H Ράις δεν ήταν ευπρόσδεκτη

Athens, 26.04.2006 04:39

Μερικές χιλιάδες διαδηλωτών, από ολόκληρο το φάσμα της αριστεράς και του αναρχικού - αντιεξουσιαστικού χώρου κατέβηκαν στους δρόμους της Αθήνας, αντιδρώντας στην επίσκεψη της Κοντολίζα Ράις. Ήδη από την προηγούμενη μέρα τα ΜΑΤ είχαν αποκλείσει το Πάντειο, ενώ τα ξημερώματα της Τρίτης περιπολικά και ασφαλίτες είχαν γεμίσει τους δρόμους της Αθήνας.

Κι ενώ τα "υψηλά ιστάμενα" πρόσωπα έπαιζαν με τη διπλωματία και τον εντυπωσιασμό σε συναντήσεις "κορυφής", ισχυρές αστυνομικές δυνάμεις (οι ίδιοι μιλάνε για παραπάνω από 3.000 αστυνομικούς) απέκλεισαν βασικές οδικές αρτηρίες και προέβησαν σε ουσιαστική απαγόρευση διαδηλώσεων στο κέντρο της Αθήνας. Έγινε εκτεταμένη και παρατεταμένη χρήση δακρυγόνων όταν οι διαδηλωτές επιχείρησαν να διασπάσουν τα μπλόκα. Κατά τη διάρκεια των επεισοδίων, που αργότερα επεκτάθηκαν, προσήχθησαν 9 άτομα και τραυματίστηκαν τουλάχιστον δύο διαδηλωτές.

Zapatista! the Movie at Voz Alta, Wed, Apr 26 7pm

San Diego, 26.04.2006 04:09

From June 17-19th, Delegate Zero of the Zapatistas will be coming to Tijuana as part of La Otra Campana. People will converge on San Diego and Tijuana from all over the US for this historical opportuniy to meet the Zapatistas first hand and take part in La Otra Campana, a new campaign aimed at radically transforming politics through coordination of groups on the left organizing outside of electoral politics against capitalism. A member of the o.r.g.a.n.i.c. collective will speak about the plans for June and what you can do to help!

FILM SCREENING, Wednesday, April 26, 2006: ZAPATISTA! is an inspiring first-hand account of a struggle that will challenge the way you think about the world. Armed with sticks and words against a 'First World' military, the Zapatistas were able to hold their ground. Ignored by a mainstream press, the Zapatistas have used poems, children's stories, videos, and the internet, to permanently transform the political imagination of a nation.

The film starts at 7pm at Voz Alta on 1544 Broadway, downtown San Diego. $3-$5 donation, light refreshments. Learn more at:  http://www.bignoisefilms.com/zap

Also, the Tactical Ice Cream Unit will be on hand as part of the Center for Tactical Magic's West Coast tour! The Tactical Ice Cream Unit (TICU) rolls through the city in an act of intervention that replaces cold stares with frosty treats and nourishing knowledge. Combining a number of successful activist strategies (Food-Not-Bombs, Copwatch, Indymedia, infoshops, etc) into one mega-mobile, the TICU is the Voltron-like alter-ego of the cops' mobile command center.

'Cover Tennessee' Won't Cover Me

Tennessee, 26.04.2006 01:10

My name in Misti Whitaker and I have Lupus, a disease that tricks my immune system into thinking my cells and tissues are foreign substances to be destroyed. It’s taken a toll on my kidneys to the point that I was awaiting a kidney transplant when TennCare was taken away. I lost health insurance coverage once before (removed from my parent’ plan at age 21), but it wasn’t as scary because I wasn’t as sick. Couldn’t get coverage on my own because of my pre-existing condition. Mom has called every insurance company out there—including the one’s supplied by the State. No private insurance provider will cover me.

The Nepali people now are holding their breaths to see if the promised political solution to the Maoist war and the long withheld constitutional assembly come about as the inevitable jockying for control of the state now begins.

Macho Men and State Capitalism - Is Another World Possible?

