Code Pink activists showed up on Mother’s Day to challenge the War Party. They took their case directly to the White House.

Cindy Sheehan said they are “making a difference.” And, Actress Susan Sarandon read an open letter to Laura Bush, in which she mocked Laura’s husband, “The Decider,” as a warmonger.

Boatyard on eviction alert

United Kingdom, 15.05.2006 00:09

Boaters occupying Castle Mill boatyard in Jericho are facing a possible eviction in the next three weeks, with a first visit from the bailiffs expected this Monday (15th May).

The yard, an indispensable facility for Oxford's narrowboat community, has been occupied since July last year to block British Waterways' attempt to sell the site on to property developers. The emphasis has been on keeping the site going as a working boatyard, and 8 boats have now been craned onto the yard for essential repairs and maintainence, something that no other yard in the area can do.

Despite boaters raising huge public support, defeating the original plan by Bellway Homes to build housing on the yard, getting the city council to pass a motion of support and pointing out British Waterways' obligation in law to provide vital services for Oxford's residential boaters, the eviction and development plans are still ploughing on with a mindless momentum of their own, probably fuelled by Oxford's high property prices.

If you would be able to help out in the event of an eviction, join the phone tree by texting your number to the site mobile (07788 915545), emailing or ringing the site office (01865 559481). Or get down to the boatyard in person!

Parliament Sq. Protest in Peril

United Kingdom, 14.05.2006 20:40

On Monday the 8th, the state won their appeal against the decision that the repressive new SOCPA legislation could not be applied reactively to the protest which Brian Haw has been staging on Parliament Square for almost 5 years.

Since Monday there has been sporadic police activity at the site of the protest, and the police have sought to impose conditions on Brian and co-protestor Alex.

Regular updates have been posted on Indymedia UK. The timeline below is drawn from them.

All Newborns To Be Microchipped?

Portland, 14.05.2006 17:40

Although it seems impossible, plans are well underway to control every move and thought of the American population once the New World Order ends it period of extended violence, a stage of takeover the country is now experiencing.

Jody Paulson Radio4All RFID Commentary: You've no doubt heard of RFID tags. They are used in tracking animals and many commercial products. They basically transmit information, in many cases just a number. But, as we all know, a unique number in a database can be connected with whatever information we desire. Give me your social security number, and with the proper clearances I can find out your credit history, job history, criminal history, shopping history, medical history -- you name it.

RFID tags are currently being used in the Sutter, California school district to simplify attendance-taking, potentially reduce vandalism and "improve student safety." Right now they are being worn as badges, but there are many RFID advocates who want to implant the tags under the skin -- so they don't get lost. The school's principal hopes to add bar codes to the existing ID's so that students can use them to pay for cafeteria meals and check out library books.

Passive RFID tags don' t need a power supply: the electric current induced in the antenna by the incoming scan provides enough power for the tag to send a response. They can be read from up to 5 meters (or yards) away. Imagine what life would be like if everyone was forced, like the kids at Brittan elementary, to wear RFID tags, or worse, have them implanted under the skin? It'd sure make things easy for the guys in authority, wouldn't it? A cop zaps a guy from his car and his computer returns a prior drug conviction. There's probable cause!

Judge Orders World-Can't-Wait Activist To Jail Psych Unit

Portland, 14.05.2006 17:40

May 9: Judge Timothy McGinty forcibly incarcerated Carol Fisher in the psych unit of the Cuyahoga County Jail in downtown Cleveland, where she now sits for an indefinite period of time.

In a hastily called hearing yesterday, Judge McGinty made a highly unusual and outrageous decision to force Carol to undergo a state psychological exam as part of her pre-sentencing investigation. From the very start of Carol's case, the judge has openly said that she must have mental problems for resisting an unlawful and brutal encounter with Cleveland Heights police. He went even further in yesterday's hearing, saying that her opposition to the Bush regime makes her "delusional." McGinty started off the hearing by making Carol stand up and had one of her attorneys read her t-shirt, which said: "Wanted for Illegally Crossing Borders: The Bush Regime

McGinty then said this was proof of her delusion! He also kept saying Carol "wants" to go to jail, and that she has a "martyr complex." When Carol tried to explain why she wouldn't take this test, the judge's only response was, "I do not negotiate with felons."

Boycott of Horizon Organic Dairy Products

Portland, 14.05.2006 17:40

Horizon foods is owned by corporate giant Dean Foods. Horizon is now raising their dairy cows in giant organic feedlots. A nationwide boycott has begun. Here is more information.
One month ago, after a poll of our members, the Organic Consumers Association called on consumers to boycott dairy companies like Horizon and Aurora for their practice of raising "organic" cattle on intensive confinement feedlots.

