The Threat That is Fort Detrick

Baltimore, 30.09.2006 22:08

Fort Detrick in Frederick, Maryland is on its way to becoming the most dangerous developer and repository of chemical and biological weaponry--superbugs capable of cruel and mass deaths almost beyond imagination.

San Francisco Bay Area, 30.09.2006 21:08

Proposition 85, the "Waiting Period and Parental Notification Before Termination of a Minor's Pregnancy" initiative, would amend California's state constitution to young women under the age of 18 from obtaining abortion care without government-mandated parental notification. Prop 85 is one of the initiatives on the ballot for the Tuesday, November 7th, 2006 general election in California. Opponents of Prop 85 point out that California's adolescent pregnancy, birth, and abortion rates have declined in the last ten years.

Now It's The Turn Of The 'B52 Two' To Face Trial

Bristol, 30.09.2006 19:38

Following the trial of Margaret Jones and Paul Milling - known as the 'Fairford Disarmers' - which ended with no clear verdict, now Phil Pritchard and Toby Olditch - known as the 'B52 Two' - face trial. The trial begins Monday 2nd October at Bristol Crown Court, and is expected to last up to two weeks. During March 2003, fourteen U.S B52 bombers arrived at RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire. These were the very same bombers which had been used to carpet bomb Vietnam a generation earlier. Protests broke out in opposition, and escalated. Others broke in and attempted to prevent, or delay, their take off, and the bombing of Iraq which began on 20th March 2003. "Oxford peace activists Philip Pritchard and Toby Olditch entered RAF Fairford and attempted to disarm USAF B-52 bombers early on 18th March 2003. Their decision to take this peaceful direct action was a response to absolute frustration; that all previous international pressure and efforts to prevent the prosecution of an illegal and unjustified war had come to nothing." More On The 'B52 Two' WebsiteGreen writes: We are inviting people to come at any point during the trial. There will be a gathering of supporters at 9am on Monday 2nd October outside the Court. Please show your support! There will be cakes and pretty banners! Full Article. Bristol Crown Court is on Small Street, off Corn Street, in the Centre. Margaret Jones writes: They're charged with the same thing as Paul and me - conspiracy to commit criminal damage. They were trying to reach a B-52 bomber to disable it, when they were both arrested. Naturally Paul and I, while awaiting our re-trial, are watching ... how this second trial may turn out. Paul and I had magnificent support, which I shall remember with deep gratitude all my life. We hope people will feel moved to come down and offer similar backing to Phil and Toby. Also to Josh Richards, when his trial comes up in Nov.

BNP Action in Loughborough

United Kingdom, 30.09.2006 13:08

Get out to stop the BNP! Campaign to stop the BNP in forthcoming
Loughborough Shelthorpe Ward by-election

*****Important leafleting this Sunday 1st October *****
Assemble 11am outside McDonalds on Ling Road/Shelthorpe Road roundabout

Leicester Unite Against Fascism are calling a day of action to leaflet Loughborough Shelthorpe Ward against the fascist British National Party this Sunday. The fascist British National Party(BNP) are standing in the election on Thursday 5th October in Loughborough Shelthorpe Ward. Shelthorpe is a largely white working class estate in Loughborough and the BNP have been campaigning on the issue of a recently opened East Midlands regional immigration reporting centre. The seat is a two councillor seat and both seats were won at the last election by the Labour Party. There are fears that a low turnout may provide opportunities for the fascists. The fascist BNP is relying on a low turnout in order to get elected. The vast majority of people in Shelthorpe oppose the fascist BNP and can use their vote to stop the BNP.

The French government is participating in war crimes and is violating international law and the Non Proliferation Treaty by developing new nuclear weapons instead of reducing nuclear armaments. International activists from Scotland, England, Belgium, Germany, The Netherlands and Sweden participated in the action and entered the base in small groups to inspect the area and search for evidence of testing sites.

2006 SFA Encuentro a springboard for action

United States, 30.09.2006 09:07

From September 21-24, over sixty young activists and organizers from across the country gathered in Immokalee, Florida for the 2nd annual Student/Farmworker Alliance Encuentro: three days of reflection, discussion, and strategizing about the struggle for fair food and building a more just world. Youth and student leaders from more than 15 states and representing more than 30 organizations and campuses – a sample of the breadth of support that the Coalition of Immokalee Workers(CIW) can count on in the months and years ahead – participated in the Encuentro. Old and new allies from Southern Illinois to Miami, from UC Santa Cruz to Notre Dame, from the Bronx to Southern Mississippi, came together for this important weekend in the birthplace of the CIW.



This year's Encuentro took place against the backdrop of an escalating campaign against the multi-billion dollar McDonald's Corporation – the largest fast-food chain on the planet and an enormous buyer of Florida tomatoes. As in the four-year Taco Bell Boycott, student and youth organizing will play a critical role in the campaign's overall success. The weekend in Immokalee inspired and re-energized the SFA network, serving as an important springboard for the work ahead as we turn McDonald's marketing "sweet spot" (18 to 24 year-olds) into a well-organized sore spot. full 2006 Encuentro report || 2006 Encuentro photo gallery

The First Cross-Border Encuentro of La Otra Campaña: Summary

San Diego, 30.09.2006 07:38

The First Cross-Border Encuentro of La Otra Campaña was held in Tijuana and San Diego September 15-17.

A key component of the Zapatista Other Campaign, originating with the Sixth Declaration of the Selva Lacandona, is a tour of Mexico to offer an alternative to the farce of electoral politics, by documenting the struggles of and listening to "the simple and humble people" - a national program of struggle from Below.

