#media_5165;right# Un momento de encuentro para recoger las últimas noticias de campañas y proyectos que están en marcha y se presentaron en anteriores jornadas (por ejemplo, la campaña contra las patentes de software), agitar debates que aún no tienen tanto calado social (canon por préstamo público en bibliotecas, patentes científicas o farmacéuticas) y avanzar algún paso más en otros bastante conocidos (la música, la edición de libros, el canon de CDs y DVDS, las últimas sentencias judidiales "copyleft"...). Igualmente, tratamos de incorporar en el programa talleres prácticos de uso de herramientas libres para la edición musical y audiovisual, y presentaciones de cortos, del videojuego copyleft y fronterizo "Bordergames" o de la original plataforma Burnstation. web de las jornadas

The vision for the Border Arts & Cultural Center
Supervisor Dianne Jacob blasted the proposed new powerlink SDG&E is planning to build, calling it unnecessary. The Supervisor questioned the motives of the company for building the line, claiming they were less interested in providing more energy for the future ... and more interested in maximizing their profits at the expense of rural county residents.

Students and teachers were curious about Conley’s experience as well as his opinions about the current situation in Iraq. He plans to return to Iraq to continue the documentary in the coming months.

A State of emergency has been declared in the Philippines. Protests have been violently dispersed, activists and radicals arrested and the media censored. The Philippines Solidarity Network of Aotearoa has responded to the call by the International Union of Food, Agricultural, Hotel, Restaurant, Catering, Tobacco and Allied Workers’ Associations (IUF) to mobilise "political pressure on your respective governments not to support President Arroyo's declaration. We also request you to manifest your support for democracy by calling on the Philippine government to withdraw the declaration of state of emergency. We urge you, dear comrades, to support the fight for democratic and trade union rights not only in the Philippines but also in all corners of the world."

We would like to apologize to Topher, and queer people in general. We in BTP all agree that we want to do our best to make sure that nothing like this will ever happen again. Although we appreciate the generosity of the organizers, we will take a more active role in planning our own benefits from now on and make sure that we can feel good about where our money comes from.
The concept for the event was to illustrate the price of passing the Patriot Act. It shows how we have commodified our basic rights under the guise of protecting the American people from "terrorism" in its ever-broadening definition. The winners are multinational corporations like Halliburton.

A few of the usual suspects turned out for a small but colorful Palestine vigil at Newton city hall Wednesday night. We gathered in solidarity with the residents of the Balata refuge camp outside of Nablus which has been under siege by attacking Israeli forces for almost a week. Many children and camp residents have been shot, some killed, homes have been demolished and all deprived of food, medical care, and basic freedoms as the occupiers conducts ruthless military aggression against the camps 21,000 inhabitants. http://www.balatacamp.net/website/balata.htm
MARCH 18 MASS ANTI-WAR PROTEST IN LA
Many residents of SE PDX are familar with the garden that has grown at the corner of SE 21st & Brooklyn for at least the last nine years. The garden has passed through various stages of maintenance and neglect but has always provided a welcome green open spot at that intersection. But the days of those cycles are over; as of this writing, the garden is being heartlessly ripped up and compacted by heavy machinery.
A hearing at the federal courthouse in Tucson this morning ended without a clear resolution on Rod Coronado's detention. Magistrate judge Charles Pyle has taken the matter under advisement after the prosecution and the defense argued back and forth on whether Coronado should remain in custody and be extradited to San Diego, where he is charged in a grand jury indictment with "distribution of information relating to destructive devices." It is unknown how long it will take for Judge Pyle to decide.

Im November 2004 wurde bereits ein grosses Gebäude des Areals besetzt und konnte nach Verhandlungen weiter bestehen. In Winterthur sind diverse besetzte Häuser vorhanden, einer der spektaktulärsten Besetzungen war diejenige des Sulzer Hochhauses. Mehr Informationen dazu und allgemein zu Winterthur in einem älteren Feature.

To be infected with homophobia and not seek a cure is to be irresponsible op-ed The Metropolitan Library Commission of Oklahoma County, satiated with its close association to divinity, has voted to remove age-appropriate gay-friendly children's books to a "free speech zone" disguised as a "parenting shelf". ----- Responsible people should be working to end this social wrong of homophobia, not just managing by sorting it to another shelf, out of sight.

