Not Guilty. The Pitstop Ploughshares All Acquitted on All Charges

Aotearoa, 26.07.2006 02:39

Yesterday morning, anti-war activists Deirdre Clancy, Nuin Dunlop, Karen Fallon, Ciaron O'Reilly and Damien Moran were aquitted by a jury at a significant trial in The Four Courts in Dublin. Since their action on the 3rd February 2003 the five defendants have waited three years for todays verdict, under onerous bail conditions, with two other trials collapsing (Trial 1,Trial 2). In a statement released immediately after the verdict the Pitstop Ploughshares said:

"The jury is the conscience of the community chosen randomly from Irish society. The conscience of the community has spoken. The government has no popular mandate in providing the civilian Shannon airport to service the US war machine in it's illegal invasion and occupation of Iraq. [...]
"The decision of this jury should be a message to London, Washington DC and the Dail that Ireland wants no part in waging war on the people of Iraq. Refuelling of US warplanes at Shannon Airport should cease immediately. "

- Ciaron, Damien, Karen, Deirdre and Nuin.

Kein Neonazi-Aufmarsch in Brunnen am 1. August 2006!!

Switzerland, 26.07.2006 00:07

Bereits am 9. August 2005 hatte das Bündnis für ein buntes Brunnen (bbb) den Gemeinderat von Ingenbohl SZ um die Bewilligung einer antifaschistischen Platzkundgebung mit multikulturellem Strassenfest für den 1. August 2006 in Brunnen ersucht.
Leider wurde das Gesuch aber sowohl vom Gemeinderat als auch vom Schwyzer Verwaltungsgericht abgewiesen. Nach erneutem Weiterzug ist die Sache nun beim Bundesgericht hängig. Trotz einjähriger Vorlaufzeit bleibt das Anliegen des bbb also in der Schwebe: Einerseits liegt keine Bewilligung für die Kundgebung vor, andererseits wurde die Bewilligung aber auch nicht letztinstanzlich verweigert.
Das bbb freut sich deshalb über alle, die am 1. August 2006 in Brunnen dennoch ihrem Protest gegen rechtsextreme Auftritte, gegen deren behördliche Begünstigung und gegen die Missachtung von Grundrechten Ausdruck geben wollen, und solidarisiert sich mit ihnen.
Auf jeden Fall findet am 6. August ein grosser antirassistischer Sonntagsspaziergang in Bern statt. Die Demo ist bewilligt!
Die Demo ist dabei der Abschluss des dreitägigen Antifascist Festival

The Queens Blackout: The Brutal Human Costs of Con Ed’s Drive For Profit

NYC, 25.07.2006 23:39

More than a week after Con Edison’s aging infrastructure buckled under the impact of a heat wave, plunging residents of a large swathe of New York City’s borough of Queens into darkness and sweltering heat, at least 10,000 people remained without electric power Monday.

At its peak, the blackout affected more than 100,000 people in the predominantly working class neighborhoods of Astoria, Woodside, Sunnyside, Long Island City and Hunters Point. Most of them were left without electricity for a full week. Families were forced to throw out their food and were left with no means to light or cool their homes. The aged and the sick were subjected to intense suffering. Small businesses, including many restaurants and food stores, suffered crippling losses.

Sacramento Kings Arena funding plan: a 'massive giveaway' of Sacramento taxpayer money

San Francisco Bay Area, 25.07.2006 20:09

PUBS, a coalition of community interest advocates, said that deal is just not a good one for Sacramento.

During its press conference to annouce its opposition to the funding plan earlier this week, Don Tomayo, a spokesperson for PUBS, stated, "This deal is even worse than we expected. The County and City agree to spend a half billion dollars to build a stadium, accept all risk of cost overruns...If the Maloofs really just want a better stadium for their team, why do they need all the revenue from the stadium?"

Roxbury SafetyNet folks are urging people to come out for this, and so is Operation: Over.

UK Identity Card scheme - really finished? Let's make sure.

United Kingdom, 25.07.2006 15:08

Labour's ID scheme is supposedly on the rocks, but let’s not be overly comforted by this news. There are good reasons to continue to build up the pressure. In particular, passport developments in the UK Identity and Passport Service (IPS) and the European Union could result in alternative identity databases, and since the Act is on the statute books, compulsory ID could start at any future date.

From emails leaked to the Sunday Times on July 9th, a senior Whitehall official has said the multi-billion pound scheme for compulsory ID cards and the National Identity Register (NIR) could take years to introduce and is likely to end in failure, and officials responsible for ID in the crisis-ridden Home Office are preparing for the project to be 'canned completely'. We can rejoice that a damning assessment from those closest to the plan should help to undermine Labour’s attempts to win support for ID cards. But let’s not be overly comforted by this news.

He's in town once again...

