palestine journal: sept. 8

Portland, 11.09.2006 09:38

"Of COURSE the U.S. will supply Israel with weapons" say the jolly hand-shaking yes-men in the senate - that's not even a question - no one in any position of power in the U.S. would dare to question that decades-old policy. It doesn't matter what Israel does with the weapons! It doesn't matter how many human rights reports, condemnations from the United Nations, and investigations show that Israel is using the U.S.- supplied weapons to attack civilians time and time again. It doesn't matter! Israel should be allowed and encouraged to attack whoever they want. If they want to kill babies by the thousand, increasing resentment against them (and in turn the U.S.) in the region - that's their business! Who are we to tell them what to do with the weapons we keep giving them!



In Memory of Fouad Kaady

Portland, 11.09.2006 09:38

<p>Words are difficult to find when trying to describe the memorial service for Fouad Kaady. Held at St. George Antiochian Church in Portland, it was beautiful and inspiring. Though we are not members, we were welcomed gladly by those who attended. I watched the young altar boys during the communion and thought about Fouad, who had been just where they were not that long ago. The woman sitting next to me, knowing that we were there to honor Fouad, told me that they miss him very much and that he was a wonderful boy. In the year since his death, I have heard that often.</p>

<p><b><i>Den Mark</i> adds:</b> It was an honor to remember Fouad with his family & friends. Their grief is wrenching & painful, but their warmth & dignity are amazing. I know this family only thru sharing the street with them at the courthouse vigil last year, but i love them. I simply love them. May they know Peace.

<p><b><i>LN</i> adds:</b> It was grand to see so many that we recognized from Indy, showing up to support these fine folks. I know that the family felt our strength. They wanted that we should convey their gratitude for Indy keeping the incident before the public eye.</p>

The Eagle Has Crash Landed

NYC, 11.09.2006 04:14

There was little doubt at the time that the eagle was soaring. Few opposed the power grab at home, the Taliban were scattered in a few weeks, and nations rushed to enlist in the “war on terror.” It was no longer just cranky Marxists who talked of imperialism; liberals and conservatives alike hailed a reinvigorated Pax Americana.

Mexican Election Declared for Conservative

San Francisco Bay Area, 11.09.2006 01:39

The Federal Electoral Tribunal, the ultimate arbiter in the Mexican system to decide the validity of an election, ruled against Andres Manuel López Obrador and his army of supporters on September 5, and declared the conservative Felipe Calderón the new President of Mexico. The Tribunal took a very conservative position when they said the PRD, López Obrador's party, had to prove to them that the vote was fraudulent, rather than the Tribunal's undertaking its own investigation. Observers say the PRD's movement and the President are on a collision course.

According to media reports, 107 people from Santa Cruz, Watsonville and Hollister have been arrested by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers in a sweep over Thursday, August 7 and Friday, August 8.

Un juez encuentra el dinero de Tindaya: Lo tenía Ben Magec

Canarias, 11.09.2006 00:09

En el asunto del agujero ese que le querían hacer al monumento natural de la Montaña de Tindaya, en Fuerteventura, se volatilizaron algunos miles de millones de las antiguas pesetas sin que se viera agujero ni se viera nada. El Gobierno de Canarias, a la vista de la dimensión mediática que estaba tomando el asunto, se fue a los tribunales junto con el PSOE que buscaba también salir en la foto.

Claro que cuando pasó el momento del escándalo mediático, como lo que importaban no eran las perras sino las cosas éstas de los políticos indecentes, de estar todo el día chupando cámara, se retiraron porque en el fondo no tenían el más mínimo interés en aclarar nada. Como siempre.

El caso es que Ben Magec - Ecologistas en Acción (organización social sin ánimo de lucro y declarada de 'utilidad pública') siguió adelante con la denuncia que inició el Gobierno de Canarias y un juez, después de tantos años, parece que ha encontrado las perras: Las tenía Ben Magec. Y por eso no sólo ha decidido el archivo de la denuncia sino obligar a Ben Magec a 'devolver' los cuartos haciéndose cargo de las costas judiciales, hecho sin precedentes porque no hubo ni temeridad, ni la denuncia la iniciaron los ecologistas, ni se ha visto nunca que juez alguno en el mundo condene a los ecologistas por ejercer la función social que corresponde a su actividad en defensa del Medio Ambiente y del interés general. A su modo de ver, que no quiere decir que vayan siempre a tener la razón.

