Council backs off from incinerator expansion decision

United Kingdom, 15.07.2006 17:08

Nottingham City Council has again put off the decision on weather to grant WRG a planning application to expand Nottingham's Eastcroft incinerator. The political opposition has also joined the fight to prevent the expansion of the UK's most polluting incinerator, here in the City centre. The decision on the planning application to expand Eastcroft incinerator will not now be made on 19 July and therefore NAIL's protest on this date has been cancelled. NAIL will however be present this Monday 17 July from 12 noon to 2 pm in front of the Council House to greet Councillors as they arrive for a Council meeting.

It's Time to End the &quot;Last Taboo&quot; and Hold Israel Accountable for Its Actions

Arkansas, 15.07.2006 16:09

The "Last Taboo" was the title of eminent Palestinian-born writer, scholar and activist Edward Said's essay written shortly before his death in September, 2003.

Politics of Personal Destruction

Tennessee, 15.07.2006 15:08

I wish to begin this column with a letter to the editor (LTE) that I just had published in the Rutherford Reader: “It is with a heavy heart that I write this letter after reading the "Dougie Rants" segment in the June 29-July 5 issue. His rant of the week was to compare anyone who disagreed with his conservative viewpoints as "stupid" by stealing the punch-line from the recent Ron White comedy special, "you can't fix stupid." If you support the ACLU, you are stupid; if you disagree with the pre-emptive war in Iraq you are stupid, and so on.

Lebanon, Iran, Sudan: Three more premeditated neocon wars

Before emotions get the upper hand, let's catch our breath and consider what General Wesley Clark wrote in 2003--that as of late 2001, the Neocon-led Pentagon was planning a five-year campaign of wars against seven countries: Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Iran, Somalia and Sudan. (And let's not forget that Sudan has both oil and uranium.) read the full article...

Local radio show promotes hatred toward cyclists

Portland, 15.07.2006 06:39

Cyclist Lanette Noble was driving across town yesterday morning when she tuned her radio dial to 95.5 Jammin' FM and heard the hosts of the Emmy-nominated morning show "The Playhouse" talking about cyclists. She was appalled at what she heard next: "I couldn't believe my ears. The hosts began by discussing their hatred and frustration for cyclists."

Lanette, a Nike employee who commutes to work, says that the female host told a story about a friend who had recently hit a cyclist with her car while driving downtown. The cyclist was sent to the hospital. Lanette thought the host would be saddened by this news, but instead she says that "the male host was elated." Here's more from Lanette:

"He then encouraged listeners to call in and tell more stories of cyclist who had been smashed by cars because the thought of it really pumped him up...the male host then explained how much he hated cyclists and said, "When I hear on TV that a cyclist has been hit and killed by a car I laugh, I think it's funny"

Sadr City is a small neighborhood in Baghdad that holds over half the city's population. It was the center of Shi'a resistance to Saddam's regime, the Northern epicenter of the two Shi'a intifadahs, and is now the stronghold of Moqtada Al Sadr's Mehdi Army.

Latin Kings; Black & Gold:

In 1994 the Latin Kings, the largest and most powerful street gang in New York, became the Latin King and Queen Nation. They claim to have abandoned their criminal past and to be following in the footstaeps of the Black Panthers and the Young Lords.

With over 3,000 members in New York, some saw the Nation as the most important political movement to rise from the streets in decades. The NYPD did not agree, calling it a vicious gang with a PR campaign....The Kings and Queens shatter the racist cultural representation of urban youth and provide us all with a hope for the human ability to escape an oppressive political and economic system. Their voice needs to be heard in this country. "My brothers and sisters. . . it's time to go downtown."

Open Letter to Rotary, Destroyers of Akha Culture

Portland, 15.07.2006 06:39

Trevi Albin of Rotary International has published photos and a story about the Children of the Golden Triangle Mission in Thailand, which is a christian mission that takes Akha children away from their families for conversion and propaganda. This mission we have known for years and they are agressively engaged in the destruction of Akha culture. The mission is dominated by Chinese from Taiwan, some of the most brutal fundamentalists, with agendas for young Akha women that are not all together clear. Trevi is promoting Rotary sponsors to support this mission with donations. We oppose Rotary's involvement in this.
Rotary owes the Akha an apology.

