Using Journalism As Activism

Portland, 31.07.2006 06:38

Journalism (or writing, publishing, and syndicating articles) can be used as a very effective means of activism. There used to be an old saying about the guy who owned the press in town having all the power. It is true there is a "power of the press," so to speak. It takes time and energy, and mental concentration, or *work,* to write articles in a coherent fashion. But if you want to donate your time to a cause, organization, community, etc., offering articles is a way you can help on many levels. When you highlight an organization in an article, for example, it is possible their membership will go up or donations to their cause may rise, due to the exposure. When you spend time researching an article on the history of some issue relevant to an upcoming event, protest, etc., it can help educate people as to why the protests are important and increase participation. You can spread all kinds of useful DIY information, you can give a voice to issues that you feel have not gotten enough exposure. You can use your journalism work to help others, on many levels.

The Highway to Hell: U.S. &amp; Israel Move to Remake Middle East (Indypendent)

NYC, 31.07.2006 02:08

There would be no need for a U.S. military presence in the Middle East today if not for the oil. Israel’s role is to keep the Arab nations divided and eliminate any threat to its regional dominance. That’s what it did in ’67 against Egypt , in ’82 against Syria and in ’81 with the bombing of Iraq’s nuclear reactor. Israel’s history from 1948 also negates the myth of “Israel the victim.” With the exception of the ’73 war it has been the aggressor every time.

Tijuana Report On the Edge: Juarez Femicides

San Diego, 30.07.2006 23:08

Between 70 and 80 people were in attendance at the Teatro de la Casa de la Cultura in Tijuana for Steev Hise's film On the Edge: The Femicides in Ciudad Juarez.

Lourdes Diaz, Director of Tijuana’s Women’s Municipal Institute gave the introduction. After the film about 80% of the audience stayed for over an hour of discussion with Steev Hise and Mrs. Sara Ruiz, moderated by Carmen Valadez of the Feminist Binational Collective.

Mrs. Ruiz’s daughter Sarita was abducted, assaulted and thrown from a moving car last December on to the streets of Tijuana by Pueblo Amigo, about four blocks away from the San Ysidro Port of Entry. She died six days later. Mrs. Ruiz carried out a 9-day hunger strike in June and says many mothers whose daughters have been victimized are afraid to speak out and have asked her to carry on for them also.

Majority awareness and actions are needed to halt and stop the spread of out-of-control atrocities. As evidenced by the reception of the screenings in San Diego and Tijuana this last week, On the Edge is an important step in this direction.

Im Laufe der Auseinandersetzung wurde ein Polizist nach Angaben der Polizei schwer am Auge verletzt, wobei die Ursache der Verletzung noch unbekannt ist.

Schwere Respression gegen &quot;D.I.Y. Camp&quot; in Freiburg

Austria, 30.07.2006 12:07

Vom 26. - 30. 7. 2006 findet in Freiburg (GER) das "D.I.Y. against the State" statt. Das DIY against the State soll sich dadurch von den üblichen, Festival-ähnlichen Camps unterscheiden, dass es vom AKTIVEN MITMACHEN und den Ideen aller Leute lebt, die kommen. Erste Eindruecke liefert ein Radiobeitrag des freien Radios Dreyeckland vom 27. Juli (Radio Dreyecksland - mp3, 5.6MB). Am Dienstag (25.7.) wird ein Grundstueck neben der Wagenburg der "Schattenparker" - angeblich unter Duldung der Stadt - besetzt. Das Programm des Camps reicht von Workshops, ueber Konzerte bis zu einer "Reclaim the Streets Party", die am Samstag (29.7.) stattfinden soll. Ab Freitag nacht eskaliert die Polizei massiv und nimmt die Verhaftung eines Sprayers als Vorwand, das Camp und alle geplanten Aktionen zu unterbinden, das Camp zu raeumen und auf jeden Versuch des Protests mit massiver, unverhaeltnismaessiger Repression zu reagieren.

Journalists and media under pressure

Freedom of speech and communication media independence from the power of governments and institutions is indispensable for the people to get an appropriate information and fully live in a democratic society. More and more, governments, parties and institutions put pressure on the media and the people working on them to emit partial and propagandistic information, and even to misinform, depending on their electoral, economics, prestige or propagandistic interests. The one who holds the politic power puts pressure on the media, but this doesn't turn out always well, above all when the pressures and misinformation end coming into light as it happens thanks to free and open publishing of some media, research journalism and the media and professionals who keep their independence despite the handicaps. Fortunately, there are still many and new ones coming.

