United Kingdom, 05.07.2006 11:08

From July 15th to 17th the G8 will meet in Strelna, a suburb of St.Petersburg, Russia.

While the Situation for protest in Russia is very different (Interview) from the UK during the G8 in Gleneagles, the "Network against the G8" calls for protest against the summit and invites people from around the world to come to Russia.

A cycle caravan has already started from Berlin to St.Petersburg. (reports and photos) There will be a libertarian forum in Moscow 8-12 of July as a build up event for protests in St. Petersburg. Main issues of the forum will be energy issues, and G8 plans for a nuclear power renaissance.

On 14th of July there is a call for a Global Day of Action. In many cities of the world there will be protests against neo-liberal politics of the G8. There are actions announced for Washington, Manchester, Berlin, Hamburg , Manila and many other cities.

In Mali the "forum des peuples" will take place from July 15th-17th.

Environmental groups call for an action day for Radical Ecological Action Against Climate Change on July 15th.

During the days of the summit there will be a social forumin St. Petersburg and a convergence space in the Kirov stadium (with an autonomous space).

See the protest calendar for details.

Portland Mercury contributing to Patriarchal bullshit (Again)

Portland, 05.07.2006 04:39

This story is specially dedicated to those of you out there who still defend the City's trashy weeklies -- "I only read the Willy Week and the Mercury"; that is, to those whose addiction to the corporate media still hasn't been broken. I'd like you to take a look at the current cover of the Portland Mercury and tell me how it's not just f'n trash. Not that anyone should expect much from a publication that stays afloat selling sex ads.

The suggestion of domination in the particular pose chosen by the Mercury is not only obvious but clearly intended. Intended not only to shock or titillate, but also to excuse. Part of the the Mercury's demographic are the City's hipsters -- those mostly white, fashionably-dressed, tiny cell-phone carryin', "liberals" you see on N. Mississippi, at Last Thursday, or in the Nite Lite Lounge -- and these kids are being told by the Mercury that Sexism Is Okay. "Hey relax everybody; We've had Third Wave Feminism. Now it's okay to use images like this because women hold power over men because they are desired by them. The stripper grips the reigns of power, not the businessman with the fistful of dollars. Don't be such a square."

The plain truth is that most men don't LIKE women ... [ Read More ]

Mexican Election Deadlocked: Actual Count Wed

San Diego, 05.07.2006 03:38

Both of the leading candidates in Mexico’s presidential election have claimed victory. Conservative free marketer Felipe Calderon holds a narrow one-point lead according to preliminary tallies of Sunday’s vote. The actual vote count doesn’t begin until Wednesday and could drag on for days. Supporters of leftist candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador suspect he may be a victim of fraud after some exit polls showed him winning but they are taking a wait-and-see attitude until the final results are released.

No chains on Mill Road

United Kingdom, 05.07.2006 01:09

Local residents have formed a 'No Chains' campaign to save Mill Road from becoming yet another identiket street of multinational chain stores.

Mill Road is treasured for its individuality but the encroachment of multinational chain stores - Pizza Hut, Chicken Cottage and Subway- is threatening this unique neighbourhood.

In their most recent action last Friday evening, 20 residents took over Mill Road Pizza Hut on with a "No Chains" party with music, dancing, balloons and playing twister to show their refusal to give up their neighbourhood. While the employees behind the counter appeared amused by the party, the manager and police eventually shut down the fun after half an hour.

An Alternative Refugee Week

United Kingdom, 04.07.2006 23:09

In an attempt to rejuvenate the watered-down offical Refugee Week, with the more serious issues regarding asylum and immigration often being muffled or overlooked, many grassrooots groups throughout the country organised alternative events and actions during and around the Week (19-25 June) to bring these issues to the fore.

On the main day (17 June) of Celebrating Sanctuary, Birmingham's version of Refugee Week, Birmingham NoBorders distributed leaflets exposing The Angel Group, the housing providers who provide "core funding" for the event, and criticising Celebrating Sanctuary for, among other things, being "funded by such dodgy asylum profiteers." On 20th June, the Birmingham Anti-Racist Campaign (ARC) held a vigil in the grounds of St. Philip's Cathedral in Birmingham to commemorate asylum seekers who took their own lives while awaiting the Home Office's decision or incarcerated in detention centres. June 30th saw a day of NoBorders events, starting with the monthly picket of the immigration reporting centre in Solihull, followed by screenings and a Party Without Borders benefit gig in the evening.

Similarly, Leeds Noborders marked the Week by organising a series of activities, icliding a demonstion outside Waterside reporting centre, which forced the Home Office to contact asylum seekers beforehand and tell them not to report that day; an evening of film and food at the Common Place as well as leafleting hundres in Leeds city centre.

June 22th was a national day of action against reporting centres, called by Newcastle-based Tyneside Community Action for Refugees, who stageded a noise demonstration outside North Shields reporting centre in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. There were similar demos outside reporting centres in Leeds, London and Manchester. In London, about 20 people from Fight Racism! Fight Imperialism!, All-African Women's Group, the National Coalition of Anti-Deportation Campaigns and others demonsrtated outside the Communications House in central London, where most people who walk past have no idea what the building is. On 1st July there was another picket at the same place organised by London No Borders. In Manchester, the North West Asylum Seekers Defence Group organised a picket of Dallas Court. They had also held a day of action, with stalls and leaflets, on Market St. in Manchester on 17 June.

On June 24th, a demostration to close down Tinsley House detention centre near Gatwick Airport, called by London Against Detention, was held as part of nation-wide action to highlight the number of deaths in detention centers. This comes at a time when over 100 people are on hungerstrike in Campsfield detention centre near Oxford, and the hungerstrike in Colnbrook detention centre, near Heathrow, is still ongoing since 8 April, 2006.

Other events included an evening to welcome refugees at the Community Base in Brighton on 19th June and a social evening of Nigerian food and music at The Basement in Manchester on the 25th, organised by Defend Eucharia and Timeyi Campaign.

On July 3rd, fiesta mysteriosa hosted Santa Cruz's 2nd Annual Old Time American Flag Burn at Seabright Beach. The celebration was a B.Y.O.F. event. Before the burning and melting of more than a dozen American flags, people gathered around the fire pit to share their personal feelings and beliefs about burning American flags. It is legal to burn American flags, however the burning of US currency is illegal. Dollar bills, powerful symbols of global capitalism, were also burned, despite the illegality of the act.

JULY 4000/JULIO 4000

San Diego, 04.07.2006 18:09

Join the JULY 4000 Committee
July 4th, 9am at 25th and Imperial Ave. in San Diego

for a symbolic display of 4,000 white flags, strung together down Imperial Avenue in remembrance of the casualties of “citizenship”

According to official estimates, more than 4,000 people have died crossing through the borderlands since Operation Gatekeeper began in 1994. Human rights advocates place the number at more than 10,000. Each year sets a new record for number of deaths.

History will not be kind when it judges the 4th of July 2006. Our children’s children will one day have the clarity to peel back the star-spangled veneer of patriotic allegiance, revealing the hypocrisy of “freedom and justice for all.” Exposed will be the cold and vicious crimes against humanity done in the name of flags.

Josh Sonnenfeld writes: As I read through the articles, stories and remembrances of former UC Santa Cruz Chancellor Denice D. Denton, I feel like I'm meeting her for the first time. I'm meeting the role model and mentor of women in science and engineering. I'm meeting the first openly queer woman to lead a major research university. I'm meeting the person who publicly challenged Harvard's sexist President. I'm meeting the woman I, and most in the Santa Cruz community, never got the chance to know.
