Somerville 5 Jury Returns Mixed Verdict

Boston, 23.06.2006 19:09

Boston--After deliberating all day, jurors found Somerville Five defendants Calvin Belfon, Jr and Isaiah Anderson 'not guilty' of all felony charges but 'guilty' of several misdemeanors. Their lawyers immediately filed appeals on their behalf. A quiet tension greeted the jurors as they filed into the courtroom at 4:15 in the afternoon. Several of the jurors smiled. But the smiles were deceptive, and soon there were tears in the eyes of friends, family members, and supporters as the indictments and verdicts were read out and repeated back one by one, according to a precise ritual ordained by the Commonwealth.

Washington escalates slaughter in Iraq

Portland, 23.06.2006 03:38

The killing of two American soldiers captured by insurgents at a roadblock south of Baghdad will be seized upon by Washington as justification for an intensified bloodbath against the Iraqi people.
Well before the discovery of the bodies of the young soldiers, reportedly bearing the marks of torture and mutilation, there were already mounting indications that the Bush White House and the Pentagon were implementing a shift in military tactics that spells a dramatic escalation of US violence in the occupied country.
The mass media, which has shown little inclination to highlight the daily death toll of American troops, now totaling over 2,500—much less the far greater toll of Iraqi dead, estimated in the hundreds of thousands—has exhibited keen interest in the fate of the two executed enlisted men, including gruesome details of their deaths. Their aim is to whip up an atmosphere of hatred and revenge against the Iraqi population.

Chris McIntosh Still in the Hole

Portland, 23.06.2006 03:38

Chris McIntosh, currently serving 8 years for setting a fire at an empty McDonalds restaurant in Seattle has been in the hole since May 29th. On June 8th Chris was sentenced to another 45 days in the hole in addition to the 36 days he has already served. He says there is a chance he may get out early. He is in the hole for getting into a fight with a child molester. The hole is a very lonely place - an isolated cell where a prisoner is kept away from the general population. Letters are urgently needed to boost Chris' spirits.

Mayor promotes Sizer to full Chief of Portland Police Dept

Portland, 23.06.2006 03:38

Mayor Potter calls Press conference to Present Desision to Promote from within. June 22nd, 2006 Mayor Potter of Portland, Oregon announced in Council Chambers his desision to Promte and confer title of Full "Chief of Police", upon interium Chief of Police,Rosie Sizer.

Last week , Mayor Potter announced that he might conduct a nation wide search, however as he stated today, to the press, He had confered with Council members and other High ups and this was the only clear desision to make and the Right Choice.

Chief Sizer stepped up and spoke...She told her own Quilty Profiling incident(she is establishing her humanness)(or purging sin publicly) about a Guy that she once stopped, because as she plain old outright stated, He was "Ugly", and he was near where something had happened, and she took him in and ran him and he had never never never committed any offense in his whole life ,no record,no nothing....she said she apologized to him, and he even told her, he got stopped all the time for just being UGLY !!! (Quilty while being Ugly ) Lord help us...!!!!

Comment:You know, I have a lot of conflicted feelings about this. First, I too question why Foxworth got demoted while McCollister and Sery did not. I wonder why cops who kill people get medals, while a cop who engaged in the same kind of human behavior all the rest of us engage in (come on, you know you do) gets demoted. Weird.

Stop the Witch Hunt Against Ward Churchill

Portland, 23.06.2006 02:08

The Standing Committee on Research Misconduct at the University of Colorado at Boulder voted 6 to 3 this week to recommend that Ethnic Studies Professor Ward Churchill be fired. In doing so it went beyond the conclusions of four out of the five members of its own investigative committee appointed to look into the charges, who called for
Churchill to be suspended for 2 to 5 years.

The university administration may now move rapidly to put the final touches on a vicious witch hunt that started over 16 months ago—aimed at driving Professor Churchill from the university, destroying
his reputation and career, and delivering a chilling message to radical and progressive faculty on college campuses across the country to "watch what you say, watch what you write." It remains for the provost and the dean of arts and sciences to send a final recommendation to Interim Chancellor DiStefano. This is the same interim chancellor that has guided the attack against Churchill
within the Boulder community from the beginning.