Juarez Femicides Film Screening

San Diego, 30.07.2006 10:38

For more than a decade, the cities of Chihuahua and Juarez, near the US-Mexico border, have been killing fields for young women, the site of over 400 unsolved femicides. Despite the horrific nature of these crimes, authorities at all levels exhibit indifference, and there is strong evidence that some officials may be involved. Impunity and corruption has permitted the criminals, whoever they are, to continue committing these acts, knowing there will be no consequences.

A significant number of victims work in the maquiladora sector - sweatshops that produce for export with 90% destined for the United States. Despite the crime wave, they offer almost no protection for their workers.

Small advances in the struggle for justice are due to the perseverance of victims' families who cannot be silenced despite the efforts of state and federal authorities to keep them quiet. Often grassroots groups work in a climate of threats and defamation by government officials for making one simple demand - STOP THE FEMICIDE!

On Wednesday, 26 July, SDIMC, in collaboration with the Young Adult Mystery Squad and Voz Alta, showed two documentaries concerning the situation in Juarez at the First Unitarian Universalist Church in Hillcrest: On the Edge, by Steev Hise, and The Mothers of Juarez, by Zulma Aguiar. Steev Hise introduced the films and answered questions following the films. Audio Duration: 1min 50sec, 1min and 27min 50sec.



DOW (Agent Orange, Napalm, Bhopal) Wants To Spray Fluoride On Your Food, contact EPA here

Portland, 30.07.2006 06:08


EPA PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD ENDS AUGUST 4th. PLEASE SIGN TODAY!!

DOW Chemical has been lobbying the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to allow it to spray a new fluoride-based pesticide (sulfuryl fluoride) on hundreds of foods prepared in the US. If DOW gets its way, sulfuryl fluoride will become a major new source of fluoride, making it even more difficult for consumers to avoid fluoride in their daily lives. What's worse, the levels of fluoride allowed to be sprayed on food will be shockingly high: 70 ppm for processed foods, 130 ppm for wheat products, and 900 ppm for dried eggs!

Dow is the world's largest producer of plastics; with its 2001 acquisition of Union Carbide, it has become a major player in the petrochemical industry as well, out of which comes deadly pesticides and herbicides.

THE DEATH MARCH-DEL MAR'S RACE TO DEATH

San Diego, 30.07.2006 06:08

Today the Del Mar Racetrack should be called the Death Mar Racetrack. In 1998 at least nine horses died during the summer racing season and at that time the track was blamed for the fatalities, calling the "course's surface deep and even". (The Independent, London, August 19, 1998) Since the racing season began this year (less than three weeks ago) 7 horses have died, and it appears no one in charge at the racetrack can offer an explanation for the high number of deaths. What can you do?

Routing Out The Fascists in Fremont

San Francisco Bay Area, 30.07.2006 03:08

Immigrant rights activists gathered on July 28th at Fremont and Mowry Blvds. to counter the bi-weekly rally called by the racist East Bay Coalition for Border Security (EBCBS) which is looking to become an affiliate of the vigilante group, the Minutemen. The EBCBS, in an effort to hide the location of their demonstration from the anti-minutemen protesters, rallied a couple miles down Fremont Blvd in the Irvington neighborhood. By foot, bike and car, about 40 anti-minutemen protesters left Mowry Ave. and Fremont Blvd and went to the Irvington neighborhood (Fremont and Washington) to show solidarity with immigrants and route out fascism in Fremont.

Periodistas y medios bajo presión política

La libertad de expresión y la independencia de los medios de comunicación respecto al poder de los gobiernos y de las instituciones es imprescindible para que las personas reciban una información adecuada y vivan plenamente en una sociedad democrática. Cada vez más, gobiernos, partidos e instituciones presionan a los medios y las personas que en ellos trabajan para que se emita información parcial, propagandística y hasta desinformadoras, según sus intereses electorales, económicos, de prestigio o propagandísticos. El que ostenta el poder político presiona a los medios, pero eso no siempre les acaba saliendo bien, sobretodo si las presiones y desinformaciones acaban saliendo a la luz como pasa gracias a la publicación abierta y libre de algunos medios, al periodismo de investigación y a los medios y profesionales que mantienen su independencia a pesar de los obstáculos. Por suerte, todavía hay muchos y cada vez surgen nuevos.

