BMIMC Exclusive -- Ashcroft to Release New Hit <i>Biometric Control Waltz</i>

Big Muddy, 22.08.2006 20:08

#media_1157;left# The news from the Heartland is that the former Senator and U.S. Attorney General has been hard at work on another major musical breakthrough. He is once again taking advantage of those glorious vocal chords with which the creator blessed him. Additionally, the man from Missouri has some truly intriguing things to say about what is really going on in our Capital City.

John Ashcroft will be releasing a new song, which is destined to fly higher than his last. This latest Ashcroft offering is to be titled Biometric Control Waltz or simply Biometric Waltz. According to John, he was inspired to pen this ditty upon learning of his former boss’s announcement of the intended use of biometric employee id cards for temporary workers. Upon the realization that this would mean that all citizens would soon need to have biometric cards, John was ecstatic. Mr. Ashcroft says that his former boss will be joining a group headed by Jack Abramoff, Duke Cunningham, William Jefferson, and Scooter Libby that will produce biometric identity cards and readers for the government. These National Identity Cards, which will be necessary for employment and National Security, will offer full auditability every time an individual transacts with the system as well as the management of identities throughout their life cycle. Governments do have a requirement to implement accurate authentication for all citizens and employees in their countries utilizing systems independently assessed and proven able to handle large population groups using multiple methods of authentication. As Mr. Ashcroft so aptly put it, fear of immigration will allow our government once again to foist an unnecessary control technique upon our citizenry especially when fear of terrorism is engendered by it. John’s new release, sampled below, will be available upon passage of immigration reform mandating biometric identity cards.

Student Constituency Bodies May Lose Power to Allocate Student Activity Fee

Big Muddy, 22.08.2006 20:08

#media_1173;left#In an underhanded maneuver by Student Development Director, Katie Sermersheim, the Undergraduate Student Government and Graduate and Professional Student Council may lose their power to allocate the more than $300,000 Student Activity Fee to the over 400 Registered Student Organizations on campus. On Tuesday, June 13, the DE reported that Sermersheim has presented a plan to Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs Larry Dietz outlining the creation of a Student Activity Fee Allocation Board that could potentially come into permanent command of student activity funds if it is approved by Deitz. This proposal comes on the heels of both in and out of house editorial tirades in the Daily Egyptian regarding the delay in resolving allocations for two whole meetings near the end of the spring 2006 semester.

government, centuries of racism, and an ever more chaotic global climate.

A strong scientific consensus agrees that the 2005 hurricane season was fueled by global warming -- and the crimes of the oil industry in the Gulf go beyond global warming. Ride Critical Mass Against Climate Change - demand Climate Justice - for Hurricane Katrina's survivors! Portland will be joining 26 other cities - see the complete list.

The goal of this ride is to take to the streets with a reminder that the racist tragedy in the Gulf continues, a demand that it never be repeated, and to raise awareness about the role of the oil industry and global warming in environmental injustice. We'll also be fundraising at rides around the continent for advocacy and relief groups in New Orleans.

Revuelta popular en Oaxaca

El estado de Oaxaca, especialmente la ciudad de Oaxaca, continua en pie de guerra en un conflicto que lleva ya 3 meses. Lo que empezó siendo una lucha magisterial para pedir mejoras laborales, ha acabado covirtiéndose, desde el intento de desalojo del plantón del zócalo el 14 de junio, en una lucha popular generalizada contra el gobernador del PRI de Oaxaca Ulises Ruiz y todo su gabinete de gobierno.

La represión ejercida durante el intento de desalojo fue sanguinaria y también fue una de las causas de la implicación de muchas más organizaciones sociales, colectivos y individuos que ayudaron con la resistencia al desalojo y con la recuperación de ese espacio ocupado y de muchos otros nuevos.

Actualmente la situación continua siendo muy crítica y se ha detectado un aumento en las prácticas represivas por parte del gobierno de Ulises Ruiz con diversos muertos, desaparecidos y detenidos, y una deriva de algunos sectores hacia posiciones más institucionalizadas.