New Caledonia: Workers vs. Globalisation - Ouvriers contre la Mondialisation

Aotearoa, 23.06.2006 01:40

“We all have the same goal and that's to fight globalisation wherever it hits us. It's only by joining our struggle together that we will stop globalisation”, wrote the spokesperson for the Union of Kanak and Exploited Workers (USTKE) Pierre Chauvat, a day before his union went to blockade the port in Nouméa, New Caledonia, where one of the largest multinational shipping corporations was planning to unload its cargo, guarded by armed forces."Nous tous avons le même but et c'est de combattre la mondialisation partout où la nous frappe. Il est seulement en joignant notre lutte que nous arrêterons la mondialisation ", avons écrit le porte-parole pour l‘Union Syndicale des Travailleurs Kanaks et des Exploités (USTKE) Pierre Chauvat, un jour avant que son union soit allée bloquer le port de Nouméa, Nouvelle-Calédonie, où une des plus grandes sociétés multinationales d'expédition projetait décharger sa cargaison, gardée par le militaire.

4:30 PM to 6:00 PM
Vons Parking Lot - 92084
South Santa Fe Ave and Escondido Ave
Vista, CA 92084


The immigrant community in Vista has been struggling against repeated racist attacks by the powerful, starting with the murder of three latino men over a five day period last summer by sheriffs, the harrassment of day laborers by racist vigilantes, the recent border patrol sweeps through neighborhoods in Vista and other parts of San Diego County, and now the imminent passage of a secret, immigrant-bashing ordinance by the Vista City Council mandating registration and visible identification of employers of day laborers.

The North County Coalition for Peace, Justice and Dignity is organizing a project to document the activities of Border Patrol Agents and racist vigilantes in their communities. Join them in resisting the ordinance against day laborers by forming a human chain from the most contentious day laborer site to City Hall:

Eviction Resistance at The Square

United Kingdom, 22.06.2006 01:08

The Square occupied social centre, based at 21 Russell Square, will face eviction on Friday, June 23rd. A call out has been made to resist the eviction and to hold a Festival of Resistance, involving autonomous groups, social centres activists, live bands, DJ’s and participants from The Square.

The Square opened its doors on February 4th, 2006, with the aim of developing the potential of an autonomous space, encouraging a connection with its locality (mainly students and lecturers), as well as being a visible part of the movement developing alternatives to capitalism and supporting local and global struggles.

Over the past 5 months of occupation, The Square has hosted several key events and initiatives and has tried to move beyond existing just as an activist infrastructure to become a political entity. This has been done by initiating and supporting such political actions as the Stop the War march, the NoBorders demo on April 8th, and the Mayday Autonomous Bloc as part of the Euro May Day parades. The Square is also home to the No Borders detainee support office.

The Square are calling for solidarity and for people to assemble outside 21-22 Russell Square at 9am (or earlier) on Friday, 23rd June, to help resist the eviction.

Die Katalanen haben sich zwar am Sonntag für mehr Eigenständigkeit der Region von Spanien ausgesprochen, aber wegen der Kritik an dem Text das Referendum meist ignoriert. Nicht einmal die 50prozent Hürde wurde genommen. Nur 49,4 Prozent der mehr als 5 Millionen Wahlberechtigten nahm an der Abstimmung teil. Das waren fast 11 Prozent weniger als 1979, obwohl sie damals sogar an einem Wochentag durchgeführt wurde.



Boise Neighborhood Loses Playground to Development

Portland, 21.06.2006 19:10

The landscape is preparing to change again on North Mississippi Avenue. The Kurisu Family International, who own the Mississippi Rising Ballroom at Mississippi and Shaver are planning something big. But we arent going to talk too much about something big right now, we are going to talk about something relatively small.

NAYA, The Native American Youth Association, leased the main office in the Mississippi Rising Building for as long as I've lived here and longer. But the other week, they moved out. I have been told that they moved out due to the changing demographics of the area and them not being a welcomed addition by the new neighborhood dwellers. In the lot to the north of the Ballroom, NAYA had purchased and insured a small playground for neighborhood kids which had alot of use. This morning, when I came downstairs, it was in the process of being taken apart.
