Activists Gear Up for Caravan to Cuba

San Francisco Bay Area, 28.06.2006 00:09

Over the weekend of June 24th and 25th, about a dozen Santa Cruz activists busied themselves at the Live Oak Grange sorting medical suppilies, soaps, books, pens, and automotive parts among other items, as part of the Pastors for Peace 2006 Cuba Friend-Shipment Caravan. This is the 17th year our fellow community members have challenged the travel ban to Cuba as well as the inhumane embargo on Cuba by our government. Volunteers did a quality inspection of donated supplies before loading them onto the dontated ambulance, Police SWAT wagon, and Peace Mobile. Other people put their handprints onto the vehicles to demonstrate peace, friendship and solidarity from across the sea. Read more and view photos

&quot;Boycott Israeli Goods&quot; National Day of Action

United Kingdom, 27.06.2006 23:08

As the British government continues to boycott Palestinians by refusing to recognise their democratically elected government, by joining the EU in a blockade of aid and by entertaining Israeli leader Ehud Olmert in London whilst bombs rain down on Gaza, activists around the country have answered a call from the Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC) and the Boycott Israeli Goods Campaign (BIG) to join a day of boycott action against Israeli apartheid.

During the day of action on Saturday, 24th June, pickets and demonstrations took place at stores selling Israeli products across the UK: in Liverpool, Brighton, Camden, Hackney, Islington, Southport, Cardiff, Darlington, Brixton, Oxford, Nottingham, Birmingham, Exeter, Halifax, Brent, Durham, Sheffield and Manchester. Concerned individuals took part in creative actions to persuade the public not to buy Israeli goods and demand that retailers do not stock them.

In Brighton campaigners picketed Waitrose calling on the corporation to adhere to its ethical buying policy by not buying goods from apartheid Israel. Another picket was held outside a highstreet store selling CATerpillar goods, who have a contract with the Israeli military for the supply of military bulldozers used in illegal demolitions of Palestinian homes. In the West Midlands activists drove a replica CATerpillar bulldozer through the high street as a creative way of highlighting the way in which CATerpillar fuels the occupation. Across London activist picketed supermarkets selling Israeli goods and delivered letters to store managers informing them of the boycott.

The actions today were part of a concerted campaign calling for boycott, divestment and sanctions against apartheid Israel. Prevous actions and campaigns include:
Agrexco: Corporate Complicity in the Ethnic Cleansing of the Jordan Valley | Letting Apartheid Bloom | The Uxbridge Seven: Day One | Day Two | Seven Blockaders Acquitted
Caterpillar: Caterpillar Manchester Protest 2005 | Anniversary of Rachel Corries' Death | Caterkiller Shrewsbury Shut Down | Anti Caterpillar Motorcade | Rhythms of Resistance Anti Cat Shoes Protest | Caterpillar Trade Fair Action | Caterkiller Awarded Housewrecker of the Year | ESF Florence Action
Supermarket protests: Boycott Van | Marks and Spencers Stencilled | Repression of M&S Protesters
Academic boycott AUT Boycott | NAFTHE Boycott | CUPE Ontario | COSATU (South Africa).
Sporting boycott campaigns include Stop Arsenal supporting Israeli Apartheid | Scotland Pitch Invasions | Free Jerusalem-Stop Connex and Alstrom.

AWOL in Canada – Soldiers Speak Out.

San Diego, 27.06.2006 18:39

According to the Pentagon, nearly 6,000 U.S. soldiers are currently listed as deserters, having been AWOL for at least 30 days. It is unknown how many of these soldiers have taken refuge in Canada, but as the war continues this number is sure to increase. Indymedia contributor, FluxRostrum, has recently filmed interviews with three of these soldiers. In the videos, the soldiers tell their story uncensored and provide a view into the reality of the war not presented by corporate media.

Pending Double-Execution Reveals Inherent Flaws in Tennessee's Death Penalty System

Tennessee, 27.06.2006 14:09

Tennessee to Kill Two Men in One Night Nashville: In the past forty-six years, the state of Tennessee has executed only one man. Now, in one day, it plans to execute two. Both Sedley Alley and Paul Dennis Reid are scheduled to die in the early morning of June 28th and both cases reveal critical flaws in Tennessee’s broken death penalty system. “This double execution unquestionably reveals more flaws with Tennessee’s administration of the death penalty,” said Randy Tatel, Executive Director of the Tennessee Coalition to Abolish State Killing (TCASK). “In the Alley case, we have a 20-year old unreliable conviction where the state is so afraid of the truth that it refuses to release physical evidence for DNA testing. In the case of Paul Reid, we are preparing to execute a severely mentally ill, delusional individual. It shows, yet again, that Tennessee’s death penalty system is broken.”



