Pro-War Diane Feinstein, What Are The Alternatives?

Santa Barbara, 29.08.2006 15:08

Feinstein herself has directly profiteered from the U.S. imposed misery she voted for in Iraq. Her husband, Richard Blum, is a billionaire investor that together with CEO Ronald Tutor own investment companies that hold 75% of the voting stock in a company called Perini. On March 12, 2004 Perini was awarded a $500,000,000 contract for rebuilding the electrical infrastructure of southern Iraq. So Feinstein is profiting from the U.S. bombing of the Iraqi infrastructure as well as its inefficient rebuilding by private U.S. contractors.

when it comes to katrina, spike ain't cicero (film review)

Boston, 29.08.2006 14:08

Oak Bluffs, Mass - The isle of Martha’s Vineyard provides intriguing theater in mid and late august, particularly for black folk of means. There’s a “history”, and culture and cash often collide. This year cinema entered the equation on the evening of August 23rd when filmmaker Spike Lee, a summer resident of the island, rolled on and rolled out, his version of the events around August 29, 2005 when a hurricane named Katrina slammed into the gulf regions of Florida, Louisiana, and Mississippi. On August 30th, the levees designed to protect “n’Orleans” broke, sending torrents of water and death into the city’s primarily Black and poor 9th Ward. “On the Vineyard…high cotton”, Mr. Lee said. “Lobster and stuff…Chardonnay. Think about ‘em over in the muck of New Orleans.”

Hackers e animalisti s'icontrano...

Switzerland, 29.08.2006 10:37

Due importanti eventi controculturali si svolgeranno in contemporanea, agli inizi di settembre, nella vicina Italia, l'Hackmeeting06 e l'Incontro Nazionale per la Liberazione Animale.

:: Hackmeeting06
Si sta costruendo anche il nono hackmeeting, il consueto incontro annuale delle controculture digitali italiane. Al solito autogestito, autofinanziato e aperto a tutt* coloro che intendono sporcarsi le mani nella tecnologia, nell'informatica e nell'autogestione della propria vita, l'incontro si terra' nella citta' di Parma dal 1 al 3 settembre 2006 in uno spazio occupato per l'occasione. Offrira' a chi lo vivra' un modo diverso di pensare la rete tramite seminari, giochi, hacking, discussioni, laboratori e workshops e la possibilità di imparare a comunicare le proprie idee.

:: Incontro per la liberazione animale
L'obiettivo primario dell'incontro, che si svolgerà dall'1 al 3 settembre a Montepastore (BO) è quello di allargare e migliorare la rete di attivisti e di gruppi locali, in modo che il cambiamento di rotta di questa società basata sullo sfruttamento parta dal basso, da chi predilige non delegare ma autorganizzarsi.

Xicana Moratorium Day Celebrated in San Francisco

San Francisco Bay Area, 29.08.2006 06:39

Xicana Moratorium Day was celebrated on Sunday, August 27th in San Francisco's Dolores Park. The yearly event commemorates the original Chicano Moratorium Day in Los Angeles in 1970, when 30,000 marched and police rioted, killing three people. Youth in an organization called Huaxtec now organize the commemorative event. This year, around 1,500 people went to Dolores Park to enjoy hip-hop and roots Xicana music. The theme of the 2006 Xicana Moratorium was "Stop the Violence on the Borders and in the Streets." Photos

Remembering Katrina and the Need for Climate Justice

DC, 29.08.2006 03:09

Nearly one year after Katrina struck the Gulf Coast, the Bush-Cheney Gang has done little, on the issue of global warming, to prevent another devastating disaster. At a rally, on Aug. 26, 2006, at the main headquarters of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Adm. (NOAA), Mike Tidwell, the author of “The Ravaging Tide,” charged that unless something is done now about the warming of our global atmosphere, more Katrinas are on their way.

Student fingerprinting - not so VeriCool

United Kingdom, 28.08.2006 23:08

While the national ID card scheme has been watered down a little, moves continue to increase tracking of us by using biometrics. One 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. Let us start by looking at one particular case, Impington Village College (IVC) on the outskirts of Cambridge.

Read on for the full story.

Ribbon Cutting on Completion of Missing Link to Southwest Bike Path This Monday -- Murray Street Underpass

Madison, 28.08.2006 21:09

Considered elsewhere as the "bicycling capital of the Midwest", the City of Madison lives up to its bicycling reputation this Monday, August 28, at 11:00 AM with a mayor-attended ribbon cutting ceremony in downtown Madison near the UW-campus, to recognize the successful completion of construction of an 18-mile loop running throughout Southwest and central Madison.



Regional ARA actions against the NSM last saturday

Madison, 28.08.2006 21:09

On the 25th After more than a month of promotion and trying to persuade people into caring about something so obvious as fascism in our own backyards we managed to attract a relatively small but more experienced group of down ass folk from the Midwest (mainly from Milwaukee, Madison, and Chicago). We held a regional ARA meeting the day before the NSM rally to come to a consensus about what we were willing as a group to do and what seemed possible with the numbers present. Since actual confrontation didn’t seem likely with the projected numbers of the police being 500, with the numbers of our small group being about 20 at the meeting, and 3 layers of fencing, our strategies focused on intimidation of NSM members and prevention or at least a delay of the arrival of their police escorted convoy.

kontraŭfaŝismo (eo)

Barcelona, 28.08.2006 16:09

70 jarojn post la puĉo kaŭzinta la Hispanan Enlandan Militon, ĉu ne jam temp' estas por la justeco?

