Bristol Celebrates National Refugee Week

Bristol, 11.06.2006 00:08

Saturday 19th - Sunday 25th June summary “Refugee Week is important because it reminds us that refugees are not just statistics to be used and abused, they are living, breathing people. I am British, I was born here and I have no intention of leaving here, so I want to create a society here where compassion is built into our culture, in this society we will be so aware of the world around us that we will not need a Refugee Week. Until then this is how we do it". Benjamin Zephaniah, Poet. There will be many events taking place in Bristol during the week, including the Celebrating Sanctuary art event running from Sat 17th - Sun 25th. Nick Thomas writes: A mix of personal experience and artistic inspiration runs through these responses to “Sanctuary”. It’s a big issue viewed through the deep, but delicate lens of the human heart. And it has attracted impressive contributors, working in a dazzling variety of forms and media. It is this eclecticism that has led us to describe it as an Art Event rather than a conventional exhibition.

Independent Journalists Visit, Report on Iraq

San Diego, 10.06.2006 19:42

Independent journalists and filmmakers Mark Manning and Dahr Jamail spoke at the Thomas Jefferson College of Law June 2 and showed a short film, "Caught in the Crossfire," documenting the utter destruction U.S. forces in Iraq leveled against the city of Falloujah in November 2004. Jamail talked about how the U.S. military actions in Iraq have consistently violated international law and how the corporate media helped build support for the war — itself, he argued, a war crime — while Manning said the U.S. people are ultimately responsible for stopping the war in Iraq and bringing their country back to the norms of legal behavior.

Chile, Germany, Greece - Students on the barricades

Aotearoa, 10.06.2006 07:40

Students are protesting in countries all around the globe to demand free education for everyone. IMC Athens reports that 320 academic departments (75% of all departments) are occupied by students in Greece. Certain clauses in the Greek Constitution (stating, among others, that education has to be public and free for all and that no police forces are allowed to enter university grounds) have made the enforcement of a neo-liberal agenda to the country's higher education institutions particularly difficult. However, the Conservative government is now attempting to push forward crucial changes in the functioning and role of the country's Higher Education institutions. A so-called "committee of experts", appointed by the government itself, has released a list of proposed changes.

In Germany students are in the second year of fighting the introduction of fees. They are combining the fight against fees with the struggle against neo-liberal 'reforms' of the Christian-Democrat/Social-Democrat government.

Chilean students want reforms in the education system a free public transport. Over one million people participated in huge demonstrations. Protesters and riot police clashed in the streets and hundreds of students were arrested.

Stop het kraakverbod

Netherlands, 09.06.2006 18:09

Op vrijdag 9 juni hebben de ministers Dekker (VROM) en Donner (Justitie) de tweede kamer een brief gestuurd, waarbij ze verklaarde kraken ten allen tijde strafbaar te willen stellen.

Rond de zomer willen ze metvoorstellen van wetswijziging komen waarbijze niet alleen het kraken strafbaar willen stellen maar ook de huurbescherming verder willen uithollen door het uitbreiden van de mogelijkheden voor tijdelijke verhuur en anti-kraak, aldus het Comitee tegen het Kraakverbod".

Kortom, er komt een voorstel waarbij de basisbehoefte aan onderdak, die ook een mensenrecht is, voor een steeds groter wordend aandeel van de bevolking flink uitgehold wordt om een handjevol speculanten en de vastgoedmaffia te beschermen.

Op woensdag 7 juni was er in Rotterdam reeds een eerste actie tegen het voorgenomen kraakverbod en op zaterdag 10 juni is er een benefiet in Amsterdam.

Local radio DJ advocates hitting bikes with vehicles

Saint Louis, 09.06.2006 17:38

During morning rush hour 6/2, a DJ for Bernie Miklasz Show on local "sports" station, AM 1380, said the proper place for bicycles is underneath cars. This comes barely 1year after local radio DJs suspended for prompting listeners to forceably disarm cops. Unclear whether the DJ advocating violence against bicyclists could receive similar treatment. For context, 12% of all roadway injuries in Missouri are on bike.
Update: Bernie issues apology for guest, and legal threat.



