Zapatista rally &amp; march Chicano Park

San Diego, 12.04.2006 21:08

Here are some pictures of the Sat. Apr 8 2006 rally and march from Chicano Park to support our Zapatista brothers and sisters and also to join together in opposition to the racist, classist, imperialist statements coming from the Congress and U.S. Senate regarding immigration.

Over 300 people gathered in Chicano Park. After several local leaders spoke about HR 4437 and other efforts to blame immigrants for this nation's economic woes, we marched through Logan Heights. Neighbors smiled and gave us their Black Power and Brown Power signs. We chanted, "La Placa, La Migra: La Misma Porqueria!" and "Zapata Vive! La Lucha Sigue!"



Border Vigilantes &quot;Torch&quot; Mexican Restaurant

San Diego, 12.04.2006 21:08

Just before midnight on Monday, racist anti-Mexican vigilantes torched Mariachi's Mexican Bar and Grill at 12868 Campo Road located about 15 miles east of downtown San Diego and about 12 miles north of the US/Mexico border. The vigilantes left vile anti-Mexican graffiti painted in red on the walls. The racist profanities left on the walls are similar to those sent by e-mail to the Mexica Movement and to La Voz de Aztlan recently.



G8 Police get it wrong .......YET AGAIN !!!!!

Scotland, 12.04.2006 20:40

Edinburgh yesterday saw the latest in a series of failed prosecutions of G8 cases when G. E. was acquitted of some of the most serious trumped-up charges so far. The antiquated law of “mobbing and rioting” was rolled out on this occasion, with the accusation that G. had been involved in police assault and incitement to riot. The charge carries with it a maximum 5-year prison sentence.

Bristol Zoo Protest

Bristol, 12.04.2006 17:38

15 Year-old Helps Launch Campaign with the Western Animal Rights Network 15 Year-old Helps Launch Campaign with the Western Animal Rights Network Bristol Animal Rights Coaltion writes: A campaign has been launched to oppose Bristol Zoo's plans for expansion in their creation of a 'wildlife park' near Cribs Causeway, as well as to raise awareness thatanimals are not ours to use for entertainment. 15 year-old Lloyd Graham from South Gloucestershire, has helped launch the campaign with the Western Animal Rights Network. Lloyd, having already started his own animal rights group - SGAR (South Gloucestershire Animal Rights), is working with activists in Bristol to stop the new attraction from being built. Lloyd says, "Animals are not ours for entertainment in any way. The park portrays itself as an 'eco-zoo' as a centre for endangered species and for the education of the public, but it is little more than a tourist attraction holding animals captive for our entertainment. Zoos, such as Bristol zoo, put the 'con' in conservation. If the planned £50 million for the new park was spent on real conservation efforts around the world, sustainable change could be achieved...". Lloyd and the group will be holding a demonstration at Bristol Zoo on Monday 17th April, as part of National Zoo Awareness Day, with other actions taking place across the UK, please attend!

Students Kick Military Recruiters off UC Santa Cruz

San Francisco Bay Area, 12.04.2006 13:39

On April 11th, 2006, in spite of the pouring rain and administrative attempts to stifle students’ free speech, Students Against War (SAW) organized over 150 students to march from the center of campus to the job fair, where they nonviolently prevented access to military recruiters through sit-ins and other measures. After about an hour and a half of negotiations and students’ refusal to back down, military recruiters left the job fair.

Derrick Jensen Speaking in Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz, CA, 12.04.2006 12:08

Derrick Jensen spoke at the Vet's Hall in downtown Santa Cruz on March 29th, 2006, as a benefit for the legal fees of EcoPrisoners arrested in the recent 'Green Scare'. Jensen emphasizes the hate, dishonesty, and destructiveness in contemporary industrialized culture. He argues that this culture will soon collapse because of the damage being done to the planet.

Jensen proposes that a different way of life is possible, and it can be seen in many past societies including many Native American cultures. This different way of life is characterized by honesty, appreciation of beauty, and connection with the natural world. Politically Jensen's work is in favor of a revolution in values, the self, and society. His ideas are often in line with eco-anarchism, anarcho-primitivism and neo-Tribalism. Read more

From Iraqi War Zone to Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz, CA, 12.04.2006 11:38

Iraqi Bloggers Faiza Al Araji and her son, Raed Jarrar, spoke in Santa Cruz on April 7th, 2006, about their experiences in Iraq.

