CIEs de Canarias: Más de 10.000 migrantes detenidos y tres motines durante los últimos días

estrecho / madiaq, 12.09.2006 23:37

A lo largo del verano han llegado a Canarias más de 24.000 migrantes, en su mayoría embarcados en cayucos, procedentes de las costas del África continental, primero desde Mauritania y a continuación desde Senegal. Las cifras oficiales hablan de cerca de 500 muertos en el intento, mientras que otras fuentes sitúan el número de muertos entre los 2.000 y 3.000. Según el ministro Rubalcaba, el número de migrantes internados en CIEs en el estado es de 11.000. Diferentes fuentes citan 10.000 en Canarias, - siendo la capacidad de los CIEs de esta comunidad de 5.000 plazas. La situación en los centros de internamiento es calificada por los propios sindicatos de policía como "desoladora, insoportable e insostenible". (Se trata de los centros de Hoya Fría y Las Raíces en Tenerife, Barranco Seco y La Isleta - un campamento militar - en Gran Canaria y el Matorral en Fuerteventura. Fuentes locales han comunicado a Indymedia Estrecho que en el sótano de la comisaría de Tenerife se hacinan mil personas que difícilmente pueden llegar a tenderse para dormir (continúa en "leer más").

9/11 Commemoration: American Women Demonstrate in Chains and Burkas Against Afghan Embassy on 9/11

NYC, 12.09.2006 21:38

"America did not invent human rights. In a very real sense, it is the other way around.
Human rights invented America." - President Jimmy Carter

Following that credo, on September 11, 2006, American women handcuffed and chained themselves to the Afghan Embassy in Washington, DC to protest against Hamid Karzai's oppressive government. A spokeswoman stated that this was "just the start of demonstrations against the Afghan Embassy in Washington to protest President Karzai's illegal imprisonment of innocent Americans and treatment of Afghan women."

Oaxaca: Resistance &amp; Repression

United States, 12.09.2006 17:07

In 2004, Ruiz Ortiz came to power through an election viewed by many as illegitimate and corrupt. But, after years of organizing, social movements are poised to take him out. Over the course of four months, a teachers’ strike has morphed into an all-out popular revolt. Protestors had reclaimed a state-owned television station and numerous state and corporate radio stations. All seats of government have been blockaded, forcing legislators to meet in secret and remote hotels outside the City of Oaxaca. A parallel and popular governance has formed and is gaining legitimacy as the true authority in the state. Ruiz Ortiz’s exit is whispered through the streets, painted on city walls, and demanded by daily direct actions.

98-0 for More War

Portland, 12.09.2006 10:08

Ninety-eight senators last week voted more tens of billions for war, while not one senator has signed Declaration of Peace or related bills. (Two senators did not vote: Chaffee & Lieberman.) The senate has no problem with continuing to fund war, yet has infinite trouble even voting on Department of Peace, let alone passing it, as another example.

In the PacNW, Cantwell, Murray, Smith, Wyden, all united to sign onto more war. None has signed Declaration of Peace, & the deadline is September 21. I think there'll be some visits to congressional offices nationwide.



West Nile Confirmed in Multnomah County

Portland, 12.09.2006 10:08

Public health officials have confirmed today that two dead birds found in Multnomah County have tested positive for West Nile Virus. Both birds were from the corvid family. Looks like it might be a good idea to take some mosquito precautions.

This is not the deadly bird flu that has been making its way across the world in migrating bird populations. West Nile is a much less virulent disease, and cannot be spread to people by either birds or other humans. It is spread by mosquitoes, through their bites. There is no need to panic, as most people with West Nile experience either no symptoms, or very mild, flu-like symptoms. Fewer than 1% of people who get the disease will ever go on to develop the much more serious complications that have made headlines in the past.



Military training at Portland Public Schools

Portland, 12.09.2006 10:08

Heads up everyone! My daughter, age 10, brought home a flyer from school saying that they were to have "educational training" in science, math, etc. at the Jackson Armory and Portland Air Base. Personally I think its the beginning of military indoctrination and sorting out children at an early age to be coroprate soldiers. To quote the flyer:

"STARBASE is a partnership between Portland Public Schools, and the Oregon National Guard. Congressional appropriations were avaliable through the Secretary of Defense for this innovative program as part of the National Guard's commitment. The Oregon National Guard is providing facilities at the Jackson Armory, Portland Air Base and volunteer Oregon National Guard personel to serve as guests speakers during five days of field experiences."

Personally I see Donald Rumsfeld funding soldiers to talk to my child as a red flag. How about you?



&quot;One Man Parade&quot; - BushCo Must Go!!

Portland, 12.09.2006 10:08

About 5 months ago, I decided that I'd had enough of the charade I felt we all were living abiding the corruption of the Bush Administration!! I had grown tired of feeling voiceless in the face of the GOP scandals surfacing weekly, the threat of nuclear war with Iran looming, the undermining of the integrity of our elections, our government's moral bankruptcy on the various human rights issues facing the world, and the utter dismantling of the civil rights guaranteed to Americans through the Constitution. I felt the need to try to stimulate more political consciousness, and more ACTION, among fellow progressives, and even conservatives, who believe that NOW is the time to ACT.

