Platz da! Wagenplätze, Schul- und Kulturprojekte bleiben!

Switzerland, 20.08.2006 19:37

Seit einiger Zeit gibt es in Bern gleich 4 Wagenplätze und seit kurzem sind 2 davon (Verein Alternative und Stadttauben) auf neuer Standort suche. Doch auch das seit 21 Jahren bestehende Zaffaraya muss, wie die beiden anderen, den Neufeld-Tunnel Bauarbeiten weichen. Die Stadt Bern will jedoch nur das Zaffaraya aufgrund seines langen Bestehens als Verhandlungspartnerin akzeptieren und an einer möglichen Standortsuche mithelfen, die anderen beiden Wagenplätze werden von ihren Standorten vertrieben und man ist nicht bereit ihnen Plätze zur Verfügung zu stellen. Sie sollen schlichtweg einfach so verschwinden.
Ebenso sieht sich die autonome Schule denk:mal, sowie das Kulturprojekt Paradisli einer geplanten Überbaung für Wohnhäuser höheren Standarts gegenüber, welche das Ende dieser beiden Projekte bedeuten würde. Gegenüber den zwei eingeben Baugesuchen wurde jetzt von der Grünen Partei Bern Einsprache erhoben.

Starbucks Adds Rats in the Cupboards to Rats in the Boardroom

San Diego, 20.08.2006 12:38

(with apologies to rats for comparing them to corporate monsters)

The primary role of Starbucks in society seems to be to destroy local businesses and exploit workers in this country and others in the pursuit of obscene profits.

Starbucks serves milk containing genetically engineered recombinant bovine growth hormone, a danger to dairy cow and human health, and only a tiny percentage of their coffee, 3,7%, is fair trade.

Starbucks is strongly anti-union, squashing workers' rights by intimidating and firing union organizers for the nascent International Workers of the World Starbucks Workers Union, including the recent termination of IWW barista Daniel Gross. The IWW filed a complaint with OSHA over unsafe working conditions associated with rats and roaches at 44 NYC Sbux outlets.

Starbucks attacks local businesses with buy-outs, "cluster bombing" tactics, and market cannibalization. Starbucks outlets recently opened across from popular local businesses in two central San Diego locations: Urban Grind in Hillcrest and Claire de Lune in North Park. The Ocean Beach Grassroots Organization has been fighting Starbucks and other chain stores for years.

The Starbucks website lists over 200 stores in San Diego County.

I think you know what to do.

Jeff Free Luers - Update and Dispatch from Prison

Portland, 20.08.2006 10:38

Thank you all so much for the letters and books you have sent me in recent days. I know right now there's a bit of confusion about why I'm in the hole. I'd been hoping to know more myself before writing about it. However, that hasn't happened. So here is what has happened and what I know:

The whole thing started in mid-June when my neighbors got caught in their cell with a joint. The next day they took the wrong neighbors to the hole! Realizing their mistake a few days later they let the innocent party out of the hole and UA'd my tier.

One week later on June 30 I was called down to give a UA based on a phone conversation I'd had. I complied thinking it was just more of the same goings on as the week before.



Kevin Zeese: Attack on Iran May Lead to WWIII!

Portland, 20.08.2006 10:38

Takoma, Maryland's City Hall was the scene for a lively discussion on Middle East issues, on Aug. 17, 2006. Kevin Zeese, the "Unity candidate" for the U.S. Senate in Maryland, and one of the panelists, said Israel's attack on Lebanon was premeditated and that an attack on Iran might lead to WWIII. Noura Erakat said Lebanon had been devastated 'on a humanitarian level" by Israel's War Machine. She also denounced Israel as an "Apartheid state."

Kevin Zeese got right to it in his opening remarks at a Forum, entitled, "Independent Solutions for the Middle East Crisis." It was held in the town's City Hall on Thursday evening, Aug. 17, 2006, in the Council Chambers. Zeese said: "The dividing line between peace candidates and pro war candidates is no longer opposition to the Iraq War. It is whether they oppose the premeditated destruction of Lebanon and a military attack on Iran."