The Wall Street Journal Calls Hugo Chavez A Threat to World Peace

Portland, 27.06.2006 12:39

You won't find commentary and language any more hostile to Hugo Chavez than on the editorial page of the Wall Street Journal. Their June 23 piece by Mary Anastasia O'Grady in the Americas column is a clear, jaw-dropping example. It's practically blood-curdling in its vitriol which calls Hugo Chavez a threat to world peace. The sad part of it is Journal readers believe this stuff and are likely to support any US government efforts to remove the "threat."

The O'Grady article is about the elections scheduled to take place in the fall for five non-permanent UN Security Council seats to be held in 2007. One of them will be for the Latin American seat now held by Argentina. The two countries vying to fill the opening are Guatemala and Venezuela, and the other countries in the region will vote on which one will get it. You won't have to think long to guess the one the US supports - its Guatemalan ally, of course. And why not. For over 50 years its succession of military and civilian governments have all followed the dictates of their dominant northern neighbor. In so doing, they all managed to achieve one of the world's worst human rights records that hasn't abated even after the 1996 Peace Accords were signed ending a brutal 36 year conflict. Although the country today is nominally a democratic republic, it continues to abuse its people according to documented reports by Amnesty International. [ read more ]

"Americans for Chavez" launched

We would like to announce the launching of the "Americans for Chavez" project by Bolivarian Circle 'Chief Tierra Blanca' in Denver, Colorado and its website found online at:
http://www.americans-for-chavez.com/

Beyond organizing local solidarity activity - several projects are in the works presently - and coordinating with the larger progressive anti-imperialist camp (with an emphasis on anti-war and pro-Palestine activism), we have launched the "Americans for Chavez" website & online project to promote solidarity in cyber-space. For the record, we are in no way in competition with, or opposed to, the larger solidarity networks like the Cyber Circle. In fact our website includes multiple links to these networks and we strongly suggest that interested parties visit them as well. [ read more ]



URGENT! Student Loan Consolidation – Do it Now!!

Portland, 27.06.2006 10:39

Anyone holding student loans - even if you're still in school - should hurry to consolidate them NOW. Recent legislation passed by all those "family values, compassionate conservative" types in Congress (you know, the same ones who just gave themselves another pay raise, while killing a higher minimum wage) will significantly increase the interest rate on federal student loans on July 1st, 2006. The added cost to you could be significant.

If you've taken out your loans since July 1, 1998, your Stafford loans will all be at 4.7% variable interest right now. Because Congress decided to (partially) finance tax cuts for the very rich on the backs of students, children, and the poor, your student loan interest rate will increase this Saturday to 6.8% fixed. Not only is that a 44% increase in interest rate, but because it is fixed rather than variable, you will no longer benefit if interest rates drop in the future!



PUBLIC OLD GROWTH TO BE STRIPPED FROM BEST KLAMATH TRIBUTARY: Time to Gear Up!

Portland, 27.06.2006 10:09

On June 23, 2006 the Knob Timber Sale lost on all counts in the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. Knob is one of three old growth timber sales making up a "mega-sale" on the undammed wild and scenic Salmon River of Siskiyou County, CA. After years in court, the Knob sale will soon be auctioned and slated for cut there after. Some of the last intact oldgrowth forest in the United States can be found in these public-land timber sales. The old growth on the banks of the Salmon River will not fall without a fight as our salmon go extint.

In 2003 activists came together to stop the cumulative effects of the Glassups, Knob, and Meteor Timber Sales. That year, forest defenders rose up in three tree-sits in the Glassups sale. Although Glassups fell, the Knob auction was held off till now, a huge victory! But the struggle continues - Forest defenders of the Salmon River are committed to fighting the Knob sale through direct action! We are a diverse and colorful group of local concerned community members as well as activists from all over the country. The movement fighting to stop harmful and un-lawful logging is a multi-limbed creature. When the "arm" of litigation tires... the now rested and muscular arm of direct action re-emerges.