United Kingdom, 25.07.2006 15:08

After the Evening Post reported on the 13th July that the "Prime Minister Tony Blair was to visit Nottingham this month to give a speech on public health", various articles appeared on the Notts Indymedia newswire. Speculating about dates, times and venues. Many people seemed keen on attending the event. It has now become known that Tony Blair will visit Nottingham tommorrow (August 26th) and will attend an event at the The Albert Hall, North Circus St (off Derby Rd), Nottingham, NG1 5AA. Doors open at 09:30, and the event will finish around 12:30.

When Tony Blair visited Nottingham previously to set out new plans for a nuclear power policy, up to 100 people blockaded the East Midlands conference centre, where the meeting was held. Mr. Blair was forced to flee through the backdoor in order to leave the premises.

Two Big Rate Cases Underway

Portland, 25.07.2006 13:08

PGE and PacifiCorp have both filed rate increase requests, both of them highly - shall we say? - optimistic. PacifiCorp wants a 13% increase in rates amounting to about $110 million additional dollars from ratepayers; PGE wants 8.6% or $130 million. Our analysis shows that little or no rate increase should be granted in either case.

Current status is that while we are well underway, we are also far from done in even presenting and hearing arguments in the two rate cases. We have gone through settlement discussions, filed testimony in the general rate case and power cost update rate case for PacifiCorp, and in the power cost update case for PGE. We are working through other intervenors' testimony (such as Industrial Customers of Northwest Utilities) and the testimony of PUC Staff.

The Case Of Chaos

Portland, 25.07.2006 13:08

When progressives talk about the stupidity of this administration, I remember what Governor Richards once said during the campaign before the 2000 election. She told democrats not to underestimate this guy, he is smarter than he seems. If you believe that Bush and those who control him are stupid then you are foolish. I suggest we start acknowledging the concept of Organized Chaos as the driving force behind this administration. This is not a new concept but one that should get more attention because it is closer to the truth than any others in the market place of ideas. Bush is out to create chaos whenever he can; this is why I write this piece.

Nottingham activists join creative roadshow in south-eastern Europe

United Kingdom, 25.07.2006 12:09

The Art and Activism Caravan is a border crossing project, that started early June, travelling for 3 months from Greece via Macedonia, Albania, Montenegro, Serbia, Bosnia Herzegovina and Hungary to the eco-activist gathering Ecotopia in Slovakia. Its aim is to support and connect youth, campaign, community and activist groups, their actions and campaigns with creative forms of activism. The participant share skills in the field of video, creative writing, music and dance, sculpturing, street performance, drawing and painting, samba and screen printing.

Four activists from the art-activist collective The Mischief Makers joined the Caravan from Nottingham. Their workshops have consisted of making banners, costumes and puppets as well as mosaics and other 'action props'. On return a film showing is planned to take place in Nottingham, showing films made during the Caravan with participants in the video activist workshops. Others within the Mischief Maker collective are planning on giving workshops during the Camp for Climate Action, held near Leeds from 26 August - 4 Sept.

See AA Caravan Indymedia for full coverage of the project.

Sheffield Protests Against Israeli Aggression

United Kingdom, 25.07.2006 11:08

Hundreds of people protested in Sheffield on 22nd July 2006 against the ongoing Israeli war on Lebanon and Palestine. The demonstration was called at short notice by the Sheffield Stop the War Coalition, Sheffield Palestine Solidarity Campaign and The Sheffield Muslim Association of Britain with the slogans, "Hands off Lebanon - Freedom for Palestine - Don't attack Syria - Don't attack Iran".

Despite very heavy rain there was an energetic, impromptu, march around the city centre which took the one policeman on duty by suprise. The route taken was down Pinstone Street towards the Moor, up to Fitzalan Square, up Carver Street, across Division Street and onto West Street. The protestors then marched down the tram tracks to Fargate — a route that would never have been agreed by the police in advance — and back to the Town Hall. It was all over by 1pm.

The protest was part of an International Day of Action in which tens of thousands of people throughout the world took to the streets to protest. In London, up to 30,000 marched from Whitehall, through central London, to Hyde Park, where they held a rally [ 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | Another Wasted Opportunity]. Similar, but smaller, demonstrations took place in other cities up and down the country, including Manchester, York, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

It's been a year: Joan Norman

Portland, 25.07.2006 10:39

July 23, 2005 Joan Norman was killed in Southern Oregon in a car accident. I was lucky enough to meet her and talk to her. I was inspired by what she had to say. I miss her. She made me feel like I was part of a community again. We shared a passion for the wild places. I would go there in a minute except I know that that is not what I am to do now. I have to stay with the human community, what's left of if and try to teach peace and resistance.

I would not matter if I went to the forest...the loggers and others would come there and cut it down around me. The warming of the earth from man's pollution will start fires that will come to my place under the trees. My heart would break. It's better to stand in the middle of the war of man and resist. And, help others the best I can.