Mexico Vote Fraud's Death by a Thousand Videotapes; Obrador reveals tapes, audio, photos

Portland, 15.07.2006 06:39

Mexico Splits in Half: the Election Hits the Streets

A full week after the most viciously contested presidential election in its modern history, a Florida-sized fraud looms over the Mexican landscape and the nation has been divided almost exactly in half along political, economic, geographical and racial lines.

Video, audio and photographic evidence of election fraud surges daily. It is the dominant news story in Mexico. Obrador released a similar video of election officials in PAN-controlled Quer?taro changing the vote tallies to create more votes for its candidate. The PAN does not deny the facts. It simply claims that those cases amounted to normal, allowed, functions by election officials. The public temper rises with every such justification. Moreover, the disputed election pits an indignant Indian and mestizo underclass that believes AMLO was swindled out of the presidency by electoral fraud against a wealthy white conservative minority that controls the nation's media, its banks, and apparently, the Federal Electoral Institute (IFE), Mexico's maximum electoral authorities. Lopez Obrador charges the IFE and its president Luis Carlos Ugalde with orchestrating Calderon's uncertain triumph. | Death By Video

would anybody support a secessionist candidate for state legislature?

Portland, 15.07.2006 06:39

I'm just interested if people would support a progressive candidate who used his own money to finance a run at state legislature and promising to bring debate to the Legislature Floor about secession--whether or not the Federal Govt is serving Oregonian according to constitutional principles and whether this state should exercise its right to seceed from the USA, possibly in concert with Washington and California.

Rally for the Klamath River Salmon!

Portland, 15.07.2006 06:39

Klamath River Tribes, fishermen, and citizens are fighting to remove PacifiCorp's Klamath dams and BRING THE SALMON HOME! The fate of the dams is still under negotiation and Portland based PacifiCorp, the dams owner (Warren Buffet being the company's largest share holder) needs to hear from the people of the Klamath and all those who are supportive in person!

Four dams are up for their 50 year re-licencing by FERC (Federal Energy Relicencing Commission). This is an opportunity of a life time to have these antiquated fish-blocking dams decommissioned and removed. The fate of the dams is still under negotiation and Portland based PacifiCorp, the dams owner (Warren Buffet being the company's largest share holder) needs to hear from the people of the Klamath and all those who are supportive in person. The Klamath, Karuk, Yurok, and Hoopa Tribes and non-native river communities rely on salmon and a healthy Klamath River Basin to survive. As long as the dams stand, serious environmental and cultural in-justices continue, including loss of the thriving Klamath salmon fishery, negative health effects due to loss of salmon as part of the traditional diet, and degraded water quality. Salmon need cold, clean, and adequate amounts of water, and so do we!

This event will begin at 11AM at Holladay Park (NE Multnomah & NE 13th), continuing as a march to the Convention Center (Lloyd & MLK) for a rally at 12:30pm where International hydropower corporations are holding their bi-annual HydroVision Conference.
There will be representatives from the Klamath River tribes speaking at the rally. Bring signs, puppets, water, snacks and LOTS of friends!

Less than a week after angry right-wing radicals called for the New York Times to be leveled as a penalty for its investigative journalism, the paper got a nasty letter in the mail Friday. Police were called after an employee in the paper's mailroom opened a business-sized envelope containing a beige powder. According to the AP, the substance is likely corn starch.

About the Sunday workshop: Antiauthoritarians and social justice activists often think they're immune from racism and prejudice. But many Jewish activists' experience shows that forms of antisemitism are alive and well in the social justice movement. This not only drives away many Jewish activists, but profoundly affects our work as a movement. [Read More]

Shitty treatment of former employee betrays change at People's Food Co-op

Portland, 15.07.2006 01:38

Many of you reading this might remember me as "spArkle", a former cashier at People's Food Co-op, in Southeast. "Former"? That's right. They fired me, back in April. And now they're contesting my eligibility to get unemployment benefits. "Fired"? "Contesting" my unemployment? That doesn't sound like what a Co-op should do, you say. I agree. But it's not actually surprising, considering the direction that place is going these days. If you shop at People's and think of it as being a comfy, caring, community store, read on...