U.S. weapons for Israel in San Diego

San Diego, 30.07.2006 00:38

On Friday morning, as I traveled north on Interstate 5, I passed two tractor-trailers heading south toward the 32nd Street Naval Station in downtown San Diego. Each vehicle carried about 10 unmarked bombs; each bomb was approximately 15 feet long. Two military helicopters hovered low above each tractor-trailer, providing overhead escort.

I wondered where these bombs were headed. They must have been in a big hurry because they usually ship their bombs more covertly.

Israel had just put out an S.O.S. to the United States government to rush over several more bombs. "The decision to quickly ship the weapons to Israel was made with relatively little debate within the Bush administration," according to the New York Times. Although always well-equipped with sophisticated US- made weapons, Israel was evidently running out of munitions to drop on the Lebanese people.This article by Marjorie Cohen identifies U.S. weapons passing through SD on their way to Israel's invasion of Lebanon. Protest!

La llibertat d'expressió i la independència dels mitjans de comunicació respecte el poder dels governs i de les institucions és imprescindible per tal de que les persones rebin la informació adequada i visquin plenament en una societat democràtica. Cada vegada més, Governs, partits i institucions pressionen els mitjans i les persones que hi treballen per tal que s'emetin informacions parcials, propagandístiques, i fins i tot desinformadores, segons els seus interessos electorals, econòmics, de prestigi o propagandístics. Qui ostenta el poder polític pressiona els mitjans, però això no sempre els acaba sortint bé, sobretot si les pressions i desinformacions acaben sortint a la llum com passa gràcies a la publicació oberta, lliure i alternativa d'alguns mitjans, al periodisme d'investigació i als mitjans i professionals que mantenen la seva independència tot i els entrebancs. Per sort, encara n'hi ha molts i cada vegada en sorgenixen de nous.

DA Dumanis Lies About Law

San Diego, 29.07.2006 19:38

Raids on July 6 targeted 11 San Diego cannabis dispensaries. Owners of some of the dispensaries not raided that day were heard to say that they were spared because they were running proper establishments. As if the DEA made such distinctions! On July 21 the remaining clubs were visited by law enforcement and told to close or else. They have all complied.

San Diego District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis is taking the position that all sales of marijuana are illegal -despite several court rulings to the contrary and the wording of the Health & Safety Code as modified by Senate Bill 420 and the appellate court ruling in People v. Urziceanu.

The article the Sierra Club doesn't want you to read

Portland, 29.07.2006 09:38

Big environmental organizations like ONRC, Sierra Club and OLCV will barely acknowledge Joe Keating, Pacific Green Party candidate for Governor, despite being a former chair of the Sierra Club and 19 years of environmental activism in Oregon. These groups care more about money, fiefdom, and political access than they care about the environment.

At this moment in time the Sierra Club, Oregon Natural Resources Council (ONRC), and Oregon League of Conservation Voters (OLCV) have all endorsed the Democratic incumbent. The Oregon Environmental Council (OEC) will hold a gubernatorial debate in September with Kulongoski, Saxton, and Westlund and plans to exclude Joe Keating, the green candidate.

Oceanic Dead Zones off Oregon, Five Years Running Now...&quot;You can smell it.&quot;

Portland, 29.07.2006 03:38

Oregon has decided to join Louisiana in having its own "dead zone." This one may or may not be human caused. It's not from river effluent like the one in the Gulf of Mexico, but is instead from the welling up of deep water that is lacking in oxygen. Why this water is coming up from the depths remains the subject of study. Regardless, if you get enough dead zones in the oceans, then one day the ocean will be...dead. Reports of massive dead Dungeness crab currently range from Oregon's central coast to well into Washington.

As for the many human connected versions, there is no excuse for this. The below article describes only the "natural" (huge assumption) one when the massive amounts of dead zones around the world particularly around the U.S. littoral are linked back to overuse of phosphorous and nitrate fertilizers that get washed out by rivers into the sea. There it causes high level plankton/algal blooms well beyond their ecological balance. Like making alcohol, the little buggers breed at a superfast rate then die then as they decompose on the ocean floor they suck up all the oxygen at a much expanded rate, creating a widening "hypoxic" zone, killing everything in its path ... I'm hardly surprised that the corporate piece below ignores that dead zones are human creations as much as the upwelling ones he cites!
