina remunerada: que no et discriminin

La discriminació per maternitat encara no s'ha erradicat a l'àmbit laboral remunerat. Ni que no estigui clar que hi surtin guanyant, encara avui les empreses rebaixen els drets de les seves treballadores un cop han estat mares, les pressionen i les assetgen per evitar el seu embaràs o el gaudiment dels drets de maternitat i fins i tot en alguns casos, com el dels supermercats Plus, han acomiadat treballadores per maternitat. Com recentement ha ocorregut, amb el cas de la SEAT, s'ha intentat incloure les embarassades en el el llistat d'acomiadaments i davant el possible allau de demandes per acomiadament nul les han readmès. Per això cal recordar quins són els nostres drets i què cal fer perquè no ens neguin la possibilitat del seu exercici.

precariopolismaternidad y trabajo remunerado: que no te discriminen

La discriminación por maternidad aún no se ha erradicado en el ámbito laboral. Aunque no esté claro que salgan ganando con ello, aún hoy las empresas rebajan los derechos de sus trabajadoras cuando han sido madres, las presionan y las acosan para evitar su embarazo o el disfrute de sus derechos de maternidad. Incluso en algunos casos, como el de los supermercados Plus, han despedido trabajadoras por maternidad. Como recientemente ha ocurrido, en el caso de SEAT, se ha intentado incluir a las embarazadas en la lista de despidos i ante el posible laud de demandas por despido nulo han sido readmitidas. Por eso hace falta recordar cuales son nuestros derechos y qué hay que hacer para que no nos nieguen la posibilidad de ejercerlos.

Arkansas, 17.01.2006 00:09

I have never cared very much for New Year’s Eve celebrations. In years past however, I would at least stay up until midnight to watch the new year come in. Lately however, I’ve been adverse to doing even that. Upon hearing about, or looking at the many thousands of revelers at Times Square in New York City who assemble to welcome in the new year, I simply shake my head in disbelief. What are they celebrating? I ask myself. Do they even have a clue as to what’s going on?

That is what the Lower Ninth Ward felt like. Block after block of total destruction. A complete breakdown of society. I scoffed earlier in the trip when a veteran had described the Lower Ninth as "worse than Vietnam." Once I visited I could see what he meant.

Global Warming Has Already Caused Mass Extinction in the Frog World, Who's Next?

Madison, 16.01.2006 18:08

Whole tropical frog populations have been wiped out forever as a consequence of global warming over the past 20 years, scientists reported in the journal "Nature" this week. Recorded spikes in global temperatures in the past 20 years were found to have coincided exactly with the killing off of several frog species in Central and South America, due to the spread of disease vectors with rising temperatures. The warmer air allowed the disease carrying vectors to spread the disease into areas formerly too cold to harbor the vectors. The diseases ended up decimating the populations, stopping the living evolutionary process that had been going on for eons but has now ended. Many more extinctions are likely if we don't slow the progress of global warming, said Professor Andrew Dobson, ecologist, Princeton University on Wisconsin Public Radio's Kathleen Dunn call-in show on Friday. "[It's] very naive to think that we are the last thing to go. If you were a betting person, you'd think we'd be half way down the list", said Dobson.

MLK March and Rally 2006

Portland, 16.01.2006 15:38

If you're looking for a way to celebrate and make a difference ? a day "on" instead of a day "off" ? this Martin Luther King, Jr., Day, join us for our 14th annual march and rally. It promises to be a beautiful celebration of non-violence and the positive impact it can have on the world.

The theme for this year's event is "MLK Every Day: Traveling the Road of Change Through Nonviolence." Our plans for the day include closing the caf? down at 1pm so everyone--staff, customers, and friends--can participate. We'll gather in front of the caf? between 2 and 3, making and passing out signs and getting organized. The march begins at 3pm.

St. Mary's Academy is our destination. St. Mary's address is 1615 SW 5th Ave. The rally, which begins at 4pm, will include a student essay, speakers, a Master of Ceremonies from the Sisters' community, music, and fun! Keynote speaker, Sharif Abdullah, will inspire to use non-violence to create a world that works for all. Also speaking will be Jeri Sundvall, founder of the Environmental Justice Action Group, a grassroots organization dedicated to developing and utilizing community-based leadership in people of color and low-income communities to address the issues of health, safety and environmental justice.

United Kingdom, 16.01.2006 14:38

Monday 16th January at around 4.30 am, eviction of the protest sites in Dalkeith Country Park began. Protestors are still in the trees and continuing to resist. The protest sites are opposing the building of the A68 bypass through the Park, just south of Edinburgh.

Edinburgh Tenants No Vote

Scotland, 16.01.2006 12:10

On Thursday, December 15th, 2005, Edinburgh tenants plunged the Council's much vaunted stock transfer plans into crisis with a no vote in the council’s ballot. The decisive blow to the council’s privatisation plans was rightly celebrated by tenants as a victory for people power and was quickly followed by a demand that the Council commit to direct investment in Edinburgh’s housing stock.



Round-Up of Resistance to the Asylum System in Glasgow

Scotland, 16.01.2006 12:10

This winter, Glasgow has seen an extraordinary upsurge in protest and direct action in response to the Government's inhumane treatment of asylum seekers living in the city. The campaign has brought the issue of dawn raids on asylum seekers' homes to wide attention and caused embarassment to politicians and officials by exposing their callousness to public scrutiny. More importantly, though, there're growing signs that it is starting to bring back hope, dignity and confidence to those people who the system has isolated and dehumanised.
