Naziaufmarsch in Ried

Austria, 21.03.2006 15:08

Nachdem die Stadt Ried im Innkreis durch rassistische Äußerungen von SPÖ- und ÖVP- und FPÖ- PolitikerInnen sowie einem Schwimmbad-Verbot für muslimische Frauen in die Schlagzeilen gekommen war, fand am 18. März 2006 ebendort eine Neonazidemo mit 150 TeilnehmerInnen statt. 200 AntifaschistInnen sammelten sich spontan in der Rieder Innenstadt um gegen Nazis zu demonstrieren.

Olympa Peace Rally

Portland, 21.03.2006 12:39

Over 700 people gathered on Saturday here in Olympia to demand an end to the Iraq war. They lined 4th Avenue, from the bridge to Percial Landing, the major route through the city. People waved and honked their horns in support. Origami cranes with peace sayings adorned 4th avenue and the trees surrounding the fountain.

Eugene Civil Resistance activists arrested after sit-ins

Portland, 21.03.2006 12:38

We went first to the Federal Building, where Senator Smith has his office on the third floor. Neither he nor his staff were in residence, and we knew we would not be able to get to the third floor, so we had our sit-in in the downstairs lobby, and a bunch of us, including some spirited high school kids, were arrested.

We then moved on to the building that houses the offices of Senator Wyden and Rep. DeFazio. We found their doors locked, even though there were staff inside each office. There were signs posted saying they were closed for the day, on the advice of some government agency. One of us talked to people in both offices on his cell phone, asking them to come out and talk to us. They refused. [ read more ]

M20 Actions in Eugene

The day started out with a small group of coordinated individuals standing around outside the Federal building. When all of their people finally arrived (many of them high school students) they proceeded into the doorway of the building where they had a town hall meeting stating that when protests (such as the permitted marches we've all seen these past few days) fail then the American people have no choice but to commit themselves to civil disobedience to make their voices heard.

Their good (and reportedly longstanding) relationship with the Eugene police department worked out much to their benefit today; The doors were locked and everyone left inside the doorway was sited and released ( citing law: 41 CFR 102-74.390 by 10:30. [ read more ]

Germany: public service since 6 weeks on strike ! - The public service is on strike since 6 weeks. And this, because the german state wants its employees to work 40 hours a week - and not 38.5 hours a week like now - without paying them more money. In countless cities, towns, villages, nurses, kindergarden employees, states' office workers, street cleaners and so on did not do their job since 6 weeks...

Els estudiants fan vagues, les universitats s'ocupen... què està passant a frança?

El govern francès,sense seguir el debat tradicional dels processos legislatius, ha imposat una nova acta: “Loi sur l’égalité des chances”. Aquesta nova llei crea el contracte de responsabilitat parental que implica la pèrdua dels ajuts escolars en casos d'absentisme escolar, avança l'edat d'escolarització obligatòria de 16 a 14 anys, permet el treball nocturn a partir dels 15 anys i finalment crea nous tipus de contractes com el CPE que amplia el període de prova a dos anys i per tant permet l'acomiadament sense motiu durant un període molt més llarg. L'agost passat ja es va redactar una llei similar per a empreses amb menys de 20 treballadors amb conseqüències que ja s'han fet notar. Aquesta nova contractació redueix els drets de les persones treballadores i precaritza les seves vides. Moltes universitats estan en vaga o resten tancades encara per denunciar i demanar la retirada d'aquesta llei i, tot i que la repressió ha estat dura des dels inicis de les movilitzacions s'espera que les movilitzacions estudiantils, sindicals i d'altres col.lectius que hi ha actualment s'escampin i impliquin la resta de la societat francesa i europea.

