Nuclear power? No thanks!

United Kingdom, 27.03.2006 11:38

The building of 10 new nuclear power stations, the replacing of the Trident nuclear submarinesa and recently Tony Blair announcing the governments new nuclear power policy at Nottingham University, all sparked protests and this week has been no exception. A protest took place in Derby where campaigners handed a letter to Mrs Beckett, head of DEFRA, outside Derby City Council about the dangers of nuclear powerstations. In both Nottingham and Derby pickets took place. In Nottingham on the Market Square people from Nottingham CND informed passers-by about the controversial replacement of Trident, UK's largest nuclear submarine project and asked people to sign the petition. You can sign the petition here.

Direct Action

Portland, 27.03.2006 10:38

The notion of direct action, while overly broad in definitions and interpretations, can be simplified to summarize one idea - effectiveness. An action is direct if it is the most effective step taken to stop an act of injustice or oppression. At times direct action may include collecting signatures on petitions, setting up an information table, talking to friends and neighbors, and voting. And at other times, direct action may mean engaging in civil disobedience, sabotage, violence and other illegal activities. Which activity and tactic chosen at a particular time and place should directly relate to that which is going to be the most effective, period. Why this incredibly simplistic idea is overlooked and rarely acted upon today in US social and political movements is not so much a mystery as it is a disgrace.

Here it is, late March of 2006. Inside the United States we have over 37 million people living under the federally established mockery of a poverty line. Millions more beyond that still cannot acquire the necessary finances to have basic needs met. Since the 1960s, we have allowed 90% of our old growth forests to be destroyed, and our water and air to be increasingly contaminated. Today, over 45 million people live without health care in the United States, including over 8.5 million children. And we continue to sit back and watch - as though it were another episode of the 5:00 news or our favorite sit-com - our pseudo-democratic political machine become further dysfunctional and unjust.



Report Back on Intelligent Design Experiment - March 26th, 2006

Portland, 27.03.2006 10:38

Another strange phenomena I have noticed lately is that I appear to have established some sort of 'bridge head' within the Christian church. I don't want to make to much of this. Consider the churches of the world to be Europe and Russia together. Well, based on what I have picked up on, I appear to be holding a small patch of beach along the shores of Normandy. Its not much, but its a start.

As I have considered this unusual development, I have become more and more agitated, and my agitation drives me to pick up a keyboard. It is for this reason that I write, not to report on that experiment, since that could wait for Easter, or some weeks after Easter, just depending on how it all works out, but I cannot wait that long.



Granny D Speaking At PSU in Support of Campaign Finance Reform

Portland, 27.03.2006 10:38

In 1990 Dorris Haddock, affectionately known as Granny D, walked 3200 miles across the United States in her 90th year to draw attention to the need for campaign finance reform. Quoting an article about Granny D by Ralph Nader in Common Dreams, from the San Francisco Guardian:
"She called her march a "pilgrimage" for social justice and relied on strangers for food and shelter. Thousands of people have supported her, she says, a testament not only to their generosity but also to their passionate commitment to ending the corruption of our democracy by big-money interests. Along the way, Granny D has proved that one person can make a difference. Her walk has generated enormous media interest. She has appeared on NBC Nightly News, Good Morning America, National Public Radio, and many other programs to issue a clarion call for reform.

Finally, her 14-month pilgrimage concluded in Washington, D.C. She began her final day's trek in Arlington National Cemetery, beginning, she said, "among the graves of Arlington - so that those spirits, some of whom may be old friends, might join us today and that we might ask of them now, 'Did you, brave spirits, give your lives for a government where we might stand together as free and equal citizens. Or did you give your lives so that laws might be sold to the highest bidder?'"

Tuttle, OK city manager given choice about being an idiot...which one do you think he made?

Oklahoma, 27.03.2006 03:39

Tuttle City Manager only manages to make a fool of himself and of most other Oklahomans. The city manager of Tuttle, OK has shown his complete lack of technical acumen despite his purported "22 years in computer systems engineering and operation", and being "computer literate" as well as supposedly having a "background in computers, and having built the city of Harrah’s website." "In addition to his time with the cities of Hugo and Harrah, Taylor spent 22 years working with E Systems as a program manager. Seventeen of those years were in Virginia, working on a classified government program. He has run his own computer business and worked for the Choctaw Electric Cooperative as their internet technologies manager." For his $63,000 per year salary, and $500 per month automobile allowance, the fine people of Tuttle, OK get this kind of service: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2006/03/24/tuttle_centos/ http://www.shortnews.com/shownews.cfm?id=53521&CFID=15579646&CFTOKEN=68585571 http://changelog.complete.org/node/461 Be thankful we're not getting all the government we're paying for.

