Israeli Actions in Gaza and Lebanon – Where is NYC?

NYC, 14.07.2006 00:09

I’ve been following the news really closely the past two weeks and I’ve been surprised to see a serious lack of coverage about what is going on in the Middle East on the IMC newswire. In addition to this, I’ve been surprised that I haven’t been able to find out about any emergency actions/events happening in NYC to assist in putting a halt to Israel’s military actions. ||Pay No Attention to the Israeli Bombardment of Lebanon ||Israel Kills Palestinians with U.S. Weapons ||Coverage of June 16 Emergency Rally

G8 te Sint-Petersburg

Netherlands, 13.07.2006 20:38

Van 15 tot 17 juli is er een G8-top in Strelna, een buitenwijk van Sint-Petersburg (Rusland).
Hoewel de situatie voor protesten in Rusland heel verschillend is (interview) met de situatie in de UK tijdens de G8-protesten in Gleneagles, roept het "Netwerk tegen de G8" op voor acties tegen de top en nodigt mensen uit de hele wereld uit om naar Rusland af te zakken.

Al voor het begin van de top is de repressie groot. Honderden mensen zijn opgepakt, mishandeld, gedeporteerd of "voor hun eigen veiligheid" opgesloten. Russische activisten roepen op tot internationale solidarteitsacties.

Earth First! blockades Virginia power plant

Richmond, 13.07.2006 20:08

Early this morning, activists with Earth First! and Rising Tide North America set up a non-violent blockade of American Electric Power's (AEP) nearly 50 year old Clinch River coal fired electric facility. Emitting millions of pounds of pollutants yearly, the Clinch River coal plant threatens the health and lives of thousands of downwind residents and the surrounding environment. Burning coal is not only a primary factor behind global climate change, but also drives the expansion of large scale strip mining. Large scale surface mining destroys forests, streams and communities as it alters the Appalachian landscape forever.

Water, Poverty and Clowning - a week in Tirana, Albania

United Kingdom, 13.07.2006 16:09

In Albania the Caravan was welcomed by people from Mjaft!, a movement committed to fighting political corruption and raising awareness of social and environmental issues concerning Albania. Workshops were held at various locations in Tirana, which is the capital of Albania with different sources stating somewhere between 500,000 - 1,000,000 inhabitants.

In Tirana Cat left and Johan joined the Caravan as a Rebel Clown trainer. It was a busy, hot and stressful week full of good and crazy experiences and well attended workshops. The participants were generally around 16-18 and some were part of youth and activist groups. The video workshops produced 3 films and the Clowns and Mischief Makers combined their efforts in an action for clean and reliable drinking water at the Ministry for Internal Affairs, in the middle of the city.

T in the Park rip off music fans

Scotland, 13.07.2006 13:40

Hundreds of music fans were evicted from the T in the Park Festival last weekend - despite having legitimately bought genuine tickets from approved outlets. The Festival bosses from DF Concerts caused heartbreak to many festival-goers by operating what they called a "zero tolerance" policy on lost or stolen tickets - refusing to replace them in the vast majority of cases. On top of this inadequately trained security guards mistakenly told up to 300 people to hand over their whole ticket. When the fans were unable to show ticket stubs at later checks, they were thrown out of the Tennents-sponsored festival, held near Kinross. "This festival just seems to be about making money," one festival-goer said. In response to the refusal to replace his stolen ticket, one fan even staged a one man sit-in in a festival tent. He peacefully resisted security guards' efforts to evict him, only eventually leaving when the police were about to arrest him.



A for Athens, B for Bitola...

United Kingdom, 13.07.2006 13:09

After a week of student uprising in Greece, the Art and Activism Caravan moved onto Macedonia, where it was welcomed by the Bitola Youth Forum, to fill a week of youth activities in the city of Bitola. Bitola is a city in the south-western part of the Republic of Macedonia, with just under 100.000 inhabitants.

