Media Maintains Status Quo

Portland, 21.02.2006 04:38

The mass media's real "job," unbeknownst to the general public, is and has always been to protect the status quo, that is, to protect the interests of the governing classes. What currently threatens their legitimacy (and that of the ruling classes) is not that they have not been doing their job in the last few years, but rather that the public has begun to realize that the real function of the mass media (and the government) is to work against the public interest. This growing realization is a terrifying prospect for the ruling classes. Hence they would do anything, including lamenting their own personal and individual "failures," to prevent such a ruinous outcome for the system.

To restate the matter, there has not been any failure as such. In the last few years, the mass media and the government have been doing exactly what they were designed to do within the context of the capitalist system. The lamentations are meant to keep people from realizing this fundamental fact.

Vanderbilt's Chancellor Gordon Gee and His Ties to Mountain Top Removal

Tennessee, 21.02.2006 02:10

Vanderbilt's distinguished Chancellor Gee currently holds director or trustee positions in several foundations and companies, one of which is Massey Energy Corporation. Massey currently exploits the South via MTR and has one of the worst histories of compliance and employee injuries on record. Gee has been retained by Massey since 2000 and serves on their Audit Committee, their Governance and Nominating Committee and their Environmental and Public Policy Committee. Chancellor Gee knows exactly what the current state of MTR is. He also knows exactly what is happening right now at Marsh Fork Elementary School in West Virginia.

World Social Forum Report Back from Venezuela

Portland, 20.02.2006 22:38

Venezuela: Another World is Happening
Community Report Back from the World Social Forum in Caracas and 23 de Enero

Twenty-three Portland activists have returned from Caracas, Venezuela where they attended the 2006 World Social Forum (WSF). The World Social Forum, whose slogan is "another world is possible," is a yearly gathering at which over 100,000 progressive activists, non-profits, and community organizations from around the world debate alternatives to corporate globalization.

At this year's Forum, anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan joined Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez to condemn the Iraq war and call for the assembled activists to work together and build a just economic order. Chavez, as usual, mockingly referred to Bush exclusively as "Mr. Danger." The first Forum took place in 2001 in Porto Alegre, Brazil. It was intended as a counterpoint to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, where some of the most powerful economic players in the world meet each year. Since then, the WSF has grown so much that organizers decided to hold this year's forum in three separate locations: one in Caracas, Venezuela; one in Banako, Mali; and one in Karachi, Pakistan.

Downtown SD: Diversity or Economic Apartheid?

San Diego, 20.02.2006 19:08

The San Diego City Council will be considering the Downtown Community Plan Update on February 28th. Members of ACCORD, a group of 20 grassroots organizations, urges you to attend; supporting efforts to make plan fair and more grass-roots developed.

Maria Villamoto, along with her husband and oldest
son, works downtown San Diego. Because they all get
off work at different times, after dark, they are
forced to drive separate vehicles from their crime
ridden San Ysidro neighborhood. They have searched for
years to find an affordable family apartment downtown
to only discover the hard facts of downtown San
Diego's increasingly economic segregation from the
rest of the greater metropolitian area...



Needed: Flat Panel Monitors, Laptops, Furniture

San Diego, 20.02.2006 19:08

As we begin moving into our new downtown media making space, we find ourselves in need of computer hardware and computer furniture. San Diego Indymedia has a new home at Voz Alta downtown on 15th and broadway. In the coming weeks, we plan to install a number of computers to be used for media making and for workshops. Unfortunately, we don't have much room for the computers in the new space, so the computers will have to be setup and taken down frequently and moved around a lot.


So, items we are need to make our new media space are the following things:

- Flat panel monitors
- Laptops
- Rolling computer furniture

If you can donate any of those items, please contact us at imc-sd at lists d0t indymedia d0t org.

Or, if you can donate funds to help us get these items, please use our donate page where you can donate directly with a credit card through paypal.

A flat panel monitor costs about $220 and a laptop can be purchased for about $750-1500.

Thanks for your ongoing support.

Studierendenproteste in Ostwestfalen/Lippe

Germany, 20.02.2006 15:39

Seit dem 1. Februar ist das Rektorat der Universität Bielefeld durch Studierende besetzt. Am 15. Februar haben auch Studierende der Universität Paderborn das Rektorat ihrer Hochschule besetzt. Hunderte Menschen beteiligen sich an diesen und vielen weiteren Aktionen gegen die Einführung von allgemeinen Studiengebühren in NRW. Die Proteste richten sich in weiten Teilen ebenso gegen den gesamtgesellschaftlichen Sozialabbau, gegen Demokratiemängel und gegen neoliberale Ausgrenzungsmuster. Ein Ende der Aktionen ist derzeit nicht in Sicht.
Hochschulleitungen in anderen Städten äußern mittlerweile Sorge vor "Bielefelder Verhältnissen" und lenken in der politischen Auseinandersetzung teilweise ein.

