Students Strip for Sweat-Free UC

San Francisco Bay Area, 03.03.2006 22:12

Stripping down to their skivvies, students at UC schools protested sweatshop-made UC collegiate apparel. Bearing the slogan: “We tried to find sweat-free clothes in our bookstore and this is what we came out with” (i.e. nothing), students highlighted the widespread practice of producing collegiate apparel in factories with poor labor standards. A few dozen spirited students turned out at UC Santa Cruz, more than 50 at Berkeley, and another 50 at San Diego. Protests were also reportedly held at Santa Barbara, Irvine, and Riverside. Regardless of the school, few clothes were to be seen.

Anti-Deportation Protest at Nottingham Magistrates Court

United Kingdom, 03.03.2006 09:39

Around 30 people protested the illegal deportation of 20-year-old Afghani refugee Ali Noori at Nottingham Magistrates Court this morning [Thursday, March 2].

Ali came to Britain as a minor, and has been awaiting the result of his appeal to remain here. He was detained at the police station on March 1 with no prior warning to him or his solicitor which, we assert, makes the deportation illegal.

It is expected Ali will be moved to the detention centre near Oxford shortly, before being deported. Legal representations are being made, however.

Minimum wage workers take McDonalds to Court

Aotearoa, 03.03.2006 06:40

The Unite Union's struggle for a $12 minimum wage, end to youth rates and job security for McDonald's workers intensified today as the multi-billion dollar company was charged with illegal practices. The company was issued a legal document charging the company with “unlawful failure to bargain” and “unlawful discrimination on grounds of union membership” [Press Release]

“McDonald’s is using their position as a powerful corporation with great financial resources to intimidate their workforce which is made up of young and vulnerable workers. They have orchestrated a systematic campaign to obstruct their employees from joining their union. The company has circulated a written proposal circulated to all stores and that an increase will only be paid to non-members. Some Unite members have been told that they will get the early increase if they resign from the union." said Unite spokesperson Simon Oosterman.

McDonalds has responded by claiming that Unite's actions so far have been damaging to their brand and that they have no intention of rewarding such behaviour in their employees.

Over 100 Unite workers and supporters are expected at a protest strike tonight. [Press Release]

Supreme Court Ends Protection Against Abortion Clinic Violence

San Francisco Bay Area, 03.03.2006 04:44

On February 28th, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a ruling that could add to the increasing difficulty women face in obtaining reproductive health services. The Court's 8-0 decision in Scheidler, et al., v. National Organization for Women (NOW), et al. and Operation Rescue v. NOW, et al. could usher in a return to clinic violence in the United States. The filing of this case and the resulting injunction, which had protected clinics nationwide, contributed to the reduction in clinic violence that has been seen in recent years. Without strong protections against clinic assaults, the legal right to abortion could become meaningless.

Tortured Prisoner Fights Back: Abu Ghraib, RI, USA

Boston, 02.03.2006 15:10

Providence, RI--Prison officials in Rhode Island are worried. Their crimes are being exposed. Michael Walsh, a 30 year-old construction laborer from East Providence, RI, is being held in Minimum Security at the Adult Correctional Institution (ACI) of Rhode Island. On February 18, Valentines Day, he says that prison guards preformed an anal cavity search on him. They accused him of smuggling contraband, and in a depraved act reminiscent of the crimes of Abu Ghraib, forced Walsh to eat his own feces. Walsh says they then denied him the use of the sink and a toothbrush all day. Walsh also says that ACI officers beat him on the face with a telephone book.

Grassy Narrows First Nation warns Washington-based Weyerhaeuser “withdraw or face fierce campaign”

Portland, 02.03.2006 13:38

The Grassy Narrows First Nation today sent letters warning the chief executives of Weyerhaeuser (NYSE: WY) and Abitibi-Consolidated to "immediately cease and desist from all logging and industrial resource extraction on our territory" or face a "fierce international campaign".

The letter follows a decade of failed negotiations, lawsuits, environmental assessment requests, public protests, and a 3-year logging blockade. The letter asserts that decades of unsustainable logging has "poisoned our waters with mercury and other toxins, nearly eliminated our ability to practice our way of life, and robbed us of economic opportunities."

Pirate Radio Station Visited by FCC

Portland, 02.03.2006 13:38

After 3 years of broadcasting, the Portland Radio Authority was paid a visit by a person identifying themselves as an agent of the Federal Communications Commission at 2pm, Wednesday the 1st of March. A call was placed to the stations facilitators and an e-mail was then sent to all station dj's ordering and immediate halt to all station activities.

Black Panthers SPEAK!

Portland, 02.03.2006 13:38

Three well-known inspirational Black Panthers will be speaking this thursday, March 2nd at Portland State University. This event is sponsored by Students for Unity, a radical activist organization at PSU, dedicated to anti-oppression work.

The Black Panther Party was a black revolutionary group that created positive social change in the 1970s. The Panthers practiced militant self-defense of minority communities against the U.S. government, and fought to establish revolutionary socialism through mass organizing and community based programs. The party was one of the first organizations in U.S. history to militantly struggle for ethnic minority and working class emancipation — a party whose agenda was the revolutionary establishment of real economic, social, and political equality across gender and color lines.