July 15th 2006 -- Day of Action for Climate Justice

San Francisco Bay Area, 15.07.2006 00:39

On July 15th, the "Group of 8" (G8) richest industrialized countries will gather in St. Petersburg, Russia to plot their continued commodification and domination of the planet. The focus of the gathering is "Energy Security," which apparently means trillions of dollars in new investments in oil, gas and coal production worldwide, plus wide-scale global expansion of nuclear energy. In response to this threat to the environment, it was announced that July 15th would be an International Day of Direct Action against Climate Change and the G8. The Davis Anti-Biotech Coalition will be distributing info about SB 1056 at 9am on Monday, July 17th outside of the USDA building in Davis. Protests will also be held in London, Washington, DC, and Russia.

Action Alert: Stop the Commercial Release of genetically engineered (GE) Plums

Portland, 14.07.2006 18:39

The United Sates Department of Agriculture (USDA) is now accepting public comments regarding the commercial approval of a Genetically Engineered (GE) plum variety, known as "C5." Not only would the approval of C5 be the first commercially released GE tree variety in the United States, but also the first GE fruit approved for human consumption. Approval of C5 will pave the way for more GE food and tree varieties, as well as guarantee the widespread genetic contamination of conventional and organic stone fruit varieties, including plums, peaches, cherries, and apricots.

Since commercial approvals of GE soy, corn, cotton, and canola almost a decade ago, grassroots activists have effectively stopped new approvals of GE crops. Genetically Engineered crops have contaminated organic varieties, have not been adequately safety tested, and have contributed to the the corporate takeover of the seed supply.

Please contact the USDA today and call for strict health, safety and environmental testing for all GE crops, as well as increased funding for ecological and integrated pest management alternatives for the plum pox virus.

Kebele Reborn as Community Co-op

Bristol, 14.07.2006 14:11

A New Era Dawns as Kebele breaks Free! A New Era Dawns as Kebele breaks Free! mh writes: As the Kebele Social Centre approaches it's 11th anniversary later this year, it has already given itself an early birthday present – by paying off it’s mortgage well ahead of schedule. Yes that’s right. Kebele [which means Kebele 'community place' in Ahmaric] has full control over its building from now on, free from the restrictions of capitalist profiteering. And you thought it was just a bunch of hippy lifestylists with dogs on strings? Think again, scratch the surface, and go beyond the perceived stereotypes. You may be surprised – at the commitment, motivation and political awareness of those involved. Kebele, located in Easton, is Bristol’s only social centre run entirely by volunteers, that both promotes and engages in radical anti-capitalist ideas & activities. Historically Kebele has incorporated both the Kebele Housing Co-op - that provides live-in residents for the building, AND the Kebele Kulture Projekt – that is responsible for the café, library, infoshop, bike workshop, meeting space, and much more. Kebele now intends to re-constitute itself as a community co-op, and the 'core members' will spend the summer months sorting out the practicalities of this, and considering the exciting possibilities that are available now that the financial burdens of the ‘death grip’, aka the mortgage, have been removed. At the same time, Kebele is looking for more (and new) people to get involved...

Machinists Union on Strike Against Cummins NW LLC

Portland, 14.07.2006 04:39

An Unfair Labor Practice strike began at 7:00 a.m. Friday, July 7th at the Northwest Cummins locations in Portland, Oregon, Seattle and Spokane, Washington.

This morning I had the chance to speak with some of the striking member of the Portland Machinists Union, IAM 24. On my way to work I stopped by to take some pictures and find out more about their strike.

On of the first things I had asked the folks there was if they had gotten any media attention yet, it had been nearly a full week and I assumed that the media would break the story. They said I was the first reporter to stop and ask questions...but I wouldnt be the last.

Eyewitness Account from Lebanon

DC, 14.07.2006 03:09

Beirut, Lebanon | Yesterday, July 12, one of the bridges nearby was bombed. By the time I made it home, only minutes later, Israeli war planes had bombed the area hitting two other bridges close by. Then, around midnight local time we heard that the bombings had killed many people who lived near the bridges, again only few blocks away from me. Four cars fell off the bridge during the attack. These two bridges are part of the new highway which was built by the late Prime Minister Rafic Harriri to connect Beirut with southern Lebanon. According to news reports, a total of 13 bridges were destroyed by Israeli airplanes by the end of last night.