Workshops included: action samba, silkscreening, video activism and rebel clowning, some of which took place at one of the local swimming pools. The Mischief Makers worked in a Roma settlement just outside the city. At the end of the week a large event was held in the local amphitheatre, which was joined by some local bands.

Derrick Jensen Benefit for Green Scare at Che Cafe

San Diego, 13.07.2006 06:10

Question: Which one book would you give to every politician?

Answer: One that explodes.

Before you freak out, let’s change the question and see what you think: Which one book would you give to Hitler, Goering, Himmler, and Goebbels? Let’s ask this another way: Would a book have changed Hitler? I don’t think so. Unless it exploded.

And before you freak out at the comparison of modern politicians to Hitler and his gang, try to look at it from the perspective of wild salmon, grizzly bears, bluefin tuna, or any of the (fiscally) poor or indigenous human beings. Those in power now are more destructive than anyone has ever been. And they are for the most part psychologically unreachable. And if someone does reach some politician, that politician will no longer be in power.

I recently shared a stage with Ward Churchill. He said the primary difference between the U.S. and the Nazis is that the U.S. didn’t lose.

I responded with one word: “Yet.”

NEST finds 30 red tree vole nests in timber sale

Portland, 13.07.2006 04:39

NEST (Northwest Ecosystem Survey Team) has just spent a wildly successful past month climbing trees to survey for red tree vole nests in the "Trapper" timber sale, a tract of mature forests 60 miles east of Eugene, in the McKenzie River watershed, Eugene's source of drinking water.

NEST climbers found a total of 30 red tree vole nests--the main food source of the threatened spotted owl--in the sale (whereas the Forest Service had only found 3). The Forest Service has been presented with the data, and will be revealing what buffers they plan to implement in the sale within the next week or so. If they do not implement protective buffers, a lawsuit is likely.



DoveLewis Animal Center Practices Needless Killing

Portland, 13.07.2006 04:39

I feel it is my duty to inform you of a very unfortunate situation that occurred at the DoveLewis Animal Emergency Clinic on NW Pettygrove in Portland on July 10th 2006. As my family and I went for a casual stroll through the neighborhood park we discovered an injured crow fledgling. It appeared to have a broken wing and a possible broken leg as well. We took it to the Portland Audubon Society only to realize that they were closed, and that their overnight animal box was no longer a continuing practice. There was a sign however, directing those with injured animals to bring them to the DoveLewis Emergency Animal Care Center on NW Pettygrove St.

I brought the injured fledgling to the care center. As I was waiting in the lobby, a confrontation was occurring between a nurse technician and a citizen who apparently brought in an injured bat. The nurse had just relayed the news that the bat was to be destroyed, and that there was nothing anyone could do. The citizen was explaining that the bat had an injury do to a crash in to a wall, and that the "neuro problems" they were witnessing were a result. The nurse said that even though she witnessed the accident there was no way to be sure if the bat was rabid or not, therefore had to be put down by law. When I approached the front desk a very disgruntled tech asked me what assistance was needed. I explained to them the situation. Unnerved by what I had just witnessed, I first asked what their policy was regarding custody of the bird. They were not very forth coming,

San Francisco Bay Area, 12.07.2006 18:39

On the Fourth of July, CodePink and Gold Star Families launched the nationwide fast, calling for the U.S. government to bring our troops home from Iraq--FAST.

In California, hunger strikers are also focusing on Assembly Joint Resolution 36, which opposes the Iraq war and was introduced by Lonnie Hancock. This measure would memorialize the President and Congress to restore the balance between the federal government and the states by limiting federal control of the California National Guard to cases where there is an insurrection or a declaration of war under the US Constitution.

