Cyprus Govt. Admits CIA Campaign Against Indymedia

Boston, 12.08.2004 23:31

The scandal is unfolding in gigantic proportions... and we can hardly keep up with the developments. Responding to a publicity and solidarity campaign by Indymedia, the Government of the Republic of Cyprus has been forced to admit that they were acting under orders from the US Government to carry out an intelligence investigation of Cyprus Indymedia and of one of its founding members, Petros Evdokas, in order to assess whether he "constitutes a threat to US interests." Police had interrogated the family of Petros Evdokas a few weeks ago and, during the affair, inadvertently blurted out that the source of this investigation was a directive by the CIA. After a series of denials and cover-ups (chronicled below) the Police Headquarters issued an official statement on Friday admitting to everything that Indymedia had accused them of, namely that directives of the CIA and the US Embassy have priority over their own mission which, believe it or not, is to protect the tiny and independent Republic from foreign intervention. This campaigns to intimidate IndyMedia is part of a global trend, including the nation- wide "pre- emptive" raids and interrogations by the FBI of radicals in Boston and across the US in order to thwart preparations to protest at the two Republocrat party conventions.

A Shadow Protester Speaks

NYC, 12.08.2004 17:41

(from the Open Newswire): "I am a shadow volunteer. I have made it completely through the background checks.

" This is funny as I have been involved in actions since 1993. I have been arrested once for vandelism, which resulted in a high profile slap suit by a prolife group. You would think at least SOME of this information would emerge during the "extensive back ground checks"

" Just yesterday I received an invitation to be on the "special welcoming committee" since I "impressed them so much at orientation" Basically I filled out all of the questions and told them that I was not only totally available but that I would be taking time off from work to dedicate to the convention.

" So I will have to attend about 8 hours (between this weekend and next) of training to qualify for this "special position"

" Suckers.

"So this is a message to anyone out there thinking about doing the shadow protest thing.

"I am a pretty normal looking (this is important, unfortunately) pissed off, mother of one, my greatest weapon is my brain and my ability to not show up.

Keystone Cops at the RNC: Street Theater in the Midst of Protest

Santa Cruz, CA, 12.08.2004 07:37

There is no need for protests to be boring. With a little imagination, you can make your journey into protest zones safer and more fun. Everyone likes street theater. People like imaginative scenery to look at. Especially the media. So, think about fun ways to monkeywrench the usual, and bring about some laughs at the same time. And if you are participating in the RNC protests, and are of draft age, document your protest activities in a conscientious objector file (

(Aug. 7, 2004, U Street, N.W.) The meeting started with a prayer. The prayer maker likened the situation of SisterSpace to being "in the river". Too much is flowing all around the community, and the longtime residents are losing their fight to stay, one by one, building by building.

Pickle Pickets Proliferate

Tennessee, 12.08.2004 02:04

Today a handful of enthusiastic supporters of the Farm Labor Organizing Committee’s (FLOC’s) boycott of Mt Olive Pickle Company gathered in front of the TVA building in downtown Chattanooga to solicit support. Our efforts were well received, and we distributed over 300 flyers in less than 2 hours… The charges against Francisco Heredia and Blake Pendergrass, who were arrested during a meeting with 20 cucumber pickers at a Nash County labor camp near Whitakers, North Carolina, have been dropped. Numerous pickets and rallies have been held across the country in their support, including one in Norfolk VA on July 31st, and also a rally that coincided with their court appearance on August 3rd, in Nashville, NC. A statement from FLOC concerning the matter, follows this campaign summary…

Najaf and the Shrine of Ali

San Diego, 12.08.2004 00:24

Our country’s military now declares preparations to attack the Shrine of Ali in the city of Najaf in Iraq. Our country stands on the precipice of declaring war on Islam. An attack on the Shrine of Ali is an attack on the heart of Islam and must be nonviolently resisted in our country.

As the fighting and crisis intensifies in Najaf, Voices in the Wilderness calls for nonviolent acts demanding an end to the fighting. Call your Congressional Representative, US Senator and John Kerry’s campaign headquarters in your state to demand that they publicly call for an end to all US military actions in Najaf, against its citizens and at the Imam Ali Mosque. Call candidates for federal office in your state and issue the same demand.

If they don’t respond positively, initiate nonviolent direct actions at their offices. The time to act is now.

Police Intimidation in Kennebunkport Maine: Using Trumped Up Charges to Discourage Free Speech

New Hampshire, 11.08.2004 21:15

Is the right to Free Speech a thing of the past? We thought Boston was bad enough - what with the "protest pen," the police and military occupation of the streets, the delegate from Ohio arrested for just trying to get into the Fleet Center. But our experience this weekend in Kennebunkport Maine taught us that the police and the feds will use whatever means they have to stop dissent.

Venezuela - Between Empire and Revolution

Santa Cruz, CA, 11.08.2004 19:38

On Sunday, August 15th, a national referendum is scheduled to take place in Venezuela to decide whether democratically-elected president Hugo Chávez should remain in office. The outcome of this referendum, while significant, is only a fragment of a much larger and longer tale of class struggle in Venezuela, where 80% of the population lives in poverty and the richest 20% control the majority of country's natural and human-produced resources.

Chavez was first voted to office by an overwhelming majority after leading a coup attempt against the corrupt leader Carlos Andres Cardenas, who among other atrocities, brought the nation under the rule of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) 'austerity measures.' The popular movements of Venezuela view Chavez as a symbol of self-determination and hope, and the opposition's attempt to oust him as an attempt by the capitalist classes to reassert fascist rule over the country. This confrontation will not be decided solely by ballots, but by popular struggle in the streets and the countryside.

Food not Bombs Volunteers "Serve" up Free Vegetarian Fare. For the month of August, FNB is serving in Scott Park, on the corner of 3rd St. and Springfield Ave. in Champaign.

Every Sunday at 4:30 p.m. the meal is served in a local park. All hungry people are invited to eat and fellowship free of charge. FNB has experimented with several locations including West Side Park, Skelton Park, and Crystal Lake Park.