The Most Beautiful Fireworks I Have Ever Seen: Remembering M19

Portland, 21.03.2006 10:39

March 19, 2006 was a beautiful sunny day. So sunny I decided to leave for the rally early. When I reached the waterfront a little after one o'clock, I was surprised to see a crowd already around one to two thousand people. I saw some familiar faces and made my rounds. Everyone I spoke to felt the rally was not going to get us out of Iraq any sooner, but everyone seemed to be enjoying the sunshine.

After about an hour, the crowd had doubled. Someone came up and greeted everyone and there was some peace and love music. Because I was at the rally to support the end of the Iraq war and not peace I went to the back of the crowd and watched the anarchist cheerleaders (they were awesome!).

A little while later I found the "bloc" and met some of the people from the Seattle Anti-imperialist group. The bloc had a banner that read "Fuck The Troops!" complete with a yellow ribbon crossed out, a circle A, and a circle E. Personally I thought this banner was great. It did not scape-goat our "leaders"; instead it called upon those holding the weapons to realize what they are doing is wrong. ] read more [

AUDIO FILE: Rally and March, March 19, 2006

What was accomplished? Each of those who attended will have to answer that for themselves. A thousand reasons for resisting oppression, all arising from one love of freedom, one compassion for all Human Beings, one faith in the general resilience of the Human Spirit.

This was an enormous event, both physically and emotionally. While standing at Broadway and Morrison, with the orange clad and black masked "detainees," the march stretched out away out of sight in both directions, north and south, while eastward I could see the vanguard of the March working its way north up 4th Avenue. Easily 30 blocks in length, probably more.

We take so much for granted in this country. It's good to get out into the streets and demonstrate the fact that we appreciate our Civil Liberties, and when Bush comes to shove, we will stand up for them and resist their gradual disappearance. It's necessary to respond as a Community to any assaualt upon the sovereignty of the people, upon their institutions, upon their capacity to trust one another. ] read more [

On March 19th, somewhere between 150 and 200 people rallied at the clock tower in Santa Cruz before marching down Pacific Avenue and up Front Street.

Global Student Revolt-From Paris to Auckland

Aotearoa, 21.03.2006 09:11

As students in Paris embarked on a massive insurgency against neo-liberal labour laws occupying buildings and rioting, thousands of students from schools across Auckland walked out of school in protest against youth rates, with a thousand turning up to an inspiring demonstartion of solidarity and direct action. Many students returned to school to be commended by their principals and teachers for taking a courageous stand against injustice. Messages of solidarity for the striking students have been released from the Unite union, Maritime Union, Green Party and the Council of Trade Unions. The walkout was organised by Aotearoa Radical Youth, a network of anticapitalist Auckland youth with support from

Support Indigenous Rights: Sign Free Grassy Narrows Petition

Oklahoma, 21.03.2006 05:39

In Ontario, Canada, an indigenous community called the Grassy Narrows First Nation are being subjected to human rights abuses. Logging companies, Weyerhaeuser and Abitibi are clear-cut logging their land without the community’s consent. This exploitation is poisoning their waters with toxins, robbing the community of economic opportunities, and destroying their way of life. Sign the petition - REPLACE THIS TEXT WITH HTML TO APPEAR ON FRONT PAGE In Ontario, Canada, an indigenous community called the Grassy Narrows First Nation are being subjected to human rights abuses. Logging companies, Weyerhaeuser and Abitibi are clear-cut logging their land without the community’s consent. This exploitation is poisoning their waters with toxins, robbing the community of economic opportunities, and destroying their way of life. Sign the petition - Fortunately, the Grassy Narrows Community is taking a stand against this injustice. On December 2nd, 2002, Grassy Narrows established a blockade on a logging road in their territory, sparking what is now the longest standing and highest profile indigenous logging blockade in Canadian history. But, three years later, logging is still taking place on remote sections of their land as the community does not have the resources to block all of the logging roads in their territory. Weyerhaeuser and Abitibi refuse to stop the logging, leave the land and respect the community’s right to self-determiniation within their traditional territory. Please sign the petition to pledge your support to the Grassy Narrows First Nation’s struggle to stop Weyerhaeuser and Abitibi from logging without their consent on their land, and secure the right to self-determination within their traditional territory.