Protest - Tuesday 21st - Why JUDY CAMERON’s research will never help anyone

Portland, 20.02.2006 03:38

These studies would be laughable if the consequences weren't so grim for us as well as the monkeys. We have paid millions of tax dollars for Cameron's experiments, which at best duplicate what we already know from human observation. Lab monkeys are not even good models for normal monkeys because of the stressful and unnatural conditions of a lab. Common sense tells us that they cannot teach us about complex human social and psychological phenomena. Cameron has even planned to learn about human divorce by creating fake nuclear monkey families and removing the father to see the effects.
While OHSU's primate center gets more and more tax dollars, programs that actually help people are disappearing because of budget cuts. From 2000 through 2003, Cameron received $8,792,889 in National Institutes of Health grants, as well as portions of the OHSU primate center's base grants. The primate center is in the process of a massive expansion.

Cameron explains in her own words what is wrong with her experiments, commenting on the surrogate parent study: "The results are intriguing because they match observations on humans who lose their parents... Another experiment suggested a way to ease the stress: adoption. ... This probably translates to humans"



SHAC 7 Trial-Week 2

Portland, 20.02.2006 03:38

>>Monday, February 13, 2006

The SHAC 7 trial kicked off February 6th, with a strong protest of about 80-100 people, despite attempts by Homeland Security to prevent the demonstration from happening.

The first week of trial is now over and the case is moving along quite fast. Jury selection started Monday and the full jury was picked by Tuesday afternoon.

The prosecutor, Charles McKenna, opened with a dramatic, yet dull statement, that dragged on for 30 minutes. Each of the defense attorneys had time to make opening statements, calling attention to the gross misrepresentations in the governments opening, as well as the fact that these defendants are on trial for nothing more than reporting on the actions of others.

The week saw approximately 15 witnesses for the government, including the Huntingdon Life Sciences' Managing Director Brian Cass and other HLS employees. Despite allegations by the government that the SHAC USA site was "causing" people to take direct action against these employee's homes, most testified that either nothing illegal had happened at their homes or that their home addresses had not been posted on the SHAC USA website prior to any direct action. Of course, none could say that any of the defendants had done anything illegal to them.

More Evidence Of Attrocities In Iraq

San Francisco Bay Area, 20.02.2006 01:38

New pictures of Iraqi prisoners—naked, wounded, covered with blood, women’s underwear draped over their heads, bound in painful and degrading “stress positions”—were broadcast on Australian television February 16th, further exposing the horrors inflicted at the US military’s prison camp at Abu Ghraib. Video images of British soldiers brutally beating a group of Iraqi teenagers have also recently come to light. Soldiers are shown chasing youths, dragging four of them into a compound and beating them with batons and kicking various parts of their bodies. Meanwhile, Iraq has launched an investigation into claims that an Iraqi interior ministry "death squad" has been targeting Sunni Arab Iraqis.

International protests against Shell

United Kingdom, 20.02.2006 01:08

Stop the Shell Pipeline! Protests have taken place in Ireland, England, Scotland and Sweden to publicise the campaign ahead of the re-opening of Rossport Solidarity Camp, a protest camp supporting a community based struggle against Shell in the West of Ireland. On Friday 17th there was a Rossport Solidarity Demo in Liverpool, a critical mass style bike ride and occupation of Shell garages happened on Saturday in Nottingham [picture reports 1 | 2] and in north London London Rising Tide organised a blockade of a Shell garage which was closed for four hours [reports 1, 2]. All this coincided with a Rossport Solidarity Camp speaking tour of Scotland and England. Meanwhile in Ireland, the doors to Shell's main offices in Dublin were D locked shut, there was also a blockade of a Statoil garage in Cork and two solidarity meetings.

In Rossport Irish residents & supporters continue to obstruct the building of a dangerous gas pipeline. Last year five men from Rossport were jailed for contempt of court for refusing to obey the High Court order not to interfere with the construction of the Corrib gas pipeline. They were expected to be back at the High Court also on Friday 17th, potentially facing more time in jail. In November '05 the Rossport Five were released after 94 days in jail.
