16 Citizens Attempt Citizens’ Arrest of Halliburton CEO at the Shareholder’s Meeting

United States, 20.05.2006 22:38

DUNCAN, OK -- On May 17th, 2006, sixteen people from all over the Heartland attempted a citizens’ arrest of David Lesar at the Halliburton Shareholders’ meeting in Duncan, Oklahoma. They were led by Hiram Myers, an attorney with a nephew deployed in Iraq who felt compelled by his conscience to prepare a legal document outlining Halliburton’s violations. Myers stated, “If we the citizens don’t hold Halliburton accountable, who will? Certainly not our government or the shareholders”.



Halliburton is currently under investigations by the Security Exchange Commission, Department of Justice and the Pentagon for bribery, fraud and overcharging no-bid military contracts. Additionally, Halliburton also has business dealings in Iran, which are contrary to the U.S. sanctions currently being imposed. It is widely believed that Halliburton moved their shareholders’ meeting to Duncan, Oklahoma from Houston, Texas because their meetings in past years have been the target of intense scrutiny, protests, and civil disobedience. Their move appears to have strengthened the resolve of corporate accountability advocates, veterans, and concerned citizens.

Contra el día de las Fuerzas Armadas en Sevilla.

estrecho / madiaq, 20.05.2006 22:08

Más de 3000 soldados infectarán nuestras calles con mensajes propios del militarismo, cuyo desfile de día 28 de mayo, día de las Fuerza Armadas, será presidido por los Reyes.

El Ejército español nos infectará con los siguientes agentes patógenos: obediencia ciega, xenofobia, homofobia, patriarcado, machismo, violencia, autoritarismo, sumisión... Según fuentes fidedignas del Diario ABC, la infección será más virulenta que la del año pasado en A Coruña.

Que no se oigan solamente sus voces de mando, que también se escuchen nuestras palabras de insumisión.

"La única maniobra militar honorable es la retirada".

Trojan Nuclear Power Plant to Blow on Sunday

Portland, 20.05.2006 15:39

This weekend, early Sunday morning, one of the creepiest little scenes on the Columbia will be shaken into the dust from whence it came.

I must confess that I will miss the weird irony of the Trojan nuclear power plant. For those who have never been there, the great, gray cooling tower looms above the wetlands just outside of tiny Rainier, Oregon. It's visible for miles from Highway 30, and from the river into which it's waste waters are no doubt still seeping. But the most bizarre spectacle it offers is close up. Because at the foot of the monstrous tower there is a bucolic little park, complete with duck ponds and picnic tables and rolling green lawns framed under drooping elm and maple and locust trees.

The banks of the meandering pond are peppered with scenes from Norman Rockwell paintings. Lone fishermen sit on folding chairs, lazily dangling dubious lines into the murky and questionable water. Children reach hopeful hands full of offerings to gawking geese and the odd nutria swimming along the shore. (Is it only my imagination that the wildlife here seems afflicted with strange maladies? Maybe.) Happy little families gather around picnic baskets on checkered cloths in the strange shade of the dark, silent tower. All of that will be gone on Sunday, though the waste the plant generated will likely still remain. Perhaps for millenia.

Personal Vigil at the OHSU Primate Center

Portland, 20.05.2006 15:39

Inspired by Rick Bogle and his Primate Freedom Tour years ago where he kept a week-long vigil outside all of the eight National Primate Research Centers, an IDA member has started his own weekly solo demonstration outside the OHSU primate lab, and he would welcome your company!

Beginning last Sunday and extending for the next 6 weeks through Sunday June 25, Clark, an IDA volunteer, will be outside the Oregon National Primate Research Center between noon and 2 pm with his homemade sign alerting passersby about the cruel and unnecessary research that is being conducted by OHSU.

Clark will have a few extra signs available these upcoming weeks so anyone who wants to join him need only bring their positive energy. These monkeys live day in and out in stark labs, alone in tiny cages, suffering in often painful experiments, and most people don't even know these primate labs exist in their neighborhood. More than 3,500 monkeys are being held in these OHSU labs. We are very proud of Clark for taking the initiative to be their voice and encourage you to please join him for one of his Sunday vigils.

We held signs (some specific to Mother's Day on Sunday, such as a picture of several raccoons with the saying, "These babies miss their mother. Is she on your back?"), passed out literature, chanted, and ate vegan sandwiches and chocolate chip cookies until the close of Schumacher's business day. There were a number of new people who joined us, including a child who asked her mother if she could protest with us, and couple from Denver who had heard about our protest on Indymedia. Like a number of other activists across the country, they have their own on-going protest in their city - all across the country people are saying no to fur.

Our lively, celebratory protests continue to stand in stark contrast to the death and destruction within Schumacher. Throughout the day we danced, a bagpipe player entertained us, we performed street theater. All the activity seemed to interest dour Schumacher employee/attempted murderer Nick, who came out several times to pointedly take our pictures (as if to intimidate).

Fußball-Kapitalismus (reloaded)

Germany, 20.05.2006 02:40

Ein symptomatisches Signal für die kommende Fußballweltmeisterschaft setzte das WM-Maskottchen "Goleo". Gleich um 20 Prozent oder 40 Millionen wollte der Spielwarenhersteller Nici mit dem blöden Plüschlöwen seinen Umsatz steigern. Nun musste die Unternehmensführung Konkurs anmelden. Gleichzeitig läuft gegen das Unternehmen ein Verfahren wegen Betrugs bzw. Bilanzfälschung.Die kommende Fußballweltmeisterschaft sagt uns Einiges über den aktuellen Zustand des Kapitalismus.

On May 18, 2006, activists attempted to deliver a “Don't Attack Iran” Petition, which was signed by over 43,000 individuals, to a White House official. The bureaucrat refused to accept it, despite the fact that the Right to Petition the government for a redress of grievances is a right older than the Constitution and a cornerstone of the First Amendment. A defiant Cindy Sheehan then labeled George W. Bush’s White House: “A Crime Scene!”



Don't Mention The War

Bristol, 19.05.2006 14:39

The Folly of Empire - then and now anarchist606 writes: The Bliar regime has tried to dampen worries after the shooting down of the British chopper and subsequent riots in Basra.. but its all going pear shaped to say the least... There is a memorial to British soldiers killed in Iraq. One of the dead is a south west lad; 2nd Lieutenant Henry Parkyns Bridge Baines. About a month after he was killed the British Army issued a 'Proclamation' part of which read, "our armies do not come into your cities and lands as conquerors or enemies, but as liberators..." This was an illusion ... Just in case you were wondering, these events did not take place in 2004, 5 or 6. This was 1917 and by 1920 Iraqi resistance to the occupation had forced the British out.We don't mention that war much these days. It is an uncomfortable reminder of the folly of empire. But it seems that much of the media and our political leaders also does not want to mention the current war much. It is an uncomfortable reminder of the folly of empire ... The Bliar regime has tried to dampen worries after the shooting down of the British chopper and subsequent riots in Basra, "British officials played down suggestions that the clashes indicated any significant escalation of the security situation in Basra.." Well that's not what others are saying. "One person is being assassinated in Basra every hour as order in Iraq's second city disintegrates, according to an Iraqi Defence Ministry official." says nzherald.co.nz ... Where are the British army in all this? Possibility in their barracks considering the folly of empire.
