Protester Arrested at U.S. Capitol Asks: What About the First Amendment?

Portland, 28.09.2006 10:38

A rally against the Iraqi War at the U.S. Capitol, on Tuesday, September 26, 2006, led to the arrests of 71 protesters by the police, according to a spokesperson for one of the organizers. The passionate demonstration was co-promoted by the "National Campaign for Nonviolent Resistance" (NCNR) and the "Declaration of Peace" organizations. These conscience-driven advocacy groups, antiwar and/or religious based, endorse the laudable principle of nonviolent resistance to and noncooperation with "the U.S. government, the military, the corporate merchants of war, and all institutions that feed" the War, Mayhem and Death Machine of the Halliburton-challenged and Big-Oil-oriented Bush-Cheney Gang. The specific focus of the activists today was on pressuring the U.S. Congress to "develop a comprehensive and rapid peace plan" for ending the Iraqi conflict and for bringing the troops home.

One of the protesters arrested was Max Obuszewski of Baltimore. He's with the NCNR. He demanded to know from the police before being cuffed by them: "What about the First Amendment?" Obuszewski, with eleven other activists, was arrested on the west side of the Capitol for trying to deliver a symbolic coffin to the U.S. Congress. As they were carrying the coffin along the sidewalk, the activists were yelling out slogans like: "This is what democracy looks like!" "We demand an end to the occupation of Iraq!" "No more killing!" "No more war!""We are not afraid!" and "No more war in the name of 9/11!" Prior to the start of today's event, Obuszewski told me: "We want to bring the war home to the Congress. Unless you cut off the funding, the war is going to continue. More money for the war means more dead U.S. soldiers and more dead Iraqis. We are taking this coffin to the Capitol because they [the Congress] are the people responsible for all the deaths."

Monday October 2nd 2006 @ Cube Cinema. Doors open 7.30pm, film starts at 8pm. £3/4 though nobody turned away for lack of funds. With the recent news that over 300 British soldiers executed for cowardice are to be given pardons, this months film night turns it's attention to war, duty and humanity with a rare screening of the classic anti-war film 'Paths of Glory'. Made in 1957 by legendary director Stanley Kubrick (Spartacus, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Full Metal Jacket & Eyes Wide Shut) and staring Kirk Douglas. The film tells the loosely true story of five French soldiers executed for mutiny during World War I; their families sued, and while the executions were ruled unfair, two of the families received one franc each, while the other three received nothing.

Desalination and War Profiteering in the City of Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz, CA, 28.09.2006 07:38

Anyone who lives in California for any length of time realizes that the water supply for our state is a contentious issue. Along the Central Coast, the most recent issue is the use of desalination - an energy-intensive process that removes salt from seawater. The technology in use is called reverse osmosis and involves using powerful pumps to force water through specialized membranes which exclude charged ions (salt, for example) but allow water and other neutral species to pass through.

The City Council of Santa Cruz and the Water Department have moved forward with a proposal to build a trial desalination project plant on the Westside of Santa Cruz at the Long Marine Lab site. In November of 2005, the City Council approved a contract with the global engineering firm Camp Dresser and Mckee, INC (CDM) in the amount of $3.2 million. No construction has yet taken place, but the proposal is moving forward.

While most proposals on the table for desalination in the Monterey Bay area involve the construction of 'research pilot plants' in Santa Cruz and Moss Landing, this may simply be a deceptive maneuver whose real intent is to use the permits for the 'research plants' as a gateway to building large-scale desalination systems.

Are you being Taken for a Ride?

Rochester, 27.09.2006 22:07

trolley/a> On September 29th (This Friday!) at 7PM, Rochester Indymedia, in conjunction with TV Dinner, will be screening Taken for a Ride, which "reveals the tragic and little known story of an auto and oil industry campaign, led by General Motors, to buy and dismantle streetcar lines. Across the nation, tracks were torn up, sometimes overnight, and diesel buses placed on city streets."