What a Web We Weave When We Endeavor to Deceive (Oklahoma City, OK) The Metropolitan Library Commission of Oklahoma County, satiated with its close association to divinity, has voted to remove age-appropriate gay-friendly children's books to a "free speech zone" disguised as a "parenting shelf". Remarks made at the Commission table indicated that some of the Commissioners think their "final solution" is a compromise between (1) those wanting the open shelving policy to remain in place and (2) Representative Sally Kern, who's initial and still current goal, is to remove all gay themed, age-appropriate, diversity-friendly children's books--no ifs, ands, or buts. If your definition of "compromise" means "balance" I do not understand how a segment of our Oklahoma County taxpayers who wanted to maintain a neutral, status quo policy in the library can be thought of as extreme to the same extent as a Sally Kern. This assertion by two Commissioners in particular can only be made because in acquiescing to Kern's demand the center-line of policy, the Greenwich meridian, has been forced to the right. These voices on the Commission know they've done the wrong thing--sinking to the level of homophobia and financial blackmail. Mrs. Kern is co-chair of a House committee controlling public library funding. But by describing their appeasement of Mrs. Kern as a compromise, the Commission is trying to put themselves in a better light and remove the focus from those Commissioners who harbor religiously-inspired homophobia. I can't help but think of the joke concerning a little boy, who wanting a pony for his birthday, spies a dung pile and knows there's something close by for him. Gay people are a minority in numbers, not a minority in age concerning mental maturity or acuity. Does the Commission think its dealing with humans that are just too big for car seats, unable to perceive deception? Our pride as professional human beings is insulted. We've been living too long and devoted too much time practicing to be termed amateurs or rubes. We can be proud that our collective communications with the library Commission, either letters, phone calls, e-mails, and appearances at public meetings, have exposed institutional homophobia to the litmus test of newsprint and the bright light of cameras. Even the Oklahoman editorialized against Kern. To be infected with homophobia and not seek a cure is to be irresponsible in that one is spreading contagion to others, debilitating common society, inhibiting the personal growth of others, diminishing imagination. Sounds like fundamentalist religion. Where's a Louis Pasteur when we need him? Responsible people should be working to end this social wrong of homophobia, not just managing by sorting it to another shelf, out of sight. James Nimmo Oklahoma City

Port Deal Petition: The Real Scandal with the Port Sell-Off Deal
On Saturday, February 25, residents of the greater Boston area came together outside of the Tremont Street Military Recruitment Center to resist the recruitment of their friends, families, classmates and peers. Almost all attendees were local high school or college students, who are particularly concerned that the military is allowed on school campuses. The demonstration was called by members of the Radical Youth Alliance, an organization of dedicated youth throughout the area who work together on a variety of issues but focus on resisting the war.
Acadia WUSC Raising Awareness on Refugee Issues
While on a quick trip, I happened to pass through Camas, Washington, for the first time ever. I was happily surprised at the sight of a half dozen protesters on a busy corner there. They were bearing signs calling to impeach Bush, and Stop the War NOW!
L’Aquila 18 e 19 marzo 2006: Giornate Internazionali Anarchiche
Two weeks ago I found my name on a government list regarding the current "Green Scare," also known as the FBI's "Operation Backfire" against the grassroots ecology and animal movements... I've come to view this ridiculous list as symbolic of the whole Green Scare campaign... The U.S. government excels at dropping down on people's lives like a ton of bricks, and of course that's what it has done with this witch hunt... The question is how can these individuals-sitting alone after arrest for 23.5 hours a day in cold cells and facing decades of jail time or even multiple life sentences-have the strength to resist? ... I want to be clear that I'm not speaking about anyone in particular. When I write "these people," I'm referring to those already indicted, subpoenaed or harassed, as well as those to come.
South Central Farmers to Present Documentary on Their Struggle
THE tidal wave of draconian suppressive legislation being rushed in by the Government is a sign that they are losing control. That was the positive message to emerge from a meeting on civil rights held in Brighton on the evening of Thursday February 23. One local campaigner told the 50-strong gathering at the Friends Meeting House in Ship Street: "It is a real sign of weakness by the Government. They know they haven't got any answers. "They are desperately trying to shut people up. It's all trying to get people off the streets."

EM DEFESA DA MEMÓRIA, SOMOS TODOS ARGUIDOS!
A large man was face-down on the cement in the street, with about 5 pigs beating him with their billyclubs. He didn't seem to be resisting arrest, because he didn't really have anywhere to run. But they continued to beat him, after the fact that he had been charged with at least 50,000 volts of electricity and was most definitely paralyzed momentarily. Without any way to defend himself, the man lay beaten on the ground. After a bit, the piggies backed up to check out their damage. At this point, there were around seven cop cars enclosing the block, and more were on the way. The white pigs in uniforms stood in a circle all staring down at the man. Me and my friends were getting rather terrified at this point, we took some pictures of the scene and one of my friends instinctly yelled with horror "YOU KILLED HIM!!" ... it was at this point that there was a large pool of dark red blood spilling from the man's upper-body. Once he was turned over, we saw the man's face - completely smothered with bright cherry red blood, covering his whole face. He did not move, and this led all of us [the pigs, me and my friends, the streetkids onlooking fromn the corner] to believe that this man was shortly to be taken away to the morgue. The pigs chuckled and harassed folks passing by, saying to them, "guess you aint gonna be drinkin an' drivin, now are you?!!?" and laughing with people trying to drive down the street.