G8 2006 in St. Petersburg - Kein ruhiges Gipfeltreffen!

Switzerland, 26.06.2006 20:07

Dieses Jahr wird der G8 vom 15. bis 17. Juli in Strelna, einem Vorort von St. Petersburg, Russland stattfinden. Aufgrund der schwierigen Situation vor Ort, wird eine Verhinderung des Gipfels schwierig werden. Trotzdem und gerade deswegen ist grosser und breiter Widerstand wichtig - wenn Putin zeigen kann, dass mit ein wenig mehr Repression keine Proteste stattfinden, werden sich andere Regierungen davon sicher "inspirieren" lassen.

Trotz der schwierigen Situation vor Ort, ist in den letzten paar Monaten in Russland einiges an Widerstand gegen den G8-Gipfel und dem kapitalistischen System entstanden, Menschen haben sich organisiert und mit anderen vernetzt. Aufgrund der enormen staatlichen Repression sollte eine Anreise früh und gut geplant sein.

Es ist jedoch einiges an Widerstand und Aktionen geplant und den G8 entgegen zu treten ist auch dieses Jahr in St. Petersburg wichtig! So hat eine Velokarawane (aktuelle Reports) am 2. Juni Berlin verlassen und ist auf dem Weg nach St. Petersburg. Ab 8. Juli beginnen Aktionen und Gegengipfel, eine (unvollständige) Liste von Gegenaktionen in der Übersicht.

Clarksville Community Comes Together in Memory of Civil Rights Activist

Tennessee, 26.06.2006 13:09

The Hispanic Organization for Progress and Education (HOPE), and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), along with the Clarksville Korean American Association have joined the Clarksville Montgomery County Community in support of slain civil rights activist, Juan Vasquez, Sr., and his son, Thomas Vasquez. Juan was the founder of H.O.P.E. and served as the Hispanic liaison for the Clarksville NAACP. Mr. Vasquez was an advocate for education for our Hispanic youth. He organized a protest march in support of our schools that helped convince County Commissioners to give more funding toward the school systems budget. Juan also was a driving force and advocate for the newly established Hispanic Cultural Center on the campus of Austin Peay State University. As vice chair for the Clarksville Human Relations Commission, Juan planned to introduce state legislation in support of rights and equality for all Hispanics regardless of legal status.

Prometheus Radio Project Calls for Quick Action on Senate Bill 2866

United States, 26.06.2006 07:37

Prometheus Radio Project is calling for supporters of independent community-based media to take quick action on Senate Bill 2686, a big telecommunications bill that covers everything from who controls your local cable company to how fast and open your access to the internet is. Some of the bill, the proposed Communications, Consumer's Choice, and Broadband Deployment Act of 2006, is problematic, but some of the amendments are positive - including one introduced by Republican Senator John McCain of Arizona that would expand low power FM (LPFM) radio -- one hundred watt community radio stations used by churches, schools, and community groups around the United States. The bill could be voted on next week.

For more information and to get your Senator's phone number, visit: http://www.freepress.net/washington or http://www.prometheusradio.org/lpfm

Neuer Torpedo auf baskischen Friedensprozess

Germany, 26.06.2006 06:38

Die baskische Untergrundorganisation ETA hat in einem Schreiben an die spanische Bevölkerung gestern (heute) erklärt, die dauernde Repression sei mit einem Friedensprozess unvereinbar. Am Dienstag wurden im spanischen und französischen Baskenland erneut 12 Personen verhaftet. Die sollen einem Netzwerk der ETA angehören, über das die bewaffnete Organisation angeblich die "Revolutionssteuer" eintreibe. Das ganze beruht auf Ermittlungen, die auf 1998 zurückgehen. Dass jetzt zugeschlagen wurde, hängt mit der Ankündigung über Verhandlungen zusammen und sollen den Friedensprozess torpedieren.

DC, 26.06.2006 05:09

Since 01/06, when the Palestinians elected a Hamas-dominated government, the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) have accelerated their brutal treatment. After Israeli PM, Ehud Olmert, appeared before the lapdog U.S. Congress on May 31, 2006, the IOF also slaughtered 32 Palestinians, including 10 children. On 06/23/06, Tim Rothermel and Laila El-Haddad, at a Capitol Hill forum, warned that the Palestinians may, eventually, face starvation, too.
