Global Warming Fears Rise at Bristol International

Bristol, 02.09.2006 16:37

Evening Protests Hit South West's Number One Polluter Global Warmingwrites: campaigners in Bristol today focused on Bristol Airport’s absurd plans for expansion and the harmful greenhouse emissions from air traffic, currently running at 700 million tonnes of CO2 per year in the UK. Today’s early evening airborne protest saw a banner proclaiming ‘Stop Airport Expansion’ float to the ceiling in the airport building, using helium balloons. There was no risk to travellers or staff, unlike actual air travel itself. A second ground level banner stated “Destination Climate Chaos’.

Concord Hospital Workers Stage Two-Day Strike

San Francisco Bay Area, 02.09.2006 10:08

On Monday, August 28 and Tuesday August 29, hospital workers at John Muir Medical Center's Concord Campus went on strike, urging the management to come back to the bargaining table. Without a contract since October, members of the 450-strong union have been struggling to prevent the profit-oriented John Muir management from cutting back their families' healthcare packages. Other issues of concern include the need for safe staffing guidelines, protection from unnecessary layoffs, and a ban on low-bid subcontracting.



“Walking, We Ask Questions”: The Other Campaign in Spanish Harlem

NYC, 02.09.2006 07:38

NarcoNews By RJ Maccani
The Other Journalism with the Other Campaign on the Other Side

August 31, 2006

Inspired by the Black Panther Party and Chicago’s Young Lords, the New York Young Lords Party launched a surprising first campaign in the summer of 1969. Called “The Garbage Offensive,” it was designed to force the New York City Sanitation Department to make more frequent pick-ups in East Harlem (often referred to as Spanish Harlem or simply “El Barrio”). The Garbage Offensive won the trust and respect of their neighbors and garnered the Young Lords Party local and national visibility. Although inspired by the Black Panther’s community-based programs, the New York Young Lords didn’t expect to be picking up garbage when they discussed forming an organization to improve living conditions in their primarily Puerto Rican neighborhood. Before launching their first campaign, however, the Young Lords went to their neighbors to find out what they most wanted to see changed. The Garbage Offensive was the fruit of this dialogue, the will of the people. Proudly inclusive of their Latino and Black neighbors, the New York Young Lords’ center of gravity was Nuyorican (Puerto Rican New Yorkers), and the independence of their homeland, Puerto Rico, a central concern.

No Sweat, Portland! Portland Sweatfree Event

Portland, 01.09.2006 18:39

Are taxpayers subsidizing sweatshops? Our city spends over $60 million on purchasing goods. Shouldn't these goods be free of exploitation? In response, a coalition of over 20 different labor, community, faith, and student organizations has emerged in support an ordinance that would mandate strong labor standards for city contractors, subcontractors, and vendors. Chie Abad, a former sweatshop worker from Saipan, will come to Portland to ask our city to end government purchasing from sweatshops. She will share the realities of sweatshop conditions and her involvement in the victorious campaign in which San Francisco adopted a strong sweatfree ordinance.Will Portland be next?



American Apparel Issues Further Demands of Clamor Magazine

United States, 01.09.2006 18:07

On Friday, August 25, 2006, Clamor Magazine founder Jen Angel received an email from American Apparel Media Relations Director Cynthia Semon. The email contains an embarrassing amount of typographical and factual errors for a letter alleging inaccuracies. It fabricates claims Clamor's articles did not make and makes misleading comments about factual events in the UNITE union drive.

Following is Clamor's blog post, links to the letter and rebuttal, links to a PDF of the entire section, and links to previous press releases on this topic.

Clamor has spoken to at least eight media outlets off the record that have reported similar tactics from American Apparel. We will release a full report when we have finished our research.

Clamor editors as well as the writers for this section are available for comment.

Sgt. Kevin Benderman released

Portland, 01.09.2006 10:38

On July 27, 2005, in a military court martial held at Ft. Stewart, Georgia, Sgt. Kevin Benderman was convicted of Missing Movement for allegedly refusing to board a plane for a second deployment to Iraq.