Discrimination in OK Education

Oklahoma, 27.03.2006 03:39

Report March 23, the OK State Dept of Ed reversed policy to allow public schools to bar students' gay rights groups from meeting on school grounds. New policy also allows discrimination on the basis of "family, social or cultural backgrounds." March 23, the OK State Dept of Ed reversed policy to allow public schools to bar students' gay rights groups from meeting on school grounds. New policy also allows discrimination on the basis of "family, social or cultural backgrounds." At [their March 23rd] meeting of the Oklahoma State Department of education voted to reverse its nondiscrimination policy with respect to sexual 0rientation. At the request of Rep. Kevin Calvey, a candidate for Congressional District #5, the State Board of Education made a rule change that repeals their current sexual orientation policy to be more in sync with federal and state law. Calvey stated that this new rule will protect public schools from having to allow homosexual rights organizations to hold meetings on school grounds and will also give school board more control over personnel decisions. First of all, this issue was not on the agenda for the State Board of Education. The Board is subject to the Open Meeting Policy as it receives money from the State and Federal Government. Oklahoma has a very interesting State Board of Education structure. The State Superintendent is elected by the people, chairs the State Board of Education, prepares the agenda and also has a vote. It certainly brings into question the "conflict of interest" policy. Also, in 1990, the United States Supreme Court upheld the federal Equal Access Law. This new rule is in complete violation of that Law. Gay and Lesbian students do have the right to meet on school property as long as they adhere to the policy of school clubs and organizations as established by the local boards of education, i.e., faculty sponsors, etc. And this new rule will not protect students from discrimination based on family, social or cultural backgrounds. Please call Sandy Garrett, the State Superintendent and tell them of your displeasure of their action to abandon the premise of safe schools for ALL of Oklahoma's children. Sandy Garrett State Superintendent of Public Instruction 2500 North Lincoln, Room 121 Oklahoma City, OK 73105 (405) 521-3301 sandy_garret@sde.state.ok.us [above alert courtesy of Keith Smith]

Police File Charges Against Watsonville Brown Berets For Peaceful Protest

San Francisco Bay Area, 27.03.2006 02:44

On Saturday, March 25th, Watsonville saw the largest march for peace and justice in the history of the city. Documented and undocumented workers, families and allies marched in solidarity with anti-war activists in a peaceful march though the city of Watsonville. The route had been pre-planned and sent to the police. Crowd security was provided by the Watsonville Brown Berets. People marched down the furthest right hand lane of the four lane roads and traffic was moving in both directions.

Yet, after the march, the Watsonville Police Department targeted one organizer (a Brown Beret) and wrote him a citation with 8-10 counts against him, including criminal charges. They will also be charging the Brown Berets for police overtime. This was an effort to show people that “…they can’t do whatever they want to,” in the words of the Watsonville Police.

Residents came from everywhere to use the opportunity to be heard. This has been a silent population until now. Silent because they are working 12-16 hour days in the fields, hotels, and factories so Americans can enjoy the lifestyle and economic privilege they are accustomed to.

PLEASE HELP THE BROWN BERETS FIGHT THE CHARGES AND THE POWER STRUCTURE WHICH IS TRYING TO “TEACH US ALL A LESSON.” ACT NOW!!!! Call Captain Manny Solano: (831) 768-3300 (leave message) or (831) 750-2943 (cell phone) and tell him to simply, DROP ALL CHARGES AGAINST THE BROWN BERETS, financial and criminal.

Justice is for “Just Us”

Urbana-Champaign, 26.03.2006 21:09

Community Court Watch begins It was Illinois native Richard Pryor who first told the joke that American justice was for “just-us,” it was only an instrument of white power. Whether Vice President Dick Cheney, lobbyist Jack Abramoff, Enron executive Ken Lay, or celebrity caterer Martha Stewart, these figures are not served the same justice as the rest of the 2.3 million Americans who sit in America's prisons. But we do not have to look to Washington D.C. to find stories of white collar crime, the crimes often committed by white-skinned authorities who hold high-powered positions. Several recent examples have been exposed in Champaign County.

Estudiantes y precarios franceses en lucha contra un nuevo contrato basura. CPE

estrecho / madiaq, 26.03.2006 19:08

Desde la semana pasada, miles de jóvenes de institutos y universidades llevan protagonizando acciones, ocupaciones y movilizaciones para rechazar la nueva propuesta de ley del Gobierno. Una reforma laboral que propone un nuevo contrato para menores de 26 años que permitiría en los 2 primeros años de contratación despedir a los jóvenes trabajadores sin ningún motivo justificado. Un clarísimo ataque a los sectores jóvenes de la fuerza de trabajo, ya en sí precarizados que la juventud francesa no esta permitiendo. Los sindicatos también se ha sumando a la protesta.

