Hundreds march to counter Enough is Enough rally

Aotearoa, 24.08.2004 04:26

In Wellington on Monday over a thousand people turned out to oppose the Destiny Church Enough is Enough rally and to show their support for the Civil Union bill. The Civil Union bill will provide legal status and protection to de-facto and same-sex relationships.

The counter march included participation by civil rights campaigners, heterosexuals, Pride Alliance, high school students and some Christian groups. [ Reports: 1 | 2 Images 1 | 2 | 3 ] Protestors carried rainbow flags, balloons, and signs reading "Hate is not a family value" and "brians not the messiah, he's a very naughty boy".

As well as opposing civil unions, Destiny NZ is also campaigning for the criminalisation of homosexuality, prostitution and abortion. Several thousand people took part in the Enough is Enough march, which was also supported by the white supremacist National Front (the self professed "leading organisation in New Zealand concerned with the preservation and advancement of the unique New Zealand European culture"). Other anti-civil union bill protestors called homosexuality an "abomination", "They have no right. But it will be on their heads when Christ returns."

Meanwhile over the weekend a Hamilton rally in support of civil unions attracted around 50 people. Speakers and placards asked people to "respect committment, not gender" but there was no sign of any opponents of the bill. The rally was rounded off with two same-sex couples cutting into mock wedding cakes which was then shared by the crowd.

Who Funds Democrats? Well, Halliburton for Starters: &amp; Empty Democratic Slander Campaign Against Nader Hits Wisconsin

Madison, 24.08.2004 01:03

Bill Linville is the Wisconsin Field Coordinator for Nader/Camejo 2004 and a member of the International Socialist Organization in Madison, Wisconsin. He can be reached at As the field coordinator of the Nader/Camejo campaign in Wisconsin, my inbox has seen e-mails from excited volunteers, people wanting to sign a petition, desperate pleas telling me that [Nader/Camejo] campaign volunteers in Wisconsin represent the "left arm of the Bush campaign" and stubborn [false] claims that Republicans are collecting signatures for Nader in Wisconsin, despite what I, the state coordinator of the campaign had to say in response. It's not hard to see why these claims persist....

Arbitrator rules UMass-Amherst international student 'fee' discriminatory

Boston, 23.08.2004 23:47

In a historic and possibly precedent-setting decision rendered August 15 an arbitrator ruled that the University of Massachusetts at Amherst must cease and desist charging international graduate student employees an international student ‘fee’ and that all students who paid the ‘fee’ shall be refunded. This victory is a result of a seven-month campaign led by the Graduate Employee Organization. GEO filed its grievance with the administration Dec. 29, 2003 claiming the ‘fee’ was a violation of the union’s non-discrimination contract clause which bars discrimination based on national origin or citizenship among other protected statuses. The aritrator affirmed GEO’s charge stating discrimination was inherent in the way the administration levied the ‘fee’ because it was only mandatory upon international students.

Protest organizers are still in the process of fighting the city for the permits to gather in Central Park instead of the West Side Highway march offered as the only option by police.

Chicago to New york bus space is still available for those still unsure about going. More information on housing, ride shares and logistics can be found at the RNC Not Welcome website.

Activists are asked to come prepared for unpredictable weather and spontaneous events. The National Lawyers Guild and New York ACLU intend to monitor police activities against protesters. There are also resources for safety in mass actions. The People's Guide to the RNC offers a guide to public bathrooms, WIFI networks and points of interest for people's down time.

Local Chicago activist intend to send a message of resistance and hope through a diversity of tactics and those unable to make it to NYC are invited to attend the solidarity rally on Sunday, August 29 at 2 PM at Federal Plaza. Those remaining here will also be awaiting news about events in NYC that won't be aired on the mainstream press.

NYC, 23.08.2004 16:24

WNYC has just reported that a federal judge has decided not to force the city to allow protests by International ANSWER and National Council of Arab Americans (NCA) the on the Great Lawn in Central Park. However, judge says that the city and ANSWER can still come to an agreement on another place in the park to protest, and that ANSWER and the city “did not work hard enough” to reach an agreement.

The ANSWER lawsuit if not directly related to the other lawsuit filed by UFP&J, which will be heard tomorrow. It is uncertain as to whether the Judge’s ruling in today’s case will have any impact on the UFPJ lawsuit.

Also of note, Leslie Cagan of UFP&J was quoted in USA Toda saying “"We're not going to have a rally if we don't have a permit for Central Park."