The EZLN Sixth Commission's tour has been suspended since the brutal attack by state and federal forces on the people of San Salvador Atenco May 3-4. Local groups working with La Otra Campaña organized the Cross-Border Encuentro as the Sixth Commission focused its attention on solidarity with the people of Atenco.

In Tijuana, 250 compañer@s heard from activist panels discussing women in resistance movements; indigenous struggles; autonomy; culture and art; culture and media; resistance against borders; and resistance against climate change and environmental destruction; as well as music, dance and theater from the struggle.

In San Diego, parallel meetings on the 15th and 17th were organized as freeflowing, participatory roundtable discussions that covered diverse topics, including women, patriarchy and machismo; personal connections with La Otra; listening as a tactic; maquiladora workers; struggles and resistance north of the border; and community building vs. armed revolution.

The Sixth Commission recently announced that it will resume its journey on October 9, following the arrival of reinforcements to work for the release of Atenco prisoners, and will travel to Tijuana for a cross-border meeting planned for October 18.

Center for Constitional Rights CONDEMNS DEFEAT OF SPECTER AMENDMENT TO PRESERVE HABEAS

DC, 30.09.2006 06:10

"With the defeat of the Specter Amendment to the Military Commissions Act, Congress has sacrificed any semblance of a meaningful balance of power. Congress is now rubber-stamping a bill that was written by the President which gives the President expansive power to detain without judicial oversight. If the Military Commissions Act is passed, it will grant the President the privilege of kings, allowing him to imprison any critics as alleged 'enemy combatants,' never to see the inside of a court room or to have the chance to challenge their detention or their treatment. What would we say if another country passed a law making it legal to snatch U.S. citizens and detain them indefinitely?

Green Party Candidate for Governor Howard Switzer Calls for Healthcare for All Tennesseans

Tennessee, 30.09.2006 02:09

Howard Switzer Refers to the Major Party Candidates for Governor as 'Killer Bs' Referring to both the Democrat and Republican candidates for governor, Bredesen and Bryson, the Green Party candidate, Howard Switzer, said "These guys are killer Bs because they both support policies that kill people unnecessarily." Primarily Mr. Switzer was referring to the estimated 18,000 people who die each year due to lack of access to the much touted great American, for-profit, healthcare system. Governor Bredesen has refered to single-payer insurance as "socialism," which it is not, and claims no one has died because he dropped them, 330,00 of them, from TennCare. "We need to join the rest of the industrialized world and provide healthcare for our people, said Switzer, "We have the most unhealthy population in the industrialized world because of our leader's penchant for profits."

San Diego, 29.09.2006 20:11

This past Saturday, with more than 300 supporters, the community shut down the attempted rally of 87 Minutemen in front of the National City, City Hall offices.

&quot;Houston with Hills&quot; once again Demonstrates Its Lack of Urban Vision

Portland, 29.09.2006 12:38

Alone among major US cities, Seattle embarks on a pro-freeway transport policy that would do the late Robert Moses proud.

People often talk about how Seattle has some sort of abnormally high commitment to urban livability and ecological values. I say: money talks, bullshit walks.

A textbook example of this disconnect between perception and ugly reality is to be found in the probable approval of an absolutely wretched freeway-construction proposal by the Seattle City Council today. With the exception of Houston, TX, Seattle is about the only major American city I can think of with a public consensus in favor of major new freeway construction.



Court Victory for FTAA Protestors

Portland, 29.09.2006 12:38

In a significant victory for constitutional rights, today, the Eleventh Circuit handed down its ruling denying qualified immunity to several officers who engaged in unlawful arrests at the demonstrations against the meetings of the Free Trade Area of the Americas in Miami, Florida, during November 2003. This ruling clears the way for the demonstrators who suffered constitutional rights deprivations to proceed with their litigation.

The case, Killmon, et al. v. City of Miami, et al., was brought to challenge the widespread assault on the civil rights and civil liberties of protestors during the demonstrations, including challenging the so-called "Miami model," a deliberate and coordinated effort by over 40 local, state and federal authorities to engaging in silence dissent and engage in widespread political profiling, and swept the streets of anyone viewed as being an anti-FTAA activist, effectively suspending the Fourth Amendment in the city for ten days using excessive force and unlawfully arresting hundreds of people engaging in lawful political protest.

Friday: Statewide Protests Against Federal Raid of Modesto MMJ Dispensary

San Francisco Bay Area, 29.09.2006 09:08

The California Healthcare Collective (CHC) in Modesto was raided on the morning of Wednesday, September 27th by local and federal agents. The homes of several dispensary workers were also raided. The city had last year banned dispensaries, except for those that are nonprofits. Last week, the Modesto City Council voted to repeal the non-profit provision, thus making the CHC "illegal," and setting the scene for the raid. Protests will be held around the state on Friday to tell the DEA that medical marijuana supporters in California will not stand for these continued attacks on medical cannabis patients. Protests will be held at 12pm outside of DEA offices in Sacramento, Oakland, San Francisco, Modesto, and other cities.

Developers are moving forward with a plan for 170 Frederick St., current site of Kingdom Hall, to build a high density, 3-story project that that would fundamentally alter the park and neighborhood. The City of Santa Cruz is only letting people know what's going on if they reside within 300 feet of the site (that's only about 100 people!). Even if you live in the area or use the park, the City thinks your voice doesn't matter.