"The highway lobby then pushed through Congress a vast network of urban freeways that doubled the cost of the Interstates, fueled suburban development, increased auto dependence, and elicited passionate opposition. Seventeen city freeways were stopped by citizens who would become the leading edge of a new environmental movement," states the website.

The film is 52 minutes long and was directed by Jim Klein. It will be showing after Critical Mass.

What: A screening of Taken for a Ride
When: September 29th at 7:00PM
Where: St. Joseph's House of Hospitality at 402 South Avenue
Why: After event for Critical Mass

What is Critical Mass?
"Critical Mass is a monthly bicycle ride to celebrate cycling and to assert cyclists' right to the road. The idea started in San Francisco in September 1992 and quickly spread to cities all over the world. Critical Mass has no leaders, and no central organization licenses rides. In every city that has a CM ride, some locals simply picked a date, time, and location for the ride and publicized it, and thus the ride was born. CM is an idea and an event, not an organization."

109 Rounded Up In Sacramento Area for “Immigration Violations”

San Francisco Bay Area, 27.09.2006 21:08

On Monday, September 25, federal authorities asserted U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers have arrested 109 people on suspected immigration violations, throughout the Sacramento area, including 12 in Lodi. The raids were part of the government's "Operation Return to Sender" campaign of cracking down on undocumented immigrants. The raids are strikingly similar to the recent roundups in Santa Cruz on September 7th and 8th, where 107 were arrested by ICE officials in a move that infuriated the community.

Stop the Illegal Logging of Eight Mile Meadow

Portland, 27.09.2006 18:08

In response to this week's controversial decision to log Eight Mile Meadow, possibly as early as next week, Bark will be leading an emergency hike to the area. If we are unsuccessful in halting plans to log Eight Mile Meadow, hike attendees may be the last visitors to this sensitive region before logging begins. We remain hopeful that this forest can be spared from the continually destructive logging on Mt. Hood. The hike will include a strategy discussion on what options are left to protect Eight Mile Meadow. By witnessing a standing forest, you can become its most effective advocate.

Hike this Sunday (Oct 1st). Meet at the Daily Grind, located at 4026 SE Hawthorne at 8:45 am.

Universal Health Care Passed: Schwarzenegger Promises Veto

San Francisco Bay Area, 27.09.2006 06:38

SB 840, the 'Universal Health Care' bill, was passed by the California State Senate on Aug. 31, and would provide health care coverage to all California residents through a state-run, single-payer system, ending the need for private insurance companies.

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's promise to veto Senate Bill 840 ensures that the health care system of California will remain privately run.

Torture Survivor Disappeared in Argentina

San Diego, 27.09.2006 05:38

This past August Argentina celebrated the first conviction of the many perpetrators of torture during that country’s military dictatorship. “El turko Julian” was sentenced to twenty-five years in prison. Now, just over a month later, the population awaits the results of DNA testing to confirm the first disappearance of Argentina’s democracy – Julio Lopez - and the first in over 30 years.

Fellow survivor Patricia Indiana Isasa has also been tirelessly pursuing justice against nine torturers. She and other torture survivors are receiving strange and threatening phone calls, but Patricia will not be deterred.

2006 Disorientation Guide

Santa Cruz, CA, 27.09.2006 05:38

The Disorientation Guide is a radical resource published by an open collective and distributed for free at the beginning of Fall quarter. It's for new students, for the Santa Cruz community, and for everyone who wants to get more informed, active, or involved in the radical history of the campus and the rich networks of organizations and coalitions at UCSC and in Santa Cruz.

This is the fourth consecutive year that the Disorientation Guide has been distributed on this campus, adding to the lineage of others, published in 1977, 1982, and 1984. Similar guides are also circulated at universities such as Berkeley, MIT, Yale, U of Texas, Austin, and Concordia, among many others. It was baked lovingly by a collective of students who are excited to see new faces joining us in our tradition of thoughtful resistance. Read more and download the Disorientation Guide