A Family in Baghdad is written by Faiza and her three sons. The blog is written as a family’s diary, though most of the posts are from Faiza. Faiza is a strong, independent woman, and writes about the continuing war in Iraq and her daily life, such as moving from one residence to another, or what it’s like when a bomb explodes near where you are buying vegetables.

Raed in the Middle brings together news reports from diverse sources and adds his own commentary to what is occurring in the Middle East. Knowledgeable, informative, and opinionated, Raed’s blog offers a critical look at Iraq’s state of affairs. Read more and visit the blogs

The NHS in Crisis

United Kingdom, 12.04.2006 09:39

Crisis can be an overused word, but in the case of the NHS it’s difficult to get across the scale of the problem without using it. Three quarters of the NHS trusts in the UK are reporting that financial deficits are forcing them to make some form of cut backs this financial year.

But, hold on. The government says it’s putting more money into the NHS than ever before. For once the government is telling the truth - they are spending far more on the NHS than ever, but the cuts are still taking place... how on earth can they both be true?

The answer is simple, it's not a question of how much money, but where it goes. Private companies have become more deeply entrenched in the health service than ever before, on a level that would have been unimaginable even under the Tories.

Vigil at the Recruiting Center: Tuesday Report

Portland, 12.04.2006 07:08

I went to the Recruiting Center Vigil tonight. There were over a dozen people there from 5:30 to 6:30 pm. It happens every Tuesday at the Armed Forces Recruitment Center at 1317 NE Broadway in Portland. Most of the people held signs, while a couple people handed out info to passersby. The response from people on the street and from those in cars was overwhelmingly positive. Dozens of drivers honked their support. To them I say thank you. I also say, please come out and join this effort.

Some people at the vigil are talking about starting up another day. If more people show up, it can become a third and a fourth. I know there are enough people in Portland opposed to the war who can come out. Let's all make this happen! There were 10,000 at the anti-war march. If just 10% of those people would come out once a month that would be 30 people every day at the recruiting center! This is a solid next step after having a large march!

BLM Proposes Clearcuts in South Umpqua Watershed

Portland, 12.04.2006 05:38

The Roseburg Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is proposing to clearcut 585 acres of mature and old growth forests, leaving as few as 6 trees per acre, in the South Myrtle Creek watershed, between Roseburg and Canyonville. The BLM is asking you for your opinion on what alternatives they should include in their environmental analysis. The BLM is required to consider alternatives to their proposed action. If enough people write to the BLM and ask them to consider another alternative, they must do it. We want the BLM to consider an alternative that thins instead of a "regeneration harvest" (a clearcut with 6 trees per acre left).

There are at least 8 pairs of northern spotted owls that use these forests for foraging. Logging will occur so close to some owl nests that the BLM thinks there could be an "incidental take" of 5 pairs of owls. "Incidental take" means these owls might die, not because they will be directly killed, but they because their grocery store, food source on 585 acres, will be eliminated.

Laughing Horse Book Collective Closing its Doors

Portland, 12.04.2006 01:38

The Laughing Horse Book Collective founded in 1985 on NW 23rd Ave in 1985 : since 1993 at its present location at 37th and Division has lost it's lease and must move in 30 days. The collective calls upon the community for support. The Building in which the bookstore is currently located has been remodeling. The new ownwer want the bookstore out to remodel the space. After the remodel they want to charge "market rates" which would increase the rent 100%.

The need for Laughing Horse has never been greater according to Tim Calvert one of the founding members of Laughing Horse Books. The reality is we are at extreme risk of going out of business unless the community comes forward with help in the form of an affordable location. Please call Laughing Horse Bookstore with any information or leads on potential move options.

The Manitowoc Herald Times Reporter has published a carefully altered Associated Press article on its website with the headline and lead sentence citing mere "hundreds" of people as having rallied for immigrant rights in Madison on April 10.

However, the original AP article numbers the crowd as "thousands" and includes this sentence, excised by the Manitowoc paper: "Police estimated the crowd at around 10,000."
