Priorities, spending, and poverty: NH's share of the war budget

New Hampshire, 18.08.2004 21:46

People talk about the costs of our war on Iraq and the cost of our country's military. But hundreds of billions of dollars doesn't mean much to most people. What if those costs were translated into something like new firetrucks or additional school teachers? And how much of that money is solely New Hampshire's share?

Askatasun = Freedom! Basque activists in Dublin tell their stories...

Ireland, 18.08.2004 19:24

Downloadable audio MP3 report - 64kbps 22Mb duration 37:36 Downloadable audio MP3 report - 64kbps 22Mb duration 37:36 Four Basque activists visited Dublin last night for an evening of information & discussion in the Teachers Club, Parnell Square, on the current political climate in the Basque Country; while back in Euskal Herria, the police went about dismantling a Basque autonomous centre, with housing activists and squatters doing their best to defend the building from demolition... Download the MP3 audio report from The Basque Country is a region that ovelaps the north east corner of the Spanish and south west corner of the French states. It is comprised of seven counties. The Basque language is one of the oldest in Europe; not related to any of the major Indo-European language groups, its origins are unknown. The Basque people have been involved in political struggles for many generations, most notably during the Franco years, when the fascist regime in Spain put the population under considerable strain, suppressing their culture and autonomy. Hiart Gilde San Vicente is the first speaker in the audio report from the banned political party Batasuna. She is the party's representative in their London office. Batasuna was outlawed through newly enacted legislation by the Spanish Government for alleged links with ETA, and was not permitted to campaign in elections. Hiart talks about the last few years for Batasuna, recent developments, and elections where Batasuna called for the public to spoil their vote as a show of support. She also deals with aspects of the political fallout from the March 11th bombing in Madrid, and how moderate Basque nationalists were first to blame ETA for political gain. Eyoitz Lizundia is the second speaker in the audio report, from the Basque prisoner support network Askatasuna. The Spanish state actively places Basque prisoners in jails hundreds of miles from their families and homes. This causes undue amount of economic and mental hardship on the prisoners families, who have to make long journeys to visit them. Basque prisoners are also denied any rights of association within the prison system in Spain and France, being placed in isolation or housed in different prison wings. Loren Mendigabal is the third speaker in the audio report. She served time in a French prison and spoke of how there is a campaign of both psychological and physical torture within the prison system against Basque political prisoners. Askatasuna is calling for a repatriation of all Basque political prisoners to the Basque country. They are also working to involve the prisoners as much as possible in the peace process. During the Q+A session, Hiart told the 30 people in attendance of the current situation with an autonomous centre/squat under attack by Spanish police. The police turned up in force with riot shields to accompany the bulldozers.

Nader Files for President in NY while Anti-Bush Forces Argue over the Bad or Terrible?

Hudson Mohawk, 18.08.2004 14:56

Ralph Nader filed more than 27,000 signatures yesterday to qualify for the ballot for President in New York State. Meanwhile, the debate continues among liberals and progressives about the wisdom of attacking Nader for opposing Kerry and Bush; whether Bush is a fascist; and, how best to defeat not only Bush but Bushism. There is increasing criticism of the support among liberals for the Democratic Party's effort to block Nader from the ballot. Yet some former Nader supporters still urge him not to run.

Why Hugo Chavez Won a Landslide Victory

Hudson Mohawk, 18.08.2004 14:46

Sunday’s overwhelming victory for Chavez has given him an even stronger mandate for his “revolution for the poor.” It should also give George Bush and John Kerry reason to rethink their attitude towards Hugo Chavez. Rather than demonizing him as a new Fidel Castro and stoking the opposition, US leaders should embrace Venezuela’s social transformation and the way it is empowering people like Olivia Delfino.

Baby Blue Buttons and Code Pink

NYC, 18.08.2004 12:43

Just as Mayor Mike Bloomberg was offering “well behaved protesters” baby-blue buttons, off-Broadway discounts, and tickets to the Museum of Sex, four activists with Code Pink were arrested hanging a banner that read. “You Say Welcome, We Say Where? Let Us Protest 8/29 in Central Park."”

According to Newsday, Bloomberg and tourism officials yesterday offered a unique package of discounts to the best-behaved demonstrators. In exchange, they must promise to obey city laws and regulations and pick up their blue pledge pin, Bloomberg said during a news conference at NYC & Co., the city's tourism bureau.

“If there's anything that says this city is open and accommodative, I suspect this program is," Bloomberg told a packed and incredulous news conference. “I don't know how many anarchists will want to wear this button ... But they still would get the discounts as long as they have the button.”

As the Mayor was speaking, protesters from the city Firefighter’s Union were stuck behind interlocking metal barricades, according to the AP.

Benefit to Support the SHAC 7

Santa Cruz, CA, 17.08.2004 23:50

Come dine in support of the SHAC7! There will be a four course vegan meal on August 27, 6:00pm, at the United Methodist Church in Santa Cruz. On May 26th, three Bay Area activists, as well as four others across the country, were arrested and charged with Federal Terrorism and "Interstate Stalking" charges as a result of their involvement in the campaign against Huntingdon Life Sciences (a notorious animal testing lab). Make no mistake -- this is not about terrorism or animal rights. The simple fact is that these charges are nothing more than an attempt to silence activists who have utilized their First Amendment right to speak out on controversial issues and tactics. If the government can get away with charging these activists with Terrorism, every protester in the US has something to worry about! [ SHAC 7 I Inside Huntingdon Life Sciences ]
