Prosecute 'massage parlour' rapists

Romania, 20.01.2006 11:07

We are facing a new slave trade, whose victims are tortured, terrified East European girls rather than Africans. And the trade will keep growing, despite media exposure, until we find our William Wilberforce.
The number of men paying for sex in this country has doubled in the past decade. No fewer than 4,000 massage parlours - the modern euphemism for brothels - ply for trade. Books such as Belle de Jour and laddish accounts of paid-for sex in magazines glamorise the modern growth of prostitution; but for many young women who think they are coming to Britain to work as waitresses, au pairs or cleaners, the reality is very different.



Eutanasia - crima sau drept inalienabil?

Romania, 20.01.2006 11:07

Problema in cauza este una extrem de sensibila.

E firesc, deoarece sunt vizate limitele libertatii umane. Cu parere de rau, la noi, oamenii sunt invatati din frageda copilarie sa aiba frica de libertate. Cu cit mai putine drepturi exista, cu atit acestia se simt mai in siguranta. E mai bine, nu-i asa, ca in privinta drepturilor, a libertatilor umane, deciziile finale sa fie luate de fiarele moraliste: preotii, samanii, pedagogii, procurorii, politistii, gardienii, psihologii, psihiatrii, bioeticienii si alte cadre abilitate (cer scuze de la cei pe care am uitat sa-i nominalizez).

Free software, Big Oil and Venezuelan politics

This month, a new law goes into effect in Venezuela mandating that all government agencies migrate their information technology infrastructure to free, or open-source, software. While it has not been uncommon in recent years for nations in the developing world to cast a leery eye on the licensing fees and technological dependency associated with relying on proprietary software made by Western corporations, Venezuela's determination to move everything to free software may be the most extreme example yet of the emerging global politics of open source.

#media_4854;left# En el noveno día de huelga de hambre el trabajador ha tenido que ser urgentemente llevado al hospital Carlos Haya de Málaga dada las dolencias en sus cuerpo, llagas en la lengua y paralización de las piernas. Por otra parte, el juzgado de lo Social número 10 de Málaga ha dictado la sentencia que estaba esperando el trabajador, por la cual se dictaminará que entidad debe resarcir los abonos que padece por la incapacidad que mantiene tras la brutal paliza que presuntamente le propinó la dirección de la compañía de autobuses Trapsa. No obstante según la familia "no sabrán el resultado de la sentencia hasta dentro de tres días" por lo que "el trabajador retomará la huelga de hambre en caso de que no sea favorable". El trabajador recibió una brutal paliza el trece de Septiembre del 2004 cuando se encontraba realizando una llamada en las inmediaciones de la firma de autobuses donde trabajaba, de este modo fue ingresado en el hospital clínico Universitario de Málaga con pérdidas de conciencia intermitentes y politraumatismos por todo su cuerpo.

An Indictment of Bush's War Policies

Tennessee, 20.01.2006 00:09

#media_2298;left#Beginning in the mid 1990s, I began to believe that our relations with Iraq, characterized by punitive sanctions and no-fly zones, were unethical - wasting resources and harming people for no worthy purpose, with no prospect for progress and generating ill will between us and many people in the middle east. I contemplated a revised policy which would lead rather quickly to lifting of sanctions, improved Iraqi governance and reduced fear of Iraq's weapons. It would be coercive, cooperative and inexpensive. This contemplation was interrupted by Bush's announcement of war threats on the radio when I was hanging drywall.

Over 100 UCSD Students Stage Die-In for Darfur

San Diego, 19.01.2006 20:08

Over 100 UCSD students staged a die-in today at the Price Center, a central area for campus traffic, to urge the UC Regents to divest from Darfur. The UC Regents are meeting at UCSD today to decide on whether or not to divest from Darfur. A race-based genocide is going on in Darfur, and over 400,000 have died as a result. As students and a TV crew looked on, the students held signs about divestment from Darfur and one person spoke about why they were holding the die-in. The regents meeting will be taking place today from 10:30am to 2pm at UCSD and students will be attending the meeting.