Alberta Coop took Horizon products off the shelves about a year ago. A number of natural food stores and co-ops across the U.S. are also beginning to respond to concerned consumers and removing suspect dairy products from their stores. The Wedge Co-op in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the second largest co-op in the U.S., no longer carries Horizon products. In Colorado, the Boulder Co-op Market, has also discontinued stocking Horizon products. Amy Wyatt, Assistant General Manager for the Co-op, says, "Based on our concerns regarding Horizon's practices, we didn't feel that continuing to carry this company's products was consistent with our mission and values."

Dean Foods, Horizon's parent company, is also starting to come under fire for abandoning U.S. organic soybean farmers and importing cheap soybeans from China, where organic standards are dubious, and farm labor wages and conditions are abysmal. Dean Foods now controls the nation's largest organic soymilk brand, Silk, as well as the largest organic tofu brand, White Wave.

New Arson Indictment in WA Greenscare

Portland, 14.05.2006 17:40

They indicted another person on the UW arson, gave Briana Waters a
'use of a destructive device' charge [carrying a 30 year mandatory
minimum] and indicted one person and cooperating witness/informant
Kevin Tubbs for the Olympia APHIS/ADC arson.

It seems that the trend is for each individual state to indict people
for every incident that took place in their district. i.e. while
incidents outside of Oregon are named in the conspiracy part of the
Oregon case, only individual states can indict for the actual
incident. So, Oregon can name incidents like the UW arson or the Vail
arson in the Oregon conspiracy charges but only Washington State and
Colorado can actually charge the people. Thus far, we have seen the
indictment in Oregon, 4 people indicted for the Litchfield Horse
Corral incident in California, 2 people indicted for the UW incident
and 2 people indicted for the Olympia incident. Following this trend
and the use of grand juries in all of these states as well as Colorado
and Wyoming, you can assume there could be potentially more
indictments soon.

Secret Surveillance at an All-Time High

Portland, 14.05.2006 17:40

Two annual reports recently released by federal agencies show that
surveillance activity conducted by the United States government has
continued to rise dramatically since the 9/11 terrorist attacks, with
use of investigative powers under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act again at an all-time high.
A coalition of consumer and civil liberties groups joined EPIC in filing comments with the Federal Communications Commission that urge the agency
to adopt stronger protections for phone records. Phone records (and
other types of personal information held by businesses) are vulnerable
to "pretexting," a practice where an individual impersonates another
person, employs false pretenses, or otherwise uses trickery to obtain
information. In 2005, EPIC identified 40 websites offering to obtain
phone records through pretexting, and filed a petition with the FCC to
require stronger rules for protecting phone records

May 30th Bail Hearing for Joyanna and Nathan!

Portland, 14.05.2006 17:40

Great news! Joy and Nathan have been granted a detention hearing,
during which a judge will decide whether or not they are to be
released on bail. The hearing is set to take place on May 30th at 1:30
P.M. We encourage anyone who is in the Eugene area to attend. Let's
pack the courtroom with supporters and let N. & J. know how many
people are caring about them.

Contact the support crew for a guide to writing character reference
letters. The lawyers have said that they can continue receiving them
up until May 23rd, after which the judge refuses to accept them. So,
if you have been putting it off for any reason, please take this
opportunity to complete them. Remember, it can't hurt for you to write
these. If your letter is not appropriate the lawyer will simply not
turn it in. It doesn't need to be perfect.
Be well.

'Not Guilty' Verdict For Bristol G8 Defendant

Bristol, 14.05.2006 16:39

Bristol 1 - 0 Babylon summary G8 Defendant writes: After nearly a year on bail the last remaining Bristol G8 defendant got a “not guilty” verdict and “admonishment” after defending them self in Stirling Sheriff court yesterday. The defendant said “it feels great to be off bail but lets not let this small victory give us any faith in the legal system, the real criminals are still at large". Whilst all the trials for the initial offences by Bristol activists at G8 have already been settled, this case was for the spurious secondary charge of “breach of bail conditions” imposed upon release from the initial offence and for a later “failure to appear in court” despite having advised the court in advance that the defendant could not attend.This was the case for two Bristol activists, who on the Friday evening after the Summit had ended, and the camp was closing down, entered the Stirling site, were searched and filmed by police but gave no names as were not a driving vehicles. Within half an hour, after collecting their belongings and vehicle, they left the site only to be stopped again. Under section 60 of the Terrorism Act the driver has to give his name, which he did and was promptly arrested for breach of bail conditions despite fulfilling the caveat of passing through to collect belongings for the puposes of moving to a home address. He was shortly followed by the navigator, now turned driver, who despite having already plead guilty and thus was not even on bail was similarly arrested for breach of bail conditions. She was released the next day, police realising their mistake. Meanwhile the first driver was kept in till Monday and now a year later in a court of law after multiple trips to Scotland Babylon have finally caved in to being wrong.

