Dozens of Cities Participate in &quot;Critical Mass&quot; Solidarity Ride on the Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina

United States, 26.08.2006 14:07

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.

On Friday, August 25th -- one year from the day Katrina reached hurricane strength and slammed into the coast of Florida -- cyclists from at least 28 cities around the country participated in a solidarity bike ride with Katrina survivors. Their goal was to remind folks that the racist tragedy in the Gulf continues, to demand that it never be repeated, and to raise awareness about the role of the oil industry and global warming in environmental injustice.

"Critical Mass" is a celebration of bike culture, a meaningful alternative to car culture and greenhouse gas generating fossil fuels. It takes place wherever there is energy, often on the last Friday of the month.

Cutbacks, suspensions, redundancies - Corporations wage class warfare

Aotearoa, 26.08.2006 13:09

#media_7649;left#Multinational corporations in collusion with the Labour government are waging vicious class warfare on workers in Aotearoa. The last month has seen an escalation of worker struggle against anti-union and pro-corporate policies that threaten our jobs, communities and environment. The aggressive strategies being pursued by corporate elites in our deregulated market economy mirror the global picture of a dog-eat-dog capitalism that if left unchecked will see a continuing rise in wealth for the priviledged few while the rest of us get poorer. Although the National Party’s 90-days-with-no-rights bill looks set to fail the struggle is not over. Workers rights are still under attack. Now is the time for workers and unions to stand up and fight back. Global shipping corporate Maersk is preparing to reduce the number of ports its ships visit in Aotearoa from nine to only five. Maritime Union General Secretary Trevor Hanson asked, “Has NZ arrived at the position where overseas companies can hold NZ Ports, NZ citizens, regions, businesses, farmers, importers and exporters to ransom?” [Media Release] The Progressive supermarket distribution center strike looks set to continue after the Australian owned company suspended fifty workers in Palmerston North. National Distribution Union advocate Stan Renwick said that the strike might have to be extended. “If Progressive are going to escalate the dispute by suspending our members, we will have to consider a further escalation as a possible response,” he said. While the Australian company makes massive profits it uses fear and intimidation against its workers. [Media Release] #media_7643;left# After making 900 workers redundant already this year state owned airline Air New Zealand is preparing again to outsource up to 160 jobs in it’s finance department to the global south, most likely to Fiji, where it won’t have to pay a living wage. The Service and Food Workers Union Nga Ringa Tota Northern Secretary Jill Ovens said of the move, "They seem to be modelling themselves on multi-national corporations where highly paid corporate managers simply manage third-party contracts in Third World countries, rather than employ their own employees," she says. Nga Ringa Tota are planning a public campaign to save the jobs. [Media Release] #media_7636;right# “This struggle is about more than one worker and his job. This struggle goes to the heart of whether workers at multinational retailers like Wal-Mart, McDonald's, and Starbucks can exercise their right to free association or are destined to languish as subjects of their employers,” commented Unite! Union organiser Tom Buckley on why union organiser Daniel Gross at a Starbucks in New York, “doesn't deserve to be fired for taking a stand in solidarity with his co-worker and fellow union members”. Unite continues to struggle with anti-union practices at McDonalds and Sky City where workers were threatened by management because of their participation in the August 23 Work Rights rally.

'What is This World Coming To?': Lesbians Retaliate After Sexual Harassment

NYC, 25.08.2006 23:08

On August 19, 2006 at 2 a.m. seven lesbians in the West Village responded to sexual harassment, and consequently a hate crime, by attacking him. According to recent coverage that blatantly contained as little inclusion of the women’s explanation as possible, a bootlegger crudely attempted at picking up one of the women, an action he describes as gentlemanly, to which she responded that she was a lesbian. He retorted with a bitter hateful expression, one that the media has not divulged, a mordant threat to fuck them all, and consequently flicked a lit cigarette in their direction, which burned one of them. Supposedly, these events solely led at least four of the women to pummel him with belts, and, ultimately, stab him. Currently, the women, whose ages have been recorded as ranging from 14-31 and 18-31, are being held at Riker’s Island on $50,000 bail/$150,000 bond on charges of assault, gang assault, attempted murder, and a hate crime.