Sgt. Benderman had filed an application for Conscientious Objector status in 2004. This application was ignored, mishandled, and disrespected by every level of command in an effort to punish this 10-year veteran for exercising his rights and making a choice of conscience against the wishes of his command. Sgt. Benderman did not fit the military mold of a Conscientious Objector - he did not cite religious verses, he could not recount his moment of epiphany - but Sgt. Benderman did listen to his conscience.



Oregon Supreme Court Rejects PGE Arguments Concerning Profits on Trojan Nuclear Plant

Portland, 01.09.2006 10:38

Today's decision by the Oregon Supreme Court in Dreyer v. PGE was a significant victory for ratepayers in fight to get back from Portland General Electric Co. (PGE) the excess profits on Trojan, collected from ratepayers during the period April 1995 through September 2000.

In a carefully-reasoned opinion, the Court rejected all of the arguments presented by PGE on the merits of Plaintiffs' claims in the class action lawsuit against PGE in Marion County Circuit Court. That suit seeks to get back from PGE the over $200 million ratepayers paid to the utility for profits on Trojan between April 1995 and September 2000, plus a large amount of interest on this money. The Court agreed with Plaintiffs that their case against PGE was based on legitimate claims and that PGE was not immune from being forced to give back the money. The Court agreed that ratepayers can sue PGE directly for illegal charges included in past rates.



Congressman Blumenauer Fails to Respond to Concerns About Lebanon

Portland, 01.09.2006 10:38

Awhile back, someone posted to this site that Earl Blumenauer was refusing to admonish Israel even as they dropped bombs down on little sleeping babies in Lebanon. I could not believe that it was true. So I contacted the congressman's office. And sure enough. He not only refused to speak out against the violence, he was actually going out of his way to support Israel in this. I just couldn't believe it, and I told his staffers so. This week, I received his response. I am so saddened by it that I want to share it with others, in the hopes that they, too, might make their voices heard by the congressman.

I do not have the text for the original letter that I sent to him, nor do I remember what I said word for word. I only remember that I told him how upset I was to learn that he was refusing to condemn Israel for what it had done, and how dismayed I was to read his statement of support for Isreal in the face of little dead babies lying in the rubble in Lebanon. I was crying when I wrote it, as we all should be crying for what has been allowed to happen in this world. Here is the cold, disembodied reply that I received. Note that there is almost no mention at all of the deaths in Lebanon that were the focus of my letter to him.

Santa Cruz IMC reporter Bradley wrote on August 29th: "Oaxaca City is almost entirely closed today... I am the only tourist staying at my hostel today... I can't believe I was able to find an internet connection, this one is wireless, since almost every single door in the city is closed and locked. Since I got to Oaxaca City on August 26th, the Zocalo has been filled with people selling wares and showing videos of Oaxacan resistance, but today even the Zocalo is eerily quiet...

The radio transmissions for Radio La Ley were cut-off sometime during the (early morning hours). Radio La Ley, a corporate radio station owned by Texas based Clear Channel, was recently taken over in solidarity with Asamblea Popular del Pueblo de Oaxaca (APPO). Right now there are still about three corporate stations which have been taken over and are broadcasting vital information in solidarity with the people of Oaxaca.

A MegaMarcha will take place on September 1st starting in the community of San Felipe and ending in the center of Oaxaca City ...the details are being broadcast on the radio, both on AM and FM stations. Oaxacans are calling for (Governor) Ulises Ruiz Ortiz to leave office... The marches, along with today's closure of the city, are demonstrations of the overwhelming unification of Oaxacan civil society. I was told that Oaxaca will be open tomorrow, August 30th."

Are There Any Women in Iraq?

Baltimore, 31.08.2006 12:09

Ilario Salucci's 'Peoples History of Iraq' focuses almost exclusively on the activities of the Iraq Communist Party (ICP) and is a powerful antidote to the patronizing orientalism many leftists and anti-war activists have towards Iraq. Through the lens of the ICP, Salucci shatters the illusion that Iraq is a backward, undeveloped society dominated exclusively by a reactionary political Islam without any substantial leftist history. Revealed is a society that grows from a British-installed monarchy with an agrarian economy, through a period of communist resistance to the monarchy and colonial exploitation that was interwoven with tribal and peasant uprisings, to the labor struggles of an emerging industrial proletariat centered on the oil industry.