Y, francamente, no podemos por menos que felicitar a este juez que, después de tantos años, ha comenzado a encontrar parte del dinero público que ha desaparecido con la corruptela de Tindaya. Otra cosa es que el auto nos parezca más o menos decente, que eso es lo de menos, lo que está claro es que el movimiento empresarial, político y mediático que se ha desatado en Canarias de un tiempo a esta parte, contra todo aquel que democráticamente se opone a tanta mamandurria a costa de nuestro territorio, pueda ser que se extienda a determinados sectores de la magistratura que, en el caso de Las Palmas, tiene a uno de sus jefes metido en un lío por dejar en libertad a un peligrosísimo narcotraficante.

Y no es que nadie pretenda que se le dé razón alguna a Ben Magec, pero exigirles costas en un procedimiento que ni ellos empezaron, parece francamente no sólo inaudito sino un aviso hacia los colectivo ciudadanos a los que, en lugar de facilitarles justicia gratuita dado su carácter altruista, se les advierte claramente de que la justicia está hecha sólo para los poderosos o para los políticos que se la pagan de nuestros impuestos. Una auténtica aberración democrática, una más.

Hombre, Ben Magec no va a desaparecer por esto. Y miles de ciudadanos -y entre ellos nosotros modestamente- estamos por la labor de colaborar ante semejantes atropellos que intentan apartar y arrinconar a todo tipo de colectivo social crítico, como cuando Zerolo le metió casi tres millones de multa al que convocó una manifestación por la pega de media docena de carteles, en una ciudad donde hay decenas de miles de carteles por todas partes con total impunidad. Dependiendo de quién lo firme, claro.

Sheffield Children's Hospital: Save Ward S2

United Kingdom, 10.09.2006 20:39

Protestors took to the streets of Sheffield on Saturday 9th September in response to Ward S2 in Sheffield Children's Hospital being threatened with closure.

S2 is a specialist childrens ear, nose and throat ward and its closure is part of a £3 million cuts package for the Hospital, which is just a fraction of the 3 year £100 million cuts package for the NHS in Sheffield. Hospital unions are objecting to cuts which include not filling vacancies and workers' hours being cut.

These cuts are not an isolated incident, in July there was a protest against privatisation on the 58th anniversary of the founding of the NHS. The Government's ongoing underfunding, cuts and privatisation of the National Health Service have also been covered by Cambridge and Liverpool IMCs.

Eyes Wide Open War Exhibit in Grants Pass 9-11

Rogue Valley, 10.09.2006 18:39

Grants Pass alone has lost more than $12 million to this un-ending conflict; money our community could have better spent on our libraries, schools, health care and infrastructure.

Eyes Wide Open: Cost of War Exhibit opens at 4pm on Monday, September 11 at One Eleven Evelyn and closes at 9pm on Tuesday, September 12. It is free to the public.

The exhibit -- sponsored by the American Friends Service Committee and the Social Justice Alliance of Josephine County -- is a living memorial to Oregon military personnel and all civilians killed in Iraq -- and a stark reminder of the human cost of war.

COURAGE AND RESISTANCE IN OAXACA AND MEXICO CITY

Arkansas, 10.09.2006 17:39

Editor's note: The following article, originally published on August 30 is somewhat out of date in that Mexico's presidential election has been decided by that country's election tribunal in favor of conservative candidate Felipe Calderón. Still, the supporters of López Obrador yet cry out for justice and the struggle against tyranny is yet unfolding in Oaxaca. Mexico's future remains very uncertain.



Aubonne: Letzte Berufung abgelehnt

Switzerland, 10.09.2006 15:07

Sieben Monate nach dem umstrittenen Freispruch der beiden Polizisten, die bei den G8-Protesten in Evian 2003 um ein Haar 2 Aktivisten getötet hatten, wies das Kantonalgericht Waadt nun den Revisionsantrag der AktivistInnen Martin Shaw (England) und Gesine Wenzel (Deutschland) zurück.

