11 Indicted in Latest Round of FBI Environmental Witch Hunt

San Francisco Bay Area, 28.01.2006 16:39

On Friday, January 20th, the Justice Department announced that 11 individuals were being charged in a 65 count indictment handed down by a Eugene, Oregon grand jury. The indictment charged the individuals with a series of arsons, sabotage and vandalism that were claimed by the Earth Liberation Front and the Animal Liberation Front, between 1996 and 2001. The FBI has called these actions terrorism. Several indictments and arrests lately have been linked to paid FBI infiltrators.

Oakland Educators Protest Intimidation Tactics

San Francisco Bay Area, 28.01.2006 04:38

On Monday January 23rd 2006, more than 100 people turned out on short notice to demand a fair contract and to protest Randolph Ward's intimidation tactics. For the past 18 months, there has been a contract dispute between the Oakland Unified School District and the 3,000+ members of the Oakland Education Association. A new offer was made by the OEA to the Oakland Unified School District on December 7th, but was rejected without comment by Randolph Ward. Ward is now placing advertisements in Bay Area newspapers and on sites like Craig's List offering uncredentialed replacement workers $300 per day to be scabs in the case of a strike.

Why the “Free State” of Maryland Isn’t So “Free!”

Baltimore, 28.01.2006 03:08

Maryland was never a “Free State!” It is now awash in millions in campaign cash raised by the candidates of the Duopoly Party (DemRepublicrats) in 2005, who want to be its next governor. The incumbent, the GOP’s Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr., is the “most prodigious fundraiser in Maryland history.” He has also received $16,000 in campaign contributions from - Jack Abramoff. It’s time for Ehrlich to come clean about his relationship with the ultra-lobbyist.

This intercontinental network of resistance, recognising differences and acknowledging similarities, will search to find itself with other resistances around the world. This intercontinental network of resistance will be the medium in which distinct resistances may support one another. This intercontinental network of resistance is not an organising structure; it doesn’t have a central head or decision maker; it has no central command or hierarchies. We are the network, all of us who resist."

Harmondsworth Detainees Protest after Death in Detention

United Kingdom, 28.01.2006 00:38

On 19 January, 2006, Bereket Yohannes, a 26-year-old from Eritrea, was found hanged in the showers of Harmondsworth detention center near Heathrow [see NCADC's original report].

The following day, distressed detainees refused to take food, held a meeting and demanded to meet with the United Kingdom Detention Services (UKDS) who run detention centres. 61 detainees signed a joint statement concerning the conditions at Harmondsworth and the treatment of detainees and presented it to UKDS. A member of the detainee support network said:

"I wish to underline the detainees' protest was thoroughly peaceful. The committee members had a key role in defusing tension and stopping other detainees from taking more drastic and desperate forms of action."

Nevertheless, UKDS and the Home Office responded by moving those involved to “secure cells” (solitary confimement) or transferring them to other detention centres as a punishment [report].

This was not the first time that miserable conditions at detention centres have lead to protests and people taking their lives [Harmondsworth protest 2004 | IRR report | Interview with detainee].

A vigil in memory of Bereket will be held on Sunday, 29 January, outside Harmondsworth detention center. Participants are ecouraged to visit detainees.


Many groups around the country are supporting asylum seekers or support the slogan "no one is illegal". To name only a few: national coalition of anti-deportation campaigns, Barbed Wire Britain, local noborder groups in Birmingham, Glasgow, Leeds, London, Manchester and Sheffield. There is also a noborders forum and an open announcement mailing list.

Cap a l'Audiència Nacional: la hipocresia de l'Estat de dret espanyol

Anar a l'Audiència Nacional, institució hereva del franquisme, significa un judici en un tribunal especial i sota normativa especial quan suposadament tot*s som iguals davant la llei. Tot això i les característiques d'aquesta democràcia hipòcrita fan que un procés judicial a l'Audiencia Nacional comporti en la gran majoria dels casos: incomunicació, sense dret a advocat ni dret a comunicar res a la família o amics, de fins a 7 dies, maltractaments i tortura, declaració forçada, delictes reconstruïts, penes desmesurades, dispersió i fins i tot pot arribar a la mort. Aquest tracte desigual i vexatiu atempta clarament contra els Drets humans més bàsics i converteix aquest estat de dret en una pseudodemocràcia.

Hacia la Audiencia Nacional: la hipocresía del estado de derecho español

Ir a la Audiencia Nacional, institución heredada del franquismo, significa un juicio en un tribunal especial y bajo normativa excepcional cuando supuestamente tod*s somos iguales ante la ley. Todo esto unido a las características de esta democracia hipocrita hacen que un proceso judicial en la Audiencia Nacional comporte en la gran mayoría de casos: incomunicación, sin derecho a abogado ni derecho a comunicar nada a la familia o amigos, de hasta 7 días, malos tratos y tortura, declaración forzada, delitos reconstruidos, penas desmesuradas, dispersión e incluso puede llegar a la muerte. Este trato desigual y vejatorio atenta claramente contra los Derechos humanos más básicos y convierte este estado de derecho en una pseudodemocracia.