Howard Zinn: No More Wars

Howard Zinn speaks at Tufts University on his romantic view of war as a child, his participation in the war machinery during World War II as a bomber, and his change of ideology and present stand against all wars. “We’ll need to think of ourselves as key players in whatever change needs to take place in the US and in the world. Therefore all of us bear some responsibility to do something, nothing big, nothing heroic, even something small… Because great social movements are made up of very small actions undertaken by very large numbers of people, which at certain points in history come together and bring about change.” H.Zinn To download the video excerpt, go to: http://www.archive.org/details/Zinn_NoMoreWars

The End of the World as We Know it?

Climate Change Back on Bristol's Agenda Climate Change Back on Bristol's Agenda As lord notes that James Lovelock, originator of the Gaia Theory recently wrote; "Either we implement a radical programme to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions worldwide, or we need to start taking measures to prepare for post-collapse survival in the few areas which will remain habitable by the end of this century. The choice is ours." Climate Change is back on Bristol's agenda. Don't Sink Bristol! writes: As climate change talks in Montreal fail to deliver, Bristol Green Party has launched a petition to the City Council, to bring more pressure on government to get vital global agreement on the climate crisis. They want the council to back the principles of "C+C" for an international deal on limiting greenhouse gases, that all nations can accept as fair. Full article. While Bristol Cycling Campaign report: [we had] until now decided not to support Critical Mass rides on safety grounds, as members believed they were becoming dangerous for cyclists. On reflection and considering the new safer feel of the recent two Critical Masses in 2005, our recent meeting decided that the campaign would support CM in future. Therefore we would be pleased to hear from any individuals or groups who are thinking of participating in future CMs to consider what support our 400-strong campaign can offer.

A boost for video activism

United Kingdom, 19.01.2006 09:39

While ever cheaper consumer electronics and increased internet bandwidth have made it easier than ever to make and distribute independent video, the number being made still appears to be disproportionately low compared to the number of people filming at events. Various projects have been initiated to empower more people to get involved with radical video production and screening. They include online distribution, archives, screening databases and training sessions.

In London this weekend there will be a video activism gathering consisting of skill sharing workshops, presentations, discussions such as the role of cameras on demos (how video can be used to get protesters both nicked and set free), along with feedback from the G8 video indymedia experience. Additionally there are plans to produce a DVD showcase of the participants work during the event as a video 'how-to guide' and promo to raise the profile of radical film making and encourage more people to have a go themselves.

Modeled on similar national gatherings (Indymedia Islip/Undercurrents) in previous years, this one takes place this time at the rampART social centre, starting friday evening (20th Jan 7pm). It's free and crash space is available for those attending from outside London. However, space is limited and anyone interested in attending should first email real2reelATriseup.net

The event ends with a special public screening of activist films on sunday evening. These will probably including 'Latitude 36' from Cine Rebelde plus music and live VJ'ing. It starts 7pm Jan 22nd - every one welcome. Entry by donation.

2 more arrests and direct evidence of FBI infilitration of activist meetings around US

Portland, 19.01.2006 08:38

The FBI's witch hunt against activists continues, with two more charged with arson in the last 36 hours, both Cascadian environmentalists. Jonathon Paul, 39 [pictured], of Ashland and Suzanne Nicole "India" Savoie, 28, of Appelgate were both indicted for their alleged involvement in a 2001 firebombing at the offices of a Superior Lumber Mill in Glendale, OR, an action claimed by the Earth Liberation Front.

Jonathan has long been an outspoken advocate for direct action for environmental causes, gaining the attention of numerous industry backed anti-environmental [1, 2] watch groups and the FBI for his activism. Jonathan also was involved in Earth First! campaigns, was on the Sea Shepard crew, and was involved in founding the American Whales Alliance and Ocean Defense International. Jonathan also spent 6 months in jail in 1992 for refusing to testify before a grand jury investigating Animal Liberation Front activities.