:: Geschichte

Im Mai 2003 blockierte ein AktivistInnengruppe die Autobahnbrücke Aubonne ("Aubonnebrücke") um einer G8 Delegation den Weg zum Gipfel in Evian zu versperren. Die Polzei durchtrennte das Kletterseil und tötete dabei beinahe zwei AktivistInnen. Der Polizist, der das Seil kappte, und sein Vorgesetzter hätten sich nun vor Gericht verantworten sollen. Die Anklage lautete "fahrlässige Körperverletzung", jedoch wurden sämtliche Verfahren gegen die Polizei eingestellt.
Die Gerichte geben somit der Polizei recht, auch in dem Punkt, dass eine freie Autobahn, resp. der Verkehrsfluss, wichtiger ist als die Unversehrtheit zweier Menschen. Auf Video-Aufnahmen der Aktion ist ersichtlich, dass es den Polizisten, trotz Warnungen von anderen Aktivisten, wie auch klarer Signalisation der Situation, wichtiger war die Autobahn möglichst schnell wieder befahrbar zu machen als Menschenleben zu schützen.

Bicycle rider hit at 34th and Belmont at about 6:45

Portland, 10.09.2006 04:38

The driver, a young white male, is in police custody. He was driving an early model 4 door red Toyota Camry with Oregon tags, speeding westbound on Belmont. Eyewitness said he blew through a 3 second red light around 45-50mph and the cyclist was traveling south saw him before she was hit. The bike sustained little damage (very good frame) but the rider was not wearing a helmet and latest reports by police were not very optimistic on her condition - they would not release her name. Another eyewitness who ran to her aid said she was not conscious and had severe head injuries. Others saw her combative on the stretcher as paramedics took her on the ambulance. PLEASE riders, lets wear our helmets. It doesn't matter how safe you ride, cars can kill. Let's all pray for her survival. contribute to this article...

Der Aufstand von Oaxaca (Mexiko)

Germany, 09.09.2006 18:38

Was im Mai als Protest streikender Lehrer begann, hat sich im Laufe der letzten Wochen und Monate zu einer Revolte entwickelt, die den gesamten Bundesstaat Oaxaca erfasst hat. Mehr als 80 Regierungsgebäude, die wichtigsten TV- und Radiostationen wurden von den Aufständischen eingenommen.
Nach der blutigen Repressionswelle von Mai/Juni war eine wichtige Forderung der Rücktritt von Governeur Ruiz. Doch schnell wurde dazu übergegangen, eine neue Verfassung zu diskutieren. Am 5.Juli erklärte die Versammlung der Menschen von Oaxaca (Pueblo de Oaxaca, APPO), der inzwischen mehr als 300 Organisationen angehören, sich zur Volksvertretung. Die alte Regierung hat sich in provisorischen Büros in Luxushotels eingerichtet und versucht mit paramilitärische Aktionen die Kontrolle zurückzuerlangen. Dabei kam es zu mehreren Morden, Brandstiftungen und Entführungen. Am 21.August wurde der von den Aufständischen übernommene TV-Sender Kanal 9 von Polizei überfallen und die Sendeanlagen zerstört, wobei mehrere Menschen von Kugeln getroffen und zum Teil schwer verletzt wurden. Nach Informationen der mexikanischen Zeitung Proceso wurden am 23.August Einheiten des 36. Infanteriebataillons nach Oaxaca verlegt. Die Generalstaatsanwältin in Oaxaca bezeichnete die Volksversammlung der APPO als "Stadtguerilla" und bestätigte, dass in der Nacht zum 22. August eine polizeiliche "Operation zur Reinigung der Straßen" in Gang gesetzt wurde.
Die Bewegung wächst weiter, ganze Gemeinden schliessen sich der Bewegung an. Zudem gibt es eine Vernetzung mit der Anderen Kampagne, die am 1.Januar 2006 von den Zapatistas ins Leben gerufen wurde und der sich weit über 1000 Organisationen angeschlossen haben. ...anderswo im Land gehen die Proteste wegen des Wahlbetruges weiter. Leider nimmt aber auch die Repression massiv zu, was zu mind. 6 Toten und vielen Verletzten führte. (5.9.). Wie erwartet hat das Wahlgericht in Mexiko den konservativen Felipe Calderón zum Präsidenten gekürt.