Arkansas, 25.04.2006 17:11

* Latin America is boiling with revolutionary potential these days that could redefine economics, politics and social relations. But sometimes things aren't always as they seem. Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is widely seen to be at the center of Latin America's transformation by building a regional trade bloc through the creation of ALBA and Venezuela's membership in Mercosur to oppose U.S. dominance and its constant push for free trade agreements with Latin American governments.

Net Neutrality Death or Life of Internet Decided in US Congress NOW, contact info!

Portland, 25.04.2006 13:09

Decisions being made now will shape the future of the Internet for a generation. Before long, all media -- TV, phone and the Web -- will come to your home via the same broadband connection. The dispute over net neutrality is about who'll control access to new and emerging technologies.

On the Internet, consumers are in ultimate control -- deciding between content, applications and services available anywhere, no matter who owns the network. There's no middleman. But without net neutrality, the Internet will look more like cable TV. Network owners will decide which channels, content and applications are available;... [or denied.]

¡Apoyo a la HUELGA de los INMIGRANTES! Strike &amp; march on May Day!

Portland, 25.04.2006 13:09

Millions of immigrants are taking to the streets in protest against the vicious legislation Congress has been rigging up against them. There are bills that would turn 10-12 million people in this country into felons overnight, bills that would lock millions of people into second class status for 12-13 years before they could get citizenship, bills for a "guest worker" program to super-exploit the 1.5 million Mexican, Caribbean and other workers in agriculture, bills that would subject immigrants to a police-state regime, and much more. Besides these bills, this great eruption of protest is also connected with the underlying anger that has for years been building against the racial discrimination and oppression that non-white immigrants are subjected to.

Driving the reactionary Congressional crusade is the fact that the capitalists want immigrant labor without rights so that they can more profitably exploit it. Laws that keep millions of immigrant workers living in fear of deportation if they strike or otherwise stand up for their rights serves this purpose, as do "guest worker" laws that deny these workers the same rights as other workers. In this way the profits of the capitalists are maximized while the living and working conditions of the working class as a whole are driven downward.

Portland, 25.04.2006 13:09

The Lanarkshire Health United protest was the second protest of the day which aimed to highlight the scale of public anger over NHS Lanarkshire’s plans to close either Hairmyers or Monklands A&amp;E units, with Monklands being the “Clear preferred option”. A public consultation on the proposal to close one of Lanarkshire’s Accidents &amp; Emergencies Units- which began in late January and is expected to end on the 28th April; cited that problems with lack of consultants and the need to bring working hours into line with European legislation are among the reasons given for the need to reduce the number of A&amp;E’s in Lanarkshire.

New Zealand Workers prepare for a Showdown with Nats

Aotearoa, 25.04.2006 04:11

The Engineering Printing and Manufacturing Union (EPMU) which represents 50,000 workers in 10 industries has announced its intention to hold a mass stopwork meeting and then march on Parliament on July 20 – 90 days from today. [Press Release] The protest action has been planned to scare Wayne Mapp, the National Party industrial relations spokesperson, into scrapping the Employment Relations (Probationary Employment) Amendment Bill, which would allow employers to sack new workers within ninety days of starting a new job. “It will affect everybody – from a 16-year-old starting his or her first job, to the 45-year-old with a mortgage and family to support. They could be sacked without even being given a reason, and won’t be able to do a thing about it” said Andrew Little from the EPMU. It is particularly ironic that the EPMU have decided to give Mapp ninety days notice of nation wide stoppages as the same length of time will be given to new workers until they hae job security.

Thursday, April 20 2006 Santa Barbara The Santa Barbara County Association of Governments (SBCAG) approved today by a 12-0-1 vote (Solvang abstained) an ambitious expenditure plan to extend for 30 years the current Measure D sales tax for transportation purposes set to expire in 2010. Agreement on this plan represents a historic moment for SBCAG, capping a contentious and divisive process that pitted road maintenance against transit needs; South Coast against North County; local control versus regional projects; and freeway widening against commuter rail. When the dust settled, the Board emerged unified and most of the attending public erupted in cheers.

The Tennessee Coalition for Environmental Justice held a rally on Earth Day, April 22, at 9 a.m., with members of the group and concerned Dickson citizens to call for clean up of the landfill.