Incendi al Centre Social Okupat Pepica la Pilona

Valencia, 22.08.2006 11:07

El passat diumenge 13 d'agost, entre les 7 i les 9 del matí, es va declarar un incendi al Centre Social Okupat més antic de la ciutat de València, que la destruït per complet. El C.S.O. Pepica la Pilona anava a complir 10 anys el mes que ve, sent un referent de la lluita social al Cabanyal i a la resta de València.
Tots els indicis apunten a que ha sigut intencionat, el foc a començat per l'única finestra de la planta baixa i previament li havien llevat el tabló d'anuncis que la bloquejava i segons fonts del cos de bombers, a primera vista, podria haver un segón focus de flames a la part de darrere.

Ací podreu veure les fotos de com ha quedat el CSO La Pilona després de l'incendi

Aquest estiu hem patit més agressions:
Es fan ressó de la campanya contra el concert Nazi
L'entramat empresarial i de propaganda neonazi
Noves agressions feixistes a Guadalajara
Alerta: Pròxim concert nazi
Maulets denuncia pintades nazis a Torrent
Agressió feixista en la nit dels focs de Xixón
La voluntat contra els nazis

Incendio en el Centro Social Okupado Pepica la Pilona

Valencia, 22.08.2006 11:07

El pasado domingo 13 de agosto, entre las 7 y las 9 de la mañana, se declaró un incendio en el Centro Social Okupado más antiguo de la ciudad de Valencia, que lo ha destruído por completo. El C.S.O Pepica la Pilona iba a cumplir 10 años el mes que viene, siendo un referente de la lucha social en el Cabañal y en el resto de Valencia.
Todos los indicios apuntan a que ha sido intencionado, el fuego ha empezado por la única ventana de la planta baja y previamente la habían quitado el tablón de anuncios que la bloqueaba y según fuentes del cuerpo de bomberos, a primera vista, podría haber un segundo foco de llamas en la parte trasera.

Aqui podreis ver las fotos de como ha quedado el CSO La Pilona después del incendio

Este verano hemos sufrido más agresiones:
Se hacen eco de la campaña contra el concierto Nazi
El entramado empresarial y de propaganda nazi
Nuevas agresiones fascistas en Guadalajara

No dogs in farmers market?

Portland, 22.08.2006 10:38

This is a heads up for anyone who is making the Farmer's Market rounds during this time of year. If you have a dog, do not go to the Oregon City Farmers' Market. Dogs are not allowed. We live out in the foothills, and were in Oregon City last Saturday, so thought we would go see what produce might be offered in the market. We have a small dog, weighing only 22 pounds. He is well behaved, was on a leash of course, and we carried a plastic bag in plain view so anyone could see that we were ready to take responsibility for anything that might happen. It was a very hot day, so there was no question about leaving the dog in the car. Happily looking at the lovely flowers and fresh vegetables, we were having a good time when an 'official person' with a shirt on which "OCSM" was stenciled, told us that we would have to get out. It is an open air market in a public parking lot near the County Administration Offices (of Fouad Kaady demonstration fame). I think it is totally unreasonable to bar leashed and mannerly dogs from an open air market.

Immigrants &amp; Refugees in Portland: Sharing Our Dreams

Portland, 22.08.2006 05:08

Portland is a different city than it was 10 years ago. Today, one out of every eight residents in the greater Portland Tri-County area is foreign-born, and in some East Portland neighborhoods, immigrants represent one out of every three residents. So, what kind of city will Portland be in the future? How can Portland ensure that all residents have a voice, regardless of their country of origin or immigration status? How can Portland create an environment in which immigrants and refugees are recognized and supported as valued residents of our city?

On Saturday, August 19, immigrants and refugees from diverse communities across Portland gathered in City Hall to begin answering these questions. Individuals from the African, Latino, Asian/Pacific Islander, Slavic and Arab communities showed up to testify about their respective issues and to share their dreams. The forum represented the culmination of a three-month-long grassroots organizing effort facilitated by the Center for Intercultural Organizing and led by Bridgetown Voices, a cross-cultural immigrant and refugee collaboration.