&quot;Γαλλικός Μάρτης&quot;

Athens, 21.03.2006 03:09

Κλιμακώνονται οι κινητοποιήσεις που ξέσπασαν σ΄ όλη την Γαλλία (1, 2 ) από τις αρχές του Μάρτη ενάντια στο Συμβόλαιο Πρώτης Εργασίας (CPE) που επιτρέπει στους εργοδότες να απολύουν νέους εργαζόμενους από 15-25 χρόνων χωρίς καμιά αιτιολόγηση και χωρίς αποζημίωση στην πρώτη διετία της πρόσληψής τους. Η κυβέρνηση υποστηρίζει οτι έτσι θα χτυπήσει την ανεργία που στην Γαλλία κυμαίνεται απο 10 έως και 50% σε ορισμένες περιοχές.

Στις 18 Μαρτίου πάνω από ένα εκατομμύριο φοιτητές μαθητές και εργαζόμενοι διαδήλωσαν σε όλη την Γαλλία που κατέληξαν σε συγκρούσεις, στο σοβαρό τραυματισμό ενος διαδηλωτή και σε πολλές συλλήψεις.

Ήδη από τις αρχές Φλεβάρη έχουν ξεκινήσει οι καταλήψεις σχολών και μέχρι σήμερα, το 70% των Πανεπιστημίων της χώρας παραμένουν κατειλημμένα. Κι ενώ όλη η νεολαία είναι στο δρόμο, τα Ματ επιτίθενται στον κόσμο μέσα κι έξω απ΄τη Σορβόνη.

Σύντομα, στο χορό μπαίνουν και η καθεστωτική αριστερά καθώς και εργατικές συνομοσπονδίες. Το ίδιο και οι φασίστες, που υποβοηθούμενοι και καλυπτόμενοι από την αστυνομία, επιτίθενται στους διαδηλωτές.

ADAPT Kicks Off National Days of Action in Nashville, Tennessee

Tennessee, 21.03.2006 01:10

Hundreds of Differently Abled Persons Blockading Traffic in Nashville and Getting Arrested Nashville, TN: Several differently abled persons were arrested in the first day of direct action in Nashville after a day of action with hundreds of protesters in wheelchairs blockading the streets around the State Capital demanding a meeting with the Governor of Tennessee, Phil Bredesen. The Governor has said that he refuses to meet with the protesters, who number over four hundred. The protesters have come to Nashville from all over the country because Tennessee is a focal point in the war on health care access. Governor Bredesen, who has authorized Metro Police to arrest people in wheelchairs, is also responsible for the recent Tenncare cuts, which disenrolled 330,000 poor and uninsurable Tennesseans from the state's health insurance program.

M18 Recap - Chicago Activists March Down Michigan Avenue

Chicago, 21.03.2006 01:09

In what is believed to have been one of the largest anti-war protest in the United States, upwards of ten thousand people hit the streets of the Gold Coast Saturday night for the Festival of Rights march — the culmination of a day of activities marking public opposition to the war in Iraq on the third anniversary of the U.S. invasion.

The day began with over a dozen feeder marches throughout the area staged to marshall opposition to the war in grassroots communities. Those actions converged at a mass rally in Union Park and reassembly later that evening for the push to Michigan Ave. in what activists described as the return of free speech to Chicago's most famous corridor. The march was 'legally permitted', an important victory in the battle to win back civil liberties that have been increasingly proscribed since 9/11 — and which were completely derailed after police arrested over 500 peaceful protesters three years ago after promising to allow them to return down Michigan Avenue from an emergency protest against the beginning of the war.

