Women as Social Warriors IV: Prevenir y Protejer

Santa Cruz, CA, 02.02.2006 05:40

Our 2006 convening and connected activities will focus on HIV/AIDS prevention and awareness for a population often overlooked and/or ignored in health policy for Latinas. There exists a growing prevalence of HIV/AIDS among women in highly mobile migrant communities on both sides of the border. This challenges us to bring a broad based coalition to the table, acknowledging that solutions locally must respond to transnational factors.

The upcoming convening features three of the most important leaders on health policy for Latinas. Xóchitl Castañeda of the California-Mexico Health Initiative will offer a perspective on the relationship between Mexican migration and HIV/AIDS transmission for women on both sides of the border. Barbara Garcia, Deputy Director of Health for San Francisco, will speak on health services and the role of Latino/a-serving agencies, drawing on her previous work as Director of Salud Para La Gente in the Pajaro Valley. Juanita Quintero, of UCSF will offer a regional perspective on her work with Latina health in San Francisco.



ACLU of Northern California Seeks Pentagon Files on Peace Groups

Santa Cruz, CA, 02.02.2006 05:08

SAN FRANCISCO -- The American Civil Liberties Union of Northern California (ACLU-NC) today filed a federal Freedom of Information Act request on behalf of UC students and groups whose lawful activities may have been monitored by the Pentagon. The move is part of a national ACLU effort to reveal the extent and purpose of Pentagon spying.

“Students should be able to freely express themselves on campus without fear of ending up in a military database,” said Mark Schlosberg, Police Practices Policy Director of the ACLU-NC. “The Department of Defense should act quickly and disclose all information it has collected on these student organizations and their members.”

The ACLU of Northern California and the San Francisco Bay Guardian filed its Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request on behalf of UC Santa Cruz Students Against War (“SAW”) and UC Berkeley students with Berkeley Stop the War Coalition (“BSTW”). The ACLU is seeking the disclosure of all documents maintained by the Department of Defense on the individuals and groups, as well as information on whether the records have been shared with other government agencies.

The national ACLU filed a similar FOIA request on behalf of the American Friends Service Committee, Veterans for Peace, United for Peace and Justice and Greenpeace. In Georgia, Rhode Island, Maine, and Pennsylvania ACLU affiliates are also seeking Pentagon files on local groups.

Diverse Voices for Peace Gather to Protest Bush in Nashville

Tennessee, 02.02.2006 00:09

Nashville, TN: Two hundred protesters stood across the street from Opryland today to voice their dissent and outrage and the Bush regime cavalcade passed by on the day after his State of the Union Address. The Nashville speech, which was attended by 4,000 privately selected audience members composed mostly of military personnel and Republican party members at the Grand Old Opry Theater, was part of a national public relations blitz the Bush regime has engaged upon in order to boost sinking public ratings, which are at a historic low. Locals from Tennessee including members of the Nashville Peace Coalition, Memphis Peace and Justice Center, Nashville Peace and Justice Center, CODEPINK! Women for Peace (from MS and TN), Planned Parenthood, the National Organization of Women, Service Employees Industrial Union, Veterans for Peace, Hamilton County Democrats and other groups stood at the intersection of Music Valley Drive and McGavock Pike, nearly a mile from the location of the President's speech, was the nearest public property on which protesters could legally gather.

Ghost Bike [permalink] At the end of January Critical Mass (CM), 4 bicyclists were detained and then taken to jail while standing on the sidewalk at the memorial of a slain bicyclist.

Uranium Found in Salmon Habitat

Portland, 01.02.2006 14:38

Hanford, Wash. - Independent analysis has confirmed uranium waste contaminating sediments in the Columbia River. This confirmation comes from joint sampling by the Washington state Department of Ecology and The RadioActivist Campaign, a non-profit, public-interest project.

Report Back and Photogs From Hugo Chavez Speech In Caracas

Portland, 01.02.2006 14:38

Hugo Chavez spoke last night. He spoke at a big soccer stadium out on the edge of town.

The trip to the stadium was via the metro and, once we got to the end of the metro line, via small busses.

Once at the stadium, the men were separated from the women in to two line. Each were searched for weapons and explosives. Then we were given bottles of water and smiles and entrance to the stadium.

The atmosphere inside was roaring excitement. These people are all hard-core soccer lovers and stadium-ecstasy is second nature. There was a pre-Chavez show with musicians playing excellent folk and revolutionary music and scores of young teenage boys and girls dancing slowly about with yards of diaphanous pastel cloud-gauze wafting gracefully behind.

I arrived a little late, a stream of disabilities was holding up the 14 going downtown, having just gotten off work, and the caffiene slowly wearing off, leaving me tired and cranky, I was not looking foward to walking back over the same bridge in the protest.

As I walked in the square, I was suprised to find out, that the plans have changed, we are getting on the max and going to the Lloyd center. Fine by me man. The cops were lined up directly accross the stage, I diddnt see any of them with cameras of any sort, although, when your downtown anycity, youre on camera most of the time anyway. After some rousing music we board the max. Much to my suprise, the cops didnt follow.

1st Person Accounts of GenoaG8 Diaz Raid Trials Has Made UK IMC

Portland, 01.02.2006 12:38

Wherever they are held, the G8 summits, the meetings of the 8 most powerful industrial nations, have a history of attracting campaigners and protestors from all over the world. There are the hard line protestors who believe that unless protest is radical (and for some violent) that nothing will be achieved, there are those who approach the situation with powerful humour and ironic messages such as The Clown Army at the recent G8 meeting in Scotland and those who subscribe to policies of non-violence. However I would argue that this is a simplistic view. At a forum where emotions run high and policing is tough and often intimidatory, any individual whatever their views can be caught up in situations designed by the authorities to contain, stamp out or prematurely end demonstrations. Reports at spike-online.com at the time of the G8 summit in Genoa in 2001 point out that "Condemning the 'mindless violence' of anti-capitalist protestors lets everybody off the hook - protestors and authorities alike." The G8 in Genoa saw arguably the worst violence of all summits, including one demonstrator shot dead. The right wing government at that time had an agenda of repression, intolerance and a determination to totally crush demonstrations. Finally 4 years later they now have a case to answer for the violence inflicted on many attendees at the Genoa G8 meeting in 2001.. [ read more ]

Saint Patrick’s Four

Portland, 01.02.2006 12:38

The date is March 17, 2003. St. Patrick's Day and just two days before U.S. bombs began raining down on Baghdad, 40 year-old Teresa Grady, her older sister Clare, Daniel Burns and Vietnam veteran Peter De Mott decided to take action against the impending illegal Anglo-American invasion of Iraq.

The group of Catholic Workers from Ithaca, New York, known as the "St. Patrick's Four," entered an Army-Marine Recruiting Center and poured their blood on the walls, recruiting posters and an American flag in an act of non-violent civil resistance to what they knew already was to be the first of countless violations of international law the Bush Administration would commit during their invasion and occupation of sovereign Iraq.

"We are about caring for the poor, needy and disenfranchised," Teresa told me two days ago when I asked her to sum up what the Catholic Worker movement was about, "We do this while confronting the political and economic structures that cause poverty."

It had already been a long day, as Teresa had earlier sat through her sister's sentencing - six months in a federal prison.