Sacramento activist Victor* is one of about 3,000 nationwide fasting as part of a political statement to Bring the Troops Home Fast, but unlike many others, he was initially denied a permit to express his right to do so. Read More

Actions to Save Affordable Housing in Eugene

Portland, 12.07.2006 16:39

Because people around the state have a stake in this issue, they are joining opposition to the sale of Westmoreland Village, a student family housing community located in west Eugene. It is a publicly-owned low-cost student housing resource used by thousands of Oregonians over the past forty five years while attending the UO. If Westmoreland were sold, it would eliminate access to higher education for those who need such housing in order to afford rising tuition.

Contrary to the continuous local media spin, this is not a done deal. We can and will stop the sale of Westmoreland because it is bad policy on many levels and is against the public interest of the state-wide community. That's why we have received overwhelming support in the form of cards, letters and emails to the State Board. Urge the State Board of Higher Education to vote no on the UO proposed sale of Westmoreland Family Housing, a public resource consisting of 404 units of irreplaceable affordable housing in West Eugene.

Last Chance To Save Packers Field?

Bristol, 12.07.2006 10:38

Work due to commence on Packers Field imminently For the last two years residents living near to Packers Field (between Eastville, Greenbank and Whitehall) have been fighting to prevent the building of a private sports facility, and retain the field as a public space. packers field writes: Some residents of the Whitehall community have received notification from the City Academy that "the 'improvement works' are to begin in the next two weeks ... initially much of the work will involve earthworks and the whole site WILL BE CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC ... construction period to last about a YEAR'. It also adds that 'I hope that you will find the end result worth the disturbance....', which quite frankly is an insult to the feelings and hard work of the local community in opposing the development. Full Article. Wes writes: Meanwhile, the Principal of the Academy, Ray Priest, has bowed to pressure to hold another public meeting, to discuss the Community Use Agreement. This is a legal requirement that the Academy have to enter in to that sets out exactly how much access the public can have to the field. For those of you who don’t know. Packers’ Field is a seven acre space of green land that is sandwiched between the Whitehall, Eastville and Greenbank areas of Bristol. It has been used by local people for free receation and sport for decades. In 2002 the City Council leased the field to the City Academy, who plan to fence it off, build a running track, pitches and floodlights on it and restrict access to an area that is one of few remaining green spaces in the inner city. If the Academy get their way, it will be a huge loss to East Bristol.

With permanent human colonies on Mars within the century the ultimate goal of his “revitalized” space program, President Bush has introduced a future not unlike the naïve visions of space travel and Martian conquest from fifty years ago. Somberly contrasting this optimism is a hidden negativity – our days on Earth may finally be numbered.

HOLLYWOOD, July 8, 2006 - Police violence erupted in Hollywood today as a crowd of anti-Minutemen protesters and innocent bystanders were caught in the midst of a spontaneous police riot. As the Minutemen and their supporters held a protected rally on the southeast corner of Hollywood Blvd. and Argyle Street, the opposition overflowed to the nearby corners with the biggest crowd on the southwest corner. Having already surrounded the opposition protestors, members of the LAPD aggressively approached. This despite the fact that the opposition activists were non-violent even when approached by Minutemen provocateurs that frequently drifted across the street.

Cop Crackdown On the Eve of G8 in Russia

San Diego, 12.07.2006 08:40

Russia is on the verge of the G8 summit which is to be hosted in Saint Petersburg.

The activists belonging to different political and grass root organizations and groups scattered all over Russia are coming to Saint Petersburg to participate in the alternative "summit". These persons are being harassed and persecuted by the local police and security services agents on their way to Saint Petersburg.

Up to this date at least 100 people have been detained under various pretexts having no legal force. People are forcefully deprived of their documents, transportation tickets, stalked by unknown individuals and then once again arrested by police on the pretext of protecting their personal safety (!). On different occasions people have brutally been mishandled by police and secret service agents.

We are appealing to all people in the Western countries and asking them to voice their solidarity with the Russian political and social activists at this critical moment on the eve of the G-8 summit. We suggest that you picket the Russian embassies and consulates.