[pl] [en] Apel w sprawie Tomka Wilkoszewskiego

Poland, 25.07.2006 09:09

(English version below)

Tomek Wilkoszewski przebywa w Sieradzkim więzieniu od 10 lat. Trafił tam w 1996 r. Uczestniczył w bójce, w której zginał nazista. W sądzie nikogo nie obchodziło, że kilka lat był dręczony i poniżany przez lokalnych nazi skinheadów. Pochodzi ze wsi, z biednej rodziny, nie miał pieniędzy na skutecznego adwokata. Osadzono go jak zwykłego mordercę. 15 lat pozbawienia wolności dla osoby działającej w samoobronie to doskonały przykład państwowej „sprawiedliwości”.

Po odbyciu 2/3 zasądzonej kary Tomek uzyskał wreszcie prawo do ubiegania się o warunkowe zwolnienie. W więzieniu ma wzorową opinię, kontynuował naukę. Mimo, że za pozostawieniem Tomka w zamknięciu nie przemawiają żadne przesłanki, po raz kolejny odmawia się wypuszczenia go na wolność, nie podając żadnych powodów. Podczas ostatnich kilku lat zebrano tysiące podpisów pod petycjami w jego sprawie, sąd wciąż odrzuca składane wnioski. Najprawdopodobniej pod koniec października tego roku odbędzie się kolejna rozprawa o warunkowe zwolnienie dla Wilkoszewskiego. Niestety bez fachowej pomocy prawnej są nikłe szanse na to, by Tomek je uzyskał. Potrzebny jest adwokat, tym bardziej, że z prawnego punktu widzenia, nic nie stoi na przeszkodzie, aby Tomka z więzienia zwolnic. Pozostawiając Wilkoszewskiego samego sobie zaprzepaścilibyśmy niepowtarzalną okazję, by wreszcie wyciągnąć go z bagna, w które trafił również z powodu idei, które są bliskie nam wszystkim. Szeroko rozumiany ruch antyfaszystowski i wolnościowy jest mu to po prostu winny.

Apelujemy do wszystkich grup i osób, aby wsparły Tomka każdą sumą, którą będą w stanie uzbierać. Pieniądze na adwokata potrzebne są już teraz (koszt adwokata wyniesie ok. 3000 zł). Poza tym gdyby Tomek wyszedł jeszcze w tym roku potrzebne będą mu pieniądze na zaspokojenie podstawowych potrzeb, gdyż opuści więzienie praktycznie bez żadnych środków do życia. Potrzebna będzie pomoc przy znalezieniu pracy, mieszkania itp.

Musimy zaangażować się wszyscy!

Migrant Solidarity Prevails in Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz, CA, 25.07.2006 08:08

A group of racists who organize through the website "Illegal Immigrant Protest dot com" called for an "Illegal Immigrant Protest Rally" at the Town Clock in Santa Cruz on July 22nd. Peace and social justice activists from across Santa Cruz County put out a call for solidarity with migrants and to confront and educate the out-of-town "anti-alien" group. About 30 activists showed up in solidarity with migrants and 3 "anti-alien" protesters came to Santa Cruz to scapegoat problems in our society on people migrating from Mexico to the United States. Feeling far too outnumbered and unwelcome, the racists returned to their cars and drove back over the hill.

Score one against Corporate Radio: Grant Park bike picnic after report

Portland, 25.07.2006 06:40

Radio station Jammin' 95.5 in Portland, Oregon learns, the hard way, that citizen cyclists are not going to accept a mere apology from the nationally syndicated morning show, The Playhouse, for inciting violence from their listeners on July 13, 2006 toward people riding their bicycle on public roads. Local cyclists peacefully create more conflict at a radio station sponsored public picnic in Grant Park, while keeping it fun for the attending families and children.

At the end I am asking for your help in keeping pressure on the station.

palestine journal: july 21

Portland, 25.07.2006 06:40

it's the continual process of turning human beings into names into numbers, in the ongoing compilation of statistics that add up to hundreds.....hundreds of human beings, each one of them with their own lives, stories and a seven-year old who just learned to ride a bike, one a grandmother who was almost finished embroidering a pillow for her daughter.....each person, each story, is lost in this barrage of numbers....

the following was written today by nora, an american woman who has been volunteering in a refugee camp in bethlehem:

There will be no statistics in this journal entry because what difference does 10 shredded children in Gaza, or 15 sliced children in Lebanon, or 40 smashed children in Iraq make to the international community anyway? What difference does it make when the twisted and sick US corporate media doesn't even mention their names, or their ages, or their favorite color -- something to put a human face on the mangled mess made by the latest US-manufactured, Israeli-fired missile that destroyed what used to be a nose, a mouth, two eyes, freckles, cheek, or forehead?

On Friday afternoon in Watsonville, community members let Maria Shriver, wife of Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, know just how they felt about her visit to their heavily immigrant city. Carrying signs that read, "Arnold Supports Terrorists" and "No Somos Tu Picture Op! Terminator Go Home!", people protested the visit from California's first lady. Billed as a promotion of the food stamp program, many attendees felt it was staged as a public relations opportunity with the Mexican-American community on behalf of her husband, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger who is up for re-election this November.