Katrina Volunteers depart to Lebanon

United States, 21.08.2006 18:07

A number of Katrina volunteers who organized the Common Ground collective have organized into a new organization named “Critical Response” in order to provide emergency response to disasters, both natural and human-made. Critical Response is working to send a rescue and relief team into Southern Lebanon to assist with humanitarian aid efforts. The Critical Response team will go into areas that are not currently being served adequately by relief organizations due to the high risks involved. As was the case in New Orleans, innocent civilians in Southern Lebanon are being sentenced to death through delayed relief efforts. Critical Response is asking for ideas and help by networking from people of conscience. Critical Response | Common Ground Collective | Indymedia Global coverage of crisis: 1, 2, 3, 4

Creative Chaos: Review of &quot;Graffiti&quot; at the Brooklyn Musuem

NYC, 21.08.2006 16:08

Yesterday I went to the Brooklyn Museum to check out the "Graffiti "show. As a child of the 1980s, I remember vividly the aerosol chaos that covered the CC train that my brother and I took on our way to school in the Bronx. Those were crazy times, where the ground of the city was shifting under our feet. Crack cocaine devastated our community and kids were worried about getting AIDS from water fountains. Violence was the norm and so was poverty as I made quick friends on the free cheese line at the Polo Grounds community center. [Read More]

Entscheid im Fall Erdogan vorerst negativ!

Switzerland, 21.08.2006 11:07

Die Bundesbehörden haben im Fall Erdogan E. einen Entscheid gefällt. Er ist negativ, wird in letzter Instanz indes vom Bundesgericht entschieden, da es sich um einen politischen Fall handelt. Gegen dieses Spezialvorgehen protestiert das Bündnis gegen Ausschaffungen und Auslieferungen in die Türkei vehement. Offensichtlich sind die schweizerischen Behörden gewillt, Erdogan in eine ungewisse Zukunft in einen Folterstaat auszuliefern. Das Bündnis hält jedoch fest, dass der Entscheid noch kein endgültiger ist. Es wird nun zum Endspurt angesetzt und das Bündnis geht nach wie vor davon aus, dass Erdogans Auslieferung verhindert werden kann und muss.

Am 18.8.06 hat das Bündnis erfahren, dass Erdogan nach Frauenfeld verlegt wurde - die fünfte Verlegung innerhalb von 6 Monaten. Die Demonstration für den 19.8. wurde deswegen kurzfristig umdisponiert und in Frauenfeld sollte eine Spontankundgebung stattfinden. Dort wurden die DemonstrantInnen aber nicht einmal aus dem Zug gelassen, sondern gleich von einem Grossaufgebot der Polizei empfangen. 1 Bereits auf der Anreise wurden mehrere AktivistInnen am Bahnhof in Zürich brutal verhaftet. Am Abend fanden dann weiter Demonstrationen in Bern und Zürich statt. 1

Für kommende Woche sind weitere Demonstrationen in Basel und Bern geplant. Das Bündnis ruft zur zahlreichen Teilnahme und Solidarität auf!

Ethiopa Sends Troops Into Somalia As US Backed Governments Nears Collapse

San Francisco Bay Area, 21.08.2006 00:08

The current war in Somalia is a portion of the US global "War on Terror" that has gotten very little coverage in the US media. A regional war looks likely in East Africa as Ethiopia is sending more troops into Somalia to back the "official" government in Baidoa while Eritrea appears to be supplying arms to the Islamic Courts Unions which controls Mogadishu and much of the rest of the country (outside of the independent regions of Somaliland and Puntland). Baidoa and the Islamic Courts had agreed to recognize each other under a deal brokered by the Arab League, but the Courts withdrew from talks on July 22nd in protest at Ethiopian intervention. Tensions have risen between the two sides since the Islamic Courts defeated the US-led warlord Alliance for the Restoration of Peace and Counter-Terrorism and seized full control of the capital Mogadishu in June. Many cabinet ministers in the Baidoan government have resigned amid mounting criticism over the deployment of Ethiopian troops inside Somalia.

Food Not Bombs Protests Anti-Homeless Law

United States, 20.08.2006 22:07

LAS VEGAS, NV --"The Friendly City", Sin City, whichever you prefer, Las Vegas on July 19th, 2006 passed the first U.S. ordinance to explicitly make sharing food with the poor a crime. In this city where millions of dollars a year are spent on demolishing perfectly intact lodging, people are now criminalized for sharing food. Although many cities have enacted laws that surreptitiously prevent the "indigent" from congregating in the public eye, this is the first time that a city has blatantly codified and enforced open class discrimination against the poor. Never before has the sharing of basic survival necessities, such as food and water, with human beings of a perceived socioeconomic class been so specifically legally enshrined as a criminal act.
