Gay and Lesbian Activists Defy Moscow's Gay Pride Ban

United Kingdom, 08.06.2006 14:44

Despite a total ban and threats of mass arrests by Moscow's mayor, topped up with pledges of violent counter-protests by religious leaders, local right wing groups and fascist militants, over 200 people took the streets in defiance in central Moscow for the first ever Gay Pride march in Russia on Saturday 27.

As soon as the lesbian and gay activists gathered by the Kremlin in Manezhnaya Square, strengthened by a contingent of mainly anarchist supporters and some internationals, around 100 fascist and religious fanatics started to attack them, whilst, at the same time, around 1000 riot police pushed and kicked demonstrators out of the square. But despite enduring high levels of harrassment and violence, the activists proved their stubborness in defending their right to protest, and kept coming back trying to gather. As a result over 120 people were arrested, most of which have already been realeased but charged with disturbing the peace and illegal gathering.

Student uprising as Caravan visits Athens

United Kingdom, 08.06.2006 14:44

Since the beginning of this week, members of the AA Caravan have been working with students at the Politecnik University in Athens. The students have occupied their university in solidarity with their striking tutors as well as raising their concern over the proposed changes to the education law and privitisation of the Greek educational system. In the last few weeks almost all of the universities and colleges in Greece have been occupied by the majority of their students. After lectures and teachers went on a national strike in a long lasting dispute over pay, students around the country took over more than 300 buildings and university grounds.

Last week demonstrations took place all over Greece. In the city of Tessaloniky over 5000 students took to the street, in Athens over 7000, when other protests happenend in smaller cities and towns across the country. Many demonstrations were marred by police violence in an attempt to portray the students in a bad light. A few days ago many student groups agreed in public assemblies to continue their occupations and for a national demonstration to take place in Athens this Thursday (June 8th).

Student call to Give Us Our Marks

United Kingdom, 08.06.2006 14:44

On Monday 5th June, 100s of students demonstrated at the University of Nottingham to call for a swift resolution of the current dispute between management and staff.

Students carried banners and placards and a samba band led the way to the Trent Building, where the university administrators are based. We chanted "Pay our lecturers! Give us our marks!", and some managed to enter the Vice-Chancellor's office. Security intervened and propagated the unsubstantiated rumour that exams were taking place in the building so we had to be quiet!

We then took a brief tour of the university to gather more support and sat down on a road for 10 minutes, before heading back to the Trent Building for more action. Security tried to lock all doors but we found a way into the lower corridor, where we blocked in by security until we pushed our way out. At this point news was relayed to us from the people who'd had a meeting with university officials in the VC's office, that they'd agreed to hold a public meeting with students on Thursday.

We had a discussion outside the VC's office about ways of continuing our protests and furthering our aims. People will be gathering for a further protest on Tuesday at 3pm.

Brian Conley, Independent Journalist from Boston, hosts Online Videoblog from Iraq

Boston, 08.06.2006 14:43

This first episode details the situation of displaced Iraqis who are now living in a refugee camp outside Fallujah. The included video was provided to us by an Iraqi production team at a press conference concerning the camp. The footage was provided to the Rafidain channel, but as far as we know has not aired previously. The audio leaves something to be desired, but everything has been subtitled in English. The next episode will detail the lives of refugees in the Ruweishid Refugee camp on Jordan’s border with Iraq. We expect to upload one episode per week, on Monday or Tuesday, as well as various full-length interviews throughout the week.

Journalist Resists City Subpoena for Documenting and Reporting Police Brutality in Stateway Gardens Community

Chicago, 08.06.2006 14:42

On June 13, 2005, Jamie Kalven received a subpoena from the City of Chicago in connection with Bond v. Utreras, et al. Kalven was subpoenaed for his involvement in reporting and aiding Diane Bond—a resident of Stateway Gardens—who was repeatedly assaulted and harassed by police. Kalven wrote about Bond's experience in a 17-part series called "Kicking the Pigeon."

The subpoena demanded "copies of any and all documents, notes, reports, writings, computer files, audio tapes, video tapes, or any written or recorded item" in his possession regarding any of twenty-four named individuals (members of the Stateway Gardens community and police officers, as well as the plaintiff's attorney and an expert witness) "and/or any allegations of misconduct by any police officer" at Stateway Gardens.

Kalven refused to comply with the subpoena on multiple grounds; chief among them, the First Amendment.

On May 1, 2006, the City filed two motions. One motion petitions the judge to hold Kalven in contempt for "his deliberate and intentional refusal to produce the notes and recordings in question." The other motion seeks an order forcing Kalven to answer questions he declined to answer when deposed in the Bond case.

Kalven's attorneys filed his response on May 30th. Judge Arlander Keys has said he will rule by June 12.