Suzanne, also an environmental activist, had been visited in on December 7th by two FBI agents and several state police officers who subpoenaed her to appear before the grand jury hearing scheduled for February 16th in Eugene. The FBI tried to intimidate her into talking, essentially stating that "women usually take the fall for men and that she shouldn't let that happen". Jonathon was also subpoenaed around the same time.

Jonathon's arraignment is Thursday, January 19th at 3:00 PM (this is a new date and time) at the Federal Building in Medford, OR, which is located at 310 W. 6th St (on the corner of 6th and Holly). Suzanne has not been arrested, and is still "at large". [ read more ]

Further Developments in Sacramento arrests: FBI infiltrator was running in activist circles

On Friday, January 13th Eric McDavid, Zachary Jenson and Lauren Weiner were arrested in Auburn, California and accused of "conspiring to damage or destroy by explosive or fire" cell phone towers, power plants and US Forest Service facilities. No arson occurred, however: the charges allege the 3 were planning one. All are requesting support and letters, and Lauren is requesting help securing vegan food.

The latest development here is the release of the FBI's affidavit in the case, which relies heavily on a deep cover, paid infiltrator. Supporters of the Auburn 3 identified the informant as a young woman named "Anna" who "went to Auburn" with the defendants shortly before their arrests. According to the affidavit "Anna" has has provided information in at least 12 anarchist cases since 2004. She has traveled to and infiltrated various anarchist gatherings and protests across the country including the Biodev 2005 demonstrations in Philadelphia, a CrimethInc. convergence in Indiana and the Feral Visions green anarchist gathering in North Carolina, all the while recording conversations and communicating with the FBI. [ read more ]

All this follows 6 arrests of people accused of Earth Liberation Front activities last month.

Please write letters of support to these prisoners. Always check for up-to-date contact information and guidelines at the North American Earth Liberation Prisoners Support Network and Portland Indymedia's Prisoner Support page.

Oregon AFL-CIO launches Fair Share Health Care initiative

Portland, 19.01.2006 06:40

The Oregon AFL-CIO is poised to introduce within days a Fair Share Health Care initiative modeled on the bill that passed in the Maryland Legislature last week. Maryland is the first state to require large corporations to provide health care for their employees. Oregon is one of more than 30 additional states using the legislation as a model.

"It's irresponsible and costly when non-union businesses boost their profits by denying health care to their employees and then letting taxpayers pick up the slack," said Oregon AFL-CIO President Tom Chamberlain. "The Oregon AFL-CIO will file a Fair Share Health Care initiative in the coming days to force large, profitable employers to pay their share toward a healthy workforce and healthy Oregon economy."

By requiring large corporations to report what they are spending on health care for their employees and requiring them to pay their fair share, a Fair Share Health Care Act in Oregon would:

-- reduce the bill Oregon taxpayers pay to cover profitable employers' labor costs;
-- help alleviate the financial pressures facing Oregon as we struggle to meet a growing need for Medicaid; and
-- level the playing field between companies providing good jobs and benefits to their workers and those that don't.

Hearings on Washington State's Fair Share Health Care bill, which would require companies of 5,000 or more to spend 9 percent of payroll on employee health care, begin tomorrow. The Maryland bill requires any private employer with more than 10,000 employees in the state to spend at least 8 percent of its payroll for workers' health care. Find more Fair Share Health Care information on the AFL-CIO web site.

Eric McDavid, Zachary Jenson, and Lauren Weiner were arrested on Friday, January 13th in Auburn, and accused of "conspiring to damage or destroy by explosive or fire" cell phone towers, power plants, and US Forest Service facilities as members of an Earth Liberation Front cell. The FBI paid a confidential informant who was "embedded" in this alleged ELF cell. The three are being held in Sacramento County Jail, awaiting January 20th and January 24th detention hearings. They have requested prisoner support, including letters, books, assistance in obtaining legal counsel, and support for vegetarian diets.