Dum la 20a jarcento multegaj landoj spertis militajn konfliktojn kaj diktatorajn aŭ perfortajn periodojn, sed post demokratiiĝo oni iel okazigis revizian procezon, riparadon kaj justecon por la viktimoj de tiaj reĝimoj kaj por la socio. La Hispana Ŝtato, kun unu el la plej malnovaj kaj longaj perfortaj reĝimoj ankoraŭ staras malantaŭ multaj aliaj landoj, kiel Argentino aŭ Ĉilio, suferintaj post ĝi similajn reĝimojn. La laŭdire modela transiro, la laŭŜtupa demokratiiĝo kaj bela titolo por leĝo ne forgesigu nin, ke oni devas fari justecon, restarigi la memor-kulturon, malaperigi la restaĵojn de la faŝismo en niaj vilaĝoj kaj ripari la doloron de la viktimoj de ;terura diktaturo, kia estis la frankismo.

Fari justecon ankaŭ postulas la restarigon de la memorkulturo sen fortranĉoj: Emfaza NE al la leĝo de la hispana registaro pri la "Historia Honto" ::: bedaŭro kaj elreviĝo de la Komisiono por la Digno antaŭ la leĝopropono publikigita de la hispana registraro ::: pledoj por nuligi la juĝojn de la faŝismo kaj fari justecon ::: Omaĝo de Ariadna Pi al la batalintoj kaj rezistintoj de julio 1936

L'odissea di Erdogan in Svizzera

Switzerland, 28.08.2006 16:07

Da diversi mesi è in atto una mobilitazione popolare con lo scopo di impedire l'estradizione, dalla Svizzera verso la Turchia, di E. Erdogan. Quest'ultimo, militante politico, ha fatto richiesta di asilo per cercare di sfuggire all'ergastolo inflittogli dallo stato turco che lo accusa, dal 2002, sulla base di dichiarazione ottenute tramite tortura, dell'uccisione di un poliziotto.
Erdogan è stato arrestato il 21 febbraio 2006 a Biel-Benken (BL) e in seguito trasferito in quattro prigioni differenti. Dal 10 al 31 luglio ha portato avanti uno sciopero della fame per denunciare il trattamento ricevuto dall'amministrazione svizzera, la criminalizzazione della lotta del popolo kurdo e l'uso della tortura da parte della Turchia.

L'estradizione di Erdogan non sarebbe un caso isolato. Le pretese da parte della Turchia per l'estradizione dei rifugiati politici stanno aumentando. A causa dell'inasprimento della legge sull'asilo, diventa sempre più difficile sia per i rifugiati politici che per i rifugiati per ragioni umanitarie, vivere legalmente in Svizzera.

Proteste für bedingungslose Rechte - ein Jubiläum?

Austria, 28.08.2006 14:37

"Am 30. August 2006 ruft die Initiative: Ehe ohne Grenzen bereits den 20. Mittwoch in Folge zu einer Kundgebung vor dem Innenministerium in Wien, um gegen staatliche Rassismen zu protestieren. Außer "unmoralischer Angebote" kam von Seiten der PolitikerInnen und Beamten kein Entgegenkommen. Statt dessen gab es zahlreiche ablehnende Bescheide. So gibt es für viele Menschen nach wie vor ein de-facto Heiratsverbot in Österreich, vielen bereits verheirateten Paaren wird das Zusammenleben erschwert oder verunmöglicht, Schubhaft und Abschiebung inclusive. Dabei kommt es immer wieder zu Misshandlungen und Folter... Kein Wunder also, dass viele Menschen in Österreich (und anderen Ländern der EU) nicht ohne Angst leben können. Widerstand gegen Rassismen und Ausgrenzung inclusive.



Higher Ed. in NYC: NYU's GSOC to Drop Strike as New Year Begins

NYC, 28.08.2006 14:08

we'll let you know that as the year begins we will not be on strike. This is primarily because the turnover the bargaining unit is so large each year (probably about a quarter of workers are replaced) that last year's strike authorization vote would no longer have legitimacy. Our pressure campaign continues, however, as we work to organize the group of brand new employees who start work over the next two weeks, and we expect exciting things to happen this semester.

City College of NY (CCNY) like Hunter College, which is the only other 4-year CUNY college where there are dorms, reserves a huge chunk of its housing for the CUNY Honors program, which which is a program that is at the forefront of creating an elite section of the university in the 4-year colleges of CUNY, through scholarships to students primarily based on standardized test scores- which are not actually a good marker of a students actual intellgence, but rather, their class and race.

Portland, 28.08.2006 01:38

For six years before I left to run for Sheriff of Multnomah County, I worked with homeless men, as the de-facto day to day manager of a homeless men's shelter in Portland. From this position I had an opportunity to observe the other major players in the local homeless business. And believe me, it is a business. Unfortunately, over the years I came to realize that neither the nomeless population they serve nor the tax payers that foot the bills are top priority of these agencies. What is priority?