Oak Grove Protest

Portland, 20.08.2006 10:38

This was our first time going to the Oak Grove "guerilla" protests ...and how cool it was ! There were maybe a dozen or so of us , and what blew us away was the OVERWHELMING positive responses ! There was hardly five seconds that went by without horns honking and thumbs up , and people THANKING us for being there ! We got a few one-finger salutes and one guy called us "Commie Bastards" but we would say 98% of the responses were supportive ! This is where it's at, folks ...we need to bring this home , to the streets , to the malls...we need to act , and act now. We may be days away from a nuclear strike on Iran and the end of the world as we know it. Am we "tripping" ? We hope so...We hope we are totally wrong about the intentions of this government , but right now , action is what is needed. Rock on !

Den Mark adds: Same response in Vancouver from the public. Mostly positive, with a few loud negatives, loud because those few feel increasingly isolated. We who demand justice & peace are NOT going away!

Lew adds: I saw folks here from far flung, small town America. These are the folks the war mongers fear most, because they cannot be counted as a group, and a very small number can affect the outcome in remote precincts that are harder for them to manipulate. A very powerful "in your face, chimp!" from wee little Scott's Mills, and from Colton, and from Bumfuq, and beyond. Thank you all for being there.

Week-long Hunger Strike for Former DPW Workers

San Francisco Bay Area, 20.08.2006 06:38

About two years ago, the City and County of San Francisco, and specifically Mayor Newsom, instructed the Department of Public Works (DPW) to establish a new category of laborers to clean city streets. DPW then fired dozens of San Francisco workers, and hired new workers at half the wage. Many of the workers were reinstated, but 11 of them still don't have their jobs back. The laid-off workers and their allies will be holding a week-long hunger strike in front of SF City Hall, beginning Monday, August 21st at 8am, and ending on August 25th at 5:00pm. They will hold a press conference on August 21st at 10am on the front steps of City Hall.

El proyecto de Acondicionamiento del entorno de la Parroquia de San Francisco Javier, en Hoya de la Plata, Las Palmas, es otra de las obras del Plan de Barrios que la alcaldesa Luzardo activó tiempo ha. En el presente forma parte del setup electoral del PP capitalino.

La actuación en Hoya de la Plata contempla un local social, una caja de zapatos de 150 irrisorios m2 que reemplazará a los 3 grandes laureles de indias que desde 35 años atrás han ido configurando la identidad de este barrio y han servido como cobijo del sol y tradicional lugar de reunión.

El pasado jueves 10 de Agosto, lxs vecinxs se reunieron desde primeras horas de la mañana en torno a estos grandes observadores de la historia del barrio para impedir que los arrancaran.

"Son nuestra vida –decía un señor ya entrado en canas. Este ha sido un lugar de reunión para nuestra gente. Aquí, al aire libre, debajo de la sombra de estos árboles nos hemos juntado viejos y jóvenes durante muchos años a tomar la fresca y a 'paliquiar'. Es nuestra vida… y tenemos que defenderla".

Tras horas de concentración contra la operación municipal, apareció el GOIA –ese grupo de asalto a las órdenes directas de Luzardo– para agilizar la tarea de los operarios municipales.

- "De repente llegaron unas furgonetas de las que salieron en tumulto unos hombres que parecían robots."
- "O se quitan de aquí o los quitamos nosotros"

La represión fue brutal y contra todo quisqui, acabando con 4 detenidos, varixs lesionadxs y las habituales denuncias por agresión a la policía (ya lo decía Def Con Dos: golpeo tus nudillos con mis morros).

As Lebanon War Waged, Life Became Harder In Occupied Territories

San Francisco Bay Area, 19.08.2006 23:38

On the back of Israel's military defeat in Lebanon, Palestinians fear that their blood will be used to bolster public confidence in Olmert's government. The Israeli military offensive in Gaza continued unabated during the conflict in Lebanon but was practically unmonitored by the world's media. With the exception of the United Nations registering grave concerns over the deteriorating humanitarian conditions and the continued violence against Palestinian civilians and infrastructure, it seems that the Palestinians have been forgotten. 170 Palestinians including, 138 civilians, 14 security officers and 15 militants, were killed in Israeli attacks from June 27th until August 8th 2006. During that same period, Israeli F-16s and helicopters launched 190 air strikes, the Israeli military fired over 3,500 artillery shells, the Israeli Air Force carried out 380 air patrols and 506 Palestinians were injured.