100+ Take to the Streets in Monterey in Oposition to HR 4437

Santa Cruz, CA, 21.03.2006 01:09

On Wednesday March 15th, over one hundred activists congregated at Dennis the Menace Park in Monterey to voice their opinion on the new HR4437 bill that had just passed in the House of Representatives and is now on its way to the Senate. The activists included students, community members, Brown Berets, veterans, and children. After a rally at the park, the demonstrators marched to Downtown Monterey (Alvarado Street) to tell the general public how they felt. As the protest moved towards downtown the number of demonstrators increased as they found more supporters to their cause. At one point the demonstration blocked one lane of the road as the demonstrators took to the street. Read more

Overal, the openhack night was good. Around 10-12 people came. DJ Trashcandy from radioActive sanDiego spun some tunes. We ate pizza and drank wine. I did a short presentation on Electronic Civil Disobedence and Virtual Sit-Ins. Lea showed some film of antifascist protests in Berlin. Xavier from heads on fire talked a bit about community technology centers and bridging the gap between media activists and community technology activists. Jonathan showed some films from the Third World Majority foundation. We talked about a lot of projects people can get involved with if they want to use their tech skills for positive social change: indymedia, socalfreenet and their sherman heights wireless expansion, community technology centers, the borderlands hacklab...

The one overall critique of the night was that it was mostly white males, which we're really trying to go beyond. Hopefully next month we can do more outreach to more communities and get lots of different people there. In addition, it was mostly geeks and very few artists, so we'll have to call out for GEEKS AND ARTISTS to get together next month and share, connect, start a revolution.  

Next month, the 3rd wednesday of the month we're doing it again! Bring a friend! Bring something to share! Bring a question about technology or media! || ||

Green Scare: New Superceding and Added Indictments

Portland, 20.03.2006 14:39

On March 15th, Joyanna Zacher and Nathan Block were re-indicted under the same case number as the original Eco-11. In addition, Chelsea Gerlach has been indicted on new charges stemming from the University of Washington arson. Below is a text version of the entire new superseding indictment. The pdf version can be found on the at CLDC website

We have compared the 1/20 indictment with the superseding indictment. We listed the changes below. As you will note, most of the changes just add Block and Zacher for Romania II and Jefferson Poplar. However, Gerlach's name is added in section III of Counts 1 and 2 for the University of Washington arson.

Support Daniel McGowan [March update]

Portland, 20.03.2006 14:39

Update: Daniel is from New York, and has been an active member of the community, working on diverse projects such as demonstrations against the Republican National Convention, Really Really Free Markets, and supporting political prisoners such as Jeff "Free" Luers and others. Daniel was a graduate student earning a Master's degree in acupuncture and was working at, a nonprofit group that helps women in domestic abuse situations navigate the legal system, which is where he was arrested by federal marshals on December 7, 2005.

Daniel had originally been indicted separately, but his arrest comes in the context of a well-coordinated, multi-state sweep of numerous activists by the federal government, who has charged the individuals with practically every earth and animal liberation case left unsolved in the Northwest. Many of the charges, including Daniel's, are for cases whose statute of limitations were about to expire.

Daniel has been out on bail since February 8th and is on house arrest. He is in New York City, eagerly working on his legal defense, employed part-time at and spending time with family and friends. In order to help Daniel, his family and friends have created a support network (Family and Friends of Daniel McGowan) to assist in raising funds for Daniel's legal representation which is expected to be hundreds of thousands of dollars. We are asking his friends and supporters to donate what they can to help Daniel's family with the legal bills.

An alternative high school sponsored by a Portland church that was one of the primary backers of Ballot Measure 36 has received the approval of the Portland Public School Board to in the fall of 2006 with the support of public funds.

The so-called "Academy of Character and Ethics," or ACE, proposed by Mt. Olivet Baptist Church will open at Jefferson High School in North Portland in 2006 with about 50 students and grow to 200 students, according to the Oregonian .

Mt. Olivet was a major contributor to the Yes on 36 campaign, donating $15,000 to the 2004 measure that banned same-sex marriage.