The Back to Back Cafe's last day of operation at their current location of 614 E. Burnside will be May 14th, marking the end of four years of caffeinating the resistance. To celebrate this sad, yet momentous occasion we will be holding an all day music extravaganza, featuring The Marsupials, Guau Guau, The Advisory, Alan Singley, Please Step Out of the Vehicle and Drunken Boat. Music starts at 5 pm and goes till the cops show up.

The Back to Back Cafe is a worker owned and operated coffee shop, serving shade-grown, organic, fair trade coffee as well as a variety of yummy vegetarian food. We promote an alternate way to run a business, focusing on supporting social & economic justice and
sustainable practices and dismantling hierarchical systems. The cafe has also served as a much needed all ages venue, as a meeting space for many groups and as a classroom for free ESL classes. We pride ourselves on being a resource to our community and more than
just another coffee shop. Our space is shared with the Portland branch of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) and the offices of the Portland Central America Solidarity Committee, as a result of which we've formed many enriching & rewarding relationships across
class and cultural lines.

We hope to re-open in NE Portland by late summer and continue to serve the people from our new home. Please join us for a celebration of our life so far and everything to come in the future.

All This For Selling Flowers ...

United Kingdom, 13.05.2006 18:40

On Friday 12th May, several activists and human rights campaigners, as well as people from different groups including London's Zapatista Action Project (z.a.p.), Bristol Solidarity group Kiptik and the Comite Cerezo support group in the U.K, staged a peaceful occupation and noise demonstration in and outside the Mexican Embassy in London [Photos and Report]. Four people locked on in front of the Embassy, effectively closing it down for business for most of the day. Meanwhile a Samba band was playing whilst other activists held banners referring to the events that have been taking place in San Salvador de Atenco, northern Mexico [Press Release]. Another protest outside the Mexican embassy had already taken place on Wednesday 10th [Pics and Report]. The Electronic Disturbance Theater and the Borderlands Hacklab also called for a virtual strike against the Mexican Government on May 5th.

Last week, residents of Atenco, a municipality near Mexico City, suffered massive police brutality and repression, after local organisations helped 60 flower vendors of the Texcoco local market to resist a blockade by state police that prevented them from setting up their stands. People from Atenco quickly responded by obstructing the highway that borders their town and leads to Texcoco market. The events that followed speak of unprecedented levels of police brutality. More than 3000 armed police forces stormed the town beating everyone in their path [Photos: 1 | 2 | 3 | Videos: 1 | 2] and arrested more than 200 people after a house to house search around the town. One 14 year old boy was killed as a result of police violence on the first day, and many were severely injured.

Translated Letter from President of Iran to Dubya

Portland, 13.05.2006 14:39

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Most Merciful

Mr. George Bush, For sometime now I have been thinking, how one can justify the undeniable contradictions that exist in the international arena. Many questions remain unanswered. Can one be a follower of Jesus Christ, the great Messenger of God (PBUH), Feel obliged to respect human rights, Present liberalism as a civilization model, Announce one's opposition to the proliferation of nuclear weapons and WMDs, Make "War on Terror" his slogan, And finally, Work towards the establishment of a "unified international community" a community which Christ and the virtuous of the Earth will one day govern, But at the same time, Have countries attacked.

On the pretext of the existence of WMDs, this great tragedy came to engulf both the peoples of the occupied and the occupying country. Later it was revealed that no WMDs existed to begin with. Of course Saddam was a murderous dictator. But the war was not waged to topple him..He was toppled along the way towards another goal; nevertheless the people of the region are happy about it. I point out that throughout the many years of the imposed war on Iran Saddam was supported by the West.

The lives, reputations and possessions of people destroyed and on the slight chance of the presence of a few criminals in a village, city, or convoy for example, the entire village, city or convoy set ablaze.Or because of the possibility of the existence of WMDs in one country, it is occupied, around one hundred thousand people killed, its water sources, agriculture and industry destroyed, close to 180,000 foreign troops put on the ground, sanctity of private homes of citizens broken, and the country pushed back perhaps fifty years.

Mr. President, You might know that I am a teacher. My students ask me how can these actions be reconciled with the values outlined at the beginning of this letter and duty to the tradition of Jesus Christ (PBUH), the Messenger of peace and forgiveness? There are prisoners in Guantanamo Bay that have not been tried, have no legal representation, their families cannot see them and are obviously kept in a strange land outside their own country. There is no international monitoring of their conditions and fate. No one knows whether they are prisoners, POWs, accused or criminals. European investigators have confirmed the existence of secret prisons in Europe too. Young people, university students, and ordinary people have many questions about the phenomenon of Israel.