Rebuilding, Unexploded Bombs &amp; Environmental Destruction

San Francisco Bay Area, 19.08.2006 22:38

Hundreds of thousands of Lebanese have returned to the remains of their homes in the South of the country. Rebuilding started the day the ceasefire started with Hizbullah playing a major role, clearing roads and helping to dig out survivors and the dead from collapsed buildings. Hizbullah's leader, Hassan Nasrallah has promised a year's rent and a set of new furniture for every family whose house has been destroyed in the fighting. With billions of dollars worth of damages, NGOs and Western governments have been much slower in their response; the US has only promised $50 million and an international donors' conference in Stockholm isn't scheduled until August 31st.
US Counters Hizbullah Rebuilding | Hizbullah revs up Aid to Victims

One major challenge facing returning Lebanese are unexploded bombs. During the month of hostilities, Israel dropped thousands of US made munitions including many cluster bombs. Cluster bombs are air-dropped or ground launched shells that eject multiple small submunitions. Submunitions are classified as either bomblets, grenades, or mines. They are small explosive-filled or chemical-filled items designed for saturation coverage of a large area. ...Each of these delivery systems disperses its payload of submunitions while still in flight, and the submunitions drop over the target. Human Rights Watch opposes all use of cluster munitions with high initial failure rates, including the weapons that Israel used in Lebanon, because of the prolonged danger they pose to civilians. In Southern Lebanon, thousands of unexploded bomblets have turned some areas into virtual minefields, and there are already reports of death from cluster bombs among returning refugees.

In Beirut and along the Lebanese coast, the war has left both the water and air in poor shape. Chemicals and dust from the buildings hit during Israeli air strikes have badly polluted the air and land in S Beirut. Along the coast Lebanese volunteers have started to clean oil-stained beaches. Nearly 15,000 tons of heavy fuel oil spilled onto Lebanon's coast after Israel bombed Jiyyeh power station,50 kilometers south of Beirut, causing the biggest ecological crisis in the country's history.

Student fingerprinting - not so VeriCool

United Kingdom, 19.08.2006 04:26

The plans for the introduction of national ID cards may have been watered down somewhat, but the spectre of a future where everyone's every movement and purchase can be tracked by biometric data looms ever larger. One, at first glance unexpected front where this dystopia is already rearing its ugly head is in our schools. Several companies, with VeriCool the current front runner, are aggressively marketing fingerprinting solutions – solutions to what is not exactly clear as we'll see – to primary and secondary schools, as well as libraries. Before outlining some of the dangers of the system (for a more complete overview see LeaveThemKidsAlone, I will look at one particular case, Impington Village College (IVC) on the outskirts of Cambridge.

In the beginning of this academic year, IVC introduced a new fingerprinting system, which is used to register students at the beginning of each lesson, and that has replaced borrowing cards in the library and money in the school's canteen. This is how it works, at least in theory: before the start of each lesson the teacher logs onto the system with her own fingerprint, and the students register by pressing their thumbs against the plexiglass of a small scanner (with the exception of the Year Eights, who get to give the system the middle finger). A beep signals that a thumbprint has been recognized. Any unauthorized absenteeism is automatically flagged and available to the school office. VeriCool, the makers of the system, claim that taking a register is quicker, the results are immediately available, and that this is a useful weapon in the fight against truancy. The operative word here is 'weapon', but more about that later. When it's time for lunch, the students pay for their food by the same mechanism, and their accounts are debited. This is meant to prevent children being bullied out of their lunch money...



Aug 19-27: Lt. Watada's father Bob Watada in Bay Area

Bob Watada will be on a West Coast speaking tour in support of his son, Lt. Ehren Watada, from August 19th through 27th. On the tour, he will: speak out about why his son refuses to participate in the illegal invasion and occupation of Iraq; build support for his son as he faces military court- martial proceedings; and raise funds for his son's legal defense. Lt. Ehren Watada is the first commissioned U.S. military officer to publicly refuse orders in support of the Iraq War. A military pre-trial hearing took place on August 17-18, and the actual court-martial will likely be 6 to 12 weeks later.

A federal judge in Detroit ruled on August 17th that the Bush administration's warrantless surveillance program is unconstitutional and must be stopped. President Bush secretly authorized the National Security Agency program in 2001, and it was revealed in the media last year. U.S. District Judge Anna Diggs Taylor found that the program violated freedom of speech, protections against unreasonable searches and a constitutional check on the power of the presidency. The Justice Department has appealed the decision and a hearing is set for September 7th. The ruling is on hold pending the appeal.