43 Events to Resist the Green Scare World Wide

Boston, 09.06.2006 17:08

Boston--December 7, 2005, marked the beginning of the largest roundup of environmental and animal rights activists in U.S. history. There have now been nearly 20 arrests and many Grand Jury subpoenas. The nation-wide sweep of arrests, dubbed “Operation Backfire,” has been described by the FBI as a major hit to environmentalists and animal rights activists who engage in destruction of property as a means to defend wild lands and lives of animals. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales stated in January that, “Investigating and preventing animal rights and environmental extremism is one of the FBI’s highest domestic priorities”. FRIDAY, JUNE 9th: benefit show and screening of 22/8. SUNDAY, JUNE 11th: symbolic demo at the federal building where different organizations will be speaking about the green scare.

Solidarity Statement from IRSN for Weekend of Resistance

Comrades: A year ago I travelled to Oregon to speak out in support of Jeffrey "Free" Luers. At that time, I reflected on my almost quarter century as an activist with the Irish Republican Socialist Movement and drawing upon that experience spoke of the importance of recognizing that Luers was a prisoner of war, because he, like comrades of the Irish National Liberation Army I'd known, was compelled to take illegal action in order to resist a system which called forth opposition and understood only the language of force.

Since that time, a host of other environmental activists have been incarcerated. One is now dead, allegedly having committed suicide following his arrest. Lives have be disrupted, some have been ruined. We believe all of those arrested in recent months to be innocent of the actions with which they are charged. The US government would have us believe that the more than a dozen environmental activists they've now indicted are "terrorists." "Terrorist," of course, being what the US government calls anyone it seeks to crush. "Terrorists" is what they call the heroic opposition to the US and British invasion and occupation of Iraq, with the resulting destruction of that country and the slaughter of tens of thousands of innocent civilians. "Terrorist" is what they call the Venezuelan government, which survived a CIA-backed coup attempt and is now using the nation's petroleum wealth to not only provide literacy programs, medical clinics, and a host of other projects aimed at improving the lives of the destitute masses of that country, but are using their wealth to assist other struggling nations in the developing world, and have even used it to supply cheap heating oil to the working poor in the north-east part of the US. "Terrorist" is what they call the children of the Palestinian intifada, who combat heavily armed soldiers and tanks with nothing more than stones, rather than be forced out of their homeland by an invasion which provided a European surrogate in the heart of the Middle East.

The environmental activists indicted, even the activists who actually carried out the actions for which these people have been charged, are not terrorists. The term is absurd when spoken from the lips of a government so despotic, so stained in innocent blood, so contemptuous of human rights and human liberty, so callous to the plight of animals, forests, the seas, the land, the skies, as the one we have at present. It is the US government and their allies in Iraq, the British government; it is the US government and their allies in Haiti, the French state, who are the terrorists in the world today.

The US government, on behalf of the capitalist class, has unleashed upon this earth an assault from which, if left unchecked, it cannot recover. Such policies must be opposed. Such policies must be opposed in whatever way is necessary to defeat them. End the "green scare" and free these activists. The comrades of the International Republican Socialist Network, here in the US and abroad, extend our solidarity to you in this struggle. Your victory, is our own!

Court Allows Activists to Protest Six Flags Marine World

San Francisco Bay Area, 09.06.2006 14:12

On Saturday, May 23, In Defense of Animals (IDA) and Citizens for Cruelty-Free Entertainment protested in front of the ticketbooths at Six Flags Marine World in Vallejo after winning a Federal Court ruling that stopped Six Flags from banning protestors on Six Flags' grounds. The protesters educated the public about Marine World's history of premature animal deaths, including the inherent cruelty of using animals at the amusement park, and urged Six Flags to stop exhibiting animals and focus solely on rides and other forms of entertainment.

On &quot;Illegal&quot; Immigration

Baltimore, 09.06.2006 14:09

After first destroying all economic frontiers between nations, capitalism now resurects old cultural frontiers and religious and racial divides in order better to control working people everywhere. And so our world seems to be retrogressing to pre-Cold War national chauvinisms, pre-World War II racism, and pre-Enlightenment religious persecution. What is a progressive Labor response to these challenges of globalization?
