Prisoner of Conscience in the Hole for 13 Days

Tennessee, 04.02.2006 21:09

Donald Nelson is a prisoner of conscience. On November 20, 2006 he was arrested for going underthe fence to protest U.S. foreign policy in South and Central America and maintenance of the WHINSEC [formerly known as the SOA.] It is a terrorist training camp at Fort Benning in Columbus, GA. He was sentenced to jail for 3 months. Nelson reported to the Federal Prison in Memphis and was immediately put in solitary confinement in “the hole”. His wife, Carol Nelson, could not contact him and learned that he had not been processed. She didn’t know where he was. Finally, the Warden in Memphis said that they couldn’t process him until the court in Georgia sent a criminal evaluation.

Steve Kubby's medical condition stabilized. Reports say that his blood pressure appears to be under control, and he is being well attended to by the medical staff at the Placer County Jail. Kubby has asked for people to stop calling the jail on his behalf. He said, "I want everyone to know that I'm alive today because of their calls." On February 3rd, his attorney withdrew his request in court to use edible forms of cannabis in jail. The next hearing in the case will be February 15th.

Jonathan Robert Update

Portland, 04.02.2006 16:38

Jonathan Robert was arrianged on his most serious charges recently. He is apparently charged with 18 U.S.C. ? 844(e), using mail or phone to make a threat of fire or explosive. They are charging him with making a phone threat to a hotel that was hosting the G8 summit in Sea Island GA in 2004. This charge carries a maximum sentence of 10 years, and he was denied bail due to other pending charges in different districts.

Jonathan had a court appearance Feb. 2, 2006 and plead guilty to a federal misdemenor destruction of property charge, which carries a maximum sentence of one year in prison and a $100,000 fine. A dozen supporters were able to attend the hearing, and he seemed encouraged by their presence. The charge relates to him making several small slits in a tarp covering a chain link fence which was obstructing the view of people participating in the annual action to close the School of the Americas. The judge reserved sentencing until a Pre-Sentence Investigation report is completed which could be 4-6 weeks. Jonathan still has municipal charges relating to his being taking into custody.

Please write Jonathan letters and cards of support. Remember that all mail is read, so be smart. Prison is a lonely place and support is crucial. We expect Jonathan will remain at this address until sentencing which could be 4-6 weeks.

OMG-urile sunt neconstitutionale

Romania, 04.02.2006 04:37

9 decembrie 2005, este o data istorica: este aniversarea politica pentru Carta de Mediu ce a intrat in Constitutie in februarie acelasi an. OMG-urile (Organisme Modificate Genetic) au devenit literalmente neconstitutionale. In data de 9 decembrie, cu o decizie fara precedent, sectia penala a Curtii din Orléans – urmata de Curtea din Versailles in data de 13 ianuarie pentru un alt caz al unor *seceratori voluntari *– ne-a eliberat de culpa pentru actiunea voluntara de a fi secerat in anul 2004 cultura de porumb trangenic apartinand Monsanto. Curtea a recunoscut "necesitatea" actiunii noastre. Aceasta necesitate, conform curtii, rezulta din "pericolul existent al raspandirii necontrolate a genelor OMG, diseminare care a fost autorizata contrar dreptului constitutional la un mediu sanatos".

Guilty of opposing the arms trade

United Kingdom, 04.02.2006 01:08

Stuart Jordan, of Cambridge Campaign Against the Arms Trade, and Irene Willis, from South Essex CAAT, were in court on 23rd Jan. charged with "unlawful demonstration" for their role opposing the Dsei arms fair in September last year.

The police were at pains to state throughout the trial the significant size of the demonstration and how intimidating they found the "banners, dancing and bicycles" (!) The police were frustrated because they had set up a "pen" where they had decided protest was allowed to take place and some protesters had chosen to go elsewhere...

Ponte d'Aubonne: finalmente a processo i poliziotti che tagliarono la corda

Switzerland, 04.02.2006 00:07

Dal 13 al 15 febbraio 06 avrà luogo a Nyon il processo contro due funzionari di polizia accusati di lesioni corporali gravi per negligenza.