Sacramento's Maloof Tax

San Francisco Bay Area, 25.08.2006 21:38

Massive citizen mobilization is needed to respond to the limitations government has done to address social ills. On Nov. 7 voters need to respond to the greed that drives the real reason behind the 'Maloof tax'. The 'Maloof tax' is a public subsidy to build a new basketball arena and an associated advisory referendum that will come before voters. The Maloof family owns Sacramento's Arco Arena, where the NBA Kings and WNBA Monarchs play.

The Maloofs, of course, have the capital to build the new arena, but they want Sacramento County taxpayers to help them bear that cost.

Bristol, 25.08.2006 18:38

summary cps writes: 2 petitions with almost 7,000 signatures opposing the development of the most heavily used part of castle park were handed to bristol city council several weeks ago. The campaign continues at www.savecastlepark.co.uk. A park users group has formed to establish who uses the park and what the public want to happen there. contact email: click here. Over 500 questionaires were filled in over 5 days. not a single person wants the park to change. As major development encourages more people to live and work in the centre of the city, this rare piece of green space is an increasingly valueable amenity. It is also where the city began so is an important historical site and where hundreds diedi in the last war so many see it as a park of remembrance.

Close Down Dallas Court

United Kingdom, 25.08.2006 13:09

On 18 August 2006, asylum seekers and anti-racist campaigners gathered outside Dallas Court Reporting Centre in Salford Quays, to protest against the treatment of asylum seekers and the continued practice of detaining people at Dallas Court, including the recent detention and transfer to Campsfield of Jean Lobouka from Congo (Brazzaville).

Many asylum seekers are forced to 'report' at Dallas Court every day, week or month, some from as far away as Bolton and Northwich. Many have no cash to pay for travel, as they are not allowed to work and the only support they have are ASDA electronic vouchers. They are subject to arrest and detention, and removal of food and accomodation if they refuse. When complying with their immigration service restrictions, some are unexpectedly arrested, seized and taken to prisons or 'detention centres'.

FDA Makes Emergency Contraception Available Over the Counter

San Francisco Bay Area, 25.08.2006 09:39

On August 24th, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced its decision to allow Plan B, the emergency contraceptive (EC) manufactured by Barr Pharmaceuticals, to be sold without prescription (over-the-counter) to women age 18 and older who show proof of age. National women's organizations are calling this an "an incomplete victory" because it does not include young women aged 17 and younger. EC contains the same medication found in birth control pills, which have been used by millions of women for decades.

Get Free Shit from Anti-Queer Group Focus on the Family

San Diego, 25.08.2006 08:08

When I'm feeling despondent over the state of gay rights in America - or the concurrent assaults on reproductive freedom, science, and rational thought there's just one thing that helps me overcome my feelings of despair: getting free shit from Focus on the Family!

Few people know that Focus on the Family, the powerful evangelical Christian para-church based in Colorado Springs, will give you, absolutely free of charge, books, CDs, and DVDs. Usually people pay for these products, and the millions of dollars raised helps Focus on the Family produce yet more books and CDs featuring Dr. James Dobson and other Focus "experts."

Not only does ordering free stuff from Focus on the Family, sent to myself or people I don't like, satisfy a deeply juvenile impulse, it has the added benefit of taking money directly out of homo-hater Dobson's pocket.

Sam Farr's Town Hall in Santa Cruz: Is the problem Farr or the system?

Santa Cruz, CA, 25.08.2006 03:38

Congressman, Sam Farr, held a "town hall" meeting on Monday in Santa Cruz at the Vet's Hall. It appeared that he showed up to rally his Democrat supporters, however, it was very clear that Farr was mostly at odds with the crowd in attendance. While attendees brought up a myriad of issues, the people's concern for the U.S. bombings and invasions of other countries overwhelmed the dialog. Farr did sign the Declaration of Peace, but did not offer other hopes to end U.S. driven war.

This meeting reminds us of the limited power our elected officials have to change policy which we are concerned about, such as ending U.S.-led war, such as in Iraq, and violent occupations, such as in Palestine and Haiti, or other issues such as higher education budgets and a violence-free and welcoming immigration policy. Is it the system that fails? Is it Farr that fails? What are we going to do? Read more

The Dark Side of Post-Soviet Development in Kazakhstan

San Francisco Bay Area, 25.08.2006 03:38

The sounds of construction are ubiquitous in Almaty. Pounding jackhammers, whining saws, and lumbering bulldozers are at work on almost every block of this green, mountain-rimmed Central Asian city. This breakneck development takes place alongside the expensive bistros and Mercedes dealerships that cater to a new generation reveling in the riches of recently discovered oil and gas reserves, giving this city-once considered a sleepy Soviet outpost-a powerfully wealthy and cosmopolitan veneer.

