Katuah Earth First!-fight mountain top removal!

Atlanta, 14.08.2004 15:42

#media_6914;right#This is an attempt to get across the strategic and tactical importance of helping us fight mountain top removal. Mountain Top Removal is the mining practice that literally blows the tops off the mountains, dumps them into the valley--then scrapes the coal underneath off. It is the final solution for our forest and mountains. It really should be called Mountain Range Removal because multiple peaks are blown off and dumped onto highland watersheds. It's the destruction of entire watersheds. Over 1000 miles of stream have been destroyed by MTR in West Virginia alone. With a clear-cut you have some hope that the trees will grow back--MTR is forever. Hardwood trees will never grow back on these sites because the soil becomes to acid. Additionally Mountain Top Removal is the death knell for deep mining and miner unions because dynamite is cheaper than people. It endangers and destroys entire Mountain communities with massive sediment dams and non stop blasting. As the demand for coal has increased so has the southern migration of MTR following the coal fields of the Cumberland Plateau. As bad as you might imagine it, MTR its much worse. Look it up on google and look at the pictures--you will see.

Palestina 2004 :: March for Liberty

The International Solidarity Movement’s civil disobedience campaign which is based on non violent strategies continues to develop in Palestine and is supported by Palestinian, Isreali and International activists. This march is to protest that the wall was declared illegal by the International Justice Tribunal. Activists from the Spanish State tell us of their experiences: 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11-12-photos. There are also other initiatives trying to change this situation such as the caravan of clowns through Palestinian land (photos), the petiticiondemanding that the Spanish State gives up the sale of arms to Israel by 30 NGOs , the dossier on the arms trade, and in Barcelona Isreali objectors to the occupation.

Federal Judge Rules that Presidential Debate Commission is Partisan and Therefore Improper Sponsor

Hudson Mohawk, 13.08.2004 20:57

A federal judge has ruled that the Commission sponsoring the Presidential debates is partisan and reinstated a complaint filed with the FEC by Ralph Nader, the Greens and other third parties. Advocates of clean elections have long complained that the two major parties used the Debate Commission to evade the federal ban on corporate contributions. The CPD is owned and operated by the Democratic and Republican Parties, and is funded primarily by corporate sponsors, which have an interest in restricting the participants and issues promoted in the debates. A finding of partisanship would disqualify the CPD from future debate sponsorship.



Census Bureau Records Used For Profiling Ancestry... Again

DC, 13.08.2004 20:54

The information, provided by the Census Bureau to Customs includes specific data on the Arab American population in the United States, broken down by population size (1000 or more Arab Americans) as well as by zip code. Troublingly, the data are further delineated by the specific ancestry or national-origin of the Arab Americans. These actions are a violation of the public's trust in the census bureau, and a troubling reminder of one of our nation's darkest days when the sharing of similar information resulted in the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II.

CONTINUED UPRISING IN IRAQ: WIDESPREAD BATTLES CLAIM HEAVY CIVILIAN CASUALTIES

Sothern Iraq Threatens Secession as Protests Errupt and Iraqi Officials Resign In Protest The week-long violence and uprisings in Iraq continued to spread across that nation over the last 72 hours. As nearly 4,000 U.S. troops and Iraqi security forces moved into Najaf amid intense battles with the Mahadi Army led by Moqtada al-Sadr, U.S. forces also engaged in heavy fighting in Kut, Ramadi, and Amara, with further battles taking place in Baghdad, Falluja, Diwaniya and Basra. Thousands of Iraqis took to the streets in protests all over Iraq, while sources at Iraqi hospitals said that hundreds of civilians had been killed and wounded in the fighting, most of them women and children according to the Health Ministry in Baghdad.

&quot;Why Not to Protest&quot; the RNC?: Three Views

NYC, 13.08.2004 17:07

Tens of thousands of New Yorkers and activists around the and world are preparing to protest the RNC. Many expect it to be a week of non-stop political action.

