La Boillat resiste e rilancia!

Switzerland, 08.06.2006 22:07

Gli operai della Boillat non si arrendono e continuano caparbiamente la loro lotta per il diritto al lavoro. Dopo mesi di sciopero, minacce, licenziamenti, tentativi di delegittimazione e soprusi né il sostegno popolare né la volontà di resistenza degli operai sono venuti meno. Una petizione che chiede la presa a carico della Boillat da parte del cantone di Berna e alle autorità dei cantoni svizzeri di promuovere alle Camere Federali un'iniziativa parlamentare affinché venga introdotta la "facoltà da parte degli organi politici del paese di proteggere alcune imprese e di sottrarle alla disorganizzazione economica dovuta all'incompentenza o alla preoccupazione di lucro del loro proprietario", ha raccolto oltre 12.000 firme. (firma!)

Il 10 e 11 giugno una manifestazione nazionale (1) è convocata a Reconvillier. Tre sono gli obiettivi: creare un evento pubblico dove consegnare alle autorità bernesi le firme della petizione; organizzare un forum, che avrà luogo sabato 10 giungo alla Boillat, nel quale personalità di tutti i settori del paese abbiano l'oppurtunità di esprimersi sui temi ""La deindustrializzazione è una fatalità? Problemi regionali: quali risposte?" e una parte conviviale con festa, artisti di strada e concerti all'Uzine3 organizzati da KnockOut Festival, al quale anche i commercianti del villaggio hanno annunciato il loro sostegno.

Gli operai della Boillat vogliono una manifestazione che porti il massimo di persone possibili a Reconvillier e contano sul sostegno di tutti i settori della società civile svizzera per generare una reazione popolare all'emorragia di posti lavoro e che crei una base per una politica finalmente al servizio delle persone.

The Maquis: women and men, resistance fighters in the woods

Amongst the facts related to the war and revolution in Spain, it exists, up to now, a forgotten and distorted phenomenon of a large extent of official historiography; maquis' history. This anti-fascist resistance movement got developed when the fascists assumed war was finished and still today many people bear it in mind. Characters as Marcel·lí Massana, Ramon Vila, guerrilla fighter and anarchist also known as the home del bosc (wood's man), Quico sabaté and Josep Lluís i Facerias, el Face, had been some of the most known characters of this so important period of Catalan antifascism history.

Different collectives from several Catalan regions, year after year, organize a tribute to the Maquis with different activities, marches, concerts... There has been 9 for the time being.

In June begins the IX March-Homage to Maquis, 2006

US, Australia, New Zealand Reject Indigenous Declaration

Aotearoa, 08.06.2006 15:41

#media_7113;left# From the newswire: As the world's indigenous people get closer to achieving long overdue international recognition of their rights, some of the powers that conquered their territories in the past still say "no way". At a two-week meeting of the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues being held at U.N. headquarters in New York, indigenous leaders say they want their people to exercise full sovereignty over their ancestral lands and resources. The United States, Australia and New Zealand are the only countries that remain in opposition to the proposed Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous People, which recognises the principle of indigenous sovereignty.

#media_7122;left# From the Newswire: Bilateral free trade agreements are seen by the agricultural biotechnology industry as an important conduit for spreading genetically modified organisms (GMOs) around the world.

Boycott Firehaus!

Urbana-Champaign, 08.06.2006 14:48

Boycott Firehaus! Bar/Restaurant condones harassment of anti-war customer by drunken bar patron. ...A drunken bar patron cornered me and began hurling epithets at me for wearing a tshirt in opposition to the war, following me to my table. When I reported the bar patron's conduct to the manager, I was simply told that this customer was a regular and that there was nothing the bar was willing to do. The hostile and threatening actions by the bar patron would not have been considered appropriate behavior under any other circumstance; however, I believe that because the patron was directing his epithets at me for wearing an anti-war tshirt, the manager consented and refused to remove the drunken patron from the bar.

I refuse to watch families torn apart, while the President tells us to "stay the course." . . . I refuse to be party to an illegal and immoral war against people who did nothing to deserve our aggression. I wanted to be there for my fellow troops. But the best way was not to help drop artillery and cause more death and destruction. It is to help oppose this war and end it so that all soldiers can come home." - LT, US Army officer*

Roadless Red Alert!

Rogue Valley, 08.06.2006 14:47

Imminent Logging Threatens Oregon's Largest Roadless Area

Breaking news: The Bush administration is planning to auction the controversial Mike's Gulch roadless logging project this Friday, June 9th. Logging could begin within days after the auction.

The Mike's Gulch timber sale would saw into the largest roadless forest in Oregon: the 105,000-acre South Kalmiopsis Roadless Area. In addition to harming the South Kalmiopsis, Mike's Gulch would set a dangerous national precedent by logging roadless forests for the first time since the 2001 Roadless Rule was approved.



Crisis in Care: The Failure of the Market Economy

Tennessee, 08.06.2006 14:47

The market economy has proven itself to be an absolute and utter failure. Those who insist that the “market” is the best way to run a country seem to be missing one of the basic feelings that human hearts have: care. Care means “to look after or to provide for” but in a market economy “care” gets in the way of profits and thus care has to be eliminated for the market to “work.” The American healthcare system is the prime example of this but it is true for every industry the market economists and Wall Street financiers touch.



Iranian Crisis Requires Diplomacy, Not Force

Tennessee, 08.06.2006 14:47

No one can deny that there is an international crisis brewing over Iran's nuclear capability. The crisis, however, is one which requires diplomacy and international cooperation, and not, as the Bush administration and the Republican Party seem to be threatening, the use of unilateral force. The international landscape has changed dramatically since September 11th of 2001. At that time, the United States had the empathy and compassion of the world. People around the world grieved with us as they saw our own innocent civilians die in the face of tragedy and unspeakable acts of aggression.



Conscientious Non-voting 2006: Liberation from Within

Tennessee, 08.06.2006 14:47

In 2004, I did something that I had not done since I turned 18 years old; I didn’t vote. At the time, I gave my act a name, conscientious non-voting. Since then, I have studied a lot of pacifist writings and have tried to eliminate acts of aggression in my own behavior whenever practical. I view conscientious non-voting as one step among many I have taken in an attempt towards reducing aggression in my life (although I must confess I am no where near where I’d like to be). In 2004, I said voting for a person to serve in government (which by its very nature is forceful) is an act of aggression. I still believe that. Certainly it is not aggressive as pointing a gun at another human being, but it is an aggressive action nonetheless.

Scotland, 08.06.2006 14:47

Iceland is Western Europe’s last surviving intact wilderness.

You can feel the rage of fire echoing throughout the island. It is the world’s youngest large land mass, which means that it is very geologically active.