But all is not well in this city lauded as an economic giant in the region, a model of expedient privatization and post-Soviet development. Kazakhstan's reality check lies only a few miles outside the city center where a growing movement of discontent among those left behind by the recent boom tells a very different story and reveals a country developing on the shaky foundations of corruption and disparity.



Darfuris Make Their Demands

San Francisco Bay Area, 25.08.2006 03:38

Sixteen year old "Moro" is reputed to be one of the fiercest fighters from the rebel battalion based in Muzbat, a North Darfuri village now transformed into a Sudanese Liberation Army (SLA) base. Unlike his jovial comrades, Moro has the stern look of a hardened soldier. He shows me a bullet casing tightly wrapped in leather and dangling from his necklace. "As long as I wear this [the military and Janjaweed] can't kill me," he said last June. What has made him so fierce? "Circumstances," he says bluntly. "Because they burned our homes and stole our property."

Although the soulful, salsified beats on his new album "Louder than Fiction," give it the vibe of hand-clapping party album, Rico's words encourage folks to expand their minds instead of just losin' them. Whether performing with his Afro-Latin hip-hop band Agua Libre or dropping tracks with The Coup and dead prez, Rico reps like a Puerto Rican Chuck D. who ain't afraid to smile.

Alternatives to Senator Cantwell in Washington

Portland, 25.08.2006 00:38

"No, I don't think it was a mistake." - Senator Maria Cantwell of Washington State on January 19th, 2006 re-emphasizing her unyielding commitment to war on Iraq.

"The incumbent says she has "no regrets" for any of her numerous pro war votes. The majority of us in Washington regret very much the Iraq war, which is bankrupting us financially and morally. I am running to bring the troops and the military equipment home now and to use the billions of dollars in the war chest to rebuild America. It's time for progressive people to build a political machine against this feeling of powerlessness that the Democrats offer." - Aaron Dixon, former head of the Seattle chapter of the Black Panther Party, on why he is seeking the Green Party nomination for U.S. senate in Washington Sate.

Could Washington's Democratic primary be a replay of Connecticut's? Hong Tran is running against Cantwell in the WA Democratic primary for U.S. Senate---although you wouldn't know it if you walked passed the Demo HQ in Olympia. Like CT's Lamont, she opposes the war and advocates an immediate withdrawal. Hong Tran is challenging Cantwell.

She offers a progressive agenda, including: the quick withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq, renetotiation or withdrawal from NAFTA and CAFTA, repealing the Patriot Act, and supporting social and economic justice for all! The Democratic Primary is September 19th. It will be a mail-in ballot.

Why the Case of Lieutenant Watada Matters

Tennessee, 25.08.2006 00:09

One of the most important cases to wind its way through the military justice system since the Nuremburg trials at the end of World War II began in mid-August at Fort Lewis Washington. It involves the case of Honolulu-native First Lieutenant (1LT) Ehren Watada. In June 2006, he refused to deploy (known in the military as “missing movement”) to Iraq on the basis that doing so would be a war crime. He insists the war itself is illegal. He is the first officer to miss movement in this conflict. It is important to note that 1LT Watada agreed to deploy to Afghanistan.



An Extraordinary Day in Olympia

Portland, 24.08.2006 23:38

My preferred way of being in the world is optimistic but I have really been struggling these past few weeks. It becomes too easy to see the glass half empty and its contents pain and suffering. The world events easily challenge my basic sense of human decency. But yesterday was such an extraordinary day in Olympia that I am once again seeing the glass filled with light and hope. I headed downtown. As I crossed over the 5th avenue bridge, the salmon were running and the seals were there too.

I attended the weekly peace vigil at Sylvester Park at noon. Normally, there is a just a handful of people. Yesterday, the Japanese Peace Delegation joined, bringing their truth about the horrors of war to Olympia. Buddhists who traveled down from Seattle, whose drumming and chanting called for peace in the world, joined us.

Early that evening, the Citizen's Movement to Impeach Bush/Cheney held an informational meeting on How to Impeach a President. About twenty people came to the library to learn more. People are angry at what is happening to this country and the abuses of the President and Vice President.

Palestinian political prisoners in Israeli Al Naqab Prison are on hunger strike this week in protest of routinely being stripped naked.