In the last few days, however, some have started to voice their displeasure at the approaching protest confab. Here's a sample of what they're saying:

"The political repercussions will boomerang,” said Rep. Anthony Weiner, a New York Democrat. “I believe a lot of Republicans would like to point to a lot of kids with spiked hair and rings through their noses and say, ‘This is what John Kerry is about.'” [Read More]

Mickey Z argues: "In a matter of weeks, politicians, protesters,v and police will converge on my beleaguered city...and that is precisely why I'm skipping town for a few days. The police state tactics and color-coded alerts are reason enough...but I'd also rather not witness firsthand the death throes of protest as we know it." [Read More]

And the Glorious Revolutionary Federation of Fortune 500 Killers opines: "what might have happened had these protestors organized around substantive issues of actual day-to-day social meaning to the poor and non-white populations who are conspicuously absent from most of these protests and “nights of political cabaret,” “(NEO-CON)ey Island Block Parties and Fashion Shows,” and “all-out raves.” Smaller but persistent protests around the country at poorly managed county hospitals and private insurance companies might actually force the issue of national health program onto a more prominent stage."

Campaign groups call for emergency vigil

United Kingdom, 13.08.2004 16:59


Campaign groups "Voices in the Wilderness" and "Iraq Occupation Focus" call for an emergency vigil at 10 Downing Street in Central London on Sunday, 15 th of August, Noon -2 pm to protest against the latest military attacks in Iraq.
Densely-populated Iraqi cities are under fire from US-UK forces. On Thursday, more than 75 Iraqis were killed in the US bombardment of Kut. British troops have killed at least twenty in their assault on Amara.

The attack on Najaf, led by US warplanes, has been condemned by public
opinion across Iraq. Sixteen members of Najaf's 30 member provincial council have resigned in protest at the assault.

In the last 48 hours, hundreds of civilians have been killed by occupying forces in the cities of Najaf, Kut, Sadr City, Sammara, Nasiriya, Amara, Basra, Ramadi and elsewhere.

Ansar Mahmood Deported After 31 Months; A Pizza Delivery Man from Pakistan who took a snapshot in front of reservoir

Hudson Mohawk, 13.08.2004 13:19

After thirty-one months in detention, Ansar Mahmood was deported by the United States government on the night of Thursday, August 12, 2004. Ansar Mahmood came to the US legally having won a green card in a lottery. He hoped this would be the beginning of a better life for his parents and his younger sisters who live in poverty in Pakistan. He worked as a pizza delivery man in Hudson, NY and made enough money to send home. Then on October 9, 2001 he was arrested because he asked guards at the Hudson water treatment plant to take his picture by the plant with the Catskill mountains in the background.

California Court Rules SF Same-Sex Marriages are Void

Santa Cruz, CA, 13.08.2004 07:25

On August 12, the California State Supreme Court ruled that San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom lacked the authority to issue same-sex marriage licenses, and therefore that the marriages that took place are void. Over 3900 same-sex couples were married at SF City Hall earlier this year. However, the court did not rule on the issue of whether or not same-sex marriages should be legal. Protests were held in cities all over the state. In Santa Cruz, people gathered at Town Clock.

(from the open newswire): The political campaign of City Councilman José Marco Serrano has received thousands of dollars in contributions from a firm that plans to build a building in the land that is now shared by various community gardens in the South Bronx. According to documents of the Board of Elections of the state of New York, members of the firm, Atlantic Development Group delivered the contributions in June, a few days before the Community Board meeting —where the members named by Serrano have the key vote— approved the construction of the building and consequently, the destruction of the gardens.

VENEZUELA: Entre Imperio y Revolución

Santa Cruz, CA, 12.08.2004 23:51

Para el próximo domingo 15 de Agosto, está previsto en Venezuela la realización de un referendo nacional para decidir sobre la continuación o no del gobierno liderado por el presidente Hugo Chávez — democráticamente electo en 1998 y re-electo en 2000. Sin embargo, lo que ocurre en Venezuela, lejos de ser un mero proceso electoral que determinaría el destino de un líder, es una confrontación directa entre los movimientos populares de Venezuela y el Imperio Capitalista. Esta confrontación, sin embargo, no se decidirá en las urnas electorales, sino en la calle... [ Coverage from: Indymedia.org I Puerto Rico Indymedia I UK Indymedia ]