PETA Calls for Federal Investigation At Vanderbilt After Whistleblowers Report

Tennessee, 09.09.2006 17:09

Leaked Memo Indicates That Monkeys’ Skulls Were Drilled Into While Animals Were Conscious Nashville, Tenn. — PETA is urging the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to investigate a whistleblower complaint that experimenter Jeffrey D. Schall performed brain surgeries on macaque monkeys at Vanderbilt University without properly anesthetizing them. In addition to demanding that immediate disciplinary action be taken against Schall if he is found to have violated the federal Animal Welfare Act (AWA), PETA has also written to the national Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare to demand that Schall’s federal funding be revoked.



Fight for Houston Street Bike Lanes

NYC, 09.09.2006 17:08

Today, Peakguy, Super G and I attended a rally-slash-PR event intended to call attention to the need for a bike lane on Houston St. Houston St. is currently being redeveloped, but there are no plans to make the street safer and more accessible for cyclists. While Greenwich Village and Community Board 2 had a significant amount of input regarding the redesign, their initial focus was on pedestrian safety, and cycling issues fell by the wayside. Since the original plan for the redesign was approved, however, three cyclists have died on Houston Street, providing the impetus for the community to ask the DOT to reconsider the plan and add a bike lane. This measure is supported by just about all Manhattan luminaries short of the mayor himself: Borough President Scott Stringer, Assemblyperson Deborah Glick, Councilman Alan Gerson, Senator Tom Duane, even Speaker Christine Quinn.

As a cyclist, this seems like a no-brainer to me. But the issue of bike lanes is actually a contentious one. Drivers, of course, think they're the only thing that matters, and often feel like cyclists are nothing more than a nuisance. The DOT doesn't want the hassle of putting a lane in, because it may take precious space away from cars.

But are bike lanes even useful? Are they safe for cyclists? Well, there are pros and cons to the issue.

ASAMBLEA INTERNACIONAL DE ORGANIZACIONES Y MOVIMIENTOS CONTRA LA GUERRA Y LA GLOBALIZACIÓN NEOLIBERAL

Convoca: Foro Social de Sevilla

Ante la reunión prevista en Sevilla los próximos días 7 y 8 de Febrero de 2007 de los Ministros de Defensa de la OTAN, el Foro Social de Sevilla convoca a una Asamblea Internacional Preparatoria a todas las organizaciones y movimientos contra la guerra y la globalización neoliberal para el próximo 28 de Octubre en Sevilla. El objetivo de esta convocatoria es doble:

  • primero, preparar conjuntamente las movilizaciones y actos contra la celebración de esta Cumbre de Ministros de la Guerra, como rechazo popular y de los movimientos sociales y políticos al brazo militar de la globalización capitalista. Con este motivo, el Foro Social de Sevilla ha publicado un Manifiesto de Convocatoria Internacional a la movilización en Sevilla contra la OTAN que proponemos para su debate y que se puede ver en http://www.forosocialsevilla.org
  • segundo, discutir problemas y coordinar acciones y propuestas del conjunto del movimiento que, tanto dentro como fuera del Estado Español, rechaza y combate el neoliberalismo capitalista y su cara policial, la globalización armada y su filosofía de guerra infinita. Por tanto, convocamos también este encuentro para continuar y desarrollar la agenda organizativa y política del movimiento antiglobalización y recuperar potencial de coordinación y movilización.

Para organizar la asistencia a esta Asamblea del Movimiento Antiglobalización en Sevilla (28 de Octubre) y de cara a permitir el envío de materiales, propuestas y consultas previas, el Foro Social de Sevilla dispone de esta dirección de correo electrónico: infoencuentro@forosocialsevilla.org

Próximamente, concretaremos en forma de propuesta distintos aspectos relativos a organización, funcionamiento y metodología de trabajo de este Encuentro.

¡CONTRA LA OTAN, CONTRA LA GLOBALIZACIÓN DEL CAPITAL Y LA GUERRA!

¡OTRO MUNDO ES POSIBLE!

FORO SOCIAL DE SEVILLA

Many events are being held around the Bay Area to commemorate the fifth anniversary of September 11th, 2001. Some will focus on mourning the lives lost, while others will question the official message about how and why 911 occurred; still others will stand in opposition to the deaths of 3,000 Americans leading to tens of thousands of deaths worldwide in wars against "terrorism." September 9th events: The 5th annual 9/11 Truth Rally and March to the Power to the Peaceful Concert will begin at 10:00am at the Panhandle. At 8pm, Emergent Sea 9/11: Artists of Color Speak Up 5 Years after 'Sep 11' will be held in San Francsico, with an evening of spoken word and music.