En los últimos días cientos de iniciativas por todo el país, se suman a movilizaciones masivas de estudiantes, a la ocupación de la soborna y acciones contra la precarización de la cultura y la formación. Los periódicos hablan de un nuevo 68, pero sería más apropiado de hablar de una insurgencia precaria y estudiantil. Desde Italia han partido autobuses y trenes para apoyar las protestas que están dando en los últimos días.
Tras la increíble movilización que toma París, los disturbios y la potencia de la protesta de los precarios, el gobierno está tratando de dar marcha atrás suavizando el contrato CPE. Aún así las movilizaciones siguen creciendo y diversificándose con una gran riqueza. No sabemos donde llegará esto. El próximo martes hay convocada una huelga a nivel nacional para seguir arriconando al gobierno. Se espera un respuesta masiva.

:: Videos de las movilizaciones estudiantiles en París.
:: Estudiantes franceses toman universidad de la Sorbona.
:: La rebelión contra el contrato basura para jóvenes se endurece en Francia.

Tuesday 28th, so while a leaked email hints that the council are confident many of the buildings will remain open as normal, Liz Windsor writes; Local trade unionists are scheduled to hold a mass rally at College Green, Bristol on Tuesday in support of the national strike against attacks on pensions. Despite scarcely a mention in the mainstream media this will be the largest number of unions taking part in coordinated action since the General Strike of 1926! An all out strike of members of eleven trade unions is taking place in Bristol and across Britain on 28th March to oppose attacks upon the Local Government Pension Scheme. This will be the largest number of unions taking part in coordinated action since the General Strike of 1926! So far however, there has been little coverage in the mainstream media. A mass rally is scheduled to take place at College Green on Tuesday....Such attacks on pension rights undermine the future prospects and quality of life of all working people. Yes, that means YOU, YOUR WORKMATES AND FRIENDS, YOUR CHILDREN and YOUR GRANDCHILDREN. In France students and workers are fighting together to protect rights in the workplace and resist precarity; we cannot afford to sleep while conditions deteriorate this side of the channel. Join your union. Support your union. If your workplace is not unionised, fight to join a union. Keep your union on the case and relevant.

Los talleres de artesanos amenazados por el PGOU

estrecho / madiaq, 26.03.2006 09:08

De espalda a la ciudadanía, en las vacaciones de verano y con “nocturnidad”, han desaparecido del Plan General de Ordenación Urbana de Sevilla (PGOU) los locales de artesanos de los barrios de San Luis, San Julián y San Marcos. Durante el período de alegaciones una “mano negra” ha conseguido cambiar el color morado con el que los planos protegían los corralones y talleres, por el amarillo de la especulación inmobiliaria.

Durante cientos de años los artesanos formaron parte indisociable de la ciudad intramuros. La degradación urbana del sector norte del casco histórico en la segunda mitad del siglo XX permitió que estos oficios permanecieran en los talleres mientras que los propietarios de los inmuebles esperaban la revalorización que por fin ahora llega. La manera tan singular como entiende nuestro ayuntamiento la cultura y el patrimonio, tan al gusto del sector inmobiliario, permitirá la “higienización” y macdonalización del sector norte de casco antiguo en beneficio de los de siempre, expulsando a polígonos y periferias la diversidad que no encaja con el capitalismo global y un turismo basado en el simulacro.

Ante ello se ha organizado la resistencia con la Plataforma de Artesanos del Casco Antiguo (PACA) al frente y numerosos colectivos ciudadanos que de nuevo tendrán que utilizar su tiempo y su energía en reivindicar algo que los poderes públicos democráticos municipales tendrían que garantizar en su nombre, en vez de jugar a la ocultación y al engaño. Lo que no tienen previsto es que con estas agresiones los movimientos ciudadanos tejen nuevas redes de apoyo, nuevas complicidades y se fortalecen.

>>Lunes 20 de marzo: Concentración en defensa de los corrales de artesanos amenazados por el nuevo PGOU
>>Sábado 25 de marzo: Jornada de puertas abiertas de visita a los talleres

Water, a right

Over a million people in the world has no access to drinking water. More than two million have no appropriate hygienic services at their disposal and mortality due to diseases transmitted by the water are estimated in more than five millions per year. Furthermore, the last 30 years have seen a 50% decline on fresh water species, a very high percentage compared to species of marine and forest ecosystems. This is only the tip of the iceberg, of a reality present all around the world.

Is spite of this, the representatives of developed countries and financial organizations that have taken part in the World Water Forum have objected to include in the final statement the "human basic right to water", arguing they consider it "an unimportant subject". Developing countries and representatives of social movements present at Mexic have announced they will not stop insisting on this demand.

Water in our environment: [Delta Plan] The illegal catch of Riera Vella's fish begins before the dry up + Enough golf courses! [Ebre's Land::Future for sale] + In front of golf course, spanish way boycott + Save Pineda de Mar's brook (Alt Maresme) + Illegal wells extract 50% of water in Spain