Clowns take to Parliament Square in latest protest against SOCPA.

United Kingdom, 27.01.2006 14:38

The rebel clowns - and many others - had spent the day at Bow Street Magistrates court ( http://publish.indymedia.org.uk/en/regions/london/2006/01/332263.html) expressing solidarity with five defendants who had been charged under the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 132 (SOCPA 2005). The bill outlaws all "demonstration without authorisation" within 1Km of parliament.

These five defendants had had the audacity to hold signs reading 'We have the Right To Protest'. The magistrate must have thought they were very clearly Serious Organised Criminals indeed - because she found them all GUILTY.

Georgetown Hunger Strikers Win!

United States, 27.01.2006 07:38

After a three year campaign for living wages, which culminated in a nine-day hunger strike by 22 students, Georgetown University has accepted almost all of the 10 demands made by the living wage campaign waged by students on behalf of university workers.

Following the hospitialization of a second hunger striker on the eighth day of the hunger strike, and faced with increasingly broad support for the striker's demands from the DC labor and religious communities, the University has agreed to guarantee a living wage indexed both to inflation and the cost of living in Washington, D.C., which will represent an almost 100% wage increase from their previous commitment to a near poverty-level wage of $8.50/hr. This new commitment will apply not only to University workers, but also those employed at the University through subcontractors.

The University will also guarantee the right of University employees to organize and to access University resources and benefits like affordable health care and the use of campus libraries and ESL classes. The University even proposed an implementation timeline of two years which is shorter than that formulated by the living wage campaign. With only a few minor points of difference, and otherwise substantive agreement, between the University proposal and the demands made by the students, the proposal was accepted and the hunger strike concluded.

A16 Dallas Call To Action: Spank The Bank!

United States, 27.01.2006 07:38

Every year there is a national call to action in Washington, D.C., to protest the headquarters of the bastions of globalization that are the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. As activists living in Texas, we believe that the negative repurcussions of free trade are felt globally and locally alike, and should not have to travel some 1300 miles to the headquarters of these organizations to have our voices heard. Right here in Dallas we have a financial district that promotes the same kind of ruthless, profit-oriented international business model as the IMF/World Bank, yet survives each year with its inhumane business practices left unquestioned and unscathed. To quote our Zapatista brothers and sisters, "Ya basta, enough already!"

flag.blackened.net Server Under Attack

United States, 27.01.2006 07:38

The FBI has recently sent two subpoenas to the website administrator of the flag.blackened.net webserver. Recently, there have been rumours circulating in anarchist circles that Dave, the flag's webmaster, had been contacted by the FBI. He released this press release to notify the wider activist community on what has been going on. The flag server hosts many of anarchism's most widely viewed websites and the removal of this sever would be a major blow to anarchist organising worldwide.

He has been ordered on two separate occasions to submit IP information of people using certain subdomains hosted on the flag server, but he is now "under court order not to speak about specifics." The charges relate to people claiming responsibility for propaganda by the deed". The moderator believes at least one of these cases are by people trying to make the flag server "vulnerable to government intrusion". Popular websites hosted on the flag server include Infoshop News and the Anarchist FAQ.

The FBI in recent years, has gone after a number of radical/revolutionary left wing websites, most notably shutting down the raise the fist website and subsequent jailing of its webmaster Sherman Austin as well as targeting many websites in the Indymedia network.

Anti-IMF/World Bank Banner Drop in Dallas in Preparation For A16

On April 14th at approximately 9:05 a.m. a 20x30 ft banner featuring an anti-IMF/World Bank slogan (que se vayan todos; corporate corruption) was dropped in downtown Dallas. Due to the heavy police presence across the street and the happy guy in a Mercedes almost running over the banner, the local activists responsible express regret that all the words were not fully visible. This banner commenced the weekend's anti-globalization solidarity celebrations to be continued with a mass demonstration on April 16th in the financial district of Dallas.

CAFTA in trouble

United States, 27.01.2006 07:38

While anti-CAFTA demonstrations in Guatemala go unheeded by the oligarchy and government, the atmosphere in the U.S. surrounding this flawed trade agreement seems to have taken a bad turn. As activists take their message to the streets in New York City, Santa Cruz and elsewhere, the so-called Central America Free Trade Agreement may have a hard road ahead in the U.S. congress. Recent testimony before the Senate finance committee found that many questions were critical and represented for some analysts, a growing opposition to the agreement in Congress. Anti-corporate globalization activists, environmentalists, Labor unions and, as some polls show, a majority of most U.S. citizens oppose CAFTA. Even the extreme rightwing John Birch society opposes CAFTA! Perhaps the U.S. Congress will follow.