Local immigrants' rights activist faces deportation; turns to refuge in church

Chicago, 18.08.2006 17:09

Elvira Arellano, a Chicago-area activist for immigrants' rights, noted for her organizing as president of La Familia Latina Unida and for her actions in a 2006 hunger strike, has sought sanctuary in the face of an imminent threat of deportation to Mexico.

Arellano's activism specifically addresses the rights of families to remain together in the face of differing immigration and citizenship privileges. Ironically, Arellano currently faces the threat of seeing her own family separated, as she may be forced to leave behind her seven-year-old son.

Arellano is seeking sanctuary at Chicago's Adalberto United Methodist Church noted for its ongoing activism for immigrants rights and its specific support in Arellano's case.

Camp Suzanne

Portland, 18.08.2006 10:38

Fort Lewis, WA -- On Thursday, August 17th 2006, The Swift Action Network began "Camp Suzanne" outside Fort Lewis in Washington State, in honor of active duty soldier Spc. Suzanne Swift. The organizers' stated goals are to bring attention to the epidemic of sexual assault in the military, and to show support for Suzanne Swift. They have demanded an honorable discharge and medical care for life for Spc. Swift.

During her deployment in Iraq, Swift was sexually harassed repeatedly by two of her Sergeants there. She was the victim of "command rape," which is rape by a superior officer under the threat of punitive action. The harassment continued even after their return to Fort Lewis. The situation culminated when, within a month of her return, she asked her superior where she should report the next morning, to which her superior, the third perpetrator, responded "In my bed, naked."

By The Light of a Burning Bridge

Portland, 18.08.2006 10:38

It was about a week before I left the United States forever that I watched Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. tell Charlie Rose something all of us already know in our hearts. "Today," he said, "the United States is hated around the world far worse than it was at the height of the Vietnam War." I remember the Vietnam War. I will never forget it.

I opposed that war, and I still remember riots on the UCLA campus in May,1970 when four students were shot dead by National Guard troops at Kent State University in Ohio. I was a college student then, and I was 2S-deferred for the draft. A year later I would be re-classified 1A as the nation shifted to a lottery system. At least someone in my country was willing to risk his life in the face of injustice. It gave me hope. That kind of risk-taking was commonplace then, from the civil rights movement to the anti-war movement, to the American Indian Movement. American blood was shed regularly on American soil to resist American tyranny; from Watts, to Detroit, to Selma, to San Francisco to Memphis to Wounded Knee. It fertilized our lives and souls as it touched the ground. The willingness to endure physical suffering, material sacrifice, and jail for the sake of justice was a singular mark of the American character that earned respect as it infected the world.

What is the United States infecting the world with today?



Profumo di rivoluzione a Oaxaca

Switzerland, 18.08.2006 09:37

A Oaxaca, secondo diversi osservatori indipendenti, sta avvenendo una vera e propria rivoluzione che vede contrapposti il governatore di questo stato messicano, Ulises Ruiz e l'Associazione popolare del popolo di Oaxaca (Appo) in un conflitto aperto.
Il nuovo ciclo repressivo a Oaxaca, che ha una lunga tradizione in questo senso, è cominciato il 14 giugno quando gendarmi locali assaltarono il presidio permanente dei maestri installato nel centro della capitale dello stato.
Da allora le tensioni non hanno fatto altro che salire, dopo il brutale attacco poliziesco ad una manifestazione di maestri nel mese di luglio.
L'Appo occupa 4 radio e 4 tv locali, oltre a 30 municipi e 20 palazzi governativi, dalle quali informa costantemente sull'evoluzione dei fatti.

Insieme all'ingovernabilità dello stato è emersa una grave crisi dei diritti umani: assassinio di cittadini che protestavano con intervento di sicari e di poliziotti vestiti da civili, spari contro giornali e stazioni radio indipendenti, sequestro e tortura di dirigenti sociali da parte di brigate paramilitari, minacce di morte, centri di detenzione clandestini, incendio di autobus da gruppi di picchiatori legati alle autorità priíste locali e detenzione arbitraria senza mandati di cattura di leader popolari sono alcune delle aggressioni commesse contro il movimento civile che chiede le dimissioni del governatore dello stato.
Ultimo tragico episodio repressivo, l'11 agosto: attaccata una manifestazione da un commando armato.