Durante un’azione di protesta contro il G8 di Evian, nel 2003, l’agente Michael Deiss aveva tagliato la corda da alpinismo alla quale s’erano attaccati due militanti pacifici in modo da bloccare il ponte di Aubonne.
Il taglio aveva rischiato di causare la morte dei due attivisti ed aveva causato delle ferite gravi ad uno di esse. Il suo superiore, Claude Poget, era responsabile della situazione caotica che regnava in Svizzera romanda quel giorno e che aveva indirettamente reso possibile l’accadere di un simile atto.

[L'azione: dossier | 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 | 1 - 2 - 3 | cronologia della giornata]

Ospedalizzato in Svizzera per circa un mese, l’alpinista ferito soffre tutt’ora per le ferite riportate.

In occasione del processo del 2004, i militanti sono stati riconosciuti colpevoli di aver bloccato la circolazione e d’aver messo in pericolo la vita degli automobilisti. Pochi giorni dopo, il giudice incaricato del caso dichiarava inaccettabile la denuncia contro gli agenti di polizia. Solo dopo un ricorso, e grazie ad una forte pressione pubblica, l’Alta Corte ha annullato questa decisione e ha autorizzato questo processo.

Il processo contro gli agenti sarà diretto da Jacques Antenen, il giudice che aveva inflitto le pene di prigione con condizionale ai due militanti. Se le accuse contro gli agenti verranno confermate dal processo, questi ultimi rischiano soltanto delle pene leggere (multe o reclusione con la condizionale). Visto la lunga storia di impunità della polizia in Svizzera, sembra improbabile che la colpevolezza degli accusati venga riconosciuta dal tribunale. Sin dall’inizio, i promotori della campagna «aubonnebridge.net» hanno domandato la sospensione dei due poliziotti implicati, un’inchiesta indipendente sulla repressione esercitata durante il G8 e sui danni causati, ed infine di portare dell’attenzione alle persone ferite gravemente.
Fino ad ora, il Canton Vaud ha rifiutato ogni risarcimento, ma questo dipenderà ora dal risultato del processo. Diversi testimoni e militanti presenti sul ponte, e anche dei poliziotti, verranno a testimoniare al processo che si terrà a febbraio.

Project Censored - Unterdrückte Nachrichten 2006

Germany, 03.02.2006 15:38

Seit rund 30 Jahren veröffentlicht das an der Sonoma State University in Kalifornien beheimatete Project Censored jedes Jahr eine Liste von ausgewählten Nachrichten, die von den Mainstream-Medien trotz ihrer Relevanz unterdrückt oder ignoriert werden. Die meisten Themen werden einzig von kleinen und eher alternativen Medienprojekten oder in der Bloggerszene aufgegriffen.
Ende letzter Woche erschien eine Liste mit 25 ausgewählten Nachrichten, die im Jahr 2005 untergingen.
Der deutsche Ableger "Initiative Nachrichtenaufklaerung" wird seine Liste am 14. Februar im Rahmen einer Pressekonferenz an der Universität Bonn der Öffentlichkeit vorstellen.

Pilsen Community Speaks Out

Chicago, 03.02.2006 06:09

Pilsen Speaks Out="1" align="left" HSPACE=3 VSPACE=1>[permalink] On February 3, the Pilsen Alliance led a rally and march from the site of a planned condo development to the Providence of God Church on 18th St. where a community meeting was held to discuss the plans. 25th Ward Alderman Danny Solis called for the meeting but it was moderated by the developers themselves. The development, 391 condos to be located at Peoria and 18th St., has been a source of contention since plans first leaked out.

Wednesday’s marchers shouted, “Pilsen’s not for sale!” and other chants in English and Spanish before making their way to the meeting. In a statement put out before the event the Pilsen Alliance stated that, “We cannot let outsiders decide what happens in our own neighborhood.” This sentiment was echoed by 40-year resident and candidate for State Senate Oscar Torres. Talking about the University Village development just to the north Torres stated, “That’s one huge example of where there was no input from the community. No one from this neighborhood can afford to live there.” The couple of dozen marchers were received with honks and hollers of support from passing vehicles on their way to the meeting. Outside the meeting hall Pilsen resident Teresa Ceniceros voiced her opposition to the plans because “it’s not affordable housing for the people in the neighborhood. They’re gonna be displaced.” Read More