I decided to carry a sign wherever I go in Portland, essentially becoming, as one passerby dubbed me, a "one man parade." My aim is to try to make people think... "Wow, if this guy is so committed and so passionate that the Bush Administration (hereafter BushCo) is destroying the USA, he is daily carrying a sign and connecting with hundreds/thousands of people on the way to and from work, maybe I should be doing more, or at least something... I, too, am disgusted with what is happening to this country, under the leadership of a cadre of politicians that doesn't believe in any role for Government beyond making war and enriching the wealthy!"

London, Ontario, 12.09.2006 04:14

Last Saturday local artists and activists gathered for the London Indie Media Fair in the exhibition space at the Forest City Gallery. Some participants came to the Fair to sell or trade their work, while others (including London Indymedia) were there to build support for their projects.

Culture of Silence

London, Ontario, 12.09.2006 04:14

Over the past year many Ontario cities have seen a dramatic escalation in the commission of gun crimes, London is no different. The city has been the site of several violent incidents, many with tragic results. An alarming consequence of the increased gun violence is the development of a culture of silence. People are unwilling to discuss the growing epidemic and this further enflames the problem. Thus, efforts must be made to highlight the issues surrounding the surge of gun violence in London.

Legal Battle to Protect Mountain Comes to San Francisco This Week

San Francisco Bay Area, 11.09.2006 22:40

On Thursday, September 14th, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals will hear arguments in a legal battle that, many believe, could decide the future of American Indian religious freedom and the ecological integrity of the San Francisco Peaks. The mountain in question is located in Northern Arizona, and is held sacred by some 13 Native American nations. Tribes and environmental groups have united to halt development plans to expand a Ski Resort and to use treated sewage effluent to make artificial snow on the sacred peaks. A caravan from Flagstaff, Arizona will be welcomed to SF on Wednesday, September 13th, and several events will be held that day and the next.

5 Years Later: U.S. Government Complicity on 9/11

Portland, 11.09.2006 21:38

Today marks 5 years since September 11th 2001 and the infamous events of that day. Though the U.S. government quickly imposed its story of what happened upon the people of this nation and the world, a trickle of voices asked questions and had doubts. That trickle became a stream and is now a river moving with a power that can no longer be shut up. A significant percentage of the people of the country believe or suspect that the US government had a hand in 9/11. Dr. Robert Bowman, former air force pilot, stated before a large conference audience that at the very least top levels of the U.S. government allowed 9/11 to happen and that is high treason and conspiracy to commit murder and they should be removed from office and incarcerated.

9/11 - Five Years On - A Bristol Perspective

Bristol, 11.09.2006 11:38

Living in the Shadow of Bin Laden summary Anarchist606 writes: I heard about the first plane from a work colleague who was sat on the desk next to me. It seemed pretty unreal. I checked the net to see what was going down. Breaking news was a plane had hit the world trade centre ... In 2001 incidents of terrorism are running at about 1700 per year, globally ... Flashback to then. As the second plane hits, the net goes down. I can not remember a time then or since that this had happened. At first the BBC site went to a text only version, then that too would go ... Soon after this Bu$h would declare that either you are with him or with the terrorists. Rumsfeld would take the Iraq war plans off the backburner and once more put them into motion. In Afghanistan, Bin Laden would argue with Al-Zarqawi about how the US would respond to his attacks. Al-Zarqawi says they will attack Iraq and set off there to prepare for their coming.Now – there is a vigil in Bristol each day to protest the wars. This has been going on since they started bombing Afghanistan. In Bristol there are also companies who make missiles that they use in the war on terror. Dick Cheney said that this war would not end in our lifetimes. A forever war. As if to prove this, the war in Afghanistan that we have supposedly won, still rumbles on there with no end in sight ... Now – the forever war takes in Iraq to sit alongside Afghanistan, Colombia and Palestine in their crusade for enduring freedom. During this war on terror they would use torture, cluster bombs, detention without trial, phosphorus shells, depleted uranium and bomblets ... In 2005 incidents of terrorism are running at around 5100 per year. Since that day when Bin Laden killed 2,973 people to set his agenda, the west's fury and blundering would add another 62,006 dead to the tally ... Cost of war so far: $313,693,687,636 and counting.Before – A couple of years after 911, I would hold my nose and vote Lib Dem to oust Neo-Labour in the national election. They won in Bristol West. The media, taking their cue from Neo-Labour ... said people don't care about the war. I did. In the run up to the largest ever demo sends coach after coach from here to London to say No War. Bliar ignored us ... He said history would be his judge. Instead the dead of Iraq, Afghanistan and Palestine are his judge ... Now; I want us out of Iraq and Afghanistan. I want the billions spent on war to go on making poverty history. I want Neo-Labour to consume itself in an orgy of destruction ... (epitaph; 'Here lies the Labour Party 1900-2006, an opportunity lost. May future generations learn from our failure.') ... I want the court to issue an arrest warrant for Bliar on charges of war crimes. I want Bin Laden caught and put on trial in the Hague. I want the Fairford disarmers to be acquitted and offered the Freedom of the City of Bristol.
